neutrik rean chassis connectors

Neutrik is shipping its new REAN airtight chassis connectors. Available for both XLR and locking RJ45/Ethernet, the new REAN airtight chassis connectors provide rugged durability and robust connectivity tailored for outdoor and other harsh environments.

REAN male, female and duplex male/female airtight XLR chassis connectors are available in both three-pole and five-pole configurations, and are ideal for both audio and DMX/lighting applications. With both D-size and duplex form factors, the connectors feature gold-plated contacts for long life and enhanced durability. They are designed for vertical PCB termination.

REAN RJ45/Ethernet airtight connectors are available with three termination options — straight RJ45 feedthrough, 90° upwards RJ45 feedthrough, and Horn type receptacle. All variants include a D-size metal flange with push latch locking and are rated for CAT 5e performance.

Both the REAN XLR and RJ45/Ethernet airtight chassis connectors share several characteristics designed to provide robust and reliable connectivity. These include IP65 weather resistance both in the mated condition when mated to REAN Z series cable connectors and unmated when sealed with their integrated protection caps. The connectors are made from UL94 V-0 rated materials to meet all modern safety standards and feature rugged, black diecast shells for minimal reflection on the stage. All REAN airtight chassis connectors are available in single-bag packaging or bulk packaging for OEMs.
