Installing the EM 300-500 G4
Outputting audio signals
The EM 300-500 G4 has a balanced XLR-3M output socket and an unbalanced 6.3 mm jack output socket.
▷
Always use only one of the two BAL AF OUT output sockets for each
channel.
To connect an XLR cable:
▷
Plug the XLR cable into the AF OUT BAL socket of the EM 300-500 G4.
To connect a jack cable:
▷
Plug the jack cable into the AF OUT UNBAL socket of the EM 300500 G4.
31
Installing the EM 300-500 G4
Connecting antennas
To connect the supplied rod antennas:
▷
Connect the first rod antenna to the ANT I socket on the rear side of the
EM 300-500 G4.
▷
Connect the second rod antenna to the ANT II socket on the rear side
of the EM 300-500 G4.
▷
Gently angle the rod antennas to the left and right as shown in the figure.
If you are using more than one receiver, we recommend using remote
antennas and, as needed, Sennheiser antenna accessories. For more
information, visit the ew G4 product page at www.sennheiser.com.

Installing the EM 300-500 G4 in a rack
CAUTION
Rack mounting poses risks
When installing the device in a closed or multi-rack assembly, please consider that, during operation, the ambient temperature, the mechanical
loading and the electrical potentials will be different from those of devices
which are not mounted into a rack.
▷
Make sure that the ambient temperature within the rack does not exceed the permissible temperature limit specified in the specifications.
See “Specifications”.
▷
Ensure sufficient ventilation; if necessary, provide additional ventilation.
▷
Make sure that the mechanical loading of the rack is even.
▷
When connecting to the power supply system, observe the information
indicated on the type plate. Avoid circuit overloading. If necessary, provide overcurrent protection.
▷
When rack mounting, please note that intrinsically harmless leakage
currents of the individual power supply units may accumulate, thereby
exceeding the allowable limit value. As a remedy, ground the rack via
an additional ground connection.
33
Installing the EM 300-500 G4

software, refer to the instruction manual for the software. You can download the software here:
www.sennheiser.com/wsm
To perform the automatic frequency setup for multiple radio links simultaneously:
▷
Connect all of the receivers to one network using a network switch. See
“Creating a data network”.
▷
Please note that all receivers must be in the same IP address range.
• The IP addresses can be automatically assigned if there is a DHCP
server in the network.
• If there is no DHCP server in the network, the IP addresses must be
assigned manually. See “Advanced -> IP Address menu item”.
• Assign the IP addresses for all receivers in the 192.168.x.x range (the
link-local range 169.254.x.x is also a possible alternative).
▷
Open the Easy Setup menu item on one of the receivers.
This receiver is the master. You can choose any receiver to be the master.
▷
Perform the frequency scan on the master receiver as described above.
▷
From the scan results in the master receiver, select a frequency bank

Establishing a radio link
Establishing a radio link
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.
Use the Easy Setup function to perform an automatic frequency setup (see “Easy Setup menu item”).
2. Set a frequency in the receiver manually (see “Frequency Preset menu
item”) and synchronize it with the transmitter (see “Synchronizing devices”).
3. Set the frequency on the receiver and the transmitter manually
(EM 300–500 G4: “Frequency Preset menu item”, SKM 300 G4: “Frequency Preset menu item”, SK 300 G4: “Frequency Preset menu item”,
SKM 500 G4: “Frequency Preset menu item”, SK 500 G4: “Frequency
Preset menu item”).
Setting notes
Please note the following when synchronizing a transmitter with a receivers:
▷
Only use transmitters and receivers from the same frequency range
(see the type plate on the transmitter and receiver).
▷
Make sure that your chosen frequencies are listed in the frequency table for the particular frequency range (see “Frequency tables”).
▷
Ensure that the desired frequencies are permitted in your country and
apply for an operating license if necessary.

Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning and maintenance
Note the following information when cleaning and maintaining evolution
wireless G4 series products.
CAUTION
Liquids can damage the products’ electronics.
Liquids entering the product housing can cause a short-circuit and damage
the electronics.
▷
Keep all liquids away from the products.
▷
Do not use any solvents or cleansing agents.
▷
Disconnect the products from the power supply system and remove rechargeable batteries and batteries before you begin cleaning.
▷
Clean all products only with a soft, dry cloth.
▷
Note the special cleaning instructions below for the following products.
Cleaning the sound inlet basket of the microphone module
▷
Unscrew the top sound inlet basket from the microphone module by
turning it counterclockwise.
▷
Remove the foam insert.
You can clean the sound inlet basket in two ways:
▷
Use a slightly damp cloth to clean the top sound inlet basket from the
inside and outside.
▷
Use a brush and rinse with clean water.
▷
If necessary, clean the foam insert with a mild detergent or replace the
foam insert.
▷
Dry the top sound inlet basket and foam insert.
▷
Reinsert the foam insert.
210
Cleaning and maintenance
▷
Screw the sound inlet basket back onto the microphone module.
From time to time, you should also clean the microphone module contacts:
▷
Wipe the contacts of the microphone module with a soft, dry cloth.
