TourCat Series Category 5E cable Back
 

Widely expanded for this product release, the Tourcat Range now has 3 types of single Cat 5E cable and 2 multicore versions. Ethernet and Ethernet based protocols continue to proliferate in the professional and domestic audio visual market and the choice of products in the Tourcat Range now supports most applications.

The original Van Damme Tourcat is a flexible patch cable that has the feel and flexibility of Van Damme Microphone Cable.

Van Damme U/UTP Tactical Cat 5E is a rugged solid conductor unscreened cable with polyethylene cross member for touring use – ideal for longer runs.

Van Damme SF/UTP Tactical Cat 5E is a foil & braid screened version of the U/UTP Tourcat for long runs in electrically noisy environments.

In addition there are 2 multicore versions – one comprising 4 x Van Damme U/UTP Tourcat, and one with 2 x Van Damme U/UTP Tourcat cables and 4 AES/EBU screened pairs.

Applications
 
Van Damme Tourcat Flexible
  • Patch cords and link cables for Ethernet and Ethernet based protocols.
  • Flexible and robust so ideal for touring and dynamic use.
  • Ideal for use with the Neutrik Ethercon.

Van Damme Tourcat U/UTP solid conductor
  • Long runs of Ethernet based Digital Audio signals.
  • Lower skew than standard Cat 5E offers improved performance with video and data .baluns and active Cat X interfaces.
  • Ideal for use with the Neutrik Ethercon.

Van Damme Tourcat SF/UTP solid conductor
  • Foil and braid screened version of Tourcat U/UTP for electrically noisy environments.
  • Screening also offers greater mechanical strength.
  • Ideal for use with the Neutrik Ethercon.

Van Damme Tourcat 4 way U/UTP multicore                            
  • Ideal for use with cat 5E based digital consoles.
  • 4 individual Cat 5E cables for greater flexibility – run video or digital audio with control data in the same multicore.

Van Damme Tourcat 2 x U/UTP 4 x AES/Analogue pair multicore
  • One multicore solution for digital audio consoles – main digital audio multicore, redundancy, left and right returns and comms all in one cable.
  • Also ideal for balun or Cat X interface applications with AES/Analogue pairs for additional control, DMX or audio signals.
 
Application notes
 
    Van Damme Tourcat Flexible
  • Meets  the requirements of Category 5E TIA/EIA-568-B.2-2001.
  • Recommended maximum distance for 100MBits/s data rate is 75 metres; longer runs are possible but not guaranteed.

Van Damme Tourcat U/UTP solid conductor
  • Exceeds  the requirements of Category 5E TIA/EIA-568-B.2-2001.

Van Damme Tourcat Multicores
  • Multicores use the Van Damme Tourcat U/UTP cables.
  • Audio pairs in 268-460-402 suitable for AES/EBU digital or balanced analogue audio.
  • Cat 5E cable to cable crosstalk results in slightly reduced performance.
  • Cat 5E Cables still exceed the requirements of Category 5E TIA/EIA-568-B.2-2001.
