The WM Block-19 transmitter is designed to resist damage when used in wet or dusty conditions and also offer a comprehensive feature set that makes it equally at home in film and television production and on stage. A solid machined aluminum housing with a corrosion resistant finish hosts dual battery compartments, a moisture sealed control panel with backlit LCD and enlarged membrane switches. Recessed seats for the O-rings in the battery caps and input jack allow the caps and mic connector to be tightened securely without excessive deformation of the O-rings.
The antenna is made of an extremely durable, multistrand alloy that will withstand heavy abuse. It is mounted with a compression sealed strain relief that prevents dust and moisture from entering the housing. As the first stage in the signal processing chain, the input preamp section includes very high quality, low noise components with a wide range of gain adjustment in 1 dB increments and a DSP-controlled input limiter. Dual color LEDs on the control panel accurately indicate audio input level for precise gain adjustment. Easily accessed screens on the LCD simplify setup and adjustments.
The DSP-based design works with all Digital Hybrid receivers, and is backward compatible for use with Lectrosonics 200 Series, 100 Series, IFB receivers and some other brands of analog wireless receivers.
