RG-58 [2010-06-12]

RG-58 is a type of coaxial cable often used for low-power signal and RF connections. RG-58 cable is often used as a generic carrier of signals in laboratories, combined with BNC connectors that are common on test and measurement equipment such as oscilloscopes. However, interconnecting equipment with multiple coax cables can lead to ground loops, which may pick-up 50-60 Hz fields from the AC mains.It can be used for moderately high frequencies. Its signal attenuation depends on the frequency, e.g. from 0.11 dB/m at 50 MHz to 1.4 dB/m at 2 GHz.
