Clark Wire & Cable™, is introducing an improved version of its industry standard 700 series multi-pair audio cables. Built for high-density audio applications, the 700 series comes in configurations from four to twenty-four balanced audio pairs within a single master jacketed cable. New to the 700 series is an updated jacket and core construction that improves the flexibility and elevates the UL rating to riser type CMR.
Designed to be an easy-to-terminate cable that is both durable and flexible for studio, staging and permanent installation applications, the foundation of the 700 series remains unchanged. The 700 series pair construction still features 22AWG tinned copper conductors that are insulated with a low-shrink back, low-loss polypropylene dielectric. To achieve low RF/EMI noise and exceptional common-mode rejection, each pair is precision twisted and shielded with a bonded foil shield and a tinned copper drain wire. For quick identification each single-pair element has a color coded and alpha-numerically printed jacket that makes channel identification easy, even in low-light environments.
New to the 700 series is an improved TPE jacket compound that delivers exceptional flexibility and abrasion resistance while achieving a UL listing for permanent installation applications. This dual purpose jacket allows the same 700 series cable to be used in harsh environments where flexibility and durability are critical as well as in permanent installation environments that require a CMR listed cable.
“Improving the flexibility and UL listing of our industry standard 700 series snake cables allows them to now be used in a greater range of applications,” stated Scott Fehl, Product Marketing Manager for Clark Wire & Cable. “Known and relied upon by staging, recording and broadcast professionals for over 20 years, our 700 series still maintains all of the specifications that our users have depended upon – but with a significantly improved jacket compound and core construction that improves flexibility and allows for installation in permanent environments such as walls, raceways and conduit.”
