Windy City Wire unveils sound intercom cables
August 16, 2006 -- The cables feature an easily customizable visual identification scheme, aimed at integrators.
Windy City Wire has introduced its sound intercom cables, which the company says feature a customizable visual identification scheme aimed at integrators, allowing for easy identification of rooms, floors, devices, and applications.
Like all of its SmartWire products, the company says that its sound intercom cables' standard features include an alpha-numeric coding system, a system-specific print legend, and multiple stripe colors for easy identification of rooms, devices, and applications. Other standard features include a ripcord, which helps to strip the jacket, and ascending/descending sequential foot markers, which enable integrators to always know exactly how much wire has been used and what is left, according to the company.
The company says the sound intercom cables are suitable for use in schools and other multi-room facilities, and are commonly used with Dukane, Rauland and other intercom systems. Since many other low voltage systems (i.e. fire alarm, temperature control, security) are installed in such large facilities, it's important for systems to be easily identified, allowing for shorter service calls, contends the company.
The cables are available in multiple constructions ranging from 20 - 22 AWG.
