OVERVIEW

Io Audio Technologies’ Etherlatch™connectors feature a rugged, metal shell designed to fit around a standard RJ45 plug. It also protects the fragile RJ45 plug from being shattered by massive objects. The locking mechanism makes each connection as robust as possible and prevents accidental disconnection, while the strain relief extends the life of the network cable.

Etherlatch™ connectors are a perfect alternative for AVL networking applications where a more robust connection method is necessary. Running audio over Ethernet, networking digital audio, or lighting control will require Etherlatch™ style cable connectors. The IO-EC-X style is perfect for applications where superior strain relief is required.

The IO-EC-X style Etherlatch™ connector comes with 3 different waterproof rings to fit different sized category cable including 6.6, 7.9, and 9.2mm O.D.
