Radial Engineering Shows New Catapult Mini Snake

The Radial Engineering Catapult Mini is the latest addition to the company’s modular Catapult snake system, providing users with four analog audio channels over a single shielded Cat 5 cable. The Catapult Mini TX and RX both feature a compact steel chassis with a hardwired fan-out to four XLR connectors, providing a simple and rugged solution for delivering balanced analog audio between any two destinations without signal loss or degradation.

The Radial Catapult system connects via Cat 5 Ethernet cable, making it ideally suited to a wide range of applications. As many buildings are already pre-wired for Cat 5, the Catapult Mini can take advantage of this to easily transmit audio between distant rooms without the need to install or supply new cabling. This eliminates the need for bulky and expensive multi-channel audio cable and allows contractors to utilize installed network cable and easily connect from one room to another.

All of the Radial Catapult modules are compatible with each other, and each is sold individually, providing the option to mix and match as needed. The Catapult Mini TX and RX can be used together as a pair to create a compact four-channel audio snake, or they can be matched with other Catapult modules that include splitting capabilities or transformer isolation - allowing you to select whichever combination best suits a particular application.
