Frequency Diversity Mode

Axient® and Axient® Digital receivers feature Frequency Diversity mode that ensures uninterrupted audio in extreme RF environments.

To ensure at least one of the two frequencies is always clear, use a Spectrum Manager to take full advantage of interference management features.

Configuring Frequency Diversity Mode

If you have an Axient® or Axient®Digital receiver in your inventory, you can turn on Frequency Diversity mode in the Properties panel of that receiver.

For Axient

  1. Open the Properties panel for the receiver and select the Radio tab.
  2. In the Frequency Diversity drop-down, select one of the following options:
    • FD-Handhold - mixes the same audio signal from two carrier frequencies. For use with one AXT200.
    • FD-Bodypack - switches between two audio signals from two carrier frequencies. Requires two AXT100s.
    • Perform an IR sync with an AXT200 handheld transmitter with Frequency Diversity turned on or with two AXT100 bodypack transmitters.  

For Axient Digital
