The Switchcraft EZ Norm audio jackfield offers a simplified and cost saving method for setting up and changing the normalling of a 48 channel Bantam/TT patchbay. Installation time and installed cost are significantly reduced as all normalling connections are pre-made within the jack modules. The ‘normal’ configuration of each channel is changed simply with a standard screwdriver by rotating a cam switch located between the upper and lower connector rows.
An audible ‘click’ can be heard as the cam rotates from fully normalled, to un-normalled, to half-normalled. Cams are concealed by an easily removable opaque strip which may also be used as a centre designation strip.
Rear termination is by solder tag and a lacing bar is fitted as standard.
The bantam jacks have a nickel-plated brass body with gold switch-contacts on silver-plated copper-alloy spring blades, guaranteed for 30,000 mating cycles.
Optional accessories: Bantam patch cords; 110 ohm, low capacitance flexible cable fitted with moulded nickel-plated bantam jacks. Suitable for AES and analogue audio. See SWITCHCRAFT BANTAM PATCHCORDS Digital and analogue.
Many other rear termination systems are available including wire-wrap terminals, Switchcraft PPT IDC terminals, pre-wired to various EDAC connectors or to cable tails with a variety of connector terminations. Please contact Sales for details.
