DIGITAL REMOTE HEADS OVERVIEW
5000DRH Series Digital Remote Heads
The Firecom 5000DRH Series Digital Remote Heads, when used with Firecom noise attenuating headsets, provide protection from
hearing loss that can occur from exposure to high noise levels, while also providing each user clear communication with the other crew
members.
New Features:
• Waterproof Remote Head for outdoor installations
• Squelch control
• Models available for 1, 2, 3, or 4 radios
Each crew member will hear all radio traffic and be able to communicate over the intercom. Crew members wearing Radio-Transmit
headsets may transmit over the apparatus radio from any headset position in the system. “Intercom Only” headsets will not transmit
over the radio.
There are 4 models of Remote Heads in the 5000DRH Series as shown below.
Model 5200DRH
Model 5100DRH
Model 5300DRH
Model 5400DRH

SYSTEM ORIENTATION
This section provides an overview of the 5000DRH Series Digital Intercom System and an introduction to its individual components.
Figure 2 shows a typical system. Refer to this diagram for each component.
REMOTE HEAD
A Remote Head can be connected to the main control unit to control the intercom from a remote location. Up to 5 remotes heads can
be connected to the digital intercom by utilizing an RJ-12 splitter or by splicing into the 6 conductor modular cable.
INTERCOM
The main control unit for the 5000DRH Series Intercom System which contains all the controls and interface circuitry.
WIRELESS BASE STATION
Provides wireless communications between wireless headset users and belt pack users, and intercom and radio users.
2-WAY RADIO
The existing 2-way radio in the apparatus.
MOBILE RADIO INTERFACE CABLE
Provides the interface connections between the 5000DRH Series Intercom Unit and the 2-way radio in the apparatus. There are many
cable assemblies available; the cable needed depends on the make and model of your radio. Contact your local Firecom Dealer for
more information regarding an Interface Cable specific to your radio.
POWER CABLE ASSEMBLY
Provides the power connections for the 5000DRH Series Intercom Unit. The power connections should be made at the same place as
the power connections for your radio.
HM-10 HEADSET MODULES
The headset will be plugged into the Headset Module (HM-10) which is the standard module for headset-to-system interface.
PP-20 PUMP PANEL MODULE
A water-resistant Headset Module used on the exterior of the apparatus (e.g. at the Pump Panel, at the tail-board, etc.).
CA CABLES
Six-conductor flat cable which connects the 5000DRH Series Intercom Unit to the Wireless Bases, HM-10, PP-20 Headset Modules,
and the Remote Intercom.

INSTALLATION
INSTALLING A REMOTE HEAD:
Remote Heads can be connected to the Digital Intercom unit by plugging the CA Cable plug into the Remote connector shown in
Figure 4. A remote head can be installed on a mounting bracket or flush mount to any flat surface.
Included Mounting Hardware (with remote head):
(4) #6x.75in sheet metal screws
(1) .28 ID x .56 OD x .25 in black rubber grommet
Included Mounting Hardware (with mounting bracket):
(4) #6 x.50in sheet metal screws
(4) #6 x.75in Machine Screw
(4) #6-32 Hex Nuts
(4) #6 Split Washer
(1) .50” ID Snap-In Grommet

Remove the 4 Torx bolts (T-10) and nuts from the corners of the remote head
Use the bracket as a template to mark and drill (4) mounting holes: 7/64" diameter for sheet metal screws or 5/ 32" for
machine screws
For an installation where the wire passes through the mounting surface, drill a 3/8" hole and install the supplied rubber
grommet. Pass the wire through.
For inside installation, mount the panel using the supplied sheet metal screws (4), making sure the cable is not pinched
Recommended torque : 10 in-lbs
Determine the correct length for the CA cable, and cut cable to correct length.

Before mounting the bracket, drill a 3/4" hole at the desired wire pass-through location.
Snap the grommet into the bracket as shown in (Figure 5) and then use the bracket as a template to
mark the mounting holes.
Drill (4) mounting holes: 7/64" for #6 sheet metal screws or 9/64" for #6 machine screws. Mount the bracket using the included
hardware
Secure the Remote Head to the front of the bracket with the included machine screws, split washers,
and nuts as shown in Figure 5. Recommended torque : 10 in-lbs
Thread the cable through the bracket assembly as shown in (Figure 5).
Using the supplied cable ties secure the CA Cable to the bracket anchors as shown (Figure 5).

Connecting Multiple Remote Heads
Up to five remote heads can be used to control a digital intercom. To install multiple remote heads, contact Firecom for a ‘Y’
adapter (PN: A00-0027-10), or splice multiple CA Cables together. Refer to Figure 9 for wiring diagram.

MODULAR PLUG INSTALLATION
This section describes the installation of the RJ-12 Modular Plug onto the flat CA Cable.
1. Using the cutter blade on the crimping tool (labeled A in Figure 6), cut the flat CA Cable so the cut is clean and
90 degrees to the sides of the cable.
2. Fully insert one end of the CA Cable between the stripping blades (labeled C in Figure 6) until the end of the cable
hits the stop (labeled B in Figure 6).

6.
Squeeze the handles of the crimping tool together until the tool bottoms out.
While holding the handles together, pull the cable out of the tool.
The stripped insulation should expose approximately 3/16” of wire (Figure 7).
Push a RJ-12 Modular Plug into the plug holder on the crimping tool (labeled D in Figure 6) until the release tab on the plug locks
into position.
7. Holding the cable so that the printed side of the cable is toward the release-tab on the plug, push the cable into the plug as far as it
will go.
ALWAYS make sure the printed side of the cable is facing the release-tab on the RJ-12 Modular Plug (Figure 8). This
ensures proper orientation of the plug on each end of the cable.
8. Squeeze the tool handles COMPLETELY together. You may feel the crimper punching the
contacts through the insulation on the wires.
9. Let the handles spring open.
10. Push down on the release-tab on the RJ-12 Modular Plug (Figure 8) and remove the RJ-12
Modular Plug from the crimping tool.
11. Inspect the plug to ensure that the cable is held securely in place.

SYSTEM TEST
REMOTE HEAD TEST
1. Press the VOLUME up and down buttons on the Remote Head front panel. The Main Intercom LED’s should show the volume level
changes.
2. Press the SQUELCH up and down buttons on the Remote Head front panel. The Main Intercom LED’s should show the squelch level
changes.
3. Press the AUX 1 button on the Remote Head front panel to light the green and blue LED’s. The Main Intercom LED’s should show
the same LED changes for AUX 1. Repeat the operations test for AUX 2, 3, and CELL buttons.
4. Press the RADIO A button on the Remote Head front panel to light the yellow, green, blue, and red LED’s. The Main Intercom LED’s
should show the same LED changes for RADIO A. Repeat the operations test for RADIO B, C, and D.
ADVANCED TROUBLESHOOTING
REMOTE HEAD DOES NOT WORK
1. Make sure the CA cable plug is inserted completely into the Remote port of the Main Intercom.
2. Inspect the CA cable plug end to insure the plug is wired correctly (Figure 9)
3. Contact Firecom for a Return Materials Authorization (RMA) number to return the Remote Head for repair.
