What is a System 5cr
Throughout this manual, the terms System 5 and System 5cr are both
used to refer to the same product.
The System 5 provides central control for small audio/video installations.
The five inputs accept video formats from composite, S-video and
computer-video sources, together with line-level audio. In addition to
being a video/audio switcher, the System 5 combines the functions of
several devices, including projector control for LCD, DLP and Plasma
Displays. A “room” function allows control of such things as lighting or a
display screen and infrared “learning” adds control for one of many
different projectors.

Controlling the System
The System 5 functions as a switcher as it comes out of the box.
However, to have projector control, it must be programmed. This can be
done by learning projector IR commands or by loading a set of commands
from Extron’s IR library into its memory. The IR library, as well as the
latest control software is available at www.extron.com. Control of the
System 5 and other devices can be done in several ways:
• The front panel
• Windows® control software from a PC
• Through RS-232 port by a PC, a touch screen panel, or any other device
capable of sending and receiving the serial port protocol.
• Optional control pads (SCP 100) can be mounted in a wall, or podium,
and hard-wired to the System 5. Each SCP 100 replicates the front panel
functions and can receive IR signals, and pass them to the System 5.
• The IR 40 remote control has each of the System 5 front panel functions.
1-1
Extron • System 5cr Switcher • User’s Manual
Chapter 1 • Introduction and Features
Infrared Learning for System Control
The IR receiver window on the front panel also serves as a learning port
to add IR signals from other sources to the System 5 panel functions.
Then, when a panel function is selected, the learned IR signal is
transmitted into the room through the hard-wired IR emitter, or the
optional IR Broadcaster, to be received by the projector. IR commands for
the projector can be associated with each of the Display buttons (Power,
Mute and Mode) on the front panel as well as with each of the five input
buttons. Thus the System 5 switcher can control the projector. Stored
commands (learned or uploaded) in the System 5 memory are also
effective when using the IR 40, SCP 100 or RS-232 controls.
As an example, IR commands for the projector shown in Figure 1-1 can
be stored in the System 5 memory such that when the VID1 input is
selected, the projector will switch to its composite video mode. Selecting
VID2 input could send a command to tell the projector to switch to S-video
mode.

(female HD 15 pin) connector (PC1). This allows for quick connection of a
laptop computer without having to access the rear panel of the switcher.
• Computer video may also be connected through BNC connectors to the
PC2 and PC3 inputs, through an interface, such as an RGB 406, as
shown in Figure 1-1.
• The VID1 and VID2 inputs can be either composite or S-video signals,
both through BNC connectors.
Outputs
• The System 5 provides video outputs for RGBS, RGBHV, Composite and
S-video formats. One output is active at any one time.
• Audio preamp output for either balanced or unbalanced audio signals is
available through a 5-pole, captive screw connector.
• An internal, 12 watt/channel audio amplifier drives non-powered speakers.
• Stored IR commands output through emitter or broadcaster.

Options and Accessories
The System 5 is more than just a system switcher. Standard and optional
features make it the control center for a small A/V system by adding
control of other things in the room as part of the system design. Two of
these standard features include:
• Room control allows for relay control of lights, window coverings, display
screen, or most anything the system designer wants to use it for.
• An IR transmitter distributes all incoming IR signals, together with the
learned commands in the immediate area.
Optional equipment includes:
• Current sensor (detects when projector power is on)
• Optional remote keypad, SCP 100 (1 or 2)
• IR broadcast device (transmits IR signals over a wide area)
Figure 1-2. System 5 with accessories and options
The System 5 combines switching, room control and projector control,
each of which is controlled at the front panel, by hard-wired control pad
(SCP 100) and by IR remote control (IR 40). The switcher can be used to
control video and audio input settings, display functions such as power,
mute and video modes, and room controls, such as lowering or raising a
display screen or powering lights on or off.

Installation in a Rack, on a Wall or Under a Table
The System 5cr comes with two sets of mounting brackets. One set is for
mounting under a table or on a wall and the second set is for rack
mounting. Either set is attached to the System 5 by four #8 screws.
When mounted under a table on a wall, the bracket will extend
approximately 1/4 inch above the top surface of the System 5 enclosure,
as shown in Figure 2-1. This is designed to have an air space between
the System 5 enclosure and the surface it is mounted on.
A second set of brackets (top example) has slotted holes that face
forward to accommodate rack-mounting hardware. When attached to the
System 5 enclosure, the forward-facing holes will align with the holes in a
standard rack.

3.5 mm, 5-pole captive screw connectors are used for the audio inputs
and one output, as well as for accessories. These include:
• Aux1 & Aux2 – SCP 100 remote panels (2 optional)
• Relay – Room/relay custom control (standard feature)
• Comm – projector control through the standard IR Emitter or the optional
IR Broadcaster.
One three-contact stereo phono-type of connector is provided for the
optional Display Power Sensor. This device detects when the projector
power is on.
All connectors are provided. Cables are the responsibility of the installer.
The two standard accessories described in this section are the Infrared
Emitter and the Room/Relay custom control. Figures 2-7, 8 and 9 show
accessory connections. Optional devices (SCP 100, the IR Broadcaster
and the Power Sensor) are also covered in their separate user’s guides
and are summarized in Appendix B of this manual.
Comm Connector and Infrared Emitter
This connector is for projector control,
and can be used in different ways:
1a. Connect the IR Emitter (included) to
transmit all of the “learned” IR
commands to the projector. The IR
Emitter includes a black cable with two
wires, one has a white stripe. Insert the
wire with the white stripe into the
carrier/signal pin (C) and the solid black
wire to either ground contact (B or D).
1b. If a wired remote can be plugged into
the projector, that cable will use pins A
(signal) and B, as shown in Figure 2-7.
Figure 2-8. The IR Emitter can be used from the Comm connector or through an IR Broadcaster.
2. To install and use the optional IR Broadcaster, and to use emitter with the
IR Broadcaster, see user’s guide 68-392-02. For some projectors, the IR
Emitter must be used with the broadcaster.
The standard IR Emitter transmits infrared signals over a short, narrow
range, while the IR Broadcaster covers a wider, longer area. Both of these
devices transmit only the IR commands that have been stored in the
System 5, either through “learning” or by uploading from Extron’s IR
library. If the broadcaster is installed, the emitter may not be needed.
Room/Relay Connector
The Room Relay contacts are shown in Figure 2-9. One relay has two
sets of contacts – one set is normally closed and the other is normally
open. When the Room function is active, the normally closed contacts are
open and the normally open contacts are closed.

Using the System 5cr
________ In addition to the basic function of each of the panel buttons described
here, there are also setup procedures that use many of the same buttons
and controls. Each of the Input and Display buttons is capable of
“learning” an IR command. The Display Power button must learn both
power on and power off for the projector. The setup procedures are
described later in this section.
Front Panel Controls and Indicators
On power up, all of the LEDs light and then go off, except for the Power
LED and the LED for the input last selected. On the rear panel, the LED
for the selected input format will be lit.
1
Power and Room
Power LED – Indicates when the System 5 has power.
Room Button and LED – These work with the relay contact connections
provided on the rear panel of the System 5. The button can activate/
deactivate a room condition, such as turn lights on/off and raise/lower a
viewing screen. The LED indicates that the condition is active. Exactly
how the feature is used depends upon the user-defined application and
what is connected to the “Relay” connector on the rear panel.
Figure 3-1a. Front Panel Buttons and Indicators
The Room button can be set to operate in either of two ways: latching
(press on, press off) or momentary (press on, off after time-out). The timeout value can only be set through the Windows® Control Program.
_______ For example, pressing the Room button once could lower a screen and
turn room lights off and the LED will remain lit. Press the button again to
turn the room lights on, raise the viewing screen and the LED goes out.
Display – (customized for the projector being used)
________ These buttons only function after being programmed, either by “learning”,
or by loading the projector’s commands from Extron’s IR library. Learning
is described in the Setup Mode procedures later in this chapter.
2
Power – After this button has been programmed for the projector’s IR
remote commands, it will toggle power to the display device on or off.
Because there is a warm up delay and a cool down delay for many
projectors, the Display Power LED will blink fast during projector
power up and will blink slowly during projector power down. The
blinking time is generated within the System 5; it does not come from
the projector. Its duration can be programmed through RS-232.
Mute – After this button has been programmed for the projector’s video
mute signal, it will function as the Display Mute on/off switch.
Mode – Effective on display devices that do not automatically detect the
type of video signal, this button can be programmed to change the
mode of the display device between computer-video, composite video
and S-video. This can duplicate the single-button (step) mode function
found on some projector remote controls.

Operating the System 5cr • Chapter 3
Configuration Setup from the Front Panel
For the System 5 switcher to control other equipment in the A/V system, it
must be configured from the front panel, or through an RS-232 device.
This cannot be done from an IR 40 or SCP 100. See Chapter 4 for
Windows® Control program and Appendix A for RS-232 instructions.
Infrared Programs and Libraries
Extron provides a library of drivers for most projectors. To download a
driver from the library, see the procedures located in Chapter 4. A typical
projector driver assigns projector IR commands to the System 5 panel
functions such that the Display Power, Mute and Mode functions can
control the projector. Also, once programmed, selecting PC1, PC2 or PC3
inputs can set the projector to RGB format, while VID1 and VID2 can set
the projector to either S-video or Composite Video. Selection can be from
the front panel or by remote. To configure the System 5 from the front
panel, use the following procedures.
Enter Setup (Config) Mode
Each of the procedures in this section is done from Setup (or Config)
Mode. Once in Setup Mode (Config LED = On),
you may go from one procedure to another
without returning to Normal Mode.
To enter Setup Mode, press and hold all 3
Display buttons (Power/Mute/Mode) for 2
seconds. The Config LED lights. Go to the
appropriate procedure. Pressing the same 3
buttons will also exit Setup (Config) mode.
Figure 3-2a. Enter Setup Mode from the Front Panel.
Clear Configuration(s)
To Clear existing configuration(s) to the factory default, from Setup Mode,
double-click the Room button. The Room LED blinks for 8 seconds.
During that time, do one of the following:
Clear One – press the desired button to clear only its IR configuration.
Clear ALL – press all 3 Display buttons (Power/Mute/Mode) at the same
time for 2 seconds to reset all IR and other settings to factory defaults.
Preset Audio Input Attenuation Levels
For the Audio Volume control to act as a “master” control for all inputs, all
audio inputs must be set for same level. With audio input signals
connected and active, enter Setup Mode and do the following:
1a. Press the input button twice (double-click) for the audio input to be
adjusted. The input LED blinks.
2a. Slowly adjust the Volume knob up (cw) until Clip LED is On or blinking
frequently with changes in sound level.
3a. Adjust Volume down (ccw) just until Clip LED is Off or blinks occasionally
as the level peaks.
4a. Press the input button again to save the setting.
5a. Repeat steps 1a through 4a for each audio input.
6a. While still in Config mode, you may go directly to another procedure, wait
for 20 second time-out or press and hold all 3 Display buttons for 2
seconds to force a return to normal operation.
Figure 3-2b. Set the audio input attenuation to the same levels.

Select format for VID1 and/or VID2.
To set these two inputs for either Composite or S-video, in Config Mode,
do the following:
1b. Press and hold the Room button until finished with this operation.
After 2 seconds, one of the VID1 LEDs lights.
2b. Press VID1 to toggle between VID (Video) and Y/C (S-video) formats.
3b. Repeat step 2b to select the format to set the format for the VID2 input.
4b. Release the Room button to go back to Config mode.
5b. While in Config mode, you may go directly to another procedure, wait for
20 second time-out or press all 3 Display buttons for 2 seconds to exit.
Figure 3-2c. Select input format for VID1 and VID2.
Learn Infrared Signals from other devices’ remote controls
This procedure is only necessary if the IR driver is
not available for the system projector, or is not
complete. A flow chart of the learning procedure is
shown in Figure 3-2d and a table of LED codes is
shown in Figure 3-2e. In Setup Mode, do this:
1c. Press the panel button to be programmed and hold
it for 2 seconds. The Config LED blinks.
2c. Point the IR remote source at the System 5 IR
Remote window and press the button briefly, but
firmly, for the signal to be “learned”.
Figure 3-2d. Learn infrared signals from other remotes.
_______ It may be necessary to hold remote as near as 1/2 inch and point it
directly into the IR window. It may also help to block out ambient light,
such as from fluorescent sources.
The Config LED remains On while TX & Retry LEDs flash to indicate
that the operation is complete. (If Retry blinks once and TX - Off, repeat
this step). See LED codes in Figure 3-2e below.
_______ The Display Power button learns 2 signals. After learning the 1st signal
(e.g. Power On), the Config and Retry LEDs blink to indicate that it is
ready to learn the second signal (Power Off). Double-click the Power
button and repeat step 2c to learn the second signal.
3c. Repeat steps 1c and 2c to program the next button.
4c. While in Config mode, you may go directly to another procedure, wait for
20 second time-out or hold all 3 Display buttons for 2 seconds to exit.
________ Once the display device (projector) has been programmed to operate
from the System 5cr, those same control functions should not be done
from the projector because the System 5 has no way of knowing what was
done at the projector. That is, if the projector was turned on at the
System 5 and turned off from the projector panel, the System 5 thinks the
projector is still on.

Remote Operation
________ See inset (top, right)
to install batteries.
The System 5
includes one infrared
remote control (IR 40)
and can have one or
two optional remote
control panels (SCP
100). Each of these
devices replicate the
front panel controls
for normal operation.
Learning and other
things done in Setup
Mode cannot be done
from these remote devices.
The IR 40, shown in Figure
3-3, uses + and - buttons for
Volume up and down.
The Function and Enter buttons
on the IR 40 do not affect the
System 5 operation.
Figure 3-3. The IR 40 has the same controls as the front panel.
The optional SCP 100 panels can be
mounted in a wall or piece of furniture,
such as a desk or podium. In addition to
duplicating front panel controls, they also
receive IR 40 signals and pass them to
the System 5. Infrared signals from other
devices are blocked at the System 5, and
do not pass on to the IR emitter or
broadcaster.
Figure 3-4. The optional SCP 100 also passes IR 40 signals to the System 5.
Other ways to control the System 5 include using the RS-232 serial port.
This can be through a host, such as a touch-screen panel or a PC, using
the Windows® operating system. RS-232 programming is covered in
Appendix A of this manual.
Certain operations can be done only through Extron’s System 5cr Control
Program, these include:
• Room Relay Mode (Latched/Momentary)
• (projector) Power Up/Down Delay times
• Auto Set Attenuators (set all audio input to the same level).
The use of Extron’s Windows® Control Program is covered in Chapter 4

panel. There are two different panel screens:
• Executive Mode panel, shown here is a minimum
version, which allows input selection only.
• Configure Unit (next page) includes all front panel, plus
other configuration capabilities. Some operations can be
done only through this Windows program.
Figure 4-4. Example of Executive mode screen for the System 5.
The “Normal” operation panel is like the one shown in the Help screen in
Figure 4-3. Some of the panel controls are explained on the following
page. Some functions can only be done through this panel.
The System 5 comes with factory defaults and no “learned” IR commands
stored in memory. Learning IR codes from the projector’s remote control
is covered on page 3-4. Panel settings made using this software, together
with stored IR codes (learned or loaded) may be saved as a system file
(page 4-4) and restored at another time.

Power Up/Down Delay times
1 Many projectors (LCD, DLP, etc.) have a warm-up and cool-down cycle.
During these times, the projector may not accept commands. The times
for each projector may be different. The System 5 has timers that can be
adjusted to represent these delay times, thereby warning the operator not
to send commands while the Power LED is blinking. Slide the scroll bar
for Pwr-Up Delay and/or for Pwr-Dn Delay to match the times required by
the projector being used with the System 5. These settings determine how
long the Display Power LED on the front panel blinks during power up and
power down of the projector. These settings do not control the projector
times; they simulate it. Settings are from 10 to 300 seconds (5 minutes),
in 10 second steps. The factory default is 30 seconds.
Auto Set Attenuators (set all audio input to the same level)
2 With the audio input sources active, click this button to automatically
preset each input to its “Clip” level. Once this is done, the Volume control
(from the front panel, a host or remote SCP 100) will operate as the
master Volume control.
Room Relay Mode (Latched/Momentary)
3 This allows the selection of two modes for customizing the operation of
the Room control function. Depending upon what the designer wants the
function to control, it can operate in either of two ways.
• Latched – click this button to make the Room button operate as follows:
press to activate the relay and press again to deactivate (unlatch) it.
• Momentary – click this button to make the Room button operate as
follows: press the Room button to activate; deactivation takes place after
a prescribed time, as set by sliding the scroll button up or down. The time
value is displayed from 1/8 to 2 seconds, in 1/8 second steps.
________ The Windows® Control Program is the only way to adjust the time
duration for this mode.
Figure 4-5. Example of the System 5 operational screen.
In the System 5 Control program, select one of the Room Relay Mode
buttons. If Momentary is selected, move the scroll bar and observe the
time duration displayed in the box below the scroll bar. Settings are from
1/8 to 2 seconds, in 1/8 second steps. Factory default is for Momentary
Mode at 1/8 second. Thus, when the Room button is pressed, the relay is
active for 0.125 seconds and then becomes inactive.

RGB Delay Times
4
The RGB delay time switches the video off before switching the sync off.
It then switches the sync for the new input before switching the video on.
This assures a stable image on the screen. RGB Delay can be set from
this Windows panel. Slide the scroll bar to select from 0 seconds to 5
seconds, in 0.5 second steps.
5
These options may not be the same on all systems. Each one is
explained in the Help screen by clicking on the panel option. Repeat
Power Down is for projectors that require a second power down command
as confirmation. Click the check box to activate the desired option.

Loading Projector Drivers
A sub-folder under the System 5 folder is used to store the user’s library
of projector drivers.
To view which commands are in a particular driver, without loading it,
launch the System 5 control software in Emulation Mode (instead of
selecting a Comm port). You
will be asked to select from a
list of drivers. Double-click
the Drivers folder to open it
and select a projector. Each
driver (.5cr) loads the IR
commands for that projector
into the System 5 memory.
During normal operation,
certain System 5 functions
will send out associated IR
signals to the projector.
Figure 4-8. Example of the Drivers Folder containing Projector drivers, with IR codes.
Another example for using this folder would be to load the driver for a
different projector. This could be the user’s own driver library.

Figure B-1 illustrates the options and accessories that operate with the
System 5. The standard accessories installation is covered in Chapter 2
and each option has its own User’s Guide. This section summarizes the
three options: SCP 100, IR Broadcaster and Display Power Sensor.
Figure B-1. The options connectors are located to the right side of the rear panel.
All of the necessary connectors are provided with the products, but cables
must be custom made according to the requirements of the installation.
The Display Power Sensor is also shown in Figure B-1. Its cable is oneto-one, ring = signal, tip = +12 volts and sleeve = ground. The optional IR
Broadcaster uses the same contact assignments.
________ When connecting a Power Sensor or IR Broadcaster, remember that the
System 5 supplies the +12 volts to the tip of the connector. Therefore the
cable should be plugged into the option device before connecting it to the
System 5 rear panel, where the voltage source is.
________ Do not plug any other devices into the rear panel connectors, except
those described here.
For detailed instructions, see appropriate document.

Glossary of terms
Following is a list of terms taken from Extron’s Glossary.
AC Reset –
Refers to status that changes when power is removed from a device. Many
electronic devices have live power inside, even after “Power off” has been
initiated from a panel or remote control device. This is not the same as “AC
Reset”, when power is removed at the AC cord.
Attenuation –
The decrease in magnitude (of a signal).
Audio follow –
A term used when audio is tied to other signals, such as video, and they are
switched together. (The opposite of Breakaway)
Balanced Audio –
A method that uses three conductors for one audio signal. They are plus (+),
minus (-) and ground. The ground conductor is strictly for shielding, and does not
carry any signal. Also differential audio.
Bandwidth –
A frequency range, or “band” of frequencies, within which a device operates. In
audio and video, it is the band of frequencies that can pass through a device
without significant loss or distortion. The higher the bandwidth, the sharper the
picture; low bandwidth can cause a “fuzzy” picture.
Breakaway –
The ability to separate signals for the purpose of switching them independently.
For example: an audio and video signal from the same source may be “broken
away” and switched to different destinations. The opposite of the term “follow”.
Buffer –
Generally referred to as a unity gain amplifier used to isolate the signal source
from the load. This is for both digital and analog signals.
Chroma –
The color information (hue and saturation), independent of luma intensity. Black,
gray, and white objects do not have chroma characteristics.
Chroma Signal –
Part of a television signal containing the color information. Abbreviated as “C”.
Clip, Clipping –
The level at which a signal excursion begins to exceed limits of the circuit and
flattens out, distorting the signal. When setting audio attenuation, the clip level
can be defined as a level short of the distortion point, thus allowing “headroom”
and maintaining the signal’s fidelity.
Composite Sync –
A signal consisting of horizontal sync pulses, vertical sync pulses, and equalizing
pulses only, with no signal reference level. Also referred to as RGBS.
Composite Video –
A combined signal which includes luma black and white, chroma (color), blanking
Differential Audio –
See Balanced Audio.
DLP –
Digital Light Processing – Also DMD (Digital Micro-mirror Device). Uses an array
of mirrors that move independently, reflecting light to compose the picture.
Gain –
A term used to denote an increase in signal power or voltage produced by an
amplifier in transmitting a signal from one point to another. The amount of gain is
usually expressed in decibels above a reference level. Opposite of Attenuation.
Headroom –
The margin between a nominal operating signal level and peak clipping
(distortion) level. See Clipping.
High Impedance
(Hi Z/High Z) – This is typically 10k ohms or greater. In video, when the signal is
not terminated locally, there may be a switch for Hi Z or some termination value
(75 ohms). Hi Z is used if termination is provided by another device.
IR Learning –
The ability of a device to receive and store infrared commands for other devices,
such as the projector. With Extron’s System 5, each command is assigned to a
system operation (such as selecting an input). When an operation is executed,
B-3
Extron • System 5cr Switcher • User’s Manual
Appendix B • Reference
the associated (learned) command is then transmitted through an IR emitter or
broadcaster to the projector, where it is executed. For example, if input #3 is
S-video, selecting that input also sends a signal to the projector to switch to
S-video mode. See IR library.
IR Library –
A library of infrared commands for video projectors that can be used with Extron’s
System 5 switcher. Each library file has a set of commands for a specific
projector, or series of projectors. The files are available at Extron’s web site and
for uploading to the System 5 memory. Once installed, appropriate IR commands
are assigned to operational functions, which are transmitted when that function is
activated, allowing the System to control the projector. See IR learning.
Latching –
For a device that has two states, such as a relay or a switch, latching means that
once put into the active state, the condition remains until it is taken out of that
state by some action. Often the same action latches and unlatches alternately. In
the System 5, the Room relay can operate in two modes: latching or momentary.
LCD –
Liquid crystal display – A panel that utilizes two transparent sheets of polarizing
material with a liquid containing rod-shaped crystals between. When a current is
applied to specific pixel-like areas, those crystals align to create dark images. The
dark areas are combined with light areas to create text and images on the panel.
LCD panels do not emit light but are often backlit or side-lit for better viewing.
LCD panel –
A device used to project video images through a liquid crystal display and an
overhead projector onto a large screen. The panel is placed over the stage of an
overhead projector, projecting the computer display onto a screen.
LCD projector –
Utilizing the LCD technique, these projectors separate the red, green and blue
information to three different LCD panels. Since LCD panels do not produce
color, the appropriate colored light is then passed through each panel and
combined to exit through the projector lens and onto a viewing screen.
Level (audio) –
A term used with signal voltage, power, strength or volume. Audio level can be
expressed as attenuation (less than the original) or gain (more than original).
Library –
See IR Library.
Luma –
This is the signal that represents brightness in a video picture. Luma is any value
between black and white. In mathematical equations, luma is abbreviated as “Y”.
Relay –
In the System 5, a “room” function controlled from the front panel or by a remote
device, which provides normally open and normally closed contacts to a
connector, allowing the user to control other electrical devices.
RGB Delay –
When switching between video inputs, for a brief time, the signal out of the
switcher may be unstable while locking in on the new sync. RGB delay turns the
video on after the sync has stabilized, providing seamless switching.
Room (control) –
The “room” function controlled from the System 5 front panel or by a remote
device provides relay contacts to a connector, allowing the user to control other
devices electrically. Examples include window blinds, lighting, projection screen.
RS-232 –
A method of communicating between two devices using two lines: Tx to transmit
and Rx to receive. Tx on one end becomes Rx on the other. This standard does
not specify balanced control lines.
Serial Port –
A connection that allows communication with other devices over a single pair of
wires. The serial port is most often used with RS-232 protocol.
S-video –
The composite video signal is separated into the Luma (Y) and the Chroma (C).
Y–
In video, “Y” is an abbreviation for Luma.
