UHT - MIDI Encoders convert UHT - KEYBOARD signals into MIDI signals. Each manual is connected by a 20pol. flat ribbon cable. Commercially available MIDI cables must be used for the MIDI connections. They can be purchased in different lengths.
HW2 - EXTENSION
The HW2 Extension is developed to be used in combination with the Software „HAUPTWERK“ to connect (unlighted) pistons and swell pedals. As the name implies it is an extension. HW2 does not have its own MIDI Encoder on board, so it will not work without MIDIO4.
With the HW2 Extension you can connect a 5th manual and a pedalboard, both velocity sensitive. With the small DIP switches the velocity mode can be switched ON or OFF. when single contact mode is set, you can choose between the upper and the lower contact. (same as at MIDIO4). The MIDI channels are fix. Pedalboard = channel 1, manual 5 = channel 14. Additonally you can connect up to 128 switches (and / or push buttons) and up to 4 potentiometers (swell pedals). The potentiometers will be connected to the stereo jacks sockets. Furthermore there are 6 mono jack sockets for connecting toe pistons. With an arbour-mounted circuit board this option can be extended to 12 mono jack sockets. The ports for the switches / push buttons are arranged in 8 groups of 16 pins (X1 -X8). There is a difference in processing the signals of push buttons and switches. You can choose how you want to configure the HW2 Extension. Default 0 = 128 push buttons, default 1 = 128 switches. And of course there are also mixed configurations available. As for example 108 push buttons + 16 switches, or 92 push buttons + 32 switches etc.

64 to WAGO
- This adapt board converts signals from 64pol. flat cable IN into 64 screw connectors (or clamp connectors) OUT. 64toWAGO is passive and works in both directions. There’s no power supply needed. So, the screw connectors (or clamp connectors) can also be converted into a 64pol. flat cable output.
INTERFACES FOR SINGLE OUTPUTS
Electric consoles of pipe organs usually require a contact switching for each single key. For this purpose the 2 interface boards S402061 DS and S402061 DSP have been developed.
- The UHT - S402061DS interface transforms the matrix into single contact signals. At inputs or load resistances the interface can operate with an operating voltage of up to DC 30V. The PCB has a special design, so the interface can easily be mounted at the frame of the keyboard. The interface will be connected to the organ electronic with a 64 pol. ribbon cable. The pins 62, 63 and 64 are not assigned, so they are free configurable. With jumpers to be set, the contact can be selected. (point of speech = upper contact or lower contact) The outputs are low-active. The COM voltage of the load resistances is switched to GND. An adapter board with screw connectors is available as an option. S402061DS can supply single outputs as described above AND MIDI-OUT at the same time. (additional MIDI-Encoder required). DS means „dual scan“
If it is desired to place the pressure point and contact threshold as near as possible to the start of the key stroke, we recommend the key rebound interface that we have developed specially for that purpose. Each key oscillates at the upper limit stop when it spontaneously returns to the rest position. This results in falling below the contact threshold one or more times which, in turn, causes unwanted repetitions of the note. Unfortunately, this physical law cannot be negated. In the case of the key rebound, renewed activation is suppressed for the duration of the rebound. This period of time can be set on a regulator. If an excessively long time is selected, the maximum key repetition frequency is reduced. This is usually very high on UHT keyboards. The organist should find his or her own compromise here.
