Features and Capabilities
What Is the CIM-1000K
The Cimarron Technologies' Model CIM-1000K, ANI/Emergency ID Encoder is a
dual format encoder. It can be programmed to operate in GE Star® or MDC1200® modes. The unit provides Automatic Numeric Identification (ANI) of a
specific radio transmitter each time the microphone press-to-talk (PTT) switch is
activated and is capable of transmitting other data messages as well.
Typically the unit is programmed to encode “Stuck-Microphone”, “Emergency”, and
“Man-Down” messages but can be preprogrammed for any valid special message.
The Model CIM-1000K can also be used as a monitoring or alarm transmission
module by programming status and “canned” messages and interpreting them as
sensor inputs at the decoding site.
The CIM-1000K is available with either the 26 pin or the 20 pin mating connector.
Order either CIM-1000K-26 or CIM-1000K-20 as required.

Installation
Jumper K Configuration
Of all of the jumpers on the CIM-1000K, this jumper will cause the most
confusion. Jumper K connects the PTT and KEY lines together. Current x180
and x170 series radios require that jumper K be removed.
Deviation Adjustment
The CIM-1000K deviation is adjusted by a software selection. Under the “Radio
Interface” programming function, locate the “Output Level” screen. The value
can be programmed between 1 and 255. A value of 1 provides an output of
0.033 VPP and a value of 41 provides an output of 3.3 VPP. Values greater than
41 provide no additional output. To facilitate level setting, The device can be
programmed to continuously send data when the PTT switch is depressed and
held. Modify the value of Output Level until data deviation is just below voice
deviation. It is most appropriate to start at a deviation that is much lower than
voice and then adjust up until the correct point is reached. This method ensures
that the radio limiter circuitry is not affecting the CIM-1000K generated data.

Many functions and features of the CIM-1000K are user programmable.
In addition to signaling type, ID and radio interface parameters, the
device can be optimized for the application‟s particular needs. The CIM1000K is programmed with the Cimarron Technologies hand-held
portable programmer which uses invisible IR communications technology
so the programming is accomplished without actually connecting to the
programmer. Power, however, must be applied to the CIM-1000K during
programming. This allows the CIM-1000K to be programmed even when
it is installed in the host radio.
In addition to wireless IR connectivity, the handheld programmer can be
connected to the CIM-1000K with the use of a three-wire programming
cable. This cable also provides power to the CIM-1000K and is very
useful for pre-programming multiple boards prior to radio installation.
Connections are made from the RJ-11 connector on the programmer to
the three programming feed-throughs on the CIM-1000K.

Chapter 3
Programming
The programmer can be attached to a computer to facilitate the
programming of multiple boards. When connected to the serial port of a
computer, the computer keyboard is used instead of the programmer
keypad. See page 25 for more information.
Navigating the Portable Programmer Display Screens
The portable programmer leads the user through parameter selections
by using menu screens which are described in this section. The Top row
of keys on the programmer are soft keys and are defined by the bottom
row of the display. Some entries are made using the soft keys for
selection while other entries will be made directly using the keypad that
is labeled 0 through F.
Menu screens allow movement through the programming tree by
assigning navigation actions to the soft keys located on the top row of
the keypad. The table below explains the actions.

Once the user preferences are entered, they may be stored in one of
sixteen memory locations for later reference. In this manner, a radio
shop could store different user personalities for rapid retrieval. Then,
only the ID would need to be entered to program additional boards for
the same radio system.

Home and the Primary Functions
The programmer powers up displaying the Home screen which allows
the user to select memory functions (load from memory or store to
memory); read or program a board; or move on to selecting desired
parameters with CONFIG. Primary functions are ID Type, Common,
Radio Interface, Transmit Mode, Emergency and Man Down. When
“READ” is selected, line two of the display flashes “READING” while the
device is being read. When reading is completed, you are moved to the
ID TYPE screen. When “PROG” is selected, line two of the display
flashes “PROGRAMMING” while the device is being programmed.
When programming is completed, you are moved to the ID TYPE screen.
If reading or programming fails, line two will flash “FAILED” and wait for
the user to try again.
The “ID TYPE” screen above shows that GE-STAR is the currently
selected format type. From this screen, pressing BACK moves you to
the left, back to the HOME screen. Pressing NEXT moves you down to
the COMMON screen. Pressing PREV on any of the screens moves you
up to the previous screen in the group. Note that the TRANSMIT MODE
screen shows that the current selection is “Conventional”. Pressing the
CHG button opens selections pertinent to Trunking mode. The
“DECODE FEATURES” screen is only applicable to the CIM-2000 and is
ignored by the CIM-1000.

ID Type and Memory Functions
From the default Home screen, the user may select MEM or CONFIG or
be moved to ID TYPE after successfully reading or programming a target
device. When the ID Type is selected, the user will be moved to the
selected primary ID entry screen. The current ID is displayed. From
there, the ID can be changed by pressing the PRI ANI button and
entering the new ID. Once the PRI ANI button is pressed, the existing ID
flashes and is replaced by the new button presses. Flashing stops when
the ID is entered and the ID button is again pressed. By default, the
primary ID, secondary ID and emergency ID are linked and will all
change with the changing of the primary ID. To make the secondary ID
and emergency ID different, you must navigate to the related screen and
change it directly. To facilitate rapidly programming multiple boards,
pressing the “PROGRAM” key on the keypad from the PRI ANI screen
will program a board, then the ID can be changed and again another
board programmed by pressing the “PROGRAM” key.
GE Star® format is changed by pressing the FMT button. Each press
increments the format type by one. The current format display changes
with the button presses. Existing ID‟s that do not conform to the format
type selected are changed to default. ID entries are limited to the range
that is allowable for the format selected.
GE Star® message values are selected at the GE STAR MESSAGE
screen. Selecting the message type to change causes the current entry
to flash. While the value is flashing, enter the new value using the
keypad. Completing the entry moves you back to the previous screen.
MDC-1200® message values can be changed at the MDC MESSAGE
screen. These values should not be changed without a thorough
knowledge of the MDC signaling system and the impact a new message
will have on the targeted radio and radio system.

Selecting MEM from the home screen allows the user to store the current
programming information into memory locations 0 through F or to
retrieve previously stored information. Pressing CANX returns the user
to the HOME screen. Entering the location retrieves or stores the data
and then moves the user to the HOME screen.
When the programmer is first turned on, configuration information that
was last used is loaded. To overwrite the information with default
selections, go to the main HOME menu and select MEM. Then select
RECALL and DEFAULTS.

Programming using the CIM-CABLE
The programming cable, CIM-CABLE, supports connection via a
computer serial port with any computer running terminal emulation
software. One such program that is included in most Microsoft operating
systems is called Hyperterm. Hyperterm is usually accessed under
“Programs”, “Accessories” and “Communications” in the windows start
menu.
Start the Hyperterm program on your computer by double clicking on
Hyperterm.exe or selecting Hyperterm under the Communications menu
selection. A New Connection window will open. Name the new
connection “CIM1000K”, select one of the available icons and click the
“OK” button. A Connect To window will open. Under Connect Using,
select “Direct to COM1” and click the “OK” button. A Port Settings
window will open. Adjust the settings to match the below table and then
click the “OK” button:

disconnecting and reconnecting using the icons in the toolbar. To
disconnect, click the icon with the phone having the lifted handset. To
connect, click the icon with the phone having the cradled handset. Be
sure to save your selections under “File”.
The CIM-Cable consists of a DB-9 connector that connects to the
computer serial port, and three “micro-grabbers” that connect to three
programming holes on the CIM-1000K. The red grabber is power and
must be clamped onto the center programming hole. The white grabber
is programming data and must be clamped onto the programming hole
that is closest to the IR transceiver. The black grabber is ground and
connects to the remaining hole that is part of the circuit board ground.

Programmable Parameter Definitions
Signaling Type and ID Selection
Signaling Type Selection
The CIM-1000K is programmable to encode one of two signaling types.
These types are GE Star® and MDC-1200®.
Secondary ANI ID’s
Secondary ANI ID‟s are used if the CIM-1000K is turned on while the
radio PTT is pressed. If dual ID‟s are not desired, program the primary
ID and secondary ID with the same number.
GE Star®
GE Star® format type
(A through P) This selection defines which of the sixteen GE Star®
formats are in use.
GE Star® PTT ID, Emergency ID
(1 – 16383) The actual maximum value depends on the GE Star® format
type selected. Generally, the PTT ID, Emergency ID and Man-Down ID
in GE Star® are the same; however, they could be programmed different
if desired.
ANI Message
This selection defines the four message bits and three status bits in the
GE Star® payload. An ANI PTT ID message is hex 01. This could be
changed to accommodate unique applications. Other message
definitions are listed on page 37.
Emergency Message
This selection defines the four message bits and three status bits in the
GE Star® payload. An emergency message is hex 07. This could be
changed to accommodate unique applications. Other message
definitions are listed on page 37.
TOT Message
This selection defines the four message bits and three status bits in the
GE Star® payload. A TOT (Time-out-timer) message is hex 09. This
could be changed to accommodate unique applications. Other message
definitions are listed on page 37.
28
Chapter 3
Programming
Man-Down Message
This selection defines the four message bits ant three status bits in the
GE Star® payload. A Man-down message is hex 0F. This could be
changed to accommodate unique applications. Other message
definitions are listed on page 37.
Preamble Length
The original GE Star® format specified 16 preamble bits. However, it
was determined that a 24 bit preamble significantly improved data muting
reliability and 24 bits eventually became the standard. Some
installations have opted to increase the preamble length while
decreasing the attack delay. So the length can be programmed from 16
bits to 248 in increments of 8 bits.
MDC-1200®
MDC-1200® PTT ID, Emergency ID
(1 – DEEE) Generally, the PTT ID and the Emergency ID are the same;
however, they could be programmed different if desired. A radio ID
cannot contain the character F nor can it begin with the character E as
these are defined as wildcards.
ANI Message
To increase flexibility of the CIM-1000K and enhance compatibility with
existing communications systems, the format of encoded MDC-1200®
messages can be modified. The default message type for a PTT ANI is
represented by 0x8001. These parameters should not be changed
without a thorough understanding of the signaling system and existing
signaling codes.
Emergency Message
To increase flexibility of the CIM-1000K and enhance compatibility with
existing communications systems, the format of encoded MDC-1200®
messages can be modified. The default message type for an
Emergency ANI is 0x8000. These parameters should not be changed
without a thorough understanding of the signaling system and existing
signaling codes.
Common
The common section handles parameters that will be used in all
available signaling formats.
Location:
If programmed “Beginning”, the ID will be transmitted when the user keys
the radio. If programmed “End”, the ID will be transmitted when the user
un-keys the radio. If programmed “Both”, the ID will be transmitted both
at the beginning and end of transmission
29
Chapter 3
Programming
PTT ANI repeat timer
Used to reduce the amount of data transmissions during a conversation.
If the selected time since the last PTT press is not exceeded, data is not
transmitted with that PTT press.
Sidetone with PTT ANI
If programmed “Yes”, a tone will sound through the local speaker to
advise the user to hold off talking. The tone helps to prevent “voice
syllable clipping” which could occur if the user speaks during data
transmission.
Un-key courtesy tone
If programmed “Yes”, a tone will be transmitted when the user un-keys to
inform listeners that they may now transmit.
PTT Message Becomes Critical
If enabled, whenever the device is in critical mode (emergency cycle or
Man-Down cycle), and the PTT button is pressed, the ANI message to
be transmitted will be the associated critical message instead of a PTT
ANI message.
Preamble Fills Attack Delay
Typically, the attack delay is filled with silent carrier. If this selection is
enabled, the attack delay period will be filled with the signaling format
preamble and there will be no silent attack delay. After the programmed
attack delay, one more duration of preamble will be transmitted to ensure
reliable decoding.
Radio Interface
The Radio Interface section handles parameters that relate to the correct
interfacing of the board to the radio electronics.
Attack Delay
The period of time from when the user keys the radio and when the data
begins to be transmitted is called the attack delay. This delay allows the
communications system to stabilize and be ready for transmission.
Time out timer
If the radio is held keyed up for greater than the selected time, the ID is
transmitted and the radio is automatically un-keyed.
Critical Channel Revert
If enabled, 50 mS prior to keying up to transmit an Emergency or a ManDown, the Auxiliary output line (If it also is programmed for “Critical
Channel Revert” will go low and stay low for the duration of the attack
delay and data transmission.
Key Follows PTT
Enabling Key Follows PTT makes the CIM-1000K key line echo the
condition of the PTT line. So if the PTT line goes low, the key line will
follow and stay in the condition until the PTT line again changes state.
30
Chapter 3
Programming
This is especially useful if you desire the CIM-1000K to un-key the radio
at the expiration of the Time-Out-Timer time.
Multiple Function Output
The multiple function output line can be programmed to serve one of two
purposes as listed.
Transmit Control Output
Transmit control output is typically used to control a transmitter CTCSS,
turning it off during ANI transmissions. Idle state is 3.3VDC. When
active, it sinks to within 1 volt of system ground (100 mA max). Active
state occurs during attack delay and all data burst transmissions.
Critical Channel Revert
Alternate channel control is similar to Data control but is active only
during Emergency and Man-Down data transmissions. It is used to
change the radio channel to a “Home” channel before sending the
Emergency or Man-Down message. This line becomes active 50 mS
before the Key line is activated for emergency and man-down
transmissions. When active, it sinks to within 1 volt of system ground
(100 mA max).
Output Level
The data output level of the CIM-1000K is software adjustable. This
level can be set by entering a number between 0 and 41. The default
setting is 30. Although the configuration routine will permit an entry of
between 0 to 255, the maximum output is achieved at a setting of 41. A
setting of 21 provides approximately 0.33 Vpp unloaded. A setting of 41
provides the maximum of 3.3 VPP.
PTT Input Active Level
PTT input is used to detect when the attached radio is busy transmitting.
This line is programmable for an input sense of active high or active low.
Sleep Input
This is useful if ANI is desired on selected channels only or when not
desired on talk-around channels. This is an input to the CIM-1000K
microprocessor. If the line becomes active, it will put the CIM-1000K to
“sleep” preventing ANI activity. The active state is programmable for
logic 1 or 0. It is normally pulled up to VCC.
Transmit Mode
Conventional
If Conventional is selected, data is transmitted after the programmed
attack delay.
Trunked
If trunked mode is selected, the Channel Acquired input line of the CIM1000K is used to detect when the trunking channel has been acquired
and transmission is possible. In LTR systems, Trunk Key Time and
31
Chapter 3
Programming
Trunk Timeout should be the same. In MPT-1327, this timer allows the
transmitter to be keyed and then un-keyed in order to request channel
access. The time selected is the period the unit stays keyed for the
request. The CIM-1000K will wait for the period designated in Trunk
Timeout for a channel acquisition indication. When received, the unit will
again key up and send out data.
Trunk Debounce
Some trunking radios have channel acquired logic which pulses while
attempting to be granted access and then remain in a state showing
access is granted. For this reason, the line is programmable to set the
debounce time so that pulsing is ignored. The unit will not transmit data
until the specified time period has been exceeded.
Trunk Key Time
Trunk Key sets the time the unit is keyed while awaiting channel
acquisition.
Trunk Time Out
Trunk Timeout sets the maximum amount of time that the unit will
attempt to acquire a trunk. Once exceeded, the unit will quit attempts.
Trunk Channel Acquired Active Level
This line is interfaced to a point in a trunking radio that changes state
when granted access. The input is used to detect when the trunking
channel has been acquired and transmission is possible.
Emergency
Number of repeat emergency transmissions:
The number of times that an emergency message is to be repeated. If
this is set to 255, the emergency cycle will continue until power is cycled
on the host radio.
Repeat Delay:
When in the emergency mode, if the number of repeat emergency
transmissions is not “Zero”, this is the time that will be waited between
emergency transmissions.
Activation Delay
This timer designates the amount of time the emergency input must be
held active before it is recognized by the board.
Emergency TX warning tone:
If programmed “Yes”, a warning tone will sound through the local
speaker to advise the user that an emergency message is being
transmitted.
Active State
The active state is programmable for logic 1 or 0. It is normally pulled up
to VCC.
32
Chapter 3
Programming
Open Microphone Monitor on Emergency TX time
If not set to zero, once an emergency is activated, the radio will key up
and transmit ambient noise for this period of time. It will then un-key and
remain un-keyed for a programmed amount of time and then repeat the
process. It will alternate between TX and RX throughout the emergency
cycle. The length of the cycle is determined by the settings of “Number
of repeat emergency transmissions“ and “Time between emergency
repeats“. If the value is set to zero, there will be no open microphone
monitor.
Open Microphone Monitor on Emergency RX time
If open microphone monitor on emergency TX time is not set to zero, the
radio will remain unkeyed for this period of time between TX times.
Man-Down
Number of repeat Man-Down transmissions
(0 to 255 repeats) The Man-Down message transmission will be
repeated a programmed number of times with a programmed period
between transmissions. The repeats will be transmitted regardless of
radio status. If this is set to 255, the emergency cycle will continue until
power is cycled on the host radio. A warning tone is sounded at the local
radio speaker each time a man-down message is transmitted, unless
man-down activation delay is set to zero.
Repeat Delay
0 to 255s) Repeated Man-Down transmissions will be separated by a
programmed delay period between transmissions.
Active State
The active state is programmable for logic 1 or 0. It is normally pulled up
to VCC.
Man-Down Warning Delay
(0 – 255 S) Once the CIM-1000K senses a Man-Down situation, this
timer begins to run. If the radio is not up righted within this period of
time, a warning tone lasting 1 second is sounded. If the radio is up
righted, the warning timer resets. If the warning delay is set to zero,
there will be no audible warning and the man-down message will be
transmitted at the expiration of the man-down activation delay.
Man-Down Activation Delay
(0 – 255 S) If the warning delay timer succeeds to complete its
countdown and the warning tone is sounded, the activation delay timer
begins to run. The activation delay timer is programmable 0 to 255
seconds. If the radio is not up righted within this period of time, the radio
will key up and send a message to the base.
Open Microphone Monitor on Man-Down TX time
(0s to 55s, 5s steps) If not set to zero, once a Man-Down is activated, the
radio will key up and transmit ambient noise for this period of time. It will
33
Chapter 3
Programming
then un-key and remain un-keyed for a programmed amount of time and
then repeat the process. It will alternate between TX and RX throughout
the Man-Down cycle. The length of the cycle is determined by the
settings of “Number of repeat Man-Down transmissions“ and “Time
between Man-Down repeats“. If the value is set to zero, there will be no
open microphone monitor.
Open Microphone Monitor on Man-Down RX time
(0s to 55s, 5s steps) If open microphone monitor on Man-Down TX time
is not set to zero, the radio will remain un-keyed for this period of time
between TX times.

ANI-ID
ANI (Automatic Numeric Identification) provides for digital identification of
a transmission initiated by a transmitter's microphone switch (“Press-ToTalk” or “PTT” switch). This “digital burst” can occur when the switch is
first pressed, or when the switch is released, or at both times. The burst
time for most identifiers is approximately 1/3 second and, if transmitted
upon pressing the PTT switch, and the user immediately begins to talk,
may obliterate one or two syllables of spoken speech. To overcome this
annoyance, the Model CIM-1000K is programmable to produce the burst
either at the beginning or at the end of the voice transmission, or at both
times. To further guard against voice-syllable clipping, the user may
program a “PTT Sidetone“. When programmed and interfaced to
receiver audio, this feature will provide an audible tone during the
beginning transmission of the ANI-ID burst to alert the operator that data
is being transmitted.
Time-out-timer
When a mobile or portable radio inadvertently remains keyed due to a
stuck microphone switch, it generally means that the radio frequency is
unusable for communications. Unfortunately, this activity is sometimes
deliberately caused by a field operator. Whenever a microphone switch
is held closed for more than the designated time-out-timer time the CIM1000K will sound a local warning tone and send the ID of the offending
radio. The unit can also be installed in a manner that will automatically
open the key line until the microphone switch is released.
Emergency
The Emergency feature is generally used by law enforcement, security
agencies and fire departments to automatically signal a life-threatening
situation where it is difficult, impossible, or impractical to use voice. The
emergency message is also frequently used by business and industrial
users to signal a critical situation, such as a mechanical failure, over or
under temperature (pressure, etc.), or extraordinary event.
The CIM-1000K allows for programming whether the message should be
repeated and at what intervals and for how long. In addition, during the
emergency cycle the microphone of the sending radio can be monitored,
and can alternate between monitoring and allowing the channel to be
used for voice communications.
Man-Down
The Man-Down feature is primarily for use by law enforcement, security
agencies, and fire departments. It also finds uses in business and
industry where individuals can be overcome by toxic fumes, lack of
oxygen, etc.
The Man-Down ID is generally initiated by closure of a mercury switch
located within a hand-held radio when the radio is continuously tipped
35
Chapter 4
Operation
greater than 60 degrees from vertical. To guard against false “ManDown” transmissions an initial pause of a few seconds is provided during
which the closure must be constant. After this duration a short tone is
produced via the radio's speaker. A second pause follows the tone to
allow the radio to be placed in an upright position (in the event no actual
“Man-Down” is occurring). Following the second pause the “Man-DownID” data burst is transmitted in the same manner as the “Emergency-ID”.
The Man-Down mode also can include the microphone monitoring
alternative. Transmission of a unique coding for the Man-Down
message (in lieu of a general Emergency coding), and multiple choices
of initiation, tone, and final pause times are available.
Status
Status messages typically relate to the status of the field unit, such as “In
Service”, “Out Of Service”, “On Break”, etc. and their appropriate
meaning can be displayed at the decoding site equipped with a Cimarron
Technologies C Plus decoder. The CIM-1000K is capable of transmitting
status messages in lieu of the Man-Down, Emergency and PTT ANI as
required.
Canned Messages
“Canned” messages handle such communications as “Request-To-Talk”,
“Priority-Request-To-Talk”, “Repeat Last Transmission”, “Repeat
Address”, “10-4”, “Roger”, and other routine requests and responses.
Their appropriate meaning can be displayed at the decoding site
equipped with a Cimarron Technologies C Plus decoder. The CIM1000K is capable of transmitting canned messages in lieu of the ManDown, Emergency and PTT ANI as required.
Dual ID Capability
The CIM-1000K can be programmed for two independent ID‟s. If the
radio is turned on with the PTT held down, the secondary ID is used until
power is cycled on the radio. If the radio is turned on normally, without
holding down the PTT switch, the first ID is used.

Chapter 5
Technical Information
Trunking Operation
In trunking mode, we will not transmit until we have been given
permission. This is detected by the use of timers Trunk Debounce,
Trunk Key Time and Trunk Timeout and sense line Aux IN. Here are a
couple of scenarios that discuss operation.
Systems where Trunk Key Time and Trunk Timeout are set to the
same value (LTR):
Emergency
The user has just pressed the Emergency button. The CIM-1000K
activates the KEY line for the amount of time described by the timer
Trunk Key. From the beginning of key time until the expiration of Trunk
Timeout, the unit is checking Aux IN line and waits for the line to
become true. Once it changes state, the CIM-1000K watches the line for
the time described in Trunk Debounce and verifies that the state change
remained unchanged for the entire Trunk Debounce time. The CIM1000K then waits the Attack Delay time and then encodes and sends the
message out the dataout line. If Aux IN does not change state (and
remains changed for the entire Trunk Debounce time) for the duration of
Trunk Timeout the call is dropped and the failed attempt does not count
towards the programmed emergency repeats. If, during Trunk Key Time,
Aux IN changes state, but changes state again before Trunk Debounce
expires, the timer Trunk Debounce resets and waits for Aux IN to toggle
active again and starts counting down again. In LTR systems, Trunk Key
Time and Trunk Timeout must be set to the same value.
In this timing chart, the distance between green lines is 100mS, between
brown lines is 250mS and from the Blue to the Yellow line is 50mS. The
C Plus is programmed for Aux IN active High, Attack Delay of 50mS,
Trunk Debounce of 250mS and Trunk Key Time and Trunk Timeout is
set to 3 Seconds.
PTT ANI beginning send not “Key follows PTT”
The user has just keyed the radio to speak and the CIM-1000K is
programmed for “beginning send” ANI. The CIM-1000K starts monitoring
the Aux IN line. Once the line becomes active and stays active for the
duration of the trunk select debounce timer, the CIM-1000K activates the
Key line, waits the attack delay and then sends the PTT ANI and then
39
Chapter 5
Technical Information
deactivates the Key line. The radio remains keyed because the user is
still pressing the PTT button. If the Aux IN line does not become active
and remain active for the duration of the trunk select debounce timer, by
the end of the Trunk Time out, the call is dropped.
PTT ANI end send not “Key follows PTT”
The user has just keyed the radio to speak and the CIM-1000K is
programmed for “end send” ANI. The CIM-1000K waits for the user to
unkey the radio. The CIM-1000K then activates the KEY line for the
amount of time described by the timer Trunk Key. From the beginning of
key time until the expiration of Trunk Timeout, the unit is checking Aux IN
line and waits for the line to become true. Once it changes state, the
CIM-1000K watches the line for the time described in Trunk Debounce
and verifies that the state change remained unchanged for the entire
Trunk Debounce time. The CIM-1000K then waits the Attack Delay time
and then encodes and sends the message out the dataout line. If Aux IN
does not change state (and remain changed for the entire Trunk
Debounce time) for the duration of Trunk Timeout the call is dropped. If,
during Trunk Key Time, Aux IN changes state, but changes state again
before Trunk Debounce expires, the timer Trunk Debounce resets and
waits for Aux IN to toggle active again and starts counting down again.
PTT ANI beginning send with “Key follows PTT”
The user has just keyed the radio to speak and the CIM-1000K is
programmed for “beginning send” ANI. The CIM-1000K activates the
key line and starts monitoring the Aux IN line. Once the line becomes
active and stays active for the duration of the trunk select debounce
timer, the CIM-1000K waits the attack delay and then sends the PTT
ANI. The Key line remains active until the user releases the PTT button.
If the Aux IN line does not become active within the time set in Trunk
Timeout, the key line relaxes and the call is dropped. The user must
rekey the radio to make another attempt. The value of Trunk Key (which
is the same as the value of Trunk Timeout) is ignored.
PTT ANI end send with “Key follows PTT”
The user has just keyed the radio to speak and the CIM-1000K is
programmed for “end send” ANI. The CIM-1000K activates the key line
and continues monitoring the PTT line. Once the line becomes inactive,
the CIM-1000K sends the PTT ANI and then unkeys the radio. The
values of Trunk Key Time, Trunk Timeout and Trunk Debounce time are
ignored.
Systems where Trunk Key Time and Trunk Timeout are not set to the
same value (MPT and others):
Emergency
The user has just pressed the Emergency button. The CIM-1000K
activates the KEY line for the amount of time described by the timer
Trunk Key. From the beginning of key time until the expiration of Trunk
Timeout, the unit checks Aux IN line and waits for the line to become
true. Once it changes state, the CIM-1000K watches the line for the time
described in Trunk Debounce and verifies that the state remains

Technical Information
unchanged for the entire Trunk Debounce time. It then rekeys, waits the
attack delay and sends out data. If Aux IN does not change state for the
duration of Trunk Timeout the call is dropped and the failed attempt does
not count towards the programmed emergency repeats.
In this timing chart, the distance between green lines is 100mS, between
blue lines is 50mS and between brown lines is 200mS. The C Plus is
programmed for CHAQR active High, Attack Delay of 200mS, Trunk
Debounce of 50mS, Trunk Key Time of 100mS and Trunk Timeout to 3
Seconds.
PTT ANI beginning send not “Key follows PTT”
The user has just keyed the radio to speak and the CIM-1000K is
programmed for “beginning send” ANI. If the values of Trunk Key Time
and Trunk Timeout are not the same, the CIM-1000K starts monitoring
the Aux IN line. Once the line becomes active, the CIM-1000K begins
monitoring the PTT line. When the PTT line becomes active, and the
Aux IN line is still active, the CIM-1000K activates the Key line, waits the
attack delay and then sends the PTT ANI and then deactivates the Key
line. The radio remains keyed because the user is still pressing the PTT
button. If the Aux In line and the PTT line do not both become active
within the programmed Trunk Timeout time, the call is cancelled.
PTT ANI end send not “Key follows PTT”
The user has just keyed the radio to speak and the CIM-1000K is
programmed for “end send” ANI. If the values of Trunk Key Time and
Trunk Timeout are not the same, the CIM-1000K monitors the Aux IN
line and the PTT line. When both lines become active, the CIM-1000K
waits for the PTT line to become inactive and then The CIM-1000K
activates the KEY line for the amount of time described by the timer
Trunk Key. From the beginning of key time until the expiration of Trunk
Timeout, the unit checks Aux IN line and waits for the line to become
true. Once it changes state, the CIM-1000K watches the line for the time
described in Trunk Debounce and verifies that the state remains
unchanged for the entire Trunk Debounce time. It then rekeys, waits the
attack delay and sends out data. If Aux IN does not change state for the
duration of Trunk Timeout the call is dropped
PTT ANI beginning send with “Key follows PTT”
The user has just keyed the radio to speak and the CIM-1000K is
programmed for “beginning send” ANI. The values of Trunk Key Time
and Trunk Timeout are not the same. The CIM-1000K key line follows
the action of the radio PTT line. The CIM-1000K starts monitoring the
41

Technical Information
Aux IN line. Once the line becomes active the CIM-1000K waits for the
PTT line to again become active, waits the attack delay and then sends
the PTT ANI. The Key line follows the action of the radio PTT line. If the
radio PTT line does not become active within Trunk Timeout of when the
AUX IN line became active, the call is dropped.
PTT ANI end send with “Key follows PTT”
The user has just keyed the radio to speak and the CIM-1000K is
programmed for “end send” ANI. The values of Trunk Key Time and
Trunk Timeout are not the same. The CIM-1000K key line follows the
action of the radio PTT line. The CIM-1000K starts monitoring the Aux

line to again become active, then waits for the line to relax. When the
radio PTT line relaxes, the CIM-1000K Key line remains active and
sends the PTT ANI. The Key line then relaxes. If the radio PTT line
does not become active within Trunk Timeout of when the AUX IN line
became active, the call is dropped.

Troubleshooting
Installation Hints
The CIM-1000K must be programmed with your desires before it will
work in your system. The CIM-1000K will be keying the associated
transmitter and injecting audio into the radio. It is very important to
adjust data out to ensure the correct deviation level. The deviation level
should be just marginally below that of voice. Keep in mind that most
transmitters have limiter circuitry. Limiter circuits ensure that the radio
will never over-deviate and violate FCC rules. The limiter does this by
clipping the transmit audio. The output of the CIM-1000K must be
adjusted to a point just below where limiter clipping occurs. If the limiter
is allowed to function, the data will be distorted.
Isolating System Problems
Today‟s modern communication systems take advantage of many
available resources. Voters, repeaters, various trunking protocols,
scramblers and innumerable other devices make passing data
substantially more difficult than it was in the “Simplex” days.
Timing is very important. If you have system problems, the first place to
spend your energies is with timing issues. Check attack delay in
repeater systems. Start with a long delay that gives you 100% decode
and then shorten it up.
If you have trunking system problems using the CIM-1000K, review the
trunking information located on page 39 of this manual.
Equipment Problems
Radio Keys and Stays Keyed
If the radio sends ANI data and then stays keyed even after releasing the
PTT button, verify the condition of jumper K on the CIM-1000K and the
programming parameter “Key follows PTT”. If you have “Key Follows
PTT” enabled or jumper K connected when they should not be, this
symptom could occur.
Radio Keys up but stays Keyed only for Duration of ANI
This symptom is usually caused by incorrect conditions of the “Key
follows PTT” parameter and CIM-1000K jumper K.
ANI goes out at “End” Regardless of Programming
This symptom is usually caused by the “PTT Sense” being programmed
opposite of how it should be or the voltage swing is insufficient. Use an
O‟scope to measure the level at the yellow (PTT) line when at rest and
then when active (Keyed). The line should rest above 1.9VDC and go
low when keyed if active low. It should rest below 0.9VDC and go above
1.9VDC when active if active high.

Troubleshooting
ID Decoded is not the same as Programmed
This occurs when the unit is in GE Star® mode and the CIM-1000K
“format” is not set the same as the decoder. See page 37 for details.
