23-01-2017 | Cliff Electronics | Subs & Systems

Cliff Electronics has introduced a 1U 19” rack mounting panel to aid system builders with integration of their very successful range of XLR-Format FeedThrough connectors. The panel has a black anodized finish and will accept 16 FeedThrough connectors and features a labelling strip for end users to identify the function or individual connectors. The panel is also fitted with a strain-relief bar for tying internal cables to, relieving pressure on internal cable assemblies and improving system reliability.

The company’s Feedthrough connectors provide one of the widest ranges of digital, optical and analogue available to system builders. The range now includes Firewire, HDMI A-A and 50ohm BNC versions, USB2 A-to-B and B-to-A ‘gender change’ sockets, high speed USB Type – C, USB3 to USB3 in all gender changing configurations - A-A, A-B and B-A. Also available are all popular data and Ethernet connectors including USB 2.0 and 3.0, LC and SC fibre (Duplex and Simplex), UTP and FTP RJ45s in both Cat6 and Cat5e (shielded and unshielded), Toslink, RCA Phono and HDMI and blanking plates.

John Hall, general manager of Cliff Electronics, comments; “The introduction of our new FeedThrough connector mounting panel enables us to supply system builders with a complete panel mounting interconnection system. Demand for our FT connectors continues to grow and we are being asked to support more applications on a regular basis. The industry standard XL format speeds up our development time and allows our customers to simplify and standardise their panel design, improving flexibility and reducing cost. Our FeedThrough connecters are being employed in our traditional audio broadcast market and many more applications in instrumentation and industrial markets where our ability to provide custom solutions is welcomed.”
