Overview
This manual covers the installation of the Extron PoleVault™ System in a drop ceiling room with a wood or concrete
structural ceiling above. If the location has a concrete or beam style ceiling and no drop ceiling, alternative ceiling
mounts can be obtained separately from Extron (see 2c, "Optional items", page 1-9). For those types of installation,
refer to the individual mounting hardware user's manuals for the method.
It is assumed that the installer has some knowledge and experience of A/V, electrical, or electronic device
installation. This manual guides the A/V installer through the steps for installation and connection of each of the
system’s component parts.
It may be that the locations for the devices (e.g., wall plates, projector, and screen) have been pre-determined.
However, some room installation examples are given to help in installations where final location is yet to be
determined.
The PoleVault System
Extron PoleVault Systems are easy-to-use, network-enabled, all-inclusive packages, making them ideal for singleprojector K-12 classrooms. PoleVault Systems use economical twisted pair cables for transmitting signals and
include network connectivity for Web-based asset management, monitoring, and control.
N The hardware and devices listed on the inventory pages have individual user manuals which have detailed safety
information, installation, set-up, and configuration instructions, and should be referred to as needed.
For operation and set up of the projector, screen, and input devices, refer to the relevant manufacturer's manuals
supplied with those devices.

Optional Accessory Installation — PPC 25
The Priority Page Controller (PPC 25) momentarily silences classroom audio whenever a page is made from a public
address (PA) system.
For detailed information, refer to the PPC 25 Installation Instructions, supplied with the device.
N The Priority Page Controller works with traditional 25 V or 70 V and 4/8 ohm PA systems. It is not designed
for, and may not work properly with, two-way intercoms, or systems that are IP-based or use digital clocks.
Priority Page Controller included parts:
•
Priority Page Controller
•
Priority Page Sensor
•
UL-compliant junction box with a cable clamp and a lid
•
35' (10.7 m) of sensor cable
•
Y-cable for sharing power with another unit
Installation Procedure
W
All structural steps, anchoring, and
electrical installation should be performed
by qualified personnel in accordance with
local and national building codes, fire and
safety codes, and/or local and national
electrical codes.
To meet the plenum rating requirement, the Priority Page
Sensor assembly must be installed in a UL-compliant
junction box with a cover and all cables to and from the
sensor must be plenum rated.
1.
Choose suitable locations for the controller and sensor. The
controller must be located close to the PVS 204SA and its
power supply. The sensor must be located near, and in series
with, the speakers.
2.
If the sensor is to be located in a plenum space, the junction
box (provided) can be used. Knock out an opening at one
end of the junction box and attach the cable clamp (see
figure at right). Secure the box where the sensor will go.
3.
Disconnect the PA system speaker cable from the speaker.
Remove the outer protective jacket from the speaker cable to
expose the two speaker wires from the sensor to the speaker
(as shown at right). Do not remove the inner protective
jackets that cover the individual wires.
If the sensor is to be located in a plenum space, feed a loop
of one of the exposed speaker wires through the cable
clamp into the junction box. The other wire must bypass
the sensor to be connected later directly to the speaker.
4.
Open the top of the Priority Page Sensor and loop the speaker
wire that is inside the junction box, tightly around the top
part of the sensor.

6. Cut an 18" (45 cm) section from the unterminated end of the
supplied blue sensor cable. Use it to connect the Relay Out
port on the Priority Page Controller to the Mute and Ground
pins on the PoleVault PVS 204SA Vol/Mute port (see the
figure at right). Polarity need not be observed.
N Do not connect either of the outputs from the
Priority Page Controller to the 10V port on
the PVS 204SA switcher. The output relay must
connect only to the PVS 204SA switcher and not
to a MediaLink controller.

Testing and Adjustment Procedure
The fully installed system is shown below To test that the
classroom audio is muted when a PA system announcement (page)
occurs:
1. Turn the classroom audio on.
2. Speak into the PA system microphone. The classroom audio
should be muted while the PA system page occurs and be
restored when the page ends.
3.
4.
If the Priority Page Controller fails to mute the classroom
audio during a page, turn the Sensitivity adjustment, on the
rear panel of the controller, clockwise.

If the classroom audio is muted without a page occurring,
turn the Sensitivity adjustment counterclockwise

5.
If the classroom audio is muted for too long a time after a
page, or is restored too early, check the Time DIP switch
settings. A short time delay is necessary so that if the PA
system announcer pauses briefly during the announcement,
the classroom audio is not restored prematurely. Set the
switches so that the output relay will remain closed for a set
time after a PA announcement has ended.
