General Information
Product Overview
The GAI-Tronics Industrial Communications System (ICS)
Page/Party® is a modular industrial communications system
that can include from two to possibly hundreds of stations.
All stations are wired in parallel and additional stations can
be added to the system at any time.
The desk-edge subset enables you to perform page and
party line communication when installed with a remote
amplifier. The rugged remote subsets include a pressbar
handset, a handset cradle, and a five-party rotary selector
switch (multi-party subset only).
The subset’s compact design allows it to be mounted
indoors where space is limited. The compact size is made
possible by housing most of the support electronics in a
separate remote amplifier.
The angle bracket, supplied with the subset, supports a
wide variety of mounting options. The DB25 subset
interconnect cable permits mounting up to 10 feet from the
amplifier.

Installation
WARNING
Do not install this equipment in hazardous areas.
Such installations may cause a safety hazard and
consequent injury or property damage.
1. Refer to Figure 2 for the desk-edge mounting
bracket hole locations and sizes.
2. Secure the bracket to a vertical surface using
two #8 screws in the 0.20-inch (5.1mm) holes
on the side of the mounting bracket. Refer to
Figure 3 for a typical installation.
3. Attach the subset to the mounting bracket with
the two #10-32 screws and washers provided.
To do this, align the two threaded holes on the
bottom of the subset with the through-holes on
the mounting bracket.
4. Plug the interconnect cable into the subset and
the remote amplifier. Secure the interconnect
cable thumbscrews to assure the plug does not
disconnect.

Operation
For paging and subsequent party line conversation, the station operator lifts the handset, selects a free
party line using the five-position rotary selector switch (if equipped), and presses the handset pressbar.
The station operator pages the desired individual and designates the party line on which that individual
should respond. The individual then responds by approaching the nearest ICS Page/Party® station,
selecting the appropriate party line and lifting the handset. Full-duplex communication can then be held
on the party line without broadcasting over the speakers. After the conversation is complete, all parties
should place the handset back on hook.
NOTE: The ICS Page/Party® station incorporates a noise-canceling microphone to reduce transmitted
ambient noise. This requires the user to place the microphone as close as possible to his or her mouth.
