Frequently asked questions

How to clean XLR Connectors safely and correctly?

In general, the tolerance to dirt or contamination for XLR Connectors is relatively low; however, regular inspections and cleaning like for any other electrics is essential. We are recommending using our tested RS PRO electrical contact cleaning equipment 917-5914 or 554-298.

Using swabs or cloths might decrease contact performance and lifespan of the Connector; therefore, it is vital to use checked and approved cleaning solutions.

A Male Connector has solid pins (usually between 3-pin to 7-pins) whereas Female Connector has central conductor with a-holes.
