Lectrosonic SMWB & SMDWB Wideband Transmitters now available in 941 MHz Frequency Band

SMWB SMDWB press release

Lectrosonics has released two new models of their SMWB & SMDWB Miniature Wideband Transmitters covering the Part-74 license-only frequency range from 941.525 to 959.825 MHz.

Key features

  • Selectable output power to maximize operating range
  • Ultra-lightweight, corrosion resistant housing
  • Water resistant seals for use in damp environments
  • LCD interface with lockout option
  • Programmable compatibility modes for use with a wide variety of different receivers
  • Servo Bias input circuitry
  • IR (infrared) port for fast setup
  • Update firmware in the field via Micro SD card reader
  • Alternate use as recorder on internal microSDHC memory card

RF power for these models is selectable at 100, 50, or 25 mW. They feature the standard TA5 connector with servo-bias mic input, as used on all previous SM Series units and all current TA5 beltpack units like the LT and LMb. Any lavaliere microphones wired for these other Lectrosonics transmitters will also work on these new models. Accessories for the existing SMWB/SMDWB series including pouches, belt clips, and battery eliminators are fully compatible with these new models.

The new SMWB/E07-941 and SMDWB/E07-941 transmitters are a natural extension to our product line covering the license-only 941 MHz frequency band

Karl Winkler, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Lectrosonics

The new units can be configured either as a transmitter or a recorder, with files stored on Micro SD card memory, allowing use as body worn recorders, recording up at 24-bits, 44.1 kHz.

The new transmitters feature the same large, backlit LCD found on the latest Lectrosonics transmitters, including the LT, HHa, LMb and DBu. The new models also include an IR port to allow for quick setup when using any IR equipped receiver such as the SRc-941 or Venue 2-941. This allows for easy integration with a larger wireless system using Lectrosonics Wireless Designer™ software for frequency management and system monitoring.

The transmitters offer hands-free setup and adjustment using audible tones. They can be put to sleep to conserve battery power during setup while buried inside costuming, then awakened for normal operation when the production begins.

Other features include input gain adjustment in 1 dB increments over a 44 dB range and adjustable low-frequency audio roll-off for 3 dB down points at 35, 50, 70, 100, 120 or 150 Hz to control subsonic and very low-frequency audio content.

Pricing & Availability

The SMWB/E07-941 has an MSRP of $2,120 and the SMDWB/E07 has an MSRP of $2,215. Both models are available now.
