COAX Connectors Ltd are proud to announce the latest in video patchbay systems. The 12G “microMUSA” range of patchbays includes a 2x32 1RU and a world’s first 12G 2x48 1RU patchbay. This newly designed patchbay system includes panels, U-links and patchcords. The system delivers 4K single link performance exceeding SMPTE ST2082-1, and is suitable for all the following video standards; composite and component video, 270 Mb/s SDI, uncompressed 1080i or 1080p HD-SDI, HDR and 4K UHD (2160P60) video up to 12GHz. The rear of the 32-way patchbay is populated with BNC connectors and the rear of the 48-way panel is populated with 96 amazing high-density True 75Ω 12G Micro BNC (HD-BNC) connectors all delivering full 12G performance whist saving space and reducing weight. This 2x48 high density patchbay format is of real benefit in OB trucks and other places where space and weight are at a premium.
Patchcords for the 12G microMUSA patchbay system use the latest flexible 12G rated cable. Correct mating is easily achieved thanks to a detent feature in the connectors which provides tactile feedback to ensure 100% mating. The U-link bodies are made of cast metal and include finger grips for ease of insertion or extraction. The precision machined and formed U-link centre contact provides a seamless repeatable signal path. No straight or right angled solder joints in sight!
