Can I upgrade my 6000/6100 delay time to 40 seconds?
How do I reset the 6000 Broadcast Audio Delay or 6100 Broadcast Audio Delay to factory default settings?
Hold down the previous, next, and home buttons in while powering up the unit.
Can I purchase a replacement power supply for my 6000/6100 factory direct?
Why does my 6000/6100 have audible artifacts while building delay?
Change or adjust the delay algorithm and/or delay ratio. Find the algorithm and delay ratio that is the most appropriate for the program material. For more information reference the unit’s User’s Guide.
Can I upgrade my 6000/6100 to enable synchronized RS-232 delay?
What is the factory reset for the 6000/6100?
Power-cycle the unit while simultaneously holding down the Previous, Next & Home buttons on the front panel.
Can I upgrade my 6000/6100 to enable TC89 offset capabilities?
What are the differences between the 6100 Broadcast Audio Delay and 6000 Broadcast Audio Delay?
The AirTools 6100 ships standard with: AES-3 digital input and output, Word clock input, Remote Control via RS-232 or RS-485, ESE TC-89 Time Clock Reader.
The AirTools 6000 does not have these features.
How does the Automation Control Interface work on the 6000 Broadcast Audio Delay and 6100 Broadcast Audio Delay?
The 6000 and 6100 have four internal relays that may be independently used to control station automation events. The relay closures (outputs) are triggered by input closures that can be either manual (a momentary switch closure) or electrical (TTL logic low). When an input closure takes place the audio entering the delay at that moment is ‘tagged’. When the tagged audio reaches the output of the delay its corresponding relay closes for a time equal to the length of the input closure.
Why does my 6000/6100 show ‘64P’ on the display and is not operating?
The bypass is engaged and ‘BYP’ is commonly mistaken for ‘64P’ on the display.
Can I build a custom control panel for my 6000/6100?
Yes. See wiring and pinout information in the User’s Guide.
Where can I find a Data Sheet for the 6000 Broadcast Audio Delay?
Where can I find a User's Guide for the 6000 Broadcast Audio Delay?
Can multiple 6000 or 6100 units be controlled by a remote (RC-6000) to dump, cough, start and exit at the same time?
Yes, although custom wiring is required. You would do this by wiring to the contact closure and ground pins on the back of both units in parallel, and then wiring the remote LED indicator pins from just one of the units. The units can not and will not be in perfect sync (start and exit build times), however, the dump, cough, start and exit functions will be triggered at the same time on both units from one remote.
