Introduction

You asked for it, we listened, and here it is! The iplus from W2IHY.

How many times have you wanted to send your rack or W2IHY audio to more than just one radio with the ease of simply turning a big switch in front of you?

You know the hassles involved. You must disconnect your rack’s output to the radio that you normally use, then re-connect it to a different radio. And if you are fortunate, the input connector on the other radio will be the same. More often than not, the other radio will use a different connector.

If you are not so fortunate, then a new cable will have to be built and then plugged in every time you switch radios. Then you have to plug in the amplifier control line from the new radio to your amplifier. Then you have to connect a PTT line to the radio. Then you have to plug in your speaker(s) to the new radio. The you have to reset all of your levels… What a hassle.

NOW THERE IS AN EASIER WAY!

If you hate the scenario above, then the iplus was designed just for you!

No more plugging and unplugging cables to send your rack audio to more than one radio.

Once you connect your cables from the iplus to your existing radios (up to 3) and connect the PTT, amplifier and speaker cables, you’re done.

Imagine simply turning a switch to send your rack audio to one of three radios, and at the same time having the PTT, amplifier and speaker connections all ready to go. This is a no brainer for the rack audio enthusiast who just wants to switch and play. Connect it all up once and then forget it.

The iplus has extensive RFI and ground loop protection built in for a clean, no hum experience.

The iplus is built with a rugged steel chassis and very easy to use front-panel controls with clearly marked rear-panel connections.

The iplus and all cables are compatible with your existing EQplus8 or Dual Band Equalizer and iBox. (Prewired cable assemblies available – optional)

The iplus has very versatile audio inputs; Choose between Balanced XLR, Balanced ¼” TRS, Unbalanced ¼” TS, or 5-Pin DIN for a direct connection from your existing W2IHY products. We have thought of everything!
