Reference Monitor Meters
The new Reference Monitor Meters are a range of freestanding and 1U
rack-mount precision meters offering accurate, high resolution metering of between 1 and 4 stereo audio sources.
Each stereo source is auto-switching between either analogue or digital AES/EBU format with sample rates up to 192kHz accepted.
The level of each stereo source is displayed on a pair of bright, multi-coloured bargraph meters, with a large choice of accurately modelled scales/responses to suit different applications and local preferences. Separate 5 LED phase meters indicate channel correlation or phase error conditions, and additional LEDs show digital input lock and audio level alarm status.
On the rear panel, open-collector alarm outputs provide hardware indication of audio under-level or silence, audio over-level, sustained phase errors above 90 degrees and digital source lock.
Status monitoring and unit ID functions, plus firmware updates to add extra functionality, are all accessible remotely via a RS232 connection in conjunction with Sonifex SCi software.
All Reference Monitor Meters operate from global mains voltages (85-264V AC, 47-63Hz) without adjustment.
Available Scales/Ballistics For All Meters
There are nine scales available with accurately modelled ballistics. Each stereo meter pair can have a different scale, set via a DIPswitch on the rear panel. A complete set of overlays are provided per stereo meter so that you can define the scale(s) that you need:
|1. Dual BBC PPM + standard VU|
|2. BBC PPM||IEC60268-10 11a|
|3. EBU PPM||IEC60268-10 11b|
|4. Nordic PPM||IEC60268-10 1|
|5. AES/EBU||IEC60268-18 digital PPM|
|6. DIN PPM||DIN45406|
|7. Standard VU||IEC60268-17|
|8. Extended VU||IEC60268-17|
