Cliff™ Electronics’ successful range of 24mm-diameter, XLR-panel cut-out connectors has been further extended to include jack sockets and high current terminal posts.
XLR-sized connectors are widely used in audio and broadcast systems and are increasingly popular in instrumentation, medical and industrial products due their flexibility, security and reliability.
Using the standard XLR-chassis-panel cut-out, Cliff™’s wide range of standard and feedthrough connectors can be mounted on control panels with the same hole for every connector required. This simplifies panel design and allows connectors to be mixed-and-matched during assembly as required by individual system requirements.
The new jack sockets are available as either 3.5mm mono or 6.35mm (¼″) stereo. Both models feature plug-operated switching contacts and solder-tag connections.
The TP6 single terminal binding posts are available in red and black and intended for high current applications up to 30A. They incorporate top and cross connecting holes with a diameter of 4mm. They are connected to the system via a threaded spindle and are flammability rated to UL94HB.
The new Cliff™ jack sockets and terminal posts may be ordered with either a 3.5mm countersunk mounting hole or a 2.5mm plain mounting hole.
The Cliff™ XLR-format, feedthrough connector range allows designers to simply integrate audio, video, digital, optical, networking and data feeds into professional equipment for broadcast, lighting, audio, instrumentation and industrial applications.
