Allen&Heath GLD80 -> AR2412 stagebox

Works great using TMB ProPlex PCCAT5EP:

This is shielded stranded Cat5e.

I'm running 100' and 200' lengths with Ethercon connectors.  This cable is officially supported by A&H:

BobWitte:
GLD -> AR2412->AR8 and second line to AR84


Also use Dante for recording.



Bought two Allen and Heath 120 Meter cables but had nothing but errors with it. Sent one back and got a replacement and that didn't make any difference.  QOS errors in the log file, red light at the connector on the GLD. Error every 1-2 minutes got the QOS error. Used a DuraCat cable at 150 FEET - no problemS for the one event we used it at. I cut 120 feet off of the 120 meter A&H cables, redid the shielded Ethercon and NOW HAVE ZERO errors over 5 live events.


So, is the spec'd 120 meters wrong? 3 cables with errors, shorten two of them and they work perfect!

Did you happen to leave a large portion of it on the spool?  My understanding is that if you are not using a great length of the cable that unwinding a portion off of the spool will prevent errors.  YMMV.

GLD112 -> AR2412 -> AR84

Using Neutrik Etherflex 100m cable: http://www.neutrik.co.uk/en-uk/data/etherflex/cable-assembly-air-spooled

Its another A&H approved cable, and is a custom order at any length you want. It can come on a reel, but we went for 'air spooled'

Console is used in live applications, and the cable has proved stable so far. We use another AR84 at the console which is connected with the included short Klotz patch cable.

As a bit of a suggestion - we have loomed an XLR loom onto the 100m line with Neutrik genderless XLRs at each end - comes in handy for intercom or various other connections that used to borrow spare snake lines.
