FCC REGULATIONS
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC Rules. On the top of this equipment is a label that contains, among other information, the FCC
Registration Number and the Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for this equipment. You must, upon request provide this information to your telephone
company.
The REN is also useful to determine the quantity of devices that you may connect to your telephone line and still have all of those devices ring when your
telephone number is called. In most, but not all areas, the sum of the REN's of all devices connected to one line should not exceed five (5.0). To be
certain of the number of devices that you may connect to your line, you may want to contact your local telephone company.
Should the equipment cause harm to the telephone network, the telephone company shall, if possible, notify the customer that temporary discontinuance
of service may be required. However, where prior written notice is not possible, the telephone company may temporarily discontinue service without
notice, if such action is necessary under the circumstances. The telephone company may make changes in its communication facilities, equipment and
operations procedures, where such action is reasonably required in the operation of its business and is not inconsistent with the rules and regulations of
the Federal Communications Commission.
Do not attempt to repair or modify this equipment. Repairs to this product will be performed by Wheelock Inc. 273 Branchport Ave, Long Branch, NJ
07740 in accordance with Wheelock Inc.'s published Terms and Conditions of Sale. This equipment should not be used on coin telephone lines.
Connection to party line service is subject to state tariffs.
If trouble is experienced, disconnect this equipment from the telephone line to determine if it is causing the malfunction. If the equipment is determined
to be malfunctioning, its use shall be discontinued until the problem has been corrected.
APPLICATION INFORMATION
WARNING:
ANY MATERIAL EXTRAPOLATED FROM THIS DOCUMENT OR FROM WHEELOCK MANUALS OR OTHER DOCUMENTS
DESCRIBING THE PRODUCT FOR USE IN PROMOTIONAL OR ADVERTISING CLAIMS, OR FOR ANY OTHER USE,
INCLUDING DESCRIPTION OF THE PRODUCT'S APPLICATION, OPERATION, INSTALLATION AND TESTING IS USED AT
THE SOLE RISK OF THE USER AND WHEELOCK WILL NOT HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR SUCH USE.
The ZC-312 is an expandable Zone Control that performs the central control, switching and signaling required to provide selective zone paging, zone
group paging, all call, talkback, background music mute, and page alert tone signaling. The ZC-312 provides 3 separate zones of paging, and can be
expanded to 12 zones by installing up to 3 ZEM-3 Zone Expansion Modules. Each ZEM-3 provides a zone group consisting of 3 zones. Each ZEM-3
provides a background music input for its 3 zone group.
Containing its own (centralized) talkback control circuit, the ZC-312 can be programmed to accommodate both one-way and talkback paging zones. It
can also be programmed to be used with a wide variety of system amplifier configurations which can include various combinations of 25V/70V central
and zone amplifiers and amplified one-way paging speakers.

The ZC-312 is compatible with most EKSU, KSU (1A2), and PBX telephone systems. It connects to either an unused loop start CO port or a 600 ohm
low power audio page port. When connected to an unused CO port, both DTMF and rotary (pulse) dial telephones may be used to operate the ZC-312.
When connected to a page port, the page port must transmit DTMF tones and provide a dry contact closure. The ZC-312 can also be used in "Ring
Start" applications (CO/Centrex, Station Level), when used with the Wheelock TPI-100 Telephone Paging Interface.
Paging is accessed from any telephone by pressing the CO line button (EKSU & KSU), or dialing the number assigned to paging. Twelve (12) individual
zones are selected by dialing 01 thru 12. All Call is selected by dialing 00. The four (4) zone groups are selected for group paging, by dialing 21 thru 24.
When any zone, zone group, or all call selection is made, a page alert tone will be heard at all the speakers in the selected zone, zone group, or all
zones (if all call is selected). The tone will also be heard at the paging telephone to provide verification of connection to the selected speakers.
The ZC-312 provides one zone group (3 zones) and can be expanded to 4 zone groups (12 zones), by adding up to 3 plug-in ZEM-3 zone expansion
modules as shown in Chart 1 and Figure 1.

The following application diagrams show the seven basic system configurations of the ZC-312 and its companion ZEM-3 Zone Expansion Modules. All
of these configurations are possible with the appropriate programming switch selections. Figures 2, 3, 4, and 5 are typical configurations using central
amplifiers. Figure 6 is a typical configuration using amplified speakers. Figures 7 and 8 are typical configurations using zone amplifiers.

(ONE-WAY PAGING AND/OR TALKBACK)
In this application, the one central amplifier for both paging and background music has music muting and separate inputs (volume controls) for paging
and music. The system uses speakers with built-in line matching transformers for both one-way paging, and paging with talkback.
NOTE
1.
If the central amplifier does not provide music mute, then the background music source is connected as shown in Figure 3.
2.
In systems with talkback paging, install one background music source only as shown. DO NOT connect background music source directly to zone
group music inputs.
