Cat 5e & Fibre Optic Cable Installation
In March 2015, we completed a Category 5e structured cabling and fibre optic installation in a 65000 sq ft food production factory.
In this factory environment, the structured cabling installation works were high-up, complex, and reasonably tricky – plus the added care that needs to be taken when working around foodstuffs in a 24/7 production environment.
During the work, we completed the installation of 2 OM3 multimode fibre optic cables, and terminated them as LC terminations using a cold cure glue-and-polish method.The optical fibre cable route was both inside and outside the building. Once terminations were completed, we undertook loss insertion measurements on the cables and ensured they exceeded the minimum design losses.
We also installed Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) Cat 5e cabling to 10 locations in the factory to allow for ethernet connections to various pieces of equipment.
The cable routes and pathways required the installation of girder clips and various cabling hangers to support the installation. At this site, we also fitted white plastic PVC cable conduits and surface trunking.
