Accessories

ControlSpace® EP22-D 2In/2Out Dante™ Endpoint

The ControlSpace EP22-D Dante endpoint is a 2in/2out, convenient and cost-effective way to add mic/line audio input and output channels to a Dante-based networked audio system. The small form factor of the EP22-D and PoE power capability make it easy to put Dante connectivity wherever it’s needed—near the audio source or sink—thereby eliminating costly and interference-prone analog wiring. Setup and control, including like mic/line input gain, output gain and phantom power, as well as Dante audio routing are all integrated in ControlSpace Designer.

ControlSpace® EP40-D 4 Input Dante™ Endpoint

The ControlSpace EP40-D 4 input Dante endpoint is the ideal interface for adding mic/line inputs to a Dante system. The small form factor of the EP40-D allows it to be mounted almost anywhere, putting it close to audio sources and minimizing interference-prone analog wiring. The EP40-D features four balanced mic/line inputs, each with software selectable +48V phantom power and 8 gain levels. Front panel indicators show each channel’s gain and phantom power status for easy troubleshooting. The EP40-D has two network connections to allow Dante daisy chaining. Dante daisy-chaining further simplifies system infrastructure wiring by allowing multiple EP40-Ds to use a single CAT-5 home run connection to a network switch. Power can also be daisy chained. The EP40-D is powered by either an external +24VDC supply or any PoE network switch. Setup and control, including like mic/line input gain and phantom power, as well as Dante audio routing are all integrated in ControlSpace Designer.

ControlSpace® WP22B-D Dante™ Wall Plate

The ControlSpace WP22B-D Dante audio Interface is a cost effective multi-I/O wall box. The WP22B-D features two balanced mic/line XLR inputs and two balanced XLR line outputs. All inputs and outputs can be used simultaneously, and all audio channels are available separately. The WP22B-D is designed to fit into most dual gang US junction boxes and is PoE enabled, so all connectivity (power and data) is provided by a single CAT-5 cable. The size of the WP22B-D and I/O density make it easy to put Dante connectivity wherever it’s needed—near the audio source or sink—thereby eliminating costly and interference-prone analog wiring. Setup and control, including like mic/line input gain and phantom power, as well as Dante audio routing are all integrated in ControlSpace Designer.

ControlSpace® WP22BU-D Dante™ Wall Plate

The ControlSpace WP22BU-D Dante wall plate is a cost effective multi-I/O wall box. The WP22BU-D features a balanced mic/line XLR input and a balanced XLR line output. Two RCA line-level inputs and a 3.5mm TRS line-level input complete the available inputs. A 3.5mm TRS line-level output is also included. The WP22BU-D is designed to fit into most dual gang US junction boxes and is PoE enabled, so all connectivity (power and data) is provided by a single CAT-5 cable. The size of the WP22BU-D and I/O density make it easy to put Dante connectivity wherever it’s needed—near the audio source or sink—thereby eliminating costly and interference-prone analog wiring. Setup and control, including like mic/line input gain, balanced/unbalanced source selection, and phantom power, as well as Dante audio routing are all integrated in ControlSpace Designer.
