3. GENERAL DESCRIPTION

TOA's 9000 Series Amplifiers are Matrix Mixers designed to be used in conjunction with optional modules and can be configured for up to 8 inputs and 8 outputs. Usable modules include 5 types of 9000 series plug-in modules, D-001T (2-channel input), T-001T (Audio output expansion), C-001T (Control I/O expansion), ZP001T (Zone paging), and AN-001T (Ambient noise sensor), as well as 900 series input modules. The most appropriate modules can be selected depending on applications.

By changing operation mode, the 9000 Series Amplifier can be used either as a matrix system suited to BGM or paging broadcasts, or as a mixer that is appropriate for speech or sound reinforcement applications. It is equipped with signal processing and control functions, permitting all parameters to be set at the amplifier*. Further, settings data can be stored inside the amplifier and called up using the keys on the front panel.

The M-9000 is a Matrix Mixer Amplifier featuring the above matrix mixer function.

Besides the M-9000's matrix mixer function, the following A-9000 Series Amplifiers come with power amplifiers, out of which A-9060DH, A-9120DH, and A-9120DL can perform 2-channel or stereo broadcast in stand-alone operation.

A-9060DH: 60 W (70 V output) x 2 A-9120DH: 120 W (70 V output) x 2 A-9120DL: 120 W (4 Ω output) x 2 A-9060S: 60 W x 1

A-9120S: 120 W x 1

A-9240SH: 240 W (70 V output) x 1

*You can make setting data easily on the PC by using the Programming Software or the Excel file prepared as a utility tool for data setup; both are contained in the supplied CD-ROM.

For data setup on the Programming Software and the Excel sheets, refer to the instruction manuals of "PROGRAMMING SOFTWARE" and "EASY DATA SETUP USING EXCEL SHEETS" also contained in the CD-ROM.

9

4. FEATURES

Either matrix or mixer mode can be selected depending on application for optimum operation.

Matrix mode is suitable for BGM broadcasts or paging to zoned areas.

Mixer mode is suitable for speech or sound reinforcement in such applications as hotel meeting rooms, churches or conference rooms.

Eight module slots enable audio input and output configuration ranging from 1 input and 1 output to 8 inputs and 8 outputs.

All settings can be performed at the unit using the built-in vacuum fluorescent display (VFD), setting keys and Parameter setting knob on the front panel.

Up to 32 settings can be stored as Event memory (in matrix mode) or as Scene memory (in mixer mode), which can be recalled by the unit or external connected equipment.

An RS-232C port permits remote control of the unit using an AMX*1 or Crestron*2 controller, or similar external equipment.

A key lock function prevents accidental changes of front panel key or knob operation.

Volume adjustment, paging initiation, and BGM program selection can be easily remote-controlled. The optional C-001T module permits the number of control inputs and outputs to be increased.

Paging calls can be performed by a PABX (extension telephone) with the use of the optional ZP-001T Zone Paging module.

With the use of the optional AN-001T Ambient Noise Sensor Input module and AN-9001 Ceiling Mount Microphone, the amplifier's output volume can be automatically adjusted in response to the change in ambient noise level.

Three operation methods are available in Matrix mode; Normal matrix operation, 1-channel output operation, and 2-channel output operation. Depending on the 9000 Series amplifier model and built-in modules, you can select either 1-channel output operation method that permits audio signals to be output only at the output channel 1, or 2-channel operation method that permits BGM broadcasts to be output at the output channel 1 and priority broadcasts at the output channel 2.

Moreover, with the use of the optional ZP-001T and SS-9001 Speaker Selector, 1-channel or 2-channel broadcast can be made to 4 zones.

The optional ZM-9001 Zone Manager adds 6 control inputs, while the optional ZM-9002 Zone Manager adds 4 control inputs and 1 volume control.

A ducker function*3 permits paging calls to be made without interrupting BGM broadcasts when in matrix mode.

Because an auto-mixing function (ducker function*3 and NOM attenuation function*4) is available when in mixer mode, the output gain can be automatically adjusted.

*1 AMX is a trademark of AMX Corporation.

*2 Crestron is a trademark of Crestron Electronics, Inc.

*3 The Ducker function automatically attenuates input signals with lower priority when two or more audio signals are simultaneously received.

*4 The NOM (Number of Open Microphones) attenuation function automatically adjusts the output channel gain depending on the number of open microphones.

7.2.1. D-001T (2-Channel Input Module)

The D-001T module is designed for use with the 9000 Series amplifiers. Up to 4 modules (8 channels in total) can be inserted into the amplifier.

The module can handle signals ranging from microphone level (–60 dB) to line level (–10 dB) in 9 input sensitivity levels.

Phantom power (24 V) can be supplied for microphone level (–60 dB to –30 dB) signals. The D-001T module has an internal digital signal processor that can process input signals.

The D-001T module is required to use a VOX (Voice Operated Exchange) function and input channel level meter.

7.2.3. ZP-001T (Zone Paging Module)

The ZP-001T module is designed for use with the 9000 Series amplifiers and functions as an interface to connect the 9000 Series amplifiers to an analog PABX, allowing zone paging to be initiated from the PABX. Only one ZP-001T module can be used per 9000 Series amplifier.

There are two operation modes: Ring signal and Paging port modes. Select one of the two modes when using this module.

The operation method differs depending on the set operation mode. (Refer to p. 30 "Zone Paging.")

4.Paging input terminal [PAGING IN]

4-pin removable terminal block, 2 pins are used for this input. This terminal is used to connect a PABX in the paging port mode.

5.Control input terminal [CONTACT IN]

4-pin removable terminal block, 2 pins are used for this input. Connect the contact output from a PABX to this terminal.

6.Control output terminals [CTRL OUT 1 G, 2 G, 3 G, 4 G]

4-pin removable terminal blocks, control output terminals.

Connect these terminals to the control input terminal of the SS-9001 Speaker Selector.

[Requirements of the PABX to be connected to the ZP-001T]

The PABX shall be complaint with TIA/EIA-464-B standard.

Specifications or conditions required in each of the following modes shall be satisfied:

Note: The ZP-001T may malfunction if the connected PABX does not meet the above requirements.

(A)When using the module in the Paging port mode

Connection: Line level paging port

Signaling method: DTMF (The module cannot be operated with dial pulse.)

Shall provide no-voltage make contact during paging calls.

Insensitive to whether loop voltage exists or not, and whether polarity of the loop voltage is reversed or not when a line connection is established.

Note

If the PABX does not meet the above requirements, use the D-001T module and set the trigger to "VOX" (Voice Operated Exchange) to initiate paging. In this case, the paging output channel cannot be selected, which differs from the operation by the ZP-001T.

(B)When using the module in the Ring signal mode

Connection: Analog two-wire extension line, loop start

Signaling method: DTMF (The module cannot be operated with dial pulse.)

Reorder tone: 120 IPM (impulses per minute) or less

Loop voltage: 24 VDC or more (polarity insensitive)

Insensitive to whether polarity of the loop voltage is reversed or not at a call from the PABX.*

Loop voltage supply shall not be cut off from the beginning of a call to the reorder tone out.*

The state of CPC (Calling Party Controlled) break or "Open Loop Disconnect" shall be reset at the PABX.*

*Note that there is no need to meet these requirements provided that the ZP-001T's control input terminals are kept closed. However, noise may be output if the line is physically disconnected during a paging call because the ZP-001T cannot recognize the line cutoff nor stop output for 30 seconds after paging initiation.

19

7.2.4. C-001T (Control I/O Expansion Module)

The C-001T module is designed for use with the 9000 Series amplifiers and can provide up to 8 channels each of input and output expansion.

Since the main unit has 4 fixed inputs and outputs each, the control input and output can be expanded to up to 12 channels each when the C-001T module is used.

Maximum 2 AN-001T modules (4 channels in total) can be used per 9000 Series amplifier.

It can handle signals from microphone level (–60 dB) to line level (–10 dB) by controlling the gain in 9 steps. Phantom power (+24 V) can be supplied to a condenser microphone.

The AN-001T's inputs are for detecting ambient noise level and cannot be used as normal audio inputs. Ambient noise fed to the inputs can be monitored when the monitor function is set to ON in the Input setting flow.

8. DESCRIPTION OF MATRIX MODE

Two operation modes are made available to the unit: Matrix mode and Mixer mode.

Be sure to select the matrix mode by the Mode switch on the rear panel before using the unit. (The mode switch is factory-preset to the matrix mode.)

MODE

MATRIX MIXER

Mode switch

Important

Be sure to disconnect the power supply plug from the AC outlet when changing the mode.

Since the changes in mode will erase all setting contents, download the set files that need to be stored using the supplied PC software.

This manual describes the instructions on the unit set for the Matrix mode. When you use the unit in the Mixer mode, please read the separate installation and operating instructions for the mixer mode.

8.1. General Description

Use the matrix mode when broadcasting BGM or paging calls to zoned areas in such facilities as civic centers, universities, schools, restaurants, bars, and cruise ships.

Input signals are basically not mixed but distributed in the matrix mode.

Three operation methods are available in this mode; Normal matrix operation, 1-channel output operation (A- 9060S/9120S/9240SH only), and 2-channel output operation (BGM/Page operation) (A-9060DH/9120DH only). (Refer to p. 35 "SELECTING OPERATION METHOD.")

8.1.1. Normal matrix operation

In the normal matrix operation method, multiple audio input signals can be simultaneously routed to multiple outputs and in addition, paging calls assigned different priority levels can be initiated during BGM broadcast to each zone.

The ducker function (refer to p. 27) also allows paging calls to be made without interrupting BGM broadcasts to each zone.

A maximum of 32 settings related to broadcasts, such as broadcast sound source input channels, interrupt broadcast output channels, BGM source input channels, and broadcast start methods, can be stored as Event memory.

8.1.2. 1-channel output operation

This operation method can be selected when the A-9060S, A-9120S, or A-9240SH Amplifier without T-001T Audio Output Expansion module installed is used. Audio signals are delivered only at the amplifier's output channel 1. Paging calls and BGM broadcasts are made on the basis of the priority levels set for input channels. In conjunction with the optional ZP-001T Zone Paging module and the optional SS-9001 Speaker Selector, the output channel 1's signals can be distributed to 4 zones.

8.2. Glossary

ANC (Ambient Noise Control) function (AN-001T only)

The ANC function automatically adjusts the amplifier's output volume in response to the change in ambient noise level.

The output volume changes as the ambient noise level goes above or below the set reference level.

Ducker function

The Ducker function automatically attenuates input signals with lower priority when two or more audio signals are simultaneously received. This function cannot be used if any of such received inputs is not set for the Ducker function.

VOX (Voice Operated Exchange) function (D-001T only)

This function activates the set Event when an audio signal is input. No Event is activated when no input signal exists. If the audio signal drops below a preset level after the VOX function begins operation (i.e. after an audio signal is fed into the module), the set Event is terminated after approximately 5 seconds.

Event

An "Event" is the unit that defines broadcast pattern and up to 32 Events can be stored.

Event classification

[ROUTE]

This setting defines which audio input signal is transmitted to which audio output. Multiple outputs can be selected. Input channels set to priority levels 1 – 7 are for priority broadcasts, while the input channel set to priority level 8 is for BGM. Set Trigger to "None," "VOX" (D-001T only) or "Control Input" (1 – 12). Selecting Control Input for Trigger causes the BGM to be activated by pulse trigger, and priority broadcasts to be operated by level trigger. It is possible to synchronize control inputs and control outputs, with output being produced as long as the Event is activated.

[BASE]

In this setting, multiple BGM Events are combined into one Base pattern so that they are simultaneously activated by means of a single activation signal. To use this function, BGM Events (signal routing from input to output) must be preset in the Route settings.

Up to 4 Route-set BGM Events can be combined into one Base pattern.

Example: Combining Route-set BGM Events Nos. 1, 2 and 3 into one Base pattern, and assigning the Base pattern to Event No. 4

When BGM Events to which the same output channel is assigned are individually activated, their broadcast zone depends on the priority setting (first-in-first-out priority, last-in-first-out priority, or mixing) performed in advance for the Events.

Though BGM Events combined in a BASE pattern are activated simultaneously, the BGM Event with the smallest input channel number is considered to have been selected first.

Example: Assigning the following two BGM Events to Event No. 3 as Base pattern.

Event 1 = Input 1 Outputs 1 and 2

Event 2 = Input 2 Outputs 2 and 3

In this example, Output 2 is duplicated. However, if system priority is set for "first-in-first-out" priority, BGM is broadcast to the following zones because Input 1 has a priority:

Event 1 = Input 1 Outputs 1 and 2 Event 2 = Input 2 Output 3

For Trigger, select "None" or "Control Input" (1 – 12). In Base settings, VOX cannot be selected for Trigger nor can control outputs be synchronized with control inputs. Base settings are not required when only one BGM program has been set in Route.

BGM END

Defines the method of stopping BGM broadcasts. Only "Control Input" (1 – 12) can be selected for Trigger. All current BGM broadcasts are stopped. Control outputs cannot be synchronized with control inputs.

To stop the specified BGM Event set in Route (including the case that the only one Base pattern is broadcast) when two or more BGM Events are activated, turn off the corresponding input channel at the unit's front panel.

27

9. OPERATION

To operate the unit in the matrix mode, make necessary settings in advance such as the audio input/output settings and event settings (including broadcast pattern and BGM broadcast group) according to the set operation method.

9.1. Normal Use

In the matrix mode, the unit need not be manually operated in normal conditions since the set broadcast patterns can be activated by means of remote control. However, it is also possible to adjust the volume, activate the broadcast patterns directly, or turn on or off input/output channels using the front panel-mounted keys and knobs.

This section describes operations that can be performed in normal use when the key lock function is disabled and the unit is set to the matrix mode.

9.1.2. Power ON/OFF

Power is turned on when the power switch is pressed.

To turn off the power, hold down the power switch for 0.5 second or more.

Note

The power switch is a soft-switch, so the internal microcomputer is still operating even when the power switch is set to OFF.

28

9.1.3. Changing the input volume

Step 1. Press the Input channel selection key to choose the input channel for which you want to change the volume from those with the illuminated Input channel ON/OFF indicator (channel number).

The selected channel's selection indicator (red dot) lights, and the channel name and volume level are displayed on the VFD screen.

Step 2. Adjust the volume using the input volume control.

Tip

Whether the changed volume is saved or not depends on the setting item "Memory erasure or storage" in the UTILITY setting on page 59-C21.

Step 3. After completing adjustments, press the Memory key.

The channel selection indicator extinguishes and the on-screen indication disappears.

Note

You cannot perform the Utility key operation as long as any indication is displayed in the upper line of the VFD screen.

To enter the Utility setting, delete the on-screen indication by pressing the Memory key.

When "SAVE" is selected for the "Memory erasure or storage setting" item in the UTILITY setting on page 59-C21, the changed input volume is saved by pressing the Memory key.

Again, do not forget to press the Memory key in this step.

9.1.4. Changing the output volume

Step 1. Press the Output channel selection key to turn on the Output channel selection indicator (red dot) for the output channel for which you want to change volume.

Channels to be selected will change each time the Output channel selection key is pressed. The channel name and volume level are displayed on the VFD screen.

Step 2. Adjust the volume using the output volume control.

Tip

Whether the changed volume is saved or not depends on the setting item "Memory erasure or storage" in the UTILITY setting on page 59-C21.

Step 3. After completing adjustments, press the Memory key.

The channel selection indicator extinguishes and the on-screen indication disappears.

Note

You cannot perform the Utility key operation as long as any indication is displayed in the upper line of the VFD screen.

To enter the Utility setting, delete the on-screen indication by pressing the Memory key.

When "SAVE" is selected for the "Memory erasure or storage setting" item in the UTILITY setting on page 59-C21, the changed input volume is saved by pressing the Memory key.

Again, do not forget to press the Memory key in this step.

9.1.5. Input channel ON/OFF

Input channels alternate between ON and OFF with each depression of the Input channel ON/OFF key. The channel is ON when the input channel ON/OFF indicator (channel number) lights.

In the normal matrix operation, when an input channel is OFF, the Event including the input channel such as BGM or priority broadcast will not be activated, or cancelled if the Event is in progress.

9.1.6. Output channel ON/OFF

Output channels alternate between ON and OFF with each depression of the Output channel ON/OFF key. The channel is ON when the Output channel ON/OFF indicator (channel number) lights.

In the normal matrix operation, when an output channel is OFF, no output goes through on the channel and the Event will not be cancelled.

29

9.2. Zone Paging

This section describes the method of initiating zone paging from a PABX (extension telephone) using the ZP001T Zone Paging module. Note that the operation method differs depending on the ZP-001T's operation mode setting: paging port mode or ring signal mode.

In both operation modes, when any of the following situations arises, the ZP-001T will not receive calls from the PABX or the line will be cut off if the ZP-001T is being engaged in paging call.

The input channel for the ZP-001T is turned off.

The input channel for the ZP-001T is muted by way of the control input.

Emergency-mute (EMG-MUTE) is activated by way of the control input.

9.2.1. Paging port mode

Step 1. Activate the paging port from the extension telephone.

Since this method differs depending on the type of exchange, please read the instruction manual for the extension telephone.

When the paging port is activated and the control input terminal is closed, the ZP-001T module connects the line.

Step 2. Select the output channel.

Press [0] first, followed by the output channel number* ([1] – [8] or [9] when selecting all numbers simultaneously). Pressing the [#] key completes the output channel selection.

*In the 1-channel or 2-channel output operation method, press the ZP-001T's control output number ([1] – [4] or [9] when selecting all numbers simultaneously).

Example: To select Outputs 2 and 3, press [0] [2] [3] [#].

To make an all-zone call, press [0] [9] [#].

Step 3. Begin paging.

When the pre-paging tone is set to ON (p. 43), begin paging after the tone sounds.

When the selected output channel is being used by other broadcast with higher priority level, a busy tone is heard from the handset, indicating that paging cannot be performed.

Step 4. Deactivate the paging port to terminate paging.

Since this method differs depending on the type of exchange, please read the instruction manual for the extension telephone.

30

9.2.2. Ring signal mode

Step 1. Make a call from the extension telephone to the ZP-001T module.

After a calling tone sounds twice, the ZP-001T receives the call and a callback tone is heard from the handset.

Step 2. Select the output channel.

Press [0] first, followed by the output channel number* ([1] – [8] or [9] when selecting all numbers simultaneously). Pressing the [#] key completes the output channel selection.

*In the 1-channel or 2-channel output operation method, press the ZP-001T's control output number ([1] – [4] or [9] when selecting all numbers simultaneously).

Example: To select Outputs 2 and 3, press [0] [2] [3] [#].

To make an all-zone call, press [0] [9] [#].

Step 3. Begin paging.

When the pre-paging tone is set to ON (p. 43), begin paging after the tone sounds.

Paging can be performed within 30 seconds after the call gets through. After 30 seconds have elapsed, the line is automatically disconnected.

When the selected output channel is being used by other broadcast with higher priority level, a busy tone is heard from the handset, indicating that paging cannot be performed.

Step 4. To terminate paging, press [0] [0] [#], and then replace the handset.

If dialing [0] [0] [#]: Pressing a first [0] terminates paging (a DTMF tone for the first [0] is output), and the ZP-001T disconnects the line after the [#] has been pressed.

If replacing the handset without dial operation: After a signal tone is transmitted about 3 times, the paging is terminated and the line disconnected.

31

9.3. Releasing Key Lock

The key lock function prevents the front-mounted keys or knobs from being tampered. (Refer to p. 77 "Key Lock Function Setting.")

You can temporarily operate the locked keys by entering a password to unlock them. Operation after password entry differs depending on the locked keys.

Step 1. Press the locked key.

The password entry screen is displayed with the flashing indication of the character entry position on the extreme left.

Note

If the front-mounted key operation is locked, the password entry screen appears after you press the input or output selection key and attempt to rotate the input or output volume control.

Step 2. Press the Enter key if no password has been set.

If the password has been set, enter it using the Input channel selection keys.

Entering a character causes the next character entry position to flash for character entry.

When the entered password is correct, the locked key is released. If the registered password is comprised of 1 to 3 characters, as soon as entered 1 to 3 characters agree with them, the locked key is released.

When released keys are those of the type related to input and output operations, they become temporarily operable, but revert to the locked state if they are left unused for 1 minute.

When utility-related keys are released, the key lock menu screen is displayed, clearing the password setting automatically.

Move to the screen for which you want to make a change. When wishing to lock the keys using the password even after the setting has been changed, set the password again. (Refer to p. 81.)

To simultaneously release all locked keys, set the all-key lock function to OFF on the all-key lock ON/OFF setting screen.

When the power switch is locked, the password entry screen is not displayed if the power switch is pressed, and so the power cannot be turned off.

Since the key lock function helps to prevent the front panel keys or knobs from being tampered, their operation can be performed by controls through the control input terminals even if the keys or knobs are locked.

10. PAGING WHILE POWER IS OFF

The 9000 Series amplifiers are designed to initiate paging by way of the ZP-001T module or activate the Event*1 even while the power is OFF*2.

The unit operates as follows when the power is switched OFF:

Events*1 by control input (including the C-001T module) can be activated, but those using the VOX (Voice Operated Exchange) function cannot be activated.

The unit returns to Power-OFF state after Event or paging completion.

Broadcasts can be initiated from the ZP-001T regardless of whether the operation mode is set to Ring Signal or Paging Port.

Broadcasts cannot be performed for 2 seconds during which the Event is activated and the power amplifier begins to operate.

When the power is switched OFF while an Event*1 is being activated by way of the control input with the power ON, even if the Event*1 is still left activated, the above-mentioned Events*1 or paging calls from the ZP001T will have a priority regardless of priority level.

Controls to be performed during power-OFF

The power switch located on the amplifier front panel is a soft-switch, and not a mechanical switch to be used to turn on or off the power supply's primary side. Therefore, the internal microcomputer is still operating even if the power switch is set to OFF.

The following controls can be performed when the power is OFF.

Remote power control by control input

Power can be switched on and off using the external contact.

Event*1 activation by control input

Turns on the unit's power and activates the assigned Event (Trigger-set Event having the input with Priority 1 – 7) using the external contact. The unit returns to power-OFF state after Event operation completion.

Paging by the ZP-001T

Turns on the unit's power. The unit returns to power-OFF state after paging completion.

*1 The Event activation applies in the normal matrix operation. Take it as "Input channel ON" in the 1-channel or 2-channel output operation.

*2 The state that the front panel-mounted power switch is set to OFF position, and the power is still supplied to the unit from the AC inlet.

13. SETTING

Ensure that the Mode switch on the unit's rear panel is set to the MATRIX position before performing the setting. The setting items include those which must be set before operation (audio input/output, Event, and utility settings), those which are adjusted while actually monitoring the sound (adjustment mode settings), and those which restrict operations of front panel keys and knobs (key lock settings).

Select each item on the setting menu screen that appears after entering the setting mode, then proceed to the detailed settings. Broadcast, if present, is not interrupted when you enter the setting menu screen, but is interrupted when you proceed further to the subsequent setting screen except for the Adjustment mode.

If the AC power supply is cut off during setting, the parameters that have been set so far are all canceled. When the power returns, the unit is powered up in the normal use state just before entering the setting mode.

Tip

You can make setting data easily on the PC by using the Excel file prepared as a utility tool for data setup, which is contained in the supplied CD-ROM.

For data setup on the Excel sheets, refer to the instruction manual of "EASY DATA SETUP USING EXCEL SHEETS" also contained in the CD-ROM.
