2.4D e s c r i p t i o n
The COFDM AV module HDCT 461 AV, in the following called digital module,
has a COFDM AV converter which simultaneously converts four COFDM modulated channels into AV signals using one DVB-T tuner.
The digital module has one DVB-T input. Via the AV interface, the decoded
video and audio signals are fed to the corresponding modulator module. From
there, they are fed to the HF output collector of the head-end station, through
which the level of the output signal can be adjusted via the software in the
head-end station.
The channel strips "A" "B", "C" and "D" can be individually programmed. This
means it is possible to select up to 4 channels out of one data stream.
To operate the digital module the software version of the control unit (head-end
station) must be "V 8" or higher. The operating software of the digital module
and the head-end station can be updated using a PC or notebook and the
software "BE-Flash" via the 9-pin D-SUB socket on the head-end station. You
can find the current operating software for the head-end station and the digital
module, the software "BE-Flash" and the current assembly instructions on the
website "www.gss.de".
The digital module is designed exclusively for use in the STC 160 head-end
station.
3I n s t a l l a t i o n
– Ensure the head-end station is mounted so it will not be able to vibrate.
Avoid, for example, mounting the head-end station onto a lift shaft or any
other wall or floor construction that vibrates in a similar way.
– Before installing or changing a module, switch off the head-end station or
unplug the power cable from the mains power socket.
Take measures to protect against ESD!
• Open the housing of the head-end station in accordance with the assembly
instructions for the STC 160.

– Always position modules which belong together next to each other. The
digital module must be installed to the left of the modulator module.
– Insert the digital module in a long numbered groove in front of a contact
strip on the board at the rear wall of the housing.
– The shorter not numbered grooves without a contact strip on the board at
the rear wall of the housing are for add-on modules only.
• Open the locking device

After installing the head-end station, upgrading accessories or installing modules it is necessary to tighten all cable connections, cable terminals and cover
screws in order to maintain compliance with current EMC regulations.
• Securely tighten the cable connections (F connectors) using an open-ended
spanner (spanner gap 11 mm).
• Mount the base plate and the front cover (see STC 160 assembly instructions).
