Japanese audio accessories brand Furutech has extended its range of high-performance power connectors with the addition of three new IEC models, which are positioned just under the range topping FI-50.

The new FI-46 NCF (gold), FI-48 NCF (silver) and FI-48 NCF (rhodium) IEC power connectors have pure copper conductors, and are (as their names suggest) plated with gold, silver or Rhodium.

Nano Crystal² Formula

All three models have a nylon/fiberglass body with Nano Crystal² Formula (NCF). Furutech says that NCF “features a special crystalline material that has two ‘active’ properties. First, it generates negative ions that eliminate static. Second, it converts thermal energy into far infrared”. Furutech combines this material with nano-sized ceramic particles and carbon powder.

Floating Field Damper System

Furutech’s patented Floating Field Damper System, solves, say Furutech, “the biggest problem you never realized you had by star-grounding the metal parts in which floating magnetic fields are induced by current flow. All the various metal parts of the connector are tied together in such a way as to shunt whatever electrical potentials are generated to ground”.

Each of the three conductors features an aluminium or stainless steel housing incorporating damping and insulation materials. A high quality metal cable clamp improves grip and reduces mechanically and electrically induced distortion. And, in common with all Furutech products, all metal parts are ‘alpha’- treated: a proprietary process involving cryogenic freezing and ring demagnetization.

Pricing & Availability

Furutech’s new IEC power connectors are available now priced as followed (including VAT):

FI-46 NCF (gold) £155
