1.
Save the carton and packing material even if the equipment has
arrived in good condition. Should you ever need to ship the unit, use
only the original factory packing.
2.
Read all documentation before operating your equipment. Retain
all documentation for future reference.
3.
Follow all instructions printed on unit chassis for proper operation.
4.
Do not spill water or other liquids into or on the unit, or operate
the unit while standing in liquid.
5.
Make sure power outlets conform to the power requirements listed
on the back of the unit.
6.
Do not use the unit if the electrical power cord is frayed or broken.
The power supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely
to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them,
paying particular attention to cords and plugs, convenience
receptacles, and the point where they exit from the appliance.
7.
8.
Always operate the unit with the AC ground wire connected to the
electrical system ground. Precautions should be taken so that the
means of grounding of a piece of equipment is not defeated.
13. Do not block fan intake or exhaust ports. Do not operate equipment
on a surface or in an environment which may impede the normal flow
of air around the unit, such as a bed, rug, weathersheet, carpet,
or completely enclosed rack. If the unit is used in an extremely dusty
or smoky environment, the unit should be periodically “blown free”
of foreign matter.
14. Do not remove the cover. Removing the cover will expose you
to potentially dangerous voltages. There are no user serviceable
parts inside.
15. Do not drive the inputs with a signal level greater than that required
to drive equipment to full output.
16. Do not connect the inputs / outputs of amplifiers or consoles to any
other voltage source, such as a battery, mains source, or power supply,
regardless of whether the amplifier or console is turned on or off.
17. Do not run the output of any amplifier channel back into another
channel’s input. Do not parallel- or series-connect an amplifier output
with any other amplifier output. Australian Monitor Inc is not
responsible for damage to loudspeakers for any reason.
18. Do not ground any red (“hot”) terminal. Never connect a “hot” (red)
output to ground or to another “hot” (red) output!
Mains voltage must be correct and the same as that printed on the
rear of the unit. Damage caused by connection to improper AC voltage
is not covered by any warranty.
19. Non-use periods. The power cord of equipment should be unplugged
from the outlet when left unused for a long period of time.
9.
Have gain controls on amplifiers turned down during power-up
to prevent speaker damage if there are high signal levels at the inputs.
20. Service Information Equipment should be serviced by qualified service
personnel when:
10
Power down & disconnect units from mains voltage before making
connections.
A.
The power supply cord or the plug has been damaged.
B.
Objects have fallen, or liquid has been spilled into the equipment
11. Never hold a power switch in the “ON” position if it won’t stay
there itself!
C. The equipment has been exposed to rain
12. Do not use the unit near stoves, heat registers, radiators, or other heat
producing devices.
D. The equipment does not appear to operate normally, or exhibits a marked
change in performance
E. The equipment has been dropped, or the enclosure damaged.

The VS84 provides eight composite/S-video and stereo RCA audio input
sources and four destination outputs each featuring stereo RCA audio,
S-video and composite video. Any input source is routable to any
combination of outputs; controllable by either front panel control, IR remote
control or RS232 serial control.
The VS84 offers the flexibility and features demanded by any quality
AV application.

4 DC POWER INLET
The VS84 AV matrix switcher is fitted with a DC
power plug-pack input connector. Please ensure
that the plug-pack used is of an approved type and
is of sufficient current carrying capacity with the
correct voltage and connector polarity. 12Volt DC
power supply. 1.2A Max.

RS232
FRONT PANEL LOCK
The AMAV switcher can be controlled via the RS232 serial control port to
allow for interfacing to a PC, Crestron or similar third party control system
The serial communication parameters are 9600 baud, 8 bit, No Parity and 1
stop bit – this is often referred to as 9600 8N1. When the unit recognises
a complete command it will perform the requested action – there is no
delimiter character required.
The unit does not send out a message when a value is changed from the
front panel or by IR control. If the unit needs to be controlled from the front
panel in addition to the RS232 control, you would need to regularly poll the
units’ status to ensure the control system accurately reflected the current
settings.
Note : Hard resetting the unit will unlock the Front Panel controls.

STANDBY MODE
Note: Turning the unit System Power Off over RS232 will blank
the displays leaving only the Power Switch LED on. Hard
resetting the unit when in System Power Off mode will return the
unit to normal operation and unlock the front panel.
Even while the unit is turned off by RS232 it will continue to accept and act
upon switching commands. This allows you to set up a ‘scene’ before soft
powering on the unit and enabling the video outputs. The unit will still return
status and change messages in response to commands sent while in System
Power Off mode.

Before making any connections to the VS84, observe the
following:
> Connect all audio video sources and destination equipment
> Power up all source and destination audio-visual sources
> Ensure the mains voltage supply matches the label on the supplied plugpack (+/- 10%)
> Power up the VS84 AV matrix switcher
> Ensure that the power switch is OFF Ensure that all system grounds (earth)
are connected to a common point.
> For each destination output select the appropriate input source by using the
front panel UP and DOWN select button, the supplied IR remote control, or
through the RS232 serial communications port.
> Avoid powering equipment within a system from multiple power sources
that may be separated by large distances
> Upon powering up the VS84 will return to it’s last used setting before
powerered down.
