MT110-100/102
16-In 8-Out Audio Matrix Switcher Card
FEATURES/DESCRIPTION
GENERAL
Inputs
The MT110-100 and MT110-102 are balanced
input Audio Matrix Switching Cards. Each card
allows any input to be independently switched to
any of the outputs. All inputs and outputs can be
wired for unbalanced or balanced audio, allowing
longer cable runs and superior noise resistance.
Input Connectors
These cards utilize AC coupling on their inputs for
ideal signal transfer characteristics. Switching is
controlled with easy-to-use ASCII commands from
a control system or computer connected to the
RS-232 port of a MultiTasker™ enclosure. Each
card consumes two slots in a MultiTasker™
enclosure, and all input and output connections are
accomplished via captive screw terminal blocks.

Although designated as a 16x8 matrix switcher, the
MT110-100/102 can be used in a variety of ways to
provide different capabilities. For example, one
16x8 card can handle mono audio while two 16x8
cards handle stereo audio, or a single 16x8 card
can be used to create an 8x4 stereo audio matrix.
Similarly, a single 16x8 card can be used to provide
two 4x2 stereo audio matrix switchers. The
MT110-100 is a standard matrix switcher, whereas
the MT110-102 has individual volume trim control
on each output.

INSTALLING YOUR MT110-100/102
7.1.1 RS-232 INTERFACE
6
The
RS-232
commands,
for
the
MT110-100/102, are in a simple ASCII character
format.
Step 1. Turn off power to the MultiTasker™
enclosure.
Step 2. Slide the MT110-100/102 into an available
slot in the MultiTasker™ Basic Enclosure
in order to connect to the bus. Make sure
that the MT110-100/102 card fits into
place. Secure the card to the
MultiTasker™ by tightening the retainer
screws located on the top and bottom of
the MT110-100/102 card.
Square brackets “[ ]” are part of the
command.
2.
Use uppercase letters for all commands.
The cards in a MultiTasker™ system are
capable of performing various functions, as well
as providing feedback to the user or control
system. Commands instruct a card to perform
specific actions or request information about the
status of the card. Some commands do both
simultaneously.
Step 3. Turn on power to the MultiTasker™
enclosure.
Step 4. The LED on the card panel will turn red
indicating that the card is in full operation.
A green LED indicates that a signal is
present. An LED that is blinking red
indicates that the card is experiencing a
problem. If the LED is blinking, see
Troubleshooting Guide in section 8.
A command that instructs the card to simply
perform an action will generate feedback of “[ ]”.
The open bracket immediately followed by a
close bracket indicates the card received a valid
command.
If the command requested
information from the card, the feedback
generated by the card is the acknowledgement
of having received a valid command. Invalid
commands generate feedback of “[ERR001]”.
Step 5. Connect audio cables from the audio
source to the input connector of the
MT110-100/102. Connect the output
connectors of the MT110-100/102 to the
audio equipment through an audio cable.
After processing a command, an “OK” or
[ERR001] will be returned as feedback if ‘F’ is
included at the end of a command string.
Step 6. Starting from the left, identify the slot
number where the MT110-100/102 card is
plugged into the Enclosure and note that
it is for RS-232 control.
OPERATION
1.
Commands ending in ‘S’ will be saved into
memory. Commands not ending in ‘S’ will still be
executed, but will not be restored when the
system is reset or powered off, then on.

7.2 DESCRIPTION OF COMMANDS
7.1 RS-232 CONTROL
Each command consists of three
Function, Card ID, and Unit ID.
[ Function , Card ID , Unit ID ]
The MT110-100/102 has many advanced remote
control capabilities, which are accessible through
standard RS-232 communication. Actual control
may be accomplished through a computer control
system or any other device capable of sending
RS-232 commands.
parts:
Example: [VERC3U2]
VER = Function
C3 = Card ID or Group ID
U2 = Unit ID
For Function, see a detailed explanation under
each command description.
400-0132-005

MULTITASKER™
The Card ID is a unique identifier. It is equal to
the enclosure slot number, or it may be an
assigned value. As the slot number, the value
can range from 1 to 4 up to 1 to 20 depending
on the enclosure. If the value is assigned, the ID
may be a maximum of 99.
2. [C]
This command receives the status of the card.
Command Format: [CnUi]
Cn = card ID (n = # from 1 to max slots)
Ui = unit id (i = 0 to 9)
Card ID 0 (C0) is used for the controller and
cannot be reassigned.
Example:
There is an MT110-102 card in slot 4. Sending
the command [C4] to the MultiTasker™ will yield
feedback similar to the following:
The Group ID is a number representing a group
of cards defined with the [WR] command. When
using the Group ID, all cards in the group will
perform the given instruction.
CONFIGURATION:
Matrix:16x8, In-Offset=0, Out-Offset=0

In01-Out08 ON
32/32
Changing the position of a card will significantly
affect the commands recorded on software
definitions or third-party control systems.
The Unit ID has a value from 0 to 9. Unit ID 0
should be used for single unit operation. If the
Unit ID is set to zero, each command may be
used without Ui. Use the command [SETU0],
as explained in the MT100-100 User’s Guide.
Example:
[VERC3]:
For Unit ID Zero
[VERC3Ui]: For Unit ID other than Zero
[VERC3]:
Equivalent to [VERC3U0]
In this example, Input 1 is connected to all
outputs except for Output 2, which is connected
to Input 2. All outputs are turned on, or enabled.
1. [VER]
This command displays the software version
and card type for the card.
The volume level for each output is shown next
to its connection. The maximum level is 32 out
of 32 which is equal to a gain of one.
Command Format: [VERCnUi]
Cn = Card ID (n = # from 1 to max slots)
If there is no card in slot 4, sending the [C4]
command will not return any feedback.
Ui = Unit ID (i = # from 0 to 9)
3. [CnS]
Example:
This command saves the input to output
connections, on/off status and output volume
settings for each output. The saved
configuration will be restored after the system is
reset or powered off, then on.
Send the command [VERC4] to check the
version of the MT110-102 with card ID #4. The
system will return the following feedback:
[MT110-102 690-0152-011 C04]
MT110-102
= model number
690-0152-011 = software version
C04

After processing a command, an “OK” or
“[ERR001]” will be returned as feedback if ‘F’ is
included at the end of a command string.
[SW]
14. [IO]
This command connects a single input to a
single output in the current matrix configuration.
12. […P] – PATH
This command will set the path for the output,
but it is not active until the switch command,
[SW], is executed. Commands ending in ‘P’ are
not executed immediately. The path for outputs
on multiple cards or the same card can be
preloaded. See the examples for the [ON] and
[OFF] commands.
Command Format: [ImOxCnUi]
m
= Input (m= # from 1 to 8)
x
= Output (x = # from 1 to 8)
Cn = Card ID (n = slot # from 1 to max slots)
Ui = Unit ID (i = # from 0 to 9)
Example:
Example:
There is an MT110-102 in slot 4. Input 1 is
connected to all outputs and all outputs are on.
The PATH command has been used to set
Input 2 to Output 1 and turn off Outputs 2 and 3
simultaneously. If checking the status prior to
sending the [SW] command, the feedback will
appear as follows for the above connection
settings:
400-0132-005
32/32
32/32
32/32
Connect Input 1 to Output 1 for the MT110-102
in slot 5. Send the command [I1O1C5] and
Input 1 will be connected to Output 1.
15. [IO*]
This command connects a single input to all the
outputs in the current matrix configuration.

Cn = Card ID (n = slot # from 1 to max slots)
Ci = Card ID (i = # from 1 to max slots)
Ui = Unit ID (i = # from 0 to 9)
Example:
Example:
[OSO16C8] sets the output offset value to 16 for
the card in slot 8. The outputs on card 8 will now
be addressed by the value of their physical
number plus the offset value. In this case,
Output 1 would now be Output 17.
Connect Input 1 to all outputs for the
MT110-102 in slot 5. Send the command
[I1O*C5] and Input 1 will be connected to all
outputs.
19. [FBD]
16. [CLR]
Command Format: [CLRCnUi]
This command turns feedback delay on or off. It
is necessary when installing some newer cards
in older systems. If the system does not receive
all of the feedback from the card, the card may
be communicating too fast. This command will
slow down the card's communication rate.
Cn = Group ID (n = # from max slots)
Command Format: [FBDmCnUi]
Ui = Unit ID (i = # from 0-9)
m
Example:
Cn = Card ID (n = # from 1 to max slots)
To clear the card in slot 4, send the [CLRC4]
command. The card in slot 4 is now set to its
default values.
Ui = Unit ID (i = from 0 to 9)
This command clears the card, restoring the
default settings. In this case, Input 1 to all
outputs, all outputs on and all input levels to
maximum.
Example:
The command [HELPC4] is sent to the card in
slot 4. Some of the HELP file is displayed on the
screen, but most is missing. Send the command
[FBD1C4] to slow down the rate at which the
card sends feedback to the system.
17. [OSI]
This command sets the input offset value that is
applied to all inputs. The default is zero, or
Input 1 equals Input 1. An offset of 16 would
make Input 1 equal to Input 17.
ID COMMANDS: RSI, SIDn, SIDnCi, SID+, RSN
Command Format: [OSImCi]
The default Card ID is the same as the card slot
number. The next several commands allow the
user to change the Card ID to a value other than
the slot number. Once the ID is changed,
moving the card to another slot will not change
the card ID. If a card in slot 4 is set to ID 1, then
moved to slot 10, its ID will remain 1. The RSI
command forces each installed card to take its
slot number as its ID number, regardless of the
slot in which it is installed.
m = Offset (m = # from 0 to 128)
Ci = Card ID (i = # from 1 to max slots)
Example:
[OSI16C8] sets the input offset value to 16 for
the card in slot 8. The inputs on card 8 will now
be their physical number plus the offset value.
In this case, Input 1 would now be Input 17.
18. [OSO]
This command sets the output offset value that
is applied to all outputs. The default is zero, or
Output 1 equals Output 1. An offset of 16 would
make Output 1 equal to Output 17.

MULTITASKER™
Some cards require more than one slot in the
MultiTasker™ system. As an example, some
matrix switcher cards require 4 slots. If there are
five of these cards installed, they would be
numbered C4, C8, C12, C16 and C20.
Changing the Card ID allows the user to define
the cards as C1, C2, C3, C4 and C5.
21. [SIDn]
This command sets all the cards installed in the
MultiTasker™ system to the same Card ID.
After sending this command, all cards will be
addressed with the same ID. Use caution when
sending this command to a system with multiple
board types.
Another use for changing the Card ID is to be
able to use multiple systems without having to
set each unit to a different Unit ID. All systems
may be left as Unit ID 0 for ease of
programming. The cards in the first unit may be
numbered 1-10 and in the second unit 11-20.
Command Format: [SIDn]
n
= Card ID (n = # from 1 to 99)
Example:
Send the command [SID1] to the system. All the
cards in the system now have ID 1. Any
commands that are sent to Card ID 1 will be
received and executed by each card.
The ID commands work with all MultiTasker™
Front Panel systems. However, front panels that
have firmware releases prior to the following will
not be able to address Card IDs greater than
the number of slots in the system:
22. [SIDnCi]
690-0122-019 = Version 019 or later.
This command sets the Card ID of a single card
to a number from 1 to 99.
690-0123-005 = Version 005 or later.
Command Format: [SIDnCi]
690-0124-019 = Version 019 or later.
n = Card ID (n = # from 1 to 99)
Ci = Slot Number (i = # from 1 to max slots)
Send the command [VER], and the system will
respond with feedback that includes the
following:
Example:
Send the command [SID50C10] to set the ID of
the card in slot 10 to an ID of 50.
690-0122-019 690-0123-005 690-0124-019
23. [SID+]
Check the last three digits against the numbers
above to determine if the Card ID commands
can address all 99 Card IDs.
This command sets the Card ID of all cards to
their slot number plus the offset value.
20. [RSI]
Command Format: [SID+n]
This command resets the card IDs in the
system. After sending this command, each card
ID in the system will match the slot number of
the card. If the card is moved to another slot, its
ID number will be the new slot number.
n = Offset amount (n = # from 0 to 99)
The maximum Card ID is 99, so subtract
the highest slot number from 99 to find the
maximum offset. For example, in an 8 slot
enclosure, the maximum offset would be
91. The slot number, 8, plus the offset, 91,
equals 99.
Command Format: [RSI]
Example:
Example:
Send the command [RSI] to the system with
Unit ID 0. The card in slot 1 will have ID 1, the
card in slot 2 will have ID 2 and so on. If the
card in slot 1 is then moved to slot 4, the card ID
will then be 4.
400-0132-005
There are two, 20 slot enclosures to be
connected together during normal operation.
The first unit will use the default card IDs where
the card ID is equal to its slot numbers. The
second unit will have the same Unit ID, but each
card ID will be offset by 20.
16
MULTITASKER™
Connect the computer to the second unit only
and send [SID+20] to set the ID of all the cards
in the enclosure to their slot number plus 20.
Reconnect both units to the computer.
Command Format: [WRCn1Cn2…GkUi]
The cards in the first unit will be referenced as
card IDs 1-20 and the cards in the second unit
will be referenced by card IDs 21-40.
Ui = Unit ID (i = # from 0-9)
Cn = Card ID (n = slot # from 1 to max slots)
Gk = Group number (k = # from 1-8)
Example:
Group cards 2, 4, and 6 as group 5 of Unit ID 1
by sending the command [WRC2C4C6G5U1].
After executing this command, cards 2, 4 and 6
will be grouped together as group 5 of Unit ID 1.
The system will return the following feedback:
24. [RSN]
This command reads the slot number of the
card with a specified ID number, and returns the
value to the system to be displayed in the
terminal window. If more than one card has the
same ID, each slot number will be displayed.
[G5=C2C4C6]
Now, when a command is sent to G5, each
board in G5 will execute the same command.
Command Format: [RSNCi]
Ci = Card ID (i = # from 1 to 99)
26. [RMC]
Example:
This command may be used to remove one or
more group members from a group. Reset the
system after using this command for all changes
to take effect.
The card in slot 4 uses four slots. Its ID was set
to C1 since it is the first card in the system,
reading from left to right. Send the command
[RSNC1] to find the slot number of C1. The
system will respond with the following:
Command Format: [RMCn1Cn2…GkUi]
Cn = Card ID (n= # from 1 to max slots)
[4]
Gk = Group ID (k = # from 1-8)
GROUP COMMANDS
Ui = Unit ID (i = # from 0-9)
The next few commands are group commands.
The use of groups allows several boards, with the
same functions, to be controlled simultaneously
with a single command. These commands apply to
all cards, not only the MT110-102.
Example:
Group 5 consists of the cards located in slots
numbered 2, 4, and 6. Remove just cards 4 and
6 from the group by sending the command
[RMC4C6G1]. The system will return the
following feedback:
25. [WR]
This command groups multiple cards in the
enclosure allowing all the group members to be
controlled simultaneously with the same
command. Each MultiTasker™ unit may define
a maximum of eight groups.
[G5=C2]
27. [RMG]
This command may be used to delete an entire
group, or all groups.
In MultiTasker™ systems with audio and video
cards, boards are typically grouped as follows:
REMOVE A GROUP
Group 1 = Video Cards
Remove all the members from the group,
effectively deleting the group.
Group 2 = Audio Cards
Command Format: [RMGkUi]
Group 3 = Video and Audio Cards
Gk = Group ID (k = # from 1-8)
Ui = Unit ID (i = # from 0-9)

MULTITASKER™
Example:
Upon completion,
following:
Group 5 consists of the cards located in slots
number 2, 4 and 6. Remove all cards from the
group by sending the command [RMG5]. The
system will return the following feedback:
the system will display
Command Format: [TESTCn]
Cn = Card ID (n = # from 1 to 99)
Example:
[G5=0]
Remove all the members from every group,
effectively deleting all groups.
Test the internal memory of the MT110-102 in
slot 4 by sending the command [TESTC4]. The
card will respond with the feedback similar to
the following:
Command Format: [RMG*Ui]
MEMORY IS GOOD
Ui = Unit ID (i = # from 0-9)
Otherwise, failures would be indicated in the
feedback from the card.
REMOVE ALL GROUPS
Example:
30. [VLO] MT110-102 ONLY
Group 5 consists of cards 2, 4 and 6. Group 2
consists of cards 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Delete all the
groups by sending the command [RMG*].
This command sets the absolute volume level
for a given output.
The system will return the following feedback:
Command Format: [VLOmAvCnUi]
G1-G8:EMPTY
m
= Output (m = # from 1 to 8)
v
= Volume Level (v = # from 1 to 32)
28. [RD]
This command reads and then displays the
members in each group.
Cn = Card ID (n = # from 1 to max slots)
Command Format: [RDGkUi]
Example:
Gk = Group ID (k = # from 1-8)
There is an MT110-102 card in slot 8. Set the
output volume on Output 2 to 16 by sending the
command [VLO2A16C8].
Ui = Unit ID (i = # from 0 to 9)
Ui = Unit ID (i = # from 0-9)
Example:
31. [SEL] MT110-102 ONLY
The cards in slots 2, 4 and 6 are part of
group 5. Read the member data for group 5, by
sending the command [RDG5]. The system will
return feedback as follows:
This command is the output select command. It
sets the path to adjust the output volume level
for the current matrix. It is used in conjunction
with the [ + ] and [ - ] commands.
[G5=C2C4C6]
Command Format: [SELmCnUi]
The feedback shows G5 (group 5) and then the
cards that make up group 5. In this case,
group 5 includes C2, C4 and C6.
m
= Input No. (m = # from 1 to 16)
Cn = Engine Card Slot Number
29. [TEST]
Ui = Unit ID (i = # from 0 to 9)
This command performs a series of tests on the
internal memory of the card.
[+] = Increment level by one
[-] = Decrement level by one

MULTITASKER™
Example:
When defined as a volume control key, the key will
respond to two conditions: press and release.
Below, subroutine 8 starts ramping up when key 8
is pressed. Subroutine 10 starts ramping down
when key 10 is pressed. Subroutine 108 stops
ramping when either key is released.
There is an MT110-102 card in slot 8. Adjust the
volume level on Output 2. The current level is
set to 10. After sending the following
commands, a better level of 15 is obtained:
1.
[SEL2C8]
The current output level is 10.
2.
[-][-][-]
The level is now 7 and is too low.
3.
[+][+][+][+][+][+][+][+]
The level is now 15 and no further
adjustments are required.
Since there are multiple outputs on this card, the
output to ramp must first be selected using the
[SEL] command. For example, send [SEL2C4] and
then [RDNC4] to ramp down the volume level on
Output 2 of C4. Then, send the [SEL2C4] and
[RUPC4] commands to ramp the level back up.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Cause 2:
8
We have carefully tested and have found no
problems in the supplied MT110-100/102; however,
we would like to offer suggestions for the following:
Solution 1: Turn the system off and then on
again. If there is still an error, see
Cause 3.
8.1 LED IS NOT LIT
Cause 1:
Card cage is not plugged in.
Solution:
Plug card cage in. If the LED lights,
the problem is solved. If the LED is
still not ON, see Cause 2.
Cause 2:
Card is not plugged in all the way.
Solution:
Push the card in all the way. If the
LED is still not ON, see Cause 3.
Cause 3:
Cause 3:
Solution 2: Turn the system off and then on
again. If there is still an error, see
Solution 3.
Solution 3: Call ALTINEX at (714) 990-2300.
Card cage slot has a problem.
8.3. NO SOUND
Solution 2: Take any other known good card
with an LED and verify that the slot
used is good by seeing if the other
card’s LED lights in that slot. If it
lights, then the original card may be
the source of the problem. Call
ALTINEX at (714) 990-2300.
Cause 1:
The source has a problem.
Solution:
Check the source and make sure
that it is working at an appropriate
volume level and all source
connections are correct. If the
source is working and there is still
no sound, see Cause 2.
Cause 2:
The proper input card may not be
selected.
Solution:
Select the card input that is used, by
RS-232 accessible commands in
section 7. If no sound is present,
see Cause 3.
Cause 3:
Cable
connections
to
destination are incorrect.
Solution:
Make sure that cables are
connected properly. Also, make sure
that the continuity and wiring are
good. If there is still no sound
present, see Cause 4.
Cause 4:
The destination amplifier has a
problem.
8.2 LED IS BLINKING RED
The CPU on the card is not
working properly.
Solution 1: Look at the card and verify that
there is no damage. If there is no
damage, see Solution 2.
Solution 2: Verify that all ICs are seated in their
sockets. If the LED is still blinking
red, see Cause 2.
400-0132-005
RS485 communication error
Solution 1: Make sure that the card is pushed
all the way into the slot. If there is
still an error, see Solution 2.
Solution 1: Test the card in other slots of the
card cage. If the slot was damaged,
the card may work in other slots. If
other slots work and the LED lights,
the problem is the card cage slot.
The card cage may require service.
Call ALTINEX at (714) 990-2300. If
the other slots do not work and the
LED is still not lit, see Solution 2.
Cause 1:
The card and its serial device are
not communicating.
