The connectors are a completely new version of the MUSA, re-designed for 3G and 1.5G high definition, standard definition and analogue video applications. The performance exceeds the requirements of SMPTE292M and SMPTE424M making them suitable for composite and component video, 270 Mb/s SDI and uncompressed 1080i or 1080p HD-SDI video up to 3Gb/s. Also suitable for unbalanced 75ohm AES digital audio. The connectors are straight-through, non-normalled, and require U-links or patchcords. Rear connection is via 75ohm BNC sockets. Connector configuration is 2-rows in 1U.
The simplicity of the one-piece contacts in both panel connectors and U-links, and the non-normalled, U-link concept, means there are no complex moving parts or switch contacts, offering excellent reliability even when subjected to vibration. The body parts are nickel-plated and centre contacts are gold plated giving a smooth mating action and overcoming the ‘sticktion’ and tarnishing of the now obsolete silver MUSA. Solid interface insulators prevent dust ingress meaning dust caps on unmated ports are unnecessary.
Panels are manufactured from a rigid aluminium extrusion and are fitted with two lacing-bars and two 5mm, 432mm length, snap-on designation strips (type 1) for which AutoCAD templates are available from the Tech Zone at www.canford.co.uk or from Technical Support.
