Coaxial Cable
Coaxial cable (or 'coax') is a type of wiring that utilizes a metal core of one or more strands, surrounded by a plastic insulator which in turn is sheathed in a metal mesh and the entire cable is wrapped in a plastic jacket. Because the inner metal strand and the metal mesh are arranged along the same axis, the cable is called ‘coaxial’.

Coaxial Cable CutawayCoaxial cabling is used in environments where lower signal loss and transmission over long distances is required. Coaxial cable has been used for Token Bus and Ethernet networks, but is most commonly used for television, satellite, cable and radio transmission systems. Because of the metal jacket and plastic coatings, it is an ideal choice for outdoor use and use in places where the cable must be pulled through long reaches of conduit.
