Dual purpose digital & analogue cables launched at IBC & PLASA

D’n’A LogoA new range of audio cables optimised for both analogue and digital use was launched by Canford at IBC and PLASA. The new D’n’A cable range (Digital and Analogue) has been redesigned to provide a true 100ohm impedance making the cables perfect for digital as well as analogue signals. An impedance of 100 ohms has been proven to be an optimal impedance for AES/EBU digital audio signals as well as analogue microphone and line level signals. Many of the cables come in Low Fire Hazard (LFH) versions.

The cable range has been designed by Iain Elliott, Canford’s founder and a recognised industry expert in cabling and its design and application. Over the years he has been responsible for some of best selling cables in pro audio and broadcast.

Elliott commented “We have had clients asking for a unified design that can handle both analogue and digital signals for some time and commissioned research into the most suitable impedance for these ‘hybrid’ cable types. When you take into account how robust the AES/EBU digital audio signal actually is, we decided that 100 Ohm was the way to go. It also enables the cable size to be reduced to manageable dimensions and to maintain a lower cost of production which can be passed on to the customer.”

Cables comprising the new range include the FSM multicores from two pair right through to 32 pair versions and all come in standard and Low Fire Hazard (LFH) versions. The FSJ (Foil Screened Individually Jacketed) range of multicores cables from four pair to 24 pair, also come in the new design. The FST range, FST-F, the flexible version, FST-HD and FST-HD-LFH, the Heavy Duty versions and FST-M the miniature versions are all part of the D’n’A range too along with the KST and KST-M cables.

Full details of all the cables available in the D’n’A range are published here and they are all in stock and available to purchase now.
