TX2040

The TX2040 Transmitter

Unique infrared interface

The new TX2040 transmitter features Audio’s unique infrared interface, which allows the transmitter to be controlled remotely. The sound professional can use the Control-X device to switch the transmitter On/Off, even when it is worn beneath clothing – great for film and drama. The device displays the frequency on which the TX2040 is operating, enabling the sound engineer to identify the particular transmitter, even when it can’t be seen. The remote control features can also be operated by the SwitchiR control system, or from a Palm PDA, using free downloadable Palm AudiR software.

Compact design

The absence of mechanical switches on the TX2040 reduces wear, and ensures a greater degree of water proofing, for improved durability and reliability. The battery compartment is integrated into the transmitter case, to prevent the battery coming a drift in use, and has been designed to accommodate larger 9V batteries. The TX2040 will often last for a full day without the need to replace the batteries.

32 pre-programmed frequencies

The unit has 32 pre-programmed frequencies, with a switching bandwidth of up to 24MHz, which is the equivalent of three European TV channels, or four US channels. Despite its host of new features, the transmitter remains the same size as its predecessor the TX2020, and is fully backward compatible with earlier Audio systems. As with all our products, RF and audio performance are excellent.

Designed for comfort

The TX2040 is compact, sleek and stylish, with rounded edges to make it more comfortable for the artist to wear.
