RC-100 Base Station 7
Section 3: RC-100 Base Station
The RC-100 wireless Base Station is used to communicate with all RC-100 wireless handheld
controllers on the same channel setting. The RC-100 wireless Base Station also is used to update
connected displays based with information entered on the wireless handheld controller.
The wireless Base Station includes two switches that must be set to specify the function number and
channel of operation. Refer to Section 3.1 and Section 3.2, respectively. In addition, the Base Station
includes a server/client jumper that must be set to “Client Mode” in some scenarios that feature
multiple displays. Refer to Section 3.4 for more information.

* The function of the Base Station depends on whether it is in Server or Client mode. For a
server Base Station, the Function switch sets up the desired application. For a client Base
Station, the Function switch sets up the display group to which this display belongs.
**Function Setting “F” is a special setting which resets all saved memory parameters back to
defaults. This can be used for situations such as when a password needs to be reset. To use
this function, cycle power to the wireless Base Station with the switch in this position and
leave on for 10 seconds. Remove power, change to the desired function and continue. All
saved memory parameters will be set back to default.
