We Continue to Innovate with Award-Winning Cables

Beldens cable designs have been singled out for recognition in the trade press, at a variety of trade shows and, most importantly, with our customers. A few are represented here.

Banana Peel : Transforming Composite Cable Installation Chief among these offerings is an entirely new concept in composite cable design called Banana Peel. Belden patented Banana Peel cables* are an installers dream, offering an easy-to-install, fully integrated version of a composite cable construction where the various cables are not just bundled together but affixed to a center spline for easy pulling.Banana Pee l Cable

Safe-T-Lin e Cable

A Whole New Level of Security: Belden Safe-T-Line Cables

But theres more Belden has gone one step further in installation ease by completely eliminating the overall jacket. Without this jacket, a whole step in the installation process is eliminated, plus the individual cable components are all instantly identifiable and ready for termination. Installers can now pull of a variety of cables at once, then simply peel the individual cables off the center spline and terminate them. Its that easy.

Another recent award-winning cable is Beldens Safe-T-Line Circuit Integrity cable a cable that allows the EVAC systems in high-rise office buildings to remain operational for two hours in the event of a fire or other emergency. This allows the building occupants an opportunity to hear either live or recorded voice instructions that will guide them out of the building in a timely and orderly way. Reliability of this kind takes design integrity something that our customers define as a core Belden competency. DigiTruck : An Extremely Small Cable with Big Performance Award-winning DigiTruck is a revolutionary new cable with superior return loss characteristics that has been designed specifically for analog, SDI, HD video and AES/EBU digital audio transmission in broadcast production trucks. DigiTruck is a miniature coaxial cable, weighing just 7.25 lbs per 1,000 feet, or about 60% less than a standard Mini RG 59/U coax. It also requires approximately 40% less space. Only Belden could devise such an innovative and efficient solution to meet the broadcast needs of todays weightchallenged and space-cramped mobile television trucks.

Premier Structured Cabling Systems Both Copper and Fiber Are Now Part of the Belden Line-UpOur full range of Belden IBDN copper and fiber structured cabling products and systems can be found in the Commercial Networking sections (Sections 15, 16 and 17), where youll also find a full complement of training programs for Belden IBDN. All Belden IBDN networking system components are engineered to exacting specifications and manufactured under the most stringent quality controls. The components used in our Belden IBDN Systems including backbone cables, cross-connect hardware, cross-connect patch wires and cords, and horizontal cables have been specifically designed to work together as an integrated system. To complete the installation, our product offering also includes a variety of outlets, connector modules, faceplates, adapters and modular cords. Our flagship system, Belden IBDN System 10GX, is revolutionary not only in its expression as a fully integrated 10 Gigabit structured cabling solution, but in the way it has been designed around a series of dynamic enabling technologies. These technologies help solve the two major performance issues that plague most other manufacturers, yet they are instrumental to 10 Gigabit transmissions: the ability to significantly reduce Alien Crosstalk and the control of key electrical characteristics during high frequency operation. System 10GX and other Belden IBDN structured cabling systems have been widely installed around the world. Their ubiquity is testimony to the proven success of these systems. Other top-performing structured cabling systems in the Belden IBDN mix include: All Belden IBDN Systems Are Fully Certified To be Certified each Belden IBDN system must be designed and installed by a factory-trained Certified System Vendor (CSV), plus the system must be composed of all Belden IBDN components. A 25-year Product Warranty and a Lifetime Application Assurance program accompany each Belden IBDN Certified System installation, including coverage for both parts and labor. Our Customer Training Programs Are an Industry Standard To facilitate our customers understanding of structured cabling and in order to keep both our customers and our CSVs current with new technologies, techniques and industry standards we offer the Belden IBDN Training Center. With classes taught by a highly credentialed staff with over 100 years of cumulative experience in structured cabling, this Center serves the needs of more than 5,000 individuals each year.
