The WZ3 SYS-Link V2 for Wizard Series Monitor from Allen & Heath is a connection standard for linking two consoles together to expand the number of input channels feeding the mixes. One console becomes the slave to the other master console. All the slave console mix busses, including main LR, groups, and auxiliary, connect directly to the master console mix busses without using up valuable input channels. The PFL/AFL system is also linked so that all channels can be monitored using the master console headphones and meters. The slave console master section is not used as its signals are taken before the mix inserts and output faders. Both consoles must have the SYS-LINK option fitted. A single multi-way cable is all that is required to link two consoles fitted with the WZ3 SYS-Link V2.
The MixWizard WZ3 uses the SYS-LINK version 2 standard. It benefits from balanced interconnections which allow long cable length with low chance of noise and interference pickup. It operates at -2dBu line level, and uses the 37way D-type connector. Two consoles fitted with SYS-LINK V2 can be linked using a 36-core shielded cable wired one-to-one to two 37way male D-type connectors. It is also possible to connect between SYS-LINK V2 and V1.
Note: Connection between SYS-LINK V2 and V1 requires a 37way to 25way adapter cable wired to unbalance the connections. The interconnecting cable is sold separately.
