Designed for applications requiring either an extra flexible mic cable or one of reduced overall size. This cable uses the standard HST cores and screen construction, and has the same extra-flexible soft PVC with semi-matt finish, but with a reduced overall diameter of 5.0mm. This size of cable is often known as “patch” cable, and is ideally suited for equipment interconnection. It is not, however, recommended for heavy-duty applications – HST, which has a thicker jacket and therefore offers more physical protection to the cores, should be used in these cases.

Technical Specification:
Construction: Two conductors, each 30 strands of 0.10mm plain copper wire for flexibility, twisted with short lay length (30mm) for better balance and noise rejection. Cotton fillers used both to reduce microphony and to give a more regular central core profile to prevent movement of screen. Precision wound helical formation screen, 72 strands of 0.10mm plain copper wire. Overall jacket is extra flexible soft PVC, which has excellent handling characteristics and remains flexible at low temperatures, together with a serviceable “semi-matt” surface finish
Conductors: 30/0.10mm (0.235mm²) plain copper wire
Insulation: PVC, radial thickness 0.38mm, OD 1.4mm, Red and Black
Twisting and lay: 2 ×0.25mm² plus 2 ×cotton fillers, 30mm lay length
Screen: 72/0.1mm helically wound plain copper wire, 96% optical coverage
