IMP-8M8F is part of Ward-Beck's IMP-16 series of high density Rack Mount impedance converter panels. It allows 75 Ohm coaxial transmission of AES/EBU digital audio signals. Eight conversion transformers change a balanced 110 Ohm signal on XLR to an unbalanced 75 Ohm signal on a BNC type connector, and eight change an unbalanced 75 Ohm signal on a BNC type connector into a balanced 110 Ohm signal on an XLR type connector.
The IMP-8M8F is a conveniently packaged 1 Rack Unit high panel that features eight3 pin male, and eight 3 pin female XLR connectors on one side, and sixteen BNC coaxial type connectors on the opposite side. At an additional cost, customers have the option to have the 8 female XLR to BNC baluns configured to include a 10 dB loss pad (Order information for this option: IMP-8M8F/10).
