Auxiliary Control Unit

The auxiliary control unit provides the ability to conserve energy by powering the Cisco TelePresence System 1000 (CTS 1000) lights on and off. There is one power inlet, five controlled power outlets, and one power outlet that is not controlled (unswitched). In addition, there are two serial ports and an incoming and outgoing Ethernet connection that allows you to control peripheral items. The auxiliary control unit is controlled by your CTS 1000 Administrator and can be configured to:

Turn the CTS 1000 lights on during a Cisco TelePresence call and turn the lights off after the call completes, or to stay on for a period of time after a call completes.

Turn the CTS 1000 lights on according to a configured time schedule.

Leave the CTS 1000 lights on continuously.

Figure 3-1 Removing the Front Panel From the Frame

Step 3 Attach the auxiliary control unit to its bracket using the supplied 5 mm screws.


Note Attach the bracket so that the shortest part of the bracket attaches to the wall; otherwise the unit is too wide to fit between the display supports.


Step 4 If your installation uses a presentation codec, connect the Ethernet cable to the auxiliary control unit as follows:

Connect the Primary Codec Document Camera Ethernet connection (orange Ethernet connection on the primary codec) to one Ethernet port of the auxiliary control unit.

Connect the other Ethernet port of the auxiliary control unit to the Presentation Codec Ethernet port (white/red Ethernet connection on the presentation codec).

Step 5 Measure and drill the wall mounting holes for the auxiliary control unit. Hold the unit against the wall and use it as a template for the mounting holes.

Figure 3-2 Measuring and Drilling Holes for Auxiliary Control Unit

Step 6 Mount the auxiliary control unit to the wall using the drywall screws and drywall anchors that are provided with the kit. There are two screws on each side.

Mount the unit directly below the horizontal metal support for the display stand and make sure that the Ethernet connections are pointing upwards and the power connections are pointing downwards. You must connect the Ethernet cables (if they are used) to the unit before you mount it.

Step 7 Route the cables for the auxiliary control unit by completing the following steps:

a. Plug the power cord for the auxiliary control unit into a power outlet.

b. Plug the power cord for the light fixture into any of the switched outlets of the auxiliary control unit.


Note Do not plug the light fixture into the outlet marked "UNSWITCHED."


Step 8 Mount the front panel onto the frame by completing the following steps:

a. Place the front panel onto the frame.

b. Using a #3 Phillips screwdriver, attach the six screws next to the speaker.

c. Mount the black speaker grille onto the front panel.

Step 9 Power on the system by plugging the power cord into an active wall socket.

Adding an Auxiliary Control Unit with a Cisco TelePresence Presentation Codec

To add an auxiliary control unit to a CTS 1000 with a presentation codec, complete the steps in the "Adding an Auxiliary Control Unit" section on page 3-2 and add the following additional connections:

Connect the Primary Codec Document Camera Ethernet connection (orange Ethernet connection on the primary codec) to one Ethernet port of the auxiliary control unit.

Connect the other Ethernet port of the auxiliary control unit to the Presentation Codec Ethernet port (white/red Ethernet connection on the presentation codec).

Configuring an Auxiliary Control Unit

To configure the presentation codec, refer to Cisco TelePresence System Administrator's Guide for your software release.

Cisco TelePresence Presentation Codec

The Cisco TelePresence Presentation Codec (CTS-HFR-COLLAB) provides 30 frames per second (fps) capabilities to support full-motion video presentations between Cisco TelePresence endpoints when used with an auxiliary presentation display.


Note You must install an auxiliary display to enable the 30 fps feature. For the list of the auxiliary displays that are supported for use with Cisco TelePresence systems, refer to the Release Notes for Cisco TelePresence System for your software release. Note that Cisco does not supply the cable that connects auxiliary devices to the codec.
