Neutrik creates new interference-free XLR connector
At NAB2007 (booth #N8526), Neutrik will unveil its EMC-XLR cable connector, which is designed specifically to guard against electromagnetic interference.
The company said the new EMC-XLR connector addresses the problems associated with leaky audio signal connections, which can introduce unwanted noise into an otherwise clean audio signal.
Each EMC-XLR connector consists of three-pole male/female XLR cable connectors with integrated LC-filters, which avoid the RD interference and LF noise. There is also a 360-degree shield contact on the female connector that ensures secure shielding and chassis contact.
The new connector solves a variety of problems, such as ground loops, RF interference and Pin 1 problems. They work well in RF-sensitive production environments, such as live events and on-stage applications.
