Canford  is providing a PLASA debuts for the new ‘enhanced’ Tecpro Wireless  handsets and TW403 wired to wireless interface, the impressive new RTS  BTR-240 wireless comms system, CAT5E stageboxes and multicore cables in  several lengths up to 75m and last but not least the clever EMO E810 LED  racklight that interfaces with comms systems to flash letting the  operator know of a call inbound. Canford will also show a selection from  their comprehensive range of cables including the D’n’A  series which  redesigned all their most popular audio cables to handle both analogue  and AES digital audio. Also being featured by Canford will be the latest  products from Cloud and Databay.

The  new enhanced Tecpro Wireless beltpacks offer full Duplex Operation and  licence-free operation in the UHF frequency band. The powerful new  handsets can supply up to 200mW with a 400m max Range and now benefit  from a range of enhancements.  New features include, push to talk mode,  adjustable side tone, fast Channel change facility, selectable mic  filter, PIN lockable feature locks off pages in the advanced menu.

The  RTS BTR-240 system operates in the licence-free 2.4GHz frequency band  and delivers full-duplex operation for up to 8 beltpacks with an almost  unlimited number of half-duplex beltpacks.  The system offers two  separate audio channels allowing users to communicate on either or both  channels.  Talk and listen and listen-only modes are selectable on  individual or both channels.

The BTR-240  wireless intercom system is suitable for stand-alone operation or can be  directly interfaced to wired systems including RTS, Tecpro and  Clearcom.

Also new to  PLASA and only just launched are Canford’s  ‘tour grade’ Cat 5 breakout  boxes with 4 or 8 way, Cat 5 connectivity and CAT5 Multicore cables in 4  or 8 way versions. Also just launched are Fibre Optic breakout boxes.  Both types are intended for applications where a tough resilient  solution is required. The multicore Ethernet cables employ Canford’s  reduced size CAT5E-F-M, designed specifically for installations where a  high quality but very flexible screened Category 5E cable is required.  The core construction and jacket material is identical to CAT5E-F; the  difference is only in the jacket thickness. The individual cables are  collected within a tough outer sleeve enabling their uses in deployable  applications. Each cable is individually numbered to aid termination.

The  new EMO LED racklight will also appear at PLASA for the first time.   The new unit differs from competitors in several crucial ways, not the  least being that it interfaces with Tecpro and RTS comms systems to  indicate when a call is in-bound.

The  E810 racklight is a flush unit with no protruding catches or latches.  It employs push to open and ‘click shut’ sliding rails and when closed  automatically switches off the light and switches it on when opened  again. The sliding rails enable the unit to be withdrawn to precisely  the right point to permit the operator to see all or just a few of the  rack mounted devices below.

Canford  will also feature their D’n’A cable range launched at PLASA last year.  The D’n’A cable range (Digital and Analogue) has been redesigned to  provide a true 100ohm impedance making the cables perfect for digital as  well as analogue signals. An impedance of 100 ohms has been proven to  be an optimal impedance for AES/EBU digital audio signals as well as  analogue microphone and line level signals. Many of the cables come in  Low Fire Hazard (LFH) versions.
