PCT International Debuts Triton Coaxial Cable
By Jyothi Shanbhag, TMCnet Contributor
PCT International, a worldwide manufacturer of last-mile and access-network solutions for broadband communications networks, has reportedly introduced patent-pending “Triton” design coaxial cable in standard, tri-shield and quad-shield configurations.
According to the company, the new Triton cable offers easy installation, helps in increasing the network integrity service quality and extends the ability of the cable to maintain peak performance standards over its service life.
It features dry, anti-corrosion technology, low-loss physical foam HDPE dielectric for superior electrical performance and the ability to withstand temperatures as low as -40 Celsius.
In addition, the latest design is best suited for harsh environments and also fits in well with innovative construction techniques, including a new foil design. This helps in maintaining the physical profile and ease of installation of smaller diameter cables, while providing the protection against noise and signal loss that characterize larger cable construction, the company said.
Also, Triton cable jackets maintain the same industry-leading UV stability that is characteristic of PCT International (News - Alert) cable designs.
Steve Youtsey, president and CEO of PCT International said, “PCT International’s philosophy has been that every part of the cable infrastructure contributes to overall network integrity, and no individual element can be taken for granted. This philosophy is the cornerstone of our ‘hardening-the-drop’ solution, our product designs and our innovations. Triton cable is emblematic of our dedication to innovate in every area to provide our customers with the best possible network performance.”
Steve Craddock, a senior technical advisor who will join PCT International as CTO in January said that the Triton has been uniquely designed to deliver the superior performance consumer’s desire, while providing operators with longer service life and a more efficient installation that saves time and minimizes misconnections.
PCT is headquartered in Tempe, Ariz., and its portfolio includes transmission and connectivity products for the broadband, CATV, satellite and structured wiring markets.
