What is LSZH/LS0H Cable?

09/12/2019
by: Khatia
Low smoke zero halogen (hereafter referred to as LSZH but also called LSOH, LS0H, LSFH or OHLS) is a material classification that is common to cable and wire casings. When exposed to flames and high levels of heat, LSZH materials produce very little visible smoke (compared to PVC and other similar materials) and no halogens, which can be harmful to humans. There are...

What is PoE?

19/11/2019
by: Khatia
Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a technology for wired local area networks that allows the electrical current necessary for the operation of each device to be carried by the data cables rather than by power cords. Doing so minimizes the number of wires that must be strung in order to install the network. PoE was originally developed in 2003 to support devices like Wi-Fi access...

Like a shield used during battle, shielding in cables acts as a barrier that protects the cable from external threats, such as electrical interference (EMI). It also prevents cable signals from interfering with surrounding cables and equipment. While not all environments demand such a robust cable, shielding is becoming more common. When it first became available,...
