The ProCo SAS3 Sports Announcer’s Switch is a simple, rugged, desktop push-to-talk microphone switch designed specifically for sporting event announcers. This  microphone signal actuating device offers clean reliable performance with any balanced or floating low-impedance (150 ohm nominal) microphone or signal source.  SAS3 is designed for use with either condenser-type or dynamic microphones.    The SAS3 is ideally suited for use in sports event announcing applications but is equally suitable for any application where a desktop push-to-talk  device is required.  The SAS3 is backed by ProCo’s "2-Year Limited"  warranty.

To pass the microphone signal to the sound system,  the user simply depresses and holds down the push-to-talk button on the SAS3.  The SAS3 is a momentary press-to-talk switch, so the switch will need to remain depressed for as long as the user requires the signal to be “live”.  Releasing the switch will prevent the signal from continuing to the sound system.  

Connections between the SAS3 and the the sound system are made with standard microphone cables. The user’s microphone is connected to the SAS3 through the female microphone adapter that is incorporated into the end of the 6-inch gooseneck mounted on the top panel of the device.  A microphone cable is integrated in the  6-inch black chrome gooseneck.  An additional Mic Input is provided via a Female XLR-type connector located on the back panel.  Both gooseneck-mounted and rear panel Mic Inputs are wired in parallel and are controlled by the push-to-talk switch.  A Male XLR-type connector is provided for Mic Output.  

The SAS3 enclosure is formed of a 16-gauge steel top and a rugged 11-gauge, black epoxy painted steel base.  Steel provides excellent magnetic shielding from 60Hz AC hum fields. All control and connector function graphics are identified on a textured polycarbonate overlay.  The enclosure is with (4) non-conductive, anti-skid feet on the base of the unit.  Top-quality connectors and switches provide trouble-free service even in abusive situations such as remote broadcast and recording operations.
