Connection to LAN

Connect 2N® IP Audio Kit to the LAN using an RJ-45 terminated UTP/STP cable (of category Cat 5e or higher). As the device is equipped with the Auto-MDIX function, you can use either the straight or crossed cable version.

2N® IP Audio Kit is according to the version equipped with one or two LAN interfaces (LAN1 and LAN2) and an integrated Ethernet switch. You can use only LAN1 interfaces for LAN connection. LAN1 is the only interface provided with PoE.

LAN2 helps connect another LAN device on the installation site. This interface is not equipped with PoE.

Note

  • 2N® IP Audio Kit does not allow you to feed another connected device via PoE. The integrated PoE function is intended for the
    2N® IP Audio Kit supply only.

Caution

  • We recommend the use of a LAN surge protection.
  • We recommend the use of a shielded SSTP Ethernet cable.

Connection of External Power Supply

2N® IP Audio Kit can be supplied either from an external 9–26 V / 2 A DC source or directly from the LAN provided with the PoE 802.3af supporting network elements.

 

External Power Supply

Connect the external 12 V power supply to the DC in terminals. Use safety low-voltage voltage (SELV, 9–26 V) dimensioned for the minimum current consumption of 2 A (Part No. 91341481E, e.g.) to make your device work correctly.

 

PoE Supply

2N® IP Audio Kit is compatible with the PoE 802.3af technology (Class 0–12.95 W) and can be supplied directly from the LAN via compatible network elements. If your LAN lacks such compatible elements, you can insert a PoE injector, Part No. 91758100E, between your 2N® IP Audio Kit and the nearest network element. Connect your 2N® IP Audio Kit to the LAN via the LAN1 interface to supply it successfully.

Caution

  • In case you feed your 2N® IP Audio Kit via PoE or from a limited-power external power supply, monitor the power consumption of the whole system. With regard to the PoE 802.3af capacities and efficiency of the switched-mode power supplies in the device, the maximum possible device input is approximately 12 W. An overload of the PoE source usually results in PoE disconnection and, subsequently,
    2N® IP Audio Kit restart.
  • The 2N® IP Audio Kit consumption at relax (power amplifier inactive, no load switched on LED1–3 and OUT1–2 outputs) is up to 2 W.
  • The maximum power amplifier consumption is determined by the current loudspeaker volume level and impedance (up to 10 W for a 4 Ω loudspeaker). The real consumption is typically lower and depends on the characteristics of the signal to be amplified.
  • If you intend to connect a considerable load to the OUT1 and OUT2 outputs, make sure that the total input does not exceed the above mentioned limit (12 W for PoE). If the PoE supply fails to provide sufficient power for the specific application, use a more powerful external source to make your device work perfectly.

Connection of LED Indicators

2N® IP Audio Kit is equipped with three independent current LED control outputs (LED1±, LED2± and LED3± terminals). All of them are current outputs (20 mA, up to 12 V). You can connect the LEDs directly to the terminals of these outputs or use LEDs with serial resistors. Mind the polarity while connecting the LEDs to make your device work properly.

The functions of the LED1, LED2 and LED3 outputs are programmable.

 

Connection of Keypad/Buttons

2N® IP Audio Kit is equipped with an interface for connection of an external matrix keypad or up to 16 separate buttons; see the figure below:

The buttons are connected in a 4 × 4 matrix to the ROW1–4 (output) and COL1–4 (inputs) terminals. If you do not make use of all of the 16 buttons, you can leave some of the ROW and COL signals unconnected. If you need one button only, connect it to the ROW1 and COL4 terminals.

The button function is programmable. You can set the numerical keypad buttons to any matrix position (0 to 9, *, #) or configure one of the 16 buttons for dialling a telephone directory position. 

Caution

  • Errors such as false keystroke detection may occur in installations with strong EMI. Therefore, make sure that the keypad or button cables are carried in a trunk separated from the power cables and are as short as possible (up to 1 m).
  • Lite version has a button (BUTTON) connected to the terminals COL1, ROW4. In a default configuration, a keypad button * is configured at this matrix position.

Connection of External Loudspeaker

2N® IP Audio Kit is equipped with an integrated 10 W power amplifier of class D. The amplifier output is available on the SPEAKER+ and SPEAKER- terminals. The maximum power is achievable with a 4 Ω loudspeaker only.

The higher the loudspeaker impedance, the lower the maximum power output; refer to the table below:

Loudspeaker impedance

Maximum power (at +20 dB)

4 Ω (min)

10 W

8 Ω

5 W

16 Ω

2.5 W

32 Ω

1.2 W

64 Ω

0.6 W

Caution

  • Never connect a loudspeaker with impedance lower than 4 Ω to avoid system damage.
  • Never exceed the maximum power output designated for the loudspeaker to avoid loudspeaker destruction. Choose a loudspeaker with proper impedance and maximum power values, or limit the maximum volume level in the device configuration.
  • Use an external power supply to maximise the power output. Make sure that the maximum Master volume value is +6 dB in the Hardware / Audio menu if you use PoE and 4 Ω speaker.

Connection of External Microphone

2N® IP Audio Kit is equipped with an input for connection of an external electret microphone on the MIC+ and MIC- terminals. Shielding of the shielded cable is connected to the IN- terminal.

Caution

  • Undesired noise may be heard in the earphone where EMI affects the microphone signal. To avoid this, connect the microphone using a shielded cable of the minimum possible length.

 

Connection of External Amplifier

2N® IP Audio Kit is equipped with a line output for connection of an external power amplifier on the LINE OUT+ and LINE OUT− terminals.

 

Connection of External Audio Source

2N® IP Audio Kit is equipped with a line input for connection of an external audio signal source (FM tuner, MP3 player, e.g.) on the LINE IN+ and LINE IN− terminals.

Connection to Relay Output

2N® IP Audio Kit is equipped with one galvanically isolated relay switch with N/O and N/C contacts on the NC, NO and COM terminals. The relay function is programmable.

Connection to Digital Outputs

2N® IP Audio Kit is equipped with two active outputs (supply from PoE: 10 V DC; suply from external source: voltage minus 2 V, max. 11 V DC, output current: max 600 mA) on the OUT1± and OUT2± terminals. The outputs are overload and short-circuit resistant. The output function is programmable.

Warning

When you connect a device containing a coil, such as a relay or an electromagnetic lock, it is necessary to protect the intercom against voltage peak while switching off the induction load. For this way of protection we recommend a diode 1 A / 1000 V (e.g., 1N4007, 1N5407, 1N5408) connected antiparallel to the device.

Connection to Digital Inputs

2N® IP Audio Kit is equipped with two digital inputs on the IN1± and IN2± terminals. The digital inputs recognise the following two logic levels: log. 0 for voltage under 1.1 V a log. 1 for voltage over 3 V. Keep the voltage polarity to make the function work properly. The function is programmable for either input.
