    How to configure IP-223 for Console Mode


    How do I configure the IP-223 to operate in Console mode?



    Programming the IP-223 to operate in Console mode:

    For either 2 or 4 wire set J3, J9, J11, J16 and J21 (Line 1) or J19, J20, J25, J28 and J29 (Line 2) to "B" position.

    For 2-Wire; set J33 and J34 (Line 1) or J5 and J6 (Line 2) to "A" position, set J14 (Line 1) or J24 (Line 2) to "B" position.

    For 4-Wire set J33 and J34 (Line 1) or J5 and J6 (Line 2) to "B" position, set J14 (Line 1) or J24 (Line 2) to "A" position.

    Now connect your 2 or 4-Wire control line to the correct IP-223 DB-25 I/O port.

    For 2-Wire connect the (TX/RX) wires to Pins 13 and 25

    For 4-Wire connect the TX (Out to console) wires to Pins 13 and 25, connect the RX (In from console) wires to Pins 12 and 24.

    Once your jumpers and wire connections are set you will need to place the IP-223 line into Console mode. To do this, follow the steps below:

    Log into the web page of the IP-223.

    Click on the Multicast address setup picture at the top of the page.

    Use the Line Type drop down for line 1 or line 2 and set it to Console mode.

    Now Click on the Submit button at the bottom of the page.

    Click on the Per-Line setup picture at the top of the page.

    Go to individual Lines being configured for Console mode, scroll down to "Options" section.

    Check "Parallel Tone Console" checkbox.

    Now Click on the Submit button at the bottom of the page.

    Now click on the Save To EEPROM and click on Save Parameters.

    Now that line of the IP-223 is set to Console mode will decode PTT tones.

    The next steps you need to take is to set levels. To set levels do the following:

    Using a transmission test set or similar device, measure the audio on the front panel RX test point of the IP-223 to ground.

    Key up the attached tone console, with no voice (only 2175 tone present)

    Using a small screw driver, adjust the RX pot on the front of the IP-223 for the line under test. 

    Set the Low Level guard tone to the level you desire, typical is -20dbm into a loaded circuit (looking for 0 gain)

    Key up the tone console, measure the voice audio on the RX pins of the IP-223, typical is 0dbm peaks into a loaded circuit.

    You should see "CTX F1" displayed on the front of the IP-223 when you PTT from the tone console, TX packets are now being sent to the network.
