Introduction
The Model 370-202 Interface Amplifier for Electro-Sound allows GAI-Tronics’ Page/Party® systems to
interface with GAI-Tronics’ Electro-Sound systems. This unit interconnects two voice circuits that are
dissimilar in voltage and/or impedance. The interface amplifier is not just a matching transformer; it also
includes a gain adjustment that compensates for differences in signal levels or permits use with a range of
signal level. It can also be used in other paging systems.

Figure 1. Model 372A Indoor Enclosure Mounting
Mounting
The indoor enclosure is not supplied with openings for conduit or cable. Drill or punch these openings
using the supplied template before mounting the enclosure. We recommend placing the conduit holes near
the rear surface of the top or bottom of the enclosure. Avoid the top center, as it may interfere with the
plug-in amplifier receptacle.
There are four 5/16-inch diameter mounting holes in the corners of the Model 372A Amplifier Enclosure
See Figure 1. When mounting the enclosure, use caution to avoid damaging the terminal blocks inside.
The suggested mounting height for all station enclosures is 54 inches (137 cm) to the bottom of the
enclosure.
Connect the conduit to the enclosure, then feed the wiring through the conduit into the enclosure. When
wiring the station, follow the wire colors carefully; the colors noted in Figure 2 correspond to GAI-Tronics
60038 Series cable. The wires should be spade-lugged and connected properly to the terminal block. An
improper termination may result in diminished station performance.

Wiring a Model 370-202 Between a Page/Party® System and an Electro-Sound II System
Figure 2 shows the wiring of a three-wire Electro-Sound system interfaced to a five-party Page/Party®
system. Handsets or headsets plugged into jack stations are normally tied to party line 5 but switch to the
page line whenever the page switch on the handsets or headsets is pushed. The power source contains a
relay that disconnects the coupling when no handset or headset is plugged in and another relay for
switching between page and party lines.
The wiring shown in Figure 2 provides ac power to Model 471 Electro-Sound Power Source, Model 370202 Interface Amplifier Assembly, and Page/Party® wall stations.
The wiring to the interface shown in Figure 2 can be modified for two-wire Electro-Sound systems. See the
Electro-Sound installation manual, 42004-072. It is absolutely necessary to place a 33-ohm load between
points four and five or between points six and seven on the power source enclosure terminal blocks if these
points are not connected to a page or party system. The two-way amplifier in the Model 370-202 may
oscillate if these resistors or the Page/Party® Line Balance Assembly is not connected to the Model 370202 Interface.

Checkout and Adjustment
1. After the Model 370-202 is installed and connected to the power, verify that normal use of the
Page/Party® system has not been affected by the addition of the Model 370-202 Interface Amplifier
Assembly. Make sure that the GAI-Tronics sidetone level (the amount of transmitted signal from the
microphone that is heard in the receiver) is not substantially affected when the interface is connected to
the system.
If oscillation, distortion, or excessive sidetone occurs, check the Model 370-202 installation wiring and
ensure that the Model 305-001 Line Balance Assembly is properly installed and connected. See
42004-139, the GAI-Tronics 700 Series Page/Party® Systems installation manual. If normal operation
is not restored, proceed to Step 3.
2. After the Model 370-202 Interface has been installed and connected to the Electro-Sound system and
the GAI-Tronics Page/Party® system, verify that a page initiated from the Electro-Sound system can be
heard over the page speakers on the Page/Party® system.
3. After system basic operation has been verified, adjust the Model 370-202 Interface if necessary. First,
establish communications between the Electro-Sound system and the Page/Party® handset station
nearest the interface. Follow Sub-steps A through C to complete the Model 370-202 adjustment.
Adjustments are made through the plugged access holes on the front cover.
A. The Balance Control is adjusted for minimum sidetone at the GAI-Tronics station. To perform
this adjustment, blow into the microphone of the GAI-Tronics handset and adjust the balance
potentiometer on the Model 370-202 Interface to “null out” the microphone signal from the
receiver.
B. Adjust the Line to GAI-Tronics potentiometer until the volume of the voice of the caller on the
Electro-Sound system is comparable to normal voice levels on the GAI-Tronics system. (See note
below).
C. Adjust the GAI-Tronics to Line potentiometer until the volume of the signal from the GAI-Tronics
system to Electro-Sound system is comparable to normal system voice levels. (See note below).
NOTE: If the LINE TO GTC and/or the GTC TO LINE controls are set too high, oscillation and
distortion may result. In this event, decrease these control settings, readjust the BALANCE
control as necessary, and reset the LINE TO GTC and/or the GTC TO LINE controls for optimum
levels below the point at which oscillation occurs.

One-Way Operation
If the Model 370-202 Interface is only used for one-way communication, jumper wires located on the
Model 370-202 two-way amplifier printed circuit card (69056-002) can be removed to improve amplifier
stability and performance.
If the Model 370-202 is used for one-way communications ONLY, complete the following adjustments:
1. For Electro-Sound system to the GTC system, cut Jumper W-4.
2. For the GTC system page line to Electro-Sound system or central amplifier, cut Jumper W-3.
When the Model 370-202 is operated in a one-way mode, the BALANCE control will have no effect on
operation. When W-4 is cut, only the LINE TO GTC control will be functional. The GTC TO LINE
potentiometer will be active if W-3 is cut.
Model 370-202 Applications
In Figure 3, a Model 370-202 Interface allows the following options:
•
paging to be initiated by either a Page/Party® station or a three-wire Electro-Sound system
•
two-way party line communication to occur at a prearranged time
Further, where a three-wire Electro-Sound system (Electro-Sound with paging) is installed and more than
ten Page/Party® speaker amplifiers, (650 Series), are used to power the speakers, a Model 370-202
Interface is required. See 42004-072, the Electro-Sound Communications System installation manual, for
more information.
