Retrofit may be the buzzword with technologies like wireless, powerline and MoCA (Multimedia Over Coax) driving a new era in residential and commercial electronics, but the best way to connect networks remains through the use of a wired system.

The Anaheim, Calif.-based manufacturer Extron Electronics has recently addressed the cabling category with the launch of its XTP DTP 24 twisted-pair cable.  Extron says this new cabling product is engineered to the company’s high standards and that the new cable is certified to deliver up to 475 MHz of bandwidth as far as 330 feet (100 meters).

“Cable infrastructure for twisted-pair digital A/V systems has become one of the most important decisions for A/V system designers and installers, since the wrong choice will affect system performance for many years,” asserts Casey Hall, vice president of sales and marketing for Extron. “XTP DTP 24 Cable is engineered specifically for digital video applications to provide integrators with absolute confidence in signal integrity throughout the largest distribution systems.”

Extron manufactures the 24AWG product with solid-copper conductors that are within braid and foil shielding, and the cable is available in plenum and non-plenum versions in bulk quantities of 1,000 feet that includes self-dispensing packaging. The company also points out that supporting products like its XTP DTP 24 RJ-45 plugs, punch-down jacks and couplers are also available in lots of 10.
