Audio: Plug-on power12 September 2014
The PTX2040 plug-on transmitter with true 48V phantom power for microphones and a host of features to match the RMS2040 range is being showcased. Compact and designed in a trilobular shape, it has a low weight and a low profile, said the company. The PTX2040 can connect neatly to any dynamic or condenser microphone equipped with a standard balanced XLR and turn it into a wireless handheld microphone, making it ideal for use with a boom pole.
Another plug-on transmitter on show is the En2 PTX, which matches the CX2 twin-channel true diversity slot-in camera receiver, with up to 80MHz tuning range.
Audio is also showcasing its small RF DA and matching portable rack mount plates. The RF DA features 200MHz bandwidth and has a masthead DC supply built in. There are two sets of DC outputs via four hirose sockets on the RF DA.
Other products on show in the En2 range include the mTx mini transmitter, which Audio claims is the world’s slimmest unit and the DX2twin channel true diversity battery powered receiver. All units feature up to 40MHz switching bandwidth.
Also on display is the RK6, a six channel rack for the DX2040 diversity receivers. The RK6 has a comprehensive OLED display which shows RF levels, audio levels, transmitter battery indication, and scan. The RK2040 rack incorporating four true diversity receivers is also being demonstrated, offering comprehensive monitoring facilities via a built-in RS485 PC interface.
