16x16 AES3 I/O With Independent Level Control


The RedNet D16R MkII is a 16-channel bi-directional AES3 interface for Dante® networks. The 1U rackmount device features individual input and output channel level controls, allowing for precise calibration and control of all input and output levels using RedNet Control. RedNet D16R MkII features power supply and Ethernet redundancy with auto switchover in case of failure.


Various connection options make RedNet D16R MkII a flexible addition to any Audio-over-IP system. A pair of DB25 multipin connectors each connect eight channels of AES3 I/O into and out of the interface, while XLR and RCA ports enable two-channel AES3 and S/PDIF connections, respectively, to be made.


Sample rate conversion on every input enables external equipment to operate at different sample rates, and DARS signals are accepted on the XLR connector. Word Clock I/O on BNC connectors allows synchronisation to house clock, or syncing external equipment to the Dante network.

Front Panel Indicators


Primary PSU (A)

Green LED. Illuminates when an AC input is applied and all DC outputs are present

Secondary PSU (B)

Green LED. Illuminates when an AC input is applied and all DC outputs are present

Secondary Network

Green LED. Indicates that a network connection is present on secondary port when in redundant mode. Not used in switched mode

Network Locked

Green LED. When unit is following network grand master, shows valid network lock. When unit is network master, shows lock to indicated clock source. Flashing indicates external clock is selected but not connected

Sample Rate

Orange LED for each: 44.1kHz, 48kHz, x2, x4

Pull Up/Down

Orange LED. Indicates unit is set to operate on a Dante pull up/down domain

Signal Indicators

16 Green LEDs, 8 input/8 output indicators. Illuminate @ -126dBFS

Clock Source

Orange LED for each: Internal, Word Clock, DARS, Input 1–2 and Input 9–10

Primary Network

Green LED. Indicates that a network connection is present on primary port when in redundant mode. When in switched mode, a valid network connection at either primary or secondary network port will cause this LED to illuminate

Network Modes


Redundant

Allows unit to connect to two independent networks

Switched

Connects both ports to integrated network switch allowing daisy-chaining of devices
