Sommer have been making it for almost 10 years using the same proven technology. The SC-Mistral MCF features the pairwise PVC insulation, as it is usual for studio cores. It has a hard wearing number overprint plus an extra colour-coding in steps of 8.
The wire pairs of the SC-Mistral MCF have a pre twisted drain wire and another shielding made of AL/PT compound foil. For added protection against corrosion and oxidation both the conductors and the drain wire have been tinned. The cable is particularly easy to handle because the AL/PT foil will stick to the outer jacket when stripping. The SC-Mistral MCF is very easy to lay and reel. We also recommend it for the assembly of multicore adapters. Here the XLR and jack connectors can be mounted directly on the PVC jacket.
Additional insulation for each wire pair with a numbered and colour-coded PVC sleeve
Very flexible and tread-resistant owing to the use of a rubber like jacket material
Simple and fast handling due to the use of compound foil and a pre-twisted drain wire
High bending cycles due to the tightly stranded Cu litz wires
Returns on the cable splice are instantly recognisable by the colour coding on the conductor pairs
High transmission quality even with excess distances (low capacitance!)
Cable can be used for both Analog or Digital
