Sommer To Introduce Cable For Hanging Stereo Microphones

At InfoComm 2018, Sommer Cable is introducing SC-Micro Duo Aramid shielded twin pair cable for hanging stereo microphones.

Sommer Cable said Aramid consists of synthetic polymers, related to nylon, that yield fibers of exceptional strength and thermal stability. SC-Micro, Sommer said, is the ideal solution for surround and multi-channel recordings, especially if the microphone is hanging from the ceiling or the cable is exposed to strong tensile forces.

To absorb the weight of the microphones, fillers made of braided aramid fibers have been incorporated to act as an additional strain relief. Compared to steel ropes, the aramid fibers have no negative impact on the cable's audio transmission quality.

The low capacitance SC-Micro Duo Aramid is AES/EBU and DMX capable (110 Ohms) and due to the concentrically braided OFC wires, ensures an optimized, neutral transmission.
