A HAL2 Multiprocessor supports 18 in x 18 out audio, with 8 in x 8 out on balanced analog connections, another 8 in x 8 out through RADs, and 2 in x 2 out through AES3 digital audio. The HAL2 applies the same versatile Halogen software interface to venues that don’t need extensive expansion found in the HAL1x. It includes the same abilities to quickly design room combinations, paging systems, distributed music, and automixers with Rane’s “no virtual wiring needed” approach, but in a smaller I/O configuration to meet smaller budgets.
A Remote Audio Device (RAD) provides analog to digital conversion at the wall.
Three Digital Remotes simplify end user control and eliminate installer brain fatigue. Use Digital Remotes for volume control, preset recall, source selection, or resetting or toggling system states. All offer customizable backlit LCD screens for intuitive end user labeling. Home run shielded CAT 5e (or better) connections to a HAL or EXP eliminate addressing, external power, and the need to test the cables. Each is available in white, ivory or black, and fit in standard electrical boxes.
The DR4 Logic I/O Expander adds more logic to any HAL for external switches and pots:
The DR5 Switch Controller adds more logic to any HAL, accepting external switches and driving LEDs on a room combine panel.
The DR6 is a fully customizable touchscreen remote for the HAL family. It supports multiple pages or tabs and any set of levels, toggles, selectors and/or commands on the 7-inch color LCD display.
The maximum length for CAT 5e cable between ethernet devices is 100 meters.
Shielded CAT 5e between a HAL or EXP and a RAD (carrying 4 channels of digital audio) can run up to 150 meters.
Shielded CAT 5e between a HAL or EXP and a DR (carrying control information) can run up to 300 meters.
It is possible to extend these lengths by increasing distance between the HAL and Expanders. Up to 32 Expanders can daisy-chain from a single HAL, and each can be up to 100 meters apart. For greater distance, off-the shelf Gbit Ethernet media converters are supported. Multimode fiber can run up to 2 kilometers, and singlemode fiber can run up to 12 kilometers.
