Radial Engineering R800 8023 overview

  • 1Description

The Radial Engineering Catapult TX4M is a four-channel snake that is designed to route four channels of mic-level signal across long distances using shielded Cat5/Cat6 cable, doing so with little to no signal degradation. As such, it’s useful in live-sound reinforcement applications, as it allows live sound stage techs to use relatively affordable cable to secure quality audio connections around large stages and venues. It’s also suitable for system contractors who can now utilize pre-wired networks to move audio throughout disparate rooms.

The Catapult TX4M gives you four XLR input jacks, as well as four XLR transformer-balanced through-outputs optimized for mic-level signal. You can run phantom power over the snake as long as you use a shielded Cat5 cable. You’ll also note the two RJ45-type etherCON connections. One is an output, for use with the RX4M on the receiving end. The other is a throughput, and can be implementing in routing signal to additional Catapults. In total, you'll have the ability to split and route mic-level signal to three different locations.

A ground-lift switch helps eliminate any noise issues on the Cat5 or Cat6 line, while a steel handle provides easy transport, and four bumpers protect the Ethernet jacks and ground-lift switch from wear and tear.
