Good morning everyone!
RUGGED has been swamped lately! So much new stuff goin on we cant keep track.
One question we get a lot on the phones or customers have questions about is cabling.
We offer 2 styles of cables to go between your headsets and the intercom:
Headset Direct Cables
and Offroad XL Cables
Headset direct cables come standard with kits. These are offered in a 9, 12 and 16 foot length, and are referred to by their part numbers of CS-9(12, 16)-5P
. They have a chrome 5 pin connector on each end - one end plugs into the back of the intercom, the other end plugs into the headset.
Headset direct cables allow you to utilize the push to talk button on the headset as well for car to car communication. Pictured below, on the right, is a headset direct cable.
On the left is our XL Offroad cables. These cables come standard in our ULTIMATE kits, or kits offered with helmets. We have the XL offroad cables availible in 6, 12 and 16 foot lengths, and are referred to by their part numbers of CS-6(12,16)-OFF
. They have a chrome 5 pin connector on one end to plug into the intercom, and a blue molded 1/4" female jack on the other end.
Helmet kits will plug directly into this plug. To plug in a headset, you have 2 options:
- a 3 foot straight cord that has a 5 pin on one end to plug into your headset, and a blue molded 1/4" male jack on the other to plug into your CS-6-OFF.
- a 3 foot coiled cord with a short straight lead at each end - same connectors as above. Only difference in the coiled section.
Hopefully this will clear up any confusion, and help educate people on the different types of cabling we offer, and plan out your future systems!
More coming soon..... gotta get on the phone for a bit!
