Quinta MU Microphone Unit
Set up
• Always position the microphone units on a secure surface. If the
microphone unit falls down, you can hurt yourself or others or
damage the microphone unit.
• To align the gooseneck microphone on the microphone unit and
to avoid twisting it too far and causing premature wear, please
note that the gooseneck must be bent no further than an angle
of 90° maximum.
Risk of injury
• If the microphone stations have a gooseneck microphone take
care that you do not injure yourself on this e.g. poke it into your
eye.
• The charging contacts of the microphone units can cause
damage to property, injuries or fire damage if they come into
contact with conductive material such as jewellery, keys or
chains. This closes the circuit and can thus cause the material
to heat up. To avoid this sort of unwanted circuit, the charging
contacts must be handled with caution. This applies particularly
if the microphone units are transported in a bag or some other
container together with metal objects.
Charging / rechargeable batteries
• When charging the microphone unit in the charger, take care to
ensure that you do not injure yourself when putting the station
in or taking it out.
• Only switch on the charger when you have inserted all microphone units. Empty charging compartments should never be
touched during the charging process. You could receive an
electric shock.
• Avoid letting the rechargeable batteries in the microphone unit
become too deeply discharged. The rechargeable batteries could
be damaged and the life of them could be reduced.
• If battery operated equipment is not used for a lengthy period
(e.g. 1 year) the self-discharge of the battery could be
accelerated. The temperature for long-term storage should be
between +10° C and +30° C.
• If the microphone units are not used for several months, the
rechargeable batteries in the microphone units should be
charged up at least twice a year in order to avoid them running
out and deterioration in the performance due to self discharge.
Volume
• If the participants of a meeting use a headphone with the Quinta
microphone stations, please make sure that the volume is not set
too high via the Quinta Conference software or the microphone
unit itself. Otherwise, the hearing of the participants could
permanently be damaged.
1.3
Quinta TH Handheld Transmitter
Use
• Protect the transmitter from moisture and sudden impacts. You,
or others, could either injure yourself or damage the transmitter.
• Switch off the transmitter before changing the battery.
5
•
Do not blow into the microphone. In a condenser microphone
this could damage the transducer. It is preferable to carry out a
speech trial.
NiMH rechargeable batteries, alkaline batteries
• The Quinta TH handheld transmitter can be operated with two
NiMH rechargeable batteries or alkaline batteries (AA LR6
Mignon).
• The commercial batteries can have a length tolerance of 2 - 3 mm.
When changing the battery always ensure a good contact.
• If the transmitter is not being used for weeks or months, please
remove the batteries. Batteries can leak when not being used
for a long time and corrode the conductor strips and components.
Repair is no longer possible. In this case all warranty claims are
null and void. The description “leak proof” on batteries is no
guarantee that they will not run out.
• Never take batteries apart yourself. The battery acid contained
will damage skin and clothing.
• If abused or misused, rechargeable batteries may leak. In
extreme cases, they may even present an explosion, heat, fire,
smoke or gas hazard.
• Never expose batteries to excessive heat such as sunshine, fire
or the like.
Charging/charging contacts
• Avoid letting the rechargeable batteries become too deeply
discharged. The rechargeable batteries could be damaged and
the life of them could be reduced.
• If battery operated equipment is not used for a lengthy period
(e.g. 1 year) the self-discharge of the battery could be
accelerated. The temperature for long-term storage should be
between +10° C and +30° C.
• If the handheld transmitter is not used for several months, the
rechargeable batteries in the transmitter should be charged up
at least twice a year in order to avoid them running out and
deterioration in the performance due to self discharge.
• From time to time the battery and charging contacts of the
Quinta TH handheld transmitter should be cleaned with a
lint-free soft cloth moistened with spirits or alcohol. Please
remove the batteries from the battery compartment before
cleaning.
• The charging contacts of the handheld transmitter can cause
damage to property, injuries or fire damage if they come into
contact with conductive material such as jewellery, keys or
chains. This closes the circuit and can thus cause the material
to heat up. To avoid this sort of unwanted circuit, the charging
contacts must be handled with caution. This applies particularly
if the handheld transmitter is transported in a bag or some other
container together with metal objects.

Where to Place the Control Unit
• If you do not use remote antennae, place the Quinta CU / RS
control unit in the room where the meeting takes place. If you use
remote antennae, place the antennae in the conference room.
• Avoid shadowing effect of the antennae, especially by metallic
surfaces.
• A free line of sight between the Quinta MU microphone units,
Quinta TB boundary microphone as well as Quinta TH handheld
transmitter and the antennae of the Quinta CU / RS control unit is
essential for the operation of the microphone units.
2.3
8
Big obstacles in between can possibly affect the radio
transmission. In such specific installations the use of remote
antennae can possibly achieve an improvement of the RF
situation.
• If you want to install several Quint CU control units in a 19" rack,
please make sure that there is a minimum distance of 1 U
between the control units to avoid interferences, especially if you
do not use remote antennae.
How to Connect the Antennae
2.3.1 Direct Connection
2.3.2 Remote Connection
• Connect the antennae to the antenna connections . Please note
that for diversity operation both antennae have to be connected!
A weighting circuit is used to make sure that the better antenna
signal is received.
• For stand-alone operation we recommend using the supplied
CA Q 11 angled rod antennae.
• The Quinta CU / RS control unit can also be operated with remote
antennae. We recommed extremely low attenuation connecting
cables which are 10 m [32.8 ft] or 20 m [65.6 ft] long. Please
note that the antennae have to be installed remotely.
Important:
• There must be an unobstructed path between the
microphone units and the antennae, i.e. between the
Quinta CU / RS control unit or the remote antennae and
the microphone units there must not be any obstacles.
With a free line of sight between the control unit and the
microphone units and the rod antennae the range is
between 30 to 50 m [98.4 ft to 164 ft].
For optimum range the surface of the table is important, wood or
plastic tables are ideal, but metal tables can cause interferences
and reduce the range.
• Please make sure that with a free line of sight the minimum
distance between the antennae and the microphone units is not
less than 1 m [3.2 ft].

Audio Connection
• If required, connect the Audio Mix , XLR or Cinch master output of the Quinta CU control unit to the input of a
mixing console or amplifier.
• Connect the Audio Mix , XLR or Cinch master output of
the Quinta RS control unit to the input of your video
conferencing system. For a correct connection to your video
conference system, please refer to the manufacturer’s manual of
the video conference system regarding the microphone
connection.
• If you want to feed the audio signals into a network, connect the
AVB connection*
to the network by using a CAT5 cable. You
can also connect other audio sources or devices with AVB
connection, which are defined as “Talker” (e.g. microphone) or
“Listener” (e.g. loudspeaker), as well as DSP devices for audio
data processing.
• You can connect e.g. external loudspeakers to the individual
channels of the audio output .
• Always route cables running to the unit where they will not be pinched or cut by heavy or sharp objects.
*AVB is a uniform standard for Audio/Video networks for data
communication with which the most different components can
communicate with each other.
AVB is based on IEEE 802 Ethernet for the real-time streaming of
audio and video contents via Ethernet.
AVB features a bandwidth reservation, a low jitter master clock, low
latencies and a timing mechanism for the synchronisation. AVB
supplies a sufficient raw data bandwidth to transmit up to 200 audio
channels via one single Gigabit Ethernet port. Field tests showed
that a part of this can be used for extended functions. In order to
achieve this, an AVB network separates the AVB data traffic from the
Standard Ethernet data traffic and manages streams accordingly.
This means that an AVB network can be connected to a Standard
Ethernet network to transfer data to and from the network. The
performance of the streaming of media can only be guaranteed
within a group of AVB capable devices.
2.5
Power Supply
• Verify that the voltage rating of the unit matches that of the AC
mains outlet you are to use. If you connect the unit to the wrong
voltage, you may seriously damage it.
• Always route cables running to the unit where they will not be
pinched or cut by heavy or sharp objects.
• Connect the Quinta CU / RS control unit to the mains . The
internal power supply unit of the control unit can automatically
adjust between 100 and 240 V at 50 - 60 Hz.
Quinta – Control Unit

Connection of Media Control System and PC
• If you want to configure, control and monitor the system via the
Quinta Conference software, connect the USB connection or
the LAN connection or RS 232 (null modem cable
required) with a media control system or PC. The default IP
address of the Quinta CU / RS control unit is: 192.168.1.55
• If the Quinta CU / RS control unit is connected e.g. via a
network with a WLAN Access Point, you can access the web server of the Quinta CU / RS control unit e.g. with a smartphone.
Important:
Never access the Quinta CU / RS control unit via the

is occupied.
• Microphone mode: As soon as there is an active radio
connection between the microphone and control unit (no matter
if the microphone is open or muted) the appropriate channel
display will illuminate red to indicate that the channel is
occupied. In the Microphone mode a maximum of four microphones can be operated with one control unit. If all four radio
channels are occupied and more microphones are activated,
these microphones that are too many will automatically be
deactivated right away.
• At the factory the RF bands 2.4; 5.2 or 5.8 GHz* will be
activated (Automatic Mode). This means that the Quinta CU
control unit will select a free frequency and if necessary it will
select a different free frequency without any interferences. This
operating mode is recommended for normal use. The free
frequencies for the Quinta CU control unit can be deactivated via
the Quinta Conference software. The microphone unit will automatically be adjusted to the frequency of the Quinta CU control
unit.
• If required you can select a fixed frequency (Manual Mode). Use
the tip of a pencil or a paper clip to press the countersunk pushbutton for RF band selection . The push-button switches
through all available frequencies one after another and back to
the “Automatic Mode”. The manual frequency selection can take
up to 1.5 seconds and is immediately displayed. The microphone
units are automatically adjusted to the selected frequeny band.
*Note:
The availability of the RF bands 2.4; 5.2 or 5.8 GHz depends on
the selected region.

2.9.2.8 Clear MU List
• In the Microphone mode up to four microphones can be allocated
to each control unit. Each microphone that is switched on is
allocated to a channel.
If the “Remember mic channels” function is activated (ticked
check box in the Quinta Software), this channel in the control unit
will remain reserved for that microphone until it will be manually
deleted from the device list. In this way up to four microphones
can be registered in the device list and remain until they are
manually deleted, even when the control unit and/or microphone
units are switched off and on again in between. Once allocated,
the audio channels remain the same as before, even after being
switched on again. The channels can be changed manually via the
device list.
• Attention: When four microphones are detected in the device list,
these channels remain permanently reserved and cannot be
picked up by other microphones. “Foreign” microphones are not
allowed, even when the registered microphones in the list are all
switched off and theoretically audio channels are available. If
“foreign” microphones connect to a control unit that already has
reserved all four places in the list, the new microphone will not be
allowed and will be switched off automatically.
• A new microphone will only be registered in the device list if a
switched-off microphone is manually deleted from the device list.
• In order to delete devices from the list there are the following
options:
– directly in the device list of the Quinta Software in the “Delete”
column
– on the Quinta RS control unit by pressing the “Clear Mic List”
button

Microphone Mode when Operating Several
Control Units
In the Microphone mode you can operate a maximum of four
microphones with one Quinta CU/RS control unit. If you want to
use more microphones simultaneously you need more Quinta
CU/RS control units. For reasons of typical local conditions when
using the wireless spectrum (WLAN), in the Microphone mode we
recommend not using more than four Quinta CU/RS control units
simultaneously so that you have a maximum of 16 microphone
units available.
Of course, you can operate several Quinta CU/RS control units in
parallel independently. The Microphone mode offers the possibility
to cascade several Quinta CU/RS control units with all
microphones and to manage them with the same software. This
also implements cross-device functions such as common mute of
all microphones.
2.9.3.1 Connection
• The first control unit can be connected via USB, RS 232 or
Ethernet.
• The second and further control units can only be connected via
Ethernet.
• In the following, we will introduce you to three typical
applications from a variety of connection options.
Application 1: Connect control units to the PC directly
• You use two Quinta CU/RS control units.
• Connect the first control unit via USB or RS 232 to your PC.
• Connect the second control unit to your PC via Ethernet. Be sure
to connect the Ethernet cable to the LAN port on the control
unit.
Application 2: Connect control units via a network
• You use more than two Quinta CU/RS control units.
• In this case, you need an Ethernet switch.
• Connect the Ethernet switch to your PC and, if necessary, to the
company network.
• Connect the first control unit via USB or RS 232 to your PC or
via Ethernet to the Ethernet switch.
• Connect the other control units to the Ethernet switch.
Application 3: Connect the control units to a network via USB /
Ethernet adapter
• Connect your PC to the network via Ethernet.
• Connect a USB/Ethernet adapter to your PC.
Settings such as IP address, subnet mask, gateway and driver
for the adapter are manufacturer-specific and should be
inquired at the local IT staff.
• Connect an Ethernet switch to the USB/Ethernet adapter.
• Connect the control units to the Ethernet switch.
• Make sure you have the correct network settings for IP, DHCP,
SNM for all Quinta CU/RS control units and the other network
devices.
• The separate Quinta Software manual explains how to integrate
multiple Quinta control units into the Quinta software.
Important:
We recommend to make all settings such as IP addresses, room
combining etc. via the Quinta software, especially when using the
Quinta RS and Quinta CU in one system.

Notes for Microphone Units and Rechargeable
Batteries
–
• To achieve a 100% battery capacity of the rechargeable batteries, all
microphone units should have 2 complete charging cycles (charging
and discharging) at least. Only after several charging and discharging
cycles, the rechargeable batteries will achieve their full capacity.
• The Quinta MU microphone units are provided with highperformance nickel-metal hydrid (NiMH) batteries. These
guarantee operating times of approx. 20 hours. It takes about 2.5
hours to charge them.
• The service life of the batteries largely depends on the manner in
which they are looked after and on how well the user recharges them.
To extend the service life of the batteries for as long as possible, the
following charging cycle is recommended:
– Warning: Do not keep the microphone units in the charging
case when it is switched on. Also use the CA 2459 single
charging power supply adapter not in continuous operation
(24/7). The battery may age prematurely or be damaged.
Therefore, always switch off the chargers or power supplies
when the system is not in use.
– Only put the microphone units in the charging case before a
conference / application and fully charge them until the “fully
charged” status is shown.
–
–
In particular, when the microphone units are inserted, the
charging case should not be constantly switched on and off.
For each charging cycle, there is an initial 5-minute charge to
check the battery status. If the case with the microphone units
is switched on every day (for example, because the mains is
switched off automatically or by a cleaner), the microphone
units will be slowly but constantly overcharged and this will
damage the batteries.
The NiMH batteries used minimise the so-called “memory
effect”, but their capacity is reduced when they are only
partially discharged on a regular basis. For this reason, the
microphone units should be fully discharged every three
months until they switch off automatically. They can then be
fully recharged. This procedure can, if necessary, be repeated
a second time.
If, despite this measure, the microphone unit does not operate
for a sufficiently long period of time, the battery has reached
the end of its service life and must be replaced. The typical
service life of the battery is greatly dependent on whether or
not the above points are observed. This is why batteries are
not covered by warranties. If the above points are observed, a
battery typically has a service life of at least two years or
500 complete charging cycles, depending on which occurs
first.

• Microphone mode: The different operating modes such as
“Global Mute”, “Push-To-Mute” or “Toggle Mute (On/Off)” are
selected with the Quinta Software for all microphone units.
Please refer also to the appropriate “Quinta Software” manual.
Powering / Operating Time
• The boundary microphones have an integrated rechargeable
battery allowing an operating time of approx. 16 hours.
• As soon as the battery charge is too low for a satisfactory
operation, the operating control LED on the rear of the
microphone will flash. The remaining time of operation is
around 60 minutes.
• The charging state of the microphones can be displayed with
the Quinta software on a PC connected to the Quinta CU/RS
control unit or via the integrated web server. Furthermore, it can

• The Quinta TB boundary microphone can be powered via the
external CA 2459 mains charger adapter, which is connected to
the DC socket on the rear of the microphone. While the
CA 2459 mains charger adapter is connected, the rechargeable
battery of the boundary microphone is charged.
Charging
• Before using the Quinta TB boundary microphone for the first
time, you have to recharge the integrated rechargeable batteries.
The maximum charging time is approx. 2 hours.
• For charging connect the CA 2459 mains charger adapter to the
microphone and to a power socket. If the microphone is
switched on when recharging, the operating control LED will
briefly illuminate red for one time and then permanently green
to indicate that the microphone is powered.
• When the microphone is switched off, the charging process is
displayed by the operating control LED as described in the
following:
a) LED is flashing red slowly. . . . . . . Battery is charged,
normal charging process
b) LED illuminates permanently red . Battery is completely full
c) LED is flashing red rapidly . . . . . . Error
(In this case disconnect
the mains charger

Quinta – Trouble Shooting

Simultaneous Operation of the Quinta Conference
System and other 2.4 GHz Devices
(e.g. WLAN, Bluetooth)
9.1.1 Physical Laws
Due to many physical laws it is not possible to guarantee a
simultaneous interference-free operation of different devices using
the same frequency band. Radio devices operating in the same
frequency band will always disturb each other (the function can be
disturbed as well).
For the use of UHF wireless microphones it is known that 2 devices
can never be operated on the same frequency. It is only possible to
operate a certain number of compatible radio devices within a
defined frequency band.
This applies also to the 2.4 GHz-ISM band (2400 MHz - 2484 MHz)
or 5 GHz. Due to digital transmission techniques and various
transmission standards it is possible, but not recommended, to
operate certain devices simultaneously within the same frequency
band.
9.1.2 Quinta and WLAN or WiFi
Like WLAN, the Quinta system uses the same bandwidth of approx.
22 MHz for each RF channel (Low, Mid, High). This results in three
compatible RF channels which are theoretically:
Compatible channel 1:
Compatible channel 2:
Compatible channel 3:
Compatible channel 4:
2400 MHz - 2428 MHz
(theoretical mid frequency 2414 MHz)
2428 MHz - 2456 MHz
(theoretical mid frequency 2442 MHz)
2456 MHz - 2484 MHz
(theoretical mid frequency 2470 MHz)
+5.2 GHz - +5.8 GHz
The Quinta system uses RF channels (Low, Mid, High) compatible
to each other. For WLAN the user has to configure compatible RF
channels.
You can easily recognise that the individual WLAN channels overlap
considerably due to their bandwidth. All neighbouring channels
(e.g. channel 1 & 2 or channel 7 & 8) cannot be used simultaneously, because they would disturb each other. Furthermore, channel
12 and 13 are not approved for the use in the USA. In general, these
channels are not used either. Within the remaining frequency bands
only the WLAN channels 1, 6 and 11 can be used simultaneously.
For this reason the WLAN channels 1, 6 and 11 were selected for the
RF channels Low, Mid and High used for the Quinta conference
system. Due to this frequency compatibility the Quinta system is
operated WLAN-friendly.
More tips for installation
• Keep a minimum distance of approx. 5 m between WLAN
devices (e.g. Router, Repeater) and the transmitting and
receiving antennae of the Quinta CU control unit.
• The distance between laptops with activated WLAN interface
does not influence the audio transmission of the microphone
units as long as there is no active data traffic.
• We recommend using different RF channels for WLAN or WiFi
and Quinta channels. The distance between the WLAN and
Quinta channels should be as large as possible.
• The channels of the Quinta conference system can be selected
with the supplied Quinta Conference Software.

9.1.3
Quinta and Bluetooth
• Bluetooth devices make use of the whole 2.4 GHz range with
changing carrier frequencies (frequency hopping).
• Interferences caused by Bluetooth devices (including microwave
ovens) in normal operation can be excluded due to different
measures inside the Quinta conference system and an advanced
transmission protocol.
• It cannot be excluded, however, that an exisisting Bluetooth
data traffic will be intefered by Quinta.
9.1.4
Example for Quinta, Media Control System and
WLAN
The 2.4 GHz technology is used for many applications in
discussions and meetings. In addition to a wireless discussion
system other functions (light or volume control etc.) are operated
via a wireless 2.4 GHz touch screen of a media control system.
Furthermore, the participants of a meeting often have direct
internet access via a WLAN access point.
The Quinta conference system and WLAN make use of compatible
transmission standards. This should be considered when also
using a media control system with a touch screen. State-of the-art
devices correspond to the WLAN standard.
1. Configure the Quinta conference system to the RF channel
“Low”. The Quinta system then makes use of the frequency
range of 2401 to 2423 MHz. This frequency range must be
reserved for Quinta exclusively.
2. Configure the touch screen of the media control system to the
frequency range of 2426 to 2448 MHz. This corresponds to
the WLAN channel 6. This frequency range must be reserved
for the use of the touch screen exclusively.
3. Configure the WLAN access point to WLAN channel 11
making use of the frequency range 2451 to 2473 MHz. This
frequency range must be reserved for the use by WLAN
exclusively.
4. As an alternative you can operate Quinta in the 5.2 or 5.8 GHz
band.
