Wow! And I'm sure that would never be allowed in the USA. But I'm going to call my Neutrik guy and ask for a sample (just for giggles).

Note that it is no longer manufactured and not allowed to be used in domestic situations.

I acquired a couple of old amps made by Recording Studio Design (a forerunner of Studiomaster) which have these connectors on the rear.

I have been meaning to get a connector to see if they work but haven't got round to it yet.

Ivan wants one of them for his office display, but they are a bit heavy to post across the Atlantic.  If I have a non working one, I was going to strip it of its heavy components to make it suitable for posting.

But I want one just to freak out my crew.

I know a person with a fairly new powered wheel chair that has a xlr power connector.  I think it supplies a dc voltage, no idea how many volts or what the current draw is.  Itís a good reminder that our industry isnít the only one that uses xlr.

Ampeg used four pin XLRs on their B15 bass amps as long ago as mid 1960s but these were 50 watt amps.

Interestingly, decades ago Ampeg used a 4-pin XLR connector on their SVT bass rigs between the 300-watt head and the 8x10 speaker cabinets. And so did Vox on some of their passive column PA speakers.

And the video industry uses 4 pin XLR's for DC power on a lot of stuff.

My older neighbor (now RIP) had one of those battery powered mobility chairs and I ended up repairing it multiple times (one time for leaving it out in the rain). Integrity of connections is an issue and XLR seems nice if a little pricey. One time I repaired it was a matter of disconnecting and cleaning a connecter that accumulated too much dirt and dust. It was not a power connector but one of the sundry sensors. They are remarkably well engineered for operational safety, and even include troubleshooting codes in their processor brain.
