Cliff Electronics is reminding machine builders, system integrators, panel builders and OEMs that it delivers UK-manufactured products from stock held in it its own factory. Thanks to its flexible UK-based design and manufacturing facility, the company is well placed to fulfil the demands of its customers and continues to grow and expand into new markets.

Cliff's terminal posts are widely used in audio, test and measurement and for connections on power supplies. Standard options include a choice of colours, either two or three stud lengths and different terminations. There are various mounting hardware options, metal parts are nickel plated as standard with gold to special order, and an antimagnetic no-nickel version of TP60 terminal is available.

The socket body is made from durable nylon for superior performance and in a variety of styles including, offset nose, vertical, mini and stackjack to facilitate panel design. A number of switching options are available for designers to incorporate into their systems.

Cliff's fastest growing range of products is their highly successful XLR-Format Feedthrough connector range, offering a very wide range of audio, video and data connectivity in the industry standard 24mm diameter XLR connector panel cutout.

Cliff FT connectors are available in plastic or rugged zinc/nickel XLR housings finished in nickel or black and may be front or rear mounted to control panels. The Firewire and HDMI models may be specified with an optional socket sealing cover to prevent the ingress of dust when not in use or when in transit.
