perfect payphone to install at any location. City sidewalks,
retail stores, malls, hotel chains, airports, restaurants,
convention centers, colleges and hospitals are all potential
sites that allow you to reap the benefits of installing Ascension.
Its sleek, sophisticated appearance is the ticket to getting into
more locations, as well as keeping existing location owners
happy.
Ascension is designed for ultimate flexibility. It can be site
specific, location specific, account specific or customer
specific. This smartphone goes anywhere.
In addition to attracting traditional callers paying with coins,
Ascension's optional state-of-the-art card readers and data
jack encourage use by callers who demand the benefits of the
latest technology. Set-based operation eliminates the need for
third-party call controllers.
Intuitive operation is expected
Basic Ascension
from today's payphones and
that's what is delivered with
Ascension. Icons gently guide
users with a minimum of direct instruction. Strategically placed feature buttons
allow selection of multiple language voice prompts, receiver volume control and
next-call function through visual instructions. Larger, wider spaced keys make
dialing easier for everyone, especially those with sight impairment or a limited
range of hand motion.
The payphone environment can be harsh. In addition to providing maximum
security, the Ascension's high strength aluminum casting resists corrosion and will
maintain its good looks through a lifetime of hard service. A scratch-resistant,
polyester powdercoat finish gives the Ascension a look to appreciate. 0-ring seals
resist water to give the Ascension a long and reliable service life. All of these
features translate into more satisfied customers and less windshield time for
service technicians.
The Ascension payphone is rising to a new level of style, flexibility, durability and
user satisfaction.

Telephone Components
Ascension Telephone Housing
The Ascension's housing components are engineered and manufactured to improve on the longevity and
reliability of traditional paystation equipment. The Ascension is a result of Protel's innovation, technology, and
drive to create better products to fulfill your public communication needs.
The Ascension's housing components are included in the warranty. The housing components are backed by
Protel's one-year warranty.
Designed with the use of the latest 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) software, the Ascension offers our valued
customers benefits that include; increased component reliability, extended life cycles, and greater resistance
from vandalism and weather stresses. The coin track of the Ascension AE is similar to the GTE-style housing.
In addition, the Ascension telephone is designed to mount in panel mount style housings.
Construction of the Ascension Telephone
Ascension housings consist of a two-piece cabinet shell constructed of 15 gauge (1.8 mm) deep drawn 1006carbon steel that contains welded reinforcing members. The primary metalwork (deep draw) is accomplished
on an 800-ton press. Extra-heavy 9-gauge steel is used for the vault door, which also incorporates reinforcing
members. In order to reduce unauthorized access to the interior of the paystation, tongue-and-groove type
construction is used at the mating surfaces of the upper and lower housings and vault door. Case-hardened
inner plates that combat attempts to pry or drill into the housing further protect the lower housing and vault door.

Ascension® AE Style User’s Guide
Form & Fit of the Ascension Telephone
All Ascension housing components are 100% tested for proper form, fit, and function prior to shipment.
Statistical process control is accomplished through mechanical calibration, measuring, and master samples.
High precision machine tools and fixtures provide extremely close tolerances that result in fewer pry points and
enhanced weathering characteristics.

Vault Door Lock
The vault door lock is used to lock the vault door in place. It is made by Medeco or Abloy.
Vault Door Alarm Switch
A vault door alarm switch may be installed to monitor entrance to the coin box vault. This switch is mechanically
operated with a normally open contact closure.
Terminal Block
The terminal block located inside the lower housing of the phone is used to provide tip & ring signals to the
electronic chassis assembly.
Electronic Chassis
The electronic chassis assembly contains the transmission network, coin-control components and logic circuitry.
A battery pack and electromagnetic ringer (or optional double gong ringer) are also installed on the board. An
optional coin line board may be attached to the chassis assembly to provide the phone with the capability of
operating on a standard coin line. The paystation's operating program is stored in downloadable flash memory
allowing the phone to be reprogrammed when an update to the phone's operating program becomes necessary.
A program button is also provided which allows service personnel to initialize the phone.
Coin Mechanism
Electronic Coin Scanner - ECS II
This kit consists of a simple molded plastic track and an option board for the chassis that provides electronic
coin identification and validation functions. The electronic coin scanner recognizes all U.S. coins and most
Canadian coins, with the exception of $2.00 coins.
Coin Mechanism (Mechanical) - Coinco, Imonex
The standard mechanical coin mechanism (rejector mechanism) is a coin testing device that distinguishes coins
from slugs that may be encountered in the field. As coins are deposited, the coin mechanism sorts the coins
into three general size channels. One channel for quarters, one for nickels and one for dimes. Each deposited
coin is checked in its own channel for proper diameter, weight, and thickness. If a coin fails any of the tests, it
is diverted to the coin rejector outlet.
Dual Solenoid Actuator/Hopper and Coin Return Chute Assembly
The dual solenoid actuator/hopper and coin return chute assembly serve to relocate coins that are held in the
hopper as a result of a coin deposit. A paddle is influenced by the polarity of a voltage applied to the relay. The
polarity of the voltage causes the paddle to tilt thus opening the proper trap door causing the phone to collect or
refund coins.
Trigger Switch (Not Shown)
If used, the trigger switch provides three separate contact closures for nickel, dime, and quarter deposits. The
trigger switch is used with a mechanical coin mechanism.

Speed Dial Keys
The full-featured Ascension includes five speed dial buttons. Speed
dial buttons 1 - 5 correspond with speed dial locations 81 - 85. When
a speed dial button is pressed the corresponding speed dial message
is displayed on the top line of the display until cutover, at which time
the cutover message is displayed.
Displays
All Ascension displays have two lines of twenty characters, and are
available in either Liquid Crystal or Vacuum Fluorescent. Block mode
messaging is used with LC displays. VF displays use a combination
of block mode and scrolling messaging.
There are three modes of display operation: on-hook, off-hook, and
cutover. On-hook messages are not available for LC displays without
external power. To achieve on-hook messaging, the Ascension
requires external power. Messaging is described fully for each
display type.
Conveniently, the messages are programmed in ExpressNet in four
20-character blocks. ExpressNet uses screen 2.2.5.7 to program all
display messages. A layout of screen 2.2.5.7 is shown for each
display type. Languages in this document are referred to as
Primary/Secondary instead of English/Spanish or English/French.
For the sake of brevity the primary language will be referred to as PL,
and the secondary language will be referred to as SL.
See Appendix I for programming of messages for a LCD with no
external power.
See Appendix J for programming of messages for a LCD with
external power.
See Appendix K for programming of messages for a VFD.

Ascension® AE Style User’s Guide
Mounting the Paystation
Mounting Location
This section of the manual details the steps necessary to mount the paystation. The information below should
be used as a guideline when considering a suitable location for the installation of the paystation. After the
paystation is mounted, initialization and testing procedures should be performed to ensure that the phone is in
proper working order before leaving the phone site.
•
•
•
Location should have sufficient lighting.
Location should be free from excessive noise, vibration and dirt.
There should be at least a 6-inch clearance from fluorescent lights, transformers and similar devices to
avoid the possibility of inductive interference.
CAUTION!
This telephone comes equipped with a standard 32" armored handset cord. Be advised that the
design of the telephone firmly attaches this or any handset cord to the inside of the telephone. It
is not designed to break away. If this telephone is installed in a “Drive-up” location, the following
notice should be placed in a conspicuous location on the telephone.
"REMOVE HANDSET AND CORD FROM VEHICLE BEFORE MOVING OR SERIOUS INJURY
COULD RESULT!"
Leveling the Mounting Surface
The surface on which the paystation is to be mounted will either be a predrilled mounting surface or a
backboard specifically designed for the paystation. (If a backboard is to be used, it will be mounted to the
location where the phone is being installed.) In either case, it is essential that the paystation be mounted on a
surface that is vertically level with a deviation no greater than 1.5 degrees. If the paystation is tilted greater than
1.5 degrees in any direction, there exists the possibility of malfunction of the operation of the phone. Use the
information below to measure/adjust the position of the mounting surface. (If the phone is to be mounted in a
booth, refer to the booth manufacturer's specifications to determine mounting requirements.)
•
•
•
Using a level, place the level against either side of the mounting surface (left or right side).
Move the top or bottom end of the level away from the mounting surface as required to achieve a perfectly
vertical reading. (A deviation of zero degrees is desirable but if necessary, 1.5 degrees is acceptable.)
Adjust the mounting surface as required to achieve a perfectly vertical position.

seated properly there will be a space between the back surface of the nut and the front surface of the
bracket when the nut is tightened.
Connect the electronic coin validator connector (if installed) to the point labeled “ELECTRONIC COIN
VALIDATOR” on the chassis assembly.
If an electronic coin validator is installed, be very CAREFUL NOT to put any pressure on the white
T-shaped plastic flag located on the top right corner of the escrow relay. Putting pressure on this
flag may result in a relay jam condition.

•
•
External power is used to power the display when the phone is on hook.
Although a transformer is provided with each Ascension a centrally located
24VDC regulated power supply may be used to power several telephones.
Please note that 250 mA is required for each Ascension with VF display.
Additionally, the maximum cable lengths for providing this power are as
follows: 350' - 26 awg, 550' – 24 awg, and 880' - 22 awg.
Make sure that any external power is not connected. The wall transformer
(Protel PN: XRP0000009) should not be connected to any 120 VAC power
source. Also, if a common 24VDC power supply is used, it should not be
powered up.
Route the wires for the external power through the rear panel of the
telephone. Position the wires toward the voltage regulator PCB (Protel PN:
ASYPWA0238) located at the rear of the terminal block.
The 24VDC input to the voltage regulator PCB in insensitive to the polarity
of the input. Plug the female connector on the end of the wall transformer
assembly into J1 on the voltage regulator PCB or connect the wires from the
customer provided 24VDC power supply to J2 by lifting both tabs on the
connector, inserting the two wires, and pressing the tabs back down.
Connect one end of the three wire cable (WICA000080) to P1 on the voltage
regulator PCB and the other end to the controller board located on the back
plate in the upper housing.
Set the Power On/Off switch on the voltage regulator PCB to the off position.
Apply 120VAC to the wall transformer or power supply, and position the
power on/off switch on the voltage regulator PCB so that Power Good and
+5V Good LEDs are illuminated.
Make sure that the wires are routed properly to insure that they don’t get
pinched when the upper housing of the phone is connected to the lower
housing.
This completes the steps necessary to mount the paystation. Reference the
appropriate sections in the Ascension Series Flash 7000 Chassis User’s
Guide for information on initializing and testing the phone.

Connecting the Upper and Lower Housings Together
•
•
•
•
•
If available, use Protel's upper housing parking tool (Protel PN# HDS0000004A) to position the upper
housing of the phone onto the side of the lower housing. This provides easy access to the phone's internal
components while allowing an electrical connection (ribbon cable) between the dial assembly and the
chassis assembly (necessary for entering the program mode of the phone). If a parking tool is not
available, use the procedure outlined below to connect the dial assembly to the chassis assembly. If a
parking tool is available, begin with item “b” in the procedure shown below to connect the dial assembly to
the chassis assembly.
Disconnect the display power and datajack (if installed).
Rest the upper housing of the phone on the ledge of the lower housing.
Hold the hookswitch in the on hook position and then connect the 25-pin connector from the interface
board at the rear of the dial assembly, to the 25-pin connector labeled “UPPER HOUSING” on the chassis
assembly.
Do not secure the upper and lower housings of the phone together at this time. Access to the program
button is needed during the initialization procedure.

Note: These instructions and diagrams do not show the differences in the backplate assemblies
between the basic and full-featured Ascensions, however the procedures for both are the same for
both. It is recommended that on full-featured Ascension, the cable connections to the backplate
assembly be removed, and reinstalled after the procedure is finished.
Removal of the Information Card
•
•
•
Using a flat blade screwdriver loosen the backplate mounting screws while applying a small amount of
pressure on the front of the polycarbonate lens until the screws are fully clear of the top piece. Using this
method will insure that the captive, backplate mounting screws don’t become cross-threaded in the
backplate.
Gently tilt the backplate towards the rear to expose the information card (if present) and the polycarbonate
lens.
Remove the information card.
Installation of the Information Card
•
•
•
Assuming the backplate has been loosened, insure that the polycarbonate lens is properly located in the
main bezel and resting on the mounting ledge at the lower edge of the cutout.
Insert the information card so that it is located just behind the polycarbonate lens. Using this method to
install the information card provides the easiest method for clearing the metal protrusion located
below the coin entrance when positioning the polycarbonate lens and the information card.
Position the backplate assembly so that the backplate mounting screws and the alignment pin are properly
positioned and tighten the screws.
