For the serious do-it-yourselfer, connection specialist Switchcraft has developed a new family of XLR panel-mount connectors, the DE series.
The DE series offers 3–7 silver- or gold-plated pins/contacts in male or female versions. Chassis ground terminal feature is standard. Available in nickel or black finish. They are RoHS-compliant.
Switchcraft says that the DE series mate ideally with its QGPK I/O panels and W series of wall plates.
