For the most demanding listener, our 200 watt per channel amplifiers offer 1, 2, 3, 5, and 7 channel options. All of B & K ’s home theater amps are class A pre-driver with a class A-B mosfet output stage to supply even the most challenging speakers with massive amounts of driving current. Toroidal transformer power supply, computer grade capacitors, and discrete circuitry using 1% metal film resistors provide superior dynamics and sound quality. B & K , Simply Better! B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 1 2 CT Receiver Features and Benefits CT Receiver Features and Benefits Separates Performance The CT Receivers are born into the heritage of twenty years experience designing and building high current low distortion high-end separates. Every design, concept, and tested part, unifies the vision that critical listening happens when the music matters. It doesn't matter where you are or what room you are in. With a B & K Multi-Zone receiver, any room gets the solid deep bass, the warmth, and the transparency of B & K . Extraordinary preamplifier build quality using 1% Metal Film resistors and computer grade electrolytic capacitors lend the CT Reciever preamplifier section precision, linearity and dynamics that will reveal every detail your source components can provide. The ultimate reason to own B & K is the astonishing revolution in performance you'll enjoy. Available in 17” (standard) and 19” (rack mount) black or silver faceplates. Built-In Intelligence The CT Receivers work quietly behind the scenes to provide simple automation and flexibility for everyday living. Using unique Personal Action MacrosTM and B & K 's SmartZoneTM system, the CT Receiver instantly recalls your favorite settings without any additional external automation systems. The intelligence is built in. A Single Keypad in Each Room - Multi-Zone From One Central System The CT310/300 provides three independent listening Zones, the CT610/602 provides six. In each zone the user can freely select sources, raise and lower the volume, adjust the bass or the treble without affecting users in other zones! All the performance and ability that a dedicated stack of high-end separates would give a user in each room, without any of the visible clutter. The multi-zone receiver and all shared sources can be concealed in a cabinet or rack in one central location. Only a keypad need be seen in any zone! Connect Up to Nine Shared Sources More than any other single feature, the nine input capability frees the system architecture from restriction. Now, designs can include multiple CD changers or multi-output hard drives. Nine inputs enables your system to grow in the future and accommodate any new technology. Built-in IR routing allows any of the source components to be identical, yet still be controlled independently without problems. Video For The Entire House The CT Receivers incorporate a composite video matrix, delivering a pristine picture to every room in the house. One touch to your remote control or keypad enables you to select from up to ten video sources (nine shared and one dedicated to each zone). Twin AM/FM Tuners Allow Simultaneous Listening to Two Radio Stations The CT Receiver Family offers a combination of internal AM/FM tuner configurations. The CT610 and CT310 include two internal tuners. The CT602 also includes two internal tuners. The CT600 and CT300 include one internal AM/FM tuner. Six Dedicated Zone Inputs Each zone has its own dedicated local Audio/Video source input. This input can detect when a source is being played and automatically turn the zone on and/or switch from one of the nine shared sources. All the user needs to do is turn on the local source, simple! B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! CK1.2 Keypad Features and Benefits CK1.2 Keypad Features and Benefits Automation Everywhere! Keypads Automate the Central System with Local TVs and Components The CK1.2 keypad can accommodate control of up to twenty devices with four pages of custom labeled buttons per device. Each button can be programmed with a single IR command (pre-programmed from the database or learned) or it can be programmed with a macro of up to 190 steps (steps can include IR commands, delays of .1 to 99.9 seconds, and jumps to another page). A vast database of more than one thousand brands instantly programs IR Codes for most products. B & K Batch Learning does the rest in a fraction of the time of any other system. The CK1.2 also features RS-232 status feedback and input syncing for the zone in which it is operating. Macros can be programmed using the fastest macro programming method available, simply click on the button to make it a macro step. Once one keypad is programmed, the rest can be cloned by simply downloading to each keypad. Each keypad stores its program on an EEPROM so even if the power is lost, the memory is good for up to 10 years. Point Any Remote Control at the Keypad The integrated IR pass-through sends the commands of any IR remote control to both locally installed components and the central system. If your client wants to use a remote control in any room, they can simply point it at the B & K keypad. Status Feedback to Keypads RS-232 feedback from the CT Reciever to the keypads will keep the keypads in synchronization with the source that is selected. The keypad will stay in sync with the source that is selected, regardless of how it was selected (by a remote control, the front panel controls or the keypad itself). The keypads will also display zone status when the backlight button is pressed. Status feedback includes zone radio station or input name, volume, bass, treble and loudness levels. Additionally a 12VDC status signal lights up the Green Status LED whenever the zone is on. Multiple Keypads In One Zone Keypads can be used in a daisy chain application to accommodate up to 6 keypads per hardware zone. Any keypad has the ability to control any zone regardless of whether it is daisy chained (slaved) off another keypad. Slaved keypads are perfect for large rooms that require user interface at both ends. Keypads have successfully been tested up to 1000ft using CAT5-E cable.

B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! Installation Considerations Installation Considerations CAUTION RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK DO NOT OPEN Placement and Ventilation The CT Receiver incorporates built in power amplifiers and requires at least 3" of free air space above the unit. If built into a rack, please insert at least one rack space of vent panel immediately above the unit. Default Operation The factory default of a B & K CT Receiver is designed for simplicity and functionality right out of the box! Default settings will allow for simple functions such as zone power, volume control, input changing and video connections to be checked as soon as they are connected. No programming required! Connection Strategy Connecting a CT Reciever can be a daunting task at first glance. However, the secret to a great looking and easy to service installation is to be as deliberate as possible. Make the installation SERVICEABLE as well as neat! Dress the wires in groups according to purpose: ·AC Power lines tied together and attached to the cabinet/rack on the opposite side of the signal cabling. Any component without enough slack in the power wire to enable rotating it or extracting it should have its length extended with a dedicated extension cord. ·Speaker wires tied together and attached to the cabinet/rack on the opposite side of AC Power lines. ·Antennas should be routed so that they can be positioned later. ·IR emitters should be routed and tied down, but NOT attached to source components. Remember, emitter position is best done with the system powered up! Emitter wires can safely be run adjacent to AC Power cables. ·Combine Keypad/IR Sensor cables together with any Dedicated Zone Input cables that originates in another zone. Tie each Zone Control cable together with its dedicated source. Tie everything together; make sure there is a service loop of free cable and dress on the opposite side of the AC Power cables. ·Combine all cables coming from the sources, label each cable and connect them to the nine inputs. ·Combine all buffered outputs and connect to additional preamplifiers/receivers in the system. ·If you are utilizing any external power amps, combine the zone line outputs and connect to each amplifier in turn. Always leave enough slack in the ends of the cable so that the CT Receiver can be rotated in its shelf or pulled out of the shelf. Don't leave all the wires tied down so tightly that the components cannot be rotated or extracted from the rack without huge difficulty. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 11 12 Power Connections AC Power and Line Fuse Before connecting any cables, verify that the CT Receiver powers up. Check functionality of the receiver by connecting the AC power cord and powering on the receiver with the main power button. When the front panel display lights up, power the system down once it has finished the boot up process. Disconnect the AC power cord at the rear of the CT Receiver for safety. You can re-connect once the system connections are complete. If you need to check the fuse, follow this procedure: C AU T I O N : F O R C O N T I N U E D PROTECTION AGAINST RISK O F F I R E R E P L A C E O N LY W I T H S A M E T Y P E A N D VA LU E F U S E 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Power off the unit and unplug the power cord. Push up on the fuse release tab. Pull the entire fuse holder out. Remove the fuse from the fuse holder and measure the fuse with a meter. You cannot tell if it is blown by looking at it. Replace only with fuse of same value. CT Receivers use 12A Slow-Blow fuses for main A/C. Caution! A blown fuse is usually an indicator of an installation or service problem. If fuses continue to blow, call B & K Components Customer Service at 716-656-0026 or contact an Authorized B & K Service Center for assistance. Speaker Connections for CT Receiver The CT Receiver connects to speakers using 4 position plug-in Phoenix connectors.

Plug the RJ-45 plug into the adapter and screw the adapter in place on the phoenix plug. Be sure to match the labels on the CT back panel to the labels under the pins of the adapter. Additional keypads for any zone can be connected to the slave output on the keypad back panel. Keypads should be programmed in series order starting with the Master Keypad, then slave 1, etc... Each of the 5 terminals for the keypad control ports are defined as follows: Power Keypad / IR sensor Power for to Keypad/Sensor Common Common Ground RS-232 DataWay Output only RS232 One Infrared Data/Signal IR Data/Signal Input Programmable Control Out Output Programmable 12V Control +12VDC - Use this terminal to power the sensors and keypads for this zone. Each control card is limited to 1 amp capacity per three zones in each vertical array. See the next page for examples. GND - Use this terminal as a common ground for data, control and power. RS-232 XMIT - This terminal transmits RS-232 (BKC-DIP) information. This pin allows RS-232 status feedback to the CK1.2 keypad or other RS-232 capable devices. It can be configured with Tab 11 of BKcSuite. The CT Receiver cannot receive RS-232 via this terminal. DATA IN - This terminal is an OPTICALLY isolated IR data port feeding both the flasher port of the selected input (unless routing is set to ALL) and the B & K CT microprocessor for B & K commands. CTRL OUT - The 12VDC 200mA outputs are used to control external amplifiers, relays, screens or devices that activate when a voltage is detected. The default action is that the voltage is ON when the Zone is ON, OFF when the zone is off. This is controlled by going into the Advanced FULL Setup Tab 9 in BKcSuite. The 12VDC controls can be modified to the following choices: Zone On - The 12V Control Out is on if the corresponding Zone is on (This is Default). Zone Active - The 12V Control Out will turn on only if the Zone is on AND the CT Receiver can detect an audio or video signal on the selected input for that hardware zone. Zone Off - The 12V Control Out will turn on only if the corresponding hardware Zone is off. Selected Input - The 12V Control Out is on only if this input is selected (switched to) by the user. Note that when this option is selected the input check boxes, in BKcSuite, are active (no longer grayed out). Check the inputs that you want to turn on the Zone Control Out. Headphone - Only Zone A of a CT610 or CT310 allows you to set the Control Out to be triggered by headphone mode. Setting the Zone A Control Out to enables you to connect a separate Zone A power amp and still have it turn off automatically when the user selects headphone mode from a keypad or remote controlling Zone A. Note: Not all CT Receivers offer headphone jack. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 16 12V Power Supply Adding Additional Keypads in the Same Zone. When rooms are interconnected or are open to each other (for example: interconnecting family room, kitchen, and dining areas are common in many homes) you may opt to expand a zone to include several rooms. Many keypads can be connected in a daisy chain from the master keypad in that zone. The master is the keypad which is home run back to the CT Receiver. To daisy chain keypads, simply connect a CAT5 cable terminated into RJ-45 between the two keypads. All the chained keypads need be programmed separately . Daisy-chained keypads can be programmed for independent zone control using the appropriate code-set. The home run (master) keypad is connected using the MASTER [IN] on the keypad back panel. From the Master Keypad's SLAVE[OUT] connect to the second keypad's MASTER [IN]. You can continue the daisychain to as many as four keypads per zone control terminal. When programming daisy chained keypads, each keypad must be programmed separately. Always program chained keypads in series order starting with the Master keypad, then the first slave, etc. Slave Master POWER SUPPLY IS CURRENT LIMITED TO 1 AMP PER EVERY THREE ZONES The six zone receiver has two zone/controller cards, each is identical to the single controller card in a three zone receiver. Each card has its own independent 1 amp power supply with built in current limiting protection. You cannot draw more than 1 amp from each of the cards (a card is the vertical strip of zone and common control connections). The control outputs are current limited to 200mA. CT310/300 has one power supply card for keypads, IR sensors and 12VDC control outs. Anything connected to the +12V zone keypad output, a zone control out or a common control out must have its power consumption noted and added up. The total must not draw more than 1 amp for a CT310/300.

Up to nine sources can be "shared" throughout any zone in the entire system. Internal tuners in the CT receiver products do not utilize an input. Each of the nine shared sources should be connected as follows: CT Receiver Connection Plug the analog audio L&R composite video, and the IR emitter into the back panel. Mount the IR Emitter on the front panel, in front of the IR receptacle of the source. Source Use the analog audio and composite video from the source. The CT receiver(s) does not process any digital signals. Composite video and analog audio can be distributed throughout the system. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 18 IR Emitter Outputs IR Flasher Emitter Output Each of the nine shared sources can be controlled from any zone in the system using the CT Receiver built in IR routing circuitry. When the IR Flasher outputs are set to “selected input,” (Default) IR is routed from the keypads in each zone to the corresponding source according to the input selected for that zone. This way BUFFERED A/V SOURCE OUTPUTS ZONE LINE OUTPUTS multipleO Uidentical sourcesO Ucan be controlled Owithout changingOthe source's IR code. For the system to operT UT UT OUT T C 9 6 3 F ate properly, an IR emitter connected to the IR output must correspond to the source input, i.e. IN 6 with IR 6. The IR Ooutputs are compatible with any standard 1/8” (3.5mm) miniature flasher/emitter from Niles, Xantech, OUT OUT OUT UT OUT 8 B E 2 Elan, Sonance or Speakercraft, etc. The IR outputs operate at5 5V and can supply up to 10mA of current F M sure to use IR (475Ω internal output resistance).

LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT Buffered Outputs CT610 #2 CT610 #1 Sources B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! Line level, impedance matched, (buffered) outputs are provided in order to pass source signals from one unit to another. Each of the 9 shared A/V inputs has a buffered output. These outputs are buffered in order to minimize signal degradation as the signal passes from unit to unit in series. Essentially they can eliminate the need for Y-cables. The Buffered outputs will primarily be used for sharing of sources between other whole house units or home theater systems. 19 Zone Line Outputs Zone Line Outputs Zone line outputs are used to run the audio and/or video into each zone. Composite video outputs supply video to monitors in each zone. Zone A's video output provides access to the on screen display for unit setup. The setup menu is only accessible through composite video output of zone A. Line level audio outputs are supplied for each zone in order to provide a means for external amplification in any zone. These line outputs can be configured either fixed at line level, or variable to match the volume level of the receiver’s internal amplification (see next page). Factory default is set for line level fixed output. An external amplifier can be controlled with the 12VDC control out from the zone that it is connected to. When line levels are set to fixed, audio will continue to output regardless of the zone being off. An external volume control is needed for this application. The video signal will shut off when the zone is shut off. An example of external amplification and video connection in Zone A is provided below. Note that the amplifier control voltage is supplied directly from the Zone Control terminal on the CT Receiver back panel. If desired, this control voltage can be supplied from the back panel of the CK1.2 Keypad terminated to the Alternate Master [IN]. The figure below shows the fixed/variable jumper is set to fixed; the wall mounted volume controls will control the externally amplified speakers while the keypad selects the source for the zone. The Keypad controls the volume of the Zone A amp channel. CT602 CK1.2 Keypad Reference 200.2 Volume Controls Zone Speakers Fixed Output / Variable Output Changing Line Level Outputs From Fixed to Variable Variable Left Fixed An internal jumper is used to change the output between line level fixed or variable. This adjustment is typically useful when using additional external amplification. Open the chassis and locate the blue jumper on the audio card for the Zone Line Outputs. The jumpers are in line with each channel on the back panel. The right position is fixed (F) line level, the left position is variable (V) volume control. When set to variable the volume level of the output is matched with the volume level of the receiver amplifier output. The jumper has the ability to change only the left (L) or only the right (R) side of each zone if desired. Note: When these outputs are set to fixed, the last used source will continue to transmit audio only regardless of the zone being powered off. An external volume control is required for this application. VLF VRF Variable Right Fixed 20 Dedicated Source Inputs (Local) Dedicated source inputs are used for local sources that are dedicated only to that individual zone. Typically this feature is appropriate for sources that are physically located in the zone, such as DVD players or satellite boxes in bedrooms or dens. By running well shielded audio and video cable from the local source back to the CT Reciever, the user can utilize the auto-sense capability built into these inputs. The CT Reciever will immediately auto-detect the audio or video signal from a Dedicated input and switch that zone to its dedicated input. This feature is factory default set on, however it can be turned off to add an additional manually selectable input for that particular zone. Dedicated source inputs are identified on the back panel by the zone to which they are associated, i.e. IN A, IN B, etc. When sources are auto-detected, built in software stores the state the zone was in before the Dedicated input detected a signal, this way when the signal is switched off the zone is returned to its previous state. Dedicated inputs require a second audio/video home run home Ofrom the zone back Oto the CT Receiver. UT UT CT Receiver Dedicated Inputs (Back Panel) B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! D A IN D IN A IN E IN B IN F IN C 21 Local Source IR Control Local IR Source Control Local source control is accomplished by connecting IR emitters to the Alternate Master [IN] of the keypad. Local control is not limited to one source, as many as four IR emitters can be wired in series directly from the keypad. NOTE: Additional resistance will need to be added when running emitters directly from the keypad. Resistance will vary depending on the distance of the run and the size of the wire used. Typical in line resistance will range from 50Ω for long runs to 150Ω for short runs. 12V Control voltages for local amplifiers or other voltage sensing devices may also be terminated directly to the keypad’s Alternate Master [IN] using the 12V control and ground. If resistance is not added, control of shared sources may be lost. Multiple emitters should be connected in SERIES! Most common brands of emitter can be used, however all Emitter output more consistent levels when connected in series. Parallel connections may work “some of the time”. Series connections are recommended for consistent operation! Home run to CT back panel Standard 2 conductor 16 gauge speaker wire is ideal for long runs from the keypad to a Local TV or device using an IR emitter. Utilizing CAT 5 cable will also work well. Note: Additional resistance needs to be added when running a flasher directly off a keypad. Resistance will vary depending on length of run usually between Ω - 150Ω Ω). The resistor needs (50Ω to be wired in series with the flashers. This can either be on the + or - side of the connection. You will know if you need additional resistance if the keypad is not able to control the shared sources connected to any of the 9 IR outputs. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 22 Common Control Triggers Common Control Triggers The B & K CT receiver line incorporates common control triggers that can be used for whole house events such as telephones and doorbells. Two common controls on the six zone receiver (one on the three zone) allow up to 24VAC or DC voltage sensing. Referred to as Page/Events, typical applications might involve a doorbell and front door security camera. For example, when the doorbell is pressed, the CT receiver will switch all zones to the specified A/V source input that the camera is connected to. The user can specify which zones should or should not respond to either or both Page/Events. Wiring diagrams for specific applications are available through B & K . Please visit our website or contact our Customer Service Department for specific applications. The diagram below illustrates the installation of a front door security camera coupled with a doorbell.

B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 24 System Expansion System Expansion There are many ways to expand upon a CT system. The pages in this section will highlight simple methods for adding zones to a CT system. For some installations, simple back and forth IR communication will be needed, other installations will require the use of the CT-1. General guidelines for expanding a CT system are as follows: • If identical sources are being installed, a CT-1 will be required for system expansion. • If more than two receivers (CT and/or Theater) are to be linked, a CT-1 is required. • Any source can be shared between the CT system and a home theater system. • IR can be used as the communication interface or RS-232 can be used as the communication interface. Typically only one form is used. Both can be used to extract advanced features such as using Serial Macros. • IR will have an immediate response time, but IR is more prone to outside interference. RS232 could have a slower response time than IR, but it is more reliable. RS-232 will be used for unidirectional communication only. • A CT system is not limited to using one of the methods described. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 25 Connecting Two CT Receivers Coupling Two CT Receivers - Maximum 12 Stereo Zones Two CT Receives can be coupled together using IR for some simple installations. The following diagram depicts a system for up to 12 stereo zones, with NO identical sources, and two-way communication. IR is simply being allowed to flash both receivers regardless of which keypad generates the IR command. All keypads can be programmed using the code-set 128. Whole House control (code 000) as well as control of any zone, from any zone is also possible. The flasher outputs for this configuration need to be set to “ALL INPUTS”. IR output number nine is used to pass IR from the back panel of one CT Receiver to the front panel of other CT Receiver. Tab nine of BKcSuite is used to configure the flasher settings. Be sure the Front Panel to IR Flasher is set to “NO” (Default Setting). Attach to front panel of #2. CT610 #1 CT610 #2 Attach to front panel of #1.

A swap cable will connect between the primary receiver’s RS-232 XMIT (Transmit) port and the RJ-45 jack of the subsequent receiver(s). Data will transmit in one direction only. A swap cable should not be connected between RJ45 jacks. Additional CT Receivers can be added in a chain. RS-232 data will transmit in one direction only. To simplify the installation, use the RJ45 to 5 position phoenix adapter, see page 8. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 26 Adding a 7th Zone Adding a 7th Zone Using The AVR507/505/50 Second Zone Sometimes a simple seventh zone is needed for a CT install. If a B&K Home Theater is also being installed, then the independent second zone can be used for the audio/video switching. Amplification must be provided for the seventh zone. B & K manufactures two channel amplifiers capable of 55 watts per channel,125 watts per channel or 200 watts per channel. Control of the Home Theater is accomplished by means of a RS-232 Swap cable. See page 27 for swap cable construction. The CT Receiver flashers should be set for “ALL INPUTS” (Tab 9 BKcSuite). The keypad for the seventh zone should be slaved off of the closest keypad to the seventh zone. The keypad for the seventh zone should be programmed specifically with the code-set 002. Code 002 is default for a B&K Home Theater second zone. See figure below for connection diagram. Status feedback for the seventh zone will not be possible because the zone is actually located in the Home Theater processor/receiver. The keypad will be connected to the CT Receiver. However, status feedback will still appear on the keypad for the zone the keypad is slaved from. To alleviate confusion, the status feedback to the seventh zone keypad should be disabled. To do so, the keypad transmit ID of the CT Receiver should be changed. On tab 13 of BKcSuite, change the Keypad Transmit ID to 254(FE). When programming the keypads for zones 1-6, set the keypad ID to 254(FE) in the Ck1.2 Keypad editor. You may still program each keypad using code-set 128 for zones 1-6. Set the Keypad ID for keypad in the seventh zone to 253(FD). OR cut the RS-232 wire going to the seventh zone keypad.

A single CT-1 can integrate control for up to three CT Receivers, one B&K Home Theater preamplifier/receiver, nine shared sources and one CK1.2 Keypad. The CT-1 uses IR as the communication interface between units, it can also pass RS-232 for control of a Home Theater piece. Should future expansion be desired, a CT-1 easily allows additional CT Receivers to be added to the whole house system. Up to 11 CT-1 IR Integrators can be combined to accommodate 21 CT Receivers or 126 zones. The CT-1 can be thought of as the common hub for IR control of the entire CT system. Each source is connected directly to the CT-1 along with any CT Receivers installed in the system. All zones will have the ability to control all nine sources when the CT-1 is used.

Any of these products can be combined to share sources in a CT system. Depending on which form of control communication you wish to use (IR or RS-232), B&K can accommodate either or both. Typically only one form of communication is needed, however for some advanced installations, both forms may be required. The following diagrams depicts both IR or RS-232 being used to control the home theater product. The CT-1 allows an easy method to interface between a home theater and a whole house distribution system. Once a B&K home theater is added to the system, the theater becomes a sub-system of the main CT system. You are making the theater a CT zone. IR Code-sets work consistently with the home theater line as they do with the CT line. Code-set 001 is used for zone 1, code-set 002 is used for zone 2. Typically you should use the RS-232 connection method because RS-232 will not pick up outside interference such as plasma or fluorescent light. An RS-232 swap cable does not need to be installed when using the CT-1. The illustrations below will also allow for sources that are only used in the theater zone. Control of those sources is maintained through the theater keypad or IR sensor. Set the DIP switches accordingly. Refer to the CT-1 manual for more detailed information regarding the CT-1. You may not need both forms of communication connected, only connect what you need. IR = 1/8” mono mini jack RS-232 = CAT5 straight through cable The Home Theater sensor plug (three position phoenix) can be used either for a Keypad (CK1.2) or for an IR sensor located in the theater room. RS-232 XMIT ports on the CT Receiver back panel are outputs only. RS-232 Data (BKC-DIP) can be obtained from any zone RS-232 XMIT pin. If all keypad ports are being used by keypads, the RS-232 data, 12VDC power, and GND can be obtained from the SLAVE OUT RJ-45 jack (PINs 5, 1, & 3 respectively) on the panel of the CK1.2 Keypad. Simply run a three position wire (or extra CAT5) to the nearest keypad. IR Connection RS-232 Connection CT-1 CT-1 B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! System Expansion Using a Swap Cable to Control a Theater To simply add a B&K home theater to a CT distributed audio system, a swap cable will provide control functions such as power, input, volume, etc. The buffered outputs from the CT Receiver will provide the analog audio and composite video signals from any shared source. The definition of a swap cable can be found on page 27 of this manual. A swap cable in this example will provide one-way communication from the CT Receiver to the Home Theater receiver/processor for BKC-DIP messages. *The REF 50 does not generate RS-232 (BKC-DIP) messages.

Make sure all other applications which use the serial port are closed before opening the taskbar. B & K has the capability to connect in real-time (live) to any of our receivers or preamplifiers. However, it is recommended that all setup be done virtually to avoid system errors. Once the setup files have been created, connect to the unit and open the saved files. Typical PC setup should follow the described procedure: 1. DO NOT CONNECT UNIT TO COMPUTER. This is considered virtual mode. Open BKcSuite A/V Setup from BKTask. Click Here! 2. When Tool Suite is first opened, the Device Investigator automatically scans to find a connected B & K product. Choose “select product for operation without a connected device.” 3. Choose the product you wish to work with. 4. Create and save the system setup file using either the Basic Setup menu or the Advanced Setup menu of BKcSuite. 5. Connect the PC to the B & K product and establish a live connection by running the device investigator. Device Investigator 6. Once a live connection has been established, open the file previously created. Once the file is opened, it will overwrite the settings in the B & K product with the settings configured in the setup file. Note: While a live connection is established with a CT Receiver, any changes made in BKcSuite will immediately update inside the unit itself. The system file should be saved on your computer as a backup. System settings are normally stored with a .bks extension (Advanced and Basic setup) while presets are stored with .bkp extension (Preset editor) and macro files are stored with a .bkm extension (RS-232 Macro Editor).

It is meant for streamlined setup of basic systems operating with B & K keypads. Tab 1 in the Basic menu allows users to name zones, configure power on preferences, and name sources. Tab 2 is provided to set up a keypad for RS-232 feedback syncing. Tab 2 tells the CT Receiver where devices are located on the keypad so the zone input syncing will operate properly. Match each input with the it’s corresponding location on the keypad. When a file is saved to the PC in the Basic Menu, both a .txt and .csv file are created in the same directory. These files create keypad button layout templates based off the locations of the devices assigned in Tab 2. These files can later be used for reference when creating keypad files in the keypad editor. The following figure details what Tabs 1 and 2 can be used for in the Basic Setup Menu of BKcSuite: B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! Advanced Setup Menu Advanced Full Setup Menu The advanced setup menu in BKcSuite is designed with the intention of displaying the features found in the on screen setup menu using thirteen defining tabs. Each tab allows the user to customize different features found within the CT Receiver. Setup should proceed in the numerical order of the tabs. Remember, it is always best to save frequently. BKsSuite should be updated regularly using the Live update feature found in the BKTask window. Advanced Full Setup Typically, choose to save settings with the customer’s last name and a date or revision number. It is usually best to save all of your files in one directory.

Since a CT610/602 has six hardware zones, BKcSuite will display a zone button corresponding to each of the six zones. (If you are programming a CT310/300, three zone buttons appear). Select the zone you wish to adjust the settings of. 1 2 2. You may set Zone A to stereo or mono as required. When stereo is selected, the form will appear as shown to the left. If mono is chosen, the Zone A form will change its appearance to the mono version as shown to the left. 2 The form displays new choices for the split mono zone. The right or left side may configured fixed or variable or may have volume limits set. The changes made in the Hardware Zone setting Tab affect amp channels only. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! Hardware Zone Settings 3. Fixed or Variable Levels for Stereo Zones 3 4 5 This setting dictates the configuration for the amplifier. The Variable assignment will allow speakers connected to the Zone Speaker Outputs to be controlled using an IR keypad or remote control. Selecting the Fixed assignment is available for external rotary type volume controls. 4.Maximum Level (Limits the Output whether Fixed or Variable) Each zone can have the volume limited to a particular maximum level. Adjust the slide bar to limit the maximum volume level for each zone. When the zone is set to fixed, slide the bar to the desired fixed volume level. You may click on the volume number to enter the volume manually. 5. Left and Right Level Calibration Normally these levels are left untouched. However, you can adjust the speaker balance for this zone permanently here. A B A. Fixed or Variable Levels for Mono Zones Each Mono zone can be set Fixed or Variable. Variable is selected for a zone controlled by a remote control or keypad. Fixed is for rotary knob volume control zones. This fixed or variable selection is applicable to the amp channels only. Does not apply to the line level pre-outputs. A B B. Maximum Level for the Mono Zone (Fixed or Variable) Each zone can have the volume limited to a particular maximum level. Adjust the slide bar to limit the maximum volume level for each zone. When the zone is set to fixed, slide the bar to the desired fixed volume level. Tip: Set the Max Level to -6dB. This will prevent the amplifier from clipping on most CD's. Tuner Assignment Assign a tuner for each zone by clicking the appropriate button. Once a tuner is assigned to a zone, that zone will always use that tuner. When multiple zones are assigned to the same tuner, the tuner will act as a shared source. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 39 40 Sub-Zoning Splitting a Zone To Mono Once a zone has been split into mono it has the ability to have a discrete IR Code-Set assigned to it and therefore the user is given the capability to control volume, mute, and power in the split zone independently. For more information on Code-Sets, see the section labeled Groups/Code-Sets/Zones. The Installation diagram of a mono zone split for control is illustrated below. The split mono zone will still share the same source, bass, treble and loudness levels. Master Bath Master Bed CT610/602 In this example, the master bath and master bedroom split a zone into two mono zones. Each must listen to the same source, but volume and on/off states are independent via the two keypads. The keypads are daisy chained to the same zone control terminal. The CT Receiver must be setup to respond to the discrete CodeSet for each mono zone. Furthermore, the corresponding Code-Set should be programmed onto the keypad. Thus, the Master Bath keypad will affect only the Master Bath and the Master Bed keypad will affect only the Master Bed. When keypads are slaved off of one another, programming should be done in series order starting with the master keypad, then slave 1, etc. One or both of these keypads can also have the ability to control both zones together as a suite. The alternative to mono split zones is to assign the the master bed and master bath to separate independent zones. See next section for Code-Set description. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 41 Code-Set Description and Overview Code-Set Description and Overview B & K uses discrete code-sets to control any or all of its audio/video zones. Code-sets range from code 0-0-0 (zero zero zero) to 1-2-8. This is the same practice that satellite manufacturers use so that one remote controller could control three identical satellites. The satellites are first set (via switches or on-screen menus) to be either an A, B or C satellite. When the remote control is set to SAT A, only SAT A responds and so on. In the advanced setup menu of the CT Receiver Code-Sets are assigned to control each zone. B & K applies this theory to each of its zones. Once the codes have been assigned, functions like lowering the volume in Junior's room from the Kitchen keypad is possible. Code-Sets can also control a group of zones (such as upstairs or party modes) or control the whole house (all zones) using Code-Set 0-0-0. In a basic default system, all keypads are pre-programmed with Code-Set 1-2-8. The CT Receiver monitors which one of the six Zone Control terminals the IR command was received from and responds only in that zone. Thus, as long as each keypad is hard wired to the correct Zone Control terminal, all keypads can be programmed identically using code 1-2-8. However, the user can be provided with powerful convenience features by utilizing discrete Code-Sets to enable any keypad to control any zone, any group of zones or the whole house. The front panel will not respond to Code Set 1-2-8 received from a remote control. B & K created 128 different sets of the same CT Receiver commands. These commands will also work with B & K home theater units assigned to the same code set. The primary commands are as follows: Power State Tone ZONE POWER ON POWER OFF BASS BASS + TREBLE TREBLE + LOUDNESS Volume MUTE ON MUTE OFF STEREO/MONO MUTE (TOGGLE) MASTER VOL+ MASTER VOL- Input Sources SOURCE + SOURCE VIDEO SOURCE + DEDICATED IN INPUT 1 INPUT 2 INPUT 3 INPUT 4 Tuner INPUT 5 INPUT 6 INPUT 7 INPUT 8 INPUT 9 TUNER AM FM BAND TOGGLE TUNE TUNE + STATION STATION + *This list is not a complete list of commands. For a complete list please refer to page 7 of this manual. Each code-set differs from the next only in the initial IR code identification or prefix, i.e. 128 - Power On. This way a CT Receiver zone can be setup to recognize an intended command no matter what Zone Control terminal the command is received from. Thus, any zone can control any other zone (or group of zones) by programming a remote control or a keypad with the appropriate set or sets of codes from the following choices: Code Code Code Code Set Set Set Set 000 Controls ALL zones simultaneously. (Multi Zone and Home Theater) 001-127 Can be utilized for group or independent zone operation. (Discrete) 128 Controls only the zone it is connected to or received from. (Hardware Specific) 999 Controls a set of B & K ALL commands (Multi Zone and Home Theater) B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 42 Groups / Code Sets / Zones - Tab 2 1. Groups: You can program a maximum of 18 groups for each CT Receiver labeled a - r for your reference only. Group 0 cannot be changed, it is pre-programmed with code-set 0-0-0 (controls ALL CT Zones). Each group can control any or all zones within one CT Receiver. If multiple CT’s are going to utilize the same code for a group spread across multiple CT Receivers, that code-set must be programmed into each CT receiver. 2. Code-Sets: For each group, assign a code-set between 001 and 127. B & K recommends the following: in the first CT610 assign Code-Sets 011 to 016 to each individual zone A-F. When working with a system with more than one CT, assign code sets 021 to 026 to the second CT, 031 to 036 to the third and so on. 3. Title: Name the group (zone) with a name that will make sense to the client. If the group controls just one zone, name it for that zone. If it will control several zones, name it intuitively for the area it controls. 4. Hardware Zones: Work by row, check the boxes for zones that will make up each group. In the figure above, code 0-1-7 has been assigned to control zones A, B, and C while codes 0-1-1 through 0-1-6 control each zone individually . ID128 should never be used for group control. It should only be used from a keypad or remote to control a zone. 5. Absolute/Relative: These settings decipher how volume will be controlled among zones grouped together. Absolute will sync all volumes to the volume level of the zone from which the volume command was received before adjusting up or down. Relative control will adjust volume levels up or down without syncing to the same volume level. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 43 When a zone is split to mono, two columns of check boxes appear representing the right and left channel of the split zone. Splitting a zone to mono allows independent ability to control power and volume on each side of the zone. The left or the right channel can then be controlled with a discrete code-set from the keypad, or from an external volume control (in wall). If an in wall volume control is desired, set the desired side of the zone to Fixed volume in Tab 1. A split mono zone can utilize 3 different Code-Sets if variable volume control is desired; one code-set for the left side, one code-set for the right side and one code-set to control both sides together as a suite. Check the desired side of the zone corresponding to the Code-Set it will be controlled by. Regardless of how this is set, this split mono zone will always listen to the same input. When the input is changed for one side of the mono zone, the input will be changed for the other side as well. Bass, Treble and loudness will be shared between the split mono zone at the same level. In the example above, the Master Suite is served using three groups. Each adjoining room can be adjusted without affecting the others by using keypads or remote set to Code-Sets 018 and 019. However, when a keypad uses Code-Set 014, both rooms within the Master Suite will be adjusted together. Notice absolute volume is selected in order to sync the volumes at the same level when the suite is controlled as one zone. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 44 Input Settings - Tab 3 1 3 2 1. Shared Source Input Names: Title each input with a user friendly name (up to a 5 letter name). Inputs 1 through 9 can be selected in every zone, thus they are shared inputs. This is the same name that will display on the keypad when zone status is recalled by pressing the backlight button on the CK1.2 Keypad. 2. Dedicated Source Input Names: Dedicated inputs are identified by the letter of the zone to which it is assigned. Title each input with a user friendly name (up to a 5 letter name). Each dedicated zone input can only be selected from its zone. Use the space bar to make it blank. 3. Input Settings To Compensate Levels: Since some sources output levels are louder or softer than others, use the input level adjustments to compensate. Adjustments of up to +/- 6dB is available for each source and tuner. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! Power On Titles - Tab 4 Power-On titles will only appear on the front panel of a CT610 or CT310 only. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 45 46 Power-On Preferences - Tab 5 1 2 4 3 Power-On preferences describe a specific state in which a zone or group of zones will power on every time the zone or group is powered on. 1. Select Code Set: All of the Code-Set #'s that were programmed previously appear on this list with their names. On this tab, program what will happen when each Code-Set is used to power on a zone or group of zones. 2. Select Power On Setting: Set the Power On Preferences for the Audio Input, Video Input, Volume, Bass, Treble, Loudness, AM Frequency, FM Frequency and/or FM Stereo. 3. Last Used: When powered on, the zone (or group of zones) responding will return the way it was turned off, its “last used” state. For example, if the volume was left at a high level when powered off, the group will power back on at the same level. 4. Power On Preference: When powered on, the zone (or group of zones) responding to this Code-Set will go to this selected setting. Specific volumes or radio stations, bass, treble and loudness may be chosen as power-on preferences. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 47 Input Configuration - Tab 6 1 2 3 4 5 3 2 1. Select the Zone Dedicated Input you wish to setup. 2. Video No / Yes: If “NO” is selected, the CT Receiver will keep the video input selection from the last selected video source. 3. Input Mode: Mono or Stereo - Select the best mode for the source connected to this Input. When set to mono, the right and left input signals are summed. 4. Selection Mode: Manual or Auto - When using Auto, the CT Receiver will select the source and/or turn the zone on if EITHER audio or video is sensed at the dedicated source input. When using auto-sense to detect an input signal, the CT Receiver will “remember” the previous state of the zone. Once the dedicated input signal is switched off the zone will return to its previous state. If desired, the auto-sensing feature my be turned off by selecting “Manual”. The dedicated input may be selected at any time using the IR command “D-IN” from the B & K IR database. 5. Release Time: Dictates how long the the auto-sense feature will wait before releasing the dedicated input (1- 25 seconds or Forever). Use forever (bar to the right) if you don't want the Input to change until the user manually selects a new input. If the source you are sensing has a video output, set to 5 seconds or less. If the source is audio only, use 25 seconds so that a quiet passage in the music will not release the input prematurely. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 48 Page / Event - Tab 7 1 2 A Page/Event is an action triggered by a 1-24VAC or DC trigger (Common Control), RS-232 command, or Audio Video Sense. 1. Action: When this Event is triggered, choose between switching to one of the nine shared sources, changing the volume or no action at all (OFF). When one of the nine shared inputs is selected, both volume level and input will be affected when the Page/Event is triggered. To only adjust volume level during a Page/Event choose “Change Volume.” Note: The Page/Event default setting is (BOTH), all zones will be affected by both Page/Events. Page/Event 1 will switch to input 8, Page/Event 2 will switch to input 9. However, you can override this on TAB 9 of BKcSuite, in the Zone Page/Event selection box shown below. (From Tab 9) 2. Activated By: Select the desired application to determine when the Event is ACTIVE. If you select Audio or Video Sensing, an audio or video signal coming in to the selected input (the selected input in the previous step) will trigger the Event as long as signal is present. If Common Control is selected, then a voltage must be present at the Common Control 1 IN+ and IN-. If you select RS-232, the event will be triggered and ended by RS-232 command strings. When using RS-232, the event must be asserted and deasserted. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! Page / Event - Tab 7 3 4 5 6 3. Level: Set the Volume desired for this event. When the event is triggered, the volume will be switched to this level in any zone set to respond to the page/event. Built in intelligence "remembers" the previous state the zone was in before the Page/Event occurred thereby returning the zone or zones to their previous state. 4. Turn Off Delay: Adjust the time for which the Page/Event will remain on. If a voltage is momentarily sensed, the Page/Event will last for the time selected. The Page/Event will stay active as long as a voltage is preset, the timer starts from the time the voltage is dropped. Use Forever (slide bar all the way to the right) if you don't want the event to end until the user manually selects a new input or a new volume setting. If using Audio or video sensing, adjusting the delay will affect how long the CT will wait before terminating the event once the signal is lost. 5. Event Affects Control Out and Flasher Outputs: Yes - When the event activates, the flasher outputs will change their routed location to the output designated by the page/event input selection. Control outputs would also be triggered for specified inputs. No - The control and IR flashers will stay in the last selected state. Thus, if the client were just watching a DVD, they may still use the DVD remote to pause the DVD. (Default set NO). 6. Page Event 2: Sets up in the same way as Page/Event 1. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 49 50 Display - Tab 8 Note: Display setup for a CT610/310 only. 1. Front Panel Brightness: Select Off, Dim, Medium or Bright from the list box. When set to OFF the display will turn on briefly when a change occurs and then revert back to off. 2. Individual Zone Display: For each zone, decide whether the front panel should display changes from that zone as they occur. If all zones are set to ON, the front panel display will change every time any zone receives an IR command. Note: If Zone A is set to NO, the On Screen Menu will not be accessible. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 12V Control - Tab 9 1 2 1. Zone Control: Click one of the zone buttons A thru F to setup control settings for the desired zone. 2. Zone Control Out: Control Out is a switchable 12VDC 200mA control voltage useful for status lights on keypads, power strips, external amplifiers or any other voltage sensing device. The default setting of each of the individual Zone Control Output is Zone ON - the voltage turns on only when that particular Zone is on and turns off when the zone is off. RS-232 - If you select RS-232, only an RS-232 command will turn on or off that zone's Control Out. Zone On - The Control Out is on if the zone is on and off when zone is off. (This is Default). Zone Active - The Control Out will turn on only if the zone is on AND the CT Receiver can detect an audio or video signal on the input the zone has selected. Zone Off - The Control Out will turn on only if the zone is off. Selected Input - The Control Out is on only if this input is selected (switched to) by the user and the zone is powered on. Note that when this option is selected, the input check boxes are now active (no longer grayed out). Check the box next to the inputs that are desired to turn the 12VDC Zone Control Out on. The input does not have to have a A/V signal present in order for the 12VDC trigger to be on. Headphone*: Only Zone A allows you to set the Control Out to be triggered by Headphone mode. Setting the Zone A Control Out to headphone enables you to connect an external Zone A power amp and still have it turn off automatically when the user selects headphone mode from a keypad or remote which is controlling Zone A. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 51 52 IR Flasher Settings - Tab 9 Zone Rear Data In Setting: Allows the IR data input port for each zone control terminal to be switched off. When set to OFF, any keypads or IR sensors connected to the back panel the CT Receiver will be rendered inoperable because no IR will be allowed to pass through the IR data input for the selected zone. Flasher Outputs: Selected Input - If IR routing is desired, set this to Selected Input. When IR routing is enabled, IR will route from the keypad control terminal IR Data input to the appropriate IR output according to input selected for each zone. All Inputs - If simultaneous flashing is desired set to All Inputs. Any IR data received from the keypad control terminals will be sent to all 9 IR outputs. Off - All 9 IR outputs will be turned off. Front Panel IR to Flasher Outputs: If Front Panel IR to Flasher Outputs is set to YES, any IR received by the front panel will pass through the CT Receiver to the flasher outputs. Otherwise when set to NO, IR commands received will only stay internal to the unit. Regardless of this setting B & K will always respond to its own IR commands. The default is set to NO because of possible optical interference. Optical feedback occurs when infrared interference from the sun or a light fixture is present or a sensor and an emitter/flasher are very close together. If you need to relay IR commands from the front panel of the CT Receiver to a component that is hooked to a rear panel flasher output, select YES and test operation. There are two possible problems you may run into: 1. Optical Feedback - Symptom: intermittent operation. To cure the feedback you must put blocking covers on all of the flasher/emitters near the front panel of the CT Receiver. Do not attempt to block IR with black electrical tape; it is generally transparent to IR. Niles, Xantech and Elan emitters have blocking methods to help deal with potential interference. 2. Wrong Carrier - Symptom is no or intermittent operation. To verify this, first contact the manufacturer and check on the carrier frequency of the original remote control. If it is not between 32kHz and 42kHz, you may not be able to use the B & K front panel IR sensor. For example, the B & K front panel IR sensor is probably not compatible with RCA or Proscan products with 56k carrier frequencies. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! Security - Tab 10 1 2 3 4 1. Front Panel Buttons: When you disable the front panel buttons, the only button that still has any affect is the master power ON/OFF switch. A touch of any other button brings the word "Locked" to the display. 2. Front Panel IR: Disabling the front panel IR prevents B & K IR commands from affecting internal operation, but will still pass IR through to the IR outputs. It also does not prevent source IR from reaching the rear panel flashers. 3. Memory Locked: This will prevent the user from saving any changes to presets or system settings. 4. Setup Menu Visible: If set to Hidden, the user cannot access the setup menu. T ip - Advanced Button Press to Unlock Security Settings Should you be at a job site without a PC and the CT Receiver has locked or hidden menus, you can use this advanced button press to access the security menu. The advanced button press will work even if the front panel buttons are DISABLED! CT610/310 - Press and hold down simultaneously and release the Sleep, Down and Up buttons. The security menu will be displayed both on the front panel of the unit and through the Zone A On Screen Display. CT602/300: Since the CT602/300 has no front panel buttons, please perform the following to unlock the Security Settings. 1. Cold boot the unit, ( hard power on) 2. Wait 12 seconds for initial power up sequence to finalize. 3. Within the next 15 seconds hold the ENTER button for 5 seconds on the remote. Security menu will appear through the Zone A video output. **Your "window of opportunity" is only available immediately after hard power up** B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 53 54 RS-232 Communication - Tab 11 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 For detailed information on BKC-DIP and RS-232, please refer to the documentation folder located in [c:/program files/B & K Components Ltd/BKcSuite/documentation] or visit our website at www.bkcomp.com. 1. RS-232 Port Enable: When disabling the RS-232 port, RS-232 strings will be neither transmitted or received through the main RJ45 jack. This is useful for troubleshooting multiple components and can only be done through the on screen display (OSD) menu. Default the RS-232 port is enabled. 2. Baud Rate: B & K does not recommend using any baud rate other than 9600. The default baud rate is 9600. If different Baud rates other than 9600 are used, Keypad status feedback and syncing will be lost. 3 & 4. RS-232 Receive & Transmit ID: This is the identifier in B & K RS-232 protocol that allows B & K to “listen” (receive ID) or “talk” (transmit ID) to other B & K products. Change this identifier if you are using an external automation system to control more than one B & K products. It does not have to be the same value as the Transmit ID, just note what you use. For instance, if you wanted to send a Reference 50 preamplifier an IR triggered RS-232 macro (to power off the Reference 50) from a CT Receiver, you would set the Transmit ID of the CT Receiver to 1, the Receive ID of the Reference 50 to 1, the Transmit of the Reference 50 to 0 and the Receive ID of the CT Receiver to 0. These values do not need to be changed if a CT-1 is used to integrate multiple CT products. Note - If you change the Receive or Transmit ID, it does not affect setup with BKcSuite. 5. RS-232 Echo Enabled: This setting is for those with external control systems talking to B & K components via RS-232. Echo will repeat any RS-232 transmission received through the main RJ-45 receive port. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! RS-232 Communication 6. RS-232 Feedback Selection (Continuous Reply): Disabled (Default)= No BKC-DIP Update or Reply is generated. Update = A change affecting a logical zone from the Front Panel or B & K IR generates an update message representing the specific Front Panel button or B & K IR command. The CT receiver must then be polled to determine the current status. Reply = When set to “REPLY”, the CT Receiver will automatically generate BKC-DIP reply messages to allow unsolicited continuous feedback to an external controller. Whenever a change is executed in a logical zone and the Reply feature is enabled, a BKC-DIP reply message will be automatically generated representing the new state of the affected logical zone. I.e. System changes to Volume, Bass, Treble, Loudness, Source and/or Tuner Frequency. For more information, please see CT610_20004.pdf note 35 of system parameters, located in the documentation folder of BKcSuite. Typical format example of a BKC-DIP Reply : An example BKC-DIP Reply message the CT Receiver will automatically generate whenever a master volume change is seen in Logical Zone 11 is (0,R,P0B=FF,1=60;). Logical Zone 11 current Preset Parameter Volume value is set to 60 hex or 0dB (assumes 0dB is the current setting). “0” is the transmit ID “R” is the BKC-DIP Reply message. “P0B=FF” is the BKC-DIP command for the current preset in logical Zone 11 (B=11). “1=60” is the current preset parameter 1 (Volume), is set to the Hex value 60 (volume 0dB ). All (Both) = Outputs both a BKC-DIP Update and Reply message. 7. V2.0 Enabled: Not applicable to the CT610/602/310/300. 8. Convert IR to BKC-DIP Messages: When enabled (checked), the CT Receiver will convert and repeat the B & K IR commands received into RS232. The RS-232 message is repeated out the main RJ-45 jack. This can be used for systems with B & K home theater components to relay IR commands to the connected home theater without IR loops. 9. Transmit BKC-DIP to Zones: When a zone is enabled (checked), the CT Receiver will repeat any BKC-DIP messages via that zone's RS232 port (labeled “RS232 XMIT” on the CT back panel). When a zone is disabled (unchecked), the zones RS-232 port will not repeat auto BKC-DIP commands through it’s transmit port. Zone status feedback zone input syncing, and serial macros will continue to operate for any zone regardless of the zone’s RS-232 XMIT being disabled. The Serial Macro Editor specifies the zone ports the macros will transmit from. 10. BKC-DIP Transmit ID: Select what ID # you are using for your home theater, or select Global (All). If you select Global, (ALL) Connected B & K products will be controlled. However, if you select the ID# of a specific B & K product, only that product will be controlled. This is useful if several B & K products are interconnected for other purposes. The transmit ID # corresponds to the receive ID you used in the setup process of the Home Theater component. See page 60 for additional information about RS-232 communication. **Note: Whenever ANY multiple BKC-DIP commands are used in succession from an external source, the following BKC-DIP command must be affixed to the beginning of the command string: (0,S,I,80=6D;)(rest of macro.....) B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 55 56 Preset Operation - Tab 12 1 2 3 1. Recall Volume In Preset: If set to YES all of the presets you program will recall the saved volume setting. If set to NO, none of your presets will change the volume. When you recall a preset, the volume will stay the same. 2. Auto Naming: If set to YES, the CT Receiver will auto name a new preset for source and volume setting. If NO, the user must name the preset or retain the previous name. 3. Favorite Preset Recall: Favorite presets are accessed using the B & K Channel Up and Channel Down Commands. There are two modes of operation available. If set to Enter Button Required, the user taps Channel Up and/or Down until the favorite Preset they want is displayed on the Front Panel, then it is required to tap the Enter button to recall the preset. The second option is to set the presets to Automatically Recall, that way a user can tap the channel up or down button and the preset will automatically recall. Automatic Recall is Default. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! Keypad Feedback - Tab 13 In the advanced setup tab 13, you can set the keypad feedback positions more precisely than in Basic Setup. Keypad input feedback is triggered upon the acknowledgment of an input change from a zone or group of zones. When a zone is powered on or the input is changed, the keypad will jump to the page corresponding to the input the user has selected. This is useful for multiple keypad connected in series or grouped zones. To set Tab 13 up correctly, match the device number with the correct CT Receiver input. For example, if a CD player is programmed into location D1 on the keypad, and the CD player is connected to input 1, then the Keypad Device drop-down should match device 1. This way the the CD player is selected, the CT Receiver will send out the jump command correctly telling the keypad what page should be displayed. Keypad Jump defines if the keypad should display Main page 1, main page 2, page 1, 2, 3, or 4. This example is pictured above. 1. Do not change the Keypad Transmit ID from the default 255 (FFh) unless you plan to program every keypad with a corresponding Keypad Receive ID using CK editor. This feature supports custom applications that require keypad feedback to SOME of the keypads rather than ALL keypads. If you use keypad transmit ID 255 (FFh), ALL keypads will respond to the CT Receiver feedback jump commands. 2. Set each position to the desired source location according to your Keypad Feedback worksheet. When the input is changed in that zone or group of zones the keypad will “jump” to the desired keypad page. 3. Set the Keypad Jump to the desired page. Note: If utilizing RS-232 keypad input syncing, be certain that ALL keypads in the house have the devices located in the SAME positions on all keypads. Otherwise, the keypad will display the wrong page. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 57 58 Preset Editor Preset Editor Features and Benefits Presets are a powerful feature that can instantly recall commonly used parameters instantly. B & K preset settings can be recalled with the press of a single button. Parameters such as independent audio/video inputs, bass, treble and volume levels, loudness and tuner frequencies can be recalled with one touch access. Open the Preset Editor to create / edit your presets. Opening the Preset Editor Preset editor files are defined by the extension (*.bkp). A confirmation screen will appear to verify overwriting all the current preset settings in the unit with those contained within the preset editor file. BKcSuite will communicate with the CT Receiver. A window will show the status of the communication with the CT Receiver. B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 59 Preset Editor The Preset Editor Window This shows the presets contained within the CT Receiver preset editor file. If a "Virtual" setup is being used, default presets will be displayed on the preset editor table. If a live connection has been established, the unit's internal presets will be displayed on the preset editor table displayed below. Editing Presets Selecting a preset to edit is done by clicking on the number of the preset. You can choose the audio input (or FM tuner and frequency) and/or Video input, Volume, Bass, Treble, and Loudness for each preset. Changing the parameters of the preset is accomplished on the bottom half of the preset editor page. After you have set all of the parameters for a preset, you will now need to decide what zone(s) you want that preset to be available in. This is what the Zone Favorite setting is for. By “checking” a zone(s), the preset you configured will be available for that zone(s). Example: If you do not want Preset #1 to be accessed in a child’s room then uncheck the child’s designated zone. After each preset has been configured, click SAVE. Once all preset editing is complete, save the entire preset file from the File menu. Establish a live connection using the Device Investigator. Open the file that was previously saved, at that point the presets will overwrite the current settings in the CT receiver. Click on the # of the Button to edit the preset B&K S IMPLY B ETTER! 60 RS-232 Serial Macro Editor RS-232 Serial Macro Editor The RS-232 serial macro editor allows a CT Receiver to control other RS-232 devices. Specific examples could include other B & K products, the CK1.2 keypad, or light controllers. The serial macro editor works by using an IR trigger command to fire out RS-232 messages. In this editor, the user can specify the IR trigger, the RS-232 message and the RS-232 transmit port the command will be sent out. These commands can be triggered by any B & K IR command using Codes-Sets 0-0-0 through 1-2-8. Note: The macros will always be transmitted out the main RJ-45 jack on the back panel. The six zone RS-232 transmit (XMIT) ports are independently selectable. B & K provides RS-232 parameters for all products in the directory for documentation in BKcSuite. c:\ Program Files\ B & K Components\ BKcSuite\ Documentation. Or go to the B & K support section of our website at www.bkcomp.com. **Note: Whenever ANY multiple BKC-DIP commands are used in succession from an external source, the following BKC-DIP command must be affixed to the beginning of the command string: (0,S,I,80=6D;)(rest of macro.....;) Below is a simple example using the Serial Macro Editor to trigger the zone status feedback when a zone powers on. This example can be used on a default CK1.2 keypad. Create a macro in the serial macro editor. Choose the BK Code-set 128. Choose the IR command Power On (40h) from BK Data, this will be the trigger. Create the RS-232 string (FF,K,D20,P1,B19;). Click Save. Allow RS-232 data to transmit out (mask) all zone(s) 232 transmit ports (all zone boxes are checked). What you have done is specified a “trigger” for the CT Receiver. When the CT product receives the ID128 Power ON command, the RS-232 serial macro will be transmitted out zones A-F 232 transmit ports (and the main RJ-45 jack). The RS-232 macro will trigger zone status on the keypad when any zone is powered on (assuming ID128 is used). This status (source / Volume / Bass / Treble / Loudness On or Off), will be displayed at the bottom of the keypad window. To convert Hex to ASCII, include two back slashes (\\) before each nibble pair, (ex: \\FE ). CK1.2 Keypad For B & K CT product with hardware version code 2.00 or earlier, it is recommended you save your files frequently. For this reason, the following warning will display when running 2.00 version code or earlier: CK1.2 Keypad MAIN IN 6 IN 1 IN 7 IN 2 IN 8 IN 3 IN 9 IN 4 FM IN 5 PAGE 1 The CK1.2 keypad is B & K 's answer to a wall mounted user interface. The CK1.2 keypad stores IR source codes from its expansive database built in to the PC based software. Keypad setup software can be installed from the B & K Toolbox CD-ROM included with the CT Receiver. Keypads come default programmed to operate in the hardware zone they are physically connected to using the B & K code-set 1-2-8. An additional feature utilized by the CK1.2 is its ability to be controlled by RS-232. This allows the keypads to stay in sync with the CT Receiver as well as allowing the user to recall zone status feedback. Status feedback for each zone can be recalled by pressing the backlight button or by any IR Code-Set ENTER command. For more information on programming and installation, please refer to the CK1.2 user manuals. Three separate manuals are provided in order to aid in the keypad setup and programming.

No IR data will transmit out the 9 IR outputs. Selected Input - IR commands are routed from each Zone to the selected source of that zone. This allows identical source components to be used independently in the system. For example, if someone in Zone A is listening to a Brand X CD player connected to Input 5, all IR commands from Zone A are routed ONLY to Input 5. At the same time, in Zone B, someone is listening to a second identical Brand X CD player connected to Input 6. All IR commands from Zone B are routed ONLY to Input 6. IR routing follows the zone(s) audio input only. All Inputs - All flash / simultaneous flash. IR commands from any zone are routed to all flashers regardless of what input the zone(s) is on.

When set to OFF Non-B & K IR commands will not be passed through to flasher outputs. Regardless of this setting B & K will always respond to its own IR commands. The default is set to no because of possible optical interference. front panel remote internal control only ↑↓ next item adjust ←→ MENU setup control Optical feedback occurs when IR interference from the sun, light fixture or plasma TV is present. Interference can also occur if a sensor and an emitter/flasher are very close together. If IR commands need to be relayed from the front panel to the back panel IR flasherss, select YES and test operation. There are two possible situations you may run into: 1. Optical Feedback - Symptom: intermittent operation. To cure the feedback you must put blocking covers on all of the flasher/emitters near the front panel of the CT Receiver. Do not attempt to block IR with black electrical tape; it is generally transparent to IR. A hard plastic or tin foil is a good method for blocking IR. If you are experiencing intermittent operation, check all IR sensors for stray optical input. 2. Wrong Carrier - Symptom is no or intermittent operation. To verify this, first contact the manufacturer and check on the carrier frequency of the original remote control. If it is not between 32kHz and 42kHz, you a may not be able to use the B & K front panel sensor. For example, the front panel sensor is probably not compatible with RCA or Proscan products with 56k carrier frequencies. Substitute an external Niles or Xantech, Elan wide-band IR sensor instead.
