Developed for use with our exclusive range of microMUSA video patch panels, these microMUSA U-links are intended for 12G 4K ultra high definition (2160P60), 3G and 1.5G high definition, standard definition and analogue video applications. The performance exceeds the requirements of SMPTE ST 2082-1 making them suitable for composite and component video, 270 Mb/s SDI, uncompressed 1080i or 1080p HD-SDI video and 4K UHD (2160P60) video up to 12GHz.
These U-links are manufactured to the new microMUSA specification which not only perform beyond the required 4K standard, but also offer the highest possible density with a maximum of 48 patches possible in a single 1U panel. Additionally, all connectors incorporate a unique positive location feature (“detent”) that indicates when the U-link is fully mated into the panel whilst additionally providing resistance to disconnection through vibration as found in some environments such as OB vehicles. Though designed and made to the same very high standards as our industry standard 3G MUSA connectors this range is not compatible with the existing Canford 3G MUSA range.
Like the original 3G MUSA system, the microMUSA is a non-normalised system and therefore U-links or patchcords are required to make the circuit.
The U-link is constructed using a “U shaped” single piece centre contact ensuring low insertion and reflection losses and long term reliability. The U-link body is a robust zinc diecast shell with finger grips, whilst the nickel-plated legs and gold plated centre contacts allow for a smooth mating action.
Colour coding is by means of a factory fitted, non-removable plastic insert in ten different colours.
