Antennae
Fully extend the antennae and set them at an angle of 60° between each antenna. The
two antennae are positioned this way to achieve the best pick-up reception.
Setting up
1. Place the NE 100 diversity receiver in the same room or area as the transmitters. Ensure
that the NE 100 is installed as close as possible to the mixing console or amplifier so that
all indications can be seen at all times.
2. Do not place the NE 100 diversity receiver near digitally controlled equipment.
3. Connect the XLR-output (6) to the corresponding input of the mixing console or amplifier.
Using the output level control (5) you can adjust the gain.
4. Make sure the mains voltage shown on the power supply unit corresponds to the local
mains voltage.
5. Connect the power supply unit to the receiver and to AC power. The receiver has no
separate On/Off switch. The power On / Mute LED (2) is illuminated red.
6. To adjust the input gain turn the squelch control (4) to maximum.
7. If the On/Mute LED (2) is illuminated green when there is no transmitter switched on, there
is RF noise present. Turn the squelch control (4) counter clockwise to minimum until the RF
noise is disappeared.
8. As soon as you switch on the transmitter, the On/Mute LED (2) should go out and the
diversity LEDs (3) indicate which antenna input is active.

1.3
Diversity Indication of the Receiving Channel
The NE 100 has two separate receiving circuits for each of the antennae A and B. The
signal with the better S/N ratio is silently switched to the output. The received diversity channel
A or B is shown on the LEDs (3).
1.5
Squelch
Switch off the transmitter before you change the squelch. Now the receiver should be
muted. If it is not, then slowly adjust the squelch (4) until all unwanted signals are muted. As
soon as the receiver has been muted, the On/Mute LED (2) is illuminated red. Setting the level
too high, however, will reduce the range of your system.
Squelch control (4) to the left = minimum range
Squelch control (4) to the right = maximum range - Caution: Interferences can occur!
17
1.6
Setting the Gain
First adjust the gain of your transmitter (only TS 100; refer to chapter 3.3). Once the
transmitter gain is optimised, it is necessary to match the receiver’s output gain to your mixing
console or PA system. Adjust the gain control (5). Setting the gain too high may cause distortion.

Setting up
1. Switch on the NE 100 receiver.
2. Rotate the microphone under the microphone head (1) counter clockwise and carefully
slide the transmitter shaft down. Insert two 1.5 V alkaline batteries (AAA type - micro).
Observe the polarity marks.
3. Slide the transmitter into the shaft again and rotate the microphone clockwise to lock.
4. Switch on the microphone by switching the On/Off switch (4) to the “On” position. The
Power On battery condition LED (3) is illuminated. If the transmitter is properly working
one of the diversity LEDs of the NE 100 receiver should be illuminated.
5. Make sure that the mute switch (5) is switched to the “Off” position. The mute switch (5)
is for muting the transmitter during pauses of speech. Please note that the microphone is
still consuming power when it is muted.
6. When the battery capacity is too low for operation, the power on battery condition LED (3)
will flash for around 1 hour before the transmitter switches off (LED (3) goes out).
19
7. To avoid popping, try holding the microphone at a slight angle below your mouth.
8. To avoid covering the integrated antenna by your hand, do not hold the microphone at
the microphone head as this could reduce the transmission strength. Furthermore, feedback
can occur.
2.3
Maintenance
Protect the microphone from humidity, knocks and shock. Avoid dropping the microphone at all times.
If your microphone sounds dull, clean the integrated foam pop shield. To do this, follow the
instructions below.
• SDM 169: Unscrew the microphone upper basket counter clockwise.
SDM 159, SEM 181: Unscrew the whole microphone basket clockwise.
• Pull out the foam pop shield and clean it under clear running water. If necessary, use a mild
washing-up liquid. Dry it afterwards with a hairdryer or allow it to dry overnight.
• Place the dry pop shield inside the microphone basket and replace the microphone basket
by screwing it on clockwise or counter clockwise.

2. Connect the supplied microphone or instrument cable to the jack socket (4).
3. Switch on the beltpack transmitter by switching the On / Off switch (6) to the “On” position.
The power on battery condition LED (5) is illuminated green when the battery has been
inserted correctly and has full capacity. If the transmitter is properly working, one of the
diversity LEDs of the NE 100 receiver should be illuminated.
4. Make sure that the mute switch (1) is switched to the “Off” position. The mute switch (1)
is for muting the transmitter during pauses of speech. Please note that the microphone is
still consuming power when it is muted.
5. When the battery capacity is too low for operation, the power on battery condition LED (5)
will flash for around 1 hour before the transmitter switches off (LED (5) goes out).
Adjusting Input Gain
1. Switch on the NE 100 diversity receiver.
2. Switch the transmitter on by switching the On / Off switch (6) to the “On” position. Turn
the gain control (3) to minimum sensitivity (fully counter clockwise).
3. If you have no suitable sound source, you can speak into the microphone at the maximum
level you expect to use. We recommend you choose a “U”, because a spoken “U” has a
relatively good sine-shape. Turn the gain control (3) clockwise until the peak LED (2) does
not illuminate or should only flash momentarily during the loudest passages.
Important:
There are various microphones available for the TS 100. As their characteristics vary, the sensitivity
has to be re-adjusted with each change of microphone.

General Instructions for all Transmitters
Battery Change
Switch the transmitter off before changing the battery (On / Off switch to the “Off” position).
If you do not intend to use the transmitter for several weeks or months, please remove the
battery as it can leak after some time and damage parts of the transmitter. Even “leak
proof” batteries are no guarantee that they will not leak after some time. Failing to
comply will render the warranty null and void.
Different brands of batteries may vary in length of up to 2 - 3 mm. When you change the
battery make sure there is a good contact and adjust the spring in the battery compartment
if necessary.
Clean the battery contacts from time to time. Use a soft cloth or cotton swab moistened
with methylated spirits or alcohol.
Please do not throw used battery packs away with your household rubbish, but take them
to your local collection points.
When using rechargeable batteries use conventional chargers.
21
4.2
Before the Soundcheck
1. Make sure that the transmitter and receiver are on the same frequency (refer to type
plate).
2. Check the transmitter battery and replace or recharge it if necessary. Use fresh alkaline
batteries only.
3. Check the performance area for dropouts (i.e. areas where poor reception is encountered).
If you find any dropouts try to eliminate them by repositioning the antennae or the receiver.
4. Adjust the sensitivity of the receiver and beltpack transmitter correctly to avoid distortions.
5. Try and avoid feedback, especially when you use omnidirectional microphones (e.g. MCE 50).
4.3
What to do about Feedback
Feedback is caused when the microphone is too close to a loudspeaker.
We recommend:
• Reduce the volume of the sound system.
• Move away from the loudspeaker.
• Turn the microphone away from the loudspeaker.
• Use a microphone with a cardioid, hypercardioid or supercardioid polar pattern.
Caution:
Feedback can also be caused if the sensitivity has been adjusted too high. In this case the
transmitter is no longer working in the linear range, but in the limiter range. Therefore, if the
level of the input sound drops, the gain is increased and feedback can occur. Turning down the
input sensitivity of the transmitter to the correct position will prevent this from happening.
