Thank you for showing your confidence in us by purchasing
the BEHRINGER AB200. This high-quality 2-channel A/B switch
is designed for musicians who use several amps and/or

your instrument. The LED always displays which element of
your system is currently being used.

the jacks from the connectors. This extends the
life of the battery.

. CONTROLS AND CONNECTIONS
Fig. 1.1: Rear view
Since the controls and connections of the two channels are
identical, this chapter only describes channel 1.
IN/OUT 1: this 1/4" TS jack serves as channel 1 input when
a source is plugged in (guitar, bass etc.) and as channel 1
output when an amp or an effect is plugged in.
A1 & B1: these 1/4" TS jacks serve as channel 1 outputs
when amps or effects are plugged in; they serve as channel
inputs when instruments are plugged in. Only one of
these connectors can be active at any one time.
LATCH/NON LATCH: this selector determines the channel
switch function: when set to LATCH, the switch is latching.
When set to NON LATCH, the signal will only be routed to or
from B1 as long as you hold the pedal depressed.
Fig. 2.1: One instrument / two amps
Plug your instrument into IN/OUT 1 and the input of each amp
into one of the A1 and B1 connectors. Pressing the switch 1 will
toggle between the two amps.
Fig. 1.2: Top view
SWITCH 1: this switch allows you to assign the IN/OUT 1
signal to A1 or B1 when IN/OUT 1 is used as an input.
Otherwise, the switch assigns the A1 or B1 signal to
IN/OUT 1 when A1 and B1 are used as inputs. The A1 and
B1 LEDs display which connector is currently active.
Depending on the selector
position, shortly press the
switch (LATCH) or hold it down during the whole commutation
time (NON LATCH) to toggle between A1 and B1.
Fig. 2.2: Two instruments / one amp
To install or replace the 9 V battery, please carefully unscrew the
bottom plate and open the enclosure of the AB200. After installing
close the unit again by using all screws you removed before.
Plug each of your instruments into one of the A1 and B1
connectors and the amp input into IN/OUT 1. Pressing the switch
1 will toggle between the two instruments.
