INTRODUCTION
Lencore’s n.FORM Head-End Rack unit replaces all the bulky headend equipment that that is associated
with music and paging systems. With the n.FORM Head-End Rack unit there is no need for amplifiers,
separate equalizers, special switching equipment or matching vendors for compatible product interfaces.
The n.FORM Head-End Rack unit’s technology is so sophisticated that it can allow zone additions,
modifications, deletions and other changes to the paging system on the fly, without rewiring. This
eliminates the need for running multiple home runs back to the electrical closet or through building risers
to create separate or additional zones.
The n.FORM Head-End Rack unit allows the ability to use up to 255 individual zones for paging using
standard DTMF tones through a POTS telephone line. The system is also programmed for all-call and
emergency broadcast paging. The system’s easy to use full one octave band equalizer can be adjusted to
either individual zones or all zones and provides exceptional fine tuning capabilities.
The creation, modification, addition and deletion of zones or groups for paging and masking can be easily
controlled through the i.LON’s® web browser using the included Lencore System Manager or through the
on-board keypad. No proprietary software needs to be installed on the client’s side, eliminating security
and migration issues. The Lencore n.Form System is an open platform system. In addition, volume and
equalizer settings for paging and music can be programmed through System Manager offering
tremendous adjustment and control capabilities with unprecedented flexibility.

SmartSwitch
Lencore’s Smart Switch detects and reports any wire failure or data interruption when paging for mass notification.
Should the transmission path fail, the switch automatically reroutes the data and voice so the system’s
performance continuity is not affected. The Smart Switch also has complete reporting capabilities to let the user
know when and where a break has occurred for ease of troubleshooting.

The Lencore system uses the i.LON® SmartServer to control the networked system. The i.LON® SmartServer offers
exceptional features, solid construction, plus the flexibility to monitor and control the system from virtually anywhere.
Through the i.LON® SmartServer you can access the System from a local network, a virtual private network, through
the internet, or directly through the i.LON® SmartServer user interface. The i.LON includes Lencore's System Manager
software allowing for control of sound masking volume and contour levels, as well as independent adjustment of music
and paging volume and system muting, while moving throughout the building.
See Lencore's System Manager manual for more information.
Global MPI
Utilizing a client’s existing telephone system (with open ports across multiple buildings), the Global MPI allows a user
to send an all-call page to every connected building at once. This allows real time communication for company or
campus wide announcements.
The unmatched capabilities of the Global/Local MPI combination allows for crystal clear broadcasts and emergency
communications, regardless of whether the facilities are located across the street from each other, across the country

Data, Audio, and Ground connections:
1. Wire the Data Out and Audio Out cables to the first OP’s Data In and Audio In. See the
installation and operations manual for the nFORM Rack OP for further wiring of OPs.
2. Wire a ground wire from the head-end “GND” to the first OP.
3. Wire the Data Out and Audio Out from the last OP to the head-end Data In and Audio In. This
will complete the Data and Audio loop for the included SmartSwitch to operate.
Local and Global Microphone and Phone Connections:
1. Wire the Local and Global MICs to the rear panel’s Local and Global MIC inputs.
2. Connect the Local and Global phone lines to the rear panel Local and Phone inputs. Note that a
POTS appearance line is required for both the Local and Global phone inputs. A 26 AWG line
cord should be used for connection to the phone input.
13
Audio Inputs:
1. Connect line-level audio sources to the Audio Inputs. Up to six audio sources can be used – five
are stereo inputs (Audio In 1-5) and one is mono (Audio In6). The mono input (Audio In6) is for
paging only and requires a MIC Pre-Amp and one Aux MIC Key Input if the source is a
microphone.
The AUX MIC KEY INPUTS are used to select the paging zone for Audio Input 6.

FACP Integration details
Signal definition: “In” and “Out” are as seen by the MNS system
UL2572 Control signals:
FACP Active In- This signal is asserted by the FACP when it wants to control the MNS system. If the
MNS is idle, the MNS will be controlled by the FACP. If the MNS is in emergency mode, the MNS will
relinquish control when it sees this signal.
Emergency Status Out- This signal is asserted by the MNS system when it wants to control the FACP
system. If the FACP is idle, the FACP will be controlled by the MNS system. If the FACP is already in
emergency mode, it will not relinquish control when it sees this signal.
Fault Status In- This signal is asserted by the FACP to indicate that there are faults in the FACP panel
that could affect the function of the combined FACP/MNS system.
Fault Status Out- This signal is asserted by the MNS to indicate that there are faults in the MNS system
that could affect the function of the combined FACP/MNS system.
Reset Override- This signal is asserted by either the FACP or a push button. It will stop the MNS system
from doing whatever it is doing and also take the MNS out of emergency mode.
Audio Reinforcement Signals:
MNS Audio Out- Line level audio from MNS
MNS PTT Out- Push To Talk signal asserted by MNS when MNS Audio signal is active. FACP should
ignore this PTT signal unless it is in a mode where MNS audio is desired to be sent through the FACP
controlled system.
FACP Audio IN- Line level audio from FACP (transformer isolated). This audio will be actual FACP
generated audio when the FACP is in control. It should be redirected MNS input Audio when not in
control, in order to facilitate supervision (refer to audio loop back graphic on next page for signal
flow).
FACP PTT In- Push To Talk signal asserted by FACP when FACP Audio signal is active. MNS will ignore
this PTT signal unless it is in a mode where FACP audio is desired to be sent through the MNS
controlled system.
16
Audio Loop Back
Masking Control Signals:
Mute Masking- This signal is asserted by the FACP when it is in a mode where it wants the MNS
system to mute any sound masking that could interfere with intelligibility of the FACP audio signal.
Supervision:
All dry contacts for the UL2572 control signals are terminated with an End of Line resistor set that
matches the system receiving the signal. For signals that are going to the MNS system, a double EOL
resistor design is incorporated to provide for a finer granularity on fault detection. The EOL Resistor is a
combination of a 2.2k and 6.8k resistor, as shown below.
Supervision must be enabled/disabled, as desired in the Headend Configurator application as well, to
prevent false triggering of the fault system.
EOL (end of line) Resistors.
Use 2.2K and 6.8K resistors as shown below at the FACP side (Lencore p/n LN10900).
Lencore p/N LN10900 has a pair of Orange Leads and a pair of White Leads. The orange leads go
towards the Head end. The white leads go towards the FACP.
Use EOL resistors on the MNS side as specified by the FACP documentation.

Using the System
Paging
CB-MIC Page
Remove the CB-MIC from its bracket and press the key switch to begin paging. The page is an all-call by default.
Alternatively, one of the pre-configured zone-override buttons on the front panel can be pressed. This will
temporarily override the all-call page. The button will flash yellow while active. The CB-MIC will page to
the zone associated with the button that was pressed. The page zone can be changed by pressing another
zone override button. The Reset/Stop button can be pressed to cancel the zone page and reinstate an all-call.
When the CB-MIC key is released, the page zone automatically switches back to an all-call.
The zone override buttons only override the page zone of the CB mic which is by default AllCall.
CB-MIC Emergency Page
In 'Normal' mode, the system cannot make an emergency page. The "Emergency Control" button will be
solid red.
If the system is in an FACP activated emergency, a CB-MIC emergency page cannot be made. The
"Emergency Control" button will be flashing red.
A CB-MIC emergency page can only be made with the system in UL2572 mode. When the unit is in
UL2572 mode, the "Emergency Control" button will be green.
To make an emergency CB-MIC page, pressing the Emergency Control button on the front panel (shown
below) will make a priority all-call emergency page. The Emergency Control button will flash green.
The emergency page will mute all other existing pages and music.
Local and Global MIC Paging
To make a Local or Global microphone page, simply press the key switch on the microphone and begin
the page. The page will be heard in the page zones created for the microphones. Note that the Global
MIC has priority over the Local MIC. A Global MIC page will mute a Local MIC page and music that are
part of the same zone.
32
Pre-Recorded Messages
Pre-recorded messages are messages that were recorded and stored in the unit. To play a pre-recorded
message, press one of the pre-recorded message buttons on the front panel (see below).
The "Evacuate" button defaults to a temporal 3-tone alarm.
The "Evacuate" and "Alert" alarms can be changed in the Configuration Utility.
Pressing one button will play a pre-recorded message. The button will flash yellow while the message is
playing. To cancel a pre-recorded message at any time, press the Stop/Reset button once. Note: If the
system is in an emergency state, pressing the "Stop/Reset" button a second time releases the system from
the emergency state. (Stop/Reset button means the square button under the Alert, shown above)
