The What: General Cable has debuted the Gepco Brand HDC920P Plenum Hybrid Fiber Camera Cable at the 2014 NAB Show (Booth #C7708) April 7-10, 2014.
For permanent installation in plenum air spaces, the new HDC920P fiber optic and copper conductor hybrid fiber cable for SMPTE 311 applications features a flexible, white UL rated PVC jacket.
The What Else: In the hybrid 311 format, the HD video signal is transmitted over two single-mode optical fibers to ensure accurate and extended-distance data transmission. To increase the durability, Gepco uses a special nylon-based polymer with increased tensile strength for the fiber coatings, and a 16 AWG steel strength member is cabled at the center of the cable core. All copper elements feature heat-resistant PE insulation and a shielded copper braid.
The Lineup: The HDC920P joins the complete line of Gepco Brand SMPTE 311 hybrid fiber camera cables. The HDC920 comes in an extra-flexible, abrasion-resistant TPE compound that is ideal for portable, studio and outdoor broadcast applications, while the HDC920R comes in a riser rated PVC outer jacket for permanent installation. Designed for permanent underground installation, the HDC920PEF has an extra-rugged polyethylene jacket and water blocking tape wrapped around the cable core. Heavy-duty versions with a modified construction for rugged environments are also available.
The Why: “The HDC920P adds to an already robust line of Gepco Brand Hybrid Fiber Camera Cables,” said Brian Lamar, product manager, General Cable Communications Products. “We are pleased to be able to provide a complete solution for any hybrid fiber application.”
