Description

Commercial Applications 300 Volt CMR FT4 Rated Communication and Control Cable

This 22 AWG 2 pair/4 conductor Communication and Control Cable has stranded bare copper conductors with .007 PVC insulation and short overall twist lengths. Cable has filler as required and shielded tape with a drain wire. The PVC jacket is Gray with sequential footage marking. Cables are manufactured to meet current NEC guidelines and are verified by outside standards organizations including UL and ETL. Cable is RoHS compliant and plenum rated with NEC articles of 800 CMR. The voltage rating is 300 Volts with a temperature rating of 75°C. This cable can be used for the following applications, Security Systems, Intercom Systems, Sound/Audio System and Power-Limited Controls.

Plenum vs Riser in Cabling Design - Why Plenum?

A plenum space is the open area above the drop ceiling or below the floor that is used for air circulation in buildings. This could be a problem if there is ever a fire. Using non-plenum cables in a plenum space can spread fire and toxic smoke throughout a building. Plenum cable uses a flame-retardant jacket that is made of special plastics to prevent the release of harmful smoke. Plenum cable is mostly used in commercial applications such as schools and hospital buildings that house a large population of people. It also is required in most multi-floor business buildings with large plenum space areas.

Plenum vs Riser in Cabling Design

1. Plenum Rated Cable: Plenum cables have a higher fire rating and are designed with fire-retardant plastic jacket of either a low-smoke PVC or a fluorinated ethylene polymer (FEP).

2. Riser Rated Cable: Riser rated cables run between floors through cable risers or in elevator shafts  in non-plenum areas.  These cables must also self extinguish and prevent the flame from traveling up the cable in a vertical burn test.

3. General Purpose Cable: General Purpose cables have no fire rating. These are not comparable to Riser or Plenum cable jackets because when General Purpose cables burn they release smoke and toxins, as there are no fire safety aspects to these cables.

Where to use Plenum Access Control Cable

A broad range of applications exist for access control composite cabling. It is widely used with keypad/card readers, retinal scanners, door contact, request to exit and lock power device connectivity in commercial settings such as schools, universities, hospitals, airports, government buildings, train and transportation centers, stadiums, and arenas. Since this access control cable has multiple conductors under one jacket, the preparation, set up, and termination time is shorter.

Where to use Plenum Access Control Cable

Access Control Composite

The Access Control Composite series includes four components required for card readers, door contacts, locking power, and retinal scanners in commercial buildings, distribution centers, manufacturing facilities, government buildings, and educational campuses.
