PRE-MANUFACTURING SERVICES

The provision of pre-manufacturing cable systems for under floor installations reduces installation time and cost. Cables are measured, labelled, terminated and tested at both ends, the looms are either put onto drums or shrink wrapped prior to delivery to site. Cables can be loomed or bundled dependent on the requirements of the manufacturer's installation procedures. All cables are totally traceable as to their length, test results, floor box and patch panel details.

Once delivered to site the cables are installed and retested to guarantee the complete integrity of the installation. On-site test results are compared with the original factory test results to ensure their traceability is maintained. All test results and as installed drawings are provided to the customer on CD-ROM.

During the project Stoneleigh can provide full batch traceability from each cable loom and project managers can use the system to produce site installation sheets to track the following stages:

• looms received on-site
• looms installed
• box end fitted
• cabinet end installed
• installation visually inspected
• installation tested
• witness tested by customer if appropriate

Using this technique a team of 5 on-site can typically install, test and handover about 1000 outlets per day. This represents a significant reduction in installation time and brings real benefits and cost savings to the customer. Pre-manufacturing requires the detailed analysis up front to determine cable lengths, outlet numbers, box numbers and cabinet layouts therefore it is only viable for structured cabling systems of over 500 outlets. To date Stoneleigh have been involved with the installations ranging from host cable swap outs from CAT5 to CAT6 up to complete CAT6 structured cabling systems in excess of 30,000 UTP is connections.
