ABOUT SOMMER CABLE

www.sommercable.com info@sommercable.com

SOMMER CABLE SAYS HELLO!

FRIEDHELM SOMMER

RAINER BLANCK

Well of ideas...

The musician & businessman...

is the founder of
Sommer Automatic an
engineering company and
SOMMERCABLEGmbH. He is
CEO of SOMMERCABLE. His
passion is playing Cello, he has
a good ear for sound, which of
course is a great asset when it
comes to quality sound required
in cable.

is co-founder and CEO of SOMMER CABLE.


As an ambitious hobby musician, singer and
guitarist, along with his previous business
experience, he held for many years a key
position within Sommer automatic, therefore
he was well prepared to take on the challenge
of developing SOMMER CABLE into a now
leading cable company worldwide.
He has a great relationship with his staff.
Rainer speaks German and English.

PASCAL MIGUET

ANDREAS BAUER

THIERRY MIGUET

The sound fetishist...

Our powerman...

He is our IT Manager...

is company and product manager as


well as developer at SOMMER CABLE
and your top address for technical
questions and details. He manages the
sales department, supports you in your
sales activities and the implementation
of our products. He will be glad to
give you all the necessary information
about merchandizing. Pascal has been
working in the cable and audio business
since 1990. He has large sensitive ears
typical for Frenchmen. He is really fussy
when it comes to sound, loves to play
the synthesizer and is an avid fisherman.
Hespeaks French, English and German.

is company manager and head of the


technical sales department.
As a trumpet player he can set the
tone, but first and foremost he is
responsible for our international
technical support and the export
department.
In his spare time he plays in an
orchestra and is a passionate
beekeeper.
He speaks English and German.

and also responsible for the smooth


disposition of all SOMMER programs
and logistic organisation. If he is not
traveling to see one of his favorite bands,
he likes to program new tools to make life
easier for us computer users. He dreams
of banning all bad music to a planet with
a name that no one can pronounce. He
speaks English and German.

MUSICIANS HAVE BECOME


CABLE SPECIALISTS...
Over the past years, audio products
have become more complex and the
sound has improved considerably.
Thisdoesnt make things easier for the
cable manufacturer. Cables are not
only important for esoterics and
dreamers, but also for the
manufacturers of instruments, studio
and media equipment. By now, even
an amateur is able to recognise
improved sound and must no longer
rely on his fantasy, imagination and
subjective judgement.
For cable manufacturers like us this
represents an important challenge,
because all of a sudden
technical data is also audible,
and of course, it can be verified.
For a company like SOMMER CABLE
this is a quite a stroke of luck, because
all of our customers recognise and
honour good quality.

ABOUT SOMMER CABLE

www.sommercable.com info@sommercable.com

Cable production
HOW ARE SOMMER CABLE MADE ?

The beginning of each cable


is copper litz. Only a few cable manufacturers can make the litz
themselves. Most manufacturers purchase the litz from specialized litz
manufacturers. SOMMER CABLE has been working with the same
dependable product supplier for years. Thus avoiding differences in
quality within a cable series and also shipping problems are minimized.
The photograph on the left shows our Product & Sales Manager Pascal
holding a coil of pre-stranded copper litz. It is used to twist the shielding
of our microphone cable STAGE 22 HIGHFLEX.
SOMMER CABLE manufactures and uses individual litz wires measuring
0.05 to 0.40mm/AWG44 to AWG26, 0.30 to 1.80mm/AWG28 to
AWG13, and 0.04mm to 95mm/AWG31 to AWG3/0 in diameter.

Many of these copper coils


are mounted onto small rotors and then stranded
into a wire by a braider.
The stranded wires are then coated with an
insulation made of PE, PVC, PP, or TPC-ET,
stranded in pairs and again wound onto a drum.

A tin-plated wire for SC-SOURCE MKII


HIGHFLEX in the making.

It gets exciting...
when the insulated wires are stranded with each
other (see photograph on left). This process
determines whether the core will be a simple
microphone cable, a DMX-, a speaker cable or
even a complex multipair. The photograph shows
our load multicore SC-ATRIUM FLEX being
stranded.
After this process is completed copper braided
shielding or an AL/PT-foil may be applied.
The photograph on the right shows a twisting
machine used to manufacture copper spiral
shielding, with up to 96 individual wires at a diameter of 0.07 to 0.15mm/AWG41 to AWG34!

ABOUT SOMMER CABLE

A hand full of granules


alone do not make up an outer jacket. Here
you see Pascal holding our special temperatureresistant granules that are used to manufacture
our notch-resistant S-PVC jackets (see photograph
on left). During the production process, coloured
granules are constantly mixed in with white base
granules. The granules are then melted down
in the extruder, pressed by a special tool (see
photograph on the right) and sprayed onto the
stranded wire pairs.

Now its getting exciting


watching the machines that strand the wire pairs.
The photograph on the right shows a basket
stranding machine with up to 28 coils, this is used
for torsion-free stranding of our new multipair
cable SC-QUANTUM HIGHFLEX. Torsion-free
means that the cable looses its bounce during
the production p
rocess. The advantage is that
such a cable can twist in any possible direction
during mobile a
pplication. Over time, this prevents
knotting and the famous corkscrew effect.

And now comes the most


difficult part
for the cable: The jacket is sprayed on or
extruded, as professionals say.
The photograph on the left shows Andreas in
front of a jacket extrusion line. At the top left side
you can recognize the funnel that dispenses the
granules.
In order to produce 3,000 m/9850 ft. of cable,
many trial runs must take place until the machine
operates at high pressure and with the proper
tolerances. You can be sure that the first 200 to
500 meters/650 to 1950 ft. have to be scrapped.
Only one degree difference in temperature or a
small distraction can ruin the finish or impact the
function of the cable.
Note: The photograph on the right shows the
extrusion control.

Cable production

ABOUT SOMMER CABLE

www.sommercable.com info@sommercable.com

During extrusion
and stranding (the photograph on the left shows
a stranding machine with 100 % reverse twist)
several units monitor the tolerances and electrical
data for the cable (see photograph on right). If
there is only a small irregularity, a siren screams
so loud that you will choke on your morning tea.
This reminds the employee to control the quality of
the cable.

No cable without
a company imprint...
Many of our customers want to have their own
company name imprinted on the cable during the
production p
rocess. There are two options: Ink jet
printing (a unit sprays the image onto the cable)
or via printing wheel or pad printing machine.
A printing wheel (photograph on the right) is first
engraved, this costs a little more, but looks very
professional. The logo can be applied just as
seen on our SOMMERCABLEs.

A cooldown
for the cable (here we mean its jacket) is placed in
a special water quench that is constantly fed with
fresh water via a pump system. This process is important in order to keep the cable from being crushed during winding and that the jacket does not
stick to the inside wiring. The SOMMERCABLEs
are wound onto easy-to-handle 100, 200, 400
or 500 m/300, 650, 1300, 1600 ft. rolls and
sent to the wholesaler or stored in our Distribution
Centre in Straubenhardt, Germany.

Checked and approved


Every SOMMERCABLE, after initial
manufacturing or new development, is tested an
approved. Before a cable is fit for the market, it is
tested for its bending, pulling and folding qualities
in a specially developed machine. This is a very
extensive process taking many months, hence we
have several units operating simultaneously.
The photograph on the right shows the poor old
MERIDIAN being made to suffer on a so-called
bending change testing unit (accord. to VDE
0472/Part 603). This process always creates
a lot of laughter. Each cable is also electrically
tested before delivery and receives our CE- and
SOMMERCABLE-stickers.

ROGER HODGSON
Roger Hodgson became known as
one of the most gifted composers,
songwriters and lyricists of our time. As
the legendary voice of Supertramp
and author of the bands greatest
hits he wrote songs like Give a Little
Bit, The Logical Song, Dreamer,
Take the Long Way
Home, Breakfast
In America,

HELLMUT HATTLER & BAND

Its Raining Again, School,


FoolsOverture and many more.
During this period Supertramp sold
far more than 60 million albums and
became a worldwide phenomenon in
rock music. Every fifteenth Canadian
owned the two albums Crime Of The
Century and the high-flying Breakfast
In America, on which the majority of
hits were written and sung by Roger

and which became one of the most


successful albums of all times.
After a longer break Hodgson has been
touring again since 2002 either as
a duo, accompanied by a saxophone
player, with a full band or even with
an orchestra. The legend is back and,
no doubt about that, his unmistakeable
voice sounds better than ever before.

COLOSSEUM
This incredibly good live band
from England is listed in the
rock encyclopedia as the best
band of all times, and the live

Hellmut is a very important man for us. He is


not only a very talented bass player (many
say he is the best bass player in Germany),
but also a very likable fellow. He and his
band HATTLER stand for sophisticated club
music. He has very high demands when it
comes to sound quality at live performances
or the high fidelity sound character on sound
media. Hellmut is a founding member of the
German cult band KRAAN, which was a
sensation especially in the seventies. Hellmut
continues to prove his flexibility and musical
versatility with band projects like TABTWO or
DEEP DIVE CORP.

because the band seems to unite


the members of who is who in the
British jazz, blues, and rock scene.
This was the reason a murmur
went through the music scene
when COLOSSEUM announced
in 1994 that they would give
ONE (!) concert at the Tent Music
Festival in Freiburg. The success
was overwhelming and resulted in
some large concert tours throughout
Europe.

As a member of the band RAMMSTEIN, Richard


Z. Kruspe surely is one of the most famous guitarists
and song writers in Germany. In studios in New
York and Berlin he tested our guitar, multicore and
microphone cables. So, we hope that they will hold
up to even the toughest demands! SOMMER CABLEs
were also used to produce the latest RAMMSTEIN

FETTES BROT
Germanys third to fifth most popular band
belongs to the two survivors of the first big
German-language rap wave in the early
1990s. Their catalogue now boasts 10
albums (including Best ofs, live albums and
compilations) plus, believe it or not, 28 singles
and videos, issued since 1994.
The bands works include unforgettable pop
classics such as Nordisch by Nature (Nordic

Mdchen (Gay Girls), The Grosser (The
Big One), An Tagen wie diesen (On Days
Like These) or Bettina, zieh dir bitte etwas

an (Bettina, put something on please) not


to forget Emanuela (Gold in Germany and
Austria, biggest selling song online 2005,

Fettes Brot have come a long way from their
musical origins as a hip hop crew, breaking
all genre boundaries in a unique way. In live
performances the three replaced the record
player with eight fellow musicians several
years ago Fettes Brotin football team size
produced two long-awaited live albums in

BARBARA DENNERLEIN
Her CDs received awards
repeatedly the Jazz Award and a
price from German record critics.
Her CD Take Off (Verve/Universal)
even reached 1st place in the jazz
charts and was celebrated top-selling
jazz album. Barbara Dennerlein is
one of a few German artists with an
international reputation. In her releases
and her concerts she very competently
represents a new generation of
jazz musicians. She has become a
protagonist of her instrument, the
legendary Hammond B 3.

RAINER VON VIELEN


Whereas in the early days of his career
the computer used to be the constituent
factor in his compositions for singer and
band name giver Rainer von Vielen, this
one was gradually replaced both at the
live shows and in the studio.
Rainer von Vielen draw on all musical
styles - the band itself calls their distinct
result bastard pop. The divide between
two songs can be as deep as the gap
between a hardcore band and a singersongwriter. Hereby the joining element
remains the linking of traditional instruments such as accordeon
and harmonica with contemporary instruments. Another unique
characteristic is singer Rainers laryngeal singing which also
helps to transport words.
Finally its also the contentful lyrics which stand out of the mass
of sleek-polished elevator pop music of commercial radio
stations: Rainer von Vielen take a clear stance against racism,
indifference & violence - the band supports the ATTAC & SEA
SHEPHERD NGOs, the large-scale rallies against the CASTOR
transports of the Citizens Initiative Lchow-Dannenberg or
the protest campaigns against the G-8 summits. The RvV song
Tanz Deine Revolution [Dance Your Revolution] became one
ot the hymns of the protest movement 2007 in Heiligendamm.
The band members are: RAINER VON VIELEN (vocals,
accordeon, programming), MITSCH OKO (guitar), DAN LE
TARD (bass) & NIKO LAI (drums & percussions).

MAGMA
Which band can say that they have
created their own musical genre?
MAGMA! With their very own musical
direction named Zheul, the French band
around Christian Vander has been telling
mystical stories about the planet Kobaa since
the early 1970s. Musically, Zheul reminds
of well-known Orff-creations. The cast, often
consisting of 4 male and female singers,
dissolves the limits between classical music
and timeless jazz-rock. Aside of the musicians
astonishing technical capabilities, the abstract
language Kobaan, used to record almost
all of the MAGMA albums, has contributed to
the bands cult status.

The work of art Mekank Destruktw


Kommandh, created in 1973,
contains all of the elements typical
for MAGMA at such a high
concentration that even today
more than 35 years after it was first
released it stands alone in modern
music history.
Further compositions were created
during this extremely creative phase, which
Christian Vander is currently finetuning. Music journalists continue being
impressed and a large foreign audience
comes a long way to experience MAGMAs
impressive live performances.

Worth knowing about cables


Sun, fire and water...

a good cable may be exposed to all these forces of nature,


but some circumstances should be taken into consideration.

Sun

Water

Cables are not UV-resistant across the board;


particularly coloured cables can react in a very
sensitive manner to direct sunlight. To avoid
premature aging due to sunlight an additive must
be mixed into the colour granulates. We do this
e.g. with some white cables to prevent them from
premature yellowing.
Or you play it safe, always go for a black
outer jacket. SOMMER CABLE uses highquality black Soft PVC, PMB and PUR outer jackets
which will not get sunburnt even under continuous
and direct sunlight.

Cables with a high-quality Soft PVC jacket may indeed be


exposed to constant rain without running the risk of malfunctions.

Fire
Of course, no musician will carry on with his
performance if the place around him is going
up in flames. But why are fire-proof cables still
so important? A lot of permanently installed
cable connections are linked to alarm devices or
loudspeakers (e.g. for announcements) and thus
serve to guarantee safety in case of a fire.
In the event of a fire the cables must not release
toxic and benumbing gases either (halogen-free
materials). In public buildings the use of flameretardant and halogen-free cables (FRNC) is most
often officially required. These regulations may
differ between countries or states and you can
inquire about them at the respective municipality.
Detailed information about the fire behaviour of
cables can be read in this catalogue in the section
MEANING OF THE SYMBOLS PROPERTIES
or visit our homepage www.sommercable.com and
click on the buttons of the respective cable in the
bulkware section.

Naturally you can wind up...


any cable. But you should not use your arm or elbow for
winding. Every cable has a certain bending cycle, and with a
little bit of feeling it can be easily wound up by hand or be removed
from the drum. Wind the cable without using force in the direction
of the bending cycle and it will thank you with longevity and
consistent electrical data.

We keep getting queries as to whether audio or video


cables with a PVC jacket can withstand dives, for instance in
combination with underwater cameras. This is easily possible
as long as the cable is allowed enough time to dry again after
the dives. Temporary underwater installations are also possible,
depending however on the water depth and the water pressure
that goes with it. Unfortunately there are only empirical values
in this respect, for there are no constructive technical defaults for
this kind of cable.
Alas, a PVC jacket is not suited for permanent underwater
installations, neither are cables with an FRNC jacket due to the
porous structure of their jacket compound.
This requires custom-designed longitudinally or
transversely watertight cables, the wires of which
are insulated either with unvulcanised rubber (longitudinally
watertight) or a special tape (transversely watertight). In some
cases the cables are reinforced with an extra metal protection
and filled with petroleum jelly for pressure compensation.
Reinforced longitudinally watertight cables are used e.g. in the
ship or road building industry.
For underground laying or permanent underwater
installation transversely watertight cables are
recommended. Nearly all cables with a high-quality insulation
(preferably with a PE jacket) are lateral watertight. However,
when installing them one should bear in mind that the cables
must be laid in HDPE protection tubes which again are sealed at
both ends against moisture entry.
If no protective tubes are provided, we recommend the
transversely watertight SOMMER CABLE lines of the
AQUA MARINEX series. Depending on the model version, they
are designed for permanent use in water depths between 20 and
200 m and protected against water ingress by a protective band.
Please bear in mind that there is no official approbation for this
type of application.

Dont be cross with us...


if we do not state the minimum bending radius. What is
the minimum bending radius? It is the bending radius of the
cable that protects cable strands and shielding from being damaged.
Common is a radius of about five (for fixed installation) or ten times (for
mobile use) the outer diameter. All of our cables are within this
range. Most are even more flexible.

The perfect cable...

We can create a cable according to your specifications and


are very competent when it comes to specialty cables for the audio
market, mechanical engineering and telecommunications. We can
help you with your cable development or in marketing cables.
We even manufacture small lot sizes according to your specifications
and we can add your brand name, imprint or logo. Depending
on the complexity, the delivery times for these special solutions are
approximately 5 8 weeks.

or: Now you can purchase experience!

We manufacture cables with


Gold-plating, silver-plating or tin-plated stranding
PTFE-insulation, PVC-, PE-, PP- and VPE-insulation
PVC-, PUR-, HM2-, PE-, TPE-, halogen-free and flame retardant
jacket material, according to VDE 0472

We want to develop the perfect cable for every application. It must


exactly suit your requirements, yet be affordable. Here we show you
a reference cable as an example, so you know what to look for when
purchasing cables:

SC-SOURCE MKII HIGHFLEX


1 Super fine individual stranding (0.05mm/AWG44) made of oxygenfree copper (OFC) guarantees high flexibility and hundreds of thousands
of bending cycles. Tight concentric stranding guarantees neutral and
loss-free transmission even over longer distances.
2 A microscopically fine insulation made of polypropylene (PP) or high
quality polyethylene (PE) ensures low capacitive values and prevents
feedover and rattling noises. The PP and our special PE are very
resistant to heat and will not shrink during soldering.

Why are cables getting older too?


A big secret...
because if a little talcum or sand is mixed in, you can save on
PVC, but...
you loose flexibility. If talcum is added, jacket and insulation soak
up moisture like a sponge (e.g. stored in a band bus, transmission
vehicle, rehearsal room or cellar, etc.) and releases it again after
even warming up slightly. With the moisture the softener also
disappears, the cable gets porous and brittle, and the original
protection of the jacket gets lost.
The secret lies in the combination of the jacket mixture.
We leave nothing up to chance. Getting the chemistry right
requires a lot of experience, then testing and more testing.
The result is a cable of excellent quality.

3 For most of our SOMMER CABLEs we use double copper spiral


shielding, aluminised fleece, AL/PT-foil or a semiconductor (conductive
PVC with carbon particles). This construction guarantees 100 % optical
shielding even for rough applications and perfect protection against
interference.
4 The soft PVC-jacket by SOMMER CABLE is almost free of chalk and
is not diluted with sand or other materials, so that the cable does not
sweat out the softener in extreme temperatures. This is very important,
because SOMMER CABLEs are often used for permanent installation
where longevity is expected. SOMMER CABLEs are perfectly balanced
for problem-free processing on cutting machines.
5 Our SOMMER CABLEs carry except for a few exceptions an
imprint showing wire diameter (mm and AWG) and wire construction,
so that the user on stage or on the construction site immediately knows
what kind of a cable he is using. Upon special request and for certain
quantities, we also supply our cables without the imprint.

and Gigabit Ethernet. The CAT.5 is a 100 MHzstandard, just like big brother CAT.5e. In June of
2002, the CAT.6-standard was ratified by TIA/
EIA, with a significantly higher performance than
the CAT.5e-standard and a transmission capacity
of 200 MHz. Of course, all CAT.6-components
are downward compatible to CAT.5e-components.
The CAT.7-cable is designed for data transmission
of up to 600 MHz. It is favored for use in
buildings, because the wire pairs are individually
shielded, with very low cross-talk.

What is the difference between


an unbalanced and a balanced
cable?

FAQ

The unbalanced cable is mostly used to connect


guitars and amplifiers, HiFi-components or as a
simple control cable. It consists of a signal wire
and shielding.

Can I also have my cable with a


personal overprint?
There are indeed several options to have your
SOMMER CABLE product personalised! As a
reaction to the dwindling cable stocks e.g. in the
event technology sector, many companies have
their cables overprinted.
This can be done either with an inkjet printer or a
printing wheel from a certain quantity. The inkjet
overprint is free of charge, whereas an overprint
with a printing wheel is not exactly a low-budget
affair, but offers some benefits. In general it
is somewhat cleaner and more precise, and
complex company logos or small graphics can be
incorporated. Of course, the printing wheel as
long as it has been universally designed may
also be used for other cables.

For a small premium we can also personalise


connectors or cable breakouts. Thus we can
laser your company name or e.g. a reference to
a company anniversary or a dedication on our
TriCone jack plug housings.

Cable with inkjet overprint

Cable with printing wheel overprint

Normally, the colour of the overprint is white


or, with brighter coloured cables, also black.
Unfortunately our cables cannot be overprinted
later, but only directly during our bulkware
production. Therefore we require a minimum
quantity for special printing jobs. Please ask for
the minimum order quantity and the printing wheel
costs at info@sommercable.com.
By the way, many premade SOMMER CABLEs
are already fitted with a transparent shrink-on
tube under which a written paper strip can be slid
subsequently.

SOMMER CABLE has a highly professional laser


facility which can also be used to label metal
parts (e.g. 19 panels or compact stageboxes).

What is the difference between a


CAT.5-, CAT.6- and a CAT.7-cable?
The simple CAT.5-standard was designed for
100Mbps LANs and established around 1990.
This standard as is common in the fast world
of computer technology soon reached its limits
and was replaced by the CAT.5e-standard, which
supports the operation of Full-Duplex Fast Ethernet

The balanced cable has two signal wires with


a phase twisted by 180 (). The opposite
phase releases interference signals, which is why
this type of cable is preferred for long transmission
distances or sensitive, interference-prone
components such as microphones and mixing
boards, etc.

How important is the quality of


the solder?
The quality of the solder and especially the
workmanship of the soldered spots should not
be underestimated for the transmission of audio
signals. Bad solder or a soiled solder bath can
cause the transmission resistances to increase. This
is not only physically detectable, but in rare cases
it can also be heard.
So, use high quality solder to work with (partially
with silver), make sure to provide a clean working
environment and do not touch the wire insulation
with the solder tip.

Are all shiny things made of


gold?
Or: How important is the gold-plated contact on a
plug connector really? But let if first be mentioned:
Pins made of genuine gold would not only be
too expensive, but would also not make any real
technical sense. Gold is a heavy metal and would,
without an alloy treatment, break after only a
few plug cycles. To affect hardness and surface
properties, mostly nickel-plated pins or alloys are
used. Most connectors are only lightly gold-plated

ABOUT SOMMER CABLE

www.sommercable.com info@sommercable.com

21

and reasonably priced ones are sometimes only


painted, which means that a real cheap plug
connector cannot be gold-plated.
The good conductive values of gold can only be
utilized if both socket and plug are gold-plated. If
this is not the case the harder alloy simply scrapes
off the soft gold and oxides build up. Contrary to
public opinion the layperson cannot recognize
the quality of the gold by the colour, because very
often, depending on application and plug cycles,
more complex alloys are used on the connectors.

What is the maximum


transmission length for
HD-SDI cables?
Thats hard to say, because it very much depends
on the peripherals used and the quality of the
interface installed. The question is comparable to
one you would ask the filling station attendant: If
I fill 10 liters/2.6 gallons of gasoline into my car,
how far can I drive? The answer to the question
would depend on the type of vehicle, and the
same it true for HD-SDI cables. Here too, the
hardware data must be considered and used to
calculate the transmission length.
An SDI-cable should be capable of transmitting
270Mbit/sec., the HDTV-cable is designed to
transmit within a range of 1.5 Gbit, thus providing
the resolution required for the PAL 625-line format.
The range of the HD-SDI depends on the bitrate
used (compressed or not compressed). At
1.485Gb/s (not compressed), the damping value
is drawn on at half the bit rate (720 MHz) and
the cable length possible at a damping value of
20dB/100 m or 30dB/100 m / 6 dB/100ft. or
9.1 dB/100 ft. is considered relevant parameter.

This often is the case if the individual litz is


stranded parallel instead of concentric (as is the
case e.g. at SOMMER CABLE).
Parallel stranded litz not only have too small a
conductive surface, but also breaks real fast. Too
small a conductive surface is even noticeable on
a bass cable: It transmits the typical deep sounds,
but will be missing the all important attack and
the dynamics.

Cable manufacturers have to find a compromise


between good electrical values and continuous
stability for insulation and jacket.
If merely the capacity is considered, the cable
would have to be 30cm/11.81 long, which
would not be very practical. The solution: Testing
the sound or sound characteristics of different
cables and selecting the shortest available cable
length for the selected version (mostly 3.0m or
4.5m/10 ft. or 15 ft.) just to be on the safe side.

Concentrically stranded litz

There is no doubt that the length


of the guitar cable affects the
sound. But does the optimum
cable length only depend on the
cable values?
It is not easy to answer this question, because not
only a low capacity is important for the sound of a
guitar cable, but the entire cable construction must
be considered.
A guitar cable can have an extremely low
capacitive value and still sound faint or flat.

The insulation material on guitar cables with an


almost unbelievably low capacitive values is often
very highly foamed. But highly foamed insulation
material is very sensitive to pressure and looses
stability after having been wound only a few times
(i.e. after each gig). The capacitive values thus
increase. To avoid this effect, SOMMER CABLE
uses an especially robust and lacquered insulation
material to finish off porous surfaces.

musician.

mobile
Cables for mobile application distinguish themselves
through a flexible PVC-jacket, a fine-stranded wire
construction, high bending cycles and a low bending
radius. They are easy to wind and suitable for
outdoor a
pplication. For extreme outdoor applications
(transmission vehicles, transmission of sporting events,
etc.), we recommend the version with a PUR- or
TPE-jacket. This jacket used on SOMMER CABLEs
is extremely resistant to notching, is halogen-free and
resistant to high temperatures.

studio
These cables are optimised for sound. The special litz
or wire stranding along with perfect shielding ensure
enduring listening pleasure and perfect transmission.
They are used in the studio setting, for broadcasting
and in transmission vehicles.

installation
Cables for installation are primarily designed for
longevity and safe transmission, especially for ELA100V-technology (german standard). They can be
installed inside buildings over long distances, but are
also suitable for audio units (amplifiers, speakers, etc.)
or control cabinets. If you have special fire protection
requirements, please observe the halogen-free/ PURand FRNC-symbols.

ELA

These cables are suitable to transmit and control 100 Vtechnology. Basically, almost all LF- and speaker cables
in our program can be used in ELA-100V-technology
(german standard). We use high quality materials for the
insulation, such as PE, SPVC, PUR, TPC-ET and PP. The
test voltage for our AF cables is 500 V, in exceptional
cases 1200 V (please ask us for specifications), the
operating voltage is
300 V. The main problem in ELA-100V-technology are
the long d
istances that must be covered. The user must
calculate them. More information can be found on
www.sommercable.com, Service/Techn. Info.

HiFi
These cables are optimized for sound and were
developed for true, i.e. electrically and acoustically linear
transmission of audio signals. You can use them to e.g.
connect amplifiers, speakers, CD-players and other audio
units. They are recommended for the ambitious studio
operator.

PROPERTIES
ANALOG

HALOGEN-FREE

Analog cables are used to transmit low frequency audio


signals and to connect microphones, speakers and many
other audio components.

DIGITAL

S/P-DIF

Primarily digital signals can be transmitted with this cable


in an AES/EBU-, S/P-DIF- and DMX-format. They are
stated with the respectively required surge impedance
of 50, 75 or 110 . Cables which transmit the S/P-DIF
standard exclusively can be identified the S/P-DIF button.
Please observe the surge impedance required for you
peripherals, as stated in our data sheets. Almost all of our
digital cables can also be used as a high quality analog
cable and to connect scanners, mixing boards, HiFicomponents and a number of other studio units.

SDI/HD-SDI

3G-SDI

In case of fire this cable will not develop any gases that
are poisonous to humans, e.g. chloride. This is often a
requirement in public buildings. But careful! A halogenfree cable is flammable and normally a flame-resistant
effect, known as FRNC (halogen-free and flame-resistant),
is required.

Low in fumes

If cables or wiring with insulation or jackets (e.g. made


of PVC) containing chlorine burn, dense black fumes will
be the result. Halogen-free cables or wiring only develop
approx. a tenth of the fume density when compared to
PVC-cables or wiring they are thus considered to be low
in fumes.

6G-SDI

Basically every 75 cable is SDI capable provided you


dont exceed a certain length. The decisive factor for the
maximum cable length is the attenuation at the relevant
frequencies; the max. recommended damping should
not be greater than 30 dB on 100 m/9.1 dB on 100 ft..
The bit rates for HD-SDI are 1.485 Gbit/s and 2.970
Gbit/s with Dual Link HD-SDI (SMPTE372M) and 3G-SDI
(SMPTE424M). With 6G UHD-SDI its 6 Gbit/s. For long
transmission distances fibre-optical systems (Fiber) are also
employed. Its difficult to make a general statement as
to viable transmission distances, as these always depend
on the quality of the device interfaces. In theory they can
be calculated as follows: 3000 divided by the specified
attenuation at 3 Ghz for 100 m = cable length in m. Thus
43 dB e.g. would result in a maximum cable length of 69
m. In particular 3G/6G and 12G-SDI signals are used in
the production sector to serve the (future) UHD standard.

HDTV
Currently the buzz word in the television industry is
HDTV. Scart, RCA or S-video connections are no longer
used for transmission. The new connections are called
HDTV (or DVI) and YUV. HDMI- and DVI-signals can be
encoded with HDCP. The playback units and monitors
then must support HDCP. Alternately, YUV can be used
for a simpler transmission, but HDCP-signals are not
transmitted. YUV can be transmitted with 3coax-cables,
mostly equipped with RCA or BNC-connectors. Caution:
A YUV-signal is not compatible with an RBG-signal,
despite the fact that the 3 sockets on the units are often
identified in red/green/blue.

FRNC

FRNC
These cables comply with the generally valid fire
protection guidelines. They are halogen-free and
flame-resistant. This guideline is classified.
EXPLANATION of testing procedures according to
VDE0472, Part 804:

FRNC Test Type A ( IEC 60332-2-2)

A cable sample measuring 60 cm/1.97 in length is


vertically suspended in the center of a metal box (height
1200mm x width 300mm x depth 400mm/47 x 11.8
x 15.7). A gas burner with a defined flame is fixed, so
that its axis is tilted by 45 in reference to the vertical.
The flame hits the cable sample about 100mm/3.9 from
the lower end. The flame hits until the conductor or the
top most metal shielding emerges, but no longer than 20
seconds. The test is successful if the test sample did not
burn or if the flame that resulted extinguishes itself and the
damage caused by the heat of the flame did not reach
the upper end of the test sample.

ABOUT SOMMER CABLE

www.sommercable.com info@sommercable.com

FRNC Test Type B ( IEC 60322-1-2)

A cable sample measuring 60 cm/1.97 in length is


vertically suspended in the center of the metal box (height
1200mm x width 300mm x depth 400mm/47 x 11.8
x 15.7). A gas burner with a defined flame is fixed, so
that its axis is tilted by 45 in reference to the vertical.
The flame hits the cable sample about 100mm/3.9
from the lower end for about 1 2minutes, depending
on the weight of the sample. The test is successful if the
test sample did not burn or if the flame that resulted
extinguishes itself and the damage caused by the heat of
the flame did not reach the upper end of the test sample.

FRNC test type C ( IEC 60322-1-3)

Cable samples, each measuring 360 cm/1.2 ft. in


length, are fastened side by side to a ladder-like test
rack. This test rack is inserted vertically into a kiln, at a
distance of 150mm/5.9 to the back of the kiln. The
cable samples are reached by the flame at a height
of approx. 60cm/1.90, at a temperature of approx.
800C/1472F, by a burner of approx. 250mm/9.8
in width. The exposure time is 20 minutes. The test is
successful if the flame that resulted extinguishes itself
and the damage caused by the heat of the flame did not
reach the upper end of the test sample.

PUR
A PUR-jacket is extremely tough, especially resistant to
the cold (40 C/40 F), yet easy to wind even at
minimal temperatures. At SOMMER CABLE we usually
give our cables a halogen-free PUR-jacket, which is, aside
of the advantages mentioned above, very tolerant to heat
and sunlight. This jacket is a little more expensive than
the standard PUR-mixture, but is meanwhile required and
preferred by almost all broadcasting companies and
professional installers.

E30
This seemingly unimpressive identification code stands for
an important description of continuous function in case
of fire.
This fire protection class is based on DIN VDE 0815/
DIN VDE 4102 (Part 12) and stands for improved
performance in case of a fire, compared to e.g. common
FRNC-cables. In compliance with this norm, E30
guarantees continuous function for 30 minutes.
Please note that it is not possible to manufacture all cables
accord. to E30 or even E90, because the insulation on
some cables does not comply with the norm stated above.

E90
This fire protection class is based on DIN VDE 0815/
DIN VDE 4102 (Part 12) and stands for improved
performance in case of a fire, compared to e.g. common
FRNC-cables. In compliance with this norm, E90
guarantees continuous function for 90 minutes.
Approbation E90 is first and foremost required for power
and fire alarm cables. This norm rarely is applied to audio
multipair cable connections, because the insulation walls
on cables with small diameters are too thin.

23

TERRA
This cable has a special jacket mixture made of PE,
suitable for in-ground installation. But note that a PEjacket does not automatically make a cable suitable for
in-ground installation, because this type of cable must
be specially designed to withstand the pressures under
ground.
However, all cables with this symbol are suitable for
in-ground installation.

A granular mix on a PVC-basis, also exclusively


developed for SOMMER CABLE. S-PVC is a super soft
PVC with the feeling and flexibility of a soft rubber
hose cable, but with significantly more resistance
to notching and cold temperatures than most standard
PVC-jackets.
While most jacket mixtures already start tearing during
mobile application of 10C/14 F, the S-PVC
withstands temperatures of 30 C/22 F.

AQUA
All cables marked with the AQUA button are
longitudinally watertight up to 20 bars of
water pressure or transversely watertight
(AQUA MARINEX series). The special PUR-jacket
keeps water and other fluids from penetrating and
prevents longitudinal dispersion in case of cable
damages. The watertight jacket is also robust enough
to handle the installation of high-pressure end sockets
inevitably needed to prevent moisture from penetrating.
Due to the combination of a special seawater resistant
PUR jacket and a protective band, the AQUA
MARINEX cable series can be permanently laid in
water depths.Penetrating water not only speeds up the
oxidation process, but will, due to the capillary action,
alter the damping and other relevant electrical values.
Here, video cables and other coaxial cable types are
especially jeopardised, e.g. on monitoring cameras or
monitors.
From an order quantity of 2,000 m/6500 ft. almost
all of our cables can be made with a longitudinally or
transversely watertight jacket.

This is a special procedure used by SOMMER CABLE to


compensate for the typical bounce created automatically
during stranding of multipair cables.
Simplified this means: To produce a torsion-free cable,
expensive and complex stranding machines are needed
to counter-strand outer pairs and core. The result is that
a multipair cable can be wound a thousand times or be
twisted into an eight without knotting or buckling.
All multipair cables identified with the X-TORSIONlogo are suitable for extremely high bending cycles (e.g.
ground cables). They are recommended for professional
broadcasting and event technology.

The SYSBOXX-logo identifies products that are


compatible with our modular SYSBOXX-,
SYSFLOOR-, SYSWALL- and SYSDESK-systems
see Chapter Modular Systems. Products with standard
sizes, D-holes carry the SYSBOXX-D-logo.

OFC
SOMMER CABLE mostly uses oxygen-free (OFC) or
low-oxygen copper. For your information: Copper has a
specific resistance of 0.0178 per meter, at a diameter
of 1mm/AWG17. The purer the metal, the smoother it is
(high bending cycles!) and the more consistent this value
will remain over the years.

The Pur Master Blend has a jacket mixture on a


polyurethane basis, especially developed for
SOMMER CABLE. The jacket on the PMB is resistant
to notching and cold temperatures (40 C/40 F)
and free of adhesion with a surface that is easy to clean.
PMB offers the toughness and temperature resistance of
PUR and the flexibility of PVC. PMB is not halogen-free
or flame-retardant.

In particular with high-resolution image and video data


the transmission performance plays an important role.
Products, marked with this button, enable the high data
rate of 10 gigabits per second.

AUDIO TECHNOLOGY IN GENERAL


Professional sound technicians work with so-called balanced cable arrangements or signal processing.
Many people do not know what this means. Reason enough to explain the principle.

Humming and interference noises

Protective classes

First and foremost musicians want to play music.


The switch is turned on, the guitar cable is plugged in and then awesome
humming. It is not very easy to explain how this humming, mostly caused by
so-called ground loops, is created. For musicians and roadies it is important to
get some idea of what causes this annoying by-product and what can be done
about it.

All electrical units in Germany must be properly equipped to protect the user
against electrical shock. Even if there is a defect, the accessible housing parts
must never carry any electrical voltages. In Germany Protection Classes I, II or
III must be fulfilled.

Danger lurks on our pure, innocent sound signal wherever we go in this


civilized world. Humming motors, transformers, mobile phones,
electrical tooth brushes in short, a whole army of possible interferences.
All kinds of external interferences affect the cables. They can reach us through
the air waves in form of high frequency radio signals, but also through the
normal power supply system in our house, for example fluorescent lamps,
dimmers or the power supply on an amplifier.
Sometimes it is difficult to avoid using long cable connections for PA-systems
between stage and mixing board. Interference signals, i.e. from fluorescent
lamps, can be picked up by these cables and cause humming, buzzing or
crackling.
A significant cause for these problems is the supply voltage required for stereo
components.
All electronics, from effect unit to instrument amplifier, require an operating
voltage of 230 V. If you have ever taken a look at a power cable you have
noticed that it has three wires: Phase = carries the voltage, zero = grounding
at the generating plant, protective conductor (PE) = grounding in the house
(foundation earth).
On most units the conductive parts, surfaces and ground connection for
the cable are internally directly connected to the PE-contact, and thus with
the protective conductor for the power outlet. The purpose of the protective
conductor is to protect. It discharges the voltage if there is a defect on the unit
or the phase touches the housing. This should normally trip a safety breaker.
Even though all we want to do is make music, the subject of the required power
supply unfortunately also concerns a number of legal guidelines that were
not randomly created by some officials just to make our lives more difficult.
The opposite is the case, because it could be a matter of life or death!

Symbol

If you take a close look at the amplifier, the mixing board or the keyboard you
will find a number of manufacturer instructions regarding this subject next to the
type label or in the vicinity of the fan unit plug.

The voltage of 230V; 50 Hz commonly used in Germany


will endanger you life if you come in touch with it. Even
more dangerous is the operation of event systems and
especially lighting systems that are powered by a
so-called three-phase current. Here we are looking at
voltages of 380 V!!! They are guaranteed to be lethal
and this fact is supported by accident statistics.
Everyone who makes music would like to show off his talents at public events.
To do this you need technical equipment. And here the problem starts. Even a
performance at the town hall in front of only 100 150peoples is a public
event.
Here are a few instructions and guidelines with the mere intent to protect
the valued audience and actors on stage from accidents. The organizer of the
event is mostly called for to ensure that an escape route is available for use,
the stage is constructed safely and that appropriate technology interfaces are
available. And now we have come full circle back to the power supply.

The CE-test symbol has been in use for a number of years. It states that the
manufacturer observes the generally applicable Engineering Guidelines and
EMC-Guidelines for production. All units introduced to the market, i.e. that are
sold and operated, must carry the CE-test symbol.
Whats behind it?
Not overly ambitious officers, not in this case!
Basically, the EMC-Guidelines adopted on the European level are very positive.
As described above, our environment is full of electromagnetic interferences,
partially due to technical developments such as Wireless LAN and many
thousands of mobile phones.

ABOUT SOMMER CABLE

www.sommercable.com info@sommercable.com

EMC means ElectroMagnetic Compatibility, and the EMC-Guidelines,


legally adopted in 1992 (EMCG 1992), obligate the manufacturer to
produce products resistant to electromagnetic interference. Furthermore,
the manufacturer must acknowledge adherence to EMCG and its technical
guidelines in a Declaration of Conformity (VDE 0100; VDE 0800; etc.). Only
then he is allowed to apply a clearly visible CE-test symbol onto the unit.
Thats great, because if the unit starts humming and crackling the
manufacturer is at fault! ...Is he not?
No, of course not! The manufacturer is only responsible for the unit he supplies
and will specifically state the environmental requirements and intended purpose
in the respective documentation. Interfaces, environmental temperature and
other operating conditions must comply with manufacturer requirements. Other
measures are the sole responsibility of the operator. If the manufacturer is
clever, and many are just that, he even lists faulty operating conditions and
warns us of the situation in which humming and crackling will occur. So, the
buck is passed back to the operator, the user, the musician.
But there is no doubt that you can hit a tree with your car. Of course, efforts
are taken to prevent just that by driving and operating a car in compliance with
the technical specifications for the vehicle. Besides, we learned the traffic rules
when we got our license and most of us drive accordingly. Those who drive
through a red light or are caught driving 100km/h / 62mph, where only
60km/h / 37mph are allowed, must suffer the consequences. In traffic we
all know that hitting a tree is the result of faulty operation and a traffic ticket is
documented proof that we have neglected to observe valid rules.

How does the sound meet the speaker, or...

The proper cable!


Lets first start with the instrument, the guitar, the bass, and the keyboard.
Single wire, shielded audio cables are mostly used on stage to connect
instruments and amplifiers. External voltage will cause interference even with
short cable length. The cable shielding consists of a wire mesh or foil that
completely covers the actual conductor. The wire shielding protects a sound
cable against interference caused by electrical and electro-magnetic fields.
But the problem for a single-wire shielded cable is that we only have one
pure signal cable (+), while the () phase is guided along the outside of
the shielding. That works as long as the interference is low. The shielding
simultaneously is the second conductor required for the power circuit.

For the transmission of audio signal with single-wire


shielded cables fault-free transmission is limited to
cables only a few meters long.

Unbalanced cable connections


Unbalanced cables are single-wire audio cables with an inside conductor and
outside wire braiding. The plug only requires two contacts (phase and
shielding).

The same is true on stage: If the system hums or we suffer an electrical shock
this is either due to faulty operation or non-observance of the rules. And the
consequences of an electrical shock can be much more severe that the 4 weeks
without a license after ignoring a red light.
If you are in doubt about whether your frequently used
system is free of faults, you should consult an electrotechnical specialist. The cost for such a service is far less
than the consequent cost of a power failure in public. All
who make music to earn a living must have their electrical
equipment checked periodically!
This short demonstration shows that the transmission quality of music systems
does not only depend on brand names, and thus on the manufacturer. Each
mixing board and each speaker system (PA) only operates as properly as
external conditions permit. Cables are needed for everything to work properly
and that is why all who are unhappy about humming and other interference
noises should first check and possibly upgrade their multicore system, the stage
cables for the instruments and the power distribution.
Music is even more fun without humming!

Fig. 1: Schematic view of an unbalanced audio cable


The phase (hot) transmits the audio signal from source to user. The shielding
serves as protection and signal return.
Application:
Unbalanced outputs

Unbalance inputs

Electrical guitars and basses


Keyboards, amplifier line-outs
Speaker connections
Aux-send-paths (mostly)
Direct-outs (mostly)

Instrument amplifiers
Mixing boards line-ins (mostly)
DI-boxes
Effect pedals

Because sound cables are usually connected up to amplifier inputs, they will
also amplify existing interference noises. For example, it is not a good thing if
a sound cable is positioned next to a power cables. The electrical field of the
power cable (230 V/50 Hz) will leak a 50 Hz-humming voltage on our sound
cable, which will be properly amplified at the amplifier input.
Another cause for humming can be found in the fact that each instrument
cable works like a so-called R-C-element (R = resistance, C = capacity) and,
in a certain combination, acts like an antenna. This especially occurs if the
input resistance (impedance) on instrument outputs does not match that of the
amplifier inputs. Some musicians have wondered why Radio Eriwan all of a
sudden started broadcasting on their stereo system.
And finally, on a musicians system a number of units are interconnected with
cables, like via a mixing board. With single-wire shielded cables, now all
existing interference voltages are passed on and amplified via the ground,
finally creating the much loved ground loop.
Ungrounded, balanced cables are used to prevent these types of interferences.

ABOUT SOMMER CABLE

Balanced cable connections


Balanced cables are made up of two conductors and shielding. The signal is
exclusively transmitted by the two inner conductors (hot and cold), whereas
the jacket only serves as shielding. The plugs used here are either XLR- or stereo
jack plugs.

www.sommercable.com info@sommercable.com

Genuine ungrounded balanced cable routing is only possible through the use
of sound transmitters. These transmitters are optimized to handle AF-signals, but
despite the fact that a vast selection is available on the market many of them
can only handle the ungrounded part.
Those who want genuine transmission quality with best possible common mode
rejection have to depend on toroidal core transformers.
Microphone cables to mixing board connections with very low voltage levels
(milli-volt range) are extremely sensitive to interference. This is the reason why it
is very important that they are always ungrounded-balanced.
For a return cable connection from mixing board to amplifier the danger of
interference is not quite as high, because the signal voltage here can still
amount to several volt. Therefore, an ungrounded balanced cable routing is not
absolutely required.

Fig. 2 Schematic view of a balanced audio cable

But complete elimination of an interference risk is only possible with an


ungrounded balanced layout of all cables.

Fig. 3 Construction of a balanced audio cable


Balanced cables consist of shielding (1) and two conductors (Fig.3).
The signal acts independent of shielding of ground. Interferences on the
ground wire do not affect the signal path, thus the term ungrounded. The two
conductors are phased opposite.
This means that the signal in both conductors has a 180 degree phase angle.
Due to this opposite phasing, the co-phasal electro-magnetic inteference signals
that affect the cable from the outside cancel each other out.
For ungrounded balanced transmission, however, it is necessary that the in- and
outputs on the connected units are also balanced. This can be accomplished
electronically, i.e. through the use of balanced input amplifiers with common
mode rejection or output amplifiers with optimized unbalance of the output
voltage (a-conductor to b-conductor).
We can assume that today electronically balanced in- and outputs are superior
to most AF-transmitters, when it comes to transmission parameters such as
frequency response, distortion factor, common mode suppression, and
resistance to over-modulation. Nevertheless it is often necessary to use
balanced cables without grounding.

or to be more precise, you will be able to reach the simple speed of
light with our SCOCTOPUS-G LWL cable. With it you can transmit
your digital audio and video signals across large distances of up to
2 km/6500 ft. (at 100 MBit/s). The multimode gradient fibres with
a core diameter of 50m (insulation/cladding gauge 125 m) are
available in three quality grades for different bandwidths: OM2
500MHz, OM31500MHz (10G max. 300 m), OM4 3500 MHz
(10Gmax. 550m/ 1800 ft.).
OM3 and OM4 fibres meet the demands of modern LWL interfaces
(laser coupling instead of LED) as required by high data rates
> 6 Gbit/s and closely tolerated limit values for the differential mode
delay (max. 100 ps). With OM3 running lengths of up to 300 m are
possible using the 10 Gbit standard (550 m with OM4). The superfine
single-mode/monomode fibre with 9/125 m is ideal for greater
running lengths, especially for permanent installation. Data rates of
50Gbit/s can be transmitted here without the need for a repeater.
The light coupling and fibre connection is more delicate than with the
multimode fibre, which is why the multimode standard is more frequently
used for mobile applications.

NEW!

The SCOCTOPUS-G is perfect for underground laying (PE version),


the PUR version is reelable, flame-retardant according to IEC332-1
and ideally suited for mobile applications. For permanent indoor and
outdoor installations we recommend the UV-resistant FRNC/LSZH
version. The Breakout and Mini Breakout LWL lines can be used for
indoor floor applications and rack cabling.
The bending radius should not come below the 10-fold
gauge.

All 4-fibre variants can be


easily finished using our HICON
HIFIBER4MC Field LWL Quad
Connector. Pre-wired LWL systems
(STII, SC or LC) can be found in the
Premade Cables and Multicore &
Distribution Systems
sections.

The 4-fibre PUR version is also available with a robust twin jack
incl. special protective banding with water pressure
compensation (50 m/160 ft. max. water depth) and aramid
fibers for optimum strain relief. The jacket is dirt-repellant and
cleans exceedingly well. Ideal for demanding off-road applications.

Who would have guessed...

Cat-Mobile is not a roaming cat...

that the colourful fibre-optic bundles from the 1970s


would someday also be used to transmit digital audio
signals? Contrary to the common cheap fibres with approx.
0.4dB/m/0.122 dB/ft. that already reach a critical range
above 6 m, the
SC-OCTOPUS is a high-quality cable with an attenuation
value of less than 0.16 dB per meter/0.049 dB per feet, thus
offering safe transmission properties even for longer distances.

but a CAT.5 PUR Twisted Pair for mobile and movable applications!
The SCMERCATOR CAT.5 PUR is the perfect cable for mobile and
movable outdoor applications. On the cable drum, in the OB van, on
cable slides and even in cable carriers it will stand out with its high
bending cycles and great durability.
The halogen-free and flame-retardant PUR jacket (according to
IEC60332.1) makes it extremely notch- and cold-resistant. A silicone-like
hose on the stranded wire pairs guarantees lasting transmission quality
and optimal tread resistance.
Of course, the cable is RJ45-compatible. Its smallest bending radius is
40 mm/1.6 and according to the editorial staff at Ethersound, the
maximum transmission length is 67 m/220 ft..

With a bending radius of only 40 mm/1.6 the SCOCTOPUS


can be installed even in small spaces. The optimum wavelength
is 660 nm (numerical aperture = 0.50).

and that precisely describes the strong points of the SCMERCATOR


EXTEND. Owing to its simple construction and the consistent twist pitch,
minimal runtime differences between the wire pairs are guaranteed.
This feature, commonly known as SKEW FREE, predestines this cable
for applications in the field of video and KVM extenders. The basic
colours of the VGA signal - red, green and blue - are each transmitted
in a balanced mode through individual wire pairs. Runtime differences
between the wire pairs result in a lagged transmission of the individual
colour signals, producing a distorted rendition of the overall signal
which results in colour shifts, colour fringes. The 4th wire pair will carry
the SYNC, keyboard and mouse signals as well as RS232, USB and
the audio signal with professional KVM extenders (analogue or digital,
depending on manufacturer).
SCMERCATOREXTEND has no screen, as unshielded cables supply
the best image results for these applications. The flexible jacket is made
of flame-retardant PVC pursuant to IEC 60332-1.

We supply a high-quality 4-twisted pair CAT version with a short twist


pitch and a durable FRNC jacket. The CAT.6a distinguishes itself from
the CAT.5e cable by a higher transmission frequency of 500 MHz
(EN50173-1, EN 50288-5-1, IEC 61156-5, ISO/IEC 11801-2ed,
TIA/EIA 568-B.2-10 Draft 5.0) which is achieved by a special
insulation of the opposite wire pairs.
The SCMERCATOR CAT.6a has been designed for 10 Gbit
(10GBASE-T) and is downward compatible with all existing network
protocols (10/100/1000 Mbit). Thus the SCMERCATOR CAT.6a
can also be used for CAT.5 (100 MHz), CAT.5e (250 MHz) and
CAT.6 (350 MHz) transmissions.
For mobile CAT.6 and CAT.6a applications we recommend our
SCMERCATOR CAT.7 PUR,

The MERCATOR CAT.7 PUR is the perfect cable


for mobile outdoor transmissions of digital audio or
network signals, e.g. for use in OB vans. Ethersound
signals can be transmitted easily over > 75 m / 250 ft..
Its halogen-free, flame-retardant PUR jacket (according
to IEC60332.1) is extremely notch- and tread-resistant,
cold-flexible and easy to reel. The wires are fitted with
a foam-skin PE insulation and shielded in pairs with an
AL-PT foil (PimF). The overall screen consists of copper
braiding plus fleece. This ensures optimal transmission
properties over long distances.
The robust MERCATOR CAT.7 PUR XL with its large
wire cross-section (AWG23) is ideal for extremely long
transmission distances of up to 125 m / 410 ft. for
EtherSound signals. Due to its dual jacket design the
heavy-duty CAT.6-PUR variant MERCATOR CAT.6
SUPERFLEX achieves an extremely high flexibility, as it
is appreciated by our customers. Ideal for the daily use
on the road.

in one cable. The SCASTRAL-HYBRID combines a SAT cable, a


CAT line and a central cable duct for an LWL fibre optic line. Ideal for
building networks in multi-family houses including DSL/telephone line
distribution and the TV multiswitch for each apartment unit.
The HDTV SAT cable with an excellent shielding factor of 120 dB
has a patented construction which uses individual carbon screens
around the solid wire and the insulation plus a dual shielding made
of polyester foil and a braided copper mesh. This anti-aging design
prevents material fatigue and guarantees constant, low damping
values for decades to come.
With the fibreglass option (OM2, OM3, OM4 single fibres on
request) you are perfectly geared for current and upcoming 40 Gbit
or 100 Gbit transmissions.

is what we did with the SCMERCATOR 4x CAT.7. Here we have


packed no less than four CAT.7 lines in a highly flexible and robust
Strong PVC jacket.
Each of the network lines is shielded against external interferences by
an overall screen made of a braided copper mesh plus a foil screen
per wire pair (PimF).
With the 10 Gbit-capable SCMERCATOR 4x CAT.7 up to
4 high-speed ethernet or compatible signals can be transmitted
simultaneously.

APPLICATION:
SAT + network combi line with fibre channel
For intelligent home cabling; professional HD applications

AQUA
All cables marked with the
AQUA button are longitudinally watertight
up to 20bars of water pressure or
transversely watertight (AQUA MARINEX
series). The special PUR-jacket keeps water
and other fluids from penetrating and prevents
longitudinal dispersion in case of cable damages.
The watertight jacket is also robust enough to
handle the installation of high-pressure end

sockets inevitably needed to prevent moisture


from penetrating.
Due to the combination of a special seawater
resistant PUR jacket and a protective band,
the AQUA MARINEX cable series can be
permanently laid in water depths. Penetrating
water not only speeds up the oxidation process,
but will, due to the capillary action, alter the
damping and other relevant electrical values.

Here, video cables and other coaxial cable types


are especially jeopardised, e.g. on monitoring
cameras or monitors.
From an order quantity of 2000 m/6500 ft.
almost all of our cables can be made with a
longitudinally or transversely watertight jacket.

Unbending and yet bendable ...

about the new AQUA MARINEX microphone cable for


permanent under water usage. The AQUA MARINEX microphone
and AES/EBU cable is the standard installation cable in wet areas
such as aquaparks or water oases. It does not only ensure an
excellent audio transmission, but also enables the triggering of
visual effects.
Particularly for long-time events like e.g. lake night festivals,
Christmas markets, sport events, in the theatre sector or in the
demanding OB van technology the AQUAMARINEX provides
the ideal connection.
To withstand the huge water pressure as well as the mechanical
and electrical influences, we have additionally stabilised the wires
internally and fitted with two tight copper braidings which are
insulated against each other, i.e. for reasons of safety one screen
can be linked with the shell of the XLR connector. Of course, the
cables may also be used for standard PA applications. They are a
bit stiffer than conventional PVC cables, but almost indestructible on
the other hand.

is our new AQUA MARINEX speaker cables for


permanent underwater use. Initially this robust cable was
developed for use in theme or amusement parks. However, it
also enjoys a great popularity in the installation of longtime
outdoor events such as Christmas fairs, lake festivals or
sports events under extremely adverse conditions (e.g.
equestrian events).
We have additionally stabilised the wires within and
coated them with a tight copper braiding, so that the
AQUAMARINEX can withstand even high water pressure
as well as mechanical and electrical influences. The cables
can also be used in the live PA business, of course, but they
are somewhat stiffer than standard PVC cables, yet super
rugged.

Expensive hobbies do not necessarily require.

Deep sea doesnt mean deep look

an expensive cable. This cable was initially developed for the installation
in boat building. The AQUA MARINEX video cable is frequently
used for installations on speedboats or ships to connect e.g. audio
components or video surveillance monitors.
The 0.6L/3.7 / AWG23 (0.024) cable is small in diameter and has an
insulation of solid PE, which makes it suitable for permanent underwater
use and tolerant against high water pressure.
Owing to its assymetrical construction the AQUA MARINEX can also
be used as an instrument lead or AF phono cable, as can be seen more
and more often e.g. on luxury motor- or speedboats or yachts. Ideally
these virtually indestructible cables have a black UV-resistant outer
jacket, it is possible to paint over them using wall paint without affecting
neither its functionality nor the finish.

for the loss-free picture transmission in deep waters depths is not only a
challenge for the diver, but for a cable as well.
The 1.2L/4.8 / AWG18 (0.042) version is the HD-SDI variant of the
AQUA MARINEX 0.6L/3.7 / AWG23 (0.024), but with a gasinjected insulation and double shielding, for high-resolution full HD picture
formats and longer transmission distances. It is designed for permanent
use in a maximum water depth of 50 m/160 ft., where it defies all kinds
of attacks from small aquatic life and excessive water pressure.
Due to its asymmetrical construction the AQUA MARINEX may also
be used as an instrument or AF phono cable. It has a black UV-resistant
outer jacket, which can be readily overpainted with wall paint without
affecting neither functionality nor finish.

HICON is a German company which produces highquality connectors and components not only in Germany,
but other European countries and in Asia (Taiwan).

HICON is regarded as being very innovative,


the company also produces complex custom
solutions for the media technology sector.
HICON offers a huge variety of high-quality
connectors at fair prices. By the way, HICON connectors
are well known for their countless numbers of plug cycles
and an easy handling, this is why they are already used
at countless TV and broadcasting stations.
To ensure a long-lasting and dependable quality,
the mating cycles are tested
with an automatic machine
custom-made by
SOMMERTECHNIK.

YEAR

WARRANTY

We offer a 5-year warranty


on HICON connectors!

Before buying a connector, one should always make sure to purchase


brand quality, because inferior connectors often have high contact impedances,
thus busting the benefits of a good cable.
Important facts to look out for:
A decent gold-plating or coating (cheap connectors often have only
a gold-coloured lacquer finish!)
A massive pin with no gaps due to rivets, pressing etc.
Low contact resistances

As of now HICON will supply a new, super robust


plug housing and the matching panel socket for
all RJ45 connectors (CAT.5e, CAT.6a). The housing
and closing cap are made of metal, the connector has
a reliable strain relief and can take up to AWG22. The
robust sleeve support can be fitted with colour code
rings.
Of course we will supply these connectors also in
finished versions with the corresponding rugged
SOMMER CABLE CAT lines.

Let there be light

The HICON HI-FIBER4-MC cable plug can be fitted with up to four


LCconnectors which are assembled and pushed into the quad fixture
after inserting the cable. The protective cap and a spring-loaded
protection sleeve will save the sensitive fibre system from dirt and
damages.

Our road-proof HICON HI-FIBER connection


system is based on four optical LC fibre optical
lines which are protected by a robust,
compact metal housing technology. It
consists of a cable plug and a panel
socket in the compact D-shape format,
which can also be used as a universal
cable extension coupling (cascading).

More information can be found on the following pages


(HICON Connectors) or under www.sommercable.com or

With the HICON MKII series the pins are


silver-plated and hence can be soldered
even faster and easier.

HICON XLR CABLE CONNECTORS

The HICON connectors come over big in


the audio and industry sector. Our customers
value the plain design, the high quality and
the serious price structure.
The HIXCM3 and HI-XCF3 Designed in
Germany XLR connectors of the PRO series
are very robust, exceedingly well crafted,
have a reliable 6-jaw chuck strain relief and
are quick and very easy to solder.
The standard strain relief (for cable from
4.0 mm to 8.5 mm) offers important benefits
over other systems:

HICON BASIC standard


strain relief systems

The strain relief force is about twice as high


as in conventional systems, yet the cable is
still being protected!
Even with large cable diameters the force
of the chuck jaws is spread over a greater
area, whereas with other products the soft
PVC of the microphone cables is often
squeezed out at the side.
For cable diameters < 4 mm please order the
HI-XSR40 strain relief accessory.
The HI-X3CM-G and HIX3CF-G versions
come with both strain reliefs for cable
from 2.0 mm to 8.5 mm. Perfect for a flexible
on-site assembly with installations!

New to our product line are the economically


priced, very compact BASIC versions
HI-X3CM-V and HI-X3CF-V for the
assembly of budget audio cables which are
fitted with a standard 3-jaw chuck strain relief,
nickel-plated or black, a non-conductive metal
shell, a robust plastic cap and a transparent
ring for subsequent labelling.
We offer you a 5-year warranty
on the HICON XLR connectors.

on the following pages under the Audio

HICON XLR connector HI-MARLIN, splash- and dustproof IP67*

A true all-rounder

These HICON HI-MARLIN XLR connectors,


which are splash- and dustproof according to
IP67*, repel a direct water jet or infiltrating
moisture and may even lay directly in the water
without impairing its function.
Many new cables of the professional audio
technology sector have a gas-injected foam
insulation, which is why standard chuck strain
reliefs are not ideal. They would squash the
delicate wire insulations, thereby affecting the
electrical values. Here the lamellar seal with
internal grommet offers the perfect solution. The
pressure of the strain relief is evenly spread over
the entire cable diameter and
squeezes no bumps into the
jacket and insulation material.

Special emphasis is placed on the locking device,


which is very convenient and extremely durable.
It has no long spring travels and the pressure
spring-loaded mechanism is located in the locking
knob instead of the contact base, as is usually the
case. This also guarantees an easy and fuss-free
mounting or cable assembly.
These connectors are loyal companions in
particularly wet situations such as the installation
in leisure parks, near the coast, in ship and boat
building, with outdoor festivities like Christmas
markets, funfairs, skiing events, in sediment
technology etc.
The HICON HI-MARLIN XLR connectors
are salt water and UV-resistant. Available in
3- and 5-pole versions and also as waterresistant microphone or AES/EBU cable,
ready for connection, see chapter Readymade Cables.

APPLICATIONS
Installation at outdoor events, in ship and boat
building, skiing events etc.
Permanent connections in coastal areas
PRODUCT ADVANTAGES
No infiltration of water, dirt, moisture, sand
Splash- and dustproof according to IP67*
Very good handling with pleasant plug-in
sensation
AES/EBU conform (no vibration contact)
Special cable-protecting strain relief
High mating cycles due to intelligent, zero-wear
locking mechanism
Fast and easy assembly

JACK CONNECTORS

Jack plugs have to satisfy a lot of very diverse


expectations. While the guitarist prefers
a heavy and robust connector, the studio
technician needs a small, inconspicuous
plug that wont take too much space on the
densely populated patchbays.
Especially popular with guitar players is
therefore the black American-type HICON
HI-J63M04 which can easily take a fat
guitar cable or else a speaker cable with a
large diameter.
It is fitted with a robust solid pin and a
dependable clamping strain relief. Because
of their low contact resistances HICON

and instead of the metal cap we now use a
robust sealing cap made of plastic.

A true highlight is the TRICONE XXL jack


connector HI-J63TC-SM for the easy and
fast solderless DIY installation, perfect for all
on-site assemblies.

Furthermore, the new jack connectors


are supplied with transparent rings for a
subsequent labelling or colour coding.

The new HICON HI-J63MP-B and


HI-J63SP-B jack plug connector offers the

RCA/PHONO CONNECTORS
The HICON HI-CM09, HICM13 and
HICM18 RCA/phono connectors have a collet
lock fixture to ensure an ultimate contact quality.
Slightly unscrew the housing, put the plug into
the socket and then rotate the housing backward
again (with HI-CM09 forward). The plug is
held so firmly that it will come off only upon
unscrewing the housing.

Before buying an RCA/phono connector, you


should always make sure to purchase brand
quality, because inferior connectors often have
high contact impedances and bad damping
values, thus busting the benefits of a good
audiocable.
Features of quality connectors:
A decent gold-plating or coating (low-cost
connectors often have only a lacquer finish!)
A massive pin with no gaps due to rivets,
pressing etc.
Low contact resistances

BANANA CONNECTORS and CABLE LUGS

CONNECTORS

The Elektrolabor R-clips developed by


the Hirschmann GmbH company back in
1926, are regarded as the predecessor
of modern banana connectors which owe
their name-giving to the banana-shaped leaf

spring tip. Until today the 4 mm version can


still be found in almost all premium-grade
hifi loudspeaker connections. The HICON
forked cable lugs provide an optimal clamp
contacting on your loudspeaker terminals. All

HICON banana connectors and cable lugs


are hard gold-plated and guarantee lowest
contact resistance values.

ADAPTERS

The HICON audio adapters with their high-quality metal finish


are robust and ideal for the everyday stage work. For the
insulation we use heat-resistant POM and the pin insulation is
made of shock-proof plastic. The latter ensures high numbers of
mating cycles and great durability.

More audio adapters notably individual attenuators


arelisted under Ready-made Cables > Event Technology >
RoadAdapters.

Owing to the high quality of their metal adapters, the


HICON company offers a 5-year warranty!

TOSLINK (OPTICAL)

The TOSLINK connector was developed in 1983 by the


Toshiba company (TOShiba-LINK).
This is a connection standard for optical signal
transmissions with up to 20 Mbit/s which is used today
for the connection digital audio signals in the studio and
home sector, e.g. for linking BluRay, DVD, CD players or
game consoles with home cinema/dts receivers or with
ADAT systems in the studio.

The 3.5 mm mini plug is another FOC connector variant


in the 3.5 mm mini jack format which allows e.g. to tap
multi-channel home cinema signals on certain devices
(such as notebooks).

...for DIY assembly by certified specialists. Joined by the SOMMER CABLE HDMI bulkware SC-TRANSIT
High Speed HDMI with Ethernet, the HDMI plug connector is the perfect solution for applications in
the professional media technology and in the home entertainment sector.
The solder lugs sit on a pc board with a large contact face to prevent the often fragile boards of the HDMI
devices from being removed. The plug has a cable strain relief with sleeve support. For the DIY assembly
we recommend using a fine 1 mm solder tip.
The comfortable cut and clamp variant is ideal for the on-site installation.

The longer the HDMI transmission lines are, the greater the attenuation losses will be,
eventually leading to a complete signal dropout. In the threshold range the picture
gets more and more wintery with snow sleet, a so-called image noise occurs.
The repeater provides a signal gain over a total distance of 40m. With such
long distances we recommend an HDMI cable cross-section of AWG24. The input
distance may be as long as 5 m at the output another 35 m may be connected.
We point to the fact that the max. transmission distance depends on the quality
of cable and workmanship and also on the signal transmission of the peripheral
equipment.
Optionally a 5 V power supply may be connected (recommendable for transmission
distances beyond 20 m).

The BNC connector (Bayonet Neill Concelman) is one


of the best known coaxial plug types and was invented
in the late 1940s. It is available with a wave impedance
of either 50 or 75 and is mainly used in radio and
video technology, medical engineering and computer
technology. Our connectors meet the specifications
according to IEC 169-8, MIL-C-39012.
The upper limiting frequency of the 50 BNC version
is 4 GHz.
The 75 standard BNC connectors are suitable for
1GHz and the HDTV version for 1.5 GHz applications.

While RG and video connectors
for the analogue world are
relatively easy to make, the
currently demanded 3G/6G/12G
standards require a high-quality
precision manufacturing technology,
which is able to produce in the
lowest of tolerance ranges. The
corresponding machines are made
in Germany for the most part

Being one of a handful of
manufacturers HICON offers not

numerous radio/broadcast/HDTV
transmissions.
The HICON HD-SDI and 6G-SDI
eries features not only a hard
gold-plated pin, but also a hard
gold-plated shielding housing
to keep the skin effect as low as
possible.
The contact pin has a special,
micro-fine volute bevel on the inside
to lock the copper conductor after
the crimping and thus ensures
an excellent bonding. The hard
gold-plating and the axial contact
pressure guarantee thousands of
mating cycles and withstand even
the most adverse conditions and
temperature differences, as they
often prevail outdoors or in the
broadcast field transmission.

RJ45

CONNECTORS

The RJ45 plug (ISO/IEC 11801) was special-designed


for the data transmission in networks, but has also become
indispensable in the digital audio and video transmission
domains and is now underway towards a universal connector
for the network (10BaseT, 100BaseTX, GBit-Ethernet) and
media technology sectors.

For these RJ45 connectors (exception: RJ45CMXL-GR)


HICON offers a sturdy protective housing system for mobile
applications.
Suitable surface- and flush-mounted frames can be found in under
Multicore and Distribution Systems > Network sockets and also
under Modular Systems > SYSWALL.

Besides the selected RJ45 quality connectors from HIROSE,


we offer you the ONESIZE universal connectors which can
be mounted fast and easily using a tool-free IDC clamping/
cutting system. Ideal for the mobile field and road use, but also
for connecting solutions with large cable gauges over long
transmission distances, incl. strain relief. Ready to fit all CAT.5,
CAT.6a, CAT.7 patch and installation lines up to AWG22.
Standardised according to ISO/IEC 11801:2002.

Everything is getting easier...


because the HICON HI-FIBER
connector fits on all 4-fibre cables
and with a bit of experience you will
be able to carry out a repair on site
yourself. Our road-proof HICON
HI-FIBER connecting system is based
on 4 LC fibre optical lines that are
protected by a robust, compact metal
housing technology. It consists of a
cable plug and an installation socket
in the compact D flange format which
can also be used as a universal cable
coupling for extension (cascading).
Via the socket one can also link the
HICON HI-FIBER system with a max.
of 4 conventional LC cables (or else
two LC-Duplex lines) and connect it to
existing LC systems or LC/ST, LC/SC
adapters simply plug in LC and youre
ready to go.

The HI-FIBER4-MC cable plug can be fitted with a


max. of 4 LC connectors which are assembled and
pushed into the quad fixture after inserting the cable.
The protective cap and a spring-loaded protection
sleeve will save the sensitive fibre system from dirt and
damages. Simply put the cable plug on the socket
heeding the indentation and lock it by pushing the
push-pull locking ring forward. As strain relief and
cable sleeve support we use the proven standard
cable screw joint (M16 x 1.5) which easily takes up
all common 4-fibre cable gauges from 5 to 9 mm.
(Trademark rights applied for)
If you know already how to assemble LC connectors,
you can finish the HIFIBER4MC as well. However,
we advise you to attend our reasonably-priced halfday seminars on the SOMMER premises, where you
cannot only take home a certificate with you, but also
some tricks and tool recommendations.
Following your certification you will automatically be
admitted to our HI-FIBER supporting network which
every user may call up in the field on our website, e.g.
in case of an emergency.
On the introductory SOMMER CABLE full catalogue pages
you will find suitable 4-fibre cables for installation (PE,
LSZH) and mobile applications (PUR, PMB), see Cables
Bulkware. We also offer you finished HI-FIBER systems in the
sections Ready-made Cables and Multicore & Distribution
Systems.

Your benefits at one glance:


>> Robust, compact field connection

system for optical transmissions


>> Complete with dirt protection cap
>> Comfortable push-pull quick-release

fastener
>> Sealed system with IP68 protection class

in plugged condition
>> High packing density, panel socket in the

D flange format rear mountable


>> Installation socket and universal cable

coupling in one
>> Easy connection to existing LC systems
>> Assembly and revision by any experienced

fibre optic technician (LC)


>> Cost-efficient user assembly tuitions

CAUTION: Avoid by all means direct


eye contact retinal hazard!

These German-made microphone split transformers are custom-manufactured for


SOMMERCABLE and impress by their linearity, little oscillation tendency and low
coil impedances. The housings are designed for print mounting, have a Mu metal
screen and thus guarantee an optimal shielding against interfering signals. We also
supply the matching single pc board for the SOMMER transformers the SOMMER
SPLIT BOARD for DIY assembly. This board is designed both for the 1:1 SPLIT and
the 1:1+1 SPLIT in connection with a NEUTRIK NC3FDH and is also available as a
4-channel version with 30 mm contact spacing for single-channel split solutions up to

allows an extremely high packing density as well as comfortable access options for
plugging in and out.

The robust zinc die-cast housing offers a reliable protection against damages due to
mechanical strain, while the integrated sleeve support ensures a long cable life.
The connectors are water- and dustproof according to IP67 protection class.
They are especially suited for the professional use in studios, OB vans and at major
events.

> SMB/SMC/SMS

The TNC connector is mostly used for transmissions beyond 11 GHz. TNC
connectors are vibration-resistant and used for signal, data and video transmissions.
When mated (mating pattern between plug and socket), they comply with the IP68
protection class standard. Nearly all other common TNC types can be delivered
within a few days.

SMB connectors feature a snap-on technology to ensure a fast and yet safe
connection and can be used for frequencies of up to 4 GHz. We stock the most
common SMA and SMB types and will gladly offer them to you prefabricated as
well. SMC connectors have vibration-resistant bolted connections and can be used
for frequencies of up to 10 GHz.
SMS connectors are push-in connectors which require very little push and pull forces.
They can be used for frequencies of up to 4 GHz. SMS and SMC connectors are
available on request.

> SMA
These connectors represent the most dependable connectors in the fields of mobile
radio, W-LAN, satellite technology and in metrology. SMA connectors have the
specific wave impedance of 50 and function in a frequency range of 18 GHz.

ILME MULTIPIN CONNECTORS

Quick and chic


are the new contact inserts of the SQUICH series. They can be assembled easily
and fast, no tools required, suitable for conductor gauges between 0.14 mm and
2.5 mm. Each contact chamber has been assigned a locking element with a cage
clamp terminal. When closed, it makes a secure and reliable connection for the
conductor. The lock can simply be opened again with a screwdriver, if necessary.
Operating temperature range: 40 C to +125 C

1. Insert conductor

The ILME multipin rectangular connectors are standardised and compatible with
all common rectangular connectors on the market (Harting etc.). On the following
pages you will find a small, reasonable selection of the most widespread multipin
connectors. We have stocked the entire ILME product range and also
articles not listed here e.g. metric versions. Just ask.
The products labelled with the SYSBOXX logo are compatible with our modular
system box. For more information see the sections on Multicore Systems and
Hardware & Accessories.

SUB-D FCT

Connections are their business


and this is why FCT is one of the best-established companies on the German and
European market when it comes to D-Sub and other connection types. There is also
an FCT production plant in USA.
We have included their products in our catalogue because FCT connectors can be
found in virtually every professional environment of the audio branch. They are used
e.g. in the broadcasting sector, in the mixing console construction, in communications
and data technology or some specified even with numerous companies.

We supply the FCT D-Sub pin inserts and socket inserts resp. with a steel shell and a
glass fibre reinforced thermoplast insulator according to UL94V-0 and a solder bath
connection.
The elaborate full metal shells are made of robust zinc die-cast with a high-grade
nickel-plating. Using a catch spring system and pre-assembled locking screws the
housings are fast and easily mounted. The shells have a straight cable outlet with a
dependable strain relief, a sleeve support is included. Optionally the FCT shells are
also available in plastic.

EDAC

The classic...
3

among the multipins is the EDAC-516 plug connector, this can still be seen today, mainly
in the studio sector.
It consists of a contact strip with a screw or a nut as counterpart. The coolest thing is that
you need only one contact version/size, which must be inserted horizontally or vertically
into the socket of the contact strips.
The contacts are available either as solder or crimp versions. The gold-plated connection is
made by interlocking the horizontal and vertical contact forks.
There are 4 types of plug connectors:
A: Contact strip male with screw all contacts inserted horizontally
B: Contact strip male with nut all contacts inserted horizontally
C: Contact strip female with screw all contacts inserted vertically
D: Contact strip female with nut all contacts inserted vertically
Here only A and D or B and C resp. will fit together

We deliver the most widely used 56-pole version from stock.

SCHUKO IEC POWER CONNECTORS/CEE/MISCELLANEOUS

A hot potato...
are the load connectors, should their quality be questionable. We have compiled for
you a high-class made in Germany range of SCHUKO and CEE connectors
by Mennekes with excellent electrical and mechanical properties for the 230 V and
400 V technology.

The logic behind the chaos
When perusing the articles one by one, our
article numbers for premade cables and systems
may seem a bit chaotic. But actually you will
soon discover a logical pattern.

The article number consists of the following


groups, so with a little practice you can easily
configure your desired cable. Refer to the
existing catalogue article numbers and send us
a special request, should you not find it in the

few minutes, and in most instances during your
telephone call.

RED ZILK

Richard rocks
PREMADE CABLES

...with one of the most interesting guitar cables ever made. For
our endorser RichardZ. Kruspe, guitarist from the band
RAMMSTEIN, weve cooked up something special with the
RED ZILK and MATT BLACK design.
This soft and highly flexible guitar cable with a very
attractive finish stands out by outer and inner
values. It is surrounded by a 7.5 mm thick jacket either in
velvety, semi-transparent RED ZILK or alternatively
in deep MATT BLACK. For the interior construction we
use concentrically stranded litz wires of oxygen-free
class N6 (OFC 99.9999%) Chile copper and a GAS
INJECTEDPE insulation, which ensures a low capacitance
and a low-loss transmission. The cable has a 100%
shielding provided by a tight helical copper mesh screen in
combination with the carbon semiconductor.
The Richard Z. Kruspe Signature Cable is available in two
variants: first with our gold-plated HICON HI-J63M03-G
high-end full metal jack plug on either side, and second
with the flat, angled HICON HIJ63MA05 gold tip
plug, referred to as the pancake plug from insiders.

LETS MAKE CRIMPING DOUBLE SURE!

PREMADE CABLES

A gas-free crimped connection is corrosion-proof and


provides a safe, durable mechanical and electrical
bonding. Thats the reason why this connection variant
has gained acceptance notably in the ultra-sensitive
HF sector as well as in professional broadcasting. This
spurred us on to re-work our TRICONE jack plug
and give it gold tip and a strong hexagonal double
crimping which similar to the BNC crimping
contacts the foldback screen and establishes a frictionlocked connection.
As matching cables we recommend our
TRICONEXXL and a special version of the SPIRIT
cable series which offer a thick insulation, excellent

The benefits at one glance:

electrical data and mechanical stability. The perfect


combination for the space-saving connection of floor
pedals is provided by the version with the superflat
HIJ63MA05 jack.

The first-aid kit!


This could cause the sound engineer to collapse: during the soundcheck
the only instrument cable was shattered by the guitarist. The good thing is
he was clever enough to bring the SOMMERly TRICONE(0.50mm) or
SPIRITXS(0.75mm) First-Aid Kit to the gig!
Alright, here we go:
Quickly cut the cable to the desired length, strip 5 mm off the jacket at both
ends, fold the braided screen back, slide the black sleeve onto the cable, push
the plugs onto the cable ends and tighten them firmly. As opposed to customary
solutions with grub screws, this is a form-fit, cable-protecting strain relief with
high retention forces. A comprehensive instruction guide is supplied with the
set. Amust-have for every versatile event technician. Practical for
solder-shy musicians and all impromptu cabling guys, too.

VINTAGE STYLE

SC-CLASSIQUE
True classics...
of blues and rock are hip again like the band Colosseum that enchants us as
much as it did back then.
Clem Clempson, the guitarist of the band (uses SOMMER products), who also
toured with other legendary rock bands like Humble Pie, Jack Bruce, Roger
Chapman or Chris de Burgh, keeps showing what can be done with a mere six
strings on a guitar.
Today just like in the good old days, real musicians count on proven, down-to-earth
craftsmanship and material. The vintage style cable with its period tweed braiding is
also in demand in the cable business for use on amp or guitar. Its visual appearance
has stayed the same, but inside the proven components are more reliable,
technically sophisticated and tougher.
The core is an inner conductor with a cross-section of 0.50 mm. It consists of 28 fine
copper litz wires to guarantee pure listening pleasure for lengths even exceeding
20m, this is considered by fine-eared musicians a critical length. The cable is
rounded off by a thick insulation of foamed and lacquered PE plus a dense, tinned
copper mesh screen.
An eye catcher is the additional fabric which gives the SCCLASSIQUE its vintage
look. It even sounds like a cable from that era:
The SCCLASSIQUE convinces its a warm, fat sound and crystal clear highs. This is
the blues of tomorrow.
We supply the SCCLASSIQUE with HICON vintage connectors of American
design, with a dependable strain relief and a heavy, massive pin one of the first on
the market.

SCSPIRIT, SCSPIRIT XXL

The SCSPIRIT is the dream of all guitarists. Meanwhile used by most professional
musicians around the world, it is reputed as the ultimate reference on the instrument
cable market. Due to the special stranding technique, the large wire cross-section of
1 x 0.50 mm (!) or 1 x 0.75 mm (SC-SPIRIT XXL) and the dual shielding
(semiconductive conductor + copper screen) there is very little on the world market to
compete with it.
Despite the excellent insulation the black SCSPIRIT cable is easy to reel without
torsion. We supply it either with black NEUTRIK NP2X-BAG jack plugs or with the

outstanding HICON HIJ63M04 jack plugs for the most demanding studio and
professional live applications. New to the range is the smoke-coloured noble version
SCSPIRIT XXL with the exquisite real gold-plated HICON HIJ63M03-G jack
plugs and the NEUTRIK silent jack plug which prevents the popping when the
cable is plugged in.

GRINDYCOP BEAST The polished cable


This professional high-end cable with the unique design is made of polished copper
as it is used for high-quality industry transformers. To increase the conductivity
the copper surface (OFC Class 6, degree of purity 99.9999 %) is polished and
finished with a conductor insulation made of a special, surface-refined electroinsulation lacquer. The jacket consists of an extremely robust, adhesion-free and UVresistant PVC. The sound advantage of this design is the extremely fast transmission
capability (ideal for attacks), powerful mids, punchy sub lows and an analytical

transmission. Also available is the splitable GRINDYCOP TWINBEAST twin


cable version for stereo instruments/keyboards. This one can easily handle both the
deep frequencies from analogue devices and also the piercing highs from virtual
synthesizers.

SCMERCATOR PUR

Guitar goes digital


Besides the usual audio jack sockets, some makers of guitars and effects devices like
e.g. Line6 also offer the RJ45 interface as connecting option. For this purpose the
following two robust, reelable and flexible SCMERCATOR PUR CAT.7 cables are
recommended.
We fit them with the sturdy all metal RJ45C6XL connector or with the
HIROSE-RJ45 plug and RJ45 protecting shell with XLR design to match the
NEUTRIK (CAT.5e) and HICON RJ45 panel-mount sockets.
The cables are available in violet, grey and black. Please add colour code to the
order number, see table. Drum versions see the following pages.

TWINAXIAL

We use the highly flexible MERIDIAN OFC loudspeaker cable with excellent
reeling properties, superfine litz wires (0.15 mm) and high bending cycles. Generally
we do not offer cables with a free end. For this purpose a cable with the desired
connector may be spliced and stripped to obtain two separate cables for the right

and left channel. Greater lengths are available on request. (Example: an


ME25225-2000 will make two 10 m Speakon cables, each with one free end).
For speaker system cabling with NL8, CA-COM, SOCA etc. please see the chapter
on Multicore & Distribution Systems.

DJ will then generally speak of a cable problem. The
experienced pro DJ knows that in almost 95 % of all
cases annoying noises from the sound system arise from
poor cables or plug connections.
Highly problematic in this context are unshielded
plastic RCA connectors and badly shielded lines. Of
crucial importance for the top sound at an event are
cables with a tight litz stranding, so that they can bear
high bending cycles and will not break at the fragile
spot of the sleeve protection. Likewise indispensable
is a high-quality, chalk-free cable jacket compound to
avoid premature aging due to the sometimes enormous

SCPRIMUS + SCSOURCE

The SCPRIMUS is the perfect cable for the ambitious stage and sound
technician. It has a large wire cross-section of 2 x 0.50 mm2 and is thus suitable
for very long distances. The strong PVC-jacket makes it very easy to reel and it is
extremely robust. As an alternative we also offer the highly flexible SCSOURCE
with superfine single litz wires in broadcasting quality. Both cables have a dual
shielding (aluminised fleece plus braided copper mesh screen) with 100 %

BINARY 234 AES/EBU MKII

These premade cables are the perfect choice for the transmission of the 110
AES/EBU 2 DMX512 data format. Important note: the use of a standard
microphone cable is not recommended due to data and information losses
(caused by reflections at the end of the conductor which may occur as a result
of line mismatch). In the lighting domain data losses cause a total jam with signal
transmissions or the control of moving lights systems. The very affordable price of
this cable should make it easy to switch from a standard microphone cable to a
good AES/EBU cable.
Our AES/EBU cable guarantees the error-free data transfer even over longer

distances of up to 100 metres. We use the BINARY 234 AES/EBU MKII cable
with 100 % shielding and black HICON XLR connectors in a robust full metal
version or NEUTRIK XLR connectors. For the DMX line with return channel we use
our BINARY 434 DMX512 cable with dual shielding (braided cross mesh + foil)
and black 5pole connectors from HICON or NEUTRIK. We can also supply the
BINARY 234 AES/EBU MKII with 5-pole connectors with 3 pins assigned. If not
stated otherwise, we supply the cable in black.
More adapter cables are listed at the end of the Live Sound section.

A round thing...
Premade cable drum systems are not only practical and ensure continuous
mobility, they are also very gentle to the cable.
A cable drum guarantees a long service life and easy handling, e.g. with
outdoor transmissions, broadcasting or even at sporting and school events.
We supply a light-weight and very sturdy HT300K cable drum made by SCHILL.
It is loaded with our stage-proof and flexible 2- or 4-wire and also DMX-capable

BINARY 234 or 434 AES/EBU MKII cable (black or blue), which due to its
large wire cross-section of 2 or 4 x0.34 mm is ideal for long distances. The drum
has a front panel with a NEUTRIK panel-mount XLR plug, the cable is terminated
with a XLR cable sockert. For pin allocation see previous pages under BINARY
234 AES/EBU MKII.

Active compact loudspeakers...


enjoy an ever growing popularity. They can be used as surround speakers in cinema
installations, control monitors or frontfill, for sound applications in churches or as
ultra-compact stage monitors. The built-in amplifier electronics is supplied with power
and signal through only 1 connector like e.g. in the low-voltage/intelligent DC
products from MeyerSound (MM-4XP, UPM-1XP, UPJunior-XP etc.).

Our KOLORITH MINI is optimised for use with the EN3 connector, yet highly
flexible and very robust. The 2 x 1.0 mm power supply wires ensure a safe
operation up to 90 m cable length between power supply and speaker.
In addition to the ready-made cables with EN3 connector we also offer adapters
and cables with 5-pole XLR connectors.

super solid GLANDMASTER splice
adapter. The breakout point is extremely
durable, 100% impermeable and fitted
with a perfect strain relief. The biggest
advantage of these articles is the free
selection of both the position
and length of the splice. Thus the
adapters are perfectly configurable to
any case of application.

and once again a rented sound system belonging to a local organizer offers the
most adventurous connections that just wont match with our equipment. With our
handy ROAD ADAPTERS you are not bothered with time-consuming soldering
arias and bricolage before the soundcheck or gig. Our ROAD ADAPTERS
have a 15cm (6) cable and are therefore extremely flexible, especially where
rigid adapters will fail due to their installation depth. They fit into the narrowest of
rack connections and almost any connection standard. We have surrounded the
connection lead of our ROAD ADAPTERS with an unshrinked transparent shrink-on
tube (except for the free end version) so that you can label your adapter as you
please.
On request we supply other cable lengths and variants. Give us a call.

Today almost every musician actually needs electricity where ever her is positioned
on stage, be it the backline, for personal involved in monitoring or simply for the
lamp for the music stand. The electricity demand in lighting technology is changing.
More and more spotlights require a constant current, plus a control signal.
With our new SV series we have the answer to those needs. The solid housing
of 2 mm sheet steel has our proven scratchproof surface, two M10 flying

points and of modular construction. It can be fitted laterally with different


connectors. If you cant find your desired configuration, please contact us.
For the SV series we offer matching ready-made cables with a multitude of connector
combinations for the professional lighting and event technology along with other
load applications. As connectors we only use high-grade quality products from
NEUTRIK, MENNEKES and PCE. For the cable we use TITANEX.

POWER STRIPS

When its flickering...


on the monitors and computers and your keyboards crash, very often the cheap
power strips from the bargain bins of the supermarkets are to blame.
Its particularly hifi devices, computers or keyboards that depend on a reliable,
constant power supply, because already a short pulse can eliminate your
composition or damage components.
Our systems have sound contacts, accurately crimped cable harnesses, a heatresistant, shock-proof enclosure and a dependable fusing.

These systems are not suitable for outdoor use.


(Load cable drum systems can be found in the Hardware & Accessories section.)
We deliver the power strips either in the standard floor or 19 rackmount

FOR STUDIO APPLICATIONS

Generally speaking the demands placed on cables for studio technology


are not the same as those placed on stage and live cables.
For studio cables, great emphasis is placed on good shielding and perfect
audio transmission. This is very important for studio use, as high
interference is almost always expected , this is due to the sophisticated
peripherals (computers, mixers, etc.).
Studio operators dont need cables just for sound, but cables that either
match up to the quality of the studio technology or are even superior. It is very
important that the audio signal is passed on authentically. The following cables
are designed accordingly. Cables for video and conference technology can be found in Chapter Media, Broadcasting and Video
Technology. The respective assignment plans can be found on the last
pages of this
catalogue under Support.

SCGOBLIN / SC-MICRO-STAGE

The SCGOBLIN patch cable is ideal for studio applications as it is really flexible
and, due to its small dimensions, fits well into TT-Phone and mini jack plug connectors.
We supply the SCGOBLIN in combination with HICON mini jacks and also
NEUTRIK TT-Phone, XLR, jack and B-GAUGE connectors. As a more economic
alternative we offer you the Groove version with HICON TT-Phone connectors.

Second there is the model with high-grade HICON or NEUTRIK connectors. The
HICON phono plugs are real gold-plated, have a decent strain relief and a solid,

BINARY 234 AES/EBU MKII

These premade cables are the perfect choice for the transmission of the 110
AES/EBU DMX512 data format. Important note: the use of a standard microphone cable is not recommended due to data and information losses (caused by
the skin effect). In the lighting domain data losses cause a total jam with signal
transmissions or the control of scanner systems. The price of this cable is very
affordable, this makes it easy to switch from a standard microphone cable to a
good AES/EBU cable. Our AES/EBU cable guarantees the error-free data transfer

INFO

AUDIO & DIGITAL MULTICORES, LOOMS


The bigger your choice, the harder you choose...
We offer a comprehensive selection of professionally premade looms for rack
wiring in the studio or for live equipment. As some looms must not meet high
demands or impress with a huge number of mating cycles, we offer 2 or even
3quality grades:

wire/wire capacitance of only 35 pF and triple shielding (helical copper screen +


foil on each wire pair + braided overall copper mesh) it is the absolute reference
connection lead in the studio domain. The SCPEGASUS, too, can either be used
for analogue or (when cross-wired) digital tasks.

For the BASIC quality we use our numbered SCQUANTUM HIGHFLEX studio
or stage multipair and fit it with the lower-priced, very solid HICON standard
connectors.

Please note: Professional users mostly use looms with only 4 or 8 pairs, because
multipairs with more than 8 pairs are very heavy and literally lever out the printed
connections of the panel sockets on some synthesizers, workstations, mixing boards
or other units.
The required configuration set up is listed on the final pages of this catalogue under
Wiring Diagrams.
We gladly accept orders for special assignments and custom made models, either
in writing, by fax or e-mail us at support@sommercable.com.

The PROFESSIONAL quality is supplied with Neutrik connectors. This version


is mainly used in professional studios where technicians demand perfect linear
transmission and perfect shielding. The SCQUANTUM HIGHFLEX complies with
the 110 AES/EBU or DMX standard, making it suitable for both analogue and
digital applications.

For the splice length refer to the Support section.

PREMADE CABLES

With some models we supply extra quality using the SCPEGASUS,


probably the best audio multipair available on the market. The SCPEGASUS is
cross-wired and supplied with gold-plated NEUTRIK XLR connectors. With a

The following cables are special insert looms for mixing consoles with unbalanced
inserts, where Send and Return are combined in a common stereo jack socket on
the console. To connect them to an effects device, the signal has to be split onto
2 single plugs. This is exactly what our looms do. And it inevitably means that one
side is equipped with e.g. 8 stereo jacks and the other side with the corresponding

16 mono jacks or 8 XLR male and 8 XLR female jacks. Important note: The
article number then contains information e.g. 02/04, this indicates
the number of plugs.

SUB-D TASCAM CONFIGURATION and AES/EBU YAMAHA CONFIGURATION

For SUB-D cabling we offer a comprehensive selection of premade looms in various


configurations. We use our flexible 8-pair multipair SCAURA with paired insulation
and Sub-D EMC-conformant all-metal plug connectors made in Germany.
The standard TASCAM configuration complies with the analogue Tascam DA88
standard. It is also used for Yamaha analogue cards and for Digidesign interfaces
as well as for the AES/EBU transmission (Tascam)!
The AES/EBU standard configuration complies with Yamahas digital AES/EBU
2 x 8 channel standard. Please make sure that depending on the units connected,
the respective permissible max. cable length must not be exceeded to ensure an

error-free transmission. Information about the max. permissible cable lengths can be
found in the technical data sheets for the hardware you are using. The respective
assignments can be found on the final pages of this catalogue under Wiring
Diagrams.
We gladly accept orders for special configurations and custom made models, either
in writing, by fax or e-mail us at support@sommercable.com.

FOR BROADCASTING

PREMADE CABLES

On all sides the broadcasting and video technology sector puts extremely high requirements on the connection lines. These must
be very robust, durable and notch-resistant.
Moreover, they should not only withstand
heavy environmental influences, but also be
very easy to handle and clearly labelled.
As the main supplier for almost all
well known broadcasting companies
SOMMERCABLE has a lot of experience
and, in cooperation with their technicians,
developed and compiled a number of
high-quality cables which are successfully
used day in, day out for indoor and outdoor
transmissions. The respective layouts are

SCSOURCE MKII HIGHFLEX

The SCSOURCE MKII HIGHFLEX is the perfect cable for demanding radio
engineers.
It has a wire cross-section of 2 x 0.25 mm2 and superfine 0.05 mm OFC copper litz
wires! It is very easy to reel and guarantees high bending cycles.
The SCSOURCE MKII HIGHFLEX has a dual shielding (aluminised fleece +
braided Cu mesh screen) with 100 % optical coverage and remains totally noiseand pop-free even with problematic requirements. Due to the use of a chalk-free soft
PVC it is very cold-resistant. We supply this cable with gold-plated HICON and
NEUTRIK connectors and a transparent 5 cm shrink-on tube (unshrinked) for your
individual labels.

In combination with the HI-MARLIN XLR connectors, which repel direct water jets
or percolating moisture, there is also a splashproof version available, ideal for use in
amusement parks, in the ship and boat building industry or at outdoor events like e.g.
Christmas markets.
The SCSOURCE MKII HIGHFLEX is available in black. The screen is protected by
an insulating sleeve. For identification purposes we use removable colour code rings.
Please specify desired colour.

CABLE DRUM BNC 75

We supply a light-weight and very robust SCHILL cable drum which has a fixing
brake and a practical carrying handle. It is equipped with our flexible SCVECTOR
video cable which is suitable for outdoor transmission and, because of its 100 %
shielding, (Cu mesh screen + conductive AL/fleece) perfect for long distances with
a very good image transmission. For HD-SDI and 3G-SDI transmissions or extremely
long transmission paths we recommend the drums loaded with the SCVECTOR
PLUS 1.2/4.8 DZ or SCVECTOR PLUS 1.6L/7.3 3G SDI cable types.
The drum is fitted with a front panel and an insulated HICON or NEUTRIK BNC
socket, the cable features a HICON or NEUTRIK BNC connector.
We will gladly accept your written orders for other configurations and custom made
models, either by fax or e-mail at support@sommercable.com.

The cables are available in green and black.

Video cable RGB & RGBHV, BNC p BNC


We supply light-weight and very sturdy SCHILL cable drums. These are loaded with
our flexible TRANSIT video cable which is ideally suited for patch applications and
outdoor transmissions due to the use of fine single litz wires.
The drum has a front panel sheet fitted with three, five or seven colour-coded,
recessed NEUTRIK BNC panel-mount sockets. For better protection of the sockets
the BNC panel is slanted. The cable is fitted with three, five or seven colour-coded
HICON BNC plug connectors. By the way, we purposefully chose drums with a
large inner core to prevent the sensitive insulation on the video cable from getting
damaged.
We also supply a 5-wire version with two additional balanced
audio lines (TRANSIT MOBILE). It is fitted with two optional XLR lines
(NEUTRIK NC3FDL1 and NC3MX).
We gladly accept your written orders for special configurations and custom made
models, either by fax or e-mail at support@sommercable.com.

SCASTRAL

Hardly anyone can imagine that a good antenna cable can have such a dramatic
impact on the TV picture and it is thus depressing to see the poor quality of most
cables supplied with TV sets. In most cases the living-room is cramped with straying
hardware (TV set, video recorder, cordless telephones, computers etc.) and therefore
more and more cables with a good shielding are needed. Often the shielding of
the so-called accessory bell wires has an optical coverage of only 65 %. But
the 100% coverage as it is offered in the following cables is really a must-have!

Especially on TV sets with a screen size larger than 55 cm the picture quality can still
be greatly enhanced using our SCASTRAL cable.
The SCASTRAL BASIC version is fitted with the
1.1/5.0 antenna cable (90 dB) and the HICON
ANT-M and ANT-F antenna plugs.

monitors and beamers with the component output (YUV/RGB) on your AV receiver
or game console or the Scart output on your digital TV receiver.
Please note that the monitor or beamer must be able to process signals in the RGB
or RGBS (= RGB + FBAS) format, otherwise the picture will remain black.
In addition we recommend our DVI/VGA adapter DVS2-FM for the connection to a
DVI-I socket (for more details refer to the Connectors section).

Note: The RGB signal quality with DVI is equivalent to VGA, therefore we only
offer the VGA standard.

RGB (YUV) COMPONENT CABLE

Frustrated about losses?


A YUV cable is also called colour difference cable and contains three separate
unbalanced 75 lines. It is mainly used for connections in video technology (e.g. on
progressive scan projectors) and to connect the DVD player. For transmissions in
the HDTV format we recommend our special-designed SCVECTOR cable.
To obtain a perfect image signal, a transmission distance of 20 m should not be
exceeded. However, if this is inevitable, we recommend selecting the TRANSIT3
version from the Cable Bulkware section. With TRANSIT3 transmission distances
of 50 m and beyond are no longer a problem.
We supply three different types of YUV cables:
The choice is yours either the HICON basic variant, the highly flexible TRANSIT
MINI FLEX round cable with gold-plated, POM-insulated HICON HICM06 RCA
connectors or the flat SCALTERA SPLIT version with gold-plated, PTFE-insulated
HICON HI-CM12 crimp RCA connectors with sleeve support.
The latter is especially well-suited for YUV applications, because a crimp connection
will always guarantee lower contact resistances as opposed to a solder connection,
i.e. losses at the junction between cable and plug are virtually impossible.

APPLICATION:
Connection of DVD players and transmission of PAL / NTSC progressive
signals
PRODUCT BENEFITS:
Shielding with 100 % coverage (AL foil + copper mesh screen)
Very attractively priced and visually appealing
Gold-plated and POM- or PTFE-insulated connectors

orders are not so large have a chance to enjoy this fantastic display stand.
The green interior lighting provides an especially attractive flair and is ideal
for night lighting in the store.
The idea regarding the shape came from our TRICONE connector. This is
apparent when you look at the delta shape of the large three-sided display
and the triangular holes for the blister hooks.
We offer once free of charge, the large display with a premade
cable order to the value of EURO 2500,, the wall display for
an order of EURO 1500, or the compact display with an order
of EURO 700,.

OUR ARTICLE NUMBERS IN THE MULTICORE


& DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS SECTION
The logic behind the chaos
When perusing the articles one by one, our
article numbers for premade cables and systems
may seem a bit chaotic. But actually you will soon
discover a logical pattern.
The article number consists of the following
groups, so with a little practice you can easily
configure your desired cable. Refer to the existing
catalogue article numbers and send us a special
request, should you not find it in the catalogue.
We can give you a price within a few minutes,
and in most instances during your telephone call.

General information

Multicore Systems

Signal sources on the multicore:


Dynamic microphones have a signal output level
between approx. 50dBu and 35dBu at 200
source impedance, depending on the sound pressure
level of the instrument or voice that you need to pick
up. By way of contrast, condenser microphones
have an integrated amplifier which raises the
transmission level to about 40dBu to 30dBu. In
this case the multicore must also transmit the required
48VDC phantom power provided by the console. A
good grounding is essential in this context.
DI-Boxen are used on stage as an interface
between high-level LINE outputs e.g. from keyboards
or instrument amplifiers. Depending on the source,
DI boxes have an output level of about 40dBu to
20dBu. The built-in transformer provides a potential
isolation and an impedance matching the console
input.
First of all: in a multicore cable of the category
wired and shielded as braided pairs, a
crosstalk effect cannot be eliminated completely,
but is hardly to be expected if you abide by a
consistently balanced cabling between source and
mixing board. Depending on the product and price
range, mixing consoles have a crosstalk damping
of max. 90dB between single channels (at 1kHz
and nominal level). The multicore system neednt
be superior, but you should also make sure that it
doesnt get lower. The weak spot is the connector
at the end of the multicore system. Due to its design
and the contact placement, crosstalk will occur here
for physical reasons. However, sufficient crosstalk
damping values are achieved within the connectors
we use, they are far superior to most other mixing
consoles.

The cable shields centrally joined or


separately implemented?
For the sheer reason of crosstalk damping
improvement we give preference to a separate
grounding.
In a metaphorical sense the multicore is an extension
link for balanced audio lines which is to connect
the audio sources up on stage to the inputs of the
mixing desk in the hall. Therefore it seems quite
logical and sensible if we stick to a separate
shielding on the extended path from the
socket connector on stage via the multicore
to the socket connector on the mixing desk.
Another argument emerges from the ground potential,
i.e. the point within the system where the screen/s
is/are connected to ground and thus inevitably with
the PE potential of the locations low-voltage power
grid. Basically, this should be the input of the mixing
console. This is the central point where all the screens
of the multicore system are linked to each other.
Here we find all screen connections centrally joined,
irrespective of the moment if on the XLR or the jack
on the 0V = ground potential of the internal power
supply and thus on PE potential.
With a consistently balanced cabling that uses a
separate shielding for each single line, the XLR input
socket on the stagebox is precisely equivalent to the
console input to which it is linked. If you connect a
condenser microphone here and activate phantom
power on this channel, then the operating current of
the microphone will only flow through this channel.
The separate shielding has even greater benefits
when connecting mains-powered audio sources. In
most cases we may well assume that down in the
hall, where the mixing console has been placed, the
PE potential at the Schuko socket will not be exactly
identical to the PE potential at the Schuko socket up
on stage.
Now, if a mains-powered device is connected with
its output to the stagebox, compensating currents
may occur via the screen of the audio line, we
have the classical ground loop. But with a separate
shielding in most cases only this single channel
will be affected. Trouble-shooting is relatively easy
and an interposed DIbox with GND lift (XLR pin
1 isolated) will eliminate the problem. However,
if all screens are joined at the stagebox or in the
connector and several mains-powered sources are
connected, the humming noise can multiply. For not
only will potential compensating currents drain off via
the console; they will rather flow also between the
connected devices via the screen.

One remedy that has spread around among


stage practicians but is hazardous. Often
the earth wire is taped or disconnected
on devices or power cables. This may lead
to success, but is nevertheless EXTREMELY
DANGEROUS.
To the point, that joining the screens will help to save
costs because then only the a-wire and the b-wire of
a line must be crimped and more audio lines can be
used on each connector, is a popular misconception.
It is neither the connector nor the cable and not the
crimping contacts that produce costs here it is in
the end the technican who, has to braid, solder and
connect everything to the screens. Often the screens
are then linked to the PE terminal of the connector,
where else?
Well, here again the safety aspect is neglected.
The terminal on the connector has been marked as
CHASSIS = PE terminal by the manufacturer. The
connector housing is conductive and must lie on
PE potential according to VDE0100. Regrettably
anything else is forbidden, and we should stick to
this. Screens just do not belong at this terminal.
The construction of stagebox and multicore systems
is not to be seen only under the aspect of pure signal
transmission. This is especially true for the many
amateur and hobby musicians with quality skills,
who often let the technology spoil their pleasure at a
public performance. Here its about tough existance
jobs that just wont allow you to go trouble-shooting
for hours, this could easily be avoided with careful
planning and spending a little more money.
MULTICORE- AND DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS

In professional event technology multicore cables


are used as a lifeline between the stage and the
necessary sound mixing consoles. These cables
combine a varying number of audio lines, wired and
shielded as braided pairs, in one common insulating
tube. The cable properties are designed to withstand
even heavy-duty use on the road.
Due to the individual laying which changes with
every venue and stage construction, it must be
flexible and torsion-free, no matter if the sun heats
up the cable to 50C at a summer open-air event
or if the winter brings freezing temperatures down to
20C. Of course, it should also have a strain relief
and be resistant to heavy boots on stage.

STAGEBOXES & MULTIPAIR SYSTEMS

STAGEBOXES AND MULTIPAIR SYSTEMS

Music is the connecting link...


and the musicians are linked to the stagebox. This device groups the input signals
coming from the connected stage instruments and feeds them to the mixing board
in the hall or studio control room. The output connectors of the stagebox are used
to connect the stage monitors and for monitoring the stereo master signal. For this
reason the input and output connectors on the stagebox are designed as pairs, for
example: 16 inputs and 4 outputs or 24 inputs and 8 outputs, etc.
Microphone cables are always balanced (i.e. 2 conductors + shielding). For
each field of application there is the right stagebox configuration. So for the
short distances on stage we recommend a stagebox with 8 to 24 channels and a
multipair cable directly attached to the box (2) + (3). With a max. cable length of
about 33metres, these systems are still man-portable.
Beyond 32 channels we recommend using a different configuration:
a multipin mounting plug (4) is installed on the floor stagebox and the multipair
cable is reeled on a cable drum. For all directly wired stagebox systems the
specified cable length includes the internal wiring (approx. 0.4 m).

An even better solution is to mount the stagebox in a 19 rack (1) and fit it with
standard multipin connectors. Good to know: in the audio branch there is no such
thing as a standard configuration. You decide whether the multipin female or the
multipin male is to be installed at the box, the extension cable or the adapter.
However, to guarantee a certain compatibility with other suppliers or systems of a
local renting company, we advise you to install multipin plugs on the box and splice
adapter and also a multipin socket on either side of the extension piece.
Our SYSBOXX system is ideal for all kinds of special solutions e.g. sub-multicore
inputs on the 19 stagebox. More details are available under www.sysboxx.com.

All multipin systems are delivered with protective bags!

DESCRIPTION 
Lighting kit with 9 V compartment, 
Green LED and switch, for PLUG MAMA MK II

MULTICORE- AND DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS

is the main feature of this stagebox. The patch surface is slanted.


The XLR cables will no longer protrude and therefore cannot be bent.
PLUGMAMA MK II is appealing in appearance and clearly structured,
and nobody will trip over the darn thing.
The PLUG MAMA MK II is a reasonably priced, professional, completely
pre-wired stagebox of noble design. We use high-quality components such
as our flexible QUANTUM HIGHFLEX and SC-PLANET multipair cables
with single insulated, shielded and numbered or colour-coded wire pairs plus
HICON or NEUTRIK connectors.
The steel body is incredibly robust and scratch-resistant. The input connectors are
clearly separated from the output connectors, and the outputs are exactly where
they belong, i.e. on the rear side of the box!
For reasons of clarity the large numbers have been placed slightly to the right where
they wont be covered by the locks on the XLR sockets. The small PLUGMAMA
MK II PM 12/4 is ideal for the subdistribution
of drums and is only half as wide as the box shown here.

STAGEBOX/DRUM TO RECTANGULAR MP CONNECTOR

Apart from the direct to splice stagebox/drum versions presented on the previous
pages, the version with a multipin connector offers a greater modularity (stagebox,
connection cable and splice can be transported separately and switched between
each other).
The systems shown here have high-quality multipin connectors made by ILME and
also the proven XLR connectors from HICON and NEUTRIK. This ensures a high
connection quality and many, many mating cycles...

Stagebox/Drum to Rectangular MP Connector

The multipin connectors are fitted with a cable screw joint of fibreglass-reinforced
plastic (mostly with a sleeve support spiral) which is matched to the cable diameter
and available with a straight or angled body style. All multipins come with a
protective bag.
Take your choice between the following economy/compact versions
with central grounding and the subsequent models with separate
grounding for professional applications.

with our flexible PLANET studio multipair with single insulated,
shielded and colour-coded wire pairs plus quality connectors made
by HICON or NEUTRIK. The multipin termination is available with
either straight or angled body style.

19 STAGEBOX

19 STAGEBOX with male multipin insert / Common grounding


Wired and loaded...
are our 19 stagebox systems (closed body) for installation in studio and stage
racks. The 19 housing is 94mm deep. The number of height units (RU) is shown in
the tables below.
For the XLR equipping we use locking metal panel-mount connectors from HICON or
NEUTRIK and 2 ILME multipin connectors with two latching clamps each (ILME is
generally compatible with Harting). The returns are only wired to the FOH output.
We supply the stagebox with common grounding (for separate grounding see the
following pages).
For our 19 systems with transformer technology we normally use 1:1
transformers with MU metal shielding for optimum interference protection and a
max. input of +12dBu. Here multipin 1 (FOH) receives the signals directly from the
inputs and is connected to the returns, which allows 48 V phantom power supply
from the FOH console, whereas multipin 2 (monitor) receives the transformerless
signals (inputs only).
For an advanced signal distribution, e.g. to OB vans, we can also offer a third
multipin connector with 1:1+1 transformers. We gladly accept your written orders
for custom designs by fax or email under support@sommercable.com.
Please use the request form at the end of the catalogue.
Wiring diagrams can be found under www.sommercable.com/support
For more complex applications we recommend our modular SYSBOXX system, see
the Modular Systems chapter.

PRODUCT BENEFITS:
19 rack, wall or floor mounting
Professional workmanship and wiring
Large and clear numbering for inputs and outputs
Fitted with locking panel-mount metal XLR connectors
from HICON or NEUTRIK
Subsequent conversion from common to separate

MULTIPIN female p MULTIPIN female / Common grounding

Compatibility is essential...
We use our highly flexible PLANET FMC multipair cable with single insulated
and shielded wire pairs. As connectors we use two ILME non-locking multipin
sockets which are compatible with all common rectangular connectors (Harting
etc.). The multipin sockets are available with both a straight or angled body style.
Our standard configuration that we use as a basis for the common grounding can
be found at www.sommercable.com/support. Looms with separate grounding are
shown on the following pages.

The multipin sockets come with grey housing and GRP-reinforced screw joints which
perfectly free up the cable and also ensure maximum tightness. On both cable ends
we fitted a transparent, unshrunk 10cm shrink-on tube for your individual labelling.
Optionally the multipair looms are also available on professional SCHILL cable
drums.
We gladly accept your written orders for other configurations and special designs
by fax or email under support@sommercable.com.
Always complete with multipin protective bag!

MULTIPIN male p BREAKOUT / Common grounding

Multipair loom/drum with rectangular MP connector

For the construction of these splices we use our highly flexible PLANET multipair
cable with single insulated and shielded wire pairs. On the XLR side we use
highquality connectors with numbered rings from HICON and NEUTRIK;
alternatively we also offer a version with NEUTRIK Convertcons on the returns.
For mobile applications we recommend a special model with an ILME grommet
housing (plus a male contact carrier) this has two clamps and a sealing ring.

An ideal installation/attachment solution e.g. for mounting into the console case is
our model version with ILME base/assembly housing which can be permanently
installed into the cable compartment (also called doghouse).
Splices with a female instead of a male contact base, with grommet housing and
without clamp or sealing ring are listed on the following pages.

MULTIPIN female p MULTIPIN male / Common grounding

We use our highly flexible...


PLANET FMC multipair cable. As connectors we use a non-locking multipin socket
and a locking multipin plug from ILME. Of course, these are both compatible with
all common rectangular connectors (Harting etc.).
Our standard configuration that we use as a basis for the common grounding
(orseparate grounding resp.) can be found at www.sommercable.com/support.
The multipin sockets come with GRP-reinforced screw joints which perfectly free
up the cable and also ensure maximum tightness. On both cable ends we fitted a
transparent, unshrunk 10cm shrink-on tube for your individual labelling. Optionally

CAV MP socket

the multipair looms are also available on professional SCHILL cable drums.
We gladly accept your written orders for other configurations and special

MULTIPIN female p BREAKOUT / Common grounding

We use...
our highly flexible PLANET multipair cable with single insulated and shielded wire
pairs. As connectors we use high-grade, gold-plated HICON XLR or NEUTRIK
XLR connectors on the console side; alternatively we also offer a version with
Convertcons on the returns. On the counterside we use ILME multipin connectors
(compatible with all common rectangular connectors Harting etc.). These are
available with both a straight or angled body style.
As a custom version we also supply the splice with a braided jacket on each
channel. In this case replace the Z (common ground) at the 6th position of the
order number with a Q (common ground with braided tube). The configurations
that we take as a basis can be found at www.sommercable.com/support.

The multipins come with GRP-reinforced screw joints which perfectly free up the
cable and also ensure maximum tightness. On the multipin cable end we fitted
a transparent, unshrunk 10cm shrink-on tube for your individual labelling. The
XLR plug connectors on the breakout of the separate grounding are all clearly
numbered.
We gladly accept your written orders for other configurations and special designs
by fax or email under support@sommercable.com.
Individual breakout lengths (standard see Support section) are available at no
additional charge.
Always complete with multipin protective bag!

General information

www.sommercable.com info@sommercable.com

PROFESSIONAL CABLING SYSTEMS / Separate grounding

Apart from the systems already introduced we have been designing and producing
individual solutions for professional applications for years. Here we primarily
use multipin plug connectors from Ilme (100% compatible with all common
rectangular multipin systems) as well as the round, watertight Tourlock version
which is 100% compatible with all MIL standard round connectors. Further
information such as e.g. standardised assignments are available on the last pages of
the catalogue in the Support section.
For stagebox housings we use our BLACK BOXX 19 case series and the
completely modular SYSBOXX system see the Modular Systems chapter.
Because of the tough demands put on cables for use on the road, the cable
quality is essential. The cable should be flexible and torsion-free, no matter if the
sun heats it up to 50C on a summer open-air event or if the winter brings freezing
temperatures down to 20C. Of course, the cable should also have a strain relief
and be resistant to heavy boots on stage. Mobile protective ducts are shown in
the Hardware & Accessories section.
Professional systems are usually equipped with an individual shielding for each
channel (separate grounding). On the multipin side we terminate our cable ends
with p
rotective insulating polychloroprene grommets which have a better
flexibility and greater dielectric strength when compared with shrink-on tubes. This
guarantees a permanent mechanical and electrical separation of the screens. Further
information on the signal source distribution is available in our Support
chapter.
By means of special crimping robots we give all multipin contacts a gas-tight
crimping. Other than soldering crimping has the advantage of temperature
independence (cold connection without additional materials) and both contacts and
cable will retain their elastic properties direct behind the joint.

MULTICORE- AND DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS

For medium or large events it is common practice to split the signal to several points,
e.g. FOH, monitor, OB van, recording etc. To avoid hum interference and extra
source burdens caused by possible potential differences, special transformers
are used here. They create a galvanic isolation, increase the balance and provide
the required number of outputs. For this purpose we use transformers made to our
own specifications by the renowned transformer manufacturer Lundahl of Sweden.
For optimum handling and comfortable, space-saving transport we recommend
the multipair drum version, which is also available with an integrated multipin
connection. An attractive full package solution is also the MISTER-WHEELER
case drum system. Here the drum is already included in the case. For details
please refer to the Hardware & Accessories section.
The regular splice length is 1.20 m other splice lengths are,
of course, also available on request or by proper coding (see
explanation on the introductory page to the Multicore chapter).
Breakouts (premade with our highly flexible QUANTUM and PLANET
cables) are optionally available with a braided jacket. This increases
the mechanical stability and prevents the highly flexible inner
conductors from twisting. The 6th digit of the order number (M for
separate grounding) must then be replaced with an E (separate
grounding with braided tube).
The systems shown on the following pages are only sample
configurations. We will be happy to design and make your individual
system according to your specifications.
Please use our request form on the last pages of this catalogue and
get in touch with us. Wiring diagrams are available under
www.sommercable.com/support.

STAGEBOX 19

19 STAGEBOX with male multipin insert /


Separate grounding
Wired and loaded...
are our 19 stagebox systems (closed body) for installation in studio and stage
racks. The 19 housing is 94mm deep. The number of height units (RU) can be seen
in the tables below.
For the XLR equipping we use locking metal panel-mount connectors from HICON or
NEUTRIK and 2 ILME multipin connectors with two latching clamps each (ILME is
generally compatible with Harting). The returns are only wired to the FOH output.
We supply the stagebox with separate grounding (for common grounding see the
previous pages).
For our 19 systems with transmitter technology we normally use 1:1
transformers with MU metal shielding for optimum interference protection and a
max. input of +12dBu. Here multipin 1 (FOH) receives the signals directly from the
inputs and is connected to the returns, which allows 48V phantom power supply
from the FOH console, whereas multipin 2 (monitor) receives the transformerless
signals (inputs only).
For an advanced signal distribution, e.g. to OB vans, we can also offer a third
multipin connector with 1:1+1 transformers. We gladly accept your written orders
for custom designs by fax or email under support@sommercable.com.
Please use the request form at the end of the catalogue. Wiring
diagrams can be found under www.sommercable.com/support
For more complex applications we recommend our modular SYSBOXX system, see
the Modular Systems chapter.

PRODUCT BENEFITS:
19 rack, wall or floor mounting
Professional workmanship and wiring
Large and clear numbering for inputs and outputs
Fitted with locking panel-mount metal XLR connectors

Multipair loom/drum with rectangular MP connector

MULTIPIN female p MULTIPIN female / Separate grounding

Compatibility is essential...
we use our highly flexible QUANTUM QMC multipair cable with single insulated
and shielded wire pairs. As connectors we use two ILME non-locking multipin
sockets which are compatible with all common rectangular connectors (Harting
etc.). The multipin sockets are available with both a straight or angled body style.
Our standard configuration that we take as a basis for the separate grounding
(orcommon grounding resp.) can be found at www.sommercable.com/support.
The configuration is specified as the total number of channels.
32 channels are thus suitable for 24/08, 28/04 or 32/00 e.g.

unshrunk transparent
shrink-on tube

The multipin sockets come with grey housings and GRP-reinforced screw joints which
perfectly relieve the cable and also ensure maximum tightness. On both cable ends
we fitted a transparent, unshrunk 10cm shrink-on tube for your individual labelling.
We gladly accept your written orders for other configurations and special designs
by fax or email under support@sommercable.com.
Always complete with multipin protective bag!

Optionally the multipair looms are also available on professional SCHILL cable
drums. That way even long cable runs can be transported in a very compact
format. To this end we reel 1m of the cable onto the drums auxiliary take-up so
that the drum can be connected directly to the console breakout or the stagebox.

An ideal installation/attachment solution e.g. for mounting into the console case is
our model version with ILME base/assembly housing which can be permanently
installed into the cable compartment (also called doghouse).
Splices with a female instead of a male contact base, with grommet housing and

We use our highly flexible...


QUANTUM QMC multipair cable. As connectors we use a non-locking
multipin socket and a locking multipin plug from ILME. Of course, these are both
compatible with all common rectangular connectors (Harting etc.).
The multipin socket is both available with a straight or angled body style.
Our standard configuration that we take as a basis for the separate (or common
grounding resp.) can be found at www.sommercable.com/support.

CAV MP socket
from ILME

The separate grounding version comes with GRP-reinforced screw joints which
perfectly free up the cable and also ensure maximum tightness. On both cable ends
we fitted a transparent, unshrunk 10cm shrink-on tube for your individual labelling.
We gladly accept your written orders for other configurations and custom designs
by fax or email under support@sommercable.com.
Always complete with multipin protective bag!

Multipair loom/drum with rectangular MP connector

MULTIPIN female p BREAKOUT / Separate grounding

We use...
our highly flexible QUANTUM QMC multipair cable. As connectors we use
highgrade, gold-plated HICON XLR or NEUTRIK XLR connectors on the console
side; alternatively we also offer a version with NEUTRIK Convertcons on the
returns. On the counterside ILME multipin connectors (compatible with all common
rectangular connectors Harting etc.).
As a custom version we also supply the splice with a braided jacket on each
channel. In this case replace the M (separate ground) at the 6th position of the
order number with an E (separate ground with braided tube). The configurations
that we take as a basis can be found at www.sommercable.com/support.
The multipins come with GRP-reinforced screw joints which perfectly relieve the
cable and also ensure maximum tightness. On the multipin cable end we fitted

a transparent, unshrunk 10cm shrink-on tube for your individual labelling. The
XLR plug connectors on the breakout of the separate grounding are all clearly
numbered.
We gladly accept your written orders for other configurations and special designs
by fax or email under support@sommercable.com.
Individual breakout lengths (standard see Support section) are available at no
additional charge.
Always complete with multipin protective bag!

On site youll just


put on the cable

1 2 3 go!
Our INSTA-BOXX can be wired up immediately on location and even without
a soldering gun!
Each XLR audio channel has a triple plug spring terminal on the back
(ground, negative, positive) to easily enable a separate grounding system, no
matter if youre using a litz wire or a solid wire measuring 0.05 2.5mm.
All you need is a small screwdriver for insertion!
(For common grounding connections simply bridge the respective ground
connections on all channels e.g. with a serial wire on the plug terminals or on the
two soldering points for each channel on the pc board).
The connection board has three soldering points per channel for an optional
multipin connnector.
The secret behind the superfast permanent installation solution are our special

IBC-4XM

XLR module boards with a 4- or 8-channel grid, combined with the


SOMMERCABLE BLACKBOXX, PLUG MAMA and THE BOXX MK III
housing series with a 30mm hole spacing.
You can order them as a kit or pre-assembled and pre-wired, even on one or
two rectangular multipins optionally also with 1:1 transmitter technology
(BLACKBOXX and THE BOXX only). The empty housings for the BLACKBOXX,
PLUG MAMA and THE BOXX MK III are shown in the Hardware &
Accessories section.
For installations of > 24 channels we recommend our BLACKBOXX housing
series see picture and for smaller systems THE BOXX MKIII. Four holes on
the bottom of the BLACKBOXX and the removable 19 rackmounts allow an easy
floor or wall installation.
