This Vs. That—Allied University

This Vs. That is an excellent way to learn the similarities and differences between comparable products and specifications. In this Allied University category, we go into detail about why a pair of products may seem similar and which applications each would work best in. Many products in the wire and cable industry may seem nearly identical to an untrained eye, so we are here to help. We cover the basics of our products and make sure the differences and similarities are clear. If you’re stuck between a couple of cables, check out our comprehensive list of product comparisons.

Whether you are an industry veteran or are designing an application for the first time, we are here to explain the small differences that can leave a huge impact. If you are unsure of the differences between two Mil-Specs, or need help deciding which coax cable is right for you, these articles can supply you with the information you need to make a decision.
