RS Pro In-Line Sockets

From RS PRO, this cable mounted in-line Jack socket is designed to accommodate 3.5mm jack plugs. Being cable mounted, it is ideal for jack lead extensions for connections longer than a conventional jack lead can provide. With a nickel-plated contact, this cable mount stereo jack is not only cost-effective, but ensures a quality audio connection.

The mini jack connector socket has solder tabs for connecting to an appropriate cable. It features a metal screw on cable sleeve with an ergonomic grip design to ensure the connection is well protected. The jack socket also features an integrated strain relief that prevents damage to the connector caused by tugging or pulling on the attached cable.

Q: Are 1/8" mini jacks compatible with 1/4" standard jacks?

A: An adapter is needed to connect a 3.5 mm stereo jack socket to a 6.3 mm jack plug. Adapters are commonly available and often ensure no tangible loss of quality in the connection.

Q: What is the difference between 2 pole and 3 pole jack plugs?

A: For professional and typical audio applications, 3 pole jack plugs are often used as they are stereo and suitable for most purposes. 2 pole jack plugs are only suitable for mono applications, such as running individual sound feeds to specific speakers in an audio concert setup. They are often used to plug guitars into amps, so much so that they are often called guitar jacks.
