Need to add external paging to Toshiba Strata DK280

Need to add external paging to Toshiba Strata DK280

Need to add external paging to Toshiba Strata DK280

I have a customer that needs to add external paging to a strata dk 280 - 3 external speakers. Do I need an interface between the amp and system and do I just program an extension or line button?

RE: Need to add external paging to Toshiba Strata DK280

The way I do it (in general) is to program a CO trunk with a special dialing code and then connect it to a telecom paging amp like a Bogen.  Then when you dial that trunk code it connects you to the amp and you can do your thing.

Another option is that Valcom makes a station level paging adapter that you can connect to an analog station port, and then to a paging amp.  You dial that extension and are connected to the amp.

You can control who can access paging with the various dial string permission settings in the system.

thanks- when using the CO trunk do I need to connect it to a paging interface or just go directly to the amplifier?

6.5 External Page Options

6.5.1 System Hardware Requirements

Strata DK280 systems offer a variety of external page
options. Additionally, a BGM option is available with
each external page option. DK systems support:

- Paging with BGM (same amplifier)
- Zone Paging with BGM (separate amplifiers)
- Zone Paging with BGM (multiple amplifiers)

1. The PIOU PCB only is equipped-with
Zone Paging.
2. The PIOW/PIOWY/PEPU with the lowest
Program 03 code (41, 42, or 43) will
provide the External Page options.
A PIOU, PIOUS, or PEPU PCB is required to support
the external paging/BGM options. The PIOU will
support any of the paging/BGM options. The PEPU
and PIOUS will support only the paging with BGM
(same amplifier, no zone page) option.

6.5.2 External Page Option Installation
All paging connections are made via the PIOU or
PEPU amphenol connectors or the PIOUS TBI
terminal to the Main Distribution Frame (MDF).
Page (single zone) with BGM (same amplifier)
In this configuration, paging and BGM are amplified by
a common customer-supplied paging amplifier. When
the external page access code is dialed, the external
page control relay is activated, which applies a short
(or opens the contacts) to the amplifier mute control to
mute the music. Install this option in accordance with
the following steps: (Refer to Figure 6-l 6.)

1. Connect input 1 from the paging amplifier to pins
13 (SPR) and 38 (SPT) of the PIOU or PEPU; or
connect to SPT and SPR of the PIOUS.

2. Connect the paging amplifier mute terminal to pins
7 and 32 of the PIOU or PEPU; or connect to DET
and DER of the PIOUS.

3. Connect the music source to the input 2 of the
paging amplifier.

4. Connect the speaker to the paging amplifier
5. Verify that the PIOU or PEPU PlO jumper plug is
in the MAKE position or that the PIOUS Wl
jumper wire is in the MAKE position.

You should be able to google the install manual
