SNAKESKIN(TM) CABLE JACKETING

AVAILABLE ON ALL FANOUTS


  
Woven from a state-of-the-art monofilament material, Snakeskin 
is so tough that it withstands temperatures from below freezing 
to above boiling. Impervious to petrochemicals and UV radiation, 
if Snakeskin can't protect your cables, nothing can! Not only does 
Snakeskin retain its strength and flexibility under duress, its 
smooth, almost slippery surface makes pulling cables easy and 
tangling them difficult. Snakeskin's various colors simplify 
complex installations with color coding. Snakeskin can be ordered 
on any multipair fanout by adding SS to the part number.

The Medusa Multitrack (MT) Series is designed to interface multitrack recorders or outboard equipment to mixing consoles.

Each Multitrack Medusa is constructed of Whirlwind multipair cable with a heat-shrunk fanout at each end, and is available with optional Snakeskin® . An alternative construction uses individually jacketed (IJ) Canare wire with Snakeskin® fanouts standard.

Choose from 8, 12, 16, 24 or 32 line configurations (other channel counts available special order) and Whirlwind XLRs, RCA Phono plugs or 1/4" TRS plugs.

Each fanout can be specified with distinct connector types and signal polarity. When the same type of connector is specified at each end, wiring is pin to pin. Wire mesh hanger grips can be ordered as an option.
