System Overview
The Williams Sound Two–Channel Infrared System,
Model TX600 consists of a MOD 112 Modulator
and one or more TX6 Transmitters (also called emitters) which use invisible infrared (IR) light waves to
broadcast speech or music to wireless infrared
receivers.
The MOD 112 accepts a variety of audio inputs and
sends 95 kHz and 250 kHz frequency modulated
signals to the TX6 Transmitter via a coaxial cable.
The transmitter emits invisible infrared light into the
listening area. Infrared receivers detect the transmission and convert the light signals back into audio
signals.
The system is designed to transmit high quality
audio for hearing assistance and language translation
applications. Because the system uses infrared light
for transmission, it is not affected by interference
A single TX6 Transmitter will cover up to 10,000
square feet of listening area in single channel mode
and 5,000 square feet in two channel mode. Larger
areas can be covered with additional transmitters.
The transmission is confined within opaque walls,
making it especially appropriate for applications in
which security is an issue, such as courtrooms and
corporate boardrooms. The Williams Sound Infrared
System is also commonly used where multiple systems are needed in adjacent rooms, such as movie
theaters and conference centers, without “spillover”
from adjacent rooms.
The system can be used with a microphone as a
stand-alone system, or it can be connected to an
existing sound system. Infrared Systems cannot be
used in bright sunlight, which contains large
amounts of interfering infrared light.

The most important principle to understand when
installing an infrared system is that invisible infrared
light behaves just like visible light. It does not pass
through opaque objects such as walls, curtains, or
people. It does pass through windows and door
openings and can bounce and scatter off reflective
walls, floors, and ceilings. The IR transmitter panels
cannot be concealed or covered up, nor can the
infrared “eye” on receiver units. Receivers work best
with a clear line-of-sight to the transmitter panels.
TX6
Two Channel Coverage
The TX600 Two–Channel Infrared System should
not be installed outdoors or indoors where there is
considerable direct sunlight. Sunlight generates
infrared interference. Certain types of high-efficiency lighting fixtures can also generate interference
because they use high frequency modulation.
Single Channel Coverage
Top Perspective
Illumination Patterns
The infrared illumination pattern from a single transmitter is cone-shaped, with a 50° angle. The horizontal and vertical patterns are identical. Figures 2
and 3 show examples of coverage patterns.
These patterns are the direct radiation pattern. The
infrared radiation does not drop to zero outside the
illustrated patterns; it decreases. It still may be useable at a greater distance, depending on receiver sensitivity and reflection characteristics of the room.
Two Channel Coverage

Note:
Single Channel Coverage Area = 10,000 sq. ft.
Two Channel Coverage Area = 5,000 sq. ft.

Infrared light reflects off most surfaces and scatters,
which increases the coverage area. Rough surfaces
tend to absorb infrared light, minimizing reflections,
and limiting coverage to the direct illumination pattern.
It’s helpful to think of the IR transmitter as an invisible floodlight. You want to aim it so listeners are
“flooded” with infrared light.
Listening areas of more than 5,000 square feet will
require two or more TX6 Transmitters for complete
coverage. Place one transmitter panel on the left side
of the front wall and the other on the right hand side.
The two transmitters will be connected with an
RG-58 cable. For extremely large venues, additional
TX6s should be located to maximize coverage
throughout the listening area.
It’s desirable for the illumination patterns to overlap
when multiple transmitters are used. Placing the
transmitters high above the audience (15–30 ft.) and
aiming them slightly downward (5°–15°) will ensure
the longest “throw” of the infrared beam. Angling
the transmitter inward towards the center of the
room also increases the coverage of the seating area.
Installation Step 2: TX6 Power Wiring
Remember that opaque objects block the infrared
light. Thus, transmitters cannot be concealed behind
an opaque walls, curtains, etc. Neither should transmitters be used in areas of extreme high or low temperatures, humidity, or chemical environments.
For Applications Outside The U.S. Requiring
240 VAC Mains Supply:
Coverage Area
The TX6 Transmitter is designed to distribute its
power equally among the channels sent to it for
transmission. Thus, when only a single channel is
present, the TX6 uses all its power to broadcast the
lone signal, achieving a coverage area of approximately 10,000 square feet. When two signals are
sent to the TX6 (as is the case when the MOD 112 is
in Stereo mode or in Discrete mode when both channels are in use), the TX6 divides its power equally
among the two signals. This makes for a coverage
area of about 5,000 square feet. This important principle is illustrated in Figure 2.
For U.S. Applications:
The TX6 Transmitter is supplied with a low-voltage
wall transformer power supply (TFP 010). Two-conductor 18 ga. zipcord is included with the transmitter.
See page 18.
WARNING! Shorting the power supply output
terminals will blow a non-replaceable internal
fuse, destroying power supply unit!
DO NOT CONNECT THE POWER SUPPLY TO
AC POWER YET!!!
Step 1:
One end of the zipcord has a 3-pin Molex
connector, the other end is bare. Cut the
bare end of the zipcord to length. Strip
this end down the middle approximately
1 inch, then strip both of the resulting
strands about 1/8 inch. Install the crimpon spade terminals supplied and connect
these to the screw terminals on the
TFP 010 Power Supply. Polarity is not
important since AC power is being used.
If you’re not getting sufficient coverage with a single, properly installed transmitter panel, you’ll need
to add additional TX6 Transmitters to achieve full
coverage of your listening area.
Figures 2 and 3 illustrate infrared light patterns and
recommended transmitter locations. In listening
areas up to 5,000 square feet, the TX6 Transmitter
panel should be installed on the front wall of the listening area in a position to flood the listening area.
It must be above the audience to permit a direct line
of sight between the transmitter and people wearing
receivers when the people are standing or sitting.

Determine the length of zipcord needed to
reach from the transmitter to the AC wall
outlet where the power supply will be
plugged in. Zipcord length must not
exceed 200 feet.
Step 2:
Plug the 3-pin connector into the TX6’s
Power In connector.
Step 4:

1. Use the 5/32" allen wrench to loosen the tension bolt in the clamp assembly enough to
release the ball. DO NOT unscrew the tension bolt completely. Using the mounting
plate as a template, mark the hole locations
on the mounting surface. Use fasteners
appropriate for the mounting surface (wood
screws, lag bolt, wall anchor) to attach the
mounting plate. Recommended fastener size
is 1/4".
2. Attach the clamp plate to the rear of the
transmitter, using (2) 1/4 x 20 x 1/2" socket
head screws and 3/16 hex wrench provided.
Place the mounting plate in the position indicated for ceiling or wall mounting.

3. Place the transmitter/clamp plate assembly
onto the the mounting plate ballshaft. Aim
the transmitter at the desired downward
angle and support it fully while using the
hex wrench to tighten the tension screw.
After initial installation, the ball will slowly
compress under pressure. Check the tension
screw after 15 minutes and re-tighten if necessary. DO NOT over-tighten.
If rotational adjustment is required, used a
7/16" open-end wrench to loosen the jam nut
on the ballshaft. Rotate the transmitter and
re-tighten the jam nut.

Note:
The TX6 transmits when a baseband signal is present. The TX6 shuts off when no
baseband signal is present. This auto shutoff feature preserves the life of the IR
LED’s and reduces power consumption
when the transmitter is not in use.
This system is designed for Class 2, lowvoltage wiring. Always follow local electrical codes when doing low voltage

Baseband Cable Connection
Installation Step 4: MOD 112 Modulator
If You’re Using One Transmitter:
The Modulator is usually located with the sound
system amplifier or mixer for easy access to an
audio input signal. For portable systems, the modulator can be placed near the transmitter or wherever
is most convenient.
Step 1:
Determine the length of RG-58 coaxial
cable needed to reach from the transmitter
to the modulator unit. The modulator is
usually located with the other sound
equipment to simplify audio connections.
100 feet of coaxial cable is included with
each transmitter. You will need to cut it to
length. Additional RG-58 coax can be
added. Make sure you leave some slack at
each end.
Step 2:
Install BNC connectors on each end of the
cable. (See Figure 6.)
Step 3:
Connect the Baseband cable to the
Baseband Out jack on the MOD 112 modulator and to the Baseband In jack on the
TX6 transmitter. (See Figures 5 and 7.)
If You’re Using More Than One Transmitter:
Step 1:
Determine the length of coaxial cable
needed to reach between the transmitters.
100 feet of coaxial cable is included with
each transmitter. You will need to cut it to
length. Additional RG–58 coax can be
added. Make sure you leave some slack at
each end.
Step 2:
Install BNC connectors on each end of the
cable. (See Figure 6.)
Step 3:
Connect the baseband cable from the
Baseband Out Jack on the first transmitter
in the chain (the one connected to the
MOD 112 Modulator) to the Baseband In
jack on the next TX6 transmitter in the
chain. Use the cable clamps and screws
provided to secure the cable. The coax can
also be routed through conduit before
attaching BNC connectors. You can chain
as many transmitters together as you need.
Remember that each transmitter needs its
own power supply.

Power Connection For U.S. Applications:
Step 1:
Connect the power supply to the 3-pin
Molex connector located on the rear of the
MOD 112. (See Figure 7.)
Step 2:
Plug the power supply into an AC outlet.
Power Connection For Applications Outside The
U.S. Requiring 240 VAC Mains Supply:
See page 18.
Baseband Cable Connection
The MOD 112 drives one transmitter. The TX6
repeats the baseband signal, so any number of transmitters can be used. The modulator outputs CANNOT be split with CATV splitters.
Audio Connection
The MOD 112 accepts audio signals from industry
standard low impedance microphones, balanced,and
unbalanced lines.
Microphones
An industry standard 3-pin male connector is used.
Pin 1 is the shield and pins 2 and 3 are audio. Power
for condenser microphones is supplied according to
DIN 45596.
Balanced Lines
A 1/4 inch Tip-Ring-Sleeve (3 conductor) phone
plug is used. The three-pin connectors are used for
mic inputs only.
Unbalanced Lines
A 1/4 inch Tip-Sleeve (2 conductor) phone plug is
used.
8 Ohm speaker lines can be connected to the balanced line inputs. Usually it is advantageous to not
connect to the sleeve of the plug, thus avoiding creating a ground loop.

25 V, 70 V, and 100 V speaker lines can be connected to the balanced line inputs using an appropriate
attenuator. “T” pads made with resistors yield better
fidelity than speaker matching transformers.
The MOD 112 transmits audio with excellent fidelity. Therefore, be sure to connect its inputs to signal
sources that supply audio that is the best your system can offer. The signal should not be processed by
an equalizer used for an accompanying PA system.
The MOD 112 has excellent signal processing, so
the use of additional limiters or compressors is not
recommended.
Step 3:
Look at the transmitter panel(s). With the
modulation signal and power connected,
two red lights should be visible on the the
panel–the power indicator at the center top
and the baseband indicator located at the
center bottom.
Step 4:
Hold a receiver near the “Infrared Test
Out” LED on the front of the MOD 112.
Turn the receiver on and adjust the volume. You should be able to hear the audio
signal through the receiver. If not, make
sure the CXR On Indicator is lit and there
is activity on the Level Indicators. If the
lights are not flashing, check your audio
source or the setting of the input level
switch and input level control. If the audio
lights are flashing, but you don’t hear anything from the receiver, try a different
receiver to be sure the receiver is working.
Step 5:
Take a receiver into the listening area and
walk around to check the reception. Make
sure the “eye” on the receiver is not covered up when in use. The receiver will not
work if it is placed in a pocket or purse
and its eye must be able to “see” the transmitter panel. It may be necessary to adjust
the angle of the transmitter(s) to obtain the
best coverage. If coverage is not adequate,
additional transmitter panels must be used.
Installation Step 5: Testing the System
Step 1:
After the baseband cable, power cables,
and audio source are connected, turn the
MOD 112 power switch on. The green
power LED on the front of the MOD 112
should light.
Step 2:
Make sure the sound system is on and
your audio source is active. Check the
quality of your audio source signal by listening through the Phones jack on the
MOD 112’s front. The MOD 112’s
10-segment bar graph level indicator
shows audio level in 3 dB steps at input of
audio level processing circuit.

After the carrier has automatically gone off, audio
sufficient to light the -21 level indicator light will

Audio Processor Switch
Selects one of the two modes available.
Limit Mode
The audio processor has little effect on low level
sound. As the level increases, reaching the level to
light the red +6 light on the level indicator, no further increase in transmitted level is permitted. This
is necessary to prevent distortion in receivers and
prevent interference with other channels. Limit produces a very natural sound, and is most desirable for
music. High quality speech is very pleasant to listen
to. However, Limit is not as helpful for hearing
impaired individuals as Compress mode.
Compress Mode
At high levels, 0 to +6, Compress is very similar to
Limit. But at low levels Compress increases the
volume substantially. Hearing impaired people need
an increase in low level to be able to hear most
speech.
Compress is most useful for hearing impaired individuals and where the input signal is poorly controlled or has great dynamic range.
Stereo Mode
Audio processing is coupled, providing a consistent
stereo image, important when listening with headphones. Carrier timers are coupled, requiring both
to have reached approximately 30 minutes before
either carrier can go off. Both carriers go off and on
together. The Phones jack receives stereo sound,
one channel in the left side and the other channel in
the right side. The Phones switch is deactivated.
Phones
The phones jack monitors the audio in one, the other
or both channels, depending on the setting of the
Mode and Phones switches. It is designed to accommodate standard professional headphones with a
1/4 inch Tip-Ring-Sleeve (Stereo) plug. Channel 1 is
on the Tip, channel 2 is on the ring and the sleeve is
common. It can also accept any other type of headphone or earphone. Monophonic headphones are
acceptable, however will not provide stereo reproduction. Headphones with 3.5 mm plugs can be
used with a 1/4 inch to 3.5 mm adapter. If 3.5 mm
stereo phones are used, a stereo adapter is required.
IR LED
Infrared receivers can be tested using the IR LED.
It is of short range only, useful only to about
1 meter. Infrared emitted from this LED is modulated by the carriers generated in this unit only. If this
modulator is connected to other modulators for additional channels, their carriers are not emitted by the
LED, and must be monitored at those modulators.
Mode Switch
The Mode Switch selects how the channels are used.
Separate processing for each channel is provided in
Discrete mode, where the two channels have unrelated program material such as two different languages.
Coupled processing is provided for Stereo mode,
where the program material is related.
Discrete Mode
The channels operate fully independently. Carrier
timers operate separately, allowing one channel to
go off without affecting the other. The Phones jack
receives one or the other channel, as selected by the
Phones switch. Both channels of the Phones jack
have the same signal.

minimum acceptable level is approximately 100 mV,
and the maximum level before clipping is approximately 10 V.
Accessory Connector
Outputs are available directly from several points in
the internal circuitry of the modulator. They are
from the output of the differential amplifiers for the
main inputs and from the output of the audio processing circuits. The outputs are isolated from internal circuits and may be used as the installer requires.

Receiver Instructions
Step 3:
Turn the receiver on by rotating the volume control knob clockwise.
Two Channel IR Receiver Model WIR RX5
Step 4:
Adjust the tone to your preference using
the slide switch tone control. To avoid
draining the battery, make sure the receiver is turned off when not in use.
Make sure the “eye” on the front of the receiver is
not covered up when in use. The receiver is intended to be worn on the front of the body, hanging from
the lanyard attached to the receiver. The receiver
will not work if it is placed in a pocket or purse. A
variety of earphones, headphones, or a neckloop
telecoil coupler can be used with the RX5 Receiver.
Step 1:
To install the batteries, open the battery
compartment using a coin in the slot in the
bottom of the receiver. Press two AA batteries into place, observing proper battery
polarity.
Step 2:
Plug the earphone or headphone into the
earphone jack.
Step 3:
Turn the receiver on by rotating the volume control knob clockwise.
Step 4:
Choose the appropriate channel using the
push-button channel selector.
Step 5:
Adjust the tone to your preference using
the slide switch tone control. To avoid
draining the battery, make sure the receiver is turned off when not in use.
Battery Information for Receivers
For RX5 and RX6 Receivers in normal use, a AA
alkaline battery (BAT 001) will last about 30 hours.
Rechargeable AA batteries will last about 15 hours
per charge.
In the case of rechargeable batteries, most commercially available external charger kits will work well.
If the sound becomes weak or distorted, replace the
batteries. The indicator light may still be on, even
with weak batteries. Do not leave dead batteries in
the receivers, they may leak and damage the receiver.
DO NOT attempt to recharge disposable batteries!
AVOID shorting plus and minus battery terminals together with metal objects. Battery damage
and burns can result.
DO NOT mix rechargeable batteries and chargers from different manufacturers.

Receiver Management
Different types of facilities will use different
approaches for receiver management and earphone
sanitation. Following are some alternatives that
other customers have used successfully:
1.
Regular users purchase their own receiver and
take care of their own batteries and earphone.
2.
Some facilities label the receiver and earphone
with the names of regular users so each person
uses the same receiver and earphone.
3.
Ushers issue receivers to people who request
them. Earphones are sanitized after use. Foam
ear cushions can be replaced or washed with a
mild detergent, rinsed thoroughly and airdried. The EAR 022 Surround Earphone can
be sanitized with an alcohol pad.
4.
The receivers are stored in a multiple compartment storage case with a credit card or driver's
license left as collateral for the receiver.
5.
Regular users purchase their own earphone or
headphone and bring them to use with
receivers at the facility.
No sound through receivers.
1.
If some of the receivers work but others don’t,
check for bad batteries or earphones on the
receivers that aren’t working.
2.
If none of the receivers work, check to see if
the power and baseband cable are connected
to the transmitter and that the Power and
Baseband Present Indicator lights are ON.
3.
Check to see if the modulator is connected
properly to the sound system. The CXR On
Indicator should be lit and there should be
activity on the MOD 112’s Level Indicators.
4.
Make sure the “eye” is not covered up on the
receiver. There must be clear line of sight
between the receiver eye and the transmitter
panel.
Sound through the receivers is weak and noisy.
1.
Hold a receiver in front of the Infrared Test
LED on the front of the MOD 112 modulator
and listen to the signal. If the signal is weak
and noisy here, check the Input Level switch
and Input Level Control settings. Increase the
input signal level from the sound system by
turning up a mixer control. If the signal
sounds okay, you may need to re-position the
transmitter panels or add additional panels.
Troubleshooting
Neither TX6 indicator light is on (Fig 1a).
1.
Make sure the wall transformer is plugged into
the transmitter and the power switch or any
remote power switch is on.
2.
Make sure the electrical outlet is on.
3.
Make sure the 24 VAC power supplies are
working.
Buzzing or humming noise in sound system.
1.
Check for ground loops or noise on the input
signal. Call your Authorized Dealer or
Williams Sound for help.
Only one TX6 light (top) comes on (Fig 1a).
1.
Make sure the MOD 112 is on.
2.
Make sure the baseband cable is connected
properly.
3.
Check to see if that at least one carrier light on
the MOD 112 is on.
