The Lebel Audio PWL III is a compact, standalone Phantom 48V Universal Power Module which is powered by a single AA battery.
Unlike VdB L-48 compatible only with RF Audio Ltd transmitters, or the Wisycom PHA-48, which is powered via the microphone socket of the transmitter through the appropriate CAL-48 cable, Lebel PWL III, thanks to its integrated power supply, makes it possible to connect a static microphone to any microphone input of any transmitter, whether it is Audio Ltd in Lemo 6, Sennheiser, Wisycom or Lectrosonics in Lemo 3 or Sennheiser in mini jack (series 100 to 500).
But it can also be used to connect a static microphone to the microphone input of a DSLR camera such as the Canon 5D Mark III or to the mini jack input of a compact recorder such as the Sony PCM-D50.
With a standard alkaline battery, the maximum current is 5 mA, just sufficient for Schoeps CMC 6 and CMIT, but with a lithium battery it can be up to 10 mA enough to power any energy consuming static microphone like DPA 4017 .
It is not much larger than a square-shaped, non-cylindrical lipstick tube and has a tight, screw-on battery trap for the alkaline cell or battery, and a female XLR3 socket on the other side for connection to the microphone and, on one of its sides, a male TA3 socket for locking the audio signal to the transmitter or recorder (specific cable depending on use).
Contact us for specific compatibility of this Phantom 48V standalone power supply unit, depending on the microphone and the transmitter or recorder used.
