MIC/LINE INPUTS
ANALOG
LINE OUTPUTS
Using standard mic/line cables terminated on one end with
terminal block connectors and appropriate connectors for your
mic/line sources on the other end, connect the terminal block
ends into the ANALOG MIC/LINE INPUTS of Jupiter and the
opposite ends into your source devices’ outputs. Refer to the
Audio Wiring Reference for more information.
NOTE: Wiring the inputs to an unbalanced cable will typically
result in an input level that is 6 dB lower than the input level
achieved using a balanced cable. If wiring to an unbalanced
source, you may need to adjust Jupiter’s input level. Refer to the
INPUT LEVEL within the INPUTS panel in the software.
Using standard mic/line cables terminated on one end with
terminal block connectors and appropriate connectors for your
destination devices on the other end, connect the terminal
block ends into the ANALOG LINE OUTPUTS of Jupiter and
the opposite ends into your destination devices’ inputs. These
outputs are +4 dBu balanced line level outputs by default. If
you need an unbalanced output, see the analog audio wiring
diagrams in the Audio Wiring Reference.
NOTE: Wiring the outputs to an unbalanced cable will typically
result in an output level that is 6 dB lower than the output level
achieved using a balanced cable. If wiring to an unbalanced destination,
you may need to change Jupiter’s output level. Refer to the OUTPUT
LEVEL within the OUTPUTS panel in the software.
Control
ETHERNET
Using a standard straight-through CAT5 cable terminated with RJ45
connectors, connect Jupiter’s ETHERNET port to either your computer’s
Ethernet port or to an existing Ethernet network. You may wish to review
the Network Configuration section for more information. When Jupiter has
a physical network connection, the amber “link” LED on the ETHERNET
connector will be lit solid. When there is network communication, the green
“activity” LED on the ETHERNET connector and the NETWORK LED on the
front of the device will flash accordingly.
NOTE: Jupiter’s Ethernet port will automatically sense a device-to-device
connection so that a standard straight-through Ethernet cable may always
be used. A cross-over cable is not required.
NOTE 2: The Ethernet connection is also available for 3rd party control.
Refer to the control protocol document available on the Symetrix web site
or within the Jupiter software help file for more information.

Hardware Connections
ARC
Quick Start Guide
Using a standard straight-through CAT5 cable terminated with RJ45
connectors or standard shielded twisted pair terminated with a terminal
block on one end, connect your ARC Wall Panels according to the
guidelines in the ARC Network Design section of the ARC’s documentation
or the Jupiter help file.
When an ARC Wall Panel network is connected to Jupiter, the green ARC
LED on the front of the device will be lit solid green.
WARNING: When designing an ARC network, one must be careful
not to double power any ARCs. If all pins on the CAT5 connections are
used, power can travel over the CAT5 cable and reach any ARC on that
particular chain. Power over CAT5 could potentially come from the ARC
that is powered locally and then daisy-chained via CAT5 to other ARCs or
directly from a particular ARC’s terminal block connections. In general, we
recommend using only one type of power connection on the ARCs, either
the RJ45s (with CAT5 cable) or the terminal blocks but not both.
CAUTION: DO NOT plug the RJ45 connectors of an ARC Wall Panel into
any RJ45 connector labeled “ETHERNET”, “COBRALINK” or “SYMLINK”
(See warning on page 4)
EXT CTRL 1 and 2
Using standard shielded twisted pair terminated with a terminal block
on one end, you may connect up to two contact closures or one
potentiometer to each EXTERNAL CONTROL input. Configuration of the
EXTERNAL CONTROL inputs is done with the External Controller Wizard.
These ports may also be used to integrate with an alarm or emergency
system.
LOGIC OUTPUTS
Using standard shielded twisted pair terminated with a terminal block on
one end, you may connect up to four logic controlled devices such as
relays, LEDs or camera switchers. Configuration of the LOGIC OUTPUTS
is done with the External Controller Wizard. These ports may follow most
buttons and LEDs in software.

Unbalanced Connections
Unbalanced out to balanced in:
When wiring this connection, use a shielded twisted pair
cable. The balanced side wires the same as a standard,
balanced connection. On the unbalanced side, you wire the
white (minus) wire together with the ground. This provides
some common mode rejection at the balanced input.
The RCA connector and the 1/4” TS connector are
unbalanced connectors. However, the wiring differs
depending on if they are sending to, or receiving from
a balanced connector. In this example, the unbalanced
connector is sending signal to a balanced connector.

Jupiter Networking
Jupiter
Network Configuration
present to assign IP addresses to either Jupiter or your
PC, you may need to configure your PC with a static
IP in the range of 169.254.x.x with a Subnet Mask of
255.255.0.0 in order to communicate with Jupiter in a
direct connect mode. However, if your PC is using the
default network settings, it should also have automatically
self-assigned a similar private IP address in the range of
169.254.x.x, and if this is the case, you should be able
to connect to Jupiter directly. Even if the PC’s default
settings have been changed, Jupiter will try to establish
communications by setting up appropriate routing table
entries to reach devices with 169.254.x.x addresses.
3.In the case of the first two methods (direct connection
and indirect connection), the Jupiter software will
attempt to set-up appropriate routing table entries for
a seamless connection regardless of the IP addresses
of your PC and Jupiter. However, under Windows®
Vista or higher, administrative privileges are required to
allow the Jupiter software to modify the routing table.
For best results, launch the Jupiter software while
logged in as an administrator, or choose to run the
software as an administrator. Note: To run a program
as the Administrator under Vista or higher, right click
on the program’s icon or shortcut and choose “Run as
administrator”.
Jupiter is setup and controlled by a host computer via
Ethernet. This requires the host computer to be connected
to Jupiter directly via a standard CAT5 Ethernet cable,
indirectly via an Ethernet switch, or via an existing Ethernet
network.
The primary difference between the three methods of
connection is that in the first two, the Jupiter software
assumes there is no DHCP server or other network
infrastructure in place. It assumes Jupiter is using a selfgenerated IP address and adjusts its connection steps
appropriately. In the third method, it is assumed that a
DHCP server and/or router with DHCP server are already
present on the existing network so Jupiter may already have
obtained an IP address. Consult your network administrator
if in doubt.
Network configuration of Jupiter:
Connecting to Jupiter from a host computer on the
same LAN
Both Jupiter and the host computer require the following
3 items:
1.IP Address - The unique address of a node on a network.
General Notes
2.Subnet Mask - Configuration that defines which IP
Addresses are included in a particular subnet.
1.The Jupiter boots up with DHCP enabled by default. This
means that as soon as you connect it to a network, it will
look for a DHCP server in order to obtain an IP address.
If a DHCP server is present, Jupiter will get its IP address
from it. This process may take several minutes. With your
PC attached to the same network and thus getting its IP
address from the same DHCP server, all will be ready to
go.
3.Default Gateway (optional) - The IP address of a device
that routes traffic from one subnet to another. (This is
only needed when the PC and Jupiter are on different
subnets).
If you are putting Jupiter on an existing network, a network
administrator will be able to provide the above information or
it may have been provided automatically by a DHCP server.
For security reasons, it is not recommended to put Jupiter
directly on the Internet. If you do, a network administrator
or your Internet Service Provider can provide the above
information.
2.If your network does not have a DHCP server, Jupiter
will not be able to obtain an IP address. While waiting,
Jupiter will default to a private IP address in the range

file on the device to your computer. Either way, the Jupiter
software must “know” about the device first, which is what
the Connection Wizard accomplishes.
Advanced:
The Advanced dialog will allow you to broaden your network
search for devices allowing you to manually designate a
Search IP address base and Search subnet mask. These
options can be used to search a network for devices
(through a router) other than the one your computer is
currently on.
