The Telex RE90P 12" Condenser Cardioid Gooseneck Podium Microphone is a phantom-powered "back-electret" miniature condenser gooseneck microphone. The back-electret feature provides greater sensitivity, wider frequency response, and superior immunity from handling noise than a diaphragm-electret microphone. The RE90P is highly-shielded from RFI/GSM interference, and is mechanically designed for quick, easy mounting to a lectern, pulpit or podium equipped with a bulkhead female XLR-type 3-pin receptacle. The RE90P is designed for sound reinforcement applications. The frequency response is tailored for full-range sound reproduction with natural sound pick-up optimized for close-up use. The small diameter gooseneck has two supple joints and a rigid center tube. The rigid tube prevents unsightly twisting of the gooseneck but permits the user to exactly position the microphone. The electronics housing has a 3/4" diameter base terminated with an XLR-type 3-pin connector which allows the microphone to be plugged directly into an existing panel-mount XLR-type receptacle. The electronics' output circuit utilizes a transformerless balanced construction with a low-output impedance, which is typically 200 ohms. This permits very long cable runs without degrading the microphone performance. The RE90P is designed to be phantom powered with a wide voltage range, 9-52 V dc (DIN Standard 45 596).
