Installation cable requirements
Need to specify a cable type for a site
Installation cables have to be chosen taking in to account the local regulations and legislation, the installation environment and the electrical requirements.
The Continuum specifications give the electrical requirements.
For this reason actual cable types, makes or Belden numbers can not be stated, only as helpful guidance as a cable that may meet the electrical requirements only.
BACNET MSTP - See What cable type should be used for BACnet MS/TP communications?.
CARD READER - See the manufacturers requirements for the cables, also Maximum Cable Length Between ACX and Card reader.
ANALOGUE and DIGITAL INPUTS - See the relevant Continuum specification eg. I/O Modules. See Andover Continuum IO System Reference (especially note screening and grounding requirements)
