Plastic-bodied feedthrough BNC connecter offers savings

Cliff Electronics is adding a panel mounting BNC connector with a moulded plastic body to its very popular range of FeedThrough (FT) connectors. The new BNC RF coaxial connecter is available in 50Ω and 75Ω versions and is fully compatible with existing products and applications while offering customers cost and weight savings.

The Cliff FT series of true, feed through, data connectors for electrical and electronic instrumentation are suitable for developing custom I/O configurations for wall plates, enclosures, rack panels, etc. All fit within a standard XLR panel cut-out and use common standard cabling for front and back connections with no soldering or screw terminal connections required. FT connectors may be mounted from the front or back of a panel and a low rear profile accommodates the tightest behind-the-panel spaces.

These new plastic BNC connectors are nearly half the weight of a conventional version, weighing ~15g compared with metal versions at ~28g. Weight-sensitive applications include mobile devices, instrumentation and avionics systems.

John Hall, Managing Director of Cliff Electronics, comments: "The BNC connector is widely used for RF signals, video, test equipment and instrumentation. In addition to the lighter weight of our new connector there is a cost saving to customers of around 20 per cent. We can also supply our new plastic BNC connectors pre-assembled into rack panels offering systems integrators fast and convenient system assembly." Cliff's XLR format FeedThrough connectors take advantage of the standard 24mm panel cut out widely used in audio and broadcast systems and which is finding increasing popularity instrumentation, medical and industrial applications due to the format's flexibility, security and reliability.

Versions available include GJ45, HDMI, BNC and USB3.0 compliant single and dual USB versions in addition to the existing range which provides Analogue, Digital and Optical Feed-Through connectivity in formats including Firewire, HDMI A-A and 50 ohm BNC versions, USB2 A-to-B and B-to-A "gender chang" 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.

All versions of Cliff's XLR footprint connectors are in full production and available direct from Cliff and via major Distributors in the UK and Europe. For more information go to www.cliffuk.co.uk.
