This 50 metre cable is manufactured by KLARK TEKNIK and consists of Neutrik etherFLEX cable with etherCON connectors on a Schill cable drum. Designed for touring applications the cable drum is made to be both durable and lightweight. It has an auxiliary winder and an integrated adjustable break. The cable has been tested for both AES50 and EtherSound audio networking protocols and will also work for more general Ethernet remote control applications.
The EtherFLEX ruggedized cable structure includes 4 pairs of stranded wire AWG 26 so it is able to withstand repeated flexing and stress far better than solid wires. Conductive foil and additional braided shielding surround the wires for consistently high rejection ratios against EMI RF and ESD. Its inner FRNC jacket is separated from the rugged outer FLEX PUR jacket by a thin layer of talc powder for improved cable handling properties.
The NCAT5E-50M is not only flexible in terms of its superior mechanical properties—it also can be deployed in a wide variety of audio environments. If a single 50 m run is insufficient you can extend two cables to 100 m using the optional Neutrik NE8FF connector. Simply unwind the cable from the drum. If you need AES50 connections exceeding the typical 100 metre limit of CAT5 Ethernet KLARK TEKNIK’s DN9610 Extenders or DN9620 Repeaters provide a very cost effective solution.
Schill cable drums are made from a nearly unbreakable synthetic rubber material that is as strong and resilient as steel but more durable and much lighter in weight. The material can withstand temperatures from -20°C to +70°C and is resistant to chemicals oils and gasoline. The integrated adjustable break stops any inadvertent drum rotation. A two-meter cable length is wound on the auxiliary spool for connecting the drum to the mixing console. Rubber caps on both etherCON connectors cover terminals during setup and transport and hook-and-loop fasteners secure cable ends during transportation.
