Outside diameter of Mini XLR TA4F?
« on: August 08, 2015, 11:23:15 AM »
I've been searching & can't seem to find what the outside diameter is of a mini XLR 4 pin female connector for my MBHO's. Can anyone do a quick measurement for me or point me to a spec sheet listing outside diameter? Thanks.

The portion the fits into the male receptacle of a REAN/Neutric TA5F as measured with calipers is 0.33". I think it would be the same for a TA4F. That's for the metal portion, if you need a measurement further back along the housing let me know it's 0.43".

Thank you, I'm trying to find a mic clip besides my Rycote that will hold the mini XLR portion so I can slide a windscreen over the cap & cartridge.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the MBHO actives the mini XLR attaches to the cartridge assy which the capsule threads onto, there isn't a lot of width in the cartridge assy to attach a clip too & if you do attach a mic clip to the capsule or cartridge assy there isn't enough room for a windscreen. The factory MBHO clips attach to the metal portion of the TA3F barrel hence the need for a measurement of the outside of the barrel assy.

Carl, and anyone else looking for dimensional drawings, they can be found on page 4 of http://www.rean-connectors.com/zoolu-website/media/download/5830/REAN+Product+Guide  which is a .pdf download, also note they don't list every dimension.

REAN also makes Mini-XLR 3 pin to XLR-Male or XLR-Female adapters (see page 6) which can save me some soldering. I wish they had a Mini-XLR3F also as that would save me even more time with the iron.

It's not REAN, though.
