WILMINGTON, Mass. – Electronics distributor Heilind Electronics Inc. in Wilmington, Mass., is stocking the AAA series low-profile XLR connectors from Switchcraft Inc. in Chicago.
The low-profile connectors are ideal for speakers, amplifiers, mixers, signal processors and other applications where small size and low weight are critical.
The XLR design builds on the durability and ease-of-use of traditional AAA series connectors by combining the same connector body with a smaller plastic backshell. As a result, the low-profile connector is 75 percent lighter and 80 percent smaller than its R series XLR counterpart.
Adding to these benefits for small size, weight, and power consumption (SWaP) is the 360 degree orientation of the cable, which exits the connector sideways and can easily be adjusted to face any direction.
All Switchcraft AAA series connectors feature a two-piece design with integral strain relief for quick assembly. The pins are pre-loaded into the front shells, further reducing assembly time.
The low-profile XLR connectors feature 15-amp current ratings and a long service life as long as 5,000 mating cycles for signal processing and similar applications. These 3-to-7-position connectors are available in four colors, with male or female contacts.
