The Wireless Tone Generator must be physically connected to a Public Address (PA) and/or bell system in order to send tones. In installations with multiple wireless tone generators, any unit may be used for the tone output via the “audio output”, or for switching via the “contacts”. In some installations, you may choose to use both outputs (audio and switching) to meet your system requirements.
Installation must adhere to local code approved methods to connect the Wireless Tone Generator to a PA and/or bell system.
The Wireless Tone Generator has an isolation transformer output. The unit is supplied with two styles of audio cables. One is for amplifiers with a terminal block and the other is for the standard RCA type audio input.
Using the appropriate cable, connect the audio output port from the Wireless Tone Generator to the audio input port on the PA and/or bell system.
Refer to the installation user guide of thePA and/or bell system for instructions on where to connect the output. Locate the correct connection points on the existing PA system that provides the desirable result for the Wireless Tone Generator supplied tone.
When connecting to the Wireless Tone Generator unit's Relay Output terminals, the larger cover should remain closed and secure. Only the smaller cover should be open.
Remain within safe operating limits of the relay specification at all times. 4.4A 250VAC Max.
If desired, connect the relay output to the devices to be controlled by the Wireless Tone Generator. You can connect to either the normally open or normally closed relay cycle. There are two relay output terminals on the Wireless Tone Generator under the small cover.
The left two screws are the “normally open” terminal, labeled "NO."
The right two screws are the “normally closed” terminal, labeled "NC."
The relay of the Wireless Tone Generator opens and closes to reflect the action programmed and stored in the non-volatile memory of the Wireless Tone Generator.
Attach the supplied antenna to the Wireless Tone Generator unit. Operating without the antenna being properly connected greatly reduced its operating range, but will not harm it.
Once the Wireless Tone Generator has been connected to a PA and/or bell system and the unit covers have been secured, you can power on the unit. Only use the power transformer supplied by Primex.
Re-attach the covers on the Wireless Tone Generator and secure them before supplying power to the unit. Do not plug in the power transformer until after the covers have been secured.
Plug the Wireless Tone Generator power transformer into a full time 120-volt outlet, then into the power input receptacle on the bottom of the Wireless Tone Generator case. The power input is labeled 9 VDC.
Upon power-up, the green RX LED flashes twice. Approximately 15 seconds later, the LED should begin to flash when the Wireless Tone Generator is receiving a signal from the Transmitter. If the LED is not flashing, refer to the Troubleshooting section.
It's important to secure the Wireless Tone Generator base to a solid object to protect it from damage and ensure its continued functioning. The base has four tabs where it can be screwed onto any solid surface.
Hardware setup of the Wireless Tone Generator is now complete. Once the Event Scheduler Pro Software has been installed and schedules have been configured and uploaded to the Transmitter, the Wireless Tone Generator will be fully functional.
The Wireless Tone Generator tone schedule is configured within the Primex Event Scheduler Pro software. This software is required to be installed onto a computer and the tone schedule is created and managed from the Event Scheduler Pro software.
After the software has been installed and the schedule is configured, the schedule must be downloaded from the computer to the Transmitter using the supplied DB9 connector cable.
