9 Control Features TCP/IP Ethernet Control port for LAN/WAN control USB Control port for local PC control2 x RS232 port for Touch-panel controlGPIO ports for AUX switching devicesCAN port for remote access to EV’s RL & RT amplifiersFull support of redundancy in emergency call related systems.
11 LEDs Frontpanel AUDIO CHANNEL LEDs: Volume monitor for input and output signalsSIGNAL: green, >-25 dBuPEAK: red, 18 dBu, 3 dB space.FrontpanelLEDsNETWORK LEDs:ACTIVE: blinking or permanent on means data transfer via CobranetMASTER: one of the network partners is automatically the master of the network.SYSTEM STATUS LEDs:Show status of unit and systemREADY is on after booting and shows satisfying operationFAULT shows error in unit or system.USB-connector:Connection to a PC when unit isassembled in a rack.POWER LED:Shows the unit is switched on.
24 Rearpanel Mainframe Connections Ethernet Interface: RJ45 Ethernet connector for 100 BASE-TX / 10 BASE-T networks.RS 232-Ports:For connection of the N8000 with external devices like multimedia systems, building management systems, or PROANNOUNCE managerASCII-string protocol easy to implementConfiguration of ports via IRIS - SoftwareDirect communication with PC via terminal program possible.Remote-CAN Bus:Connection to EV Remote Controlled Amplifiers or other units with CAN interfaceConnectors are in parallelSTATUS led: shows activity at the CAN bus.GPIO Control Port:4 inputs V freely programmableCan be used as digital (on/off) or analog (e. g. volume control) inputDigital inputs: 0V = low, 10 V = highAnalog inputs: via potentiometer V or from multimedia system.GPIO Control Port:4 logical outputs, relay contacts SPSTOut 1 potential free for fault signalisationOut 2..4 referenced to ground,+5V output can be used to operate external relays or LEDs with max 200 mA.
25 These distributors are called hubs or switches. Network TopologyThese distributors are called hubs or switches.A hub sends all the signals to every connection.A switch is more intelligent and sends the data packets only to the destination where they are needed.star network.
26 Network TopologyThere are more complex networks (e. g. ring topologies) that are possible. These must be realised with managed switches. With these networks, higher safety and redundancy is possible.Keywords in these types of networks are Rapid Spanning Tree– protocol, V-lan, Wireless Lan.
27 Network structures for typical stadium sound systems Redundant networksNetwork structures for typical stadium sound systemsFrom the nonredundant minimum solution to the maximum redundant network.
30 Specifics to Observe with CobraNet CobraNet is a supplement to Ethernet.Because of the popularity of Ethernet, all components are cheap and available in a wide variety. Way to move audio data over Cat5(6) or Fiber networks.Specifics to Observe with CobraNetThe audio data is distributed via Bundles. In one bundle, a maximum of 7 audio channels with 24 bit audio or 8 audio channels with 20 bit audio can be transported .
32 Specifics to Observe with CobraNet The capacity of units working with Cobranet is measured in these bundles (for example, the N8000 can receive 4 bundles and can transmit 4 bundles)It is important to calculate the necessary bandwidth before starting a project. For that there is the PC program CobraCad.
33 The following features can be realised: In NetMax we have the possibility to exchange data with a PROMATRIX – systemThe following features can be realised:announcement/alarm into different Areasannouncement/alarm into different sectors of a PROSOUND areaaudio signal from local or networking (RS485) DPM 4000transmission of different BGM sources into the ELA areasTransmission of all audio signals via fiber optics, CobraNet, networkTransmission of the RS 485 – signals for networking DPM 4000 via fiber optics.
34 Script FilesScript files as advanced programming are extentions of the operating elements in the IRIS program for use of multiple commands coming from a single element.
35 EV NetMax with IRIS-NET software is the integrating tool for audio and control EV NetMax is the linking component to use distributed ProSound installations as life safety standard conform integrated systemsEV NetMax can be used as audio expansion for Dynacord ProAnnounce systems
36 EV NetMax can be interconnected via data interface, GPIO‘s and supervisioned audio lines User tailored operation, supervision and administration from e.g. paging consoles, PC or touch TFT screens and media control systemsStatus and failure signalization „in both worlds“: Life safety Paging and ProSound
