DESCRIPTION
The KB-211 remote speaker station permits the user to select between two channels of
party-line communications, with the ability to talk and/or listen on the selected channel.
The user can listen via the integral speaker, or may use a headset or telephone-style handset –
and can talk via a headset mic, a telephone handset, or a push-to-talk microphone.
The KB-211GM adds a gooseneck-mic connector and VOX
circuitry, for hands-free full-duplex communications without a
headset. A switch allows the user to choose between the optional
GM-9 or GM-18 microphone and the headset connector.
The adjustable-sensitivity, close-in VOX feature automatically
detects the user’s voice at the mic and dips the level of the integral
speaker while increasing the gain of the microphone, performing in
the opposite manner when listening. The potential for acoustic
feedback is minimized while permitting natural conversation levels
and dynamics.
Microprocessor-controlled logic and switching yields a
feature-rich intercom station in a compact format. Electronic
KB-211GM
switching for the talk button, with mic-on LED indicator, permits
(detail showing mic
momentary or latching operation. For call signaling, a bright LED
connector and
mic /headset switch)
lights when a call is activated on a connected intercom channel.
A defeatable audible call signal, with level control, is also provided.
Separate level controls are provided for intercom level and for balanced program input.
A local program source may be fed to the station, allowing the user to monitor that source
while remaining in contact on the intercom system. The balanced program input can also
be used in conjunction with the stage-announce output of a main station to provide a
paging interrupt, allowing paging at the KB station even if the intercom volume control is
turned down.
A set of option dip switches is located at the top of the circuit board. Switches are provided for mic-latch disable (momentary-only talk), long-line operation, channel selection, call
signal tracking, and audible call signaling.
These versatile stations may be wall or console mounted in a standard U.S. 4-gang
electrical box, or may be mounted in the optional V-Box for desktop, surface-mount, or
portable applications.
Either of the stations may be used with the optional 4-wire or TW (two channels on
a single mic cable) daughter boards. With the TW board, the stations become plug-in
compatible with a Clear-Com TW system. The 4-wire board creates separate send and
receive circuits, so that the station may be attached to fiber-optic lines or other audio
routing systems with 4-wire connections.
The stations are powered by the intercom
line or by a local power supply when used
with the optional 4-wire daughter board.

DESCRIPTION
The KB-212 remote speaker station connects to a single channel of party-line intercom,
and operates in half-duplex mode, similar to a walkie-talkie. It features both an integral
speaker and a flush-mount electret microphone with mic limiter and a push-to-talk button.
The station may be programmed via two internal dip switches to operate in four different
modes, activated by other stations within the intercom system.
The different operating modes are activated using the call signaling function of another
station, which allows for individual control of the speaker and microphone. The default
mode is speaker on/mic off, with push-to-talk active on the front panel. In the remote page
mode, the mic is activated locally and the speaker is off except when turned on by another
station. For remote push-to-talk, the speaker is on and mic is off, unless it is turned on by
another station. And in the talk-back remote page mode, the mic is normally on for handsfree talking and the speaker is off; another station can turn off the microphone and turn on
the speaker for paging to the KB-212.
Microprocessor-controlled logic and switching yields a feature-rich intercom station in a
compact format. An electronic momentary-only talk button activates the talk function.
A green LED indicator lights whenever the mic is activated, either by the talk button or by
remote control from another station. Mic sensitivity is selectable for either close or distant
voice pickup.
The KB-212 offers both visual and audible call signaling, gaining the attention of the
user when not at the station. A bright yellow LED lights when a call is activated on a connected intercom channel. A defeatable audible call signal, with level control, is also provided.
Separate level controls are provided for intercom level and for balanced program input.
A local program source may be fed to the station, allowing the user to monitor that source
while remaining in contact on the intercom system. The balanced program input can also
be used in conjunction with the stage-announce output of a main station to provide a paging interrupt. This would allow paging at the station even if the intercom volume control is
turned down. In addition, the intercom volume control of the KB-212 can be internally set
so that an incoming message would still be audible, even if the control was turned all the
way down.
The KB-212 may be wall or console mounted in a standard 4-gang electrical box, or
may be mounted in the optional V-Box for desktop, surface-mount, or portable applications. It may be used with the optional 4-wire or TW (two channels on a single mic cable)
daughter boards. The station is powered by the intercom line or by a local power supply
when used with the optional 4-wire daughter board.

ACCESSORIES
BLOCK DIAGRAMS
4-WIRE OPTION MODULE
The EB-4 W4-wire option module
plugs into pins on the KB-211, KB211GM, and KB-212 speaker stations. It
consists of the necessary circuitry and connectors to convert any of these stations to
4-wire operation, and can accept two 4wire connections. This option allows the
speaker station to be used at much longer
distances than are possible with a standard
two-wire intercom line, and also permits
the station to operate via fiber optic cable
and other devices with 4-wire connections.
The module provides a transformer-isolated audio connection, and does not transfer
the call signal. A station using this option
module must be locally powered.

The V-Box converts any of the KB
speaker stations into a desktop, portable, or
wall-mount unit. The station panel may be
secured with four screws in one of the two
mounting spaces, for either an angled or a
vertical panel orientation. A blank plate
with mounting keyholes is provided to
cover the second mounting space. 3-pin
XLR male and female connectors are
mounted on the side panel, wired to a connector block for easy connection to the
speaker station. The rugged metal and
stained-wood enclosure is both durable and
attractive for long-term professional use.

TW OPTION MODULE
The EB-TW option module plugs into
pins on the KB-211, KB-211GM, and
KB-212 speaker stations. This option
allows the station to send and receive two
channels of audio on a single 3-pin microphone cable. With the TW module in
place, the station can become a part of a
Clear-Com TW system, and is compatible
with TW beltpacks and other components.
