Digitally controlled System Unit

The MCS 553 L system microphone unit consists of a gooseneck microphone and a terminal board for the connection of loudspeaker, up to three buttons such as microphone, priority and clear button and two LEDs for microphone on (green) and request-to-talk (red). The customer can select the external operation buttons and LEDs. beyerdynamic recommends the use of a piezo button with integrated dual colour illuminated ring. The MCS 553 L can be used as a chairman’s microphone unit with three buttons or as a delegate microphone unit with one microphone button. The use depends upon the system configuration with the MCS Editor software. The ready-to-talk status of the microphone is indicated by a red illuminated ring. In the request-to-talk mode of the discussion system the microphone button is used to activate the request. Control voltages to power external LED indicators are available on the terminal board. These indicate microphone on and request to talk when released by the operator of PC or media control system.Dual colour or individual LED indicators may be used. If the microphone button is pressed again, the request to talk is cleared. If the MCS 553 L is used as a chairman's microphone unit, in addition to the microphone button it is possible to connect the priority and clear button. The chairman does not depend upon the limited number of open microphones (NOM). Using the priority button the chairman can intervene into the discussion and temporarily mute or clear the activated delegate microphone units depending upon the system configuration. Using the clear button all activated delegate microphone units are switched off. The installation via 4 buffer holes ensures high protection against vibration. With the cover ring the hole in the table is concealed perfectly, after the gooseneck microphone has been connected to the system unit under the table.
