What's special about this coax cable?

  • Composed of two (instead of the standard one) insulated center conductors on a common axis, a dieletric shield, and a drain wire to handle a wide range of application and throughput on the same cable
  • 20 gauge coax cable has a FlexFoil shield for excellent insulating properties and EMI/RFI protection
  • Insulation and core are constructed of solid and foamed polyethylene compounds, which protect the interior aspects of the cable
