Professional powered mixers
PPM Series: Each model in the PPM Series features custom-designed Mackie Class-D Fast Recovery Amplifiers, which are cooler running and more efficient than their predecessors. Mixing tools include premium Mackie preamps, two built-in DI boxes, three-band active EQ, and in-line compressors. The new onboard 32-bit RMFX+ effects processor boasts a useable set of Mackie reverbs, choruses and multi-tap delays. The PPM608 eight-channel, 1000W powered mixer includes eight premium Mackie mic preamps, 48V phantom power and six TRS inserts. The PPM1008 eight-channel powered mixer provides 1600W of power, eight premium Mackie mix preamps, 48V phantom power and six TRS inserts. The PPM1012 12-channel powered desktop mixer features eight mic/line mono inputs and two stereo line inputs — all the features of a Mackie mic/line mixer, with the added benefit of powerful built-in amplifiers.
CKM Series: The CKM Series on-off-on switch models with tubular keys feature a push-and-lock mechanism that indicates when the switch position has been changed. They also feature a vertically rotating switching mechanism and self-cleaning sliding contacts to ensure a long operating life, smooth operation and guaranteed circuit contact. Incorporating an antistatic insulating material, the Series is able to withstand 15kV of electrostatic discharge. Their strength rating is 1,500V between contacts and case for a one minute minimum. In addition, the terminals are epoxy sealed to prevent the entry of flux and other contaminants. A 16mm double flatted bushing ensures the CKM Series fits securely in panel mounts. These switches are available in single-pole configuration and two-position and three-position models. The two-position models feature a 90 degree angle of throw and the three-position models a 45 degree angle of throw. Keys are supplied with randomly assigned key numbers and one key is provided with each switch.
AM-04: The AM-04 works anywhere numerous audio signals must be monitored, even those that are part of a video broadcast. It accepts four analog audio signals, has two pairs of AES digital audio outputs with an additional analog audio signal, and an SDI video embedded audio signal. The AM-04's control system with single rotary controls and switches has no menus to navigate. It works in three ways: individual left and right high frequency, with common low frequencies, has a headphone output, and sports two pairs of tri-color peak VU meters, each with 26 LEDs, and a phase control between each pair of VU meter bars.
PCI Express digital I/O interface adapter
DIO-32.PCIe: The DIO-32.PCIe is a PCI Express digital I/O interface adapter. It provides 16 optically isolated inputs and 16 reed relay outputs, which can be utilized for PC-based control and automation of equipment including sensors, switches, A/V studio automation, security control systems, and industrial automation systems. Sealevel PCI Express serial boards are designed for computers with X1 PCI Express slots. Software for standard PCI boards will also work with PCI Express boards, simplifying your transition to this next-generation PCI bus.
