HF Remote Control
1. Introduction
Welcome to the world of wireless remote controlling of show light!
The ADB HF Remote Control system provides remote control of most ADB desks from
wherever you are in your venue: on stage, in the auditorium, during rigging on ladders,
trusses,...
The compact and light-weight hand-held unit offers you wireless access to important
functions on your lighting desk:
• select individual channels and set a level
• select a group and set a level
• loading of a pre-recorded memory
• dimmer test
• play a pre-recorded macro
The compact and rugged unit is very easy to handle and allows fast and intuitive access
to many key desk functions to allow you to work efficiently on your lighting show.
This manual will describe how to get your HF Remote Controller up and running in a
minimum of time.
2. Unpacking - Delivery
Upon delivery of your equipment, open the packing carefully and examine the material.
If you observe any damage, contact the shipping company immediately, and have your
complaint duly recorded. You may rest assured that your equipment left the factory in
perfect condition.
Check whether what you have received is in conformity with the delivery notice, and
whether the notice is in conformity with your order.
In the event of any error, contact your shipper immediately to clarify the situation and
receive full satisfaction.
If you find nothing wrong, replace the material in the packing and store it in a warm place,
away from dust and humidity, whilst awaiting final installation.
Never leave the material on the worksite under any circumstance

3. Generalities - Safety
The equipment is built in accordance with European safety standards and requires
imperatively a safety earth connection in compliance with local regulations.
To prevent any risk of electric shock, do not remove any cover or part of the enclosure.
Access to internal parts is not required for normal operation.
Refer servicing to skilled and trained service personnel exclusively.
Disconnect from the power supply prior to opening for inspection or service.
Connection to any inappropriate power source may irreversibly damage the equipment,
it is the user's responsibility to use the equipment for its intended purpose and to check
the equipment connected to it.
To obtain full benefits of the safety measures, the equipment shall be installed and
serviced by skilled and trained personnel exclusively.
Don't make any modification to the equipment.
ADB shall not accept any liability for material damages or injuries which may result from
unauthorised modifications.
Important Notice for Power Cables
Power supply cables and connectors are an important part of your equipment and
contribute to its safety.
• always use original power supply adapters only! Using any other psu may cause
irreversible damage to the unit.
• always use an isolator, main circuit-breaker or main fuses to interrupt the link; never
pull on the cable
• do not damage the cable or the connectors in any way, check them at each
installation or at regular intervals in a permanent installation
• do not tie together power supply cables and signal cables

5. Installation
A full HF Remote Control system includes
• one handheld transmitter
• one active receiver unit
• a data cable
5.1. Interconnection
The interconnection is very straightforward:
• Use a standard SubD-9 extension cable to connect the Receiver to the serial port
of the lighting console. A short cable is included with the receiver. To manufacture
your own cable, see the wiring diagram in paragraph Data cable - wiring diagram
• Connect the active receiver unit to the EIA/RS-232 serial port of the lighting console
• Provide mains power for the receiver unit
EIA/RS-232 data cable max. 15 m

5.2. Activation in a lighting console with ISIS® software
As a precautionary measure, the factory default settings of the consoles disable external
control sources such as the HF Remote Control and External Lines. You can enable /
disable these external inputs with the General Configuration dialogue box.
Keystrokes
<MENU> <F7 {SET-UP}> <F3 {GENERAL}>
displays the General Configuration dialogue box
< > ... <ENTER>
activates the HF Remote by checking the box
<F8 OK>
confirms the operation and closes the dialogue box
5.3. Activation in a VISION lighting console with software v2.63
As a precautionary measure, the factory default settings of the consoles disable external
control sources such as the HF Remote Control and External Lines. You can enable /
disable these external inputs with the General Configuration dialogue box.
• in the menu CONFIGURATION, PERIPHERALS
• check the remote control option (Infra Red) checked (= ON)
If nothing else is specified, your system by default factory settings runs on EIA/RS-232 serial
communication port 1 (normally located besides the floppy drive).

7. Active receiver - LED indicators
The front panel of the receiver / active antenna features three LED indicators.
They show you
• On
power is On and the processor is working fine
• Connect
confirms communication between receiver and lighting desk
• Receive
a valid signal is received from the handheld remote
8. Handheld controller - Power switch
The handheld controller features 16 keys and 1 slide switch - the power switch. In order
to extend battery life, power is only required while transmitting i.e. while depressing a
key. The LED's in the keys will stay on for a few seconds. The slide switch is mainly used
as a safety against unwanted key presses while the unit is stored in a bag, a toolbox, or
your pocket.

9. Handheld controller - Changing the battery
Because of the often rough circumstances in which the handheld unit could be used, the
battery compartment is closed with two M3 screws. To replace the battery: remove the
two screws at the bottom, replace the battery with a fresh one and close the lid with the
same (M3 x 4 mm) screws. Please dispose of the used battery in an environmentally
friendly manner. Alkaline batteries are recommended.
10. Receiver - Automatic main fuse
The receiver is protected by an automatic self-resetting main fuse (PTC). To reset:
disconnect power and wait for 2 minutes.
11. Remote control in venues with several control
desks (Wi-Fi)
Since all HF Remote Controller systems transmit on the same radio frequency, you
cannot operate two HF Remote Control systems in the same HF environment. ADB's
Wi-Fi Remote Control however allows control of several ADB consoles in the same
venue. The Wi-Fi system is based on a Pocket PC with ADB Wi-Fi software, and one (or
more) Wireless Access Points. These are networked with the lighting consoles over the
Ethernet-for-lighting network. The system includes identification of the target console,
and WAP access protection by user ID and password.
12. Updating the firmware

13. Data cable - wiring diagram
The receiver and PC are connected by means of a standard (not crossed) DB-9
extension cable. A short cable is included with the unit. The receptacle on the Receiver
unit is a SubD-9F. If you wish to manufacture your own cable, then please note that only
three signals are required.
The EIA/RS-232 standard mentions a max. cable length of 15 m (50 feet), but longer
cable runs have been achieved using suitable data cable.
