Mexico. Belden recently published its new website, and has uploaded numerous instruments to make the installation more efficient. An example is the tables of safe distances. The user can find one dedicated to the speaker cable, with the aim of investing in the right amount of copper: neither a cable so thick that wasted investment, nor a cable so thin that too much power is lost.

This table indicates distances according to the type of horn (4 or 8 Ohm, 70v systems), how much loss the application can support (from .5dB to 3dB) and of course the cable size (from AWG 6 thickness to 24).

Another table that has aroused interest is coaxial: it indicates how far the cable will reach (from 28 to 14) depending on the type of video signal (SD, HD, 3G, UHD / 12G), both for coaxial with solid conductor ( fixed installation) as for multi-wire driver (mobile application). In this line, it is also possible to check which category cable is most recommended (CAT6, CAT6a) according to the application (data, POE, video).

Other useful tools are the "cross-reference" (which connector and tool is compatible with each coaxial) or the "conduit-fill" (how many cables of each type fit through a particular pipeline without affecting performance).

As an additional aid, Belden has released numerous quick guides to select the appropriate code according to the application: for security (access control, fire sensor, paging / alarms), for control and automation (cables for Lutron, AMX, Crestron systems), for microphones (rough use, star-quad, caliber), one for coaxial UHD and another for coaxial 50 Ohmnios, for HDMI assemblies, etc.

Finally, Belden has opened its University online to all users (https://www.belden.com/resources/training/enterprise-av-training), where they can take specific courses and also obtain AVIXA credits.
