Task 5: Installing and Connecting RADs and DRs

When the shielded CAT 5e cable is in place and the HAL and EXPs (if needed) are installed, connected, and configured, you can begin installing and testing the RADs and DRs. Several installation procedures are described in this section. The first procedure provides the details of installing and testing RADs and DRs in a new HAL System. The remaining procedures explain how to replace a RAD or DR in an existing HAL System.

Before installing the RADs and DRs, you may want to familiarize yourself with their functionality and hardware features. See Overview of Remote Audio Devices and Overview of Digital Remote Devices. Also, if the audio designer did not provide you with labels for the RADs (and if you have not yet generated labels), you may want to print them before beginning the installation process. See Generating Device Labels for details.

note: When installing and testing RADs and DRs in a new HAL System, double-check that the HAL is connected and powered on (and, preferably, configured) before beginning the RAD/DR installation.

note: If you want to use RAD functionality in your audio rack near a HAL or EXP, a nice solution is to install RADs in the rack using special expansion devices. We suggest you take a look at the rack device products by Lowell (specifically the LD9-RMP) or by Radio Design Labs (specifically the RM-D9 rack mount product).
