Right angle FeedThrough connector offers more access to enclosures and panels
To provide CAT5e RJ45, CAT6 RJ45 and HDMI connectivity in wall boxes, panels and enclosures, Cliff Electronics has added a right angled version to its FeedThrough connector range.
This addition, the RAFT (Right Angle FeedThrough) connector is suitable for connections in wall mounted boxes where access has to be from the top or bottom. They also reduce the space required for interconnection at the rear of rack panel systems and provide vertical connections for convenient top to bottom wiring.
The RAFT is available in two widths. It is available as 26 x 31mm, the standard width of the company’s XLR connector. This model has a panel cut out diameter of 24mm. The second option is the compact DualSLIMS which measures 19 x 35.5mm and which fits into a narrow 17.15 x 22.86mm panel cut out.
Connector options available in both sizes include CAT5e RJ45, CAT6 RJ45 and HDMI. There are plastic or natural and black metal bodies available for the DualSLIM version and plastic-only available at present for the XLR cut out types. Mounting options include front or back panel mounting with 2.5mm plain or 3.2mm countersunk holes or M3 and #4-40 UNC threaded versions.
Cliff’s FeedThrough connectors allow standard, off the shelf, connecting cables to be used for internal connectivity. This simplifies and speeds up system assembly, said the company, and also facilitates the repurposing of equipment.
Cliff’s wide range of XLR and DualSLIMS form factor types allows designers to integrate audio, video, digital, optical, networking and data feeds into professional equipment for broadcast (studio and mobile), lighting, audio, medical diagnostic and treatment equipment, PoE and industrial applications, instrumentation and control connectivity.
Its FeedThrough connector range may be mounted on 19-inch rack panels with up to 16 standard XLR connectors or 20 of the DualSLIMS. Blank and pre-assembled panels are available directly from Cliff.
