Cable Construction

  1. ETFE Jacket (White) Laser Markable
  2. Tin-Plated Copper
  3. Aluminized Wrapper
  4. Foamed Fluoropolymer Dielectric
  5. Stranded Silver-Plated Copper

This coaxial cable has been designed for 75 ohm applications such as high-definition digital or baseband analog video. This cable is ideally suited for both SMPTE 292M (HD-SDI) and SMTPE 424M (3G-SDI) applications because of its low VSWR & attenuation characteristics. Refer to the statement below for the maximum recommended transmission lengths for this cable.

The construction of V78209 includes a silver-plated copper center conductor, a foamed fluoropolymer dielectric and it is double-shielded with a braid of tin-plated copper and an aluminized 100%-coverage wrapper. Tefzel jacketing protects the cable against abrasion and environmental effects while maintaining flexibility for ease of installation. It is laser-markable.

V78209 is Skydrol resistant, RoHS compliant and meets the FAA flammability requirements of FAR Part 23 and 25, Appendix F. V78209 complies with MIL-DTL-17 as applicable.
Because of the critical effect of impedance-matched terminations, a comprehensive family of 75 ohm connectors is available. Please contact PIC Wire & Cable for more details.

Recommended Max Transmission Lengths:

  • SMPTE 292M (HD-SDI): 210’
  • SMPTE 424M (3G-SDI): 140’

(Max length based on 20 dB max. Contact system OEM to verify max loss allowed)
