The Cliff range of test and measurement connectors

A new range of test and measurement connectors is now available from Cliff Electronics, including standard and custom plugs, sockets, probes and test leads. The 2mm and 4mm plugs, sockets, probes and crocodile clips are suitable for professional and industrial test and measurement purposes.

Cliff is also a supplier of test lead sets, made to order semi-custom products that combine components from Cliff’s standard product range, as well as double insulated cable with standard cable ratings of 1KV (PVC), 5KV and 12KV (silicone).

“Cliff’s test and measurement connectors are already designed into many major international brands of measurement instrumentation and Cliff is also a major manufacturer of custom test lead-sets for blue-chip test equipment OEMs,” comments John Hall, General Manager of Cliff Electronics.

The test and measurement connector range includes low and high voltage products conforming to the latest EN601010 regulations. These include a range of 2mm and 4mm plugs with matching chassis and right-angle mounting sockets, a range of touch-proof sockets and a selection of 4mm test probes which also conform to EN601010.

Cliff’s chassis sockets are made from high grade engineering plastics with metal parts precision machined and nickel, silver or gold plated depending on the model. The 4mm versions have a variety of tag options and the most professional models are insert moulded.

Cliff manufacture a range of instrumentation crocodile clips, including a bed-of nails type used in telecommunications testing. Other crocodile clips available include a basic rating 600V CAT III (1000V CAT II) type available in black, red, blue, green, yellow and green/yellow with a 4mm socket at the rear which accepts a shrouded plug or unshrouded probe. A miniature version is available for applications where access is restricted and an all metal uninsulated version with curved jaws which give a good grip on bus-bars for earth testing requirements. PVC boots in various colours are also available for all Cliff crocodile clips.

A popular service offered by Cliff Electronics is the design and manufacture of OEM test lead sets to accompany test equipment. Manufactured in Cliff’s factories in the UK and China, custom leads and assemblies can combine standard power plugs with test leads, custom made instrument plugs, and other customised connectors. Cliff can insert moulded cables into special configurations and proof test up to 20KV.
