Insert the molded IEC recepticale connector of the AC power cord into the IEC AC power
inlet on the back of the Q-SYS Core. See Figure 15. Insert the AC line connector into an AC
outlet. The Q-SYS core will accept 100-240 VAC, 50-60Hz.
— Figure 15 —
Q-SYS LAN A, LAN B, AUX Network Connections
Connect one end of a Ethernet cable (CAT-6 or better) terminated with a RJ45 plug into
the LAN A or optional LAN B receptical on the back of the Q-SYS Core. The AUX network
connection can be used for WAN streaming, remote control or monitoring. See Figure 16.
NOTE: The addition of AES67 streams are supported over the LAN A and B
networks.
Balanced / AES 3
Mic/Line Inputs, Line Outputs, AES3 I/O
All of these type of I/O cards accept Euro-style 3-pin connectors. See Figure 17. When
these cards are ordered in the product configuration, the mating plugs are included in the
product shipping carton. Plug the included Euro-style connectors into the appropriate input/

DataPorts
The Q-SYS DataPort I/O card is intended to interface with QSC amplifiers with v1
DataPorts, which is supported on the CX, DCA, PowerLight™, PL2, and PL3 series
amplifiers. All DataPort cables use HD15 connectors. See Figure 18.
IMPORTANT!: These may appear to be common VGA cables, but they are
— Figure 18 —
not. Many of the off-the-shelf VGA cables may appear to work with satisfactory
results. However, it is possible these same cables may not consistently work in a
satisfactory manner and could damage QSC amplifiers they are attached to. The QSC DataPort specification
requires that all 15 connections be present in the cable and that there is proper shielding for the audio
conductor pairs that run to the QSC amplifier. Therefore, QSC recommends the use of QSC DataPort cables
exclusively, which are available in a variety of lengths from QSC. Use of any non-QSC DataPort cable may
voild the Core 510 product warranty.
Connect the QSC DataPort cable from the HD15 connectors on the DataPort Card to the QSC amplifiers. Note that
multi-channel amps can spread accross multiple DataPort IO cards, as long as they are in the same Core or IO Frame.
Audio Network Cards and 16-Channel AES3 Input Card (CIAES16)
Audio Network I/O cards provide a bridge between Q-SYS audio networks and products
and systems incorporating 3rd party audio network technologies. All QSC audio network
cards include RJ45 receptacles that accommodate standard data communications cables,
terminated with RJ45 plugs. High capacity AES3 input (16 channel) cards also use RJ45
receptacles. See Figure 19.

2. Connect and put on the ESD grounded wrist strap.
3. Remove the sheet metal screws securing the lid to the Q-SYS Core chassis. Remove
the lid by lifting it approximately 1” at the rear of the chassis while sliding it towards the back.
4. Locate the I/O Card to be replaced and remove the ribbon cable (Figure 21) from the card by gently pushing outward
on the cable ejector tabs. The connector should be free of the socket.
5. Remove the two screws securing the I/O Card Mounting Bracket (Figure 22) on the rear of the chassis. Remove the
bracket.
6. Remove the I/O Cards: Refer to Figure 23.
a.For cards in positions G or H, remove the four Phillips head screws securing the card
to the standoffs. Remove the card. If you are not replacing a card in position A through
F, skip to step 7.
NOTE: Figure 23 shows both standoffs and screws for illustration purposes.
The screws are only used on cards in positions G and H. All other cards must
use the standoffs.
— Figure 22 —
b.For cards in positions A through F, remove the cards in positions G and/or H (step 6.a),
then remove the four hex standoffs securing the next lower card, and remove the card.
Continue this until you have removed the card you wish to replace.
WARNING!: Domestic and international safety regulations require that this device
(Q-SYS Cores) be fully configured before power is applied. All eight audio I/O card bays
designated A through H , must include a Q-SYS Audio I/O card and mounting bracket or a
rear plate assembly (RP-1). See (Figure 22). Failure to properly configure this device will
void the warranty.
— Figure 23 —
7. Install the new I/O Card by reversing steps 5 and 6. Be sure to align and secure the I/O
Card Mounting Bracket before tightening the hex standoffs or card-securing screws.
Complete step 7 and 8 for each single level, or layer, of cards as you replace them. Do
not move to the next level of cards until the lower level is properly installed.
— Figure 24 —
8. Reconnect the ribbon cable to the I/O Card, by aligning the tab on the cable connector
housing with the key on the card connector as shown in Figure 24. Gently push down
on the cable connector housing to seat the cable into the card connector. When properly seated, the cable ejectors
will lock in place with the thumb tabs upright.
