Maintains Category Cable Performance During Water Submersion
Product has successfully remained under test for 48 months, exceeding the 12 month minimum requirement. One 295 foot (90 meter) sample is pulled through 265 feet of dry, 3 inch diameter, conduit leaving 15 feet of cable exposed on the ends. The sample is then terminated and tested to the permanent link Category 6 requirements according to the TIA-568.C.2 standard. The conduit is then filled with water. A second, 295 foot (90 meter) sample, with taped ends, is pulled through the same water-filled conduit, also leaving 15 feet of cable exposed on the ends. The sample is then terminated and tested to the permanent link Category 6 requirements according to the TIA-568.C.2 standard. For both samples, IL Margin, RL Margin, NEXT Margin, and ACR-F Margin readings are recorded, monthly, over a period of at least one year.
