Cliff takes a vertical approach to professional audio jack sockets

There is a range of switching options in the professional audio and broadcast jack sockets in the S1VS series by Cliff Electronics. The compact, vertical PCB mounting devices are industry standard quarter-inch (6.35mm) with a threaded metal “nose” for rugged through-panel mounting. They also securely connect locking plugs and grounding to a system chassis and have a durable nylon body. They are supplied with mounting hardware unassembled.

There are four versions of the tip ring sleeve (TRS) jack sockets available offering and a choice of switching options. The stereo models are FM6700, with normally closed contacts for tip and ring, FM6701, with closed contact at tip only, FM7603, with no switching and mono version FM6704 with a normally closed contact at the tip. Solder connection or PCB mounting is via a multi-purpose tag which simplifies product design and manufacturing inventory, adds Cliff.

Key specifications of the S1VS series of jack sockets include minimum life expectancy of 10,000+operations, operation from -10 to +70 degrees C, maximum contact current of 5A and minimum withstand voltage of 1,000V DC. The compact vertical mounting design has a 24mm stand-off to provide high packing density and the body is designed for auto-insertion.

All versions of Cliff’s quarter-inch/6.35mm jack sockets are in full production and available direct from Cliff and via major distributors in the UK and Europe.
