Danger

Exposure to extremely high noise levels may cause a permanent hearing loss. Individuals vary considerably to noise induced hearing loss but nearly everyone will lose some hearing if exposed to sufficiently intense noise for a sufficient time. The U.S. Government's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has specified the following permissible noise level exposures:

DURATION PER DAY (HOURS)

8

6

4 3 2 1

SOUND LEVEL (dB)

90

93

95 97 100 103

 

 

 

 

According to OSHA, any exposure in the above permissible limits could result in some hearing loss. Ear plugs or protectors in the ear canal or over the ears must be worn when operating this amplification system in order to prevent a permanent hearing loss. If exposure in excess of the limits as put forth above, to insure against potentially harmful exposure to high sound pressure levels, it is recommended that all persons exposed to equipment capable of inducing high sound pressure levels, such as this amplification system, be protected by hearing protectors while this unit is in operation.

CAUTION

RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK

DO NOT OPEN

CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO

NOT REMOVE CHASSIS. NO USER-SERVICEABLE

PARTS INSIDE. REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED

SERVICE PERSONNEL.

AVIS: RISQUE DE CHOC ELECTRIQUE-NEPAS OUVRIR.

THIS SYMBOL IS INTENDED TO ALERT THE USER TO THE PRESENCE OF NON-INSULATED"DANGEROUS VOLTAGE" WITHIN THE PRODUCT'S ENCLOSURE THAT MAY BE OF SUFFICIENT MAGNITUDE TO CONSTITUTE A RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK TO PERSONS.

THIS SYMBOL IS INTENDED TO ALERT THE USER TO THE PRESENCE OF IMPORTANT OPERATING AND MAINTENANCE (SERVICING) INSTRUCTIONS IN THE LITERATURE ACCOMPANYING THE UNIT.

APPARATUS SHALL NOT BE EXPOSED TO DRIPPING OR SPLASHING AND THAT NO OBJECTS FILLED WITH LIQUIDS, SUCH AS VASES, SHALL BE PLACED ON THE APPARATUS.

1.Read all safety and operating instructions before using this product.

2.All safety and operating instructions should be kept for future reference.

3.Read and understand all warnings listed on the operating instructions.

4 . Follow all operating instructions to operate this product.

5.This product should not be used near water, i.e. bathtub, sink, swimming pool, wet basement, etc.

6.Only use dry cloth to clean this product.

7.Do not block any ventilation openings, It should not be placed flat against a wall or placed in a built-inenclosure that will impede the flow of cooling air.

8.Do not install this product near any heat sources ; such as, radiators, heat registers, stove or other apparatus (including heat producing amplifiers) that produce heat.

9.Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or groundingtype plug. A polarized plug has two blades with one wider than the other. A grounding-typeplug has two blades and a third grounding prong. The wide blade or the third prong are provided for your safety. If the provided plug does not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for replacement of the obsolete outlet.

10.Protect the power cord being walked on or pinched, particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles and the point where they exit from the apparatus. Do not break the ground pin of the power supply cord.

11 . Only use attachments specified by the manufacturer.

12.Use only with the cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table specified by the manufacturer or sold with the apparatus. When a cart is used, use caution when moving cart/apparatus combination to avoid injury from tip-over.

13.Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time.

14.Care should be taken so that objects do not fall and liquids are not spilled into the unit through the ventilation ports or any other openings.

15.Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing is required when the apparatus has been damaged in any way; such as, power-supplycord or plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the apparatus, the apparatus has been exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally or has been dropped.

16.WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this apparatus to rain or moisture.

Danger

L‘exposition a des niveaux eleves de bruit peut provoquer une perte permanente de l’audition, Chaque organisme humain reagit differemment quant a la perte de l’audition, mais quasiment tout le monde subit une diminution de I’acuite auditive lors d’une exposition suffisamment longue au bruit intense. Les autorites competentes en reglementation de bruit ont defini les expositions tolerees aux niveaux de bruits:

Selon les autorites, toute exposition dans les limites citees ci-dessus,peuvent provoquer certaines pertes d’audition. Des bouchons ou protections dans l’appareil auditif ou sur l’oreille doivent etre portes lors de l’utilisation de ce systeme d’amplification afin de prevenir le risque de perte permanente de l’audition, Dans le cas d’expositions superieures aux limites precitees il est recommande, afin de se premunir contre les expositions aux pressions acoustiquese I evees potentielIement dangeure u ses, aux personnes exposees aux equipements capables de delivrer de telles puissances, tels ce systeme d’amplification en fonctionnement, de proteger l’appareil auditif.

Installing the Essentia System in Your Home

I. Prewire

The Essentia System uses CAT5 cable for Control Pad control and either two or four-conductor16-gaugespeaker wire. All the wire is “homerun” from each zone to the location of the Essentia amplifier and Audio Source equipment.

Complete CAT5 Crimping Instructions

The NuVo audio systems require CAT5, unshielded, twisted pair (UTP) for communication between the Control Pads and the main amplifier unit. Each end of the wire is terminated with an RJ45 connector.

The Essentia System can accommodate 2,000 total feet of CAT5 cable. For the most reliable operation, it is best that no single run of CAT5 exceeds 250 feet.

The correct wiring scheme for the CAT5 cable is standard EIA/TIA 568A, or 568B. Properly terminating the CAT5 cable is crucial for the operation of the system. It is very important to use a good quality crimp tool, and test each end to end run with a CAT5 wire tester to insure that your system operates flawlessly, Fig.1.

Step-by-StepCrimping Instructions:

1.Strip a 2 to 3 inch portion of the insulation, exposing the 4 twisted pairs.

2.Untwist the wires and fan them out individually. Arrange the wires into the correct color scheme as shown in Fig. 1.

3.Flatten the wires in their correct order and

trim

them evenly across the top. Most crimp

tools have

a wire trimmer built-in.It is best to trim

the wires

to about ½” in length.

4.While holding the wires flat between your thumb

 

and forefinger, insert the wires into the RJ45

 

connector so each is in its own slot. Push the

wire

into the RJ45 so all 8 conductors touch the end

of

the connector. The insulation jacket should

RJ45.

extend beyond the crimp point of the

 

 

5.

Insert the RJ45 into the crimp tool receptacle

and

squeeze the tool firmly. Note that a ratchet type

 

tool should tighten down until it no longer clicks.

6.

The RJ45 should be firmly crimped to the CAT5

 

insulation. It is necessary that the

color

scheme

be repeated identically on each end of

the wire.

 

7.Test each termination with a CAT5 Tester before completing the installation.

Wires insert from this end.
