Our 969-S Series features our innovative Programmable audio patchbays in a 1.5 or 2 RU size, with the added capability of programming switched grounds. Switched grounds can help eliminate hard-to-find ground loops, and because it provides a more stable signal-grounding structure, it’s ideal for systems with audio signals coming from numerous locations. Programmable patchbays such as the 969-S Series allow users to quickly and easily change the normals and grounding of individual circuits. Normals can be changed to full-normal, half-normal or non-normal. Grounding can be changed to switched, bussed, isolated or looped. Because it’s programmable, the 969-S Series can serve as the foundation for virtually any new, reconfigured or legacy installation. The end result is a patchbay that allows integrators and installers to quickly re-configure patching systems, accommodate customer change-orders, and speed service-calls.
