RG58 Coaxial Connectors, Solid Bare Copper Conductor

RG58 Coaxial Cable for Radio Communication

RG58 Coaxial Cable for Radio Communication

While RG59 cable is generally used for CCTV security systems, RG58 is a thinner, lightweight cable with a 50 Ohm impedance specification best suited for two-way radio transmissions, ham transceivers, feed cables for HF and VHF, thin Ethernet networks, and other mobile installations. RG58 cable performs well at baseband frequencies and is ideal for scientific laboratory equipment requiring low frequency transmissions.

Highly efficient at carrying signals, 50 Ohm cable delivers excellent sound quality, making it the perfect choice for speaker installations. The RG58 designation is sought after to support 10Base2 ethernet networks for maximum cost savings.

The inner component of our RG58 cable contains a solid bare copper conductor for extended durability. Solid copper conductors are a popular choice due their high tensile strength. They are heat resistant, creep resistant, and can tolerate a large volume of electricity without sustaining damage. The conductor is insulated with a layer of dielectric polyethylene foam and shielded with 95% tinned braided copper to protect against electrical interference. The exterior jacket is constructed from heat and puncture resistant polyvinyl chloride (PVC) to safeguard the cable.

If you require an outdoor installation, we recommend the RG58 Wireless Transmission Coaxial Cable, CMX Rated. This outdoor rated coaxial cable is perfect for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint wireless antenna communication, wireless microphones, two-way radios, amateur (ham) radio, low power FM, GPS, and RFID (Radio Frequency Identification). It is supplied on wooden spools in lengths of 500 feet.

Our RG58 CM Rated 50 Ohm Coaxial Cable is appropriate for indoor or vehicular installation and provides professional-grade results at an affordable price. It comes packaged on a 1,000 ft reel.

Complete your Installation

The type of connector required for your RG58 coaxial cable depends on the intended usage and equipment. For short runs of RG58 coaxial cable, please consider one of our BNC Connectors. Featuring a patented 360-degree floating pin basket in its design, this BNC connector allows cable insertion with ease and accuracy. The plastic compression sleeve allows for the industry’s lowest handle compression force. Other applications may require one of our universal F-Type Connectors or RCA Connectors.

We have all the right tools to complete the job. The Coaxial Cable Stripper, All-In-One Stripping Tool is lightweight and versatile. It strips a wide range of RG58 coaxial cable, Ethernet, A/V, and telephone cables. It even cuts and strips single and multimode fiber optic cable.
