Wire RATH Stations

RATH® Communication recommends the use of shielded 2-pair twisted wire per call box. The use of CAT-6 as illustrated below has been successfully utilized in numerous installations when the wires were installed in continuous EMT conduit which serves as an overall shield to the entire communication system. If you do not use a continuous metal raceway then you must use a shielded 2-pair twisted per-call box per manufactures guidelines.

In locations known to or suspected of having very strong radio broadcast signals present, it is HIGHLY recommended to use shielded CAT6 w/drain and a continuous metal raceway.  This will protect the signal from RFI  in those transitional sections between the raceway and termination. During trim, maintain the shield to within 1 inch of the terminal connections and skip the use of an RG-11 terminal block.
