CustomisableCustomizable Recessed Socket Plates
XRP plates from CLIFF™ Electronics provide custom connectivity in a standard XLR cut-out.
CLIFF™ Electronics are a market leader in feedthrough and standard connectors in the industry-standard, 24mm, XLR-panel cut-out. They are now offering panel builders and system integrators a user customisablecustomizable connectivity option.
The new XRP customisablecustomizable recessed socket plates continue to use the very popular XLR panel cut-out and allow customers to fit the connector of their choice or retro-fit a connecter to a system at a later time. This facility will be particularly useful for non-standard and more esoteric connectors not easily available from component suppliers. The blank XRP socket plate also allows for cables to be passed though using a grommet or cable gland and push buttons or LED indicators to be mounted.
Particularly useful for non-standard and more esoteric connectors.
The new XRP plates can be mounted into the 19″ rack panels provided by Cliff™ for users to configure or for factory assembly.
John Hall, Managing Director of CLIFF™ Electronics, comments; “Our range of XLR-mounted standard and feedthrough connectors is growing rapidly as customers continue to find new applications for them. There will always be requests for non-standard or specialisedspecialized connectors in quantities which may not be viable for us to manufacture. That is why we have introduced the XRP customisablecustomizable recessed socket plates which offer an XLR-based mounting platform to which users can fit any connector or accessory they wish. Should the end application reach good sales volumes we will always consider putting it into production.”.
The Cliff™ feedthrough series of true, feedthrough, data connectors for electrical and electronic instrumentation are perfect when developing custom I/O configurations for wall plates, enclosures, rack panels etc. All fit within a standard XLR panel cut-out and use common, standard cabling for front and back connections with no soldering or screw terminal connections required. Feedthrough connectors may be mounted from the front or back of a panel and a low rear profile accommodates the tightest behind-the-panel spaces.
Cliff™’s XLR-format connectors take advantage of the standard 24mm panel cut-out widely used in audio and broadcast systems. This is increasingly popular in instrumentation, medical and industrial applications due to the format’s flexibility, security and reliability.

Analogue, digital and optical feedthrough connectivity is available in formats including Firewire, HDMI A-to-A and 50 ohm BNC versions, USB2 A-to-B and B-to-A changer sockets and USB3 to USB3 in various configurations.
