With two rows of connectors in 1U panels, each row with 16, 20, 24, 32 or 48 connectors, depending on model, these 'Ultra High Definition' Micro BNC termination panels are intended for 12G 4K ultra high definition, 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 video up to 12G.
Manufactured from a lightweight, but extremely rigid, aluminium extrusion, panels are fully-populated with up to 48 pairs of Coax Connectors 'Ultra High Definition', 12G, 75 ohm isolated Micro BNC adapters, equally spaced across the panel. Due to the high connector-density only a single lacing-bar is fitted to the rear of the panel. On the front, above and below each row of connectors, sits a designation-strip holder with snap-on cover, allowing paper inserts, with 7.5mm of printable height, to be inserted before or after any installation.
The Micro BNC series is used to achieve a very high density of connections on equipment rear panels and thus requires the use of the dedicated slim-line fitting and removal tool to mate and un-mate the cable connector. Splines on the tool locate in slots machined into the locking barrel (nut), providing not only a method for turning the barrel to mate or un-mate it, but a useful long-handled positioner tool to engage the connector in very confined spaces.
Ordering Note: Whilst Coax Connectors call these 'Micro BNC', they are interchangeable with the Amphenol 'HD BNC' range and NOT the Amphenol 'Micro BNC' design, due to trademark restrictions. Please don't blame Canford for the confusion!
