May 19, 2009--Liberty Wire 's RGB5C-23-CMP plenum cable is designed for high performance RGBHV applications. It is constructed for long runs with high-resolution computer signals, and for long runs of HDMI and DVI signals when used with the company's DL-HDCX DigitaLinx HDMI over RGB Cable extender.

Recent changes in the certification process by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) prompted Liberty to develop the new cable, which is UL-listed for use in plenum air spaces in the U.S. and Canada. Plenum cable is cable certified by building codes for use in the plenum spaces of buildings, the spaces that can facilitate air circulation for heating and cooling systems, such as over a dropped ceiling or under a raised floor.

For computer signals, the cable offers less attenuation than industry-standard 26 AWG mini hi-res cables, which means it can run 50 to 100 percent longer without electronic boosters. For HDMI and DVI signals, it performs at lengths up to 300 feet at 1080p/60mhz resolution when used with Liberty's DL-HDCX extender. Liberty says the cable is swept to 4.5 GHz "for reliable performance with any analog or digital signal."

Features include five conductors, a Kynar jacket for applications up to 125° C, and RoHS compliance. The cable works with Liberty crimp connectors, and comes packaged on 500-foot spools. It is also available in a non-plenum version (RGB5C-23-CM).
