Background noise permitting, the TBM-101 will service up to 1000 square feet. See Figure 1 and Chart 1 for
relation between noise and maximum reply distance. The direction of speech is controlled by the calling party
(at the telephone), to prevent false switching of speech direction due to background noise.
CAUTION: These Devices Are Not Intended For Use In Hazardous Locations As Defined By The National Electrical
Code (NEC) And By The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Contact Wheelock Inc. for Information On
Explosion-Proof Devices Designed For Hazardous Locations.

Talkback/Paging Connections & Applications
*NOTES:
1.
2.
3.
Wheelock's TBM-101 Talkback Module may be connected to a 600 ohm low power audio page port if
the page port allows two-way audio. Check with telephone system manufacturer.
If unused CO port requires talk battery to pass audio (most do), then install using a Wheelock RPS2406 power supply as shown in Figure 3. For multi-zone applications, a Wheelock Zone Control is
required as an interface.
Denotes optional "inhibit" wires. Disconnects (inhibits) Talkback when an all page is initiated.
Applicable only when TBM-101 is used with Wheelock Zone Controls. Use "INH. GND (+)" only when
TBM-101 and Zone Control are using separate power supplies.

PRIVACY LED INDICATOR OPERATION:
A.
B.
When connected to Wheelock's ZC-3 Zone Control Module, the Privacy LED illuminates when the
TBM-101 is in the listen mode.
When connected directly to an unused CO port:
- The LED will be illuminated when the TBM-101 is in the idle state. Occasional flicker of the
LED is normal (caused by sudden noise).
- When in the two-way communication (hands free talkback) mode, the privacy LED will be
illuminated only when in the listen mode.
