Belden 1694A Reviews

Great Cable

By Paul
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-24

The cable arrived faster than expected. The price was comparable or lower than other places we searched and BH carried the length we needed. This cable is easy to use as we are running it for cameras.

What's there to say? It's an industry benchmark.

Durable, great signal characteristics, blah blah blah. This is where it's at.

What can I say, it's a roll of cable. It does strip and terminate easily with out much effort. Works well with interacting SDI equipment.

The right cable for HD-SDI

Exactly as I expected

Quality cable! I chose to terminate with Canare BCP-B53 and can vouch for the combo.

This cable is listed by Blackmagic as being tested for carrying a 12G signal up to 50 meters. Can you confirm this is possible? I can't find any information in the technical specifications that mentions using this for a 12G signal. Thanks!

question

Will it carry a HD-SDI (1.5G) signal 500 ft?
Asked by: Gerry
I work at a tv station as well. We have found that 300 to 350' is max then you have to reclock your signal. If you have the test equipment, look at the eye pattern of your signal thru the cable. You will be able to see the degradation.

question

is this rated for use in plenum?
Asked by: Anonymous
No. Refer to the Belden Master Catalog for the plenum version of this cable. I believe it is 1695A but that part number may have changed.
