PAGE 4 User Manual PCA 240 USB EN CONNECTIONS Mains Connection (25) The supply transformer has been designed for use on either 115V AC or 230 V AC, selected by this slide switch on the rear panel (17). The amplifier is factory set at 230 V AC mains voltage. Input Connection Inputs 2~5 incorporate balanced standard COMBO sockets (1/4” stereo jack, and XLR 3P) on the rear panel. Wiring is as follows: PUSH 1 2 Front View 3 SLEEVE RING TIP 1/4” STEREO JACK XLR 3P Tip : Signal (live) Ring : Signal (Return) Sleeve : Screen Pin1 : Screen Pin2 : Signal (live) Pin3 : Signal (return) LINE MIC PHANTOM 24V NOTE: Inputs 2~5 incorporate an input selector (11), according to the input surce type (MIC or LINE). On the other hand, they incorporate a 24V phantom power position for condenser microphones. Potentiometers Turn the front panel potentiometers (1) clockwise to increase the volume or anticlockwise to reduce the volume. Priority State Input 5 has the highest priority (apart fromTEL.EMER), overrulling the rest of inputs. This priority will act when the device detect an input level over the fixed threshold. - Priority terminals (40) have the same purpose. PCA 240 USB provides an auxiliary input (INPUT 1) which may be used for connecting other signal sources such as a Radio Tuner, CD or Cassette player (LINE level). Select the type of the input from the rear switch (23), and connect the audio source in the rear connectors (20). Turn the front potentiometer clockwise to increase the volume or anticlockwise to reduce the volume. The INPUT 1 sockets are standard RCA phonos, two sockets are supplied and these are linked together internally in parallel, this allows stereo signal source to be used without the need to obtain a special lead, however you may wish to check with the manufacturer of the signal source to ensure that no damage will result if the left and right output channels are connected together in parallel. RCA Phono plug connections Sleeve - Screen Pin - Signal SLEEVE PIN PAGE 5 User Manual PCA 240 USB EN Chime On/Off Switching on the manual chime on/off (10) switch on the rear panel and the priority conditions, chime function will be activated ( “Ding-Dong” pre-announcement chime) when the priority override is activated. The default volume of the chime is pre-set at the factory and should be suitable for most applications. Power In & Pre Out (21-22) These sockets connect the mixer/preamplifier stage to the power amplifier stage. The connecting link must be plugged in for normal operation as a mixer/amplifier. If a compressor/limiter, equalizer, or other external signal processor is used in the sound system, connect the “PRE OUT” to the input of the external processor and the output of the processor to “POWER IN” In the signal chain, “PRE OUT” is after the tone controls and the master volume control. Loudspeaker Connection This device provides two different types of loudspeaker outputs : High impedance lines (25/70/100V) and low impedance (4, 8, 16Ω), you can only use one of these outputs at any one time, any attempt to use two or more of these may result in damage to the amplifier. Loudspeaker Direct Outputs PCA 240 USB provides direct outputs according to the designed use: - High impedance lines (25/70/100V) - Low impedance (4, 8, 16Ω) These outputs, give an output at all times, reproducing any input signal into the amplifier (INPUTs 1-5, USB/SD interface). The chime and priority functions affect these outputs.
