Composite coaxial cables combine a mix of power, signal and coax or data cable in one jacket and are increasingly popular in the security industry.
Applications include remote cameras situated away from the main installation such as in car parks or on roadside cameras where the cable is run over a series of pulleys enabling the camera to be lowered for servicing or cleaning. Other composite cables are available ‘shotgun style’ where the element, coax, power and signal are run parallel to each other but joined by a web.
Composite cables for specific security systems are also popular, in particular door entry phones, access control units and retail identification systems. A coax combined with multiple signal and power cores make for a quick, simple installation on video entry systems.
