AutoMode is a function on our LC6i, LC7i, and LC8i multi-channel line converters.
When AutoMode is engaged on the LC6i or LC7i it will automatically take the input of Channel 2 and route it to the Channel 3 output. On the LC8i AutoMode takes the input of Channel 3 and routes it to the Channel 4 output.
AutoMode becomes inactive if the converter sees a signal on the channel 3 input on the LC6i/LC7i or on the channel 4 input of the LC8i.
Typically this function is used to generate a separate sub channel when none is present on the Channel 3 (LC6i/LC7i) or Channel 4 input (LC8i).
Our line converters ship with AutoMode enabled by default. If you want to disable AutoMode there is an internal jumper that can be set to disable.
Here is a diagram showing the routing when AutoMode is engaged on an LC7i.
