Coaxial Cable Production Quality Tests

Every batch of Aerial Industries coaxial cable is properly tested to verify its quality - we insist on it!  These tests consistently show excellent cable performance.  We are pleased to be able to share this information without editing, as it comes off the Network Analyzer - with date and time in the bottom right corner.  This can be important to customers who need such detail for their job manuals, or just their own peace of mind.

Three traces are presented for each cable type - Insertion Loss, Return Loss and Smith Impedance Chart, for lengths of 100 metres.

Even our RG59 coax has respectable performance, which might help to explain increased sales volume for Terrestrial antenna work and CCTV in recent years.

The Cliff Effect

Judging Digital TV Signal quality by viewing pictures can deceive. With perfect pictures, total loss of service can be closer than it seems!

Because of the nature of digital transmission pictures will degrade very quickly. Because this space between degradation is so small, it is sometimes referred to as the "cliff effect".
