Signal success with connectivity solutions.
Belden’s new Maxiblend Tactical fiber-optic cables are designed to stringent military standards. They feature an aramid yarn strength member and a tough, sunlight-resistant outer jacket. Combined, these attributes make the Maxiblend Tactical cables extremely resistant to abrasion, crushing, and cut-through. The tough nature of these cables allows them to be used for repeated deployment without sacrificing their high-quality and reliable performance. Maxiblend Tactical fiber-optic cables are available in single-mode and multimode construction with up to 12 fibers and a variety of special options including glass type, fiber count, and jacket color and material.
Belden’s new 3600 series preterminated green cabling system will offer integrators substantial installation and cost savings. The 3600 series is standardized with six cable bundles of preterminated RJ-45 cable assemblies. Assemblies are available in 1ft. increments from 6ft. to 50ft., and in 5ft. increments from 55ft. to 295ft. Each is also labeled with a unique serial number and bar code for easy asset management. Since all components are factory tested, there is no need for expensive and time-consuming testing and troubleshooting. The plug-and-play installation of this green system allows reusability and results in lower cost and less waste.
The TruLink VGA with Audio Over Cat-5 Extender from Cables To Go uses a single Cat-5e unshielded twisted-pair cable to transmit both VGA and 3.5mm audio signals up to 1000ft. It is ideal for applications where a VGA display must be located farther than 100ft. from the source such as retail outlets, churches, classrooms, and boardrooms. Organizations can use their existing UTP infrastructure and avoid expensive cable runs.
The RapidRun Digital modular cabling system supports multiple signals over a single cable. Cable terminals known as break-away flying leads and break-away wall plates ensure flexible, efficient, and high-quality connections for all types of equipment. A single cable in a length up to 100ft. can be easily pulled through conduit or a wall with a screw on pull cap and quickly attached to the leads or the wall plate. Equipment upgrades requiring cabling changes are greatly simplified by the ability to switch out the cable terminal from DVI to HDMI, or vice versa. The flexibility of the system saves installation time, accommodates last-minute changes, and reduces the likelihood of faulty terminations.
Clark Wire & Cable’s FocusGuide products are designed for extended life operation in harsh or uncontrolled environments. The lineup offers indoor, outdoor, tactical, multimode, single-mode, or any other combination of cable options. Plugs, flange-mount receptacles, and in-line receptacles are offered in aluminum, brass, and stainless-steel construction with a choice of electroless nickel or anodized aluminum finish. Options of seven, 17, or 33 contactseither copper or fiberare available, allowing custom connectors and applications to be easily created.
DVI Gear’s DVI-7315 fiber-optic extender is designed to route high-resolution DVI signals up to 500 meters. It consists of a high-speed optical transmitter module that converts the DVI signal into light pulses for transmission over a single strand of multimode fiber and an optical receiver that converts the light pulses back to a DVI signal for display. A programmable memory chip provides support for EDID information without the need for a copper cable. HDTV resolutions up to 1080p and PC resolutions up to 1920x1200 are supported. The DVI-7315 is the ideal solution for critical display applications demanding flawless DVI signal quality over extremely long cable runs.
The DVI-7510a Active Connect HDMI coax extender uses coaxial cables to route HDMI signals at distances up to 100 meters. The DVI-7510a is HDMI 1.3-compliant and HDCP 1.4-compliant. It supports resolutions up to 1080p, 1920x1200, and 2048x1080; 8-bit, 10-bit, 12-bit, and 16-bit deep color modes are all supported. Four coaxial cables are used for red, green, blue, and clock channels, and an optional fifth coaxial cable may be used for power transmission to the receiver. The use of coaxial cables makes the DVI-7510a an ideal solution for a retrofit using existing coaxial cable or in new installation where coaxial cables can be pulled and terminated on the job site.
