A series of rugged steel stageboxes offering a vast range of connection possibilities when fitted with ‘Universal’ series connectors on the top plate and popular multicore connectors on the ends. A robust, folded chassis forms the basis for the box, with a choice of top plates with up to 48 ‘Universal’ cutouts. Top plate ‘Universal’ connector holes are numbered sequentially (e.g. 1-12, 1-16 etc), and may be re-labelled using self adhesive labels 49-382. End-plates are available with mounting apertures for EDAC, Contact, MIL26 or Tourline multipin connectors. They have a folded flange which protects the connectors and can be assembled facing in or out, when they form handles. Supplied with necessary hardware to assemble box, including plastic feet. Finished in black.
Neutrik ‘D’ Series Connectors
The ‘D’ series mounting flange is used by Neutrik for a wide variety of connector types including male and female XLR’s, 3-pole jack socket (A and B gauge), recessed RCA (phono), ‘Ethercon’ RJ45 data connector, USB, Firewire, ‘Speakon’ loudspeaker, ‘Powercon’ mains power connectors and recessed BNC sockets. Most connector types can be front or rear mounted on the panel. These stageboxes are designed to offer the highest possible connector density in most cases, but the Neutrik ‘Speakon’ loudspeaker connectors must be alternately spaced (horizontally) with blanking plates as the width of the cable connector is greater than that of the chassis connector. It is strongly recommended that 42-029 Insulating cover is used with ‘Speakon’ and ‘Powercon’ connectors to protect against accidental contact with live pins at the rear of the front panel. Neutrik locking jack sockets may be front or rear mounted but must have the latch bar removed if rear mounted.
Switchcraft EH series D-SUB connectors
This elegant solution allows Switchcraft 9 pin and HDD15 pin D-sub back-to-back adaptors to be mounted in standard universal cutouts.
Canford Universal Series Connectors
Canford has expanded the possibilities by offering a further range of connectors and switches mounted on insulating mouldings which fit the ‘universal’ cut-outs. Flush mount and recessed adaptor plates, available in black or white, fitted with connectors should be selected from the ‘Universal Series Connectors’ range. Undrilled plates can be used to blank off unused holes or drilled to accept a wide variety of other connectors, switches and indicators.
Most universal connectors are ideally mounted from the back of the top plate using M3x10mm pan head screws, nuts and shakeproof washers or nyloc nuts, but may be mounted on the outside surface using countersunk screws. Many Neutrik DLX series connectors are available with M3 threaded mounting holes for rear mounting requiring only M3x10mm pan head screws.
Connectors and hardware such as Universal connector U-bars, fixing screws, nuts and washers should be ordered separately. Mounting hardware finish: Zinc-plated black passivated (ZBP), bright nickel passivated (BNP), zinc-plated clear passivated (ZCP). Other screw and nut styles are also available, see fasteners
Canford stageboxes can be supplied assembled and/or wired to your specific requirements. End plates and front plates can also be supplied with custom cutouts. Please contact Technical Support.
