The ControlSpace EP40-D 4 input Dante endpoint is the ideal interface for adding mic/line inputs to a Dante system. The small form factor of the EP40-D allows it to be mounted almost anywhere, putting it close to audio sources and minimizing interference-prone analog wiring. The EP40-D features four balanced mic/line inputs, each with software selectable +48V phantom power and 8 gain levels. Front panel indicators show each channel’s gain and phantom power status for easy troubleshooting. The EP40-D has two network connections to allow Dante daisy chaining. Dante daisy-chaining further simplifies system infrastructure wiring by allowing multiple EP40-Ds to use a single CAT-5 home run connection to a network switch. Power can also be daisy chained. The EP40-D is powered by either an external +24VDC supply or any PoE network switch. Setup and control, including like mic/line input gain and phantom power, as well as Dante audio routing are all integrated in ControlSpace Designer.
