NOTE: This equipment meets the applicable Industry Canada Terminal Equipment
Technical Specifications. This is confirmed by the registration number. The
abbreviations, IC, before the registration number signifies that registration was
performed based on a Declaration of Conformity indicating that Industry Canada
technical specifications were met. It does not imply that Industry Canada approved
the equipment.
NOTE: The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for this terminal equipment is
0.1A. The REN assigned to each terminal equipment provides an indication of the
maximum number of terminals allowed to be connected to a telephone interface. The
termination on an interface may consist of any combination of devices subject only
to the requirement that the sum of the Ringer Equivalence Numbers of all the devices
does not exceed five.
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules and the requirements adopted
by the ACTA. On the bottom of the unit is a label that contains, among other
information, a product identifier in the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. If requested,
this number must be provided to the telephone company.
Applicable connector jack Universal Service Order Codes (“USOC”) for the
Equipment is RJ11C.
A plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and telephone
network must comply with the applicable FCC Part 68 rules and requirements
adopted by the ACTA. A compliant telephone cord and modular plug is provided
with this product. It is designed to be connected to a compatible modular jack that is
also compliant.
The REN is used to determine the number of devices that may be connected to a
telephone line. Excessive RENs on a telephone line may result in the devices not
ringing in response to an incoming call. In most but not all areas, the sum of RENs
should not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number of devices that may be
connected to a line, as determined by the total RENs, contact the local telephone
company. For products approved after July 23, 2001, the REN for this product is part
of the product identifier that has the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. The digits
represented by ## are the REN without a decimal point (e.g., 03 is a REN of 0.3).
If this CEN-TIA causes harm to the telephone network, the telephone company will
notify you in advance that temporary discontinuance of service may be required. But
if advance notice isn't practical, the telephone company will notify the customer as
soon as possible. Also, you will be advised of your right to file a complaint with the
FCC if you believe it is necessary.

Programming with Crestron Toolbox CEN-TIA
Menu Builder
The CEN-TIA Menu Builder tool in Toolbox is required to set up the internal menus,
events and commands that determine how the CEN-TIA responds to your telephone
system (i.e., incoming calls, DTMF inputs from a telephone handset, touchpanel
inputs, etc.). For details about using the CEN-TIA Menu Builder tool, refer to the
Toolbox help file.
Programming with SIMPL Windows
NOTE: While SIMPL Windows can be used to program the CEN-TIA as it relates
to a Crestron network with a control system, it is recommended to use the Toolbox
CEN-TIA Menu Builder for configuring the device.
SIMPL Windows is Crestron’s premier software for programming Crestron control
systems. It is organized into two separate, but equally important “Managers”.
Configuration Manager
Configuration Manager is the view where programmers “build” a Crestron control
system by selecting hardware from the Device Library.
NOTE: The CEN-TIA can be used as both a Cresnet and Ethernet device. As a
Cresnet device, it can simply be added to an appropriate control system such as the
PRO2. As an Ethernet device, it must be added after an Ethernet card such as the
C2ENET-1 is configured into the system.

Uploading and Upgrading
Crestron recommends using the latest programming software and that each device
contains the latest firmware to take advantage of the most recently released features.
However, before attempting to upload or upgrade, it is necessary to establish
communication. Once communication has been established, files (for example,
programs or firmware) can be transferred to the control system (and/or device).
Finally, program checks can be performed (such as changing the device ID or
creating an IP table) to ensure proper functioning.
Establishing Communication
Use Crestron Toolbox for communicating with the CEN-TIA. Refer to the Crestron
Toolbox help file for details. There are three methods of communication.

Crestron CEN-TIA
Operation
The CEN-TIA uses audio messages as voice prompts and responses. These files can
be WAV or MP3 files. Pre-recorded message files can be downloaded from
Crestron’s website (ftp://ftp.crestron.com).
A Cresnet system with the CEN-TIA may be programmed to respond to incoming
telephone tones or a sequence of tones. For example, pressing 1 from a telephone
(after connecting to the system) may be used to activate an air conditioning system
and the CEN-TIA would respond with “Command accepted, air conditioning is on”.
The system may also be programmed to dial-out and play a recorded message when
a specific input, such as from a security system, is received. By using CID
information, the system can be programmed to allow access from only a specific
telephone to perform various functions or play customized greetings depending on
the number calling.
Refer to the Toolbox help file for details on setting up the CEN-TIA to perform these
and many other functions.

Check Network Wiring
Use the Right Wire
Calculate Power
In order to ensure optimum performance over the full range of your installation
topology, Crestron Certified Wire, and only Crestron Certified Wire, may be used.
Failure to do so may incur additional charges if support is required to identify
performance deficiencies because of using improper wire.
CAUTION: Use only Crestron power supplies for Crestron equipment. Failure to do
so could cause equipment damage or void the Crestron warranty.
CAUTION: Provide sufficient power to the system. Insufficient power can lead to
unpredictable results or damage to the equipment. Please use the Crestron Power
Calculator to help calculate how much power is needed for the system
(http://www.crestron.com/calculators).
When calculating the length of wire for a particular Cresnet run, the wire gauge and
the Cresnet power usage of each network unit to be connected must be taken into
consideration. Use Crestron Certified Wire only. If Cresnet units are to be daisychained on the run, the Cresnet power usage of each network unit to be daisy-chained
must be added together to determine the Cresnet power usage of the entire chain. If
the unit is a home-run from a Crestron system power supply network port, the Cresnet
power usage of that unit is the Cresnet power usage of the entire run. The wire gauge
and the Cresnet power usage of the run should be used in the following equation to
calculate the cable length value on the equation’s left side.
Cable Length Equation
L<
40,000
RxP
Where: L = Length of run (or chain) in feet
R = 6 Ohms (Crestron Certified Wire: 18 AWG (0.75 MM 2 ))
or 1.6 Ohms (Cresnet HP: 12 AWG (4 MM 2 ))
P = Cresnet power usage of entire run (or chain)
Make sure the cable length value is less than the value calculated on the right side of
the equation. For example, a Cresnet run using 18 AWG Crestron Certified Wire and
drawing 20 watts should not have a length of run more than 333 feet. If Cresnet HP is
used for the same run, its length could extend to 1250 feet.
NOTE: All Crestron certified Cresnet wiring must consist of two twisted pairs. One
twisted pair is the +24V conductor and the GND conductor, and the other twisted pair
is the Y conductor and the Z conductor.
Strip and Tin Wire
When daisy-chaining Cresnet units, strip the ends of the wires carefully to avoid
nicking the conductors. Twist together the ends of the wires that share a pin on the
network connector, and tin the twisted connection. Apply solder only to the ends of
the twisted wires. Avoid tinning too far up the wires or the end becomes brittle. Insert
the tinned connection into the Cresnet connector and tighten the retaining screw.
Repeat the procedure for the other three conductors.
Add Hubs
For larger networks (i.e., greater than 28 network devices), it may become necessary
to add a Cresnet Hub/Repeater (CNXHUB) to maintain signal quality throughout the
network. Also, for networks with lengthy cable runs, it may be necessary to add a
Hub/Repeater after only 20 devices.
