What is RG174 Coax Cable?

The RG174 Coax Cable is a 50-ohm coax cable suitable for use in a vast array of commercial applications, such as sending data signals in GPS and WAN/LAN networks. RG 174 also features a small, flexible diameter. It consists of a bare copper-clad steel conductor, solid low-density polyethylene insulation, and a PVC jacket. M17/119-RG174 coaxial cable is the Mil-Spec equivalent to the commercial grade RG 174 cable. M17/119-RG174 is ideal for high-frequency signal transmission and features a jacket with non-contaminating, PVC Type IIA per MIL-C-17 and uses an M17/196-00001 LS/LT jacket. The Mil-Spec equivalent has a temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, whereas the commercial RG174 cable has a maximum temperature of +80°C.

RG174 cable provides high-speed, high-fidelity data transfer. Common applications include security systems, computer networks, access control, card access control, home automation applications, and transmission of data signals in GPS or LAN/WAN. RG-174 is also for connecting wireless devices and antennas within wireless networks. It also has approval for direct burial applications. Allied Wire and Cable offers a full catalog of RG cables, including popular RG59 and RG11 coaxial cables. You can learn more about RG Numbers through Allied University on our website.
