Lectrosonics is introducing user-assembled kits as a cost-saving alternative to its pre-assembled SRb Series dual-channel receivers. The kits reduce the cost vs. finished products by approximately 50%. Users can sort, correctly identify, place, and solder over 1,100 tiny parts.
The SR Series Digital Hybrid Wireless diversity receivers offer two independent channels and fit into the standard video camera slots found on professional cameras. The two audio channels can feed separate inputs or can be mixed internally to feed a single input. The 5P variant is equipped with an external audio output for cameras that only have one audio input in the slot: both audio channels can be connected with an external cable.
Included in the kits are all the mechanical housing components such as metal parts, membrane keypad, screws, RF shields, nuts and washers, gaskets, and electronic components such as blank circuit boards, capacitors, resistors, transistors, diodes, microprocessors, DSPs, graphic LCD, and connectors. Two antennas in the correct frequency block are also in the kit. To save time, the electronic components for the RF circuit board and the Audio circuit board are carefully separated into two labeled bags. A detailed assembly instruction manual is also included in printed form and on a USB memory stick, along with an alcohol wipe and two yards of fine-gauge, lead-free solder.
