CPD plastic mesh surrounds cabling in a 4×13/4-inch profile of protective flexible netting. For indoor installations, the mesh is designed to eliminate clutter and permit easy accessibility. For underground ..installation, the mesh provides a safeguard against excavating machinery and animals. The waterproof, corrosion-proof polypropylene material is non-conductive and crack-resistant.

Simplify test results

LinkWare Stats cable test analysis software works with LinkWare Cable Test Management Software to transform test data in graphical indicators of overall cable performance. The software provides statistical analysis and reporting beyond page-per-link reports, summarizing the entire cabling infrastructure so that a complete view of the performance can be determined. Daily results can be reviewed to make sure the installation is on track and that test margins are being met.

In-line splicing kit

Click here to enlarge image

The Hyreducer and Hysplice in-line reducing splice and butt splice kits are designed to provide better cable management solutions when splicing or reducing ..conductors with irreversible compression connectors. The kits provide an in-line reduction or splice of two conductors while keeping space requirements to a minimum. Both kits are packaged with a connector, length of heavy-duty heat-shrink tubing, and installation instructions. Heat-shrink tubing (in black or clear) meets Telcordia GR-347-CORE abrasion and cut test requirements. Inspection holes in the connectors let you know that the conductor has been fully inserted. All connectors are UL-listed.

DVI cable solution

Click here to enlarge image

For interconnecting devices with Digital Visual Interface (DVI) connectors, DVI-D cables are UL-listed and internally ..wired for dual-link, designed to enable higher picture resolution requirements of HDTV and QXGA. Its maximum bandwidth capability of 2×165 MHz is designed to transport uncompressed video signals from a DVI-equipped source to a DVI-equipped display. The cable supports a 24-bit data rate, which the manufacturer says guarantees razor-sharp images. Two layers of 125% aluminum/Mylar protect against higher frequency RFI, while a copper-braided shield fights lower frequency EMI. The PVC jacket has a UL CL2 certification.

Residential cabling connector

For residential installation, a new conduit connector attaches WireTracks wiring channels directly to standard 1-inch conduit. The connectors are designed to enable builders, professional cabling installers and do-it-yourselfers to run cabling from a central location directly into the WireTracks wiring channel while maintaining proper bend radius. Once inside the wiring channel, cabling can be routed anywhere within the building.
