Environmental Conditions for the RM2200D

December 14th, 2016||

In the following you can find general information on the environmental conditions for an RM2200D. If the standard is not met, DHD cannot ensure the proper functionality of the device. Operating temperature: +5 ... +35 ° Celsius Relative air humidity: 20 ... 85 %, not condensing As for the mounting in a 19" rack, you need to leave at least one height unit (44 mm) of space above and below [...]

Is it possible to represent more than 4 ASCII characters in the fader channel display?

December 14th, 2016||

Every RM220-020D Fader Module of the RM2200D has a "4-character ASCII display" for each channel. Modules with a larger number of ASCII characters for each fader channel are neither available, nor planned or feasible for the RM2200D. Nevertheless, it is possible to define channel names with up to 16 characters in the PC software. The PC software shows up to 16 characters, depending on the number of faders and the [...]

What can I set via the Analog Control Inputs (ACIs) of the RM220-122 module?

December 14th, 2016||

Apart from the audio inputs and outputs and GPIOs, the RM220-122 module of the RM2200D also provides two analog control inputs (ACIs). You can connect potentiometers directly to the ACIs to control the output level of the headphone outputs on the same module. It is not possible to use these ACIs to control other functions.

Information on Configuring Fader Channel Delay

December 14th, 2016||

If an RM2200D DSP Frame is equipped with an RM220-951 Controller, the delay option can be used for all fader channels of the connected console. The number of delay channels has to be defined in the configuration software. It is recommended to configure the number of delay channels to be identical or higher than the number of connected fader strips. Please find the necessary assignment in the table below: Number [...]

How to enable Windows users without administrative rights to use the DHD Communication Server

December 14th, 2016||

Every DHD software application which exchanges data with a device or a software, needs the DHD Communication Server (DHDCS) for this communication. This software administrates the entire communication between DHD systems in the network and the related applications on the PC. Each DHD application in the following list contains an entity of the DHDCS, which is extracted on the start of the application, in case no DHDCS or an older [...]

Emulate analog and digital peak program meters

December 14th, 2016||

You can set the properties of the peak program meters of the TFT displays with the aid of the Toolbox4 / Toolbox5 configuration software. Choose the according device in the project tree of the Toolbox, open the sub-branches of the "Logic System" entry and select "Level Detection". Please enter the following values to emulate an analog peak program meter with an integration time of 10 ms, according to the standards [...]

Why are the filter settings of the DHDCS logging not saved?

December 14th, 2016||

The DHD Communication Server (DHDCS) does not save the filter settings (DHDCS > "Options" menu > "Filter Settings" tab). That means, after restarting the DHDCS all filter options are deselected. This is done for security reasons, so that possibly occurring error messages and other important messages will not be suppressed permanently.

Calibrating RM4200D fader modules

December 14th, 2016||

The faders (Penny & Giles PGFM3200/-/M/-/E/I/Z/X, Specification D460667) of the modules RM420-020MW and RM420-029MW need to be calibrated. This is already done by DHD during the manufacturing process. Calibrating is especially important after changing the faders of the modules RM420-020M and RM420-029M from "plastic" faders (Penny & Giles PGFM8100/D/M/----/F, Specification D468105) to "metal" faders (Penny & Giles PGFM3200/-/M/-/E/I/Z/X, Specification D460667). Proceed as follows for calibration of the fader modules: Move [...]

Connecting a TFT Display to an RM4200D after Updating it to the Series 52 Firmware Generation

December 14th, 2016||

If you update your RM4200D to the Series 52 firmware generation, it is necessary to exchange the Communication Controller. Instead of the RM420-850, you need an RM420-852/853 controller module. If your console contains a TFT display, you need to rewire it after the controller exchange. The following diagram shows the conventional wiring of the TFT screen of an RM4200D console equipped with an RM420-850 Communication Controller. Click on the diagram [...]
