* One or dual-master configuration.
- TB-AD1 adaptor connects TC-M with an IE/IF Series audio door station (up to 3).
«For 4 to max. 10 doors, use a TB-AD10 adaptor. Or alternatively, TB-ADM10 adaptor
for max. 10 PanTilt door stations. Allows TC-M to communicate and monitor each MY
door station audio-visually either selectively or all in succession. Refer to the TB-
ADM10 Manual.

notified of a call with a lit LED only. The audible call tone will
resume when the handset is hung up.
Do not press more than one buttons,
when calling.
Receiving a call from audio IE/IF door station
When the door station places a call with call button, a tremolo tone
is activated on the TC-M, which stays on approx. 40 seconds. The
master replies by selecting the station button that is lit. At the door
station, when selected, a pretone is heard, unless it is muted at the
TB-AD1, 10 adaptor.

“Transfer” allows two TB-SE subs to communicate with each other
When a master receives a call from sub A, requesting transfer of
call, TC-M leaves sub A waiting, pressing a sub B select button.
When sub B picks up the call (sub A hears a busy tone), TC-M
depresses Transfer switch.
TC-M then reselects waiting sub A with red LED on. Three parties
are on the line, and TC-M may hang up.
% Door-to-master or master-to-master calls are not transferrable.
* If transfer LED is lit when a transfer is not being made, it can be
cleared by pressing “transfer” switch.

x The power switch is located on back panel of TC-M console, which should be placed ON, except for
special occasions. If the system malfunctions, turn off and on TC-M master, by which the system
may reset itself. Possible causes are; power supply is unplugged, connecting wires are loosened or
shorted. Do not attempt to open TC-M equipment nor change wiring. Ask qualified personnel.
x At end of each communication, be sure to place handset in cradle properly. If not, TC-M master or
TB-SE sub will not hear the call tone.
* The TC-M is rated to operate at temperatures between 0°C ~ +40°C (32°F ~ 104°F).
Xx Clean the TC-M equipment with a soft cloth dampened with neutral household cleanser. Never use
