Table of Contents

AC “Z” Series Chassis Mount XLR Amphenol Connectors are designed for the audio user where durability, reliability and strength across a wide range of applications are important. All AC products are manufactured to the highest quality standards and will withstand the harshest environments. This range complies with IEC268-12 and AES 14-1992 standards. CSA File Number 68598.

Note: A ground tag is standard on all AC “Z” series connectors. Although the ground tag is intended for RFI shielding applications, Amphenol cannot guarantee its effectiveness in all cases.

The non-conductive Black polyester finish insulates the ground tag from the shell and should not be used in applications requiring ground contact to the shell.
