Explanation of Symbols - "Applications"



Cables for application especially on the stage, for open air festivals, or live events. These cables are easy to wind, simple to handle and will not knot, by using in correct way, so you can't trip when being laid out on stage. They are ideal for the professional and occasional musician.


Cables for mobile application distinguish themselves through the flexible PVC jacket, a fine-stranded wire construction, high bending cycles, and a low bending radius. They are easy to wind and suitable for outdoor application. For extreme outdoor applications (transmission vehicles, transmission of sporting events, etc.) we recommend the version with a PUR or TPE-jacket. This jacket used on SOMMER CABLEs is extremely resistant to notching, is halogen-free, and also resistant to heat.


These cables are optimized for sound. The special stranding or wire stranding along with perfect shielding will provide enduring listening pleasure and perfect transmission. They are used in the studio setting, in broadcasting, and in transmission vehicles.


Cables for installation are in the first place designed for longevity and safe transmission, especially for ELA-technology. They can be wired inside buildings over long distances, but also inside audio units (amplifiers, speakers, etc.) or control cabinets. If you have special fire protection requirements, please observe the halogen-free/ PUR and FRNC symbols.


These cables can be used to transmit and control 100 V technology. Basically almost all LF- and speaker cables in our program are suitable for use in ELA-technology. We use high quality materials for the insulation, such as PE, SPVC, PUR, Hytrel, and PP. The test voltage for our LF-cables is 1200 V, the operating voltage 300 V.
The main problem in ELA-technology are the long distances to be covered. The user has to calculate them or can view them in Chart "TECHNICAL SUPPORT" > "ELA Technics".


These cables are optimized for sound and were developed for true, i.e. electrically and acoustically linear transmission of audio signals. For example, you can connect amplifiers, speakers, CD-players, and other audio units. They are also recommended for the ambitious studio operator.
