    Question Why isn't my Kenwood TK-x90 changing channels after following the Telex Instructions?   Answer Changes by Kenwood have caused an issue with firmware for the TK-x90 radio. We know that firmware check sum 7C4A will not work with our IP-223 or IP-224. You will need to downgrade your radio to Firmware Check sum 3902. This will allow you to change channels and have control of the TK-x90 radio from our IP-223 and IP-224 products.           © Copyright Bosch Security Systems All rights reserved.

    Question What are some of the reasons for no serial control of radios attached to IP-223?    Answer Serial control of some Kenwood, EF Johnson, Sepura and iDEN radio models require data initialization upon boot up of the IP-223 before the data connection becomes active. This is indicated by a message in the display of the IP-223, such as “KENWOOD” for Kenwood radios and “EFJOHNSON” for EF Johnson radios (The radio must be powered up before the IP-223 is power cycled.) If you do not get this confirmation upon boot up, you will need to do some troubleshooting. This indication will persist in the IP-223 display until the first time the radio is keyed up. If you are not getting any indication of serial data initialization, check to see that the serial cabling is correct and that the serial programming jumper is inthe correct position for the radio installed. If you are using Line 2 of the IP-223, be aware that a Serial Y cable is required to adapt the standard Telex radio to IP-223 interface cable for use with Line 2. Check to see that you have selected the correct serial data mode in the IP-223 Per Line Settings page, for the radio model you are using.               © Copyright Bosch Security Systems All rights reserved.

    Question What are some reasons I get intermittent PTTs in Tone Mode with Analog Consoles and IP-223‘s?   Answer When using a legacy console with RoIP transport, under certain conditions PTT activation at the radio end (Tone Mode IP-223) may not be consistent. There are two main reasons this can occur: Signal level into the tone remote panel or tone controlled radio is too high or too low. Both insufficient signal level, or excessive signal level can cause the decoder to become unreliable. Increasing or decreasing the level into the decoding device may reveal the optimum set point. Ideally, the set point should be centered in the decoding signal “window”. This point may vary from one decoder device to another. Doubling of the LLGT. If the Console Mode IP-223 does not have the PTT Notch filter on, a 2175 Hz sine wave is sent out with the console audio. At the radio end the Tone mode IP-223, a second LLGT tone is added. The constant variation in phase of these two beating signals will cause problems with intermittent decoding. Only the Tone mode IP-223 should be generating the LLGT. Be sure the Console mode IP-223 has the PTT Notch ON.               © Copyright Bosch Security Systems All rights reserved.

    Question How do I set up an IP-223 for BCD Channel Control?   Answer Many radios are capable of being channel steered via external BCD (Binary Coded Decimal) control. The IP-223 is capable of generating BCD channel control via the bit lines at the DB-25 connectors. The BCD outputs are controlled by the F-Tones generated from the console, and are specified in the F-Tone tables, in the Per Line Settings of the IP-223. BCD bit lines are assigned to the DB-25 pin numbers as follows: 8 -   Dig 0 21-  Dig 1 9 -   Dig 2 22 – Dig 3 10 – Dig 4 23 – Dig 5 20 – Dig 6 The range for the digital output number is 0 to 128, as shown in Table 16, on page 161 of the IP-223 manual. Using pin 20 for COR limits the range to 0 to 63. Assignment of the BCD output values are accomplished in the Per Line Settings page of the IP-223, shown in Figure 1 below. Enter the desired numeric values for each F-Tone in the Digital Output column, (some applications may require the entry of the compliment of the channel number.)  Set IP-223 jumper J8(Line 1) and J30(Line 2) for the appropriate pull up voltage (+5, +12, or floating.) To verify operation of the BCD control, measure the voltage on the LSB bit line, D0, and watch for state changes as the F-Tone number is changed.   Figure 1 - Function Tone Set Up in Per Line Parameters           © Copyright Bosch Security Systems All rights reserved.

    Question How do I change Zones/Channels on a Kenwood radio with Telex Dispatch products?   Answer The Telex Consoles do not have the ability to directly change zones on a radio, this would be done in either the IP-223 or IP-224. The frequency you select on the console would correspond to the F-Tone on the Per Line Setup page in the IP-223/4. In that same section look at the far right hand side and you will see two columns labeled System and Channel. The System column is the zone that you want the radio to change to when the console selects that channel. In turn the IP-223/4 will also change to that channel in that zone. So in practice let’s say the IP-223/4 has F1, F2, F3 set to zones 1,2,and 3 for the channels 1,2,3 respectfully: Now if this is submitted and saved to eeprom, the IP-223/4 will now change channels to zone 1 channel 1 when the IP-2002 selects F1. If the console selects F2 then the radio will change to zone 2 channel 2. If the console selects F3 then the radio will change to zone 3 channel 3.         © Copyright Bosch Security Systems All rights reserved.

    Question How do I program the IP-223 to operate in TONE mode?   Answer 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. Close unit   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.      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 TONE mode.      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 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:      Using a transmission test set or similar device, measure the audio on the TX pins of the IP-223      Using a small screw driver, adjust the TX 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.      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.     You should see the radio key up when you PTT from C-Soft or the handset.           © Copyright Bosch Security Systems All rights reserved.

    Question How do you convert Voting Systems from Analog to IP Based with Telex Equipment?   Answer Conversion of an analog voting system to IP transport is a common mode of system upgrade being successfully done in many locations.  Careful consideration must be given to several aspects of the change in the system configuration in order to achieve good results. The first consideration is planning the network topology to have minimal bandwidth constrictions and packet delays. Ideally, packets moving across the network carrying audio will need to have the most logically direct path possible from port to port…ideally an isolated flat network. The network should be designed with enough bandwidth so that all lines of the IP-223s should be able to function simultaneously without restrictions. It is necessary to configure network timing parameters so that all receiver audio traffic arrives at the voter with nearly the same propagation time, regardless of which receiver site it originates from…something on the order of plus or minus 10 ms. Some latency is acceptable, as long as it is virtually uniform, from all sites. Obviously the audio level characteristics from each receiver site would also need to be matched as closely as possible. Analog audio levels need to be very consistent from site to site. Example: GE Analog Voter system conversion to IP based audio: A typical GE “valley voted” system uses a 1950 Hz status tone to determine when receive traffic is present, and that the receiver and transmission line are functional. The status tone is continuous when no signal is present. The voter cards also use the status tone for line level compensation to provide consistent audio levels regardless of which line is in use. Status Tone Transmission A continuous status tone cannot be used with the IP-223, as packets from receiver to receiver will become largely out of sync over time. Also the CODECs are designed for voice audio rather than a continuous tone and thus a tone will have distortion. One possible workaround is to generate the 1950 Hz locally, just ahead of the voter, and gate it with received audio from the IP-223. A circuit would have to be installed at the voter that generates the status tone the voter is looking for, and passes voice audio during receive activity. Such devices are available from third party vendors. The second change needed to the voter system would be to re-configure it for “vote and hold”, rather than continuous voting during mobile PTTs. The first receiver voted locks in until the mobile PTT drops. This avoids problems that would occur with continuous voting, which can create echoes from audio streams not being in sync.           © Copyright Bosch Security Systems All rights reserved.

In this scenario you could use our IP-223 to expand repeater coverage to multiple distant sites. See the example below on how this would be setup. We are only using line one for this example. IP-223 #1 Multicast address 225.8.11.81    RX 6000   TX 1072    Group TX 6000 IP-223 #2 Multicast address 225.8.11.81    RX 6000   TX 1073    Group TX 6000 IP-223 #3 Multicast address 225.8.11.81    RX 6000   TX 1074    Group TX 6000 If one IP-223 receives it will cause the other IP-223's to key up and transmit.           © Copyright Bosch Security Systems All rights reserved.

    Question How are IP-223s interfaced with Tone Controlled Radios?   Answer In 2 wire mode the wires are connected to the DB-25 connector at pins 13 and 25. In 4 wire mode the TX pair is connected to DB-25 pins 13 and 25, and the RX pair is connected to pins 12 and 24. The corresponding radio connections will be specified by the manufacturer. Some models have built in tone remote adapter boards, and some may require a tone remote adapter board between the IP-223 and the radio.           © Copyright Bosch Security Systems All rights reserved.
