DC-8 Plus Installation and Operation Manual
INSTALLING THE DC-8 PLUS
Please examine your DC-8 Plus carefully for any damage that may have been sustained during shipping. If any is noted, please notify the shipper immediately and
retain the packaging for inspection by the shipper. The package should contain the
DC-8 Plus, 16.5 Vac @ 600 ma wall power transformer and this manual and modular cable.
CAUTION!
For safety, do NOT
connect 120VAC circuits to the RELAYS.
Before permanently installing the DC-8 Plus, we recommend that you connect the
unit to the wall transformer, telephone line and telephone set and become familiar
with the operation of the unit. Please refer to the programming and operation section of this manual. If the DC-8 Plus is to share the phone line with a modem, the
purchase of a Voice/Data switch may be in order. The modem should be connected
to the modem port, while the DC-8 Plus should attach to the voice or TAD port.
These units are under $60.00 at Office Max/Depot.
NOTE: Installation of the DC-8 Plus in high RF environments should be
performed with care. Shielded cable is suggested for all connections.
Shields and station ground should be tied to the CHASSIS GROUND screw
located on the far right side of the DC-8 Plus, as viewed from the rear. It is
recommended that all cables connected to the DC-8 Plus be looped through
ferrite cores to suppress RF. Surge protection with RF filtering such as
the Tripp-Lite “ISOBAR ” or equivalent is also suggested for the power
transformer, while the Tripp-Lite DTEL-2 is very effective for the telephone line. The purchase of an inexpensive uninterruptible power supply (UPS) will provide back up in case of power outages.
The connection of the DC-8 Plus to a standard telephone line or cellular telephone
with the appropriate interface is through the RJ-11 jack located at the far left side of
the unit, as viewed from the rear. This jack is labeled "Line" and should be connected to the incoming phone line. The recessed second RJ-11 jack labeled "Phone"
is for the connection of a touch-tone® telephone, used to program or operate the DC8 Plus when in the LOCAL mode. The DC-8 Plus is supplied with a 16 to 18 volt @
600 ma AC wall style transformer, connection from the wall transformer is made on
the far right hand side of the unit, labeled P1. Connections on the DC-8 Plus are via
screw style wire captive terminals located at the rear of the unit. Connections to the
screw style wire captive terminal should be made using 20 AWG or smaller solid or
stranded wire. Strip off approximately 7/16" insulation from the connection end of
the wire, insert the bare wire end into the opening of the desired terminal and tighten the locking screw with a small screw driver. The relays are denoted as K1
through K8. K1 and K2 are 2PDT relays, while K3 through K8 are SPDT. JP1 is
provided to tie K1 and K2 together. The normally open contact is noted as NO. The
normally closed contact is labeled NC and the wiper (common) is denoted as CM.
This convention holds true for all eight relays. The three open collector outputs
(ground sink) are rated at 24 vdc @ 60 ma and are diode protected. The collectors
are available at each labeled terminal, while the emitters are tied to DGND.

DC-8 Plus Installation and Operation Manual
Each “STATUS / PAGER ALERT” and BUSY input is provided with two terminals,
a ground terminal labeled “DGND” and input terminal labeled (IN-# / BUSY).
These terminals may be connected to any pair of switch contacts, such as external
relays, switches, open-collector circuits or 5-volt logic signals.
All inputs have the same common. This common is not connected to the powermain ground since the AC wall transformer is isolated; however, the input common
is internally connected to the circuit ground and the aluminum enclosure of the DC8 Plus via a parallel .01 uf cap and 10 ohm resistor.
A chassis ground screw is provided at the rear far right side of the chassis.
Audio connections on the DC-8 Plus are labeled "Out-", "Out +", "In-", "In+", “Aux-“,
“Aux+, DL In and DL Out”. Shields may be tied to the “EGND” terminal. The audio
input is labeled TEL - and TEL + and is active balanced and accepts levels from -10
to +24dbu. The send level may be adjusted from the front panel, while this input may
be turned on and off via touchtone commands.
The balanced output terminals are always active and labeled OUT – and OUT +. The
front panel level control has a range of +4 dbu to OFF.
The balanced Auxiliary input is labeled AUX – and AUX + and feeds the DTMF
decoder directly and may be adjusted by the “AUX” control on the rear panel. The
telephone hybrid null control (R23) is adjusted on the rear panel.
The terminals labeled DL IN and DL OUT are for the user supplied delay unit.
NOTE: Overloading the send or aux audio inputs, may cause erratic DTMF
operation.
PROGRAMMING AND OPERATION
The Broadcast Tools DC-8 Plus may be operated and programmed either remotely
via telephone, or while the OPERATE/LOCAL switch is depressed. Either way, all
programming and operation is identical. The DC-8 Plus Command Grid and
Programming Commands may be found on pages 9, 10 and 12 of this manual, illustrating the programming and operational functions of the DC-8 Plus. Let’s take a
brief run through of the operation of the DC-8 Plus. Using a touch-tone telephone,
dial into the telephone number attached to the DC-8 Plus. After 3 rings, the DC-8
Plus will answer the line and reply with a "BLEEP". Access to the DC-8 Plus statusmonitoring functions are possible after the access code has been entered (Default
access code *1234). If the correct access code has been entered, the DC-8 Plus will
reply with a DOUBLE "BLEEP". To control and monitor to DC-8 Plus the control
must be entered (Default access code **).
NOTE: The ”MONITORING ” ACCESS CODE is entered as follows: (STAR)
* xxxxxxxx the factory default is *1234

entered as follows: (STAR)* (STAR) * xxxxxxxx The factory default is **
NOTE: When the DC-8 Plus receives a call, the red “RING” LED will light and
the rear panel RING open collector will go low each time the ring signal is
detected.
NOTE: The call will be answered after the user-programmed number of
rings. At this time, the “HOOK” LED will light and the rear panel HOOK open
collector will go low.
NOTE: The DC-8 Plus will hang-up if the following conditions occur:
1 - If more than 1 minute has elapsed before a correct access code is entered.
2 - If no commands are detected for 1 minute. CPC defeated.
3 - If the calling party hangs up.
4 - If command 99* (star) is entered.
CONTROLLING, OR POLLING THE RELAYS
Relays may be selected by entering the appropriate relay number. This command
will produce a relay action for as long as the key is held. If you prefer a latching
contact closure, enter the # (pound) key, the relay number, followed by the * (star)
key. Performing this function will latch the relay into the "on" mode. To unlatch a
relay contact, enter the * (star) key, relay number, and the * (star) key. Performing
this function will return the appropriate relay to an "off" or unlatched mode. If you
have selected the interlock mode, only one relay may be latched at any one time.
After each command, a double bleep will be heard acknowledging completion of the
command. If an error tone (three warbles) is received, re-enter the command. In
order to check the status of any relay, simply press the # (pound) key, followed by
the TWO DIGIT relay number, and the * (star) key. A high tone will be heard if the
relay is closed and a low tone if the relay is open. Follow the format provided with
the DC-8 Plus COMMAND GRID.

product updates and
additional information
NOTE: During a power outage, when power is returned, latched relays will
return to their pre-power outage position.
POLLING THE STATUS INPUTS
In order to check the status of any STATUS / PAGER ALERT input, simply press
the * (star) key, followed by the TWO DIGIT status number, and then the * (star)
key. In the event the status input condition is in a (> + 2.5 vdc) "high" condition, a
high tone will be heard. In a “low” (ground) status condition, a low tone will be
heard. After each command, a double bleep will acknowledge completion of the
command. If an error tone (three warbles) is received, re-enter the command.
Follow the format provided with the DC-8 Plus COMMAND GRID.

DC-8 Plus Installation and Operation Manual
BUSY INPUT
The busy input allows a user to remotely disable the DC-8 Plus from answering a
call. By asserting this input low, no calls will be answered.
PAGER ALERT
The DC-8 Plus includes the ability to call up to THREE outside telephone (pager)
numbers in the event any or all status inputs go "LOW" for 2 seconds or longer. As
shown in the DC-8 Plus Command Grid, the Pager Alert function can be activated
or deactivated by entering 951 * (star), (turns on function), or 950 * (star) (turns off
function). The user may configure any or all of the eight status inputs to trigger a
pager alert, by inserting the desired status input numbers in program 954, i.e. 9541*
(star). (Status input one being asserted low will cause an alert.) In order to program
the first call out telephone number, enter 961, followed by the FIRST telephone
number to a digital pager or other service. Enter 962, followed by the SECOND
telephone number to a digital pager or other service. Enter 963, followed by the
THIRD telephone number to a digital pager or other service. Not all of the pager
need be entered. In the event you would like the call back number to be displayed
on a digital pager, enter 97, followed by the return (call back) number that will display on the pager. The DC-8 Plus will place as the FIRST digit, the FIRST STATUS
/ PAGER ALERT input that caused the ALERT. To provide added reliability, the
DC-8 Plus dials the pager number twice. If your Telephone Company provides
CALLER ID (ANI), this may be a simple way to replace the pager, when using the
pager alert.
NOTE: Any programming (EXCEPT THE ACCESS CODES and DEFAULT
SETTINGS!!) can be performed either in LOCAL mode, (OPERATE/LOCAL
button depressed), or when connected via telephone. Please remember to
DISENGAGE the front panel OPERATE/LOCAL switch, when you are finished
programming the DC-8 Plus.
NOTE: If the DC-8 Plus is left in LOCAL mode, the DC-8 Plus will not answer
incoming calls.
To hang up and return to the stand-by mode, either hang up or enter 99, followed by
the * (star) key.
DC-8 Plus COMMAND GRID
This manual has provided many programming and operational functions of the
Broadcast Tools DC-8 Plus Dial-Up Remote Control. By using the DC-8 Plus
Command Grid, additional programming and operation functions are available to
customize the DC-8 Plus to fit many needs. We hope that like many other users
of Broadcast Tools products, you too will encounter many years of reliable and
versatile use.

The DC-8 Plus is connected to the Silence Monitor III (SM III). When the
Silence Monitor III detects a loss of audio or white noise, the DC-8 Plus
dials the networks auto-coupler and back feeds programming over the
phone line. The DC-8 Plus also controls a 2x1 switcher, which in turn switches
from the Satellite feed to the backup phone line feed via the DC-8 Plus. When normal
Satellite programming is restored, the DC-8 Plus waits 60 seconds, then hangs up
and switches audio back to the Satellite.

The term “Buyer” as used in this document refers to and includes both (but only) (a) any person or entity who acquires such an item for
the purpose of resale to others (i.e., a dealer or distributor of an item), and (b) the first person or entity who acquires such an item for
such person’s or entity’s own use.
Broadcast Tools warrants to each Buyer of any item manufactured by Broadcast Tools that the item will be free from defects in materials and workmanship at the time it is shipped by Broadcast Tools if the item is properly installed, used and maintained.
EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES
If Broadcast Tools is notified, in writing, of a failure of any item manufactured by Broadcast Tools to conform to the foregoing Limited
Warranty within one (1) year following the date of the Buyer’s acquisition of the item, and if the item is returned to Broadcast Tools in
accordance with Broadcast Tools’ instructions for confirmation by inspection of the defect (which at Broadcast Tools’ election may
include, without limitation, a requirement that the Buyer first obtain a Return Authorization number from Broadcast Tools, that the Buyer
furnish proof of purchase in the form of an invoice and/or receipt, and that the Buyer prepay all freight charges associated with any return
of the item to Broadcast Tools using such freight service as Broadcast Tools reasonably may specify), Broadcast Tools will repair or
replace the defective item, or will refund the purchase price paid by the Buyer for the item. Broadcast Tools shall have the exclusive
right to choose between these alternative remedies.
