Composite Cable Assemblies

Blackhawk Enterprises manufactures custom composite CCTV Cables for the ITS industry.  The composite cable consists of video, data, power and optional spare wiring.  Cable can be purchased in any length as raw cable, cable assembled with customer provided connector or cable assembled with Blackhawk provided connector.

Completed cable assemblies in large lengths (>50ft) will come spooled, with the option for the connector spooled on the inside or outside to make running the cable easier during installation.

Blackhawk Enterprises can make any other custom cables that you may need for a variety of applications.  Call today to get a quote on the cable you need.

RS-422/RS-485 Wiring:

Composite cables manufactured by Blackhawk Enterprises that have RS-422 or RS-485 do NOT have the data drain wired in the MS-Connector.  The drain wire should be terminated to the cabinet ground on the tag end of the composite cable assembly, typically on the surge protection device.
