Neutrik EtherCon Cat 6 series offers solution for outdoor Ethernet use
Neutrik will feature its EtherCon series for Cat 6 cables, offering a rugged patch cable solution with a metal housing for RJ45 cable connectors that protect them against mechanical load, at the Winter NAM 2008 in Anaheim, CA.
The EtherCon Cat 6 series is equipped with Neutrik’s chuck-type strain relief with a separate push-pull locking mechanism to avoid accidental unplugging. The cable solution is available in custom lengths and the receptacle will accept a standard RJ45 cable end in addition to the EtherCon Cat 6 patch cable.
The EtherCon system was developed to meet the ever-increasing requirements of data volume, transfer rate and bandwidth. It is suitable for Ethernet applications, especially in harsh, demanding environments such as live stage production, DMX lighting, outdoor Internet access and industrial Ethernet.
