July 1, 2008 -- Belden (www.belden.com) has announced the availability of its Brilliance Plenum Mini Digital Coax cable (Part # 1855P), a plenum version of the company's 1855A non-plenum, sub-miniature 59/U digital coax cable.
Billed as the first plenum mini digital coax in the industry, Belden says the 1855P cable is designed and engineered to deliver the same outstanding digital video signal transmission performance and reliability as the 1855A.
Both versions of the cables are intended for connection of high definition (HD), standard definition (SDI) and digital audio equipment in professional and commercial applications, for applications including broadcast and cable TV stations, sports stadiums and arenas, convention centers, and other large facilities requiring high-quality digital video. Both cables are 100 percent sweep tested from 5 MHz to 4.5 GHz, says the company.
Rated NEC/CEC CMP, the new 1855P Plenum Mini Digital Coax cables feature a high velocity foam FEP Teflon dielectric, foil plus braid shield, and a flexible Flamarrest PVC jacket, which is available in ten different colors. The cable is designed to the same diameter as 1855A, so installers can use the same type of connector, eliminating the need for different tooling and connectors and reducing assembly time and cost.
