CHAPTER 1
Introduction
General Description
A single TBX-Tribus fiber card can link up to four (4) ADAM/ADAM-M frames; while multiple Tribus cards can link up to
eight (8) frames. This makes it possible to increase the number of available users on a system by transparently integrating
additional frames. The ADAM/ADAM-M frame must be equipped with an MCII-e Master Controller card (version 2.0.4 or
later), allowing the TBX-Tribus to link together multiple frames, thereby allowing users to quickly connect multiple
ADAM/ADAM-M intercom systems. This functionality can be useful in mobile production scenarios to tie systems together
via fiber using the digital audio of the TBX-Tribus. In this scenario, the MCII-e Master Controllers are tied together via
Ethernet connections. In a failure of the Ethernet connection of one (1) frame, the affected ADAM/ADAM-M can be
automatically isolated as an autonomous frame, and the remaining frames function as a normal interconnected system. The
TBX-Tribus works in both AIO-8 and AIO-16 frame environments with simple software settings in AZedit intercom software.
The TBX-Tribus card comes with a fiber connection only, allowing a range of up to 24.8 miles (40km) between
ADAM/ADAM-M frames. The TBX-Tribus surpasses the DBX (Dual Bus Expansion) card with its superior channel
capability, transmitting 256 channels of audio, rather than the 128 channels supported by DBX.
Version Requirements
•
•
IMPORTANT:
MCII-e version 2.0.4 or later
AZedit version 3.6.1 or later
When updating a system from DBX to TBX, the PC II-e must have the firmware changed to that of the
MCII-e before the TBX cards are inserted into the frame.

10 Introduction
TBX Tribus Technical Manual
Features
Interface
with ADAM/
ADAM-M
The TBX-Tribus card is backward compatible with all existing AES, AIO, and RVON cards in an
ADAM/ADAM-M intercom system. The hardware and software is compatible to work seamlessly with
the TDMa (Time Division Multiplexing) and control bus circuitry for routing audio and controlling data.
This card provides a downloadable firmware feature through AZedit Intercom Software.
Channels
Per Link
The TBX-Tribus has three (3) fiber links. Each link can support up to a maximum of 256 audio channels
per link. This channel capability is provided in AIO-16 systems. Moreover, the link can also be scaled
down to 128 channels, allowing it to support AIO-8 based intercom systems.
New System
Architecture
The System Framework has been redefined for the TBX-Tribus allowing the system to reconfigure itself
in the event of a frame failure. In the scenario where the master frame fails, another ADAM/ADAM-M
frame within the system seizes control until the fault is fixed. This fail-save mechanism monitors both
audio and control, and sends messages to report any corrupt behavior in the system.
NOTE:
DBX cards are not compatible with TBX-Tribus cards.
Support for
Multiple
Distances
The backcard features three (3) SFP (Small Form-Factor Pluggable) connectors that allow for support of
multiple distances. This allows the user to configure these cards based on their custom application. The
user can insert COTS (Commercial Off-The-Shelf) modules (Multi Mode/Single Mode) to match their
needs.
System
Expansion
The TBX-Tribus employs the next generation ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) Nucleus
for higher performance and future system expansion. See Table 1 on page 14.
Autonomous
Mode
Normally, a TBX-Tribus frame communicates with other frames that are part of the same intercom.
However, if an Ethernet link is not present, the Tribus automatically enters Autonomous mode.
AZedit also has a new option on the Intercom Configuration Options window (Options|Intercom
Configuration|Options Tab) called “Force Autonomous Mode when no audio links up.” The Force
Autonomous Mode check box is used to force the current frame into autonomous (independent) mode,
if none of its Tribus links are up. Normally, a frame communicates with other frames that are part of the
same intercom. If selected, the frame refuses to communicate with any other frames if none of its Tribus
links are up, even if Ethernet communications are fine. And, once one (1) or more of its audio links are
restored, the frame automatically tries to re-establish messaging links to the other frames in the cluster.
Automatic
Transfer of
Control
Within each frame, both the active and the standby MCII-e master controllers maintain Ethernet
messaging links with every other frame in the cluster. If the Active controller in the frame loses its
messaging links, but the standby controller has one (1) or more Ethernet links available, an automatic
transfer of control is performed. When this transfer occurs, the standby controller becomes the active
controller and the previously active controller becomes the standby controller when its messaging links
are restored.
Alarms and
Warnings
A new view in AZedit displays various alarms and warnings occur in the intercom. Once an alarm has
been resolved, it is deleted after five (5) minutes.
AZedit
Connections
AZedit Connections (Options|Connect to Frame) allow the user to select the frame AZedit should
connect to.
AZedit version 3.6.1 or higher is required.

In Use Tally
Indicator
When a user turns a talk or listen key on to connect with a resource in another frame within the cluster,
the key displays a busy tally, flashing between the Alpha and **, to indicate the resource is unavailable.
NOTE:
Logging
a.
Introduction 11
For special lists and party lines, no unavailable tally is generated if there are any members
of the special list or party line in accessible frames.
Each frame in an intercom cluster generates its own log message and stores them locally. Normally, the
log messages are identical from frame to frame, except when frames are synchronizing. Using the
logging configuration window, you can select whether changes affect all frames in a cluster or just the
locally connected frame.
TDM is a technology that transmits multiple signals simultaneously over a single transmission path.

Introduction 15
Fail-Over Modes
Unlike the DBX card, audio and communications (called control1) between frames is separated between the TBX-Tribus card
and the MCII-e Master Controller Card. Communication between frames using TBX-Tribus occurs using the MCII-e Master
Controller over Ethernet. Audio is passed between frames using the TBX-Tribus card fiber connection (see Figure 31 to
Figure 33).
Audio between frames exists as long as there is a single valid link between frames. There are three (3) types of system
configurations:
•
•
•
Full Redundancy
Partial Redundancy
Non-Redundancy

16 Introduction
TBX Tribus Technical Manual
Full Redundancy
In Full Redundancy systems, there are two (2) links, shown in Figure 31, between each frame, so losing either one does not
affect audio.

Introduction 17
Partial Redundancy
In a Partially Redundant system, multiple frames, but not all frames, have two (2) links configured between them. In the
example shown in Figure 32, Frame 1 and Frame 2 have full redundancy between them; however, Frame 3 has only one (1)
link to Frame 1. This means if the fiber connection between Frame 1 and Frame 3 is broken, Frame 3 cannot send or receive
audio.

Non-Redundancy
In a Non-Redundant system, shown in Figure 33, there is only one (1) link between frames, so if the fiber link goes down,
audio communications between the frames is lost.

Debug Information
The Debug Information menu item, shown in Figure 5, allows you to send a flash file to RTS to help troubleshoot the reason
for an intercom issue in AZedit. In the event of a processor crash, the processor saves diagnostic information about the cause
of the problem to its flash memory. The menu item stays grayed-out until a flash file is created when the processor crashes.
NOTE:
FIGURE 5.
Every card in every frame stores its own debug information. So, if frame 3 has a processor crash, you must
connect AZedit to frame three (3) to create an .azd file to send to RTS for debugging.

name – 12152008.azd.
3.
Click Save.
The Uploading Debug Information Status window appears.
NOTE:
4.
Select the Delete debug information from intercom check box if you want to delete the debug information
from system once the .azd file is created. Otherwise, the information is kept on the intercom system.
Remember, you can only save the most current debug information. This means if your processor fails
twice you only capture the second failure’s diagnostic information.
Click OK.
The AZedit debug file is made.

Base 8 vs. Base 16 Port Number Systems
With the advent of the TBX-Tribus card and the ever-evolving technology to a 16-channel port system, Base 8 (or standard
density) and Base 16 (or high density) port number systems were created.
NOTE:
Any 16-channel card, must use the high density (Base 16) port numbering system. Alternatively, any 8-channel
card can use either the standard density (Base-8) or high density (Base 16) port numbering system
Base 8 Port Number System
The Base 8 Port Number System splits 16 ports between a top and bottom group. The bottom group starts with 1 through
136; the top group consists of ports 137 through 272 (see Figure 7).
EXAMPLE:
Figure 4. Example
This means that if you have an AIO-16 in slot 1, ports 1–8 and 137–144 is used by the AIO-16 card.
Alternatively, if you have AIO-16’s in slots 1 and 3 and an AIO-8 in slot 2, the following port mapping
applies:

Base 16 Port Number System
The Base 16 Port Number System is newly supported with the TBX-Tribus Card. Unlike the Base 8 Port Number System,
where the ports were split into an upper and lower set of eight (8) ports, the Base 16 Port Number System puts all 16 ports in
one slot. This means, when you configure your intercom system to support Base 16, slot 1 in the ADAM holds ports 1through
16, slot 2 holds ports 17 through 33, slot 3 holds 34 through 49, and so on. When a Tribus card is inserted into the frame, the
port numbering system jumps to the next available AIO card slot, see Figure 9.

Force Autonomous Mode Check Box
The Force Autonomous Mode check box, shown in Figure 10, is used to force the current frame into autonomous
(independent) mode, if none of its Tribus audio links are active. Normally, a frame communicates with other frames that are
part of the same intercom. However, the Options page of the Intercom Configuration dialog has a new option, Force
Autonomous Mode when no audio links up. If selected, the frame refuses to communicate with any other frames if none of its
Tribus links are up, even if Ethernet communications are fine. And, once one (1) or more of its audio links are restored, the
frame automatically tries to re-establish messaging links to the other frames in the cluster.

•
IMPORTANT:
MCII-e version 2.8.0 or higher.
AZedit version 4.4.0 or higher.
Tribus version 1.1.0 or higher.
Each frame in the system must have two (2) TriBus cards installed.
In ADAM, TriBus cards are in slots 8 and 9.
In ADAM-M, TriBus cards are in slots 5 and 6.
Ring Architecture Overview
In a ring-wiring architecture, each frame has TriBus links to two (2) other frames. Multiple links are used to pass multiple
frames’ timeslots from one frame to the next. It is not uncommon for timeslots to be forwarded across multiple links. The links
in the Ring Architecture are bi-directional, meaning audio is passed two (2) different ways; thus, the system can be viewed as
having two (2) separate, unidirectional rings. In one ring, timeslots are sent clockwise from frame to frame, and in the other
ring, the timeslots are sent counterclockwise.
EXAMPLE:
Bosch Security Systems, Inc.
In a five (5) frame system, timeslots generated in frame one (1) are forwarded clockwise through
frames two (2) to five (5). Frame five (5) does not forward the timeslots to frame one (1) because
this is where the timeslots originated. Alternately, the timeslots generated in frame one (1) are also
forwarded counterclockwise through frames five (5) to two (2).
