Multicore colour code

Hi there,

As you can see, I'm new to this forum. I have a question about multicore cable (CW1308 type).

I use standard twisted-pair on a regular basis and know the colour codes back to front. I've just come across some 80 core cable however, twisted in quads. Each quad has the colours red and yellow in it, but I'm not sure of the official “running order” for all the conductors. I've entered a number of search patterns in Google, but can't seem to turn anything over.

And help or pointers to where I can find some more info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Matt Fry

BTW, there is an extra black in the cable, making the number of conductors 81!

Welcome to the forums. Please be aware the more info you give us the better we can help. What are you using the cable for?

Video out (Serial digital interface (SDI))
Video out (composite video)
Video out (component video)
Audio out (microphone on board)
Video in (genlock in the form of color burst)
Return video in (composite)
Return video in (vision mixer program out)
Interruptible feedback Intercom
Tally light trigger
Or something else?
