Sommer Cable Germany is a highly reputable European manufacturer of professional cables known for high quality and innovation to meet the most challenging requirements. One such innovation is SC-Mercator CAT.7 cable which is one of the best network cables available today. It is specifically designed to transport network signals in the most demanding mobile and outdoor applications.
The engineers at Sommer have set a new benchmark in rugged CAT cable with the SC-Mercator CAT.7 cable. Other than being future-proof to meet all CAT.5e, CAT.6, CAT.6a and CAT.7 transmissions the cable boasts the following benefits;
The proliferation of cheap unshielded RJ45 ethernet cable out of the IT world unfortunately has resulted in good quality, shielded CAT cable often being overlooked and viewed as an unnecessary expense for professional AV networking. The CAT cable connecting your front of house console to your stage racks, video or lighting rig is the life line of your system. A failure here because of a low quality cable and the whole show goes down.
To put this into perspective a rider friendly tour level audio mixing console and loudspeaker system can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, this is not the place to connect the two with the cheapest cable that can be found using low quality RJ45 connectors that can break easily. Professional AV environments can be quite rough on equipment, especially cables that get stepped on and run over by road cases and vehicles. Our CAT.6a ethernet cables are built tough with Neutrik etherCONs to withstand these conditions with all pairs shielded for maximum performance.
At Cablesmiths we make each of these CAT cables with industry standard CAT.6a etherCON connectors to the highest standard to ensure a long life of reliable performance. Custom options such as black etherCONs, cable length, ring ID colours and heatshrink logos are available on request.
For longer lengths we recommend the cable be put on a cable drum to make it easier to manage in the field. See our CAT.6a cable drums here.
