SM40 Distribution and

Surveillance Systems

Microprocessor control allows a wide variety of routing and switching operations to be executed quickly, efficiently and reliably

Monitors the status of PA system amplifiers, loudspeakers and cabling

Microprocessor control allows specific functions to be easily and speedily programmed by non-technical personnel

Rack-mounted Euro Card circuit boards make system expansion and alteration easy and economical

Basic System is self-contained in a 19 inch rack frame, fully wired, tested and ready for use

The SM40 Distribution System is developed to meet the demand for a comprehensive, yet simple to operate, sound distribution system. In such large public address distribution systems, which often play a role in alarm and evacuation installations, it is vital that the correct functioning of the various amplifiers and loudspeakers can be verified. Therefore, the

SM40 Surveillance System is designed to monitor the status of the amplifiers, loudspeakers and cables. Since it pinpoints any failures in the system, it saves a great deal of time, minimising the repair costs and ensuring that the system is fully functional at the earliest possible moment.

Being controlled by microprocessors, the systems are particulary flexible: all routing, switching and priority functions, and surveillance requirements can easily be programmed and changed by non-technical personnel. The Basic System is the heart of each system and is a fully working, selfcontained unit in its own right. If supplemented with a variety of circuit cards, a wide range of system configurations is possible and many different application needs are successfully met.

Distribution System

The Distribution Basic System is fed by professional microphones mounted on Call

Stations as well as auxiliary music sources.

Each Call Station contains up to 10 User

Keys, which can be programmed to route the microphone calls, digitally stored messages, attention tones or alarm signals to one or several power amplifiers. These amplifiers in turn, feed the loudspeakers located in the geographical and/or functional zones where people must be reached with background music, announcements or alarm signals.

Surveillance System

The Surveillance System is able to scan the presence of the pilot tone signal in monitoring devices, located at strategic places (at amplifier outputs, loudspeaker cabling junction boxes, inside loudspeaker enclosures) throughout a large distribution system. At detection of a malfunction, an error message is automatically generated, giving the precise time and location of the fault. It can also receive ‘internal error’ information from the system itself.

A maximum configuration of the

Surveillance System is able to sequentially scan 32 test lines, connecting up to 4,096 monitoring devices; receive error input from 11 external sources; and activate

32 relay sets.

INTRODUCTION

The SM40 basic unit is a self-contained, fully operational system into which all other SM40 circuit cards can be fitted. It can comprise up to 10 circuit cards, to be mounted in a single 19” rack frame. All the inputs of the circuit cards are protected against overvoltage and short circuiting.

The unit has a self-monitoring system for internal faults.

Both systems can be combined with amplifiers from the SQ45 range to form a sophisticated Public Address system.

Each Basic System can be expanded to a comprehensive system by applying extra circuit cards. A wide range of system configurations are possible and many different needs are successfully met.

When used as a starter Distribution Basic

System, it has a large range of possibilities for sound distribution, routing and switching. Used as a starter Surveillance

Basic System, it is capable to monitor the status of loudspeakers, amplifiers and cables in large sound systems.

All Basic System internal wiring is particularly installer friendly due to the use of the ‘quick fit’ connectors. Since the Basic

System is delivered fully wired, adjusted, tested, and mounted in a 19” rack frame, ready for use, it is an ideal base for large systems.

An Extension Frame is available to accommodate all the circuit cards when the quantity of required cards in the system exceeds the amount of space offered in the basic rack frame.

All the rack frames and the amplifiers can be fitted into a 19 inch rack cabinet.

15 Call Stations when a 16x64 matrix is used.

31 Call Stations when a 32x32 matrix is used.

If music inputs and/or Signal Generator

Cards are used in the system, less stations can be connected.

The Amplifier in the Call Station has a double function. It provides the call station microphone with a 60 Ohm (balanced) line level output, enabling it to use a normal 2 core twisted screened microphone cable with a length of up to 1,000 metres.

Furthermore, it generates the User Key address code.

The volume level is controlled by a limiter and each Call Station has a volume level pre-adjustment.

The bass rolloff-filter slope may be increased to aid clarity when the caller is forced to speak close to the microphone because of high background noise.

An announcement signal normally mutes any music being fed to the called zone, but

LBB 9567/30

the facility exists to merely reduce the music volume with -10 dB while the announcement comes through at full volume.

To meet specific user requirements, special call stations can be built with separate printed circuit boards. These boards can be mounted into cabinets or desks and other suitable enclosures. The following are available for these applications:

A Keyboard is available for selecting the following User Key functions: Key Priority,

Signal Tones plus pre-recorded messages and Routing. These functions are programmed in the microprocessor and can be activated by pushing just one of the push buttons.

Key Priority Level can be set to give each key a priority of 0-9 to cope with conflict situations (e.g. two stations attempting to call the same zone simultaneously). The caller with the highest priority (9) overrides any lower priority callers and they are warned of this status by the ‘busy’ LED.

Signal tones are available to precede an announcement (attention tones).

Depending on their character, however, they may be used as alarm or test tones.

Prerecorded messages: see also chapter

5.2.5 Digital Message Card.

Routing assigns a User Key to one or more amplifiers which feed the loudspeakers in geographical or functional zones.

Interconnection Board and the

Termination Boards is also accomplished using flat cables fitted with female connectors.

The power supply and the reference signals common to all of the circuit cards, is linked via a rail system on the board. Since the system has such a wide range of configuration possibilities, cross-wiring between the circuit cards is necessary. This is easily accomplished by terminating the individual wires or flat cables with female connectors, which can be pushed onto the

To allow for certain contacts of adjacent cards to be joined together, connector blocks (2 x 8) have been added between the

10 connectors. Soldering is not to be carried out using small jumper plugs.

Operation

This card has 8 ‘make’ and 8 ‘break’ contacts which are activated by the Central

Processor Card. The function switch

‘locked’ or ‘unlocked’ determines the operation of this card.

Out

In the Distribution System the make contacts of the ‘locked’ cards are used to activate the loudspeaker volume control override relays and the break contacts to activate the ‘priority’ inputs of the SQ45 amplifiers. When an announcement or alarm is routed to a zone, the call or alarm signal will now be allowed to come through at its full level.

In this situation, each pair of the make and break relays is locked to one of the 8 outputs of the column. When a call or alarm signal is routed to that output, these relays will be automatically activated.

In the ‘unlocked’ situation, a number of extra functions become available to activate some of the relays, for system error indication, time related switching and routing, call stations busy etc.

In the Surveillance System the ‘make’ and

‘break’ contacts are used to switch on remote warning lights and buzzers or to activate a personal pager, etc. This feature is of great importance in situations where system faults must be clearly indicated and quickly investigated.

In the ‘locked’ situation, the card indicates errors on the corresponding Surveillance

Switch Card test lines, so each relay indicates an error in its ‘locked’ zone.

In the ‘unlocked’ situation the card gives a number of useful error indications such as: system error, ASB or LSB error, external error and printing error.

The Control Relay Card position in the system and the way in which it relates to the Matrix Card columns, is defined by an

‘address’ accomplished by jumper setting on the card.

Input Cards, a Call Station can be extended to accept up to 50 user keys for extended call stations or even up to 100 user keys for master call station. User Keys can also be used without the ‘call’ facility to activate alarm tones and are then called

Alarm Stations.

Each Input Card can be recognised by the

Central Processor Card via an ‘address’ accomplished by jumper setting on the card.

Presetting of the amplifier gain is possible from -10 to 0 dB.

A short circuited input will not effect the other ones.

Operation

The Central Processor Card is the heart of the Distribution System and the basic functions are as follows.

To all cards

Detection of User Keys in a Call Station.

The card senses, in combination with the information given by the Input Card, which User Key has been pressed.

Routing the signals from the Input Cards via the Matrix Cards to the loudspeakers located in geographical and/or functional zones.

User Key priority level setting. When 2

Call Stations attempt to call the same zone simultaneously, a priority selection has to be made. To cope with these conflict situations, each User Key is given a priority level of 0-9 (9 is the highest priority).

Attention Signal Tones, selected by using this card, are coupled with the User Keys.

When a key is pressed the tone will be broadcasted before an announcement or, dependent on their character, broadcasted as attention, alarm or test signal.

Switching of the loudspeaker volume control override circuits, and bypassing of the input attenuators in the SQ45 amplifiers via the Control Relay Card.

Also switching of the amplifier outputs for loudspeaker group switching, via ‘unlocked’

Control Relay Cards.

Checking of the system hardware. The processor is continuously guarding the system hardware for errors, malfunctions or disconnections. If a problem has been detected, a message will be displayed on the screen of the Display and Keyboard unit.

Real time clock functions. The date, hours and minutes are displayed on the screen of the Display and Keyboard unit. A timer facility is coupled to the clock making it possible to switch on and route signals, prerecorded messages, music, etc. at specific times of the day or week. Synchronisation of the real time clock is possible.

Programming of the microprocessor by the user has to be done via the Display and

Keyboard unit. Having entered your password, you can change the programme.

Digital Message Card control allows you to record up to 16 x 65 seconds of speech.

Additional driver stages are mounted on the card for the I

2

C bus of up to

5 Extension Frames. Therefore, all circuit cards controlled by the Central Processor

Card must be mounted in the first 6 rack frames.

The optional I/O PCB can be used to pass information from the Key Confirmation

PCB in a Master Call Station to indicate which keys are currently active. It can also be used to communicate via a standard

RS232 port with a computer.

This card enables the user to select signals from a wide variety of tones and chimes and route them to the loudspeakers zones.

The generator is controlled by a central processor and is pre-programmed with over

70 different signals, chimes, alarms and test tones. Any signal may be programmed to precede an announcement from a Call

Station or may be used on its own, depending on its character, as an alarm or warning tone. The timer on the Central

Processor Card can activate signals at specific times of the day or week.

The selection of the signal set is done by means of the jumper setting:

Set I Chime tones and alarm signals

Set II Test signals

Set III Chime tones and dedicated

German alarm signals

Signals of set II are used during installation and for service purposes.

The volume level of the alarm signals and the other signals can be pre-adjusted separately.

Operation

This card has a filter combination channel which functions as an equaliser to improve the intelligibility of spoken messages. It also has a compressor/limiter channel that evens out variations in signal level, making external inputs such as CD or cassette players ideal as background music sources.

The card may be used between music source output and Matrix Card input,

Matrix Card output and Amplifier input, in combination with an Automatic Volume

Control Card, etc.

The output of the filter channel may be fed into the input of the compressor/limiter channel and enables it to operate as one channel. Both channels are electrically balanced, but will accept unbalanced sources without any loss of sensitivity.

The filter combination channel has a bass cut and 3 parametric filters with fixed centre frequencies.

The gain of the bass cut-filter (high pass) is adjustable to a maximum of -15 dB at

100 Hz, sloping to 0 dB at 1,000 Hz.

The 3 parametric filters have centre frequencies fixed at 800, 1,600 and

3,200 kHz, but a simple modification allows these frequencies to be altered. The gain at the centre frequency of each band is adjustable to a maximum of +/- 10 dB.

The ‘Q’ factor slope (width) of each band can be adjusted to match differing irregularities in the frequency curve.

A red LED indicates the 0 dBV level at the output.

The compressor limiter channel can be adjusted for a compression ratio from 1:3 to a maximum of 1:20. If the ratio is adjusted to 1:20, the channel will act as a limiter restricting the maximum output to a preset level. The attack time of the compressor is factory set at 1 msec, but the release time is adjustable between 40 ms and 4 seconds.

The preamplifier gain is adjustable to a maximum of 20 dB.

Operation

In environments such as football stadiums and airports, the background noise level fluctuates constantly. This card maintains the volume at a constant level above the background noise. It works by continually measuring and adjusting the volume.

The sensing microphone, in position in the listening environment concerned, provides the input for the card. The circuit samples the background noise level, except during calls so therefore the system gain is not reacting on his own calls. The sampling is blocked during the actual call signal, but resumes during speech pauses. The circuit continuously varies the output volume to compensate for changes in ambient noise level.

The card is normally placed after a Matrix

Card, so that it can be used to effect two loudspeaker zones.

Each channel has preset potentiometers for the sense level (adjustment of the microphone sensitivity), the maximum boosted signal gain and the sense mute threshold level.

A red LED indicates the 0 dBV level output.

AUTOMATIC NOISE DEPENDENT AUDIO SIGNAL PROCESSING - ANDAP

Main data

Combining an Automatic Volume

Control Card and a Signal Processor

Card makes an ANDAP function possible.

Filter compressor limiter

Operation

The ANDAP function is useful wherever the system power is not sufficient to overcome environmental noise and thus ensure intelligibility. The ANDAP function boosts the high frequencies, and then compresses the dynamic range of the signal in order to project a clearly audible message without the need for extra power.

It operates as follows.

a. Sampling the ambient (background) noise (see upper graph).

b. Comparing it with the normal amplified speech signal (see upper graph). The dynamic range is shown by the upper line and lower line.

c. When the noise level increases, the AVC function increases the level of the

‘normal’ speech signal to approx 90 dB

(SPL) in the 300 to 800 Hz range (see middle graph).

d. When the noise level increases to an extreme level, the most important frequencies for speech intelligibility are masked out, especially at the lower end of the dynamic range. To overcome this problem, ANDAP produces a

‘processed’ signal which has a reduced dynamic range and a shift in the maximum available loudness (90 dB) to between 500 Hz and 2 kHz (see lower graph). This has the effect of emphasising those frequencies which are most relevant to speech intelligibility.

e. The amount of the ‘processed’ signal added to the original is determined by an integrated regulating facility.

16 cards.

Operation

This unique card allows up to 7 individual messages to be recorded and played back as desired.

The recording is digitally stored in memory chips, ensuring that the quality will not deteriorate during the time that the message is stored in memory. When the power is switched off, the messages will remain intact in the memory for up to 30 days.

The maximum recording time is

65 seconds and messages of varying durations may be recorded, as long as the sum of the durations does not exceed the maximum recording time (65 seconds).

To record a message a separate microphone or a Call Station can be connected to the microphone input (5 pole, 180° DIN socket), which also provides the possibility of phantom powering.

Since the record and monitor functions of the card are independent of the microprocessor in the system, the card may be taken out and transported to a remote location. With the aid of a suitable power supply and some extra switches, the card may be used to record the messages in a more suitable or convenient environment.

To play back the message(s) either alone or preceding a call, the system can be programmed so that play back will be activated by a Call Station or a User Key.

A headphone socket allows the recorded messages to be checked both during and after recording.

The limiter in the automatic gain control circuit ensures that the message is recorded at a fairly constant level. The output volume level is adjustable to the same values of those of the other system sources

(attention signals, music sources, etc.).

Each card can be recognised by the Central

Processor Card via an ‘address’ accomplished by jumper setting on the card.

Operations

The Surveillance System uses an ultrasonic

20 kHz pilot tone signal which is produced by this card. The tone signal is inserted at the specially developed test input on the

Philips rack mounted amplifiers (e.g.

SQ45) and then broadcasted to all the loudspeakers in the corresponding zones.

The Surveillance System checks for the presence of this tone signal at various strategic points in the zone.

One single oscillator is used on every card to drive 16 electrically balanced outputs.

One card can feed therefore 16 amplifiers/loudspeaker zones with pilot tone signals.

The card is not connected to any other card in the system. Only the required +15V and -15V will be supplied by the system.

To reduce power dissipation in amplifiers this card can operate with two possibilites:

- Continuous pilot-tone

- Burst pilot-tone (35 ms On, 260 ms Off)

These possibilities can be selected by a jumper located on the card. In addition the appropriate pilot-tone detection cards LBB

1367 and LBB 1368 are made suitable for this feature.

This board monitors the continuity of the loudspeaker voice coil, the transformer, and the wiring to the amplifier by checking the presence of the 20 kHz pilot tone signal. It can easily be mounted inside a loudspeaker cabinet.

The board is wired in series between the secondary side of the loudspeaker transformer and the voice coil of the loudspeaker. In this position it is able to sense any dramatic changes in the current drawn by the loudspeaker at 20 kHz.

When a fault occurs, the Central Processor

Card detects this fault via the test line of the Surveillance Switch Card and an error message is sent to the system’s display or printer.

In a 100 V line system a wide range of variations are possible at the amplifier and the loudspeaker transformer output.

Therefore on each board a test switch, a

LED indicator and a potentiometer are provided to make local adjustment easy.

Each board has an ‘address’ which is obtained by setting the DIP-switches on the board and which allows the board for communication with the Central Processor

Card.

A single standard 2 core 0.75 mm screened microphone cable carrying both data and power can be used to connect the boards over a maximum distance of 1,000 metres.

Operation

This board checks constantly the presence of the 20 kHz pilot signal on the 100 V loudspeaker line. There are two places where this check could be done. That is to say, directly behind the amplifier to monitor the amplifier output and on the loudspeaker input to monitor the line. The board can easily be mounted in the back of the amplifier rack.

Each board has an ‘address’ which is obtained by setting the DIP-switches on the board and which allows the board for communication with the Central Processor

Card.

A single standard 2 core 0.75 mm screened microphone cable carrying both data and power can be used for connecting the boards.

The board can be triggered in two different ways. If you select the line input, the absence of the 20 kHz pilot signal will be detected. If the external input is used, the closed contact of any external device

(smoke detector, micro switch, etc.) will trigger the board.

When the board has been triggered, it stops sending a message via the data test line to the Surveillance Switch Card and the

Central Processor Card generates visual or printed information concerning the error.

A jumper is provided to allow the fitted relay with break and make contacts to be active or non-active. The relay output contacts can be used for activating warning devices or switching-on spare amplifiers

(with external relays).
