Io Audio Technologies Announces Install-Grade Bulk Stranded Ethernet Cable

March 18 2020, 01:20
Io Audio Technologies has improved upon their line of install grade Category 5E and Category 6 bulk stranded wire. Among the most notable changes is a new, black, non-reflective jacket which gives the cable a sleek appearance, making it perfect for on-stage installations of AVoIP gear where cables should blend into the background. These cables are also CMR rated and meet the IEC flammability standards, so they are equally at home in commercial or residential installation projects where safety and performance are both priorities.

Another notable improvement is a robust, premium foil shield which offers best-in-class protection from interference and crosstalk between cables. Lastly, a Polyolefin jacket makes conduit runs smoother, and ensures that less stress is being transferred to the conductors.

"We aimed high with our new stranded category cables. We made them more user friendly and made several improvements that AV and IT integrators will love, including heavy duty pull boxes that allow the cable to be dispensed right from the box without buckling or warping the cardboard. Additionally, we added distance markers every 2 feet in order to ensure integrators can keep tabs on how much product they've run and also how much product they have left on their reels for other jobs,” says Randy Rivero, VP of Technology at Io Audio Technologies.

New Powerlatch Cables
Io Audio Technologies also introduced new standard sizes of their Powerlatch series of rugged AC power cables with Powercon connectors, adding a 6- and 25-foot option that will join their current sizes of 3 and 10 feet for the Powerlatch to Powerlatch cables. The Powerlatch to Edison cables will have a 3-foot option that will join their standard sizes of 10 and 25 feet. 

Designed for use in indoor and outdoor environments, the Powerlatch AC power cables utilize a weatherproof jacket to ensure proper performance and safety in most applications. They are fitted with rugged locking connectors that provide the safest connection for high current applications by virtually eliminating the possibility of accidental unplugging. The connectors are also specifically keyed, and color coded for input (blue) and output (grey) to eliminate the possibility of intermating. 

The Powerlatch series of AC power connectors are designed for single-phase AC applications and are rated for 20A at 250VAC which makes them perfect for stage productions, lighting systems, and other high current applications.
