Belden Brilliance® DigiTruck® 179DT lightweight RG-179 Type 75-ohm coaxial cable is designed for use in analogue, SDI, HD video and AES/EBU digital audio transmissions. Specifically designed for use in broadcast production trucks, this new coax weighs 60% less than standard Mini RG-59/U type cables. This weight saving can significantly reduce the weight of on-road trucks and help lower fuel costs.
Brilliance® DigiTruck® 179DT Coax has a guaranteed return loss of 21dB (minimum) and is sweep tested to 3 GHz. This mimics the return loss performance of Belden's most popular Brilliance® precision video cables, providing 6dB of RL headroom against the SMPTE 292M specification. 179DT features a highly crush-resistant, foamed high-density polyethylene (FHDPE) dielectric to help ensure the durability of the cable ¯ a particularly important characteristic for use on television broadcast trucks.
DigiTruck® 179DT has a foil/braid shield that consists of a unique lightly.bonded Duobond® tape that can either be left bonded to the insulation to simplify termination with one-piece connectors or removed for use with multi-piece designs.
