USA and Canada Consult the National Electrical Code (NFPA 70), Canadian Standards Association
(CSA 22.1), and local codes for specific requirements regarding your installation. Class 2 circuit wiring
must be performed in accordance with NEC 725.55.
WARNING
In 24 V dc systems: Under NO condition should this equipment be operated
from a battery charger without the batteries connected.
In 24 V dc systems, most chargers have an unloaded output of 35 to 45 volts that can quickly damage the
equipment designed for nominal 24 volts. The maximum battery voltage should never exceed the
maximum specified input voltage.
Mounting the Enclosure
Mount the enclosure using the four 0.312inch (8 mm) diameter holes located on the
mounting flanges with ¼-inch (M6)
hardware. The ICS Page/Party® Station is
not supplied with conduit or cable openings.
Remove the front panel and drill or punch
entry openings in the rear section of the
enclosure. Refer to Figure 2 for the
suggested locations. There must be a
minimum of ½ inch (13 mm) of material
between entry holes.
The station is suitable for top or bottom
entry per Figure 2. However, GAI-Tronics
recommends bottom entry only wherever
possible.
The standard orientation (shown in Figure 2)
locates the power supply housing in the
upper left corner. The orientation of the
enclosure can be rotated 180º to allow clear
access to the top. The Termination PCBA
can then be rotated for correct orientation.
For specific details including mounting hole
dimensions, refer to Figure 2. When
mounting the enclosure, use caution to avoid
damaging the internal components.
The suggested mounting height for all
station enclosures is 48 inches (1219 mm) to
the center of the bottom mounting holes of
the enclosure.
NOTE: In ICS Page/Party® stations with an
installed 70V/100V speaker output option,
bottom wire entry is limited on the bottom
left side of the enclosure. Refer to Figure 2.

Field Wiring
The ICS Page/Party® Station provides terminal blocks for field wiring. Each connection for the system
cable has two terminals for daisy-chain wiring. Attach #6 spade lugs to the wires before attachment to the
terminal blocks for the most secure connection. Torque the terminal block screws to 8 to 10 lbf⋅in (0.90
to 1.13 N⋅m) when attaching the spade lugs.
The terminal blocks on the Termination PCBA are labeled to coincide with the color code used on GAITronics 60029 series multi-party cable or 60038 series single party cable. Refer to Figure 3 for a sample
wiring diagram.
In certain circumstances where paging audio induces feedback, muting the speakers of two or more
stations during a page, referred to as mutual muting, can eliminate such feedback problems. This function
is enabled by connecting the spare orange wire between stations to terminal block TB4-2 or TB5-2.
Figure 3. Typical Page/Party® ICS Station Wiring Diagram
After all wiring and cable connections have been completed, place the front cover on the rear enclosure,
being careful not to pinch any cables. Secure the front cover using the four screws and washers provided.
Torque the screws to 10 to 12 lbf⋅in (1.13 to 1.36 N⋅m).

Level Adjustments
Transmit Level
The Transmit Level potentiometer, R34, adjusts the signal level from the handset or optional auxiliary
headset microphone to the page or party lines.
Receiver Volume
The Receiver Volume potentiometer, R5, adjusts the signal level to the handset receiver from the page or
party lines. It does not adjust the signal level to the optional auxiliary headset.
Speaker Volume
The Speaker Volume potentiometer, R91, adjusts the signal level to the speaker from the page line. The
default setting is 4 watts for an 8-ohm speaker and 2 watts for a 16-ohm speaker.
Warning – Maximum output power may exceed rated speaker wattage resulting in speaker damage.
Attach the Front Panel
After all adjustments have been completed, place the front cover on the rear enclosure, being careful not
to pinch any cables. Secure the front cover using the four screws and washers provided. Torque the
screws to 10 to 12 lbfin (1.13 to 1.36 Nm).
Operation
For paging and subsequent party line conversation, the station operator lifts the handset or connects the
optional headset, selects a free party line using the five-position rotary selector switch (if equipped), and
presses the handset pressbar or headset page switch. The station operator pages the desired individual and
designates the party line on which that individual should respond. The individual then responds by
approaching the nearest ICS Page/Party® station, selecting the appropriate party line and lifting the
handset or connecting a headset. Full-duplex communication can then be held on the party line without
broadcasting over the speakers. After the conversation is complete, all parties should place the handset
back on hook or disconnect the headset.
NOTES:
1. For stations with an auxiliary jack, the Model 10401-201 Headset and 10416-103 Extension Cord
allows the user to be hands-free and mobile while maintaining communication. When connected, the
handset microphone is disabled.
2. The ICS Page/Party® station incorporates a noise-canceling microphone to reduce transmitted
ambient noise. This requires the user to place the microphone as close as possible to their mouth.

response to varying background noise
Off-hook timeout prevents noise being introduced to a party line by electronically placing the handset
“on-hook” after 8 minutes
Page timeout limits a single page broadcast to two minutes, freeing the page line for emergencies
When used with ADVANCE head-end equipment:
•
•
Station monitoring of key components (including handset, amplifier and local speaker) provides fast
notification of any faults
Ability to accept supervised contact closure inputs and provide a supervised relay output (requires

Installation and Adjustments
Opening the Station
Remove the four screws from the front panel and turn it to the right so that the interior surface faces you.
Allow the wiring and ribbon cables to remain connected. Using two of the screws just removed, mount
the front panel to the back box’s right-side mounting holes. The front panel interior surface and the back
box interior now face you. This configuration presents the easiest access for troubleshooting and setting
adjustments.
Installing the SmartSeries PCBA
Remove power from the station.
Remove all jumpers on the Main PCBA P4 connector.
Align the SmartSeries PCBA with four mounting holes to the right of the Main PCBA with the edge of
the SmartSeries board under the Main PCBA. Secure the SmartSeries PCBA with the four screws
provided.
Install the provided 34-pin ribbon cable from P4 of Main PCBA to P4 of SmartSeries PCBA.
Reapply power to the station.
Setting the Address
For the SmartSeries option to function properly, each station in an ADVANCE system zone must be
given a unique address using the hexadecimal switches, S1 (Hi Address) and S2 (Lo Address). Each
switch contains 16 settings, labeled 0–F. A small arrow on each switch indicates the setting.
The station address is determined by the high address setting followed by the low address setting. For
example, to assign an address of 05, the high station address is set to 0 and the low address is set to 5.
Valid address settings are 05 to FE. Record the address assigned for each station in the system for your
records. If the SmartSeries PCBA is installed in a system without an ADVANCE head end, set the
address to 04 (default).
ALS Minimum Level
The ALS minimum level is the lowest speaker output level that the station will maintain. To set the ALS
minimum level, turn R91 fully counterclockwise. Listen for a single beep from the speaker indicating the
speaker amplifier is in the Minimum Level Adjustment mode. If the page line is in use immediately after
the beep tone, the page signal should be used to make the minimum level adjustment. If the page line is
inactive following the beep tone, a continuous tone is activated to make the minimum level adjustment.
After the tone is activated, all page line activity is ignored until completion of the adjustment.
This test tone is used as a reference to adjust the speaker amplifier output level to the desired volume.
Adjust R91 to the desired output. The test tone automatically shuts off 5 seconds after the last
adjustment. The factory default setting for minimum level is 4.0 watts nominal into an 8-ohm load.

Page 11 of 31
ALS Offset Level
The ALS offset level allows the output of the speaker amplifier to maintain a set difference or “offset”
between the ambient noise level and the speaker output level. To set the ALS offset level, turn R91 fully
clockwise and listen for the two beep tones indicating that the station is in the Offset Adjustment mode.
If the page line is in use immediately after the two beep tones are heard, the page signal should be used to
make the offset level adjustment. If the page line is inactive immediately following the beep tones, a
continuous tone is activated to make the offset level adjustment. After the tone is activated, all page line
activity is ignored until completion of the adjustment. Adjust R91 to the desired offset level.
NOTE: This adjustment should be made under maximum ambient noise level. The ALS offset level must
always be set higher than the ALS minimum level setting.
SmartSeries VLC Level
When activated, the VLC overrides the ALS minimum level setting allowing the speaker volume to
change to a preset level during an emergency page. To adjust the VLC Level, force the station into the
VLC mode by having someone execute a page from a station programmed by the MCU to activate the
VLC function. During the page, turn the R91 control fully counterclockwise, and listen for two beep
tones through the page speaker indicating the VLC Adjustment mode has been activated. After the two
beep tones, turn the R91 control to the desired speaker level using the live paging signal to adjust the
level. The station automatically exits the VLC Adjustment mode and reverts to normal operation 5
seconds after the last pot adjustment.
NOTE: The system must be equipped with an ADVANCE head end to activate the VLC function.
Speaker Impedance Supervision
When this feature is configured, the station will supervise the speaker line for changes in the speaker line
impedance. To perform this function the station must be calibrated for the impedance of the speaker(s)
attached. If the station has never been previously calibrated, the station will report a speaker fault within
15 minutes of being configured for this feature. The station may be calibrated either “locally” at the
station or “remotely” by a system command from the ADVANCE head end. See the ADVANCE System
Programming Manual for details of “remote” calibration.
To perform a “local” calibration, first ensure that the station is configured for speaker impedance
supervision. Next, set the station’s address to 0x02. Wait until you hear a single-beep tone at the
attached speaker. This should occur within 20 seconds. This tone indicates that a successful calibration
was performed.
If instead a double-beep tone is heard, this indicates that the station attempted to calibrate but was
unsuccessful (the attached impedance is out-of-range). If a tone is not heard, the station may not be
configured for speaker impedance supervision or there is an open connection to the speaker.
After hearing the single beep tone, set the address back to its original value to resume normal station
operation with the new calibration value.
NOTE: If this feature is used, then jumper P9 of the Main PCBA must be in the HI (default) position.

FSK Signal Gain
The FSK Signal Gain, R13, adjusts the FSK transmit signal strength. It is set at the factory and should
not be adjusted by the installer.
Attaching the Front Panel
After all adjustments have been completed, place the front cover on the rear enclosure, being careful not
to pinch any cables. Secure the front cover using the four screws and washers provided. Torque the
screws to 10 to 12 lbfin (1.13 to 1.36 Nm).
Operation
Paging with ADVANCE Head End
Paging and party line operation with the ICS SmartSeries option is similar to standard station operation.
The main differences are that when the handset pressbar or the headset page switch is pressed, a steady
“wait” tone will be heard in the handset/headset earpiece. When the “wait” tone ends, a preannouncement tone, if programmed, will sound, and the operator may place their page. If the system is
busy and the page is denied, the user will hear a busy tone in the handset/headset earpiece.
Paging without ADVANCE Head End
Paging and party line operation will be similar to standard station operation.
Station Time-out Features
The ICS SmartSeries option supports a page duration limit that sets the maximum duration of each page.
If the page is still active when the page duration limit is reached, the page will be terminated. When used
without an ADVANCE head end, the page duration limit is fixed at 2 minutes.
The ICS SmartSeries option supports an off-hook limit that sets the maximum duration that the station
may be kept off hook. If the off-hook limit is reached, the station will be placed electrically on hook. To
reset the timeout condition, the handset must be physically placed on hook momentarily. When used
without an ADVANCE head end, the off-hook limit is fixed at 8 minutes.

All Call Paging Utilizing a Merge/Isolate Cabinet
Merge/Isolate (M/I) cabinets contain switching relays that are energized by a control signal from
Page/Party® stations. When energized, the relays merge (connect together) the page lines of multiple
Page/Party® systems. This allows voice pages to be broadcast from all the systems connected to the M/I
cabinet. ICS handset stations with the All Call feature contain a push-button switch on the front panel for
activating an M/I cabinet. Refer to Figure 8.
SmartSeries Dual Page All Call Utilizing ADVANCE Head End
For stations with a Dual Page All Call option, a monitored dual page zone can be utilized for the All Call
push button. This Dual Page All Call option must be software configured in the Central Control cabinet
of a GAI-Tronics ADVANCE system. Refer to Figure 8.

VLC
General
The 69553 Volume Level Control (VLC) PCBA adds the capability of remotely controlling the local
speaker volume level. When VLC is activated, a remote device transmits a 50 kHz signal over the page
line. The station detects the 50 kHz signal and switches to an alternate speaker volume setting.
VLC and SmartSeries options cannot be used in the same station.
Features
•
Provides an “alternate” speaker volume setting that is activated by receiving a 50 kHz signal on the
page line.
•
Allows office or crew quarters speakers to be muted until a high priority message or alarm is
broadcast.
•
Prevents local handset paging during emergency situations.
•
Enables outdoor speaker volume to be reduced at night.
•
Adds the ability to provide a relay output (requires RTU option)
