  • Description

    This classic 'on-air' light system gives a clear indication to station staff that the microphone is live. It is designed to be placed just outside the studio to prevent unwanted intrusions during links!


    The system is self contained and is designed to directly connect to studio desks which have mic switching circuitry - The majority of professional studio desks are fitted with a function which closes a set on contacts when microphone channels are opened. These can be used to directly control this type of on air light.


    The system is based on the Canford Audio Type B unit which incorporates the mains switching facility into the base of the light fitting eliminating the need for additional opto switching. Simply plug the light unit into a suitable 13A Socket and run the control cable to your mixing desk.


    The control cable is fitted with a DIN 5 connector. Shorting Pins 1 & 2 will cause the light to illuminate.


    Radiquip can often supply jumper leads to integrate the system with common studio desks. Please ask for details.
