At PI Manufacturing, we carry a large selection of cable ties, ranging for use in residential or commercial applications. Before purchasing a cable tie for your application, make note of the tensile strength.
Understanding Tensile Strength
The minimum tensile strength is the load capacity or weight a cable tie can hold. This is determined according to the Military Specification and Standards of the USA. When a cable tie listing includes the minimum tensile strength, this shows the weight that
Differences Between OM3 and OM4 Fiber
When deciding between OM3 and OM4, here are a few considerations for you to take into account.
OM - Optical Multimode
Used for short distances, Optical Multimode (OM) is a type of optical fiber with a large core diameter that allows multiple modes of light to propagate inside the core. This allows more data to pass through, however due to the amount of light being reflected and the attenuation that accompanies it, this type o
Cat5e has been around for quite some time now, while Cat6, Cat6a are following in the footsteps with overall faster speeds and many other differences such as price, length, and shielding options in cable runs. Talking about speed first, generally Cat5e can go up to 1 Gigabit with 350 Mhz, where Cat6 and Cat6a are at 10 Gigabit with 550 Mhz. For most residential and home usage, Cat5e will be the preferred choice as the distances are fairly short and the speed in regular home internet setups would likely not b
