What is the battery life of the PH-1A when used with the PCC-160? Does the PCC-160's sensitivity change when powered by the PH-1A, which supplies 18V phantom power?
Reply: Yes, you can connect the XLR connector of the PCC-160 to a transmitter input. (Actually, you'd plug the PCC-160 into a PH-1A phantom power supply, and connect the output of the PH-1A to the transmitter.) To do that, you need to make an adapter cable. It's a 1-conductor shielded cable with a female XLR on one end and a Switchcraft TA4F connector on the other end (or whatever connector your transmitter requires). For details, see the question in this knowledge base, in the Wireless Applications category, "How do I convert a CM-311A to wireless?"
The approximate battery life of the PH-1A is 131 hours when powering the PCC-160. The power to the PCC-160 mic capsule is regulated, so the PCC-160 has the same sensitivity with 18V phantom as it does with 48V phantom.
