    RU-BNFP - Overview

    The RU-BNF modules are Dante audio network interface products compatible with RDL Format-A twisted pair products. These modules are designed to be mounted in equipment racks, closets, conference tables and on shelves or backboards in commercial/industrial installations.

    APPLICATION: The RU-BNF is an RDL Format-A sender/receiver that connects to a Dante-enabled network, providing all the features of an RDL RU-FN Format A to Network Interface and an RU-NFD Network to Format-A Interface/Distributor.

    Network to Format-A Interface/Distributor Section

    The RU-BNF converts three Dante audio channels to RDL Format-A. Each network channel corresponds to Pair A, B or C of the Format-A outputs. The unit converts a fourth Dante audio channel to a balanced line-level AUX output.

    One front-panel green signal LED corresponds to each of the four Dante input channels. Received audio level is indicated on the variable-intensity LED indicator, facilitating setup when a networked computer is not connected at the module’s location.

    The Format-A output is distributed to three separate rear-panel RJ45 jacks. Each Format-A output jack provides up to 200 mA of power to connected Format-A receivers. Multiple receivers may be daisy chained from one output jack, or may be connected by home run to each of the three outputs. Higher current Format-A receivers, such as RDL D-PSP1A powered Decora-style speakers, are to be individually connected to a separate output jack.

    The RU-BNF output jacks support the entire range of Format-A receivers, making each output pair available for end-user connection on various wall plates, or feeding other equipment using rack-mounted, shelf-mounted or utility Format-A receivers. The wide array of Format-A receivers provide compatibility with commercial audio equipment operating at standard professional levels. High resolution digital audio converters coupled with RDL’s renowned analog filters provide superior fidelity with a very low noise floor. Each Format-A receiver may be connected near the RU-NFD or up to several thousand feet distant.

    Format-A to Network Interface Section

    The RU-BNF converts the three Format-A audio pairs to Dante networked digital audio channels. Each network channel corresponds to Pair A, B or C of the Format-A input. The unit converts a fourth input, balanced or unbalanced line-level AUX, to Dante.

    One front-panel green signal LED corresponds to each of the three Format-A input channels. Received audio level is indicated on the variable-intensity LED indicator, facilitating setup when a networked computer is not connected at the module’s location. A Dual-LED VU meter facilitates adjustment of the front-panel AUX input gain control. The AUX input supports the complete range of normal unbalanced and balanced line-level sources.
