New three and five pole XLR connectors as well as RJ45/Ethernet models.


Charlotte, NC – September 2023… Neutrik Americas, part of the Neutrik Group, the world’s leading provider of professional AVL connectivity solutions, is pleased to announce the availability of new REAN airtight chassis connectors. Available for both XLR and locking RJ45/Ethernet, the new REAN airtight chassis connectors provide rugged durability and robust connectivity tailored for outdoor and other harsh environments.

REAN male, female, and duplex male/female airtight XLR chassis connectors are available in both 3-pole and 5-pole configurations, and are ideal for both audio and DMX/lighting applications. With both D-size and duplex form factors, the connectors feature gold-plated contacts for long life and enhanced durability. They are designed for vertical PCB termination

REAN RJ45/Ethernet airtight connectors are available with three termination options—straight RJ45 feedthrough, 90° upwards RJ45 feedthrough, and Horn type receptacle. All variants include a D-size metal flange with push latch locking and are rated for CAT 5e performance.

Both the REAN XLR and RJ45/Ethernet airtight chassis connectors share several characteristics designed to provide robust and reliable connectivity. These include IP65 weather resistance both in the mated condition when mated to REAN Z series cable connectors and unmated when sealed with their integrated protection caps. The connectors are made from UL94 V-0 rated materials to meet all modern safety standards and feature rugged, black diecast shells for minimal reflection on the stage. All REAN airtight chassis connectors are available in single bag packaging or bulk packaging for OEMs

Fred Morgenstern, VP of Technology at Neutrik Americas, commented on the new REAN airtight chassis connectors, “The new airtight chassis connectors from REAN will be especially appealing to OEMs who use air pressure for their ingress testing as well as to other customers for whom sealed connectors can provide valuable weather resistance. With their standard D-size or duplex form factors, most of these connectors will integrate seamlessly into existing environments. Their PCB mounting or feedthrough terminations make them especially appropriate to modern visual effects equipment designs.”

The new REAN airtight chassis connectors are available now. For additional information, please contact Neutrik Americas at 704.972.3050.
