RS Pro Panel Mount DC Power Socket

Brought to you under the trust of the RS Pro brand, this panel mount socket is designed to couple with push-fit DC power plugs. It is ideal for powering small appliances such as portable radios. The socket has a sleeve/shunt function that permits automatic switchover from AC to DC when the plug is inserted or withdrawn. The split centre pins are shaped to hold the mating plug firmly. There are many types of DC Connectors, along with this one they are usually referred to as a Barrel Connector or a Tip Connector.
