I successfully tested XLR connectors with a 2 phase grid system voltage of 28V and 14V and one neutral return. Hotplugging is okay for small loads, the neutral connects first before any of the phase contacts get in touch, so no risk of unwanted floating potentials. One problem I encountered is the cable diameter for the XLR connectors: 3x1.5mm² H07 is the maximum which fits into the cable relief of the XLR connectors. For longer cables and depending on the load, the losses are too high for just 3x1.5² - that's a major downside of the otherwise versatile 3pin XLR connectors.
