UC WIRELESS SYSTEM COMPONENTS

FIGURE 1

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

The Shure UC Wireless System is a frequency–agile, diversity wireless system operating in the UHF band. Both the receiver and the transmitter are microprocessor controlled by Phase Locked Loop (PLL) circuitry for a clear, steady signal. The receiver is half–rack sized and can be mounted in a standard 19 inch (482 mm) audio equipment rack.

Each Shure UC Wireless System includes the following components:

UC1 Body-Pack Transmitter with your choice of lavalier microphone, headworn microphone, instrument microphone or cable,

or

UC2 Hand-Held Microphone-Transmitter with your choice of interchangeable microphone heads, including:

SM58

cardioid dynamic microphone

BETA 58A

supercardioid premium dynamic microphone

SM87 supercardioid condenser microphone

BETA 87A supercardioid or BETA 87C cardioid premium condenser microphone

and a

UC4 Diversity Receiver with power supply, antennas, and rack-mounting hardware.

Accessories include a Remote Audio Mute Switch for body pack transmitters, an Antenna Distribution System, a Passive

Antenna Splitter/Combiner, and Front/Remote Antenna Mounting Hardware. All accessories are available separately.

SYSTEM FEATURES

UHF Band Operation. The Shure UC System operates within the UHF frequency band, which is less congested than the VHF band. Typically, UHF systems encounter less interference than VHF systems.

Frequency Agility. The UC transmitter and receiver frequencies can be changed to avoid RF interference. This ensures interference–free operation, even in the most congested RF environments.

1/2 Rack Receiver Design. The UC4 receiver interfaces with the HR (half–rack) format to save rack space.

The UC4 receiver is supplied with hardware for single and dual rack mounting.

MARCAD Diversity. Exclusive Shure MARCAD (MAximum Ratio Combining Audio Diversity) circuitry monitors signals from both receiver sections and combines them into a single output signal. MARCAD provides superior reception and exceptional freedom from dropouts.

Built–in Equalizer (On Receiver). Lets you tailor frequency response to match other devices in the system.

Tone Key Squelch Circuitry. Prevents unwanted noise from entering the system, including the “pop” noise that occurs when the transmitter is turned on or off.

Noise Squelch Circuitry. Analyzes signal quality rather than signal strength, virtually eliminating the possibility of annoying noise bursts.

Dual RF Meters (On Receiver). Indicate received signal strength at each antenna, making it easier to identify

“dead spots” in the performing area.

Audio Meter (On Receiver). Lets you monitor received audio level and helps you optimize the transmitter gain setting.

Logic In/Out Terminal (On Receiver). Provides logic interface with external devices.

Preconfigured Group/Channel and Frequency Setup. Ensures frequency compatibility and simplifies installation of multiple UC systems. A “Group” is a preconfigured set of frequencies or channels that do not interfere with one another.

Optional Remote Mute feature on body–pack. Lets you externally mute body pack transmitter during performance.

FIGURE 10

CHANGING THE TRANSMITTER SETTINGS

Adjusting the Transmitter Gain Level

The transmitter audio gain level has been factory preset to provide satisfactory output in most applications. However, for loud singers or high–output musical instruments, the preset level may be too high, as indicated by constant glow of the red audio LED on the receiver. Soft spoken talkers or singers may find that the factory setting is too low, as indicated by the failure of the amber audio level LED on the receiver to glow at all.

To adjust audio gain, open the battery compartment and locate the transmitter audio gain control. Use the supplied screwdriver to make adjustments. See Figure 11.

For high sound pressure level applications, such as loud singing or playing, decrease audio gain level by rotating the gain control counterclockwise (while the microphone is in use) until the red audio level LEDs on the receiver flickers during the loudest sounds.

For low sound pressure level applications, such as soft singing or playing, increase audio gain level by rotating the gain control clockwise until the red audio level LEDs on the receiver flickers during the loudest sounds.

NOTE: For guitar applications, the minimum setting (full counterclockwise) is recommended. If you are using the Shure

WH10TQG headset, rotate the gain control to the fully clockwise position. Then, if necessary, rotate it back slightly.

CHANGING RECEIVER SETTINGS

The receiver display identifies the operating frequency by Group and Channel. The character on the left represents the Group setting and the character on the right represents the Channel setting. Groups are preconfigured sets of frequencies or channels that work well together. A complete list of compatible Groups and Channels is included in the separate UC Wireless Frequency Compatibility Guide.

Changing the Receiver Group Setting

To advance the receiver Group setting, rotate the Group switch clockwise, using the supplied screwdriver. Rotate the switch counterclockwise to decrease the setting. The display will indicate the change. See Figure 14.

NOTE: A dash mark (––) indicates an unavailable Group.

Adjusting the Receiver Squelch Setting

The receiver squelch control is factory preset at the 12 o’clock position for optimum performance. Normally, no further adjustment is required. However, it is possible to adjust the squelch control to improve either signal quality or increase system range.

To raise the squelch threshold, rotate the control clockwise. This causes the receiver to demand a higher quality signal (less noise before muting), but it reduces operating range. See Figure 16.

To lower the squelch threshold, rotate the control counterclockwise. This allows a lower quality signal through (more noise before muting), but it extends the operating range. See Figure 16.

Adjusting the Equalizer Setting

The UC4 receiver incorporates a two band equalizer to help adjust the sound of the wireless system to match that of other wired and wireless products in an installation. See Figure 17.

ADJUSTING THE UC4 RECEIVER EQUALIZER SETTING

FIGURE 17

Adjusting the Low–Cut Filter (High Pass)

The low–cut (or high–pass) filter allows all frequencies above its cutoff point to pass from filter input to filter output without attenuation, while frequencies below its cutoff point are attenuated. See Figure 18. The cutoff point is defined as the frequency at which the signal has dropped 3 dB relative to the flat bandpass region. Below the cutoff point, the filter exhibits increasingly more attenuation as the frequency level drops. The rate at which this attenuation occurs is expressed in decibels per octave (dB/oct). The UC4 Receiver has a one–pole, low–cut filter of 6 dB per octave.

Low–cut filters are used to attenuate the audio signal when low frequency noise or excessive proximity effect is present. For example, the low–frequency vibration caused by wind, footsteps, and vehicular traffic can be transmitted through microphone stands to the microphone, and from there to the sound system. These low frequencies, typically ranging from 5 to 80 Hz, are generally not desirable.

TIPS FOR ACHIEVING OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE

Maintain a line of sight between the transmitter and receiver antennas.

Avoid placing transmitter and receiver where metal or other dense materials may be present.

Avoid placing the receiver near computers or other RF generating equipment.

Avoid placing the receiver in the bottom of an equipment rack unless the antennas are remotely located.

Use the proper receiver antennas.

Point the receiver antenna tips away from each other at a 45

°

angle from vertical, and keep them away from large metal objects.

Do not obstruct the receiver antennas.

Use the proper cable when remotely locating receiver antennas. For best performance, use Shure UA825 or

UA850 low loss coaxial antenna cable, or 50

low loss cable such as RG8.

Use Shure UA820 1/2 Wave Antenna and UA830 Active Remote Antenna Kits, along with Shure UA845 Antenna Distribution System for remote antenna placement.

Mount diversity antennas at least 1/4 wave apart. This can be achieved by remote placement of one or both 1/2 wave antennas using Shure UA825 or UA850 low loss coaxial cable and a Shure UA830 Active Remote Antenna Kit in conjunction with a Shure Antenna Distribution System. For multiple system installations, use the Shure

UA845 Antenna/Power Distribution System.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Some common problems and their solutions are identified in the table below. If you are unable to solve a problem, contact your dealer or the Shure Service Department at 1-800-516-2525 (7:30 am to 4:00 pm, Central Standard Time). In

Europe, call 49-7131-72140; other international users call Shure in the U.S.A. at 847-6 00 -2 0 00.

Problem

No sound; receiver RF LED(s) and

AUDIO LEDs not glowing.

Solution

Make sure transmitter and receiver are turned on.

Check transmitter Power/Battery Fuel Gauge. Replace battery if necessary.

Make sure transmitter and receiver frequency Group/Channel settings are identical.

Check receiver squelch setting.

Check receiver antenna connection(s).

Make sure at least one antenna is in the line of sight of the transmitter. If necessary, reduce the distance between transmitter and receiver.

No receiver sound; RF and AUDIO level meter LEDs glowing.

Turn up the receiver audio output Level control.

Check for proper connection between receiver and microphone mixer.

Talk into the microphone and observe the receiver audio level LEDs. If they glow, the problem is elsewhere in the sound system.

Received signal is noisy or contains extraneous sounds with transmitter on.

Noise from receiver with transmitter off.

Check transmitter Power/Battery Fuel Gauge and replace battery if power is low.

Remove local sources of RF interference, such as lighting equipment.

If using a guitar or other instrument, make sure it is connected to the UC1 with a Shure

WA302 adapter cable.

Two transmitters may be operating on the same frequency. Locate and turn one off or change frequency.

Signal may be too weak. Reposition antennas closer to the transmitter.

Adjust receiver squelch control.

Adjust receiver squelch control.

Remove local sources of RF interference, such as lighting equipment.

Try using another frequency.

Reposition the receiver or antennas.

Turn the receiver off when not in use.

Momentary loss of sound as transmitter is moved around performing area.

Reposition receiver and perform another “walkthrough” test and observe the RF level or

Diversity signal indicators. If audio dropouts persist, mark these “dead spots” in the performing area and avoid them during the performance.

Decrease squelch control setting, even though noise in “dead spots” may increase slightly.

Move antennas to a remote location.
