PYRAMID 915MHZ WIRELESS RF TRANSMITTER & REPEATER USER GUIDE
OVERVIEW
INSTALLATION
This Product is part of a centrally controlled
messaging system.
1. Choose a location for the transmitter.
• For buildings less than 100,000 sq. ft.,
locate the transmitter centrally.
A typical system consists of one or more
servers that transmit time and other information in wired or wireless format. The servers
can synchronize to various time standards.
The servers can get their time from other
Pyramid servers, NTP via the Internet, your
Intranet, and GPS.
• For multi-story buildings, locate the
transmitter on a middle floor.
• For buildings greater than 100,000 sq.
ft., please consult with your dealer or
sales representative.
The servers transmit data wired or wirelessly
to various devices including, but not limited
to:
DEVICE
RECEIVES DATA
WIRED OR WIRELESSLY
Analog Clocks
Time
Digital Clocks
Time, Date, FirE,
Code Blue
Message Boards
Time Recorders
Bell Systems
• The transmitter should always be
indoors, in a dry location.
• The location should be away from
people.
• Under no circumstances should the
transmitter be placed where people
can regularly come within 20cm of it.
2. Attach the supplied antenna by rotating
in a clockwise direction.
Time, Date,
Informational and
Emergency Messages
3. Place or mount the transmitter so the
antenna is standing vertically. This is
required for proper operation.
Time, Date, Setup
Information
4. Connect the Ethernet port to a computer or a network. The transmitter will be
configurable from anywhere on the
local network.
Bell Signaling
(NOTE: In some installations, receivers with a
transmitter option may be enabled to become
low power repeaters.)
5. If a GPS receiver is to be used as a time
standard, install and connect as
described in the GPS documentation.
6. Connect the power supply to the transmitter and to any standard wall outlet.
(NOTE: Using anything other than the included Power
Supply or included Antenna in a vertical orientation
may be unsafe, cause improper operation, and
violates FCC regulations.)

SETUP
1. Insert the included Pyramid TimeTrax Sync
Software CD into a networked computer or
one that could be directly connected to
the transmitter via the CAT5 cable.
2. Installation should automatically run once
the computer has detected the CD. The
software will self-guide you thought the
beginning stages of installation.
4. The software will automatically detect the
transmitter on the network. The transmitter
my already have an IP Address, Subnet
Mask and Gateway that have been
assigned by your DHCP server
3. After the software is successfully installed,
run the program by double clicking the
“Pyramid” icon on your desktop. The
Pyramid TimeTrax Sync Login Screen will
appear and you are now ready to sign in
for the first time
5. Follow the online software guide to configure Time Zone and Daylight Savings Time
configuration. The default is the setting on
your computer. Many options exist to get
and serve time over Ethernet. Pyramid
devices automatically recognize each
other and share time and setup information. Each device knows the quality of its
time. The device with the most accurate
time is recognized as the standard.
ENTER The following User Name and Password:
(note that the Password is case sensitive)
• User Name = ADMIN Password = PTI
Click the LOGIN button or you can simply hit
the ENTER/RETURN key on the keyboard to login
to TimeTrax Sync. TimeTrax Sync security is
independent of Windows Security, hence the
user accounts need to be first created for all
users who would like to use the system.
Pyramid Ethernet devices automatically
recognize and use the following time
sources from best to worst as follows:
• GPS Hardware if installed
• Pyramid encrypted time from another
Pyramid device with GPS or NTP time
There are two types of user levels under which
a user account may be created. The user levels are ADMIN and GENERAL USER. Users with
ADMIN user levels have complete access to all
features in the software, and can also create
additional users in the system. Initially, there are
two user accounts created by default.
• Internet NTP Primary Servers - a list of
servers is included and updated by
Pyramid
• Internet NTP Secondary Servers - a list of
servers is included and updated by
Pyramid
• User Name = ADMIN Password = PTI
The user level for this login is ADMIN.
• Intranet NTP Time Servers - may be
added to the server list or provided by
DHCP
• User Name = DBA Password = DBA
The user level for this login is GENERAL USER.
• Time from a PC with recently acquired
NTP time
For security reasons, the users of TimeTrax Sync
are required to Login to use the software every
time. In addition, it is advisable to change the
password for ADMIN user account, to prevent
un-authorized use of the software to manipulate transmitter/ repeater configuration settings.
• Time from the installation PC
(NOTE: Any type of time sources above can be disabled
if desired.)
(NOTE: Any Pyramid Ethernet device can also be used as
an NTP Time Server. Assigning a static IP address for this
device is desirable.)
