Tru now stock the all-in-one Tree cable, designed for use for Loxone Tree devices – whether that’s motion sensors, switches or LED spots. Available on 100m, 200m and 500m reels as well as cut to length and all for next day delivery. CPR certified and LSHF versions are also available.
The CPR class Cca KNX cable from FS Cables (also known as TP1 cable) features two twisted pairs of solid conductor with a foil screen and tinned copper drain wire with a distinctive Low Smoke Halogen Free (LSHF) green jacket. It’s been tested and certified as being suitable for use in KNX systems and bears the KNX logo. A single pair cable, with a reduced outer diameter, is also available from stock, often used as a jumper or patch cable.
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.
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.
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.
FS Cables have added white and violet colour options to the TruHD range of Cat 6A HDBaseT Recommended cables. Ideal for fast data and media transmission around the home, including 4K video, Cat 6A is a perfect solution for the modern building.
As a member of the HDBaseT Alliance, FS Cables offers the perfect cabling solution to ‘future proof’ modern buildings.
HDBaseT is the leading standard for distribution of uncompressed HD media over a single cable, with runs up to 100m. The HDBaseT standard allows distribution of HD video, audio, 100BaseT Ethernet, power and control across a single cable, delivering full HD, 3D and 4K video. High quality audio formats including Dolby Digital, Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD-Master Audio are all supported. Ethernet distribution, control and up to 100W DC power (PoE) are also delivered across the same cable.
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.
As we cut to length required on most cables, from time to time we have short lengths available which we can offer great savings on.
As a Black Friday promotion, FS Cables are offering huge discounts on our popular 16/2 & 16/4 OFC speaker cables in both PVC and LSHF on lengths below 100m.
The TruHome series of home automation composite cables has been upgraded to include the popular TV100 coaxial cable.
Developed with the future in mind, these composite cables are designed for media distribution around the home. The standard RG6 coax has been replaced with the TV100, which is compatible with the F-Type Self Install connector.
FS Cables now stock a range of standard and Ultra Thin HDMI leads, designed to distribute full HD 1080p and 4K video.
As part of the Tru range, these HDMI leads have been manufactured to the highest quality to ensure the best possible connection, while meeting requirements for the current HDMI standard. Both cables feature gold plated contacts and connector body as well as oxygen free conductors/cores, providing the best possible audio visual experience.
The EZ-RJ45 connectors are quicker and easier to use than the conventional method and offer an improved connection. The connector ensures a better contact with the cable jacket, while maintaining the cables twist rate.
As a member of the HDBaseT Alliance, FS Cables are offering large stocks of HDBaseT Recommended Cat 5E & Cat 6 cables in a range of different colours.
Available in either PVC or LSHF and in 305 metre pull boxes for your convenience, these cables are offered in black, blue, red, white, grey, violet, pink, orange, yellow and green for easy identification.
