  3. Press ENTER to accept the group number and automatically assign the next best channel to each receiver on the network. The receiver LEDs will flash when a frequency has been assigned.
  4. Turn on a transmitter and sync to the receiver.

    Important! Leave the transmitter on and repeat this step for each additional system.

Non-networked Receivers

  1. Turn on all receivers.
  2. Conduct a group scan on the first receiver to find available frequencies in each group: SCAN > SCAN > GROUP SCAN > SCAN
  3. When the scan is complete, use the control wheel to scroll through each group. Press ENTER to select a group that has enough available frequencies for all channels in the system.
  4. Sync a transmitter to each receiver channel.

Important! Leave all transmitters on use the following steps to set up additional receiver channels:

  1. Set each additional receiver channel to the same group as the first receiver: RADIO > G:
  2. Conduct a channel scan to find available frequencies within the group: SCAN > SCAN > CHANNEL SCAN > SCAN
  3. When the scan is complete, press ENTER to assign frequencies to each receiver channel.
  4. Sync a transmitter to each receiver channel.

Manual Frequency Selection

To manually adjust group, channel or frequency:

  1. Select RADIO from the receiver menu.
  2. Use the control wheel to select and adjust the group, channel, or frequency.
  3. Press ENTER to save.

Transmitter IR Presets

Use the IR PRESETS receiver menu to quickly configure transmitter settings from the receiver screen. When a sync is performed between the receiver and transmitter, the IR PRESETs automatically configure the transmitter. Each parameter has the default value KEEP, which leaves that setting unaffected by a sync.

Feature Setting
BP PAD +0 dB, -12 dB
LOCK Power, Menu, All, None
RF POWER 10mW=Nm (normal), 1mW=Lo (low), 20mW=Hi (high)
BATT Alkaline, NiMH, Lithium
BP OFFSET 0 dB to +21 dB (in 3 dB increments)
HH OFFSET 0 dB to +21 dB (in 3 dB increments)
MUTE MODE OFF, ON
Cust. Group OFF, ON

Note: When Cust. Groups is set to on, it may take up to 30 seconds to complete an IR sync.

Creating a System Preset

System Presets allow a current receiver setup to be saved and restored. Presets store all receiver settings to provide a quick way to configure a receiver or switch between several different setups. Up to 4 presets can be stored in receiver memory.

To save the current receiver setup as a new preset: DEVICE UTILITIES > SYSTEM RESET > SAVE > CREATE NEW PRESET

Use the control wheel to name the preset, and then press Enter to save.

To recall a saved preset: DEVICE UTILITIES > SYSTEM RESET > RESTORE

Use the control wheel to select the preset name, and then press Enter.

RF

Transmitter RF Power

Reference the following table for setting RF Power:

RF Power Setting System Range Application
1 mW 33 m (100 ft.) For increased channel reuse at close distances
10 mW 100 m (330 ft.) Typical setups
20 mW >100 m (330 ft.) For hostile RF environments or long-distance applications

Note: Using the 20 mW setting decreases the transmitter battery runtime and reduces the number of compatible systems.

Interference Detection

Interference Detection monitors the RF environment for potential sources of interference which can cause audio dropouts.

When interference is identified, the RF LEDs illuminate red and the following warning displays on the receiver LCD panel.

If the warning display persists or the audio drops out repeatedly, perform a Scan and Sync at the first opportunity to find a clear frequency.

Advanced RF

RF Mute

Use this to turn on a transmitter without interfering with the RF spectrum.

Press and hold the exit button during power-on until RF MUTED is displayed. To un-mute, restart the transmitter.

Custom Groups

Use this feature to create up to six groups of manually selected frequencies that can be exported to networked receivers to simplify system setup.

To create a custom group: UTILITES > ADVANCED RF > CUSTOM GROUPS

Note: Use Wireless Workbench or Wireless Frequency Finder to select the best compatible frequencies. See www.shure.com for more information.

To export a custom group:

  1. Go to UTILITES > ADVANCED RF > CUSTOM GROUPS > EXPORT . The following screen will display.
  2. Press the flashing ENTER button to export all custom groups to all receivers on the network.

Antenna Bias

Antenna ports A and B provide a DC bias to power active antennas. Set the DC power to off when using passive (non-powered) antennas.

To turn bias off: DEVICE UTILITIES > ADVANCED RF > ANTENNA BIAS > OFF

Networking Receivers

The receiver uses an Ethernet connection to network with other components. For automatic network configuration, use a DHCP enabled Ethernet switch such as the Shure AXT620. Use multiple Ethernet switches to extend the network for larger installations.

Note: Note use only one DHCP server per network.

Automatic IP Addressing

Set the IP Mode to Automatic for all receivers: DEVICE UTILITIES > NETWORK > CTRL NETWORK

Manual IP Addressing

  1. Connect the receivers to an Ethernet switch.
  2. Set the IP Mode to Manual for all devices ( DEVICE UTILITIES > NETWORK > CTRL NETWORK )
  3. Set valid IP addresses for all devices.
  4. Set the subnet mask to the same value for all devices.

Troubleshooting

  • Use only one DHCP server per network
  • All devices must share the same subnet mask
  • All receivers must have the same level of firmware revision installed
  • Look for the illuminated network icon on the front panel of each device:

    If the icon is not illuminated, check the cable connection and the LEDs on the network jack.

    If the LEDs are not on and the cable is plugged in, replace the cable and recheck the LEDs and network icon.

To check connectivity of WWB6 to the network:

  1. Start WWB6 software and use Inventory view to see devices connected to the network.
  2. If not, find the IP address from one of the devices on the network (such as an ULXD receiver) and see if you can ping it from the computer running WWB6.
  3. From a WINDOWS/MAC command prompt, type ‘ping IPADDRESS’ of the device (e.g. "ping 192.168.1.100").
  4. If the ping returns success (no packet loss), then the computer can see the device on the network. If the ping returns failure (100% packet loss), then check the IP address of the computer to ensure it’s on the same subnet as the Axient device.
  5. If the pings are successful and the devices still do not show up in the WWB6 inventory, check to ensure all firewalls are either disabled or allow the WWB network traffic to pass to the application. Check that firewall settings are not blocking network access.

Device ID

Set the receiver Device ID for easy identification within the network or in Wireless Workbench: DEVICE UTILITIES > NETWORK > SHURE CONTROL > Dev.ID

Use the control wheel to edit the device ID.

High Density Mode

High Density mode creates additional bandwidth for more channels in crowded RF environments. Frequency efficiency is optimized by running at 1 mW RF transmit power and narrowing the modulation bandwidth, allowing for the channel spacing to be reduced from 350 kHz to 125 kHz. Transmitters can be positioned on adjacent channels with unsubstantial intermodulation distortion (IMD).

High Density mode is ideal for applications where many channels are needed in a confined area, transmission distances are short, and the number of available frequencies is limited. Up to 30 meters of range is available in High Density mode.

Setting the Receiver to High Density Mode

To set the receiver to High Density mode:

DEVICE UTILITIES > ADVANCED RF > HIGH DENSITY

Use the control wheel to set HIGH DENSITY to ON.

When prompted, sync the transmitter and receiver to enable HIGH DENSITY mode.

Note: When the receiver is in HIGH DENSITY mode, the following indicators are shown on the receiver display:

  • The HD icon will appear on the receiver display
  • The receiver band name will be shown with an "HD" added. (example: The G50 band will appear as G50HD)
  • The transmitter group and channel are assigned letters instead of numbers (example: G:AA CH:AA)

Best Practices for High Density Mode

  • When band planning, position ULX-D High Density channels in a range of frequencies separated from other devices.
  • Use a separate RF zone for ULX-D High Density channels to prevent intermodulation distortion from other devices.
  • During High Density channel scanning, turn on all other transmitters and move them to their intended position.
  • Perform a walk test to verify transmitter range
  • If using custom groups, the groups loaded into the receiver must be compatible with High Density mode

System Reset

System Reset clears the current receiver settings and restores the factory default settings.

To restore factory default settings:

  1. Go to DEVICE UTILITIES > SYSTEM RESET > RESTORE .
  2. Scroll to the DEFAULT SETTINGS option and press ENTER.
  3. Press the flashing ENTER button to return the receiver to the default settings.

Firmware

Firmware is embedded software in each component that controls functionality. Periodically, new versions of firmware are developed to incorporate additional features and enhancements. To take advantage of design improvements, new versions of the firmware can be uploaded and installed using the Firmware Update Manager tool available in Shure's Wireless Workbench® 6 (WWB6) software. Software is available for download from http://www.shure.com/wwb.

Firmware Versioning

When updating receiver firmware, update transmitters to the same firmware version to ensure consistent operation.

The firmware of all ULX-D devices has the form of MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH (e.g., 1.2.14). At a minimum, all ULX-D devices on the network (including transmitters), must have the same MAJOR and MINOR firmware version numbers (e.g., 1.2.x).

Updating the Receiver

CAUTION! Ensure that receiver power and network connections are maintained during a firmware update. Do not turn off the receiver until the update is complete.

Once the download is complete, the receiver automatically begins the firmware update, which overwrites the existing firmware.

  1. From Shure Wireless Workbench software, open the Firmware Update Manager: Tools > Firmware Update Manager .
  2. Click Check Now to view new versions available for download.
  3. Select the updates and click download.
  4. Connect the receiver and computer to the same network.
  5. Download the latest firmware to the receiver.

Updating the Transmitter

  1. To upload the firmware to the transmitter, go to DEVICE UTILITIES > TX FW UPDATE on the receiver.
  2. Place the transmitter on its side and align the IR ports.
  3. Press ENTER on the receiver to begin the download to the transmitter. IR ports must be aligned for the entire download, which can take 50 seconds or longer.

Managing the ULXD Receiver with Wireless Workbench 6

Hardware Identify is a useful feature for remotely discovering and identifying networked components that appear in WWB6 inventory. For example, individual receivers located on a stage can be identified remotely in the WWB6 inventory window by pressing the control wheel on the receiver. When the control wheel is pressed, the corresponding receiver icon in WWB6 will flash to identify the location of the receiver.

Troubleshooting

Issue See Solution...
No Sound Power, Cables, or RF
Faint sound or distortion Gain
Lack of range, unwanted noise bursts, or dropouts RF
Cannot turn transmitter off or change frequency settings, or can't program receiver Interface locks
Encryption error message Encryption Mismatch

Power

Make sure that the receiver and transmitter are receiving sufficient voltage. Use the 15 V DC power supply furnished with the ULXD4 receiver. Check the battery indicators and replace the transmitter batteries if necessary.

Gain

Adjust the system gain on the front of the receiver. Ensure the output level (XLR output only) on the back of the receiver corresponds to the input of the mixing console, amplifier, or DSP.

Cables

Check that all cables and connectors are working correctly.

Interface Locks

The transmitter and the receiver can be locked to prevent accidental or unauthorized changes. A locked feature or button will produce the Locked screen on the LCD panel.

Encryption Mismatch

Re-sync the receiver and transmitter after enabling or disabling encryption.

Radio Frequency (RF)

RF LEDs

If neither blue RF Diversity LED is illuminated, then the receiver is not detecting the presence of a transmitter.

The amber RF Signal Strength LEDs indicate the amount of signal being received. This signal could be from the transmitter, or it could be from an interfering source, such as a television broadcast. If more than one or two of the amber RF LEDs are still illuminated while the transmitter is off, then that channel has too much interference, and you should try a different channel.

The red RF LED indicates RF overload. This will usually not cause a problem unless you are using more than one system at the same time, in which case, it can cause interference in the other system.

Compatibility

  • Perform a Scan and Sync to ensure the transmitter and receiver are set to the same group and channel.
  • Look at the label on the transmitter and receiver to make sure they are in the same band (G50, J50, L50, etc...).

Reducing Interference

  • Perform a group or channel scan to find the best open frequency. Perform a sync to transfer the setting to the transmitter.
  • For multiple systems, check that all systems are set to channels in the same group (systems in different bands do not need to be set to the same group).
  • Maintain a line of sight between transmitter and receiver antennas.
  • Move receiver antennas away from metal objects or other sources of RF interference (such as CD players, computers, digital effects, network switches, network cables and Personal Stereo Monitor (PSM) wireless systems).
  • Eliminate RF overload (see below).

Increasing Range

If the transmitter is more than 6 to 60 m (20 to 200 ft) from the receiver antenna, you may be able to increase range by doing one of the following:

  • Reduce interference (see above).
  • Increase transmitter RF power level.
  • Use an active directional antenna, antenna distribution system, or other antenna accessory to increase RF range.

Eliminating RF Overload

If you see the red RF LED on a receiver, try the following:

  • Reduce the transmitter RF power level
  • Move the transmitter further away from the receiver—at least 6 m (20 ft)
  • If you are using active antennas, reduce antenna or amplifier gain.
  • Use omnidirectional antennas
