Rolled Over Network Cable Tested

By John Scanlan and Jermaine Wilson, Published Mar 02, 2022, 11:12am EST (Info+)

A common concern is that network cable will be damaged when rolled over by various machines on a job site, but how much of an impact does that actually have?

IPVM tested cables using a cable certifier and cable qualifier to accurately measure performance decay

In this report, IPVM examines:

  • Scissor lifts, SUVs, job carts, and wheeled garbage cans rolling over cable
  • Impact of cables without a spline, with a 2-way spline, or a 4-way spline
  • Certification Results
  • Qualifier results
  • Recommendations
