IBC Debut For New Canford Services

News Image
As Canford celebrates its 40th anniversary, the company has announced it will launch a number of new products and services at IBC2016 next month, Stand 11.D01.

At the show, Canford will launch the new fibre termination facility, which will be located at its Washington, UK, headquarters. The company's range of Mains Distribution Units also has a new addition which incorporates an LCD current meter. The display allows system integrators to monitor overall current draw, identify and resolve any overloading issues.

Also manufactured by Canford is the Fibre Field Termination Rackmount Case. This is designed to facilitate a fast and effective solution for installing hybrid fibre connectors on site, eliminating the need for pre-terminated cable assemblies. The boxes come complete with up to 8 x Lemo 3K.93C EDW or FMW cable assemblies pre-fitted in either a flat or angled 2U front panel. The SMPTE cable enters the chassis via rear cable glands and the strain relief is secured to the clamping post. The electrical cables are then terminated directly to the AMP connector provided on the internal bulkhead. The fibre cables terminate directly to the SC coupler on the same bulkhead using Senko XP Fit Plus connectors or alternatively via SC tails which are spliced to the incoming fibre using the integral splice tray.

The system provides improved protection to both the electrical and fibre connections which are secured within the case, but also allows for quick and easy replacement or repair of any failed SMPTE connectors.

Canford will also highlight the new Green-GO DECT wireless intercom which interfaces with the existing digital wired intercom, providing high quality, low latency audio with RF coverage.

Other new products on display include additions to the Enclosure Systems range of full rack cabinets and IP rated 19 inch rack enclosures.

Commenting ahead of the show, Stephen Gallagher, Marketing Manager, Canford, said: "IBC is an incredibly important exhibition for Canford and we're delighted to be announcing several new products and services. Most significant is our new fibre termination service with which we'll deliver a short lead-time service for the termination of LEMO, Neutrik and other fibre connectors, for situations where speed is of the essence."

John Driver, Project Lead and Head of Design, Canford, added: "Our new fibre termination service is a natural progression of Canford's UK manufacturing capability and demonstrates the company's tenacity to evolve with new technology. The ability to provide customers with a qualified and speedy fibre termination service further extends our ability to produce ready-made and custom cable assemblies."
