AC Voltage on Coaxial Cable (Cable TV)

walking on carpet, rubbing on them, fury things will built up static.
it will discharge when ever you touch a grounded object.
If the appliances are grounded then they are safe.
on the other hand the charged human is walking little taser .

If you are walking on carpet and by any chance if you touch a semiconductor thingy, it will damage it..
Always be sure to discharge oneself by touching an earthed metallic object, when you handle remotes or phones or pc, or any thing electronic.

Try this : wear a fury coat and also put on some bugs bunny fury shoes and walk on the carpet dragging you feet very quickly for a few secs.
This will build up static voltage on you.
Next thing to do is go and very quietly touch some ones ear with just one pointed figure, really slowly, as the finger touches the grounded human, the static charge that was build up in you will discharge via the other person causing him or her to jump from a minor shock .

Подробнее TV Cables

As you untangle the wires as you investigate the reason for the annoying television signal dropouts, it becomes clear that the source of the problem is the worn out TV cable that connects your set to the antenna. Inspecting the length of TV coaxial cable, you decide that it has seen better days and it needs to be replaced. TV cable is expensive to buy in the stores and so you look on eBay to find the best deal possible. There is a wide range of lengths of TV antenna cable available from verified sellers on eBay at very economical prices with the added convenience of home delivery that makes replacing the old worn TV cable much less expensive than you thought that it would be. Thinking about it more deeply, you decide to inspect the TV coaxial cable that runs up to the antenna and, after seeing that it is pretty old and worn too, you decide to buy enough cable to replace that at the same time so that you can be sure to get the great TV reception that you...

Hi, I'm a cable co. technician and have a question I can't seem to get a straight answer on, I'll try to describe as best I can.

From time to time I run into customers who have ongoing intermittent issues with their cable service, most of the time their modems. Everything has been checked out with the cable yet problem persists. Then either I feel a little shock outside at the ground block or I will just pull out the multimeter, pull of the coax feeding inside, and I find 50-60v AC on the line, measured with the red lead on the center conductor of the cable, and black lead on the ground wire.

This last time was just the other day, it was 1 cable feeding 2 TV's, on a common circuit. I tried to troubleshoot by unplugging devices and what I came up with was that whenever ANY device is plugged into that circuit and also connected to the coax, the voltage backfed on the cable. I assumed it is something wrong with the electrical wiring.
One of the outlets looked...

This week’s question comes to us from Dan in Oregon:

What is the difference between 50 Ohm and 75 Ohm Coax?

Hi Dan, thank you for this excellent question. This topic comes up quite frequently because a vast majority of electronics manufacturers fail to adequately explain the difference between the two types of coax and precisely why their equipment needs one type over the other. I will try my best to define some of the most critical concepts regarding coaxial cable technology — no engineering background required

First, we need to define what an Ohm is and what exactly it measures. An Ohm is a unit of resistance — that is the resistance to the flow of electrical current through a circuit. In the most basic applications, where we are dealing with DC or Direct Current electricity, such as that from a typical 12-volt car battery, we are measuring the resistance in Ohms. However, the second we try and send AC or Alternating Current through a circuit, we...

The high-voltage wire sold for use in test-leads is usually rated at 2,000V or 5,000V and is fairly inexpensive from the usual electronics suppliers. But most Tesla Coils use Neon Sign Transformers up to 30KV (with 45KV peaks)

For a quick source of short lengths of high-voltage wire, get yourself some coaxial cable, carefully strip off the black jacket, then remove the copper braid and any aluminum foil. If the white plastic inner insulation is the translucent type, and is fairly difficult to cut, then it's "solid polyethelene" and good for many tens of kilovolts. Avoid using the coax with the easily-cut spongy foam insulation, since it has a much lower breakdown voltage. If your voltage is above 20KV, use the much thicker core taken from RG-8 cable (it's nearly 1/2" diameter!)

Also call around to local neon sign shops. They might sell you shorter lengths of wire good for 10KV and above.

Note: the absolute voltage rating of HV cable is...
