In 1982 ESE introduced our first Distribution Amplifier (DA), the ES-207. Since then, we have sold nearly
10,000 of those simple 1 x 4 Video DAs and added over 40 other products to the DA line. That same
year ESE demonstrated our further commitment to the Broadcast Industry when we introduced the
ES-206 (Time and Date Video Inserter) and ES-214 (Digital VU Indicator). These two products marked
the beginning of our Video Product Line and our Audio Product Line, respectively. Thirty years later,
updated versions of these early units continue to be produced - distinguished examples of our
products’ longevity in keeping with ESE’s 40+ years of excellence.

DISTRIBUTION AMPLIFIERS
The ES-209A is a 1 x 12 Video Distribution Amplifier combined with a 1 x 12 Dual Audio
Distribution Amplifier. The ES-224 is very similar except that it is a 1 x 24 version. They are
primarily designed to meet the needs of tape duplication systems as well as installations
that require Audio and/or Video Distribution. Front panel-mounted controls are provided
to adjust Video (EQ & Gain) and Audio (Left & Right Gain) output signals.
Features:
• Left & Right Channel Audio Gain Controls
• Professional Audio & Video Quality
• Loop-thru Audio & Video Inputs
• Accepts Balanced or Un-Balanced Audio
• Transformerless Audio DA
• 1 x 12/24 Video DA
• 1 x 12/24 Stereo DA
• Video EQ & Gain Controls
• Internal Linearity Control
• Rack Mount Enclosure
The video section of the ES-209A and ES-224 may be used for signal distribution and for signal conditioning.
They are capable of delivering the very highest professional video quality. The Equalization Control (EQ) may
be used to boost chroma in recording if desired. The Gain Control provides an output from .5 Vpp to 1.5 Vpp
(with 1 Vpp input).
The audio portion of the unit is designed to
create 12/24 identical copies of the stereo
input drive signals. Response, distortion
and noise specifications make the stereo
performance of the DA ideal for tape
duplication or signal distribution, The
audio DA input is balanced or unbalanced (hi-impedance), while the outputs are medium, and will drive either 600Ω or hi-impedance inputs.

while the ES-218* has a single Gain control that adjusts all four outputs simultaneously. The transformerless
design accepts balanced or unbalanced audio and provides four exact copies. If unbalanced outputs are
desired, up to eight separate and isolated feeds can be made. An input attenuator is also provided which
is internally adjustable and may be used when using lower input levels. These rugged units are housed in
orange-painted, die-cast aluminum boxes.
The ES-245* is a quad 6-output Audio DA with 24 independently adjustable (via front-mounted Gain controls)
outputs, while the ES-246 has four Gain controls (one per input channel). The unit is a transformerless design
and each of the four channels accepts a balanced or unbalanced audio signal that provides six exact
copies. If unbalanced outputs are desired, up to twelve separate and isolated feeds can be made per
channel. An input termination switch (between 600Ω and 100KΩ) is also provided on the ES-246.

TIME CODE
ISOLATION & DISTRIBUTION AMPLIFIERS
Since the early ’80s, ESE’s Audio and Video Distribution Amplifiers have been recognized for their quality
and durability. Using very similar technology, ESE presents a line of Distribution Amplifiers (DAs) capable of
isolating and distributing most any type of Time Code. The basic idea for each model is the same... provide
the ability to distribute time code and compensate for lengthy cable runs while isolating each unit in the
Master Clock System.
Described below are units capable of handling any of the IRIG time codes, ESE Time Code or ASCII time
code. If you’re in need of a DA not mentioned here refer to our DISTRIBUTION AMPLIFIERS Brochure available
on our website or contact the ESE Factory.
ES-210
Quad 1x6 1/5/10 MHz DA
ES-242
Quad 1x6 IRIG(AM) DA
ES-243
Quad 1x6 ESE DA (or IRIG-’TTL’)
The ES-210 provides four independent
1x6 Frequency DAs in a single
rack-mount enclosure. Each DA
has loop-thru inputs and six isolated
outputs, all accessible via BNC
connectors. Screwdriver-adjustable
Gain controls are provided on the
front of the case. The Gain control
provides an overall signal level
adjustment of -1.6 to +3.4 db. Unused
outputs need not be terminated.
The ES-242 is a quad, 6-output
IRIG Time Code DA. Each amplifier
provides a loop-thru input & six 600
ohm outputs. The inputs/outputs are
connected via rear mounted BNC
connectors. The unit distributes IRIG
A, B, E, NASA36, XR3, 2137 & CS3 time
codes it has a transformerless design
that takes a single unbalanced input
and provides six unbalanced single
ended outputs.
The ES-243 is designed to accept
any ESE time code signal or any
IRIG time code in its “TTL” form
and output up to 24 identical
copies. The unit has four separate
and isolated channels, each with
six available outputs. Inputs and
outputs are via rear mounted BNC
connectors and each output is
capable of driving up to 4000’ of
cable.
ES-249
1x8 RS-232C/ASCII DA
ES-250
1 x 24 RS-232/ASCII DA
ES-251
1 x 24 RS-232/ASCII DA
The ES-249 is designed to accept
RS-232C/ASCII and output up to
eight identical copies. The unit has
a single input and eight outputs
that are accessible on rear
mounted 9-pin D-sub connectors.
Due to the nature of RS-232C, if long
cable runs are required, it may be
necessary to utilize other time code
that is later translated into RS-232C.
The unit is rack mounted.
The ES-250 is an RS-232C Isolation
and Distribution Amplifier. Three 1 x
8 amplifier circuits allow the incoming
signal to be distributed via the 24
outputs. The unit receives RS-232C
and buffers the signal so that each
of the 24 outputs can drive a single
“user” at a distance of up to 50 feet
(per output). All inputs and outputs
are via rear mounted terminal
block connectors.
The ES-251 is an RS-232C Isolation
and Distribution Amplifier. Three 1 x
8 amplifier circuits allow the incoming
signal to be distributed via the 24
outputs. The unit receives RS-232C
and buffers the signal so that each
of the 24 outputs can drive a single
“user” at a distance of up to 50 feet
(per output). All inputs and outputs
are via rear mounted terminal DB-9
connectors.

AUDIO LEVEL INDICATORS
ESE offers two basic versions of the “Digital” Audio Level (VU) Indicator. Each version
has a reference level (“0 dB”) adjustment and is optionally available in a rack mount
configuration with as many as six units mounted on a single 1 3/4” x 19” panel.
Features:
ES-215
• Accurate
• Easy To Read
• Peak or VU Mode
ES-214
• Simple Installation
• Attractive & Low Cost
ES-216
• Low Power Consumption
The ES-214 (vertical mount) and ES-215 (horizontal
& rack mount) are “in-line” VU Indicators which
provide a purely digital representation of an audio
signal’s loudness. Each has identical
circuitry with fourteen LED’s (nine
green, one yellow and four red) that
display loudness at -25, -20, -15, -10,
-7, -5, -3, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2, +3 and +4dB.
Units are shipped in the Peak mode
unless otherwise specified, however,
Fast Averaging or Slow Averaging
(VU) can be optionally requested.
The ES-215 can be ordered on a rack
mount panel with one, two,three,
four or six units mounted on the same
panel.
The ES-216 is a small meter-sized unit which simulates
the “flying wand” effect of its “analog” counterparts.
The unit displays audio levels in ten discrete steps
(-20, -10, -7, -5, -3, -1, 0, +1, +2 and +3
dB) using three red, one yellow and
six green LED’s. It can be console or
panel mounted and is designed to fit
into the same opening as many of the
commonly used mechanical meters.
The rack mount options allow the unit(s)
to be mounted one, two, three or four
per panel. Either Peak or VU operation
can be specified, (the unit is shipped
in the Peak mode unless otherwise
specified).
