The Matrix – Wiring Pushbuttons to the TT33-2
When using an STR Modular Button assembly, the system can read
which switch is being pressed by electronics built into the switches.
In the case of a Custom Panel, these electronics are built into the
TT33-2 and you must run wires to assign each button to a position
in a matrix.

The chart to the left shows an example of how a 15 button
panel could be connected using combinations of letters and
numbers to give each button a unique identification in the
electronic matrix.
As long as each button is connected to a unique combination
of one letter and one number then the system will be able to
assign addresses to each button.
Using the matrix on the TT33-2 module, you can get 4x6 (24)
unique combinations. One of these combinations (D6) is
reserved for special functions, so you can have up to a total of
23 apartments using the TT33-2 alone. If your system has
more apartments you may add the following parts (one for
each entry) which will extend the matrix by giving you more
numeric connections. Please refer to the chart below.

The IC2 Database Chip
The QwikBus™ system has 8 pin nonvolatile IC chips located on the back of each TSMB3
Speaker Microphone Module (in the Modular style Entry Panels) or TT33-2 Speaker
Microphone Module (in the Custom style Entry Panels). Each unit has this chip which
maintains the programming for that specific entry.
If you have to replace a TSMB3 or TT33-2 unit, you can remove
the IC2 from the old unit and install it into the new unit so you do
not have to reprogram that entrance. When doing this
replacement, be sure to install it in the correct polarity indicated
by the mark on the chip.
PROGRAMMING SECTION for OPEN VOICE STYLE
NOTE: Depending on your choice of Entry Panel, you will either be using a TT33-2 or TSMB3
Module. The TT33-2 and the TSMB3 will both be referred to in this section as the
