OUR PART # RU-BNFP
The RU-BNF is an RDL Format-A sender/receiver that connects to a Dante-enabled network, providing all the features of an RDL RU-FN Format A to Network Interface and an RU-NFD Network to Format-A Interface/Distributor. The RU-BNF converts three Dante audio channels to RDL Format-A. Each network channel corresponds to Pair A, B or C of the Format-A outputs. The unit converts a fourth Dante audio channel to a balanced line-level AUX output.
The RU-BNF is powered from an external 24 Vdc power supply, available separately. The external supply powers the RU-BNF, Format-A senders connected to the Format-A input jack and Format-A receivers connected to all three Format-A outputs. The RU-BNFP is equipped for PoE which powers the RU-BNF, Format-A senders connected to the Format-A input, and Format-A receivers connected to the primary Format-A output jack. Audio is also distributed to the other two output jacks. Remote Format-A receivers connected to those other two output jacks are only powered from the RU-BNFP if an external 24 Vdc power supply is connected. If PoE power and an external 24 Vdc supply are both feeding an RU-BNFP, the unit will run from the external supply and will seamlessly switch over to PoE power upon loss of the external 24 V supply. The power feeding each Format-A RJ45 connector is separately protected by an automatically resetting fuse. A power LED is associated with each connector, facilitating identification of wiring faults.
