Workshop Title Month 200X Your file Number- 12 Honeywell Confidential Wire Types Shielded vs. Unshielded – There are a variety of overall shielded (OAS) products – Offers increased resistance to EMI & RFI interference and added protection against cross talk Stranded vs. Solid – Though cost is slightly higher, stranded cables afford greater flexibility and ease of installation Multi-Pair Cables – Variety of cables available typically per preference of residential or commercial installer Helpful Hint: Look at similarities in Part #s #1204 = 22/4 STR Non-Plenum OAS #2204 = 22/4 STR Riser OAS #3204 = 22/4 STR Plenum OAS
Workshop Title Month 200X Your file Number- 13 Honeywell Confidential Wire Types Plenum (CMP, FPLP) – Cables used in air space (plenum ducts / ceilings; is the space that can facilitate air circulation for heating and air conditioning systems) must have fire-resistant, low smoke producing characteristics – Plenum constructions are very similar to non-plenum but more expensive – Much of plenum cable products used in commercial applications Riser (CMR, FPLR) – Suitable for use in a vertical run (floor to floor) – Fire resistant characteristics preventing fire from traveling from floor to floor Non-Plenum (CM, FPL) – General Purpose – Listing excludes installation in risers & plenums – Bulk of what we manufacture & sell Helpful Hint: Look at similarities in Part #s #1104 = 22/4 STR Non-Plenum #2104 = 22/4 STR Riser #3104 = 22/4 STR Plenum

Workshop Title Month 200X Your file Number- 15 Honeywell Confidential Plenum Cable More commonly used in commercial installations – Low flame spread – Low smoke producing characteristics.
Workshop Title Month 200X Your file Number- 16 Honeywell Confidential What makes a good speaker wire? Stranded conductors – More strands = more flexible – Promotes Skin Effect The signal travels on the outside of the conductor, like the skin is on the outside of your finger. The more strands, the more outsides or surface area for the signal to travel across…so the better it travels Oxygen Free – Oxygen is a natural impurity in copper – Copper can be annealed to remove that oxygen – Just like these pennies, speaker wire can oxidize – Oxidized strands will impede the signal Oxygen-Free speaker wire will not oxidize over time

Workshop Title Month 200X Your file Number- 18 Honeywell Confidential Speaker Wire…Power Loss Analog Transmission of a signal degrades as the length of the run increases. Your speaker requires a maximum amount of loss. Use this chart to decide what gauge speaker wire you need For 0.5 dB loss (or 11%) 16 AWG 14 AWG Ω 4 Ω 8 Ω 4 Ω 4 Ω = 4 Ω Speaker 8 Ω = 8 Ω Speaker

Workshop Title Month 200X Your file Number- 23 Honeywell Confidential Attenuation Comparison (Signal loss over distance) The lower the dB/100ft at 1000MHz and 3000MHz the better the cable
Workshop Title Month 200X Your file Number- 24 Honeywell Confidential Coax RG6 CATV – Do not pull with more than 35lbs – Max. bend radius is 3 inches RG59 CCTV – Max. pull strength of 25lbs – Max bend radius of approx. 2.5 inches See handout for coax run lengths
Workshop Title Month 200X Your file Number- 25 Honeywell Confidential Applications for Category Cable Cat 3 – Voice only networks – 10/100 Mbs – No future-proofing Cat 5e – Voice and Data networks – Gigabit Ethernet Cat 6 – Data Networks – 10 Gigabit Ethernet – Commonly used in hospitals, schools, large offices, etc.
Workshop Title Month 200X Your file Number- 26 Honeywell Confidential Category Rating System (What you hear about) Cat 3Cat 4Cat 5Cat5eCat5 350 (ENHANCED) Cat 6 Standard Frequency (MHz) *250 Genesis Frequency (MHz) Network Throughput 10 Mbps 100 Mbps 1 Gbps 1 Gbps 10 Gbps *Cat5 350 (aka ENHANCED or Cat5E) is not regulated by the TIA Category Rating system, therefore users should not assume Cat5e compliance on all electrical values. Consult factory for complete test results.
Workshop Title Month 200X Your file Number- 27 Honeywell Confidential Whats really important? Although Frequency is the electrical characteristic most often discussed with category cable it is not the best indicator of network performance. – When a manufacturer says their cable is tested at a certain level, ask for the test results. Most low end manufactures that claim a high frequency rating do not meet the TIA specifications for all electrical values. Better indicators of network performance are: – Near End Cross Talk How much adjacent pairs accidentally share information – Reflection How much interference there is based on signal accidentally reflecting (changing direction) due to cable imperfections – ACR Attenuation to Crosstalk Ratio is the amount of signal relative to the amount of noise. (The higher the better)
Workshop Title Month 200X Your file Number- 28 Honeywell Confidential Whats really important? (cont.) Near End Cross Talk – how does it go bad? – Category cable has four pairs that are each twisted in a slightly different way. Those four pairs are also cabled together in a specific ways too. This twisting scheme is like the lane lines on a highway. – The Category Rating System specifies a certain type of twisting scheme that allows the signals to travel optimally. The signal travels with peaks and valleys that, when on a quality category cable, work well together. – If there are any imperfections in the way that cable is designed or manufactured those twists can fall out of place, and the peaks and valleys begin to interfere with each other. Improper installation is also a major cause of those twists falling out of place. – Imagine a highway where the lane lines were to run together, cars would be cutting each other off, and the traffic would slow down.
Workshop Title Month 200X Your file Number- 29 Honeywell Confidential When am I going to notice a problem? Before Cat 5e the best networks were transmitting 10 or 100 Megabytes per second. – They are often referred to as 10/100 networks and are still the most popular today among small networks. Cat 5e was designed for Gigabit Ethernet (1,000,000 bytes of information per second) – Gigabit Ethernet is available on many computers and network devices purchased in the last few years. Cat 6 was designed for 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10,000,000 bytes of information per second)
Workshop Title Month 200X Your file Number- 30 Honeywell Confidential When am I going to notice a problem? Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernets transmit data in a new way. – Before Cat 5e: 2 pairs were used for sending information & 2 pairs were used for receiving information – With Cat 5e and beyond: All 4 pairs send and receive information Imagine both sides of the highway Since each pair is transmitting and receiving a signal on Cat 5e and Cat 6, interference due to reflection becomes much more disruptive.
Workshop Title Month 200X Your file Number- 31 Honeywell Confidential When am I going to notice a problem? Little problems within a network build up until a point at which the network fails. – Too many users on a network: More bandwidth is used up More errors will occur Network will slow down – Cable runs too long within a network: Cable runs are not to exceed 100 meters (328 feet) –90 meters (295 feet) from distribution device to outlet. –Maximum 10 meters (33 feet) for Equipment Cords and Patch cords Maximum Demarcation to furthest outlet cant exceed 150 meters (492 feet) – Cable improperly installed Cable daisy chained Cable pulled with more than 25 lbs. of pulling tension. Pairs untwisted more than ½ when terminating Cable bent beyond 1 bend radius
