About A-Net
The Pro16® version of A-Net® is a high-speed data transmission protocol
capable of sending and receiving high-quality digital audio using readily
available Cat-5 cables. A-Net is a proprietary technology developed by
Aviom.
A-Net is based on the physical layer of Ethernet, a Local Area Network (or
LAN) technology. This provides A-Net with a mature and robust base on
which to build. However, it is important to note that A-Net devices are not
compatible with Ethernet devices.
As used in the Pro16 series products, the A-Net signal carries sixteen channels
of digital data from the AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module to each A-Net device
connected to the system.
AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module User Guide
3
Some of the benefits of using A-Net to transmit digital audio are:
• Virtually no latency
• No ground loops
• Easy cabling using readily available components
• An unlimited number of A-Net devices can be used in a
system
• Ease in spanning long distances between system
components
P Note: While the Cat-5e cables and connectors used on your Aviom
products look like typical computer Ethernet network connections,
do not connect computers, routers, or other home and business
networking equipment to your Aviom products.
Other options for protection of your equipment include the use of an AC
line conditioner or a battery backup system (sometimes referred to as an
uninterruptible power supply, or UPS).
Compatibility with Pro64
Many Pro16 products can be connected to a Pro64® A-Net system with the
addition of the ASI A-Net Systems Interface. The ASI translates Pro64 A-Net
data into Pro16 data and separates the 64-channel Pro64 stream into up to
four 16-channel Pro16 outputs, depending on the Pro64 sample rate being
used.
Only Pro16 devices that have an A-Net In port such as Personal Mixers, A-Net
Distributors, and output modules are compatible with Pro64 and the ASI.
Pro16 input modules and console cards cannot send their data into a Pro64
network.
About Category 5
Category 5 (sometimes referred to as Cat-5) describes a commonly used type
of high performance network cabling. It is used mainly for data transmission
purposes to connect computers, modems and other devices. A standard
Category 5 patch cable consists of four twisted pairs of copper wire terminated
by RJ45 male connectors. The cable assembly is used to provide connectivity
between any two Cat-5 female outlet jacks. A variation, called Category
5e (or Cat-5e), uses additional twists in the cable to reduce interference in
high-speed network applications. In general, when using long cable lengths,
select Cat-5e cables for best performance. Use Cat-5e Unshielded Twisted
Pair (UTP) cables or better for all A-Net applications.
AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module User Guide
4
The RJ45 connector looks similar to the connectors found on a telephone
system, only larger. The twisting of the wire pairs helps to shield the cable
from unwanted interference from electrical fields or radio interference
(sometimes referred to as “RF”). Cat-5 cabling supports frequencies up to 100
MHz and speeds up to 1000 Mbps.
RJ45 Jack
Cat-5 Cable
Cat-5 Cables
The cables used with your Aviom system are interchangeable with any
standard Cat-5e cables. If you need a longer cable for a particular application,
any computer store should be able to supply you with an appropriate cable.
A qualified technician should be able to build custom cables to any length
(up to the maximum of 500 feet (150 meters) between components).
For fixed or permanent installations, you have the option of running Cat-5
cables inside walls and terminating them with readily available wall panel
connectors that include the RJ45 jack. (Solid wire is recommended for
permanent installations.)
In addition to standard Cat-5e cables, Category 6 (Cat-6) cables can also be
used.
P Note: When purchasing Category 5e cables, be sure to buy only standard
Cat-5e UTP cables, not those sold as crossover cables. A crossover
cable is used for file transfer between two computers and is not
compatible with your Aviom equipment.
Cable Lengths
Cat-5e cables used with your Aviom products can be up to 500 feet
(approximately 150 meters) in length between devices. The maximum cable
length specification applies to the cable connected between the AN-16/i-M
Mic Input Module and the first Pro16 output module (or Personal Mixer) in
your system as well as for cable runs between each additional Pro16 A-Net
compatible device in your system.

Your cable length performance will be affected by a number of factors
including the quality of the cables used, and the number of devices such as
cable couplers used or passive wall panel interconnections in use. Use Cat-5e
cable for best performance wherever possible. Stranded or solid Cat-5e cable
can be used.
When using the optional AN-16SBR System Bridge, the cable length
specification applies to the total cable length between the two A-Net devices
being connected with the AN-16SBR System Bridge. This is similar to what
happens when using an inline coupler to extend cable lengths.
Total A-Net cable length can be 500 feet (150 meters)

Pre-made cables in a variety of lengths and colors are available at most
computer outlets. Cables can be extended by using a simple passive device
called an inline coupler to add length to existing cables (as long as you do not
exceed the specified maximum cable length). If you need a longer cable on
occasion, this is a simple solution. Note that it is possible that the maximum
AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module User Guide
6
cable length specification can be compromised by using inline couplers or
other passive connection devices.
AC Line Conditioning
Aviom products are digital devices and as such are sensitive to sudden spikes
and drops in the AC line voltage. Changes in the line voltage from lightning,
power outages, etc. can sometimes damage electronic equipment.
To minimize the chance of damage to your equipment from sudden changes
in the AC line voltage, you may want to plug your equipment into a power
source that has surge and spike protection. Power outlet strips are available
with built-in surge protection circuits that may help protect your equipment.
Other options for protection of your equipment include the use of an AC
line conditioner or a battery backup system (sometimes referred to as an
uninterruptible power supply, or UPS).
Rack Mounting
The AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module is designed to be installed in a standard
19-inch audio equipment rack. Each unit takes up three standard rack spaces
(19 inches wide by 5.25 inches high).
The rack ears on each side of the device are designed to support the weight
of the AN-16/i-M without additional hardware. Each rack ear contains holes
for two screws per side. Always support the unit with all four screws.
To rack mount Mic Input Module, position it in the equipment rack at the
desired location. Use standard rack-mounting screws (10-32 size) to attach
the unit to your rack hardware. Tighten all four screws firmly, but avoid
overtightening.
Aviom suggests the use of non-metallic washers between the rack-mounting
screws and the device’s finished surface to avoid marring the painted finish
on your Aviom products.
Always allow adequate ventilation for devices mounted in equipment racks.
Avoid placing your AN-16/i-M directly above or below other rack-mounted
devices that produce high levels of heat, such as power amps.
AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module User Guide

EtherCon Connector
Some Aviom products use EtherCon® Cat-5 connectors. The Neutrik EtherCon
connector is a dual RJ45 type connector. It can receive a standard Cat-5e
cable or a cable fitted with the special heavy-duty EtherCon connector.
When using a standard Cat-5e cable, plug the cable into the center of the
jack; release the cable by pressing on the small plastic tab built into the cable
connector.
The locking EtherCon connector is similar to an XLR cable, the kind commonly
used on microphones. Insert an EtherCon equipped cable into the jack until
it clicks and locks in place. To remove the cable, press on the metal release
tab at the top of the panel-mounted EtherCon jack and pull the connector
outward.
Cleaning and Maintenance Information
The exterior of your Aviom products should be cleaned with a dry, soft, lintfree cloth. For tougher dirt, you can use a cloth slightly dampened with water
or with a mild detergent.
When cleaning your Aviom products, never spray cleaners directly onto the
product surfaces. Instead, spray a small amount of the cleaning solution onto
a clean cloth first. Then use the dampened cloth to clean the product.
P Note: Never use solvents or abrasive cleaners on the finished surfaces of
your Aviom products.

present, one LED to display when signal levels reach a point that is 10dB from
maximum level, and another used to indicate that the input to a channel is
causing audio clipping.
The lower LED, marked Signal, will light as long as an audio signal of at least
-40dB is present on the channel. It provides an easy way to confirm that audio
is indeed passing into—and being processed by—the AN-16/i-M.
The center LED lights when audio signals reach a level that is within 10dB of
the maximum level before clipping.
The upper LED is marked Clip. It lights when input signal levels exceed the
maximum of 0dB. If the Clip LED is lighting frequently, you should lower the
level of the audio source using the AN-16/i-M Gain knob.
Phantom Power Switch
Phantom power is provided for condenser mics on each channel. Engaging
the Phantom Power switch for a channel delivers +48 volts to the XLR jack
on the rear panel of the AN-16/i-M. The LED lights to indicate that phantom
power is on.
P Note: Avoid using phantom power with line-level devices.
Use caution when activating phantom power to avoid damage to ribbon
microphones, for example.
Gain Knob
Each channel has a rotary Gain knob with variable gain. Two gain ranges are
available, one for mic-level signals connected via the XLR jack and another
for line-level signals connected to the TRS balanced inputs on the rear panel
combo jacks.
The XLR input has a gain range of +6dB to +60dB. The TRS input gain range is
from -15dB to +36dB. The XLR input will be most often used with microphone
signals, although it can also accept line-level signals.
Low Cut Filter (Rolloff)
Below the Gain knob is the Low Cut switch. It provides a low frequency
rolloff at 85Hz that can be used to minimize low frequency artifacts such as
vibration noise and rumble. Press the switch in to engage the rolloff. In the
up position, marked Flat, the low cut filter is not engaged.

Phase Invert Switch
The Phase Invert switch alters the polarity of the audio signal on a perchannel basis. It can be used to correct phase anomalies that sometimes
occur when using multiple microphones on the same sound source (such as
a drum kit). To invert the phase of a channel, set the channel’s Phase switch
to the in position.
The Stereo Link Switch
The AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module provides an easy solution for stereo input
sources such as mixer sub-groups, keyboards, effects device outputs, CD
players, etc. The Stereo Link switch is most useful when used to turn a pair
of adjacent channels into a stereo channel pair that can be controlled as a
single source on the Pro16 Personal Mixer products, including the A-16II and
A-16R.
When using the AN-16/i-M Input Module with AN-16/o Output Modules
alone to create an audio network or digital snake, the setting of the Stereo
Link switch will have no effect.
There are eight Stereo Link switches on the front panel of the AN-16/i-M.
They can be used in any combination, as your needs require. The Stereo Link
switch is located between two channels—one odd and one even. Stereo
Links always affect adjacent channels (for example channels 1 and 2, or
channels 13 and 14).
AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module User Guide
15
The default setting, with the Stereo Link switch to the left, allows independent
control of each input channel from A-Net Personal Mixer products connected
to the system.
To link channels together as a stereo input, move the Stereo Link switch to
the right. (Moving the switch to the link position causes all Personal Mixers
connected to the system (including the A-16CS Control Surface used with the
A-16R) to instantly update their channel status.)
Some things to keep in mind about linked channels:
• The position of the Stereo Link switch does not affect the
audio in the AN-16/o Output Module.
• Linking channels affects all A-Net Personal Mixers
connected to the system.
• Any combination of stereo and mono channels can be
used.
• If you want to control two input channels as a stereo
source, they must be connected to an odd and even pair
of channels, as indicated by the graphics on the AN-16/i-M
front panel.
• Changes to the Stereo Link status can be made on the fly,
with audio running through the system.
• All Personal Mixers will instantly update their channel
status if the Link switch position is changed for any channel
pair.
• Link status is not saved when you create a Preset on A-16II
or A-16R Personal Mixers.
• Changing the channel link status may affect Groups you
have created on A-16II and A-16R Personal Mixers in some
cases.
Power LED
The right side of the AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module front panel interface also
contains the Power LED. This indicator shows that power is connected to
the unit. When the AN-16/i-M is powered up, a valid A-Net signal is being
generated.

The AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module comes with an internal switching-type
power supply. This type of power supply can be used worldwide with a wide
range of AC wall current output voltages. You do not need to replace the
power supply if the unit will be used in countries where current voltages are
different if you travel with your Aviom gear occasionally. (You may, however,
need plug adapters to allow the power supply to be connected to wall outlets
internationally since many countries use different physical plug layouts for
their power systems.)

Channel Input Jacks
The rear panel of the AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module contains sixteen audio input
jacks. Microphones or line-level audio signals can be used. The combo jack
used for audio input can accept an XLR connector or a ¼-inch TRS connector.
The XLR input is designed to accept microphone-level signals from dynamic or
condenser microphones. Phantom power (+48V) is supplied for each channel
for use with condenser mics. The XLR input can also accept a line-level audio
signal. But, be aware that using the XLR jack for a line-level input can cause
clipping with some extremely hot audio signals. If adjusting the Gain knob on
the front panel does not reduce the clipping, use the TRS input instead.

Balanced signals (sometimes referred to as TRS, for Tip, Ring, and Sleeve) are
found on many professional audio devices. The ¼-inch connector used for
balanced audio wiring has three conductors: the tip, the ring, and the sleeve.
The balanced wiring system is ideal for keeping noise out of the audio signal
from sources such as radio interference (sometimes called “RF”).
Unbalanced audio signals (sometimes referred to as TS, for Tip and Sleeve)
are found on many effects processors, music keyboards, and consumer
electronics. Only two connectors on the ¼-inch plug are used, the tip and the
sleeve. A standard musical instrument cable (sometimes called a guitar cord)
uses this configuration, for example.

A-Net outputs and A-Net Expansion connections
A-Net Main Out
The A-Net Out jack sends the A-Net data from the AN-16/i-M to an A-Net
compatible device such as the AN-16/o Output Module. The AN-16/i-M has
two A-Net Out jacks. The first, marked Main Out, is designed to be used as
the primary A-Net connection to other devices. It has the ability to be used
with the Expansion jack when creating digital snakes of up to 32 channels
(described later).
A-Net Aux Out
The second A-Net Out jack, labeled Aux Out, carries only the A-Net signal
generated by the AN-16/i-M locally and cannot be used with the Expansion
jack in a 32-channel snake or audio network configuration.
Use any standard Cat-5e cable for connections between devices. Remember
that the maximum cable length between A-Net devices is 500 feet (150
AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module User Guide
20
meters), including connections using System Bridges.
When a proper A-Net connection between the AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module
and an AN-16/o Output Module (or Pro16 Series Personal Mixer) exists, the
A-Net Active LED on the receiving device will light.
A-Net Expansion
The A-Net Expansion jack is used when creating a 32-channel digital snake
or audio network using at least two AN-16/i-M Mic Input Modules and two
AN-16/o Output Modules or other compatible output devices. Using the
A-Net Expansion jack allows thirty-two channels of data to travel down a
single Cat-5e cable up to 500 feet (150 meters) to the destination AN-16/i-M
or AN-16/o units.
Series and Parallel Connections
In a simple system, the easiest connection method uses what is called a
daisy-chain. That is, each A-Net device is connected in series. The first device
in the chain receives the A-Net signal from the AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module.
Each successive A-Net compatible device gets its A-Net connection from the
A-Net Out jack of the device preceding it in the chain.
There is one drawback to this connection method, however. If one A-Net
device in the chain is disconnected from the A-Net signal chain, all units
beyond this point will not get any audio until the unit is reconnected to a
valid A-Net source.

Connecting an Output Module
To convert the mic- or line-level signals connected to the AN-16/i-M back to
16 discrete channels of analog audio, the AN-16/i-M needs to be connected
to a compatible A-Net output module such as the AN-16/o Output Module.
Simply connect a Cat-5e cable from A-Net Out on the AN-16/i-M to A-Net In
on the output module.

Adding Splits
When additional copies of the same audio channels are needed—a digital
split—using A-Net allows easy system expansion. The A-Net Out jack on the
AN-16/o can be used to send an exact copy of the audio data being received
to as many AN-16/o Output Modules as required, creating an infinite number
of digital splits each of which can be up to 500 feet (150 meters) apart.
The diagram below shows a simple system with one AN-16/i-M Mic Input
Module connected to one AN-16/o Output Module. Audio connected to the
AN-16/i-M is delivered to the AN-16/o via A-Net. By connecting additional
AN-16/o Output Modules, any number of exact copies of the sixteen input
channels can be added. Remember, cable runs between devices can be up to
500 feet (150 meters) for added flexibility.

Extending A-Net Cable Runs
To go longer than the maximum specified distance A-Net allows (500 feet,
150 meters), the A-16D (or A-16D Pro) A-Net Distributor can be used as a
signal repeater. Simply insert the A-16D or A-16D Pro into the A-Net stream
at the 500-foot point and the A-Net signal will be refreshed. Another 500
feet/150 meters of cable can be added. This process can be repeated as many
times as required to extend cables.
For extremely long distance application, fiber optic cable can be used to
span distances up to 50 miles (80km) with the use of devices called media
converters. A media converter changes the Ethernet-based A-Net signal to
fiber optical at the source location and then back to Cat-5 at the destination.
Several companies make media converters that can be used with your Aviom
equipment.

Audio Networks
Pro16 A-Net input and output modules can be combined to create digital
snakes and audio networks of up to sixty-four audio channels with unlimited
expansion. When more than sixteen channels of audio are required in a Pro16
system, there are several options available.
Systems using sixteen or thirty-two audio channels can be configured with
no additional hardware using the built in A-Net Expansion port. For systems
larger than thirty-two channels, Aviom offers the AN-16SBR System Bridge as
an option. The System Bridge allows up to four A-Net streams to be combined
into a single Cat-5e cable for distribution over long distances.
16-Channel Systems
The simplest form of digital snake using A-Net devices is one input module
connected to one output module. For example, the AN-16/i-M can be
connected with one Cat-5e cable to an AN-16/o Output Module located at
the mix position to deliver sixteen discreet line-level audio signals to a frontof-house (FOH) mixing console.
The flexibility of A-Net allows far more than just the simple snake
configuration outlined above, however. In fact, any number of Pro16 A-Net
devices can be connected to a single input module. This allows the creation
of infinite numbers of signal splits, with each additional A-Net device being
located up to 500 feet (150 meters) away. Audio splits can be used to send
digital copies of the audio signals from the input module to a live sound
mixer, a recording system, remote broadcast truck, and a live television
broadcast facility simultaneously with no signal degradation.

32-Channel Systems
Aviom’s Pro16 Series of audio network products work in groups of sixteen
channels. Audio networks of thirty-two channels can be configured as:
• 32 channels send by zero channels return (32 x 0 )
• 16 channels send by 16 channels return (16 x 16)
• 0 channels send by 32 channels return (0 x 32)
The descriptions above are similar to those used for traditional analog
audio snakes. The configurations refer to the number of audio channels
used as inputs on each side of the snake. For example, the “32” in the 32 x
0 configuration means that 32 audio inputs can be connected at the stage
to send to the front-of-house mix position. The “0” means that on the there
are no audio inputs being sent back to the stage from the front-of-house mix
position.
A thirty-two channel system is comprised of four Pro16 Series units, two Pro16
input modules (either the AN-16/i or AN-16/i-M) and two AN-16/o Output
Modules.

Some points to remember about using the A-Net Expansion jacks on the
Pro16 input modules and AN-16/o to create a digital snake or audio network:
• When creating a network with four Pro16 Series units, one
A-Net Expansion jack will be connected to an A-Net In port
while the other A-Net Expansion jack will be connected to
an A-Net Out port.
• The A-Net Out jacks on the AN-16/o Output Modules
should be empty when only four Pro16 Series units are
being used to create a network. These are then available
for adding audio splits with additional AN-16/o Output
Modules or for connecting to a Personal Monitor Mixing
System.
• The cable connecting the two sides of the network (carry‑
ing thirty-two channels of audio) should be connected to
one A-Net In port and one A-Net Out port.
• Do not connect Cat-5e cables carrying expanded system
data (more than 16 channels) to an A-16D A-Net Distributor
or A-16II Personal Mixer.
• The maximum cable length specification of 500 feet (150
meters) applies to the length between an A-Net In port
and an A-Net Out port. Cables used to connect devices via
the A-Net Expansion jacks must fall within this maximum
distance.
• An A-Net Expansion port is never connected to another
A-Net Expansion port.
• The A-Net Main Out on the AN-16/i-M is the only A-Net jack
that works with the Expansion port.
In the following examples, either A-Net input module, the AN-16/i or the
AN-16/i-M, can be used. Only one device is shown in the illustrations. They are
referred to generically as “Pro16 input modules.”

2. Connect the second group of sixteen audio sources to
inputs 1-16 on the second input module.
3. Connect a Cat-5e cable from the A-Net Out jack on the first
input module to the A-Net Expansion jack on the second
input module.
4. Connect a cable from the A-Net Out jack on the second
Pro16 input module and run it to the destination where the
AN-16/o Output Modules are located, and plug it into the
A-Net In jack on the first AN-16/o Output Module.
5. Connect a Cat-5e cable from the A-Net Expansion jack on
the first AN-16/o to the A-Net In on the second AN-16/o.
6. Patch the audio outputs from the two AN-16/o Output
Modules into the desired destinations.
Either AN-16/i or AN-16/i-M Input Modules can be used as needed for this
application.
Remember that the maximum cable length between A-Net devices is 500

Cabling for a 16 x 16 system; use either AN-16/i or AN-16/i-M Input Modules
as needed.
To configure a 16 x 16 system:
1. Set up one Pro16 input module (AN-16/i or AN-16/i-M) and
one AN-16/o on each side of the network. (For example,
one set is at the front-of-house mix position, the matching
set is placed on the stage.)
2. Connect sixteen mic- or line-level audio sources to inputs
1-16 on the first Pro16 input module.
3. Connect a Cat-5e cable from the A-Net Out jack on the
first input module to the A-Net Expansion jack on the first
AN-16/o.
4. Plug a Cat-5e cable into the A-Net In jack on the first
AN-16/o Output Module. This cable will be used to span
up to 500 feet/150 meters between the two sides of the
network.
5. Connect the cable from the A-Net In jack in Step 4 to the
A-Net Out jack on the second Pro16 input module.
6. Connect the second group of sixteen audio sources to
inputs 1-16 on the second Pro16 input module.
7. Connect a Cat-5e cable from the A-Net Expansion jack on
the second input module to the A-Net In on the second
AN-16/o.
8. Patch the audio outputs from the two AN-16/o Output
Modules into the desired destinations.

Adding More Audio Outputs
As mentioned previously, the A-Net Out jacks on the AN-16/o Output Modules
remain available even when creating a bidirectional digital snake or audio
network. This allows additional output modules to be added as needed to
create digital splits for a variety of audio situations. Any Pro16 Series A-Net
compatible product can be added to an A-Net Out port. This flexible routing
scheme allows you to easily send audio to a variety of different locations, and
to include Aviom’s Pro16 Monitor Mixing System for performers.

A 16 x 16 system with multiple splits
In this example, a 16 x 16 configuration has been expanded to include three
additional AN-16/o Output Modules on each side of the system, creating
digital splits. Each AN-16/o is connected via A-Net using a Cat-5e cable.
Remember that the cable lengths between each A-Net device can be up to
500 feet (150 meters) long.
To create an expanded network:
• First start by configuring the network according to your
basic needs (either as 32 x 0 or 16 x 16).
• Add additional AN-16/o Output modules by connecting a
Cat-5e cable from the A-Net Out port on one of the con‑
nected AN-16/o Output Modules to the A-Net In port on
AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module User Guide
32
an AN-16/o Output Module that you want to use to expand
the system.
• Each additional AN-16/o that you want to add is connected
by patching a Cat-5e cable from the A-Net Out jack on the
module preceding it to its A-Net In jack.
Using an A-Net Distributor
While the A-16D and A-16D Pro Distributors are not compatible with the data
being generated by the A-Net Expansion ports on the AN-16/i, AN-16/i-M and
AN-16/o, you can use a distributor to add wiring flexibility to your system.

Module connected to a digital snake configured as 16 x 16. In the example,
only audio channels 17-32 are being redistributed to the additional A-Net
devices. From the A-16D, up to eight Pro16 A-Net devices can be connected.
The diagram shows three AN-16/o Output Modules connected. Each can
provide sixteen discrete outputs.
An A-16R rack mounted Personal Mixer is also shown connected to the
Distributor as a personal monitor station. The A-16R can be used to mix and
monitor the same audio content in stereo. The Cat-5e cable run between
the AN-16/o and the A-16D Distributor can be up to 500 feet long, as can the
cable from the A-16D to each of the A-Net devices connected to it.
AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module User Guide

64-Channel Systems
When used with the optional AN-16SBR System Bridge, Pro16 input and
output modules can create digital snakes of up to sixty-four channels. Up
to four input modules and four output modules can be used in a variety
of combinations to create a flexible and reconfigurable audio distribution
network. Console cards can also be used as input modules.
Aviom’s Pro16 products work in modules Systems can be configured as:
• 64 channels send by zero channels return (64 x 0 )
• 48 channels send by 16 channels return (48 x 16)
• 32 channels send by 32 channels return (32 x 32)
• 16 channels send by 48 channels return (16 x 48)
• 0 channels send by 64 channels return (0 x 64)
P Note: When using the AN-16SBR System Bridge to create a digital snake,
the Expansion jacks on the Pro16 input and output modules are
not used.
System Bridge
The AN-16SBR System Bridge is a two-part accessory that takes in up to four
A-Net data streams and combines them for transmission. A single Cat-5e cable
can then be run to the destination. At the destination, another System Bridge
is used to separate the A-Net streams. The four separate A-Net data streams
can then be connected to Pro16 A-Net compatible devices as needed.

The Bridge jack of the System Bridge can accept a standard Cat-5e cable or
one fitted with the EtherCon connector. The Bridge jack will always connect
to another System Bridge’s connector of the same name.

Connecting the System Bridge
Adding a System Bridge to a system is quite simple. Two System Bridges are
used to create a network The four A-Net connectors (labeled A, B, C, and
D) on the one side of the network are directly related to the A, B, C, and D
connectors on the other side of the network. That is, if you patch an AN-16/i
Input Module into port “A” on one side of a System Bridge, an AN-16/o Output
Module would be connected to port “A” on the other side of the System
Bridge. See the following diagram.

A complete network using four units per side follows the same pattern. A
Pro16 input module connected to port B on one side of the network connects
to an AN-16/o Output Module via port B on the other side of the network.
The same goes for ports C and D, as seen in the following diagram.

To connect a 64 channel network (64 x 0):
On the Send side
1. Connect a Cat-5e cable from the A-Net Out of the first
Pro16 input module to port A on the first System Bridge.
2. Repeat this process to connect the A-Net out from the
remaining three AN-16/i or AN-16/i-M Input Modules to
ports B, C, and D.
On the Receive side
3. Connect a Cat-5e cable from port A on the second System
Bridge to the A-Net In jack on the first AN-16/o Output
Module.
AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module User Guide
35
4. Repeat this process to connect ports B, C, and D to the
remaining AN-16/o Output Modules.
5. Connect the two sides of the audio network by running
a Cat-5e cable (with or without an EtherCon connector)
between the Bridge jacks on the System Bridges.
To use other configurations, simply move any pair of input and output
modules.
In the following example, the devices connected to port D on the AN-16SBR
System Bridge have been swapped to create a 48-channel send x 16-channel
return system.

A 48 x 16 system is created by exchanging the units connected to port D on the System
Bridge.
Remember, the total cable length between A-Net devices should not exceed
500 feet. Cables used to connect A-Net devices to the System Bridge are
included in this calculation.
Configuration Notes
When configuring 64-channel systems that send data in both directions,
Aviom suggests the following module combinations. While not mandatory,
these suggestions are made to accommodate the standard wiring practices
that Ethernet cables use. Some wire pairs in a standard Ethernet Cat-5e cable
are not next to each other inside the jacket of the cable. This can account for
slightly higher data errors in rare cases.
The configuration recommendations apply to systems configured as
16 x 48 and 32 x 32, not those sending data in only one direction. The module
combinations are applicable especially when using long cable runs.
For 16 x 48 (or 48 x 16) configurations, place the three similar modules
together, connected to either ports A, B, and C on the System Bridge or to
ports B, C, and D, See the following diagrams.

Expanding a Network
As mentioned in the section on 32-channel systems, any available A-Net
Out jack on an A-Net device can be used to expand an existing system. Any
number of additional AN-16/o Output Modules can be added, as can any
number of A-16II or A-16R Personal Mixers. A-Net Distributors (the A-16D and
AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module User Guide

the A-16D Pro) can also be used to expand a system.
The following example shows one variation of an expanded system.

One side of an expanded digital snake system
This example starts as a 64 x 0 configuration (the input side of the system is
not shown in the diagram). Two of the outputs are expanded. Port A has two
AN-16/o Output Modules added. Port D has two Output Modules which then
feed an A-16D A-Net Distributor.
The A-16D Distributor connects to five A-16R rack mounted Personal Mixers
for use as a monitor system for five musicians performing live. Then, another
AN-16/o Output Module is connected via a daisy chain to the last A-16R.
Expansion of a system can continue as your needs require. Any available
A-Net Out can be used to connect to the A-Net In on any compatible device.
Each A-Net cable used can be up to 500 feet long, making this system capable
of spanning long distances between rooms, floors, etc.
Using Multiple System Bridges
Expansion of a system can include multiple System Bridges. This allows audio
to be fed to different locations as needed. Using multiple System Bridges
follows the same connection rules as outlined previously. (Port A on one
System Bridge always connects to Port A on another System Bridge, etc.)
AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module User Guide
38
System Bridges can also be used to combine A-Net streams from multiple
networks in an installation, allowing, for example, ports A and B from
Network #1 to be sent along with streams B and C from Network #2 to a third
area, creating Network #3.

The output modules connected to ports B and C from the system in the top of
the diagram are connected via their A-Net Outs to ports A and B of a second
set of System bridges. The system in the middle of the diagram’s output
modules connected to ports B and C from are connected via their A-Net Outs
to ports C and D of the second set of System bridges. This combined Bridge
output is sent up to 500 feet to another AN-16SBRwhere is separated into
four A-Net streams. The separate A-Net streams connect to AN-16/o Output
Modules.
As with all A-Net compatible devices, any available A-Net Out can be used as
a starting point for expansion or splits.
