EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION
The PMA7000M-S-series is a state of the art audio isolation amplifier and audio selector
that contains an automatic voice activated (VOX) intercom system. It can switch up to
three transceivers (Com 1, Com 2 and Com 3) and six receivers (Nav 1, Nav 2, ADF,
DME, MKR and AUX).
The TEL mode allows the PMA7000M-S to act as an audio interface between aircraft
headphone and microphones and specific aircraft approved (FAA/FCC) cellular telephone
equipment.
Warning: Use of non-aviation approved cellular telephone equipment is prohibited by regulation.
PS Engineering is not responsible for unauthorized use of cellular telephones.
The PMA7000M-S is only interfaced to the Trimble TrimConnect 3100 D at this time.
There are two unswitched inputs, for autopilot disconnect, and/or radar altimeter warning.
Push buttons select the receiver audio source provided to the headphones. A SPR button

PMA7000M-S Series Audio Selector Panel and Intercom System
Installation and Operator’s Manual
allows the user to listen to the receiver(s) selected on the cabin speaker. Except for the
unswitched inputs, all speaker audio is muted during transmit.
A rotary switch selects one of the three communication transceivers for the pilot and copilot position, and allows radio transmission. In "Split Mode" the PMA7000M-S has the
ability to allow the pilot and copilot to operate different transceivers independently. The
TEL mode allows the pilot to use the cellular telephone interface. External switches permit telephone operation for the copilot and passengers.
A fail-safe mode connects the pilot headphone and microphone to COM 1 if power is removed for any reason, or if the power switch is placed in the Off (Fail-safe) position.
A six-station voice activated (VOX) intercom is included in the PMA7000M-S. This system has PS Engineering’s exclusive IntelliVox™ circuitry that eliminates manual adjustments. The system contains six separate VOX mic circuits, and only opens the microphone
channel in use.
The intercom system incorporates pilot isolate and crew modes, two stereo (or mono depending on unit) music inputs with "Soft Mute," and LED indicators for swap and transmit indications. Intercom control is through front panel-mounted knob and 3 position
mode switch. A single volume controls intercom level for the pilot and copilot. Passenger
headphone volume is factory set, and adjusted in flight with headset-mounted volume
controls. Passenger volume control is further adjustable through screwdriver access in the
top of the unit. Intercom squelch is automatic.
An optional 3-light Marker Beacon receiver is integrated in the PMA7000M-S. This provides the necessary Marker Beacon lights and audio indications necessary for an Instrument Landing System (ILS) approach.
1.4

2.3
Equipment Installation Procedures
2.3.1 Cooling Requirements
Forced air cooling of the PMA7000M-S is not required. However the unit should be kept
away from heat producing sources (i.e. defrost or heater ducts, dropping resistors, heat
producing avionics) without adequate cooling air provided.
2.3.2 Mounting Requirements
The PMA7000M-S must be rigidly mounted to the instrument panel of the aircraft structure and within view and reach of the pilot position(s). Installation must comply with FAA
Advisory Circular AC 43.13-2A. The unit may be mounted in any area where adequate
clearance for the unit and associated wiring bundle exist.
Avoid installing the audio panel close to high current devices or systems with high-voltage
pulse type outputs, such as DME or transponders.
NOTE: The mounting hole configuration for the PMA7000M-S is identical to the
PMA6000 series and KMA-24 Audio Selector Panels.
2.3.3 Mounting Rack Installation
Remove the unit from the mounting tray by unscrewing the 3/32" hex-head screw that is in
the center of the unit. Use caution to avoid hitting the photo-detector lens. Carefully slide
the unit free of the tray. Set the unit aside in a safe location until needed. Install the tray
using six FHP 6-32 x ½" screws. The audio selector panel must be supported at front and
rear of the mounting tray.
2.3.4 Connector Assembly
The unit connectors mate directly with the circuit boards in the PMA7000M-S. The connectors are a Molex crimp-type, and require the use of a Molex hand crimp tool, EDP P/N
11-01-0203, CR6115B (or equiv.). The connectors are mounted to the unit tray with #440 screws, from the inside of the tray. Ensure that proper strain relief and chafing precautions are made during wiring and installation.
2.4
Cable Harness Wiring
Referring to the appropriate Appendix, assemble a wiring harness as required for the installation. All wires must be MIL-SPEC in accordance with current regulations. Two- and
three-conductor shielded wire must be used where indicated, and be MIL-C-27500 or
equivalent specification. Proper stripping, shielding and soldering technique must be used
at all times. It is imperative that correct wire be used.
Refer to FAA Advisory Circular 43.13-2A for more information. Failure to use correct
techniques may result in improper operation, electrical noise or unit failure. Damage
caused by improper installation will void the PS Engineering warranty.

PMA7000M-S Series Audio Selector Panel and Intercom System
Installation and Operator’s Manual
2.4.1 Noise
Due to the variety and the high power of radio equipment often found in today's general
aviation aircraft, there is a potential for both radiated and conducted noise interference.
The PMA7000M-S power supply is specifically designed to reduce conducted electrical
noise on the aircraft power bus by at least 50dB. Although this is a large amount of attenuation, it may not eliminate all noise, particularly if the amplitude of noise is very high.
There must be at least 13.8 VDC present at the bottom connector, pin 20, of the
PMA7000M-S for the power supply to work in its designed regulation. Otherwise, it cannot adequately attenuate power line noise. Shielding can reduce or prevent radiated noise
(i.e., beacon, electric gyros, switching power supplies, etc.) However, installation combinations can occur where interference is possible. The PMA7000M-S was designed in a
RFI hardened chassis and has internal Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) filters on all
inputs and outputs.
Ground loop noise occurs when there are two or more ground paths for the same signal
(i.e., airframe and ground return wire). Large cyclic loads such as strobes, inverters, etc.,
can inject noise signals onto the airframe that are detected by the audio system. Follow the
wiring diagram very carefully to help ensure a minimum of ground loop potential. Use
only Mil Spec shielded wires (MIL-C-275000, or better).
Radiated signals can be a factor when low level microphone signals are "bundled" with
current carrying power wires. Keep these cables physically separated. It is very important
that you use insulated washers to isolate the ground return path from the airframe to all
headphone and microphone jacks.
2.4.2 Existing KMA-24 Installation
If the installation replaces a KMA-24 (series -01, -02 or -03), the existing 44 pin connector can be used for the bottom connector of the PMA7000M-S tray as is, providing it is
properly installed and wired. No other changes are required except for external marker
lights (see Section 3.7.2 for details). The "key" in the existing connector must be located
between pins 7 and 8. This connector will be used in the bottom connector position. (See
Appendix for complete wiring harness details.)
The existing ground bus may be reused for radio shield connections, if it was constructed
so it can be relocated to the PMA7000M-S tray.
2.4.3 Existing PMA6000 installations
In 28-Volt aircraft, the dropping resistor may be removed, however, the 2 Amp breaker
should be changed to 3 Amp. If both old unit is stereo (PMA6000S or PMA6000MS), no
rewiring is necessary unless additional features are added.

PMA7000M-S Series Audio Selector Panel and Intercom System
Installation and Operator’s Manual
2.4.3.1 Stereo PMA7000M-S installations into monaural PMA6000, PMA6000M.
Installations replacing PMA6000 or PMA6000M require re-wiring of the top connector to
accommodate the stereo configuration. See appendixes for detailed interconnect information.
2.4.4 Power
The PMA7000M-S-Series are compatible with both 14 and 28 Volt DC systems. A two
(2) Amp circuit breaker is required for 14 VDC installations, and a three (3) Amp breaker
for 28 VDC aircraft. Power and ground wires must be a twisted #18 AWG pair. Connect
airframe power ground to J1 (bottom connector) Pin Z only. No dropping resistors are
required.
2.4.5 External Push-to-Talk
An important part of the installation is the PTT (Push-To-Talk) switches that allow the
use of your aircraft communications radio for transmissions. There are three typical configurations that can be used. Select the case that best fits the installation. Only the person
who presses their PTT switch will be heard over the radio. If the pilot and copilot both use
the PTT, the only pilot position has access to the radio. The pilot position will have PTT
control regardless of the mic selector switch or copilot PTT when the PMA7000M-S is in
the FAIL-SAFE mode.
CASE I: PTT is built into both pilot and copilot yokes.
CASE II: PTT is in pilot yoke only. This configuration requires a modified external PTT
switch plugged into the copilot's microphone jack. (See Appendix A). When the copilot's
PTT is pressed, the intercom switches the microphone audio from pilot to copilot mic.
CASE III: No built in PTT. This requires two built in PTTs to be installed, or modified
external PTT switches to be used. Modify external PTT as required (See Appendix A).
2.4.6 Transmit Interlock
Some communications transceivers use a transmit-interlock system. To fully utilize the
Split Mode feature, this function must be disabled. Consult that manufacturer's installation
manual.
2.4.7 "Swap" Mode
When a momentary, normally open, push-button switch is connected between pin 10 on
the top connector and aircraft ground, the user can switch between Com 1 and 2 by depressing this switch without having to turn the mic selector switch. This yoke-mounted
switch eliminates the need to remove your hands from the yoke to change transceivers.
2.4.8 Backlighting
The PMA7000M-S has an automatic dimming of the pushbutton annunciator LEDs and
marker lamps controlled by a photocell. Control of the unit backlighting is through the air200-070-0006

Rev. 6, Nov 98
PS Engineering
PMA7000M-S Series Audio Selector Panel and Intercom System
Installation and Operator’s Manual
craft avionics dimmer. Connect the dimmer control line to J1 pin D for 14 volt systems,
and to J1 pin F for 28 volt systems. Pin E is light ground.
If an external dimmer control is not used, a constant low level back light illumination can
be established for nighttime viewing. Pin D or F (depending on system voltage) must be
tied to power (J1, pin 20) for the back lighting system to work. The photocell mounted in
the unit face will automatically adjust the intensity of the push-button annunciator LEDs.
2.4.9 Unswitched inputs
J1, pin T is the unswitched input number 1 and J1 pin 17 is unswitched input 2. These inputs are presented to the pilot and copilot regardless of the audio configuration, and will
always mute the entertainment inputs. These 510Ù inputs can be used for altimeter DH
audio, GPS waypoint audio, autopilot disconnect tones, air-to-ground (Flitefone) telephone ringer or any other critical audio signal. This input is not related to the cellular telephone interface.
2.4.10 Intercom wiring
The top connector (J2) is for the intercom and additional functions. See Appendix for intercom connection configurations. It is critical to the proper operation of this system to
have this connector wiring made in accordance with these diagrams. Use 2- and 3conductor. MIL-spec cable as shown. Connect the shields at the audio panel end only, and
tie to the audio low inputs as shown.
NOTE: The top connector harness can be custom made by PS Engineering, Inc. Simply
call the factory and obtain a wire harness work-sheet. The harness will be made to your
specifications and fully functionally tested. All hardware is included.
2.4.10.1
Entertainment Input
NOTE: Use the low level output of any entertainment device to connect to
the audio panel. Maximum signal level is 1 VAC p-p.
DO NOT use a speaker-level output, this will cause internal damage in the
audio panel
2.4.10.1.1 Stereo entertainment (7000S, 7000MS)
Two stereo entertainment devices (CD player, cassette player, etc.) can be connected to
the unit. Install two 1/8-inch stereo jacks in a convenient location so that the pilot can plug
in the entertainment devices into the system. The audio signal at the entertainment input
must be a minimum of 500 mV P-P per channel for optimum music performance.
All entertainment devices must be switched off for both takeoff and landing.
2.4.10.1.2 Entertainment distribution
Entertainment source #1 provides music for the pilot and copilot positions, while entertainment source #2 provides music for the four passenger positions. The PMA7000M-S200-070-0006
Page 2-5

PS Engineering
PMA7000M-S Series Audio Selector Panel and Intercom System
Installation and Operator’s Manual
system incorporates a "Soft Mute" system. This will mute the entertainment devices during ICS or radio conversation.
Any signal appearing in the unswitched audio inputs will always mute the entertainment
sources, even though the passengers may not hear the audio tone itself.
Entertainment inputs #1 and #2 can be paralleled so a single entertainment source can
serve both the passengers and the crew. It is suggested however, that a switch (DPDT) is
installed between the single entertainment device and entertainment input #1. This will allow the pilot and copilot to decide if they hear entertainment while in the Crew mode.
Caution: Local oscillators and internal signals from some entertainment equipment can
cause undesired interference with other aircraft systems. Before takeoff, operate the entertainment devices to determine if there is any adverse effect within the aircraft systems.
If any unusual operation is noted in flight, immediately switch off the entertainment devices.
All entertainment devices must be switched off for both takeoff and landing.
2.4.10.1.3 Entertainment 2 Mute (Pin V)
The ICS button on the PMA7000M-S controls the muting (“Karaoke mode”) of entertainment source #1.
Connecting J2 pin V to ground through a SPST switch places the entertainment #2 music
source into the Karaoke Mode. In this mode, incoming music and intercom conversation
will not mute the music for the passengers’ intercom net. This allows uninterrupted music
during casual conversation and at times when radio communications are of lessor importance.
2.4.11 Com 3 Audio
As installed in the standard configuration, the PMA7000M-S Com 3 audio is placed in the
audio when the mic selector switch is in the Com 3 position (fully CCW). Pushing the receiver selector buttons can monitor Com 1 and Com 2 audio. If monitoring of Com 3 is
desired in the Com 1 or Com 2, connect Com 3 audio in parallel to the AUX input (J1, pin
11).
2.4.12 PA Mute (J1, Pin 18)
Pin 18 of J1 is a TTL logic output that is pulled low during PTT operation. This serves as
an input to external public address system to prevent feedback during transmissions.
2.4.13 VOX Override (J2, Pin U)
Connecting pin U of the PMA7000M-S of J2 to ground will force the IntelliVox™ open.
This can be hooked up as a hot mic switch which will place all microphones on the intercom. This can also be connected through a momentary switch to serve as a VOX test
switch, if desired. Because the IntelliVox™ will close in the presence of a steady tone, this
pin is used in testing to defeat the IntelliVox™ software.

2.4.14 IRS Installation (Option 1, and 2)
To install the IRS, a momentary push button switch is required. This switch can be located
any where in cockpit convenient to the pilot's reach. The switch must be connected to pin
19 of J2 of the PMA7000M-S.
2.4.15 Audio Message Installation (Option 1 and 2 only)
The audio message installation requires inputs from an external annunciator, such as an
Electronics International engine gage system. A falling edge (input pulled low) when applied to the appropriate pin of the connector will cause the message to be played, repeating every two seconds, until the acknowledge (“ACK”) button is pushed.
Install the “ACK” button in a location convenient to the pilot and copilot position. This
switch is a momentary SPST switch between J2 Pin W and ground.

AC 43.13-2A, aircraft manufacturers’ recommendations and FAA-approved technical
data.
Warning:
It is probable that radio interference will occur in the split mode when the frequencies of
the two aircraft radios are adjacent, and/or the antennas are physically close together.
PS Engineering makes no expressed or implied warranties regarding the suitability of
the PMA7000M-S in Split Mode.
2.8
Wireless telecommunications interface
The PMA7000M-S has interface capability with units such as the Trimble TrimConnect
3100 D. It is the user’s responsibility to determine the appropriate legal use of the
equiment, and provide the services.
Interface to the 3100 D is through the J1 (bottom) connector, pins 14 and N. Pin 14, labeled cellphone ring, is connected to pin V of the 3100D J3 connector and pin N of J1 is
connected to pin W of the J3 connector. On the TrimConnect interface these are listed as
data/fax lines, but they are used for voice interface in this case.
Use a 2-conductor with shield cable, and connect the shield to Pin M of the 3100 D J3.
If interface is desired with another type of wireless telecommunications unit, the aircraft
owner can purchase an after-market interface cable. By Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations, these can only be used on the ground in the United States.
Interface cables manufactured by AXCELL are available from Mobile Quest (800) 8821288, (215) 734-7000 phone, (215) 734-8000 fax. The following is a partial list of available interface cables:

2.8.1 Hook Switches
While the mic selector acts as the hook switch for the pilot, additional hook switches must
be installed to have full access to the cellphone system. The copilot hook switch is a SPST
switch that connects pin L of J2 on the PMA7000M-S to ground to place the copilot on
the cellphone.
200-070-0006
Page 2-9
Rev. 6, Nov 98
PS Engineering
PMA7000M-S Series Audio Selector Panel and Intercom System
Installation and Operator’s Manual
PMA7000M-S J2, pin M is the passenger hook switch. Install a SPST switch in a location
adjacent to each passenger headset where cellphone use is desired. When pin M is connected to ground through any switch, the passenger microphones are all on the cellphone
system.
The wireless communication “tel” system utilizes an intercom loop. Therefore, any time
the cellphone is in use from the pilot or copilot side, pilot and copilot will lose intercom
capability. In the ALL mode, when the passengers’ activate the cell phone, the pilots will
have intercom, and continue to hear and transmit over the avionics normally. However the
passengers will not have intercom, because they are on the telephone.
To prevent unwanted distractions, only the pilot and copilot will hear an incoming call ring
signal. They can then decide to allow a passenger to activate the hook switch and use the
telephone.
If the pilot has selected “TEL” mode, the passengers cannot access the telephone in the
“CREW” intercom mode, but they will hear the call.

2.11
Unit Installation
To install the PMA7000M-S, gently slide the unit into the mounting rack until the holddown screw is engaged. While applying gentle pressure to the face of the unit, tighten the
3/32" hex-head in the canter of the unit until it is secure. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN.
Warning: Do not over-tighten the lock down screw while installing the
unit in tray. Internal damage will result.
2.11.1 Operational Checkout
1. Apply power to the aircraft and avionics. Switch on the unit by pressing the volume
knob.
2. Plug headsets into the pilot, copilot, and occupied passenger positions.
3. Rotate the Mic Selector Switch to the Com 1 position.
4. Verify that the Com 1 button lights. Verify that the green transmit LED (Light Emitting Diode) near the mic selector is not illuminated. If the LED is on, stop testing and
troubleshoot the microphone PTT installation.
5. Verify proper transmit and receive operation from the copilot position, noting that the
copilot PTT switch allows proper transmission on the selected transceiver.
6. Verify that pushing the COM 2 button causes the button to illuminate, and the Com 2
receiver to be heard. Verify operation on Com 1 from the pilot position.
7. Repeat for Com 2 and Com 3, (if installed).
8. Rotate the mic selector switch to the COM 1/2 position. Verify that the pilot communicates on Com 1 and the copilot on Com 2.
9. Rotate the mic selector switch to the COM 2/1 position. Verify that the pilot communicates on Com 2 and the copilot on Com 1.
10. Rotate the mic selector switch to the TEL position. Verify that the pilot headset is
connected to the cellular telephone system (if installed). Verify that by using the pilot
side PTT, the pilot can transmit on Com 1. The copilot has no transmit capability in
TEL mode.
11. Verify proper operation of all receiver sources by selecting them using the button.
Note that the button for the receiver sources stays in, and the button illuminates to
show which source is in use.
12. Push in the SPR button. Verify that all selected audio is heard in the cockpit speaker.
Verify that the audio mutes when the mic is keyed.

system by systematically switching the unit on and off, while monitoring the other avionics and electrical equipment on the aircraft.
2.11.1.1
Marker Checkout (7000M-S only)
1. Connect a ramp generator at the antenna end of the marker coax. With the unit under
test in HI sensitivity, verify that a 160 µV, modulated 95% with 1300 Hz, signal will
illuminate the amber (M) marker light, and that marker audio is present in the headphones when the Marker Audio (M) push-button has been depressed. Select SPR for
speaker to verify marker audio availability on the cabin speaker. Verify that the white
(A) and blue (O) lights will illuminate within ± 3dB of the amber lamp, with 3000 HZ
and 400 Hz applied, respectively.
2. Repeat with the unit in LOW sensitivity, with 430 µVolts applied.
3. Connect the marker antenna and verify proper operation.
2.11.2 Receiver Sensitivity
Although the PMA7000M meets FAA TSO-C35d sensitivity specifications, the sensitivity
of the receiver has been adjusted to meet real world requirements (150µV and 430µV,
soft). This will usually eliminate the need for the avionics shop to reduce the sensitivity in
the field so as to prevent early detection of the marker beacons. If your particular installation requires more or less sensitivity, see adjustment section 2.6, and figure 2-1.
2.12
Cellular Interface Checkout
When a wireless telecommunication system is installed and configured, a dial tone will appear in the headset of the pilot when the mic selector is in the “Tel” position. In “ALL”
intercom mode, a dial tone will be heard whenever the copilot or passenger’s hook switch
is closed.

Internal Recorder Checkout
With headset plugged into pilot’s side jacks, tune COM 1 to local frequency, such as FSS
or ATC ground.
Select Com 1 on mic selector switch, and record at least five incoming radio transmissions.
This audio should only appear in the pilot’s headset, and only be incoming transmissions
from the transceiver selected in the mic select switch.
Depress the panel or yoke mounted playback switch, and verify that all five messages play,
in the order received.
Repeat for COM 2, and COM 3 (if installed).

Audio Selector (All models)
Receiver audio is selected through two momentary and six latched, push-button, backlit
switches. Com 1 and Com 2 are the momentary switches.
Because the rotary microphone selector switch controls what transceiver is being heard,
the Com l and Com 2 push-buttons are of the momentary type and do not remain in when
selected. This is also part of the "auto” function. You will always hear the audio from the
transceiver that is selected for transmit by the rotary mic selector switch.
The users can identify which receivers are selected by noting which of the green switch
LEDs are illuminated. Push buttons labeled Nav 1, Nav 2, DME, MKR (Marker), ADF,
AUX (auxiliary), and SPR (Speaker) are "latched" type switches. When one of these but-

tons is pressed, it will stay in the "in" position. Press the switch again and it be in the "out"
position and remove that receiver from the audio.
3.2.1 Speaker Amplifier
The "SPR" in the push-button section stands for speaker. This switch will place all selected audio on the cockpit speaker when this switch is selected. NOTE: The speaker amplifier is not active in the "Split Mode."
3.3
Power Switch (Fail Safe Operation)
Unit power is turned on and off by pushing the volume knob. In the OFF or "FAIL-SAFE"
position, the pilot is connected directly to Com 1. This allows communication capability
regardless of unit condition. Any time power is removed or turned OFF, the audio selector
will be placed in the fail-safe mode.
The power switch also controls the audio selector panel functions, intercom, and marker
beacon receiver, (PMA7000M-S only). Unless the mic selector is in Com 3 mode, at least
one of the selected audio LEDs will be on (Com 1 or Com 2).
3.4
Microphone Selector
When the mic selector switch is in the Com 1 position, both pilot and copilot will be connected to the Com l transceiver. Only the person who presses their Push To Talk (PTT),
will be heard over the aircraft radio. Turning the rotary switch to the COM 2 position will
place pilot and copilot on Com 2.
The PMA7000M-S gives priority to the pilot’s PTT. If the copilot it transmitting, and the
pilot presses his PTT, the pilot’s microphone will be heard over the selected com transmitter.
Turning the mic selector fully counterclockwise places the pilot and copilot on Com 3.
Com 3 receive audio is automatically placed in the headset (and speaker if selected). Com
1 and/or Com 2 receiver audio can be selected to monitor those transceivers.
The PMA7000M-S-Series has an automatic selector mode. Audio from the selected transceiver is automatically heard in the headsets and speaker. You can check this function by
switching from COM 1 to COM 2 and watch the selected audio light on the selector change
from COM 1 to COM 2. This ensures the pilot will always hear the audio from the transceiver he is transmitting on.
When switching the mic selector rotary switch from COM 1 to COM 2, while COM 2 audio
had been selected, Com 1 audio will continue to be heard. This eliminates the pilot having
to switch Com 1 audio back on, if desired.
When switching from COM 1 to COM 2 while Com 2 has NOT been selected, Com 1 audio
will be switched off. In essence, switching the mic selector will not effect the selection of
Com audio.
The “TEL” position, fully CW on the mic selector switch, is the pilot’s “hook” switch,
when the system is interfaced to an appropriate approved wireless telecommunication

system, such as the Trimble 3100 D. Placing the mic selector in TEL placed the pilot microphone and headphones on the cellphone. The pilot PTT will switch the pilot mic to the
COM 1, and allow continued aircraft communications as well.
NOTE: Placing the mic selector switch in the TEL position will disable pilot and copilot
intercom, as the intercom circuit is transferred to the telephone use. In crew or ISO mode,
placing the switch in TEL mode removes the passengers access to the telephone.
3.4.1 Swap Mode (Switch from Com 1 to Com 2 remotely)
With a yoke mounted, momentary switch, the pilot can change from the current Com
transceiver to the other by depressing this switch. When "Swap Mode" is active, an annunciator in the lower right corner of the unit will illuminate, indicating that the Mic Selector switch position is no longer current. To cancel "Swap Mode," the pilot may either
press the yoke mounted switch again, or turn the Mic Selector Switch to the Com that is
active.
3.5
Split Mode
Turning the rotary switch to COM 1/COM 2 places the PMA7000M-S into "Split Mode."
This places the pilot on Com 1 and the copilot on Com 2. An example of this useful feature is when the pilot may want to talk to Air Traffic Control, while the copilot may be
speaking to Flight Watch. Although this mode has limitations (see below) we believe you
will find this to be a useful feature.
Switching to Com 2/Com l will reverse the “Split Mode” radio selection. The pilot will be
on Com 2 and the copilot will be on Com 1.
Note:
Due to the nature of VHF communications signals, and the size constraints in
general aviation aircraft, it is probable that there will be some bleed-over in the
Split mode, particularly on adjacent frequencies.
PS Engineering makes no warranty about the suitability of Split Mode
in all aircraft conditions.
Note: Split Mode does not turn off other (Nav, ADF, etc.) selected audio to pilot. However, the
copilot will only hear the selected communications receiver.
3.5.1 Split Mode ICS
In split mode, the pilot and copilot are usually isolated from each other on the intercom,
simultaneously using their respective radios. Depressing the ICS button in Split Mode will
activate VOX intercom between the pilot and copilot positions. This permits intercommunication when desired between the crew. Pressing the ICS button again disables this crew
intercom function.

3.6.1 IntelliVox™ VOX-Squelch
No adjustment of the IntelliVox™ squelch control is necessary. Through three individual
signal processors, the ambient noise appearing in all six microphones is constantly being
sampled. Non-voice signals are blocked. When someone speaks, only their microphone
circuit opens, placing their voice on the intercom.
The system is designed to block continuous tones, therefore people humming or whistling
in monotone may be blocked after a few moments.
For best performance, the headset microphone must be placed within ¼ inch of your lips,
preferably against them. It is also a good idea to keep the microphone out of a direct wind
path. Moving your head through a vent air stream may cause the IntelliVox™ to open
momentarily. This is normal.
For optimum microphone performance, PS Engineering, Inc. recommends installation of a
Microphone Muff Kit from Oregon Aero (1-800-888-6910). This will not only optimize
VOX performance, but will improve the overall clarity of all your communications.

3.6.2 Volume Control
The volume control knob adjusts the loudness of the intercom for the pilot and copilot
only. It has no effect on selected radio levels, music input levels or passengers' volume
level.
Adjust the radios and intercom volume for a comfortable listening level for the pilot. Most
general aviation headsets today have built-in volume controls; therefore, passenger volume

Installation and Operator’s Manual
can be adjusted at the headset. If desired, passenger volume level can be adjusted by a
screwdriver adjustment at the top of the tray (see figure 2-1).
3.6.2.1
Mono headsets in Stereo Installation
All passenger headsets are connected in parallel. Therefore, if a monaural headset is
plugged in to a PMA7000M-S Stereo installation, one channel will be shorted. Although
no damage to the unit will occur, all passengers will lose one channel. PS Engineering
modifies headsets to add stereo capability, using high-fidelity speakers. Contact factory for
details.
3.6.3 Intercom Modes
The lower switch on the left side is a 3-position mode switch that allows the pilot to tailor
the intercom function to best meet the current cockpit situation. The description of the
intercom mode function is valid only when the unit is not in the "Split" mode. Then, the
pilot and copilot intercom is controlled with the ICS button.
ISO: (Up Position): The pilot is isolated from the intercom and is connected only to the
aircraft radio system. He will hear the aircraft radio reception (and sidetone during radio
transmissions). Copilot will hear passengers’ intercom and Entertainment 1, while passengers will hear copilot intercom and Entertainment 2. Neither will hear aircraft radio receptions or pilot transmissions.
ALL: (Middle Position): All parties will hear the aircraft radio and intercom. Crew will
hear Entertainment 1, passengers will hear Entertainment 2. During any radio or intercom
communications, the music volume automatically decreases. The music volume increases
gradually back to the original level after communications have been completed.
CREW (Down Position): Pilot and copilot are connected on one intercom channel and
have exclusive access to the aircraft radios. They may also listen to Entertainment 1. Passengers can continue to communicate with themselves without interrupting the Crew and
also may listen to Entertainment 2.
Anytime the PMA7000M-S is in either the COM 1/COM 2, COM 2/COM 1, ("Split Mode"),
the pilot and copilot intercom is controlled with the ICS button. The passengers will
maintain intercommunications, but never hear aircraft radios.
3.6.3.1 Entertainment Input
The audio selector panel has provisions for two separate entertainment input devices.
They operate independently in the PMA7000M-S. The volume control does not affect music level.
While in the ISO (Isolate) mode, the copilot will hear Entertainment 1 while the four passengers will hear Entertainment #2. The pilot will hear entertainment 1, at a muted level.
In normal operation, whenever a person speaks, or if the aircraft radio becomes active, the
music will automatically mute and then will gradually return to the original listening level
when the intercom or radio conversation ceases.

PS Engineering
PMA7000M-S Series Audio Selector Panel and Intercom System
Installation and Operator’s Manual
When in the ALL mode, pilot and copilot will hear Entertainment 1 input while all passengers will hear the Entertainment 2 source. While in the CREW mode, pilot and copilot will
hear entertainment input #1 while the passengers may listen to entertainment input #2.
It is also possible to use only one entertainment input device for both entertainment inputs.
It is suggested however, that a switch (DPDT) is installed between the single entertainment device and entertainment input #1. This will allow the pilot and copilot decide if they
hear entertainment while in the Crew mode.
3.6.3.2
Soft Mute and Soft Mute inhibit
The Soft Mute feature assures that the aircraft radio transmissions will not be missed due
to entertainment playing. When there is radio reception or intercom conversation, the music level is dropped to a low, or background level. When the radio or intercom traffic
ceases, the level gradually returns to normal.
The front panel ICS switch controls muting of entertainment source #1. Pushing this button places the ICS in Karaoke (or sing along) mode, which inhibits the soft mute feature.
This allows the music to continue uninterrupted by intercom or radio traffic when cockpit
workload is appropriate. Pushing the button again will release the mute inhibit function.
The passenger music, source #2, can be placed in the Karaoke mode if a remote switch is
installed in the aircraft. See wiring information for details.

Telephone Mode
Each intercom position has a "hook switch." The pilot's hook switch is the "TEL" mode
on the audio panel, the others are discrete switches mounted adjacent to the headset jacks.
When the intercom is in ALL mode, the pilot can speak on the phone only if the mic selector switch is in TEL position. All intercom positions will hear the telephone conversation. Anyone who places his or her switch into the “off-hook” position will also be heard

on the phone. All will hear selected audio. Com 1 audio is automatically heard in the headsets. The pilot will have transmit capability on Com 1, simply by using the PTT switch.
In CREW mode, the pilot and copilot are may use the telephone, with their respective
hook switch (the pilot selects TEL on the mic selector). Any passenger who places their
switch into the off-hook position will also have access to the phone, and all four passengers will hear the conversation.
In ISO intercom mode, when the PMA7000M-S is in the TEL mode, the pilot position is
in the "Phone Booth." Only the pilot will hear the telephone, and only he will be heard. He
will also have access to Com 1, and will transmit on that radio using the PTT. All selected
audio is provided. If any other passenger goes “off hook” they will hear the phone.
In all cases, only the pilot (and copilot in ALL or CREW) will hear the cellphone ring. At
that time they can chose to allow a passenger to take the call, or answer the phone.
Note: Because the cellphone uses an intercom circuit, all stations on that circuit will lose intercom capability when the cellphone is in use.
3.8
Marker Beacon (PMA7000M-S)
The optional Marker Beacon Receiver uses visual and audio indicators to alert you when
the aircraft passes over a 75 MHz transmitter.
The Blue lamp, labeled "O," is the Outer Marker lamp and has an associated 400 Hertz
'dash' tone. The lamp and tone will be keyed at a rate of two tones/flashes per second
when the aircraft is in the range of the Outer Marker Beacon.
The Amber lamp, labeled "M," is the Middle Marker lamp and is coupled with a 1300
Hertz tone. It is keyed alternately with short 'dot' and long 'dash' bursts at 95 combinations
per minute.
The White lamp, labeled "I," is the Inner marker and has a 3000 Hertz 'dot' tone. The lamp
and tone will be keyed at a rate of six times per second.
The audio from the Marker Beacon Receiver can be heard by selecting the "MKR" pushbutton switch. To adjust the volume level, there is a service adjustment located on the top
of the unit. See Section 2.5
A three position switch is used to set the receiver sensitivity and to test the indicator
lamps. Use "HIGH" sensitivity initially. This allows you to hear the outer marker beacon
about a mile out. Then select the “LOW” sensitivity to give you a more accurate location
of the Outer Marker. The momentary down switch position is labeled "TEST" and illuminates all three lamps simultaneously to assure the lamps(internal and external) are in
working order. TST does not activate MM sense ouput.
3.9
Internal Recorder System (Option 1 and 2 only)
The Intercom Recording System (referred to here as the IRS) is a digital recording system
allowing automatic storage and immediate playback of all incoming aircraft radio receptions.

PS Engineering
PMA7000M-S Series Audio Selector Panel and Intercom System
Installation and Operator’s Manual
Operating as a continuous loop recorder, (first message received will be the last heard),
the recorder has one minute of recording time and up to 16 messages. With its own built
in VOX circuit, there are no buttons to press to start recording. The system automatically
begins to record the instant the radio becomes active. Only aircraft radio audio in pilots
headset is recorded and only the pilot will hear the playback audio.
3.9.1 Operation
Recording is automatic; there is no action required by the pilot. To play back the last recorded message, simply press the momentary switch associated with the IRS. Each additional press of the button will play the preceding recorded message.
3.9.1.1 Audio Messaging system (Option 1, Option 2, only)
When this option is installed, the PMS7000M-S contains six stored messages. An outside
annunciator, such as an Electronics International engine gage system triggers these messages. When there is an announcement, it will be repeated every two seconds until the remote- mounted ACK button is pushed. This stops the played annunciation, until the next
announcement is required (the next falling edge).
3.9.1.2 Concurrent Messages
When a recorded message or audio annunciation is playing, the other audio source is momentarily inhibited. For instance, if an IRS message is being played, the audio annunciation
will not begin until the IRS message is finished. Conversely, the IRS recording cannot be
played as long as there is an aural alert being played. There is no recording made if playing
a recording or annuncuation.

Appendix A External PTT Hook Up
Part of the installation includes the installation of PTT (Push To Talk) switches that allow the use of your
aircraft radio for communications transmissions.
There are three configurations that can be used, you must select the case that best fits your installation.
NOTE: Only the person who presses their PTT switch will be heard over the radio.
CASE I
The PTT is built into the pilot and copilot yokes
Simply install the plugs from the headset into the aircraft headphone jacks. Then use the yoke mounted
PTT to transmit. No other action is required.
CASE II
Built in PTT only on the pilot side only
This configuration requires a modified external PTT switch plugged into the copilot's mic jack. (See Details Below) When the copilot's PTT is depressed, this activates an internal relay that switches the mic
audio to the aircraft radio from the pilot to the copilot.
Case III
No built in PTT switch at all.
Two built-in PTT must be installed, or two external, modified PTT switches will be required for both the
pilot and copilot. Modifications to the PTT are required. (See details below)
Push To Talk Modifications
When received from the manufacturer, an after-market PTT switch opens the mic audio path to the "ring"
connection of the PTT mic plug until the button is pressed. When the PTT is between the intercom and
the headset, the intercom function will not work unless the PTT switch is depressed. A simple modification can be performed to allow proper intercom operation. NOTE: This mod does not alter normal operation.
Below are some examples of typical modifications. Contact PS Engineering or the PTT manufacturer for
more details if necessary.
Procedures For David Clark PTT
Unscrew the round black plastic cover from the jack.
