Custom Communication Cable

A company that specializes in direct line text messaging products strives for efficiency in communication as well as efficiency within their own business. This customer came to Allied Wire and Cable looking for a custom communication cable to be used in the manufacture of their text messaging machines, developed for commercial and industrial use.

The customer requested a custom composite cable, built to existing specifications. This was an effective solution for them because it allowed one cable to be used instead of many. In a composite cable, different sizes and types of wires can be combined under one jacket and perform a variety of functions. This makes for faster manufacturing, simpler purchasing, and easier inventory management and installation. It is also more cost-effective than purchasing individual cables.

The cable also needed to be plenum-rated, as communications cables are often run through a building’s plenum spaces. These are the areas normally used for air circulation in heating and cooling systems. Because of the fire safety risks associated with the location, the plenum rating is usually necessary to meet building codes and regulations. Plenum-rated cables are coated with a fire-retardant material, in order to limit the amount of smoke and toxic gas given off in the event of a fire.

Allied was able to accommodate all of the customer’s requirements and built a custom plenum communication cable with a composite construction to their exact specifications. AWC was also able to offer superior pricing, beating out offers from other custom cable providers.
