SquarePlug SP500 is an updated version of the original 1/4” ‘pancake-type’ connector introduced by Switchcraft some 50 years ago under the designation 228.
The Switchcraft 228 was redesigned in every detail and the SP400 / SP500 was created.
SP400 [SP500] is not only thinner than its counterparts, soldered and solderless alike, but is also narrower and shorter, which makes it the only soldered connector on the market to work with many switchers/controllers with close jack spacing.
- Ultra–low–profile connector [measures only 8.3mm / 0.326" x 17mm / 0.67" x 28mm / 1.10". 20% smaller in volume than the Switchcraft 228/229]
- All–metal plug designed to fit smaller diameter cables for optimum strain relief and improved shielding
- 2 solder tabs for quick and easy soldering/desoldering
- Insulation sheet to prevent hot and ground signals from shorting
