The VM-40 (omnidirectional) and VM-41 (cardioid) are both for operation on 48-volt MIPOW systems. Ruggedly constructed in a small physical size, the VM Series features a unique four-position ring switch to permit selection of either full-range frequency response or gentle roll-off from 1 kHz with 12 dB down at 50 Hz. A 10-dB pad is also incorporated for both full range and roll-off positions.
