Neutrik, designer and manufacturer of the industry leading XX series XLR cable connector, showcases its EtherCon series for CAT6 cables at Winter NAMM 2008 (Hall A, Booth #6320).
The EtherCon CAT6 series offers a rugged patch cable solution, which includes a metal housing for RJ45 cable connectors that protect them against mechanical load. It is equipped with Neutrik’s chuck-type strain relief with a separate push-pull locking mechanism to avoid accidental unplugging. The cable solution is available in custom lengths and the receptacle will accept a standard RJ45 cable end in addition to the EtherCon CAT6 patch cable.
“Extended bandwidth coupled with a push-pull locking mechanism makes Neutrik’s newest EtherCon for Cat6 the new must-have for live stage and studio productions,” says Jim Cowan, president of Neutrik USA. “Introducing the EtherCon for Cat6 cable enables us to stay at the forefront of this growing bandwidth trend.”The EtherCon system was developed to meet the ever increasing requirements of data volume, transfer rate and bandwidth. It is perfectly suitable for Ethernet applications, especially in harsh, demanding environments such as live stage production, DMX lighting, outdoor Internet access and industrial Ethernet.
