CANFORD PPM BOXES
Free-standing units incorporating Sifam Peak Programme Meters. Refer to Sifam PPM entry for detailed meter descriptions.
This range of boxed PPMs utilise mild steel enclosures to provide effective screening when used in proximity to colour monitors or VDUs. Care should still be exercised however when used in extremely close proximity to colour screens as some stray magnetic field may be present around the visible meter glass aperture.
Most versions incorporate overload LEDs to indicate the presence of signals which exceed a preset threshold (factory set at +8dBu). Stereo versions incorporate a switch to select the M (sum) level. “IND” setting will display an M level of 0dBu when 0dBu signals are present on both of the A and B inputs. “BBC” setting will display an M level of +3dBu when 0dBu signals are present on both the A and B inputs.
To allow the meters to be used in-line, input connectors have corresponding loop-out connectors wired in parallel. All types are illuminated using appropriate LED illumination kits.
Features of the standard types are as follows:
||One input connector, one loop-out connector, one 32AF meter, one overload LED.
