WIRING & INSTALLATION:
Before Installation:
· Make sure you have the proper power supply(ies) and all necessary and compatible equipment for the system.
· All Call and/or background music are optional features which require additional equipment. See notes below.
· Lay out your system in advance, assigning station numbers for all sub station locations.
· Surge protection for the intercom equipment is strongly recommended. Add SA-1 surge arrestors for the power
supply, plus one per two wires connected to the master station. See diagram on page 3.
Wire:
· Shielded wire is recommended. Use the proper gauge for the distance being run.
· Wiring between masters must be a multi-conductor cable. If more than one cable is used to connect masters,
the "E", "C", and number terminal wires must be in the same jacketed cable. If necessary, run multiple "E"
wires,
one in each cable.
Wiring Method:
· Run intercom cables at least 20" away from all AC wiring, fluorescent lights, dimmer switches, and other
electrical or electronic devices. Wiring can cross AC wires at 90 degrees.
· Sub stations may be homerun to the nearest master station, or daisy-chained. If daisy-chained, include 2
common wires plus one individual wire per station on the run.
· In a SINGLE MASTER SYSTEM ONLY: Subs can be wired with 2 conductors homerun. Jumpers between "E"
and "-" must be attached on all subs and at the master.
Intercom Locations:
· Do not install intercoms near dimmer or light switches, or other electrical wall devices.
· To prevent feedback, do not place sub stations back-to-back on a common wall.
All Call and Background Music:
· The BG-10C adaptor and PS-12F power supply are required for each group of 11 stations to receive All Call
and music. This equipment should be installed in an equipment room or in a cabinet. Capacitors (NP-25V) are
required for each sub station on the system. See wiring diagram on page 5 for installation information.

OPERATIONS:
* POWER SWITCH MUST BE ON FOR THE SYSTEM TO BE OPERATIONAL.
s Receiving a call from a sub station:
1. Sub station calls in with mono-electronic tone, heard as long as call button at sub is depressed.
2. LED light corresponding to calling station will light at master, staying on approximately 20 seconds.
3. Depress station button with lit LED.
4. Press TALK button to speak, and release to listen. With handset model (LAF-CA), speak to sub station
privately with voice actuated (VOX) handset. TALK button is also functional on LAF-CA models.
5. Press OFF button to the left of the station selector button when the call is concluded.
s Calling a sub or master station:
1. Depress station number of the location you wish to call.
2. Press TALK to speak, and release to hear reply, or use handset.
3. If you wish to send a pre-announce tone to the called station, press the TALK and ALL CALL buttons
simultaneously. A mono-electronic tone will be heard at the called station.
4. Press OFF button to the left of the station selector button when the call is concluded.
s Receiving a call from another master station:
1. When one master calls another master, no station LEDs light up, and the responding master answers
back hands free. The calling master uses the TALK button to speak.
2. The calling master can use the handset, but the responding master must speak hands free.
3. The "occupied lamp" will be on while the initiating master has a station selected.
4. The responding master should not press any buttons to respond to another master's call.
s Initiating an ALL CALL from the master station, and features of the BG-10C:
1. Press and hold the black ALL CALL button, then make an announcement.
2. To conclude, simply release the button.
3. All Call is a one way outgoing announcement only. If a station wishes to respond, they must press their
call button, and the master station can then answer the call as described above.
4. If background music is included, the music will be heard on the system while it is not occupied. When any
master station selects a station to place or answer a call, the music will be muted throughout the entire
system.
5. If a door station is wired to the BG-10C to produce a chime, a 4-stroke chime will be heard through the
stations selected to receive the chime (switches under plate on BG-10C). A call from a door station can
only be answered by a master station.

5 TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
1.
1. Make sure jumper is installed between E & terminals at the master and all sub stations (in 2wire configuration).
No call tone or LED when sub calls master.
2. Call tone works, but no communication, or
communication works, but no call tone.
2. Same as #1 in 2-wire system. In 3 wire system, 1 &
E are for communication, and 1 & - are for call-in.
Check continuity and connection of wires.
3. Call tone is too loud or too quiet.
3. Call tone volume control is located on main PC
board under select switch panel (white 3-pos. switch).
Level is set to maximum. Move to mid or low position.
4. Master stations cannot call each other.
4. The "C" terminal on the master station means
"CALL", and provides master-to-master communication.
Make sure the "C" of one master is connected to a
designated station # on another master.
5. LED lights don't light up when calling master-tomaster.
5. Station LEDs only light when a sub station calls.
Responding master answers hands free, therefore not
having to select a station.
6. Occupied light is always on.
6. Make sure all black OFF buttons on master(s) are off
(pressed down). Check "R" wire for short to ground. If
occupied light remains lit with "R" wire disconnected
from master, internal damage has occured, and the unit
must be sent in for repair.
7. When subs call in, multiple LEDs light up.
7. Make sure station number wires aren't shorted
together. Remove all jumpers between E & - in multimaster or 3-wire system. Test master by taking wires
off # terminals, then momentarily shorting # terminal to (neg). If more than one light comes on, internal damage
has occured, and the master must be repaired.
8. All Call doesn't work.
8. All Call is an optional feature requiring a BG-10C and
PS-12F for every 10-11 stations in the system. Make
sure adaptors are wired properly. See diagram #3e.
9. All call doesn't work, but adaptors are included.
9. Check connection of P1, P2, P3 terminals between
master and BG-10C's. P1 should read at least 10V DC
when All Call button is pressed. Voice is carried on P2,
P3 wires.
10. When All Call is made, all station LEDs light up.
10. If single-call sub stations are used, NP-25V
capacitors must be installed as shown on diagram #3e.
11. Feedback is heard between intercom stations in
adjacent rooms.
11. Intercom stations should not be mounted back-toback on a common wall. Separate them by at least two
feet, or on separate walls if possible. Adjust voice
volume control to eliminate feedback.
12. System has AC hum when listening to another
station from a master station.
12. Intercom wiring must be at least 20" away from any
AC wiring, fluorescent lights dimmer switches, or other
AC devices. Cross at 90 degrees when necessary. If
shielded wire was used, tie all shields together and
ground at one end to an earth ground. If noise persists,
isolate source of noise and separate the intercom station
and wiring from the source.
