AES62-2011 (w2022): AES standard for audio connectors - Modified XLR-3 Connector for Digital Audio
Printing Date: 2017-04-24
Publication History: Pub. 2011, reaffirmed 2017, withdrawn 2022
Abstract: This standard covers new connector types in order to identify AES3 equipment, signals and transmission circuits (tie lines). By extension, the same connectors will also identify AES42 microphone connections. The new "digital" connectors are based on the conventional analogue three pole XLR-type connectors with the difference of additional keying. The keying is realized in a manner as to prevent mating with conventional XLR-type connectors. Furthermore new "compatible" connectors that mate with both "digital" and conventional types are being specified.
