Where is this cable made?

Asked by Jon May 16, 2021

Answer

This is made in the US!

Can this product be buried?

Asked by Regi April 30, 2021
1
Answer

Hi Regi, If it is totally enclosed in conduit, then yes - it will be fine. If you are asking about just burying it as it is, then no - it is not designed for that. Direct burial cable is often jacketed in a black insulating layer, is pretty thick, and expensive. With that said, if you bury this cable - it will work for you but for an undeterminable period of time. I have run regular Cat 5e cabling outside between buildings with it exposed to UV light and it has worked for more than 10 years. I've also buried it and never had it fail after 5 years. At some point though, it will fail when the elements get to it.

By the way, if the wire is run on top of the ground, it’s ok to use. If underground, you should use direct burial RG6

I like the soft (annealed) pure copper that is not brittle. I have purchased more than 10 (1000ft) boxes from Home Depot and have not had a problem with this cable on any of my installations. It may cost more than other cabling available online but I prefer to spend extra for the peace of knowing that I am using an excellent product.

I used this to run data cable to each room in our new construction home. The box makes it easy to run the cable without worrying about it getting all tangled up. 1000ft will go a very long ways when cabling an entire house. I know that CAT6 cable is available now, but the speeds at which Cat5e can run, this is more than enough for the next good while. I used this to also run cables for our home security cameras that have the option of being wired or wireless. The great thing about running wire is we do not need to worry about getting good wifi signal to those cameras. This is a great product at a fantastic price.

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.

Met all my expectations for quality professional grade cable. The braid and inner conductor are proper size/amount for RG-6, unlike what you'd likely see in cheap no-name budget focused offerings. The inner foil shield doesn't peel off or come apart when folding back the braid during termination, a mark of quality cable. PPC EX6 compression connectors slide on with perfect fit - not too loose or too tight. The cable footage is marked on the cable every 2 feet so you know how much cable you've run or have left. All qualities of a pro grade cable that professionals use.
