Only Connect: Common Coax Cable Types
Although Coax has been around for a while it is still used in cutting edge technology. From it’s early uses in telegraph communications it is used today in mobile phones and high-end communication devices.
There are a lot of different types of coax and the following guide is aimed at giving you an idea of the choice of most common coax cables and their uses.
Cable Type Ohm Application
RG6 75Ohm Used for Cable & Satellite TV.
RG58 50Ohm Ethernet (10Base2) & Radio Communications
RG59 75Ohm CCTV & HD Signal Cable (pictured)
RG174 50Ohm GPS & Wireless Network Cables
RG178 50Ohm Hi-Frequency Signal Transition
RG179 75Ohm VGA & RGB Video Applications
RG213 50Ohm Radio Communication similar to RG58 but lower loss
CT100 75Ohm Satellite TV Cable
There are plenty more types of Coax, however the above covers the most common widely used cables, still very much in use today.
