Gepco Introduces G37 Series 12-Channel DT12 Connectors

Connectors Offer New Level of Performance and Reliability

DES PLAINES, IL, January 16, 2006—Gepco International, an industry leader in the manufacturing and distribution of quality professional audio and video cables for over two decades, has introduced the G37 twelve-channel DT12 connectors, bringing a new level of performance and reliability to the industry-standard, twelve-channel DT12 format.

Gepco's G37 twelve-channel DT12 connectors feature a new hard anodized aluminum backshell that locks in place with two set-screws into a series of castellations. The set-screws and castellations prevent accidental loosening of the connector shell thereby extending the operating life.

For additional durability, the male connector shell is constructed from stainless steel to prevent damage and keyway wear. The crack-proof neoprene insulator has been improved, now featuring a bonded and scalloped design that prevents rotation. As with previous Gepco DT12 connectors, the G37 is completely weather-tight, allowing for use in remote and hostile environments.

The electrical contacts-the critical part of the audio path-have also been improved. Both the pins and sockets feature a new 3-micron, mil-spec gold plating for improved soldering and tarnish resistance. For strain relief, the G37 features an oversized nut and rubber gland seal with an optional kellem cord grip and heat shrink.

"We designed the G37 to be the most robust DT12 connector on the market," commented Gary Geppert, CEO and CTO of Gepco International. "The G37 is based on the requirements of mobile production companies, as well as feedback from our customer base. We eliminated the common sources of failure found in other designs-connectors going out of round, corrosion, backshell loosening, keyway wear and insert rotation. With this design, we can offer an even higher level of performance and reliability."

Gepco® International, with headquarters in Des Plaines, IL, and a branch location in Burbank, CA, has been a leading provider of studio and broadcast audio and video cables for more than 20 years. The company also specializes in manufacturing custom cable assemblies, panels, patch bay harnesses and breakout boxes.
