Buttons

‘-‘

The buttons below and to the left of the display are used when stepping through the different menus and for setting up the system:

Four select buttons

Four buttons placed on the left-handside of the display. Each button is associated with a line pointing towards a text line in the display. This indicates, that pushing the button ‘selects’ the functionality.

Enter button

The Enter button is used, when a selection is made in the Main Menu. Pressing the Enter button concludes the selection made, and at the same time it indicates a confirmation of the possible changes made within the selection. The Menu system returns to the previous menu. Notice, that some changes are applied immediately, and confirmation is thus not required.

Menu button

The Menu button is also used, when a selection is made in the Main Menu. The Menu button concludes the selection, but in contrast to the Enter button, the Menu button does not confirm a possible change made within the selection. Instead, the Menu system returns to the previous menu without confirming changes, if confirmation is required.

Up () and Down () buttons

The Up and Down buttons are used to scroll through menu items, or to increase/decrease values within a selection.

Symbols

The following symbols are used on the LCD display:

The dash symbol (‘-‘)preceding a line of text identifies a submenu or a changeable parameter. The submenu or parameter can be selected by pressing the corresponding select button.

‘>’

The ‘>’ symbol preceding a line of text identifies a selected parameter. The parameter can be changed by pressing the up and down buttons. The ‘>’ symbol is shown as long as the value of the parameter currently used is the same as the value shown in the display.

‘*’

The star symbol ‘*’ preceding a line of text identifies a selected parameter, where the value has been changed, but not yet confirmed. The changed value can be confirmed by pressing the Enter button, or it can be dismissed by pressing the Menu button.

▲▼

The up and down symbols shown in the right side of the display (up is shown in the first line and down is shown in the last line) indicates that the current menu consists of more than 4 menu items. It is therefore necessary to use the up and down buttons to scroll through menu items.

Indications

Cursor

The cursor is used on the LCD display to indicate, when a value is being changed. For a parameter that is subject to a change, the cursor is placed at the value of the parameter, indicating that it is about to be changed.

Max. Total Speakers

Max. Delegate Speakers

Values: {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8}

The number of ‘Total Speakers’ defines the maximum number of conference units, which can speak at the same time. This includes both delegate and chairman units.

The number of ‘Delegate Speakers’ defines the maximum number of Delegate conference units, which are allowed to speak at the same time is defined as “Max Speakers”.

Please observe that a Chairman Unit can always be switched ON as long as the number set in ‘Max. Total Speakers’ are not exceeded.

Max Requests

“Max Requests” defines how many delegate units that can be inserted into the list of delegates requesting to speak at the same time.

Values : {0, 1, …, 255}

Operation Mode

This menu point has two settings:

Operation mode

Interrupt

Operation mode

The “Operation Mode” determines the behaviour of the microphone system.

Values: {Auto, Manual, FIFO, VOX}:

Auto (or Automatic) mode allows for the microphone units to be switched on immediately upon pressing the microphone ON/OFF button.

This is indicated by a red light in the ‘Speak’ lamp in the microphone unit. Pressing the microphone ON/OFF button again will turn the microphone off

A Chairman Unit is always in Auto or VOX mode.

Manual mode features a request list, where ‘Delegates’ are inserted in a queue upon pressing the microphone ON/OFF button. This is confirmed by a steady green light in the ‘Request’ lamp in the delegate unit. It is possible to cancel the request by pressing the button again.

The microphone can only be switched on from a PC running SW 6000 software or from a control system like AMX or Crestron. This will be indicated by red light in the ‘Speak’ lamp in the microphone unit. At this point the delegate can switch off the microphone by pressing the ON/OFF microphone button.

Although it is possible to switch to this mode in a stand-alone-system,this mode is only used with an attached PC running SW 6000 software or using with a control system.

FIFO is an automated mode. The microphone unit functions in the same way as in automatic mode as long as the number of turned on delegate units is less or equal to the selected maximum speakers.

When the max. number is reached, the next delegate pressing the ON/OFF button will be put in the top of the request queue. This is indicated by the green ‘Request’ lamp flashing slowly.

User Manual

Complete Lock

With this setting an interpreter cannot switch on his microphone to any occupied interpreter channel.

This is the default setting.

No Lock

With this setting an interpreter turning on his microphone to any occupied interpreter channel, will turn of the interpreter occupying the channel.

Interlock

Those settings are used to give various interlocks.

A interrupt A

An interpreter turning on his microphone on an A- channel will interrupt another interpreter using his A channel

A interrupt B

An interpreter turning on his microphone on an A- channel will interrupt another interpreter using his B channel, but will not interrupt an interpreter using his A channel.

A interrupt A+B

An interpreter turning on his microphone on an A- channel will interrupt another interpreter using his A or B channel.

Channel Display

This setting is used to switch the showing in the channel selectors displays in conference units between Language Abbreviation and Channel Number.

Ambient microphone

By choosing ‘Ambient Microphone’ from the main menu and parameters for an AM 6040 Ambient Noise microphone can be set up

The purpose of an ambient noise microphone is to provide sound from a meeting room/conference hall, when there is no delegate/chairman using their microphones.

Transmission of ambient noise rather than transmitting no sound at all is a desirable feature from listeners attending the meeting via headphones. The ambient noise indicates to the listeners, that there is no speaking activity going on, and this information is very nice to have, when interpreters are doing interpretation, and the speaker stops speaking.

The setup menu has the following options:

Amb.Mic

Amb.Mic Level

Amb.Mic

When ‘enabled is selected, the Ambient Noise Microphone is active.

When the LineIn>Loudspk under Audio control is set to a value between -40dBand +20dB the microphone will be disabled. If the LineIn>Loudspk subsequently is set to Off, the microphone will stay disabled until enabled in Amb.Mic.

Values: {Enabled, Disabled}

Amb.Mic Level

Adjust the level of the microphone to a level, which is suitable for the listener (Interpreter).

Values: {Off, -40,-39,…,18, 19, 20}

The user returns to the main menu by pressing either the Menu button or the Enter button.

User Manual

The Chain info menu displays information to the user about units connected to the CU. The information is divided into Chain A, Chain B and total. Found units are connected units, where the communication is maintained, and expected units comprises all units, which are defined in the ‘Configuration’.

Menu button or Enter button leaves this screen.

Display Unit types

Selecting the Display Unit types in the Units info menu displays the number of present units. The available units are:

Delegate units

Dual Mic. units

Chairman units

Voting units

Interpreter units

Amb. Mic units

External Control

For external control it is indicated by ‘ON’ or ‘OFF’ whether an external PC is connected and communicating (alive) via the RS232/RS422 connection to the CU.

Menu button or Enter button leaves this screen.

RS232 setup

The RS232 setup menu consists of two setup issues:

RS232 baudrate

RS232 mode

RS232 baudrate

The “RS232 baudrate” determines the bit rate of the communication between the CU and an external unit connected via the RS232 or RS422 connection.

Values: {2400, 4800, 9600, 19200, 38400, 57600, 115200}

RS232 mode

The “Input mode” defines whether the ASCII communication via RS232/RS422 is protected by CRC check or not.

By protecting the communication (“Protected”), the risk of faulty communication via RS232/RS422 is minimized.

The risk of faults via RS232/RS422 is higher running the “Default” mode; however, the communication is possible from standard interfaces.

The RS232 terminal interface emulator, Tera Term, does not feature the possibility of guarding the ASCII communication by CRC check.

Values: {Default, Protected}

Security setup

The setup determines if ”Audio Scrambling” is activates or not.

Values: {Off, On}

Default value is ‘off’. When switching to ‘on’, the CU has to be restarted. All units will automatically change to the scrambled mode.

The scrambling mode is used in high security places, when ears dropping cannot be accepted.

The display is shown for a few seconds before the CU returns to the “Main menu”.

Understanding “Save” and “Load” configuration

When saving the configuration, the setting that has been done in the various menus in CU 6010, at the IS 6132 Interpreter Sets and at AO 6008 Audio Unit will be saved in the ‘Flash’ memory in the CU 6010.

Also the serial number and type of all units connected to the CU 6010 at the time of saving the configuration will be saved in the ‘Flash’ memory in the CU 6010.

When switching on power to the CU 6010 at a later stage, then the units connected will be compared to the saved configuration. If some units are not present, they will be reported as ‘missing’

When ‘loading’ a configuration the last settings, which has been saved in the ‘Flash’ memory in the CU 6010 will be re-loadedto the CU 6010, to the IS 6132 Interpreter Sets and to the AO 6008 Audio Unit.

When switching the power to the CU 6010 OFF and then ON, the last saved setting will also be loaded.

Delete configuration

The “Delete configuration” item brings the user to the Delete configuration confirmation display:

This will delete the configuration in flash. Continue?

If the user accepts the deletion the progress display is shown:

Deleting...

The display is shown for a few seconds before the CU returns to the “Main menu”.

Schematics volume/gain settings

The volume controls, which can be set on the CU 6010 user interface as described in the previous section are shown in the following schematic.

Setting of Loudspeaker volume

1.Set the Mic>Loudspk to 0dB

2.Turn up the Loudspk Volume to the level needed in the loudspeakers.

Setting Line input level

1.Apply the signal to the Input connector

2.Turn up the input level on “LineInlevel Adj” until you can see the overflow indicator.

-LineIn->Loudspk:-17dB-LineIn->LineOut:10dB >LineInLevel Adj:*-6dB-Loudspkvolume: 3dB ▼

”*” Overflow indicator on line input

3.Turn then the InputIn level down –8dB to–12dBfrom the clipping level. Depending of the source connected, there might be different “overhead” needed. But normally8-12db is enough.

4.Turn up the Linein >Loudspk Volume to the level needed in the loudspeakers

The principle is that the level of signal from the Line Input is combined of two settings:

“LinelnLevel Adj” and “ LineIn->Loudspk” .
