RG6 18AWG HD/SDI Coax Snake

 

RG6HD5

Low-Loss RG6 Coaxes - low loss 18AWG conductors increase maximum cable distances

4.5 GHz Bandwidth - meets or exceeds SMPTE 292M and 424M standards for HD/SDI

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 RG6HD5 coax snake cable features precision 4.5GHz RG6 coaxes for HD/SDI, standard SDI or high resolution video applications. Each coax element meets or exceeds SMPTE 259M, 292M and 424M standards for high-definition digital video formats. Also built for easy termination, the RG6HD5 has easy-to-strip coax 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.
