Applications
 
  • Microphone level signals in electrically harsh environments; particularly in outside broadcasts and the film industry
  • 8 channel variant sized to suit the broadcast standard Mil 26 pole connector
  • 16 channel variant sized to suit the VDM 54 pole connector
 
Application notes
 
  • Polyurethane outer jacket offers excellent resistance to abrasion, repeated flexing, water ingress and oils, fats and petroleum
  • Precise cable geometry and starquad construction for excellent rejection of radio frequency and electromagnetic interference (RFI and EMI)
  • BBC standard colour coding - blue & red (+ve phase) with green & white (-ve phase) opposing; pairs should be terminated as shown
  • Ultra pure oxygen free copper for outstanding sonic integrity
