QUICK START GUIDE: SymNet EDGE I/O Card
ESD Warning
Getting Started
The following precautions must be taken:
carefully, apply an even downward pressure until you feel
the card seat into the 50-pin socket. You will likely need to
carefully move the board side to side to align the 50-pin
connector. Use one of the stainless steel screws provided
and mount the board to the standoff. Do not over tighten
this screw. The 50-pin connector on the Edge cards should
not be under any tension when properly installed.
• Do not open the protective conductive packaging until you have read the following, and are at an approved anti-
static work station.
Now, install and tighten the 2 remaining stainless steel
screws that mount the bracket to the card. This should
ALWAYS be the last step before replacing the lid.
• Use a conductive wrist strap attached to a good earth ground.
Finally, replace the lid.
This product can be damaged by electrostatic discharge
(ESD). When handling, care must be taken so that the
devices are not damaged. Damage due to inappropriate
handling is not covered by the warranty.
The IN, OUT, AEC and DIGI LEDs on the front of the Edge
frame will illuminate in combination to indicate the card
type installed. For example, an IN illuminates to indicate an
analog mic/line input card, whereas IN and DIGI illuminate to
indicate a digital input card. If the card is installed properly
the card type LED will illuminate.
• Always discharge yourself by touching a grounded bare metal surface or approved anti-static mat before picking up an ESD-sensitive electronic component.
• Use an approved anti-static mat to cover your work surface.
Remove Installed Card
Card Set-up and Configuration
Once you are properly grounded, follow this sequence of
steps to properly set-up and configure Edge I/O cards in
your Edge frame.
First, make sure the unit is powered down. Next, you must
remove the lid. To do this, 3 Phillips head screws need to be
removed from the top of the frame. Slide the lid back and
then up when removing. There is a lip that holds the front
down to the chassis.
If your Edge unit has blank filler panels in the card slots,
unscrew and remove them by removing the two black
screws located on the outside of the frame.

To remove an installed card, first remove the 2 stainless
steel screws that mount the card bracket to the card. These
screws are located on the inside.
Install New Card
Next remove the stainless steel Phillips head screw from the
top of the card. Gently pull the card up to disconnect the 50pin connector. The card is no longer attached to the frame.
Carefully remove the card from the chassis.

Remove the bracket for the I/O card by removing the two
black screws located on the outside of the frame. Unused
I/O card bays must have a blank filler panel installed when
operating an Edge unit.
To install a new card, mount the bracket for the new I/O card
to the frame chassis using the two black screws provided.
Next, align and feed the connectors on the I/O card through
the opening in the bracket and align the single screw hole
in the card with the standoff on the motherboard. Visually
look through this hole and align with the standoff and then,

Channel Digital Input Card and audio wiring.
The analog input card provides four channels of mic/line
input with +48 volts phantom power, 54 dB of gain and
24 dB of trim. The inputs are electronically balanced and
provided on plug-in barrier strip connectors. Control of each
input includes gain with metering, trim, mute and signal
inversion.
EDGE 4 Channel Digital Output Card
The digital output card provides four channels of digital
output in AES or S/PDIF format with clock inputs to sync the
outputs to a sample rate of your preference. The outputs are
provided on plug-in barrier strip connectors. Control of each
output includes gain with metering and mute.
Connections:
Using standard mic/line cables terminated on one end with
terminal block connectors and appropriate connectors for
your mic/line sources on the other end, connect the terminal
block ends into the Analog Mic/Line Inputs on the card and
the opposite ends into your source devices’ outputs. Refer
to the help module included in all Symetrix software for more

The analog output card provides four channels of line level
output. The outputs are electronically balanced and provided
on plug-in barrier strip connectors. Control of each output
includes gain with metering and mute.
Using 100-Ohm (balanced, AES) or 75-Ohm (unbalanced,
S/PDIF) cables terminated on one end with terminal block
connectors and appropriate connectors for your destination
devices on the other end, connect the terminal block ends
into the Digital Outputs on the card and the opposite ends
into your destination devices’ inputs. These outputs use
a sample rate of 48 kHz by default. If you need a different
sample rate, connect an appropriate Word Clock, AES-3/11
clock or S/PDIF clock source to the corresponding Clock
Input(s) on the card. Refer to the help module included in
