TECHNICAL MANUAL - JACQUES PCC-550M PC MASTER
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.
Tags are NOT changeable by the Operator and can only be changed by a Technician from the
Database, as described in SECTION 7, PAGE 40.
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
Database, as described in SECTION 7, PAGE 40.
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: separate JACQUES PCC-550M Operating Manual).
Examples of Names are:
Fred Jones
Johnny C

Another way of saying is that a Call Group is a decimal representation of the PA Group that the
Device is located.
Parent Tag
Parent Tags are the Tag values of the Devices that are located immediately above another Device
(FIGURE.51).
For example, a Slave will be connected to a Master. That Slave has a Parent Master having a Parent
Tag. That Master will be connected to Master above it also having a Parent Tag, etc.

The Database table (continued…)
Priority
When there are more than one incoming call, then these calls are automatically listed in order of
Priority Importance.
Every Device is assigned a Priority number to determine its importance in times of multiple incoming
calls.
The highest priorities of importance are any other Master Units. If there is a Master 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 Slaves, then PA Amplifiers, and then Cell Slaves, followed
lastly with everything else.
See TABLE 2 below, for the complete listing of priority numbers of JACQUES Devices.
The Priority value is set between 0 and 254.
0 has the highest (first) Priority
254 the least (last) Priority.
(255 is already assigned for special software functions – do not use for any other function.)
