General Cable launches Gepco stadium cables

New line of stadium cables allows for simplified installation of one cable across direct burial and riser applications.

General Cable (NYSE: BGC) has launched its Gepco brand stadium cables at the 2014 NAB Show (April 7-10). The new line of stadium cables allow for simplified installation of one cable across direct burial and riser applications.

The company contends that typical indoor and outdoor applications require the installer to use different cables and splice the two together, requiring more time, while also making the installation vulnerable to signal loss or errors. With its Gepco stadium cables, General Cable says that installers can run a single cable from the outside direct burial environments directly into buildings for riser applications, with no splicing necessary.

The Gepco stadium cables feature two-ply water-blocking tape and water-swellable fillers (audio only) for advanced water protection in direct burial installations while also retaining a CMR rating. Available in single-pair audio (61801SC), high-definition RG 11 coax (VHD1100SC) and RG 11 triax (VT61811SC), all Gepco brand stadium cables are suitable for extended-distance runs.

“The Gepco brand stadium cables provide solid performance across two very different applications,” said Brian Lamar, product manager for General Cable Communications Products. “Gepco and General Cable are pleased to provide a solution that makes installation for stadiums and other outdoor venues quicker and easier.”
