COAX Connectors Ltd are proud to announce the latest in video patchbay systems. The 12G “microMUSA” range of patchbays includes a 2×32 1RU and a world’s first 12G 2×48 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 2×48 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!
