Gepco Introduces Four-channel, Heavy-duty Cat5e Snake

Unique Construction Ideal for Mobile Applications

DES PLAINES, IL, April 15, 2007— Gepco International has introduced the CTS4504HDX, a four-channel, heavy-duty Cat5e snake. The first of its kind, the CTS4504HDX is an ideal solution for applications that require multiple or redundant channels of Cat5e cables in remote production or staging applications.

The CTS4504HDX consists of four elements of Gepco's CT504HDX heavy duty, four-pair Cat5e UTP cables under an overall jacket. Each element features 24 gage, solid copper conductors and a unique inner belt that preserves the critical pair spacing and geometry. For added strength and diameter, each four-pair UTP element has a second TPE jacket which is color coded for easy identification. The outer jacket is also constructed from a rugged TPE compound for exceptional durability and flexibility in hostile environments.

Each Cat5e four-pair UTP element can be terminated with either standard Cat5 RJ45 connectors or the ruggedized Neutrik EtherCon® connectors.

"With the introduction of the CTS4504HDX, we're bringing our CT504 series into a unique, multi-element, multi-pair type cable construction," explains Scott Fehl, Gepco's products development manager. "This new design brings new interconnect possibilities to the mobile production and event staging industries that have increasing need of Cat5e cabling solutions for audio, video, and data formats."

Gepco® International, with headquarters in Des Plaines, IL, and a branch location in Burbank, CA, has been a leading provider of studio and broadcast audio and video cables for more than 25 years. The company also specializes in manufacturing custom cable assemblies, panels, patch bay harnesses and breakout boxes.
