Alarm wire is useful for both hardwired and wireless alarm systems. With a hardwired alarm system, running wire is almost a must, but even if you choose to run wire with a wireless system (for example- extra power supply from a transformer to the alarm’s control panel) having extra wire is important. We understand the need and convenience of having solid alarm wires, which is why we stock reliable cable products to get the job done and make your installation simple and enlightening.
Category 5 cable (cat 5) is a twisted pair cable for carrying signals. This type of cable is used in structured cabling for computer networks such as Ethernet. The cable standard provides performance of up to 350 MHz and is suitable for 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX (Fast Ethernet), and 1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet).
Category 6 cable, commonly referred to as Cat 6, is a standardized cable for Gigabit Ethernet and other network physical layers that is backward compatible with the Category 5/5e and Category 3 cable standards. Compared with Cat 5 and Cat 5e, Cat 6 features more stringent specifications for crosstalk and system noise. The cable standard provides performance of up to 550 MHz and is suitable for 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX (Fast Ethernet), 1000BASE-T/1000BASE-TX (Gigabit Ethernet) and 10GBASE-T (10-Gigabit Ethernet).
Fire alarm systems serve as life lines to safe and secure buildings. As one of the leading manufacturers of fire alarm cable, SDI Cable knows proper cable selection is critical to effective system performance. Our fire alarm wire has many applications. Fire alarm cables may be used in smoke alarms and detectors, voice communications, addressable fire alarm systems, microprocessor controlled systems, pull boxes, burglar alarms, wiring of fire alarms, and fire protective circuits. The cables also meet NEC and UL guidelines.

The quality of the picture on your TV improves with the use of this cable so you can enjoy uninterrupted entertainment at home with outstanding audio and video signals.
Siamese cable makes it possible to run two types of wiring – typically for power and data transmission – to a given location through a single cable. Siamese cables offer cleaner and more organized installations, and are commonly used in video, surveillance camera and closed-circuit television (CCTV) applications for that very reason: equipment can be wired for power and signal without the installer having to use separate cables for each type of connection.
