The frame controller C8702 plus a sync module C8840 together consume 660mA (3.3W).
Frames C8932 are equipped with power supplies C8903. They deliver 5V/14A.
Frames C8934 may equipped with either C8903s or C8905s. The latter delivers 5V/25A.
Frames C8942 are generally equipped with C8905s.
The 1RU frame C8912 has two built in redundant power supplies which provide 5V/8A.
The power supplies are operating in load balancing mode by sharing the output current. In case of a
PS failure, the other one will take over the full load.
The heat produced by the power supplies depends on input voltage, output current and
operating temperature. As an average for calculation one may assume a degree of efficiency of 75%.

general information / installation
UNPACK THE UNIT
The digital audio processing system C8000 was carefully packed in the factory and the
packaging was designed to protect the equipment from rough handling.
Please examine carefully the packaging and its contents for any signs of
physical damage, which may have occur in transit.
POWER SUPPLY
The digital audio processing system C8000 is a device under the safety category
“Schutzklasse1” in keeping with the VDE 0804 standards and may only used
with power supply installations built according to regulations.
Check the voltage details printed at the rear if it meets your local mains power supply.
CONNECTIONS
The digital audio processing system C8000 is equipped with standard connectors
(see also module description). Before connecting the digital audio processing system
C8000 switch the power off at all connected units.
RACK MOUNTING
The digital audio processing system C8000 is made as standard 19" unit (EIA format).
It occupies 3RU (132 mm height) rack space.
Please allow at least additional 3" depth for the connectors on the rear.
When installing the unit in a 19" rack the rear side of the unit needs some support,
especially for mounting in flight cases.
Cooling of C8000 system is done by passive air ventilation. It is necessary to have 1RU
space below and above the unit to guarantee constant and sufficient air flow.
OPERATION SAFETY
The digital audio processing system C8000 should not be installed near units which
produce strong magnetic fields or extreme heat. Do not install it directly above or below
power amplifiers.
If, during operation, the sound is interrupted or displays are no longer illuminated,
or if abnormal smell or smoke is detected immediately disconnect the power plug
and contact your dealer or Junger Audio.
SYNCHRONIZATION OF THE C8932 FRAME
The digital audio processing system C8000 is using one master clock for the whole
frame. All digital outputs are locked to this master clock.
The master clock is determined either by using the sync module C8840 one SDI or
one MADI interface module in master mode. With the C8840 sync module it is possible to
use the internal reference clock or an external sync source.
THE C8934 SPLIT FRAME
The C8934 offers 4 independent clocking islands. Each island must be clocked by an I/O
module that operates in Master Mode. This technique allows to process four independent
asynchronous TV channels in one frame.
THE C8942 COMPACT FRAME
The C8942 compact frame serves as a cage for the C8486/91/92 sandwich modules. It
provides 5V power and CAN-bus interconnection for remote control operation. It has two
integrated fans which may be monitored via SNMP protocol and/or GPO.

C8000
system configuration
Configuration of a C8000 frame
The C8k frame holds the cards physically. They are electrically connected to the back plane of the frame by a
64pin connector. The back plane distributes 5V power, several clocks, the CAN-bus, a few status and
address signals as well as the digital audio data from and to processors or I/O devices.
Audio bus line assignment:
32 audio bus lines S01 to S32 are used for the distribution of digital audio data. The majority of the modules
use the same 2ch format, i.e. 2 audio channels are multiplexed on to one output. Considering a 2ch
processing (DSP) module, one needs 1 of these 32 lines to connect an input device (e.g. AES IN) via Sx to
the processing module (DSP) and one line to connect the output of the DSP module to an output device (e.g.
SDI embedder) via Sy.
Sx
AES
Sy
DSP
SDI
There is no rule how to use the 32 lines with one exception:
! You must not connect more than one device output to a bus line at a time. If you connect more than
one device output to a bus line, you will destroy the audio signal.
But you can connect as many device inputs as needed to one device output
(e.g. for signal distribution or signal conversion purposes).
Each of the legacy modules has rows of jumpers to connect its output(s) to one of the 32 bus lines.
Some modules have more than one input / output so they need more than 2 bus lines to connect to other
devices.
At the module input side we have different solutions. Old devices also have rows of jumpers to connect to a
bus. Newer devices will select the relevant bus line by an electronic routing circuit.
You must tell it by one or more rotary encoder(s) from which bus line it should gather the audio data.
Newer devices like the C8402/03/04/05 (SDI Embedder / De-Embedder), the C8086+ (8 channel
LevelMagic), C8082 (5.1 fail over / switch over / ducking) as well as the 8305/06 (new MADI I/Os) and
8601/11/12 (Dolby Encoder / Decoder modules) and their successors C8621/31/32 have electronic output
routing also and the ability to multiplex 8 audio channels on one bus line. This increases the density of the
audio bus system dramatically. Such devices are backward compatible because they can also send and
receive 2 channels per bus line. See an example of such module carrier boards further below.
Please refer to the respective manual for details.

system configuration
Below is an example of a module carrier board for an old processing module:
Input bus number S1 (0) to S16 (F)
CAN address (ID) 0 - F
OUT
ADDRESS
On the left hand side you see the rotary encoders. They have 16 settings (0 to F) to select one of the
bus lines S1 to S16. If you need access to bus lines higher than 16, you must replace the adjacent range
jumper labeled: “+16”. Now the rotary encoder will select bus lines S17 (0) to S32 (F).
For two channel devices the rotary encoder labeled “IN-1” and jumper row labeled “OUT1” are used. For 4
channel devices the rotary encoders labeled “IN-1” and “IN-2” and jumper rows labeled “OUT1” and “OUT2”
are used, and so forth.
! On some modules the IN4 rotary encoder and the range jumper are used to setup special
application modes (see respective manual for details).

system configuration
Below is an example of a module board of a newer generation processing module - C8086:
Since this type of module has an electronic output routing facility, great care must be taken when installing or
exchanging a new module for an existing system!
DIP-switch #1 (no label) serves for the CAN address “+16” selection. If it is set to ON, the range for the
CAN address rotary encoder lasts from 0x10 to 0x1F.
If a frame controller is installed, the DIP-switch #2 must be set to REMOTE=ON. All settings after power up
are taken from an NV (non volatile) memory and the remote control via the Frame Controller is enabled.
Otherwise a basic configuration will be taken from the settings of the I/O and MODE rotary encoders if
implemented (see individual module manuals for details).
If the above DIP-switch #3 is set to BUS-EN=ON, the bus configuration will be taken from the
NV memory after power up. If an unknown bus configuration is stored, it can cause a conflict with other
modules inside the frame (short cuts between several outputs).
Important Note! If you are not sure about the output bus configuration you must turn BUS-EN=OFF before
inserting such module. Now all bus outputs are in Tri-State-Mode (i.e. off).
You can use the frame controller to configure the board. The configuration will automatically be stored into
the NV memory. For testing purposes you may temporarily enable the bus drivers via the GUI.
To enable the configuration for the next power up you must pull out the module and set BUS-EN=ON.
DIP-switch #4, TDM=ON enables the multiplexing of eight audio channels on one bus line on the first
available audio bus when not in REMOTE mode.

C8000
system configuration
Nearly the same applies to the C8402/03/04 SDI Embedder / De-Embedder with slightly different
DIP-switch labeling:
The MODE DIP-switch allows for setting of the operating modes:
If DIP-switch #1 is set to MASTER, the module provides the necessary clocks for audio signal distribution for
the C8k frame. In this case the Sync-Module must be removed!
You must use the frame controller to configure the board. Therefore the DIP-switch #2 must be set to
REMOTE=ON. All settings after power up are taken from an NV (non volatile) memory and the remote
control via the Frame Controller is enabled.
If the upper DIP-switch #3 is set to BUS-EN=ON, the bus configuration will be taken from the
NV memory after power up. If an unknown bus configuration is stored, it can cause a conflict with other
modules inside the frame (short cuts between several outputs).
TDM=ON enables the multiplexing of eight audio channels on one bus line.
The CAN/BUS DIP-switch determines the CAN-bus address of the module in hexadecimal values
from 0 – F. The coding is binary (D0=LSB, D3=MSB).
Older versions had a few more DIP-switches for hardware based settings of the Embedder and
the De-Embedder.

And finally here you see the actual design of a c8k module here from the compact C8492 module,
the 16 channel SDI I/O processor with optional bus access:
SW1
ADDRESS
INIT
1: BUS-EN
2: H-CAN
3:
4: ID+16
5: MASTER
6:
As a new feature you see the CAN-H switch above. That allows the module to operate with 1Mbit/s
CAN-bus speed. This speed enhancement is helpful if you must log multiple programs from multiple C8492s
in a compact 64 or compact 256 frame.
Since only a selected number of modules will support the higher CAN-bus speed, grate care must be taken
when setting up such a frame. All modules on the same CAN-bus must run on the same CAN-bus speed!

CAN address assignment:
In the above images you can see a very important switch labeled “ADDRESS” or “CAN” or “CAN/BUS”
respectively. It determines the module address for the CAN-bus. All devices that can be remote controlled
are connected to the CAN-bus of the frame. The CAN-bus is a two wire bi-directional bus. Each party must
have a unique address to allow for proper communication. Therefore it is of major importance that you
set a unique address for each module inside a frame. This scheme allows for 32 different module
addresses per frame: 0x0 – 0x1F (in hexadecimal notation).
Each module has a switch to set its addresses from 0x0 to 0xF (rotary encoder or BCD encoded dip-switch).
A defined DIP-switch is used to set the CAN address “+16” offset. See manual for details. Special modules
like the early GPI/O module C8817 have an automatic “+16” offset.
Other modules like the C8702 frame controller have a fixed CAN address (0x02).
Because the C8k System does not have slot encoding, you may place a module where ever you like. The
virtual location of modules in the OVERVIEW window of the GUI is derived from its CAN address. The
window is divided into 6 rows with 8 columns. First row contains the Frame Controller and Sync-Module(s).
rd
th
Second row is empty. 3 to 6 rows show all kind of manageable modules. Address “0” puts the modules
graphical box to the upper left place (row #3 left hand side), while address “1F” puts it to the bottom right
place (row #6 right hand side).
Synchronizing a frame:
The C8k frame is a digital audio processing system. Therefore it is of major importance that you synchronize
its digital inputs and outputs with other equipment in a signal distribution chain.
For standard applications the frame is equipped with a Sync-Module C8840 (see manual for details).
This module generates all relevant processing clocks and puts those clock signals on the back plane so all
devices can be synchronized properly. Because the sync signal distribution is driven by active components on
the back plane, there are only 4 slots (marked with red slide bars) at the rear of a frame at left hand side
which must be used to insert a module that synchronizes the whole frame. The sync module can run on
internal clock for stand alone applications or may be synchronized externally either by AES sync, Word Clock
or Video Black Burst. On a BNC output it provides the internal Word Clock of the frame to synchronize
other external devices.
Fail save operation with two sync modules:
For automatic fail over operation the frame may be equipped with two Sync-Modules (see manual for details).
One acts as the master while the other one is the slave. If the master loses its reference, the slave
automatically takes over the clock generation for the frame.
To ease this area of fail save operation, we have designed the C8840 Sync module that provides two
independent sync inputs and an automatic fail over inside.
Synchronizing a frame to an input signal:
If there is a demand by the application, the frame can also be synchronized via SDI or MADI. This must be
performed with great care because the synchronization relies on one signal feed. If this SDI or MADI signal
fails for any reason the whole frame is no longer synchronized. In this case the frame will run “free” on
approx. 48 kHz sample rate. Processing channels of other services will be influenced (clicks and pops).
If synchronizing the frame via SDI or MADI, such interface must be inserted instead of a
SYNC-Module into one of the four above mentioned red colored slots. Such module must be set to
MASTER mode in order to provide the clocks.
6/8
digital audio
modular
processing system
C8000

Working with asynchronous input signals:
In case it is not possible to synchronize the frame to the signal source, you must use Sample Rate
Converters at the input stage. Such Sample Rate Converters where available for AES/EBU input modules as
an option (piggyback PCB) or are designed in for the C8188/89. The SDI Embedder / De-Embedder modules
C8402/03 may have built-in SRCs as an option, which you can activate on demand.
Important Note! If an embedded SDI stream contains Dolby® (E, D, D+) encoded or other Non Audio
signals you must not use SRCs because they will destroy the structure of the data stream. In this case you
must feed the Dolby® encoded PCM tracks directly from the De-Embedder to the Embedder, while the other
audios are routed through SRCs.
For greater flexibility Junger Audio has developed the so called Split Frame C8934. Such a Split Frame has
four independent clocking islands (clusters) with 32 audio busses available per island, while the CAN-bus
runs throughout the frame. Each cluster must be clocked by an I/O (SDI or MADI) or Sync-Module.
For high density of number of channels per frame Junger Audio provides the SDI-DSP modules C8486
C8491 and C8492 "sandwich" modules. It is a combination of a HD/SD-SDI front end with a LevelMagic™
processor. These modules fits into a special frame C8942 which delivers power and CAN communication to
the modules so they can be remote controlled via GUI, the brc8x, GPI/Os or the Junger API while they look
like stand alone to the TV channel.
The number of audio channels and the HD-SDI interface are field upgrade options per module.
This type of module also perfectly fits into an asynchronous environment because it does not need external
synchronization.
Fail save operation with two power supply C8903:
Two power supplies C8903 (or C8905) can operate in parallel and share their load. If one of the two power
supplies fails, the other one takes over the full load automatically. The brightness of the front panel LED lets
you judge the load status. If you turn the power off, this LED is unfortunately still illuminated a little bit for quite
a while.
If the “Power Fail” signal is used for monitoring purposes, it is extremely important to set the output
voltage for both power supplies within a tight range. Otherwise it may happen that one of the two power
supplies takes over full load and the power fail signal is activated, indicating a critical status.
Important Note! Do not align the brightness of both module LEDs without measuring the output voltage.
Therefore, you must put them into a test frame one by one or you must turn power off for the one you are not
about to align. You can obtain extender boards from Junger Audio to get access to the +5V rail for
measuring.

Remote Control of the frame:
Each frame must have a Frame Controller C8702. It has a built-in web server to setup and operate a frame.
rd
This controller also provides connectivity for top level systems like SNMP managers or 3 party applications.
You can get access to each frame via a web browser (Firefox45.x and higher) by simply typing its IP address
into the URL field:
From here you can observe the module status, activate graphical meter applets, set up the parameters of
each module, store and recall presets, back up and restore the settings of individual modules or the whole
frame. It is also the tool to update the firmware of the installed modules and the firmware of the
Frame Controller itself. The firmware of the Frame Controller is called image (an image of the flash memory
of the Frame Controller). It also contains the latest module firmware that was available at the time of the
image build.
For details see the C8702 Frame Controller manual and the module manuals as well.
