FAQ

  • Can I power a HME 26 headset from a body pack transmitter?

    The HME 26 capsule wants to see between 8 and 15 V DC to operate. The SK 100 body pack can supply 10 V. To power the HME 26 from an SK 100 body pack the cable of the HME 26 must be terminated in the standard 3.5 mm connection (ie: tip is hot and the ring and sleeve are tied together and grounded).

    NOTE: You cannot use a standard CM1 mic cable plugged into a HME 26 headset with the MZA 900 P (48v phantom power adaptor) as it does not function correctly because the MZA 900P needs to get 48v Phantom Power to function.
