Time-saving ethernet cable solution

As a network cable solution for event technicians and rental companies, we offer our Quad-bulk cable CCAT 7A QUAD, correspondingly and appropriately combined with our CSE NN 7A QUAD-SD. 4 of our proven CCAT 7 Ethernet cables (Cat 7a) in PVC sheathing are incorporated in just one slim multicore cable.

This solution allows the space- and time-saving setup of four totally independent LAN networks or 4 separate control and media networks. 

This design features 2 NEUTRIK etherCON connectors (NE8MX6) and reeled onto a Schill sheet steel drum (2 meters of the cable on an auxiliary spool on the side of the drum).

Available lengths of the CSE NN 7A QUAD-SD: 50m, 75m

New high-speed USB 3.0 cable

When it comes to high-speed data transfer between terminal devices, laptops, external hard disks or other hardware, the Universal Serial Bus (USB) standard has become prevalent. To provide DJs, light and sound engineers and other professionals with a reliable cable for the above mentioned applications, we have added our USB CA 30 cable (Type-A to Type-C), optimized for high-speed data transmissions, to our product range.

The cable is suitable for quick-charge applications and transmits a maximum of 3A current or 15W power - 6x more than a USB 2.0 cable.The USB-C connector can be used both ways. The copper inner conductors, combined with a tinned copper braided shield, foil pair shielding and the 8b/10b line code, allow data transfer rates of up to 5 Gbit/s - 10x faster than the USB 2.0 standard.The cable is downward compatible to USB 2.0 and 1.1.

Available lengths: 0.5m; 1m, 2m, 3m

Ethernet goes PVC
Cordial extends the range of its DANTE cables with a CAT 5e cable in a slightly lower cost price range.
Dragchain-flex. Cat.6 SF/UTP network cable

Sophisticated audio and lighting systems are depending more and more on digital data transmission, especially in the event sector. The advantages are quite obvious: Instead of having to lay out heavy and bulky multicore cables, only a light and thin cable will do the same job perfectly. The conversion of audio signals into data, though, also entails the risk of external interferences.

That is why CORDIAL has developed a new CAT 6 data cable (CCAT 6 Highflex), particularly suitable for mobile and varying applications and stages. Due to its special separator-cross design and a shielding combination of CU braided and foil shield, interference-free data transmissions of a bandwidth of up to 250 MHz and 55 meters distance are possible. Compared to Cat 5e cables, this results in a 2.5x faster data transmission. The CCAT 6A INST FRNC, on the other hand, is ideal for fixed installations and especially suited for stationary and static applications.

It is especially convenient that using CORDIAL’s DMX adapter allows you to combine 4 DMX lines in one data cable, thus really simplifying moving lights operations considerably. The CCAT 6 Highflex can be ordered reeled onto 100m and 500m drums (RRP plus VAT: 4.90 €/meter) and will soon also be available assembled with connectors.

Ethernet goes PVC

Ethernet is now standard in many live and studio applications. In contrast to the CCAT 5, the CCAT 5 PVC uses polyvinyl chloride (PVC) sheath instead of a polyurethane sheath (PUR). This can save a lot of money, especially on longer distances, without having to fear significant losses in quality.

Like the PUR variant, the CCAT 5 PVC continues to be highly flexible, robust and can be easily drummed. Due to its robust shielding, it transmits all signals without interference.

The electrical characteristics correspond to the category Cat 5e and are therefore suitable for data transmissions with a bandwidth up to 100 MHz. Unlike traditional Ethernet cables, Cordial protects its Cat 5e cables with a tinned copper overall shield from outside interference. This makes it easy to lay Cordial CCAT 5 cables close to live components and cables.

Tobias Felbermayr, Head of Sales & Marketing at CORDIAL:
"With live applications in the outdoor area, in particular, more and more people are relying on easy-to-install data cables." With the CCAT 5 PVC, Cordial offers a cost-effective but high-quality version. "

The CCAT 5 PVC is packaged on 50m & 75m drums as CSE NN 5 SD-PVC with proven NEUTRIK etherCON plugs and as a meter from 100m.
