Lectrosonics Upgrades 400 Series Transmitter
The Lectrosonics MM400A transmitter has been updated as the MM400B to include a waterproof, programmable switch, a steel cable battery door retainer and an IFB compatibility emulation mode. The MM400B transmitter, like its predecessor, features 100mW RF power with a circular isolator at the output for reduced IM distortion. The case for the transmitter is highly water-resistant and plated with a special corrosion-resistant surface.
The new switch assembly is user-friendly, yet remains sealed to water and other elements by employing a magnetic reed system. As delivered, the switch turns the unit's power on and off. However, it can be programmed to operate as a mute switch, therefore maintaining the carrier signal while simply muting the audio. This allows for rapid muting and un-muting of the audio program in applications requiring this feature.
The MM400B uses Digital Hybrid Wireless technology that allows it to transmit audio without an analog compandor when used in native 400 series mode. In addition, the transmitter can be programmed to emulate several other analog transmitters and can also emulate IFB transmitters for direct transmission to Lectrosonics belt-pack IFB receiver units.
