ControlSpace® EP40-D 4-input Dante™ Endpoint

ControlSpace® EP40-D
4-input Dante™ Endpoint
Product Description
The Bose® ControlSpace® EP40-D 4-input Dante endpoint is the ideal
interface for ­adding mic/line inputs to a Dante-based network audio
system. It features four balanced mic/line inputs, each with front-panel
­indicators showing channel gain/pad 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 endpoints to use a single CAT5 home run connection to a network switch. Power can also be daisychained. The EP40-D is powered by either an external +24VDC supply
or any PoE network switch. Mic/line gain and +48VDC phantom power
are controllable per channel using ControlSpace Designer™ software.
Key Features
• Hotel ballrooms
• Integrated discovery, routing, configuration and control using
­ControlSpace Designer™ software
• Conference/meeting centers
• Four balanced mic/line inputs using 3-pin Euroblock ­connectors
• Eight mic/line gain settings to accommodate any analog input level –
gain is individually adjustable per channel via ControlSpace Designer
• 802.3af compliant PoE powered to work with any compliant PoE
­network switch, or an external +24VDC supply
• Conference rooms
• Sports facilities
• Convention centers
• Religious and worship facilities
• Retrofit applications using existing
networking cables
• +48VDC Phantom power – software switchable per channel
• ID indicator allows easy identification of which EP40-D is
­communicating with ControlSpace Designer software
• Dante daisy-chaining allows multiple EP40-Ds to be connected over a
single home-run to the Ethernet switch
