The Venue Wideband receiver is a modular rack mount design for use with a wide variety of transmitters from Lectrosonics and other manufacturers. Designed for maximum versatility and performance, the wideband design offers the flexibility needed in today’s changing and increasingly congested RF environments. A Venue receiver is a “system” that consists of a master unit and up to six receiver modules. Two different types of receiver modules are available. The standard module (VRS) is an excellent choice for fixed installations where fairly clear RF spectrum is available. The tracking module (VRT) is a more costly alternative, but its tracking front-end makes it the better choice for use in congested RF environments. VRpanel software is included to simplify setup and monitoring.
VRS and VRT receiver modules can be mixed in the same chassis. For ratio diversity operation, both modules in the pair must be on the same frequency block and positioned in the assembly in keeping with the OPTI-BLEND labeling on top of the chassis housing. All modules must be within the frequency passband of the host assembly. Frequency blocks are marked on the receiver module and chassis housings.
Installing Receiver Modules
Turn the power off.
The receiver modules interface with the main assembly through multi-pin connectors on either side of the chassis. Insert the module straight down and then slide it toward the main housing to insert the connector pins. The module should sit flush against the side of the housing.
Align the ridge on the retaining clip with the slot in the chassis and press the clip downward until the ridge snaps into the slot in the side panel.
Removing Receiver Modules
Turn the power off
Remove the retaining clip by pressing on it sideways to release it from the slot in the side panel. Then pull upward to remove it.
Pull outward on the module to release the connector and then lift it upward out of the chassis. Holes in the underside of the chassis allow you to grip the module on the top and bottom.
