02 November 2010
Cliff Electronics has recently introduced a new, patented DC socket to the market.
The innovative design of the DC10L dual DC socket means that it can accept 2.1mm and 2.5mm plugs, allowing manufacturers to simplify their design and procurement processes, reducing inventory and lowering costs through economies of scale.
Two models are available; the DC-10L dual socket, pin ring type, with switch contacts and chassis mounting solder tag connection and the DC-10LP dual socket, pin ring type, with switch contacts and 90° PCB mounting. Both are rated at 12V / 5A.
Other standard features include body material made from PBT for superior temperature characteristics, tin plated copper alloy contacts, and RoHS compliance.
Typical applications for the DC10L include power connections to audio, medical, telecom and broadcast equipment and many types of portable devices. The DC10L is available direct from Cliff or from Distrelec, ELFA, Premier Farnell, CPC, Schukat and TME as well as Cliff Electronics Inc. in the USA.
