Get EAS Admin up and running

Last updated Oct 19, 2021 @ 13:34

Single bus EAS systems will work right off the shelf without configuration, but if you’re doing a larger system that includes a SYSCON, several volume zones using FX panels or just want to make EQ adjustments in a challenging room – you’re going to need EAS Admin.

Install and run the application

While we’re working on remote control, EAS Admin is as of now a Windows application. We suggest installing it on a laptop if you’re going on-site, and in this day and age it will probably run Windows 10.

  • First you’ll want to download the zipped installer found at the very top of the EAS support page. That location always will always provide the latest release.
  • Inside you’ll find your typical Windows installer executable. Run that and just go along with the wizard, clicking Next, Accept, OK etc. until you finally get to the Finish button.
  • EAS Admin is now installed. The quickest way to find and start it, is by pressing the Windows-button on your keyboard once and start typing “eas”. It will pop up and you simply press Enter to run the application.

Wire it up

With EAS Admin installed, all you need now is a connection to the EAS System using a USB interface: either the the small EAS Adapter USB dongle we provide, or the EAS-CP-V. There is also the option to connect to a SYSCON-12 via serial connection, but that’s only used in rare cases.

Which one you use doesn’t really matter, and where you connect to your bus doesn’t matter either. Just find an available RJ-45 EAS connection on one of your modules. If all are in use, just unplug a non-configurable device temporarily.

Select USB device and Connect

  • When starting the app make sure it’s set to EAS Adapter, unless you’re connecting via a SYSCON-12.
  • Now press Connect to scan the system for all available devices.

And that’s it, you’re up and running and other articles take over. Feel free to check out related support articles on how to do specific things inside EAS Admin.
