Right-Angle Multi-Position XLR Audio Connectors
Slim design for compact panel mounting.
Can be “clocked” during installation to avoid cable tangles.
From CLIFF™ Electronics.
CLIFF™ Electronics, leaders in the design, development and manufacture of connectors and test equipment, announce the introduction of the new RAMP (Right-Angle Multi-Position) versions of industry-standard XLR audio connectors to their connectivity product range.
Key applications include audio, broadcast, control and instrumentation systems for studios, concert venues, public buildings, schools and offices as well as laboratories and industrial installations.
Greater flexibility and convenience while facilitating more compact system design.
Manufactured in durable metal, the right-angled, cable-mounted, RAMP, XLR connectors are initially available in male 3, 4 or 5 pole versions and female 3 or 5 pole versions. The slim design allows for mounting a number of connectors in confined conditions such as compact control panels and wall boxes. RAMP connectors are rated at <50 V with current loads of 15 A for 3 pin, 10 A for 4 pin and 7.5 A for 5 pin versions.
The new RAMP XLR connector range can accommodate cable diameters from 3.5 to 8 mm. Each connector is supplied with a black rear boot which provides strain relief. Nine other colour color options (white, grey, gray, green, yellow, red, blue, brown and orange) allow for panel coding and cable identification that saves time during installation. Now all those XLR connectors need not look the same!
RAMP XLR connectors can be mounted in one of eight “clocked” positions (angles), including the conventional down facing position, to allow for easier, tangle-free, cable drops on the same panel.
The positions and colours colors may be selected on site during commissioning to reduce part numbers, inventory and ordering MOQs. Coloured Colored strain relief boots are available in single colour color packs or convenient rainbow packs, avoiding any wastage of unused colours.
Nick Leppard, technical sales at CLIFF™ Electronics says, “Our new RAMP XLR connector range offers designers, systems integrators and installers greater flexibility and convenience while facilitating more compact system design.”
CLIFF™’s wide range of XLR, DualSLIM and RAFT form factor types allows designers to integrate audio, video, digital, optical, networking and data feeds into professional equipment for broadcast (studio and mobile), lighting, audio, medical diagnostic and treatment equipment, PoE and industrial applications, instrumentation and control connectivity.
CLIFF™’s XLR-format connector range may be mounted on 1U × 19″ rack panels with up to 16 standard connectors. Blank and pre-assembled panels are available.
The complete range of Cliff™ XLR-audio and XLR-format connectors are in full production and available direct or via major international distributors.
