etherCONs are ruggedized RJ45 connectors for harsh and demanding environment. RJ45 connectors are used for data transmission like Ethernet and digital audio applications. Typical applications are Cobra Net connectivity (digital audio network), connection of lighting applications, industrial ethernet, AES/EBU transmissions, etc.
The powerCON is a lockable equipment AC connector. It’s used in the audio business for the power lines of lighting applications, amplifiers, etc. It can be used as power supply for industrial applications with the advantage of its locking system in comparison to standard non locking MAINS* connectors. The connectors fulfill all current safety standards such as SEV, UL, CSA and VDE and use a colored power inlet-outlet coding to prevent a short circuit. To transmit 20A @ 250V it has a thicker silver plating (20µ) and enlarged isolation between the Faston contacts.
* Not to be used in the wall of a building structure as a mains power connector.
