The SKP 2000 plug-on transmitter
The SKP 2000 plug-on transmitter
This plug-on transmitter is part of the 2000 series. With this series,
Sennheiser offers high-quality state-of-the-art RF transmission systems
with a high level of operational reliability and ease of use. Transmitters
and receivers permit wireless transmission with studio-quality sound.
Features of the 2000 series:
• Optimized PLL synthesizer and microprocessor technology
• HDX noise reduction system
• Pilot tone squelch control
• Switching bandwidth of up to 75 MHz
• Increased immunity to intermodulation and interferences in
multi-channel operation
Areas of application
The plug-on transmitter can be combined with the EK 2000 portable
receiver and the EM 2000 and EM 2050 rack-mount receivers. These
receivers are available in the same UHF frequency ranges and are equipped
with the same frequency bank system. This has the advantage that
• a transmission system is ready for immediate use after switch-on,
• several transmission systems can be operated simultaneously on the
preset frequencies without causing intermodulation interference.

The SKP 2000 plug-on transmitter
The frequency bank system
The plug-on transmitter is available in 5 UHF frequency ranges with up to
3,000 transmission frequencies per frequency range:
Range Aw:
516 – 558
500
Range Gw:
558 – 626
600
Range Bw:
626 – 698
Range Cw:
718 – 790
700
Range Dw:
790 – 865
800
Each frequency range (Aw-Dw, Gw) offers 26 frequency banks with up to
64 channels each:
Channel 1 – frequency preset
Channel 2 – frequency preset
Frequency bank 1 ... 20
Channel 64 – frequency preset
Channel 1 – freely selectable frequency
Channel 2 – freely selectable frequency
Frequency bank U1 ... U6
Channel 64 – freely selectable frequency
Each of the channels in the frequency banks “1” to “20” has been factorypreset to a fixed frequency (frequency preset). The factory-preset
frequencies within one frequency bank are intermodulation-free. These
frequencies cannot be changed.
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 SKP 2000 product page on
our website at www.sennheiser.com.
The frequency banks “U1” to “U6” allow you to freely select and store
frequencies. It might be that these frequencies are not intermodulationfree.

Inserting the batteries/accupack
For powering the plug-on transmitter, you can either use two 1.5 V AA size
batteries or the rechargeable Sennheiser BA 2015 accupack (see
“Accessories” on page 30).
왘 Slide the battery compartment cover 쐈 in the direction of the
embossed arrow and open the cover 쐈.
쐈
왘 Insert the two batteries or the accupack as shown below. Please
observe correct polarity when inserting the batteries/accupack.
쐈
왘 Close the battery compartment.
The battery compartment cover 쐈 locks into place with an audible
click.

Putting the plug-on transmitter into operation
Charging the accupack
왘 Remove the BA 2015 accupack.
왘 Insert the BA 2015 accupack into the L 2015 charger (see
“Accessories” on page 30).
The L 2015 charger can only charge the BA 2015 accupack.
Standard batteries (primary cells) or individual rechargeable
battery cells cannot be charged.
Plugging the plug-on transmitter onto a microphone
왘 Plug the microphone’s XLR-3M socket onto the transmitter’s XLR-3F
socket 쐃. Make sure that the latch 쐉 locks into place.
쐃
쐉
쐇
왘 Tighten the locking ring 쐇 in the direction of the arrow.
The transmitter uses the microphone body as an antenna –
therefore microphones with a metal casing should be used for
best signal transmission.

identify the signal of the matching transmitter and mute all others. The
pilot tone supports the receiver’s squelch function.

Synchronizing the plug-on transmitter with a receiver
Synchronizing the plug-on transmitter
with a receiver
When synchronizing the plug-on transmitter with a receiver, please
observe the following:
왘 Only use a plug-on transmitter and a receiver from the same
frequency range (see the type plates 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 plug-on transmitter with the
receiver – individual operation
Upon delivery, the plug-on transmitter and the receiver are synchronized
with each other. If, however, you cannot establish a transmission link
between plug-on transmitter and receiver, you have to synchronize the
channels of the devices.
For information on automatic synchronization of the plug-on 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 plug-on transmitter
manually:
왘 Make sure that you set the plug-on transmitter to the same frequency
bank and the same channel as the receiver (see page 20).
If you still cannot establish a transmission link, refer to the chapter “If a
problem occurs ...” on page 29.
26
Cleaning the plug-on transmitter
Synchronizing plug-on transmitters with receivers –
multi-channel operation
Combined with 2000 series receivers, 2000 series plug-on transmitters
can form transmission links that can be used in multi-channel systems.
For information on automatic synchronization of plug-on transmitters
with receivers (multi-channel operation), refer to the instruction manual
of your receiver.
For more information on multi-channel operation, visit the SKP 2000
product page at www.sennheiser.com.
Cleaning the plug-on transmitter
CAUTION!
Liquids can damage the electronics of the plug-on
transmitter!
Liquids entering the housing of the device can cause a
short-circuit and damage the electronics.
왘 Keep all liquids away from the plug-on transmitter.
왘 Do not use any solvents or cleansing agents.
왘 Use a cloth to clean the plug-on transmitter from time to time.

Recommendations and tips
Recommendations and tips
... for the plug-on transmitter
• 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 plug-on transmitter and receiving antennas.
• To avoid overloading the receiver, observe a minimum distance of 5 m
between plug-on transmitter and receiving antennas.
• The plug-on transmitter uses the microphone body as an antenna –
therefore microphones with a metal casing should be used for best
signal transmission.
... for multi-channel operation
• When operating a multi-channel system, you should only use the
channels within one frequency bank. Each of the frequency banks “1”
to “20” accommodates factory-preset 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.
