Kleinbeck Engineering cable, basics

If you are looking for design information on my work, you are required to pay for it in advance and sign a non-disclosure agreement in advance. The information disclosed here is similar to industrial catalog.

Type 1 cables are basic cables designed for great performance at a reasonable price point. Type 1 cables have shielding on the interconnects and power cords. Each shield system is specifically designed for the particular requirements. Type 1 cables are not magnetically shielded.

Kleinbeck Engineering Type 1 power cords are specifically designed for audio systems. The power cord may be the most important cable in an audio system. A properly designed high quality power cord with a simple but highly effective shielding design will have a positive effect on a electronic system. The shielding for power cords is a woven tin plated copper sleeve with an outer covering of neoprene. A fabric outer cover is available at an additional cost.

Kleinbeck Engineering interconnect, speaker, and some digital cables use air as the primary dielectric in gas tube suspended conductor configuration (conductor assemblies). Each conductor is placed in a tube consisting of hospital grade polyethylene tubing. The tubes are sealed at the ends to protect the conductors. In our cable design the capacitance of the cable is controlled by the tube size, and electrical break down voltage is determined by the polyethylene tube wall thickness. A cable consists of 2 or more “conductor assemblies” arranged in a topological configuration specifically designed to reduce mechanical resonance, and have high electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) rejection properties accomplished by twisting the conductor around each other.

Type 2 cables have woven Type 1 outer shield replaced with woven conductive magnetic shielding, which is highly effective in the lower frequency ranges, yielding a cable design with full spectrum shielding for EMI and RFI.

Interconnection and speaker cables are available in copper or silver. I get many questions regarding copper and silver in cables systems, this link handles most of them. https://sciencing.com/copper-vs-silver-wire-conductivity-5863373.html Belden has a very educational web site for learning more about cabling also.

These cables are custom and can be finished in fabric or neoprene rubber.
