PDF Content Summary:


****** Page 2 ****** DESCRIPTION Your DA103 and DMA103 Audio Distribution Amplifiers are inexpensive high performance amplifiers designed to split and isolate audio signal lines. The DA103 accepts a line level input, balanced or unbalanced audio at -20, -10 or +4dBu nominal level and provides a line level output at +4dBm nominal to balanced or unbalanced output lines. The DA103 input/output connectors are two piece solderless “Phoenix” types, individual for each input and output line. The DMA103 accepts a microphone level input signal and provides either line or microphone level outputs to drive balanced or unbalanced lines. Phantom microphone power is provided and all audio connections are made using XLR type connectors. CIRCUIT DETAILS The DA103 accepts a maximum line input level of +22dBu to high impedance (20Kohms) balanced instrumentation amplifier input (A1) and drives three servo balanced 600-ohm (minimum load) outputs (A3, A4, A5) up to +22dBm maximum. An internal input gain setting jumper plug optimizes the input stage gain, noise and headroom for nominal inputs at -20, -10 or +4dBu. The Master Gain Control (R14a) adjusts all outputs simultaneously to compensate for input signal changes while individual output trimmers accommodate differing nominal output level requirements from -10dBu to +8dBm. Up to 40dB maximum gain is available. The servo-balanced outputs automatically detect single-ended (one side grounded) loads; remove the drive signal from the grounded output and double the signal applied to the ungrounded output thus maintaining equal gain for both types of loading. The DMA103 boosts a microphone level input up to line level with up to 80dB gain. A low noise transformerless input stage (A1) allows internal DIPswitch (S 1) selection of input gain from 10, 20, 40 or 60dB to optimally match low or high output microphones. A Master Gain Control is provided and individual front trimmers match differing output level requirements from -10 to +8dBm. Phantom microphone power at regulated +20.2 VDC from AIO is selected with an internal DIPswitch and is sufficient for most powered microphones. +48VDC phantom power is also available as a plug-in option (PH48-1); consult factory. Three servo-balanced output drivers drive balanced or one-side-grounded loads and individual jumper plug 54dB output attenuators (Pl, P2, P3) provide -50dBm microphone level outputs if necessary.

****** Page 3 ****** The DA103 and DMA103 require 22 to 30VDC and are designed to share a common external 24VDC “Wall Wart” type power supply, included with each unit. A pair of loop-thru DC connectors on the rear of each module permits several units to be daisy-chained with P/N 20602-1 DC power loop-thru cables to a single power supply. The WA 100-1 and WA 100-2 (universal 90-264VAC, available at extra charge) are 400mA supplies. The DA103 and DMA103 both draw about 100mA at full output. Any combination, which adds up to less than the supply rating, can be powered by a single supply. INSTALLATION UNPACKING Inspect the equipment. Shake it to see if anything is rattling around inside. If there is any visible damage to the unit or to the box it came in, contact the factory but do not return anything to ATI without prior authorization and shipping instructions. It may be necessary to have the shipping company inspect the unit and the box at your location. Count the pieces! Don’t throw out the boxes and packing material until you are sure you have everything that is coming to you. NANOAMPS need either their own WAIOO power supply or a DC cable, P/N 20602-1 to share the supply of another NANOAMP. Rack and desk mounting hardware may be packed in with the unit even though ordered separately. WIRING AUDIO CONNECTIONS DMA103 – balanced XLR type inputs and outputs are wired with pin 2 as HI and pin 3 as LOW. Pin 1 is the cable shield and ground connection. DA103 – line level audio connections are made to the Phoenix type two-piece connectors (Hi – Lo – Shield) using the rear label as a guide. Connectors separate with a straight pull toward the rear. Strip the wires cleanly without nicking, clamp them in the plug by tightening the screws and reinsert the plug into the receptacle. Active balanced outputs and inputs require a reference ground connection to the source or receiving device for proper operation. This ground can be provided by the rack frame or a studio ground bus connection if the cable shield does not carry it through. ATI Audio Inc. Tel• 856-719-9900 Fax. 856-5040220

****** Page 4 ****** GROUNDING Operation in high RF broadcast environments requires special attention to grounding and shielding. The chassis must be grounded directly to a good, low impedance studio ground system. Input and output connections must be properly shielded and free of ground loops. It may even be necessary to add shielding to the DC input leads to avoid RF pickup. POWER DISTRIBUTION Multiple NANOAMPS sharing a single wall-wart power supply should be looped through each other using the DC interconnects cables P/N 20602-1. Hum and noise performance of the units can be degraded by poor DC ground connections between units sharing a common supply. Use of the recommended rack and desk mounting kits will assure a good ground connection between units by firmly strapping their chassis together. CAUTION! The outer shell of the DC interconnect cables is positive relative to the chassis. Do not allow a DC cable plugged into a powered unit to hang loose where it can short against the chassis or rack frame. SETUP Before mounting your product in a rack, remove the top cover (4 upper side screws) and set the DA103 preamp gain jumper to match the nominal input line level. For for the DMA103, set the preamp gain with the DIP rocker switch to the highest level that does not cause input circuit clipping. Higher output mics will require lower gains (20-30dB) while low output mics will require higher gain settings (40-60dB). Also set phantom power ON or OFF as needed and select line (+4dBm) or mic level (-50dBm) outputs with jumper plugs Pl , P2 or P3. MOUNTING NANOAMP units may be rack mounted one, two, or three across in a standard ElA 19″ rack and will require only 1-3/4″ of vertical space. Rack mount kit P/N 21075-501 mounts one, two or three units. When rack mounting fewer than three units, you may wish to tidy up your installation with our 1/3 RU Filler Panels, P/N 21097-501 Single desk mounting kits consist of a pair of angled base plates that mount under the lower front and rear cover screws of a single unit to raise and to tilt it for easy use. In addition, one or more sets of vertical stacking plates, mounting to the upper front and rear cover screws of the bottom unit, allow multiple units to be stacked. Several units can be desk mounted side-by-side and even stacked side-by-side using horizontal joiner kits together with mounting base and stacker kits. P/N 20617-501 is the angled base kit. P/N 20617-502 is the base plus one stacker kit (two high). P/N 20617-503 is the base plus two stackers (three high). P/N 20617-504 is the 2-unit stacker kit by itself. ATI Audio Inc.

****** Page 5 ****** OPTIONS 230VAC OPERATION The WAI 00-2 power supply accepts 90-264VAC at 47-63Hz and is supplied with interchangeable AC input connectors for worldwide use. BATTERY OPERATION Alkaline battery packs (BBUIOO-I), 24VDC gel cell rechargeable battery packs (PPA-I) and a DC converter (DCAIOO-I) to operate from 12V belt pack, NP-I or auto batteries. 48VDC PHANTOM POWER (DMA103 only) A DC converter P/N PH48-1 can boost the phantom power up to +48VDC. MAINTENANCE There is no routine maintenance required for your NANOAMP. If you have a problem, check panel LED indicators to assure that the units have DC power, eliminate by substitution input and output cables, connectors, downstream devices, DC interconnect cables and Wall Wart power supplies. If you are still experiencing a problem, call us and ask for technical support. POWER SUPPLY LEVELS The recommended loaded DC input voltage range is 22VDC minimum to 32VDC maximum over the full range of AC line voltage tolerances. The audio circuits will continue to work with reduced headroom below 22VDC but the phantom microphone power will drop out of regulation. OPERATING POINTS An internal reference voltage equal to 1/2 the supply voltage is generated. All audio stage IC inputs and outputs should show a DC level equal to this voltage when measured with a high impedance meter. Audio inputs and outputs are capacitor coupled and ground referenced.
