Cardioid Condenser Boundary Microphone

  • Cardioid condenser boundary microphone with local or remote switching
  • Designed for surface-mount applications such as high-quality sound reinforcement, conferencing, distance learning and other demanding sound pickup situations
  • The capacitive touch switch can be set to any of three operating modes:“touch-on/touch-off”, “touch-to-talk” and “touch-to-mute”
  • Integral, phantom-powered, two-state RGB LED indicator (controlled locally or remotely) displays on/off status of microphone
  • External contact closure capability permits control of remote devices from microphone switch
  • PivotPoint™ rotating output connector allows cable to exit from either the rear or the bottom of the microphone
  • Small-diameter UniPoint™ capsule near boundary eliminates phase distortion and delivers clear, high-output performance
  • UniGuard™ RFI-shielding technology offers outstanding rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI)
  • Heavy die-cast case and non-slip silicone foam bottom pads minimize coupling of surface vibration to the microphone
  • Low-profile design with low-reflectance black finish for minimum visibility
  • Threaded inserts on bottom of microphone allow it to be mounted with screws for increased security

  • U891RCb Specifications
