ULTRALINK UL2000B
1. INTRODUCTION
Thank you very much for expressing your confidence in the ULTRALINK Series by purchasing this
unit. With the UL2000B from BEHRINGER, you have acquired a modern, high-performance wireless
transmission system.
Due to its amazing set of features, you can use the ULB2000 in any situation that requires the
highest quality in sound and freedom of movement for live concerts, events and television productions.
Depending on your local wireless transmission regulations, you can use up to 20 systems
simultaneously.
The ULR2000 receiver uses two complete receiver channels, which are automatically tuned to the
same frequency. This function requires no attention from the user. This so-called True Diversity
technology enables outstanding disturbance-free signal transmission. This way, you can profit from
the greatest freedom of movement and can fully concentrate on what’s essential: your music.
The IRC compander system guarantees an extremely wide transmission dynamic range. Since
vocals benefit from this characteristic most, the UL2000B is ideal for such applications.
The headset is holds a high-grade Panasonic® capsule with a cardioid polar pattern. Therefore, it
primarily picks up the sound from the front and less from the sides. The sound that reaches the
backside of the microphone is suppressed as much as possible, allowing it to be less susceptible to
feedback in live situations.
The ULTRALINK Series equipment features 3 factory presets, each with 8 permanent, interferencefree channels. This allows you to use several systems in parallel without them influencing one
another. Additionally, you have the option of storing 8 of your own frequencies in a user preset, thus
individually addressing your own needs.
Determining which microphone is assigned to which receiver is done either by observing the
transmission channel in the display or by comparing the transmission frequency. In addition, the
ULTRALINK equipment from BEHRINGER leaves you the option to color-code your gear for easy
identification.
Beyond that, both units feature other useful functions, such as Scan and Auto Mute. This way, no
wishes are left open during practice or in live situations.
The following instructions are intended to familiarize you with the unit’s controls, so that
you can learn all of its functions. After having thoroughly read these instructions, store
them in a safe place for future reference.
1.1 Before you get started
1.1.1 Shipment
The UL2000B was carefully packed at the factory to assure secure transportation. Should the
condition of the cardboard box suggest that damage may have taken place, please inspect the unit
immediately and look for physical indications of damage.
Damaged units should NEVER be sent directly to us. Please inform the dealer from
whom you acquired the unit immediately as well as the transportation company from
which you took delivery of the unit. Otherwise, all claims for replacement/repair may be
rendered invalid.
Always use the original packaging to avoid damage due to storage or shipment.
Never leave children unsupervised with the unit or its packaging.
Please dispose of all packaging materials in an environmentally friendly manner.
1.1.2 Registration
Before powering up the unit for the first time, you have to register it with your local postal/
telecommunication authority! Additional information is available there.

ULTRALINK UL2000B
1.1.3 Initial operation of the receiver
Assure adequate ventilation and never place your ULR2000 receiver on top of an amplifier or near
radiators to avoid overheating.
The wall power unit (model: E-SPS1) included in the delivery supplies the power to your ULR2000.
Only use the external power supply delivered with the unit!
The interchangeable AC plugs can be swapped at any time, adapting to various socket types in
different countries (Fig. 1.1).
1.
Keep the button (A) on the front side of the power supply pressed to release the plug. Pull the
plug out and let go of the button.
2.
Insert a different plug into the power supply unit. The plug is securely snapped into place
when you hear a click.
Fig. 1.1: Swapping plugs on the switching power supply unit
1.1.4 Initial operation of the transmitter
Prior to taking the ULB2000 into operation for the first time, you need to fit the provided antenna on
the transmitter. Connect the antenna to the designated plug located on the top of the ULB2000 by
means of the screw connector. Ensure that the antenna has been screwed tightly onto the transmitter.
The ULB2000 requires a 9-V battery to operate. The constant glowing of the LED indicates the
operational readiness. When the battery is nearly depleted, the STATUS LED on the transmitter
begins to flash quickly. At the same time, an inaudible signal is sent to the ULR2000 receiver which
then shows "LowBat" on its display. To ensure a reliable operation of the transmitter-receiver
system, change the transmitter's battery as follows:
1.
Hold the top of the transmitter with a free hand.
2.
Press both latches to the right and left of the casing and, at the same time, slide the cover
of the battery compartment downwards.
3.
Remove the old battery by using the provided implement.
4.
Insert a new 9-V battery in the compartment. Be sure that the implement is placed underneath
the battery.
5.
Slide the cover back onto the battery compartment until it locks into place.
Remove the battery when the ULB2000 is not used for an extended period of time.
Please ensure that only qualified personnel install and operate the ULB2000. During
installation and operation, the user must be sufficiently grounded. Electrostatic charges
might affect the operation of the unit.

2.1 Control elements and connections
In this chapter, different control elements of your ULR2000 will be described, explained in detail,
and you will get useful information on how to use them.
2.1.1 The front
Fig. 2.1: ULR2000’s front side
POWER
To power the ULR2000 on or off, keep the POWER button pressed for at least 2 seconds. To
disconnect the unit from the mains, please unplug the power supply. Make sure the wall power
supply is easily accessible whenever you use the ULR2000. If you mount it in a rack, make sure
that you can easily unplug the wall power supply or an all-pole disconnect switch.
Please keep in mind: The POWER switch does not entirely separate the unit from the
mains. Please disconnect the power cord from the mains if you won’t be using the unit
for a while.
VOLUME
The output signal level of the receiver can be set using the VOLUME control. If you run the
ULR2000 in a setup with balanced connections, a maximum signal level of 12.5 dBu is
possible; in setups with unbalanced connections, the maximum signal level is 6.5 dBu.
We would like to point out that high volume levels may cause distortion and high signal
levels in other equipment to which your ULR2000 is connected (e.g. mixing console or
headphones). High volume levels may damage your hearing and/or your headphones/
speakers. Please turn the VOLUME control all the way to the left (very low output signal)
before turning the ULR2000 on. Always make sure that an appropriate volume is set.

DISPLAY
All important parameters are shown in the display (ch. 2.1.2).
SET
The SET button has 2 functions:
Press this button to bring up the menu.
To confirm the values you set in the menu, press the SET button.
UP and
DOWN
These two buttons let you navigate the menu and change the values shown in the display (e.g.
frequency, channel number, preset number).
If the ULR2000 is in the basic setting (menu not selected), pressing the
UP and the
DOWN
buttons changes the transmission channel within the selected preset.
The
UP and
DOWN buttons have a repeat functionality with many function (i.e. the action
is carried out perpetually if the button is kept pressed; for example, setting a carrier frequency
can be simplified this way).
COLOR CODE
Each BEHRINGER ULTRALINK transmitter can be color-coded using a color ring; this way you
can easily differentiate between multiple transmitters (set to different frequencies). To easily
match a transmitter to a receiver, you can also attach color-coded strips to each receiver.
ANTENNA
Two bar antennae can be connected to the ANTENNA 1 and ANTENNA 2 connectors.
2.1.2 Display
Fig. 2.2: Closeup of the ULR2000 display
(antenna symbol)
These two antenna symbols indicate which antenna signal is currently being processed. The
left symbol lights up when the signal from the left-hand antenna (ANTENNA 1) is stronger, and
the right symbol shows that the signal from the right-hand antenna (ANTENNA 2) is being
processed.
RF LEVEL
The 8-level RF LEVEL display shows the reception strength of the carrier frequency (Radio
Frequency) on the ULR2000.
If not a single bar is shown, the carrier frequency is not being received. Bad reception is
indicated with 1 - 3 bars; signal noise may be somewhat higher in this case. The more bars are
shown, the better the reception of the transmitter carrier frequency on the ULR2000.
AF
Similar to a distortion gauge on a mixer or an amplifier, the 8-level AF indicator shows how
loud the demodulated audio signal (Audio Frequency) is.
If the signal has no amplitude or if the amplitude is low, no bars are shown. The maximum
undistorted AF-level is received when 7 bars (and not 8!) light up.
Only when the audio signal is overdriving or when no RF signal can be received (the
receiver creates too much noise), 8 bars are shown in the LCD.

Alphanumeric display
All the values and letters relevant to the operation of your ULR2000 are shown in the 6-digit
alphanumeric display: for example, channel number, channel color, frequency and menu
items.
CHANNEL
If the ULR2000 is in the basic setting (menu not selected), pressing the
UP and
DOWN
buttons changes the transmission channel within the selected preset.
If CHANNEL is lit, the individual channel numbers are shown (CHAN1, CHAN2, ...).
Also, when storing a user-selected frequency in the user preset, a channel number is entered.
FREQ MHz
If FREQ MHz lights up, changing the transmission channel using the
buttons also displays the frequency of the selected channel.
UP and
DOWN
If neither CHANNEL nor FREQ MHz are lit, the display is indicating the channel color
(BLUE, RED, ...) of the set channel. When storing a user-selected frequency in the user
preset, you will be asked to enter a channel color.
MUTE
MUTE indicates that the ULR2000 ’s output is being muted.
If the received and demodulated AF starts getting weaker, the noise increases; the signal-tonoise ratio gets smaller.
The SQUELCH menu item lets you enter a threshold value (in dB) for the signal-to-noise ratio.
If this ratio gets smaller than the threshold value, the receiver automatically mutes the signal
(ch. 2.2.3).
2.1.3 The back
Fig. 2.3: ULR2000 ’s back
The power is supplied via a 12 V connector. A matching cable is included in the delivery.
If the power supply is interrupted (e.g. by removing the wall power supply), please wait
at least 10 seconds before restoring the power supply again. This avoids causing
possible damage to the unit.
Balanced XLR output.
Balanced TRS output.
GND
The unit can be earthed. Attach an earthing cable to the GND screw.
SERIAL NUMBER
2.2 Menu items in detail
Briefly pressing the SET button gets you into the ULR2000’s menu. There you have many different
options to individually configure the receiver.
By using the

between 0 and 40 dB can be selected in 5-dB increments.
If a squelch value of 0 dB is set, the receiver will not mute the signal no matter how
noise-saturated the incoming signal is.
5.
Press the SET button to store your dB value. The procedure is now over, and the basic settings
are shown in the display again.
2.2.4 AUTO MUTE
If the transmitter is turned on, off, or is switched to another channel without first muting the receiver,
or if the transmission drops out due to weak batteries, audible noise will result. Even if the noise
limiter is enabled on the receiver (ch. 2.2.3), it still requires some time to react, and such noise can
not be suppressed safely.
To bridge this latency time, the ULR2000 offers a practical Auto Mute function:
When the ULB2000 is being turned off, when you are switching channels or during low-battery
indication, an inaudible send signal is being transmitted.
The ULR2000 recognizes this signal and automatically mutes the output before the transmitter
is actually turned off, switched to another channel or before it powers down on its own due to
battery charge being too low.
For the Auto Mute function to work, it has to be activated on both the transmitter and the
receiver!
Activating/deactivating the Auto Mute function
1.
Press the SET button to get to the menu.
2.

2.2.7 PRESET
The ULR2000 lets you work with 4 presets, each with 8 channels.
Factory presets (Presets 2, 3 and 4)
In the ULR2000, there are 3 factory presets (each with 8 interference-free channels). That means that
all 8 channels of one preset can run simultaneously with 8 different transmitters and receivers
without causing mutual interference.
The channels in the 3 factory presets are all assigned to different frequencies. This way, you can
always select a frequency range that assures the best signal transmission.
The following table shows which frequencies are stored in the factory presets.

3.1 Control elements
In this chapter, different control elements of your ULB2000 will be described, explained in detail,
and you will get useful information on how to use them.
Fig. 3.1: Controls of the ULB2000
POWER
To power the hand-held transmitter on or off, keep the POWER button pressed for at least 2
seconds. Briefly pressing the POWER button confirms your choices when entering values
(refers to later chapters). Additionally, you can check the current transmitter settings (selected
channel and battery condition).
MUTE switch
Engaging the MUTE switch mutes the microphone. Additionally, the ULB2000 can be switched
to programming mode by selecting the digits 9 or 0; or, you can get a readout of a specific unit
setting.
SELECTION SWITCH
Using a screwdriver, you can select different values on the SELECTION SWITCH. For example,
you can select a channel number and the frequency.
STATUS LED
Through repeated blinking, the status LED gives the account of the current settings for all
parameters. We differentiate between 3 different blinking tempos:
The LED flashes slowly when exiting the programming mode, for example.
To give the account of the channel number or individual frequency values, the LED
blinks with medium tempo.
Rapid blinking indicates an error, for example an empty battery or a faulty entry.
The costant glowing of the LED indicates the operational readiness of the transmitter.
The SERIAL NUMBER is located on the transmitter battery compartment. To get to the serial
number, please open the battery compartment (see ch. 1.1.4).
3.2 Operating the Transmitter
A brief overview with the graphic representation on operating the transmitter is found on the last
page of this user manual (QUICK REFERENCE GUIDE).
3.2.1 Turning the transmitter on

A blink code indicates the charge level of the battery:
1 = Battery is nearly empty . . . 5 = Battery is fully charged
Shortly after, a second blink code indicates the current channel setting for the transmitter:
1 = Channel 1 is selected
...
8 = Channel 8 is selected
When the blink codes have indicated the operating state, a constant glowing of the LED indicates the
operational readiness. However, the battery is discharged and needs to be replaced when the LED
continues to flash (see Chapter 1.1.4).
3.2.2 Channel setting
Within a preset, you can easily select a channel by using the select switch
relevant whether the transmitter is on or off.

selected.
Changing the channel when the transmitter is powered off
1.
Turn the selection switch to one of the values (1 - 8), corresponding to the desired channel
number.
2.
If you turn on the transmitter, the channel you selected is automatically loaded.
If an invalid channel number was selected (0 or 9), the channel selected last remains
selected.
3.2.3 Setting your own frequency
A carrier frequency in the range between 798.1 and 805.9 MHz can be freely selected. This frequency
is stored in a self-assignable user preset (Preset 1).
The carrier frequency can only be set in 25-kHz steps. The frequency you select has to
be a multiple of 25 kHz. If you select a frequency that is not a multiple of 25 kHz or does
not lie in the frequency range between 798.1 and 805.9 MHz, the ULB2000 gives off an
error message (the LED blinks quickly 5 times).
1.
Engage MUTE. The transmitter can now be switched to the programming mode.
2.
Turn the selection switch to 9 and confirm your selection by keeping the POWER button
pressed for about 2 seconds. The LED indicates confirmation by blinking once with medium
tempo and blinking once slowly. The transmitter is now in the programming mode and awaits
the entry of a 6-digit frequency.
3.
Enter all 6 digits one after another in the following fashion:
Select the desired value on the selection switch, for example 4. If a valid value is
selected, the LED blinks quickly once as a confirmation. This way, you can be sure that
a correct value is entered (in regard to the frequency range and divisibility by 25 kHz)
even before confirming your selection.
Confirm your selection by briefly pressing the POWER button.
If the end frequency value you entered is valid, the LED blinks quickly once more. If the
frequency value is invalid, the LED blinks quickly 5 times, and the unit is no longer in the
programming mode. In this case, start anew with step 2.
After a brief interruption, a second blink code is given: the LED blinks corresponding to
the value selected (in this case, 4 times) with medium tempo.

The value 0 is indicated by a very short blink of the LED, and you will easily tell a
0 from a 1.
If no entry is made for more than 5 seconds (either on the selection switch or by
pressing the POWER button), the LED blinks quickly 5 times, and the programming
mode is aborted.
After entering the 6 digits for the frequency value, enter another value to indicate the channel
number under which the frequency will be stored.
4.
Select a desired channel number on the selection switch, for example channel 2 (possible
values: 1 - 8). If a valid value is selected, the LED blinks quickly once to confirm. This way, you
can be sure that a correct channel number is being entered even before confirming your
selection.
5.
Confirm your selection by briefly pressing the POWER button.
6.
When a valid value is selected, the LED blinks briefly again. When an invalid value is
selected, the LED blinks quickly 5 times and the unit is no longer in the programming mode.
In this case, start anew with step 2.
After a brief interruption, a second blink code is given: the LED blinks corresponding to the
value selected (in this case, 2 times) with medium tempo.
7.
After a second blink pause, an additional blink code is given as a confirmation:
A successfully stored frequency is signaled with 2 slow blinks. The transmitter leaves the
programming mode.
If the LED blinks quickly 5 times, the frequency was not stored. In this case, start anew with
step 2.
If no entry is made for more than 5 seconds (either on the selection switch or by
pressing the POWER button), the LED blinks quickly 5 times, and the programming
mode is aborted.
8.
Disengage the MUTE switch.
A user-assigned frequency is automatically stored in the user preset (Preset 1)!
3.2.4 Preset
The ULB2000 lets you work with 4 presets, each with 8 channels.
Factory presets (Presets 2, 3 and 4)
In the ULB2000, there are 3 factory presets (each with 8 interference-free channels). That means that
all 8 channels of one preset can run simultaneously with 8 different transmitters and receivers
without causing interference to one another.
The channels in the 3 factory presets are all assigned to different frequencies. This way, you can
always select a frequency range that assures the best signal transmission.
The following table shows which frequencies are stored in the factory presets.

7.
Disengage MUTE.
3.2.6 Auto Mute
The receiver's incoming signal will contain audible noise and interference should the transmitter be
turned on, off or changed to another channel without having muted the microphone beforehand, or
if the transmission has been interrupted due to a drained battery in the transmitter. Even if the
squelch circuit is turned on at the receiver end, it still requires some time to react, and such noise
can not be suppressed safely.
To bridge this latency time, the ULB2000 offers a practical Auto Mute function:
When the ULB2000 is being turned off, when you are switching channels or during low-battery
indication, an inaudible send signal is being transmitted.
The ULR2000 recognizes this signal and automatically mutes the output before the transmitter
is actually turned off, switched to another channel or before it powers down on its own due to
battery charge being too low.
For the Auto Mute function to work, it has to be activated on both the transmitter and the
receiver!
Activating/deactivating the Auto Mute function
1.
Engage MUTE. The transmitter can now be switched into the programming mode.
2.
Turn the selection switch to 0 and confirm your selection by keeping the POWER switch
pressed for 2 seconds. As a confirmation, the LED blinks slowly once and then once again with
medium tempo. The transmitter is now in the programming mode and waits for you to enter a
one-digit number.
3.
Select one of the following two digits on the selection switch:
Activate Auto Mute: select 7
Deactivate Auto Mute: select 8
If a valid selection is made, the LED blinks quickly once to confirm your selection. This way,
you can be sure that a correct value is entered (in regard to preset, MicGain and Auto Mute
selection) even before confirming your selection.
Selecting the values 1 through 4 changes the preset settings (ch. 3.2.4). Selecting 5 or
6 changes the Mic Gain settings (ch. 3.2.5). Values 9 and 0 are invalid.
4.
Confirm your selection by briefly pressing the POWER button.
5.
If the selection you made is valid, the LED blinks quickly once again. An invalid selection is
indicated with 5 quick blinks, and the unit is immediately no longer in the programming mode.
In this case, start anew with step 2.
After a brief break, a second blink code is given:
Auto Mute activated: the LED blinks once at middle tempo.
Auto Mute engaged: the LED blinks twice at middle tempo.
If no entry is made for more than 5 seconds (either on the selection switch or by
pressing the POWER button), the LED blinks quickly 5 times, and the programming
mode is aborted.

After a second brief blink break, an additional blink code is given as a confirmation:
Two slow blinks signal that the Auto Mute setting was changed. The transmitter leaves
the programming mode.
If the setting for Auto Mute could not be stored, the LED blinks quickly 5 times. In this
case, start anew with step 2.
7.
Disengage MUTE.
3.2.7 Turning the transmitter off
To turn off the transmitter, press the POWER button for 2 seconds. The LED flashes slowly to show
that the microphone is powering down.
The transmitter stores the frequency and the channel settings. These parameters are
restored to these same values the next time you turn the unit on.
3.3 Status query
During operation, the parameters "transmission channel", "battery condition", "transmission
frequency", "preset", "Mic Gain" and "Auto Mute" may need to be checked. The statuses can be
monitored without having to turn the transmitter off and back on.
3.3.1 Battery condition and transmission channel
1.
Turn the selection switch to 0. The position of the MUTE switch does not matter.
2.
Briefly press the POWER button.
3.
As is this case when turning the transmitter on, the blink codes flash at a medium rate
indicating the current status:
battery condition:
selcted channel:
1 = battery is nearly empty . . . 5 = battery is fully loaded
1 = channel 1 is selected. . .
8 = channel 8 is selected
If the receiver is not powered on, no status is indicated. Briefly pressing the POWER
button will neither turn the transmitter on nor off!
3.3.2 Transmission frequency
1.
Turn the selection switch to 9. The position of the MUTE switch is irrelevant.
2.
Briefly press the POWER button.
3.
Just like during programming, 6 blink medium-tempo codes indicate the individual digits that
make up the transmission frequency. Individual codes are separated from one another by brief
pauses.
The value 0 is signaled by a very short blink of the LED, and you will easily tell a
0 from a 1.
If the receiver is not powered on, no status is indicated. Briefly pressing the POWER
button will neither turn the transmitter on nor off!
3.3.3 Preset
1.
Make sure the transmitter is not muted (MUTE switch is set to OFF).
2.
Turn the selection switch to 1, 2, 3 or 4 and confirm your selection by briefly pressing the
POWER button.
3.
The LED indicates the preset number with the corresponding number of medium-tempo
blinks.

3.5 ULB2000 level setting
To optimally set the level on your ULB2000, the High Gain or Low Gain setting has to be
set to the level of the signal being transmitted (ch. 3.2.5).
Adjust the gain control in the microphone channel of your mixing console so that the peak LED
lights up only occasionally or never at all. The EQ controls in the microphone channel should be set
to mid-travel position to start with. To get the sound you want, try changing the mic position relative
to the sound source or even move the microphone around in the recording room of your studio.
Adjusting the angle at which walls face the sound source can also be helpful. Only when the desired
basic sound has been achieved should you start to use equalizers and signal processors, if any at all
(remember: less is often more!)
4. APPLICATION EXAMPLE
Fig. 4.1 shows how easy it is to use the products from the BEHRINGER ULTRALINK Series.
Simply connect the balanced XLR output on the ULR2000 to the XLR input on your mixing console.
Of course, you can use the receiver’s TRS output to connect to the next device in the signal path.

5.1 Operating information
The quality of the wireless transmission depends on various local factors as well as the degree of
radiation and reception at transmitter and receiver, unlike the signal transmission over cable. To
minimize the risk of interference, take the following suggestions into account for a smooth operation
of the wireless system.
5.1.1 Attach the transmitter
For optimal operation of the transmitter, please observe the following when attaching the transmitter:
Use only the provided headset and ensure that the mini XLR-connector is fastened correctly.
Attach the transmitter to a belt by using the provided clip instead of simply placing it into a
pocket, for instance. The optimal freedom of movement is guaranteed by fastening the transmitter
to one's back or side.
Make sure the headset's cable is not wrapped around or comes into contact with the antenna; this
would result in an impairment of the transmission.
Avoid direct body contact with the antenna to attain a maximum range.
The headset's microphone capsule should be aligned towards the speaker at approximately 25 cm from the mouth. Ideally, the capsule should be kept off-centered to mouth and nose to
avoid the conveyance of breathing sounds.
5.1.2 General information
Always make sure that the devices are not operated in direct proximity of large metallic
surfaces (radiators, metal racks, reinforced concrete walls and similar).
The devices should always be at a height of at least 1 m (3 ft.) off the ground.
To assure good reception in many different positions, we advise against having the antennae
point at a 90-degree angle. Instead, antennae should be arranged at an angle of no more
than 40° in respect to one another.
To assure interference-free reception, ideally there should be no large objects placed between
the transmitter and the receiver. Not only the size but also the type of material play a role in
determining how strong signal interference will be!
Keep a minimum distance of 5 meters between transmitter and sender to avoid signal
overmodulation.
When using multiple transmitters, the distance between the transmitting units should be at least
20 cm to avoid crosstalk (i.e. intermodulation).
Replace used batteries ahead of time. A dropout would be unacceptable at a production,
hence, do not wait until the battery indicator warns you that the battery needs to be replaced.
Use the presets to guarantee an interference-free transmission of multiple transmitters and
receivers on up to 8 channels.
If you want to install your ULR2000 in a rack, please read the following chapter; there you can
find all the necessary information.
5.2 Installation in a rack
The ULR2000’s antennae are located in the front of the unit. This allows unproblematic installation
in a rack.
Each unit is delivered with a rack bracket and a connecting joint. This way, you can choose:
1.
If you wish to install only one unit in a rack, mount a rack bracket to one of the sides. In this
case, you will not need the included connecting joint. Now, install one side of the receiver into
the rack.
2.
To install 2 receivers in a rack, first connect the two receivers to one another at the bottom
using the connecting joint. Mount one rack bracket on the left side of one unit and one rack
bracket on the right side of the other unit. Now, both ULR2000s can be installed in a rack.

ULTRALINK UL2000B
To assure good reception, if possible, install the ULR2000 as high in a rack as possible,
so that the antennae protrude above the upper edge of the rack.
The ULR2000 requires one height unit (1 HE) for installation in a 19-inch rack. Please assure that
there are additional 10 cm (4 inches) of free space in the back for connecting cables.
For installation in a rack, use M6 machine screws and nuts.
Be sure that there is plenty of space around the unit for cooling and, to avoid overheating, please
do not place the ULR2000 on top of power amplifiers or other heat-emitting equipment.
If you wish to install more than 2 units in a rack, please make sure that there is enough space
between them (fig. 5.1). The lower unit’s antennae may not perturb against the upper unit’s antennae.
Otherwise, they could interfere with one another, causing a decrease in reception quality.
