Hello all.. I've got a cable question.. I've got large quantity of Belden cable that came wired up as TRS snakes for audio purposes. I got it on eBay and it appeared home built. I got if for a great deal for the connecters alone (x 72 Switchcraft TRS)..
I was planning on using the cable for some of my own patchbays but after looking closely, it looks a little different then most 3 conductor audio cable i've used. First off, the leads are not plain copper (spec sheet says tinned copper) and the shield appears to be foil embedded into the insulation..
I googled the cable model number and determined that it may no be intended for audio specifically. But wanted to know if this is something that could be used.. Apparently someone did. Audio certainly passes through it, but I'm wondering about noise, RF, ect.. I was planning one using if for runs from my board->patchbay->24 Track.
The cable reads:
Belden M 9541 E108998 2C22 SHIELDED
(UL) CMC -C (UL) ---- F14 1412 1122 D34
I did find a data sheet, but it appears to describe snake type cable and mentions RS-232 applications. Which apparently us utilized for data and computers..
