No tools, training, splicing, or soldering required.
Modular, color-coded system is intuitive and efficient.
MUVI connectors prevent signal degradation and create secure connections.
Protective end caps with eye loops protect the MUVI contacts from dirt and dust.
Are you looking for a way to make audiovisual cable installations a whole lot easier?
Then look no further than the RapidRun™ modular connectivity system. You can forget about the time it takes to run new cable every time you upgrade your system. Just use one cable, a Runner, throughout your installation and terminate it with pre-configured Break-Aways, either flying leads or wallplates. They work together to form a seamless link for your video and audio sources. When you're ready to update your system, just use new flying leads or wallplates with the appropriate connectors. It's that easy!
Simplicity and speed.
The convenience of the RapidRun modular audiovisual cabling system starts with the Runner. This bundled, primary cable carries multiple conductors and multiple signal types—including stereo or digital audio and UXGA, Component, or S-Video. (To see the Runner configurations, select Diagrams on the previous page.)
The color-coded Runners are used with the color-coded Break-Away flying leads or wallplates. You don't need to worry about complex terminations. Just match the flying lead or wallplate to the cable, align the red guide arrows, and tighten the connection with the locking ring.
Terminations are fast, too. Once you install the Runner and
attach the Break-Aways, you're done—usually in less than a minute!
If you're going to upgrade your system, the cable you've already installed can stay right where it is; all you need is a different Break-Away.
Another key to this easy-to-use cabling system is in the design of the patent-pending Multiuse Versatile Interconnect™ (MUVI™) connectors. The connections have 19 precisely machined pins in their shells, and they're secured with a knurled connector, making the link between connector and cable as transparent as possible. This design enables you to send video and audio signals to Runner cable-to-Break-Away junctions with little or no signal loss.
This system was designed with durability in mind. The Runner cables feature end caps with pulling eyes to protect the pins from dirt and dust. They withstand a remarkable 15 pounds/foot of pulling tension, making them tough enough for even the roughest installations. They will even pass through 90º sweeps. (Note that sweeps bent in the field may result in a narrowed conduit diameter, a "flattened" sweep. For an easy work-around, visit rapidrun.com.)
The Runners are terminated with female connectors, and the wallplates and flying leads have recessed male connectors, both of which provide the contacts with even more protection, particularly in pulling applications. They're constructed of CL2 rated PVC for residential applications or rugged CMP-rated plenum for commercial applications.
How to use RapidRun:
Rapid Run gives you simple connection choices.
You'll find the RapidRun system to be the easiest system ever to install, connect, and reconnect audiovisual cabling.
The RapidRun system consists of a Runner cable and Break-Aways, which are flying leads and wallplates. All feature proprietary MUVI connectors. To protect the pins, Runner cables are terminated with female connectors. Break-Away connections are always male.
To use the system, just pull the Runner cable through the walls or a conduit. Each runner cable is actually comprised of multiple coax and/or twisted-pair cables. Choose the one that matches your application and the signals you need to carry.
Then, choose the right Break-Aways for your application, either a flying lead or wallplate. You'll need one for each end of your Runner cable.
You can use the flying leads to connect your Runner cable directly to your equipment.
Or, if you choose a wallplate, simply connect it to the Runner cable behind the wall. Then, connect your equipment to the front of the wallplate.
Easy color coding.
To ensure quick and easy connections, RapidRun Runners are color coded so you can match your cable Runner to the right flying lead or wallplate, depending on your application. (To see an illustration, select Diagrams on the previous page.)
Use a yellow PC/Video Runner Cable with a yellow PC/Video flying lead or wallplate for UXGA video (includes VGA, SVGA, XGA, and SXGA) and stereo audio.
Use a blue Home Theater Runner Cable with a blue flying lead or wallplate for Component, or S-Video and digital audio.
