tones/speech messages for many applications. The following is a sample of the included and optional
features:
•
AMI Configuration Tool Software,
complete with:
- Pre-recorded alarm tones
- Pre-recorded speech messages
• 8 inputs/outputs plus expansion option
• Real-time clock
• Capability to route audio to 8
individually controlled zones
•
•
•
•
•

Secure telephone access
Day/Night modes
Integration to ADVANCE systems
The Audio Messenger Interface Configuration Tool (ACT) software is used to define and change
configurations for the Audio Messenger Interface (AMI), and is included with all models of AMI. To
retrieve configurations and play audio messages, the AMI accesses a CompactFlash® card. Each AMI is
shipped with a CompactFlash® card pre-programmed with the AMI Factory Default configuration.
Using the ACT software, custom configurations are created. After a custom configuration is created, it
must be saved to the local hard drive (typically in the <drive>:\Program Files\AMI Configuration
Tool\AMI Configs folder). After the configuration is saved to the hard drive, it must be moved or copied
to the CompactFlash® card using Windows Explorer.
NOTE: Custom configurations cannot be saved directly to a CompactFlash® card.

The ACT tool includes pre-recorded tones suitable for almost any application. The tones include typical
emergency tones (i.e., a siren, slow whoop, etc.) and signaling or process tones (i.e., a gong, steady tone,
etc.). All of the tones and speech messages broadcast by the AMI are stored in MP3 file format. For
applications where a needed tone is not supplied, any tone recorded or stored in an MP3 file format can be
used with the AMI. Using the ACT software, any MP3 audio file can be configured for use with the
AMI.
Additionally, because all audio is in MP3 format, custom speech messages can be recorded and
configured for use with the AMI. Using commercially available audio editing software, custom
fragments can be recorded onto the PC and stored in MP3 format. For example, to play a speech message
and alarm tone simultaneously, the speech can be recorded on the right channel and the tone on the left
channel. When broadcast by the AMI, the result will be a speech-over-tone message.
The ACT software must be installed on a Windows PC (Windows 98 SE/XP/2000) equipped with a USB
port. A reader/writer capable of programming CompactFlash® memory cards must be connected to the
USB port. The CompactFlash® reader/writer is not included with the AMI.
The AMI includes eight configurable inputs and outputs. Typically, the inputs are configured to activate
alarm/process tones and/or pre-recorded speech messages, mute audio playback, and reset alarms. The
outputs are typically used to activate remote alarm systems, interface to automated processes, interface to
paging system equipment, etc.
If the standard eight inputs are not sufficient for an application, the AMI can support the addition of one
Model 12584-001 I/O Control Module. The I/O control module includes 32 inputs and 32 digital outputs
expanding the total I/O to 40 each.
The “Real-Time Clock” provides the AMI the capability to broadcast any recorded audio, activate any
output, etc., based on the time of day. With the ACT software, scheduled events can be set up to occur at
any interval (hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, etc.).
To provide the system with the capability of broadcasting live speech messages, the AMI includes a
connection for an external push-to-talk (PTT) microphone. The microphone input can be configured to
have any level of priority. For example, the live speech pages can be configured to perform emergency
pages by assigning the microphone input to the highest priority level of “0” (zero).
The AMI has a 33-ohm page interface that can connect to the page line of a Page/Party® system for live or
recorded paging.
AMIs equipped with the optional 69501-xxx Telephone Interface provide the ability to perform live
speech pages from a telephone. For this feature to function, the AMI must be connected to either an
analog station port of a PBX type telephone system or directly to a Central Office telephone line on the
public switched telephone network (PSTN). See the Specifications Section for telephone line
requirements.
With telephone paging, acoustical feedback, or howling, is a common problem. To prevent feedback, the
AMI includes a built-in feedback eliminator. If the system is configured to use the feedback eliminator,
incoming telephone pages are recorded and stored until the telephone connection is terminated. After the
telephone connection is terminated, the AMI will broadcast the page. The delay between the recording
and the playback of the page eliminates any possibility of feedback.

The telephone interface has multiple operational modes. The appropriate mode is configurable by the
AMI Configuration Tool software application. Not all modes are available to all models of AMI.
Page/Party®, Mixed, and Manual/Disable modes are available for rack-mount AMI units equipped with
the Model 10960 Series option that included the 33-ohm Page/Party® Interface card. The modes of
operation are as follows:
Page/Party® - Delivers a live voice page (not pre-recorded) to the page line output. The party line is held
open following the page. (Available with the Model 10960 Series option that includes the 33-ohm
Page/Party® Interface Card.)
Record Page - Records a page, and delivers it to the page line output.
Mixed Mode - Records a page, delivers it to the page line output, and holds the party line open following
the page. (Available with the Model 10960 series option that includes the 33-ohm Page/Party® Interface
Card.)
Live Page Mode - Delivers a live voice page (not pre-recorded) to the page line output. The party line is
not open following the page.
Ring Mode – Does not deliver a page, but instead plays a configured message on the page line to signal
the incoming call.
Manual/Disabled – The telephone interface does not automatically answer a phone call. However, an
input can be configured for “Manual Access” to allow an attendant to manually answer the phone, and
transfer calls to a party line. (Available with the Model 10960 Series option that includes the 33-ohm
Page/Party® Interface Card.)
The AMI can provide secure telephone access to the system. Using the ACT software, the AMI can be
configured to allow telephone access only if the correct Remote Access Security Code is entered. The
remote access code is used to prevent unwanted callers from directly accessing the system. If the system
is configured to use a security code, callers are required to enter the correct code to gain access to the
system. Day and Night modes can have different security codes.
The AMI can support two modes of operation: Day and Night Mode. The day and night modes can be
configured independently of each other. See the ACT on-line help for more details regarding configuring
day and night modes.
As an example of the Day and Night modes, day mode may be configured to allow callers the ability of
paging and subsequent party line communications. The night mode may be configured to play a tone over
the paging system alerting personnel of an incoming call. In this mode, the call can be answered at any
Page/Party® station.
With an AMI that includes both a telephone interface and a Model 10960 Series option with the amplifier
steering module, a telephone caller can direct a page to a specific zone or zones. Please see the Remote
Commands section of this manual for more details.
Additionally, if a Model 10960 Series option that includes the 33-ohm Page/Party® Interface card is
included with the AMI, the AMI can be configured to allow a telephone caller to direct the telephone call
to a specific party. Please see the Remote Commands section of this manual for more details.
The 33-ohm Page/Party® Interface provides Page/Party® and ADVANCE users the capability of
activating the AMI, and automatically dialing a predetermined telephone number from a Page/Party® or
SmartSeries station. When configured via the ACT tool, the AMI recognizes when a station goes offhook on the designated party line, and automatically dials the preprogrammed telephone number. The
number and party line remain static and cannot be selected by the operator. When the station goes onhook, the call is terminated. Sample applications may include dedicated calls for plant entry, to a security
desk, or to plant emergency response.

When the AMI is interfaced to an ADVANCE system, the operation of the telephone interface is as
described above, and includes all page modes. The selection of a party line is hardwired in the
ADVANCE system, and cannot be changed by the caller or the AMI configuration.
Scheduled events and live pages can be played through the ADVANCE system to a specified zone group.
Zone groups are configured using the ACT tool. Configured zone groups can be assigned to individual
events, messages, or the AMI auxiliary microphone jack.
The optional 10960-xxx Zone Interface Modules provide the capability for the AMI to route audio to
eight individually controlled zones. Each zone provides a 0 dBm/600-ohm output. Zones may be
assigned to zone groups via the ACT tool. A maximum of 60 zone groups may be created. Each zone
group has a unique description, and can consist of any combination of output zones. The ACT tool
provides configuration of zone groups, which can then be assigned to various events and messages. Via
the remote control function, the caller has the option of choosing the zone group destination prior to
making a page. (Refer to the Remote Commands section of this manual).

TB1 - Digital Output Connections
The TB1 connector (labeled DIGITAL OUTPUTS) provides eight digital (common ground) output
connections designed to drive externally-mounted relays or other indicating circuits. Each output can
sink up to 100 mA of the current. External circuitry (relays, indicators, etc.) must be powered from an
external power supply of the same voltage used to power the AMI (12 to 24 V dc). The ground (or dc
common) terminals of the external power supply must be tied to TB1-1 and/or TB1-10. Refer to Table 2,
TB1 terminal block assignment chart, and Figure 2 below.
If the application includes the Model 12584-001 I/O Control Module, please refer to Pub. 42004-359 for

TB2 - Digital Input Connections
The TB2 connector (labeled DIGITAL INPUTS) provides connection for eight contact closure inputs for
activation AMI alarms or events. Switches or relay contact closures are used to activate the AMI inputs.
The input contacts may be any combination of momentary (pulsed) switches and maintained (latched)
switches. They can be either N.O. or N.C. dry contacts rated at 5 mA or better. Inputs 1 through 8 are
programmed using the AMI Configuration Tool software.
If the application includes the Model 12584-001 I/O Control Module, please refer to Pub. 42004-359 for
installation, connection and specification details.
NOTE: For the inputs to operate reliably, the cable loop resistance connecting the relay/switch contact
closures cannot exceed 200 ohms. For example, using No. 24 AWG cable, the maximum cable length for
connection of the relay/switch contact closures cannot exceed 1,500 feet. Refer to Table 3, TB2 terminal
block assignment chart, and Figure 3 below.

TB3 - Audio Output and Data Connections
The TB3 connector (labeled AUDIO) provides connections for audio inputs and outputs, and for local
RS485 data connections. Data connections are used when the AMI alarms are being controlled remotely
from a CPU, when operating as part of a GAI-Tronics ADVANCE system, or when the Model 12584-001
I/O Control Module is used to expand the inputs and outputs to 40 each. A 600-ohm balanced audio
output is provided to drive a power amplifier. Refer to Table 4, TB3 terminal block assignment chart, and
Figure 4 below.
NOTE: If only 600-ohm audio will be used, ensure that jumper P7 is installed in position 1-2 to properly
terminate the 33-ohm output. Refer to Table 8, 69517-201 PCBA Jumper Functions, on page 13.

TB4 - Reboot and Fault Output
Reboot
The reboot terminals (TB4-5 and TB4-6) override and abort any activity in progress. To control the
reboot function, a user-supplied, remote, momentary, normally open (N.O.) switch contact closure must
be connected between TB4-5 and TB4-6 (or other GND return). Refer to the TB4 terminal block
assignment chart and Figure 5 below.
Fault Output
If the AMI processor is operating, the fault output is on (TB4-4 active low) and can be used to energize
external relays or indicating devices. If a fault is detected that prevents the AMI processor from
functioning, or if the CompactFlash® card is removed, or if communication is lost with one of the
auxiliary boards, the output is turned off (pulled high). Refer to Figure 6 and Table 5, TB4 (SYSTEM)
terminal block assignments below, which provide the following external control functions:
NOTE: For the inputs to operate reliably, the cable loop resistance connecting any relay/switch contact
closures cannot exceed 200 ohms. For example, using No. 24 AWG cable, the maximum cable length for

Working with CompactFlash®
CompactFlash® Memory Card Installation
The CompactFlash® memory card stores the system configuration, speech messages, and alarm tones.
When the memory card is being installed, complete the following instructions:
Insert the memory card through the rectangular MEMORY CARD slot on the front panel. Ensure the
label on the memory card faces up and slide the memory card in until it is fully seated in the slot. When
seated properly, the card protrudes approximately ¼ inch.
NOTE: The memory card and its socket are keyed for proper insertion – do not force the card into the
socket.
Follow the instructions on page 20 to reboot the system so the memory card will be read by the AMI unit.
Saving Configurations to a CompactFlash®Card
Custom configurations are created using the ACT software. After a custom configuration is created, it
must be saved to the local hard drive (typically in the “C:\Program Files\AMI Configuration Tool\AMI
Configs” folder). After the configuration is saved to the hard drive, it must be moved or copied to the
CompactFlash® card using Windows Explorer.
NOTE: Custom configurations cannot be saved directly to a CompactFlash® card.
CompactFlash®Card Formatting
All new CompactFlash® memory cards must be formatted specifically for use with the AMI. Formatting
is accomplished using the following DOS-format command from the Windows command prompt:
Format <drive>: /a:16K
where <drive> is the drive letter of the PC’s CompactFlash® reader/writer.
NOTE: Successful formatting of the CompactFlash® card can be performed only on Windows 2000 and
Windows XP workstations.

Overview of the AMI Configuration Tool (ACT)
When programmed, the CompactFlash® memory card provides the custom configuration for the AMI.
The CompactFlash® card is programmed using the AMI Configuration Tool software application
provided with the unit. The application must be installed on a Windows PC (Windows 98/XP/2000)
equipped with a USB-connected reader/writer capable of programming CompactFlash® memory cards.
Please refer to the online help for specific instructions. Some of the configurable parameters are:
1. Fragments: All tones and voice messages are digitally recorded and stored on the CompactFlash®
card as MP3 files.
2. Messages: Each message is a collection of fragments. The content of each message must be defined
by selecting the fragment(s) to be incorporated into the message. Other message parameters include:
• Message title
• Priority
• Volume
• Play mode and repeat interval
3. Inputs: Each input circuit must be enabled or disabled. If enabled, it must be programmed with
several parameters such as:
• Title containing a brief text description of the input and its use
• The type of switch contact being used to activate the input (normally open, closed)
• The action of the switch (maintained, momentary, toggle on/off)
• Function of the input (activate a message, reboot, mute, etc.)
4. Output: Each output circuit must be enabled or disabled. If enabled, it must be programmed with
several parameters such as:
• Title, which contains a brief text description of the output and its use
• Mode of operation when active (maintained, flash, momentary, flicker)
• Activation assignment from an input or scheduled event
5. Telephone Interface: If using the telephone interface, several parameters must be set:
• The number of rings before answer
• Paging mode (live or recorded)
• Page delay, if recorded
• Maximum page duration
• Selection of a greeting message to be played to the caller
• Selection of a pre-announcement tone to be played to the PA system
6. Event Scheduling: Using the event-scheduling feature, messages can be set up to automatically play
at certain dates and times. When scheduling events several parameters must be set:
• Start and stop times
• Start and stop dates
• Event duration and intervals
7. Zone Groups: Zone groups are configured with a unique description, and assigned any combination of
the eight available output zones.

Remote Commands
After a call has been connected to the AMI, the caller can enter a valid remote command using the DTMF
keypad of the telephone. During the greeting message, the caller must enter a DTMF “*” to access
remote control. The greeting message will be halted, and two consecutive beeps will sound, indicating
the unit has entered remote control mode.
After entering remote control mode, callers can direct a page to a specific zone group by entering a
DTMF “#”, followed by the two-digit zone group number. Valid zone group numbers are 01–60.
Entering #00 will select the all call feature.
Additional remote commands are available for rack-mount AMI units equipped with the 10960 series
option that includes the 33-ohm Page/Party® Interface Card option. Callers can select the party line,
which will be connected for a subsequent telephone conversation. After entering remote control mode,
the caller enters a DTMF “*”, followed by the single-digit party line (1 through 5). The AMI will
continue with live page or recorded paging, depending upon the configured page mode. The caller will
then be connected to the selected party line when the page is answered.
The Off-hook Timeout setting for the Telephone Interface in the ACT tool limits the duration of a party
conversation. Approximately 20 seconds prior to the configured timeout expiration, the AMI will emit a
warning tone, indicating that the connected call is about to be terminated. If the caller enters the DTMF
“*” key, the AMI will extend the conversation by the length of time defined by the Off-hook Timeout
parameter. Two consecutive beeps are sounded when the AMI timeout has been successfully extended.
While a caller is waiting for the paged party to respond, entering the DMTF “#” causes the AMI to restart
paging. Callers can either reissue a page for the original party, or make a page for another party.
NOTE: The caller does not access remote control mode to extend the connected party conversation or to
issue a repage.
Maintenance
If your AMI Interface requires service, contact your GAI-Tronics Regional Service Center for a return
authorization number (RA#). Equipment should be shipped prepaid to GAI-Tronics with a return

specified and agreed upon, and (b) Buyer’s claim is made within the warranty period set forth above,
