AES 62

The new standard AES62 was developed to identify AES3 equipment and transmission circuitry for serial transmission of two digital audio channels over balanced, twisted-pair cable. The AES62 connector is based on the conventional 3-pin XLR connectors with additional keying. This keying is intended to prevent mating with conventional analog XLR connectors.

By extension the AES62 connector will also identify AES42 microphone connections.
