The PCM-2000 allows you to design a system that is specifically tailored to the requirements of the facility owner. The basic system supports up to three paging zones and consists of only three modules: central processor, telephone interface and zone module plus a power supply. Two additional zone modules can be added to the basic system to increase capacity to nine zones. When more than nine zones are required, a central processor module and up to three zone modules can be assembled as a satellite system. Ten additional nine-zone satellite systems can be installed to bring total zone capacity to 99 zones. When hands-free talk-back is desired, a single talk-back module can also be added to the system.
All interface programming uses common dip switches. Zone group programming, selection of signaling functions and all other parameters are easily set up by simply dialing in with a touch-tone phone. The system can support simultaneous high- and low-power paging, background music assigned per zone, local background music sourcing, and emergency zone group with choice of built-in tones or outside tone source.
The PCMCPU Central Processor from Bogen is one of three modules for the PCM2000. This module includes DIP switches for station ID and a Program/Run switch for programming switches. Each PCMCPU can control a 9 zone system.
