Add Accurate Time Controlled CD Quality Tones or
Messages and Emergency Tones to Your Paging System
Viking’s model CTG-2 is an advanced clock controlled
tone/message generator designed to provide accurately timed
tones and/or messages over your existing paging system. This
provides a cost effective way of signaling school period changes,
factory shifts, breaks, lunch periods, etc. The CTG-2 has four programmable trigger inputs which are ideal for triggering emergency alert tones/messages to indicate fire evacuation, severe
weather, lock down, all clear or can be used in store castor applications for “customer service required” announcements, etc.
The CTG-2 comes equipped with up to 6 minutes of CD quality
WAV file audio storage for up to 14 different tone/messages. The
unit is factory loaded with common school, business and factory tones but can be programmed with your
custom tones/messages or updated from the list of Wav files from the Viking web site.
The CTG-2 can be programmed with up to 14 schedules and up to 1,000 events allowing you to program
an entire year or multiple years of schedules in advance. Once programmed you can change the CTG-2’s
schedules or turn the unit on or off remotely from any touch tone phone. The CTG-2’s extremely accurate
time base can be manually synchronized, synchronized with 50 or 60 Hz power or can be programmed to
periodically synchronize to the Atomic clock via its internal modem.
The CTG-2 comes with programming software and a USB port to allow PC programming of timed events, schedules, Atomic
clock synchronization, wave file down load, message volume, day light savings time, leap year, auxiliary relay control, etc.

CTG-2 Wave Files: Clicking the “Audio” button will open the “CTG-2 Wave Files” programming screen where you can
Upload, Download, Erase, Set volume and message start delay for the wave files stored in the CTG-2.
Message Delay (sec): Adjustable from 0 to 9 seconds in half sec increments. This is the delay from when the page trigger output is activated until the start of the wave file is played. Adjusting this can eliminate cutting off the first section of the
wave file in applications where certain paging amplifiers require a second or two to power up and/or switch to that audio
source.
Memory Usage: The CTG-2’s wave file memory storage is separated into 14 memory blocks and is displayed after each
wave file name under the column titled “Memory Usage”. The memory blocks will fill with color after uploading a wave file
showing how much memory space was required for that file. Larger wave files will require multiple memory blocks. To conserve memory storage space you can reduce the sampling rate of the wave file from 44K to 22K or 11K. Note: Reducing
the sampling rate will decrease the sound quality of the message/sound.
Missing Wave Files: If the CTG-2 does not have a wave file in its internal memory that is required by the PC dat file you
have open, “Missing Wave Files will be highlighted in red. To upload the missing wave file to the CTG-2, open the drop down
menu and click on the missing wave file. The file will then be automatically uploaded to the CTG-2.
Volume: The “Volume” drop down menu allows you to adjust and set the volume level of each individual wave file. This is
useful for matching the volume levels of each wave file or increasing the volume on specific wave files such as evacuation
sirens, etc.
Load All: In the “Tools” drop down menu, selecting “Load All” will upload all the missing wave files into the correct memory locations in the CTG-2.
Erase All: In the “Tools” drop down menu, selecting “Erase All” will erase all 14 wave file memory locations in the CTG-2.
Save Vol: After adjusting the wave file volume levels (adjusted volume settings will be highlighted in red) select “Save Vol”
to save the volume settings for all wave files.
Play: Clicking on “Play” will signal the CTG-2 to play the selected wave file. This is useful for setting the volume levels for
each wave file.
9
Change Rate: In the “Tools” drop down menu, clicking on “Change Rate” opens the
“Rate/Size Calculator” which allows you to reduce the sampling rate of the selected wave
file to reduce memory storage capacity. Note: It is not possible to reduce the rate of a file
occupying only one block. (right)
WAV File Guidelines:
1. For best results, the WAV file should be 16 bit / 44.1K / mono.
2. Resolution down to 8 bits is acceptable but audio quality will not be optimal.
3. Sampling rates of 22k and 11k are also acceptable.
4. The WAV file may be stereo or multi-channel, but only the Left Channel will be loaded.
5. Each of the 8 Memory Locations can hold up to 44 seconds of recorded audio (at 11k
sample rate).
6. Total recording time of 5 minutes 52 seconds available (at 11k sample rate).
7. Longer recordings are allowed to spill over into additional memory locations.
Note: Audio CDs use “Red Book” audio. The commonality is that both audio CDs and
WAV files have the audio data encoded in PCM. The Audio Red Book standard is essentially a WAV file along with additional coded information such as title, track, and time information. Applications such as
Sound Forge, Audacity, and Windows Sound Recorder can be used to generate WAV files out of Audio CD and/or MP3
audio recordings.
Set Up Clock: Clicking the “Clock” button will open the “Set
Up Clocks” programming screen where you can
enter/program Clock Parameters such as Time base
(Internal, 50 Hz or 60Hz), Time Zone and Set Clock (Manual,
PC time or Sync to ACTS). Program Clock Time (Year,
Month, Day, Time and +/- Calibration) and Modem
Parameters such as Security Code, Auto Answer Ring Delay
(1-99) and ACTS Phone Number.
Set Clock: Clicking this pull down menu will allow you to
select the method used for setting the CTG-2’s internal
clock. Selecting “Manual” will allow you to manually adjust
the time and date parameters then click “Set” or “Upload” to
set the time and date in the CTG-2’s internal memory.
Selecting “Use PC Time” will load the current time and date
from your PC into the “Clock Time” parameters then click
“Set” or “Upload” to set the time and date in the CTG-2’s
internal memory. Selecting “Sync to ACTS” will allow you to
force an Atomic Clock Sync from your PC by clicking “Set”
or “Upload”. This process will take approximately 30 seconds. The current time and date will then be loaded into the CTG2 and displayed under Clock Time”.
Set: Clicking “Set” will upload the CTG-2 with only the time and date parameters displayed in the “Clock Time” section of
the “Set Up Clock” screen. Note: Clicking “Upload” will send clock time and all other parameters in the “Set Up clock”

Time Base: In the “Set Up Clock” screen, click this pull down menu to select the CTG-2’s time base. With “Internal Clock”
selected the CTG-2 will base its time off its internal crystal controlled (quartz) real time clock with an accuracy of approximately 2 ppm which is +/- 63 seconds per year without atomic clock sync. Note: This accuracy can be greatly increased
with periodic Atomic Clock Synchronization or periodic manual clock corrections. With AC Line 50 or 60 Hz selected the
CTG-2 will base its time off the AC voltage powering the unit. The clock accuracy will then follow the power company fluctuations. This can be useful for matching the CTG-2 time to existing AC powered clocks.
Time Zone: Clicking this pull down menu will allow you to select the correct USA time zone for your region.
Set Clock: Clicking this pull down menu will allow you to select the method used for setting the CTG-2’s internal clock.

ACTS Phone Number: “ACTS” is the abbreviation for “Automated Computer Time Service” provided by NIST (National
Institute of Standards and Technology). This field is factory loaded with the typical phone system line access number 9 and
a comma (1 sec pause) then the 10 digit number for the ACTS. This number can be user programmed with up to 50 digits,
allowing the use of calling cards, etc. to reduce long distance charges. The telephone number for ACTS is: 1-303-494-4774.
ACTS Sync: Clicking ACTS Sync will activate a forced Atomic Clock Sync. This process will take approximately 30 seconds. The current time and date will then be loaded into the CTG-2 and displayed under Clock Time”.
Security Code: This is a programmable 6 digit touch tone code for entering remote touch tone programming. This code is
to be entered after the CTG-2 has answered the line and given a confirmation beep.
Daylight Savings Time Enabled: Check this field to enable automatic daylight savings time correction. The CTG-2’s internal clock will then be advanced 1 hour at 2:00 AM of the Starting Sunday and dropped back 1 hour at 2:00 AM of the Ending
Sunday.
Daylight Savings Time: In the “Tools” pull down menu. This screen
allows you to program the starting and ending month and Sunday for
the automatic change to Daylight Saving Time. Use the pull down
menus to select the starting and ending month and Sunday then click
upload to send the data to the CTG-2. The CTG-2’s internal clock will
then be advanced 1 hour at 2:00 AM of the Starting Sunday and
dropped back 1 hour at 2:00 AM of the Ending Sunday. (right)
Triggers: Clicking the “Triggers” button will open the “Set Up
Triggers” programming screen where you can enter/program the
parameters for Trigger Inputs 1 – 4 such as Which wave file to play,
Contact (N.O./N.C.), Trigger Mode (Alt Action/Activate Only), Play
Count (1-99 or Continuous), Volume setting, Type (Mom / Cont) and
Playback Mode (Interrupt/stack).

Push Button Programming
The push buttons on the front of the CTG-2 are limited to allow you to program only the following functions: Set time, Set
schedule, Force an Atomic Clock sync, Turn the unit ON (RUN) or OFF and exit and Run. See PC programming for all other
functions.
MODE switch: Press this to cycle through the following modes “RUN”, “SET TIME”, “SET SCHEDULE” and “FORCE TIME
SYNC”. LED’s above the display will light indicating which mode the unit is in.
+/- TIME switches: RUN Mode: Press the “-“ button to place the unit in the OFF mode. Press the “+” button to place the
unit in the RUN mode. Note: When the CTG-2 is in the OFF mode, programmed events will not be transmitted. Unit will
display “OFF”, the internal clock will continue to run and the 4 trigger inputs will remain functional.
SET TIME Mode: Use “+/-“ buttons to increment or decrement clock time.
SET SCHEDULE Mode: Use “+/-“ buttons to select a schedule or Calendar mode (CAL).
FORCE TIME SYNC Mode: Press the “+” button to initiate a “Forced Time Sync” to the Atomic Clock (ACTS). The internal
Modem in the unit will then seize the phone line, speed dial ACTS and down load the current time and date. This process
will take approximately 30 seconds in which time the unit will flash “Snc” on the clock display. Note: Unit must be connected
to a phone line or analog phone system station port for time sync.
To u c h To n e P r o g r a m m i n g
The CTG-2 has limited Touch Tone programming allowing you to call the unit remotely and program the following functions:
Turn unit ON or OFF, Select a Schedule or Calendar mode or Force a Time Sync.
Accessing the Programming Mode Remotely
Step 1. Call into the CTG-2 from a touch tone phone.
Step 2. The CTG-2 will automatically answer and provide 1 beep.
Step 3. Enter the 6-digit security code (factory set to 845464, see PC Programming section).
Step 4. A double beep will indicate that you have accessed the programming mode.
Step 5. You can now touch tone program the features listed below.
Note: Programming from a cell phone may not be suitable in areas with weak coverage.
Touch Tone programming commands:
Turn unit ON ------------------------ #1
Turn unit OFF ---------------------- #0
Force a Time Sync ---------------- #8
Select Schedule 1 – 14 ----------- 01 – 14 then enter #7
Select Calendar Mode ----------- 99 then enter #7
Confirmation beeps: 2 beeps will be heard indicating a correct entry. 3 beeps will be heard indicating an incorrect entry or
error. If 3 beeps are heard simply re-enter the command. The CTG-2 has a 20 second inter digit Touch Tone time out. If you
exceed 20 seconds between Touch Tone entry the unit will output 3 beeps and hang up. Note: Slow deliberate Touch Tone
entry is recommended.
Force a Time Sync: After entering “#8” two beeps will be heard, the unit will drop the line and then initiate a “Forced Time
Sync” to the Atomic Clock (ACTS). The internal Modem in the unit will seize the phone line, speed dial ACTS and down
load the current time and date. This process will take approximately 30 seconds in which time the unit will display “Pro” on
the clock display. If the CTG-2 was unable to sync with ACTS the display will rotate between flashing the clock time, “Snc”
and “Err”. The unit will then redial the call every 5 minutes until it has a successful sync or reaches a maximum call attempt
of 15. If the units was unable to sync after 15 attempts, the display will continue to rotate between flashing the clock time,
“Snc” and “Err”.

Operation
After all PC programming is completed, saved to the dat file and uploaded to the CTG-2 you can now exit programming and
place the unit in the “RUN” or “OFF” mode. To exit PC programming and place the unit in the RUN mode click on “RUN”
in the “Event Programming Screen”, select “Calendar Mode” (automatically switches schedules per Calendar programming)
or select which specific “Schedule” you would like the CTG-2 run. If you select a specific schedule the CTG-2 will only run
that schedule and will not change schedules until reprogrammed. The CTG-2 will now display the current time with a flashing colon and light the “RUN” LED. When placed in the “RUN” mode the CTG-2 is now ready to play and/or activate the
next scheduled event*.
To exit PC programming and place the unit in the OFF mode click on “Exit” in the “Event Programming Screen” then click
“NO”. This will close PC programming and place the CTG-2 in the OFF mode. The unit’s clock display will display “OFF”.
With the CTG-2 in the “OFF” mode the unit will not play or activate any programmed events. The 4 trigger inputs will remain
fully functional for emergency signaling, etc. The unit can be placed back into the “RUN” mode via Push Button programming, PC programming or Touch Tone programming.
*Note: Only one wave file event can be played per minute but the CTG-2 can change a schedule, play a wave file and activate the Aux relay at the same programmed time.
