Word forms: (regular plural) coaxial cables
( Electrical engineering : Circuits , Communication )
Each element that makes up the coaxial cable (conductor, dielectric, shield, and jacket) plays an important part in the performance,
and needs to be carefully controlled in the manufacturing process.
Coaxial cable carries high-frequency or radio signals on a single conductor surrounded by an insulating
material and contained within an outer conductor.
A coaxial cable is a way of transmitting electricity that usually consists of one central wire surrounded
by an insulator and encased in either a wire mesh or a metal cover.
