MASS and Multipin Connectors
The MASS connector series from Whirlwind provides
outstanding multipin connector reliability.
The rugged metal shell protects against moisture
and physical abuse.
The hermaphroditic design eliminates stocking
and logistical problems encountered with male/female
connector systems by reducing the number of required parts.
All MASS connectors include a heavy-duty dust
cap. Inlines also include strain relief.

connectors in audio history with this article
