PRODUCT INFORMATION
The Digital 6000 Series
For more information about the individual products in the Digital 6000 series, see „Products in the Digital 6000 series“.
For information about the available accessories, see „Accessories“.
►
When perfection is required there can be no compromises. The Digital
6000 system combines experience, high standards and excellent instincts
for day-to-day work in the modern live event industry into one simple
promise: no compromises in RF robustness, sound or workflow.
The 2-channel system delivers quality, reliability and efficiency in a compact 19-inch/1 RU format. The series incorporates the renowned Long
Range mode with the proprietary audio codec (SeDAC) of the wireless
masterpiece, Digital 9000.
True bit diversity evaluates the quality of each individual bit and combines
the bits from the two parallel reception streams. In combination with a
switching bandwidth of 244 MHz and equidistant frequency grid, it provides the greatest possible transmission reliability even in demanding RF
environments. Digital 6000 is compatible with many other Sennheiser antennas and capsules and has an easy-to-follow user interface on clear
OLED displays, digital and analog outputs and AES 256 encryption. The
Dante Version with an Audinate Brooklyn II Card offers an additional RJ-45
connector.
The series is ideal for touring and rental companies, theater and musical
productions, broadcasting, large places of worship and corporate applications.

The Digital 6000 Series
The 6000 series includes a 2-channel receiver, a bodypack transmitter, a
handheld transmitter and a modular 19-inch rack-mounted charger.
Digital 6000 combines the benefits of modern audio technology with an intelligent operating concept. The frequency range can be scanned directly
with the receiver, which then distributes free frequencies within the network. The equipment can also be monitored and configured via Wireless
System Manager (WSM) software. The high-quality OLED display provides
an overview with a multitude of operating data. Intelligent home screens
lead you directly to important contextual information with no need for timeconsuming navigation. In addition to the popular RF graphs, the link quality
display (LQI) allows a real-time evaluation of the wireless link quality. That
allows you to identify and eliminate risks immediately.
Digital 6000 integrates seamlessly into existing digital and analog infrastructures. The EM 6000 receiver has a digital AES3 output with word
clock inputs and outputs, high-quality transformer-balanced analog XLR-3
outputs, 6.3 mm (1/4") jack outputs and a 6.3 mm (1/4") headphone output.
The Dante version with an Audinate Brooklyn II card offers an additional
Amphenol RJ-45 jack plug for integrating the receiver into a Dante network.
The Digital 6000 series includes a 2-channel receiver available in 2 versions, a bodypack transmitter, a handheld transmitter and a modular 19inch rack-mounted charger.

EM 6000 | EM 6000 DANTE 2-channel receiver
►
The digital 2-channel receiver works with a switching bandwidth of
244 MHz (470 to 714 MHz), which is covered by three transmitter versions.
For larger 4-channel systems, you can cascade up to EM 6000s without using additional antenna splitters and you then require only one pair of antennas.
The 2-channel receiver is available in 2 variants:
•
EM 6000
•
EM 6000 DANTE
The EM 6000 DANTE variant is identical in construction to the EM 6000.
The only difference is that it also has an integrated Dante™ interface (Audinate Brooklyn II) for connecting the device to a Dante™ network. Two
modes are supported for the two Dante™ sockets: Redundant and Through.

Rechargeable batteries and battery compartments
Rechargeable batteries:
To operate the transmitters, we recommend using the rechargeable batteries BA 60 (for the SKM 6000 handheld transmitter), BA 61 (for the
SK 6000 bodypack transmitter) or BA 62 (for the SK 6212 bodypack transmitter). The rechargeable batteries are available as accessories. These
lithium-ion rechargeable batteries have been especially developed to
achieve the optimum service life and operational reliability for the transmitters.
Lithium-ion rechargeable batteries do not have a memory effect and have
a greater power density than primary batteries and NiMh rechargeable
batteries. In addition, the remaining battery life of the transmitters can be
read to the exact minute on the transmitter and receiver.
These rechargeable batteries must be charged only with Sennheiser
L 6000 (BA 60, BA 61 and BA 62) and L 60 (BA 60 and BA 61) chargers.
Battery compartments:
With the B 60 battery compartment (for the SKM 6000 handheld transmitter) and B 61 battery compartment (for the SK 6000 bodypack transmitter)
that are also available as accessories, you can use AA batteries and rechargeable AA batteries. However, the battery life of the transmitters is
shorter than the BA 60 and BA 61 rechargeable battery life and depends
heavily on the quality, capacitance and age of the batteries or rechargeable
batteries used.
The remaining battery life can only be roughly estimated from the battery
icon and a specific battery life cannot be displayed. At the end of the battery life, the transmitters may also experience oscillating on-off switching
behavior.
The use of battery compartments may be a solution for rehearsals or to
avoid disasters, but should generally not be considered as part of an event.

Establishing a radio link
Establishing a radio link
Note the following points when you establish a radio link between the
transmitter and receiver.
Adjusting frequencies
To establish a radio link between the transmitter and receiver, the same
frequency must be set in both devices.
You can do this in a number of different ways:
1. Set a frequency in the receiving channel of the receiver (see „Frequency
menu item“) and synchronize it with the transmitter (see „Synchronizing
devices“).
2. Automatically allocate the frequencies using the Auto-Setup function
(see „Scan & Auto-Setup menu item“).
3. Set the frequency on the receiving channel of the receiver and on the
transmitter manually (EM 6000: „Frequency menu item“, SK 6000: „Operating the SKM 6000 menu“, SK 6212: „Operating the SK 6212 menu“,
SKM 6000: „Operating the SK 6000 menu“).
Encrypting the radio link
For maximum data security, you can activate AES 256 encryption for the
radio link.
This function can be activated only on the receiver (see „Encryption menu
item“) and then has to be synchronized to the transmitter (see „Synchronizing devices“).
Meaning of the Link Quality Indicator
The LQI (Link Quality Indicator) on both EM 6000 displays shows the transmission quality for the channel in question.
On the one hand, the transmission quality depends on the field strength
(RF indicator on the receiving channel display). However, on the other
hand, it also depends on external sources of interference that cannot be
identified on the RF indicator (for example, they may be on the same frequency or a very close neighboring frequency or may not affect the RF
strength).
As a basic principle, an LQI value significantly higher than 50% should be
achieved for a secure transmission.
The LQI display shows the following information:
180
Establishing a radio link
►
Green range from 50% to 100%:
•
No transmission errors
The transmission quality is good enough to ensure an audio quality of
100%.
Yellow range from 20% to 49%:
•
Individual transmission errors: short-term error correction active
•
Individual audio artifacts may be audible
There are initial transmission errors. In rare cases, there are initial audible
audio artifacts. Error correction may be active in this case.
Orange range from 1% to 19%:
•
Frequent transmission errors: long-term error correction active
•
Risk of audio drop-outs
The transmission errors increase, which means that the error correction
duration also increases. There is a risk of audio drop-outs.
Red range 0%:
•
No transmission
In this range, the transmission quality is so poor that audio drop-outs can
no longer be avoided.
181
Synchronizing devices
Synchronizing devices

Overview
USER KNOWLEDGE
Overview
In this section, we want to provide you with useful background information
about specific issues that play an important role in using the Digital 6000
series.
Antennas
There are different types of antennas, which are used in different ways. For
information about this subject, see „Recommendations for using antennas“.
Frequency management and an equidistant frequency grid
The Digital 6000 series can work in an equidistant frequency grid because
the transmitter and receiver are free from intermodulation. For information
about this subject, see „Equidistant frequency grid“.
Word clock scenarios
The EM 6000 can output digital audio signals (AES/EBU or Dante™). When
doing so, correct clocking must be ensured by using a word clock. For information about this subject, see „Word clock scenarios for digital audio
(AES3 and Dante™)“.
183
Recommendations for using antennas
Recommendations for using antennas
Click the two options above to learn more about using rod antennas and remote antennas.
Rod antennas (included in the delivery)
The EM 6000 can be operated throughout the entire frequency spectrum
with the UHF rod antennas included in the delivery.
For optimum range and reliability, we recommend using remote antennas
because antennas directly on the device do not have the optimum distance
from each other and cannot be aligned with the transmitters.
You can find more information about remote antennas under „Remote
antennas“.
Remote antennas
We recommend using remote antennas instead of the rod antennas supplied. Remote antennas achieve better reception.
The antennas are connected to the receiver using coaxial cables and
mounted on a conventional microphone stand. They should be positioned
so that at least one antenna always has a free line of sight to the transmitters. The distance between the antennas should be approx. 1 to 2 m (3.3 to
6.5 ft) to ensure a good diversity response from the receiver.
For information about the antennas and accessories recommended
by us, see „Antennas and accessories“.
Active vs passive antennas
Passive antennas do not require a power supply and do not have any electronics. Active antennas have a fitted amplifier and require a power supply.
If you are using active antennas:
▷
Activate the power supply for external antenna amplifiers in the
EM 6000 system menu
See „System -> Booster Feed menu item“ under „System menu item“.
If you are using passive antennas, you can use them as active antennas by
using an external antenna amplifier.
General recommendation
Generally, passive antennas should be used. The EM 6000 is designed for
this type of application.
Active antennas are used to balance the attenuation in the coaxial cable
and supply the receivers with a sufficiently strong signal. However, this is
not required with the usual cable lengths of up to approx. 10 m (32 ft).
When active antennas are used incorrectly, there is a risk of overloading
the receiver. In addition, noise signals are always amplified as well as the
wanted signal, which eliminates the benefit to the levels.
184
Recommendations for using antennas
Types of remote antenna
Antennas with different types of pick-up pattern are available:
•
Omni-directional antennas receive the signals from every horizontal
direction equally and are not directed.
•
Directional antennas amplify signals from a specific direction while
the remaining signals are attenuated. If you want to receive only transmitters from a specific direction, for example, if the antennas are next
to a stage, we recommend using this type of antenna because it can significantly improve the reception quality.
Losses due to cable properties and length
The antennas must be connected to the receivers using coaxial cables with
BNC connectors.
The quality of this cable can vary greatly. The impedance must be 50 ohm
and meet the RG58 standard at minimum. The cable must be mechanically
undamaged and must not be kinked.
All coaxial cables have attenuation that increases with the length. Therefore, the length should not be greater than necessary and a length of 10 m
(32 ft) should not be exceeded whenever possible.
▷
With longer cables, ensure the attenuation levels are good or use active
antennas.
185
Equidistant frequency grid
Equidistant frequency grid
The Digital 6000 series can work in an equidistant frequency grid because
the transmitter and receiver are free from intermodulation. In this case, all
of the assigned frequencies are the same distance from each other.
•
The minimum frequency spacing is then 600 kHz.
•
The minimum distance from the transmitters to the antennas should be
4 m (13 ft).
•
You can set up the equidistant frequency grid only if you are using exclusively Digital 6000 and Digital 9000 units in the production environment.
Setting up the equidistant frequency grid
You can set up the equidistant frequency grid in a number of different
ways:
1.
You can set it up automatically using the Auto Setup function. Frequency bank E, which is provided for this purpose, is configured here.
You can find more information about this subject under „Scan & AutoSetup menu item“. To use this function, all of the EM 6000 devices
must be connected to the same network.
2. You can configure the function via the Sennheiser WSM software. The
WSM software is available to download free of charge online at
www.sennheiser.com.
3. You can set it up manually on all of the receiving channels in your production environment. Configure each receiving channel so that they
have the same frequency spacing from each other (at least 600 kHz).
With this variant, you can also scan the environment in banks B1 to B6
(see „Scan & Auto-Setup menu item“) and manually transfer the free
frequencies that are then displayed to your systems.
After you set up the frequencies for the individual receiving channels, the
frequencies then just have to be transferred to the corresponding transmitters via the Sync function.
For information about the Sync functions, see „Synchronizing devices“.
186
Word clock scenarios for digital audio (AES3 and Dante™)
Word clock scenarios for digital audio
(AES3 and Dante™)
The EM 6000 supports two clock rates: 48 kHz and 96 kHz (see „System > Wordclock menu item“ under „System menu item“).
You can use either the internal word clock on the EM 6000 or connect an
external word clock (see „Connecting the word clock“).
An external word clock can also be forwarded to a downstream device via
the word clock output. This feature allows you to cascade up to 16 EM 6000
devices.
Note that only the word clock on the word clock input can be forwarded via the word clock output. The internal word clock is not forwarded
via the word clock output.
Word clock with analog audio
A clock generator is always required. For purely analog audio, the internal
word clock has to be used for clocking because a digital clock generator is
not available. If an external word clock is connected but no usable signal is
detected, the EM 6000 automatically switches to the internal word clock.
For the analog audio outputs on the EM 6000, the clock rate is unimportant
because it always operates at the better clock rate of 96 kHz. The selection
of the clock rate affects only the clocking for the AES3 stream and the Dante™ interface (see below).
Word clock with digital audio
If multiple devices with digital audio signals are connected in a production
environment, their clock signals must be synchronized via a word clock,
otherwise audio errors occur. The word clock of one device becomes the
master. All of the other devices become slaves and synchronize with the
master.
AES3
The selection of the internal clock rate determines the clocking for the
AES3 stream. In an AES3 application, the device connected to the EM 6000
via the digital audio output can be synchronized via the audio stream.
If there are multiple AES3 connections, the EM 6000 must be synchronized
with all of the other devices externally via the word clock input and output.
Dante™
The Audinate Brooklyn II Dante™ interface installed in the EM 6000
should be understood as a standalone digital audio device with its own
word clock and also has to be clocked either internally or externally.
You require the Dante Controller software from Audinate for these
settings. You can access it using the link below:
Audinate Dante Controller
187
Word clock scenarios for digital audio (AES3 and Dante™)
Defining the master and slave
The EM 6000 word clock input, the EM 6000 internal word clock, the word
clock of the Audinate Brooklyn II Dante™ interface, or the Dante™ network
can be defined as the master.
To define the internal word clock of the EM 6000 as the master:
▷
In the Wordclock menu in the EM 6000 System menu item, choose the
option Internal 48 kHz or Internal 96 kHz (see „System -> Wordclock
menu item“ under „System menu item“).
▷
In the Audinate Dante Controller software, activate the options Enable Sync to External and Preferred Master.
To define the BNC word clock input of the EM 6000 as the master:
▷
In the Wordclock menu in the EM 6000 System menu item, choose the
option External BNC (see „System -> Wordclock menu item“ under
„System menu item“).
▷
In the Audinate Dante Controller software, activate the options Enable Sync to External and Preferred Master.
To define the Dante™ interface of the EM 6000 as the master:
▷
In the Wordclock menu in the EM 6000 System menu item, choose the
option External Dante (see „System -> Wordclock menu item“ under
„System menu item“).
▷
In the Audinate Dante Controller software, deactivate the option Enable Sync to External.
▷
In the Audinate Dante Controller software, activate the option Preferred Master.
To define the Dante™ interface of the EM 6000 as the slave:
▷
In the Wordclock menu in the EM 6000 System menu item, choose the
option External Dante (see „System -> Wordclock menu item“ under
„System menu item“).
▷
In the Audinate Dante Controller software, deactivate the options Enable Sync to External and Preferred Master.
