We currently have the 50ft microphone cable for our Group Seris microphone but unfortunately that is still a 10ft shy of our needs. Doing a search, there doesn't seem to be any other cable longer than 50ft or any sort of coupler/Male to Female extension cable. Does anyone know of a solution to extend the cable even more?
check the RPGS integrators guide:
In the section "Custom Cabling for Polycom Microphone Arrays" you'll find all instructions and wiring diagrams.
You'll have to use SFTP cables for >25' lengths, and if you'll run them through the false ceiling please note that they have to be plenum rated.
You can use the Walta/RJ45 adapters below for extending the cable length with an SFTP RJ45 cable:
CLink 2 adapter. Walta (F) to RJ-45 (M) 12" adapter cable. For connecting Ceiling Microphone Array or other RJ-45 CLink 2 or custom cable to Group Series, HDX series codecs and Polycom SoundStructure. €33.00 2457-23716-001
CLink 2 adapter. Walta (M -codec side) to RJ-45 (F) 18" adapter cable. For connecting Ceiling Microphone Array or other RJ-45 CLink 2 or custom cable to Group Series, HDX series codecs and Polycom SoundStructure. €42.00 2457-25646-001
We have ran a RJ-45 cable that is ~60 ft and have two of the Walta to RJ-45 adapters. Do we follow the wiring diagram for "Shielded Conference Link Crossover Cable"? Or the wiring diagram under "Wire a custom cable"?
If we follow the diagram for shielded conference link crossover cable, does P1 and P2 identify each side of the RJ45 cable?
