AC Mains
AC Mains input to the universal switched-mode power supply, operates over a wide range of AC input voltages
from 100V to 240V, 50/60Hz.
CobraNetTM Connectors–Primary/Secondary [BLU-800/BLU-320]
CobraNetTM is a licensed technology which allows CobraNetTM enabled Soundweb London devices to send
and receive (simultaneously) up to 32 channels of audio to and from other CobraNetTM enabled devices. The
CobraNetTM compatible devices within the SoundwebTM London system are fitted with a Peak Audio CobranetTM
CM-1 module. The module itself offers a Primary and a Secondary CobranetTM port. Under normal operation,
only the Primary port transmits and receives data to and from the network. Should the Primary port or connection
fail, the CM-1 module automatically switches to receive from and transmit with the Secondary port.
AVB [BLU-805/BLU-325]
Ethernet AVB, or Audio/Video Bridging, is a common name for a set of IEEE standards that ensure the transmission
of high quality streaming audio and video over a standard Ethernet connection. The BLU-805 and BLU-325
devices are fitted with an AVB module. The module allows Soundweb London devices to send and receive
(simultaneously) up to 64 channels of audio to and from other AVB-enabled devices. The module offers a
Primary and a Secondary AVB port. Under normal operation, only the Primary port transmits and receives data
to and from the network. Should the Primary port or connection fail, the AVB module automatically switches to
receive from and transmit with the Secondary port. NOTE: The Secondary port is not currently enabled. It will
be enabled in a future release of HiQnet London Architect. The physical AVB connections must be made using
Cat 5e cables and an AVB compatible network switch. See ‘Technical Specifications’ for compatible Ethernet
Switches. Do not connect the AVB ports to any switch which does not support AVB! When connecting only
two AVB devices together, a direct connection between devices can be made from the primary of one device

DanteTM [BLU-806/BLU-326]
DanteTM is a licensed technology from Audinate®. It uses standard Internet Protocols over 100Mb and/or Gigabit
Ethernet and is capable of transporting professional quality, low-latency audio. DanteTM runs on inexpensive
off-the-shelf computer networking hardware and does not require dedicated network infrastructure; Ethernet
switches transmit DanteTM digital media streams alongside ordinary data traffic. The BLU-806 and BLU-326
devices are fitted with a DanteTM module. The module allows Soundweb London devices to send and receive
up to 64X64 channels of audio at 48 kHz (up to 32X32 channels at 96 kHz) to and from other DanteTM-enabled
devices. The module offers a Primary and a Secondary DanteTM port. The Secondary port can be configured
for Swithed or Redundant operation using the Dante Controller software. When a device is set for Redundant
operation, the device will duplicate Dante audio traffic to both Primary and Secondary Ethernet ports. When a
device is set for Switched operation, the Secondary Ethernet port will behave as a standard switch port, allowing
daisy-chaining through the device. The physical DanteTM connections must be made using Cat 5e or Cat 6
cables when using a Gigabit network (Cat 5 may be used for purely 100Mbps networks).
BLU link
The Soundweb London digital audio bus (also informally referred to as “BLU link”) is a point-to-point digital
audio bus with 256 audio channels at 48K sample rate or 128 audio channels at 96K sample rate. The physical
connection is made with Cat 5e cable from the OUT port of one device to the IN port of another device. The
devices are connected in a daisy chain fashion continuing with the OUT port of one device connected to the
IN port of the next device. Redundancy can be provided by completing the loop and connecting the OUT port
from the last device to the IN port of the first device in the chain. DO NOT connect BLU link ports to a hub,
network switch, or router. All devices connected in the BLU link ring/chain must be configured for the same
audio sample rate.

Locate
Pressing the Locate switch on the rear of the unit will illuminate the Locate switch on the front and identify the
device within London Architect. Similarly the switch will illuminate if the device is selected from within London
Architect or from the Locate switch on the front panel.
RS232
The serial port allows 3rd-party control equipment to control and monitor the Soundweb London. The Soundweb
London can also send custom serial strings (in Decimal, Hexadecimal, or ASCII format) through the serial port.
Therefore, the Soundweb London can control virtually any device which has a serial port and a publicly
available protocol guide.
Ethernet
The main connection for the proprietary system control network. The Ethernet port allows BLU-8v2’s, BLU10’s, HiQnet London Architect, iOS devices, and 3rd-party control equipment to control and monitor the
Soundweb London. The Ethernet port also allows the Soundweb London to send and receive design files to and
from HiQnet London Architect. The Soundweb London can also send custom Ethernet messages (UDP or TCP;
in Decimal, Hexadecimal, or ASCII format) through the Ethernet port. Therefore, the Soundweb London can
control virtually any device which has an Ethernet port and a publicly available protocol guide.
Word Clock
[Buddy Link or 48k] [BLU-800/BLU-805/BLU-806/BLU-320/BLU-325/BLU-326]
On CobraNetTM equipped Soundweb London devices, these BNC connectors allow two similarly configured
Soundweb London devices to be linked together and operate as a redundant pair. A 48kHz system clock is
generated at the BNC OUT port when used in this fashion. If ‘Box B’ ceases to receive the 48kHz system clock
from ‘Box A’, due to power failure of ‘Box A’, ‘Box B’ will take over and begin receiving and transmitting audio
over the CobraNetTM network.
These connectors can also facilitate integration with external clocks when using BLU link or DanteTM, allowing
the Soundweb London devices to slave to a ‘house clock’, a common requirement in post-production, theatre,
and broadcast applications. Synchronizing the Soundweb London internal DSP processing clock to the house
clock avoids having to use Sample Rate Conversion on digital signals, resulting in superior audio. The supported
sync frequencies are 48 kHz, 48 kHz pull-down (47.952 kHz), 96 kHz, and 96 kHz pull-down (95.904 kHz).
Please refer to the London Architect help file for more information. The sample rate at which the Soundweb
London device is running will be present on the WORD CLOCK OUT.
NOTE: The BNC WORD CLOCK connectors serve no function when using AVB.
Audio Cable Wiring
All audio and control connections are made via Klippon pluggable terminal block connectors (also known as
BL, Phoenix or Combicon). 6-way female Klippon connectors (part number: 32-1226) are supplied for making
these connections.
Audio Input & Output Wiring Convention
Soundweb products provide cable shielding ‘back from the destination’ to eliminate ground loop problems.
This means that the shield (S) connection on an input is grounded, whereas the shield connection on an output
is floating (although connected via an internal network to ground for EMC compliance).
Balanced wiring–The convention for balanced
wiring (2-core plus shield) is shown here:

These connectors provide the balanced connections for the I/O card fitted in the four card slots in a Soundweb

card is fitted. Digital input cards are indicated with a blue LED and digital outputs cards with a red LED. AEC
input cards are indicated with a white LED. Telephone Hybrid cards are indicated with a yellow LED.
Control Inputs
There are 12 control inputs, also known as ‘General Purpose Inputs’ or
‘GPI’. The control inputs are used to connect contact closures (for control of
binary parameters, such as mutes), resistor ladders (for control of multistate
parameters, such as source selectors) or potentiometers (for control of
continuous parameters, such as volume faders). There are two common
(ground) connections ‘C’ to the left of the 12 control inputs, and two softwareassignable reference voltage outputs ‘R’ to the right. The control ports have two
modes of operation: 2-wire and 3-wire.
2-Wire Mode
In this mode, the 12 control inputs are internally ‘pulled up’ to +5V DC via
a 4.7kOhm resistor. Therefore, no external voltage source is needed to create
contact closure to ground for switches such as mute buttons or, resistance to
ground (for other multi-state or continuous controls such as Parameter Presets
or faders).

3-Wire Mode
This mode allows the use of linear pots or faders for continuous controls. A
pot would be wired as a potential divider with the top of the track connected
to the reference output R, the wiper to a control input and the bottom of the
track to a common C. High performance pots with track resistance between
10kOhms and 100kOhms are recommended.

Logic Outputs
There are 6 logic outputs, also known as “General Purpose Outputs” or
“GPO”. They are used to control LED’s or relays. The logic output can source
10mA at 5V DC, or sink 60mA up to 50V DC.
A high sensitivity relay (such as a reed relay) can be driven by connecting
multiple logic outputs in parallel. In the diagram to the right, this arrangement
will develop 4V across a 500-Ohm coil, providing that all four outputs are
activated simultaneously.
When sourcing from the Logic Output, an LED connected
between one output (Anode, A) and common (Cathode,
K) will illuminate when the logic output is activated,
without requiring any external current limiting resistor (the
Soundweb London contains an internal 440 Ohm resistor).

BSS Audio incorporates high quality mechanical fans in some products. All mechanical fans have a limited life
expectancy. We recommend annual inspection of fans for dust occlusion and excessive noise. Fan assemblies
should be replaced after six to ten years of use. Environmental factors such as elevated temperature, dust, and
smoke can adversely affect fan life. Systems exposed to these conditions should be inspected more frequently.
Fan replacement can be performed either at the factory or by an experienced technician in the field. Please
contact BSS Technical Support for more information on purchasing replacement parts or product service.
BSS Audio has a policy of continued product improvement and accordingly reserves the right to change features
and specifications without prior notice.
