How many times have you snapped the top off a cat5 ethernet connector? Or how often have you crushed it in a high traffic area? Wouldn’t it be great if it looked like a protected xlr end?
Popular in the live production world, but lesser known in other av fields, an answer to this problem is already around. Welcome to the Neutrik “Ethercon” connector. We use these connectors anytime we want to make sure an ethernet cable stays plugged in. If it's used often and we want to make sure the end does not wear out. we use them too. You can add female ethercon connectors to stage boxes or wall plates, and even many times add the outside of an ethercon connector to an existing cable. Check out this link to the Neutrik page and let us know if we can help ruggedize your stage connections!
