This listing is for DB-TPS3A Transmitter only. Use
description below as a general reference.
The D SERIES-TPS3A modules are three-pair audio sending modules compatible
with RDL Format-A twisted pair products. These modules are designed to be mounted in
wall boxes, cabinets or other enclosures that allow users to connect audio sources.
The -TPS3A models mount in RDL WB-1U and WB-2U wall boxes, or in standard U.S.
electrical boxes. The D-TPS3A features a white front-panel laminate with gray
lettering that matches RDL Decora©-style remote controls. The DB-TPS3A features a
black front-panel laminate. The DS-TPS3A is constructed of stainless steel to
coordinate with RDL Decora-style stainless steel remote controls in commercial/
APPLICATION: The D SERIES-TPS3A modules features
an XLR microphone input and two RCA phono jack inputs, one for the left channel
source and one for the right channel source. The unbalanced inputs are designed to
receive standard -10 dBV consumer level signals. The microphone input provides 24
Vdc IEC phantom voltage and accepts both dynamic and condenser microphone signals.
The input signals are amplified using studio-quality preamplifiers optimized for
normal operating levels. A rear-panel GAIN switch is provided to set the
amplification of the microphone preamplifier. This switch is normally set by the
installer for NORM (normal) gain. If consistently low mic levels are expected, this
switch may be set to the HIGH gain position. The pre-amplified microphone source is
routed to pair A. The buffered left and right line-level inputs are routed to output
cable pairs B and C.
These modules drive all three FORMAT-A cable pairs, so
they are not equipped to receive inputs from other sender modules. The D SERIES-
TPS3A may not be connected together with any other sending modules.
SERIES-TPS3A may be powered directly from a 24 Vdc power supply using the rear-panel
detachable terminal block. Local power connected to the module is also fed to all
connected remote modules. The -TPS3A may be remotely powered through the twisted
pair cable from any other module, signal distributor or RDL power inserter connected
to the same twisted pair cable. Module power is indicated by a front-panel LED.
RDL FORMAT-A features superior audio performance that rivals or exceeds shielded
wiring. Design simplicity, ease of installation, unsurpassed flexibility, automatic
fused power, exceptional hum rejection, low noise, and low distortion provide
designers and installers the optimum choice in economical twisted pair products.
