Custom Equipment Profiles

Equipment profiles contain coordination settings that apply to all devices of a certain make and model. There are existing equipment profiles in Wireless Workbench for Shure and non-Shure devices, and you can also build custom equipment profiles in order to have more control over coordination requirements for your devices.

Note: The default equipment profiles in Wireless Workbench can't be modified, but you can update the manufacturer, model, or band, make parameter changes, and then save as a new profile.

Create or Modify a Profile

To see and manage equipment profiles, go to Tools > Equipment Profiles. There are a few ways to create a custom profile.

  • Use the profile of an existing device to build a new profile. Select the manufacturer, model, band, and transmission mode of an existing equipment profile. Click An icon with two pieces of paper on top of each other, indicating making a copy near the title of the profile to copy it and change either the manufacturer or the model to something unique.
  • Build a new profile from the ground up. Click the plus sign by the Equipment header and choose New.
  • Import a custom profile. Click the plus sign by the Equipment header and choose Import.

Define Profile Settings

Device properties

In the Info panel, add or update the device type, tuning capability, and front-end filter type. Click Edit to make changes.

Compatibility settings

In the Compatibility panel, there are ranges for each of the three compatibility settings: robust, standard, and more frequencies. You can click the plus sign and choose New or Import to add spacing options beyond the three stock settings. You can add new compatibility profiles to both stock equipment profiles (those that come with Wireless Workbench) and custom equipment profiles. For custom equipment profiles, you can also edit the existing ranges for robust, standard, and more frequencies.

Click An icon with two pieces of paper on top of each other, indicating making a copy next to each compatibility setting to copy the setting and make updates. For each compatibility setting, you can adjust:
  • Front-end filter - Check the intermod source box if the device is capable of generating transmitter-to-transmitter intermod products.
    Note: Most fixed-carrier wireless systems should be treated as “Intermod Sources”.
  • Channel spacing - Customize the minimum space between frequencies for each compatibility level.
  • Intermod spacing - Define channel spacing values for intermodulation products in both two and three-transmitter scenarios
