Focusrite RedNet D16R MkII


Overview

The Focusrite RedNet D16R MkII is a 1U, 19-inch rack-mountable interface that features 16 channels of AES3 connectivity to and from a Dante audio network. Perfect for bridging between digital consoles, power amplifiers or any other AES3 equipped audio equipment and a Dante network.

 

Connectors

The Focusrite RedNet D16R MkII features dual Ethernet connectors (primary and secondary) on the rear panel, allowing for maximum network reliability with the seamless switchover to a standby network in the unlikely event of a network failure. These ports may also be used to daisy-chain additional units when operating in Switched mode.

The redundant power supplies (PSU A and B) feature separate input sockets on the rear panel that allow one supply to be connected to an uninterruptable source. Additionally, each PSU’s status can be monitored remotely over the network or from the D16R MkII’s front panel.

The RedNet D16R MkII provides independent level trim on each on each input and output channel, plus a Sample Rate Converter (SRC) on each input pair allows for instant operation with any AES3 source irrespective of the sample rate of clocking of the Dante audio network.

The audio interface of the RedNet D16R MkII is provided by two standard 8-channel (AES59) combined digital I/O DB25 connections and a pair of XLR3 connectors. The XLR3 input replaces input channels 1 and 2 on the DB25 connector, while the XLR3 output replicates DB25 output channels 1 and 2. S/PDIF input and outputs are provided on the RCA connectors, ideal for those looking to connect CD players or solid-state recorders. The input replaces channels 3 and 4 in the DB25 connector while the output can then be assigned to replicate any adjacent odd/even pair.  

 

Word Clock & LEDs

Word Clock I/O on the BNC connectors allows for synchronisation of the Dante network to house clock or syncing external equipment to the Dante network. While DARS reference can also be accepted via the XLR3 input connector. Lastly, the RedNet D16R MkII’s front panel contains a set of LEDs to confirm the network status, sample rate, clock sources and signal presence on both input and output.

Front Panel Indicators

  • PSU A: Green LED. Illuminates when an AC input is applied and all DC outputs are present
  • PSU B: Green LED. Illuminates when an AC input is applied and all DC outputs are present
  • Primary Network: Green LED. Indicates that a network connection is present on primary port when in redundant mode. When in Switched mode, a valid network connection at either Primary or Secondary network port will cause this LED to illuminate
  • Secondary Network: Green LED. Indicates that a network connection is present on secondary port when in redundant mode. Not used in switched mode Sync Locked Green LED. When unit is network slave, shows valid network lock. When network master shows unit is locked to indicated clock source. Flashing indicates invalid external clock present and unit has reverted to internal clock
