Van Damme Cat7 TourcatVDC Trading has announced two new Cat cables following more than 12 months of development and three stages of production design – a Cat7 TourCat and a Cat6A flexible TourCat

The new cables represent an increase in the solid core and stranded copper cables for digital audio in both bandwidth and length of run. Both cables are rated to carry up to 10Gb, even though likely maximum load for a digital audio network is 1Gb.

The Van Damme 268-470-000 TourCat Cat7 S/FTP solid conductor is a polyurethane (PUR) jacketed 0.56mm solid conductor cable with individually screened pairs and an 80% coverage overall braided screen. It has been tested to provide a proven Gigabit Ethernet connection at 105m.

The Van Damme 268-466-000 TourCat Cat6A S/FTP stranded conductor is a flexible PVC jacketed 26AWG stranded conductor cable with individually screened pairs and a 75% coverage overall braided screen. It has been tested to provide a proven Gigabit Ethernet connection at 74m, with sufficient headroom to extend to 75m.

Full information, including Category 6A testing, will be uploaded to the company’s website soon.

Unlike some manufacturers, VDC trading offers a readily available conventional Cat6A RJ45 plug to fit both of these cables. Although protocols for network systems vary, the new Cat7 cable will provide more stability, less jitter and packet errors and is more likely to achieve runs of 100m or more. ‘We are really delighted with these new cables,’ says VDC Technical Consultant, Dug Guthrie. ‘They represent a lot of development work and the end result is even better than we had hoped.’
