SMPTE 311M 16mm Double Jacketed Camera Cable



16mm Double Jacketed Design - extra-durable and terminates with standard 9.2mm connectors

Extra-Flexible & Abrasion Resistant - suitable for use in studio or remote environments

Low-Loss 9u Single-Mode Fiber- high-bandwidth, low-loss type fiber for high data rates

Directional Arrow on Jacket- designates plug end for proper termination and installation

SMPTE 311M-2009 Compliant - meets or exceeds specifications in latest SMPTE revision

High Tensile Strength Tight Buffer - tripple the tensile strength for added durability

For Remote, ENG and Studio Use - durable and flexible design for multiple applications

Clark Wire & Cable’s HFCDJ is a precision engineered SMPTE 311M cable designed for use in portable, studio or hostile environment applications. With two single-mode fibers for multiplexed video, audio and data, the HFCDJ delivers exceptionally low-loss for HD camera to CCU interconnects. All copper conductors are insulated with a polyethylene dielectric for exceptional heat and current leakage resistance. For added durability, the two single-mode fiber elements are coated with a high tensile strength CPE tight buffer that achieves three times the tensile strength as compared to typical PVC tight buffer compounds. The outer jacket is constructed from two layers. The inner jacket is the standard 9.2mm diameter size that can be terminated with Lemo SMPTE 304M connectors. The outer jacket is an oversized 16mm diameter PU jacket that provides additional durability and can be stripped away separately from the inner 9.2mm jacket.
