The A-16D Pro distributes the A-Net output from any Pro16 source, along with DC power for Personal Mixers, to up to eight devices.
One A-Net input, eight powered A-Net outputs
A-Net Thru for system expansion (passive A-Net output)
Isolated DC power supplies for eight A-Net Personal Mixers via the Cat-5e cable
Standard IEC power connection
EtherCon connections throughout
Multiple A-Net Distributors can be used in a system
Each A-16D Pro accepts one Pro16 A-Net input signal and provides nine parallel outputs, using rugged EtherCon connectors and standard Cat-5e cables. The A-16D Pro provides isolated (floating ground) DC power through the eight A-Net Outs; the ninth output is an unpowered A-Net Thru connector, designed for distributing a copy of the A-Net signal to a second A-Net Distributor or remote location.
The 2U A-16D Pro eliminates the need to daisy chain Personal Mixers, and simplifies set-up by eliminating the need to connect a power supply to each mixer. Inside the A-16D Pro is Aviom's unique power sub-system design, which requires no external power supplies and which virtually eliminates the possibility of introducing hum or ground loops. The A-16D Pro can also be used as a central hub in an audio distribution system or snake, providing outputs to multiple locations or redundant outputs to a single location.
All connections on the A-16D Pro are on the front panel. A pass-through cable cutout is provided for flexible cable routing. As with all Pro16 Series products, Cat-5e cable runs can be up to 500ft/150m.
