Cliff expands XLR format feed-through data connectors range

Cliff Electronics range of XLR-Format Feedthrough Data Connectors has been further increased with the addition of Firewire, HDMI A-A and 50 ohm BNC versions. Cliff's extensive FT connector range is designed to fit into the industry standard 24mm diameter XLR connector panel cutout simplifying panel design and manufacture and improving design aesthetics and has been very well received by product designers and system integrators

The new models have rugged zinc/nickel XLR housings, may be front or rear mounted to control panels and the Firewire and HDMI models may be specified with an optional socket sealing cover is available to prevent the ingress of dust when not in use or when in transit. The FT connector range allows designers to integrate audio, video, digital, optical, networking and data feeds into professional equipment for broadcast, lighting, audio and industrial applications.

John Hall, General Manager of Cliff Electronics, comments: "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 new BNC and HDMI FT connectors are ideal for video feeds and the Firewire connector is being used in a rapidly increasing number of applications. We are very pleased to find 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."

These new additions to Cliff's Feedthrough connector range join the fast-growing range of feed-through connectors which are all packaged in the widely used 24mm diameter XLR connector format and depending on model are available in black plastic or with a rugged die-cast aluminium fascia finished in nickel or black to enhance the high-quality, high-performance and prestige image of this new product range.

Other models in the range provide Digital and Optical Feed-Through connectivity in formats including 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 & Simplex), UTP and FTP RJ45s in both Cat6 and Cat5e (shielded and unshielded), Toslink, RCA Phono and HDMI and blanking plates. Further options will continue to be introduced throughout 2016 and custom design enquiries are welcomed.

All versions, metal and plastic, share the same features and dimensions and offer a complete range of very cost effective audio, data, and fibre connectors, all of which can both front or rear mounted into industry-standard 24mm XLR connector mounting holes. The new FT Series are simple to mount into any panel designed to accept XLR connectors including instrumentation, control and rack panels, wall-plates, etc. For ease of assembly the Cliff FT Series are available with standard or countersunk mounting holes. Bezels are available in 7 colours to identify the function of FT connectors when fitted to a control panel

The FT Series offers true feed-through connection, allowing standard cabling to be used to connect at both front and rear, eliminating the need to solder or terminate the connections and simplifying and speeding up assembly.

Cliff's FT series has already found widespread use in many system integration applications for custom I/O devices. Typical applications include broadcast, AV installations, systems integration, home theatre, automation, solar power and a growing range of industrial applications including instrumentation, industrial control and data acquisition.
