What does PIMF, LSZH, PIMF and AWG mean?

What does PIMF, LSZH, PIMF and AWG mean?

Netwerkkabel.eu sells cables with PIMF-norm, LSZH norm. Cables can also be made from PVC. What does it mean? They also have an AWG-significance. 

PIMF
Netwerkkabel.eu sells cables with PIMF-Norm. It stands for Pair In Metal Foil' and means that every pair is separately shielded with foilIt also called S/FTP. 

LSZH
LSZH means 'Low Smoke Zero Halogen'. When the cable burns out or when the cable comes in contact with high temperatures, such as fire, a cable with LSZH will produce less smoke en there is no release of gas, due to the presence of Thermoplastic. 


PVC
PVC means'Polyvinyl Chloride'. When the cable burns out or when the cable comes in contact with high temperatures, such as fire, there is release of gas en it causes more smoke, due to the presence of halogen. 

 

The difference is physically present. Cables from PVC are soft. Cables made from LSZH are a bit sturdy.  


Cables made from LSZH and PVC are excellent to use.

AWG
AWG means 'American Wire Gauge'. It is an American code which is used for the measurement of the diameter of a wire. It is measured without isolation. 

The highter the number, the smaller the diameter and the smaller the wire. A wire with a higher thickness is suitable for long lenghts.

The calculation of the AWG can be very complicated.
