CTP DIO88 Analogue to Dante Converter
The CTP DIO88 Analogue to Dante Converter is an inexpensive way to get your analogue signals into and out of the Dante network. The unit has eight XLR inputs and eight XLR outputs.
It includes a secondary port for Dante Redundancy or a switch output. Both ports include network activity LEDs.
The DIO88 should be used in conjunction with Dante Controller software available from https://www.audinate.com/products/software/dante-controller . As supplied the DIO88 will appear in Dante Controller as DIO88-nnn. The inputs are labeled ‘Input 1” to ‘Input 8’, Outputs are labeled ‘Output 1’ to ‘Output 8’.
Connect the primary RJ45 to your router. If redundant operation is required connect the secondary RJ45 to the redundant network router. Alternatively the secondary RJ45 may be used as a router output for forwarding on to additional Dante equipment. This feature may be configured in Dante Controller.
When the unit is powered and after successful network connection the LEDs on the RJ45 connectors will illuminate. The right LED will be amber if you have a gigabit connection or green if operating at 100 Mbps. The left LED will blink green to show activity on the port or will be off if no link has been established.
It takes the unit some 10 seconds from application of power to be ready to operate.
The line level analogue inputs and outputs are electronically balanced and the unit is set for operation at a level of +18dBu = 0dBFS. There are no necessary adjustments.
The DIO88 is able to operate at sample rates of 44.1 and 48kHz.
