The Neutrik NC3FD-LX-0 - Deluxe Series Three-Pin Female XLR Solder Connector features an all metal housing for better protection from RF interference and shielding from electromagnetic fields. A duplex ground contact supports the integrity of the contact between the chassis and cable, and a unique cage type female contact on the third pole increases the electrical conductivity and reduces the wear on the mated male contact. The female contact also incorporates a solder barrier to prevent liquid solder from coming into contact with the mating area.
The connector includes larger solder contacts to make soldering terminations easier as well as an optional connection to join pin-1 to the chassis ground. The housing is D-style for installation and the unit is designed to work especially well with the Neutrik EMC XLR cable connector.
