• Neutrik Halo, chassis connectors that light up

    Neutrik, provider of professional AVL connectivity solutions, has announced the launch of its new Halo product range, to be debuted on the company’s booth (#14502) at the NAMM Show, in the Anaheim Convention Center, Southern California, USA, from 3 to 5 June.

    Halo products integrate a new patented light ring along with an asymmetrical, non-metallic push tab into the design of the company’s A series chassis connectors. Halo product variants include the NC3FAH2-LR-DAE and NC5FAH-LR-DAE female XLR connectors, the NC3MAH-LR and NC5MAH-LR male XLR connectors, and the NE8FAH-LR-DAE etherCON connector. By placing one or two SMD LEDs on circuit boards, the connectors can be lit up for useful and attractive visual feedback such as input detection, transmission status, connection status, phantom power, operating mode indication, and other useful information.

    Fred Morgenstern, VP Technology Neutrik Americas, commented on the Halo product range: “The new patented NEUTRIK Halo products provide users with numerous benefits. These include an attractive light ring that provides a wealth of visual feedback while eliminating the need for holes in the panel to accommodate LED light pipes. Their ESD-safe material ensures robust connections without having to worry about static electricity, and they provide an easy upgrade path for products using existing connectors. For OEMs interested in integrating the Halo light ring, their design provides the opportunity for differentiation that is both functional and beautiful.”

    Projected availability for the Halo product range is Q3 2022.
