Compliancy

The equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits of the following standards for digital devices:

EN55103-1(Emission)

EN55103-2(Immunity)

FCC rules part 15, class A (Emission)

This device complies with part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject to the following conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial or light industrial environment. The equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and if not installed and used in accordance with the user manual it may cause harmful interference to radio communications.

You are cautioned that any changes or modifications not expressly approved in this manual could void your authority to operate this equipment.

Installation precautions

Do not install the unit in a location near heat sources such as radiators or air ducts, or in a place

exposed to direct sunlight, excessive dust or humidity, mechanical vibration or shock.

AO 6004 Audio Output Unit

General description

The AO 6004 Audio Output Unit for the DCS 6000 system enables the user to record the sound from a number of interpreted language channels or floor channel on external devices such as tapeor hard disk recorders by analogue interface.

It can also be used to distribute sound channels to for example infrared distribution or loudspeaker system.

Features

Decoding of 4 language channels into analogue audio chosen out of the possible 31 digital channels as well as the Floor channel in 3 qualities.

The 4 decoded channels are available on 4 analogue outputs (XLR connectors).

A number of AO 6004 can be combined to decode more channels. Up to 20 pieces AO 6004 can be connected and configured in one system to decode more channels.

Easy to use with preconfigured settings and automatic channel assignment at start-up:

Output A – channel 0 Output B – channel 1 Output C – channel 2 Output D – channel 3

User control of the AO 6004 by sending commands from a PC via CU 6005/6010.

The unit is connected to the bus as any other unit and by controlling it from the CU 6005/6010 it can be placed anywhere in the system.

The unit can be used as a single unit, installed in a 19’’ rack or inserted in a slot in the CU 6005.

User controls, indications & connections

Front plate layout

The front plate layout of the AO 6004 Audio Output Unit consists of 4 XLR analogue transformer balanced outputs and 2 DCS-LANconnectors:

Front plate controls and indicators

The AO 6004 is an easy to use AO unit with preconfigured settings and no user interface in terms of controls, display or indicators.

Front plate connectors

Audio Output A to D

On the front are located 4 XLR 3P connectors, each supplying transformer balanced audio signal from each of the 4 channels.

The outputs can be used for tape recording purpose i.e. or for connecting a digital infrared transmitter like DT 6008, DT 6032 or analogue infrared transmitter IT6108 for wireless transmission of the interpreted languages.

DCS-LANconnector

Two RJ45 sockets are located at the front of the unit for connecting to the previous unit like the CU 6005/6010 Central Unit or any other unit with a DCS LAN connector and to the next unit like an IS 6132 Interpreter set, CS 6032 Channel Selector, DM/CM 6xxx Conference Unit.

System settings

Pre-configuredsettings

The AO 6004 comes with pre-configuredsettings and can be used without additional configurations.

The AO 6004 automatically assigns channels to the outputs at start-up.Output A is assigned channel 0 (Floor), Output B is assigned channel 1, Output C is assigned channel 2 and Output D is assigned channel 3.

The output volume for each channel is +3 dB, which is the recommended level for connecting to DT 60xx.

The unit can be re-configuredusing SW 6000. The settings for a reconfigured unit can be saved in the CU 6005/6010.

SW6000 settings

The SW6000 can be used for changing the assignment of channels to outputs and for setting the volume.

Both the Conference Administration Application (CAA) and the Conference User Application (CUA) can be used to configure the AO units connected. They both have settings for assigning channels to each of the 4 outputs A-D.Each output can be set to

one of the 31 language channels or one of the three Floor channels:

Floor: automatic gain controlled output

Floor 1: loudspeaker unregulated audio

Floor 2: loudspeaker regulated audio

An ambience microphone will only be active on the Floor channel, not on Floor 1 or Floor 2

Values: {Floor 2, Floor 1, Floor, 1,…, 30, 31}

The volume of the outputs can also be set if the default settings are not appropriate.

Values: {Off, -40,-39,…,14, 15}

Refer to the CAA and CUA User Manuals for more details.

Normal operation

Powering up

Connect the AO unit(s) to the rest of the system via the DCS-LANconnectors and connect the audio outputs to the appropriate units (tape recorders, infrared transmitters, etc.).

Switch on the power on the CU 6005/6010.

During the initialization the AO unit will automatically assign channels to the outputs. The unit is immediately ready to use after start-upunless other channels need to be assigned to the outputs or the channel volume needs to be adjusted. These adjustments can only be done using the SW 6000.

General guidelines

Connect the AO 6004 to the various units using Cat 5 FTP or STP cables. Please observe the following guide lines:

Maximum cable length in one chain is 200 m without repeater. This includes interconnection cables between the units. The max. usable cable length depends on the units connected and length of feeding cables etc.

Maximum cable length in one chain when using repeaters is 650 m.

If the last unit in one chain is a CS 6032 Channel Selector, this unit has to be terminated with an external termination, as the CS 6032 does not have an internal termination.

Typical schematics

Connect the AO 6004 to the DCS 6000 network using Cat 5 cables. The Analogue Audio output connectors are connected to either tape recorders

for recording the interpreted channels or to IT6008 Infrared Transmitter(s) for transmitting the interpreted channels wireless.

Using AO 6004 with IT 6108 IR-Transmitter

When using the AO 6004 with the IT 6108 Infrared Transmitter, the audio output level on the AO 6004 has to be set to match the sensitivity on the transmitter.

The correct level to be set on each connected channel on the AO 6004 is –12db.

Using AO 6004 with DT 60xx Digital IR-Transmitter

When using the AO 6004 with the DT 60xx Infrared Transmitter, the audio output level on the AO 6004 has to be set to match the sensitivity on the transmitter.

The correct level on each connected channel on the AO 6004 is +3dB. This level is factory preset, but

can as earlier mentioned be changed using SW 6000. Please refer to the section ‘Pre-configuredsettings’ on page 8. The DT 60XX input level settings should be set to–6dB.

Cabling

CAT5

The DCS 6000 system uses CAT5, CAT5e or CAT6 FTP or STP cables with screened RJ45 connectors.

EIA 568-Bwiring shall be used.

It is important to use only FTP or STP (screened) cables and screened RJ45 connectors and not UTP cable, which is unscreened.

The phase of the pairs must be correct and the wiring spec. as stated in CAT5 (EIA 568-B)have to be followed.

Note: CAT6 cables can normally only be terminated in sockets (female) and not in cable plugs. CAT6 should thus only be used for long cable draws terminating in wall outlets or patch panels.
