Custom Coaxial Cables

Custom Coaxial Cable Manufacturing

Custom Wire Industries manufactures a wide spectrum of wire and cable assemblies, each custom designed for each individual client. Coaxial cable, at the industrial level, is used for instrumentation, control, RF, and microwave applications. It is also commonly used to connect home video equipment and cable television. These cable assemblies are available both rigid and flexible options, and consist of four layers: a round conducting wire, insulating spacer, cylindrical conducting sheath and a final insulating layer.

 

Common Types of Coaxial Cables

Industries/Applications

Hard Line Broadcasting and radio communication
Radiating US Navy ships, elevator shafts and underground tunnels
Plain RG-6 External wiring for residential homes like cable and satellite TV
Flooded RG-6 Underground conduits
Messenger RG-6 Cable TV wiring
Plenum RG-6 Ventilation ducts
Triaxial Television industries (commonly connects the camera to the CCU)
Semi-Rigid Radar equipment, amplifiers & microwave products, and telemetry applications
Rigid Line FM and TV broadcasting systems and antenna masts

Coaxial cables are available in a wide range of lengths and styles to suit your desired application. The most common application of coax cables is carrying data and signals from antennas to receivers.

Short coaxial cables are more often used in homes or smaller-scale broadcasting. The most common uses for the shorter cables include:

  • Carrying cable TV signals to the TV receivers
  • Connections in amateur radio setups
  • Connecting home video equipment
  • Connections in measurement electronic

The shorter coaxial cables were used in computer networking, especially for Ethernet networks. This method of connection has lost popularity and is being replaced by UTP cables (unshielded twisted pair cables). The shorter coaxial cables are still being used for broadband Internet connections with cable modems.

Long coaxial cables were often used for long distance communication and broadcasting up until the end of the 20th century. They used to be used for connecting TV networks, long distance phone networks, and radio networks. Coaxial cables were mostly replaced by fiber optic cables and satellite.

Micro coax cables are also available. These cables are used in ultrasound equipment, military equipment and consumer electronics.

Customized Coaxial Cables Built to Perform

We've all seen them before, coaxial cables are the kind of copper cable used by cable TV companies between the community antenna and user homes and businesses. Coaxial cable was invented in 1880 by Oliver Heaviside, an English engineer and mathematical, who patented the invention and design the same year.

Coaxial cable is called such because it only has one physical channel that carries the signal surrounded by another coextensive physical channel, both running along the same axis. The outer channel serves as a ground.

Many of these cables or pairs of coaxial tubes can be placed in a single outer sheathing and with repeaters, can carry information for a great distance.

Coaxial cable is sometimes used by telephone companies from their central office to the telephone poles near users. It is also widely installed for use in business and corporation Ethernet and other types of local and network.

Although coaxial cable is often more expensive than standard telephone wire, it is much less susceptible to interference and can carry much more data.
