[Q] Can CAT 5 Cable survive weather?
[A] There have been many questions regarding applications using CAT 5 Cable where the cable will be run in locations
such as attics or in crawl spaces of the home. The concern is
over how the cable will survive the temperature extremes that
often can be found in these locations. Many installers have
discovered the need to run cable underneath structures, completely
exposed for connecting one building to another. This is not
the ideal setup of course, but it can be done .
most applications in the United States, this should not be a
very large concern provided you are using a quality cable to
begin with. Standard PVC jacketing found on higher-quality CAT
5 Cable can withstand temperatures ranging from -4 to 167 degrees
fahrenheit. This will be more than sufficient to withstand temperatures
experienced in most residential applications.
is important to remember that if you have a specialized application
involving extremely high or low temperatures, there are many
commercially available products being made that can be used
to insulate cable bundles and allow them to operate way outside
of their normal performance ratings. Always consult a professional
to determine which product will be right for your application..
is always best to do a little research before you start.
