LEHLE P-SPLIT III

The LEHLE P-SPLIT III combines passive splitting with the highest possible signal fidelity.
Its applications range from splitting signals and eliminating hum, to balancing and reamplification along with any signal routing that requires a clean signal free from noise.
At its core is the high-end LEHLE TRANSFORMER HZ, which galvanically isolates the two outputs, eliminating any possibility of ground loops. The LEHLE TRANSFORMER HZ was specially designed for use with high-impedance signals but also splits low-impedance signals with uncompromising sound quality. The signal can be picked off either symmetrically or asymmetrically from the ISO output.
By using the phase inverter switch with gold-plated contacts you can flip the signal phase at the ISO output, preventing phase cancellation from impairing signal reproduction.
The classic application for the LEHLE P-SPLIT III is splitting an input signal to two outputs, enabling you to connect an instrument to two devices, which may, for example, be two amplifiers, or an amp and a mixer/recording unit (PC/DAW). Thanks to its ability to pick off the balanced signal on the ISO output, the LEHLE P-SPLIT III is also eminently suitable for use as a high-quality compact DI box for all types of signal.
Another useful application for the LEHLE P-SPLIT III is as a hum suppressor. Frequently background noise caused by ground loops occurs when two electronic devices are connected to each other. The LEHLE P-SPLIT III provides a simple, but extremely effective remedy when installed between the two units. Using the ISO output, the devices are galvanically isolated and background noise becomes a thing of the past.
You can even use the versatile LEHLE P-SPLIT III as a passive mono summing unit for a stereo signal by using the DIR output as second input.
And just in case you are looking for a power connection: the LEHLE P-SPLIT III performs all its functions without any need for a power supply.c.

Q: What is galvanic isolation?
A: Background noise, generated by ground loops, occurs again and again when two electronic devices are connected to each other, and the Lehle P-Split III provides a simple but extremely effective remedy when installed between the two units. The two devices are galvanically isolated when the `ISO´ output is used, eliminating this background noise.
The protective earth conductor and the ground connection of the audio signal create a loop which will pick up external interference generated, for example, by coils. Such interference will impair the signal. The Lehle LTHZ transformer included in the Lehle P-Split III galvanically isolates the ground connection. The hum loop is thus broken at this point.

Q: Does the galvanic isolation color my sound?
A: No, neither sound nor dynamics will be altered, the signal is passing the switcher without any loss in strength or frequency. We use our self-developed Lehle LTHZ transformers for this, the selection of high quality components guarantees a rich sound throughout the full frequency range.

Q: Can I use the P-Split III to eliminate the humming that my amps create when I use them simultaneously? It sometimes occurs when I use a stereo pedal to send a signal to both amps.
A: Yes, the 2 outputs are galvanically isolated, so there will be no ground loops.

Q: Can the P-Split III be used as DI box since it has 14“ sockets?
A: Yes, you get a balanced or unbalanced (mono-) signal from ISO and/or DIR output when using a stereo (TRS) cable.

Specs

Outputs

Inputs
Connect your instrument or the output from an effects unit or DAW here. The input signal is fed into this socket. The LEHLE P-SPLIT III operates entirely passively. The input signal remains connected to the ISO and DIR outputs at all times, with no semiconductors or any other active com- ponents in the signal path. Both balanced and unbalanced signals can be split, since the LEHLE TRANS- FORMER HZ is capable of handling both types.
DIR
Connect the input of an amplifier or ef- fects unit to be connected directly to the LEHLE P-SPLIT III input here. The input signal and its ground are pre- sent directly on the DIR socket. The signal LEHLE GmbH · Germany · www.lehle.com · support@lehle.com 10 from the DIR output is always the same which is fed into the input (1). If the input signal is unbalanced you will have an unbalanced direct signal at this socket. The same will occur with bal- anced signals.
ISO output
Connect your amp or the audio input of a DAW or a mixer here. The ISO output has an input signal which is isolated by means of the LEHLE TRANS- FORMER HZ. A balanced or an unbalanced signal is possible, irrespective of the type of signal fed from the input

Switches

Phase Inverter Switch
The phase of the input signal from the ISO output can be inverted if necessary. This switch can be used to invert the phase of the input signal from the ISO output socket by 180°. Splitting signals to two amps may some- times cause phase cancellations, result- ing, for most musicians, in a “thin” sound. Inverting the phase eliminates this prob- lem. Experiment to find out which position you prefer - as always, your individual taste is what counts!
Ground Lift Switch
Connect the grounds of the DIR and ISO output if necessary. Pressing this switch connects the ground conductors of the ISO and DIR outputs. Connecting the ground conductors of the DIR and ISO outputs can help in some situations, depending on the units con- nected and on their power supplies. Use the ground lift switch to find out for yourself the position in which noise is minimised. 5. ISO OUTPUT ISO Connect your amp or the audio input of a DAW or a mixer here. The ISO output has an input signal which is isolated by means of the LEHLE TRANS- FORMER HZ. A balanced or an unbalanced signal is possible, irrespective of the type of signal fed from the input.
Base And Fixing
If required, mount the P-SPLIT III to a pedalboard using the mounting kit. The P-SPLIT III can be mounted to a plate such as a pedalboard using the two holes in the bottom of the pedal. You can find the optional LEHLE Mount- ing Kit V3 (order number 100981) online at www.lehle-components.com. To mount, undo the four housing screws by using a 2.5 mm Allen Key and detach the cover. Then fix the device base to a base plate using the two screws, the washers and the spacers of the Mounting Kit. Attach the cover and tighten the four housing screws - done!
