System Overview
The SSM110 Card Rack Assembly is the central control device of a SmartSeries system. The SSM110
Card Rack is designed to control a single-zone SmartSeries system and up to eight access panels. This
system configuration provides health checking (supervision) for the system’s page line and party line 1
cable, handset/speaker amplifiers, and speakers and access panels. Should a fault be detected, the event
may be displayed on the access panel and a printer prints a record of the event.
SmartSeries handset stations and access panels allow personnel to page individuals throughout the
system. Additionally, two-way (telephone type) conversation can occur between stations on a party line.
Single party line systems and five party line systems are available. Refer to Figure 1 for typical system
diagram.

System Design Considerations
Carefully plan the system layout before installation. Install handset stations in locations that allow for
convenience, accessibility, and personnel safety. For comprehensive speaker sound coverage, consider
the quantity and location of the loudspeakers—particularly in areas of high ambient noise or
reverberation.
Also, carefully plan the layout to minimize the amount of cable required for each installation. This is
especially important because all SmartSeries stations are wired in a branch configuration. GAI-Tronics
can supply multi-conductor cable designed specifically for this system. GAI-Tronics standard cable has
600 V insulation and is Underwriters Laboratory (UL) rated for power cable tray use.
If you need assistance in speaker layout, refer to GAI-Tronics Speaker/Horn Installation Manual
(Pub. 42004-135) for layout and speaker placement information.
Capacities/Limitations
SmartSeries Stations—A maximum of 200 SmartSeries stations may be connected to the PPI card in the
SSM110 Card Rack.
Access Panels—A maximum of eight access panels may be connected to the API card of the SSM110
Card Rack.
Speakers—Only one speaker can be connected to a SmartSeries station if the station is supervising the
speaker. If speaker supervision is not being used, up to four speakers can be connected to a single station
in low noise areas. We recommend a maximum of two speakers be connected to a single station in high
noise areas.
Access Panel Cable—The recommended maximum cable distance from the card rack to an access panel
is 6,560 feet (2000 meters).
GAI-Tronics System Cable—The recommended maximum cable distance from the card rack to a
SmartSeries station is 5,250 feet (1600 meters).
GAI-Tronics Speaker Cable—The recommended maximum cable distance from a SmartSeries station
to an 8-ohm speaker is 75 feet (22.86 meters). The maximum cable distance from a SmartSeries station to
a 16-ohm speaker is 150 feet (45.72 meters).
Station and Access Panel Power
SmartSeries stations require 120 V ac power. GAI-Tronics system cable contains a No. 14 AWG wire
triplet for distributing ac power to the SmartSeries stations. This wire can carry a maximum of 15 amps.
Each station requires approximately 0.5 amps maximum; therefore, up to 30 SmartSeries stations can be
connected to a single power circuit. Additional stations must be powered by additional power circuits.
Access panels are supplied with a modular ac power cord. Plug one end of the cord into the mating
receptacle on the rear of the access panel the other end into a standard 15A power receptacle.

Installation
Installing the Card Rack
The SSM110 Card Rack is designed for wall or surface mounting. Refer to Figure 2 for the card rack
outline. Consider the following when deciding on a mounting location:
1. Is adequate space to the right side of the card rack for access to the terminal blocks, ac power cable
and printer cable connections provided?
2. Can the mounting surface support the weight of the field cable when it is connected to the card rack?
3. Is a 120 V ac power receptacle located within 6 feet of the card rack? A modular line cord is supplied
with the card rack.
4. If connecting a printer, make sure there is a suitable location to install the printer so that the printer
cable will easily reach the card rack.
Figure 2. Card Rack Outline
To mount the card rack, secure the card rack to the mounting surface using the four slotted mounting
holes on the rear flanges. Use 0.25-inch diameter screws or bolts to support the weight of the card rack,
which is approximately 10 pounds when the plug-in cards are installed.

SSM110 Card Rack Assembly Installation, Operation, Maintenance Manual
Installing SmartSeries Amplifiers
Each SmartSeries station requires installation of a handset or a speaker amplifier. Prior to installing the
amplifier in the enclosure, set each amplifier’s address. A unique address must be set for each amplifier
within a zone. The installer should document each station’s amplifier address, the type of station
installed, a description of the station’s location and the speaker level needed. This information is needed
during system startup.
Address
The address is a unique hexadecimal number assigned to a SmartSeries station.
All stations connected to the same PPI card must have a unique address.
Type
The type of stations being used at that location. The type could be a Model 701902 or 701-802 SmartSeries Handset or a Model 751-901 or 751-801 SmartSeries
Amplifier.
Description
This is a brief description of the station’s location. This description will appear on
the printer, to help locate the station. The description can be a maximum of 40
characters in length.

Operation
Page Line Priorities
The SmartSeries system uses a priority scheme to control audio broadcasts from the system speakers if
multiple sources are attempting to access the paging speakers. This means that if a page is made from a
device with a higher priority, an in-progress page from a lower priority device is discontinued or muted.
The priorities, which are configurable, ensure that the most important messages gain access to the page
line first. All SmartSeries stations and access panels are assigned a page priority during the system
configuration process. The ADVANCE Console and WinSCP3 software packages available from GAITronics are used to configure and install these parameters.
Access Panel Operator
The access panels available from GAI-Tronics are versatile and allow the operator to communicate and
monitor the status of the system. The access panel includes a handset for paging, a series of lighted push
buttons, a buzzer, and an optional text display. The handset is used for paging and party line
communication. The buzzer sounds to alert the operator when new system information is received. The
information is listed on the text display (if present). The push-button switches are used by the operator to
perform the following functions:
•
•
•
Initiate voice pages
Route voice pages
Acknowledge system status
•
•
Select and reset fault condition messages
Check access panel LEDs
Paging
Complete the following steps to make a page announcement from an access panel:
1. Lift the handset from the cradle.
2. Press and hold the handset pressbar.
3. Speak directly into the microphone to broadcast your announcement over the loudspeakers.
4. Release the handset pressbar and return the handset to the cradle.
Lamp Test Feature
The lamp test feature is used to verify that the access panel indicators and display are functioning
properly. When the LAMP TEST push button is pressed, the switch indicators and display illuminate and
the panel buzzer sounds. The LAMP TEST, ACK/NEXT and PREVIOUS push buttons may not include an
indicator, depending on the model.

Field Station User
GAI-Tronics offers a full product line of stations designed to allow personnel to communicate throughout
the facility. By using one of the many available models of field stations, personnel can make a voice page
and provide instructions to their co-workers. Personnel can also request communication on the party line.
Party line conversations are private in the sense that they are not broadcast over the system speakers;
however, anyone may join the conversation by picking up the handset and selecting the same party line.
Page Line and Party Line Operation
Complete the following steps to make a page announcement from a field station.
1. Lift the handset from the cradle.
2. If party line conversation is desired, rotate the selector switch to an unoccupied party line.
3. Press and hold the handset pressbar.
4. Speak directly into the microphone to broadcast your announcement over the loudspeakers.
5. Release the handset pressbar, and if requested, wait for a response.
The paged individual(s) responds by picking up a station handset and turning the selector switch to the
requested party line. Party line communication, which is full duplex, is not broadcast over the system
speakers. Other individual(s) can also pick up a handset and join the conversation at any time. Always
return the handset to the cradle following a page or a party line conversation.

Optional Ancillary Equipment
Incorporating the optional equipment discussed below can expand the standard features of the SSM110
Card Rack. The configuration of the SSM Card Rack (quantity/types of interface cards) and desired
system features are the determining factors when selecting ancillary equipment to be used to with the
SSM Card Rack. Refer to drawing No.73158 listed in the Reference Material section for typical
interconnections between ancillary equipment and the SSM110 Card Rack. For additional information
and to purchase ancillary equipment please contact a GAI-Tronics representative.
Audio Messenger Interface
The Audio Messenger Interface (AMI) tone/speech generator broadcasts live pages, pre-recorded alarm
tones, and pre-recorded speech messages. The Audio Messenger Interface Configuration Tool (ACT)
software is used to define and change configurations for the AMI, and is included with all models of
AMI. To retrieve configurations and play audio messages, the AMI accesses a digital card preprogrammed with the AMI Factory Default configuration. All audio is in MP3 format and custom speech
messages can be recorded and configured for use with the AMI.
The AMI includes eight configurable inputs and outputs. Typically, the inputs are configured to activate
alarm/process tones and/or pre-recorded speech messages, mute audio playback, and reset alarms. The
outputs are typically used to activate remote alarm systems, interface to automated processes, interface to
paging equipment, etc.
The Model 10959-103 AMI provides the ability to perform live speech pages from a telephone. For this
feature to function, the AMI must be connected to an analog station port of a PBX type telephone system,
or directly to a Central Office telephone line on the public switched telephone network (PSTN). To
prevent feedback, the AMI includes a built-in feedback eliminator. With this feature enabled, incoming
telephone pages are recorded and stored until the telephone connection is terminated. After the
connection is terminated, the AMI broadcasts the page. The delay between the recording and playback of
the page eliminates any possibility of feedback.
The Model 10959-103 includes a Page/Party® system interface card. This interface card provides the
capability to broadcast any audio generated by the AMI on a GAI-Tronics Page/Party® system. When
coupled with a telephone interface card, the Page/Party® card provides telephone callers access to fullduplex line communications. Additionally, AMI models that include the 33-ohm Page/Party® interface
card allow a telephone caller to direct the telephone call to a specific party line.
Building Entrance Protection Barrier
The Model 10434-202NA Building Entrance Protection Barrier provides secondary protection from
signal line transients and over-voltage conditions that may cause serious damage to indoor
equipment or injury to personnel.

System Status and Status Reporting
The system status indicators notify the operator of system events and trouble conditions. System status
can be presented in several ways, depending on the system configuration. The following methods are
available:
•
Text messages on the access panel display (if equipped with a display)
•
•
•
•
•
•
Access panel indicators that turn on and off
Access panel buzzers that start and stop
Lights on cards in the card rack that turn on and off
Text messages that print on a printer
Device fault and restore events
Operational events (page line activity)
Status Messages
NOTE: Not all access panels are equipped with displays. The following section pertains to access panels
that are equipped with displays.
The system sends status messages to the operator. Status messages are text messages that are indicated on
the access panel display and printed on the printer. The system configuration specifies which messages
are sent to the operator and whether they are reported on the system printer, an access panel display, or
both. The configuration further specifies which types of messages sent to access panels require the
operator to acknowledge them. The actual configuration of the status messages will be determined at
system startup.
Display History Buffer
The system puts messages in a queue called the History Buffer. Messages that require status message
reporting are sent from the history buffer to the access panels. The system can accommodate a maximum
of two history buffers, and each can store up to 100 messages. Each history buffer is associated with one
specific access panel that contains any of the following: a display, a buzzer indicator, a buzzer flash
indicator, or a history level status indicator.
Messages are arranged within a history buffer according to a priority scheme.
Group 1 messages are messages that are waiting for acknowledgment. The messages are arranged by
type in descending order of priority. Within each type, the messages are arranged oldest to newest.
1. Trouble messages
2. Restore messages
Group 2 consists of messages that do not require acknowledgment and messages that have been
acknowledged, but the condition persists. Messages are arranged by the following types in descending
order of priority.
1. Trouble messages
2. Operational messages (page activity)
3. Restore messages

When a Group 1 message is acknowledged, it moves to Group 2. Messages are acknowledged by using a
switch on the access panel. Acknowledging a message on one access panel does not affect messages on
other access panels.
Messages leave the history buffer when any of the following occur:
•
•
•
The condition restores
An access panel operator presses the trouble remove switch (Group 2 messages only)
The history buffer reaches its maximum capacity
NOTE
If the history buffer reaches its maximum capacity, the system first discards Group 2 messages starting
with the lowest priority type messages, oldest to newest. The system proceeds to the next higher priority
type, again discarding messages from oldest to newest. When there are no Group 2 messages, the system
discards Group 1 messages starting with the lowest priority type, from oldest to newest.
Access Panel Display
An access panel may have one display, with a maximum of two displays per system. Each display must
be configured with a history buffer. The system will display one text message at a time. The message is
displayed unless a higher priority message preempts it. The operator can scroll through Group 2
messages if there are no Group 1 messages.
There are two switches used for scrolling: PREVIOUS and ACK/NEXT. The ACK/NEXT switch
acknowledges Group 1 messages. If there are no Group 1 messages, the ACK/NEXT switch will scroll
through any Group 2 messages in the history buffer. ACK/NEXT displays the next message downward in
the buffer within the Group 2 priority scheme (the oldest message in the next level down). PREVIOUS
moves to the prior message within Group 2 messages.
System Printer
There is a maximum of one printer per system. The system sends messages to the printer when certain
conditions occur. The types of messages to print are configurable. This allows the operator to have a
chronological record of events that occur in the system. If the operator acknowledges a message, the
acknowledgment message prints.
Contents of a Status Message
The system displays or prints one status message at a time. The types of messages displayed are
dependent upon your configuration; however, the messages could include the following:
•
•
Device fault and restore events
Operational events (page or party line activity)

System Startup and Shutdown
The system administrator can start, configure, restart, and stop the system. System startup includes cold
start and warm start.
Cold Starting the System
Cold start the system from the power-off state. Complete the following steps to cold start the system:
1. Apply power to all field stations. When stations are powered they are operational although they do
not communicate with the card rack until the cold start completes.
2. Apply power to the card rack. The visual indicators on the MCU card illuminate. The ONLINE
indicators on the PPI card illuminates when the system is running.
Warm Starting the System
Warm start the system from the power-on state by pressing the RESET button on the MCU bezel in the
card rack. Field stations remain operational during the warm start.
System Shutdown
The system is shutdown by removing power from the card rack. Field stations continue limited operation
until their power is removed.

The Programming Process
NOTE: This section is intended to give a general overview of the system programming process. Due to
the critical nature of the system software configuration and its effect on reliable and proper system
operation, the configuration process should be coordinated by GAI-Tronics technical personnel or
performed by a certified system administrator. Contact GAI-Tronics Service at 1-800-492-1212 for
technical assistance relating to system configuration or certification training.
The Master Control Unit (MCU) card contains the system operating software and the system
configuration file. The configuration file contains the data that defines the system’s physical and
operational characteristics. During system startup, the MCU initializes and automatically reads the
configuration file, and then sets the system operation to match the parameters.
The System Manger can change configuration by using the ADVANCE Console and WinSCP3 software
packages. The ADVANCE Console creates and maintains the software configuration file by
methodically setting data values. Graphical representations of the system components are used along
with various data entry forms and settings.
Using the ADVANCE Console does not require a connection to the MCU. The System Manager can
work on a configuration at any pace on a PC. There is no need to set all of the parameter’s data values in
one session. The System Manager is simply working on a configuration that is independent of any other
configuration that may exist or be active in an operating system.
When the System Manager is finished entering all the data, the ADVANCE Console file is translated (or
compiled). The resulting file is called the system configuration file. To save the configuration file onto
the MCU, the System Manager’s computer is connected to the MCU using an Ethernet network
connection. The connection can be made locally using a network crossover patch cable.
The file is loaded onto the MCU using the WinSCP3 application. The purpose of the WinSCP3 program
is to provide a means of accessing the MCU’s hard drive for file transfer from the System Manager’s
computer. The WinSCP3 program does not have the configuration capabilities of the ADVANCE
Console.
The system software must be re-configured when any changes are required such as the following:
•
Changes in system operation that relates to voice paging.
•
Changes to alarms activation/reset methods or alarm annunciation parameters.
•
Adding or removing SmartSeries stations, access panels, or I/O devices.
•
Changes to equipment or location identifications.
•
Changes in system status reporting.
NOTE: The programming process described above is one-way only. It is not possible to retrieve the
configuration data file from the MCU in a format, which can be viewed and edited.

ADVANCE System Files
As stated earlier in this manual, the ADVANCE Console program is used for software programming of
the system. There are two important file types used with the ADVANCE Console program:
The .hot File
The file that is created, opened, or saved by the ADVANCE Console program uses the file extension .hot.
The file name preceding the .hot extension can contain any characters recognized by Windows as a valid
file name. Generally the <filename>.hot is a descriptive name identifying the system or systems that it is
being used for. The .hot file contains the data of all system attributes and parameters that are entered
using the various user screens in the ADVANCE Console program.
The .hot file can only be opened, edited, and saved using ADVANCE Console. When changes are made,
the file must be saved or the changes are lost. The file can be saved to any folder, renamed, or deleted
using windows explorer after it is initially saved using ADVANCE Console. The file size obviously
depends on the content of the system being configured but generally is less than 1 Mb making it small
enough to be e-mailed or transferred to any readily available storage device.
The .cfg File
The .hot file described above is not directly used by the MCU to operate the system. It must first be
compiled using ADVANCE Console. The resultant file, after compiling, is named advance.cfg. This file
is stored on the MCU hard drive and is used by the MCU operating system to execute all the system
functions.
The MCU only recognizes the file name advance.cfg. If the file is misspelled in any way the system will
not function.
NOTE: The filename is case sensitive and must be all lower case.

Process Flow
The following is an overview showing the typical steps in programming an ADVANCE System.
Action
Description
1. Gather information.
Collect hardware and operation details that apply to the new or
changed system configuration.
2. Run the ADVANCE Console.
Software program.
The System Administrator defines all system hardware and sets
all system operating parameters for the system using graphical
interface screens.
3. When completed, save the
configuration database file.
All changes are saved in <filename>.hot.
4. Compile the <filename>.hot file
The console program generates a file folder for each system
defined in the configuration. The folders are saved at the
specified file location. Each folder contains a file named
advance.cfg.
5. Connect the programming PC to
the MCU.
The System Administrator attaches an Ethernet crossover cable
from the PC to the MCU.
6. Run Win SCP3 Program.
The System Administrator starts the Win SCP3 Program and
opens a session to the MCU. If the system contains more than
one MCU, a different session is opened with each MCU.
Multiple sessions can be open at the same time.
7. View the hard drive contents of
the MCU.
Navigate to the root/home/advance directory on the MCU.
This is where the configuration file must be saved.
8. On the programming PC,
navigate to the folder containing
the new configuration file
(created above).
Navigate to the directory created by the ADVANCE Console
program. This is where the new configuration file is saved.
9. Either rename or delete the
existing advance.cfg file on the
MCU.
The System Administrator removes the advance.cfg file from
the MCU hard drive. It can be also saved as an archive in case
of a problem with the new configuration.
10. Copy configuration file onto the
MCU hard drive.
The System Administrator copies the advance.cfg file to MCU.
11. The system will automatically restart and execute the new system
configuration.

Troubleshooting Guide
System Hum or Buzz
Hum or buzz on the paging speakers is usually due to a short circuit to ground on one of the two page line
conductors in the system cable. This condition is indicated on the access panel display and the PPI card
in the card rack.
To correct the problem, locate the source of the ground. Using an ohmmeter, check various junction
points of the system wiring to determine in which direction the ground can be located. Locate the ground
by going from one junction point to another and disconnecting the affected circuit. The fault could be
within a plug-in amplifier. However, most ground circuits occur in improper terminations or are caused
by small strands protruding from an improperly lugged wire.
Another source of grounds or near-grounded circuits is junction boxes filled or partially filled with water.
In many cases, there are deposits in the boxes, which, when combined with water, produce conductive or
corrosive solutions. These deposits cause leakage between circuits and can corrode the wire and
terminals.
Isolation of field wiring may be necessary for test purposes. When isolating a portion of the system from
the card rack, a 33-ohm 1/2-watt resistor must be connected across L1 and L2 of the page and party lines
to provide the proper audio line balance resistance. Remove this resistor after completion of the tests.
NOTE: The same tests also apply to the party lines.
Static Charges
In many normal installations, a static ac voltage may be read from the conductors of the page line circuits
to ground. In many cases this voltage may be as high as 50 volts or more. This voltage is induced into
the circuits by capacitance to the ac power circuit (generally carried in the same cable, and also from
power cables paralleling communication cables). This voltage is inconsequential and can be ignored.
Problems would only occur if one side of the page circuit becomes grounded.
Audio Voltage
In a properly operating system, audio voltage read across the page and party line circuits (L1 and L2) will
be 1 to 1.5 VRMS when an audio signal is present. The voltage will be proportional to the loudness of the
person’s voice using the handset.
