The term "coaxial" comes from the inner conductor and outer shield of the cable sharing a geometric axis. Coaxial cables differ from other shielded cables in that the dimensions are controlled to give precise, constant conductor spacing, which is imperative to its functionality as a transmission line. The primary advantage is that it allows the coaxial cable to be utilized next to metal objects without incurring a signal loss, while still providing protection to the signal from external electromagnetic interface.
Coaxial cable, more commonly called the "coax cable," is a copper cable consisting of two physical channels (layers). The center channel carries the signal, while the outer one surrounding it serves as a grounding channel. Both signals are run parallel to one another and are able to transfer information over long distances. These layers are surrounded by a layer of braided copper mesh or metal foil that is then wrapped in an insulated jacket. Sycor's coaxial cables are available in countless constructions with varying flexibility, shielding and armours, operating voltages, temperature ratings, weight, and other factors. Sycor is also able to provide Mil-Spec approved coaxial cables.
