Please note that all baluns come as singles unless otherwise noted.
AES/EBU Digital Audio Isolated Balun - F-BNC to M-XLR - Each from Computer Cable Store™. ETS, long a leader in baluns for computer networks, applies our expertise in Balanced Line technology to the XLR to BNC
Digital Audio Isolated Baluns (DAB) and DAB Panels. The PA810 Series of Baluns and balun panels from ETS are designed to connect AES/EBU signals from XLR output equipment into standard 75O coax cabling systems. These baluns perform precise impedance matching and signal balancing, allowing AES/EBU signals to be transmitted with great signal integrity and longer runs over Coaxial Cable
than can be achieved with STP wiring. Isolated versions are available for VDA and router applications.
The newest members of this family are the PA818-X Digital Audio Panels. Incorporating all of the functionality of our baluns in a convenient, 8 channel, single rack height unit, an isolated outputs and monitor ports for each channel are standard. Features/Advantages
Coaxial cable is a cable consisting of an inner conductor, surrounded by a tubular insulating layer typically made from a flexible material with a high dielectric constant, all of which is then surrounded by another conductive layer (typically of fine woven wire for flexibility, or of a thin metallic foil), and then finally covered again with a thin insulating layer on the outside. The term coaxial comes from the inner conductor and the outer shield sharing the same geometric axis. Coaxial cables are often used as a transmission line for radio frequency signals. In a hypothetical ideal coaxial cable the electromagnetic field carrying the signal exists only in the space between the inner and outer conductors. Practical cables achieve this objective to a high degree. A coaxial cable provides protection of signals from external electromagnetic interference, and effectively guides signals with low emission along the length of the cable.
The BNC (Bayonet Neill Concelman) connector is a very common type of RF connector used for terminating coaxial cable. The BNC connector is used for RF signal connections, for analog and Serial Digital Interface video signals, amateur radio antenna connections, aviation electronics (avionics) and many other types of electronic test equipment. It is an alternative to the RCA connector when used for composite video on commercial video devices, although many consumer electronics devices with RCA jacks can be used with BNC-only commercial video equipment via a simple adapter. BNC connectors were commonly used on 10base2 thin Ethernet networks, both on cable interconnections and network cards, though these have largely been replaced by newer Ethernet devices whose wiring does not use coaxial cable. Some ARCNET networks use BNC-terminated coax.
