FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 11th, 2021
Pearl, Miss. (August 11, 2021) – Trilogy Communications, Inc., a leading designer, manufacturer, and marketer of highly specialized coaxial cable for advanced government and commercial wireless communication, and advanced networks, has announced the fire-resistive UL 2196 certification of their RediComm™ High-Temperature Plenum Cable. This product is the first self-sustained 1⁄2” 50 Ohm coaxial cable from Trilogy Communications to be UL 2196 Certified. The UL 2196 certification is an important attribute where the integrity of a building’s communication cables, such as those used for emergency response, needs to be maintained to sustain a signal connection when subjected to extreme conditions.
The testing and certification were conducted by Intertek, a global safety certification company known for testing many of today’s latest technologies.
Testing mimics an environment that would be present during a building fire. The cables are exposed to varying temperatures up to 1850°F for two hours. Afterward, the cable is then subjected to a pressurized hose stream of water. All circuits must work to pass. Trilogy’s cable passed five out of five tests to receive certification.
“This plenum cable has the same basic characteristics as our other ½” coax cables as far as physical bend radiuses, so it’s still easy to install,” said Bruce Deer, Chief Executive Officer of Trilogy Communications. “It is certified to withstand a high temperature in case of a fire without additional wraps or insulation material, or having to put it into a special pathway that’s protected from the fire itself. When installed properly, this product will help to protect the lives of first responders.”
Production on the RediComm™ cable is already underway at Trilogy’s 225,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Pearl, Mississippi, and stock is available for August shipment. Deer says the cable will be a high performance and cost-effective alternative to other products currently available on the market.
