Active Colette Cables may be inserted between any capsule of the Colette modular system and the microphone amplifier.
The cable itself is highly resistant to stretching, bending and abrasion. Moreover, it does not tend to twist after being suspended, even with temperature changes. This is of importance, e.g. when the microphone is hung from the ceiling.
We recommend that the length not be excessive for the anticipated use, to avoid radio-frequency interference from sources such as SCR-equipped lighting boards. From experience, cable length of 5 m is satisfactory. Lengths greater than this may be required when hanging a microphone from a ceiling, but we do not recommend runs in excess of 20 m since the circuit up to the microphone amplifier is unbalanced.
The capsule-side housing of the KC ends on a shaft with 8 mm diameter. This makes the KC, just as the CCM, compatible to clips and suspensions for 8 mm, e.g. SGC, SGCM, HC, STC, etc.
