APPLICATION INFORMATION
NOTES:
1. inputs of the iPlate Portable Audio Player Interface unit are
intended for unbalanced stereo headphone-level sources.
It is not intended for line-level sources such as the right
and left line-level outputs of a Cassette, CD or CD/DVD
player. Pro Co manufactures several TradeTools devices that will
correctly interface balanced or unbalanced line-level sources
with professional mixing consoles. Please consider a Pro Co DB1,
DB2, AV1A or IT1 as a solution for your interface depending upon
your specific application.
2. 3. L/R BALANCED OUTPUTS located on the 6 pole barrier strip on the back of the plate are connected to microphone input of
house P.A. mixer or recording console.
GND/LIFT switch settings assume the mixer is also the central
ground reference point for the system. For safety reasons all
equipment should be equipped with 3-wire AC power cords
and plugged into properly grounded receptacles.
Use of the GND/LIFT switch should minimize hum and buzz. If GND/LIFT switch seems non-functional, check wiring of cable
plugged into the LO-Z OUTPUT. A cable with a jumper between
pin 1 and the connector shell will defeat the GND/LIFT switch.
