CENTRAL CONTROL STATION CSC-960 TM Command and Control System FEATURES • Convenient front activation panel with 10 programmable push button standard (expandable). • Two-way operation also configurable for one way. • Enhanced operation available by adding our CompuLertTM Graphic User Interface software and work station with Windows 2000/XP. CompuLert CSC-960 TM The CSC-960TM encoder combines maximum flexibility with convenience of operation for new or existing “Outdoor Warning Siren Systems” as well as interfacing to interior Mass Notification Systems used for emergency warning. Use it as a stand-alone unit, or in multiple-controller arrangements of a 1-way or 2-way control system. Compatible with both DTMF or digital FSK data-tone protocols, it may be used to upgrade your existing equipment, or as a controller for your new warning system. For enhanced operation, connect the CSC-960TM to a new or existing PC using a Windows operating system. Designed with mounting in mind, the CSC-960TM is easily installed on a desktop, in a 19” rack-mount configuration, or integrated into an existing dispatch console to conserve space. The CompuLertTM CSC-960TM configuration is determined by the feature set you need as well as the number of RTUs required for sirens and building system interface. For 2-way systems with up to 15 sirens, the CSC-960TM and printer will provide critical status information relating to the operational status of the warning siren equipment. Beyond 15 sirens, the PC Windows adjunct is generally more suitable. For large systems, or where communities require the benefit of enhanced control system(s) features, an operator work station can be provided to include the powerfulCompuLertTM software for “automatic event” report generation, and other convenient features. Now the CSC-960TM will also upload and download (all) command sequences from the PC or operate independently of the PC, when simple, fast, push button activation only is required. Installation and operation is easy! Just plug it in to any 110 VAC, 60 Hz service outlet, connect it to your radio transmitter, turn on the power, and push the tone-signal/siren(s) button(s) to activate the equipment. The CSC-960TM comes standard with battery back-up and should AC power fail, it will remain operational for a minimum of eight hours. The CSC-960TM also provides continuous operation despite operator workstation failure. 4801 W. Woolworth Ave ¥ Milwaukee, WI 53218 • Use as stand-alone encoder with printer for two-way activation and status feedback. • Compatible with FSK, DTMF and TTS siren decoder controllers • Communicates with ASC’s RTU (Remote Terminal Unit) that can control and monitor voice or motor sirens as well as interface to interior building voice systems, (Mass Notification Systems) for emergency notification. • Battery back-up and nonvolatile memory for uninterupted operation during AC failures. • Easy “plug and play” installation designed for desktop or rack mount for easy dispatch console integration.
