CLD Gets the Syntax Right at PLASA


CLD Distribution, leading UK professional cable and connector specialists, announce a new distribution deal with Italian connector manufacturer Valentini, which will start with their fabulous new Syntax SHD "Roadline" range of multi-pin connectors.

A selection of these and other connectors from the high quality Valentini Syntax range will be highlighted on the CLD stand at the PLASA Lighting & Sound show at Earls Court in London, September 11th - 14th, on Booth # 1-K28.

A massive amount of R 'n' D has been ploughed into the development of the robust Syntax Roadline range, which features chic, streamlined Italian styling, combined with a rugged build quality. This premium range is suitable for all audio, video and AV road based, outside broadcast and portable applications as well as for high end studio installations.

Features include a special alloy shell, with high resistance finish; marked knurling on the whole circumference of the locking ring for optimum grip, allowing smooth and seamless coupling, with a nice audible click that confirms the locking is complete. The coupling roller pins on the locking ring have also been increased for greater durability.

The thick walled locking ring is built to withstand the rigours of road based activity and will take all forms of abuse! The aluminium housing for the neoprene insert is flush with the edge of the locking ring, and avoids getting mis-shaped after taking impact, and extra-wide back-shells are used for easier wiring access.

The connectors can be retrofitted into other brands of multi-pin connectors, and their unique design - including recessing the pins behind the connector housing - ensures that they will have a longer lifespan than competitor products.

Syntax is also a perfect option for CLD's bespoke multicore building service, which uses only the best and highest specified components, underlining CLD's confidence in Syntax's reliability.

CLD is also stocking Valentini cable and cable drums. The brand meets all the quality and performance requirements of CLD's top end customers, and all elements are expected to be a great success.
