San Diego, Calif. SMK's ES series terminal consists of a multi-channel socket and plug for audio equipment.
This ES series design provides error-free connection of a plug and socket through a one-touch mating action, channel-specific color coding per the EIA standard, and a plug configuration designed to prevent reverse polarity, said the company. These speaker terminals may be used in home theater systems, DVD receivers, AV receivers and other audio equipment.
The sockets are available in single-, double- and triple-channel versions and are color-coded to mate with the socket in any configuration required. The cable easily connects to the plugs with a hinged contact system that accepts cables from 18 to 22 AWG for higher grade audio equipment. Electrical specifications include a contact resistance of 50 milliohms maximum at 100 mA maximum, an insulation resistance of 100 megohms minimum at 500 Vdc, and a withstanding voltage of 500 Vac for one minute.
The ES series terminal is priced at $0.80 each for the 2-position socket and $0.38 for the plug in a minimum quantity of 50. Delivery is six to eight weeks.
