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.

Read about how these became the leading multipin
connectors in audio history with this article
published in the June 2003 issue of LiveSound! Intl.

MASS connectors are available in four sizes: W5 48 contacts;
up to 16 pair cable W6 84 contact; up to 28 pairs cable W3 122 contact;
up to 40 pair cable W4 176 contact; up to 58 pair cable

W3 and W4 pinnable MASS connectors are completely compatible
with existing Fixed-pin solder-type MASS connectors,and use the
same inline and panel-mount housings.These new crimp type
versions are designed for easy, positive insertion and removal
of pins and sockets, using a standard crimp tool and locator insert
available from Whirlwind or other suppliers.

CRIMP TOOL AND COMPONENTS
Pintool.gif - 10.85 K

M1R-TOOL KIT

Designed to streamline the assembly process, the standard crimp tool and locator easily 
attaches pins and sockets to the wires. Contacts load into the blocks from the rear.
Contacts can be removed by inserting the extraction tool into the wire hole and expanding
the spring fingers of the retention clip. The ends of the tool are color-coded
(red for insertion and white for extraction) for at-a-glance dentification.

MASS ANGLE ADAPTER KIT

The convenient MASS Angle Adapter Kit mounts in a panel and swings down to redirect the cables toward the floor.

This relieves the strain on the cable while increasing the working area around the front of the panel.

A built-in wrap-around shroud keeps connector wires hidden and protected.

Without connected cable, the Angle Adapter swings closed and locks in traditional straight-ahead position
.

W1, W2, MULTIPIN CONNECTORS
W1CF


Whirlwind offers a second compact line of multipin connectors. This 

smaller series is used on multipair cables from 6 to 20 pairs, and is 

based on the proven military 1/4 turn quick-disconnect MIL-26482 

series. This style comes in two sizes: W1 (which has 39 solder type 

contacts and is used for cables with 12 pairs or fewer), and W2 (which 

has 61 solder type contacts and is used on 16 and 20 pair cables). Each 

size has a male connector and a female connector. The male pins are fixed 

in a shell that has a locking ring attached. The female socket contacts 

are mounted in a receptacle shell that mates with and accepts the 

locking ring of the male connector.
