Gepco Expands Line of RunONE Powered Cables
Gepco International has announced the expansion of its line of Gepco Brand RunONE Powered Cables to include a version specifically for touring and production use at the 133rd AES Convention October 27-29, 2012.
RunONE Powered Cables combine audio and power, along with optional data, under a single durable, yet flexible jacket. With multiple uses for corporations, DJs, lighting rigs and tours, RunONE allows the user to pull a single cable in place of multiple cables, providing a portable and neat solution that saves time and hassle.
Each RunONE cable combines one channel of power with two, eight, or 12 channels of 110 Ohm balanced audio for line level, mic level or digital AES audio signals and can be used with self-powered speakers or in DMX lighting control. Additional configurations of RunONE include two channels of Category 5e cable that can be used for data drops in remote power and audio applications. Snakes with optional data can also be used for digital audio transmission while sending power to Front of House (FOH) for remote locations. Shielding around the power channels eliminates power noise from interrupting the audio/data signal, ensuring high-quality performance.
Joining the existing Professional Line of RunONE cables, the new Touring Line was designed with larger-gauge power conductors and an overall shield. The 12 AWG power conductors of the Touring Line provide a lower voltage drop for long distance runs, while the overall shield reduces outside noise often encountered during those longer runs.
Terminated with industry-standard connectors, RunONE cables offer the option of Edison, IEC and Neutrik powerCON connectors for the power channel; 3-pin XLR, 5-pin XLR (for DMX lighting), TRS and Neutrik convertCONconnectors for audio channels; and RJ45 and Neutrik etherCON connectors for optional data channels. RunONE cables are available in pre-defined and custom configurations.
“The RunONE cables are a great solution for anyone looking to save time,” said Joe Zajac, Sales and Applications Engineer for Gepco Brand Products. “Now the Touring Line of RunONE cables also provides a neat solution where extended runs of cable are needed.”
