Introduction
Thank you for selecting the digital multimedia-based MCS-D 200 conference system from beyerdynamic. Please take some time
to read carefully through this manual before setting up the equipment.
This manual describes the installation and operation of the MCS-D 200 system without the control and configuration via PC.
MCS-D 200 is a fully digital multimedia-based conference system in single-cable design. It can be used for small and large
events in permanent installations or for mobile use.
The system includes the following components:
• MCS-D 200 Control Unit
• MCS-D 2073 Delegate / Chairman Station
• MCS-D 202 Interpreter Stations
• MCS-D 3121 Delegate Station and MCS-D 3123 Chairman Station
• MCS-D 3171 Delegate Station and MCS-D 3173 Chairman Station
• Cabling via “NetRateBus”
The NetRateBus is a special kind of cabling which allows operating all services such as microphone channels, interpreting
channels, control, network, telephone and safety precautions simultaneously on 54 channels without any interferences.
The NetRateBus allows different types of cabling such as in a daisy chain, star or tree structure with any branch. The setup is
clear and simple.
One conference system can consist of a maximum of 1,400 microphone units.
For the digital interpreter stations there is no additional control unit needed.
Third party devices such as PCs, automatic cameras with pan, tilt, zoom, recording devices, output devices or display screen in
the hall can be connected.
With the MultiSession Management several meetings can be controlled simultanously with one control unit and the software.
The individual conference rooms can be combined to one large group or conference room by changing the software settings
accordingly.

under the control unit.
• Make sure that the mains switch, mains plug and all connection on the rear of the device are easily accessible.
3.2.6
How to supply the system
• All microphone stations, D/A interfaces and adapters are powered via the system. They do not have their own power supply.
• The number of the required power supply units depends on the number of microphone stations and the system set-up
including different cable lengths and operating mode.
• The following list shows how many devices such as microphone stations, interfaces and adapters can be powered by the
system.
MCS-D 200 control unit with 1 power pack (= 2 A)
MCS-D 200 control unit with 2 power packs (= 4 A)
for approx. 15 microphone stations
for approx. 30 microphone stations
When the system is extended with additional power supply units:
Power supply unit with 1 power pack (= 2 A)
for approx. 15 microphone stations
Power supply unit with 2 power packs (= 4 A)
for approx. 30 microphone stations
Power supply unit with 3 power packs (= 6 A)
for approx. 45 microphone stations
Note:
In this rule of thumb, an adapter (CA 4212/13/14 or CA 4222/23/24) approximately counts as half a microphone station.
Example of a system set-up:
1 MCS-D 200 control unit with 2 power packs . . . . . . . . . . . . 10 MCS-D 202 interpreter stations
+ 1 D/A interface
+ 2 adapters
+
1 Power supply unit with 2 power packs . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . for 30 microphone stations

Delegate IDs
For identifying a device identification number (ID) should be assigned to each delegate station. Basically, the system can be
operated without the organisation of ID numbers. But for special functions such as functions of a chairman station, phoning
and some data bank manangement functions the organisation of the IDs of the microphone stations is absolutely necessary for
a smooth meeting. In order to avoid conflicts each ID number can be assigned only once. For the telephone function, e.g. the
ID numbers are used as device telephone numbers which will appear in a telephone list in the menu.
Addressing is defined as assigning an individual number to a certain device - for example – delegate station no. 1 shall be
ID-no. 0001, delegate station no. 2 shall be ID-no. 0002, and so on.

4.2 Connection
4.2.1
Control unit – power supply unit
• The MCS-D 200 control unit and the power supply unit are connected via the NetRateBus socket 8 . Refer also to chapter 8.
“Set-up examples”.
Warning: Connected devices (e.g. adapters or Digital/Analog interfaces) are powered by the MCS-D 200 control unit and
have to be considered in power calculations.
• Each unit which is connected to a NetRateBus socket is powered by the MCS-D 200 when it is switched on. It is not important
if the power supply unit is switched on or off. A Digital/Analog interface or adapter connected to the NetRateBus sockets
would be powered by the power converter of the MCS-D 200. These sockets are not the power outputs for the microphone
stations, adapter or interfaces.
4.2.2
Microphone stations - power supply unit
• Connect microphone stations, Digital/Analog interfaces and adapters to the EXTENSION PORTS 9 angeschlossen.
• Any device which is connected to an EXTENSION PORT, is powered by the power converters 1-3 of the CA 4115/30/45 power
supply unit, when the MCS-D 200 control unit and the power supply unit are switched on. This is indicated by the illuminated
LEDs 1-3.
4.3 How to switch on the power supply unit
• Check all connections before switching on.
• Stand-by: A switched-on power supply unit is in stand-by mode when the mains switch is illuminated, but the power
converters 1-3 cannot emit power via the EXTENSION PORTS 9 , because the MCS-D 200 control unit is not yet switched on.
In this case neither the “POWER” LED 2 nor the power converter LEDs 1-3 3 will illuminate.
• We recommend switching on the devices as described in the following:
1. Switch on all power supply units first. The mains switch 1 will illuminate and indicate the stand-by mode.
2. Switch on the MCS-D 200 control unit. The “POWER” LED 2 of the MCS-D 200 will illuminate.
Then the “POWER” LED 2 of each power supply unit will illuminate.
• Then the power converters 1-3 can emit power via the EXTENSION PORTS 9 . The illuminated power converter LEDs 1-3 3
display the appropriate power supply unit:
LED 1
CA 4115 (1 power converter for 2 A)
LED 1 + 2
CA 4130 (2 power converters for 4 A)
LED 1 + 2 + 3
CA 4145 (3 power converters for 6 A).
• The green Power-LED 2 of the power supply unit will illuminate when the MCS-D 200 control unit is switched on and a bus
signal is produced, no matter if the mains switch 1 of the power supply unit is switched on or off.
• The LEDs indicate the following:
GREEN:
OFF:
- the MCS-D 200 control unit is switched on
- the power supply unit is switched on
- the power converter emits power via the EXTENSION
PORTS
- the MCS-D 200 control unit is switched off
- the power supply unit is switched off
- the power converter is not installed or defective

Output channels A and B
Each interpreter station has two buttons for the output channels A and B. The interpreter can directly switch from output A to
B, and vice versa. Both channels may be pre-selected. With the PRE SELECT buttons you can select a free output channel. “A” is
the default output channel which is automatically defined when the system is started. Press the appropriate output channel
button to select channel A or B; the appropriate LED will illuminate. An output channel will be occupied when the microphone
is opened!

How to assign the interpreter ID
Each interpreter station should be specified with an identification number (ID) in order to render an address. This may be done
via the INTERPRETER IDs menu of the MCS-D 200 control unit (refer also to chapter 3.3.8 “Interpreter IDs”).
Optional, the identification numbers may directly be assigned at each interpreter station one after the other. This way, you will
always have an overview of the system, especially of large systems.
An interpreter station ID (identification number) is composed of the BOOTH ID and the DEVICE ID. Please make sure that every
identification number is only assigned once in order to avoid conflicts. Interpreter stations of different booths may have the
same DEVICE ID.
For example:
Booth 1: MCS-D 202 microphone station (1): 01-0001
MCS-D 202 microphone station (2): 01-0002
Booth 2: MCS-D 202 microphone station (1): 02-0001
MCS-D 202 microphone station (2): 02-0002
01-0001= MICROPHONE STATION ID
01 = BOOTH
0002 = DEVICE ID
Activate SET ID mode

How to save settings on a chip card
The following settings can be saved on a chip card after the languages have been programmed (refer to “How to program the
relay channel buttons 1-3” and “How to program the output channels A and B”).
• Relay channel 1-3 with the channel that is transmitted via headphones whenever the REL/OR switch is switched to REL (arrow
marks the channel).
• Output channels A + B with the selected channel that is occupied when the microphone is turned on (arrow marks the channel).
For a later session, simply insert the chip card to retrieve the settings. For this, the following conditions are necessary:
• The MCS-D 202 interpreter station must be configured and the meeting started.
• The language channels must be defined (refer to chapter 3.3.5 “Define Channels”) and added to the list of all session channels
(refer to chapter 3.3.4.2 “Channel List”).
• The system settings always have priority to chip card settings. For example, if channel A or B is locked via iCNS (settings), the
channel cannot be de-locked simply by loading the chip card settings.
• Warning: The chip card can only be read when the microphone is turned off.
How to put the chip card into the chip card reader
Insert the chip card so that you can read the chip card number.

Setup of the microphone stations in a circle
With redundancy i.e. powering the microphone stations on both sides, any cable of the circle can be removed during operation
without interrupting the meeting. All microphone stations are then powered on one side. In this way a microphone station can
be replaced during operation for example.
A condition for redundancy is that all cable lengths had been selected in a way that a single-sided powering could cover the
power requirement.
