Hi, does 'OPEN' mean that this is unsuitable for diverting the sound from an internal speaker to an external one when the plug is inserted, and if so, where can I find a chassis mounted 3.5mm mono or stereo socket which will perform this task ?

Asked by: Smike
When you push a 2.5 mm mono plug into this socket the ground and signal connectors of that plug will mate with the respective ground and signal pins of the socket. The physical presence of the plug in the socket will force the 3rd leg to go from closed to open circuit. How you utilise and wire this into a circuit would be your own choice entirely, unfortunately Maplin are unable to offer advice on any form of circuit or project design.

Can I check, is the ground terminal the one closest to us in the picture?

Asked by: sapphire_nick
The terminals are obvious which are which, but the array in which you would solder to them would depend on the project you are working on.

I want to make my own euro module socket using a blank plate and this chasis socket. I will be connecting mono audio cable to the terminals to hide a 2.5mm mono extension cable. Is it obvious which terminals to solder the cable to?

Will this socket work in a home made instrument cabinet
Asked by: James Keeley
yes it should work fine although bear in mind your standard connector in these situations normally is a 6.35mm jack rather than a 2.5mm
