Cat5 Cables – Tips to Test Their Quality

By Joshedavid Subscribe to RSS | June 20th 2012 | Views:

Any person who has participated in any form of building activities, irrespective of whether it is a home building or commercial building in the past five years, might have come across networking cables, which is otherwise called as cat5 cables. Even though, a homeowner beginning his construction does not need a network, installation of these cables can be useful for the future. These networking cables as basically wires that can make it easier for the homeowners to connect multiple computers in such a way that all computers in the building can get access to the internet.

Nowadays, Cat5 cable is offered in bulk spools of 1000 to help out building owners and even if they have smaller buildings, they need lengthy cables for running through and around corners of the building. Not only network cables, but also in-wall speaker wires are offered in bulk quantities these days. These bulk cables are offered at good price and it is the responsibility of the building owner to terminate the cable. This can be done with the help of crimping tool being sold in the market these days. The most costly ingredient in any networking cable is the copper and when there is an increase in the price of copper, there will naturally be an increase in the cost of cables. For adjusting the price shocks at a faster pace, manufacturers use lesser copper and as an alternative to copper they use other metals like Copper Clad Aluminum Alloy (CCA). It is better not to go for cables made out of CCA even though some manufacturers are using more of copper and less of CCA, some other use a little copper and this makes the cable unfit for performing fundamental networking duties.

If a purchaser wishes to go for CCA cables, he can differentiate between the good cable and bad cable by:

Trying to make a curve around a loop and if the cable breaks within first 15 loops, it is of bad quality Cutting a narrow piece from the cable and if the cable becomes aluminum-colored within a single stroke, it is a thin cable and a good cable will take at least two to three strokes before the aluminum-colored cable appears.

Around 15 pounds of weight for 1000 spool is the quality of a good CCA cable and if the cable weighs less, it is better not to purchase the cable

Nowadays, there are the best cable dealers offering a wide range of cable inclusive of in-wall speaker wires online and the homeowners can make their purchase online conveniently.
