The Optogate PB-06 is our microphone gate for fixed installations, i.e. Tables, Lecterns and Podiums. This unit is ideal for Churches and Houses of Worship.

The New Optogate PB-06 is a Brand New upgraded version of the old well known model for conferences, recording studios, talk-backs, houses of worship podiums / lecterns and any table top applications. The combination of the optical gate along with a push button, xlr cables and 4 different modes allow this to be the most versatile PB-06 ever!

The PB-06 is equipped with an infrared sensor and senses if someone is in front of the microphone in order to switch on the microphone. The microphone will be switched off automatically if no one is in front of it. The distance of activation can be adjusted between 2 inches and 3 feet with the help of the trim pot located on the top of the unit. It is powered by 48v phantom from your console.

Optogates are by far the best and easiest solution for the most common problems in live audio applications. It eliminates unwanted background noise of other instruments into unused, open microphones on stage. So, the clarity of the sound and the dynamics are increased due to less phase cancellation between other open mics and stage background noise. It also reduces the possibility of Feedback from unused open mics!
