An issue that has cost electronics manufacturers worldwide a great deal of time, effort and money is the Restriction of Hazardous Substances directive. It restricts the use of many materials; most noticeably leaded solder and cadmium plating on connector shells. Which is why Bryant Unlimited have now introduced a fully RoHS compliant version of the MIL-C 26482, 26 and 41 pin connectors; which are historically the connector of choice for the outside broadcast industry in the UK and are used in conjunction with 8 and 12 way 'STAR-QUAD' cables in audio multicore systems.
These new connectors have zinc cobalt black plating finish and heavy duty arctic grade ribbed coupling rings. Both the standard convention of cable-end male connector with locking ring to panel female receptacle with bayonet posts; and cable-end receptacle to mating panel mount plug are available. Both male and female panel mount versions have square mounting flanges.
Coming from well established military markets such as fighting vehicles and communications, these multiple contact connectors offer equipment designers a high quality, miniature, bayonet coupling connection with positive audible mate. They have solder contacts and when terminated in the proper manner are very resilient to hostile environments and the delicate fingers of outside broadcast riggers.
Bryant Unlimited manufacture multicore assemblies with 8 and 12 way star quad audio cables and a wide range of cable accessories; the products have been hard wired into all the UK Premier League football grounds so that incoming OB vehicles can plug and play from existing pitch side microphone positions. These assemblies are wired with Bryant's unique 'Conducfil' star quad cables; damme good cables as sensible prices; to the standard BBC pin out and the 26 pin versions are fully compatible with the older style 7 way multicores.
