XRP customisable recessed socket plates

Cliff Electronics is offering panel builders and system integrators as a user customisable connectivity option.

The XRP Customisable Recessed Socket Plates continue to use the XLR panel cut out and allow users to fit a connector of their choice or retro-fit a connecter to a system at a later time. The blank XRP socket plate also allows for cables to be passed though using a grommet or cable gland and push buttons or LED indicators to be mounted.

The Cliff XRP Customisable Recessed Socket Plates offer 3mm and 12mm recesses to accommodate low profile and deeper connection options, and are available with countersunk or plain mounting holes. Metal versions can be supplied with an M3 thread in the mounting hole. They are also provided with a drilling guide in the centre of the connector mounting area to ensure correct assembly.

The XRP customisable recessed socket plates can be mounted into the 19” rack panels provided by Cliff for users to configure or for factory assembly.

The Cliff FT series of true, feed through, data connectors for electrical and electronic instrumentation are suited for developing custom I/O configurations for wall plates, enclosures, and rack panels. All fit within a standard XLR panel cut-out and use common standard cabling for front and back connections with no soldering or screw terminal connections required. FT connectors may be mounted from the front or back of a panel and a low rear profile. Pre-assembled 19” rack panels fitted with a range of FT and standard connectors are available from Cliff to simplify end system assembly.
