3. THREE WAYS TO CONTROL VOLUME USING THE VSE100
SENSE CONNECTIONS
If the SENSE feature is being used, the VSE100 will Mute when voltage is
absent but does not Un-Mute when voltage is present. The VSE100 will turn
on in a Muted state This allows the system or zone to be turned on without
the VSE100(s) playing audio. Stand-alone applications can simply use a
power supply plugged into to a switched outlet and connected to the SENSE
wire (Br/White) and Ground (Brown.) When connecting to an ELAN S6 or HD
system, either zone-specific or system-wide sensing is possible. ELAN Z
systems will provide system ON/OFF only.

RECEIVER
ELAN’s VSE100 is an electronic 12 step stereo Volume Control with Variable
Impedance Match settings of 1X, 2X, and 4X designed for use with amplifiers of up to 100 Watts output. The VSE100 features an IR receiver which
passes IR data to other sources as well as accepting IR information from
remote controls or other IR devices. The VSE100 also features an IR input
so that external controllers (ZPad® Keypads, VIA!® Color LCD Touchpanels,
etc.) can be hard wired to this device without using an IR emitter.
Additionally, the VSE100 features ELAN’s patented Page/Doorbell Override
to work with ELAN communication equipment. Impedance Match adjustments allow multiple pairs of speakers to be connected to the same amplifier channels without damaging the amplifier.

NOTE: The VSE100 will respond to any ELAN VOLUME UP/DOWN commands
found in the VIA!®TOOLS IR Library, EVCR remote, and
other ELAN remotes (Z030 and EVCR.) The EVCR remote
can be used to teach other learning remotes when necessary.
Remember, ELAN VOLUME UP/DOWN commands will control the
VSE100, but the VSE100 VOLUME UP/DOWN commands will NOT
control other ELAN equipment.

OPERATION
1. NINE WAYS TO TURN THE VSE100 ON (The VSE100 Volume level LEDs
are OFF.)
a. Press the MUTE button on the VSE100.
b. Press ON on the supplied remote.
c. Issue any ELAN Source Select IR command.
NOTE: When the VSE100 is turned ON using any of the above methods, the
Volume level is restored to the last setting before the VSE100 was
turned OFF.
d. Press the VOLUME UP button on the VSE100.
e. Press VOLUME UP on the supplied remote.
f. Issue any ELAN VOLUME UP IR command.
Impedance Matching: Allows multiple speaker pairs to be connected
to a single pair of amplifier channels.
IR In/Out: A built-in IR receiver allows the VSE100 to be controlled from,
universal remotes, keypads, VIA! Color LCD Touch Screen, or outboard IR
receiver. IR can be sent to the VSE100 using an IR emitter or through the
RJ45 jack on the rear of the unit. IR can be sent from the IR output to
source equipment, IR distribution networks or whole-house controllers.
SENSE: Detects absence or presence of voltage. When voltage is absent,
the VSE100 goes into Mute. The presence of voltage DOES NOT un-mute
the VSE100, however. A physical button press is required to un-Mute this
device. This allows the system or zone to be turned on without all of the
VSE100s in the system playing audio. Each VSE100 will turn on when the
Zone or System turns on, but they will all be in Mute. When connecting to
ELAN S or HD systems, the SENSE feature can be used for either zone-specific or system-wide detection. ELAN Z systems provide system On/Off
detection only.
ROUGH-IN
The VSE100 fits into most 18 cu. in. rough-in boxes and P-rings. P-rings
allow the best access and depth and should be used where local building
codes allow. DO NOT install the VSE100 in the same electrical box as highvoltage (110VAC) devices such as dimmers, light switches, etc. as these
devices will cause harmful interference and create buzzing, humming, or
other audio interference. Close proximity to high-voltage devices can also
cause undesired IR operation.
Like any IR device, the VSE100’s IR receiver is susceptible to interference
from ambient light, sunlight, or plasma television radiation. Please do not
mount the unit in locations susceptible to these conditions.
NOTE: The VSE100 is not warranted for outdoor installation.
WIRING
Speaker wire and CAT5 cable should be run from the main equipment location where the system’s amplifier is located to the mounting location for
each VSE100. The speaker terminals on this unit will accommodate 14 to 24
AWG stranded copper speaker wire. Runs that exceed 150 feet should use
heavier gauge wire, but 16 or 18 AWG is usually sufficient. Check local
building codes for specific guidelines regarding in-wall wire runs. CAT5
cable is required when installing this unit to provide Power, Override, Sense,
IR In, and IR Out. This unit must be connected to power in order to function.
RJ45 CONNECTIONS
1. Use ELAN C45P pre-terminated RJ45 cables or crimp your own
using the ELAN standard color code and pin-out.
2. Consult the following diagrams for specific CAT5 wiring requirements
for stand-alone or ELAN system operation.
3. Once proper connections are made at the head-end, plug the RJ45
connector into the jack on the rear of the VSE100.
4. Install the unit in the wall using the provided screws. Be careful not to
place tension on the CAT5 cable.
5. Test and adjust.

SPEAKER CONNECTIONS
1. Verify that the amplifier is powered down. Do not connect the RJ45
conector of the VSE100 at this point.
2. Strip back 1/4” of the insulation from each conductor of the speaker
wire. Twist and verifythat there are no frayed ends.
3. Remove the AMPLIFIER and SPEAKER connectors from the volume
control. Connect the L+, L-, R+, R- conductors from the amplifier to
the appropriate terminal on the AMPLIFIER connector. Make sure to
maintain proper +/- polarity!
4. Connect the wires from the speakers to the appropriate terminals on
the SPEAKER connetor, again ensuring proper +/- polarity.
5. Replace the AMPLIFIER and SPEAKER connectors.

A “Zone” is defined as an area of a whole-house audio system that has

A “Sub-Zone” is a room or area that shares source selection/control with
another area, but typically has separate ability to control volume for the
sub-zone.

The VSE100 has an IR Output (utilizing the built-in IR receiver) and an IR

with sub-zones, this IR Input will allow individual sub-zone control (including
Volume) from a keypad without having to use a separate Volume Control
mounted in the wall.

applications. Features such as Volume Control Override, Impedance
Matching, SENSE, and the built-in IR receiver allow this unit to seamlessly
