MAIN LINE CABLE: The .500 cable will run from the basement to the
first floor where it will be cut leaving a 6 ft tail. The cable
leaving the first floor will also have a 6 ft tail this will be
repeated at each communications room up to the top floor where 1 –
6ft tail will end the process. This cable has a minimum bending
radius of 30 in. the reason for this is the aluminum shield will
break. 220.127.116.11 Coaxial Cable Part Numbers: The part # for the .500
Coaxial Cable installed inside the building from floor to floor is

either ceiling or table type mounts. In each case the conduit must
be connected to the front of the classroom or control area.
4.3 HIGH TECH CLASSROOMS
- 4.3.1 GENERAL
Instructional Technology shall provide the specifications for the
conduit installation and outlet(s) required for a room designated
as a High Tech Classroom.
A High Tech Classroom outlet
will provide for the connection of voice, data, video, audio and
- 4.3.2 LABELING
Each end of all cables (UTP,
coax, fiber, audio, etc.) and all pairs will be labeled at their
- 4.3.3 CONDUIT / OUTLET BOXES
In general, the
necessary conduit shall be provided as follows:
The location and
necessity of each will be determined during final design, based on
the intended function of the room. The room will always have one
primary High Tech Classroom outlet.
