Essential Info

If you've ever had 20+ video cables come together at one point, you know it can be like wrestling an alligator to get everything to fit. While that may not sound like a lot of cables, remember Smarthome recommends that two coax cables be run to each room. Plus, there will be coax runs for cable modems, satellite TV (from multiple satellites no less), and modulators. Before too long, your pride and joy wiring center looks like a mish-mash of cables going everywhere and even you can't figure it out.

What's Included

  • 3GHz-Rated Mini Coax Patch Cable 12"
  • More Info

    Avoid this mess with these 12" Mini Coax Patch Cables. They make connecting components easy while maintaining minimal signal losses. Each cable is rated for RF frequencies up to 3 GHz, which is well above the range of digital satellite systems. Special small-diameter coax cable is flexible and easy to work with.

    The 3GHz-Rated Mini Coax Patch Cable 8" is ideal for these applications:
    • Patching between amplifiers and output modules like those used on some of the FutureSmart panels
    • Connecting between multi-switches and receivers
    • Modulators and video cameras
    • Between video components like VCRs, satellite receivers, and TVs

    These cables can also be used to transition from regular RG/6 before entering the panel. Just use a splice or barrel connector to go from RG/6 to the Mini Coax. Each cable is UL Class 2 rated for in-wall use so any building inspector (or home appraisal inspector) won't "red tag" your home or improvement project. The 3GHz-Rated Mini Coax Patch Cable is also available in 8", 24" and 36".
