Extron Ships Two Channel Balanced and Unbalanced Audio Converter

extron-buc202-lg-0514Extron’s BUC 202 is now shipping. The two-channel audio converter and audio line driver features two balanced or unbalanced inputs and outputs, both on captive screw connectors. The BUC 202 provides two independent channels of signal matching between unbalanced and balanced audio equipment. Two rotary switches provide trim adjustment from -21 to +21 dB in clearly-labeled 3 dB steps. In addition to serving as an interface from consumer products to professional AV systems, the BUC 202 is what Extron says is a high-quality line driver for sending and receiving audio signals up to 1,000 feet (300 meters). The 1U, quarter rack width enclosure, together with the included patented ZipClip 200 mounting bracket, allows integrators to install the BUC 202 in locations such as on a rack rail, beneath a table or within a lectern.

The BUC 202 is ideal for typical applications where a laptop is connected at the lectern and the audio needs to reach a remote equipment rack. The BUC 202 can be easily hidden by mounting the ZipClip 200 to any surface inside the lectern, while the unique form factor of the audio converter allows installers to snap it securely onto the mount. Detented level controls on the BUC 202 enable precise source input matching and gain structure.
