Product ManualManual

The 500DA-MADI reclocking distribution amplifier provides inexpensive distribution of your AES10 MADI audio signals. The 500DA-MADI will automatically equalize MADI signals on Belden 1694A coax up to 250m.

The 500DA-MADI supports the industry standard 64-channel payload at a sampling rate of 48kHz. Sampling rates up to 96kHz are also supported at various payload capacities as specified in AES10-2003.

The 500DA-MADI card edge LED indicators provide quick and accurate assessment of the incoming signal integrity.

The 500DA-MADI can be housed in the 3RU 500FR frame which has a 16 slot capacity.


  • AES10-2003 standard for MADI audio on 75Ω coax
  • Data reclocking provides jitter reduction
  • Automatic equalization
  • Equalizer and reclocker provide extended cable length compensation (> 250m)
  • Eight 75Ω coax outputs
  • VistaLINK® capable for remote monitoring, control and configuration capabilities via SNMP; using VistaLINK® PRO, CP-2116E or CP-2232E Control Panels. VistaLINK® is available when modules are used with the 3RU 500FR frame and a 500FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller module in slot 1 of the frame
