The Davicom system uses industry-standard Champ 50-pin connectors for all its I/O needs. The Cortex I/O Kit (Weidmuller terminals) is an interesting alternative to making-up your own wiring harnesses. The kit represents a neat and convenient way to connect to the back of your Davicom units, saving you the trouble of making up your own 25-pair cables. 
All of Davicom's 25-pair cables are soldered and not crimped. This ensures excellent low-resistance contacts that reduce noise and intermodulation products often associated with crimped contacts in environments where high RF levels are present. Davicom recommends that crimped-contact connectors not be used for audio and video connections in these environments.
Note that older MiniMAC+ models (black front panel) do not require an I/O kit.
* I/O Panel available separately.  Product ordering code: MIOP

One Davicom I/O Panel is required for each pair of 50-pin Champ connectors at the back of your unit. Thus, MAC8, DV-208 and DV-Mini models require one I/O panel. MAC16 and DV-216 models require two I/O panels. MAC24 models require three I/O panels and MAC32 models require four I/O panels.


You can connect your own wiring harnesses to the Davicom I/O Panel, or purchase soldered cables up to 15-meters long with various connectors (straight-straight, straight-angle, straight-pigtail), thus saving you the trouble of making up your own 25-pair cables.


Note that I/O Panels are also offered as part of a kit that includes standard 2-meter Cables with straight-straight connectors (refer to the Davicom Input/Output Kit).


In North America, if you purchase Davicom units with the package option (Model Number ending with /P), I/O Kits will already be included at a discounted price.
