Connectors, Switches & EMECH
With the introduction of a number of new product, Cliff Electronics
continues to expand its range of audio jack sockets.
The space-saving new S1 industry standard ¼-inch offset-nose narrow-body
jack socket offers equipment manufacturers higher PCB packing densities. The
S1 may be specified with an optional integral chassis grounding contact
which connects to the barrel of plug for maximum earth continuity ensuring
lowest noise signals and maximum safety. The socket is available in all nose
thread variants. Applications include musical instruments and amplifiers,
effects pedals and all audio equipment where space is at a premium.
Also new, the S9 range of stereo switched jack sockets features contacts
engineered with advanced contact tip technology to accept the widest range
of 'Far Eastern' plug shapes, is right-angle mounted with PCB and solder tag
contact options and nose thread variants. A mono switched version, the S6 is
also available. Cliff’s S9 stereo jack sockets are widely used in
educational equipment, mobile systems for exhibition audio tours, PDAs and
personal audio products.
Further, a range of sealed ¼-inch jack sockets minimizes contact
contamination due to dust and dirt commonly found in fan-cooled equipment or
products which are infrequently used and spend time in storage. The sealed
jack sockets are available with a full range of nose thread variations,
connected earth and RFI washer variants and for further protection from dust
ingress captive hole caps may be specified to seal vacant sockets.
