How do I mix E1 transceivers and IPT's on the same frame?

If you add an E-IPA card to a frame which already has an E-QUE configured for FSII, and you will notice that wireless beltpack is not offered as a port option on the E-IPA card. That’s because normally mixed E1 and IPT’s are not allowed on the same frame.

However, there is a way to allow the operation of both transceiver types on the same frame.

On the PC go to C:\Programs Files->Clearcom->EHX Configuration System x.x (folder)on PC. Use notepad to open the EclipseClient.exe.config file and edit this line ( it’s near the top of the file):

<add key="PermitMixedFreespeakII" value="False" />

 Change the value to True. Save the config file, and close and re-open EHX to incorporate the change.

Prior to making the change you may want copy the original EclipseClient.exe.config file to a different folder as a back up.

You will now see “wireless beltpack” offered as a port option on the E-IPA card. Once you add at least one beltpack to the card, the transceiver page will change, and show the familiar detect, add and delete IP transceiver buttons.

Keep in mind, beltpacks still cannot roam between the 2 transceiver types, so this type of installation only makes sense if covering 2 distinct radio spaces if the E1 transceivers are 1.9GHz

If the E1 transceivers are 2.4Ghz, then the radio spaces may overlap, and the system can accommodate a total of 90 beltpacks. ( 50 1.9GHz plus 40 2.4GHz)

mixing FSII EQue card using E1 Antennas and EIPA card using IPT where both systems use Dect 1.9Gz will !! lead to a unstable system , if the RF zones overlap

They both work within the same RF space and will cause RF clash , with one antenna type wither E1 or IPT not working correctly

Available solutions are

a) Remove the IPT antennas and set your E-IPA card into E1 mode and use E1 antennas (available from EHX V12.1 onwards) see FAQ

b) Remove the EQUE and E1 antennas and replace with IPT antennas connected via a AES67 compliant network to the E-IPA card

c) Do not over lap E1 and IPT RF zones … note there is no roaming between the two antennas as they use different technology

We recommend options A or B , and not C
