19. SETTINGS REQUIRED WHEN THE D-981 OR D-983 IS USED
19.1. Outline of the D-981 and D-983
Mounting the optional D-981 or D-983 Remote Control Module in the unit permits the unit's memory selection,
output volume control, and mute ON/OFF to be remotely controlled from external equipment. Also, status data
of the unit's memory selection and input contact can be transmitted to external equipment.
For mounting the D-981 and D-983, refer to the instruction manual included with the unit.
External remote control is performed by shorting terminals 1 – 8 (1 – 24 for the D-983) to the C terminal.
Taking the contact input setting as an example, when terminals 1 – 8 are assigned to preset memory Nos. 1 –
8 respectively by means of the memory selection function, if each terminal is shorted to the C terminal, preset
memory Nos. 1 – 8 can be recalled.
The contact input terminals 1 – 8 are preset to recall the "Preset Memory 1 – 8" when activated, the contact
output terminals 1 – 8 are preset to provide make contact when the "Preset Memory 1 – 8" is recalled, and
other input and output contacts are preset to "None" or "Break." By changing the settings on the contact input
and output setting screens, many different functions can be assigned to the contact input and output.
