ANALOGUE, AES/EBU & DMX
Van Damme Tour Grade Classic XKE Microphone cable combines flexibility, durability, noiseless operation and excellent handling characteristics. Van Damme microphone cables can be found in film and recording studios, high street music shops, professional touring applications and the education sector.
This is the analogue pre-jacketed cable of choice for the professional user. Extremely flexible, sonically transparent and intelligently designed with both numbered and colour coded pairs. This cable more than satisfies the rigorous demands of studio engineers, installers and manufacturers. It has been extensively utilised in studios around the world from the BBC to Abbey Road.
Van Damme Black Series Tour Grade is an analogue audio multicore range specifically designed to survive the harshest touring conditions and other high stress environments. It is tried, tested and trusted in the live touring field by audio professionals both for its durability and its sonic fidelity.
Van Damme Green Series Digi Grade cables have been specifically designed for the accurate transmission of AES/EBU digital audio signals. Low capacitance and stable characteristic impedance ensure that signals remain error and jitter free over long distances. This also makes this cable range suitable for other critical data transfer applications such as RS422, midi and timecode. Also suitable for balanced analogue audio use.
Van Damme DMX512 cables are robust, tour grade PVC jacketed precision foil screened cables for the transmission of the DMX512 lighting control protocol. 22 AWG conductors with foamed polyethylene insulation ensures accurate data transfer over longer distances. Available as a 1 pair in 3 colours, and 2 pair in black only.
Van Damme Flexible Cat 5E TourCat is a stranded Cat 5E patch cable with the feel and flexibility of Van Damme Microphone cable. Suitable for Gigabit and 100 Mbit data and ethernet based digital audio & video transmissions to the maximum length shown in the Application Notes below.
Van Damme TourCat Cat 6A S/FTP stranded conductor is a flexible PVC jacketed 26 AWG stranded conductor cable with individually screened pairs and a 75 % coverage overall braided screen. Suitable for Gigabit and 100 Mbit data and ethernet based digital audio & video transmissions to the maximum length shown in the Application Notes below.
TOUR GRADE SPEAKER
Van Damme Black Series Tour Grade Multicore Speaker Cable offers a comprehensive range of core counts and conductor sizes, covering most low impedance speaker systems. In addition, the 18 core 1.50 mm² and 2.50 mm² multicores are rated for use with mains voltage for lighting dimmer to fixture 19 pole assemblies.
The SDI Vision range of 75 Ohm precision coaxial cables comprises a Low Smoke Zero Halogen jacketed single coax and 6 way LSZH jacketed multicore. As with the Van Damme HD vision range close attention has been paid to their electrical characteristics and tolerances to ensure trouble free performance with SMPTE 259M SDI signals as well as analogue video. These cables can also be used for shorter distance transmission of 3 Gb/s HD-SDI – please see the transmission length guidelines.
Van Damme HD Vision single coaxials are based around industry standard RG6/U and RG59/U. Their precision construction ensures that electrical performance has not been majorly affected by the use of a stranded centre conductor, ensuring trouble free performance with SMPTE 424M and 292M HD-SDI signals as well as SDI and analogue video.
The Van Damme Ambicore range is a hybrid multicore with an AES/EBU screened & jacketed pair combined with 0.75 mm², 1 mm², 1.5 mm² or 2.5 mm² jacketed power cables. Very flexible and specified for dynamic use this cable range provides an elegant solution to the problem of integrated signal and power distribution.
The Van Damme upgraded Cat 6A hybrid range features 2 and 4 way Cat 6A multicores, 2 Cat 6A and 4 110 Ω analogue/digital audio pairs, and 2 options with power – 2 Cat 6A, 4 110 Ω audio pairs, 1 3 x 2.5mm² HO5 power and 4 Cat 6A, 8 110 Ω audio pairs, 1 3 x 2.5mm² HO5 power. The 23 AWG solid conductor F/UTP Cat cable elements will support Gigabit Ethernet channel link at 100 metres, ideal for the common network protocols used in digital audio and video. The 110 Ω audio pairs are also suitable for DMX512 and other balanced data applications.
