MODULAR CABLING SYSTEMS (RAPIDRUN)
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** RapidRun is a modular audio/video cabling system that easily fits through conduit and allows for quick upgrades with no field terminations. The cables come in a variety of options including plenum and non-plenum, fit in standard single-gang wall boxes, and incorporates commercial grade connectors. Pulling through conduit is made easy with a pull cap included on all cables. The pull cap is designed to break at certain strains in order to eliminate potential damage to the cable itself. RapidRun has simple, color-coded Break-Aways that require no tools, splicing or soldering. Many configuration options are available to meet the needs of virtually any PC and audio/video application.
By supporting resolutions of 1080p for displays and up to 1920x1200 for computers, and with lengths ranging from 15ft to 100ft - RapidRun Digital s the perfect connectivity solution for A/V equipment used in classrooms or conference rooms. Each Runner includes a connector with a protective pulling cap that can withstand 30 lbs. of tension - making for a safe, easy installation in conduit. Shielded 24AWG copper conductors protect against EMI and RFI to ensure uninterrupted performance. High quality materials and construction, along with rigorous factory testing and a full lifetime warranty, guarantee long term, dependable performance.

3.2
INSTALLATION - GENERAL
A.
Install in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.
3.3
CABLE INSTALLATION
A.
General (applicable to all cable types): Provide non-plenum (CM/CMR, OFNR) rated cable for locations where cable is to be installed in conduit. For cable not installed in conduit, provide plenum (CMP, OFNP) rated cable if cable is installed in a plenum air space environment, non-plenum rated otherwise. Cabling shall bear plenum or non-plenum markings for the environment in which it is installed.
1.
For Horizontal Distribution: Provide station cable in types, sizes, and quantities as shown on the Contract Documents. Install cable between the station and its associated telecommunications room. Provide one cable per each connector at each station. Provide cables of the same type in the same color - multiple colors of the same cable type are not acceptable.
2.
For Intrabuilding Backbone Distribution: Provide intrabuilding backbone cable in types, sizes, and quantities as shown on the Contract Documents. Install intrabuilding backbone cables between telecommunications rooms within the same building. Provide cables of the same type in the same color - multiple colors of the same cable type are not acceptable.
3.
Install cable in compliance with ANSI/TIA/EIA and ISO/IEC 11801 requirements and BICSI TCIM practices.
4.
Adhere to the bending radius and pull strength requirements as detailed in the ANSI/TIA/EIA standards and the manufacturer's installation recommendations during cable handling and installation.
a.
Pull all cables simultaneously where more than one cable is being installed in the same raceway.
b.
Use pulling compound or lubricant where necessary. Use compounds that will not damage conductor or insulation (Polywater, or approved equal).
c.
Use pulling means, including fish tape, cable, rope, and basket-weave wire/cable grips that will not damage media or raceway. Repair or replace conduit bushings that become damaged during cabling installation.
5.
Install cable in a continuous (non-spliced) manner unless otherwise indicated.
6.
Install exposed cable parallel to and perpendicular to surfaces on exposed structural members and follow surface contours where possible.
7.
Tie or clamp cabling. Attaching cables to pipes, electrical conduit, mechanical items, existing cables, or the ceiling support system (grids, hanger wires, etc. - with the exception of ceiling support anchors) is not acceptable. Install tie-wraps in conformance with the SCS manufacturer's installation recommendations. Do not over-tighten tie wraps or cause cross-sectional deformation of cabling.
8.
Cable at the backboards:
a.
Lay and dress cables to allow other cables to enter raceway (conduit or otherwise) without difficulty at a later time by maintaining a working distance from these openings.
b.
Route cable as close as possible to the ceiling, floor, sides, or corners to insure that adequate wall or backboard space is available for current and future equipment and for cable terminations.
c.
Lay cables via the shortest route directly to the nearest edge of the backboard from mounted equipment or blocks. Support cables so as not to create a load on the equipment upon which the cables are terminated. Tie-wrap similarly routed and similar cables together and attach to D-rings vertically or horizontally, then route over a path that will offer minimum obstruction to future installations of equipment, backboards or other cables.
9.
Cable in the telecommunications rooms:
a.
For telecommunications rooms with ladder rack, lay cable neatly in ladder rack in even bundles and loosely secure cabling to the ladder rack at regular intervals with tie-wraps or velcro straps.

b.
For Intrabuilding Backbone Distribution: Test all cable pairs for length, shorts, opens, continuity, polarity reversals, transposition (wire map), and the presence of AC voltage. All pairs shall demonstrate compliance to TIA/EIA 568-B Category 3 standards.
1)
Test copper cable on the reel upon delivery to the job site, again prior to installation, and again after installation.
2)
Test entire channel, from termination block to termination block.
3)

a)
Fluke DSP-4000, or approved equal.
2.
Fiber: Test fiber optic cable on the reel upon delivery to the job site prior to installation, and again after installation.
a.
Prior to testing, calculate the cable loss budget for each fiber optic cable and clearly show the result on the test documentation. Calculate maximum loss using the following formula, assuming no splices:
1)
For Horizontal Distribution:
a)
Max Loss = 2.0db (per ANSI/TIA/EIA 568-B).
2)
For Backbone Distribution:
a)
Max Loss = [(allowable loss/km) * (km of fiber)] + [(.3db) * (# of connectors)].
b)
A mated connector to connector interface is defined as a single connector for the purposes of the above formula.
c)
A given fiber strand shall not exceed its calculated maximum loss (per the above formula).
b.
Test all strands using a bi-directional end-to-end optical transmission loss test instrument (such as an OTDR) trace performed per ANSI/TIA/EIA 455-61 or a bi-directional end-to-end power meter test performed per ANSI/TIA/EIA 455-53A, and ANSI/TIA/EIA 568-B.
1)
Calculate loss numbers by taking the sum of the two bi-directional measurements and dividing that sum by two.
2)
Provide test measurements as follows:
a)
For Multimode Cable: Test at both 850 and 1300nm.
c.
For Singlemode Cable: Test at both 1310 and 1550nm.

C.
Identify cables and equipment that do not pass to the Architect. Determine the source of the non-compliance and replace or correct the cable or the connection materials, and retest the cable or connection materials at no additional expense to the Owner. Provide new test results in the same manner as above.
1.
In addition to the above, if it is determined that the cable is at fault, remove the damaged cable and replace it with a new cable. Cable "repairs" are not acceptable. The procedure for removing the cable shall be as follows:
a.
Prior to removal of damaged cable and installation of new cable:
1)
Inform the Owner of the schedule for the removal and installation.
2)
Test the new cable on the reel.
3)
Test cables that occupy the same innerduct or conduit (if not in innerduct) as the damaged cable, regardless of whether or not they are new cables installed as part of this project or existing cables installed prior to this project.
4)
Provide test results for approval.
b.
Remove the damaged cable and provide new cable.
c.
After the removal of the damaged cable and installation of the new cable:
