Need your outdoor event or concert to go smoothly?
We know that anytime an event is outdoors it presents its own set of challenges. Broadcasting or outdoor productions demand highly reliable and durable solutions. The last thing you want is weather to adversely affect stage setup and get in the way of a packed live event.
Neutrik’s revolutionary new TOP (True Outdoor Protection) range makes sure that influences such as weather and temperature won’t impact your event by offering superior protection against moisture and the sun’s damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays.
Dario Winter, Product Manager at Neutrik emphasizes:
“It is now possible to find products on the market that provide protection only against moisture and precipitation. The sun and ultraviolet rays are, in our view, also an important factor because they too influence the material and product quality over time.”
The newly introduced Neutrik TOP series includes Neutrik’s leading line of products including Neutrik’s powerCON TRUE1, etherCON and XLR ranges — all are approved for use outdoors and are IP65 rated as well as UV resistant.
powerCON TRUE1 TOP
The well-established Neutrik powerCON TRUE1 range is widely used in many AV applications and sports the following features:
- Offers maximum true outdoor protection
- High impact UV-resistant materials
- IP65 IEC standard rating
- Fulfils NEMA 250 and UL50E/enclosure type 4 requirements
Neutrik’s powerCON TRUE1 TOP cable connectors feature the NAC3FX-W-TOP and NAC3MX-W-TOP connectors.
An upgraded version of Neutrik’s NAC3FX-W and NAC3MX-W connectors, these rugged power-in/power-out cable connectors feature an advanced ergonomic latch design, complete outdoor protection, UV-resistance and a reliable twist lock system. They are incredibly robust and offer superior cable retention with all Neutrik cables, along with a breaking capacity (CBC), meaning they can be connected or disconnected under load or live.
The powerCON TRUE1 TOP appliance connectors cover all field applications including:
- in and out connectors
- in/out combination

For the appliance range, the connectors need to be installed with the rubber sealing covers SCNAC-PX / SCNAC-FPX / SCNAC-MPX for true outdoor protection. If used indoors, the rubber seals are not required.

The SCNAC-PX / SCNAC-MPX / SCNAC-FPX rubber sealing covers can be combined with the powerCON TRUE1 TOP chassis appliance connectors to attain the UL50E / NEMA 250 enclosure type 4 rating. The rubber seals protect against dust and water and are IP65 certified.
