NEUTRIK® WEATHERS THE ELEMENTS WITH HEAVY-DUTY XX-HD SERIES AT LDI 2009
~ New XLR Cable Connector is IP67 Rated in Mated Condition ~
ORLANDO, FL, NOVEMBER 20, 2009 – Neutrik® introduces its XX-HD Series, a heavy-duty XLR cable connector designed specifically for outdoor use, at LDI 2009 (Booth 737). Equipped with hybrid metal/rubber design, the new XX-HD Series is both dust and water protected, meeting the requirements of an IP67 rating, by mating it with the related XX-HD cable connector or Neutrik's MPR-HD chassis connector.
The new XX-HD Series includes a 3-pole female XLR connector (NC3FXX-HD-D) with optional black housing (NC3FXX-HD-B-D) as well as a 3-pole male XLR connector (NC3MXX-HD-D) with optional black housing (NC3MXX-HD-B-D). This long lasting and dependable XLR features a rugged zinc die cast shell and gold contacts.
Designed specifically to withstand the elements associated with outdoor use, the new XX-HD Series also offers Neutrik's chuck type strain relief system for the secure clamping of cables. The XX-HD connector features a rubber sealing jacket which is assembled during the termination of the connector that provides dust and water protection, meeting an IP67 rating (immersed in water of 1m depth) requirement. The rubber sealing jacket also protects against mechanical shock. This version is available as disassembled bulk packaging (25 connectors per box) only.
“With Neutrik's XX-HD Series connectors we have taken our proven XLR technology and created a heavy-duty, road-ready version,” says Pete Milbery, managing director of Neutrik USA. “While many of our existing connectors can be used on the road, this XLR was specifically designed for outdoor use.”
