JK Audio RA2

RA2
Rack Panel

This small desktop unit easily converts to a rack-mount unit using the optional RA2 Rack Panel. The RA2 holds 2 Interchanges in a 1U rack space.

Listen-Always Design

The Listen-Always design allows both the phone hybrid / 4-wire connection and the mobile phone headset interface to monitor the intercom just like any other belt pack. Listen mode is a high impedance bridging tap on the intercom line. Talk mode is enabled via a front panel switch, either Off, On, or Auto. Auto follows the phone hybrid Auto-Answer mode.

Conference

The Innkeeper 2 or AutoHybrid IP2 conference feature allows two callers to share one intercom connection. Alternatively, the included cables allow Line 1 and Line 2 of the Innkeeper 2 or AutoHybrid IP2 to be connected to two separate Interchange™ units, allowing connection to separate intercom loops.
