200 - Average and Peak Responding Limiter

THIS PRODUCT IS NO LONGER IN PRODUCTION

The Inovonics 200 is a dual function unit which incorporates both fast-acting peak limiting and average-responding automatic gain control circuits for studio recording, mastering and broadcast.

Features


  • Fully Calibrated - Detented controls guarantee repeatability and are quickly and easily set for any desired limiting function.

  • Simple Operation - Even inexperienced personnel obtain effective results with "straight-up-and-down" control settings.

  • Very Low Distortion - even at low frequencies, assured by open-loop gain control and unique ripple-cancelling circuits.

  • Instant Display of limiting action by peak-responding indicators. Optional remote-mounting meter may be located at console.

Specifications


Frequency Response

±0.5 dB, 20Hz-20kHz

Signal-to-Noise Ratio

75dB, 20Hz - 20kHz referred to +4dBm line level

Distortion

  • (50Hz - 200Hz) NORM Release <0.5% /FAST Release <0.8% /AVG Level Limiter<0.4%

  • (200Hz - 20kHz)NORM Release <0.3% /FAST Release <0.4% /AVG Level Limiter <0.3%

  • (Limiters OFF) 0.15% - 20Hz-20kHz at +23dBm

Peak Limiter Timing

  • NORM Attack - <1us/dB-limiting

  • DELAYED Attack - 2ms fixed delay +0.5ms/dB-limiting

  • NORM Release - approx. 30ms/dB-limiting

  • FAST Release - approx. 6ms/dB-limiting

  • PEAK HOLD Attack - <10us/dB-limiting

  • PEAK HOLD Release (drift) - <0.1dB/minute

Average Level Limiter Timing

  • NORM ATTACK and RELEASE - approx. 50ms/dB-limiting

  • SLOW A.G.C. - Operates in conjunction with NORM mode and requires approx. 10 seconds for complete gain reduction or restoration.

Stereo Coupling

Two or more units may be interconnected for ganged gain reduction.

Input
