In particular, harsh environments require that networking cables be built to meet the environmental challenges in order to insure signal transmission quality. Environmental hazards include EMI, chemicals, water, crushing, flex and temperature extremes.
So what should you look for in a cable to stand up to these hazards?
Frank Koditek, our product line manager – industrial cables, will present exactly what you should look for in the upcoming Cabling Installation & Maintenance Magazine Webinar: Cabling for Industrial and Other Harsh Environments.
Frank will present the first segment: Protecting Cable from the Elements.
Structured cabling systems are not always deployed under pristine conditions. User environments such as industrial and manufacturing plants are inherently challenging in that they require physical toughness from the cabling and networking systems within them. Likewise, some cabling systems reside where they are subject to temperature extremes, outdoor weather conditions, and physical dangers such as crush. This webcast, hosted by Cabling Installation & Maintenance, discusses the types of cabling systems that are best equipped to stand up to these environmental conditions while remaining capable of supporting signal transmission.
