FAQ's for Discussion & Conferencing Systems
What’s the difference between a delegate unit and a chairman unit? Your discussion systems seem to include several delegates but a single chairman.
Chairman push-to-talk mics have an extra button, a red priority button, on its base compared to the delegate units that only have a green button. This button allows the person using it to mute/unmute the rest of the mics on the same system. Usually only one chairman is included in each bundle, but you can connect as many as you like by purchasing them separately.
What kind of cables and plugs do you feature in your conferencing systems?
The Enersound CS-300 system uses cables with 7-pin DIN connectors. Both chairman and delegate units come with a 6.6ft (2m) cable attached. These special cables are also sold in various lengths and are available in 9.8ft (3m), 16.4ft (5m), 32.8ft (10m) and 65.6ft (20m.) Cables can be interconnected for longer lengths. Extension cables are recommended for greater flexibility in different microphone layouts.
We have an auditorium that can accommodate around 50 people in the audience, do we need a microphone unit for every available seat?
It will be ideal but not necessarily if there are budget constraints. From the get-go these systems are designed considering that most meeting participants will only speak sporadically and there will be a handful of main speakers. With this in mind the microphones are built in a way that they can easily be shared by up to 3 people. The long and flexible neck perfectly adapts for 2 or 3 people sitting in front, only requiring them to lean slightly when it is their turn to speak.
Does every microphone need to be plugged in?
No, microphone units are connected in daisy chain to one another and the last microphone in the chain is connected to the control unit. The CU (Control Unit) is the core of the discussion system, which controls the microphones of the chairman and delegate units as well as the other audio input and output. It also supplies the power for up to 50 delegate and chairman units.
Do the microphones also have individual speakers?
Yes, each microphone unit, be it a delegate, or a chairman has a built-in speaker that allows the person sitting in front it to listen to what is being said during the meeting. The speaker can also be muted and switched to external audio device if the person prefers to listen directly or through an external PA system.
