Overview

Overview

The Sound Devices SL-6 SuperSlot Powering and Wireless System offers powering and audio interconnection for standard slot-in receivers and additional control and monitoring when used with SuperSlot-compatible receivers. The SL-6 easily attaches directly to the top panel of the optional 688 12-Input Field Mixer and also offers antenna signal distribution to further declutter your sound engineer's bag. 

The SL-6 system simplifies interconnection between the optional 688 Field Mixer and multiple channels of wireless by accepting (3) dual-channel slot-in receivers. It provides a total of (6) separate audio feeds. With its NP1 battery slot, USB charging port, (2) 12 V isolated outputs, and two non-isolated direct battery outputs, the SL-6 is a great powering hub for peripheral devices. It also distributes RF from external anennas to the receivers which creates a more efficient, compact configuration.

Powering

The SL-6 unifies powering options for the 688, wireless receivers, and peripherals devices. The SL-6 operates from a standard NP-1 (Lithium Ion or NiMH) rechargeable battery or from an external 10 to 18-Volt source via a 4-pin Hirose connector. There are (2) 12-Volt isolated, and (2) non-isolated outputs, each capable of delivering up to 0.5-Amp for powering other peripheral equipment. These power outputs are normally on, but may be switched off via a power selection menu. A 5-Volt USB charging port with a 2-Amp capacity is also included, making it easy to keep a smartphone, tablet, or other USB-powered devices charged.

SuperSlot

Regarded as the industry's first non-proprietary, open wireless control and interfacing standard, SuperSlot™, developed by Sound Devices, is the result of its collaboration with a number of leading wireless manufacturers including Lectrosonics, Wisycom, Sennheiser, and Audio Ltd. The standard allows for all powering and audio interconnection, plus control and monitoring between SuperSlot-compatible mixers and receivers. When used with SuperSlot-compatible receivers, the SL-6 enables RF spectrum scanning and frequency assignment directly from the 688's LCD.

Features:

  • Accepts (3) dual-channel slot-in wireless receivers for a total of (6) channels.
  • Compatible with existing slot-in and new SuperSlot wireless receivers.
  • Ability to set SuperSlot-compatible receiver frequency and power on/off from the 688.
  • Ability to monitor SuperSlot-compatible receiver battery, audio and RF levels from the 688.
  • Accepts analog or digital audio depending on wireless receiver.
  • Built-in antenna signal distribution
  • NP-1 battery slot for powering 688, receivers and external peripherals.

Special Features

General Notes:
Powering with the SL-6 - The SL-6 features two power inputs: NP-1 battery and external DC. The SL-6, its attached receivers, the 688 (and CL-6, if connected), and any devices pow- ered from the SL-6 DC outputs require one of these power sources to operate.
PowerSafe - 10 second power reserve to SL-6, 688 (and CL-6 if connected), and attached peripherals.
Receiver Compatibility - Lectrosonics SRB Camera Slot Dual UHF Receiver (with audio board from Lectrosonics), Lectrosonics SRC Dual-Channel Slot-Mount Receiver, Sennheiser EK 6042 2-Channel Camera Receiver
Scanning for Radio Frequencies (RF) - When the SL-6 is tted with SuperSlot-compatible receivers, an RF Scan feature is enabled. The system will scan the RF spectrum for RF signal activity. It will display which frequencies within the scanned range are free of RF interference.
SuperSlot Receivers - When the 688 is powered on, the SL-6 will power receivers automatically; attached SuperSlot receivers will boot up with their panel buttons locked, because SuperSlot receivers are con gured from the 688 user interface.
