FCC rules part 15, class A (Emission)
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC rules.
Operation is subject to the following conditions: (1)
This device may not cause harmful interference,
and (2) this device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may cause
undesired operation.
These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference when the
equipment is operated in residential, commercial or
light industrial environments. The equipment
generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency
energy and if not installed and used in accordance
with the user manual it may cause harmful
interference to radio communications.
You are cautioned that any changes or
modifications not expressly approved in this manual
could void your authority to operate this equipment.
Safety
Check that the voltage of your local power supply is
within the operating voltage of the unit (100-240V
AC). If a voltage conversion is required, consult
your DIS dealer or qualified personnel.
Should any liquid or solid object fall into the
cabinet, unplug the unit and have it checked by
qualified personnel before operating it further.
Installation precautions
Allow adequate air circulation to prevent internal
heat built-up. Do not place the unit on a surface
(rugs, blankets, etc.) that may block the ventilation
holes.
Do not install the unit in a location near heat
sources such as radiators or air ducts, or in a place
exposed to direct sunlight, excessive dust or
humidity, mechanical vibration or shock.
To avoid moisture condensations do not install the
unit where the temperature may rise rapidly.
When installing the unit inside a 19” rack, observe
that the rack is properly ventilated. The maximum
allowed temperature inside the rack is 40 °C.
Cleaning & Repacking
To keep the cabinet in its original condition,
periodically clean it with a soft cloth. Stubborn
stains may be removed with a cloth lightly
dampened with a mild detergent solution. Never use
organic solvents such as thinners or abrasive
cleaners since these will damage the cabinet.
Save the original shipping cardboard box and
packing material; they will become handy if you
ever have to ship the unit. For maximum protection,
re-pack the unit as originally packed from the
factory.
Warranty
The unit is minimum covered by 12 months
warranty against defects in materials or workmanship.
Set the Power switch to OFF if it is not used for

in the Main Menu. Pressing the Enter button
concludes the selection made, and at the same time
it indicates a confirmation of the possible changes
made within the selection. The Menu system returns
to the previous menu. Notice, that some changes are
applied immediately, and confirmation is thus not
required.
•
Menu button
The Menu button is also used, when a selection is
made in the Main Menu. The Menu button
concludes the selection, but in contrast to the Enter
button, the Menu button does not confirm a possible
change made within the selection. Instead, the

The purpose of an ambient noise microphone is to
provide sound from a meeting room/conference
hall, when there is no delegate/chairman using their
microphones.
Transmission of ambient noise rather than
transmitting no sound at all is a desirable feature
from listeners attending the meeting via
headphones. The ambient noise indicates to the
listeners, that there is no speaking activity going on,
and this information is very nice to have, when
interpreters are doing interpretation, and the speaker
stops speaking.
The setup menu has the following options:

Setting of Loudspeaker volume
4. Turn up the Linein >Loudspk Volume to
the level needed in the loudspeakers
1. Set the Mic>Loudspk to 0dB
q
3. Turn then the InputIn level down –8 dB to
–12dB from the clipping level. Depending
of the source connected, there might be
different “overhead” needed. But normally
8-12 db is enough.
2. Turn up the Loudspk Volume to the level
needed in the loudspeakers.
The principle is that the level of signal from the
Line Input is combined of two settings:
Setting Line input level
“LinelnLevel Adj” and “LineIn->Loudspk”.
The LinelnLevel Adj has to be set as high as
possible for maintaining the best S/N ration, but not
too high to avoid clipping, whereas the LineIn>LoudSpk is used for setting the audio level needed
in the loudspeakers.
1. Apply the signal to the Input connector
2. Turn up the input level on “LineInlevel
Adj” until you can see the overflow
indicator.

General guidelines
Connect the CU 6010 to the various DCS 6000
units using Cat5 or Cat5e FTP or STP screened
cables.
The operation of the DCS 6000 units is found in the
User Manual for the specific units.
feeding cable is long and/or the cables are
long between the units. Please consult the
next section (Max. Number of units to be
connected)
•
The max. number of languages configured
on chain A (A1 or A2) or B (B1 or B2) is
16. If more languages are required,
Interpreter sets for those languages have to
be divided between both chains (A and B).
Normally the languages are supposed to be
divided equally on chains A (A1 or A2) and
B (B1 or B2).
•
If the last unit in one chain is a CS 6032
Channel Selector, this unit has to be
terminated with an external termination, as
the CS 6032 does not have an internal
automatic termination.
Please observe the following guidelines:
•
Maximum cable length in one chain is 200
m (before repeating). This includes
interconnection cables between the units.
The max. usable cable length depends on
the units connected and length of feeding
cables etc.
•
Maximum cable length in one chain when
using repeaters is 650 m.
•
Although each of the outputs DCS-LAN
Network Output connectors (A1, A2, B1
and B2) have a 100W supply, this 100W
power is not all usable with long cables, as
there will be a power drop in the feeding
cable from the CU 6010 to the units
connected. If the feeding cables are short
and the cables between the units are short,
more units can be connected than if the
It is desirable that the square of the feeding cables
especially, but also the interconnection cables are as
big as possible to minimize the voltage drop in the
cables. Cat 5/Cat5E cables are delivered in various
gauges:

Built into 19” Racks
The unit has a built-in fan taking air in at the right
side of the unit and blowing the hot air out at the

stacked close with other units without extra room
for cooling air between them. Please check that the
