HelixNet Partyline
Quick Start Guide
The following quick start guide provides basic installation instructions for your HelixNet Remote and Speaker
Station. It also provides a quick reference to possible topologies and cable capacitance.
1.1 Before installing
To ensure that HelixNet Partyline delivers the desired performance, review the cable specifications for the
venue or application space before installing.
Warning: HelixNet Partyline operates at a different voltage than two-wire partyline
systems (such as Clear-Com Encore or PL-Pro). Do not connect any analog two-wire
partyline equipment to the Main Station powerlines as severe damage may occur.

Remote/Speaker Station (B) to an Ethernet port
on an HMS-4X HLI-ET2 option module (C)
2. Connect a headset or microphone to the
Remote/Speaker Station.
3. Connect power supply to the DC power port on

1.3 Installing a Speaker Station in a wall box
1. Connect the Digital Intercom screw terminals (A)
on the Speaker Station to a powerline XLR-3
port on an HMS-4X (B).
Or
Connect an Ethernet port on the Speaker Station
to an Ethernet port on an HMS-4X HLI-ET2
option module. External switches including PoE
switches can be used.
2. Connect a headset or microphone to the
Speaker Station.
3. If required, remove the connector from the
optional power supply and connect the power
supply to the Power screw terminals on the
Speaker Station.

Clear-Com recommends Belden 9207 for fixed installation, and Belden 9463F for portable installations.
Tip: The attenuation of a cable increases with distance, and this can impact audio quality. If your priority is
audio quality, experiment with attaching one or two fewer devices to each line. For in-depth cabling advice,
contact your Clear-Com representative.
