Overview
Standard Features
GE’s StarCall family of intercommunication and timekeeping solutionsbrings usability, flexibility, and cost effectiveness within easy
reach of all industrial/commercial/ institutional settings, including
schools, offices, small businesses, and correctional facilities.
• Advanced Multiprocessor Design
StarCall lets you determine the level of sophistication you need for
your application by offering three communication and timekeeping
feature sets – each geared to a specific level of service; each offering precisely the capabilities you need to get the job done right.
This layered solution means you won’t be shoehorned into a system
that can’t keep pace with the needs of your building, and you won’t
find yourself rattling around in a system heavy with costly features
that go unused. It also means there is always a clear and cost-effective migration path to higher-end features and increased capacity, should building expansion or changes in occupancy warrant an
upgrade in the future.
Regardless of the StarCall feature set, your communication and
timekeeping system will incorporate the very latest technology in
a powerful package engineered to deliver exquisite performance,
and built to provide reliable service in even the most demanding
settings.

headline this powerful suite with cost-effective features designed
for maximum efficiency. To make an informed decision on your
communication system, take a close look at the powerful StarCall
features outlined below, then turn to the inside back cover for a
selection guide to the feature set that meets your needs.
System traffic is managed over 32 global telephonic links, one to
four high power intercom channels, and one or two page/program
distribution channels. StarCall allows selection of up to 26 distinct
tone events for system use, each of which can be programmed
The rack-mount primary shelf has 14 card slots. Slot 1 is reserved
for the central processor card (CPC) and slot 2 for the audio routing
card (ARC), leaving 12 slots for line and option cards. The expansion
shelf, which does not require a CPC or ARC, has 14 slots available
for line and option cards. Both primary and expansion shelves have
space for up to two IAMs. The expansion shelf (Model 110-3547A)

Timekeeping Features
StarCall provides a 500-event, 16-schedule, and 32 multipurpose
zone master clock. This clock can function as a slave or master
time keeping device, capable of correcting both digital and analog
secondary clocks. Users can select schedules and change time or
date from any ATEL or standard phone, or use RAPID software.
The clock is capable of maintaining system time for 10 years in the
event of a power failure. It automatically adjusts for daylight savings time and leap years. All ATELs display the time when there are
no call-ins present and the unit is not in use. This display may be
configured for 12 or 24-hour mode. The day of the week and date
are also displayed.

Cards and Modules
Central Processor Card (CPC)
The CPC manages the connections between the
different types of line cards and the ARC. Data
communication between cards is managed over a
LON. Each card slot has a fixed node address that is
constructed during system configuration. This
provides “plug and play” installation of the line cards.
The CPC also has an RS-232 port to configure the system through a
local PC/laptop or remotely via LAN and IP port server. A modem
may also be used for this purpose. System configuration is accomplished by using an IBM PC or compatible PC running Windows® 98
or higher with RAPID (Remote Programming and Diagnostics) PC
programming application. The remote modem is required to be
Hayes compatible.
The CPC contains the system software, which controls all StarCall
functions and features. System software can be upgraded from a
PC, either directly or via modem, using the RMU (Remote Maintenance Utility) PC application.
• CPC-E Features
• Set system time, date, and schedule
• All administrative telephone intercom features
• Alphanumeric room numbers
• Normal call to emergency call upgrade
• Seven call-in priority levels plus privacy
• Distinctive ring tones for standard and emergency calls
• Emergency call-in to specified emergency stations
• Thirty-two multipurpose zones
• Thirty-two call destination groups
• Remote zone page microphone
• User-selective call answer from ATEL
• RDU350 tone enable
• Programmable hookswitch flash

Administrative Telephone Card (ATC)
The administrative telephone card manages data and
audio for the ATELs. Field wiring is terminated at the
administrative telephones through a customerprovided distribution punch block. Each ATC includes a
12-foot (3.7 m) pigtail cable with connector. The
connector plugs into the receptacle on the ATC. Power (+24Vdc) for
the ATELs is bussed separately, not within the pigtail cables. Each
ATEL requires two shielded 22AWG pairs for data and an 18AWG
pair for power. DC power for the ATEL is brought to the punchblock
by a separate pair of customer-provided wires. Each shelf power
supply can support up to eight ATELs. Every additional group of 24
ATELs requires an additional power supply (Model 17A365). The use
of one or more remote display units (RDUs) reduces this capacity. An
RDU uses approximately twice the power of an ATEL. ATEL-initiated
voice paging can be distributed via All-Call or any combination of 32
possible multipurpose zones.

Standard Telephone Card (STC)
Audio Switching Card (ASC)
Standard Telephone Card field wiring for is terminated
at the telephones through customer-provided distribution punch blocks. Each STC includes a 12-foot (3.7 m)
pigtail cable with a connector that plugs into the
receptacle on the STC. Standard telephone-initiated
voice paging can be distributed via all call or any combination of 32
possible multipurpose zones.

Balanced Telephone Card (BTC-P)
The balanced telephone card provides the same
functionality as the STC, but provides superior noise
rejection due to the balanced nature of the signal pair.
The card also provides protection from excessive
communication line voltage. Each BTC includes a 12foot (3.7 m) pigtail cable with a connector that plugs into the
receptacle on the BTC. BTC telephone wiring requires only twisted
pairs.

Trunk Interface Card (TIC)
The trunk interface card (TIC) provides StarCall with
trunk ports for connection to loop start central office
trunks or to KSU/PBX extension ports. The field
wiring is terminated at the TIC via RJ-11 telephone
jacks mounted on the card edge.

For optimum audio performance with minimum crosstalk between
stations, it is recommended that the audio pair from the ASC to the
speaker be shielded, 22AWG twisted pair. Field wiring connects to
an ASC with a 12-foot (3.7 m) pigtail-to-connector cable assembly.
Each call switch can be assigned one of seven priority levels and
up to 32 call-in destination groups. There are three priority levels
for emergency calls and three for normal calls. The seventh priority
allows remote call cancel. A normal call-in may be upgraded to
an emergency call by rapidly pressing the call button twice. Each
speaker station can be a member of up to 32 multipurpose zones
through system configuration programming. There is also a permanent global page/program distribution room speaker exclusion
table. This table allows the exclusion of certain speaker stations
from all call, page, time signal, and program distribution.
A speaker station may be temporarily excluded from all paging,
timed events, and program distribution by telephone command for
up to 24 hours. Emergency pages cannot be excluded. Exclusion
can be canceled manually using the telephone, or will be automatically canceled by the system on the change of day.
