WIR TX75 C/D PRO Infrared Transmitter
System Overview
The WIR TX75 C/D PRO is a two-channel PRO infrared transmitter combining infrared modulator and emitter technology into a
single mountable enclosure—which reduces operating costs, eliminates the need for rack space and eases set-up.
The WIR TX75 C PRO Infrared Transmitter includes phoenix connectors for the line inputs and provides two channels: 2.3 MHz
and 2.8 MHz.
The WIR TX75 D PRO Infrared Transmitter includes phoenix connectors for the line inputs and provides two channels: 3.3 MHz
and 3.8 MHz.
The WIR TX75 C/D PRO is ideal for high-quality audio programs such as music, theater and audio description. The WIR TX75
C/D PRO will accept any line level, balanced or unbalanced audio inputs. Infrared receivers detect the transmission and convert
the light signals back into audio signals. The WIR TX75 C/D PRO operating frequencies (2.3,2.8 / 3.3,3.8 MHz) minimize highefficiency lighting interference.
Up to two slave emitters can be added for additional coverage. Power, baseband, and digital data are fed to the slave emitters via
a single CAT-5e cable for each emitter. No additional cables are required.
No FCC license or radio approval is required with this equipment. It can be used anywhere in the world.
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 when the
equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to
radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area may cause interference in which case the user
will be required to correct the interference at his own expense.
NOTE:A PLASMA MONITOR OR TELEVISION CAN DEGRADE THE AUDIO QUALITY OF THE WIR TX75 C/D PRO
TRANSMITTER. FOR BEST PERFORMANCE, THE TRANSMITTER SHOULD BE POSITIONED AS FAR AWAY AS
POSSIBLE FROM ANY PLASMA MONITOR OR TELEVISION.
Installation Procedures
Determine Coverage Area
When using the WIR TX75 C/D PRO transmitter in single-channel mode with the RX22-4 receiver, the system coverage area will
exceed 12,000 sq. ft. (1,115 sq. m.). WIR TX75 C/D PRO units automatically adjust to give the best coverage area possible in
both 1-channel and 2-channel modes.
Figure 1 illustrates typical coverage pattern for the WIR TX75 C/D PRO. This can be affected by direct/indirect sunlight, reflections
on walls and room construction. Reflections of the infrared light from walls, ceilings, and floors may change these patterns.
Important: Remember to point the transmitter towards the listening audience.
Remember: Most objects block infrared light. The transmitter cannot be concealed behind walls, glass, curtains, etc.
These patterns are the direct radiation pattern. The infrared radiation does not drop to zero outside the illustrated patterns; it
decreases. It still may be useable at a greater distance, depending on the receiver sensitivity and the reflective characteristics of
the room. Reflections of the infrared light from walls, ceilings, and floors may change these patterns.
The WIR TX75 C/D PRO can be operated with or without the faceplate, if desired. The faceplate can be removed and painted to
match room decor. Lightly sand faceplate with 400 grit sandpaper apply primer and two coats of final color. Do not paint the
infrared lens behind the faceplate of the WIR TX75 C/D PRO.

1. Plug the power supply output cord into “Power In” on the WIR TX75 C/D PRO.
2. Attach a line cord to the power supply.
3. Plug the power supply into the AC outlet. TFP 046: 100-240 VAC IN, 50 / 60 Hz.
This system is designed for class 2, low-voltage wiring. Always follow local electrical codes when using low-voltage wiring.
Power over Ethernet
The WIR TX75 C/D PRO has the ability to use a POE power supply to power itself and one slave. When using POE, one of the
slave connections is used for the POE connection, and the other can be used to run one slave. See the section “Connecting
Master and Slave Units”.
Green Power
The WIR TX75 C/D PRO is equipped with a sleep/power save feature. If no audio is present on either channel for three minutes,
the transmitter will automatically go into sleep/power save mode. This mode decreases power consumption by 80 percent. Units
will automatically start up when audio is activated. This sleep/power save feature can be disabled. Contact Williams Sound for
instructions.
On power up, the WIR TX75 C/D PRO performs a self-test to detect damage due to shipping, handling, tampering or incorrect
operation. If any failure is present, green indicator lights will blink. See WIR TX75 C/D PRO Indicators table on page 12 for
instructions on how to read indicator lights.

Connecting the Audio Source
Automatic Channel Detection/ Shutdown
The WIR TX75 C offers two carrier frequencies: Ch 1 (2.3 MHz) and Ch 2 (2.8 MHz).
The WIR TX75 D offers two carrier frequencies: Ch 1 (3.3 MHz) and Ch 2 (3.8 MHz).
Either unit automatically detects the presence of audio on the microphone and phoenix audio inputs, and transmits on either/both
channels
when an audio signal
is present on that channel. If audio is present on both the microphone and phoenix jack for a given
UNBALANCED
AUDIO
channel, the audio signals will be mixed.
When no
audio XLR
signal is present on a channel for three minutes, the WIR TX75 C/D will shut
down that channel. Operating the WIR TX75

Adjusting the Audio Level
Line Level Source
After an audio signal has been connected to the transmitter, adjust the audio source gain until the WIR TX75 C/D PRO audio-level
indicator for that channel blinks periodically.
Microphone Source
Speak into the microphone from a normal distance and at a natural voice level. Use the microphone gain adjustment on the WIR
TX75 C/D PRO to set the gain to the point where the audio level indicator on the selected channel blinks periodically. If the audio
level indicator is always on or on most of the time, the level is too high. If the audio level indicator is never on, the level is too low.
Connecting Master and Slave Units
Connect all WIR TX75 C/D PRO master and WIR TX75 S slave(s) units together using CAT-5e cables, the “to slave” jacks on the
master, and the “Master In” jack on the slave(s). For systems with no slave units, the CAT-5e cables and “to slave” jacks are not
used. For systems with one slave unit, either “out 1” or “out 2” may be used. When powering the master unit with POE, connect the
POE source to either jack, and connect the remaining jack to the slave unit.
The WIR TX75 C/D PRO automatically detect when slave units are plugged in, establishes a data link to verify operation, monitors
status, and enables baseband output to the slave emitter(s).
When a cable is plugged into a “to slave” jack, the master unit will automatically detect mis-wired, intermittent or bad CAT-5e
cables; a yellow status indicator light will blink on that channel’s “to slave” jack to indicate any problem. See WIR TX75 C/D PRO
Indicators table on page 12 for instructions on how to read indicator lights.
Once a master and slave unit are connected, the yellow and green indicators located on the “to slave” and “Master In” jacks mimic
each other. This allows the user to know the status of the entire system by simply looking at the indicators on the back of the
master unit. A switch is provided to turn off all indicator lights AFTER initial set-up, to allow for less conspicuous operation.
Note: The WIR TX75 C/D PRO will automatically detect and adjust for differences in CAT-5e cable length to the slaves.
Matching cable lengths to the slaves is not necessary. Cable length up to 100 feet may be used to connect the slaves or POE.

Troubleshooting
For easier troubleshooting, the WIR TX75 C/D PRO units are equipped with a series of self-tests and indications. Please see WIR
TX75 C/D PRO indicator lights table on page 12 to aid in troubleshooting.
The WIR TX75 C/D PRO “Power Indicator” is not lit:
• Make sure the power supply is plugged into the transmitter, or make sure the POE power supply is plugged in to a slave jack, and
any remote power switch is on.
• Set the “Indicators” switch on the back panel to “On”.
• Make sure the electrical outlet is on.
• Make sure the 48 VDC power supply, or the POE power supply, is working.
The WIR TX75 C/D PRO’s Ch1 or Ch2 “Audio-level Indicator” does not light:
• Make sure the WIR TX75 C/D PRO is plugged in.
• Set the “Indicators” switch on the back panel to “On”.
• Make sure the audio input is connected properly. Refer to figures 6,7,8, or 9 depending on the connection being used.
• Make sure an active and adequate level audio signal is being sent to the WIR TX75 C/D PRO transmitter.
No Sound through Receivers:
• Check to make sure the receiver is operating on the same frequency as the transmitter.
• If some of the receivers work but others don’t, check for bad batteries or earphones.
• If none of the receivers work, check to see if the power and audio input cables are connected to the transmitter. Verify that the
“Power Indicator” is on steady, and ch1 or ch2 “audio-level indicator” blinks periodically.
• Check to see if the transmitter is connected properly to the audio source. The audio-level indicators should flash on channels that
have audio.
• Make certain the transmitter is not covered by objects which would block infrared light.
Sound Through the Receivers is Weak and Noisy:
• Try adjusting the audio input level (see page 10). If the signal sounds okay, you may need to reposition the transmitter beam or add
additional WIR TX75 S slave emitters to the WIR TX75 C/D PRO system.
Buzzing or Humming Noise in Sound System:
• Check for ground loops or noise on the input signal.
• Check to make sure the “balanced / unbalanced” switch is in the correct position.
If these instructions do not address your problem or the issue persists, please call your authorized Williams Sound dealer or
representative.
