Gain and filter switch settings
There are two flush-mounted switches for selecting various combinations of gain and filtering, i.e.:
Gain switch settings:
- 0 dB - for normal microphone signals.
- +20 dB - for boosting weak microphone signals.
Filter switch settings:
- A-Weighting - as required in standard measurements.Linear - to let the microphone signal passunfiltered.
- High-pass - to cut off unwanted low frequencies.
Its small ceramic thick-film substrate has a very high input impedance, and is shielded by a guard ring to minimise the influence of stray capacitance and microphonic interference.
The Type 26CF can be used with all G.R.A.S. prepolarized microphones, namely:
- ½-inch microphones:Types 40AE, 40AD and 40AQ
- ¼-inch microphones:Types 40BE and 40BD, using the optional½-inch to ¼-inch adaptor RA0019
It has an integrated BNC output connector.
The casing is made of stainless steel for maximumstrength and durability.
1 CCP stands for “Constant Current Power” and describesG.R.A.S. power supplies that maintain a constant level ofcurrent for driving IEPE transducers like this preamplifierwhich can be used with prepolarized microphones such asTypes 40AD, 40AE, 40AO and 40AQ.
