Manley ELOP Stereo Electro-Optical Limiter
Manley ELOPElectro-Optical Limiter makes your life easy - in signature Manley-quality fashion. Employing a similar principle as the older Teletronix and Urei LA-2A, LA-3, and LA-4 units, the ELOP shines a Light Emitting Dioide onto a Light Dependent Resistor, but features modern VACTROL technology, so you get sample-to-sample tracking and no high-frequency loss when deep limiting, which are problems associated with other opto-type limiters. Featuring Manley's premium tube design and an extremely quick attack, you can use the ELOP in dual-mono or stereo.

Noise Floor (Gain set to minimum): -80 dB Wideband
Signal to Noise Ratio: 126 dB typical
Maximum gain: 15 dB
Power consumption: 40 watts
Operating mains voltage: Units are purpose built for original destination country's mains voltage: 100V, 120V, or 220-240VAC as indicated on the serial number badge. Power transformer must be replaced in order to change mains operating voltage. 120VAC units may NOT be rewired to put the primaries of the power transformer in series for 220-240V operation or a large radiated field of hum will develop. If changing locations/voltages, the power transformer must be replaced with the dedicated one for the voltage at which it will operate.
Mains Voltage Frequency: 50~ 60Hz
Dimensions: 19" x 3 1/2" x 10" (occupies 2u)
Shipping weight: 16 lbs.
