General Information
The Model MI05-104 Merge/Isolate Cabinet is designed to operate in a multi-zone Page/Party®
communication system. The cabinet can selectively merge and isolate up to five zones that normally
operate independently. Each zone’s Page/Party® communication cable, which contains five party lines
and one page line, is connected to the merge/isolate cabinet.
When merged, the zones share a page line and a party line. For example, two zones can be merged while
the remaining zones in the system are isolated and continue to operate independently. Voice pages
generated from handset stations within one zone can be heard in the other zone when the two zones are
merged. The actual merging and isolating of the zones is controlled by a GAI-Tronics Model MS05-101
Master Desktop Station (or equivalent), which works in conjunction with the cabinet. The cabinet
supports a maximum of eight master stations.
In addition to merging and isolating the system zones, the cabinet can also perform other functions when
equipped with the following accessories, all of which can be added at any time:

MS05-101 Master Desktop Station or equivalent—A Page/Party® handset station that also provides
the capability for an operator to direct the merging and isolating of zones and manual initiation of
alarms when used in conjunction with the merge/isolate cabinet.

10959-201 Audio Messenger Interface (AMI)—A microprocessor-controlled tone/speech generator
that produces alarm tones (with speech messages) to alert people of emergency conditions.

10959-203 Audio Messenger Interface with Telephone Interface—Provides the same features and
functions as the Model 10959-201 described above, but adds telephone interface circuits to allow
telephone users the ability to make voice pages and to communicate with handset stations in the
Page/Party® system on party line 5.

GTK99019 Audio Interface—Allows other audio sources, such as 2-way radio equipment, to be
connected to the system.

Alarm Activation Switches—Allows external switch or relay contacts to activate the AMI. (The AMI
must be connected).

GTD99001-VLCX Volume Level Control Transmitter—Provides activation of remote devices using
existing system cable. This kit can be used to activate strobe lights via other devices or mute and
un-mute speakers at Page/Party® stations.

Master I/O Controller Switch Settings
The master I/O controller contains two hex switches labeled ADDRESS ID on the cover (See Figure 3).
These switches must be set to identify to the number of master stations in the system. This setting is
critical to ensure the master I/O controller recognizes the commands from all the master stations. Up to
eight master stations can be parallel-connected to the M/I cabinet.
Switches S1 and S2 are used to set the number of master stations in the system. The switch setting is
read as a hexadecimal number. Switch S1 is the LO address and switch S2 is HI address.

Alarm Mode Jumper
At the master I/O controller module, a jumper is pre-installed at the factory between terminals 15 and 16
at TB8. The following describes the modes of operation if the jumper is installed or removed:
Installed (manual alarm routing)—With the jumper installed, any alarm activation at the master or at
an external input will cause the AMI to become active, but the alarm audio will be broadcast only to the
master station(s). This feature allows the master station operator to direct the alarm audio to the zone(s)
affected by the alarm event.
Removed (automatic All-Zone alarm)—If the is jumper removed, any alarm activation at the master or
at an external input will cause the AMI to become active, and also automatically route the alarm audio to
all zones. The master operator can intervene and deselect zone(s) not affected by the alarm event.

Setting Jumpers and Adjustments
Line Balance Adjustment for Page Lines
A line balance adjustment is provided for each zone and the master stations. The line balance adjustment
is factory-set for optimum performance but may need adjustment in some situations. If the line balance
adjustment is set too low, the speaker volume will also be low. If the line balance adjustment is set too
high, the speaker audio will be distorted. To correct low or distorted audio, complete the following
adjustments.
Master Stations
Perform the following steps to properly adjust the line balance assembly:
1. Remove the page line conductors from terminals 7 and 8 on the termination PCBA. See Figure 2 for
terminal block location for the master station.
2. Place an ohmmeter across terminals 7 and 8 on the termination PCBA.
NOTE: The optimum page line balance is 33 ohms.
3. Adjust potentiometer R15 on the audio switching PCBA to achieve 33 ohms on the ohmmeter.
Field Stations
Perform the following steps to properly adjust the line balance assembly for all zones:
1. Remove the zone page line conductors from terminals 1 and 2 on the termination PCBA. See Figure
2 for the terminal block location for each zone.
2. Place an ohmmeter across terminals 1 and 2 on the termination PCBA.
NOTE: The optimum page line balance is 33 ohms.
3. Adjust applicable potentiometer on the audio switching PCBA for each zone to achieve a reading of
33 ohms on the ohmmeter. Refer to the chart below for the correct potentiometer for each zone.

Line Balance for Party Lines
The Model MI05-104 Merge/Isolate Cabinet provides line balancing for all system party lines. No user
adjustments are required for the party lines unless the party lines are made common and an external
device such as the Model 10959-203 Audio Messenger Interface with telephone interface circuits, or the
Model GTK99019 External Audio Interface, is used with the system. If party line four and/or five is used
for either the audio messenger interface or the external audio interface, the line balance must be removed
because each device provides the necessary line balancing for the designated party line.
To disable the internal line balance for either party line four and/or five, refer to the following table:

If using the Model 12584-001 I/O Expansion Module with the AMI for additional alarm inputs, the input
screen for each input; 9–40, must be programmed.
1. First, program the input Switch Type and the Current Message to be activated by the input.
2. Next, program the Current Output Combination to OUTPUT 1. This will cause output one to
activate while the input is active. The M/I cabinet will merge all zones during the alarm message as a
result of the active output.
Inputs 9–40 are independent of the master station and will be automatically broadcast to all zones of the
system. The following screen is an example of INPUT 9. The remaining inputs; 10–40, must be
programmed in the same fashion if used.

1. Mount the VLC transmitter PCBA to the cabinet panel just above the external interface PCBA. Refer
to Figure 2 for location of the external interface PCBA. The panel contains stand-offs for mounting
the VLC transmitter. Mounting screws are provided with the kit.
2. Plug the VLC transmitter PCBA cable assembly into J5 on the external interface PCBA.
Operation
The Model MI05-104 Merge/Isolate Cabinet’s functions are controlled by one or more Model MS05-101
Master Stations. The cabinet allows the master stations to selectively merge any combination of zones or
all zones for paging and party line communication. The cabinet also allows the master stations to make
voice pages to any combination of zones or all zones simultaneously. A detailed description of the master
station controls are outlined in the manual that is packaged with the master station.
External accessories can be added to the cabinet to expand the system operation. To accommodate the
additional devices using the page line, a priority scheme is used. There are a total of three levels of
priorities. If more than one device attempts to broadcast audio on the page line, only the audio from the
highest priority device will be broadcast from the paging speakers. The following priorities are assigned
(1 being the highest) and can not be altered:
1. Master Stations
2. Alarms
3. Page/Party® stations, Telephone Interface, and Audio Interface

Other Features
Call-In
The call-in feature is used as a means to contact the master station. When a Page/Party® handset station in
any zone goes off-hook on party line one, the yellow LED indicator on the master station illuminates and
a sonalert sounds. When the operator answers the call, the sonalert is turned off.
Page Monitor
The page line from any or all zones can be monitored via an integral speaker at the master station. When
the master station operator presses a zone push button, pages from that zone are heard from the master
station’s speaker. The operator can monitor more than one zone by selecting any combination of zone
push buttons.
Accessories
Model 10959-201 Audio Messenger Interface (AMI)
The Model 10959-201 Audio Messenger Interface (AMI) produces alarms or warning tones to alert
people of emergency conditions. The AMI can generate seven prioritized alarm tones, selected from a
default library of tones. Custom tones or messages can also be stored on the AMI for playback. These
tones/messages are activated by either the external field switches or by master stations. If an alarm is
activated from a field switch, the alarm is broadcast to all zones. If an alarm is activated from a master
station, the alarm can be broadcast to any zone, combination of zones or all zones.
NOTE: All alarm tones must be reset by the master station.
Detailed programming options and operation are explained in GAI-Tronics Pub. 42004-403 for the Model
10959-201.
Model 10959-203 Audio Messenger with Telephone Interface
The Model 10959-203 provides all of the same functions as the 10959-201 described above, but also
allows individuals to access the system page and party line using a standard telephone. Voice paging and
party line conversations are supported; however, this feature does not support dial out access from the
Page/Party® stations. By dialing a predetermined extension, the telephone caller can broadcast a page
over the system speakers in all zones and converse on party line five.
Detailed programming options and operation are explained in GAI-Tronics Pub. 42004-403 for the Model
10959-203.
Model GTK99019 Merge/Isolate Audio Interface
The Model GTK99019 Merge/Isolate Audio Interface allows access to the Page/Party® system from a
remote device. Access to the page line and party line four is supported. Possible applications for this
interface include broadcasting an external audio source over the paging speakers. One-way or two-way
radio communication between the Page/Party® handset stations and an external radio system is another
possible application.
Detailed operation is explained in the instructions provided in GAI-Tronics Pub. K99019iom.

Model D99001-VLCX Volume Level Control Transmitter
The VLC transmitter is activated when a voice page is generated from the master station. When active,
the transmitter produces a signal on the page line that activates remote devices that are set to monitor the
page line.
Typical applications of the VLC transmitter include:
Activating speaker amplifiers in locations such as conference rooms or crew’s quarters, where the
broadcasting of operational pages is unnecessary.
Activating strobes or other external signaling devices.
Increasing output to speakers and disabling handset page capabilities at Page/Party® field stations
equipped with VLC receivers.
