What are the most common important coaxial cables parameters?
Many different coaxial cables exist, but they all share a numbers of common parameters. Understanding those parameters help us compare and choose our coaxial cables wisely. To distinguish quality from hype, these are the most common parameters to evaluate when looking to buy some coaxial for any type of application being it audio, video, digital, or data transmission cables.
- Electrical Parameters
- Cable Material, Mechanical and Environmental Parameters
A) Electrical Parameters
Three of the most important coaxial cables electrical parameters are bandwidth, impedance and shielding. There are a couple others more but those are the most important since the rest have direct influence on them and in case they go bad, they will affect those 3 parameters.
1) Bandwidth (In GHz)
When you are looking to install and enjoy the finest possible performance for your video installations you should check it’s bandwidth.
A cable bandwidth is one of the most critical parameters if you are using it for antennas transmission, cable television, satellite installation, as well as great performance on you composite video signals and component video and security or surveillance systems, HDTV, cell phone booster, Ham radio…
