360 - Tape Recording Electronics

THIS PRODUCT IS NO LONGER IN PRODUCTION

The Inovonics 360 is a completely self-contained and highly reliable Tape Electronics for upgrading single channel recorders in Radio Broadcast, Institutional and similar demanding applications.

Features


  • Interfaces directly with Ampex 300, 350 & 351 tape transports.

  • Accommodates a wide variety of original equipment and replacement heads.

  • Solid state monitor and equalization switching eliminates contact noise and permits remote control of both these functions.

  • Fully regulated internal power supply assures stable operation despite wide variations in line voltage.

  • Plug-in circuit cards combine advantages of both IC and discrete circuitry for unexcelled performance and trouble-free operation.
