Description of Terminology
This is a coaxial cable made of pipe with an external conductor made of material such as copper.
The characteristic impedance is determined by the ratio of the internal and external conductor diameters and the cutoff frequency by the coaxial thickness.
Semi-rigid cable is used in a wide range of environments including base stations, communication devices, measuring devices and medical equipment.
