Cable shielding is a type of barrier designed to protect the cable from external disruptions such as electrical interference (EMI), as well as prevents cable signals from interfering with their surrounding cables and equipment.

Copper is without question the more widely used wire material in the wire and cable industry today. However, that wasn’t always the case. In the 1960’s and through most of the 1970’s aluminum was the go to cable. In the late 1970’s aluminum’s popularity tanked until it started picking up again in the 1990’s. If you are not sure which cable is best suited of your application, copper cable or aluminum cable, keep reading.

Traditionally, cables are shielded by a round jacket. Look at any cable, any cable at all, from your smartphone charger to the HDMI connecting your entertainment system or if you dare – the cables inside your walls (electrical, data, low voltage, etc.). They are all round. Unless – you are brave enough to go another route, or actually another shape.

Wiring your house for today’s electronics while building or renovating, your house is easier and more cost effective than having to do so down the line. If you are planning or even wishing to one day have a home theater, install a high-capacity, high-grade wiring and cable during construction, while the walls are accessible.

Easy Steps To Wiring a Patch Panel

In our growing network environment, adding network components and expanding existing networks is a common need. Businesses and office buildings, as well as universities and even schools, have a growing population of internet users. The growth in the numbers of users / computers, often leads to the need for a central server, to link all computers and store information as needed. This is where a patch panel comes in. Read our article and find our patch panels at http://www.tektel.com/06-Ethernet-Patch-Panel.html

What are Ethernet Cables

What are Ethernet cables? They are cables used for wiring networks by connecting devices (computers, routers & switches) on a LAN (Local Area Network). They carry broadband signal between the network’s different components (computer, router, modem and any additional internet capable device).
Generally, Ethernet cables are made with 8 wires that are twisted into 4 pairs. The pairs are color coded with a solid color and its respective dashed/striped white.
Ethernet cables are made in two conductor formats – solid and stranded. A solid conductor cable is used for wiring buildings. Since it is a single conductor, it is easy to punch down onto wall jacks and patch panels. For best results, use solid for wall jacks and stranded for crimp connectors. A Stranded conductor cable is typically used for terminating standard RJ45 connectors to create patch cables. The cable itself is more flexible, and rolls up well.
There are UTP and STP Ethernet cables available. UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) is the more common of the two, and it has bundled wires inside a polyethylene jacket with no additional protection. UTP cables are best used for home and office networks, and where there is relative low degree of electromagnetic interference. STP (Shielded Twisted Pair) cables have a protective metallic foil designed to shield the signal from electrical interference and allow it to carry data at a faster speed.
Selecting the appropriate Ethernet cable per installation is crucial, but properly installing and maintaining the cable is equally important for best results.
