Titus Technological Laboratories 3-DRX

AES audio switcher
Titus Technological Laboratories
3-DRX: This AES digital audio device integrates both a two-input AES-3 switcher and a 24-bit stereo ADC into one package making a perfect emergency 3x1 automatic switcher, as well as easy EAS integration. The 3-DRX is a digital audio repeater and crosspoint switcher. It has three inputs and one output. The first two inputs are digital audio inputs; they can be AES-3 balanced, XLR or AES-3ID BNC. They can also be either terminating or bridging inputs allowing sampling of an existing serial digital audio data channel. The third input to the 3-DRX is a stereo analog audio input. The serial digital output conforms to both AES-3 and AES-3ID standards. The 3-DRX will automatically switch to the secondary digital input if the primary digital source fails. A tertiary stereo analog source will automatically be switched to if the two stereo digital streams fail or have a loss of audio on the digital data stream.

Wireworks Guardian Panel Mounts

Connector protection
Guardian Panel Mounts: A simple steel recessing ring, the Guardian Panel Mount offers protection to connectors on a custom panel by easily recessing them out of harms' way. The mounts increase connector safety when used as recessed low-voltage mounting ring or when installed in NEMA-style surface-mount or flush-mounted electrical boxes. As a recessed low-voltage ring, a Guardian Panel Mount can be easily mounted directly into a wall or anywhere else by using mounting screws, fasteners or toggle bolts. A custom connector panel is then attached to the recessed flange, providing protected connectivity. When used in conjunction with an electrical box, the mount can be ordered in the exact box size for surface-mount installations. Alternatively, the panel mount can be ordered with a flange one inch larger than the electrical box for flush-mounted applications, effectively enabling the wide flange to cover any seam between the box and the surrounding wall.
