  Broadband Coax  
         
   
  Gepco Broadband coaxial cables feature exceptional performance in multiple RG and UL types for Broadband cable and MATV applications. The Broadband series has a gas-injected foam polyethylene dielectric that significantly lowers attenuation and return loss, yet is crush resistant and durable. For the center conductor element, a copper-clad steel conductor is used. This conductor type has excellent strength and is ideal for terminating with standard F-type connectors that utilize the center conductor as the connector pin. To provide comprehensive EMI and RF shielding, Broadband coax features either dual (foil & braid) or quad shielding in a variety of coverage amounts.
