Tappan Wire & Cable expands combination cable production

Tappan Wire & Cable is expanding its production of combination cables for connecting multimedia hardware.

Cables can consist of the following combinations:

* One RG-6 quad shielded coaxial cable and one Category 5 (CAT 5e),
* One RG-6 cable and two Category 5e cables,
* One Category 5e cable with a 14awg/ 4 conductors in a jacket,
* Two Category 5e cables with a 22awg/2 conductors shielded jacket pair and one 18awg/2
conductors in a jacket; and,
* Two RG-6 cables and two Category 5e cables.

Combo cables are best suited for installation of true multimedia within the modern home. Specific purposes for the cables include connecting audio, video, voice and high-speed data lines. Combo cables allow for one cable to be installed instead of the traditional multiple cables to satisfy this requirement. The outer jacket is designed to provide extra protection from abrasion and puncture damage.

Combination cables allow a single installation for multiple uses, thereby lowering the installation cost. Since all of the components are under one jacket, there are no additional wires left exposed on the outer walls. The need for future retrofit is eliminated because of the enhanced electrical properties of each component. Furthermore, the set-up time is greatly reduced since all of the multimedia wiring and jacks can be installed in one location for each room.

Tappan Wire & Cable's products are UL approved and verified for Category 5e data performance. The company can also custom build other variations of combo cables to suit different system designs. Some of these variations include multi-paired cables, shielded cables, different individual and overall jacket colors, non-plenum configurations and custom jacket printing. Minimum run quantities start at 10,000 feet per design.

Tappan Wire & Cable, Inc. is based in Blauvelt, NY. For more information visit www.tappanwire.com.
