Note: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with
the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC
Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment
generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not
installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If
this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on,
the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more
of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturer could void the
user’s authority to operate the equipment under FCC rules.

G
The lightning flash with arrowhead
symbol within an equilateral triangle is
intended to alert the user of the presence
of uninsulated “dangerous voltage” within
the product’s enclosure that may be of
sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of
electric shock to persons. The exclamation
point within an equilateral triangle is
intended to alert the user of the presence
of important operating and maintenance
(servicing) instructions in the literature
accompanying the product (i.e. this Quick
Start Guide).
G
CAUTION: To prevent electric shock, do
not use the polarized plug supplied with the
device with any extension cord, receptacle,
or other outlet unless the prongs can be
fully inserted.
G
Power Source: This Symetrix hardware
uses a universal input supply that
automatically adjusts to the applied
voltage. Ensure that your AC mains voltage
is somewhere between 100-240 VAC,
50-60 Hz. Use only the power cord and
connector specified for the product and
your operating locale. A protective ground
connection, by way of the grounding
conductor in the power cord, is essential
for safe operation. The appliance inlet and
coupler shall remain readily operable once
the apparatus has been installed.
G
User Serviceable Parts: There are no
user serviceable parts inside this Symetrix
product. In case of failure, customers
inside the U.S. should refer all servicing to
the Symetrix factory. Customers outside
the U.S. should refer all servicing to an
authorized Symetrix distributor. Distributor
contact information is available online at:
http://www.symetrix.co.
Clean only with dry cloth.
Do not block any ventilation openings.
Install only in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions.
*
Do not install near any heat sources such
as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or
other apparatus (including amplifiers) that
produce heat.
(
This apparatus shall be connected to
a mains socket outlet with a protective
earthing connection. Do not defeat
the safety purpose of the polarized or
grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has
two blades with one wider than the other.
A grounding type plug has two blades and
a third grounding prong. The wide blade
or the third prong are provided for your
safety. If the provided plug does not fit
into your outlet, consult an electrician for
replacement of the obsolete outlet.
Getting Help
CAUTION
Read these instructions.
BL
Protect the power cord from being walked
on or pinched particularly at plugs,
convenience receptacles, and the point
where they exit from the apparatus.
BM
Only use attachments/accessories
specified by the manufacturer.
BN
Use only with the cart, stand, tripod,
bracket, or table specified by
the manufacturer, or sold with
the apparatus. When a cart
is used, use caution when
moving the cart/apparatus
combination to avoid injury from tip-over.
BO
Unplug this apparatus during lightning
storms or when unused for long periods of
time.
BP
Refer all servicing to qualified service
personnel. Servicing is required when the
apparatus has been damaged in any way,
such as power-supply cord or plug cord
is damaged, liquid has been spilled or
objects have fallen into the apparatus, the
apparatus has been exposed to rain or
moisture, does not operate normally, or has
been dropped.

Device Addressing / Basic Hookup
ARC Pinout
ARC Distance Table
The RJ45 jack distributes power and RS-485 data to one
or more ARC devices. Uses standard straight-through UTP
CAT5/6 cabling.
The following table provides at-a-glance cable length limitations
based on DC power (the table is not relevant if only RS-485 is
distributed) and assumes 24 gauge CAT5/6 cabling. The lengths
for multiple ARCs on a single chain assume equal distance for
each cable segment between ARCs. This table is intended for
quick reference only. For more detailed configuration scenarios,
Symetrix has made available a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet to
help system designers determine power requirements based upon
cable length, number of ARCs, and the power supply to be used.
Minimum distance is based upon the ARC-2e, maximum distance
is based upon the ARC-SW4e and/or ARC-K1e. This spreadsheet
can be downloaded from the Symetrix Technical Support pages at:
www.symetrix.co/knowledge-base

information.
The Symetrix ARC-PSe provides serial control and power
distribution over standard CAT5/6 cable for systems with more
than 4 ARCs, or, when any number of ARCs are located long
distances from a Integrator Series, Jupiter or SymNet DSP unit.

Special note: For multiple ARCs on single chain, the listed value
is assumed to be the cable length between each device. For
example, a value of 600’ means 600’ between the DSP unit and
the first ARC, 600’ between the first and second ARCs, etc. The
total cable length will be the listed segment length multiplied by the
number of ARCs on the chain.
