Adapting to the Light
Neutrik has expanded its line of adapters for the lighting industry with models designed specifically for three — pin AMX analog and five — pin DMX digital lighting applications. These new adapters interface with existing equipment without the need for additional cables or accessories. The new three — /five — pin adapters will come unwired to allow customers to wire them to their exact specifications. The three — pin AMX and five — pin DMX can run together in pro lighting applications. The entire line of Neutrik adapters are made using the die-cast shells of the “X” series connectors and the standard three — pin versions are available in either wired or non-wired versions.

Innova-Son is now shipping the Sensory Compact Live, a console designed for medium applications that is half the size of its larger siblings, the Essential, Grand, and Digital. The new console features 32 mic/line inputs and eight line-only inputs feeding 32 patchable input channels, each with a digitally controlled preamp, a low-cut filter, a gate/expander, a compressor/limiter, four bands of fully parametric equalization, and a four — digit label display. Twelve busses mix down to three masters, configurable in L/R-mono, LCR, or user-defined arrangements. Comprehensive monitoring resources provide PLF, AFL, and APL listening at any point in the signal path. The Sensory Compact Live has been designed to grow as needs or budgets increase. A stage-box option expands the input section by 64 physical inputs with digital transmission on lightweight coaxial cable. With Innova-Son's “Hyper-link” technology, users can merge the busses of two Sensory Compact Lives together, generating twice the inputs, busses, outputs, and processing power.

Duraline of Duty
Duraline has introduced a line of electrical multipin connector systems. These fully waterproof systems feature a unique reverse taper seal design, which isolates each contact and creates a watertight seal, allowing mated connectors to be submerged in up to 3' of water. Heavy-duty contacts ensure reliable connections, and for increased safety, the ground contact is designed to mate first and break last. Multipin connector systems are corrosion- and dust-proof and are not harmed by destructive elements such as moisture, corrosives, oils, gasoline, diesel, hydraulic fluid, or extreme heat or cold. Duraline's connectors are molded in solid Hypalon rubber with no voids or air gaps and permanently bonded to heavy-duty cable. The Multi-Pin Connector Systems are built to customer requirements and are available with up to 20 contacts, from 1A to 1,200A, and from 12V to 5,000V. Connectors may be custom built to fit individual customer needs.
