Relay Xo™ FAQ

If you don't see the question you had in mind here, feel free to enter in the form provided along with your email address so we may send the reply directly to you. Thank's for your participation!

Can I use the Relay Xo to switch any balanced or unbalanced signal?

Yes – so long as it is not phantom powered.

Can I use the Relay Xo as a mute for coughing?

Absolutely! Simply disregard the second output and it will quietly mute the signal when activated to mute the mic on a podium, court of law, broadcast station or conference center.

Can I permanently mount the Relay Xo into a rack?

Yes. The J-Clamp may be used to do so. It is equipped with screw-down flanges for this purpose.

Can I switch the Relay Xo using a midi switcher?

Yes. Most midi switchers are equipped with a contact closure that can be used for this purpose.

Is the Relay Xo able to switch digital signals like AES/EBU without a glitch?

This may or may not work for several reasons: first - the Relay's characteristic impedance is not 110 ohms and second – it is completely analog. This may cut the handshaking between the source and destination which could cause a hiccup in the transmission. Testing is suggested.

Can the Relay Xo be used backward as a two input, one output switcher?

Yes, but this will require turn-around connectors.
