I. INTRODUCTION

A. OVERVIEW




CENTRAL STATION CONTROLLER
CSC-960 II FSK ENCODER/DECODER

The Model CSC-960 II Encoder/Decoder has been designed to ease the use of the
CompuLert Emergency Warning System. It is the heart of the Emergency Warning System
providing a means of activating warning sirens and Tone Alert Radios. This is accomplished by
connecting the CSC-960 to a radio system and/or telephone landline interface. The operator simply
turning the Emergency Enable key switch and pressing the appropriate button sends out data to the
siren and/or tone alert radio sites. This can be a stand-alone one-way system for those who wish for
secure siren activation only.
The CSC-960 Encoder/Decoder can operate DTMF, TTS, FSK format sirens, and Tone Alert
Radios. The CSC-960 can operate sirens that are either electromechanical or electronic. The CSC-
960 can have up to 10 programmable buttons. These buttons can be programmed to operate all
sirens, groups of sirens, Tone Alert Radios, and/or a series of events into the touch of one button.
Existing console buttons can be connected as well to the CSC-960.
For electronic sirens and Tone Alert Radios, the CSC-960 can have a digital message board
containing pre-recorded messages up to 3 minutes in total length, as well as having a local
microphone for live Public Address messages.
Other options for the CSC-960 include a parallel printer option for siren status printing without
the use of a computer. In addition, the CSC-960 can trigger an audio tone or close a relay to operate
a strobe light or other device to alert personnel whenever an automatic status comes into the CSC-
960.
By interfacing the CSC-960 with the CompuLert Windows software by means of connecting
the CSC-960 to a computer serial port, it can also provide a means of receiving all kinds of useful
information from any and all siren locations. Some of this information is automatically received,
decoded, and displayed on a computer screen for the user. Otherwise the warning system can be
interrogated at any time to determine the current status of any siren. This can be a complete package
setting up a two-way system for those who require more information for emergency planning, current
siren status, automatic siren testing, and a leg up on maintenance.
For more information regarding any of your siren system needs or any of the above options for
your existing CSC-960 or other encoder, contact you American Signal Corporation Sales person or
Dealer near you.

II. Installation, Startup, and Testing Procedure

A. Pre-Installation

1- Determine a location for the CSC-960. This can be in a 19-inch console or on a desk.
Note: Do not install into console until all audio adjustments are made.

2- Locate the AC Power receptacle for the CSC-960 plug. Insert the ac power cord into the CSC-
960 then to the proper receptacle. (The power cord for the CSC-960 is supplied by ASC and
the power supply inside the CSC-960 will work with any AC Line voltage from 90 volts AC to
240 volts AC).

3- Remove the top cover from the CSC-960. This will be temporary to make audio and squelch
adjustments to the encoder/decoder communications board.

Note: An * indicates the typical pins used for tone remote applications.

Note: J2/P2 pins are labeled on the connector.



8
C. Radio and Squelch Adjustment

1- Locate the 10-pin Beau plug marked J2 on the back panel of the CSC-960. This will be where
the radio connections are made to the base station radio, using either a tone-remote system or
with a mobile-type radio depending upon the application.
Note: For a mobile-type radio, the recommended maximum distance between the base radio
and the CSC-960 is 100 feet or less.

2- Attach the base station radio or tone remote adapter to the 10-pin Beau plug. Reference
American Signal Corporation Drawing # 072-0387B for specific details regarding mobile-type
radios. Make sure the appropriate drawing is selected.

3- Locate SW1 on the back panel of the CSC-960. SW1 is the units main power switch. Move the
switch into the ON or upright position. Inspect the CSC-960s front panel LEDs, the Green
POWER LED should be lighted, indicating ac power is applied to the CSC-960. Verify the AC
FAIL LED indicator is not lit. This indicator is for the CSC-960 only. If there is an AC FAIL
indication, Inspect the ac power cord and make sure the cord is plugged in securely at both
ends and that the outlet that its plugged into has ac power. Note: You must first apply ac
power to the CSC-960 to energize it. This is to prevent the CSC-960s internal backup battery
from loosing its charge in shipment.

4- Make sure the CSC-960 and radio are turned on. Also make sure all radio connections are
made. Inspect the CSC-960s encoder/decoder communications board. This is the small circuit
board fastened to the main PCB assembly. It has two small red mini-LEDs sticking through the
solder side of the circuit board near the corner of the board. They are labeled SQ for squelch
and PT for Push-To-Talk. On the back, under-side edge of the communications board, are
three potentiometers. They are labeled on the component side of the circuit side of the PCB.
They are P1, P2, and P3. P1 is the adjustment for the transmit audio level out of the CSC-960.
P2 is factory adjusted and should NOT be adjusted (unless done by factory-trained personnel).
P3 is for the CSC-960s receive audio level. They can be measured on a single black fly-wire
that is coming out the back corner of the communications board. This is the units receive
audio level. Measure from this wire to the units chassis ground or the internal battery ground.

5- Generate a 1KHz audio tone at 3.5 KHz deviation on the base stations receive frequency.
Inspect the squelch or SQ led. While the radio is receiving this signal, the squelch led should
be turned on. While the radio is NOT receiving, the squelch led should be off. If the squelch led
operates backwards, it can be re-adjusted with movable jumpers on the component-side of the
daughter board.
Note: It is recommended to have a radio that has either a carrier-operated or Private-line
operated squelch signal (if applicable) programmed and connected to the CSC-960. This is
used by the CSC-960 for determining if the radio frequency is busy. Also, a tone-remote
system will not have this feature and the CSC-960s program can be programmed to ignore
this feature.

6- Next, while generating the 1KHz tone into the base station radio, connect an ac voltmeter from
the units chassis ground to the single black fly-wire on the daughter board. Measure ac volts
on this wire and adjust when necessary P3 (closest to the inside of the CSC-960) on the
daughter board for 300 milli-volts AC (rms.).
Note: Turning the potentiometer clockwise should turn up the audio level.


9
7- Stop generating the audio tone into the CSC-960 and inspect the squelch LED to make sure it
has turned off. Now monitor the base stations transmit frequency and press the CSC-960s
CANCEL button. Press the button for 0.5 seconds or longer. Inspect the CSC-960s XMIT or
transmit button. It should illuminate for 2-3 seconds and turn off. If it stays on for 30 seconds or
so, Inspect the 10-pin Beau plug and make sure there is a jumper wire between pin 6 and pin 8
unless the system is to be used on a Trunking system. In that case, pin 6 is to be connected to
a Channel-grant pin on the base station radio. If the unit does not transmit at all, check the
squelch LED on the daughter board. It should be off while not receiving any radio traffic. If all
works properly, check the transmit audio level on a service monitor and adjust P1 (closest
potentiometer to the mounting screw) on the daughter board for 3.5 KHz deviation.
Note: Turning all potentiometers clockwise should turn up the audio level.

D. Computer Connection and Software Program

1- Locate the 9-pin D-sub connector on the back of the CSC-960. This is a serial RS-232 port to
be connected one of the Computers open serial ports. Attach and secure the supplied serial
cable to the back of the CSC-960 and to the Computer. You can make your own cable if the
run between the PC and CSC-960 are longer than the cable supplied (12 feet). Refer to
American Signal Corporation Drawing # 080-0131A for details on the serial connection. Note:
Recommended maximum distance between PC and CSC-960 is 100 feet.

2- Locate the customer-supplied disk with the Compulert program and put the disk into the
computers drive. The Computer program will run on Windows /98/NT/ME/XP.

3- Before continuing onto the next step, be sure to check your computers printers box. You will
need to have a printer loaded onto your machine and setup as the default printer (except on
newer versions of the Compulert program). This is needed so that the Compulert program can
find your default printer fonts to print out the available reports from the Compulert program.
Otherwise, after you install the Compulert program when you attempt to run the Compulert
program, you may get an error, which will prevent you from executing the program.

4- If you have a Compulert Windows Program Version 6 contained on a CD-Rom disk, the
Compulert installation program should start automatically. If not click on Start, then Run, and
then type in D:\Start.bat where D: is the drive containing the CD-Rom disk.

5- You will then see a box that will ask you to choose the destination folder. This is the folder
where you will be installing the program. As a default, it will come up with C:\Winapps\ASC2.
You can change the folder by typing in the box the appropriate folder.

6- If installing a newer version of an existing Compulert program, it is advisable to choose a
different folder than the original program. After verifying the program is correct and working
properly, you can then delete the old Compulert program folder and its contents. (For version
6, use the Windows Control Panel, Add\Remove Programs to remove the Compulert program.)
Note: New versions of the Compulert program make a shortcut of the program in the Windows
Startup folder.

7- Make sure the CSC-960 is powered up and the serial cable is plugged in at both ends to the
PC and CSC-960. Next, find the Compulert program icon by clicking on Start, then Run, then
Programs, then Compulert. Click on the Compulert program. The program will start to load
and will automatically start to look out each of the Computers serial ports until it finds the

10
CSC-960. It will then say Connected to Central #1. If the Computer program cannot find the
CSC-960, it will come up and there will be a red box that says Demo in the upper left of the
screen. This means that Compulert program cannot send or receive data from the CSC-960.

8- Temporarily turn OFF the base station radio but leave it connected to the CSC-960. In the
Compulert program, click on the Report menu, and then click on Show Journal. This will
open a green box that will show all activity on the system. Next, turn the key on the front of the
CSC-960. This will enable the front panel buttons and they will be illuminated.
Note: Only the Cancel button is always enabled.

9- Go through and press each of the CSC-960s buttons one at a time. Make sure you hold the
button in for at least 0.5 seconds. Look at the Journal box on the computer screen and make
sure the journal says Sent from Central # 1 Alert to ***, etc. This will verify that the buttons are
correct and operate properly without activating any sirens. Turn the key switch off when done
testing all the buttons.

10- Replace the CSC-960 top cover; mount the CSC-960 into the console (if applicable), and turn
on the base station radio. Make sure the serial cable is connected at both ends and the ac
power cord is connected at both ends. Execute the Compulert program if not running. Press
the Cancel button and look at the Journal box in the Compulert program window. Make sure it
says Sent Cancel from Central # 1 to ***. You are now live!!!

11
E. Final Testing

1- After each individual siren location has been commissioned, try polling each individual siren
from the Compulert program. This will verify that the sirens can communicate from and to the
CSC-960. The Poll command is found under the Status menu in the Compulert program.
Just click on Status, then click on Poll, enter the siren address or *** for all sirens, and click
on the Send button. The CSC-960 will transmit a signal to the siren site and the siren RTU
should decode and retransmit a signal back to the CSC-960. During the operation, a gray
status box should appear displaying the status of the RTU unit. Next, send a Clear Status
command to the siren location and another Poll. This will clear any status out of the RTUs
memory.
Note: Some versions of the Compulert program may be programmed to Poll automatically
when choosing the Clear Status command by way of a macro routine. Monitor the Journal box
to determine if your program does this. Any problems with that site will be shown in red letters
in the status box assigned that siren location.

2- When all sites are polling, the sirens can then be tested for an audible tone. This can be the
Test (Growl) (1-second Test) or any other siren tone. This should be done to verify the
activation status of each individual siren. Click on the Status menu, then click on the Test
(Growl) command, then enter the siren address or for all sirens *** can be used, and click on
the Send key. The siren(s) should sound. Next, poll the siren(s) to verify that they activated. If
all sirens worked properly, you should see in the gray status box on the bottom line marked
Siren a status of Idle (1) and the next line below saying Activate Okay. This identifies the siren
is currently idle (not making sound), has been activated once since last reset, and the siren
activated properly.

3- To print the results of this test, select Siren Summary. Siren Summary is located in the
Report menu. This function prints a concise time dated chart-form report displaying the
statuses of the sirens.

III. Emergency Operating Procedure (960 Front Panel)

A. Introduction

Model CSC-960 II FSK Central Station Controller Front Panel

The front panel of the Model 960 has been designed to ease the use of the CompuLert Emergency
Warning System. The following is a description of the Model 960 front panel.

The following features are typically found on the face of the Model CSC-960 II:

Alert Button
Attack Button
Fire Button
Cancel Button
Emergency Enable Key
Transmit
Power
AC Fail
Macro Run

The Alert push-button switch causes all of the sirens in the system to activate with a steady tone for
three minutes.

The Attack push-button switch causes all of the sirens in the system to activate with a wailing 6-
second ramp up tone, and 6-second ramp down tone. This signal will sound for duration of three
minutes.

The Fire push-button switch causes all of the sirens in the system to activate with a wailing 16-
second ramp up, and 8-second ramp down signal. This signal will sound for time of 1.5 minutes.

The Cancel push-button switch stops any active siren command silencing any active siren.

The Emergency Enable key switch must be ON to light the Alert, Attack, and Fire switches, and to
enable their operation.

The Transmit Indicator light is to show the operator that the CSC-960 Encoder is sending a signal
out to the siren locations. It is only illuminated while the unit is currently transmitting.

The Power Indicator light is to show that the CSC-960 is currently on and powered up. This indicator
light should be on anytime the power toggle switch (located on the back panel) of the CSC-960 is
turned on.

The AC Fail indicator light is to show that the CSC-960 has lost ac power. This indicator should
normally not be lit. The CSC-960 encoder has an internal battery for backup power in the event that
ac power is lost. There is also a fuse holder (located on the back panel) for the ac power.

The Macro Run indicator light is to show that the CSC-960 is currently busy running a routine of pre-
programmed list of steps (called a macro). Users should wait until the Macro Run light turns off before
sending any other commands to the siren(s).

13
B. Activate Siren Signal from Front Panel
(Operates all Sirens in the system or can be programmed for groups or macro events up to 10
buttons)

Emergency Panel Operation:

1-Turn the Emergency Enable key so emergency buttons on front panel light.

2-Momentarily press the Alert, Attack, or Fire button to sound the desired signal. (Siren will
stop automatically after 3 minutes.) Watch for the Red Transmit Light to come on and then go
off within a few seconds. This indicates the signal has been sent out. If in doubt, you can press
the signal button again and send the signal a second time to ensure the signal has been sent
out to the sirens.

3-To cancel the Siren Tones at any time during the 3-minute period; momentarily press the
"Yellow" Cancel button. (The Cancel button is always active).





C. Cancel to all Sirens in the System. Watch for the Red Transmit Light to come on and then go off
within a few seconds. This indicates the signal has been sent out.

Emergency Panel Operation

1. Momentarily press the Cancel button; the position of the key will have no effect on this
operation. (This will cause the siren to stop running no matter which command has been
operated) If in doubt, you can press the Cancel button again and send the signal a second
time to ensure the signal has been sent out to the sirens.

services sold hereunder shall be limited to the warranty provided above, and, with respect to other performance of
the sales/service contract, shall be limited to the contract price. AMERICAN SIGNAL CORPORATION SHALL
NOT BE SUBJECT TO ANY OTHER OBLIGATIONS OR LIABILITIES, WHETHER ARISING OUT OF BREACH
OF CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE AND STRICT LIABILITY) OR OTHER
THEORIES OF LAW, WITH RESPECT TO EQUIPMENT SOLD OR SERVICES RENDERED BY AMERICAN

limiting the generality of the foregoing, American Signal Corporation specifically disclaims any liability for property
or personal injury damages, penalties, special or punitive damages, damages for lost profits or revenues, loss of
