installation OVERVIEW
Ventilation Requirements
Power Management and EU Standby Power Requirements
Important: The MCA-C3 should be situated so that its location or position
does not interfere with its proper ventilation. Do not block vents above or to
the sides of the unit, as it requires ventilation for proper operation. Do not
expose to excessive dust, and do not allow dust to build up on the unit and
block vent holes. Do not place the MCA-C3 above or below a heat-generating
component such as an audio amplifier.
The MCA-C3 controller meets EU Standby Power requirements by using
power management to turn off the controller and sources.
Be sure to leave at least 2 inches of space to the sides of the unit with open air
flow above. A single-space rack mount vent or about 1.75 inches must be kept
clear above and below the unit.
Installation
The MCA-C3 controller can be rack mounted or placed on a shelf in an
equipment rack. The controller occupies two rack spaces with feet removed.
The controller can be installed in an equipment rack using the included
rack-mount ears and hardware to attach the ears to the controller chassis.
Up to six controllers can be connected for up to 36 zones on the system.
After the last zone is powered off and the Home Theater trigger input
is inactive, the sources are powered off after five minutes. Then if there is
no activity, the home theater trigger turns off in another minute. Finally,
the controller is placed into standby after another minute. Standby power
consumption is less than 1 watt.
Any keypad activity will wake the system from standby. In addition, Wake On
LAN may be used to wake the system from standby.
Important Considerations
• Disconnect the power cord before making any connections to the
controller.
• Verify that all connections and polarity are correct.
• Keep all power cords away from all signal cables to prevent humming from
induced noise.
Electrical Power
• Choose reliable signal cables and patch cords.
The MCA-C3 operates at 100-120VAC ~60 Hz or 220-240VAC ~50 Hz. Voltage
is selected by the voltage switch on the rear panel and incorporates the
appropriate detachable power cord. It is recommended that the MCA-C3 and
the source equipment be plugged into a dedicated 20-amp circuit. A power
line conditioner can reduce interference problems caused by noise found in
some electrical systems.
• Label all wires with the room location at both ends of the wire.
The power switch for the unit is on the front panel.
Do not connect the controller’s main power feed until all other
connections have been made and verified. Live connection or
removal of the keypad wiring or other wiring when the system
is powered can cause communication problems in the network.
Double-check terminations during each phase of the installation
to prevent accidental damage. Incorrect wiring is the number one
cause for non-warranty product damage.
12
• Avoid running speaker wires or signal cables close to house electrical
wiring for any distance. If you have to run them parallel, make sure to space
the wires at least two feet from the AC line. If you need to cross an AC line it
should be at a 90° angle.
• For multiple controllers, the controller ID must be set with the rotary switch
on the rear panel. Each controller must be set to a unique number before
powering connected controllers.
Important: The necessary software (SCS-C5) to program and configure the
system is available via download from the doc center at www.russound.com.
With your laptop, you can configure the system and name all of the zones prior
to connecting with the MCA-C3 controller. See Section on page 27 for items to
be programmed with the software.

Installation Guide
Wiring
Rack Mount Installation
Route CAT-5e cable between the keypad locations and the controller.
Terminate all CAT-5e cables with an RJ45 connector using the T568A wiring
standard configuration. Utilize a UL/CSA approved electrical box at the keypad
(double-gang at least 32 cu. in.) and controller locations. Using connector
specific wall plates at the controller location will better organize all of the
incoming cables. Route CAT-5e wire from the electrical box to each keypad
location, with runs not to exceed 250 feet. Label the wires at both ends with the
zone and location.
To attach the rack ears, locate the five rack mount holes on each side of the
controller’s chassis. Align the holes in the rack ears with the holes in the chassis.
Insert and tighten the screws.

Route standard 4 conductor speaker wire to each speaker location. Each
speaker connection requires an 8-ohm load and will provide 20 watts per
channel. Standard 16-gauge 4-conductor stranded speaker wire can be run up
to 125 feet; 14-gauge wire can be run up to 250 feet.

NOTE: EU Standby Power Requirements are met when the MCA-C3 controller is
configured with six (6) MDK-C5 keypads attached.
The MDK-C5 keypad is designed for use with the C-Series controllers, and
connects to a keypad port near the top left on the rear of the controller. These
RJ45 ports support MDK-C5 keypads and UNO-TS2 touchscreens .
The six keypad ports correspond to the six zones supported by the MCA-C3.
When a connected keypad is powered on, the zone becomes active and the
corresponding zone LED lights up on the front of the MCA-C3 controller.
Connections are made using CAT-5e with RJ45 connectors using T568A wire
configuration. For a clean installation when wiring from a keypad port use
a CAT-5e patch cable to connect from the keypad port to a RJ45 wall plate
(optional). Using the same T568A RJ45 wiring configuration, use CAT-5e cable
from the wall plate to the keypad. Maximum CAT-5e cable length is 250 feet
between the controller and the keypad. The OS Update jumper should be in
the RUN position on the lower two pins.
If more keypads are desired for a zone, use an optional SA-ZX3 keypad
splitter with a Russound 1201A (12VDC 1A) power supply at the controller end.
All keypads on an SA-ZX3 control the same zone. More detailed information
regarding SA-ZX3 installation and operation can be found in its installation
manual.

Speaker connections
Speaker Output Connections
The MCA-C3 supports speaker outputs for all zones. These 20 watt per channel
stereo speaker level outputs have high-current two-channel analog amplifiers.
Each speaker connection requires an 8-ohm load.
The speakers are connected to the MCA-C3 using the supplied modular snap
speaker connectors. Each of these color coded connectors is designated for
the speaker set of a particular amplified zone. To avoid confusion, connect one
zone speaker set at a time starting with Zone 1, taking care to keep zone and
speaker wire identities straight.
Strip 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 cm) off the end of each speaker cable jacket. Then
strip 1/4 inch (0.7 cm) of insulation off each wire. Twist the speaker wire strands
together so there are no strands separated from the bundle.
Lift the black lever for each connection until it locks open and insert the
proper speaker wire, matching channel and polarity for all four wires. Snap
the lever down. Check to make sure there are no stray strands of wire outside
the terminals. If there are, remove the wire, twist the strands together, and
reconnect the wire to the terminal. Insert the modular connector into its
designated output on the back of the MCA-C3.

Source connections
RNET Source Data Connections
Source Audio Connections
The RNET Link In and Link Out can be used to connect the MCA-C3 to other
specified Russound RNET-enabled source equipment. The connection is made
using a CAT-5e patch cable from the Link Out of the controller and into the Link
In of the RNET-enabled source. Another CAT-5e patch cable can be used to link
out of that source and link into another RNET-enabled source in the system.
Use a standard CAT-5e patch cable with an RJ45 connector on each end.
Along with RNET data signals, the RNET Link In and Link Out port passes
source IR signals. To avoid potential cross-talk between the source-specific IR
repeating signal lines, the cable can not exceed 18 inches in length.
On the MCA-C3, sources 1 through 6 have standard stereo audio inputs. All
source inputs have audio signal sensing. These sources can be programmed
during zone setup to be global sources, or zones can be individually
programmed to restrict access to sources.
There is an internal AM/FM tuner that, if enabled, will occupy source 1. The
tuner is enabled with the SCS-C5 software and cannot be any other source
number. If utilizing the internal tuner, do not connect/configure another
source on source 1.
Connect each source output using quality RCA signal cables. Connect the Left
and Right Audio outputs from each source to the corresponding inputs on the
MCA-C3 controller.

Routed IR Outputs
These six routed IR emitter outputs are supported by the MCA-C3 IR engine
and support IR pass-through. They are also carried by the RNET Link cable to
additional controllers.
Attach the end of the IR emitter with the 3.5mm plug to the IR emitter port.
Remove the adhesive back at the other end of the emitter and attach the
emitter over the source component’s IR window. When using the IR routed
outputs, in order to control this source component with IR, the source must be
selected at the keypad receiving the command.
Common IR
This output is supported by the MCA-C3 IR engine and supports IR passthrough from any of the IR sources or zones. These allow control of any source
equipment without that source being selected on the keypad. The connection
for the common IR output is made using an IR emitter with a 3.5mm plug. The
Russound 845.1 single IR emitter is recommended, or use an IR connecting
block such as the Russound 857 which allows multiple units to be controlled
through a common IR output.

Multiple Controller INstallation
Linking Multiple Controllers
Controller ID Switch Settings
The RNET Link In and Link Out can be used to connect two or more (up to
6) MCA-C3 controllers (does not support MCA-C5, CAV6.6, CAM6.6 or CAA66
controllers). The connection is made using a CAT-5e patch cable from the Link
Out of the first controller and into the Link In of the next controller. Along with
RNET data signals, the RNET Link In and Link Out port passes source IR signals.
The CAT-5e patch cable must have an RJ45 connector on each end with T568A
wiring configuration. It can not exceed 18 inches (45.7 cm) in length to avoid
potential cross-talk between the source-specific IR repeating signal lines.
NOTE: Use standard RCA Y-splitter cables to split audio between two
controllers. In some multicontroller systems, line level audio distribution amps
may be used.
MCA-C3 Controller (ID#2)
The Controller ID switch is a rotary switch with seven positions. It is used to set
the controller ID number for multi-controller systems, and to put the MCA-C3
into Firmware Update mode.
If two or more MCA-C3 controllers are connected using the RNET Link In and
Link Out ports, each controller must have a unique controller ID prior to being
connected through the RNET ports. Set each controller’s ID switch to a unique
number. Any multi-controller configuration requires that one controller be set
to controller ID #1. This action must be performed before the system setup
procedure is completed through SCS-C5 software and before powering up the
system. The small arrow on the dial should point at the desired setting.

Page Trigger IN
The page trigger can be used to trigger a page event, configurable using
SCS-C5 software (see pg. 27). The 12VDC trigger input selects the audio input
from Source 6 (if configured in software as the Page Input) and sends it to any
zone that does not have page disabled or that is not in Do Not Disturb mode.
Do not use the page trigger input if there is a regular audio source connected
to Source 6.

Paging Audio IN
The MCA-C3 has a paging audio input on Source 6 (right channel only) that
accepts line level audio signals via RCA cables. The paging inputs interface with
the page output of a telephone system or other peripheral device. When a page
event is triggered, it interrupts audio outputs for all enabled zones. System
paging can be disabled permanently in each zone by software programming
or temporarily with Do Not Disturb. To utilize Source 6 for paging input, it must
be configured as a page source in the SCS-C5 set up.
Note: If Source 6 is enabled for paging events then only five source inputs are
available.

The output will be activated when the first zone is turned on (system on) and
is deactivated six minutes after the last zone is turned off (system off ), unless
the home trigger input has 12VDC present.
This 12VDC Trigger input will have different functionality based on the state
of the system and the state of the trigger. The connections for the trigger are
made using a two-conductor cable with 3.5mm male mini-plug. The tip is
positive (+) and the sleeve is negative (-).
The 12VDC 100mA trigger out can be used to engage any 12VDC trigger
device or component such as the Russound ACT-1 triggered outlet. The
connections for the trigger out are made using a two-conductor cable with
3.5mm male mini-plug ports at each end. The tip is positive (+) and the sleeve
is negative (-).
"System Off’ (all zones have been off for at least 5 minutes): If 12VDC is
applied to this input, it will activate the power management ON command to
the sources. While all zones are still OFF and 12VDC is removed, the system will
wait 5 minutes and then activate the power management OFF command to
the sources.
"System On" (at least one zone is on): If 12VDC is present but all zones get
turned OFF, the power management OFF commands will not be sent until 5
minutes after the 12VDC is removed from the trigger.
Note: If the trigger is not being used, power management will operate
normally.

SCS-C5 Configuration Software
Programmable options with SCS-C5 software
The necessary software (SCS-C5) to program and configure the system is
available via download from the Doc Center at www.russound.com. With your
PC laptop, you can configure the system prior to connecting with the MCA-C3
controller. The software has a Source Setup Wizard to aid in the setup and basic
configuration of the sources. Once configured, the system information can be
saved to a file. Reports can also be generated for a hard copy back up of the
system configuration.
Internal AM/FM Tuner on Source 1 - If the tuner is utilized, any input via
the Source 1 input ports on the rear of the unit needs to be disabled.
Sound Controls - Adjust Bass, Treble, Balance, and Loudness initial settings.
IR Keycode Learning - allows IR codes to be learned, saved, and managed.
Page Input on Source 6 - assigns Source 6 as a paging input.
Items to be programmed with SCS-C5 software include:
Source Configuration - group by zone- or source-based options.
Zone and Source Names - a list of predefined names for both are available
and will be visible upon keypads and in reports. Custom naming is also
possible following the character parameters.
Source Exclusion - defines the set of sources available to each zone.
Party Mode Participation - defines whether the zone can participate in
Party mode.
Zone and Source Linked Groups - Two groups of each type are allowed per
controller. Groups share source selection and party mode participation.
All ON Participation - defines whether or not the zone will respond to the
All ON command.
Page Event mode - defines whether a zone will respond to a page event.
Page Volume - sets the volume of a page event in each zone.
Power Management of Sources - enabled / disabled per source. If enabled
the source will turn on when the first zone is turned on or the home
theater trigger has 12 VDC present. The source will turn off 5 minutes after
the last zone is turned off, or 5 minutes after input is discontinued from
the home theater trigger. This feature uses IR commands and audio signal
sensing to power up sources and initiate audio to confirm source power
states. NOTE: Power management must be enabled for RNET sources for
controller to go into standby mode.

system Start up
Troubleshooting
Start up
1. Make connections of sources, speakers and keypads to the controller(s).
2. In a multiple controller configuration, set the controller IDs to unique
numbers. Use CAT-5e linking cables of no more than 18 in (45.7 cm) to link
the controllers. Link by interconnecting the RNET Link ports.
3. Plug in and power the sources and controllers.
4. The left LED showing power on the front panel of each controller should
be lit.
5. Configure the system using the SCS-C5 software. Load the program onto
Controller#1 using the front USB port or back panel Ethernet port.
• When the controller and the keypads are powered ON, all the corresponding
zone LEDs on the face of the controller will be green. Improper connection
may cause one or more LEDs not to be lit. Check all connections.
• Cycle power by pressing the power button, waiting 10 seconds, and then
pressing the power button again.
• Check connections from the keypads and speakers to the controller(s).
• If the keypad doesn't respond to commands ensure the OS update jumper
on the rear of the keypad is in the RUN position (on the lower pins).
6. Check operation of the keypads, power on, and cycle through sources.
For correct operation, each RNET source must be configured with a
unique source ID and must match the assignment made with the SCS-C5
Configuration software (see pg. 27).
7. Check zone keypads. The zone LED should be lit on the front of the
controller if the corresponding keypad is on. The LED will not be lit if the
keypad is not turned on or is absent.
8. Check operation of all keypad functions.
9. Check for functional IR signal pass-through (if applicable).
10. The system is now ready to use.
