One run cable technical specs
I have a very specific technical question related to a form of cable known as “one run”. It is often used as the cable that goes to a C-band dish. It contains one but sometimes two RG 6 cables and a number of other conductors to drive the motor and in some cases the relay to switch between C and Ku. In older set ups it might have been used to switch LNB polarities. What I specifically would like to know is what gauge and type of wire was used to drive the motor and how many conductors? If secondary wires are used to go to the dish what gauge and type of wire was used?
The reason for the question is I need to replicate “One Run” and stuff all of the required cables and conductors into a 3/4 inch conduit. Since this will be a new install I don’t have any old cables for comparison.
