This equipment allows the user to control SHX multisensory rooms. It is composed by 2 modules: PC and the SHX Device. This manual focuses on the operation of the SHX Device, which is the core of the SHX System. The PC includes the SHX Software and demo contents.
1) Operating the vibroacoustic elements
2) Controlling the lighting elements
3) Controlling the special effects
4) Access with wireless remotes
5) Switch access
6) Controlling elements with infrared signals
NOTE: Do not install the device inside metallic cabinets, since they can reduce the coverage of the radio frequency signals
1. INSTALLING THE EQUIPMENT
2. CONNECTING TO THE PC
Connect the SHX Device to the computer using the USB cable provided.
ALERT: Connect the USB cables straight to the USB ports of the computer. Avoid using intermediate elements to connect them.
The vibroacoustic amplifier included in the equipment allows the connected elements to vibrate with the rhythm of the music, allowing to the users to feel the music in the body.
– Vibroacustic element: Min Ω / Max: 50W
– Do not connect audio speakers
b) Connecting the audio signal
** It is necessary a Jack – RCA cable, Not included
NOTE: Settings only for vibration (the audio output signal operates independently from vibrating settings).
2. Controlling the lighting elements
It is possible to control the lighting elements in the SHX room using the SHX Device: change the colours and regulate the intensity of the lighting according to the activity and according to the environmental sound or the projected images.
The lights and lighting elements included in the SHX System use the standard DMX protocol. It is necessary that the lighting elements allow DMX connections.
All the lighting elements must be interconnected using the DMX cables provided:
You can change the colour of the general lighting and each lighting element with the specific contents configured in the SHX Software:
The SHX system allows the wireless control of the elements used as special effects: fan, stars, soap bubbles, UV spotlight…
NOTE: Install the antennae. Make sure that the antennae are not near any sources of interference.
Each element used as a special effect must be connected to the mains using the Radio Frequency receiver Enabler Socket+ (BJ-234)
The SHX Device can receive wireless instructions from the different elements in the room that activate the contents configured in the SHX software. Examples of these elements are: SHX Die, SHX Controller, SHX Mat…
NOTE: Install the antennae. Make sure that the antennae are not near any sources of interference
The SHX Software content can be activated from wireless elements (SHX Controller, SHX Die…). Each button of the wireless element activates a cell (content) of the selected tab (activity).
The SHX Software content can be activated using switches.
Connect a switch (preferably wireless switch) to the jack inputs depending on the desired function.
NOTE: Make sure that the switches that you connect are not associated with any voltage source
There are 6 direct inputs that activate the first 6 cells (contents) of each tab (activity).
This device can control elements in the sensory environment that work by remote control, for example: multimedia projector, TV… The SHX software can be used to memorize the functions of the remote controls and activate these elements.
The SHX software allows to memorize the “IR function” of any remote, facing the remote control towards the IR REC Identificator.
See the section “Add an action to a cell” in the Help available in the SHX Software, to integrate this function into a tab or content.
When activating the programmed cell, the device (controlled before by the remote control) will start operating.
NOTE: When you use IR to control other items, make sure that there is direct visibility between the IR transmitter of the SHX Device and the item to be controlled.
The device must be disconnected from the power outlet before cleaning.
Never use chemicals or abrasives for cleaning.
Clean the outer surface of the rack on a regular basis to prevent incidents
Electrical products should not be disposed of with household waste.
Within the legal warranty period we agree to rectify for free by repairing or replacing defects in the product derived from defective materials or manufacturing defects.
Any unauthorised alteration or modifications to the product will void this warranty.
This message appears when the computer fails to detect the SHX Device. Review the following steps (section “Introduction – Firts steps” of this manual).
To verify the operation, it is better to connect a single lighting element directly to this device.
If the element that has been tested in the previous sections works correctly, add the rest of the elements of the installation one by one and:
IMPORTANT: Firts step is very important, if SHX is not running properly the Tablet will not be able to connect to the Wifi generated by the “Connectify” program.
