January 12, 2007 -- The Intercon 1 (www.intercon-1.com) division of Nortech Systems, Inc. (www.nortechsys.com), a US-based supplier of analog and digital video cables and assemblies, has introduced its IEEE 1394b cable assemblies.
According to the company, the shielded cables are constructed with a Thermal Plastic Elastomer (TPE) jacket that enables them to withstand harsh environments such as oil, water, and sunlight while transmitting high-quality video images.
The high-flex cables also incorporate over-molding and thumbscrews for durability in demanding applications. The company says the thumbscrews guarantee a firm, constant connection through motion and vibration. The company says its exclusive over-mold design provides additional strain relief and extended cable life.
The IEEE 1394b standard allows data to be transferred at twice the speed of the previous 1394a, reaching rates of 800 Mbit/sec. The cables will meet or exceed IEEE 1394b standards and are RoHS compliant. They also support plug and play.
Beta (1394b to 1394b) and Bilingual (1394a to 1394b) assemblies are available to provide a direct interface between cable equipment.
