Overview Of RG6 Coaxial Cable

RG6 Coaxial Cable

History of RG6 Coaxial Cable

     RG-6 was originally from military specs in which "RG" standards for “Radio Guide” and "6" refers to the sixth page in the Guide. As times goes by, the “RG” terminology is getting obsolete. In today’s practice, "RG-6" is generally used to refer to coaxial cables that has 18 AWG center conductor and 75-ohm characteristic impedance.


What is RG6 Coaxial Cable and What is it used for?   

  RG-6 is the most commonly used type of coaxial cable in a wide variety of residential and commercial applications. The term "RG-6" is generic and refers to a variety of cable designs, which differ from one another in shielding characteristics, conductor composition, and dielectric typeand so on. The most commonly recognized RG-6 cable is cable television (CATV) distribution coaxial, used to route cable television signals to and within buildings, and RG-6 type cables had become the standard for CATV. CATV distribution coaxial typically has a copper-coated-steel (skin effect) center conductor and a combination of aluminum foil/aluminum braid shield. RG-6 type cables are also used in professional video applications, carrying either baseband analog video signals or serial digital interface (SDI) signals; however, in these applications, the center conductor is usually solid oxygen free copper, the shielding is much heavier (typically aluminum foil/95% copper braid), and tolerances are more tightly controlled, to improve impedance stability.

RG-6 cables typically are fitted with various types of connector at each end; in CATV distribution applications, these are typically F Connectors; in professional baseband video, BNC Connectors; and in consumer A/V applications other than RF and CATV, are RCA Plugs.
