Customer Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: Ray
Not even close. This is likely the worse of the cat cable brands. We have used it in a pinch when something happened and we ran out of cable on the truck, but we can always tell the difference when we terminate the cable, and when we test it. Belden is one of the best brands you can buy hands down. Belden cable (for one thing) has what is called zero SKU cabling. Meaning the cable lengths are exactly equal on each pair of the wire all the way through. I know for a fact this cable is a high sku. That means you can sometimes see a footage difference on a brown pair verse a blue pair. This can be an issue for high end equipment, like HDMI over Cat 5e, or situations where you want to get the best speeds from the cable. I would suggest if they want a brand name cable, you should sell them a brand name cable.

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.

500 ft. Black RG6 18 AWG Coaxial Cable is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 55.
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 3 out of 5 by from Biggest issue I have with this cable is the lack of foot marks. It actually does have marks on it... Biggest issue I have with this cable is the lack of foot marks. It actually does have marks on it, but they are not 0-1000 but manufacture marks that are in the 80000 range. You have to look at the beginning mark and then subtract 1000 from that and write it on the box. Then when you need to know how much cable is in the box you have to do the math. If you forget to write the number on the box, you are screwed. As far as the pulling of the cable, I didn't have any issues there. It seems to come right out with no kinks. After the cable is out of the box, it does tangle easy, but I feel all cable does that once it's out of the box. The jacket is tight on the cable do if you use one of the strippers you could nick the cable, I don't use one so that's not a big deal to me. The conductors are spot on in my book and I've had no issues with the performance of the 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.
