L-com Carries Bulk Cable to Keep You Connected
Everyone knows that L-com manufactures cable assemblies, but did you know L-com carries Bulk Cable as well? Bulk cable is useful for making your own cable assemblies in cases where you have complex wiring requirements or you need to install bulk cable behind a wall or above a ceiling. Bulk cable is sold by the spool, reel, or box and in a set measure of length called a "put-up".
Fiber Optic Bulk CableFiber Optic bulk cable usually requires special training to terminate in the field. If you have trained personnel working, then Fiber Optic cable is often the best solution for long runs. Fiber Optic cable uses light pulses instead of electricity to carry voice, video and data signals, making it secure and resistant to EMI/RFI. This cable is sold by the meter with a 25 or 50 meter minimum order requirement. It is best to order 5% more cable than the total fiber run, in case you need to re-terminate. You will need to know how many fibers (order a higher fiber count in case of breakage during installation or for future expansion purposes). You will also need to know if you want multi-mode or single mode and what kind of jacket is required by the building codes (OFNR, OFNP).Multi-Conductor or Bulk Data Cable Multi-Conductor or Bulk Data Cable is the most common cable type used in many industries. It is constructed of multiple copper conductors in a single jacket. What is most important is whether or not you require the conductors to be twisted together and what kind of shielding you want. You'll also have to choose the type of jacket you'll need for your application. L-com offers Plenum Hi-Temp, LSZH, as well as traditional PVC jackets to choose from. Modular Bulk CableModular Bulk Cable is usually rated by EIA/TIA standards in terms of categories, such as, Category 5e or Category 6. This type of cable is most often used in computer networks. The most common put-up is 1,000 feet, on either reels or in pull boxes, which minimizes stress to the cable during the pulling process. Like other bulk cable types, these cables are available in Plenum, LSZH as well as traditional PVC jackets. You also have various shielding options to choose from.
USB Bulk CableThe Universal Serial Bus (USB) standard is unique because there are power conductors along with a twisted pair of signal conductors within a single jacket and it has a dual shield. L-com carries this special bulk cable in 100, 500, and 1000 foot put-ups to allow you to make your own USB cables. Don't forget to purchase your USB connectors from L-com to complete your project!
