operation.
• Be sure to follow all the precautionary instructions in this section, which contain important warnings and/or
cautions regarding safety.
• After reading, keep this manual handy for future reference.
Safety Symbol and Message Conventions
Safety symbols and messages described below are used in this manual to prevent bodily injury and property
damage which could result from mishandling. Before operating your product, read this manual first and
understand the safety symbols and messages so you are thoroughly aware of the potential safety hazards.
WARNING
CAUTION
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which,
if mishandled, could result in death or serious
personal injury.
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which,
if mishandled, could result in moderate or minor
personal injury, and/or property damage.
• Do not expose the unit to rain or an environment
where it may be splashed by water or other liquids,
as doing so may result in fire or electric shock.
• Never plug in nor remove the power supply plug
with wet hands, as doing so may cause electric
shock.
• Use the unit only with the voltage specified on the
unit. Using a voltage higher than that which is
specified may result in fire or electric shock.
• When unplugging the power supply cord, be sure
to grasp the power supply plug; never pull on the
cord itself. Operating the unit with a damaged
power supply cord may cause a fire or electric
shock.
• Do not cut, kink, otherwise damage nor modify the
power supply cord. In addition, avoid using the
power cord in close proximity to heaters, and never
place heavy objects -- including the unit itself -- on
the power cord, as doing so may result in fire or
electric shock.
• Avoid installing or mounting the unit in unstable
locations, such as on a rickety table or a slanted
surface. Doing so may result in the unit falling down
and causing personal injury and/or property damage.
• Should the following irregularity be found during
use, immediately switch off the power, disconnect
the power supply plug from the AC outlet and
contact your nearest TOA dealer. Make no further
attempt to operate the unit in this condition as this

7.1. Recording (REC)
Messages are recorded on the internal flash memory. Up to 4 messages can be recorded, totaling
approximately 6 minutes. Because the recording circuitry features automatic gain control (AGC) function, the
recording level does not need to be adjusted. When the Mode Selector switch is set to the REC position, the
input terminal signal is directed to only the Headphone terminal and Speaker Output terminal, and is not sent
to the Line Output terminal.
Note that the input signal to the Speaker Output terminal is cut when headphones are connected.
MODE
Step 1. Set the Mode Selector switch to the REC position.
Step 2. Set the Input Level Selector switch to the appropriate position for the type of
equipment connected to the Input terminal.
Set to MIC (right side) when a microphone is connected, and to LINE (left side)
when other equipment is connected.

(The indicator begins to flash 1 second after the key is pressed. It changes to steady ON 2 seconds
after flashing begins.)
Step 5. To stop the recording, press the corresponding Start/Stop key again.
Tips
• The Start/Stop indicator begins flashing when only 5 seconds of recording time remain, and continues until
recording is complete.
• Recording over a previously recorded message number automatically deletes the previous recording,
without requiring deletion by changing the Mode Selector switch position.
• Recording cannot be performed from the rear-mounted Line Input terminal.
• Sample chime tones contained in the supplied CD-ROM can be transferred to the EV-20R for use. It is also
possible to back up the messages using the data transfer software program contained in the supplied
CD-ROM. For details, please read the "EV20 Software Instruction Manual.pdf" file located on the CD-ROM.

• Use the appropriate type of screwdriver for the connector wiring screws.
• When using stranded or shielded cable, do not solder the stripped and exposed ends.
When the cable is clamped, the solder becomes crushed, increasing contact resistance and possibly
resulting in an extreme rise in cable joint temperature.

9.2.3. Cable connections
Step 1. Loosen the terminal screw to insert the cable
into the connector, then retighten the screw.
Note
Tug lightly on the cable to be sure that it does
not pull free. If the cable pulls free, loosen the
terminal screw again and reconnect from the
beginning.
Step 2. Insert the connector into the rear-mounted
socket.
Step 3. Tighten the fixing screw.
Note
Take care not to reverse Steps 1 and 2.
When tightening the terminal screw, force is applied to
the connector pins on the internal circuit board,
possibly resulting in poor contact.

10. BROADCAST DELAY TIME AND BUSY OUTPUT ON/OFF SETTINGS
The delay time between message activation and the actual start of playback can be set to 0, 2, or 4 seconds
with the unit's rear-mounted Delay Time Setting switch. When repeat broadcast mode is selected by the
Playback Interval Setting switch, the busy output during the time intervals (except for "0 s" and "∞" settings)
can be set to "Make" (ON) or "Break" (OFF).
(Factory-preset to "0" seconds , and the busy output during intervals between repeated broadcasts to "ON".)
Should the beginning of playback contents be lost due to operational delays experienced by connected
external equipment, set the delay time to 2 or 4 seconds.
Note: If the delay time is set to 2 or 4 seconds, the Busy Output terminal is closed during the delay as well.

11. PLAYBACK INTERVAL SETTINGS
The time interval between repeated message announcements can be set with the Playback Interval Setting
switch on the rear panel.
The repeat interval represents the time between the end of the previous message and the start of the next
message. Set delay times are not added to the repeat interval.
Set the indentation on the switch axis (marked in black in the figure at right) to the
desired timer interval.
Note: ‌The switch is factory-preset to the "∞" position (announcement repetition
disabled).

Setting Contents
No repeat announcements are broadcast.
However, even when "∞" is selected, if the Start Input terminal is
continuously closed, the same announcement is continuously
broadcast with no interval. Also, opening the input terminal while a
broadcast is in progress causes the message to stop immediately
after the current playback ends.
0s
Continuous broadcasts with no pause.

Broadcasts are repeated after each 5-second pause.
10 s
Broadcasts are repeated after each 10-second pause.
30 s
Broadcasts are repeated after each 30-second pause.
1m
Broadcasts are repeated after each 1-minute pause.

Broadcasts are repeated after each 5-minute pause.
10 m
Broadcasts are repeated after each 10-minute pause.
30 m
Broadcasts are repeated after each 30-minute pause.

Broadcasts are repeated after each 1-hour pause.
Notes
• The Start/Stop indicator flashes until the next message broadcast begins following the end of the previous
message broadcast.
• To stop repeat broadcast while in progress, either press the Start/Stop key of the message number being
broadcast or close the Stop Input terminal.

[Operation]
•Pressing the Start/Stop key or closing the Start Input terminal closes the Busy Output terminal and plays
back the message after the set delay time elapses.
•When playback ends, the same playback starts again after the time interval between repeat broadcasts
elapses. (Refer to p. 14.)
Since then, this operation repeats.
•To interrupt the repeat broadcast, press the in-use message number or close the corresponding Stop Input
terminals.
•The busy output during repeat intervals can be set to ON (Make) or OFF (Break) with the Delay Time Setting
switch. (Refer to p. 13.)
Depending on the busy output ON/OFF settings, operation differs as follows:
Setting the busy output to ON: No broadcast can be made during the repeat intervals.
Setting the busy output to OFF:Permits broadcasts using the front-mounted Input terminal (INPUT/REC IN)
and rear-mounted Line Input terminal (LINE IN) during the repeat intervals.

[Operation]
• When two or more Start Input terminals are simultaneously closed, the message with the lower message
number is played back, making other messages invalid.
• Closing another Start Input terminal during playback causes the current playback to stop, allowing the
message activated later to be played back without the delay time.
• Even if the same Start Input terminal is closed during playback, the playback is not repeated.
• Closing another Start input terminal while a Start input terminal is continuously closed allows the message
activated later to be played back.
