MAINS POWER
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED
The PS 6379 may be connected to a 100 – 240 V
AC (50/60 Hz) mains power outlet with a clean
earth. The outlet has to be able to provide at least
200 watts. Avoid using mains outlets which also
power dimmer controlled lighting equipment.
Fuse for all voltages: T 1250
The wires in this mains lead are color coded in
accordance with the following code:
Green/yellow: safety ground
Blue:
neutral
Brown:
live
In case the colors of the wires in the mains lead do
not correspond with the markings identifying the
terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
o The wire that is colored green-and-yellow
must be connected to the terminal in the
plug, which is marked with the letter “E”, or
by the ground symbol, or is colored green.
o The wire that is colored blue must be
connected to the terminal that is marked
with the letter “N” or colored black.
o The wire that is colored brown must be
connected to the terminal that is marked
with the letter “L” or colored red.
The green-and-yellow wire of the mains cord must
always be connected to the electrical installation
safety earth or ground. This is essential for personal
safety as well as for proper operation of the PS
6379 and the other connected stations. This wire is
internally connected to all exposed metal surfaces.
Any rack framework into which this unit might be
mounted shall be connected to the same grounding
circuit.
The PS 6379 employs professionally designed
audio input and output circuits which do not require
the disconnection of any safety earth for the
avoidance of hum loops.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE PS 6379
The PS 6379 is designed to be a six channel
loudspeaker master unit in a full duplex ASL
Intercom system. It incorporates a program audio
input and two auxiliary audio inputs, a headset
connector, a loudspeaker and a gooseneck
microphone, a stage announce output and a direct
mic output. The unit may operate in various operation
modes (see section 12.0).
The built-in power supply supplies line power to a
maximum 60 Beltpacks or 30 Speaker Stations.
The PS 6379 RM model has, instead of a gooseneck
mic, a small built-in electret microphone.
Each channel has a Volume (listen level) control, a
Talk and Call button with LED indicators and a twostage side tone trimmer. A master volume controls
the total speaker/headset volume.
The unit is equipped with a limiter for the gooseneck
microphone, allowing the user to speak close into the
microphone without giving rise to overload and
distortion.
7.0
Loudspeaker attenuation is automatic when the
gooseneck microphone is active.
When a headset is connected, both gooseneck
microphone and speaker are switched off
automatically. The speaker can be then switch on
again with the Speaker on/off button.
As an option, a XLR-5 headset connector can be
fitted for binaural use of the headset. By setting
internally mounted jumpers, each of the 6 channels
can be assigned to either the left or the right headset
can, or to both headset cans.
An electronically balanced input allows volume
controlled monitoring of an external program (PGM)
audio signal. This signal does not appear on the
intercom lines.
The unique CALL system provides both a flashing
red LED and a very distinctive and characteristic
sound signal (buzzer). The volume of the buzzer can
be adjusted or muted with the “All buzzers on/off”
button.

FRONT PANEL CONTROLS & CONNECTOR
1 LISTEN LEVEL control knobs
These knobs preset the listen level for each
channel separately. Turning a knob fully counterclockwise switches off the referring channel. The
„Channel On‟ LED extinguishes. For receiving a
Call signal whilst the channel is switched off, see
section 11.0 and the dip switches in block B
2 TALK buttons
These buttons allow talking to each channel
separately or to some or all channels
simultaneously. When a TALK button is switched
on, its large green LED is lit.
By pushing and holding the TALK button of a socalled IFB channel or a Paging channel, the
TALK buttons of the Intercom channels switch
automatically off (for further explanation see
sections 12.1 and 12.2). To talk to an IFB or
Paging channel and additionally to a intercom
channel, one should also push and hold the TALK
button of that intercom channel. To achieve that
one can talk to an IFB or a Paging channel and
automatically to all intercom channels of which the
TALK buttons are enabled (the corresponding
Talk LEDs are lit), the position of certain dip
switches has to be changed. See section 11.0, dip
switch No 3 and No 4 in block A.
Momentary switching:
If a TALK button is pushed and held, the microphone
signal is sent to the referring intercom channel until
the button is released.
Latched switching:
If a TALK button is pushed shortly, it is electronically
latched and the microphone signal is sent to the
referring intercom channel. If pushed again, the
TALK button switches off. The latch function can be
disabled by changing the position of certain dip
switches (see section 11.0, the dip switches in block
D). The TALK button is then “momentary only”.
Mic Mute when latched on:
After on an intercom channel a so-called Mic Mute
signal has been received from a PRO Series
master station or power supply, the connection
between microphone and the referring intercom
channel is interrupted. By pushing the TALK
button, the connection is restored again.
3 CALL buttons
These buttons activate the call system, for each
channel separately. By a momentary push a
visual CALL signal is sent to all stations
connected to the referring intercom channel and
the call LEDs start flashing. By holding the CALL
buttons for 2 seconds the buzzer are activated,
provided there is no buzzer mute on that channel.
After the CALL button is released the LEDs
continue to flash for a further 2 seconds.
4 TALK TO ALL button
When this (momentary only) button is pushed and
held, one may talk to all intercom channels
simultaneously. The green TALK LEDs of all
channels light up (except for the Talk LEDs of the
IFB or PAGING channels ). To also include the
IFB and PAGING channels, the position of certain
dip switches have to be changed (see section
11.0, dip switch No 4 and No 5 in block A).
5 CALL TO ALL button
When this button is pushed shortly a visual Call
signal is sent to all channels simultaneously and
all Call LEDs of the PS 6379 and of all connected
stations start flashing. When holding the CALL TO
ALL button for 2 seconds the buzzer is activated,
should no buzzer mute be activated for that
channel. After the CALL TO ALL button is
released the LEDs continue to flash for further 2
seconds.
6 MASTER VOLUME knob
This knob adjusts the listen volume of the speaker
or headset. The position of jumpers (see #44)
determine whether the Master Volume knob also
controls the PGM (program audio) listen level.
PAGE 6
User Manual PS 6379 / May 2011 © ASL Intercom BV
7 STAGE ANNOUNCE button
This push button routes the microphone signal
directly to a line level output at the rear panel of the
unit. The microphone signal (the Announcement) is
not sent to the intercom channels. To include the
intercom channels the position of dip switch No 1 of
block A has to be changed (See section 11.0).
To achieve that the Aux signal (coming from AUX
Input #34) is routed to the Stage Announce output,
the position of dip switch dip switch No 4 in block F
has to be changed. See section 11.0
When pushing and holding the STAGE ANNOUNCE
button, the AUX volume is dimmed by a set
percentage (The AUX DIM FACTOR for Stage
Announce). For adjusting AUX level and dim factor
for Stage Announce, see section 10.4. and 10.5
8 SPEAKER ON/OFF button
With this button the loudspeaker can be switched on
or off. The LED in the button is lit when the speaker
is switched on. As soon as a headset is plugged in,
the speaker is automatically disabled (if it was
enabled before). By pushing the speaker on/off
button, the speaker is enabled again and the audio
can be heard over both the speaker and the headset.
When unplugging the headset, the speaker setting
(on or off) is as before the headset was plugged in.
9 SIDE TONE LEVEL trimmers
These trimmers (one for each channel) are for
minimizing the speaker feeding back into the
gooseneck microphone (unit feedback); they also
determine the level of your own voice as it is heard
over the speaker or headset.
10 SIDE TONE HI trimmers
These trimmers (one for each channel) have the
same functions as trimmer #9, but solely for the high
frequencies.
Adjustment procedure for all side tone trimmers, for
each channel separately:
o set trimmer in start position: fully clockwise.
o switch off the microphones of all connected
(speaker-) stations
o make sure that there is no automatic speaker
attenuation (turn trimmer #11 fully clockwise)
o push the TALK button of the channel of which
one wants to adjust the side tone
o slowly turn up the listen volume of the PS 6379
(channel- and master volume)
o speak into the gooseneck microphone
o adjust the speaker listen level to a minimum by
turning the side tone trimmers counterclockwise (first trimmer #9 and then trimmer
#10; repeat this a few times)
o Connect a headset to the PS 6379 (the
speaker and gooseneck mic are now
automatically disabled) and speak into the
headset microphone
o Check whether the level of your voice in the
headset can(s) is sufficient. If not, push up the
this listen level a bit by turning side tone
trimmer #9 clockwise.
The trimmer operating area is between fully clockwise and minimum level. Adjusting the side tone
does not affect the level of your voice as it is
heard by other stations.
11 SPEAKER ATTENUATOR trimmer
This trimmer adjusts the extent to which the
loudspeaker is automatically dimmed, when the
gooseneck microphone is switched on. It prevents
unit feedback if side tone rejection is not
sufficient.
It also minimizes system feedback or a 'hollow'
sound when the gooseneck microphones of other
speaker stations (on one or several of the
connected party lines) are switched on as well.
Adjustment procedure :
o make sure that there is no headset connected
o switch off all TALK buttons of the PS 6379.
o feed an audio signal to an intercom channel
(see #17 and #34‟)
o turn up the listen volume of the PS 6379
(selected channel- and master volume)
o activate the gooseneck microphone (push the
TALK button of the selected channel)
o adjust the desired degree of speaker
attenuation (turning the trimmer counterclockwise increases the attenuation)

User Manual PS 6379 / May 2011 © ASL Intercom BV
12 BUZZER VOLUME trimmer
This trimmer adjusts the volume of the internal
buzzer. The buzzer is activated if a CALL button of
the PS 6379 (or a CALL button of any other station
on the party lines to which the PS 6379 is
connected), for longer than 2 seconds, provided the
buzzer is not muted (see #21 and #26).
15 GOOSENECK microphone
This is an electret noise cancelling microphone.
A limiter prevents the mic pre-amp from clipping
when speaking close in the microphone. The
microphone is automatically disabled when a
headset is connected to the PS 6379. The mic gain
can be adjusted by trimmer #46.
13 PGM VOLUME
This knob adjusts the listen volume of the PGM input.
The signal of the PGM input can only be heard on
the speaker and/or headset of the PS 6379 and does
not appear on the intercom lines. To achieve that the
PGM signal is automatically dimmed to zero as soon
as a TALK button is pushed, the position of a dip
switch has to be changed (See section 11.0, dip
switch No 6 in block A). The position of jumpers #44
determine whether the program audio listen level is
also controlled by the Master Volume knob (#6).
16 LOUDSPEAKER
A high quality loudspeaker driven by a 2.9 Watt
amplifier. The speaker is automatically disabled as
soon as a headset is connected. It can be switched
on again by pushing Speaker On/Off switch #8.
14 HEADSET connector
To this XLR-4 connector of a headset can be
connected when private conversation is desired.
The headset must have a can impedance of
minimum 200 ohms. When the headset has to cans
in parallel , each can must have a impedance of
minimum 400 ohms. The headset microphone may
be of the dynamic or electret type. The gain for the
headset microphone can be adjusted by trimmer
#45.
Pin assignments :
1.

microphone are disabled automatically. The speaker
can be enabled again by pushing the SPEAKER
on/off button ( #8). The PS 6379 can optionally be
equipped with a XLR-5 headset connector for
binaural use. Internal jumpers determine - for each
channel separately - the routing of the audio to the
headset cans: either to the left can, or to the right can
or to both cans. (See #43 „Jumper Settings‟).
17 AUX buttons (one for each channel)
By pushing one of these AUX buttons, the auxiliary
signals (coming from AUX input connector #34) are
routed to the corresponding intercom channel. If an
IFB button (#27) is pushed, these AUX buttons are
for routing the auxiliary signals coming from IFB
(AUX) input connector #36 to the corresponding IFB
channel . The AUX buttons are also used when the
auxiliary signal levels have to be adjusted (see
section 10.1 and 10.2).
18 AUX LEVEL / DIM FACTOR knob
With this knob the auxiliary signal levels and the
various dim factors can be adjusted, see section 10.
The knob is also used to adjust the light intensity of
the LEDs in the Mic Mute, the Buzzer Mute, the Aux
and the IFB push buttons (see #22)
19 AUX LEVEL / DIM FACTOR LED bar
This LED Bar indicates the various Auxiliary signal
levels and dim factors ( see also section 10.0)
20 ALL MICS MUTE button
With this push button the TALK buttons of the
channels on the stations which are connected to the
intercom lines coming from the PS 6379, can be
remotely disabled (the microphone signal of these
stations is no longer sent to these party lines). On
each of these stations the disabled TALK buttons can
be enabled again by pushing them.
PAGE 8
User Manual PS 6379 / May 2011 © ASL Intercom BV
21 ALL BUZZERS MUTE button
With this button the buzzers of the connected
stations and of the PS 6379 can be muted.
The buzzers remain being muted until the ALL
BUZZER MUTE button is switched off again (the
buzzer mute status is abolished).
22 SET UP LOCK
The AUX levels, the IFB AUX levels and the setting
of the buzzer mutes can be locked by pushing a
small pin into the SETUP lock. It is unlocked by
pushing the lock again.
Adjusting the light intensity of the LEDs in the
Mic Mute-, Buzzer Mute-, Aux- and IFB buttons:
Push and hold the SETUP lock, turn the AUX LEVEL
/ DIM FACTOR knob (#18) clockwise to increase or
counter-clockwise to decrease the light intensity.
23 SYSTEM LINK LED (per channel)
This LED illuminates if a channel of another ASL
Intercom System has been connected to the
corresponding channel of the PS 6379, through its
“System Link” connector (see #32). The line
impedance is now provided by the other intercom
system and the internal line impedance for that
channel is switched off.
A Mic Mute signal sent from the other system is also
received by the user stations on the corresponding
channel of the PS 6379. To achieve that Mic Mute
signals sent from the other system are not received
by the user stations connected to the PS 6379, the
position of dipswitch no 1 in dipswitch block E has to
be changed (see section 11.0). A Mic Mute signal
sent from the PS 6379 is always only received by its
own user stations (it does not mute the microphones
of the user stations of the other system)
Buzzer Mute signals are not going from the other
Intercom system to the PS 6379, nor in the opposite
direction.
24 ON/OVERLOAD LEDs (per channel)
These LEDs indicate the status of each channel.
A LED is lit green when 30 V DC line power is
supplied to the corresponding channel and flashes
red when that channel is reaching an overload.
In this case that channel is still functioning but will
shut off as soon as more units are added.
The LED is constantly lit red when too many units
have been connected to the corresponding channel
or if there is a short circuit on that channel. When all
LEDs are lit red and one or more channels are
switched off (see #1) a master overload occurred.
In this case the channel with the lowest load switches
off. If that is not sufficient the next channel switches
off - and so on. The circuit-breaker resets
automatically 3 seconds after the cause of the
overload has been removed and restores line power
automatically. The LED also lights up red - for a few
seconds - every time mains power is switched on.
25 MIC MUTE button (per channel)
With this push button the TALK button on stations of
which the corresponding channel is connected to the
corresponding intercom line (party line) coming from
the PS 6379, can be remotely disabled (the
microphone signal of these stations is no longer sent
to that party line). On each of these stations the
disabled TALK button can be enabled again by
pushing it.
26 BUZZER MUTE button (per channel)
With these push buttons the buzzers of all stations
connected to that channel can be muted. The
buzzers remain being muted until the BUZZER
MUTE button is switched off again (the buzzer Mute
status is abolished).
27 IFB button (per channel)
With these push button a channel can be put into IFB
Mode. The channel is now a so-called IFB channel,
used for one way communication from i.e. a
director/producer to a talent in a broadcast
environment. After having pushed an IFB button the
AUX button (#17) of the corresponding channel
automatically lights up indicating that the signal
coming from IFB auxiliary input #36 is routed to that
IFB channel. If no IFB-Auxiliary signal is needed,
push the AUX button to switch off. For IFB channel
properties and applications, see section 12.1.

10.0 ADJUSTING AUX LEVELS & DIM FACTORS
10.1 AUX LEVEL
When the AUX button (#17) of a channel is pushed,
the auxiliary audio signal (coming from AUX input
#34) is sent to that channel. To adjust the level of
the AUX signal to that channel proceed as follows:
Push and hold the AUX button of the referring
channel until the LED in the AUX button starts
flashing. The LED bar (#19) shows the present AUX
level, which now can be adjusted by turning the AUX
LEVEL / DIM FACTOR knob (#18). The LED bar
shows the new AUX level which can be stored by
shortly pushing the AUX LEVEL / DIM FACTOR knob
or by pushing the AUX button after which this button
is not flashing any longer. Also if the channel is made
a Paging channel (see section 12.2) the AUX signal
is sent to that channel and the AUX level is adjusted
as described above.
10.2 IFB AUX LEVEL
Pushing the IFB button (#27) of a channel makes
that channel a so-called IFB channel. After an IFB
button is pushed, the AUX button of the
corresponding channel automatically lights up
indicating that the signal coming from IFB Auxiliary
input #36 is routed to that IFB channel. If an IFB AUX
to that that channel is not required, push the
corresponding AUX button to switch off. See also
section 12.1.
To adjust the level of the IFB AUX signal to an IFB
channel proceed as follows: Push and hold the AUX
button of the referring IFB channel until the LED in
the button starts flashing. The LED bar (#19) shows
the present IFB AUX level, which now can be
adjusted by turning the AUX LEVEL / DIM FACTOR
knob (#18). The LED bar shows the new IFB AUX
level which can be stored by shortly pushing the AUX
LEVEL / DIM FACTOR knob or by pushing the AUX
button after which this button is not flashing any

10.3 IFB DIM FACTOR
To adjust the extent to which the IFB auxiliary signal
is dimmed (setting the “IFB Dim Factor”) when the
TALK button of an IFB channel is pushed, proceed
as follows: Push and hold the IFB button (#27) of the
referring channel until the LED in the button starts
flashing. The LED bar (#19) shows the present IFB
Dim Factor (when the bar has the maximum width,
the dim factor is 0% (= no dimming); when the bar
has a width of for instance 25% of the maximum
width, the dim factor is 75%). The dim factor can now
be adjusted by turning the AUX LEVEL / DIM
FACTOR knob (#18). The LED bar shows the new
dim factor, which can be stored by shortly pushing
the AUX LEVEL knob or by pushing the IFB button
after which this button is not flashing any longer. The
factory setting is such that the IFB AUX volume is
reduced by 50% when pushing the TALK button of
an IFB channel.
10.4 AUX LEVEL for Stage Announce
By changing the position of dip switch No 4 in dip
switch block F (see section 11.0) the auxiliary signal
coming from AUX input # 34 is also sent to the
Stage Announce output. To adjust the level of the
AUX signal to the Stage Announce output proceed
as follows: Push the STAGE ANNOUNCE button,
release it and – within 1 second - push it again and
hold it. LED bar (#19) shows the present AUX for
Stage Announce level, which now can be adjusted by
turning the AUX LEVEL / DIM FACTOR knob (#18).
The LED bar shows the new level which can be
stored by shortly pushing the AUX LEVEL / DIM
FACTOR knob.
10.5 AUX DIM FACTOR for Stage Announce
To adjust the extent to which the AUX signal is
dimmed when the STAGE ANNOUNCE button is

shows the present AUX Dim Factor for Stage
Announce (when the bar has the maximum width, the
dim factor is 0% (no dimming); when the bar has a
width of for instance 25% of the maximum width, the
dim factor is 75%). The dim factor can now be
adjusted by turning the AUX LEVEL / DIM FACTOR
knob (#18). The LED bar shows the new dim factor,
which can be stored by shortly pushing the AUX
LEVEL / DIM FACTOR knob. The factory setting is
such that the AUX volume is reduced by 50% when
pushing the STAGE ANNOUNCE button.
10.6 PAGING DIM FACTOR
Changing the position of one of the dip switches of
dip switch block C (see section 11.0) makes the
corresponding channel a so-called Paging channel
(see section 12.2 for properties and application of a
Paging channel). To adjust the extent to which the
AUX signal is dimmed when the TALK button of a
Paging channel is pushed, proceed as follows: Push
and hold the TALK button. The LED bar (#19) shows
the present Paging Dim Factor (when the bar has the
maximum width, the dim factor is 0% (no dimming);
when the bar has a width of for instance 25% of the
maximum width, the dim factor is 75%). The dim
factor can now be adjusted by turning the AUX
LEVEL / DIM FACTOR knob (#18). The LED bar
shows the new dim factor, which can be stored by
shortly pushing the AUX LEVEL / DIM FACTOR
knob. The factory setting is such that the AUX
volume is reduced by 50% when pushing the TALK

12.0
MODES
12.1 IFB mode
By pushing one of the IFB buttons #27, the
corresponding channel is put into IFB Mode. The
channel is now a so-called IFB channel, used for one
way communication from i.e. a director/producer to a
talent in a broadcast environment: If the director
pushes the TALK button of an IFB channel, the talent
hears the producer but may also listen to an (IFB)
auxiliary signal. The talent has a headphone or an
earpiece, connected to an so-called IFB receiver (1
channel / listen only) or a standard 1-channel ASL
beltpack.
AUX signals:
If an IFB button is pushed the AUX button (#17) of
the corresponding channel switches on automatically
and the signal coming from the IFB auxiliary input
(#36) is routed to that channel. If no IFB-Auxiliary
signal is needed, switch off the AUX button of that
channel. To achieve that the signal coming from
AUX-input #34 is routed to an IFB channel the
position of certain dip switches have to be changed.
See section 11.0, the dip switches of block E. This
feature allows the AUX signal coming from AUX input
#36 is routed to certain IFB channels, whilst the AUX
signal coming from AUX input #34 is routed to certain
other IFB channels.
TALK buttons and IFB Dim Factor:
The TALK button of an IFB channel is momentary
only and must be kept pushed while talking. Whilst
the TALK button is pushed the level of the (IFB) AUX
signal on that channel is dimmed automatically by
50%. This is the so-called IFB Dim Factor which can
be adjusted (see section 10.3). For as long as the
TALK button of an IFB channel is kept pushed, the
TALK buttons of the intercom channels are switched
off automatically. To achieve that the TALK buttons
of the intercom channels remain to be switched on,
the position of a dip switch has to be changed (See
section 11.0, dip switch No 3 of block A)
Mic Mute & Buzzer Mute:
Both the Mic Mute button (#25) and the Buzzer Mute
button (# 26) of an IFB channel are disabled. The
LEDs in these buttons are not lit. Pushing the ALL
MIC MUTE button or the ALL BUZZER MUTE button
has no effect on a channel which is in IFB mode.
WARNING:
An IFB channel should NOT BE LINKED to another
intercom system via its SYSTEM LINK connector
12.2 PAGING mode
By changing the position of one of the dip switches of
block C (see section 11.0), the corresponding
channel can be put in Paging Mode. The channel is
now a so-called Paging Channel, used for one way
communication to dressing rooms etc. , where socalled Paging receivers are installed.
A Paging receiver is a dedicated 1-channel speaker
station with a volume control and override circuitry,
however without gooseneck microphone and without
headset connector and without a (buzzer) Call
function. Such a receiver is to be connected to a
Paging channel of the PS 6379 via standard
microphone cable.
AUX signal:
To a Paging channel an auxiliary signal can be
routed (e.g. the show relay signal) coming from AUX
input #34. For information on how to adjust the AUX
volume, see section10.1.
TALK buttons & Paging Dim factor:
The TALK button of a Paging channel is momentary
only and must be kept pushed while talking. Whilst
the TALK button is pushed the level of the AUX
signal on that channel is dimmed automatically by
50%. This is the so-called Paging Dim Factor which
can be adjusted (see section 10.6). For as long as
the TALK button of an IFB channel is kept pushed,
the TALK buttons of the intercom channels are
switched off automatically. To achieve that the TALK
buttons of the intercom channels remain to be
switched on, the position of a dip switch has to be
changed (See section 11, dip switch No 2 of block A)
Triggering the override circuitry in Paging receivers:
By pushing the TALK button of a Paging channel, a
DC signal (same as a Call signal) is put on the line to
the Paging receivers. This DC signal triggers the
override circuit in a Paging receiver, by which the
listen volume is brought to a preset level (the
override level) irrespective how the volume was set
by the listeners in the room. The override level is set
at the Paging receiver itself.
Mic Mute:
The Mic Mute button (#25) of a Paging channel is
automatically disabled (the corresponding Mic Mute
button is not lit). Pushing the ALL MIC MUTE button
has no effect on a channel which is in Paging mode.
Buzzer Mute:
On a Paging channel there is a permanent Buzzer
Mute signal. The corresponding Buzzer Mute button
#26 is lit. The permanent “Buzzer Mute Status” is not
for Paging receivers (they do not have a Call
function), but is for situations where one wants to
connect an intercom station to a Paging channel. The
buzzer of such an intercom station is disabled, but
the Call LED of the station is lit for as long as the
TALK button of a Paging channel is pushed. If this is
considered to be inconvenient, do not connect
intercom stations
WARNING::
A Paging channel should NOT BE LINKED to
another intercom system via its SYSTEM LINK
connector

13.0 PARTY LINE, TECHNICAL CONCEPT
User stations in an ASL intercom system are
connected via one or several 'party lines'. A party
line offers two way („full duplex‟) communication and
consists of standard microphone (multi-pair) cable.
One wire is used as an audio line, one as a power
line and the screen of the cable functions as
earth/return. Current drive is used for signal transfer.
Each station utilizes a current amplifier to amplify
the microphone signal and place it on the common
audio line where, due to the constant line
impedance (situated in the power supply between
XLR pin 3 and 1), a signal voltage is developed
which can be further amplified and sent to the
headphones or loudspeakers.
14.0
This principle has three advantages:
the use of a single audio line allows several
stations to talk and listen simultaneously
due to the high bridging impedance offered
by each station, the number of stations on
the party line has no influence on the level
of the communications signal
power and audio to the intercom stations
use the same cable
The Call signal is also sent as a current on the audio
line. It develops a DC potential over the line
impedance which will be sensed by each station and
interpreted as a Call signal.
CABLING
The intercom lines (the „party lines‟) are of the shielded two-conductor microphone cable type. The intercom line
connectors are of the XLR-3 type. Audio and Call signals are on XLR pin 3, DC power is on XLR pin 2.
XLR pin 1 is connected to the shield of the cable which functions as the common return for audio and power.
The audio signal is transferred in an unbalanced way (see „Party Line, Technical Concept‟). To avoid earth loops
(hum), the possible effect of electromagnetic fields and to minimize power loss, certain rules have to be obeyed
when installing the cabling of an intercom system :
Use high quality cable
Use high quality microphone cable (shielded two
conductor cable, minimum 2x 0.30 mm2).
In case multi-pair microphone cable is used, it
should be of high quality and each pair should
consist of two conductors (minimum 2x 0.15 mm2)
with separate shield and an overall shield.
Keep cables parallel as much as possible
When two (multi channel) units in a network are
connected by more than one cable, make sure that
these cables are parallel to each other over the
whole distance between those units. When using
multi-pair cable, parallelism is ensured in the best
possible way.
Use flexible cable
Use flexible single and multi-pair microphone cable
instead of cable with solid cores, especially when
the cable is subjected to bending during operation or
installation.
Avoid closed loops
Always avoid that intercom cables are making a
closed loop. So-called 'ring intercom' should not
physically be cabled as a ring..
Cable screens to XLR pin 1
The screen of each separate microphone cable
and/or the screen of each single pair in a multi-pair
cable, should be connected to pin 1 of each XLR-3
connector. Do not connect these screens to the
metal housing of ASL units or XLR-3 wall boxes.
See section „Earthing Concept‟.
Connect metal cable trunks, wall boxes and
overall multi-pair cable screens to clean earth
Metal cable trunks, metal wall boxes and overall
multi-pair cable screens should be interconnected
and, at the 'central earth point' in the intercom
network only, be connected to a clean earth or a
safety earth. (see section „Earthing Concept‟).
Keep metal connection boxes and cable trunks
or pipes isolated from other metal parts
Metal trunks or pipes for intercom cables and metal
connection boxes should be mounted in such a way
that they are isolated from any other metal housing
or construction part.
Keep cables away from electromagnetic sources
Keep intercom cables away from high energy
cables, e.g. 115/230/400V mains power or dimmer
controlled feeds for spotlights. Intercom cables
should cross high energy cables at an angle of 90º
only. Intercom cables should never be in the same
trunks as energy cables.
Place power supply in a central position
In case of a system powered by a separate power
supply: In order to diminish power losses, place the
power supply as close as possible to where most
power consumption occurs, in other words most
user stations are placed.
ASL powered units to a 'clean' mains outlet
Master stations or power supplies should be
connected to a mains outlet with a clean earth.
Other audio equipment may be connected to this
mains outlet, but avoid using an outlet which also
powers dimmer controlled lighting systems.
