The ETS InstaSnake™ Panel SDS908 is a 2-
rack high panel which has (8) etherCon RJ45 jacks on the front
and (32) XLR connectors on the back. These panels allow you to
run audio signals over UTP cables (Cat5e or better data cables).
The InstaSnake Panel is a passive unit - you do not need
external power. These panels were designed to accept "mic"
level or line level analog or digital audio. It supports phantom
power when using shielded UTP cables.
Designed to the highest professional standards, the
InstaSnake panel has a wide flat frequency response, low THD,
and, low residual noise. The InstaSnake panel has been factory
tested to 1900 feet over Cat5 using balanced line, low
impedance, dynamic microphones. Phantom power has been
tested to 850 feet over shielded UTP cables.
Use SDS901 or SDS902 units to convert signals to and from
the UTP cables.
