ITT Interconnect Solutions has developed a miniature audio connector solution. Known as the Mini-XL audio connector series, the circular device has a quick one-touch connect/disconnect and allows withstanding extreme field use.

"These connectors are 40 percent smaller than the standard XLR connectors," said Keith Teichmann, director of marketing, ITT. "The connectors were created to meet the demands of video, broadcast and recording customers for higher quality compact audio applications."

Fitting high-density applications, the Mini-XL audio connectors may be used in TV cameras, mixers/recording equipment, microphones, amplifiers/speakers, medical instruments, industrial control devices and test equipment.

These are available in 3- to 6-pin contact arrangements. The RoHS-compliant connectors can be used both in cable and panel-mount applications. A durable socket insulator reduces vibration and electrical noise. The Mini-XL connector features disconnect latch lock, gold-plated contacts and low reflectivity satin finish. The rear housing (cap) can be made available in plastic or metal for both male and female plugs.
