The CTS2504HDX adds to Gepco’s brand of CT504HD Series of heavy-duty tactical Cat-5e cables. An ideal solution for applications that require multiple or redundant channels of Cat-5e cables in remote production or staging applications, the CTS2504HDX 2-channel snake comprises two elements of Gepco’s CT504HDX heavy-duty tactical Cat-5e cable under an overall rugged TPE jacket. While the inner jacket maintains the proper physical spacing between pairs to achieve ISO/IEC or TIA/EIA Cat-5e specifications, the durable TPE outer jacket protects the cable from physical damage or abuse.
In addition to the new CTS2504HDX, the CT504HD series of heavy-duty Cat-5e cables includes three other types. The original CT504HD has 24 AWG stranded conductors for exceptional flexibility, while the CT504HDX features 24 AWG solid conductors for lower attenuation that allows for the full, recommended TIA distances for Cat-5e network cable. With the same basic construction as the new CTS2504HDX, the CTS4504HDX is a 4-channel snake comprising four elements of CT504HDX under an overall rugged TPE jacket.
Heavy-duty tactical Cat-5e assemblies provide a pre-terminated cabling solution for hostile environments. The CT504HD, CT504HDX and each element of the CTS2504HDX and CTS4504HDX can be terminated with either standard Cat-5 RJ45 connectors or ruggedized Neutrik etherCON connectors.
The new Gepco Brand RunONE powered speaker cables combine audio and power, along with optional data, under one durable yet flexible jacket. RunONE allows the user to run just one cable in place of multiple cables.
Each RunONE cable combines one channel of power with two, eight or 12 channels of 110-ohm balanced audio for line-level, mic level or digital AES audio signals, and can be used with self-powered speakers or in DMX lighting control. Additional configurations include two channels of Cat-5e cable that can be used for data drops in remote power and audio applications. Snakes with optional data can also be used for digital audio transmission while running power to front of house for remote locations. Shielding around the power channels eliminates power noise from interrupting the audio/data signal, ensuring high-quality performance.
Terminated with industry-standard connectors, RunONE cables offer the option of Edison, IEC and Neutrik powerCON connectors for the power channel; 3-pin XLR, 5-pin XLR (for DMX lighting), TRS and Neutrik convertCON connectors for audio channels; and RJ45 and Neutrik etherCON connectors for optional data channels. RunONE cables are available in pre-defined and custom configurations.
