ISA 428/828 Digital Option Installation

ISA 428/828 Digital Option Installation
ISA 428/828 Digital Option Installation
ISA 428/828 Digital Output Kit
The kit should contain: Qty Description
1 ISA 428/828 Analogue to Digital converter card
4 Crosshead screws
4 M3 Shakeproof washers
1 Heatsink (ISA 428)
Fitting the Card into the ISA 828
Place card into unit with the cable pointing toward socket J47. Rest the
ADC on the brackets so that the 3 relevant ADC holes line up with the 3
bracket holes. There are 4 holes on the card but 1 is not used. Screw card
into place using 3 crosshead screws and shakeproof washers and the two
screws retained from the rear option cover.
Tools required: No. 1 crosshead screwdriver, Pozihead preferred.
WARNING!
THE MODULE SHOULD BE DISCONNECTED FROM THE
AC POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO CARRY OUT THE
FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS.
ALLOW THE MODULE TO COOL BEFORE STARTING
INSTALLATION OF THE DIGITAL OPTION.
ANTI-STATIC PRECAUTIONS SHOULD BE TAKEN WHEN
HANDLING THE CARD OUTSIDE OF ITS ANTI-STATIC BAG;
ONLY HANDLE THE CARD BY GRIPPING THE CARD BY ITS
EDGES AND AVOID TOUCHING ANY OF THE COMPONENT
PARTS OTHER THAN THE CABLE AND CONNECTORS. PLACE
THE UNIT ON A CLEAN, FLAT SURFACE.
Removing the Top Cover
Remove the 11 crosshead screws fixing the top cover to the top and
sides of the ISA 428/828 unit. N.B. The cover is attached to the main unit
via a chassis earth cable. This must not be disconnected.
Removing the Digital Option Cover on
the Rear Panel
The rear panel digital connector area is accessed by removing the
rear cover plate next to the “DIGITAL OUTPUT” labelling. The plate
is removed by removing the two crosshead screws shown below.
Retain these screws for securing the digital card in place later.
Once the card has been secured in place, the digital card ribbon cable can
be connected to the adjacent socket, labelled J47. With the latches open,
the connector should be pressed firmly down in place until the latches
close to ensure good contact.
N.B. The cable has an orientation tab that should align with the orientation
notch in the socket. If this is not correctly aligned the cable will not fit
correctly – do not force it!
Installing the Digital Option into the ISA 428
The digital card is mounted in place using the 4 supplied crosshead
screws and the two support brackets that are already installed in the unit.
Installing the Digital Option into the ISA 828
The digital card is mounted in place using 3 of the 4 supplied
crosshead screws and the two support brackets that are already
installed in the unit.
Fitting the Card into the ISA 428
Place card into unit with the cable pointing toward socket J42. Rest the
ADC on the brackets so that the 4 ADC holes line up with the 4 bracket
holes. Screw card into place using 4 crosshead screws and shakeproof
washers and the two screws retained from the rear option cover.
Replacing the Top Cover on the ISA 428/828
The top cover should now be replaced using the 11 crosshead screws
to secure firmly to the chassis. ON THE ISA 828, DO NOT SLIDE THE
LID INTO PLACE BUT LOWER GENTLY TO ENSURE THE EARTH CABLE
SCREW (ATTACHED TO THE LID) DOES NOT DAMAGE THE ADC.
The installation is now complete and the unit can be reconnected to
the AC power.
Initialising the ISA 428/828 Unit with ADC Fitted
Once the card has been secured in place, the digital card ribbon cable can
be connected to the adjacent socket, labelled J42. The connector should be
pressed firmly down in place to ensure good contact.
N.B. The cable has an orientation tab that should align with the orientation
notch in the socket. If this is not correctly aligned the cable will not fit
correctly – do not force it!
Fitting the Heatsink onto the ISA 428
Remove the two screws shown below and use them to attach the heatsink
to the rear panel.
The ISA 428/828 recognises the installation of the digital card by switching
on the power to the unit while holding down any of the front panel switches.
Once the front panel is illuminated, release the front panel switch. The
digital card will now be active.
This is a one-time action – once initialised, the unit will recognise
the presence of the ADC each time the unit is powered up.
Please refer to the relevant User Guide for digital card operation.
Notes
• When syncing to an external clock the sampling frequency should be
set to match between the two pieces of equipment.

ADC Jumpers Guide
ADC Jumper positions diagram
J3-6: enable or disable AES Outputs 5-8, respectively, to allow
compatibility with Digidesign 96/192 interfaces. (This is detailed more
thoroughly in Appendix 2 of the main User Guide.) Set the jumper links in
the lower position to enable the outputs and the upper position to disable
them, e.g. setting J4 in the upper position disables AES Output 6.
J7 and 8
J3-6
J1 and J2
There are 8 Jumpers on the ADC that change the settings of the various
digital output streams. Here is a guide to each one:
Jumpers 3-6 links in upper (default) position (AES outputs 5-8 disabled)
J1 and J2: change the data format of optical outputs 1 and 2, respectively.
J7 and 8: change the audio word length. Note that the single jumper link
straddles J7 and J8 (creating 3 possible positions):
Jumpers 7/8 link in middle (default) position
Jumper 1 link in left position
Jumper 2 link in right position
Jumper link in left (16b) position: audio word length is forced to 16-bits
Jumper link in middle position: audio word length is forced to 24-bits
Jumper link in right (20b) position: audio word length is forced to 20-bits
