FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 14, 2019
Jackson, MS – June 14, 2019 – Trilogy Communications, Inc., a U.S. based cable manufacturer, has announced the release of the first UL 2196 communications cable assembly solution for Emergency Responder Radio Communication Systems (ERRCS). RediComm™ High Temperature 1/2″ Plenum Cables have an easy to identify red colored, plenum rated jacket for Public Safety DAS deployments.
Today’s In-building Communications Systems primarily use coaxial cables to distribute Radio Frequency (RF) signals throughout a building. The applicable fire codes are interpreted as requiring the cables to survive the two-hour circuit integrity testing method per the UL 2196 Standard. Industry standard plenum cables are manufactured with materials which structurally fail around 300°F, rendering them non-functional for transmission of RF signals. To meet the two-hour requirement, many Authority Having Jurisdictions (AHJs) are requiring protective assemblies that include installing the cable inside rigid steel conduit and wrapping it with up to five layers of a thermal protective barrier. Trilogy has developed a high temperature plenum cable (part number APH012J50) which is stable, on its own, up to 1100°F; and meets the two-hour fire test requirement when protected by only three layers of a thermal protective barrier. The result is a solution which not only operates at much higher temperatures than standard plenum cables, but is significantly more cost effective to deploy. Some of the many benefits of Trilogy’s AirCell® RediComm™ High Temperature Plenum Cable include:
