Rear Panel Kits

One of the major advantages of the slot-in receiver form factor is that they can be configured for multiple applications, including insertion into a camera or multi-coupler device, or for standalone use where power is provided by a battery distribution system (BDS) or battery sled. The rear panels manage power input, audio output, and data transfer between mating devices (e.g. cameras, multi-couplers, etc.). The spacer plates facilitate mounting in cameras, SuperSlot and UniSlot® multi-couplers, and audio bag organizer plates, as each of these devices have different dimensions and clearances for slot-in receivers.

Attaching the Backplate

Align the captive Phillips screws with the threaded holes on the back of the ADX5D receiver and slide the backplate into place. Tighten screws to ensure a solid connection.

TIP: Backplates only align one way. You don't need to force it into place.

TA3 Backplate

The TA3 Backplate for ADX5D is designed to accommodate power input from an external source, audio output for the receiver, and optional interfacing with compatible battery sleds. The panel includes a 4-pin connector for mating with the battery sled, two TA3 (mini 3-pin XLR) audio output connectors, a 4-pin locking Hirose power input connector, and captive Phillips-head screws to mount/unmount the rear panel.

When connected, output 1 can be configured for analog or AES3 output in the device menu. Analog output 2 is disabled when AES3 is selected.

Since the receiver doesn't need to mate with an external device while being used with the standalone rear panel, a spacer plate is not required or included with the rear panel.

Connectors are (from left to right): 4-pin battery sled power input, TA3 audio outputs 1 and 2, and Hirose 4-pin power input.

Connecting a Power Supply

Connect a compatible 6-18V power supply to the power input.

CAUTION: Always attach backplate to receiver before connecting power supply.

The TA3 backplate with a power supply connected

Battery Sled

Battery sleds must be used with the standalone rear panel, as this panel includes the 4-pin connector required for the two components to mate and pass power. The battery sled is then secured to the receiver using two screws on the rear of the sled, which ensures that the sled cannot fall off or be removed, and two screws from the front panel to stabilize the sled while on the receiver.

The ADX5D can be powered by a single battery; when two batteries are installed, one can be replaced without interrupting operation. Battery runtime changes depending on the number, type, and capacity of the batteries used.

Insert the battery so that the contact points on the front face connect with the contacts at the rear of the battery sled bay until the latch moves into place. To remove the battery, push the latch down and pull the battery back and up.

The battery sled being slotted on to the receiver. There are arrows calling out the screws that secure the sled.

DB15 Backplate

DB15 backplates are available for devices with 15-pin connectors, such as Sony video cameras. If only one audio channel is available, the 3.5mm connector on the bottom of the front plate can be used to output audio from channel 1, channel 2, channel 1+2 stereo, or channel 1+2 summed mono.

Note: See Country-Specific Functionality Restrictions.

The DB15 rear panel kit for ADX5D includes:

  • A DB15 rear panel, with captive Phillips-head screws that make it easy to mount/unmount the rear panel without losing screws
  • A DB15 spacer plate

Scan for Available Frequencies

Perform group and channel scans to find the best frequencies for your devices.

What are groups and channels?

To minimize interference, Shure wireless systems organize RF bands into predefined groups and channels. An individual frequency is a channel. Channels that are unlikely to interfere with each other are compiled into groups.

Note: Because groups are band-dependent, some systems only have one available group. Single-group bands have the same RF performance as those with multiple groups.

Important: Before you begin:

Turn off all transmitters for the systems you are setting up (this prevents them from interfering with the frequency scan).

Turn on potential sources of interference (other wireless systems or devices, computers, large LED panels, effects processors, and so on) so they are operating as they would be during the presentation or performance. The scan will detect and avoid any interference they generate.

Group Scan

Perform a group scan to find the group with the most available frequencies. Available frequencies can be automatically deployed to receiver channels and other networked components.

  1. Go to Channel Menu > Group Scan.
  2. Press O to scan the group.
  3. When the scan is complete, the number of frequencies found are shown on the display.
  4. Press O to assign frequencies to components on the network.
  5. To deploy frequencies to your transmitters, perform an IR sync.

Channel Scan

Perform a channel scan to find available frequencies within a group.

  1. Go to Channel Menu > Channel Scan
  2. Use the arrow buttons to choose the group you'd like to scan.
  3. Choose one of the following options:
    • Find Next: Finds the next available frequency within the group
    • Find Best: Finds the best available frequency based on RSSI
  4. Press O to confirm your frequency selection.
  5. To deploy frequencies to your transmitters, perform an IR sync.

In network mode, your ShowLink® communications are routed through an AD610 access point, which increases device capacity and ShowLink® range as well as enabling features that depend on connection to a larger network.

Note: The ADX5D is compatible with the AD610 ShowLink® access point.

A diagram showing how ADX5D passes audio & RF data, ShowLink, control messaging, and Ethernet to various networked devices.

Set Up an AD610 and Choose a Network Host ID

To use the ADX5D in network mode, you must connect an AD610 ShowLink® access point to your network and set a network host ID, which grants access to ADX5Ds with a matching client ID. You can control up to 24 Axient® Digital devices with each AD610.

Note: Update your AD610 to the latest firmware and download the latest version of Wireless Workbench before connecting your ADX5D to the network.

Use the following steps to set up an AD610 ShowLink® access point and choose a network host ID:

  1. Connect your AD610 to your network using a Class 1 Power over Ethernet (PoE) port.
  2. Right-click the device in Wireless Workbench and open the device properties.
  3. Set the ShowLink® network host ID (e.g. A.B.C.D).

Repeat this process for any other AD610s you have on the network that you want to act as a gateway for an ADX5D.

Turn On ADX5D Network Mode and Set the Client ID

An ADX5D in network mode uses a client ID to join networks with an AD610 that has a matching host ID. Once you have an AD610 on your network and a network host ID chosen, set your ADX5D to network mode and set the client ID to match the host ID.

Note: You must be using network mode in order to control this device with Wireless Workbench.

To turn on network mode and set the client ID:

  1. In the ADX5D Device Configuration menu, go to ShowLink > SL Mode and select network mode.
  2. Choose the client ID (e.g. A.B.C.D) that matches with your AD610.
  3. The ADX5D reboots to apply the new settings.

If the ADX5D is already operating in network mode, go to Device Cfg  > ShowLink > SL Network Cfg > SL Net ID (Client) and choose the client ID that matches the AD610. The ADX5D reboots to apply the new setting.

ShowLink® Test

Perform a ShowLink® test to find the boundaries of the ShowLink® coverage area between linked devices. When a ShowLink® test is activated, a five-bar display indicating the link quality is shown on the screen. As the devices are moved apart, the number of bars will decrease. ShowLink® control is maintained as long as 1 bar is displayed.

If the device is beyond the coverage range, ShowLink® control is not possible. However, the audio signal will not be affected or interrupted as long as the receiver is within range of the RF signal.

To improve coverage, adjust the location of your devices or place additional access points to extend coverage.

Tip: During a ShowLink® test, press O to drop a marker in Wireless Workbench.

Test coverage of linked transmitters

Perform a ShowLink® test from the Tx Slots menu to plot the status of a linked transmitter's ShowLink® coverage. When your device is in direct mode, this function measures the coverage between your transmitter and the ADX5D; when your device is in network mode, this function measures the coverage between your transmitter and the AD610 it is associated with.

Assigning Transmitters to Transmitter Slots

Each receiver channel contains 8 transmitter slots to control the RF signals passed by the receiver. Transmitters can be assigned to the channel slots or "registered" with the receiver.

For added protection from interference, the receiver will issue a warning or block signals from any transmitters that aren't registered.

To assign a transmitter to a receiver channel:

  1. From the Channel menu, go to Tx Slots.
  2. Use the arrow buttons to scroll to an available transmitter slot. If the slot is occupied, syncing will overwrite the existing transmitter.
  3. Use the arrow buttons to select Sync and press O.

When the sync is complete, the transmitter will be assigned to the slot. The transmitter will remain assigned to the slot until it is unlinked. To remove a transmitter from a slot, use the arrow buttons to select the slot. Then, use the arrow buttons to select Unlink and press O.

Transmission Modes

The receiver offers two transmission modes to efficiently manage the available spectrum used by the transmitters.

Standard Mode

Standard mode employs channel spacing that allows for the operation of transmitters at various power levels.

Standard mode is ideal for situations where spectrum is not limited or when you need to operate transmitters at higher power levels to increase range.

High Density Mode

High density mode creates additional bandwidth for more channels in crowded RF environments by transmitting at 2 mW RF power and narrowing the modulation bandwidth.

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.

Note: Operation mode varies according to region.

Selecting a Transmission Mode

  1. From the Device Configuration menu, go to Device RF > Trans Mode.
  2. Press O to enable editing. Use the arrow buttons to select a mode.
  3. Press O to save.

Frequency Diversity

Frequency diversity enables seamless, uninterrupted audio for mission-critical applications. Frequency diversity works by transmitting the audio on two independent frequencies from an ADX2FD handheld transmitter or from 2 AD/ADX series transmitters.

When operated in frequency diversity mode, the receiver uses two frequencies to provide a single channel of audio. If one frequency experiences interference, the audio from the other frequency is used to prevent dropouts or interruption of the audio.

Using frequency diversity in conjunction with interference detection provides an additional layer of protection for the audio signal.

  1. From the channel menu: Advanced > Frequency Diversity.
  2. Choose one of the following frequency diversity modes:
    • Combining: For use with a single ADX2FD handheld transmitter
    • Selection: For use with a pair of AD/ADX series transmitters
  3. Press O to save.
  4. Perform an IR sync between the receiver and the transmitters.

FD-S Advanced Settings

Override / Lock to Enables the ability to override the FD-S algorithm and manually select the receiver.
Monitor 3.5mm Output Configures the 3.5mm output to monitor pre- or post- FD-S selection.
Audio Evaluation When OFF: Only the RF assessment to the FD-S pairs is made. Recommended when two separate inputs are in use. When ON: If both RF channels in the FD-S pair pass RF assessment, an optional assessment of the audio signal level is made. If the difference in the audio level is significant, the algorithm selects the higher of the two signals.

Interference Management

See Country-Specific Functionality Restrictions.

In the event of signal degradation, interference management technology provides options to move to a clean, compatible frequency, either manually or automatically.

Respond to an alert by manually selecting a new frequency, or allow the Spectrum Manager or Wireless Workbench to automatically deploy a backup frequency the instant interference is detected.

Tip: To dismiss a interference alert, select the affected channel, and then select Dismiss.

Setting the Detection Mode

The detection mode determines how the receiver will switch to a clear frequency in the event of interference.

  1. Select a channel and navigate to: Advanced > Interf. Mgt > Detection Mode
  2. Choose one of the following modes:
    • Manual: Select a frequency manually when interference occurs
    • Automatic: Allow the receiver to automatically select a new frequency

Unregistered Transmitter Action

The unregistered transmitter setting determines how the receiver reacts to the presence of unregistered transmitters, which can be a potential source of interference. If a transmitter is not listed in the receiver's Tx Slots, then that transmitter is considered unregistered to the receiver channel.

From the Interf. Mgt menu, choose one of the following options:

  • Allow: The receiver will pass audio from the unregistered transmitter
  • Warn: The receiver will display a warning when an unregistered transmitter is detected
  • Block: The receiver will treat the unregistered transmitter as interference and will block the audio

Frequency Server

The frequency server option allows you to assign a networked Spectrum Manager as a server for clear frequencies in the event of interference.

  1. From the Interf. Mgt menu, select Freq. Server
  2. Press O to enable editing and select a Spectrum Manager from your network.
  3. Press O to save.
