Gepco introduces new HD hybrid fiber camera cables and cable assemblies
Gepco displayed its new HDC120 series at NAB2003.
The series consists of the HDC120 and HDC120PU 12mm heavy-duty hybrid fiber cables for SMPTE 311M HD camera applications. Both cables feature an increased overall diameter, larger gage copper conductors, and Kevlar-reinforced and tube-jacketed single mode fibers for added durability.
The 12mm Gepco HDC120 series utilizes two conductors for streamlined termination and reduces the possibilities of electrical faults.
Also available are pre-terminated cable assemblies, which use the 12mm Lemo connector along with Gepco’s proprietary Kellem Adapter. Gepco’s Kellem Adapter with Kellem metal strain relief substantially reduces stress from flex, pulling and twisting, greatly improving the durability of the connector and cable termination.
The buffered coating on the fiber is a nylon-based polymer that has three times the tensile strength of conventional coated fiber found in other hybrid fiber cables.
The 12mm Gepco HDC120 series utilizes two conductors for streamlined termination and reduces the possibilities of electrical faults. In addition, the 12mm cables’ thicker and larger outer jacket is less prone to getting caught under camera tripods.
The HDC120PU features large gage conductors, standard-sized breakout fibers and extra-rugged polyurethane. Both HDC120 cables and the existing HDC920 series all now feature heat-resistant insulation, making the cables stable in high temperature environments.
