Paige DataCom Solutions releases cable for hazardous locations

paige gamechanger hazardous location 920x533Paige DataCom Solutions, a developer of the GameChanger Cable, a cable designed to exceed the reach of traditional category cable significantly, has announced a new version of the cable to support the special requirements of hazardous locations

This new cable for hazardous locations can support a wide range of industrial applications, including petroleum refineries, fuel-service aircraft hangers, gasoline storage and dispensing areas, paint shops and installations, utility gas plants, chemical plants, and alcohol/cannabis production facilities.

David Coleman, vice-president of business development for Paige, said, “This brings a new, important and much more affordable option to installations typically requiring costly solutions.

“For those applications classified as Hazardous, this is a game-changer. With the CI/D1 rating this armoured cable allows installers to skip the expensive and time-consuming installation of rigid pipe, and with a reach that goes well over two times traditional cable, this can save a significant amount of time and money.”

In addition, this version of the cable is ordered cut by the foot. It can even be factory terminated, eliminating the potential need to purchase a standard cable length that is far lengthier than the installation requires.

Paige’s GameChanger cable delivers 1Gb/s Ethernet and PoE+ up to 656 feet (200 meters) and 10Mb/s Ethernet and PoE+ up to 850 feet making it an ideal pairing for explosion-proof cameras, WAPs and other edge devices. This cable eliminates intermediate requirements for IDFs and the need to install repeaters, power supplies and other equipment that are expensive and introduce additional failure points.
