1. INTRODUCTION
Preamble
Thank you for choosing the DYNACORD PROANNOUNCE System. With the PROANNOUNCE System you
purchased a high-quality product which is going to satisfy your highest demands. This extraordinarily flexible and
versatile system allows the configuration of either small or complex installations as well. Most functions are realized
through software modules, which - when compared to conventional PA-systems – not only reduces the amount of
cabling but also the costs. Next to extensive audio signal generating and distribution functions, the PROANNOUNCE
system provides ample control functions. On one hand, these functions offer the possibility to register and rate
external events, as well as to control different external components, on the other hand. Boolean operations and
relations to the internal state of the system can be programmed as well.
To be able to take advantage of all possibilities that are offered by the PROANNOUNCE system, we would like to ask
you to read this handbook carefully. For getting a quick overview about the PROANNOUNCE system's components
and functions, we recommend consulting the chapter System Description.

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
3. System Description
This chapter provides an overview of the general configuration of the PROANNOUNCE system and its most important
functions. The following block diagram shows a typical PROANNOUNCE system installation including the DPM 4000
central unit, paging stations, audio equipment, amplifiers, power supply unit, relay board assemblies, loudspeaker lines,
and control board assemblies for external signals.
figure 3.1 PROANNOUNCE System
3.1
General Overview
The digital PROANNOUNCE manager DPM 4000 represents the central unit of the system. It is used to control and
monitor all connected components via several serial interfaces. The chapter Single Device Descriptions contains all
necessary information about the DPM 4000 and its available modules.
The kind and amount of connected audio sound sources, amplifiers, and relay board assemblies are extremely
variable. This allows configuring the system to basically match any requirement. The system is capable of managing up
to 16 paging stations and up to 100 output lines. More than 150 control inputs and outputs are available for controlling
and monitoring purposes providing the possibility to generate and manage logic levels and analog levels as well. For
detailed information, please refer to the chapter DCS 400 Control System.
Configuration and documentation of a PROANNOUNCE system installation is established through the use of the
PROANNOUNCE Designer software – a comfortable graphical user interface that runs on a PC under Windows
95/98/NT. This allows changing the system’s setup at any time to meet new requirements, without the need to alter the
actual installation. The PC has to be connected to the system only when loading or changing its configuration. During
PROANNOUNCE System User Handbook 1.1

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
normal operation, PC-interaction is not necessary. Anyway, in most cases the permanent connection of a computer
bears benefits, like displaying detailed status reports or the printing of protocols. It also offers the possibility for remote
diagnosis and remote maintenance via modem.
3.2
Audio Routing
The DPM 4000 employs a digital audio matrix providing 4 inputs and 4 outputs. Additional matrix junctions for the
integrated gong and alarm signal generators, the vocal recording/playback unit, and the lock-on of the pilot tone and its
evaluation are incorporated. All input signals and internally generated signals can be freely mixed inside the matrix and
outputted through the 4 amplifier channels. Routing speaker lines to these amplifier channels is achieved via the relaymatrix, which offers up to four separate audio buses simultaneously, while the DPM 4000 takes over the management
of all these signals according to their priority.
Next to connecting paging stations, the audio inputs also serve for the connection of other audio sound sources, like
microphones, mixers, CD-players, cassette decks and DAT-recorders, tuners, etc. Several different input modules are
available to optimally adjust and match signal levels and connections.
3.3
Volume And Tone Controls / Delays
The PROANNOUNCE system provides individual volume controls for each input, output, and paging station. Even the
internal audio sources, like gong/alarm tone generators, voice message playback, and pilot tone generator employ
individual level controls, each. Additionally, it is possible to set an attenuation that unanimously affects the inputs. This
value determines the degree, by which the input signal is attenuated during the reproduction of messages or other
signals with a higher priority setting. This allows to smoothly fade-out and fade-in background music during the
transmission of important messages.
Besides, each of the four inputs embodies three fully parametric digital filters allowing for optimal tone control. The
filters provide different filter types like Hi-/Lo pass filters, shelving filters, and peak-dip-filters providing the possibility for
adjusting the sound within the entire audio transmission range. Factory-preset filter settings for the DPC 4000 Series
paging stations are already provided.
Setting volume levels and filter parameters is accomplished via PC during the configuration procedure. Further, it is
possible to alter any volume setting during the later operation of the system via special-function keys on the paging
stations or through external controls that are connected to analog or digital control inputs.
All four outputs employ digital delays allowing signal delays of up to 330 ms per channel. Natural delays, resulting from
loudspeaker positioning which causes time differences in the traveling of sonic events or environmental circumstances
related to architectural characteristics of the location, can be equalized without additional effort.
3.4
Signal Generators / Voice Message Memory
The DPM 4000 provides a variety of tone generators for the generation of gong, alarm, and text signals. Signal
generation is realized through DSP-algorithms, which are extremely flexible in use, so that they can be adjusted to
match nearly any possible application. Factory presets include 6 different gong signals, 18 different alarm signals, plus
sine cycle at any frequency. Other than in comparable equipment, the PROANNOUNCE signal generating DSPalgorithms do not take up any extra storage of the voice message memory.
In addition, a voice message recording/playback module providing CD-quality sound is optionally available. With a total
recording time of approximately 6 minutes, 25 different messages are being managed. The DPM 4000 provides the
possibility to install up to four optional FLASH-memory modules, depending on individual desires or requirements.

PROANNOUNCE System User Handbook 1.1
SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
3.5
Paging Stations
The DPC 4000 Series paging consoles are mainly meant for transmitting voice messages and calls but also to
manually control the PROANNOUNCE system. Available paging station functions are: line/group selection, voice
messages, program assignment, launching gong and alarm signals, and reproduction of voice message memory
announcements. Additionally, special commands include volume control, monitor selection, preset switching, lighting
control, function status indication, etc. Thus, it is possible to configure the paging consoles to serve as operation panels
for general control purposes.
If a voice call is being launched into a speaker line that is already busy with other audio transmissions, the caller gets a
busy-sign, i. e. the BUSY-LED blinks. In case the calling terminal has a higher priority it will interrupt any messages
from other paging stations or audio signals with lower priority levels. Interruption does not take place uncontrolled
anymore. Before actually interrupting a transmission, the blinking LED indicates that a line or group is busy when
selecting a destination, leaving the choice to the operator, whether he/she immediately wants to interrupt or wait upon
the conclusion of the momentary reproduced program.
3.6
Control Inputs And Outputs
By using the control inputs, it is possible to link the PROANNOUNCE system to fire alert systems, burglary alert
systems, or to a central operating desk. It is also possible to connect external switches, breakers, rotary controls or
rotary encoders, respectively to query control outputs of external units (power supplies, power amplifiers, …).
The control outputs allow switching external devices ON or OFF, trigger signals and events, switch monitor sources,
remote control doors, gates or shutters, generate analog signals for the control of multimedia systems, etc.
A total of 130 control inputs for logic levels, 128 control inputs for analog levels, 16 inputs for rotary encoders, 127
logic-control outputs, and 128 analog-control outputs are usable.
3.7
Clock / Calendar
The PROANNOUNCE manager DPM 4000 has an integrated quartz-controlled real-time clock which can be set for
radio-controlled DCF 77 operation using the optional antenna (DCF 77 tuner NRS 90193). The system clock
automatically recognizes leap years and, if in DCF 77 mode, automatically switches between daylight saving time and
standard time.
The system clock provides the possibility to control up to 40 external slave clocks. For this purpose, the DPM 4000
employs a special, short-circuit-proof output for pole changing impulses. Slave clocks are automatically resynchronized whenever a time difference to the system clock is detected; like for instance in cases of power outage or
when time values were entered manually.
It is possible to activate pre-set functions like break-gong signals, background music, remotely controlled gates, switch
lights ON/OFF, etc. when using system clock and calendar function together All the functions mentioned before can be
programmed for specific days; but also hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly activation is possible. Up to 500 timecontrolled events can be programmed.
3.8
Monitoring
The PROANNOUNCE manager DPM 4000 embodies a monitor amplifier with headphones/speaker output. The
integrated logic-switching circuit provides the opportunity to listen to the signals of any internal input and output.
Assigning external sound sources to the monitor bus is possible as well. This additionally allows monitoring amplifier
outputs or pre-listen to the contents of external voice message memories and other audio devices.
The remote control’s wiring already includes all the cabling necessary for the pre-/post-listen feature when using
remote-controlled amplifiers.
When using the DCS 420 PROANNOUNCE MONITOR MANAGER, easy programming and operating is available. See
also chapter 5.4.7
PROANNOUNCE System User Handbook 1.1
3-3
SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
3.9
Macros
Macro is defined as the combination of several commands, functions, and their parameters in an internal consecutive
sequence. For example a gong signal with specific volume and priority settings has to be transmitted in different calling
zones, while simultaneously activating a control output. In that case the macro consists of the functions “gong” and
"control" with the parameters gong-type, volume setting, priority number, calling zone numbers, and the type and idnumber of the control output.
It is possible to initiate a macro via the special function keys on the paging consoles or to trigger it via control input. It is
also possible to combine a macro with the internal clock or calendar.
The PROANNOUNCE system provides a number of pre-programmed macros, where only individual parameters still
have to be entered. Additionally, it is possible to combine several macros in a sequence. Using pre-defined macros and
sequences lets you create new, user-specified and application-related macros, which basically are capable of
managing any control function imaginable. A total of up to 250 user-macros can be programmed.
3.10
Interfaces
Besides its control inputs and control outputs, the PROANNOUNCE system provides additional interface ports. The
connection of paging consoles to the PROANNOUNCE manager DPM 4000 is performed via serial RS-485 ports. This
allows connecting up to four terminals at a single port. Power amplifiers and the DCS 400 controller are connected to
another independent RS-485 port, which allows direct management of up to 64 power amplifiers and 8 DCS 401.
Connecting a PC is established via serial RS-232 port on the rear panel of the DPM 4000. It is not necessary for the
PC to be permanently connected to the DPM 4000.
An additional RS 485-interface offers the possibility to operate several DPM 4000 in a network.
3.11
Safety Standards
The PROANNOUNCE system complies with all applicable requirements of the IEC 849 standard – electro acoustics
emergency alert PA-systems. The digital PROANNOUNCE manager DPM 4000 guards and monitors its entire internal
functions. All connected paging stations and power amplifiers, including the wiring, are monitored via polling and pilot
tone functions. Using the remote control units in the power amplifiers, it is also possible to monitor the loudspeaker
lines. Of course, the PROANNOUNCE system is also prepared for operation with emergency power supply. In case of
a power outage, the DPM 4000 takes over the entire power management; i. e. all internal and external power
consuming components are switched to stand-by mode. Only when necessary, they are turned on again. This
minimizes the total power consumption efficiently and guarantees maximum operational reliability when the system is
operated from a battery power source.
Fault messages are being displayed in plain text on the paging console displays and a floating contact is provided for
collective fault messages. An automatic protocol facility of the system's individual state of operation is optionally
possible. This protocol is stored in the DPM 4000's internal memory. If necessary, it can be displayed on the screen of
a connected computer or printed out via a printer.

The radio control signal is received. The system clock is synchronized
to the DCF 77 signal.
Blinking, one cycle per The radio control signal is present and the system clock is being
second
synchronized. This procedure can take up to 2 minutes. After
synchronization is complete, the DCF 77 LED light continuously.
Blinking, fast
The radio control signal is detected but its reception is jammed. Readjusting the DCF 77 antenna or choosing a location with improved
reception is recommended.
2. LED READY
This LED indicates the operation mode of the PROANNOUNCE System. After switching the power on, the READY
LED blinks while the system boots. Depending on the complexity of the installation blinking can take several
seconds. After successful initialization, the LED lights, signaling that the system is ready for operation. Whenever
erroneous operation – either in the DPM 4000 or in one of the connected components – is detected, the LED goes
out indicating that a system error occurred. When the system power is OFF, the READY LED is OFF as well.
3. LED POWER
This LED lights as soon as a power source (24 V =, power supply or battery) is connected to the DPM 4000. The
LED does not light when the DPM 4000's power supply is disconnected, switched off or fails.
4. LED FAULT
This LED lights during a reset or when an internal watchdog error is being detected within the DPM 4000. It also
indicates erroneous operation of external system components (power amplifiers, paging stations, relay boards, ...).
The LED is connected to the READY relay on the rear of the appliance, which allows remote indication of system
errors.

5.1.5 2-Channel Paging Station Module (NRS 90215)
This 2-channel audio input module is meant for the
connection of DPC 4000 Series paging consoles. Each of
the two input channels provide RJ-45 sockets allowing
the connection of up to 4 paging stations plus paging
station extensions per input. The microphone terminals
are interconnected via 6-conductor parallel cables. The
module can be installed in slot 1 and slot 2.
Next to the electronically balanced audio input, each input
connector provides a serial RS-485 interface port and the
power supply connection for the paging stations (see
also: pin-assignment of the RJ-45 connector). The paging
stations' power supply employs an electronic,
programmable fuse, through which the maximum output
current can be matched to meet actual system
accommodations. This prevents the entire installation
from malfunction, in case of short-circuit occurring in a
single paging station only.
Input channels can be switched separately onto the
monitor bus and you can monitor the audio signal via
headphones or loudspeaker, either which is connected to
the monitor output. Automatic pilot tone surveillance of
the entire input stage is integrated as well. If necessary,
retrofitting the audio inputs with transformers is possible.

emergency alert installation, connecting security-related consoles to individual inputs is therefore of
major importance.

MIC/LINE + Paging Station Module (NRS 90234)
This 2-channel audio input module is meant for the
connection of DPC 4000 Series paging stations and other
external audio sources. The RJ-45 socket of channel A
allows the connection of up to 4 microphone terminals
plus paging station extensions. The MIC / LINE input of
channel B is furnished through an XLRF-type connector
allowing the connection of microphones, mixers and other
audio signal sources. The module can be installed into
slot 1 and slot 2.
Next to the electronically balanced audio input, the DPC
4000 input connector provides a serial RS-485 interface
and the power supply for the connected paging consoles
(see also pin-assignment of the RJ-45 connector). The
paging stations' power supply employs an electronic,
programmable fuse, through which the maximum output
current can be matched to meet actual system
accommodations.
The MIC / LINE input employs an internal switch (PAD)
providing 30 dB of attenuation. The GAIN-control located
on the appliance's rear panel offers additional control in a
range of 40 dB. The input is electronically balanced and
prepared for retrofitting a transformer. Phantom power
can be switched via jumper. If necessary, a compressor /
figure 5.22 MIC/LINE + paging station module (NRS 90234)
limiter circuit can be incorporated in the audio path.
Input channels can be switched separately to the monitor
bus and you can listen to the signal via headphones or
loudspeaker, either which being connected to the monitor
output. Automatic pilot tone surveillance of the entire
input stage is integrated as well.
Note:
When connecting several paging consoles to a single input, please keep in mind that line
interruption or short-circuit can cause malfunction of several or even all paging stations of that
specific line. In emergency alert installation, connecting security-related consoles to individual
inputs is therefore of major importance.

voltages of either polarity between -31 V and +31 V; for
voltages between 0 and 5 V the inputs are not active
(low), for voltages between 10 V and 31 V the inputs are
active (high). The control inputs can ignite switching
functions or macros either during a change of state or in
any stationary state. This offers the possibility to monitor
line idling currents (e. g. in fire alert system installations).

Note:
The opto-coupler inputs are primarily meant to prevent noise loops that can result from dropping
voltages in long distance cabling. They are not suitable for separating networks from each other.
Therefore, only floating sources should be connected.

PROANNOUNCE – DPC 4000 Paging Consoles
5.2.1 System Overview
The PROANNOUNCE system includes 5 different models of DPC 4000 Series paging stations and one paging
station extension. All microphone terminals employ gooseneck microphones, 6 or 8 function keys and a covered
alarm key. An additional alarm key and a key-locked switch can be retrofitted. The paging stations are available
with 10, 20, 30, or 50 selection keys. All models also employ LC-displays (2 lines with 16 characters each).
The following list provides you with an overview of available paging station models:
DPC 4106
DPC 4510
DPC 4520
DPC 4530
DPC 4550
DPC 4350

8 function keys + 20 selection keys + alarm key
8 function keys + 30 selection keys + alarm key
8 function keys + 50 selection keys + alarm key
paging console extension with 50 selection keys
All paging consoles include the following common features:
·
all functions are processor-controlled
·
configuration data is stored in non-volatile FLASH RAM
·
condenser microphone with pre-amplifier and compressor / limiter circuitry
·
freely programmable key-assignment
·
easy key-labeling through label-strips and MS WORD™ templates
·
analog circuitry surveillance via integrated pilot tone generator
·
processor surveillance via watchdog function
·

·
connection of an external PTT-microphone or audio source
·
piezo buzzer for acoustical alerts
·
an optional loudspeaker can be retrofitted
·
setup-mode allows direct parameter setting at the paging station
·
two-line LC-display
All paging consoles are processor-controlled and extensive monitoring functions are provided. The watchdog
function monitors the processor system while a switchable pilot tone generator monitors the audio section.
Additionally, the internal supply voltage is constantly measured. When it falls below a critical threshold an alert
message is being displayed. The line surveillance function recognizes any line-interruption and/or short-circuits in
the audio and RS-485 control cabling. Upon the detection of failure a corresponding message is displayed.
The PROANNOUNCE Designer software allows comfortably configuring the paging stations. Its graphic,
dialogue-oriented user interface offers effortless assign of key functions, priorities, options, and many other
paging station functions.
Note:
Up to four paging consoles can be connected to a single input of the central unit. However, it
is important to keep the fact in mind that in case of line interruption and short-circuit several
microphone terminals may fail. Despite, one input allows only launching one message at a
time. All other connected paging stations are presented with a busy-message. If these
restrictions are not acceptable, every microphone terminal – or at least all directing stations
and other important paging stations – should have its own input at the central unit.

Selection Keys and LED’s
Depending on the individual paging station model, 10, 20, 30, or 50 selection keys with corresponding LED’s
are provided. The selection keys are used to pre-select areas or groups for the reproduction of messages,
gong or alarm signals, vocal messages, or to assign programs (pressed once = ON, subsequently pressed =
OFF). The LED’s indicate the momentary selection status (also refer to the paragraph “indications”). It is also
possible to assign special functions or no function at all (no function assigned) to the selection keys. Assigning
functions is performed during the configuration procedure via PC.
Note:
2
When shipped, these keys are factory pre-set as area selection keys, where key 1 –
area 1, key 2 – area 2, ..., key n – area n.
ALL key and LED
The ALL key allows the selection of all programmed areas at once for transmitting messages, gong or alarm
signals, vocal messages, or to assign programs. One time pressing selects all areas. The corresponding
LED’s and the ALL LED are lit. Subsequent pressing cancels the selection.
3
CANCEL key
This key offers different functions, depending on the actually selected operation mode, e.g. cancel calling
pattern or cancel program-assignment. Which function is carried out at times is explained in detail in the
paragraph OPERATION.
4
GONG key (ESC) and LED
Pressing this key starts the transmission of a gong signal in the pre-selected areas or groups. The GONG LED
lights or blinks during the transmission of a gong signal. What kind of gong signal is being transmitted is
defined during the configuration procedure. Pressing the STOP key cancels the reproduction of the gong
signal.
While in setup-mode, this key is used to return to ‘normal’ user mode (ESCAPE = leaving setup-mode).
PROANNOUNCE System User Handbook 1.1
5-31
DEVICE DESCRIPTIONS
5
TEXT key (Ú) and LED
Pressing the TEXT key starts a prerecorded message (optional voice reproduction), which is transmitted into
pre-selected areas or groups. The TEXT LED lights or blinks during the transmission of a prerecorded
message. The desired text message is selected during the configuration procedure. Pressing the STOP key
cancels the reproduction of a text message.
While in setup-mode, pressing the TEXT key decreases the selected parameter value (parameter entry).
6
TALK key and BUSY-LED
This key activates a message for pre-selected areas or groups. The BUSY LED lights during transmission.
The TALK key has to be pressed until the end of a message. The BUSY LED blinks when one or several
areas are busy or when an event with higher priority setting interrupts the output message (see paragraph
indications). In the latter, it is necessary to repeat the message.
7
ON key (<) and LED
This key turns the system’s power on or off. Turning the power on can take several seconds. The ON LED
blinks while the system boots. The ON LED lights steadily when the system is operational. To prevent
inadvertent erroneous operation pressing the key for at least 1 second is necessary when turning the power
off. It is also possible to prohibit the operation of the ON key during the configuration procedure.
In setup-mode this key is used to select the previous parameter (parameter selection).
8
STOP key (Ù)
Pressing the STOP key cancels an output alarm signal or text message. Terminating an alarm signal is also
possible by subsequently pressing the ALARM key. Only events that were triggered from a specific paging
console can be stopped from the exact terminal with the exception of the directing station. This terminal allows
canceling all signals.
While in setup-mode, this key increases the selected parameter value (parameter entry).
9
PROGRAM key (>) and LED
Pressing the PROGRAM key selects the program assign mode. The selection keys are used in this mode to
assign a program (background music) to the desired areas or groups. The PROGRAM LED lights while being
in the program assign mode. In this case the selection LED’s indicate the areas / groups the program is being
transmitted into.
Keeping this key pressed and simultaneously pressing the STOP key selects the setup-mode and the
PROGRAM LED starts blinking. Now you can alter preferences or make other changes as described in the
chapter 5.2.7 Paging Station Configuration In Setup Mode.
When in setup-mode, this key is used to select the following parameter (parameter selection).
10 ALARM key and Indicator
Pressing the ALARM key starts an alarm signal that is transmitted into all areas. The alarm indicator lights
when launching an alarm. Pressing the STOP key or subsequently pressing the ALARM key terminates the
alarm signal. What kind of alarm signal is being transmitted is defined during the configuration procedure of
the PROANNOUNCE system.
11 Optional Key-Slots
These slots allow retrofitting an additional covered key and a key-locked switch. The front panel is already
prepared for the installation of two 18 mm pushbuttons / switches. You only have to cut suitable holes into the
front panel foil. Internal fittings and cables are also already prepared. The newly installed switches’ functions
are assigned during the configuration procedure via PC; e.g.: second alarm-pushbutton for transmitting an
alarm signal into specific areas (selective alarm), or assigning the system ON / OFF function to the key-locked
switch.
Detailed information and installation instructions are provided in the chapter 5.2.13 Optionally Available
Accessories.

12 Microphone
After pressing the TALK button and after the BUSY LED lights making announcements in pre-selected areas
or groups is possible using the integrated gooseneck microphone. The optimum distance from the microphone
is approximately 20 to 35 cm. The microphone pre-amplifier embodies a limiter to control signal peaks and
protect the system against overdrive.
The extension socket (EXT) allows connecting a second microphone with TALK button. Assigning the function
(area, group) of the external microphone is performed during the configuration via PC.
13 Display
Depending on the actual operational status of the system, the LC-display with 2 lines of 16 characters each,
shows information on time, operation mode, user notes, setting up, fault messages including precise device /
module specification, etc.
5.2.4 Connections

5.2.5 Key-Labeling
Labeling the keys of paging consoles is done using label-strips, which can be slid in from the side. The label-strips
for the 6 or 8 function keys are slid in from the right while the selection key strips – for 10, 20, 30, or 50 selection
keys – are inserted from left. Therefore, you have to detach the correspondent side panel (2 screws) and insert
the labeled strip into the gap between the front panel and the front panel foil.
The most convenient way of printing the labels is to utilize the word processing software MS-WORD. A suitable
MS-WORD template file is supplied. Please note that with different printer models margin-settings may vary.
Please adjust the layout form according to the individual specifications of your printer model.

5.2.6 Operation
This chapter explains all functions that are used during general operation.
Selective Call
The user can launch calls or announcements into freely selectable areas or groups.
Pressing a single or several selection keys defines areas or groups where a call is launched into – corresponding
LED’s will light. By pressing the key of an already pre-selected line once again deactivates that line and the
corresponding LED goes out.
After making a selection, pressing the TALK-button ignites the call. Prior hereto, the BUSY LED allows checking
whether all lines and the paging station input are actually free. If single lines or the terminal input are busy with
lower priority transmissions, the BUSY LED will blink slowly. Whilst making an announcement is possible, this will
interrupt any other transmitted event. If single lines or the terminal input are busy with higher priority signals, the
BUSY LED will vastly blink and the calling attempt is ignored (also refer to the description of indications).
The BUSY LED lights during the transmission of an announcement. The TALK button has to be pressed during
the whole message. Until the user makes any changes, the defined selection stays memorized, even after
releasing the TALK button. Pressing the CANCEL key de-selects the entire selection.
Additionally and in case of a pre-gong signal has previously been programmed, the GONG LED will light during
the transmission of the pre-gong signal.
Collective Call
The announcement is launched into all areas of the entire installation.
The procedure is similar to making a selective call. First, all areas of the installation are selected by pressing the
ALL key. Pressing the TALK button activates the collective call. During the transmission of a call, all area and/or
group LED’s as well as the ALL LED will light (also refer to the paragraph “indications”). The TALK button has to
be pressed down until the end of the announcement. BUSY LED indication and the behavior of the pre-gong
signal are equivalent to the selective call.
Direct Call
Principally, assigning a direct call to any selection key (area key, group key, ALL key) is possible via PC during
the configuration procedure. This allows making an announcement directly by pressing the desired selection key
– without need to press the TALK key. For direct calls the BUSY LED also signals the status of correspondent
areas (free, busy with lower priority signal, busy with higher priority signal; see “indications”). When shipped, there
is no factory pre-set direct call programmed.
Gong (Chime) Signal
By factory the Gong key is programmed as a general call
A gong signal can also be transmitted into any selectable area or group of the entire installation (if programmed).
First, the desired areas / groups have to be selected; either by use of the selection keys (selective gong) or with
the ALL key (general gong). Pressing the GONG key releases the gong signal. While the gong signal is being
transmitted, the GONG LED lights continuously or blinks (also refer to indications). The gong’s priority can be set
to 6 or 7. Therefore it has priority over announcements from any paging station, except for the directing terminal
(priority 10).
Pressing the STOP key cancels the transmission of a gong signal.

DEVICE DESCRIPTIONS
Text Message
A text message recorded via the optional message module or using an external recording/playback device can be
transmitted into any selectable area or group of the entire installation.
First, the desired areas / groups have to be selected; either by use of the selection keys or via the ALL key.
Pressing the TEXT key starts the reproduction of a prerecorded message that had been assigned during
configuration. While the text message is being transmitted, the TEXT LED lights steadily or blinks (also refer to
indications). The text message priority can be set to values between 2 and 8.
Pressing the STOP key cancels the transmission of a text message.
General Alarm
A general alarm signal is always transmitted to all lines of the entire installation.
Pressing the covered ALARM key launches the integrated alarm. The key lights during the transmission of the
alarm signal. The priority of the alarm can be set between 7 and 9. Therefore it has priority over any
announcement or other event, except for those that were ignited from the directing paging station (priority 10).
Pressing the STOP key or subsequently pressing the ALARM key cancels the alarm.
Selective Alarm
When a paging station is equipped with a second ALARM key providing the option for selective alarms, it is
possible to transmit alarm signals into selected lines.
Similar to the procedure for making a selective call you first have to select areas or groups to which the alarm
signal shall be transmitted. Afterwards, pressing the covered ALARM key starts the selective alarm. The key lights
during the transmission of an alarm. Already now, you are able to enter the lines for the following alarm.
Pressing the STOP key or subsequently pressing the ALARM key cancels the alarm.
When shipped, there is no factory pre-set selective alarm pre-programmed.
Note:
The launch of an alarm does not depend on a paging console’s priority setting it had been
activated from. Launching an alarm is possible from any microphone terminal at any time,
even when the system is in stand-by mode. A running alarm is optically and occasionally also
acoustically indicated at every paging station.
Canceling Signals
Pressing the STOP key cancels alarms, gong signals and text message transmissions. Events can only be
terminated at the paging station they were launched from with the exception of the directing terminal (paging
console with the highest priority possible 10). Through the directing station it is possible to cancel any signal in
progress.
5-36
PROANNOUNCE System User Handbook 1.1
DEVICE DESCRIPTIONS
System ON / OFF
The ON key switches a PROANNOUNCE system ON or OFF. Mostly, it is not intended that any paging station be
provided with the possibility to do so. Thus, this function can be programmed via PC-configuration.
When the system is in stand-by mode, the ON LED is off. Pressing the ON key turns the PROANNOUNCE
system’s power on which can take up to 10 seconds, while the ON LED is blinking. Once the system is ready for
operation, the ON LED lights continuously (which also applies for all paging stations of the entire installation).
To switch the system OFF, you have to press the ON key for approximately 1 second. This is to prevent
inadvertently turning off the system.
Pressing an ALARM key or igniting an alarm sequence at external terminals automatically switches the
PROANNOUNCE system’s power on and boots the system.
Program Assignment
Activating this feature allows the assignment of programs to individual areas and groups of the entire installation
during the PC-configuration procedure.
First, by pressing the PROGRAM key, the paging station has to be set to program-assign mode. Pressing a single
or several selection keys assigns the outputted program (background music) to the selected areas and groups.
The corresponding LED’s are lit. Program transmission has always the lowest priority (1). The signal level is
determined during system configuration. The assignment stays memorized until the selection keys are pressed
again. Pressing the CANCEL key erases the entire assignment-pattern.
Subsequently pressing the PROGRAM key or any other function key cancels program-assign mode. It is also
automatically canceled after approximately 15 seconds.
In single-program configuration the music reproduction into all areas of the installation is attenuated for the time of
an announcement. In double-program configuration parallel transmission of a background music program into
rooms that are not part of an actual announcement selection is possible as well. If every line incorporates its own
LF-output and separate power amplifiers, mixing announcements and background programs is possible in any
way.
Special Functions
Generally, assigning a function to each selection key is possible. This allows utilizing a paging station to control
the lighting, door openers, blinds, etc.; even controlling volume settings is possible through the use of the UP /
DOWN keys.
When shipped, there are no special functions assigned.

5.2.7 Paging Console Configuration In Setup Mode
Configuring paging consoles is preferably performed on the central unit via computer and using the
PROANNOUNCE Designer software. This represents the most convenient way without any limitation, while a
paging terminal itself offers only limited programming ability.
Several key functions differ between setup-mode and operation mode. Alternate functions are marked on the right
top corner of the individual key area.
Pressing PROGRAM key and STOP key simultaneously for at least 1 second – the PROGRAM LED starts
blinking – engages a paging station’s setup-mode.
Note:
Paging stations where program-assignment has been activated indicate the program
assignment-pattern for a short period of time.
Using the ‘<‘ and ‘>‘ keys lets you step through the setup menu items in forward and backward direction
(parameter selection). Parameter number and name are shown on the display.
The following table shows an overview of parameters and their meaning:

The ‘Ù‘ and ‘Ú‘ keys activate / deactivate corresponding parameters or increment / decrement according
parameter values. For directly entering numerical parameters, use selection keys 1 to 10, where the 10-key
represents the “0”.
Pressing the ESC key returns to ‘normal’ operation. The setup-mode is also automatically canceled when for
approximately 15 seconds no entry or change has been made. All parameters are automatically stored.
1
Address
Paging consoles accept the assignment of addresses between 1 and 16. The setting is generally performed
using the numerical keys 1 to 10, where the 10-key represents the “0”. For paging stations without selection
keys, the address has to be set using the ‘Ù‘ und ‘Ú‘ keys.
CAUTION:
When shipped all paging station addresses are set to OFF (no address). Therefore it
is important to assign a correct address to a microphone terminal, before the first
operation. Within an installation terminal addresses have to be assigned exclusively;
a specific address can exist only once!
When applying operation voltage for the first time, paging consoles start up in entry
mode right away.
5-38
PROANNOUNCE System User Handbook 1.1
DEVICE DESCRIPTIONS
2
Password (does not apply to paging consoles without selection keys)
3 or 4-digit passwords provide protection for paging consoles against unauthorized operation. Password
protection can be established in two levels. The first level is the ‘normal’ user-level. In case this level is
password-protected, the paging station cannot be operated except for launching an alarm. The second level is
the setup-level. If this level is password-protected, the setup-mode is not accessible while unlimited ‘normal’
operation is possible.
Level 1 and 2 passwords are assigned and transferred to the individual paging stations during the PCconfiguration procedure. As factory preset the level 1 password is set to ‘111’ and the level 2 password is
‘2222’; level 2 (setup-mode) is password-protected (factory pre-set).
To prevent a paging station from unwanted access, you have to enter setup-mode and select parameter 2
“password”. Depending on which function of the paging console you want to protect, by using the selection
keys you have to enter either the 3-digit level 1 password or the 4-digit level 2 password. Protection is now
activated and operation (1st level) and/or programming (2nd level) are not possible anymore. The blinking
PROGRAM LED indicates this status.
The protection is canceled by re-entering the correct password while being in setup-mode.
3
Pre-Gong Signal
It is possible to program a pre-gong signal that is heard before an announcement. The pre-gong signal is
transmitted into the selected areas when pressing the TALK-button. You can begin with your announcement
during the transmission of the pre-gong signal; you can talk “into” the pre-gong.
Using the arrow keys (<>) first select parameter 3. Now, you can ignite the pre-gong signal with the ‘Ù‘ key or
cancel it by using the ‘Ú‘ key. The pre-gong function can also be activated or deactivated during PCconfiguration.
4
Buzzer
The integrated buzzer can be programmed as acoustic alert signal. During failure, malfunction, or as general
alert a buzzing sound is heard. When an alarm has been launched, the buzzing can be heard for the whole
period of the alarm.
First, select parameter 4 using the arrow keys (<>). Now, you can activate the buzzer by pressing the ‘Ù‘ key.
Pressing the ‘Ú‘ key deactivates the buzzer. The buzzer function can also be activated during PCconfiguration.
5
Compressor
The paging stations’ microphone pre-amplifier incorporates compressor / limiter circuitry. While the limiter is
constantly activated, the compressor can be switched ON or OFF. When the compressor is engaged, lowlevel signals are amplified to a higher degree, which results in constant talking levels although the distance
between the announcer and the microphone varies. Besides, you have to keep in mind that also
environmental noise is amplified. Thus, on-site testing with and without compressor will reveal which results in
the better performance.

The PROANNOUNCE system allows setting 10 priority levels (highest priority = 10, lowest priority = 1) that
include announcements, as well as alarm and gong signals, and vocal message reproduction. A higher prioritized
event principally interrupts any other event with a lower priority setting. For events with equal priority the earlier
launched signal is continued; has priority over the latter.

5.2.10 DPC 4350 Paging Station Extension
The DPC 4350 paging station extension provides selection keys only. It is employed whenever a higher amount
than 50 lines need to be accessed or when an installation’s requirement of group and special function keys
exceeds the existing amount of selection keys. The DPC 4350 can be easily combined with any other paging
station model. The following list shows the amounts of maximally accessible lines for various combinations:
Combination

The extension unit is directly connected to the extension interface of the main paging station using the supplied 8pole RJ-45 cable and plugging it into the EXT-socket. A single paging station then consists of two devices that
report to a common address. Therefore the central unit recognizes them as one single microphone terminal with
an increased amount of selection keys. Also from the viewpoint of the user the two devices act as only one paging
station; i.e. the selection keys of the main and the slave paging station provide equal access to their assigned
areas, groups and special functions.
Note:
During the configuration of the system using the PROANNOUNCE Designer software, it is
important that the main paging station’s EXT-socket is configured for the connection of a DPC 4350
extension.
The extension unit can only be operated together with DPC 45.. or DPC 40.. Series paging console
models!

5.3.2 Instructions For Using Remote-Power Amps:
1.
Each power amplifier has to be set to the exact address as it is specified in the PROANNOUNCE Designer
software (A=low value part, B=high value part). Address setting is performed using hexadecimal code.
2.
An RS-485 connection needs to be established between the DPM 4000 (remote socket) and maximally eight
DCS 401, and maximally 64 amplifiers (DPA 4411 counts as a single unit). The RS-485 bus may not exceed a
maximum length of 1,000m and must follow a line-structure with stub cables being as short as possible. When
including more than 30 amplifiers, both ends of the bus have to be terminated with 120 ohms resistors. This
bus is also used for monitor signal transmission.
3.
Connect the amplifier(s) to an operation voltage source.
4.
Perform a Netscan procedure via the PROANNOUNCE Designer software. In ‘normal’ operation the statusLED’s on the rear panel of the amplifiers have to light periodically, depending on the number of participants on
the bus (communication with the DPM 4000).
5.
Within the communication window of the PROANNOUNCE Designer software checking which addresses are
registered as participants is possible using the command “/AMP/AVLBL ?”.
6.
Once a participant on the bus had been disconnected from the DPM 4000 for a short term (e.g. because the
RS-485 line had temporarily been disconnected), it is included again in the query sequence after 10 sec.
5.3.3

DCS 400 Control System
5.4.1 Characteristics
DCS 400 Series modules increase the PROANNOUNCE system's control functionality in miscellaneous ways. These
printed board assemblies in the Europe standard format are usually inserted at the rear of a PA-system rack-shelf or
installed in suitable distribution boxes. The DCS 400 system consists of five different modules and additional
extensions:
· DCS 401
control module for controlling relays, logic inputs, analog inputs and outputs, and rotary encoders
· DCS 408
relay module with 5 line relays for 100 V systems
· DCS 409
relay module with 5 NF or control relays
· DCS 412
logic input module with 12 floating, bi-polar inputs that are linked via opto-couplers
· DCS 416
analog I/O module offering 8 inputs and 8 outputs for 0 V DC to 10 V DC
· DCS 420
monitor module with 7-segment display, meter instrument and monitor loudspeaker
· NRS 90240
rotary encoder
A PROANNOUNCE installation allows integrating a maximum of up to 8 DCS 401 control modules. A single control
module can host up to 12 relay boards of the types DCS 408 / DCS 409 in any sequence. Besides, it is possible to
connect up to 5 logic input modules, 2 analog I/O modules, and 2 rotary encoders.
The PROANNOUNCE operating system defines the total amount of supported control inputs and outputs. The
PROANNOUNCE system can manage following amounts of different cards:
· Control module DCS 401
max. 8 boards
· Relays modules DCS 408 / DCS 409
max. 48 boards = 240 relays
· Logic input module DCS 412
max. 10 boards = 120 logic inputs
· Analog I/O module DCS 416
max. 8 boards
· Monitor module
max. 1 per DCS 401
= 16 rotary encoders
= 128 analog inputs / outputs
Note:
The power supply of individual boards can be provided either via RJ-45 connection (DCS 401), flatwire cables (DCS 408, DCS 409, DCS 412, DCS 416) or via 2 binding posts (±24 V) that are
located on each board. The current that runs through the RJ-45 connection or the flat-wire cables
has not to exceed 1 A max. The current for modules that are connected to the DCS 401 via flatwire cables may not exceed 700 mA max. The connectors CN7, CN8, CN9 share an electronic
fuse. For higher currents, it is important that under all circumstances the binding posts are used
instead. When cascading several modules, it is necessary to provide the power supply anew via
binding post connection. Directly cascading up to 7 or 10 modules is admissible while taking power
consumption features of the different types of incorporated modules into consideration. All modules
need to be fed from a single power source! Data inter-exchange amongst modules has to be
established via flat-wire cabling.
CAUTION:
For safety reasons, DCS 400 modules may only be installed in rack-shelf systems or enclosures
that are locked and may only be opened by means of a tool (e.g. screw-driver, special key, etc.).
When installing modules, make sure to follow all requirements of the EN60065:1993 regulation.
Obeying the regulations for interference-emission (EN55022, class B) and interference-stability
(EN50082-2), DCS 400 module printed board assemblies need to be grounded at their fixing points
(e.g. using a metal bolt).

5.4.2 DCS 401 CONTROL MODULE
The module is to be mounted on the rear of a PA-system rack-shelf or inside of a suitable distribution box. It serves as
an interface for the connection of relay boards, logic input boards, analog I/O boards, and rotary encoders. The module
is controlled via the RS-485 remote port of the DPM 4000.
A single DCS 401 control module can host a maximum of 12 relay modules DCS 408 / DCS 409, five logic input
modules DCS 412, two analog input / output modules DCS 416, and two rotary encoders. Relay modules are
connected to the CN7 connector using the supplied flat-wire cable. DCS 408 or DCS 409 boards can be installed in any
order. Logic input modules are connected to the CN8 connector while analog I/O modules have to be connected to
CN9. The CN12 connector allows the connection of two rotary encoders.
Features
· Two RJ-45 connectors for connecting the DPM 4000 and for cascading several DCS 401 control modules
· Galvanic separation of the RS-485 interface port
· One connector each for relay modules, logic input modules and analog signal modules

CAUTION:
Each participant connected to the DPM 4000 remote port has to have an exclusive address. Each
address can be used only once.
Installation Note
Mounting the module and establishing the connections are solely admissible when performed in accordance to VDE
0100 and EN 60065 regulations.

PROANNOUNCE Hardware Configuration
6.1.1 DCS 400
When configuring and initially operating the DCS 400 system, please proceed as follows:
1. Cabling
➨ Use the supplied flat-wire cable for connecting the relay modules DCS 408, DCS 409 in the desired order to the
control module DCS 401. Mixed installation of relay modules is possible; numbering the relays is type-specific and
has to be performed according to their sequence.
example:
Sequence

➨ Use the supplied flat-wire cable for connecting the analog input / output modules DCS 416 to the control module
DCS 401. Numbering the analog inputs and outputs has to be performed according to their sequence.
example:
Sequence

2. Voltage Supply
➨ Insert bridges serve to select the voltage supply connector of different modules. Please refer to the corresponding
description of individual modules or to their block diagrams.
CAUTION:
The maximum current handling capacity of RJ-45 connections and flat-wire cables has to be
observed under all circumstances!
3. DCS 401 Addresses
➨ Using the Dip switch S1, the addresses of all connected control modules DCS 401 have to be set to different
numbers (addresses 0 - 7).

4. Before initial operation
➨ Connect a 24V source. Now, each DCS 401 control module verifies whether any local modules (DCS 408, DCS
409, DCS 412, DCS 416) are connected, and if so, how many. The red LED blinks when the initialization process
has not been performed yet.
➨ Only for DCS 401 control modules with software version previous to V1.1:
Each
DCS 401 control module is initialized by pressing the S2 button for approximately 3 seconds. Afterwards, the red
LED has to light continuously signaling that initialization was successfully completed.
➨ Launch netscan (menu communication / netscan within the PROANNOUNCE Designer software). Now, the DCS
401 modules are being initialized. Afterwards, the DPM 4000 runs a test verifying all addresses and recognizes the
amount of DCS 401 control modules installed in the system. All components sharing the network are listed in the
component list. This procedure takes approximately 20 seconds. Afterwards, the system is ready for operation.

6.2 DMM 4650 Interconnection
Interconnecting the DMM 4650 is established through control inputs and outputs on the DPM 4000 or on the DCS 400
monitoring system (DCS 408, DCS 409, DCS 412).
Every single sequence needs a control output for the start / stop command and a control input for the transmission of
the return signal. The control output starts the DMM 4650 sequence with a positive slope and stops it with a negative
slope. The return signal's control input reacts to the negative slope and activates the macro "Message Stop".
Additionally, in most cases a control input is needed for the DMM 4650 READY / FAULT signal. The following cabling
example offers a possibility for controlling three different sequences including fault recognition. This is accomplished by
utilizing Port A on the DMM 4650 and the 8 I/O control module (IN 5 - 8 and OUT 5 - 8) of the DPM 4000.

Using an adapter cable (2 x RJ-45 to 25-pole D-Sub), the shown cabling is established with relative little effort.
For a larger amount of sequences, it is necessary to additionally utilize Ports B, C, and D on the DMM 4650. Triggering
the sequence start / stop is accomplished through additional control outputs on the DPM 4000 control module (OUT 2 4) or via relay contacts on the DCS 408 respectively on the DCS 409 modules. The return signal is present at the
control inputs IN 1 - 4 of the DPM 4000 control module; additional control inputs can be provided via DCS 412
modules.
For controlling a DMM 4650 sequence, first you have to assign the start / stop and return message lines in the
PROANNOUNCE Designer software. Afterwards, defining the audio signals in the window “External Audio Signals
DMM 4650” is possible (the window opens when double-clicking onto the DMM 4650 symbol), where start / stop and
return message lines are assigned to individual audio signals. When this is done, starting a DMM 4650 sequence from
a paging console is already possible. Individual zones are assigned in the paging console dialog (key-assignment).
Defining additional triggers and zones is possible for the case that different events than a paging station keystroke
(external triggers, timer) are used to start a DMM 4650 sequence. Displaying text on the LCD during the output of a
DMM 4650 sequence is possible as well.
Programming examples for interconnecting the DMM 4650 are provided in the file Demo99_2.pmx, which is installed
during the installation of the PROANNOUNCE Designer software within the following directory:
/proannounce/examples/.
