L-com Global Connectivity has unveiled a new series of outdoor-rated direct burial and aerial messenger bulk cable designed for use in outside plant (OSP) applications.
The Cat5e features outdoor-rated jackets which protect against moisture and UV (sunlight) damage. Additionally, the cable is EIA568 colour-coded for compatibility with standard installations and features solid conductors for termination into standard IDC connectors and for use with PoE applications.
The new outdoor aerial messenger bulk cable is offered in Cat5e and Cat6 ratings and features a figure 8 design to ensure maximum stability even under high wind load. Both UTP and F/UTP shielded and unshielded cable types are offered in 1,000 foot lengths.
"Our new direct burial and aerial messenger cable addresses our customers' needs for OSP applications that require high performance, rugged cable runs that will stand up to environmental extremes. This new bulk cable line can be used in a wide variety of applications across myriad industries," said Dustin Guttadauro, Product Manager.
