Matrix Switch XA1616L Overview

The Matrix Switch 16 x 16 Analog Audio Router features 16 inputs and 16 outputs and has a built-in control system for standalone operation. It utilizes D25 connectors for inputs and outputs at up to +24 dBm with a 120 dB S/N ratio. The D25 connectors are Tascam pin out compatible offering compatibility with several 3rd party breakout adapters to convert to male XLR, female XLR, or compression screw terminal strips. In addition to Tascam adapter break out cables, pre-assembled 25 wire cable with D connectors or ribbon cable can be used to install these systems.

The built-in webpage interface offers a convenient method for control and configuration using a PC or mobile device (Interactive Demo). In addition to the MASCOT protocol, there is support for some common 3rd party protocols. Additional control interfaces on this router are USB, RS-485, RS-232, AUX GPIO, and TCP/IP over the Ethernet interfaces. Remote Panels can also be used with this router for remote control up to a virtually unlimited distance over TCP/IP. The built-in button panel provides an additional interface for directly changing the matrix routing state.
