Important safety instructions
Important safety instructions
•
Read this instruction manual.
•
Keep this instruction manual. Always include this instruction manual when
passing the product on to third parties.
•
Heed all warnings and follow all instructions.
•
Only clean the product with a dry cloth.
•
Do not place the product near any heat sources such as radiators, stoves, or
other devices (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
•
Only use attachments/accessories specified by Sennheiser.
•
Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
Servicing is required if the device has been damaged in any way, liquid has
been spilled, objects have fallen inside, the product has been exposed to rain or
moisture, does not operate properly or has been dropped.
•
WARNING: To reduce the risk of short circuits, do not use the product near water
and do not expose it to rain or moisture.
Danger of hearing damage due to high volumes
This is a professional receiver. Commercial use is subject to the rules and regulations of the trade association responsible. Sennheiser, as the manufacturer, is
therefore obliged to expressly point out possible health risks arising from use.
The EK 1039 receiver is capable of producing sound pressure levels exceeding
85 dB (A). 85 dB (A) is the sound pressure corresponding to the maximum permissible volume which is by law (in some countries) allowed to affect your hearing for
the duration of a working day. It is used as a basis according to the specifications
of industrial medicine. Higher volumes or longer durations can damage your
hearing. At higher volumes, the duration must be shortened in order to prevent
hearing damage. The following are sure signs that you have been subjected to
excessive noise for too long a time:
•
You can hear ringing or whistling sounds in your ears.
•
You have the impression (even for a short time only) that you can no longer
hear high notes.
Inform the users of your Tourguide application about these facts and, if necessary,
ask them to set the volume to a medium level.

The squelch eliminates annoying noise when the transmitter is switched off or
when there is no longer sufficient transmitter power received by the receiver.
WARNING
Danger of hearing damage!
If you switch the squelch off or adjust the squelch threshold to a very
low value, loud hissing noise can occur in the receiver. The hissing
noise can be loud enough to cause hearing damage!
왘 Always make sure that the squelch is switched on.
왘 Before adjusting the squelch threshold, set the volume of the
headphone output to the minimum (see page 11).
왘 Never change the squelch threshold during a guided tour.
왘 Only switch off the squelch for servicing or test purposes.
왘 Adjust the squelch threshold – with the transmitter switched off – to the
lowest possible setting that suppresses hissing noise.
A high squelch threshold reduces the transmission range.
The squelch should only be switched off for servicing or test purposes. With the
squelch threshold set to “Low”, you switch the squelch off by keeping the DOWN
rocker button pressed for 3 seconds.

Configuring the transmitters for your
Tourguide application
Please also read the instruction manual for your transmitter. It provides important
information that ensures safe and optimum operation of the transmitter in your
Tourguide application.
Matching the transmitter to the receiver
To be able to establish a transmission link, the transmitter and receiver
used must operate in compatible frequency ranges (see page 4) and must
be set to the same frequency.
Make sure that the desired frequencies are approved and legal in your
country and, if necessary, apply for an operating license.
You can contact your Sennheiser partner who will be pleased to calculate
intermodulation-free frequencies for you or to help you apply for an operating license.
The receiver’s channels have been factory-preset to receiving frequencies that are
intermodulation-free (see frequency table on page 27). However, you can change
the factory-preset frequencies. Within one frequency range, up to 32 transmission
links can be operated simultaneously.
왘 Make sure to set the transmitter of the evolution wireless G3 or 2000 series to
the same frequency as the receiver.
If you still cannot establish a transmission link between transmitter and receiver,
read the chapter “If a problem occurs ...” on page 23.

Recommendations and tips
Recommendations and tips
General information
• Transmission range depends to a large extent on location and can vary from
about 10 m to about 150 m. There should be a “free line of sight” between
transmitter and receiver.
• For best sound quality, make sure that the transmitter sensitivity is correctly
adjusted (see the instruction manual for the transmitter).
… for SKM radio microphones and SKP plug-on transmitters
• Hold the radio microphone in the middle of the microphone body. Holding it
close to the sound inlet basket will influence the radio microphone’s pick-up
pattern, holding it at the lower part of the microphone body will reduce the
radiated transmission power and thus the transmission range.
• You can vary the bass reproduction by increasing/decreasing the talking
distance.
• For best sound quality, make sure that the transmitter sensitivity is correctly
adjusted (see the instruction manual for the transmitter).
• The plug-on transmitter uses the microphone body as an antenna – therefore
microphones with a metal casing should be used for best signal transmission.
… for SK bodypack transmitters
• Make sure that the antenna and the microphone cable do not cross.
• The antenna should hang or stand freely and be at least 1 cm away from the
body. The antenna must not be in direct contact with the skin.
• For best sound quality, make sure that the transmitter sensitivity is correctly
adjusted (see the instruction manual for the transmitter).
… for stationary SR monitoring transmitters
• Only use the monitoring transmitter in mono operation.
• For optimum RF operation, use suitable antennas from the Sennheiser accessory range. For more information on suitable accessories, visit the corresponding product pages at www.sennheiser.com.
