INTRODUCTION
The Trantec S4.16 Series represents Trantec's commitment to providing high-
quality, affordable Wireless Audio Links using our considerable design
expertise gained over many years as a leading edge manufacturer.
We would like to thank you for purchasing this product and would like you to
spend a short time reading this Operations Manual so as to familiarise yourself
with the features of the Trantec S4.16 series.
SAFETY
Our aim is to supply you with a product that provides you with countless
hours of trouble free use.
In order to achieve these goals, we recommend the following:-
Keep the system away from direct sources of heat e.g. Central heating
radiators, heaters and direct sunlight.
Should the Transmitters not be used for extended periods of time we
recommend that the batteries are removed to avoid any potential leakage.
Keep the system clean by using a slightly damp cloth. Never use household
cleaning agents or solvents.
Avoid using or storing the system in damp conditions.
Always use the AC power adaptor supplied with the Receiver and never
remove the external covers of the equipment, so as to expose the
electronics.
54.16 SYSTEM OVERVIEW
The Trantec S4.16 is a high-quality UHF Wireless Microphone System.
The S4.16 has many features including:-
>> 16 User Selectable Channels.
>> Diversity Receiver Operation - to minimise drop-outs.
>> User Adjustable Audio Output Level - adjustable on both Jack and
XLR outputs.
>> User Adjustable RSSI/Squelch - enables the user to minimise external
interference.
>> Rear Mount Detachable Antennas.
>> Includes 4 Licence Free Channels.
>> 19” Rack Mount plate available.
THE S4.16 COMPRISES 2 BASIC DIFFERENT VARIATIONS :-
The Handheld System and the Beltpack Presenters/Instrument System.
The Handheld System comprises a fully integrated Handheld Microphone
incorporating a Cardioid Dynamic Capsule and is most suited to General
Vocal Applications.
The Beltpack System comprises a Beltpack Transmitter which is supplied
with a small Lapel style clip-on Microphone and is ideally suited for General
Presentation/ Theatre applications.
In addition the Beltpack Transmitter is supplied with an Instrument Cord. This
cord enables the beltpack to be used with electric instruments e.g. Guitars
and other high impedance applications.

RECEIVER OPERATION
1. Connect the appropriate AC adaptor into the DC inlet as marked on the
rear panel and observe the Supply indicator (green Led ) lights up.
2. To provide best diversity operation, attach the antennae and angle them
to form a "V” (as per illustration) ensuring they have a good line-of-sight
view of the corresponding transmitter. i.e. Avoid placing large metallic
objects in the transmission path.
3. Initially set the receiver AF gain control to its mid-position and connect
the AF output from either the 1/4 inch Jack or XLR to your Mixing console
or amplifier.
4. Select rear panel Channel Selector Switch (Small screw-driver adjust)
to correspond to Transmitter setting. It is possible to select any of the 16
channels. (Factory set to position 1).

1. Rotate the top collar locking ring in the AN
direction indicated in the illustration N
and gently pull the body downwards.
2. Insert a 9V MN1604 (IEC 6 LR61) PP3 type
alkaline battery, being sure to observe the
correct polarity as marked.
3. Gently slide the body upwards and lock.
Note: Should the Red battery status Led Indicator go out
during operation, this indicates a flattened battery and
that it should be changed.
CHANNEL SELECTION. (Small screw-driver adjust)
With the Transmitter in the OFF position select a channel to correspond with
the Receiver. It is possible to select any of the 16 channels.

1. Slide the battery compartment to the rear and hinge upwards to expose

2. Insert a 9V MN1604 (IEC 6 LR61) PP3 type alkaline battery, being sure to
observe the correct polarity as marked.
Note: Should the Red battery status Led Indicator go out during operation, this
indicates a flattened battery and that it should be changed.
MICROPHONE CONNECTION
1. Connect small lapel-type microphone into the corresponding 3.5mm Top
Panel Socket.
2. Ensure that the Battery Compartment MIC/INST switch is set to
Mic position.
3. Clip the microphone to your clothing (normally Tie or Jacket Lapel). Route
the mic cable so as to avoid undue strain or friction. Try and keep the mic
cable away from the ANTENNA
The microphone supplied with the S4.16 has an Omni-directional response,
which means it will pick up sounds from all directions. In view of this we
recommend that the microphone is placed as close as possible to the required
sound source.
INSTRUMENT CONNECTION
1. Connect the supplied Instrument cord into the corresponding 3.5mm Top
Panel Socket.
2. Ensure that the battery compartment MIC/INST switch is set to
INST position
BELTPACK GAIN CONTROL ADJUSTMENT. (Small screw-driver adjust)
If required adjust the Transmitter AF gain control so the signal only very
occasionally allows the Red AF O/L Peak Led on the receiver to light.
CHANNEL SELECTION (Small screw-driver adjust)
With the Transmitter in the OFF position, select a channel to correspond with
the Receiver. It is possible to select any of the 16 channels.
(Factory set to position 1).
Note: If the Transmitter Active Channel has
been changed whilst in the ON position, it must
be turned OFF and then ON again to complete
selection.

GENERAL SETUP AND OPERATING HINTS
1.
DISTANCE.
To maximise operating distance (approximately 100m). We recommend
you follow the guidelines below.
Ensure good line of sight between Transmitter and Receiver. Do not place
large obstructions between receiver and transmitters e.g. Concrete walls,
large metal obstructions. In addition keep the receiver away from metallic
beams and obstructions as these can adversely affect the Antenna Pick-up
Pattern and induce interference.
Always ensure that the Transmitter is at least 3m (10 feet) away
from the Receiver.
Conduct a “Walk test” which involves you moving the Transmitter in the
area where transmission 1s required whilst noting the received RF signal
strength on the receiver bargraph. Reception is best with all 4 Leds lit.
Never position the Transmitter Antenna directly against the body or hand.
This will reduce the operating range considerably.
SQUELCH/RSSI SET UP.
The S4.16 incorporates a Fixed Noise Squelch and a variable “Received
Signal strength” Mute Control on the rear panel of the Receiver. This
function is to reduce or eliminate the effect of interference from
outside sources.
Note: Trantec cannot guarantee multi-channel compatibility with other brands/make
of product.
To adjust follow these steps:
d.
b.
Turn off the Transmitter and note if any interference is present by
monitoring the Receiver RF Bargraph or Audio Output.
Turn the Squelch Control clockwise until the interference disappears.
In extreme cases it may not be possible to remove the unwanted
interference and in this case it is recommended you try an alternative
channel.
Note: the Squelch Control affects the operating range of the system and with the
Squelch set to maximum, the range will be significantly reduced.
3.
RECEIVER AF GAIN ADJUST.
The S4.16 receiver gain is continuously adjustable between Mic and
Line level.
Should the receiver signal be too high it will distort your mixer/amplifier.
If the signal is too low the result will be an increase in general
background noise.
Adjust this control to achieve the best signal quality.
4. BATTERY INFORMATION.
Please note that this product is designed to be used with a 9V Alkaline
battery. Should you use a rechargeable cell, be sure not to force it into the
battery compartment as some types can be considerably larger than
standard types and note that the operation time will be much reduced.
5. LOW-BATTERY STATUS INDICATOR ON TRANSMITTERS.
In normal circumstances, with the use of an Alkaline 9V battery, the
Transmitters should provide approximately 10hrs of continuous use.
Should the Battery indicator go out, it is advisable to change the battery
as soon as possible.
FAULT-FINDING.
In the event of a problem it is worth checking the following check list.
1. No RF Signal Indication on Receiver!
a. Are the Receiver and Transmitter on the same channel?
b. Is the battery fresh in the Transmitter and the battery indicator lit?
2. No Audio Signal!
a. 15 the AF Gain Control set correctly on the Receiver?
b. Is the Squelch Control set correctly (Normally mid-position).?
C. Is the MIC/INST switch in the correct position on the Beltpack?
