Five Steps to Help Mitigate Excessive Heat Caused by PoE (Power over Ethernet)
What is Power over Ethernet (PoE)?
Power over Ethernet is a technology designed to safely deliver both electrical power and data to remote devices. It uses standard Ceategory 5/6/6A UTP cable in an Eethernet network. Power and data co-exist on copper conductors and do not affect each other* (BICSI, Ty Estes, 2015).
Non-Continuous Supports vs. Traditional Wire Basket Tray
When it comes to supporting data cable pathways, contractors must consider whether using a non-continuous support system is better than traditional wire basket trays. Although wire basket trays have been a more common means to support cables, another solution should be considered. An economical alternative to trays, non-continuous supports help maintain performance while providing built-in capacity limits and separation between bundles.
What is the ANSI/TIA-568 Standard Series?
ANSI/TIA 568.0-D for Generic Telecommunications Cabling requires a minimum bend radius of four times the cable diameter for four-pair balanced twisted-pair cable during and after installation. For a typical CAT 6A cable (about ¼” diameter), the bend radius for cable supports such as a J-Hook needs to be at least 1 inch. This standard is meant to ensure quality performance and connectivity, support technological innovation, and provide superior, globally accepted products.
CHOOSING A SUPPORT SYSTEM:
Wire rope support systems provide many benefits that make them superior to threaded rod, jack chain, and metal strap. Learn more about how wire rope performs better than metal strap.
As the construction market remains tremendously competitive, contractors must stay ahead of market trends, embrace new and innovative products, and continuously improve efficiency without compromising quality. As a result, manufacturers like CADDY are preparing for another strong year for wire rope support systems.
SELECTING A WIRE ROPE SUPPORT SYSTEM:
Contractors use wire support systems because they are effective and easy to install. Although many different factors and features make some systems better for different applications, all wire rope support systems are comprised of the same basic components.
