REDNET A16R

OVERVIEW

RedNet A16R expands Focusrite’s range of 1U Dante interfaces with network and power supply

redundancy, providing 16 channels of analogue input and output with high quality A-D and D-A

digital conversion at up to 119dB dynamic range, plus two channels of AES/EBU digital I/O, to and

from the Dante network.

Dual locking etherCON connectors are included to connect the network and to daisy-chain to additional

network devices. The unit is powered via Power over Ethernet (PoE) or via the rear-panel barrel connector

and included DC power supply.

RedNet A16R provides conversion at standard rates – 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 and 192kHz at

24-bit resolution – with pull-up/down capability. Electronically-balanced analogue audio I/O is

provided on DB25 connectors wired to AES59 specifications, and internal signals are balanced

throughout. Inputs and outputs may be configured for either +18dBu or +24dBu = 0dBFS signal levels.

Two additional channels of AES/EBU I/O with sample rate conversion are provided on XLR connectors.

Sample rates and operating levels are selected remotely from software on the host computer.

The clock source for the unit may be internal, or external via Word Clock or DARS (the latter via the XLR input).

RedNet A16R also outputs Word Clock.

RedNet A16R features power and network redundancy, with two separate universal (100–240V) PSUs including IEC

connectors with retaining clips, plus dual network interfaces on locking etherCON connectors, which can be set

remotely to Redundant or Switched (daisy-chain) mode.
