The -TPR1A modules are single-pair audio receiving modules compatible with RDL Format-A twisted pair products. These modules are designed to be mounted in wall boxes, cabinets or other enclosures that allow users to connect external equipment. The D- and DS- models mount in RDL WB-1U and WB-2U wall boxes, or in standard U.S. electrical boxes. The D-TPR1A features a white front-panel laminate with gray lettering that matches RDL Decora©-style remote controls. The DS-TPR1A is constructed of stainless steel to coordinate with RDL Decora©-style stainless steel remote controls in commercial/industrial installations. The AF-TPR1A is an APPFLEX series product that is compatible with various APPFLEX wall-mount, cabinet-mount and tabletop enclosures. The EM-TPR1A is a 45mm square module that fits the European Modular mounting frames and cover plates. European electrical boxes are not sufficiently deep to accommodate RJ45 jacks and plugs, therefore the EM- products connect to the twisted pair cable through a detachable terminal block.
APPLICATION: The -TPR1A modules feature an XLR output jack. A rear-panel switch set during installation determines which of the three FORMAT-A pairs is buffered to feed the module output. The audio signal received from the selected pair of the RJ45 INPUT jack feeds the XLR audio output jack. The output level from the XLR jack is set to either MIC or LINE level during installation using a rear-panel switch.
This module receives signal from only one cable pair, so the D-, DS-, and AF modules have a second RJ45 jack to connect cables to additional receiver modules. Installers simply connect the conductors of two cables in parallel on the EM- model terminal block. Two other single-pair receivers may be chained to the second RJ45 jack, or a single two-pair receiver may be connected. In addition to completing the reception of signals from all three FORMAT-A pairs, additional receivers may be connected to the same twisted pair feed. The bridging input circuits used in all FORMAT-A twisted pair receivers allow connection of up to 10 receiver outputs for each cable pair. The possibility of multiple receiver locations adds enormous flexibility in the design of audio routing systems using RDL FORMAT-A products. The power pair and all three audio pairs are fed through both rear-panel RJ45 jacks.
The -TPR1A may be powered directly from a 24 Vdc power supply using the rear-panel detachable terminal block.
