About Intercom Technology
An intercom (intercommunication system) is a standalone, closed-circuit system for
one-way “simplex” and/or two-way “duplex” communication. The general purpose of a
professional intercom system is to facilitate simple to complex communication setups
for a few to thousands of users who need to be continuously on talk and/or listen
mode. Two-way communication systems can operate in half-duplex or full-duplex. With
half-duplex systems, one party talks while the other party listens. With full-duplex
systems, both parties can talk and listen at the same time as if they are in a natural
conversation in person.
Users, who have different roles in a particular operation, can be in a conference or
partyline together. Or they can be sub-divided into a matrix of independent groups in
any one or many private intercom channels. In addition to establishing communication
points, intercom can also interface with third-party devices such as 2-way radios,
4-wire audios, telephone, TV cameras, AES3 digital audio, relay control (for signal
light activation or door control), etc. Coordinating activities via voice or through
third-party devices such as relay controls require low-latency (delays measured
in milliseconds).
The core technology of an intercom system could be based on one of the following
platforms: 2-wire/analog, 4-wire/digital, wireless, and IP networks. The decision
to deploy one platform over the other will greatly depend on requirements,
environment and budget. These intercom platforms operate independently or
can be integrated to form a larger system in order to address specific unique
communication workflow needs. Moreover, intercom systems can be bridged
together with different communication systems as part of a multi-platform solution.
In certain applications, intercom systems need to be geographically distributed to
support the various communication positions in a given workflow. Therefore, they
can be connected over 2-wire or 4-wire; MADI for close-distance connections such
as floor-to-floor; optical fiber for short to long distances within a building; E1/T1 for
inner-city connections; and IP networks (LAN, WAN, or Internet) for connections
across a wide area, across town, and across the country.

Interface Frames
Rack-mountable interface frames offer a scalable way to hold interface modules and directly
connect external audio sources to the Eclipse HX systems.
IMF-3 interface frame holds up to 11 interface modules in a
3RU chassis. Modular rear-mounted connector units feature
two RJ-45 connectors to the matrix ports and two DB-9s
attaching the connected devices. The frame is used in
conjunction with the PSU-101 rack-mountable dual power
supply, providing power to the enclosed interfaces.
IMF-102 interface frame combines an internal power supply,
connection for a second redundant supply, a rear input/output
connector panel and slots for two modular interfaces – all in a
1RU chassis. The compact frame offers a practical way to add
two interfaces to an Eclipse HX-Omega, -Median, -Delta or
-PiCo Matrix frame. A PSU-101 can be added for power
supply redundancy.
PSU-101 is the power supply for the IMF-3 interface frame.
It has both an audible failure alarm and failure relay contacts
to activate a remote signal. A single PSU-101 will power a
minimum of two interface frames depending on the type of
interfaces and their individual power requirements.
Standalone Interfaces
IFB-104 (Matrix IFB interface) provides an easy way to
connect Matrix systems to 4 on-air Talent channels using IFB
(Interruptible FoldBack). The IFB-104 interface receives
program audio from either an Audio Console or intercom
Matrix and intercom from up to four ports on the Matrix
intercom frame and sends IFB outputs to the on-air talents.
Both the audio inputs and outputs are transformer isolated.
A single program input can feed all 4 IFB outputs. DC power
is only necessary if the talent receivers connected to the IFB
ports require it.
BAL-8 (8-way Transformer Balance unit) is a 1RU interface
containing eight transformer isolated ports. The unit isolates
the connection between matrix ports and peripheral devices
such as two-way radios and 4-wires. (All Eclipse HX matrix
direct outputs are low impedance and electronically balanced.)
TW-60 interface supports “Radio Interoperability” and interfaces
with up to four Land Mobile Radios. The interface can connect
to earphone, microphone and push-to-talk radio controls. An
audio output delay, to allow key-up time of a radio system on
the outbound side of each connection, is also included with
delay between 0 and 5000ms. Receive level, Transmit level
and Delay time are three separate controls for each radio.

Interface Modules
Connections with third-party devices or panels are enabled in Eclipse HX using a variety
of interface modules.
CCI-22 (Dual Partyline Ring Interface
Module) connects two 2-wire full-duplex partyline circuits with the matrix.
The interface supports Clear-Com signaling to and from the matrix system,
deriving its power from the external
partyline circuit. Levels and cable
nulling are completely adjustable. The
CCI-22 works with Clear-Com and
other third-party 2-wire intercom
systems. The CCI-22 can also connect
to V-Series panels for remote operation
over IP networks.
FOR-22 (Dual 4-wire Transformer
Balance and Radio Relay Control
Module) connects two external 4-wire
circuits to the matrix. The module
provides proper impedance matching,
transformer isolation and level
adjustments between systems. It also
supports external relay activation and
call-sense circuitry. The FOR-22 can
also connect to V-Series panels for
remote operation over IP networks.
AES-6-CX and AES-6-RJ
The six-channel AES-6-CX module
connects V-Series panels to Eclipse
HX matrices over AES3 digital audio
pairs (RJ) or Co-Ax (CX), providing
two audio paths to the intercom panel.
Alternately, these modules can be used
to connect Eclipse HX to third party
equipment, with AES interface ports.
TEL-14 (Dual Telephone Interface
Module) The two-line, auto-nulling
digital hybrid telephone interface
module is designed for establishing
IFB connections between the main
intercom and remote production
trucks, and enabling telephone calls
directly from any intercom panel in
an Eclipse HX matrix.
RLY-6 (6-way Relay Control Module)
provides six fully programmable SPDT
(Single Pole, Double Throw) relay
outputs to support dedicated switching functions external to the matrix
system. This provides external DC
signal light activation or door control,
for example.
GPI-6 (6-way General Purpose Input
Control Module) provides six general
purpose Opto logic inputs into the
matrix, allowing external sources to
trigger routing changes and other
events through the matrix system.

Logic Maestro
In the everyday running of a communications system between many
users working on a single or multiple
projects, there is often the need to link
the intercom to other systems, like
signal lights or door control, or change
the routing depending on external
states such as microphones being live.
Such conditional interfacing has been
programmed in software using Control
Macros scripts within the Eclipse HX
Configuration Software (EHX) system
until now.
