Sennheiser ew 145 G3
Sennheiser Electronic Corporation announces the availability of the third generation of its evolution wireless system products in the U.S. The new 100, 300 and 500 G3 series rackmount wireless products—which incorporate a broad range of enhancements to the company’s most successful wireless series—are now shipping. The ew 300 IEM G3 wireless monitoring system, along with portable ENG sets for reporters and filmmakers, are scheduled to ship in July, according to the manufacturer.
New features in Sennheiser’s G3 wireless systems promise easy setup and ensure that P.A. companies, established and up-and-coming performers, musicians, presenters and reporting teams can get up and running quickly. Featuring rugged metal housings, all G3 series true-diversity receivers now have a switching bandwidth of 42 MHz with 1,680 tunable UHF frequencies for interference-free reception. All third-generation receivers offer a new one-touch synchronization feature, which enables G3 transmitters to communicate with G3 receivers via an infrared interface, simplifying setup dramatically.
The frequency management function makes more compatible frequencies available. The 500 Series has up to 32 presets on 20 channel banks, and six additional banks can be freely programmed in 25kHz steps. The 300 Series supports 20 channel banks with up to 24 compatible presets each, and six further channel banks are freely programmable in 25kHz steps. Finally, the 100 Series offers 20 channel banks with up to 12 presets each, with one further channel bank freely programmable in 25kHz steps.
On 500 and 300 Series receivers, a built-in Ethernet port supports interconnection with a PC running Sennheiser’s Wireless System Manager software. This provides monitoring and professional data management for multichannel systems. For larger systems, the standard output power in both 300 and 500 Series may be reduced from 30 mW to 10 mW in order to accommodate even more channels in a given frequency range.
A large, backlit dot matrix display provides access to enhanced menu options and information readouts. For faster access to the most important functions, the operating menu is now separated into a user level and an advanced level. The user level includes everyday functions such as frequency preset selection and audio levels, while the advanced level is reserved for more specialized programming, such as direct frequency selection, reset to factory settings and—for the 500 and 300 Series—synchronization and warning settings. All receivers additionally display transmitter battery strength.
