Cable & Wire

Channel Master provides both rotator wire for antenna rotators and coaxial cables for use in TV signal distribution systems. Rotator wire is available in 75’ and 1000’ lengths, and contains 3 conductor 22 gauge wires used to provide voltage and control signals to the antenna rotator from the control unit/power supply located in the house.

Channel Master provides a number of different size and construction coaxial cables for different applications. All coaxial cables are manufactured to very strict tolerances by Channel Master’s parent company, PCT International, one of the leading manufacturers in the cable telecommunications industry. The coaxial cables are of the highest quality and meet all industry standards and specifications including those developed by the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE), who creates international standards for many TV signal distribution products.

Cable Construction
A) Center Conductor - The center conductor is solid copper-clad steel wire for maximum signal transfer at RF frequencies and excellent strength during installation. The copper is metallurgically bonded to the steel per the requirements of ASTM B 566, Class 10 A.

Center Conductor Adhesive - A proprietary, specially designed adhesive is applied as a coating to the outer surface of the center conductor to keep moisture from the interior of the cable and to sustain overall cable mechanical integrity.

B) Foam Dielectric - Polyethylene (PE) is foamed to micro-cell structures to achieve the highest level of signal transfer through the cable, while maintaining structural and environmental integrity in the cable.

C) First Shield - The first shield is a laminated aluminum-poly-aluminum tape that is longitudinally applied and fully bonded to the foam dielectric core to provide 100% coverage. This minimizes signal leakage and provides superior shielding performance both before and after flexing.

D) Second Shield - The second layer of shielding is braided 34 AWG aluminum wire. This important second layer improves shielding, provides strength to the cable, and is available in a variety of coverage options.

E) Third Shield (when specified) - The third layer is similar to the first tape layer, and is also longitudinally applied; however, it is not bonded. This construction provides enhanced shielding required in harsh environments. When the third shield is used, the cable is commonly called “tri shield” since it has three layers of shielding (first tape, braid, and second tape).

F) Fourth Shield (when specified) - The fourth layer of shielding is braided 34 AWG aluminum wire. With it, the highest level of protection from signal ingress and egress is achieved. When the fourth layer of shielding is used, the cable is commonly called “quad shield” since it has four layers of shielding (first tape, first braid, second tape, and second braid).

G) Jacket - High quality jacketing is used to protect the cable both from the rigors of installation and the environment. A variety of jacketing materials are available, depending upon the application. For common indoor/outdoor installations, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) jacketing is used and is available in black, white, and neutral colors. For underground construction applications, a black or orange polyethylene jacket is used.

Flooding Compounds - Flooding compounds are used between the outer shield and jacket for direct burial or conduit applications. Corrosion Guard™ is used for flooded Series 6 and 11 standard, tri shield, and quad shield constructions. Corrosion Guard non-flowing amorphous polypropylene flooding gel protects shield components from corrosion. Corrosion Guard can also be used for aerial installations.

There are three standard sizes of coaxial cables available. These are Series 59, Series 6, and Series 11 (commonly called RG59, RG6, and RG11). Series 59 is the smallest, and Series 11 is the largest. Series 59 is not used very often any more due to its high signal loss over length. Series 6 is the most commonly used size due to the excellent trade off in price, size, handling and signal loss when compared to Series 11. Series 11 is the largest, has the least amount of signal loss over length, but is bulky, hard to install, and relatively expensive when compared to Series 6 coaxial cables.

Channel Master provides coaxial cables in various pre-connectorized lengths from 6’ to100’, and also provides full reels of 500’ without connectors for large installations.
