Cable Types

This document has been composed to provide a industry reference for common coaxial cable types and their nominal specifications. The table below has been compiled with the generous assistance from industry leading manufacturers. This list is not to be considered exhaustive and does not include manufacturer-specific designs.

Data are shown nominally to convey typical performance of the most common types of radio frequency cables - for manufacturer-specific data, information on reels and assemblies, please visit the cable catalogue section.

43 coaxial cables series are shown below.
