CONNECTORS

"CONNECTRIX" Connectors
CONNECTRIX

Stock "CONNECTRIX" CONNECTORS utilize Neutrik® “D” mounting hole pattern for greater flexibility.

Stock “CONNECTRIX” System Connectors may be used in any stock “CONNECTRIX” System Panel(s). Utilizing the popular mounting pattern of Neutrik® “D” Series connectors with a generous rectangular cutout produces a growing array of adapter-mounted “CONNECTRIX” connectors. The adapter mount is plastic and provides ground isolation between the panel and connector. The current selection of stock “CONNECTRIX” system connectors is constantly changing, so please check out our current product information.

When ordering, please specify connector model number and type of connector as well as panel model number (#MP-100, #PNL-100, #PNL-120, or #PNL-140 Series Panels) the connectors will be loaded into. Connectors are loaded into panels using black, aluminum pop rivets. You may also choose to have your connectors loaded with removable machine screws and locking nuts, for a nominal fee. *NOTE: Specific High Density (HD) and Sub-D pattern connectors will require either 2 or 3 “CONNECTRIX” Horizontal Spaces or 2 or 3 “CONNECTRIX” Vertical Spaces, depending on connectors selected.

“CONNECTRIX” SYSTEM PANEL DESCRIPTION

Many pre-cut stock #PNL-100 Series, #PNL-120 Series “Connectrix” System connector panels and #PSW-100 Series Switchcraft® connector panels are available for the Full Stage Pocket. Standard "Connectrix" and Switchcraft® Panels are created from high strength, tough, aircraft aluminum alloy (6061-T6) that is 1/16" (.062") or 1/8" (.125") thick. The standard panels mount with (4 or 6) self-tapping screws. Each panel is CNC machined to precisely mate with the designated connectors and in the pocket mounting holes. Each Standard "Connectrix" and Switchcraft® Panel is finished with oven cured semi-gloss black powder coat.

Most panels provide header space for custom engraving which is fast and easily accomplished on a separate dedicated CNC engraving machine. The finished panels show bright aluminum in the engraved characters and need not be back filled. ACE standard panels are flat, strong, and rigid like the typical thinner mild steel panels. Because the panels are machined and not punched they stay flat and undistorted unlike punched panels which distort in the punching process. The machined “Connectrix” style cutouts combine popular mounting patterns of the Neutrik “D” series and Switchcraft “E” series connectors with a generous rectangular cutout that mates with a growing array of adapter-mounted standard connectors. The adapter mount is plastic and provides ground isolation between the panel and connector.

Using the “Connectrix” system panel it is possible to mount any combination of modular jacks (RJ45, RJ11 etc.), BNCs, dual RCAs, mic jacks, speaker jacks and numerous other standard connectors without a single custom punch. This system provides for more connectors and mounting options in stock standard ACE panels. The benefit is faster order turn around and lower cost. Less custom fabrication for custom spec results with off-the-shelf stock prices.
