3
The SK 100 G3 bodypack transmitter
For an overview of the frequency presets, please refer to the
supplied frequency information sheet. Updated versions of
the frequency information sheet can be downloaded from
the SK 100 G3 product page on our website at
www.sennheiser.com.
The frequency bank “U” allows you to freely select and
store frequencies. It might be that these frequencies are
not intermodulation-free.

Adjusting settings via the operating menu
The bodypack transmitter adds an inaudible signal, known
as the pilot tone, to the transmitted signal. The receiver
detects and evaluates the pilot tone.
The pilot tone supports the receiver’s squelch function
(Squelch) and protects against interference due to
RF signals from other devices.
Devices of the ew 100 G1 series (generation 1) do not
support the pilot tone function. Therefore, please observe
the following when combining a bodypack transmitter or
receiver of the ew 100 G3 series (generation 3) with
devices from an earlier evolution wireless generation:

Synchronizing the bodypack transmitter with a receiver
Synchronizing the bodypack
transmitter with a receiver
When synchronizing the bodypack transmitter with a
receiver, please observe the following:
왘 Only use a transmitter and a receiver from the
same frequency range (see the type plate on the
transmitter and the receiver).
왘 Make sure that the desired frequencies are listed
in the enclosed frequency information sheet.
왘 Make sure that the desired frequencies are
approved and legal in your country and, if necessary, apply for an operating license.
Synchronizing the bodypack transmitter
with the receiver – individual operation
Upon delivery, the bodypack transmitter and the receiver
are synchronized with each other.
If, however, you cannot establish a transmission link
between bodypack transmitter and receiver, you have to
synchronize the channels of the devices.
For information on automatic synchronization of the bodypack transmitter with the receiver (individual operation),
refer to the instruction manual of the receiver. This information is marked with the
icon.
Alternatively, you can set the channel on the bodypack
transmitter manually:
왘 Make sure that you set the bodypack transmitter to the
same frequency bank and the same channel as the
receiver (see page 21).
If you still cannot establish a transmission link, refer to the
chapter “If a problem occurs ...” on page 29.
Synchronizing bodypack transmitters with
receivers – multi-channel operation
Combined with ew 100 G3 receivers, ew 100 G3 bodypack
transmitters can form transmission links that can be used
in multi-channel systems.
For information on automatic synchronization of bodypack
transmitters with receivers (multi-channel operation), refer
to the instruction manual of your receiver.
For more information on multi-channel operation, visit the
SK 100 G3 product page at www.sennheiser.com.

Cleaning the bodypack transmitter
Cleaning the bodypack
transmitter
CAUTION! Liquids can damage the electronics of the
bodypack transmitter!
Liquids entering the housing of the device
can cause a short-circuit and damage the
electronics.
왘 Keep all liquids away from the bodypack
transmitter.
왘 Use a cloth to clean the bodypack transmitter from time
to time.
왘 Do not use any solvents or cleansing agents.

Recommendations and tips
Recommendations and tips
... for the ME 2 and ME 4 clip-on microphones
•
To reduce level variations to a minimum when the user
turns his or her head away from the microphone,
attach the microphone as centrally as possible.
•
To protect the microphone against excessive sweat/
moisture, avoid direct skin contact.
•
Attach the microphone carefully and conduct the cable
so that noise due to friction is avoided.
•
Always use the ME 4 directional microphone with a
windshield and direct the microphone towards the
sound source (e.g. mouth).
... for the ME 3 headmic
•
Always use the microphone with a pop shield and position the microphone at the corner of the mouth.
•
You can vary the bass reproduction by increasing/
decreasing the talking distance.
•
Make sure that the sound inlet is directed towards the
mouth. The sound inlet is marked with a little dot.
... for the bodypack transmitter
•
Make sure that the antenna and the microphone cable
do not cross.
•
The antenna should hang freely and be at least 1 cm
away from the body. The antenna must not be in direct
contact with the skin.
•
For best results, make sure that the transmitter sensitivity is correctly adjusted.
... for optimum reception
•
Transmission range depends to a large extent on location and can vary from about 10 m to about 150 m.
There should be a “free line of sight” between transmitting and receiving antennas.
•
To avoid overloading the receiver, observe a minimum
distance of 5 m between transmitting and receiving
antennas.
... for multi-channel operation
•
For multi-channel operation, you should only use the
channels within one frequency bank. Each of the
frequency banks “1” to “20” accommodates factorypreset frequencies which are intermodulation-free.
•
When using several transmitters simultaneously, interference can be avoided by maintaining a minimum
distance of 20 cm between two transmitters.
