The AEW-T1000a wireless UniPak body-pack transmitter has both low and high impedance inputs plus a 5V DC bias connection allowing it to be used with both condenser and dynamic microphones. The locking 4-pin HRS-type audio input connector is recessed to protect the connection from damage. A dual-color power/mute indicator LED provides visual indication of transmitter status. The transmitter operates using two standard AA batteries (sold seperately) and features high- and low-level RF output settings. The low-level setting allows two additional hours of battery life while retaining a strong RF signal link. Soft-touch controls provide convenient access to a variety of functions including: RF power, audio input level, power/mute locks and frequency selection. Each transmitter's backlit LCD display presents a great deal of setup and operating information clearly and conveniently, including battery fuel remaining, mute, and operating frequency. A flashing "Lo-Batt" alert visually signals the battery life is almost depleted. Programmable power/mute locks limit the functioning of transmitter's power/mute button as desired for particular users and applications. Four namable user presets allow for storage and recall of commonly used settings. To match the audio input level to the transmitter, a ten-position audio input gain setting selected through the function menu is provided.
The body-pack features a safety cover to protect the soft-touch controls from being accidently activated and a recessed input connector to increase the life of the microphone cable. Inputs are available on the UniPak for low impedance microphone and high impedance musical instrument or line input. Constructed of metal, the body-pack transmitter features a field replaceable antenna and captive locking battery cover door. A short rigid helical antenna, a flexible wire antenna, and a soft protective pouch are included with the transmitter.
