SonaFlex Technical Tips: FlexPort Setup


FPM-X or FPM-B
     FlexPort Transmitter Rear Panel Connections and Settings

FlexPort RJ-45 Pinout
It is recommended that all FlexPort bus Cat 5 wiring be configured using the EIA-568B standard pinout.  Audio Authority cannot garantee correct operation using any other wiring configuration. 

FPM-B and FPM-X
  • FlexPort Bus In - Connects via Cat 5 to the FlexPort “Bus Out” of another FPM in daisy chain scenarios    
  • FlexPort Bus Out - Connects via Cat 5 to a SF-16M “FlexPort In” or in daisy chain configurations to the “Bus In” of an additional FPM
  • Input Gain - Increase or decrease input signal level prior to being sent to the SF‑16M
  • Assign Channel - The input source can be assigned as: Dual Mono (input is assigned to both FlexPort channels), Mono 1 (FlexPort bus channel 1) or Mono 2 (channel 2) for daisy chain applications
  • Input Mic/Line - Sets input gain as mic or line level
  • Mix On/Off - Allows two daisy chained FlexPort modules to mix together upon override (learn more about mix)
  • Override On/Off - Enables or Disables override button on the front panel of the FlexPort module
  • Momentary/Toggle - Sets the override button to respond either as a momentary or a toggle switch
  • Bus Termination On/Off - Turn on if the FPM is the last module in a daisy chain configuration
  • Phantom Power On/Off - Turn on for phantom powered microphones
FPM-U or FPM-D FPM-D and FPM-U
  • FlexPort Bus In - Connects via Cat 5 to the FlexPort “Bus Out” of another FPM in daisy chain scenarios    
  • FlexPort Bus Out - Connects via Cat 5 to a SF-16M “FlexPort In” or in daisy chain configurations to the “Bus In” of an additional FPM (See  for audio settings when daisy chaining)
  • Input Gain - Used to increase or decrease input signal level prior to being sent to the SF-16M
  • Assign Channel Switch - The input source can be assigned as: Stereo (default), Mono 1 (FlexPort bus channel 1) or Mono 2 (channel 2)
  • Mix On/Off - Allows two daisy chained FlexPort modules to mix together upon override (learn more about mix)
  • Override On/Off - Enables or Disables override button on the front panel
  • Momentary/Toggle - Sets the override button to respond as a momentary or toggle switch
