Beldenâ€™s Digital Audio Cables, Available from Maser, Provides OptimalDigital/Analog Performance and Installation Ease
Available from Maser Communications (UK), one of Beldenâ€™s leading Specialised Distributors and DNA Partners for the supply of Beldenâ€™s extensive range of cables to the Broadcast and Pro-Audio/Video markets in the UK and Ireland, the Belden Brilliance 1353A, a new Cat 5e digital audio single-pair cable, is ideal for use in professional and commercial audio applications.
The 1353A is especially valuable where small size, low weight, and high performance are required, and can be used anywhere a traditional analog or digital shielded pair might be employed, even where cabling may experience rough handling and harsh environmental conditions.
Other benefits if this new Cat 5e digital audio single-pair cable include the following:
1) Installation Efficiency
Many installers routinely use Category 5e or Category 6 cables for audio applications. But, until now if you wanted a single Cat 5e pair, it was necessary to take a four-pair cable and laboriously separate out a pair. The availability of this new ready-to-use jacketed single pair eliminates those inconvenient steps, saving installation time and improving installation efficiency.
2) Installable Performance
Beldenâ€™s patented Bonded-Pair technology provides maximum ruggedness and consistent electrical properties during and after installation. During installation, cables are typically pulled, bent, and even kinked. All of these actions can alter the dimensions and physical properties of the cable, degrading its electrical performance. However, the Bonded- Pair design attaches the two wires together (without glue!) for a uniform conductor-to conductor spacing. This helps the cable withstand the rigors of installation and maintain high performance.
3) Its Not Just for Digital Use, But Analog Too, and More
As a bonus, the 1353A Single-pair Digital Audio Cable can be used for analog applications as well as digital. As by nature of the products design, Belden Digital Audio Cables have a low capacitance due to their high impedance, making them excellent analog cables.
4) Outstanding Construction for Indoor/Outdoor Versatility
This innovative new productâ€™s jacket is made of a rugged matte-finish PVC, yet the cable is still highly flexible and very round. Overall nominal cable diameter is 0.126 in. so the minimum installed bend radius is 1.26 in. The insulation on the pair is polyolefin. Operating temperature range for Belden 1353A is -20ÂºC to 60ÂºC and this cable complies with NEC/(UL) CMR (riser) and CEC/(UL) CMG fire ratings.

Dekoron Cable effective and efficient for plant operations
Dekoron Wire & Cable are the innovators in Instrumentation. Technology to improve signal transmission, shielding, and custom designed cables have allowed Dekoron to bring to market products required to effectively and efficiently run plant operations.
Dekoron Instrumentation Cables, available from Maser Communications, are used in many plants throughout the world to transmit information between sensors, analysers and control rooms. Dekoron innovations in insulation and shielding provide protection for cables from electronic noise and interference that could interrupt accurate information being transferred through the plant.
Dekoron Thermocouple extension cables utilise a solid alloy wire conductor in applications requiring precise temperature measurement and control for process plants.
Dekoron control cables are essential to maintain a quality control system in harsh environments of process control. Dekoron control cables maintain system integrity and durability in challenging environments and applications.
Specialty Cables for extreme applications, which include fire resistant, cold weather, dual armor, circuit integrity, armored fieldbus and zero halogenÂ are also developed and manufactured.
Cables with up to 100 conductors or conductor groups and continuous lengths of 10,000 feet are also possible. All conductor groups can be shielded against electromagnetic interference by the use of proper shields and drains.
Materials are sourced from high quality, reliable and competitive materials. Inventory is maintained or sourced through short-lead times and supplier stock programmes.
Thermoset and thermoplastic materials are used for cable insulation. To assure clean and accurate signals back to the control room, aluminum, copper, and bronze shields are applied to individual and groupings of cable.
An additional layer of protection of armor is added depending on the applications. This includes Served Wire Armor (SWA) for physical protection where cut through resistance is necessary, and Interlock Armor (aluminum or galvanised) for mechanical and cable core protection.
Dekabon Moisture/Chemical Barrier is applied to provide chemical, crush and vapour resistance and protection against moisture. The addition of Dekabon ensures cable suitability for direct burial applications and abrasive backfilling. Paired with a drain wire, Dekabon also acts as an electrostatic shield which provides protection against lighting.
Thermoset and thermoplastic jackets are used for first and second jackets within the cable. Jackets can be easily removed with a nylon ripcord for field stripback and terminations.
All Dekoron products are manufactured to high quality standards. All cables are subjected to electrical inspection after twisting, bunching, jacketing and armoring.

5th Edition Belden Digital Studio Cable Guide
This Belden guide is a popular and useful tool featuring an updated maximum transmission distance table and answers to FAQ's regarding both digital audio and digital video cable installations. Click on the below link to download.
The new Series SF flexible servo cables from Alpha Wire offer increased flexibility for connectingÂ power between the supply and servo motors, drives, and controllers. A flexible thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) jacket and PVC/nylon insulation make the cable suitable for flexing applications that require continuous movement.Â Superior flexibility and a tight bend radius of ten times the cableâ€™s diameter also make installation easier.
The UL Listed cables meet the requirements of NFPA 79, allowing them to be used in industrial machinery applications such as machine tools, pick and place equipment, Cartesian and articulated motion control, and automated material handling systems.
To meet a range of power requirements, Series SF cables are available over an 18 to 8 AWG (0.96 to 8.5 mm2) conductor size range. The cables are available in both power and composite cable configurations.Â The Series SF power cable has four conductors for power and ground. The Series SF composite power cable adds two twisted pairs for use in braking control, temperature monitoring, or other control/monitoring uses.Â To provide excellent EMI protection in noisy electrical environments, the cables are shielded with a combination foil and tinned copper braid.
â€œThe new Series SF gives users a more reliable and easy-to-use way to connect servo power,â€ said Mike Dugar, Senior Product Manager at Alpha Wire. â€œUsers want more flexibility to make installation and startup faster, as well as increase long-term reliability.Â Series SF does all of that, while maintaining the rugged performance needed for industrial machinery.â€
Series SF flexible servo cables are rated for 600 volts and meet the UL requirements for TC-ER and WTTC applications and CSA for AWM I/II A/B. They are oil and sunlight resistant.Â The new Series FL flexible servo cables are members of the Alpha Wire Communication, Control, & Industrial product family.

Cable sheaths to protect against aggressive chemicals
Dekoron is promoting a range of cables which can be furnished with â€˜armourâ€™, protecting them from harsh environments in the oil and gas industry.
The cable sheaths or â€˜armourâ€™ were designed to answer the problem of the permeability of existing plastic cable sheaths on the market due to humidity and aggressive chemicals.
â€œPenetration of these elements to the core of the cable compromise its overall lifetime performance. A conventional cable core protection against above mentioned elements is generally achieved by applying a lead sheath,â€ said the company.
Dekoronâ€™s DEKABONâ€™s cable constructions can be furnished with armouring options including served wire armour and interlock armour for additional physical protection.
The DEKABON technology is scalable and has been applied to instrument, control and thermocouple extension cables, says the company, also claiming that the technology has already been used by all major oil companies in their refineries and petrochemical facilities for over 25 years.
The technology is now available locally for the oil refining and petrochemical industry.
