Catapult Specifications™

The Catapult TX4 and RX4 are four-channel audio snakes that allow you to send analog and AES digital audio signals over standard Cat 5 shielded twisted pair cable. This allows for the use of existing Cat 5 or Cat 6 cable infrastructure to connect audio signals from one part of a building to another, or to run sub-snakes over long distances with inexpensive and lightweight cable. The TX4 has four XLR-F inputs and four XLR-M outputs, while the RX4 has two sets of four XLR-M outputs. Both units feature an RJ45 type Ethercon input and thru-put, and include ground lifts to help eliminate buzz and hum caused by ground loops. Their rugged design, exceptionally flat frequency response, and low noise make the TX4 and RX4 excellent options for transmitting analog or AES audio in critical situations.

The Catapult TX4L and RX4L are four-channel line level splitters and isolators that allow you to split four audio channels and transmit them over a single standard cat5 shielded twisted pair cable. This allows you to split line level signals between three different destinations, either on stage or using a buildings existing Cat 5 or Cat 6 cabling to route the signal. Each unit features line level isolation transformers which help to eliminate buzz and hum caused by ground loops, saving hours of troubleshooting. The TX4L has four XLR-F inputs and four isolated XLR-M outputs, while the RX4L has four direct XLR-M outputs and four isolated XLR-M outputs. Both units feature RJ45 type Ethercon connections with ground lift switches.

The Catapult TX4M and RX4M are four-channel mic level splitters and isolators that allow you to split four mic feeds and transmit them over a single standard cat5 shielded twisted pair cable. This allows you to split mics to three different locations; such as front-of-house, monitors, and a recording device. Mic level isolation transformers in both units keep each destination isolated from the others, eliminating problems that arise from ground loops such as buzz and hum. The TX4M has four XLR-F inputs and four isolated XLR-M outputs, while the RX4M has four direct XLR-M outputs and four isolated XLR-M outputs. Both units feature RJ45 type Ethercon connections with ground lift switches. Phantom power can be provided to the mics via the direct outputs, so long as a shielded Cat 5 cable is used.
