Rane Commercial RAD26 Single Room Remote Audio Device Interface


Rane Commercial RAD26

Key Features:
  • RAD with Audio and Logic I/O
  • On-Board 2-Channel 4W Amplifier
  • Local Audio Line Input
  • Two Euroblock Inputs (Mic/Line/Line+)

The RANE Electronics RAD26 is a HAL compatible remote audio device that offers audio and logic I/O with a 2-channel 4W amplifier well suited for presentation sources, volume, projector and screen control, and meeting rooms with A/V teleconferencing and speakers as well as spas with background music, local music input, stereo ceiling speakers, and hotel or cruise ship room TV and local input sound systems.

The RAD26 features a color LCD display and rotary encoders to control a variety of sources and destinations. The dual universal audio I/O interface includes line-level input jacks for local needs, a headphone output, and a dual 4-watt amplifier. A single shielded cat 5e (or better) cable drop is all that's needed to connect it to a HAL compatible multiprocessor.

On the rear, there are 2 balanced Euroblock mic/line/line+ audio inputs with the mode set in Halogen software. The line+ inputs accept unbalanced left and right signals and sums them to mono. Additionally, 24V phantom power is available for condenser mics. For end users, there is a 3.5mm Aux input on the underside of the front, accepting the output of a smartphone, laptop, or other consumer device.

Three logic closure inputs and three active-low outputs add to the control capabilities. The built-in amplifier powers a small stereo pair of room speakers, or it can be switched in software to power a single 8W speaker. The RAD26 fits with most decor in a matte white metal box. A programmable ambient light sensor automatically dims the display and status LEDs in darkened rooms. The Rane RAD26 includes a mounting bracket with an installation tool.
