The Neutrik True Outdoor Protection (TOP) series was designed for the increasing demands on interconnection systems. In particular, in harsh environment applications, where entertainment equipment such as PA systems, signs, LED screens or lighting, require an environmentally sealed connector. These UV resistant, ruggedized, sealed connectors are IP65 and UL50E rated.
The TOP series is a heavy-duty, locking, XLR connector for outdoor applications. The connector is sealed when mated with a related cable connector from the TOP series. It is available in 3 and 5 pin configurations, with gold-plated contacts.
These universal housing connectors, common to most Neutrik connector ranges, allows simpler metalworking and more flexibility of use. The Polyamide shell, with 24mm cutout diameter, can be mounted from the front. M3 stainless-steel, countersunk screws are recommended. Each mounting hole has an o-ring seal, which should be lubricated with silicone prior to use. Female connectors have a stainless-steel latch. To the rear of the connector, there are solder-bucket contacts, and a TPE gasket for sealing. An optional rubber plug is available to protect against ingress of dust and dirt when not in use.
