How do I Properly Clean and Disinfect my Telex Headset?
This memo describes specific disinfectants and cleaning methods that are acceptable for use on RTS and Telex headset and microphone products.
Approved cleaning agents are listed below. Sani-Cide EX by Celeste Industries or minimum 70% isopropyl alcohol are preferred.
1. Sani-Cide EX3 produced by Celeste Industries 2. Matrix Disinfectant/Cleaner #3 produced by Jon-Don 3. NETBIOKEM DSAM produced by PSA 4. Isopropyl alcohol at least 70%.
Remove porous foam components such as ear cushions and foam microphone windscreen. Apply cleaning agent to a soft towel to clean the plastic and metal parts. Cleaner should wipe off or evaporate quickly. *Do not soak or allow the cleaner to puddle on the unit. *Do not allow any liquid to touch the speaker or microphone element directly as this may cause damage.
Use only isopropyl alcohol (70% minimum) on porous foam parts including the mic windscreen and/or ear cushion. Once removed soak until absorbed completely. Squeeze out excess liquid and allow to air dry at room temperature before reattaching.
Cleaning directions included in this letter are for external surfaces only. Internal surfaces should not require cleaning.
I keep getting a Key Read error 71 on C-Soft or Network Recorder. Why and what can I do?
The PC has an issue with the drivers for the license dongle, reloading of drivers is required.
Please check to make sure the donlge USB or Paralell key is plugged into the pc.
Reboot the pc. Wait 2 minutes after logging into the pc and start the software program.
If you still get key read errors please follow the rest of the steps to properly install the driver.
You need to make sure that the dongle is unplugged.
uninstall all drivers in add/remove programs referred to as sentinel or safenet or SPNcombo.
Install the latest driver from the safenet website. http://www.safenet-inc.com/support/tech/sentinel.asp
Reboot computer again.
Now plug the dongle key back in.
Now download the key reader application and run it. This program should read the key and tell you how many lines it is programmed for. If this program finds the key then Csoft or Network Recorder should work for you. http://www.telex.com/us/dispatch/file?i=97440&lg=eng
Does Telex Dispatch support UDP Unicast addresses instead of UDP Multicast addresses?
Yes. Place opposite ends static ip address into the multicast address field, see example below: Note: You will now be operating in point to point mode (ie...ip-223 to single console), point to multi point (ie...ip-223 to multiple consoles) will not work.
When sending out pages the console steers the page to the correct channel, but then immediately switches back to whatever channel was selected prior to the page. Need it to stay on the paged out channel.
This is standard operation if the page button is configured with 0 in the "Talk Time" field. Typically if you send pages and voice on the same channel it is expected that the "Talk Time" field has a value inserted to keep the radio keyed allowing the dispatcher time to press PTT so your not bouncing the radio RF final with a very short de-key.
