INTRODUCTION
1 This handbook provides the maintenance personnel with sufficient information to maintain and
repair the T6R receiver to module level. It provides an overview of the internal architecture of the receiver
and describes the various replaceable modules, their function, part number and how to obtain
replacements. In particular it enables the user to:
o

Conduct scheduled maintenance tasks including checking/setting the reference frequency


oscillator to compensate for long term ageing effects

Identify any tools or test equipment required to maintain the receiver

Use the Built-in test facilities to check receiver functionality and identify fault conditions to a
particular module

Remove a receiver from service to dismantle and replace a faulty module

Install the Virtual Front Panel (VFP) software into a PC

Use the VFP to:


download all radio settings to a file that can be stored/printed for reference
change radio settings
copy settings from one radio to another
install new radio software

Check a radio after repair and return it to service.

2 A user guide (PAE part number 31-360000RX) is also available. The user guide describes the T6R
receiver and gives complete installation and setting up procedures.
3 Included with the maintenance handbook is a CD-ROM, containing the VFP software and the latest
operating and fill software, and a lead for connecting the radio to a Personal Computer (PC). The radio
software enables the original software to be re-loaded if the receiver's Digital Signal Processing (DSP)
module is ever replaced.

4 The maintenance handbook, lead and software is sold as a T6R maintenance kit part number
70-6100MKIT.
Note ...
Both the maintenance handbook and user guide are available on CD-ROM. Contact PAE for
details.

MODEL PART NUMBER


5

The part number for the T6R receiver is:

B6100

OPERATING FREQUENCY
6 The receivers operating frequency is determined by the synthesiser circuit in the Rx RF module and
can be changed by the user through the front panel, through the VFP or through an associated MARC
system (or compatible control and data system). Details of how to change the operating frequency are
contained in the T6R Receiver User Guide, Section 4 of this handbook (VFP) and the MARC User Guide
(MARC).

INPUT SUPPLIES
7 The receiver can be operated from standard ac input supplies, or from a low voltage dc supply (refer
to the User Guide for specification). Both ac and dc input supplies can be connected to the equipment.
When both ac and dc supplies are connected, operation from the ac supply takes priority; automatic
change-over to the dc supply will occur if the ac supply fails. On restoration of the ac supply, the
equipment reverts to ac operation.

BUILT-IN TEST (BIT) INDICATIONS


8 The receiver continuously self monitors key internal parameters without affecting normal operation.
If a BIT fault is detected, the front panel Alarm indicator lights, the Ready indicator becomes unlit, and the
receiver becomes inoperable.
9 Apart from continuous monitoring, an interruptive BIT test can be initiated locally at the front panel,
or remotely. Certain parameters are monitored when a noise signal is injected into the receiver's
circuitry.
10 The results of continuous monitoring, and of interruptive testing, are available at the front panel LCD
and, if connected, the VFP. When the receiver is used with a MARC system (or other compatible data
and control system) the results are also sent, in the form of a data message, to the monitoring facility.

INTRODUCTION
1 This section describes the modules and assemblies that comprise the T6R receiver and details the
equipments connectors. Designed for rack mounting in a standard 19 inch rack the unit operates from
standard 120/240 V ac supplies with automatic changeover to 28 V dc in the event of mains failure. The
majority of user connections are made through rear mounted connectors.
2 A front panel connector is used for the connection of a headset for local operation or for the
connection of a PC for Virtual Front Panel (VFP) control. Operational settings are configured at the front
panel, through the VFP, or through an associated MARC system (or compatible control and data
system). At the receiver, operational settings are selected and displayed using the front panel
Scroll/Select switch and the LCD.
3 The receiver is housed in a sheet metal chassis with top and bottom lids. Two compartments (top
and bottom) contain most modules and assemblies with front and rear panels straddling the
compartments.

MODULES AND ASSEMBLIES


4

The receiver comprises the following replaceable modules and assemblies:


o

DSP module

Rx RF module

Front panel module

PSU module

Power supply regulator module.

The interconnection of the modules and assemblies is shown in Fig. 3.

6 A brief functional description for each module and assembly is given in the following paragraphs.
Reference should be made to Fig. 2 when reading these descriptions.

DSP MODULE
7 The DSP module provides the receiver user interfaces and performs message formatting,
demodulation and control functions for the receiver. Mounted on the module are the 'rear panel' Facilities
connector CN5, MARC connector CN6 and Computer port CN7 (see Fig. 3 for pin-out detail). The
module comprises the following functional entities:

Central Processor
8 Core control of the equipment is provided by a Hitachi Super H 16-bit RISC processor with both
internal and external ROM and RAM. The internal ROM is factory programmed with a basic boot loader
application; the main application code is held in external FLASH EPROM. This arrangement allows new
application software to be downloaded via a serial port. Configuration and calibration data is held in
external serial EEPROM. A supply voltage supervisor provides a reliable power up/power down reset
signal.

Section 2
Page 2

31-160000RX

Digital Signal Processing


9 The Super H processor is supported by two Analogue Devices 2171 DSP microprocessors
providing the computational power required to implement the demodulation algorithms.

Programmable Gate Array


10 Circuit functions are register mapped into the Super H address space using a Xilinx FPGA. This
allows the hardware configuration to be altered or upgraded by downloading new firmware.

Speech Coding/Decoding
11 The A/D and D/A functions required to interface the digital processing to the analogue lines are
provided by an A Law speech CODEC. Audio output is used to drive a front panel connected headset or
loudspeaker. Audio is also routed out via the Facilities port.

Computer Interface
12 Two RS422 full duplex synchronous serial ports, using HDLC protocol, provide the interface to an
external computer for use in digital modulation modes. A set of four input lines and four output lines,
operating at RS232 voltage levels, are also provided to allow a receiver to be linked to a transmitter to
form a base station.

Serial Remote Control/Data Port


13 An RS422 asynchronous serial port provides a link into a MARC system. The line connections on
the Facilities port are duplicated here for ease of connection to a Remote Site Equipment (RSE 2), part of
a MARC system.

Facilities Port
14 A number of inputs and outputs are provided via the Facilities port. These include the balanced
audio, tape output, unregulated supply and 0 V connections. The inputs and outputs are shown in
Table 1 (see also Table 5 on Page 10 for full pin-out of Facilities connector CN5).

outputs from the DSP module are as follows:
o

IF AGC (Rx RF module)

RF AGC (Rx RF module)

Frequency trim (Rx RF module)

RX RF MODULE
19 This module combines a synthesiser, an RF converter and an IF filter/converter onto one PCB.

RF Converter
20 The RF Converter section converts the RF input signal down to the IF frequency. Two digitally tuned
filters are integrated into the PCB. These filters are controlled by 5 data lines from the DSP module.
21 The RF input is initially passed through an RF AGC attenuator controlled by an analogue signal
(RF AGC) from the DSP module.

IF Filter/Converter
22 The input to the IF filter/converter is provided from the RF Converter section of this module. The IF
filter/converter circuits provide filtering of the 1st IF signal (21.4 MHz) which is then converted to a 2nd IF
signal (450 kHz). The 2nd IF signal is then demodulated by the DSP module.
23 The main channel selectivity is provided by the crystal filter on the IF filter/converter. Separate
crystal filters are used for 8.33 kHz channel spacing and 25 kHz channel spacing. These are
automatically switched in accordance with the channel spacing selected using the narrow/wide control
line.
24 In addition to the filter/converter circuits this section of the module also has IF AGC amplifiers
controlled by an analogue signal (IF AGC) from the DSP module.

Synthesiser
25 This section provides the mixing frequencies required for the RF and IF conversion stages.
26 The synthesiser essentially consists of a 20.95 MHz reference frequency oscillator, a single loop
filter, a VCO and a frequency divider. The 20.95 MHz reference is used in the IF stage and the VCO
output in the RF stage. The frequency divider is controlled by 3 serial lines from the DSP module. An
analogue input (Frequency Trim) from the DSP module allows the reference oscillator to be trimmed.

31-160000RX

Section 2
Page 5

27 A BIT output signal (BIT Synth Lock) is provided when the synthesiser is in lock.

BIT
28 The Rx RF module is able to provide a module interruptive BIT to determine if it is at fault. This is
done by injecting a noise signal, controlled by the DSP module via the BIT Control line, into the front end
of the RF conversion stage, after the RF AGC. The RF AGC is held low during this test to prevent
antenna radiation. The noise source is a broadband VHF oscillator on the Rx RF module. The noise
signal should pass through the RF and IF conversion stages to be demodulated by the DSP module as
would a real signal.

FRONT PANEL MODULE


29 The Front Panel module consists of the following elements:

LCD Module
30 A 16 character by 4 lines liquid crystal display module with backlight displays the radio menu
system. It is controlled by an 8-bit data bus from the DSP module accompanied by 3 control lines (a
separate control line is used to switch the backlight on and off).

Rotary Encoded Switch


31 A rotary switch provides two quadrature outputs that indicate when the switch knob is being rotated
and in which direction. A third output is active when the switch knob is pushed in.

Indicators
32 Four LED indicators, RECEIVE, ALARM, READY and STANDBY, are provided.
individually controlled by 4 lines from the DSP module.

These are

Loudspeaker Amplifier
33 An audio amplifier is provided which accepts an input signal from the DSP module and provides
output to drive a loudspeaker.

Front Panel Connections


34 The Front Panel module is used to mount the Reference Frequency and Microphone,
Headset/Diagnostics connectors onto the front panel. Their associated signals are simply routed through
the module to their required destinations. Table 3 on page 9 shows the Microphone/Headset connections
and Table 4 on Page 9, the Diagnostic PC connections.

Section 2
Page 6

31-160000RX

RECEIVER POWER SUPPLY MODULES


35 The power supply is to run off ac mains or dc backup. If ac is present then it is used as the power
source and an ac detect output is asserted. If ac is not present then the input source is automatically
switched to dc. If dc is present then a dc detect output is asserted.
36 The ac derived supply is provided by a proprietary switched mode power supply (PSU module). A
regulator module provides the ac/dc change-over, on/off switch connection and supply regulation.
37 A low voltage on/off switch is fitted to the receivers rear panel. The switch operates relays that
isolate the dc supply and output from the ac rectifier. When the switch is in the on position, the power
supply outputs are switched through to the receivers circuitry. Note that with the switch in the off position
power is still applied to the receiver but not switched through to the receivers circuitry.
38 The power supply dc outputs are as follows:
+5 V
+15 V
-15 V
Unregulated dc (nominally 28 V).

INTRODUCTION
1 This chapter describes the facilities available when using the Virtual Front Panel (VFP) software
with radios configured for AM-voice operation. The VFP software is located on the CD-ROM supplied
with this handbook.
2 The T6R's operating frequency and settings can be selected at the receiver's front panel using the
multi-function Scroll/Select switch and LCD (see Fig. 1). Procedures for setting the receiver from the
front panel are given in the T6R Receiver User Guide.
3 VFP software, which runs on an IBM compatible PC, can also be used to set up the receiver.
Using the VFP offers several advantages over setting up from a receiver's front panel. These are:
o

When set up using the VFP, a profile of the receiver's operational settings can be created. The
profile can then be used to automatically set up other radios within a system, or to reset a radio
should the DSP module ever be replaced.

After setting up from the VFP, the receiver's front panel can be locked. This means that a
receiver's settings cannot inadvertently be changed by tampering with the front panel controls.

A print-out of a receiver's profile (all the operational settings) can be made from the VFP.

31-160000RX

Section 4 Chapter 1
Page 1

The receiver's original operating software can be reloaded from the VFP should the DSP
module ever be replaced (this facility is not available from the receiver's front panel).

New operating software for the receiver can be downloaded through the VFP (this facility is not
available from the receiver's front panel).

INSTALLING THE VIRTUAL FRONT PANEL (VFP) SOFTWARE
