What Is A Feeder Cable Clamp?
A feeder cable clamp is a fixing tool used to bind RF feeder cables, usually in the construction of cellular tower. It mainly comprises of a metal clamp and a rubber saddle.
What Is A Cable Cleat?
Similar to feeder cable clamp, a cable cleat is also a fixing tool, only have different application range. Cable cleats are used to fix power line in various circumstances. The structure of cable cleats is usually simpler than feeder cable clamp. It can be made with a single piece of metal, plastic, or rubber.
What Are The Differences Between Feeder Cable Clamp And Cable Cleat?
Structural difference: Feeder cable clamp is specially designed to bind RF feeder cables. Most feeder cable clamps have a rubber saddle and a metal clamp, and have similar shapes. The fixation requirement for power line is less strict, and cable cleat can have various form and shapes.
Application difference: Feeder cable clamp is a dedicated fixing device used in telecom field, while cable cleat can be used in telecom as well as many other industries like power sector and military.
Can Feeder Cable Clamp Fix Power Line?
Not necessarily. We usually do not use feeder cable clamp to fix power line, because power lines are usually much thicker than RF feeder cable. However, some DC power lines are comparably thin and are used together with feeder cables, like in the RRU. There is a feeder clamp called combined feeder clamp that is specially designed for this situation. A combined feeder clamp can fix power line and feeder cable at the same time.
Can Cable Cleat Fix RF Feeder Cable?
No. Unlike power line, most of the feeder cables are quite rigid (Apart from 1/2'' RF feeder cable) and have a very limited bending radius. A simple cable cleat cannot provide enough support for the RF Feeder Cable. If you use cable cleats to fix RF feeder cable, you are very likely putting your RF feeder cable in the risks of malfunctioning.
