Product Notes

Notes: RG59 CCTV + 1 STP 22 AWG Control Grade + 2C 18 AWG CMP. Individually jacketed and color coded components, cabled around and each fused to a central binding spline. Cold environment installation: When installing cables that have been stored at ambient temperatures of 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Centigrade) or lower, Belden recommends conditioning of the cable for 12 hours at room temperature prior to individual cable leg separation.
