The Schoeps PHS 48 can be plugged into a microphone input or cable that carries 48-Volt phantom power, to verify that sufficient current is available to power a Schoeps microphone.
According to the standards, a 48 V phantom powered microphone may draw a current of up to 10 mA per channel. Schoeps CMC 5, CMC 6 and CCM microphones actually need only 4 mA (ca. 5 mA if Active Accessories are used), so the PHS 48 tests for approximately this amount of available current at the required voltage level.
