Our Prime Data Communications team checks conduit bends, pull boxes and joints to verify that the bend radius is optimal. Pulls through tightly bent elbow fixtures are always backfed. Where raceway or rack transitions expose cable, flexible conduit is recommended for protection.
Intrabuilding conduit runs can be in ceilings or walls or under floors, and are used when outlet locations are permanent and when no wiring flexibility is required. Conduit runs are best limited to 100’, with two or fewer 90-degree bends between pull points.
According to the National Electrical Code, conduit can be made of metallic tubing or rigid polyvinyl-chloride plastic.
Prime Data Communications supplies lifts and boring equipment as needed.

Cat 5, Cat 5e, Cat 6
We install Cat5, Cat5e and Cat6 on a daily basis. One of the big questions for teams making decisions is which cable to use. While Cat6 enables gigabit Ethernet (ideal if your volume of trasmitted data calls for gigabit performance), to achieve true gigabit ethernet speeds, every single component of your network needs to be gigabit rated. Think: switches, hubs, network interface cards.
Cat5e can still support gigabit speeds; and, frankly, its more economical and performs just as well in most environments. Where you’ll see the difference with Cat6 (the cable certified to handle gigabit ethernet) is in transmission performance. If your environment is inhospitable to twisted pair cabling (with interference from power lines, lights, or manufacturing equipment), then Cat6 should be your cable of choice.
CAT5: supports 10BASE-T and 100BASE-T network standards - networks running at 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps - rated at 100Mhz
CAT5e: (Cat5 enhanced) works like Cat5 but includes an upgrade that reduces crosstalk (bleeding of signals due to induction, slowing network transfer speeds), and can support gigabit ethernet (1000BASE-T) - networks running at 1000 Mbps - rated at 350Mhz, making it well suited for networks planning to upgrade to gigabit ethernet
