Airport Cable  
 

 RG59 B/U

RG59 B/U

APPLICATION
Airprot cables are designed for CCTV, security, smoke detection and evacuation monitoring applications, where continued functionality is required during a fire situation. Due to the zero halogen low smoke construction, this cable is ideal for use in public, commercial and industrial environments.
STANDARDS
Basic design to MIL-C-17
