Coaxial Cable – The Guide to Choosing The Right Type

Have you ever nurtured the thoughts that all cables perform the same function? Well, that is not true! Coaxial cables are an integral part of electrical connections. They are used for connection in the homes, outdoors and even telecommunication industries. They help in transmitting audio and video signals for major players in the world.

This article will discuss the relevance of coaxial cables and their unique features that set them apart from the rest of the cables. More so, it reveals a lot of these cables uses and its applications in various capacities and industries.

Chapter One:What Is Coaxaial Cable?

What are coaxial cables?

Coaxial cables are electrical cables. These cable types are a combination of the centre conductor and an outer conductor with an insulating spacer that comes in between the two conductors.

Chapter Two:Types Of Coaxial Cables

There are seven types of coaxial cables. They are:

Hardline Coaxial Cables

These are coaxial cable type that uses copper, silver, gold tubing or a combination of both as a shield.

Radiating Coaxial Cables

These cables are quite similar to hardline cables. The major difference is the structure. Radiating coaxial cables makes use of tuned slots that acts as part of its shield.

RG- 6 Coaxial Cable

RG is an acronym for Radio Guide. It is a familiar type of coaxial cable. It comes in different varieties. RG- 6 coaxial cable eliminates the hazard associated with plastic- like insulation.

Semi-rigid Coaxial Cable

These cable types make use of a copper outer sheath and operate even at higher frequencies.

Triaxial Coaxial Cable

Another name for triaxial coaxial cable is Triax. This cable makeup is a combination of an extra layer of insulation and a second conducting sheath.

Twin-axial Coaxial Cable

It is a paired cable type. It is notable for two conductors instead of just one conductor.

Rigid Line

What is a rigid line?

A rigid line is a form of coaxial cable with two copper tubes using PTFE supports.

Chapter Three:Coaxial Cable Connector Types

There are seven types of the coaxial cable connector. These are:

BNC connector:

BNC stands for Bayonet Neill–Concelman. It consists of two bayonet lugs. Its uses include quickly connecting or disconnecting RF equipment, test instruments, radio and television. It aids military operations.

TNC connector:

This is an acronym for Threaded Neill–Concelman. It is a superior version of BNC that performs higher frequencies operation. These connectors are waterproof and resolve issues of stability in cellular phones.

SMB connectors:

SMB means subminiature version B. It is a lesser version of SMA connectors. But, it provides superior electrical performance. Its use is significant for industrial and telecommunications equipment.

7/16 DIN connector:

The name refers to the 7mm inner diameter of the female inner contact. It is the shortened form of 7/16 Deutsches Institute fur Normung. It is suitable for high wattage transmission in cellular network and defence application.

QMA: They are suitable for industrial and telecommunications needs. These connectors also help to enable cable wiring and assembly. These cables are a variation of SMA connectors.

This is an abbreviated form of Micro coaxial connectors. These connectors are ideal for space and size restrictions.

It is another name for cinch connector or A/V jacks. Its origin is suitable for audio signal transmission and videos as well. The colour of the wires is red, yellow and white, usually inserted on the back of the TV.

These connectors are suitable for different equipment. Furthermore, they also work in different capacity and frequencies.
Chapter Four:Coaxial Cable Application Field
There are five different uses of coaxial cables. Coaxial cables perform different functions in the following capacities: Coaxial cable for home, Coaxial cable for GPS, Coaxial cable for the internet, and Coaxial for video.

Chapter Five:Extending Knowledge Of Coaxial Cables
Coaxial cables perform a whole lot of functions. Nonetheless, of the various types of coaxial cables, the best is the RG-6 coaxial cables.

The reason is not far- fetched. RG-6 cables help in transmitting internet signals.

These cables are not easily affected by external interference. Furthermore, they are suitable for homes and commercial institutions too.

Chapter Six:Coaxial Cable Advantages And Disadvantages
Coaxial cables are one of the most common cable types. Additionally, these cables come with a lot of benefits and are possess certain shortcomings as well.

Advantages of coaxial cable

• Coaxial cables are affordable. These cables are not as expensive as others

• Its outer conductor improves shield efficiency

• It permits a high degree of bandwidth signal transmission

• The flexibility of coaxial cables is effective as it makes it easy for wiring

• The transfer of rates with coaxial cables is high as a result of its shielding materials.

• The shield of coaxial cables makes it less vulnerable to noise and external interference.

Disadvantages of coaxial cables

• It is not easily carried about due to its bulky nature

• The cost of installation for longer distances is usually expensive. It is so because of its thickness.

• Coaxial cables make use of cable for signal transmission for the network. If there is an issue of failure in the cable, it affects the entire network

• The security level is discouraging. It is easy to tamper with coaxial cables.

• If the cables are not grounded, there is room for external interference.


Coaxial cables are necessary for day to day activities. They are important in virtually all sectors of activities.

But, to get the best out of these cables, it is essential to understand the various types and their compatible installation patterns. Knowledge of this makes it easier to get the desired audio and video transmission.
