Simulcast (CTCSS/Data Clock) [1204-14]

The Simulcast CTCSS/Data Sync/Data Clock Option Card provides CTCSS, data clock, and alarm outputs through relays for the SecureSync platform through one DB-9 and one RJ-12 connector. The maximum number of cards installed is six (6).

    1. Connector: DB-9
      • Outputs:
        • (3) RS-485 Outputs (Data Clocks, CTCSS frequencies, 1PPS)
        • (1) Alarm
      • Voltage:
        • Alarms: GND normally, high impedance when Alarm
    2. Connector: RJ-12
      • Outputs:
        • (1) RS-485 Outputs (Data Clocks, CTCSS frequencies, 1PPS)
        • (2) Alarm
      • Voltage:
        • Alarms: 5V pulled up through 10 kΩ normally, GND when Alarm
  • Note: By factory default, all CTCSS outputs are DISABLED.

Pin Assignment: DB-9 Connector

Outputs: Alarm0, CTC0 Out, CTC1 Out, CTC2 Out (with only one Simulcast option card installed)

Note: Alarm Output 0 through Alarm Output 3 are reserved by SecureSync. In the Web UI, numbering for alarm outputs for this option card will begin at Alarm 4, which is available on the DB-9 output, while Alarms 5 and 6 are assigned to the RJ-12 connector.

CTCSS and Alarm Outputs: Viewing Signal States

To quickly view the current signal state of the 1204-14 Simulcast outputs, in the Web UI navigate to the option card’s Status Summary panel. For instructions, see: Viewing an Input/Output Signal State.

All outputs are listed, displaying their current output states. For a listing of the states, see CTCSS Outputs: Edit Window, and Alarm Outputs: Edit Window.

 

To view the settings of one of the Alarm Outputs or CTCSS Outputs, go to its Status window. For instructions, see: Viewing Input/Output Configuration Settings.

The Web UI list entry for this card is named: Simulcast.

Note: Alarm Output 0 through Alarm Output 3 are reserved by SecureSync. Numbering for alarm outputs from the option card will begin at Alarm 4, which is available on the DB-9 output, while Alarms 5 and 6 are assigned to the RJ-12 connector.

CTCSS Outputs: Edit Window

To configure a CTCSS output, go to its Edit window. For instructions, see: Configuring Option Card Inputs/Outputs.

The Web UI list entry for this card is named: Simulcast.

The Edit window allows the configuration of the following settings:

  • Signal Type: Allows selection of the desired signal type. Available options include:
    • Disabled
    • CTCSS 1/3 Tones
    • CTCSS 1/10 Tones
    • Data Clocks
    • 1PPS
  • Signal Output:
  • Offset: Value in nanoseconds that can be used to adjust for cable delays or latencies.
  • Signature Control: Controls when the output will be present. For more information, see Signature Control.

819x Option 17 Mapping

To replicate settings used in Series 819x devices, use the following information to configure option card no. 1204-14 for compatible CTCSS operation:

  • DB-9 Output Index 0: Set to desired CTCSS 1/10 or CTCSS 1/3 tone
  • DB-9 Output Index 1: Set to 18 kHz Data Clock
  • DB-9 Output Index 2: Set to desired CTCSS 1/10 or CTCSS 1/3 tone.

Alarm Outputs: Edit Window

To configure one of the ALARM Outputs, go to its Edit window. For instructions, see: Configuring Option Card Inputs/Outputs.

The Web UI list entry for this card is named: Simulcast.

Note: Alarm Output 0 through Alarm Output 3 are reserved by SecureSync. Numbering for alarm outputs from the option card will begin at Alarm 4, which is available on the DB-9 output, while Alarms 5 and 6 are assigned to the RJ-12 connector.

Note: You can configure the alarm type (None, Minor, or Major) for both the DB-9 and RJ-12 connectors. For additional information on alarm types, see Minor and Major Alarms.

The Edit window allows the configuration of the following settings:

  • Alarm Type:
    • None—Will not output for an alarm
    • Minor—Will output on a minor alarm
    • Major—Will output on a major alarm.
