RF Cable Assemblies

RF cable assemblies are used as transmission lines for radio frequency (RF) signals that are required to travel from one point in a communication system to another. For example, an RF cable assembly might carry signals between pieces of equipment, or from a piece of equipment to an antenna to generate a message or display. RF cable assemblies typically consist of RF coaxial connectors attached to a coaxial cable.

What are RF cables used for?

RF cables have many uses but are typically used to send video information for display on television sets. RF cables are a type of coaxial cable, specifically used for transmitting radio signals.

Is an RF cable the same as a coaxial cable?

Yes, although it is common to see the terms used interchangeably, they are essentially the same thing. RF, or coaxial, cables are typically used to transmit radio frequencies up to a few gigahertz where wireless transmission is not desirable or possible.

How does RF travel through coax?

Radio frequencies (RF) travel through coax by being translated from RF signals into voltage waves, creating a signal electrical signal which is then translated at the other end to produce sound, display, or both.

How do I join RF cable?

RF cables can be joined together by stripping the ends of the RF cables to be joined, before attaching them into opposite ends of RF/coax cable joiners. You may also use a cable joiner to connect RF cable to a TV receiver box.
