Customer Questions & Answers

Our Client wants "Belldon" CAT6 cable. Is this a manufacture name or a grade that you match?

Asked by: Ray
The company name is Belden and they manufacture Cat 6 cables among a pretty wide range of other cable types

difference between riser and plenum cable

Asked by: opie
Fire rating. Riser is required when not explosed to a Plenum air return. Plenum is required when it is run throught a suspended ceiling which is also used as an air return. Check your return air ducts to see if they have ducted returns, or if they open the ceiling above. Also check with your local inspectors. some just want Plenum regardless.

Can this be direct buried? If not, which CAT6 cable can be buried directly in the ground?

Asked by: captain
no it can not. The CMP should say CMX in order for it to be direct burrial rated. Even then in the CMX there are liquid filled models for fully submersible and "damp locations" models. make sure you get the correct cable for the correct application. THat would be a sure way to pass/Fail an Electircal inspection

How to calculate footage used?

Most cables have a thousand or 0 when pulling the cable to tell how much is used.
Asked by: Hayward
the cable has the footage remaining on the box. just subtract the number on the cable in the box from 1000' or 500' depending on how big your box is.

1000 ft. Gray 24/4 CAT5e CU Wire is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Replaced the good with the bad I do a LOT of network wiring (about 5-10K feet/month) and had been using Home Depot's General Cable brand which was superb! Nice thick jacket that was consistently round and easy to strip. Home Depot replaced General Cable with Southwire a few months ago and I can't stand this cable! The outer jacket is very thin and almost seems like it has been heat shrunk around the UTP wires and thus it is very bumpy. This makes it very hard to strip without nicking the wires even with good UTP strippers! Worst of all is that each and every box will get tangled somewhere along the line! Never had that problem with General Cable. Wish HD would switch back to General Cable!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Ever! This is the worst wire I've ever TRIED to use. The whites are not marked to their corresponding pair, they are all plain white. The conductors are thin and break easily. So easily that unspooling 70' of cable from the box generated opens in the length. I can't even imagine trying to pull this stuff. The jackets are thin and brittle easy to strip with your finger nails but not real useful. I've been doing this for years and could successfully make a 10' patch cable without opens or shorts in 7 attempts. I'm returning the remainder of the spool and will never buy this brand again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome wires, Awesome Price This wire is awesome. It's core is not the thick plastic X I am used to, it is a single rubbery feeling ribbon with a | shape going down the center of the wire. This made it a little more flexible (made pulling it a breeze) and a lot easier to terminate. Make sure you never kink or force this wire while pulling it, pull gently. 25lbs of pulling force maximum. (Make sure to purchase Caddy J-Hooks to support it. It is so sloppy to just leave it lying on top of a drop ceiling.) After my first 150' run, I put my network certifier on it and it passed with flying colors. It had a skew of just 7ns at that distance! This wire is made in the USA and is the most affordable USA plenum coated CAT6 I could find (beat the supply house pricing). BEWARE OTHER VENDORS SELLING CHEAPER PLENUM CAT6 WIRE. I recently was burned on wire I purchased from another huge online retailer. It stated it was TIA/EIA 568 Spec, and it was, until you passed ~80ft then it went downhill from there. 50+ns skew on a 100' run? HA! (tia spec states a max of 50ns skew on a 300' run with anything over 25ns being marginal) These con artists get away with selling terrible wire because VERY few people actually have the tools to test it. BUY THIS WIRE, You will not find better wire at a better price ANYWHERE! I hope The Home Depot never stops selling it.
