Category 6 cable characterics

  1. 1. 1<br />CABLE IDENTIFICATION<br />There are four basic parts of a cables composition:<br />The Sheath<br />Shield<br />Conductors<br />Insulation of Cable Pairs.<br />
  2. 2. 2<br />CABLE COMPOSITION<br />SHEATH<br />SHIELD<br />GEL*<br />INSULATION <br />OF CABLE PAIRS<br />CONDUCTORS<br />*UNDERGROUND OR BURIED CABLES<br />
  3. 3. 3<br />CABLE IDENTIFICATION CONT’D<br /><ul><li>25L’s use the information that is marked on the cable sheath to determine:
  4. 4. Type of cable
  5. 5. Gauge of the conductors
  6. 6. Number of pairs
  7. 7. On some cables the length measurement</li></li></ul><li>4<br />CABLE IDENTIFICATION CONT’D<br />100 pair cable<br />
  8. 8. 5<br />CABLE IDENTIFICATION CONT’D<br />50 pair cable<br />
  9. 9. 6<br />CABLE IDENTIFICATION CONT’D<br />CAT 6 cable<br />
  10. 10. 7<br />CABLE IDENTIFICATION CONT’D<br />PIC:<br />Plastic insulated cables are cables that have plastic or polyethylene insulation over the conductors. <br /> The most widely used type of cable.<br />
  11. 11. 8<br />PIC CABLE<br />
  12. 12. 9<br />CABLE IDENTIFICATION CONT’D<br />CAT 5/6<br />Used in LAN/WAN<br /> (Local Area Network/Wide Area Network) <br /> Designed for high speed data.<br /> Conductor pairs are twisted together in a regular spiral pattern. <br /> Limited to 100 meters for high speed data and should produce100MHz (bandwidth) capabilities.<br />
  13. 13. 10<br />CAT 6 CABLE<br />
  14. 14. 11<br />CABLE IDENTIFICATION CONT’D<br />UTP<br />Unshielded Twisted Pair are cables that have no metal shield. UTP is used indoors and comes in a variety of sizes. <br />
  15. 15. 12<br />What are the four parts of a cables <br />Composition? <br />Answer: Sheath; Shield; Conductors; <br /> Insulation of cable pairs<br />What type of material is used to insulate<br />the conductors on PIC cables?<br />Answer: Plastic/Polyethylene<br />
  16. 16. 13<br />CABLE PAIR IDENTIFICATION AND THE COLOR CODE<br />
  17. 17. 14<br />CABLE PAIR IDENTIFICATION<br />THREE CONSIDERATIONS<br />Geometric pattern of the cable<br />Color code of the individual conductors<br />Color units, subunits, or super units.<br />
  18. 18. 15<br />GEOMETRIC PATTERN OF THE CABLE<br />Cable conductors arranged in concentric pattern.<br />The center group, regardless of size, is always the start of the cable count.<br />Cables are arranged clockwise, starting with the center.<br />
  19. 19. 16<br />COLOR CODE OF THE INDIVIDUAL CONDUCTORS<br />Ten colors are used to identify the conductors.<br />The binder code uses the same ten colors to identify color units, subunits, and super units.<br />
  20. 20. 17<br />COLOR UNITS, SUBUNITS, OR SUPERUNITS.<br />A unit consists of 25 pairs of conductors.<br />A subunit is a 25-pair (unit) broken down into one 12-pair group and one 13-pair group, or 8,8,9 pair group, less than 25.<br />The super units consist of two or more units.<br />
  21. 21. 18<br />INSULATION COLOR CODE<br />TIP CONDUCTORS<br /> (Transmit)<br />RING CONDUCTORS<br /> (Receive)<br />1. BLUE<br />1. WHITE<br />2. RED<br />2. ORANGE<br />3. BLACK<br /> 3. GREEN<br />4. YELLOW<br />4. BROWN<br />5. VIOLET<br />5. SLATE<br />
  22. 22. 19<br />How many considerations are involved in<br />Identifying cable pairs?<br />Answer: Three<br />How many colors are used to identify conductors?<br />Answer: Ten colors<br />A unit consists of how many pairs of conductors?<br />Answer: 25 pair<br />
