SECTION 1 – Overview
Device Identification Codes
The PCC-550M PC Master displays Identification Codes that are used to represent Devices.
Devices are attached Intercom Slaves or Accessories that make up the JACQUES Intercom System,
and are individually controlled by the Master.
Every JACQUES Device has to be registered within the operating software by means of Identification
Codes. These codes are critical for correct Device identification and operation within the Jacques
intercom system and consist of three different individual codes:
1/ Tag, ranging from 1 to 8191
A Tag can be described as one of the software address identifier codes, to the rest of the system.
The Tag is stored inside the EEPROM memory chip, located on the actual Pro Slave PCB or inside the
Concentrator unit (when using Concentrator Slaves). Tags can be displayed on the Idle screen, within
the Selection by: Tag window. (see next page, FIGURE 2).
Tags are NOT changeable by the Operator and can only be changed by a Technician from the Setup
menu. (see separate Jacques Electronics Technical Operating Manual)
Jacques Electronics determines the Tag number for the Cell Slaves and PA Amplifiers.
The third-party Security Management System manufacturers (if used) are normally responsible for
determining the Tag for the Gate and Door Slaves.
Examples of a Tags are:
223
6888
2/ Descriptor, of up to 25 characters long
A Descriptor is another software address identifier code, used to identify the Slave location. EG:
Front Gate.
The Descriptor is stored inside the EEPROM memory chip, located on the actual Pro Slave PCB or
inside the Concentrator unit (when using Concentrator Slaves). It can be displayed on the Idle screen,
in the Selection by: Descriptor window. (see next page, FIGURE 2).
Descriptors are NOT changeable by the Operator and can only be changed by a Technician from the
Setup menu. (see separate Jacques Electronics Technical Operating Manual)
Examples of Descriptors are:
Front Gate
R2-B CELL 1
3/ Name, of up to 25 characters long
The Name is used to logically and easily identify a particular Slave. EG: Fred Jones
Names are stored inside the PC’s internal registry, not the EEPROM memory chip.
They can be displayed on the Idle screen, within the Selection by: Name window (see next page,
FIGURE 2). Unlike the Tag or Descriptors, the Device Name CAN be changed, or updated, by the
Operator. (see: PAGE 26)
Examples of Names are:
Fred Jones

SECTION 3 – Answer Functions
Priority Importance
All Devices have a Priority Importance number attached to them. This is provided to create an
answering order during multiple incoming calls.
The highest priorities of importance are other Master units. If there is a Master unit calling with other
Slaves, then that Master will always come up to be answered first, (located at the top of the queue).
Second levels of importance are the Gate and Door Slaves, followed lastly with the Cell Slaves.
When there are more than one incoming call present, the calls are then automatically listed in order of
Priority Importance.
The priority number is recommended to be changed by a Technician from the Setup menu (see
separate Jacques Electronics Technical Operating Manual), but can also be changed by the Operator
(see: VIEW – Edit Cell Slaves – Priority, PAGE 26).
About Third-party Security Management Systems Software
Jacques Electronics intercom systems can be easily interfaced and used with other (third party)
Security Management System Software.
When they are used together and a Gate or Door Slave is calling, then that call can ONLY be
answered from the other security system software.
Once the call has been connected from this application, the JACQUES PC Master can then also speak
and listen to the connected Gate or Door Slave.
Refer to the manufacturers own software operation manual, for details.

SECTION 5 – Volume Controls
The Volume control
The Volume control is a software fader control, used to adjust the volume level of the Monitoring
Speaker. The Monitoring Speaker is an external speaker, normally located close to the PC Master in
front of the PC Master Operator.
The Volume control is used to adjust listening levels of the following:
• Incoming Calls
• Monitoring Function
• Auxiliary Audio Channels
The Volume and Auxiliary channel (Radio Selected) window (FIGURE 23), is always present in
the top right-hand corner of the screen.
FIGURE 23:
The Volume and Radio
Selected control window
Adjusting the Volume control
To adjust the volume, position the mouse-pointer on the Volume pointer knob (FIGURE 24) and
click and hold down the left mouse button.
FIGURE 24: The Volume slider control
The slider lever can now be easily moved across the screen to increase the sound (move it to the right),
or decrease the sound (move it to the left).
Changing Volume on Incoming calls
During an incoming Call, the Volume control can be changed to adjust the level of incoming speech
from a calling Slave. This changes the volume level of the Operators’ Monitoring speaker.
This JACQUES Version 4.28 software has a function automatically built-in, which saves the
individual volume level for each individual Slave, within the internal database of the PC.
This compensates for the different microphone sensitivities and gains in each Slave, so as to not
having to adjust the volume level when they are active.
This is not an AGC function; it simply stores the volume-preset level of that Slave.
The CH1, CH2 and OFF function boxes will grey-out during incoming calls. This indicates that they
cannot be adjusted during this time.

This has now de-activated the Remote function, re-enabling the Master Unit for local operation.
The screen returns to the Idle screen (FIGURE 2, PAGE 9). All incoming Calls will now come
through that Master Unit, as normal operation.
About Remote Switching
Remote Switching is a feature found in the JACQUES PCC-550M Master Stations. It allows other
Masters to control its operation, when in Remote Switching mode.
For Example: When Remote Switching is enabled on a particular Master, local Operators cannot be
used to control its operations. Other Higher-Level Masters now have control of its operations.
When a JACQUES Master Unit is first switched on, it automatically enables itself to operate in
Remote mode (Remote Activated).
If the PC Master locks up, or if there are any other faults with that PC unit, then as a safety feature,
that Master Unit automatically goes into Remote Activated mode.
The Highest-Level Master station cannot be Remoted, as there are NO Master Units above it.
The Highest-Level Master is permanently in the Remote de-activated mode.
OPTIONS – Activate Gate Slaves
The Options – Activate Gate Slaves menu option allows the Operator to communicate to the Gate and
Door Slaves, allowing them to be operated in much the same way as other JACQUES Slaves are
described in this manual.
When selected, the title Activate Gate Slaves will now change to Deactivate Gate Slaves.
Whenever a Gate or Door Slave calls the JACQUES PCC-550M Master, the call is displayed in the
Selection by: … window, just as if a normal Cell Slave would appear.
That Gate or Door Slave can now be answered from the PC Master, as if it were a normal Cell Slave –
rather only answered from the third party Security Management System.
To disable this function, return to Options menu and select Deactivate Gate Slaves.
About Security Management Systems (SMS) software
JACQUES Electronics Intercom Systems can be easily interfaced and used with other (third party)
Security Management System software.
When they are used together and a Gate or Door Slave is calling, then that call can ONLY be
answered from the other security system software.
However, the Activate Gate Slaves option will, when selected, enable the Operator to answer the
Gate and Door Slaves from the JACQUES PC Master unit, just like a normal Cell Slave.
