Battery Backup
The COMPACT can be supplied by a battery (22 - 28V DC) which automatically cuts
in when the mains fails.
Connect the terminals of the battery to the + and -.
4.4
Mains Fail Indicator
The COMPACT can provide a supply for a Mains Fail buzzer of indicator
Page 6 of 18

The “mf” pin is pulled down to 0V when a mains failure occurs (provided battery
backup is being used). Connect a 24V indicator or buzzer between “mf” and “Vol
Restore +” (24V).
4.5
Volume Restoration
Volume Restoration allows the use of volume controls within speakers or within a
room. These incorporate relays which bypass the volume control on live broadcast
and broadcast at the tapped volume. Each zone has a “Volume Restore” output.
The “Volume Restore” pin is pulled down to 0V when that particular zone is called.
Connect the volume restoration relay between the relevant zone pin and “Vol Restore

Operation
Select the zones by pressing the latching 1, 2, 3 buttons. Note that the zones are

The Indicator will blink fast to show that the chime is being broadcast
When the indicator is on continuously, speak clearly into the microphone
Releasing the CALL button returns the COMPACT to its’ standby state.
Re-press the Zone selection buttons to de-select the zone
If, during a broadcast, a higher priority microphone is used, the lower priority unit is
cut off and the indicator blinks fast.
The lower priority microphone will continue to broadcast to any zones NOT selected
by the higher priority unit. However, the lower priority user will not know which zones
are being over-ridden.

Dual Channel (2 x 60W)
The COMPACT is a Dual-channel system allowing announcements to some zone(s)
whilst maintaining music to other zones music AND with 60W output per channel
(factory setting).
IMPORTANT; All the speaker zones when added together must not exceed 60W.
Single Channel (120W)
The COMPACT can be configured to provide a single channel of 120W which cuts
the music to all zones when a live broadcast is made.
IMPORTANT; All the speaker zones when added together must not exceed 120W.

Decide on Music zones
The COMPACT can be configured to provide music to any combination of zones
(factory setting is all zones to receive music).
To disable music to any zone remove the “music to zone” jumper as the table below.
Decide on the output impedance.
Fit the links from the table below according to the impedance of the output load.
IMPORTANT; The calls and music to any particular zone MUST have the same
output impedance jumper fitted.

Line output configuration
If the Music input is NOT USED and is turned down, then the Compact can be
configured for 120W and Zone 1 load increased to 120W. ( fit jumpers J20/J21 as
usual for 120W )
If the Music input is required the Compact should be jumpered internally for Dual
channel 2x60W operation.
No connections should be made to the normal Zones 2 and 3 outputs on the Compact.
Amplifiers to drive zones 2 and 3 should be driven from the line-level (0dB) outputs on
the compact add-on line output card .
It is possible to disable background music only on the zone 1 output.
Because external amplifiers are used to drive Zones 2 and 3, the music jumpers have
no effect on background music to zones 2 and 3, i.e. Music is always enabled to these
externally powered zones.
