The Communications Cable and Connectivity Association (CCCA) free CableCheck app is now available for Android platform devices, in addition to the iPhone and other Apple devices. The app provides a simple to use field-screening tool and checklist to help identify and avoid non-compliant and counterfeit communications cable. According to CCCA, these cables present serious liability risks and public safety concerns. It also shows the top five points to look for in checking the fire safety compliance of UTP communications cables.

Developed in cooperation with Underwriters Laboratories (UL), it can be used by installers, inspectors and end-users of UTP communications cable as a field-screening tool to check suspicious cable and to validate UL listings for fire safety compliance with the National Electrical Code (NEC).

“Non-compliant and counterfeit communications cable continues to be a major problem,” said Bill Kloss, CCCA’s chairman and vice president of sales – Americas with OFS.

“Developing the CableCheck app to include the Android platform is another investment in CCCA’s commitment to continue to educate and help protect the structured cabling industry from non-compliant and counterfeit cables.”
