    The Studio-Tech Model 46A is designed to interface 2-wire full-duplex party-line (PL) intercom circuits with 4-wire audio circuits associated with matrix intercom systems. Other specialized audio system interfacing applications can also be supported. The Model 46A provides two independent full-featured 2-channel interfaces. Each interface contains two hybrid circuits which include automatic nulling capability.

    The analog circuitry, under software control, provides excellent audio quality and high return-loss. The interfaces are compatible with powered and unpowered 2-wire party-line circuits. They are capable of supplying DC power, allowing direct operation of devices such as user beltpacks. Configuration settings allow the 2-wire and 4-wire interface circuitry to be compatible with a range of nominal signal levels. Audio level meters provide user confirmation of system performance during setup and operation.

    Applications for the Model 46A include television sports and special event broadcasting, theme park and theater installations, corporate events, and industrial testing environments. Standard audio connectors are used for all input and output signals. The Model 46A mounts in one space of a standard 19-inch rack enclosure and requires 100-240 V, 50/60 Hz for operation.
