Retrofit may be the buzzword with technologies like wireless, powerline and MoCA (Multimedia Over Coax) driving a new era in residential and commercial electronics, but the best way to connect networks remains through the use of a wired system.
The Skinny: The Anaheim, Calif.-based manufacturer Extron Electronics has recently addressed the cabling category with the launch of its XTP DTP 24 twisted-pair cable.
The Specs: Extron says this new cabling product is engineered to the company’s high standards and the new cable is certified to deliver up to 475 MHz of bandwidth as far as 330 feet (100 meters).
Extron manufactures the 24AWG product with solid-copper conductors that are within braid and foil shielding, and the cable is available in plenum and non-plenum versions in bulk quantities of 1,000 feet that includes self-dispensing packaging. The company also points out supporting products like its XTP DTP 24 RJ-45 plugs, punch-down jacks and couplers are also available in lots of 10.
Solutions: The cabling can be used for everything from standard data installs to advanced audio and video system installations.
