Product(s) affected: Dicentis cabling Versions: all
Description: Trouble mixing and matching older & newer Dicentis cable assemblies (cables and connectors). The problem is usually that the cables and connectors do not fit together correctly or it's very hard to put them together.
Solution: In the past there were 2 types of connectors available and two types of cabling. The connectors and cabling could not be 'mixed and matched'.
DCNM-CBCON-I which were blue-tinted transparent connectors meant for DCNM-CB250-I (new product name) or DCNM-CB250 (old product name) solid core cabling.
DCNM-CBCON-N which were used with stranded cabling which was available as DCNM-CB250B installation cable or as a cabling assembly available with product number DCNM-CBxxB.
Now both connectors have been replaced by one common connector which can be used on both types of cabling; DCNM-CBCON (transparent, no colour).
All types of connectors can be used with the DCNM-CBTK tool.
It's advisable to use DCNM-CBxx-I cables for lengths over 5 metres as these cables are solid core which provides better performance for cable lengths over 5 meter.
