RDL Introduces Format-A Decora® Dual Mic Preamp with Automatic Gain
Release date: 2015-10-29
RDL is pleased to introduce the D SERIES-TPSM2A Dual Microphone Preamplifier Format-A Sender.
The D SERIES-TPSM2A is the latest addition to the expanding group of Format-A products. It provides two XLR microphone inputs with P48
phantom power in a single-gang Decora package. The -TPSM2A connects to other Format-A modules using standard CATx cable or to a Dante™
audio network using RDL’s Format-A / Dante interface products.
One of the features that sets the -TPSM2A apart from other in-wall microphone preamplifiers is the automatic gain feature. When the rear-panel
GAIN switch is set by the installer for AUTO (automatic) gain, the module automatically sets the gain to 60 dB for dynamic microphones or 40
dB for condenser microphones. If consistently low mic levels are expected, this switch may be set to the HIGH gain position. If the module is
used only with condenser microphones, the switch may be set to LOW gain.
RDL’s Format-A system utilizes 3 pairs of a standard CATx cable for audio and one pair for distributing 24 Vdc power. These modules drive only
two cable pairs, therefore they accept a signal and power from another mic-level or line-level Format-A sender.
Like most of RDL’s Decora products the front-panel graphic labels may be customized to meet customer needs. A number of mounting options
are available for the -TPSM2A including wall mounts, surface mounts, desktop chassis, Decora cover plates, rack mounts and international wall
Models are available in white, stainless steel or black.
