Fiber optic cable continue to integrate and revolutionize the spectrum of the cable capabilities in varying industries and will continue to trend forward. Although most understand standard copper cable more, fiber is the cleanest and faster for of transmitting communication and data signals. It also can offer the highest capacity of connection for any network.
Fiber Optic cables offer a business many benefits for safe, fast installations with higher bandwidth frequencies. Fiber optic cables provide extreme pull tensions up to 600 lbs and a bend radius equal to coax cables.
If loss of fiber does occur it can result in disrupted communications and negative effects to local businesses. Review the steps below in order to repair any tainted connections quickly and effectively.
When installing new home entertainment centers, sound bar or audio equipment it comes down to two main choices: HDMI or optical audio cables. These cables will both pass digital audio signals and multi-channel audio between devices.
So how do you know which to choose for proper installation and signal transmission?
When it comes to audio cables recording the right types of sound depends on what cables are chosen during the installation process. In order to recognize the right cables to use, it's important to understand the makeup and design of audio cables. Let's begin...
If you are familiar with low voltage cables in anyway, you have heard of coaxial cable before and the cable's impedance. Two of the most commonly used that we will discuss more in this article are 50 ohm and 75 ohm and the shielding that is most commonly seen within them.
Increasing demands for updating data centers are emerging and it's likely it will continue to change rapidly as technology grows leaps and bounds each year.
As technology advances each year, shielded category cables are becoming more commonly used for a variety of small to large scale projects. Although these are not always required, they are highly spec'd and suggested.
Every day new products are being introduced into the world of cabling. With newer infrastructures, better technology and business expansions happening on a larger scale, cable products are needed more than ever. One constant that seems to be always taken into consideration when purchasing cable for any major product is if a cable needs to be plenum or non-plenum. In this article, we will be viewing the difference between a plenum and non-plenum rated cable and how to determine which one you will need for an upcoming project.
This month we focus on an important part of any business, Fire Alarm Cables and their systems. These were initially created to not only protect homes, but any business in the event that a fire does occur or hazard occurs that could be harmful.
This article will break down how a fire detection system works and components that West Penn Wire can help provide for your business or building.
Fire Alarm systems can generally be put into two main system designs: Conventional (Analog) and Addressable (Digital). In order to understand what system may be right for your company's building or office, it is important to understand the differences between each system. So let's begin...
