What is a Coaxial Cable?

Coaxial Cables are also referred commonly as coax or RF Cables. The main purpose of coaxial cables is for the transmission of radio frequency signals (RF signals). There are various reasons for which one could use a coaxial cable. Some of the more obvious purposes are:

  • Connecting radio transmitters with their antennas
  • Receivers can also be connected to their antennas via coaxial cables
  • Coaxial cables play a major role in network connectivity
  • The most common use being in the distribution of cable television to your home

A coaxial cable is made of two layers of conducting wire. The signal is transmitted by reflection from one conductor and then back to the other. This unique architecture of a coaxial cable is also its greatest advantage. Whenever a wire transmits signals, an electromagnetic field is set up around it. This electromagnetic field can wreck havoc on your other communication devices and might also lead to signal loss also called attenuation. However, with a coaxial cable what is inside the cable remains within the cable. So, none of the above mentioned problems need to be troubleshot.
