The MON-8 is a 1 Unit high 19-inch rack mount panel designed to allow the engineer to monitor program output from each of the VA300+M amplifiers fitted to a Vodec VA300/CAGE-M. The unit consists of a compact miniature loudspeaker, volume control and eight way selector (corresponding to eight amplifier slots in the VA300/CAGE-M). Connection to the VA300/MON-8 is by twisted pair ribbon (transports program output from each amplifier selected) which routes amplifier outputs from either:
- PAS88 or
- EOL03A or
- LTP series of amplifier loudspeaker termination ports.
The complete assembly eliminates conventional hard-wiring by the employment of a “motherboard” style construction utilising a multi-sided printed circuit board. Plug in/out connections enable rapid installation and maintenance supporting hot-swap capability.
