New Low Profile Hybrid XLR Connector

Amphenol offers 15% space saving over traditional range within their Audio connector line.

The hybrid connector pitch has reduced from 27mm (1.062”) to 23mm (0.905”) and connector height reduces from 30mm (1.181”) to 25.3mm (0.996”). Utilizing the industry standard A-Type panel cutout it allows standard XLR connectors to be mounted using the same metal work tooling.

The expansion of the product portfolio contains the low profile C-Type XLR connector in 6, 9 and 10 pole configurations. The combination XLR receptacle and 6.35mm (1/4”) jack connector can be utilized for mono or stereo applications with the option of switching stereo and ground contacts.

The new products are available with gold plated horizontal or vertical printed circuit board contacts with chassis grounding to the front panel via the mounting screws. The XLR receptacle can be optioned with or without a latch (retention spring).

Typical applications include microphone pre-amplifiers, speakers, studio monitors, power amplifiers and audio interface devices. The hybrid connector meets the increasing demand for reducing valuable printed circuit board space.
