Neutrik unveils XX-HD Series XLR cable connector
Neutrik has introduced its XX-HD Series, a heavy-duty XLR cable connector designed specifically for outdoor use.
Equipped with a hybrid metal/rubber design, the new XX-HD Series is both dust and water protected, meeting the requirements of an IP67 rating, by mating it with the related XX-HD cable connector or Neutrik’s MPR-HD chassis connector.
The new XX-HD Series includes a three-pole female XLR connector (NC3FXX-HD-D) with optional black housing (NC3FXX-HD-B-D) as well as a three-pole male XLR connector (NC3MXX-HD-D) with optional black housing (NC3MXX-HD-B-D). The XX-HD Series features a rugged zinc die-cast shell and gold contacts.
Designed specifically to withstand the elements associated with outdoor use, the new XX-HD Series also offers Neutrik’s chuck-type strain relief system for the secure clamping of cables.
