April 10, 2007 -- Coleman Cable Inc. (CCI) has introduced a series of media control cables for the structured wiring industry. The products are engineered to meet or exceed the protocols for the AMX, AMX AXLink, CRESTRON, CRESNET, ELAN systems and VIA! touch screens.
A variety of constructions are offered, including low capacitance shielded twisted pairs or Cat 5e for control, two conductors for power, and an optional RG59 for video. Color coded riser rated jackets (teal with a yellow stripe, teal with a red stripe, and solid purple) enable easy cable identification.
Designed for the professional contractor, the combination cables will streamline installations on all commercial and residential job sites, says Coleman. Applications may include home or commercial offices, hospitals, educational institutions, or any location where multimedia and automation controls are installed.
"Sophisticated control systems require multiple runs of multi-purpose cable to each location," remarks Deane Myers, product/market manager at Coleman Cable. "With our new media control cables, installers can save time and money on the job."
