Significant features




Technical Data

Designed to receive both mono and stereo ¼” jack plugs, the S4 socket is produced from grade 1, black, nylon and is supplied with a high quality, chrome-plated, brass nut. Mounting is effected by screwing the chrome facia nut, (with plastic bezel), into a threaded bush which protrudes from the body. Coloured Colored bezels are available for identification purposes. Contacts can be supplied with our special low noise Ni-Ag, tin or gold plating and, in addition to the standard solder-tag version, there are six different PCB mounting styles available. The S4 can also be supplied with prefitted EMI / RFI screen if required.


When ordering, please state the contact arrangement required, with a plug inserted, from the front of the jack socket, using the following codes.

B - Break, M - Make, S - Single, N - No contact.

For example, S4/BMB/PC-C is a three-pole, stereo, jack socket; first contact - Break, second contact - Make and third contact - Break, with PC-C style contacts.
