L-com Introduces Armored HDMI Audio/Video Cable Assemblies

L-com’s new HDMI cables with either plastic or metal armor are crush resistant up to 1500 PSI and will be available off-the-shelf for niche A/V applications.

North Andover, MA — August 10, 2012 — L-com, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, has introduced a line of HDMI audio/video cables with Ethernet that have a crush-resistant armor over the cable length. The new cables are available in either plastic armor, with a crush resistance of 1000 PSI (Pounds per Square Inch), or metal armor, with a crush resistance of 1500 PSI.

These cables have many applications where they would potentially be exposed to excessive force, such as military, security, and industrial environment applications. The cables feature 30 microinch gold plated contacts and double shielding to protect the sensitive audio and video signals from interference. The cables are stocked in six different lengths and will be available off-the-shelf for same day shipment.

“HDMI technology is used in many more applications than just home theater and digital signage,” said Steve Smith, Product Manager. “We saw a need for HDMI connectivity in environments where the cables may be crushed or impacted, and often those environments are the type where downtime is not an option. We designed these cables to serve that market and we’re happy to provide them off-the-shelf.”

The new cables will be stocked in L-com’s Massachusetts, USA, distribution center for same-day shipment. Specifications, a 2D engineering drawing, and 3D CAD models are all available on L-com’s website for free download.
