NEW YORK, NY â€• Wireworks, the leading innovator of audio/video cabling systems and custom panels, is debuting its new MCAT5 first-ever multipin-based, multi-channel CAT5e Network Cabling at AES 2009 (Booth 819).
MCAT5 simplifies network cabling by eliminating individual cable runs; reducing the wear and tear on equipment by utilizing a sturdy multipin connector instead of the standard RJ45 connector, creating a rugged point-to-point secure connection. Additional benefits of MCAT5 include ease of use, simplified cable identification and improved network durability.
MCAT5 tails are configured to support six channels of 10/100/1000BASE-T signals and equipment requiring four pairs per RJ45. Tails are also available to support 12 channels of 10/100BASE-T utilizing cable sharing technology.
“Wireworks introduced multipin, multi-channel audio cables to replace individual mic cable runs which revolutionized analog audio cabling,” says Gerald Krulewicz, president of Wireworks. “Now, MCAT5 replaces multiple network cable runs in a single durable cabling solution. Wireworks remains at the forefront of innovation providing products that meet the demands of the ever changing audio industry.”
Constructed of heavy-duty CAT5e rated cable with an extra-tough double jacketed shielded cable design, MCAT5 is ideal for the rigors of live production, touring, studio and stage. With a small overall diameter of only 0.57 in., yet only weighing 14 lbs. per 100 ft., MCAT5 is easy to work with and transport. Cable sections are available in lengths up to 250 ft.
Tails are color-coded for easy identification and terminated with either RJ45 or etherCON connectors. Rack mounted MCAT5 fanouts can be permanently attached to equipment eliminating wear and tear, transferring the strain from equipment RJ45 connectors to Wireworks heavy-duty, proven road-worthy G-Block Multipin Connector.
Wireworks G-Block rectangular connector design eliminates cross-threading, locking ring damage as well as the possibility of going “out-of-round” – problems typically found in circular connectors. G-Blocks precision formed brass contacts are resilient to breakage and bending. Gold-plated contacts ensure superb signal transmission.
Now celebrating its 35th Anniversary, Wireworks Corporation is the pioneer in professional audio/video cabling products. Headquartered in Hillside, NJ, Wireworks has established cabling standards that are still in use today. Wireworks manufactured the very first multi-channel audio cables and the first multi-pin interconnect system. The company also introduced the first colored microphone cables, the first mixed audio/video multi-pin interconnect system, and the first and only multi-pin connector system that can accommodate audio, video, data, and control signals in a simple, easy-to-use connector.
From Broadway to broadcast, theatres, auditoriums, arenas, corporate boardrooms, operating rooms and houses of worship installations, Wireworks remains the leader in audio/video cabling systems, microphone splitters and interface panels, continuing to set standards through its inventive products.
