The Mini-DA42 serves for powering AES42 digital microphones (especially the SuperCMIT) and for converting their output signals to analog. It allows to operate digital microphones with devices which only offer analog or AES3 inputs.
Outputs (available through included Sub-D breakout cable):
Indicators: green LED for power; red LED for "unlocked" (turns off when a digital microphone is connected and the circuitry of the Mini-DA42 locks on to that signal).
Power: DC 12 - 18 V / 200 - 500 mA, available through included AC adapter PSD DC with HIROSE plug. Operation is also possible with other AC adapter models or batteries / rechargeable batteries.
Dynamic range of the Mini-DA42: 112 dB (A, RMS), >98dB (CCIR, q-peak)
Dynamic range of the SuperCMIT with the Mini-DA42: >107 dB (A, RMS), >96dB (CCIR, q-peak)
