Available with XLR or BNC connectors
This module can optionally be supplied with different front panels, the electrical conversion remains the same. The XLR versions are available for balanced lines and BNC for unbalanced cabling as well as a 4HP wide front panel. (When using both the transmit and receive functions, a second front panel is used in both versions, which is connected to the circuit board via a ribbon cable.
Support of S/P-DIF signals
Since the professional AES/EBU signal and the consumer format S/PDIF differ only in the electrical level, the XETR cards offer the possibility to select the type of input or output in the settings. In this way, both formats can be received and transmitted.
Adjustable digital gain in inputs and outputs
For input signals with known understeering, the level can be digitally amplified by 20 dB. A reduction is also possible. A switchable limiter protects against overload.
Sampling rate converters in all inputs and outputs
The sample rate converters in the inputs can be switched on manually or operated in auto mode; the board automatically detects whether the incoming frequency corresponds to the NEXUS system clock. A sampling rate of 44.1/48 kHz; 88.2/96 kHz or 176.4/192 kHz can be set for each output. In addition, the outputs can also be synchronized to the paired input of the same module.
Transparent transmission of additional data in the AES3 data stream
The NEXUS network is able to transparently transmit an AES3 data stream including the additional data. If no data is available in transparent mode, NEXUS internal data is output. If additional data is transmitted on only one channel, it is transmitted to the other channel.
