The 164' Behringer NCAT5E-50M Tour-Grade CAT5E Cable is manufactured by KLARK TEKNIK and consists of Neutrik etherFLEX cable with etherCON connectors on a Schill cable drum. Designed for touring applications, the cable drum is made to be both durable and lightweight. It has an auxiliary winder and an integrated adjustable break. The cable has been tested for both AES50 and EtherSound audio networking protocols, and will also work for more general Ethernet remote control applications.
The EtherFLEX cable structure includes four pairs of stranded AWG 26 wires, designed to withstand repeated flexing and stress better than solid wires. The wires are surrounded by conductive foil and additional braided shielding for rejection of EMI, RF, and ESD. Its inner FRNC jacket is separated from the rugged outer FLEX PUR jacket by a thin layer of talc powder, for improved cable handling properties.
The synthetic rubber material can withstand temperatures from -4 to 158°F and is resistant to certain chemicals and oils. The integrated adjustable break stops any inadvertent drum rotation. The cable is wound on the auxiliary spool for easily connecting the drum to the mixing console. Rubber caps on both etherCON connectors cover terminals during setup and transport, and hook-and-loop fasteners secure cable ends during transportation.
