Telecommunications wire and cable assemblies can be customized to meet your unique business need. Many manufacturers also offer standard wire assemblies to help you determine a configuration that’s best for your company.
When choosing a wire assembly solutions provider, it’s important to inquire about the types of wire assembly options available. For example, does the provider offer both round and flat wire assemblies. It’s also a good idea to ask about custom telecom wire assembly disconnection. It’s always best to purchase cable assemblies that can be easily dismantled if necessary. It’s also important to consider the factors listed below to ensure that you purchase a cable assembly right for your networking needs.
1. Inquire about the elastic stretch of the cables used in the cable assembly.
2. Determine the data transmission rate of the manufacturer’s telecom assemblies.
3. Ask about the mechanical performance of the manufacturer’s telecom cable assemblies.
Confirm elasticity of cables used in telecom cable assembliesThe life of your cable assembly can be affected by the elasticity or cable retention and pull resistance of the cables used. For example, the retention of coaxial cables comes from the braid thickness.
Compare transmission rates of telecom cable assembliesCommunication cables include several twisted wires and can be shielded, unshielded, fiber optic or coaxial. The speed at which data is transmitted is highly dependent upon the type of cables used in the cable assembly. For example, shielded twisted pair cables support higher data transmission rates than unshielded twisted pair cables.
Investigate mechanical features of telecom cable assembliesThe performance of telecom wire assemblies can also be affected by several mechanical factors such as cable size, weight and crush and kink resistance. Be sure to discuss these factors with any prospective wire assembly providers before making a final purchase.
- To ensure optimal performance of your telecom cable assemblies, it's important that you consider where the cable assembly will be stored in your workplace. There are quite a few factors that can affect the operating of your assembly such as temperature, humidity and exposure to certain chemicals, fluids and dust.
