CANFORD CAT7-F CAT 7 DATA CABLE Stranded conductor, screened - Deployable, ruggedised

Increasing use of network and data cables between audio and video devices on location calls for a Category 7 cable that is designed specifically for deployable use. Basic Category 7 cable is a relatively inflexible installation cable, and even the slightly more flexible patchcord type still has very poor handling characteristics in deployed (as opposed to patching) applications. This Category 7 cable has been designed specifically for the professional audio and video user, and is intended to handle like a typical microphone cable. It has recently been approved by Waves Audio for use with their Waves Audio Soundgrid systems. It has an extra-flexible individually screened 4 pair core structure with an overall braid screen that maintains Category 7 performance, then a rugged polyurethane outer jacket, to give superb flexibility and handling characteristics.

It is suitable for use with both standard RJ45 connectors (round entry version), the Neutrik Ethercon and most other ruggedised RJ45 designs, or any other connector with a suitably sized entry gland. The cable is also suitable for DMX512 applications.

The Category 7 standard provides performance up to 1000MHz, and is suitable for Gigabit Ethernet, 1000Base-T and other high speed applications, as well as analogue and digital audio. Category 7 defines more stringent specifications than those applicable to Category 6/6A, particularly in crosstalk between pairs.
