Neutrik has released its “TRUE OUTDOOR PROTECTION” product line to serve the permanently increasing demands of the entertainment industry. This new range is approved for outdoor use according to UL50E and is UV resistant and IP65 rated. Connectors available include etherCON (receptacles & cable connectors), XLR (chassis & cable connectors), and powerCON TRUE1 (cable, appliance & rubber sealing covers).
Neutrik also showed off a range of small DANTE interfaces, the “Line I/O to Dante Interface” and the “Mic, Line, AES/EBU I/O to Dante Interface”. Both are available as stand-alone with rubber cover and with rack mount kit.
The new opticalCON DRAGONFLY fiber optic connector series provides a ruggedized and low maintenance hybrid cable connector for indoor/outdoor use, dust and waterproof to IP68 in mated condition and with Fusion Splice Technology making it field repairable. Lastly, for space-sensitive applications, Neutrik has developed the asymmetric push tab (for chassis connectors). By using this new design, a vertical (stacking) space-saving of approx. 20% can be achieved.
