The Belden Solution

Belden has announced that it is the first cable manufacturer to offer system integrators an innovative cable solution.
The company has designed its new System Integrator Digital Coax cables especially for use with compression connectors.
The cable design features a foil shield that is securely bonded to the jacket and is self-removing during preparation for connection, thus making installation easier and eliminating the risk of foil stringers and shorting and is available in four designs and five colours.
The new Belden System Integrator Digital Coax cable line includes four products: 1355R and 1355P (RG-59/U Type), and 1356R and 1356P (RG-6/U Type).
All cables are sweep tested to 3GHz, and all guarantee -15dB Return Loss (RL) performance. The cable design includes a tinned copper braid shield (85 percent coverage) and bonded Duofoil shield (100% coverage) for effective shielding in higher frequency applications. The foil is placed over the braid and securely bonded to the jacket so it is self-removing during cable preparation.
Belden executives said that, with the proliferation of plasma and LCD screens, there is growing market demand for high resolution video in a host of applications, including: AV presentations and whiteboards for meetings and classroom training; Projector presentation systems; Teleconferencing; Closed-circuit surveillance and security systems; Video for home theatres; Video pick-up in sports bars, casinos, 'racinos' and other commercial venues; High Resolution Surveillance Video; SDI, video, and Broadband HDTV and Broadband Internet Delivery.
Concurrently, AV and security system integrators are increasingly selecting compression connectors, which can be problematic when used with traditional foil design coaxial cables.
They said that the foil can bunch up when inserted into compression connectors or, if the foil is left in place, foil “stringers” can result which can short to the cable’s centre conductor.
