Chapter 1
Application Information
1.1 Description
The SP4 Telephone Zone Controller (SP4-TZC) controls the zone paging capability of the SAFEPATH®4
Multi-Function Facility Communications System. It is used in conjunction with the SP40 and the SP4-APS
(SP4 Addressable Paging Splitter). Audio Boosters SPB-80/4, SPB-160, and SPB-320 can be used in
conjunction with the SP40. Each audio booster can use additional SP4-APS splitters, increasing the number of
possible paging zones.
The SP4-APS splitter in conjunction with the SP4-TZC allows the End User to make audio zone specific
telephone pages and/or have audio zone specific Background Music (BGM) on a Wheelock SAFEPATH®4
Multi-Function Facility Communications System. This can occur as long as the system is not broadcasting a
pre-recorded message or when the live microphone is in use. The selective paging and BGM functions are
controlled by the SP4-TZC over a RS-485 based digital control network. It also provides a means for
expanding one supervised audio output zone to 4 CLASS “B” or 2 CLASS “A” supervised zones. The
maximum number of CLASS “B” zones in a system is 68. The maximum number of CLASS “A” zones in a
system is 34.
The SP4-TZC can be used with or without the SP4 Telzone Programmer 2 software. The features available
without using the software include the use of Individual Zones and Fixed Zone Groups for Zone Paging, and
Background Music on all zones. When using the SP4 Telzone Programmer 2 software additional features
include Logical Zone Group paging, disabling of Zone Paging (All-Call Paging), user programmable Zone
Setup options, and customization of Individual Zones for Background Music.
An Individual Zone is one of the individual outputs from an SP4-APS splitter. The SP4-APS splitter can
produce either 2 CLASS “A” or 4 CLASS “B” zones.
A Fixed Zone Group consists of 2 CLASS “A” or 4 CLASS “B” zones on each SP4-APS splitter. For example,
if the first SP4-APS splitter is used to cover the zones in the warehouse area the Fixed Zone Group for that area
can be paged by keying the two digit Zone Code “71” on the paging phone. The Zone Codes for Fixed Zone
Groups are 71 through 87 with each Zone Code matching the order of the splitters.
When used with the SP4 Telzone Programmer 2 software, the SP4-TZC in conjunction with the SP4-APS
splitter is capable of programming up to 9 Logical Zone Groups for audio paging. A Logical Zone Group
consists of 1 to 5 Individual Zones and/or Fixed Zone Groups. It can also program any Individual Zone for
Background Music. The two digit Zone Code for the Logical Zone Groups are “91” through “99”.
Paging an Individual Zone, a Fixed Zone Group, or a Logical Zone Group is accomplished using a touch-tone
phone connected to a page port or a touch-tone stand-alone phone. The paging telephone is connected to the
SP4-TZC allowing it to key Zone Codes each consisting of two-digit DTMF tones. See Table 1 for the dialing
scheme. Any Individual Zone or Fixed Zone Group that is not known by the system will result in a no page
condition and the SP4-TZC will start the paging process over.
The SP4 Telzone Programmer 2 software is the second major release of the software, that is designed to operate
with an SP4-TZC having firmware version 2.xx. It is NOT backwards compatible with an SP4-TZC having
firmware version 1.xx. For SP4-TZC's having firmware version 1.xx, version 1.x.x.x of the SP4 Telzone
Programmer software must be used to ensure proper operation.

Note: Zone Code is the splitter zone DTMF tone.
All splitters must use the same CLASS of wiring (CLASS “A” or “B”) for the audio output zones. See the SP4APS Installation Instructions (P84577) for proper wiring.
Individual Zone and Fixed Zone Group Zone Codes are controlled by the placement of the splitters in the
RS485 digital communication circuit. The first splitter connected to the RS485 digital control port on the SP4TZC will be assigned the first Zone Codes (Individual Zone Codes of “01” and “02” for CLASS “A”,
Individual Zone Codes of “01” through “04” for CLASS “B”, and a Fixed Zone Group Code of “71”). Using
the previous example where the first splitter covers the warehouse area, let’s add a second splitter covering the
front office area. If the paging zones are set for CLASS “A” then the warehouse will have Individual Zone
Codes of “01” and “02”. The front office area Individual Zone Codes will be “03” and “04”. The Fixed Zone
Group Code for the warehouse will be “71”, and the front office Fixed Zone Group Code will be “72”

2.5.4 Testing the SAFEPATH® 4 Multi-Function Facility
Communications System Paging Function
In the “factory default” configuration, the paging function will only allow Individual Zones and Fixed Zone
Groups to operate. Background Music will be broadcast on all Individual Zones. In order to program Logical
Zone Groups and edit the Individual Zones for Background Music the SP4 Telzone Programmer 2 software
must be used. The installation and use of the SP4 Telzone Programmer 2 software is described in Chapter 3.
19
STEP 1
Calculate the number of Individual Zones available. The number of Individual CLASS “B” Zones
available equals the number of SP4-APS splitters times 4. The number of Individual CLASS “A”
Zones equals the number of SP4-APS splitters times 2.
CLASS x (# of SP4-APS splitters) = # of Individual Zones Available
Where Class Equals
Class “A” = 2
Class “B” = 4
Examples:
If I had 12 SP4-APS splitters, in order to calculate the number of CLASS “B” zones I would multiply the
number of splitters by 4. The result would be 48 Individual Zones.
In order to calculate the number of CLASS “A” zones, I would multiply the number of splitters by 2. The result
would be 24 Individual Zones.
STEP 2
Test each Individual Zone and each Fixed Zone Group as follows:
•
Pick up the telephone and connect to the SP4-TZC Zone Controller.
You will hear – Access Tone (500 milliseconds ON)
Audio Output – None
•
Key the 2 digit Zone Code for the desired Individual Zone or Fixed Zone Group.
You will hear – Page Ready Tone (500 milliseconds ON)
Audio Output – Selected Individual Fixed Zone or Individual Fixed Zone Group will hear
the alert tone if enabled as described in Section 2.5.1.
NOTE: If an invalid or unused 2 digit Zone Code is entered the operator will hear 3 short tones (100
milliseconds ON and 100 milliseconds OFF) followed by 1 long tone (500 milliseconds ON). The long tone
indicates that the paging system has been reset allowing you to enter another Zone Code. There is no audio
output when an invalid or unused Zone Code is entered.
•
Make the announcement.
Audio Output – Message will be broadcast to the selected Individual Zone or Fixed Zone
Group.
NOTE: When paging, Background Music will be muted on all zones.
•
STEP 3
At the conclusion of the page, simply hang-up the telephone handset. Background Music will
automatically be restored.
Replace the front cover of the SP4-TZC Zone Controller using the 4 screws to hold the cover in
place. See Figure 4 for details.
The SAFEPATH®4 Multi-Function Facility Communications System Paging Function is ready for
operation.

Chapter 3
SP4 Telzone Programmer 2 Software
3.1 About the SP4 Telzone Programmer 2 Software
The SP4 Telzone Programmer 2 software is the second major release of the software, that is designed to operate
with an SP4-TZC having firmware version 2.xx. It is NOT backwards compatible with an SP4-TZC having
firmware version 1.xx. For SP4-TZC's having firmware version 1.xx, version 1.x.x.x of the SP4 Telzone
Programmer software must be used to ensure proper operation.
The SP4 Telzone Programmer 2 software is used to modify SP4-TZC Zone Paging system settings and options,
and to customize the Individual Zones for Background Music (BGM). Communication with the SP4-TZC is
achieved via the USB port of the host computer.
By default, Zone Paging is enabled, in which case Individual Zone, Fixed Zone Group, and Logical Zone Group
paging can be carried out. A maximum of 9 Logical Zone Groups can be programmed using the SP4 Telzone
Programmer software. Each can combine up to five Individual Zones and/or Fixed Zone Groups.
Zone Paging can be disabled by using the software, in which case the paging system reverts to only All-Call
paging.
Also, Individual Zones can be selected or deselected for Background Music (BGM) using the SP Telzone
Programmer software.
The SP4 Telzone Programmer 2 folder containing the files, is located on the hard drive of the computer in the
“Program Files” Folder, in the folder labeled “Cooper Wheelock”.
Refer to the following table for compatibility between the SP4-TZC and SP4 Telzone Programmer software
