Cliff Electronics introduce RAMP – Right Angle Multi-Position – XLR Connectors to connectivity product range


Cliff Electronics leaders in the design, development and manufacture of connectors and test equipment, announce the introduction of the new RAMP – Right Angle Multi-Position  – version of industry standard XLR Connectors to their connectivity product range. Key applications include audio, broadcast, control and instrumentation systems for studios, concert venues, public buildings, schools and offices as well as laboratories and industrial installations.

Manufactured in durable metal the right-angled cable mounted RAMP XLR connectors are available in male with 3, 4 or 5 poles and female 3 and 5 pole versions. The slim design allows for mounting a number of connectors in confined conditions such as compact control panels and wall boxes. RAMP connectors are rated at <50V with current loads of 15A for 3 pin, 10A for 4 pin and 7.5A for 5 pin versions.

The new RAMP XLR connector range can accommodate cable diameters from 3.5 to 8mm. Each connector is supplied with a black rear boot which provides strain relief. Nine other colour options (white, grey, green, yellow, red, blue, brown and orange) allow for panel coding and cable identification that saves users time during installation – now all those XLR leads don’t look the same!

RAMP XLR right-angle connectors can be mounted in the conventional down facing position or at 8 other positions/angles to allow for easier, tangle free, cable drops on the same panel.

The positions and colours may be selected on site during commissioning to reduce part numbers, inventory and ordering MOQs. Coloured boot/strain reliefs are available in single colour packs or convenient rainbow packs,  avoiding wastage of unused colours.

Leaders in the design and manufacture of standard and FeedThrough connectors, Cliff’s wide range of XLR, DualSLIMS and RAFT 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.

Cliff’s FeedThrough connector range may be mounted on 19” rack panels with up to 16 standard XLR connectors or 20 of the DualSLIMS. Blank and pre-assembled panels are available direct from Cliff.

Nick Leppard, Technical Sales Manager of Cliff Electronics, says” Our new RAMP XLR connector range offers designers, systems integrators and installers greater flexibility and convenience while facilitating more compact system design.
