Introduction to the Article

We are generally using these coaxial cables in our offices, workplaces, and homes for several audio and video components. The use of coaxial cables is not only limited to individual use, but commercial sectors like telecommunication and internet industry are also using these cables for different purposes. 

Before making the final purchase of any coaxial cables, you must know how to choose the right coaxial cable for your office or home. Stay with us and let’s get started with the fantastic stuff about coaxial cables. 

Chapter 1: What Is A Coaxial Cable?

This chapter briefly discusses the coaxial cables and all the basic concepts that you must know about the use of these cables. We use coaxial cables for the transfer of video, voice signals and audio data in the internet sector and telecommunication field. TV and cable services providers also use these cables for the same purposes. We generally use these cables at homes to connect the DVD players and other types of media devices to our televisions and display devices. The best thing about this cable is the quality of the data transmission as there is no loss of quality while transmitting data from one source to another. This wire has two main components, and the central core is made of metal, and the external layer is made of any suitable material for better protection and insulations.

There is a male connector at the one end of the coaxial cables and another female connector at the other end. 

Chapter 2: The Types of Coaxial Cables

This chapter is going to talk about the types of coaxial cables and the difference between these types. Here are some common types of coaxial cables. 

2.1 Digital Coaxial Cable

This type of coaxial cable is similar to RCA in shape, but it transmits the digital signals instead of analog signals. The bandwidth of the digital coaxial cable is usually higher, and these cables are thicker too in size. The shape of standard coaxial cable and the digital one is almost the same, so you can ask for the digital coaxial cables before buying. 

2.2 Coaxial Digital Audio Cable

This type of cable connects two audio devices. You can use these cables to connect your computer or laptop to external speakers or amplifier. These come with RC jack at both ends. Some manufacturer color code ends for the ease of the user.

2.3 75 Ohm Coaxial Cable

As the name suggests, this type of cable comes with an impedance of 75 ohms. These cables are part of heavy industries and commercial applications. You can efficiently send data through these cables without losing quality and strength. That is a multipurpose cable that works fine for video, audio and voice signals. 

2.4 White Coaxial Cable

These cables are the industry standard for the internet sector, satellite and cable TV services. When you want to keep the overall decoration of your room or office, you can use these cables as the white color easily blends with the interior of the room. 

2.5 TV Coaxial Cable

These cables connect the VCRs, TVs and satellite dishes to the devices. There are two versions of these cables, one with male to the male connector and second with male to female connector. The wires come with gold or silver plating to improve the quality of the transmission.

2.6 Coaxial Audio Cable

These cables connect two sources like DVD and CD players, speaker or amplifiers. These cables transmit audio data from one source to another. Most of these high-quality cables use the copper wire that is heavily insulated. There are RCA jacks at both ends of these cables. 

2.7 RG6 Coaxial Cable

RG6 cable mainly used in homes and offices. The basic concept of these cables is similar to military cables, and you can easily find these cables in TV systems. There can be BNC connectors, RCA plugs or F connectors in RG6 coaxial cables.

2.8 100 ft. Coaxial Cable

If you need a longer piece of wire for use at your home or office, this cable can be a better option for your needs. The cables come with durable insulation and protection to fight against rough use. The quality of signals also remains the same while transmitting data from one source to another.

2.9 Flat Coaxial Cables

If you need to use the coaxial cables where standard cables are not useful, you can go for these flat cables. You don’t need to drill any holes in the wall to use these flat cables. You can get these cables with different kinds of connectors on both ends.

Coaxial Cables used for Cable TV

Today the satellite TV industry utilizes two sorts of coaxial wires in most installations. The most well-known decision is the RG6 coaxial links which are utilized ordinarily in homes to interface digital TV beneficiary boxes with TVs and the primary line.

Now, as we have discussed everything related to the types and kinds of coaxial cables, we need to proceed to the next chapter of our article. 

Chapter 3: How to Splice Coaxial Cables?

This chapter endorses the detailed steps to splice the coaxial cables. The process is easy if you have the right tools for the job. You can easily find these tools at your nearest hardware store, and you can splice the cables on your own. 

You must have the given tools to splice the coaxial cables at home:

  • A cable stripper for coaxial cables
  • Compression connector
  • Barrel connector
  • Compression tool
  • Extra coaxial wires

If you have collected all the required tools, the next step is to begin the process of cable splicing. 

1. Strip the coaxial cable with the coaxial cable stripper

You need to insert the ends of the cable into the cable connector. Make sure that the finish of your wire lines up with the guide on the stripper instrument. On the off chance that you don’t adjust it to the guide, at that point the lengths of coaxial links grafted won’t be uniform.

The next step is: rotate the stripper around the cable and repeat the step for a few times until it is done. Now fold the mesh of wire around the edge to keep it safe from interfering with the core. 

2. Insert the compression connectors

The next step is to insert the compression connector to the insulated edge. But you must do it carefully so that the core is not damaged.

3. Use the compression tool to compress the connectors

Correctly place the compression connectors and then use a compression tool to compress the connectors by applying a suitable force. Repeat the same process for the connectors on the other end.

4. Use the splice adapter or barrel connector

Not on the last step, you need to put the end of the cable into the barrel connectors. You need to make sure that the metal core is in the female jack on both ends. To finish the job, apply force on the collars of the cable connectors in the barrel connector. 

Coaxial Cable Signal Booster

These devices can be used to boost the signal power of the cables in TV connections, Dish antennas, and other connections. Signal booster can enhance the distribution quality of the signals in the area. 

There are several kinds of coaxial cable signal booster, so always make sure that you are purchasing the right booster for your setup. 

Coaxial Cable Splitter

If you want to connect many TV connections with the signal input, you can use these coaxial cable splitters for this purpose. There are one input and several outputs in this device. There are two or for way cable splitters generally available in the market.

Coaxial Cable to HDMI

Many latest devices don’t support coaxial cables inputs, so you have to use the coaxial cable to HDMI connectors for the latest devices. You can connect the coaxial cable as an input to this adapter and then connect the adapter to the HDMI port of the device. 

Wireless Coaxial Cable Transmitter

If you want to transmit coax cable signals, you can buy this device that comes with one receiver, transmitter, and the power supply. You need to connect the cable TV into the receiver box to use the transmission wirelessly.

As we have talked enough about splicing the coaxial cables, we should move to the next step here. 

Chapter 4: Extending Knowledge of Coaxial Cable

4.1 Best Coaxial Cable

RG6 is one of the best coaxial cables, and it is the standard cable for commercial and home use. The overall quality and the material are way better than the other wires in the market. If you are looking for even better quality cables, you can also choose quad-shielded RG6, and this cable prevents any signal disturbance. 

These cables are equally suitable for internet connections due to efficient working and protection against signal disturbance. 

4.2 Coaxial Cable Adapter

If you don’t want to damage the coaxial cable, you should not bend it. If you need to bend the wire around sharp corners, you can use coaxial cable adapter in such cases. There are several types of adapter like 90-degree adapter with male jack at one end and female adapter at the other end.

4.3 Target Coaxial Cable

At the target store, there is a wide range of coaxial cables, and you have several options in the store. If you want any coaxial cable for home or commercial use, you can buy at target sore. 

4.4 Outdoor Coaxial Cable

Sometimes you have to use the coaxial cables in a severe weather condition or have to bury the cables underground. Outdoor coax cables are better resistant against these types of conditions and can provide better quality in case of outdoor use. 

4.5 Coaxial Cable Amplifier

If you want to boost the signal quality of the transmission, you can use this device that is readily available at the stores. You have to connect the transmission cable at the one end and the equipment at the other end.

We have gone through each and everything that you need to know about coaxial cable. In the next step, we are going to discuss a few tips that can help you in buying the perfect coaxial cable.
