What is RG223 Coax Cable?

RG223 Coaxial Cable is a 50-ohm cable ideal for GPS, LAN/WAN, and data signal transmission applications. It features a silver-plated copper conductor, Polyethylene dielectric, and a PVC jacket. It also has two overall silver-coated copper shields that provide lower signal loss than similar RG58 and RG174 cables. The RG223 coax cable is suitable for use in interconnects, phasing harnesses, cable sets, test cables, radio systems, data transmission, broadcast, and computer applications. This double-shielded cable is suitable for use in CATV-community antenna television, CCTV-closed-circuit television, and DBS-direct broadcasting satellite. It also has approval for direct burial applications.

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.
