The HAL4 is a stand-alone 2X2 Halogen replacement for the popular DragNet RPM2 with four-times the processing power, improved digital remote and Web Control options, simplified linking and improved preset recall capability. It solves just about every signal processing problem found in one or two rooms.
The HAL4 is a 2-Input, 2-Output drag-and-drop DSP device for Halogen software. Inputs are Line / Line-Plus / Mic / Mic+48V capable. In addition to supporting balanced line and microphone inputs, this configuration allows a stereo pair connection to an input, converting to a single L+R mono signal. Standard balanced outputs are provided.
A single DR port provides support for preset recall, level control and select functions using a DR1, DR2 or DR3. If more logic ins and outs are needed for pots, switches or external indicators, a DR4 or DR5 may be added.
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 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.
Simply put, the HAL4 has a ton of DSP horsepower. Combine this with the flexibility of drag and drop system design and the HAL4 fits a variety of applications, simple or complex. Such as:
It's easy to make a small restaurant or office system with two zones with presets for source selection. Replace one of the line sources with a paging mic and now you have a simple two-zone music/paging system. Halogen makes it easy to set up emergency paging, adjust the ducking, eliminate feedback, and configure a backlit DR remote or Web Controls so anyone can easily control the system from a tablet or smartphone.
Common device use includes combinations of: Graphic and Parametric EQ • Feedback Suppression • Ambient Noise Compensation • AGC- Compression- Limiting • Delay • Paging • Mixing • 2-Zone remote volume control • Browser control from tablet or smart phone.
