LAN cables with a double sheath for underground and outdoor installation
ITALIANA CONDUTTORI Srl is increasing its offer of high quality LAN cables. A new series of cat5e, cat6 and cat 6a cables, both in UTP or FTP versions, has been studied. These cables are intended for underground and outdoor installation and are made by an outer jacket of black Polyethylene extruded over the standard white PVC sheath.
The new products are marked with the suffix 2G (for example: LAN5402G).
Furthermore, ITALIANA CONDUTTORI Srl acquired new production machineries to improve the quality and increase the production capability. Thus, within 2013, we will be able to provide LAN cables of category 7, 7a and up.
CAVEL fake cables - Beware of imitations!
Being the market leader for reputation and quality exposes to the risk of being copied from incorrect manufacturers. That 's what happens to the brand CAVEL cables that are often victims of imitations. In the picture you can see the latest example of cloned cable found in the Russian market. For now, the problem seems confined to a few countries, but we can not exclude the possibility that someone could sell false products in other markets. Obviously these fake cables don't show the same quality as those marked CAVEL and can cause, against our will, serious problems to customers.
Thus, you should pay attention to the print on the cable and on the packaging but especially in the presence of the security hologram, glued (not printed!) on the cardboard, which guarantees the origin of the product.
Thank you for any reports of suspected coaxial cables.
Coexistence of coaxials with power cables
Often the installers ask us if a coaxial cable can be placed in the same conduit with power cables (eg nominal electrical voltage 220 or 380 Vac). It has been recently issued by the CEI (Italian Organization for Standardization) the CEI-UNEL 36762 Standard which clarifies this matter.
This Technical Standard specifies the minimum requirements and the tests to be performed on a signal cable so that it can be placed in the same conduit containing power cables.
CAVEL recently submitted all the cables shown in the catalog to this Standard and can now ensure that all products are electrically safe and suitable for use in the same conduit containing power cables. To ensure this the sheath will be marked with the label "CEI-UNEL 36762 C-4 (U0=400V)".
Anyway the installer should evaluate if electromagnetic intereference between cables is possible.
