New patented dual DC socket

Cliff Electronics has introduced a new, patented DC socket.

The innovative design of the DC10L dual DC socket means that it can accept both 2.1mm and 2.5mm plugs allowing manufacturers to simplify their design and procurement processes, reducing inventory and lowering costs through  economies of scale.

Two models are available; the DC-10L dual socket, pin ring type, with switch contacts and chassis mounting solder tag connection and the DC-10LP dual socket, pin ring type, with switch contacts and 90°PCB mounting. The patented design of these new sockets ensures superior electrical contact for both 2.1 mm and 2.5 mm plugs and both are rated at 12V / 5A.

Other standard features include body material made from PBT for superior temperature characteristics, tin plated copper alloy contacts and RoHS compliance.

John Hall

The introduction of our new, patented dual DC socket makes life much simpler for the whole supply chain and end users alike. This new product continues to build on our long established reputation as a single source for engineering, design, moulding, assembly, cabling and associated services.”

Typical applications for the new Cliff Electronics DC10L dual DC socket include power connections to audio, medical, telecom and broadcast equipment and many types of portable devices. The DC10L is available direct from Cliff or from Distrelec, ELFA, Premier Farnell, CPC, Schukat and TME as well as Cliff Electronics Inc in the USA.
