INTERFACES
TW-47 Two-Way Radio/Walkie-Talkie Interface
Compatible with both Clear-Com and RTS,® the TW-47
connects virtually any set of walkie-talkies to anyone
on the wired partyline intercom; simply use one walkietalkie as a base station. The base station radio is keyed
from the intercom call signal. Extensive RF and EMI
isolation prevent interference from entering the intercom
system. Separate transmit and receive level controls are
provided, along with audio level and transmitter keying
indicators. The stand-alone interface is powered by the
intercom line.
TWC-701 Cable Adaptor
The TWC-701 two-channel cable adapter combines
two intercom channels onto a single 3-pin XLR cable.
All two-wire (TW) beltpack models require this adapter
to support a two channel connection to a multi-channel
Clear-Com system. The TWC-701 module can drive up
to 15 RS-703 beltpacks.
IF4W4 Four-Wire Interface
The IF4W4 four-channel interface connects Clear-Com to TV
cameras, two-way radios, satellite links, and other communications devices through either headset jacks or four-wire
circuits. The IF4W4 has selective partyline capability, and
features individual transmit, receive, and null controls as
well as transmit level indicators. Switchable mic or linelevel output for compatibility. The built-in test jack and
test tone provide quick nulling.
10 Clear-Com Encore
EF-701M Interface
The EF-701M interface converts a single channel of standard
or TW partyline intercom to four-wire audio, while also
converting call signals to RS-422 data (and back). The
resulting four-wire audio plus RS-422 data can then be sent
to a Clear-Com matrix port, fiber optic converter (modem)
or connected to another EF-701M over a twisted-pair cable
such as CAT-5E.
TW-12C System Interface
The TW-12C connects one intercom system to another.
Optoisolation eliminates hums and buzzes. The interface
will compensate for level and impedance differences
between systems. TW-12C allows Clear-Com-to-Clear-Com,
Clear-Com-to-RTS, and RTS-to-RTS system configurations.
The interface is powered by the connected intercom
system and translates “call” signals in both directions.
PERIPHERALS
RCS-2700 Programmable Source Assignment Panel
The 2RU RCS-2700 is ideal for medium to large installations
where channel assignments to remote stations frequently
change. Eight master channel sources can be assigned
to any 24 remote station destinations, and additional
RCS-2700 units can be connected for up to 15 sources
and 72 destinations. It can store 14 presets.
PIC-4704 Program Interrupt Controller
Each IFB controller handles up to four talent receivers.
For use with MA-704 and AX-704 IFB Control Panels or
intercom stations. This unit contains the circuitry for
selecting one of two program sources, sending the program
to the IFB channels, and interrupting it via the talent
control station. The controller has variable audio program
dip-level, monaural or stereo/split-feed outputs, and
improved and intuitive user interface. It requires a 6-pin
XLR cable for connection to MA-704/AX-704 control panels.
MA-704/AX-704 IFB Control Panel
These console-mount or rack-mount units control
“program interrupt” (IFB) to the talent. The MA-704
includes a gooseneck microphone connector, illuminated
“All Talent”, and four individual talent push buttons. The
AX-704 permits expansion in multiples of four. Both accept
the “hot mic out” from a Clear-Com station. An optional
CEP-RK rack mount fixture is available for the MA-704
and AX-704 panels.
TR-50 Talent Receiver
The TR-50 is an amplified single-channel talent beltpack
with volume control. It connects to the program interrupt
controller with a standard microphone cable. It has a
mini earphone jack output and includes a talent earset.
It should be paired with the CC-010A IFB ear set.
PRC-2 UHF Wireless IFB Receiver
The IFB receiver has default UHF frequencies that can be set
without power or a transmitter signal. Up to five additional
frequencies can be stored in scan mode. The design uses
+/-20 kHz FM deviation for efficient use of the bandwidth
with compandor noise reduction circuitry for an excellent
signal to noise ratio. The receiver will drive a wide variety
of earbuds, headphones and induction neck loops at substantial levels, with loads from 16 Ohms to 600 Ohms. It
should be paired with the CC-010A IFB ear set. Not available
for CE countries.
PTX-3 UHF Wireless IFB Transmitter
The wireless IFB transmitter base station has 256 selectable
UHF frequencies at 100 kHz increments. Microprocessor
control enables easy operation and eliminates transients
at turn-on and turn-off. Transmitter can be used as a
standalone device or rack mounted with the PRK-2 kit.
Not available for CE countries.
