Data network cabling system offers high flexibility for theatre backstage applications
Harting’s new Ha-VIS preLink(R) interconnection system offers a new installation concept for data network cabling according to ISO/IEC 1180.1, and is ideally suited to heavy duty applications in theatre backstage and upstage areas.The new connection technology simplifies cabling, saves installation time and enables extensions and conversions without incurring significant interruptions to existing operations.
With the Ha-VIS preLink(R) system, the data cable is first assembled in the preLink(R) termination block, which then simply snaps into the preLink(R) standard RJ-45 jacks or optional Harting plug modules. The preLink(R) cables can be either terminated in the field or factory supplied pre-terminated in a reliable, performance guaranteed, pre-tested state.
Installation flexibility is enhanced by easy replacement and ‘drag through’ in narrow ducting of the small cross section preLink(R) cables, allowing future proof upgrades from Category 5 100 Mbit/s to Category 6 EA 10 Gbit/s performance.
Harting offers a patch panel for installation in 19 inch cabinets or frames in accordance with IEC/DIN EN60297-3-100 (DIN 41494-1). A mix of up to 24 individual Ha-VIS preLink(R) RJ-45 socket modules and RJ Industrial(R) 10G couplers can be loaded into the patch panel. The users benefit from the flexibility that allows them to decide for themselves whether they want to work with pre-terminated cables or patch cables.
To complete the range of solutions for theatre installations, Harting also offers a Ha-VIS preLink(R) IP 20/30 AP Box for mounting on walls and pillars or on DIN rails according to DIN EN60715. The AP Box simply consists of two housing sections and preLink(R) RJ-45 modules. The AP Box is pre-assembled and is quick and easy to install. Cables can be fed in from above or below. Both RJ-45 ports have angled outlets and can be labelled.
