INTRODUCTION
The V-2901A, Universal Door Answering System,
when used with Valcom Doorplate Speakers,
provides voice paging with handsfree reply to a door
from any telephone location. The V-2901A initiates
ring-in on the telephone system and sends a
confirmation tone to the door speaker. The individual
at the phone responding to the signal will determine if
access should be allowed. Pressing a programmed
code on the telephone dialpad or pressing the remote
button will unlock the door to allow admission. The
V-2901A also provides an alarm control output to
alert an alarm system of an unauthorized entry.

* A single line telephone cannot be connected to
both the V-2901A and an incoming central office
line.
INSTALLATION
** It is recommended that one talkback speaker
be used. Use of more than one talkback speaker
may result in damage to the V-2901A. Up to 40
one-way amplified speakers may be connected to
the V-2901A speaker output.
Cabling
A 25 pair cable with a female amphenol connector
should be run from the V-2901A to a 66 block. The
cables should be terminated on the connecting block
in standard color code. Refer to Figure 2 - Block
Connections for the pinout locations.
DESIGN
The V-2901A, Universal Door Answering System,
was designed to provide voice paging with handsfree
reply to a door speaker from a telephone location.
The
V-2901A initiates ring-in on the telephone
system and sends a confirmation tone to the door
when a button is pressed at the door (Valcom
doorplate speakers are normally used in this
application). The individual at the phone responding
to the signal can converse with the person at the door
and determine if access should be allowed. If the
door is equipped with an electric strikeplate, the
person at the phone can enter a programmed code on
the telephone dialpad or press a remote button to
unlock the door to allow admission. A call to the
door may also be initiated from the telephone system.
The V-2901A provides an alarm control output for
unauthorized entry. When the door lock relay is
activated and the door remains open longer than the
programmed period of time, a ground potential will
appear on pin 3 of the V-2901A (unauthorized door
opening) that can be used to signal a customer
provided alarm, auto dialer, etc. Also, if the phone is
on hook, the phone will begin ringing in a single
burst pattern. If the phone is off hook, it will receive
a momentary warble tone. After hang-up, if the door
is not closed, the alarm condition will continue.
Mounting
The V-2901A is designed to be wall or shelf
mounted. When wall mounting the V-2901A, secure
the unit to wall studs or a suitable brace, away from
heat sources or strong magnetic fields (motors, fans,
power supplies, etc.) with controls and connectors
accessible. (A plywood backboard two feet square
and at least 1/2 inch thick attached to wall studs
would be considered a suitable brace).
Four #10 x 3/4 inch flat-head wood screws are
included for mounting. Fasten two screws on the
mounting surface, allowing them to protrude 1/8 inch
to 1/4 inch. Place the chassis of the V-2901A onto
the screwheads at the mounting slots. Position the
remaining screws and fasten through the remaining
mounting slots. Tighten screws.
Connections
Mount a 66 block on the backboard near the
V-2901A Universal Door Answering System and
label the block per Figure 2.
Move slide switch SW2 on the V-2901A to the
appropriate location, Loop or Ground Start, (see
Figure 3) depending on how the V-2901A is
accessed.
When indication arrives that a door is open while
door station is inactive, such as a break-in, the system
waits the programmed period of time (entry delay
time) for a confirmation of entry indicating the
opening as legitimate. When this does not arrive in
the programmed time frame or if it arrives and the
door is not closed at the end of the programmed time
period, an alarm will sound in the same manner as
described above.
The V-2901A also provides a background music
input and is designed to automatically mute music
during a page. If background music is to be installed,
a low level music source such as the Valcom V-2952
FM Tuner will be required.
Applications for the V-2901A includes a doorway,

If a modular cord is used for Tip and Ring
connections, start at step ONE. For 66 block
connections start at step TWO.
___ 1.
Connect one end of the modular cord to the
V-2901A RJ11 and the other end to the
appropriate line position of the phone
system. Go to step 3.
___ 2.
Connect Tip of the key system line position,
loop or ground start trunk, to Pin 26 (W/BL)
and Ring to Pin 1 (BL/W).
___ 3.
Connect Tip of a 45 Ohm talkback speaker
to pin 32 (R/O) and Ring to pin 7 (O/R).
___ 4.
If using a door button with the talkback
speaker, connect normally open, single pole
push-button switch to Door Button
connection pin 33 (R/G) and pin 9 (BR/R)
Ground. (Figure 5 depicts the speaker/door
button hookup).
___ 5.
Move slide switch SW1 (located on the
V-2901A board) to the ON position if the
telephone system is to ring when the door
button is pressed. (Refer to Figure 3 for
location).
___ 6.
NOTE: If the remote button does not
respond, you have most likely entered a
confirmation press. Any immediate
additional presses will result in an alarm
condition.
Handsfree Indicator ("Station
Outputs")
Connect the -24VDC power supply. 24VDC should be connected to pin 25 (S/V)
and Ground connected to pin 50 (V/S). The
power LED located on the V-2901A board
should illuminate.
Battery Backup
A Valcom VPB-260 Battery Backup may be added to
the system to provide power in case of power failure.
The VPB-260 plugs directly into the V-2901A.
Figure 4 shows the appropriate connection. The
VPB-260 should be allowed to charge for
approximately 9 hours before operating the V-2901A.
The Valcom VPB-260 battery backup may be
used as the sole supply of power to the V-2901A.
The V-2901A supplies connections to allow a
handsfree indicator to be connected to the system.
During handsfree communication, pin 6 goes to
-24VDC when connected as shown in Figure 8.
Maximum current available is 50mA.
Door Sensor
When this contact is shorted (opening the door, gate
etc) without a legitimate dialpad or remote key press
opening, this will initiate an alarm condition. Refer
to Figure 9 for typical connections.
Unauthorized Door Opening
During an alarm state, UDO (unauthorized door
opening) goes to ground, to signal a customer
provided alarm that an alarm condition exists. Refer
to Figure 10 for typical connections.
Remote Signaling (Alerting Device)
The V-2901A supplies contacts to allow an alerting
device to be connected to the system. These contacts
follow the ringing cycle (except when using British
Ring - see note page 8) and can be used to operate a
remote signaling device such as a bell, buzzer or
light. Refer to Figure 11 for a typical connection
using these contacts.
Remote Door Unlock Relay
Figure 6 shows the V-2901A contact arrangement
available for electric strike plate operation.
Before connecting an electric lock to the V-2901A,
consult the manufacturer instructions for the proper
connecting arrangement.
Background Music Connections
Connect the low level (-10dBm nominal) output of a
music source to pin 29 (W/BR) and pin 4 (BR/W) of
the 66 block. Adjust output of the music source to a
low level. Volume of the background music will be
regulated by the music volume control of the V2901A.
Remote Push-button for Manual Door
Release
A momentary, normally open, single-pole,
single-throw switch can be connected to the system.
Pinouts to the 66 block are shown in Figure 7. Refer
to manufacturer instructions for proper connections.
The remote button should be placed in an
inconspicuous location to provide a more secure
system.

2. Press # 1 2 3 # 0 1.
3. Press # and receive dial tone.
OPERATION
When the doorplate button is pressed, interrupted ring
voltage from the V-2901A initiates ring-in on the
telephone system and sends a confirmation tone to the
door. When the phone is answered, the ringing is
removed, the phone receives a ringback tone and is
connected to the handsfree speaker.
If the door is equipped with an electric strikeplate, a
code can be dialed from the phone to operate the
relay used to unlock the door. The lock relay will
remain open for a programmed period of time. A
normally open, single-pole push-button switch can
also be connected to the V-2901A to manually
operate the door unlock relay. The lock relay will
remain open as long as the remote button is held
(maximum 99 seconds) plus the programmed period
of time.
A confirmation press or entering the unlock code via
telephone to signify a legitimate door opening must
take place before the programmed period of time ends
or an alarm condition will occur.
NOTE: The remote button can be used for a
confirmation press or to activate the lock relay
(door unlock).
Exiting without Alarm Activation
1. Lift handset and enter door unlock code or press
manual door unlock push-button.
2. Exit door within the programmed exit delay time.
Exit delay time equals time door unlock relay is
activated after unlock.
