CAD Switching Mic Base Model 40-116
The 40-116 utility microphone base is designed to accept the popular 800 or 900 series ASTATIC mini-gooseneck microphones as well as any other miniature gooseneck microphone with a three pin professional audio connector.
The 40-116 features a specially compounded energy absorbing "shock mount" pad to decouple the base from sources of unwanted mechanical resonance, i.e. podiums, lecterns, tables, etc. This unit features a push button which can be used as a "push-to-talk" or "push-to-mute" depending on the status of the mode switch on the underside of the base.
The circuit contains a highly reliable switch to operate a 55dB mute which will effectively kill audio output without causing a potentially damaging phantom power "thump" when used with electret type microphones.
The 40-116 is supplied with a rugged four conductor, two shielded seven foot cable terminated with a professional three pin male XLR type connector for balanced audio. The base is constructed of die cast zinc with a steel base plate.
The model 40-116 can be used in a wide variety of applications including:
