RG59/U95-BK-500 500' RG59/U COAX CCTV 20 AWG BC, 95% BC BRAID, CM RATING - BLACK
This is 500 Feet of RG59 Coaxial Cable, with a Solid Bare Copper (SBC) Center Conductor, 95% Shield Coverage comprised of Solid Bare Copper Braid as well, encased in a Black CM/X/CL2 Rated PVC Jacket, that passes DC, Video and RF up to 3 GHz. The Solid Bare Copper everything makes this an expensive, yet Ultimate Performance choice. A Solid Copper Center Conductor with a 95% Copper Braided Shield RG59 is an Industry Standard for CCTV Video transmission. In the early days of Community Antenna TV distribution, cable like this was also used as Drop cable in Apartment complexes and Hotel distribution Systems. As this Product is Swept to 3 GHz, it can perform in this manner, though RG6 has a lower loss versus Frequency and is more economical still for this purpose. CM rating is a common Communications Designate, X is exterior capable, CL2 is Class 2 signal rated. This cable is not Riser or Plenum rated....

It provides ample conductance for most CCTV BaseBand Video applications up to 100 feet in length without Amplification.
RG-59 is Flexible Coaxial Drop Cable used Primarily Today for CCTV (Closed Circuit TV) Applications. In the Early Days of Cable TV, 300 Ohm twin lead was used. When the transmission lines used changed to 75 Ohm Coaxial Cable, RG59 was introduced as the premise distribution cable of choice, installed in many Homes and Apartments that is still in use today. For the Higher Frequencies and Bandwidthes of Modern Cable TV design, RG59 is very lossy and should be replaced with a lower loss cable (like RG6) at any opportunity. We Sell RG59 Connectors for CCTV and Cable TV Antenna applications as there is still plenty of it still left in service. Modern Manufacture of RG59 sees almost every variety that you would find in RG6, though there is much, much less of it available. Quad Shield versions with Silver Clad center conductor are used in Head End wiring. 95% braid coverage suitable for use in CCTV willl have Solid Copper center conductor and Copper or Copper Clad Aluminum Braided Shield. Cable of this manufacture can be rated up to 3 GHz in bandwidth, but its loss usually precludes its use in anything other than CCTV Applications. Solid Copper center conductor is not needed for the carriage of Higher Frequencies, but rather for the lower loop resistance characteristics preferable for DC Voltage power into the Camera, and the Lower RF Frequencies found in Baseband Video out of the Camera. Lower frequency use such as this sees loss comparable to RG6 as the two are indistiguishable in this range. RG59 is smaller, more flexible, and easier to post-wire install. Solid Copper or Copper Clad Aluminum Shield maximizes Shield Integrity, maximizing rejection of unwanted interfering Signals.
