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 “EM 100 G4”.
▷
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.

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 100 G4: “Frequency Preset menu item”, SKM 100 G4: “Frequency
Preset menu item”, SK 100 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.
Please note the information at the following address:

Synchronizing devices
Synchronizing devices
You can synchronize ew 100 G4 series transmitters and receivers via the
receiver’s infrared interface.
The following Parameters are transferred to the transmitters:
•
Frequency Preset >> currently configured frequency (see “Frequency
Preset menu item”)
•
Name >> individually configured name (see “Name menu item”)
•
Pilot Tone >> current setting of the pilot tone on the receiver (see “Advanced -> Pilot Tone menu item”)
To synchronize the devices:
▷
Switch the transmitter and the receiver on.
▷
Press the SYNC button on the receiver.
Sync appears in the receiver’s display and the blue LED turns blue.
▷
Hold the infra-red interface of the transmitter (see “Operating elements
121
Synchronizing devices
of the SKM 100 G4 handheld transmitter” and “Operating elements of
the SK 100 G4 bodypack transmitter”) in front of the infra-red interface
of the receiver (see “Operating elements on the front of the device”).
The parameters are transferred to the transmitter. The blue LED blinks
during transmission.
When the transfer is complete, a tick appears in the receiver’s display
as a confirmation. Then the receiver will return to the current standard
display.
To cancel synchronization:
▷
Press the ESC button on the receiver.
An X appears in the display.
This icon also appears when:
•
no transmitter is found or the transmitter is not compatible.
•
no transmitter is found and the synchronization process automatically
ends after 30 seconds.
