    Expensive shipping. You used to ship for $3 previously. Clearly making a profit of postage costs. So no deal.

      Thankyou for pointing out we are making a profit on shipping which is incorrect. so you believe we should not pay wages to our people or pay for packaging? $10 is subsidised freight so we can account for bulk movement of freight. most of the time when someone runs a promotion like this they are making a loss not a profit. now if someone buys 3kg worth of cables do you think you can get 3kg sent anywhere around the country for $10? im sure buying from illegal overseas sellers and non compliant products from ebay and amazon might be a better deal for you if your that worried about it.

      Yes we previously did a $3.00 shipping deal when Auspost gave us a bulk mail deal. problem is some certain CEO who got shafted fired the entire IT department and offshored the entire core system costing millions of dollars in losses and daily downtime that Australia post can no longer afford to do bulk deals like that anymore.

        Are you saying Christine Holgate was a good CEO or did she deserve to be fired? Do you have something against female CEOs??

    any cat8 deal?

    •  

      Category 8 will be coming online at the end of the year as there are currently only 3 registered brands in the country with approvals for it. It is still a very expensive venture at this point in time.

    Hi are these cables strong enough for BDSM?? Asking for a friend, it's def not to tie up me missus. Thanks

      Well he does say several times it meets Australian standards… So I'd assume they would be stronger than those imported from overseas. Perhaps the OP could shed more light about this though?

        Actually very good point!

        The majority of cabling products you see on the market and sold in most computer stores etc are all imported. Usually companies like ours do not sell direct through those chains because we like to keep it separate from the rest.

        In Australia, we have legislated standards which force us to use real materials and products. we have to use things like 100 percent pure copper and not recycled copper etc. the PVC or low smoke zero halogen contents of the sheathing has to comply to Australian standards. so our products have no choice but to be the best that we can achieve because there a bunch of people called inspectors who love to come and check us at random times.

        Now on imports that doesn't really happen. and most overseas cables many things can be hidden like the dreaded copper clad aluminium. See you cannot get anything cheaper out of china on a like for like basis. why? because all major materials are traded on the stock markets. so we have international pricing on things like copper and rubbers etc.

        The most common problems with imported leads is the conductor. which is many cases on imported leads is Copper Clad Aluminium. which is illegal to use in Australia but since most people are not aware. CCA leads can be pretty much found anywhere including leader computers who is a major seller of CCA leads. go figure. in fact a quick search on google shows several retailer outlets selling them including dick smith.

        Now countries like china love to be price competitive right? but if material prices are not changing what do they do? they change the material compositions. a good majority of overseas leads contain recycled copper or what we call dirty copper. to the average user it means no difference because they plug it in and get a response of something working.

        Common things found in imported leads:
        gold contacts on connectors with less than 10 microns of gold. minimum standard is 30 microns whilst the recommended standard to pass on testers is 50 microns.
        PVC sheathing which is very loose feeling, because they use recycled pvc it cannot extrude down further tightly on the cable.
        The majoirty of 8P8C pliugs sold on marketplaces like ebay etc are all 1-3 microns of gold which are poor performing

        now when you go and pickup a retail packaged cable you will see claims of "fluke tested" etc claiming that their cables are certified etc and have you ever tried asking for a specific test report on that cable? we can actually produce that because by law we have to.

        Most imported products are considered smoke and mirrors. designed to confuse the customer with things like CE or FCC which are not recognised here. or tthe best ones are UL tested which stands for united laboratories, again worthless. ISO9001 certified which is a management system and not a cabling standard. or better yet gold shielding which has no performance advantages at all considering it is a grounding shield and has nothing to do with the primary signal.

        There are many smoke and mirrors techniques used in the cabling industry. we just prefer to cut the crap and give people stuff that is backed by legislated requirements and gives you the piece of mind that if it craps itself we will back you. very few people in this industry actually support their own products. Our standard warranty is 10 years. Very few people actually give that to anyone at all. most importers cringe at warranties and will muck you around to the end of the earth because they know once they hit that 12 month mark they don't have to worry about you anymore.

      Well funny you should mention it! the 50 Micron Gold contacts on the cables are versatile in use and could leave quiet the impression on someone!

      Unfortunately we cannot condone DIY cabling work as it voids insurances and is not legal to support the undertaking of DIY cabling. If you wish to read up on the standards you can refer to Communications Alliance S009 for structured cabling & the Telecommunications Act.

      •  

        as it voids insurances

        No it doesn't.

        Also, any non-registered cabler can make patch cables, but not connect them to any structural cabling at all.

        •  

          incorrect. S008 requires them to be made by a licensed manufacturer. a registered cabler is set by S009 not S008. And approvals must be gained by a manufacturer from an approved testing laboratory. The telecommunications act prohibits anyone including licensed cablers from manufacturing as there is a different set of standards for it. Yes it does void insurances. I have given testimony in many of court cases into the validity of products. Registered cablers are only licensed to terminate insitu and can only make patch leads if they are completing a part of a data circuit, if that lead is then removed from the circuit it is no longer compliant and can not be re-sold. they cannot manufacture for individual resale as cablers are not licensed to do so.

          Cablers are regulated by s009 wiring rules and the telecommunications act
          Manufacturers are regulated by S008 and the telecommunications act.
          Manufacturers also have to comply with various other acts and have other certificates and licensing such as process and manufacturing certificates and you must be a recognised person (engineer etc) for approvals processes.

          You see how we have that RCM mark or you might see Nxxxx (grandfathered) on products. that is the certification mark granted to manufacturers when they gain the approvals for what they make. a registered cabler or private person cannot just go and get that without qualification of the standards. so it would cost a cabler well in excess of 100k just to get started.

            @execab:

            requires them to be made by a licensed manufacturer

            Nope, only if you are 'manufacturing' them… This includes cablers.

            If you make them for yourself, it is fine…

            •  

              @jv: there are no legal loop holes to get around if you read the telecommunications act and building standards you will find it is impossible. look up the definition of manufacturing. it does not hold any relation to financial gain. only to the assembly of an item or materials to create something else. even AS3000 for electrical standards prohibits anyone from connecting any uncertified device or entity to the electrical grid. wether it be directly or indirectly. The regs have been around for over 30 years and have not changed. and many importers are currently worried because the federal government is going to be cancelling mutual recognition agreements with overseas laboratories so the importers cannot get cheap certs done anymore in our fight with china. so goods will skyrocket in price. in fact we are on the threshold of now being cheaper to deal with instead of china as china has rejected our copper so copper will be sold at local market prices which means we get better stuff cheaper because there is no point using international market prices if there is no international market to sell to.

                that's nice to know, but I'm not a cabler or manufacturer, so it does not stop me from making my own as long as I don't connect them to anything running through a wall, roof or under the floor…
