What is Coaxial Cable?

Everyone's heard of coaxial cable, right? Or maybe you've heard it by its hip nickname: "coax" (that's two syllables, co + ax…not the word that means “to draw forth”). It's a fairly common type of shielded data transmission cable, which is made up of two conductors that are coaxially oriented (hence the name), but separated by a layer of insulation. The make-up of your typical coax is as follows: the core consists of a metal wire (conductor #1), which is then surrounded by a layer of nonconductive dielectric insulation, which is itself covered in metallic mesh, foil and/or braid (conductor #2), and then whole shebang is wrapped in a protective outer sheathing, or jacket, which holds everything together and locks out moisture and impurities (sorry Phil Collins, a jacket is required…if you don't get that reference, ask an old person about the 80's).

What is Coaxial Cable Used For?

Good question! Coax is designed to carry high-frequency signals, and to protect those signals against electromagnetic interference (EMI) from external sources. Most people probably associate it with their cable television (CATV) service, and probably have not-so-fond memories of squeezing behind the TV to try and thread the end of the cable onto the wall outlet and/or the back of the TV set. But you'll find these cables in lots of other applications, including commercial radio communications, ham radio, undersea cable systems, closed-circuit television (CCTV), home video equipment, and broadband Ethernet application.
