MP 44 Mixer Use
The MP 44’s REMOTE LEVEL port provides a means to control the level of the MASTER mix from a remote location. The range of control is 0 dB to -40 dB. Applications include ‘gain riding’ DJs, setting a comfortable listening level from a remote location and reducing the maximum available gain.
DA 26S Distribution Processor Use
A port for a wired Remote Level control is provided for each of the six Outputs. Using the optional VR 1 Remote control provides an audio taper response from 0 dB to > -80 dB. To control more than one Remote Port with a single Remote control, it is only necessary to connect the Vc pin of each additional port.
CP 52S or CP 64S Commercial Processor Use
Simply wire the Vc, Vr and ground wires of the ZONE REMOTE LEVEL port. The range of control is 0 dB to -40 dB.
Turn the power to the unit off until all connections are made. It is important to ensure that the Remote Ports are not subjected to sustained voltages outside the range of 0 to 5 VDC or high levels of static. Inputs are protected, however, caution is the better part of … you know. It is a good idea to install the wiring, connect it to the Remote and then make the final connections at the Remote Port.
Do not short the Vr pin to ground. This pin is current limited; however, excess heat is generated in the 5 V supply if a short occurs. Never subject the Vr pin to voltages above 5 V.
Variations in wire type do not greatly affect the performance of the remote controls. However, 22-gauge stranded wire with a flexible jacket is recommended. You may use 3-conductor unshielded remote control signal cable for shorter runs (less than 200 ft.) or 2-conductor (1 pair) shielded remote control signal cable (use the shield as the GND return) for longer runs (200 to 1000 ft.). The type of wire required is influenced by your installation and local electrical codes.
