High-Performance Audio. Low-Voltage Installation. Together for the first time.
For AV installations demanding the utmost in audio quality, Meyer Sound offers an innovative solution: low-voltage, self- powered systems. This exclusive technology opens up a broad range of options for system designers, consultants, integrators and contractors.
As with conventional constant-voltage solutions, these new systems can be installed without conduit*, but the loudspeakers operate on DC power from a remote rack-mount power supply, so there is no need for AC mains service — requiring Class 1 electrical conduit — at each loudspeaker location. The amplifier and signal-processing circuits store DC power for peak demands, allowing the flexibility of lengthy cable runs (without conduits) while preserving the advantages of self-powered systems. Power and balanced audio can be carried on a single multi-conductor cable terminated by a 5-pin connector. As a result, installation times and costs are reduced compared to those of conventional constant-voltage systems.
However, the audio performance is beyond comparison. In any application — from foreground music in an intimate restaurant to auxiliary systems in large performance halls — the audible superiority of Meyer Sound self-powered technology will be noticed, and appreciated.
* In North America, electrical codes identify low voltage and low current electrical wiring methods as Class 2. Europe has also adopted a unified safety standard that identifies a low voltage and low current electrical wiring as Protective Extra Low Voltage (PELV).
Connectors and Wiring
Meyer Sound low-voltage loudspeakers offer several different connector options. All can be ordered with Phoenix 5-pin plug-in connectors for quick, secure connection in any installation. In addition, many of the loudspeakers – those likely to be used in theatrical and corporate AV applications – may be ordered with the rugged EN3 circular 5-pin connector.
The UPJ-1XP, UPJunior-XP, UPM-1XP, UPM-2XP, and UMS-1XP – those well suited to outdoor applications in theme parks, themed spectaculars and open-air hospitality installations – also offer the robust and environmentally sealed and locking ECO-M 7-pin connector.
The ECO-M connector is a right-angle locking, water-tight connector that was originally designed for industrial DC power applications, yet it is also ideally suited for low-voltage self-powered loudspeakers.
ECO-M connectors have cable outlets that make it possible to fit cables with diameters between 8mm and12mm (26-16 AWG). The ECO-M connector is offered with 7 pins (two that are not used) and have screw-clamp termination, enabling users to more easily terminate connectors in the field.
In addition to the low-profile design – less than 2.5" (61mm) from the user panel -- the right-angle connectors are keyed and allow the cable exit to be rotated in multiple different positions, allowing the cable exit to match the desired orientation.
One ECO-M cable-mount connector is shipped with each loudspeaker. Please specify this cable option when ordering.
