The New MDT-4000 Turntable

There’s a new turntable in town!

We’re excited to launch the Portland Tool and Die MDT-4000 Turntable, exclusively available from Listen. Designed specifically for audio measurements, it packs a host of usability and safety features, along with high precision and low maintenance in a compact and lightweight package. Features include:

High Precision: The MDT-4000 offers a resolution of 0.1°, one of the most accurate on the market.

Low maintenance: A maintenance-free worm drive requires no lubrication, making this turntable maintenance-free, an advantage when it is remotely located, for example in an anechoic chamber

Easy Set-Up and Operation: The turntable has a built in level, along with 4 adjustable feet, making it quick to perfectly level and align equipment. Clearly visible degree markings provide quick visual confirmation of position and make it easy to align accessories with the turntable. Mounting holes at 3”, 9” and 15” diameter provide a variety of mounting options, and a center cable pass-through prevents tangling. The turntable retains position memory across power cycles, so the display remains synchronized with the actual position, even when the turntable is turned off.

Flexible control options: 4 control options offer ultimate flexibility:

  • USB – easy control for short distances
  • RS232 for longer distances  and backwards compatibility with LT360
  • RestAPI provides long distance communication via LAN, enabling control via a webpage using a laptop or smartphone and enabling custom control applications to be written
  • Full control from within SoundCheck (naturally!)

Packed with safety features: With emergency stop buttons on the front panel and in the software, plus an optional remote button for when the turntable is not within reach, your valuable products and instrumentation are protected. An automatic stall detection mechanism identifies if an obstruction is preventing the turntable from reaching its target position and both warns the user and stops the drive to prevent damage to equipment.

Quiet operation: Silent at rest, and low-noise when rotating, it is ideal for audio applications. Variable torque enables slower rotation speeds to be used for quieter operation when measuring during rotation.

Right-sized: Supports weights of up to 100kg in either compression or inverted orientation, making it suitable for the majority of audio applications. Weighing in at just 12kg, it is easy for one person to move around the laboratory.

Competitively priced: The MDT-4000 is competitively priced with other turntables, and considerably less expensive than others offering the same advanced functionality.
