[Q] What effect does the weather have on CAT 5 Cable?
[A] That is a very open-ended question, but we will address some
of the most common concerns regarding this matter:
CAT 5 Cable worth having will be made of the finest materials
that can be used. If this is the case, the cable itself will
be able to tolerate a very wide range of temperature extremes.
The quality of the jacketing on the individual wires, and the
main outer jacket are critical to determining how well the cable
will hold up..
"bargain" cable will quickly reveal itself as not
so much of a bargain. Inferior quality jacketing will quickly
begin to show signs of deterioration, cracking, and overall failure.
Once the outer jacket has been compromised, the individual wires
are exposed and they will begin to become exposed as well.
makes no difference if the cable is being used indoors or outdoors.
Even many indoor applications are in areas of the building that
will see variations in humidity and temperature extremes.
in heat and cold can damage even the best cable if not properly
protected. Any ability to conceal or cover the cable to keep
it free from direct sunlight and air will have a huge impact
on the life span. If the installation will allow for it, the
use of protective conduit would be the best solution.
