Layout ID troubleshooting wireless base stations and cabs

Do your wireless cabs work when the plugged in? Do you have other wireless cabs that are working ok? Are all wireless cabs having this issue? If your wireless cab has an external antenna or has an older version of the wireless, you might have an older firmware version with a "layout ID" It could be a "Layout ID " issue. 


The Layout ID must be set to 0 on the cab, and in the RB02 if both have the layout ID option. Do not attempt to use any other number.  


Setting the layout ID on the RB02

1- Unplug the RB02 from the Cab Bus. Do not turn off the system power.
2- Remove the batteries from a Pro Cab. Plug a Pro Cab into the PORT A connector of the RB02 using any standard Cab Bus cable.
If a repeater cable is already plugged into this expansion port, temporarily remove it.
3- Restore the Cab Bus connection to the RB02.

****  If you DO NOT see the Layout ID option, you have an updated version 2.0 or 2.1 that has already been removed.
4- Type 0, then press ENTER.
5- Unplug the Pro Cab from PORT A to enable the radio operation of the RB02. The radio will not
operate until the cab is unplugged.
6- Restore the repeater connection to PORT A if it was removed. ==================================================

Setting the layout ID on the ProCab
Turn the command station OFF.
The layout ID is set by pressing “EXPN” and selecting option #2 (SETUP RADIO).
Press “ENTER” to skip setting/changing the automatic shutdown timer.

Press 0 to set the Layout ID.  Press enter and the cab should return to normal operation. ****  If you DO NOT see the Layout ID option, you have an updated wireless cab version firmware 1.5 or later, and it has been removed.


If you have the layout ID option in one piece of hardware but not the other, you have mismatched wireless versions. ALL items with the Layout ID option MUST be sent to NCE for a firmware update so all components will operate together correctly. Everything will work fine if ALL components still have the layout ID option, provided the Layout ID is set to 0. Wireless issues will arise if you have a mixture of equipment that do AND do not have the Layout
ID option.
