Latches are silver colored. powerCON TRUE1 TOP products offer the same input and output cable and chassis connectors as the standard powerCON TRUE1 series and feature the same benefits including breaking capacity under load, IP65 weather resistance, direct cable-to-cable coupling, and a variety of input, output, and duplex in/out chassis connectors.

etherCON® TOP

IP65 and UV-resistant etherCON® TOP products feature rugged RJ45 cable carriers in two colors; Cat 5 chassis connectors for vertical PCB mounting, horizontal PCB mounting, and D-size feedthrough; and an SE8FD-TOP outdoor assembly kit.

This marks the first time that Neutrik has offered IP-rated female XLR chassis connectors. Featuring gold-plated contacts, IP65 ingress protection and UV light resistance, these connectors maintain their sealing both when in use and when disconnected.

Peter Milbery, President of Neutrik USA commented on the company’s new TOP products, “Weather influences—particularly moisture, dust, and the sun’s ultraviolet rays—can have a profound impact on the quality of signals commonly found in live event production. The new True Outdoor Protection group of products is specifically engineered to provide robust, optimized performance under the most challenging conditions. I believe these products will prove invaluable for use in a wide range of applications. I’m confident our customers will find much to appreciate in these new products.”
