RG59 UHD 6GHz Coax Snake Cables

 

59X Series

Low-Loss RG59 Coaxes - low loss 20AWG conductors increase maximum cable distances

6 GHz Bandwidth - meets or exceeds SMPTE ST2081-1 & ST2082 standards for UHD Digital Video

100% Sweep Tested- network analyzer quality control for consistitent performance

Gas-Injected Dielectric - achieves precision electrical performance and mechanical strength

100% Foil + Braid Shield - dual layer shieldng for exceptional broadband RF/EMI rejection

Flexible TPE Jacket - ideal for portable cables and staging applications

The 59x series coax snake cables feature precision 6GHz RG59 coaxes for digital video formats up to 4K or Dual-Link 8K UHD digital video applications. Each coax element meets or exceeds SMPTE ST2081-1 and ST2082 standards for ultra high-definition digital video formats. Also built for easy termination, the 59x series coaxes have easy-to-strip outer jackets and dielectrics that streamline connector termination. The outer jacket is extruded from a flexible, rugged and abrasion resistant TPE compound that is ideal for portable and staging applications.
