Connectors, Switches & EMECH
Cliff Electronics has launched a Cat 6A connector to its range of 24mm-diameter XLR Panel cut-out connectors.
The widely used Cat 6 standard is an established standardised twisted pair cable and connector configuration for Ethernet and other network physical layers that is backwards compatible with the Category 5/5e and Category 3 cable standards.
The new XLR format connector is offered with a black plastic flange or a robust cast aluminium version and can be obtained as a single connecter or pre-assembled in 1U, 19” rack panels with up to 16 XLR panel cut-outs providing systems integrators uncomplicated assembly, reducing manufacturing time, component count and cost.
John Hall, managing director of Cliff Electronics, comments; “Cat 6A offers network installers the ever faster data transfer rates required by commercial and industrial systems. Our XLR format Cat 6A allows system integrators to mix and match connector solutions from our wide range of audio, opto, data and power connectors while only having to use one size of panel cut-out. Our very wide range of standard and FeedThrough connectors simplifies panel design and improves product aesthetics.”
