What is the RG 223?

RG 223 Coaxial Cable is a 50 Ohm cable used in applications for GPS, LAN/WAN or anywhere transmission of data signals is needed. With a temperature rating of 75C, this RG-223 cable offers better shielding and lower signal loss than RG58 and RG174. See below links to learn more about RG-223 Coax Cable:

M17/84-RG223 vs. Commercial RG223:

The United States Military uses M17/84-RG223 as an alternative to the commercial grade rg223 for applications such as Tactical Field Antenna Feeders and Wireless Base Station Interconnections. The military benefits by using this part number because all mechanical and electrical requirements are clearly defined, adhesion requirements are strict and this cable is listed as QPL, so only qualified manufacturers can produce coax cables standard for the military. M17/84-RG223 features a M17/194-0001 LS/LT jacket, as opposed to the regular PVC jacket used for its commercial counterpart, and the military version is also used for high signal transmission.

RG223 Cable Applications:

RG223 coaxial cable is commonly found in interconnects, phasing harnesses, cable sets, test cables, radio systems, data transmission, broadcast, and computer applications. RG223 cable can be used in CATV-community antenna television, CCTV-closed-circuit television and DBS-direct broadcasting satellite. It is also appropriate for LAN/WAN or GPS applications which require low signal loss and high shielding performance. RG 223 cable is rated for direct burial applications.
