Options
LPC4 Loop Priority Control Option
The LPC4 is used to interface the school sound system with satellite systems, such as those found in gymnasiums,
multi-purpose rooms, etc. The option also provides emergency seizure of the satellite system and bridging of their
outputs into the main system. Refer to figure 1.
Figure 1 - Wiring Diagram, LPC4 Loop Priority Circuit
MCP-EXP Input Expander Option
The MCP-EXP Expander Panel may be used to increase the input capabilities of the sound system. Each panel has
two banks of four switches and adds up to eight additional inputs to the MCP35A. Each bank may be connected to
the microphone input (MIC1 or MIC2) or AUX input of the MCP35A. Banks may be interconnected, allowing all
eight inputs to feed into one MCP35A MIC or AUX input. A multiple expander panel is easily interconnected to further increase the input capacity of the system.
An input is provided on each bank to replace the MCP35A MIC or AUX input into which the expander is connected. This input is accessed when all switches in the bank are in the out (off) position. When a switch is placed in the
on position, the input from each high-number switch on the bank is overridden, i.e., the input on switch 3 overrides
the input on switch 4, the input on switch 2 overrides the input on switches 3 and 4, and the input on switch 1
overrides the inputs on switches 2, 3, and 4.
Vertical 0.156 centerlines headers are provided to connect balanced or unbalanced microphones and auxiliary
equipment (tuners, CD players, tone generators, etc.). The panel is designed for easy rack mounting and occupies
one rack space.
5
ASF4 Alarm-Signaling Option
The ASF4 option provides four distinct tones for use as a manually-operated class change or for alarm signaling purposes (slow whoop, chime, steady, and interrupted tone). Tones are activated by remote contact closure. (Note: If
the MCP35A built-in tone signal generator is not used for time signaling, it can be used as a single-tone alarm and
would require only a remote contact closure.) Refer to Figure 2.
PBA3 Push-Button Alarm Panel Option
The PBA3 Alarm Panel is used with the ASF4 feature to provide activation of three separate alarm signals and
includes a reset button. Refer to Figure 2.
Figure 2 - Wiring Diagram, ASF4 Alarm Signaling with PBA3
CPP Handset Communication Option
The CPP option uses the Bogen TPS4 panel to provide for control center-to-classroom and classroom-to-classroom
phone communications. The TPS4 includes: an ON/OFF switch, which disconnects the intercom function of the
MCP35A to allow private telephone conversations; a CALL button which transmits a call tone to selected speakers;
an IN-USE LED, which illuminates when handsets are in use; and a disconnect function, which illuminates an LED
and sounds a tone when all handsets are on-hook. Requires the Model HS201C or HS202C staff classroom phone
and Model HS201C phone at the console. Refer to Figure 3.
Connections
Two terminal strips are included to connect the HS201C telephone handset and power supply. Connect the
HS201C to the terminal strip labeled HS-20 and GND. Connect a power supply to the terminals labeled +12V and
GND. Be sure to observe polarity.
Operation
Receiving a Call From a Staff Station
1. When the call-in switch at a staff location is activated, the corresponding LED on the room selector panel will
illuminate and a tone will sound. Answer the call according to the instructions printed on the MCP35A under
INTERCOM.
2. To speak over handsets, instruct the staff location to pick up the handset. Then pick up the console handset and
press the ON/OFF switch on the TPS4 (suspends normal intercom communication). The green IN-USE LED will
illuminate.
6
3. When a conversation is finished, press the ON/OFF switch to release it. Note that if both parties hang up before
the TPS4 is turned off, the red DISCONNECT LED will illuminate and the call-in tone will sound (returning the
switch to the OFF position will extinguish both). Return the room selector switch to OFF or intercom communication will resume.
Calling a Staff Location
1. Press the ON/OFF switch on the TPS4 and pick up the console handset. Select the station to be called by placing
the appropriate switch on the room selector panel in the “C” position.
2. Call the staff location by pressing the CALL button, which sends a call tone to the station loudspeaker. Wait for
the other party to respond by picking up the handset.
3. When the conversation is finished, follow step 3 under Receiving a Call From a Staff Station.
NOTE: Alternate Method - Call the station using the INTERCOM function of the MCP35A, then follow steps 2
and 3, under Receiving a Call From a Staff Station (page 6).
Calls Between Staff Stations
Two staff stations can communicate privately after being connected by the operator at the console (place each
room selector switch in the “C” position). The console operator may leave the conversation by hanging up the
handset. As long as the two staff handsets are off hook, the green IN-USE LED will illuminate. When the handsets
are returned to the switch hook, the DISCONNECT LED will illuminate, and the Call-In Tone will sound at the
MCP35A. At this point the operator resets both the room selector panel switches to OFF and presses the
ON/OFF switch on the TPS4 to release it.
Figure 3 - Wiring Diagram, CPP Handset Communication Feature

SCT Six-Circuit Time Signaling Option
The SCT option is used with the 6-circuit master clocks and the Bogen TZMA Time Zone Relay module, to provide
automatic distribution of class change signals. Class change signal interrupts programming only at those speakers
programmed, via the TZMA, to receive the signal. Requires a dedicated time signaling amplifier, a dry contact closure for each circuit plus a common closure. Refer to Figure 4.
Figure 4 - Wiring Diagram, SCT Six-Circuit Time Signalling Feature

MCPB Program Control Panel
The Bogen Model MCPB is a program control panel designed to operate with Bogen Series 2233R Centralized
School Sound Systems. It includes input and pre-amplification facilities, as well as monitoring control for a separately
amplified program channel (Channel B). The panel interfaces with the Bogen Model MCP35A Master Control Panel
(which provides the Channel A program facilities and MCPB power supply), the SBA325 room selector and annunciator panels (used to place selected speakers on the A or B program busses, or select intercom function) and a separate Channel B program amplifier.
The MCPB includes inputs for two Lo-Z microphones and an auxiliary program source (e.g., CD player/receiver).
Rear panel mounted input gain controls are provided to adjust the input level of each source. Phantom power is
available for the microphone inputs, selectable with a printed circuit board jumper (see page 11).
Selection of the Channel B program source is by simple push button operation, following the color-coded guidelines. A two-position switch (MONITOR A/B) allows selective monitoring of either program channel through the
built-in monitor speaker on the MCP35A control panel. A level control and LED meter are provided to adjust and
visually monitor the level.
A special All-Call feature overrides the Channel B bus when the MCP35A is used to make emergency announcements, telephone pages, or All-Call announcements.
Interconnection with the MCP35A, SBA325 room selector panels, and Channel B program amplifier are easily
accomplished. The panel is finished to match the associated sound system equipment and uses only one rack space.
