Cliff Electronics broadens its SLIMS range
Cliff adds space-saving narrow FeedThrough connectors
There are 14 models with 252 variants in the DualSLIMS range which Cliff Electronics has added to its FeedThrough connector range.
Cliff Electronics designs, develops and manufactures connectors and test equipment. The DualSLIMS range allows customers to choose between mounting the connector adapters from the front of the panel for simple and fast changing of connectors in the field, or from the rear which brings a lower profile flush appearance to the connectors when rack mounted or side by side.
The DualSLIM connectors offer panel builders and system integrators the ability to mount up to 20 connectors in a 1U, 19-inch rack panel. The SLIMS range is 19mm wide and is a compact alternative to Cliff’s 26mm-wide XLR form factor FeedThrough product range. Just 16 of the existing XLR design, can be mounted in a 19-inch rack panel.
The DualSLIM FeedThrough connector range is available in a plastic frame with a plain or countersunk diameter 2.5mm or 3.2mm fixing hole. A metal frame version is also available finished in nickel or black with a 3.2mm plain or countersunk fixing holes or M3, #440 thread. Panel cut out dimensions are 17.15 x 22.86mm (0.675 x 0.9-inch) with mounting hole centres of 29mm.
The DualSLIM connector range has been launched with 14 different versions: HDMI, USB3 A-A, USB3 B-A, USB2 B-A, USB2 A-A, USB2 A-B, USB-C F-M, Cat5e, Cat5e Shielded, Cat6, Cat6 Shielded, Cat3, Cat6A Shielded and blank plate. There is a total of 11 variants of each type; the total number of possible variants is 252.
The high panel density and low profile, rear mounted DualSLIM may be used in audio, broadcast, AV and communications installations, medical, education and research, industrial control and space. DualSLIM can also be designed in alongside 1U rack mounted NUC computers and mini-PCs, such as Raspberry Pi; from custom-tuned gaming machines to industrial applications and are suitable for space constrained embedded or IoT systems, digital signage, media production and video conferencing applications.
All of Cliff’s FeedThrough connectors allow standard, off the shelf, connecting cables to be used for internal connectivity, simplifying and speeding up system assembly and facilitating easy repurposing of equipment.
