The Purpose of the ANSI/TIA-1005-A Standard Telecommunications Infrastructure for Industrial Premises
The ANSI/TIA-1005-A standard aids the planning and installation of telecommunications cabling infrastructure within and between industrial buildings. In contrast to the ANSI/TIA-568-C series of wiring standards, which addresses commercial buildings, the central concept of this standard is the potential exposure to hostile environments in the industrial space. A prime design principle of this document is the special cabling system requirements for industrial operations.
- This standard is useful for those responsible for designing a telecommunications infrastructure to meet the requirements of an industrial environment.
- A working knowledge of this standard may prove beneficial in understanding problems associated with the unique aspects of industrial environments and applications.
