Description and
Specifications
1.1
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The SSA-424 Dual Digital Hybrid intervaces two, 2wire intercom lines to two, 4-wire intercom lines.
Unlike earlier analog hybrids, the SSA-424 features
advanced digital signal processing to achieve
automatic nulling of the 2-wire lines. Plus, each
hybrid features convenient peak-reading level
meters to quickly match the levels between the lines
that are being interfaced. The result is easy and
accurate setup. With the SSA-424, all need for test
tones, nulling adjustments and ducking adjustments
have been eliminated.
Compatible 2-wire intercom systems include RTS™
TW, Audiocom®, and Clear-Com®. Compatible 4wire intercom systems include Telex’s ADAM™,
ADAM™CS, and Zeus™ Digital Matrix Intercom
Systems.
The SSA-424 is also available with optional call
signal interfacing. This option provides bidirectional
call signal compatibility between the 2-wire and 4wire intercom systems.
With features like digital signal processing, peakreading level meters and optional call signal interfacing, the SSA-424 Dual Digital Hybrid assures ease
of setup and maximum transparency between
intercom systems.
1.2 GENERAL FEATURES
Two Independent Hybrids: Interface two separate
2-wire lines to two separate 4-wire lines.
Direct ADAM/Zeus Audio Connection: Accepts
standard ADAM/Zeus DB9 or RJ11 keypanel cables.
Transformer Isolated: All audio inputs and outpus
are transformer isolated to prevent ground loops and
hum.
Call Signal Option: Detects call signals from any of
the compatible 2-wire intercom systems, and then
provides a +5VDC output to the 4-wire intercom
system. Accepts a contact closure input from the 4wire system and converts it to the call signal format
required by the 2-wire system. The SSA-424 can be
directly connected to an ADAM, ADAM CS, or Zeus
GPI (General Purpose Interface). GPI inputs can be
programmed to activate call signals and audio paths
to any of the available types of communication within
the 4-wire system, including intercom ports, camera
ISO circuits, IFB circuits, etc. GPI outputs can be set
up to place calls only from a specific keypanel within
the 4-wire system, or from any keypanel within the 4wire system that wishes to call the 2-wire system.
Half-rack Wide, 1RU High: Two SSA-424’s fit into a
single rack space. Compatible with RTS TW rack
mount hardware. Can be mixed with other TW
equipment.
Universal Power Pack: Ready for worldwide use.
Automatically accepts any mains voltage from 100250 VAC, 50/60 Hz. Power pack equipped with
locking DIN connector for attachment to the SSA424.
Automatic Nulling: Digital hybrids eliminate all
nulling and ducking adjustments. Quick, trouble-free
setup. Puts an end to concerns about echo and
feedback when interfacing 2-wire lines.

There is a power ON/OFF and call indicator at the left
of the front panel. This indicator lights continuously
when the SSA-424 is turned on and flashes when an
incoming call signal is detected. The remainder of
the front panel is divided into controls and indicators
for the two separate hybrids, labeled SYSTEM A and
SYSTEM B. For each hybrid, there is a 10-segment,
peak reading level meter to display the 4-wire output
level (TO 4W). There is a recessed level set control
to the left of the 4-wire meter (LEVEL SET) and there
is also a recessed, 5-position range select control for
the 4-wire output (4W LEVEL REF SEL). Under the
4-wire meter, is an identical meter for the 2-wire
output level, and there is a recessed level set control
for the 2-wire output to the left of the meter. Under
the 2-wire meter, there is a recessed, 5-position
selector. The selector has two OFF positions for
when no 2-wire input is connected. The three
remaining switch positions select the 2-wire system
as follows: position 1 selects RTS TW channel 1;
position 2 selects RTS TW channel 2 or a Clear-Com
channel; the BAL position selects an Audiocom
balanced channel. There are 3 LED indicators to
display the current selection (2W CHAN SEL).
1.3.2
BACK PANEL
The power pack connector is located at the right end
of the back panel. This is a locking DIN connector.
The remainder of the back panel is divided into
connectors for the two separate hybrids. Connectors
are labeled with “J” numbers followed fy “A” or “B” to
indicate system A or system B. For each hybrid,
there is an AUX connector. This is used to connect
to/from the optional call signal card. Below the AUX
connector, there are both a DB9F connector and an
RJ11 connector for 4-wire intercom connection.
These are directly compatible with standard ADAM/
Zeus keypanel cables. Next to the 4-wire connectors,
there is a 3-pin female XLR audio connectorfor
connection to the 2-wire intercom system. The pinout of this connector is determined by the position of
the TW CHAN SEL control on the front panel.

MOUNTING
Place the SSA-424 on a desktop, or install it in an
equipment rack using an RTS MCP Rack Mount Kit.
Several rack mount options are available (Figure2,
page 8). There are no special ventilation requirements for the SSA-424, but allow for ventilation
around the power pack.
✏ If the SSA-424 has the call signal option, the
power indicator flashes whenever a call
signal is received from either 2-wire line, and
activity on the level display helps to indicate
which line is calling. If the SSA-424 is
positioned near the 4-wire operator, this can
be used as an incoming call indication for the
4-wire system, if desired (although other
methods are available as described in
paragraph 2.5).
✏ You may wish to read about the internal
mode DIP switches before mounting the
SSA-424. For further information, see Mode
Switch Settings, page 16.

RTS TW AUDIO CONNECTIONS
1 Use standard TW intercom cables. Note, standard TW system cables can carry either one or
two channels, while each hybrid in the SSA-424
can only interface one TW channel to one 4-wire
channel (which channel is determined by the
front panel 2W CHAN SEL switch). If your TW
system cable is only carrying one channel, or if
you only need to connect one of two channels,
connect directly to J1A (System A) or J1B
(System B). If you TW system cable is carrying
two channels, and you want to connect both, use
a TW-5W or similar device as shown in Fig. 3.
✏ The SSA-424 features internal DC isolation.
You can therefore connect the SSA-424 to
powered TW cables, and it will not draw any
power from the TW system.
2 On the SSA-424 front panel: For each hybrid
(System A or System B) set the 2W CHAN SEL
switch to the appropriate position. To interface to
TW channel 1, select position 1; for TW channel
2, select position 2.
✏ If the System A or System B hybrid will not
be used, set its 2W CHAN SEL switch to
either OFF position.
AUDIOCOM AUDIO CONNECTION
1 You can directly connect standard Audiocom 1channel cables. Connect one Audiocom channel
to the J1A connector on the back of the SSA-424
(System A). Connect a second Audiocom
channelto the J1B connector (System B). If your
Audiocom system uses 2-channel cables, use a
JB-2 Junction Box to split the channels (Figure
4).
✏ The SSA-424 features internal DC isolation.
You cn therefore connect the SSA-424 to
powered Audiocom cables, and it will not
draw any power from the Audiocom system.
2 On the SSA-424 front panel, set the 2W CHAN
SEL switches for System A and System B to the
BAL position.
✏ If the System A or System B hybrid will not
be used, set its 2W CHAN SEL switch to
either OFF position.

2.5.2
CALL SIGNAL CONNECTIONS FOR OTHER 4WIRE COMMUNICATON SYSTEMS
2.5.2.1 4-WIRE CALL SEND AND CALL ENABLE/INHIBIT
The SSA-424 accepts a switch-contact input from the
4-wire system and then generates a call signal output
to the 2-wire system. The SSA-424 also accepts an
optional switch contact input to enable or inhibit call
signaling between the 4-wire and 2-wire systems.
Figure 6 shows the typical connections.

2.5.2.2 4-WIRE CALL RECEIVE
The SSA-424 receives call signals from the 2-wire
system, then converts this to relay contact closure for
use as a 4-wire call receive indication. The SSA-424
also provides +5 VDC which can be connected to the
relay contacts to generate a DC output signal instead
of a contact closure. Connections for simple contact
closure and DC output signal are shown in Figure 7.
✏ The SSA-424 power indicator flashes
whenever a call signal is received from either
2-wire line. This can be used as an incoming
call indication for the 4-wire system, if
desired, and the level display should provide
an indication of which line is calling.

CALL SIGNAL CONNECTIONS FOR AUDIOCOM,
RTS TW AND CLEAR-COM
The call signals are superimposed on the audio
signal, so no separate call signal connections are
required. However, make sure that a call enable
switch or jumper is installed for Clear-Com applications as shown in Figures 5 and 6.
2.6.2
CALL SIGNAL CONNECTIONS FOR OTHER 2WIRE COMMUNICATION SYSTEM
Any other 2-wire device must be able to generate
and receive a 20kHz signal superimposed on the

Operation
3.1
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
1 Attach the power pack to the SSA-424, and apply
power to all components. Confirm that the power
indicator is lit on the SSA-424 front panel.
2 The power indicator flashes when a call signal is
received fron a 2-wire line. The SSA-424 level
displays should help to confirm which line is
calling.
3 Use the level adjust trimmers (Figure 8) to fine
adjust the listen levels.
✏ For 4-wire systems other than ADAM, ADAM
CS, and Zeus, you may have to change the
setting of the 4W LEVEL REF SEL control to
establish the correct level. For 2-wire
systems other than Audiocom, TW, and
Clear-Com, you may have to adjust the level
at the 2-wire system if you cannot establish
the correct level with the 2-wire listen level
trimmers.

OPERATING NOTES FOR ADAM, ADAM
CS, AND ZEUS INTERCOM SYSTEMS
Another solution is to assign a dedicated key as
a UPL resource key (which you could name
CALL). Then for each key that talks to an SSA424 hybrid, create a UPL statement that will
activate (assert) the appropriate GPI whenever
the call key AND the talk key are pressed. This
lets you use the same call key with more than
one GPI. To use this, you simply activate the call
key and the appropriate talk key. Then, when a
verbal response is received, release the call key.
4 Optional call signal input using the GPI
A. In AZedit, click GPI In on the toolbar.
This opens the GPI Setup screen.
B. Whichever GPI Input you are using for 4-wire
call receive, select that GPI input from the list
(double-click). This will open the Edit GPI
Input window.
C. In the Port Alpha list box, select the intercom
port that you named in step 1.
D. In the Key Number box, type 1. This selects
key 1 at the intercom port that you selected
in step C.
E. Select Talk Key.
F. Click Done.
G. Access keypanel setup, and select the same
intercom port that you selected in step C.
H. Make sure the setup page Main is selected.
I. Assign talk key number 1 to talk to the
intercom port that you setup in step 2. We
also recommend that you assign auto-listen
(AL) to the listen key above that talk key.
2 Key assignment, party line assignment, etc. is
the same as for any other intercom port.
5 Optional call enable control. If you connected a
GPI output for use as a call enable control, you
can assign that GPi output to any intercom key in
the 4-wire intercom system. If System A is
connected to an Audiocom or TW intercom
system, pressing the key will disable call signaling. (However, the effect is the opposite if a
Clear-Com system is connected: pressing the
key will disable the signaling.)
3 Optional call signal output using the GPI: ou can
assign the GPI output to a talk or listen key, then
activate that key to generate a call signal.
6 Send your changes to the intercom system. This
completes any required programming for ADAM,
ADAM CS, or Zeus intercom system.
1 In AZedit use port alpha setup to name each 4wire intercom port that is connected to the SSA424. Choose names which help indicate which
2-wire line is being interfaced.
Another way to generate a call signal is by
assigning the GPI output as a level 2 talk key
assignment for any key that is assigned to talk to
the SSA-424. However, this will cause the call
lights to flash on the 2-wire line during the entire
conversation.

Configuration 2, Switched Full Duplex Mode:
Switches from half duplex to full duplex 3-9
seconds after conversation begins on the 4wire line. Stays in full duplex mode until 6090 seconds after conversation ceases. This
helps to keep the line quiet during perdiods of
no conversation, while permitting natural
conversation when people are talking. This is
the preferred operating mode for many
situations, and par ticularly for fast, closecoordination, team operations.
