Nuvo

From HSYCO
Jump to: navigation, search

NuVo Grand Concerto and Essentia E6G are multi-source, multi-zone audio distribution systems that may be integrated to work with external control systems and servers. The central unit is called Main Processor Unit (MPU).

It provides power supply, source audio routing to the zones, amplified stereo audio output for each zone and centralized control and interface for all zones.

Communication

Employ a DE-9 (often called DB-9) male-female RS-232 straight cable to connect the RS-232 MPU port to the serial port on HSYCO SERVER.

You can also define and connect to more than one NUVO MPU to control multiple systems.

RS-232 parameters:

Baud rate 57600
Data bits 8
Stop bit 1
Parity none
Flow control none

Nuvo Configuration

On the NUVO device, a number of contiguous sources starting from the source 1 must be configured.

One of the areas 17 to 20 must be reserved for communication with HSYCO.

HSYCO Configuration

Add a Nuvo I/O Server in the I/O Servers section of the Settings and set its parameters:

Communication

  • Comm ID: select the comm port connected to the panel.

High Availability

  • Shutdown when inactive: defaults to true.

Options

ID Default Values Description
gui true true enable support for the UI object, UISET actions and USER commands
false disable UI support
menuzone 20 17 ... 20 defines which virtual zone will be used to access the menu system
menulines 10 the number of menu item lines
