The Shure PG1 is the transmitter, the Shure PG14 is the receiver.
The PG1 takes PP3 batteries.
The PG14 is mains powered, as with all mains equipment, you should check the power cable prior to use and safely discard if any cracks or problems are found. You should also not use the equipment outside, or with wet hands.
To switch on the PG1 hold in the button on top until the LED lights – Reverse to turn off.
To Mute the PG1 tap the button on top – reverse to nmute.
when the PG1 is switched on the following LED colours apply
Green – on and transmitting
Orange – on and muted
Red – on and transmitting, battery level is reduced (approximately 30 mins left)
Red and amber alternate – On and Muted, battery level is reduced (approximately 30 mins left)
Inside the battery compartment is an LED display, a channel button and a level switch.
The LED display show the channel that the transmitter is presently transmitting on. this can be changed by holding the button in until the display flashes then press the button to cycle through the channels.
The transmitter / receiver combo will only work if both are set to the same channel.
The level switch affect the level at which the transmitter outputs sound. For our system, this should be set to “mic” although for other systems this would vary.
The receiver has a button on the front to allow you to cycle through the channels as with the transmitter.
The receiver is connected to the power supply and has an XLR cable plugged into it to connect to the Peavey Escort 3000 system.
When the Receiver and transmitter are connected (ie both are on) the ready light will show on the front of the Receiver. As you talk into the microphone you should notice the “sound” light on the receiver light.
If you are operating two (or more) of these microphones you should ensure that you are not on the same or consecutive channels (interference will cut out the channel)
While all the transmitter and receivers look the same, they may work on different frequency ranges, as such if you are using the microphone alongside others ensure that you take home the correct transmitter and receiver pair. If you dont you may find that the transmitter and receiver will not communicate regardless of the channel you put them on. It is possible to check the frequency of the unit by looking at the numbers on the information panel on the back of the units it will be of the form 693-695mhz or 895-897mhz. The numbers are inconsequential as long as the transmitter and receiver you have show the same numbers.
