  • Plug the rack’s power cord to a wall plug. Make sure that the rack terminal has the switch set to the ON position.

Assembly of the speakers:

Materials needed for fixing the speakers:

  • 6 wall screws for 6mm stud
  • 6x 6mm studs (min). (Make sure you use the appropriate plugs on the mounting surface.

Assembly:

To fix the speakers, the speaker stands must be fixed to the wall:

To mount the speaker stand follow the following steps:

  1. Place the stand on the wall and mark with a pencil the fixing points of the screws.
  2. Make the holes with a drill (minimum holes are recommended 6mm)
  3. Fix the brackets to the wall using the screws and the fixing plugs.
  4. Use the Allen key attached to the product to adjust the inclination of the support. Check that the tilt is tight after adjusting it.
  5. Mount the speaker directly on the stand.
  6. Connect the speaker cable from the back. To connect the connector, insert it and turn it until it clicks.
  7. To remove the connector, pull the silver tab and turn the connector.

Before starting

  • Connect the USB cables directly to the USB ports of the computer. Avoid using intermediate elements to connect them.
  • Make sure that the switches you connect are not associated with any voltage source.
  • Do not install the equipment inside metal cabinets, as they may reduce the coverage of radio frequency signals.
  • When using the infrared signal emission to control equipment, make sure that there is direct visibility between the SHX Central Device and the equipment to be controlled.

Lighting Devices

The SHX System allows the control of different lighting elements.

This allows to change the colors and to regulate the intensity of the lighting depending on the activity and according to the ambient sound or the projected images.

a) Connections:

The control of the lighting elements is done through DMX connections. The lighting elements must be compatible with DMX protocol.

Connect DMX cable from the SHX Device to the first DMX element of the chain and also, on the last element, connect the end of line connector.

b) Functioning:

The color of the different elements installed in the room is controlled on each tab.

 


Effects control

This device can control wirelessly effect elements such as fan, Stars, Bubbles, UV lights among others.

a) Connections:

IMPORTANT: Mount the antennas and make sure they are not close to sources which could produce interferences.

All effect elements must be connected to the power through the Enabler Socket + receiver (BJ-234).

b) Functioning:

The elements are controlled from the icons on the “Control” tab.

Access by wireless controls

This unit can receive orders from different controllers in the room to activate wirelessly the contents configured on the SHX software. For example: SHX Dice, SHX Controller, SHX Mat or the SHX Switch.

a) Connections:

IMPORTANT: Mount the antennas and make sure they are not close to sources which could produce interferences.

b) Functioning:


From the wireless elements, the software boxes can be activated. Each button activates a box of the selected tab.

Access by switches

It’s possible to activate contents of the SHX software using switches.

a) Connections

Connect a switch (wireless switches recommended) to the control inputs and choose the desired function.

b) Functioning:

There are 6 direct inputs that activate the first 6 cells of each tab.

Direct entries:

Special functions inputs

Sweep: when activating this entry, the scanning of the cells from the selected tab starts. A second activation will iniciate the content of the selected cell.

Random: with each pressing, a cell of the active tab is activated randomly.

  

Sequential: with each activation in this input, all cells of the tab activate by order.

Control of elements by infrared

From this device, it’s possible to control elements of the environment that already have remote controls, for example: Projector, TV … Using the SHX software you can store buttons of other remote controls to activate these elements from the SHX software.

a) Connections:

b) Functioning

The SHX software allows memorizing the “IR function” of any command, facing the command towards the IR REC identifier.

Consult the SHX manual to integrate this function into a tab or scene.

Activating the programmed box will turn ON the device that until now controlled the infrared command.

Check the Room Usage Guide included with the SHX Rack to program the SHX software and customize the room’s operation.

  • Before cleaning, disconnect the equipment from the wall plug.
  • Clean using soapy water and a soft cloth (wrung out).
  • Never use chemical or abrasive products for cleaning.
  • Thoroughly dry the product and do not feed until it is completely dry.
  • Check that the ventilation openings are free of dust to ensure proper ventilation of the device.
  • It is recommended a periodic inspection of the devices, in case of detecting any anomaly disconnect the device from the current and immediately contact your supplier for assistance.

The following message appears in the SHX software:

‘Please connect the Central Device and restart the application’

This message appears when the computer does not detect the device. Check the following steps (section 2 of this manual):

  1. Check if the feeder is connected and that the plug has power. The feeder LED must be on.
