Nautilus Power Strip

No Compromise Approach To Power Distribution

US Nautilus

The Nautilus is the Cardas approach to pure power distribution.


Its elegant design is centered around premium, custom designed connectors. Point-to-Point wiring with heavy gauge, Ultra Pure solid core copper conductors. Passive RFI/EMI protection on every outlet, the same filters found on our flagship power cables. 3D printed wire guides ensure the uniformity of each coil. Capable of delivering clean, high current to all six outlets. An attractive case echoes design features from the original Cardas Golden 6A power strip. This power strip is perfect for anyone who wants their entire system connected to one high quality device.

Standard Terminations: Standard 15 amp IEC inlet and Cardas 4181US premium power outlets. A 20 amp IEC is also available. Assembled by hand in Bandon, Oregon.

 

Conductors: Solid core Grade 1, 99.9999% pure oxygen free copper insulated with extruded PVC. Ground conductor is Grade 1, 99.9999% pure oxygen free cop- per, gauge sizes scaled to Golden Ratio proportions. Cross-field layer geometry, insulated in a PFA jacket.

Chassis: Antiresonant extruded aluminum body with copper plated brass end caps. 1 kilogram copper earth plate.

Ground Wire

Grounding issues between components leads to noise and hum. A central grounding point eliminates these problems, leading to greater dynamics, im- proved spatial imaging, and a lowering of the noise floor - especially in environ- ments with an excess of radio frequency and electromagnetic interference.

Cardas 17.5 AWG multi-stranded Litz conductor Ground Wires are ideal for use with the Cardas Nautilus Power Strip. A Cardas CAB Banana connects to the 4mm jack next to the IEC on the Nautilus. Several Cardas Ground Wires can be attached to the CAB Banana, and from there, to unused line-level connectors on your equipment (ie, an RCA or XLR jack). In addition, some audio equipment has ground points to which a spade can be attached.

 

Every sound system is unique, and Cardas Ground Wires can be purchased individually, or in sets. Any length is available, and Cardas Ground Wires are available with nearly any possible connector, allowing you to create a custom loom for grounding your system.

 

Standard Termination: Spade, Banana, XLR, RCA. Terminations will depend on your equipment’s available connection points and the central grounding point that you’re using.


To use the Nautilus Power Strip as your central ground point we suggest a Cardas CAB to which a single banana and up to three spades can be attached. Cardas Ground Wires are compatible with other makes of ground boxes that use spade or banana connectors. Refer to the manufactures of your equipment if you have any question on how to properly attached a ground point.
