Littleton, CO (July 23, 2010)—Amphenol has introduced its AX series of XLR connectors, introducing a new, contemporary look and feel for audio interconnect parts.
They are designed to complement modern audio architecture and “fit” within their environment. The unique Australian designed shell and housing feature a one-piece ground latch spring design with an oversized ergonomic latch for quick and easy mating.
The chuck-style cable clamp with integrated split suits cable O.D. 3mm (0.118”) to 8mm (0.314”). Precision machined pin contacts come as standard with compact 14AWG solder buckets to reduce termination time and material wastage during the soldering process. An overmolded boot with flex bend relief provides aesthetics, cable protection and boot retention. They are available in 3, 4 and 5 pole layouts.
Applications include balanced microphone cables, Audio Visual installation cabling, audio mastering and control equipment and lighting control systems and consoles.
