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
(EK 500 G4: “Frequency Preset menu item”, SKM 500 G4: “Frequency
Preset menu item”, SK 500 G4: “Frequency Preset menu item”, SKP 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.
140
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.
