AES/EBU Splitter Panel, 2 channel 1-in 4-out, 1 RU

    The ETS SDS886 is a 2-Channel "(1) IN - (4) OUT" Digital Audio Splitter Panel. This rack-mounted product has been designed and manufactured expressly for the digital audio market.

Note: this device is intended only for balanced 110Ohm signals.

    The passive [and thus highly reliable] unit accommodates signal levels up to 10V. In addition, the versatile SDS886 maintains proper impedance so the remarkably innovative digital audio splitter need not be symmetrically applied.

    In many applications, the SDS886 completely eliminates the need for a distribution amplifier, not only significantly lowering costs, but reducing overall system complexity, as well.

    The SDS887 Distribution Hub balances the input signal, distributes it on the UTP cable, and converts the signal back at each display. NTSC, PAL, SECAM, or CCTV signals are converted to and from the UTP cable using the ETS SDS888 Video + Power and SDS889 Quad Video Balun.

    For signal stability, EtherCon connectors are recommended for these products.

    Intended for theatrical applications where those backstage can monitor on-stage activity, the SDS887 Video Distribution Hub supports color video over a total run length in excess of 330 meters (1100ft.) inclusive of all cable segments, on Category 5 or better cable. Black and white signals are typically supported up to 750 meters (2500ft.).

Audio Products - Adapters

  The ETS InstaSnake™ Series (SDS900 Series) is a compact, lightweight, versatile passive group of components allowing you to run audio signals over a single run of CAT5, 5E or 6 cables. With a roll of wire, these compact units are easily transported and/or stored solving dozens of live and/or recording sound problems.

  The InstaSnake™ is a passive unit, so you do not need power. The InstaSnake™ accepts 'mic' level, line level, analog or digital audio and supports phantom power when using shielded Cat5 or Cat6 cables.

  The basic units are a pair of passive units with bi-directional capability which can be input directly into analog or digital consoles. Designed to the highest professional standards the InstaSnake™ has a wide, flat frequency response, low THD and residual noise. The InstaSnake™ has been factory tested to 1900 feet over CAT5 using low Z dynamic microphones. Phantom power has been tested to 850 feet over shielded* cable. (*Phantom Power - Shielded Cat5 or 6 cables are required to pass phantom power.)
