Neutrik Introduces Asymmetrical Push Tabs

Neutrik has introduced Asymmetrical Push Tabs. The new connectors are 20 percent smaller to fit tiny portable electronic devices.

Neutrik said the tabs are positioned to the right (1 o'clock) of the connector as opposed to the conventional 12 noon location. The design for the connector’s use in space-sensitive applications like plug-in modules or small portable device will allow the tabs will help save about 20 percent space savings in a vertical stacking configuration.

Neutrik said in the future it could release special versions of the asymmetric push tabs within the etherCON Cat 5 A series, combo I series and XLR DLX series.

Initially, however, the company said the new tabs will be available as an option for: NC3FAAH1-DA, NC3FAAV1-DA, NC3FAH1-DA, NC3FAH2-DA, NC3FAV1-DA, NC3FAV2-DA, NC5FAH-DA, NC5FAV-DA, NC3FBH1-DA, NC3FBH2-DA, NC3FBV1-DA, NC3FBV2-DA, NCJ6FA-H-DA and NCJ6FA-V-DA.

Neutrik's Asymmetrical Push Tabs will be available the third quarter of 2017.
