(Coaxial): It's the thick round cabling commonly used for cable television. Depending on how it's used, it can have 100 to 500 times the data-carrying capacity of regular phone lines. Cable TV is already in more than 60 percent of American homes, and nearby to most others. But cable systems must be updated to handle digital data in addition to broadcast signals, and PCS would require new "cable modems" to use them.
Coaxial cable, a centre conducting wire separated from an outer braid conductor by a dielectric (insulator). The braid surrounds the dielectric and when connected to ground, prevents (shields) the centre conductor from radiating energy. The spacing between conductors, composition of the dielectric and sizes of the conductors determine the impedance of the cable. Coax is used to transfer radio frequency energy from the transmitter to the antenna.
Coaxial cable. The thick, round wire that carries most cable TV signals. Even when optical fiber is used by a broadband provider to bring services to a neighborhood, the actual connection to businesses and households may remain coaxial.
Coaxial cable; RF transmission line; used to connect an antenna to a radio; "coaxial" indicates that the conductors are about the same axis, with a center conductor being on that axis, and the "shield" wrapped around the axis (dielectric separates the center conductor and the shield wires).
A cable made up of two concentric conductors separated by a tube of dielectric substance (the outer conductor is used as a shield/ground). Frequently used for cable TV, broadcast antennas, satellite receivers, cable modems and certain computer networking applications.
A transmission medium consisting of one (sometimes more) central wire conductor, surrounded by a dielectric insulator, and encased in either a wire mesh or extruded metal sheathing. There are many varieties, depending on the degree of EMI shielding afforded, voltages, and frequencies accommodated.
( coaxial cable) - A type of wire that consists of a center wire surrounded by insulation and then a grounded shield of braided wire. The shield minimizes electrical and radio frequency interference. 50-ohm and 72 ohm characteristic impedances are typical.
COAX stands for co-axial mounted machine gun. A 7.62 mm machine-gun is located next to the barrel of the tank's main gun and will shoot parallel to the main weapon. This weapon is used by the tank gunner to clear out infantry and other soft targets while in combat.
