Tactical Fiber Snake Reels can include a hinged latching door, outboard coiling ring with retention strap, or slotted disk dividers depending on cable diameters and lengths. Check with your sales associate for reel information regarding specific assemblies. Each reel has been carefully selected to ensure proper support and critical bend radius required by fiber optic cables. We recommend tactical fiber optic cables over 25 feet be stored on a cable reel.

For numerous users this optical interface is a mystery.Very few have ever dealt with huge cabinets full of professional network technology. Therefore, here are some explanations regarding `MADI optical': The cables have an internal fibre of only 50 or 62.5 ‘m (microns) in diameter and a coating of 125 ‘m. The plugs used are an industry standard, called SC. The cables are available as a duplex variant (2 cables being glued together) or as a simplex variant (1 cable). The transmission uses the multi-mode technique, which supports cable lengths of up to almost 2000 meters.
MADI is being used as a multi-Channel link between mixing consoles, DAWs or multi-track recorders or other digital outboard gear, as a transmission format in large scale digital audio routing systems, to transmit digitized microphone and line signals from a stage box to a theatre or studio mixing console.
