The BARTEC VODEC VA300/MON-8 is a 1 Unit high 19-inch rack mount panel designed to allow the engineer to monitor program output from each of the VA300 amplifiers fitted to a Vodec VA300/ CAGE. The unit consists of a compact miniature loudspeaker, volume control and eight way selector (corresponding to eight amplifier slots in the VA300/CAGE). Connection to the VA300/MON-8 is by twisted pair ribbon (transports program output from each amplifier selected) which routes amplifier outputs from either:
- The BARTEC VODEC EOL03A or
- LTP series of amplifier loudspeaker termination
The complete assembly eliminates conventional hard-wiring by the employment of a “motherboard” style construction utilising a multi-sided printed circuit board. Plug in/out connections enable rapid installation and maintenance supporting hot-swap capability.
Implementation of VA300/MON-8, (note that EOL03A can be substituted by LTP2, and 4 BARTEC VODEC termination ports), connectivity in terms of the monitor panel is identical in each case.
