These instructions are supplied together with all equipment that can be connected to the mains supply. Safety precautions Some of the DICENTIS Conference System products are designed to be connected to the public mains network. To avoid any risk of electric shock, all interventions must be carried out with disconnected mains supply.
DICENTIS About this manual | en About this manual The purpose of this manual is to provide information required for installing the DICENTIS Conference System. This installation manual is available as a digital document in the Adobe portable document format (PDF).
It is advisable to participate in the DICENTIS Conference System training before you install, configure, prepare, and operate a DICENTIS Conference System. The DICENTIS Conference System is an IP based conference system which runs on an OMNEO compatible Ethernet network. It is used for distributing and processing audio, video and data signals.
Participants can use their DICENTIS device to contribute to a meeting. – 5.1 is a DICENTIS multimedia Device used for “system power on/off”. This device is always connected to the powered socket of the Audio Powering Switch or Powering Switch.

The shortest redundant cable does not need to be counted. 4.3.2 Calculation using PoE switches Select one or more PoE Ethernet switches to supply power to the DICENTIS devices. Each DICENTIS device must be connected to an individual PoE enabled output of an Ethernet switch.
DICENTIS System installation design and planning | en Redundancy options DICENTIS Conference Systems can be created with network redundancy. This ensures that the system will continue to work if: – a network cable is defective or accidentally disconnected. – one of the components fails.
The # sign shows the way the devices are counted. In the example below up to 21 discussion devices can be connected. Figure 4.6: DICENTIS devices connected with redundant cabling to the same DCNM-APS / DCNM-PS type unit 1: DCNM-APS or DCNM-PS.
The # sign shows the way the devices are counted. In the example below up to 19 discussion devices can be connected. Figure 4.7: DICENTIS discussion devices connected with redundant cabling between DCNM-PS2 / DCNM- APS2 type units 1: DICENTIS system/client PC.

Figure 7.5: DCNM‑HDMIC and DCNM‑MICS / DCNM‑MICL front and bottom view Number Description LED indicator.
The microphone can be easily connected to the DICENTIS devices: Figure 7.6: DCNM‑HDMIC or DCNM-MICS / DCNM-MICL connection To do so: Gently guide the connection guidance (4) into the DICENTIS device microphone connector (9). Gently push the connector plug (6) into the device microphone connector (9) until the connection lock (5) fits/click into place.
The name card holder (1) can be used to permanently display the participant’s name on the rear of a DICENTIS multimedia Device. The name card holder has two magnets (2) that allow it to be easily attached to, and removed from, the rear of the device.
Not to do so could result in a system malfunctioning. Each DICENTIS device has its own built‑in diagnostics, which can be used for faultfinding. The diagnostics starts as soon the DICENTIS device is powered on. The DICENTIS Conference System does not have to be configured with, and connected to, the system controller PC.
