RG59 is a co-ax type cable ideal for bringing video signals back from cameras to other CCTV equipment such as DVRs, quads and monitors.
It is a low loss cable losing only approximately 2.5dB of video signal over a 100 metre run. As a rule of thumb, the maximum loss should be kept under 6dB. This means a massive cable run of 240 metres can be achieved without the use of an amplifier. Using a video amplifier, runs of up to 500 metres can be achieved.
The RG59 co-ax has a 0.7mm copper core to give maximum video quality on longer cable runs and is shielded with a glued foil sheath to protect against interference. This also prevents the problem of loose foil shorting to the centre-pin.
This cable is supplied in 100 or 250m rolls with a black or white sheath.
Antihum is the UK’s leading CCTV cable made popular by the industry thanks to its quality construction, here’s why:
- Solid Copper Centre cores not inferior coated alternatives like CCS or CCA*
- Glued foil sheaths (not loose) to prevent shorting on the centre pin
- Supplied on wooden drums so not soggy card reels
- Quality protective sheath resists cable damage

Copper is a better conductor of electricity than gold so it is the top choice. Aluminium is only 61% as good as copper so can be a real false economy to fit.
