Analog Audio Distribution Amplifier

  • VistaLINK® enabled

The 500ADA-AUD Analog Audio distribution amplifier is a general purpose 1x4 amplifier for distributing analog audio signals.

The 500ADA-AUD can be operated with either differential or single ended inputs and offers a wide range of gain adjustment to handle a wide variety of input signals.

The 500ADA-AUD is housed in the 3RU 500FR exponent frame that will hold up to 16 modules.

  • Differential and single ended input (automatic single ended to differential conversion)
  • High impedance inputs
  • Low impedance outputs
  • Wide gain adjustment range
  • High common mode range and common mode rejection ratio
  • Very high SNR
  • Very low THD+N
  • Card Edge LED's
  • Module Status/Local Fault
  • Power Supply Status
