Sound & Security Wire

This article talks about the various types of sound and security wire available today. Sound and security wire is most commonly purchased as a stranded copper product. These types of wires are manufactured with a riser or plenum rating. Riser, which is commonly referred to as CMR, uses a PVC construction. Plenum, called CMP, can be used in plenum applications. PVC is more cost effective than plenum rated sound and security cables but can’t always be used in the same areas of commerical and residential structures. For example, a plenum rated product is required in a drop ceiling because the…

Shielded Cable: Types of Shielded Cables

Shielded cable is offered in a variety of wire and cable products such as shielded tray cable, shielded cat 5 cable and VFD cable. The most common reason for a shielded cable is to cut down on cross talk between conductors, neighboring cables and any other electromagnetic energy that the cable encounters. A shielded cable allows a signal that is being carried to transfer cleanly and without loss of transmission. It should be noted that some shielded cables actually have an exposed shield. This type of shielding is for mechanical protection rather than transmission purposes. The construction of shielded cables…
