2.3
The Plena Mixer Amplifier
The Plena Mixer Amplifier is a high performance,
professional public address unit for mixing up to four
separate microphone/line signals, and any one of three
separate music signals. For a schematic overview of the
Plena Mixer Amplifier, see figure 2.1 on the next page.
en | 9
The volume of each microphone/line signal can be
individually adjusted to obtain the required mix; the
mixed output is controlled via the master volume
control and separate high/low tone controls.
The unit is easy to use, and provides a crisp call or clear
music. The amplifier also has enhanced features such as
ducking level control, priority, labelling, and setting
indicators.
All Microphone/line inputs can be switched between
microphone level and line level sensitivity. The inputs
are balanced but can also be used unbalanced. Phantom
power can be selected via a DIP switch to provide
power to condenser microphones. Input channels 1
and 2 can take priority over all other microphone and
music inputs:
• Input 1 can be activated by contact closure on a PTT
(push to talk). A chime can be configured to precede
an announcement.
• Input 2 can be switched automatically if a signal is
available at the input, for example, if someone
speaks into the microphone (VOX activation).
A telephone/70 V emergency input with VOX
activation is also provided for easy integration with
another PA system or a telephone paging system. It has
its own volume control and overrides all other inputs,
including the call station and inputs 1 and 2.
The unit also has a line output to add amplifiers for
larger systems that require more output power. This
output can be switched to music only, for example, so
that music on hold can be provided for the telephone
system.
Users can create custom labels for inputs and music
sources. These labels can be attached to the special
holders at the front of the mixer amplifier. Colored pins
can also be inserted at various positions around the
volume and tone dial controls to indicate favorite
settings for a particular application.

An LED meter monitors the master output before the
zone selection. This signal is also present on the
headphone connector below the output meter. For
total reliability and ease of use, a limiter is integrated
into the output stage to restrict output if the user
applies too much signal.

Connections and settings
4.1
Connecting inputs
4.1.1
Priority microphone (input 1)
The priority microphone (or a generic call station) that
can be used with push to talk (PTT) should be
connected to “microphone/line 1 input”. The PTT
mode can be activated by setting the DIP switch (11) at
the rear of the unit. Microphone/line 1 input has
priority over all other microphone/line inputs.
If, however, the “Tel. emergency/70V input” receives a
signal, all inputs including microphone/line 1 input will
be overruled.
The microphone/line 1 input has a Euro style pluggable
screw terminal connector. This Euro style pluggable
screw terminal connector has a trigger input, which can
be used in combination with the Euro connector.
figure 4.1: Euro connector with trigger
The priority microphone can be connected to the
microphone/line 1 input with trigger as follows:
• Euro connector with trigger. See figure 4.1.
• Euro connector only (without trigger).
Set the DIP switch settings for microphone/line 1 with
trigger, as required. See section 4.3.
Note
When connecting an unbalanced line level
(200 mV) signal to the microphone/line input,
connect it as follows: Signal to +, connect to and GND to ground.

4.1.2
Secondary microphone (input 2)
Connect a secondary microphone to “microphone/line
input 2”. See figure 4.2.
Microphone/line input 2 has a DIP switch (11) at the
rear of the unit for setting the VOX mode. If the DIP
switch is set to VOX, the microphone/line input will
automatically be switched when a signal is sensed at the
microphone/line 2 input. For example, when someone
speaks into the microphone, other sound will either be
muted or ducked, depending on the setting of the
ducking level control at the rear of the unit. See
section 4.3.
4.1.3
en | 18
Additional microphones
(inputs 3 and 4)
Connect additional microphones to microphone/line
inputs 3 and 4 as required. See figure 4.2. These
microphones will mix with the background music.
Set the DIP switch settings for microphone/lines 3 and
4, as required. See section 4.3.
The Tel. emergency/70V input and Microphone/line
input 1 all have priority over the Microphone/line
input 2. Therefore, any signal received on any one of
these inputs will always be heard regardless of the
ducking level control setting for Microphone/line
input 2.
Set the DIP switch settings for microphone/line input 2
as required. See section 4.3.

Emergency inputs
The Tel. emergency/70V input, with VOX functionality,
is used for receiving emergency announcements or
signals (such as a fire alarm). This input has absolute
priority, and will overrule all inputs when an emergency
announcement or signal is received.
Either a telephone line or a 70 V input signal can be
connected to the Euro style pluggable screw terminal
connector (1) at the rear of the unit. See section 4.1.4.1
and section 4.1.4.2.
Caution
Never connect telephone lines and a 70 V signal
to the Euro style connector at the same time.
To adjust the volume of the emergency announcement
or signal, turn the rotary dial (2) at the rear of the unit.
For safety reasons, the volume of the emergency
announcement or signal cannot be set to zero.
Note
Tel. emergency input does not mute the
incoming signal so that an incoming pilot tone
will be fed to the zone outputs. With this feature
it is possible to use the mixer amplifier in a
Bosch Voice Alarm System when using end of
line boards (PLN-1EOL).
The signal that is delivered to the unit should be
quiet when a call is not made. The pilot tone and
frequencies below 300 Hz are filtered from the
trigger signal so that the input will not trigger
from a pilot tone or low frequency rumble.
4.1.4.1
Connecting 70 Volt input signal
Connect the 70 Volt input signal as shown in
figure 4.3.
The master volume control setting (5) does not influence
the volume setting of the emergency announcement or
signal.

4.1.4.2
Connecting telephone lines
Connect the telephone lines as shown in figure 4.4.
Caution
A connection to a telephone network must
always be made via a telephone coupler that
provides adequate isolation between the
telephone network (PBX) and the Plena system.
The telephone coupler must also meet all
relevant requirements for this type of
communication equipment as imposed by law
and/or responsible telecommunication
organizations in the country of use. Never try to
make a direct connection between the telephone
network and the mixer amplifier.

Music only
Use the music master output connector (8) to provide a
dedicated music out source for another device. For
example, the music master output can be connected to a
telephone coupler, so that callers can listen to music
when they are put on hold (see figure 4.6).
To select the dedicated music out source, set the internal
jumper. Only the music inputs (5, 6, and 7) will be
audible. All other inputs, including the Tel.
emergency/70V input will not be sent to this output.
To hear all mixed inputs (microphone/line, emergency,
and music) set the internal jumper.
Also see section 4.2.4 “Connecting speakers”.

Rotary control
Effect
Ducking level control Sets the required ducking level when VOX and/or
push to talk is active (see table 4.1). When the
ducking level is set to mute, the music volume will be
fully attenuated; when the ducking level is set to mix,
both music and speech inputs can be heard - music
and speech will be mixed. When ducking the music
input is ducked (attenuated), the microphone/line
inputs are always muted when a call is made.
Telephone
Attenuates the emergency announcement or signal.
emergency/70V
Control range from -25 dB to 0 dB. For safety
volume control
reasons, the volume of the emergency
announcement or signal cannot be fully set to zero.
en | 25
Typical example
Set the ducking level control to
mute if you want the
announcement to be heard without
background music.
Set the volume of the emergency
announcement to a higher level
when the system is being used in
large open areas.
Note
When PTT or VOX are selected, the ducking
control controls between 3 dB attenuation (very
little ducking) to –∞ dB (muted).
When ducking, the music is also present on the
Call only output. If you do not want this, set the
ducking control to mute.

Pin settings and labelling
Users can create custom labels for the: microphone/line
inputs, description of the music sources, and audio
output zones 1 and 2. These labels can be attached to
the mixer amplifier at position numbers 2 and 3 (see
figure 2.2). Colored pins can also be inserted at various
positions around the dial controls to indicate the favorite
settings for a particular application.
The pins are engineered in such a way that they cannot
be taken out by hand. This is to prevent tampering. The
pins are intended to be inserted once, during installation
of the unit. The silver pins should be used to indicate
the preferred settings of the unit. The red pins can
optionally be used to indicate the maximum setting of a
knob.
If these settings have to be changed, use a pair of softtipped pliers to carefully remove the pins. If you do not
have a pair of soft-tipped pliers, you can use ordinary
pliers instead, but first place some plastic tape on the
tips of the pliers to prevent damaging the front of the
unit.
To remove the clear plastic covers in front of the labels:
1 Carefully insert a small screwdriver into the cut-out
at the bottom of the plastic cover.
2 Gently lift the cover, and bend it in the middle. Take
care not to force the cover or the front panel.
To reattach the plastic covers with paper labels:
1 Insert the paper label into the holder at the front of
the unit.
2 Pick up the cover, and then bend it slightly in the
middle by hand.
3 Fit the cover into the slot at the front of the unit, and
then gently release the cover, making sure that the
paper label stays in place.

Tone control
The tone controls are not standard bass and
treble controls: they can be used as a traditional tone
control with high and low control, but also have a
powerful contour that addresses problems found in real
situations.
The tone control for the low frequencies boosts deep
bass first without making the sound boomy, and cuts
rumble without loosing warmth in the low frequencies.
Use the Hi (high) and Lo (low) tone controls (see
figure 5.1, numbers 4 and 10) to change the tone.
