VERSATILE SETUP

PERFECT FOR STUDIO OR OFFICE

SoundTools is committed to the design and manufacture of professional grade audio equipment, whether it’s used on a festival stage, in a concert hall, or in your office building. With the SoundTools Wall CAT, we set out to create a superior XLR wall plate for sending and receiving audio and COM through shielded CAT cables. Compatible with analog, DMX, AES3 and intercom signals.


NO SOLDERING REQUIRED

Not all wall plates are created equally. Unlike other brands, our wall plates require no soldering to install. Every connection you need, including 4 Neutrik XLR connectors in front and 2 Amphenol RJ45 connections in back, come pre-installed and clearly labeled. Because of our commitment to consistent, high-quality audio and COM signals, WallCATs are designed to keep strong, stable connections. Our high-quality brushed aluminum and stainless steel mounting screws (included) are resistant to rust and most wear-and-tear.

SHIELDED CABLE
ALLOWS PHANTOM POWER

SoundTools Wall CATs require shielded (STP/FTP) Cat cable to function properly. They are compatible with 48-volt phantom power. Using several SoundTools WallCATs and our SuperCAT cable in your building installation will allow you to run four channels of clear audio and COM signals from one room to another or to multiple rooms at once. Combine with our CAT Box, CAT Rack, and/or CAT Tails for the ultimate audio-over-Cat5 experience.


Function

Attach your shielded CAT5 cables in the input or parallel RJ45s at the back of the WallCAT. Secure the WallCAT inside a compatible electrical junction box and install into the desired position. Attach your XLR cable ends to channels 1, 2, 3, or 4. Now you can run up to four lines of audio down a shielded CAT5 cable.

Pair with an additional CAT Rack, CAT Snake, CAT Rack, or WallCAT to send and receive four lines of balanced audio.


F.A.Q.

Do I need to use shielded CAT5 cable?

Yes. Each of the channels share a common ground. This is especially important with digital signals.

How far can I send a my mic lines?

For balanced analog we've achieved distances of over 600ft using our SuperCAT cable. The results will vary with other CAT5 brands. For digital signals we reccommend distances up to 330 ft as per AES/EBU standards.
