Secure network ports with new lockable GigaTrue and GigaBase Cat-6A/6/5e patch cables from Black Box. These cables give you the ability to lock down critical network ports — when you need to — without buying new patch cords. Use these high-performance cables for everyday network connections. Then when you need to secure network ports, you can quickly by slipping an optional Locking Pin into the patented LockPORT boot. Once locked, the cable can only be released with the Removal Key (sold separately). Use these cables to protect mission-critical network ports and to prevent accidental disconnects, particularly in industrial applications.
BTX Technologies’ Mogami Puroflex I series provides Neglex oxygen-free copper conductors, super-flexible rubber-like jacketing, and precision molding with heavy-duty strain relief. These 3.5mm-type cables come in 2ft., 4ft., 6ft., 10ft., and 20ft. lengths. BTX also produces HellermannTyton Cat-6A shielded patch cords that feature foil shielding to ensure signal integrity and a strain-relief boot that helps prevent tangling and excessive bending. They incorporate a low-profile shielded plug suitable for high-density applications with an integral strain relief boot to minimize force on the terminations and to manage the bend radius of the cable.
C2G’s High Speed HDMI to HDMI Micro Cable with Ethernet is designed to connect a smartphone, tablet, or other mobile device to an HD display for home theater or desktop applications. The Ethernet capabilities of the cable allow a user to connect multiple Ethernet-enabled HDMI devices through a single Ethernet connection. It’s latest HDMI features include 4K@50/60, (2160p), 3D video, deep color, Dolby True HD, DTS-HD Master Audio, and up to 32 audio channels. It also offers up to 1536kHz audio sample frequency, simultaneous delivery of dual video streams to multiple users on the same screen, simultaneous delivery of multi-stream audio to multiple users (up to four), support for the wide-angle theatrical 21:9 video aspect ratio, dynamic synchronization of video and audio streams, and CEC extensions for control of consumer electronics devices through a single control point. This high-bandwidth cable is tested to perform at industry standards and is backed by a lifetime warranty.
Canare’s Star Quad is designed for use with microphones but is also appropriate for all line-level signals. The four-conductor arrangement cancels electromagnetically induced noise from fluorescent lighting ballasts and AC power transformers. Also, handling noise is prevented by use of cotton filler material. Canare Star Quad cable is very flexible because of a special compound PVC outer jacket that remains pliant at extremely low temperatures.
Clark Wire & Cable’s quad microphone cable features a double-balanced, four-conductor design for RF/EMI noise rejection. MINK4 features finely stranded 24AWG (41 strands of 40AWG) copper conductors and a drain wire, in addition to the 95-percent corrosion-resistant braid. It uses Clark’s proprietary MINK matte PVC jacket compound that is ultra-flexible and abrasion resistant. Clark also features Cat-5e and Cat-6 cables in various ratings (riser, plenum, direct burial, and tactical).
DVIGear’s High Resolution Series of DVI and HDMI cables are capable of supporting all DVI and HDMI resolutions with bit rates up to 2.25Gbps and cable lengths of up to 10 meters (33ft.). The Super High Resolution (SHR) series cables are intended for long-range transport of high-resolution DVI and HDMI digital signals, and are engineered for superior performance and durability. They support all DVI and HDMI resolutions with bit rates up to 2.25Gbps at cable length of up to 60 meters (200ft.). DVIGear’s Super High Resolution (SHRD) and High Resolution (HRD) DVI cables provide signal fidelity over a wide range of cable lengths up to 60 meters (200ft.). These cables support both single-link and dual-link DVI signal formats, and are rated for in-wall applications.
