Take Your Signal Wherever You Need It With The Rane RAD16z Remote Audio Device

A RAD16z is an alternative to standard switchboxes for impractical areas such as in stage floor pockets or above ceilings. Its form factor is a rugged metal box with flexible surface mounting options. The RAD16z is plenum-rated UL 2043. It contains two balanced Mic/Line/Line-Plus inputs and two balanced line outputs on Euroblock connectors.

Line-Plus allows a stereo unbalanced source to connect to a single balanced input and be mono'ed. Inputs are individually software switchable to Mic, Line or Line-Plus. 24V phantom power can be enabled in software for a condenser mic on either input. LEDs indicate input mode, Input and Output level, as well as RAD connectivity to the HAL.

Two Logic Inputs and Outputs interface other devices to HAL with toggles or commands, like push-to-talk or mute switches, projectors, lights, alarms, etc. Logic In connects a device contact switch between pin 1 or 2 to ground. Logic Out is 5 V high or 0 V low. Galvanic isolation prevents current flow between the RAD and host technical grounds from interfering with audio. The RAD16z is only available in black. Mountable to any flat surface.
