INTERFACES
Rack-mountable interface frames offer a scalable way to hold
interface modules and directly connect external audio sources
to the Eclipse HX systems.
IMF-3 interface frame holds up to 11 interface modules
in a 3RU chassis. Modular rear-mounted connector units
feature two RJ-45 connectors to the matrix ports and two
DB-9s attaching the connected devices. The frame is used in
conjunction with the PSU-101 rack-mountable dual power
supply, providing power to the enclosed interfaces.
PSU-101 is the power supply for the IMF-3 interface frame.
It has both an audible failure alarm and failure relay contacts
to activate a remote signal. A single PSU-101 will power
a minimum of two interface frames depending on the type
of interfaces and their individual power requirements.
IMF-102 interface frame combines an internal power
supply, connection for a second redundant supply, a rear
input/ output connector panel and slots for two modular
interfaces – all in a 1RU chassis. The compact frame
offers a practical way to add two interfaces to an Eclipse
HX-Omega, Median, Delta or PiCo Matrix frame. A PSU-101
can be added for power supply redundancy.
TW-60 interface supports “Radio Interoperability” and
interfaces with up to four Land Mobile Radios. The
interface can connect to earphone, microphone and
push-to-talk radio controls. An audio output delay, to
allow key-up time of a radio system on the outbound
side of each connection, is also included with delay
between 0 and 5000ms. Receive level, Transmit level and
Delay time are three separate controls for each radio.
BAL-8 (8-way Transformer Balance unit) is a 1RU
interface containing eight transformer isolated ports.
The unit isolates the connection between matrix ports
and peripheral devices such as two-way radios and
four-wires. (All Eclipse HX matrix direct outputs are
low and impedance electronically balanced.)
IFB-104 (IFB line Interface) is a 1RU panel that directly
connects up to four IFB feeds to the ports of a digital matrix
system. Individual or multiple IFB ear buds or headphones
may be used directly from each connected matrix port.
8 Clear-Com Eclipse HX
The IFB-104 does not require external power to drive its
circuitry. Each channel has a rear-mounted wet/dry switch,
allowing either direct connection or powering via a partyline
intercom power supply. The signal from the matrix port is
transformer-coupled to the XLR connector output.
INTERFACE MODULES
Connections with third-party devices or panels are enabled
in Eclipse HX using a variety of interface modules.
CCI-22 (Dual Partyline Ring Interface
Module) connects two 2-wire full-duplex
partyline circuits with the matrix. The interface
supports Clear-Com signaling to and from
the matrix system, deriving its power from the
external partyline circuit. Levels and cable
nulling are completely adjustable. The CCI-22
functions with Clear-Com and other two-wire
intercom systems. The CCI-22 can also connect
to V-Series panels for remote operation over
IP networks.
RLY-6 (6-way Relay Control Module)
provides six fully programmable SPDT
(Single Pole, Double Throw) relay outputs
to support dedicated switching functions
external to the matrix system. This provides
for external DC signal light activation or
door control, for example.
FOR-22 (Dual 4-wire Transformer Balance and
Radio Relay Control Module) connects two
external four-wire circuits to the matrix. The
module provides proper impedance matching,
transformer isolation and level adjustments
between systems. It also supports external relay
activation and call-sense circuitry. The FOR-22
can also connect to V-Series panels for remote
operation over IP networks.
AES-6-CX and AES-6-RJ
The six-channel AES-6-CX module connects
V-Series panels to Eclipse HX matrices over AES3
digital audio pairs (RJ) or Co-Ax (CX), providing
two audio paths to the intercom panel. Alternately,
these modules can be used to connect Eclipse HX
to third party equipment, with AES interface ports.
TEL-14 (Dual Telephone Interface Module)
The two-line, auto-nulling digital hybrid
telephone interface module is designed for
establishing IFB connections between the main
intercom and remote production trucks, and
enabling telephone calls directly from any
intercom panel in an Eclipse HX matrix.
GPI-6 (6-way General Purpose Input Control
Module) provides six general purpose Opto
logic inputs into the matrix, allowing external
sources to trigger routing changes and other
events through the matrix system.
