Model 16 Digital Paging Panel
The Model 16 Digital Paging Encoder accepts pages from the RS-232 interface either connected directly to a computer or dumb terminal or via a Hayes compatible modem. It then encodes the pages in either POCSAG or Golay format and sends them to the paging transmitter. The Model 16 sends pages of like format to the transmitter in batches so the pager preamble code is only transmitted once, saving valuable air-time and maximizing system throughput.
The remote control option allows control of a remotely located paging transmitter. The ZAPP! software option allows automated paging from multiple computer entry stations. The Paging Terminal Software option supports TAP and allows entry of pages directly via a dumb terminal.
The Model 16 operating parameters are easily setup and modified via a direct RS-232 connection or Hayes compatible modem to an IBM compatible PC or a dumb terminal. User-friendly menus guide the system operator through initial programming of various features such as the communications parameters, transmitter configuration, paging formats, and station ID. The Model 16 is password protected to avoid unauthorized programming access.
AUTOMATED OPERATION WITH ZAPP!
The Zetron Alphanumeric Paging Program (ZAPP!) is a DOS software product designed for use by operators entering alphanumeric pages for paging systems. It can take input from operators on multiple network terminals or single PCs, and send the pages to the Model 16 where they are encoded and batched for transmission. The ZAPP! software communicates with the Model 16 through the RS-232 port using a Zetron proprietary protocol allowing full capcode specification. This allows ZAPP! to handle an unlimited number of digital pagers, not just the 1000 defined in the internal database of the optional Paging Terminal software.
ZAPP! maintains a database of customers and users so the optional Paging Terminal software is not required. It also stores pre-recorded messages which can be selected with a few keystrokes. All pages sent by the system are saved so they can be retrieved at a later time and reviewed with the customer.
Pages may be sent to an individual subscriber, or to a group of subscribers such as a medical team or fire department personnel. Pages of an emergency nature can require an acknowledgment back to the operator to verify that the page was received by the subscriber. Predetermined times or dates, and periodic intervals may be established for particular pages.
The ZAPP! software can display user screens in virtually any language. A mechanism is provided to allow system supervisors to change the wording of each of the operator screens.
REMOTE CONTROL OPTION
The remote control option allows the
Model 16 to control transmitters using the industry standard
Motorola protocol (PURC�). Burst tones are generated to control the
transmitter and digital data are encoded as modem tones which can be
sent over telephone lines or a radio link. This allows the Model 16
to be located away from the main paging transmitter. Zetron�s Model
66 can be used at the transmitter site for controlling transmitters
that do not support the PURC� protocol.
PAGING TERMINAL SOFTWARE OPTION
With the Paging Terminal Software
option, the terminal connected to the Model 16 displays menus that
allow an operator to enter pages. An internal database stores the
paging format (POCSAG 512, POCSAG 1200,
