The RTS PS-20 is a Two-Wire Intercom power supply. The PS-20 features two- and four-channel operation, RTS monitoring, two-channel program input, audio linking, and three-mode operation: RTS 2-channel, RTS 4-channel and Clear-Com mode. It also has double the power output of the PS-31 per channel, which will increase the number of user stations and beltpacks which can be connected substantially.
The PS-20 features two channels of communication where both channels are "wet", meaning there is power on each channel (RTS two-channel mode). In RTS four-channel mode, the audio signals and DC exist on the same wire. The PS-20 can also be switched into Clear-Com mode. The RTS PS-20 has a 3-pin XLR (male) connector on the front of the system, where a RTS user station can connect and monitor activity on either or both channels.
A single RTS PS-20 power supply has 1.8 ampere per channel which means the user can power up more stations. If additional user stations or beltpacks are needed, two PS-20's can be joined together to double the power capability. A pair of standard stereo plug connectors are available on the back of the power supply to connect two PS-20's through audio linking as well. The PGM IN (3-pin XLR female Program Input) connector can be used to send audio to both CH 1 and/or CH 2.
