SoundTools has just released new SuperCAT Sound Tails interconnect cable that implements a male cable-mount etherCON on one end terminating to four XLR 3-pin, DMX 5-pin, or quarter-inch connectors on the other end.
SuperCAT Sound Tails can be plugged directly into the SoundTools CAT Tails, forming a dis-connectable four-channel male-to-female cable or allowing for a variety of four-channel adapter sets of differing genders and connector types. A Neutrik etherCON barrel (NE8FF) can be used to connect SuperCAT Sound Tails to an etherCON cable.
They employ a male RJ45 or etherCON connector that can be plugged directly into numerous SoundTools RATCAT products, allowing the SuperCAT Tails to be used as a fanout to four channels of XLR or DMX. They can simplify stage setups by running one slim Cat-5e cable instead of four XLR or DMX cables, and can run any mixture of four lines of audio, DMX, COM, or AES3 and is compatible with 48-volt phantom power.
“SuperCAT Sound Tails are awesome,” says Dave Rat, SoundTools product designer. “When I designed the SuperCAT Sound Cable with the individually grounded and shielded pairs it created the ability to have a set of etherCON tails that are terminated like a standard four-channel audio snake.” He addss that they function identically to the CAT Tails product if used with an Neutrik etherCON barrel and have the added advantage of being able to work with other RATCAT products.
