    How to program the IP-223 to operate in TONE mode


    How do I program the IP-223 to operate in TONE mode?



    Programming the IP-223 to operate in TONE mode.
    First set jumpers for either 2 or 4 wire operation, open unit.

    • 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 radio) wires to Pins 13 and 25, connect the RX (In from radio) wires to Pins 12 and 24.

    Once your jumpers and wire connections are set you will need to place the IP-223 line into Tone mode.

    To do this, follow the steps below.

    1.      Log into the web page of the IP-223.
    2.      Click on the Multicast address setup picture at the top of the page.
    3.      Use the Line Type drop down for line 1 or line 2 and set it to TONE mode.
    4.      Now Click on the Submit button at the bottom of the page.
    5.      Now click on the Save To EEPROM and click on Save Parameters.
    6.      Now that line of the IP-223 is set to TONE mode will emit PTT tones.

    The next steps you need to take is to set levels. You will need a alignment handset to help you. If you do not have one then you may use C-Soft to key up the IP-223. Once you have the IP-223 keying up then you can now set the levels.

    To set levels do the following:

    1.      Using a transmission test set or similar device, measure the audio on the TX pins of the IP-223
    2.      Using a small screw driver, adjust the TX pot on the front of the IP-223 for the line under test.
    3.      Set the Low Level guard tone to the level you desire, typical is -20dbm into a loaded circuit.
    4.      Key up the IP-223 with C-Soft or the handset, measure the voice audio on the TX pins of the IP-223, typical is 0dbm peaks into a loaded circuit.
    5.     You should see the radio key up when you PTT from C-Soft or the handset.
