  • TruHome – HA Composite Cables

    Developed with the future in mind, the FSC Tru series of home automation composite cables have been designed for HD media distribution around the home. By combining individual elements such as digital coax, HDBaseT Recommended Cat 5E & Cat 6, fibre, and building control cable in a single jacket, these media composite cables are far less likely to get kinked or damaged which can make installations much easier.


  • What is DALI?

    DALI stands for Digital Addressable Lighting Interface and is part of IEC 60929, an international standard for dimming and digital lighting control communication that’s been around since 2002. DALI is very easy to install, extremely versatile and a cost-effective solution but still has great flexibility and functionality.


  • LSF vs LSHF

    - 09 Jul 2019 in News

    The main problem facing specifiers and contractors is the confusion over terminology and standards. Is LSHF (Low Smoke Halogen Free) the same as LSF (Low Smoke and Fume)? These terms are all widely used within the cable industry and we still encounter confusion from contractors surrounding the difference between LSF and LSHF cables.


  • Screened Ethernet cables were designed for use in environments where electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) are present. Examples include manufacturing, automation and Industrial control applications where motors, generators, transformers and other noise emitting industrial machines are in use or where you may be concerned about interference from other cables in the area.

  • For the sixth year running, CEDIA trade supplier FS Cables will return to Sandown Park for the Essential Install Live exhibition. Located on Stand 25, the FS team will be available to chat about your home automation & building control cabling requirements. You can also find out more about the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) and how it will affect you.


  • What is CPR?
    The Construction Products Regulation (CPR) has been around for many years. CPR covers the fire performance and other aspects of various products used in construction.
    The idea is that people involved in the design and construction of buildings will be able to make more informed decisions about the potential spread of fire of the products they choose. Cables are the latest products to be regulated this way.
