The ADIT175P AES3 and MADI Isolating Digital Audio Patch Panel is a transformer based solution that provides reduction and elimination of hum and noise that can interfere with Serial Digital Audio transmission caused by differences in ground potential, especially those above 20 volts, or induced currents in long cable runs.
This common mode noise results in the degradation of the absolute bit timing of high speed digital signals leading to bit errors. These bit errors will at first reduce the quality of the audio and data content within the transmission signal but since digital signals do not degrade gracefully but suffer from a cliff effect, the digital signal can be lost altogether.
Also, the Isolating Digital Audio Patch Panel provides crucial protection to audio circuits where ground or earth potential differences exist between equipment. These potential differences often results in permanent and expensive damage. The unit will provide 1kV of isolation between the ground connections.
The ADIT175P Isolating Digital Audio Patch Panel comes in a compact 19″ 1RU rack mount unit.
