Chapter 1

Introduction
Overview
The ADC6800+A4BC Analog-to-Digital Converters with Delay handle four-channel A-to-D conversion applications. The ADS6800+A4BC modules are audio delay synchronizers that are often used for solving timing problems within a facility (for example, integrating a non-synchronous digital island or compensating for fixed or variable path delays). For added audio capabilities such as audio-tracking delay and hot-switching, you can use ADS6800+A4BC in combination with other 6800+ product modules (such as the DES6800+, ENS6800+, and VFS6800+). The ADS6800+A4BC module handles four-channel applications. The following topics are described in this chapter: Product Description on page 2 Module Descriptions on page 4 Signal Flow on page 7

ADC6800+A4BC and ADS6800+A4BC Installation and Operation Manual

Chapter 1: Introduction

Product Description
General Description
ADC6800+A4BC and ADS6800+A4BC modules provide four balanced analog audio channel inputs, two AES unbalanced (coax) audio outputs, and two AES balanced audio outputs. They also provide a balanced and unbalanced DARS reference input. ADC/ADS6800+A4BC modules can be controlled locally (via card edge) or controlled and monitored remotely with CCS software applications such as +PilotLite, Pilot, and Navigator, or CCS-compliant remote control panels and products. The back connectors for ADC/ADS6800+A4BC modules require two frame slots within a frame, and provide for balanced and unbalanced connections. ADS6800+A4BC modules accept audio tracking delay and a hot-switching signal from 6800+ video modules with synchronizers (DES6800+, ENS6800+, and VFS6800+).

Typical Broadcast and Production Applications


Broadcast and production facilities can use ADS6800+A4BC modules to solve audio sampling delay and synchronization problems. The insertion of a fixed and variable delay will ensure proper synchronization between picture and sound. ADS6800+A4BC modules can also be used for accurate audio tracking. They track the timing signal generated by various cards (DES6800+, ENS6800+, and VFS6800+), thereby increasing the 6800+ system capability.

Upgrading Module Firmware


Note
Firmware for the ADS6800+ must be updated in Boot Loader mode.

Firmware upgrading is a routine procedure that you must perform to install newer versions of software on 6800+ modules. Pilot, Co-Pilot, or Navigator software version 3.1.1 or later is required for this procedure. The frame must contain or be connected to another frame that contains an ICE6800+ module. When performing the upgrading procedure, check the appropriate readme file to confirm which files are needed. Use care to ensure that you upload the correct files to the intended module. In the unlikely event that the upgrade fails, the module may not respond to controls and will appear to be non-functional. In that event, follow the procedures described in Correcting a Failed Upgrade Procedure on page 25.

Upgrading the Firmware in Boot Loader Mode


Upgrading the Firmware Using the Discovery Method Follow these steps to upgrade a modules firmware: 1. Download the most recent appropriate upgrade package from our Web site or from your CD-ROM. 2. Remove the module from the 6800+ frame.

Chapter 3: Operation

Operating Notes
When setting the control parameters on the ADC/ADS6800+A4BC, observe the following: When you change a parameter, the effect is immediate. However, the module requires up to 20 seconds to save the latest change. After 20 seconds, the new settings are saved and will be restored if the module loses power and must be restarted. You can connect up to four ADS6800+A4BC modules to a single data I/O chain using a maximum cable length of 984 ft (300 m). T-connectors are recommended. When reference video is applied to the module, expect a momentary audio disruption due to the locking process. For AES11 compliance in 525 mode, the ADC6800+A4BC and ADS6800+A4BC modules require the presence of a DARS signal locked to the reference video. Ensure that the DARS input on the back connector (either balanced or unbalanced) is connected to the appropriate source. A DARS signal is not required for AES11 compliance in 625 mode. Note the following Tone frequencies: Tone 1: 750 Hz Tone 2: 1500 Hz Tone 3: 3000 Hz Tone 4: 6000 Hz

Delay control is not applicable when a tone is selected as a source for an output channel. To achieve AES11 compliance, you must select only valid Lock Mode and Lock Source parameter options. Valid parameters for Lock Mode are Delay and Sync. Valid parameters for Lock Source are DARS and Genlock w/ DARS.

Note
Before you select Genlock w/DARS, both the Genlock and DARS signals must be locked together.

If you select Freerun as the Lock Mode, or Genlock as the Lock Source, you will not achieve AES11 compliance. See Bank 0 on page 32 to select Lock Mode and Lock Source.

Chapter 3: Operation

The LED display mode (selected in Bank 3) is not saved through power cycles like other parameters. The module always powers up to display General Status. See Bank 3 on page 36 to select an LED display mode.

Analog Audio Input Level Offset


The ADC6800+A4BC and ADS6800+A4BC can amplify all analog inputs simultaneously using the IP Level Offset parameter. This allows you to achieve additional analog audio input levels beyond what can be achieved using the analog level jumpers (see Setting Channel Analog Input Level Jumpers on page 17). This input level adjustment is achieved by the IP Level Offset parameter, which has a range of 0 to 5.0 dB in 1.0 dB steps. For example, to set an analog input level of +15 dBu for a digital input audio level of 0 dBFS, you can use a combination of analog audio level jumper settings and adjustment of the IP Level Offset parameter. The following steps sets the analog audio level input to +15 dBu. 1. Set jumpers A, B, and C to set the analog audio input level to +16 dBu (Setting Channel Analog Input Level Jumpers on page 17). For this setting, refer to Table 2-4 on page 17. 2. Adjust the IP Level Offset parameter to 1.0 dB. Use either a remote control application (e.g. +PilotLite, Pilot or Navigator) or card-edge control to adjust the parameter to this setting. The combination of these two settings will set the audio input level to +15 dBu for analog audio inputs and 0 dBFS for digital audio inputs.

Channel Summing (Creating a Monaural Signal)


If you select select In 1 Sum or In 2 Sum as the source for the Output Ch1A/1B/2A/2B Source parameters, the result is the sum of the two parts of the channel divided by two (the mean average). For example, In 1 Sum = (In 1A + In 1B) 2 Therefore, the stereo signal is averaged, creating a monaural signal.

Recalling Default Parameter Settings


Table 3-2 on page 32 describes all of the parameter settings for the ADC/ADS6800+A4BC modules, including the original factory defaults. To return these modules to their default settings, you can either reset each parameter individually or do a global recall following this procedure: 1. Rotate the hex switch to 0. 2. Toggle the navigation switch to the bank number 0. Use the control LEDs to verify which bank you have selected, or use an available 6800+ software control option (serial/local or Ethernet/remote) to aid in confirming your bank selection. 3. Rotate the hex switch to the global recall parameter F. 4. Toggle the navigation switch to On. Use an available 6800+ software control option to aid in viewing, setting, and confirming the parameter value.

Module Status LEDs


The ADC/ADS6800+ modules do not have any card-edge alarms. Instead, module status LEDs on the corner of the module light up if an error is detected. See Figure 3-1 on page 39 for the location of these LEDs, and Table 3-6 for a definition of the LED colors.

Table 3-6. Module Status LED Descriptions LED Color Sequence


Off Green Red Flashing red Amber

Meaning
There is no power to the module; the module is not operational. There is power to the module; the module is operating properly. There is an alarm condition. The module has detected a hardware/firmware fault. The module is undergoing configuration.

Alarms
The tables below describe the specific alarms for ADC6800+A4BC and ADS6800+A4BC modules. You can only identify specific alarms using a CCS software application (for example, +Pilot Lite or Pilot) or CCS-enabled control panel.

ADC6800+A4BC and ADS6800+A4BC Installation and Operation Manual

Appendix A: Troubleshooting Tips

Common Problems and Suspected Failures


+Pilot Lite Fails to Communicate with Installed Modules
Confirm that the following items are not the reason for the communication failure: Proper module slot has not been specified (+Pilot Lite is not communicating with the appropriate slot). See your FR6802+ Frame Installation and Operation Manual for more information on slot identification. COM port is used elsewhere (+Pilot Lite is not communicating with the correct COM port). Actual Slot ID and Frame ID do not match with the two DIP switch settings in back of frame (+Pilot Lite is not communicating with the appropriate slot and frame). See your FR6802+ Frame Installation and Operation Manual for more information on Slot ID and Frame ID DIP switch settings. ICE6800+ module is installed in the frame (+Pilot Lite control is disabled if an ICE6800+ module is installed in the frame; ICE6800+ modules are used for CCS control).

+Pilot Lite Does Not Find All Modules in Frame


If a discovery is started too soon after frame power-up, +Pilot Lite will not find all the installed modules. Refresh +Pilot Lite (File > Refresh), and ensure that installed modules are fully powered-up first before discovery.

+Pilot Lite or CCS Software Application Not Responding


+Pilot Lite and CCS applications cannot run on the same PC at the same time. Both applications can be installed, but only one can be opened at a time.

ADC6800+A4BC and ADS6800+A4BC Installation and Operation Manual

53

Appendix A: Troubleshooting Tips

+Pilot Lite Cannot Control a Module Showing in the Control Window


Consider these questions: Did you physically configure the module for local control? If so, configure the device for remote control. Is the module properly seated in the frame? Check the positioning of the module in its slot in the frame. Does the Control window indicate the device is ready? The device may be powered off or disconnected from the network.

+Pilot Lite Status Bar Reports Not Ready


+Pilot Lite reports each devices connection status in the status bar. If the connection status message reads Not Ready, check the following: Is the module properly seated in the frame? Check the position of the module in the frame. Is the frame connected to the network? Check the devices network connection.

If the status bar still reports no status or Not Ready for the frame or device, try restarting +Pilot Lite.

CCS Software Application or Remote Control Panel Does Not Communicate with Module
CCS software applications (such as Pilot, CoPilot, and Navigator) and remote control panels require the purchase and installation of an ICE6800+ module in an FR6802+ frame in order to communicate remotely via Ethernet.

Alarm Query Fails When a Device Reboots


When you reboot a device connected to your PC, the alarm traffic hitting the network may cause an alarm query request to time out and fail. While the query does not automatically retry, it will post an Alarm query failed message to the Diagnostics window. To clear an Alarm query failed message, right-click inside the Diagnostics window, and then select Refresh from the resulting context menu.

Appendix A: Troubleshooting Tips

Frames Fail to Communicate with the PC after a Power Failure


Have you exited the software application and restarted the PC since the frame recovered from its power failure? To restore communications between the PC and the frames, ensure that the frames have three or more minutes to recover from the power failure before you exit the application and restart the PC.

Module Does Not Seem to Work


Although the following troubleshooting tips may seem obvious, please take the time to ensure the following: All appropriate rear connections are securely made. The board is securely installed (with no bent pins). The frame is turned on.
