September 8, 2008―RapcoHorizon Company's 2EZ SVGA cable is the second generation of the EZ Coax cable developed by sister corporation Major Custom Cable, and is built to eliminate the need for soldering connectors in the field.

This coax cable can be routed through walls, conduits, and ceilings using normal installation procedures, without concern over connector damage. It is equipped with a CMP jacket for installs involving plenum environments and features an XLR designed to provide improved strain relief at 360 degrees to resist damage with a 50-pound pull force (compared to the original EZ-Pull din connecter, which was capable of a 15-pound pull force).

The 2EZ is also is built to withstand heaving through 3/4-inch conduit that includes sweep 90 degree bends, and is rated at SVGA at 200 ft., XGA at 150 ft., and XSGA at 100 ft. resolution. High resolutions are available at 50 ft. The 2EZ cables can be ordered to length, and equipped with an optional pulling grip/pulling eye as well as a connector type that can be equipped with optional wall plates.

"The reason that this cable was developed was due to the need for a ruggedized solution for high resolution video cables that can save contractors time, and essentially money, in terms of labor for video systems," says Ronald Hastings, product development manager for Major Custom Cable. "While there are different manufacturers of his type of system, the 2EZ allows for a plug together and unplug solution that can adapt to any connector type, such as HD-15, BNC, RCA, S-Video, and 3.5 mm stereo combinations with a 75-ohm cabling system."
