Highly flexible hybrid cable for indoor and outdoor applications

The HELUEVENT HYBRID is the latest media technology cable available from HELUKABEL. The cable combines video, audio and electrical components and is highly flexible at the same time. The cable’s primary use is for control desks and mixing consoles, but can also be used in cameras with multiple outlets. It can be employed in studios, on stages or in building services and safety engineering, such as security cameras in trains.

HELUKABEL developed the hybrid cable at its Franconian Windsbach plant especially for a notable German TV station. It contains four cables: two HELUKAT 200 cables for data transmission, one JZ-500 control cable for power supply, and a 75 OHM 1.0/4.6 coax cable for the video signal. The challenge for the engineers in Windsbach was the high flexibility requirement. This is hard to implement for hybrid cables. After many tests in HELUKABEL’s testing centres, the optimal chemical combination was finally found allowing the cable to be highly flexible.

The HELUEVENT HYBRID is halogen-free as well as flame-retardant and can therefore be installed in buildings. Special sheath materials also make the cable suitable for outdoor applications. Additionally, it is resistant to oxygen, UV and microbes.

The HELULIGHT, HELUSOUND and HELUEVENT brands offered by HELUKABEL are high-quality, harmonised cable solutions for media technology, and can be delivered from stock or custom made. They can be used for cabling light, sound and camera equipment as well as in the fields of surveillance and security technology, industrial process and control, pyrotechnics as well as power supply. All cables can be found in the media technology catalogue, available at: www.helukabel.de/publication-order
