What factors affect the service life of coaxial cables?

Coaxial cable refers to a cable with two concentric conductors, and the conductor and shielding layer share the same axis. With the advancement of technology, more and more coaxial cables are serving our lives. And paying attention to the service life of coaxial cables can often help reduce electrical failures and ensure the safe operation of equipment. TXGA is the industry's leading provider of connector solutions, dedicated to providing connector products with a wide range of applicability and technology-oriented customized services.

The service life of coaxial cable is roughly affected by the following factors:

1. External force damage

At present, a considerable part of cable failures are caused by mechanical damage.

2. The insulation is damp

Generally occurs at the cable joints in direct burial or piping. When the cable connector is unqualified or the protection level does not match, water or water vapor will enter the connector, which will gradually damage the insulation strength of the cable and cause failure.

3. Chemical corrosion

When the load current passes through the cable, it will inevitably cause the conductor to heat up, thereby increasing the temperature of the cable. Too high temperature will accelerate the aging of the insulation, and even breakdown of the insulation. Especially in the hot summer, the temperature rise of the cable often leads to the first breakdown of the weak cable insulation.

4. Cable connector failure

The cable joint is a weak link in the cable line, and the cable joint failure caused by the direct negligence of the personnel often occurs. For example, the joints are not tightly crimped, insufficient heating, etc., will cause the insulation of the cable head to decrease, which will cause an accident.

5. Environment and temperature

The external environment and heat source of the cable can also cause the cable to overheat, insulation breakdown, and even explosion and fire.

6. Other factors

Other reasons such as normal aging of the cable body or natural disasters.
