The PrisCom station


Contents

Software requirements

  • AMC software v.9.09 or later
  • AlphaPro 9.21 or later


"Scream alarm from idle" is available from station software 01.02.

Decide the configuration starting point

When configuring a system with the 1007061000/1007063000 stations there are two options:

  1. Start with a new AlphaPro database and fill in the parameters from scratch (Basic features)
  2. Use a preprogrammed PrisCom database from Zenitel (Advanced features)

"Basic features" are:

  • Call Button
  • Program Step button (without displaying selected channel)

"Advanced features" means support for:

  • Light button
  • External key switch
  • Corridor lamp and/or group lamp
  • Display for selected program channel
  • Tamper alarm and Power failure alarm
  • Scream alarm
  • AlphaVision

When using the advanced features of the station, it is highly recommended to use the preconfigured AlphaPro database as a starting point. The advanced features is depending a lot on Event Handler programming, and much work is saved by using an already preconfigured database.

Basic feature programming

The 7061 and 7063 uses “Two tone DAK signaling", not regular DAK signaling 

  • In Users & Stations -> User Preferences set DAK signaling to "(3) Two tone signaling w/ack“
  • In Users & Stations -> DAK assign numbers to the panel buttons: 
    • DAK 2 = Call button, normally configured to "I 623 I xxx", where xxx is the number of the Guard Station
    • DAK 3 = Program Step button, normally configured to "I 790" (button not available on the 100 7061 000)

Advanced feature programming

Download the PrisCom database from the download site. Copy the PrisCom database to the AlphaPro Database folder (E.g. C:\Program files\AlphaPro\Database).

Start AlphaPro and select the PrisCom database. Verify that the PrisCom database is visible.

Guard station configuration

  1. In Users & Stations window, highlight the guard station in the list box, select the tab UDP, and include the guard station in UDP 1
Include Guard Station in UDP 1


  1. In Groups -> Local Groups, select group 10 (or another free group) and include the guard station in this “Guard group”. This is required even with a single guard station.
  2. Continue with step 1 and 2 for all guard stations.
Include Guard Station in a "Guard group", here group 10


Prison station configuration

  1. In Users & Stations window, highlight the prison station in the list box, select the tab UDP, and include the prison station in UDP 2
  2. In Users & Stations window, highlight the prison station in the list box, select the tab UDP, and enter the “Guard group” index number (e.g. 10) in the Used Defined Parameter field. This is the target for calls from this station. When the call button is presses on the prison station, a call request is sent to all stations in this group.
  3. Continue with step 1 and 2 for all prison stations.
Prison station: Enable UDP 2, and enter the "Guard group" (here: 10) to receive the Call Request


Notes on DAK programming:

  • No DAK programming is required
  • The event handler programming in the PrisCom database will automatically set “Two tone DAK signaling”, and redirect the DAK keys to point to physical station 500 and 501
  • Physical station 500 and 501 have preconfigured DAK keys according to the PrisCom Station features.

Note that only Prison Stations model 1007061000 or 1007063000 should be in UDP 2. If there are other types of prison stations in the system, they should not be in UDP 2.

Upload configuration to the AlphaCom

  • After the PrisCom stations are connected to the AlphaCom, upload the configuration to the AlphaCom by selecting “SendAll” from AlphaPro
  • When the upload is finished, reset the AlphaCom. When the exchange is up and running, reset once more
  • Now do a “GetAll” to update AlphaPro with the correct settings

Note that every time a new Prison Station is added to the system, the above procedure should be used (SendAll, 2 x reset, GetAll).

The dual reset procedure is only required after adding new PrisCom stations to the system. The first reset will trigger the "Faulty Line OFF" event. This event will automatically program the DAK keys and enable the "Two Tone DAK signalling", and it will send configuration data to the Prison Stations. The second reset is to make the changes take effect. At this stage the AlphaCom configuration is different from the AlphaPro. The GetAll is required for AlphaPro to reflect the actual configuration in the exchange.

Description of the PrisCom database

The Prison Stations 7061 and 7063 are mainly operating by sending a "Two tone" DAK digits to the exchange for input events, and receiving display data messages in response. The Prison Stations are the only station types which are using the "double-tone" DAK signalling. The event handler programming in the PrisCom database will automatically set the Prison stations to use “Two tone DAK signaling”.

Display messages are used to e.g. turn lamps on, set alarm preparation mode during guard presence, or control other features. These messages are mostly defined as commands in the AlphaCom event handler. To change functionality one will have to change these commands or add/remove/change events.

DAK Keys on physical numbers 500 and 501

The Priscom stations have common DAK key programming. The DAK configuration is programmed on physical number 500 and 501, and the event handler programming in the PrisCom database will upon reset cause the AlphaCom to automatically program the DAK’s of the Prison Stations to point to these physical numbers 500 and 501. The DAK table of the physical numbers 500 and 501 are preconfigured according to the table below. Most of the numbers are Event Triggers, starting from 9550 and upwards. Actions for these custom event triggers are defined in the event handler, using the event “15 Event Trigger Feature”.

DAK keys 1-10 is from physical number 500, and DAK key 11-20 is from physical number 501.

IND Commands used by Prison Stations

The outputs on the Prison Stations are controlled by IND commands executed in the event handler. There are eight outputs:

IND output Description Comment
1 L1 - Output 1 Red lamp (Call)
2 L2 - Output 2 Green lamp (Present)
3 L3 - Output 3 Blue lamp (Tamper alarm)
4 L4 - Output 4 Group lamp
5 L5 - Output 5 Spare
6 L6 - Output 6 Spare
7 Relay Cell light
8 Call LED, External LED Also controlled by microphone active (polarity reversal of C/D-wire during conversation)

Syntax:

  • IND <station phys.no> <output> <1> <Indtype> [state]

Example:

  • IND %1.phy 1 1 3 ON: Turn the red lamp ON, flashing



Display data commands

Some properties of the Prison Station are configured in the station it self. The configuration data is sent to the Prison Station as display data, using the Event Handler and the $DSPL command.

The format is as follows:

$DSPL <station> <length> 
  • Station: The prison station
  • Length: The length of the data string.
  • Data: Display data command and parameters. For the Prison Station programming, sequential hex values are used to make the string.


Cmd Parameters Default Description
0x23 None Volume override ON.
0x24 None Volume override OFF.
0x45 None Disable call LED. ("Silent monitoring" mode).
0x46 None Enable call LED. (End "Silent monitoring" mode).
0x47 None Set flag for preventing call-request button from generating a callrequest in station's offline mode
0x48 None Clear flag for preventing call-request button from generating a callrequest in station's offline mode
0x60 00 = off, 01 = on 60 00 Set "alarm preparation mode" on/off. When ON, all panel buttons trigger DAK 4.
0x61 00 = static relay, >00 = pulse length 61 00 Select light relay type: Static or pulserelay.
0x62 00 = none, 01 = type1 62 01 Select offline mode operation type. Required for offline mode operation.
0x63 63 02 00 00 00 Configure general inputs. One byte for each input. Select inverted input (bit0) and alarm-trigger input (bit1)
0x64 64 A0 08 00 23 Configure Scream alarm detector. Volume level (00=set default), min scream-time (00=set default), max scream-time, min pause before re-enabling alarm. Times in 100ms resolution. (Note: Parameters are not saved to EEPROM, and lost when the station is moved).
0x65 65 0960 Set guard alarm timeout. Value is 16-bit, 100ms resolution. Max value = 0x199A (11 minutes).
0x66 66 00 Select front-panel key types: Capacitive sensor-key (0) or switch input (1). Each bit represents one key (bit0 = light-button, bit1 = callrequest, bit2 = program, bit3 = vol up, bit4 = vol dn).
0x67 67 00 0A Configure keyswitch inputs: Static switches (00) or toggle-switches (01). Delay after activation in 100ms resolution.
0x68 68 06 Set default volume override level (selected by messages 0x23/0x24). Min=00 Max=06.
0x70 None 70 Restore EEPROM defaults.


Examples:
$DSPL L%1.dir U2 6100 '' : Set light relay to static mode
$DSPL L%1.dir U1 23 '' : Volume override ON

Note:
The parameters are followed by two single apostrophes ('). Closing single quotation marks (‘…’) are not valid. A text editor like Word (and others) tends to convert apostrophes to single quotation marks, which will not work.

Volume Override

When using the PrisCom database and a conversation is established, the volume set by the user is overridden, and a preset volume is used. The preset volume is defined by the display data command 0x68. By default set to maximum ($DSPL L%1.dir U2 6806'').

The volume override ON is set by the display data command 0x23 when the conversation starts ($DSPL L%1.dir U1 23''), and the volume override OFF is set by the command 0x24 when the conversation ends ($DSPL L%1.dir U1 24'' ).

If the preset override volume is too loud, the following event can be modified:

Owner:    Event:                   Change to:
UDP 2     13-Faulty station line   OFF

In the "Action field" find the line:

  • $DSPL L%1.dir U2 6806'', and change 06 to a value 00-05. The value 00-06 sets what volume level to use when volume override is activated.


If volume override is not wanted at all, one can delete the line $DSPL L%1.dir U1 23'' from the "Conversation Incoming ON" event.

Changing the privacy setting

By default the Prison Stations are set in privacy mode. This means that a guard can’t call directly into the cell, but the prisoner has to accept the call by pressing the call button.

To change the station to operate in Open mode, the following event must be modified:

Owner:    Event:                   Change to:
UDP 2     13-Faulty station line   OFF

In the "Action field" find the line:

  • $SNV Q55 W5 W8 W%1.phy W17 (Prison stations in Private mode)

Change into:

  • $SNV Q39 W5 W8 W%1.phy W17 (Prison stations not in Private mode)


Changing Offline mode operation

The cell station operates in both "online" mode when connected to AlphaCom and "offline" mode when connection is lost and only 24V power is used. In this mode the external lamps are used for status signalling. This operation is mostly hardcoded in the station. In case the station is used in an installation where offline mode operation should be turned off or changed, the following event can be modified:

Owner:    Event:                    Change to:          
UDP 2     13 Faulty station line    OFF

In the "Action field" find the line:

Change into:

  • $DSPL L%1.dir U2 6200 '' (Offline operation turned off)

Note: In current station software v1.02 there is only one available offline operation mode: 01. Other modes may be added in the future.

Changing Guard Presence timeout-alarm

When a guard marks his presence in a cell by turning the keyswitch to position 2, an alarm timeout is activated (no timeout for keyswitch position 1). The value of this timeout can be adjusted in the event handler.

The following event must be modified:

Owner:    Event:                   Change to:  Related to:    
UDP 2     15-Event trigger         ON          9554

Modify this action command:

  • $ST L%1.dir W2400 L9554

The value “W2400” is in 100ms resolution, which gives a 240 seconds (4 minutes) timeout. Change to desired value. Value is in decimal format.


Changing Sensor Key sensitivity

By default the sensor buttons are set for high sensitivity, making it possible to operate the station with sanitary or latex gloves.

If the station is located in an area with high humidity, for instance just outside a shower area, there is a risk that the station could generate ghost calls. It is possible to change the sensor buttons to a lower sensitivity. The side effect is that gloves cannot be used to trigger calls.

The following event must be modified:

Owner:    Event:                   Change to:      
UDP 2     13-Faulty station line   OFF

Modify this action command:

  • $DSPL L%1.dir U2 6600 '' (High key sensitivity)

into:

  • $DSPL L%1.dir U2 661f '' (Low key sensitivity)

Pulse relay instead of static relay for Relay Control output

By default the Relay Control output (connector P1/5 and P1/6) is configured as a static relay changing on/off each time the “light” button on the prison station is pressed. This can be changed to a pulse relay operation if such a relay is used.

The following event must be modified:

Owner:    Event:                   Change to:      
UDP 2     13-Faulty station line   OFF

Modify this action command:

  • $DSPL L%1.dir U3 6100 '' (Static relay)

into:

  • $DSPL L%1.dir U3 610A '' (Pulserelay, 10*10ms pulsetime)

The parameter "0A" to the display data command 0x61 in the string above defines the pulsetime in 10ms resolution. Value is in hex format.


If pulse relay is used, the state of the light (on or off) is unknown and some events should be modified accordingly. Some action lines should be deleted. They are highlighted by green color in the following event handler description.

Scream Alarm

The display data command 0x64 is used to set the level and duration necessary to trigger the scream alarm.

0x64 <volume level> <min-time> <max-time> <pause> [mode]	

Default command is 64 A0 08 00 23, the values are in hexadecimal.

  • Volume level is the trigger level 00-FF, A0 is default. See table below.
  • Minimum scream time = 08 Default (800ms). Noise must be present this long to trigger an alarm
  • Maximum time = 00 default (optional). Noise longer than this do not trigger an alarm. Can be used to surpress alarms caused by sudden background noise which is present for a long time (longer than specified in this parameter).
  • Pause is minimum time for re-enabling alarm is default 23 (= 3500ms)
  • Mode is an optional parameter, available from station software 01.02. 00=Scream alarm only in "alarm preparation mode". 01=Scream alarm from idle.

The scream alarm is triggering DAK 19, and for testing the DAK key can be programmed to “I 101” or similar.

The default behavior of the Prison Station is that the scream alarm is active only when the station is in "alarm preparation mode" (controlled by display data command 0x60), i.e. when the guard is present by turning the key switch in position 1 or 2.

For special applications it is possible to enable scream alarm also from idle:

  • $DSPL L%1.dir U6 64A008002301 '' : Enable scream alarm from idle
  • $DSPL L%1.dir U6 64A008002300 '' : Enable scream alarm only when in "alarm preparation mode" (Default)


Relation between sound pressure and the programmed scream alarm volume:

Volume
(00-FF)
Sound Pressure
(dBA, +/-3dB)
40 74
50 77
60 80
78 83
90 86
A8 89
C0 92
D0 95
E0 98
F0 101

Example: $DSPL L%1.dir U5 6478080023 '' will set the scream alarm level to 78 (83 dBA).

Event Handler programming

This paragraph describes the event handler programming used in the PrisCom database.

The use of UDD variables

User Defined Data (UDD) are variables which can be used to store status information. In the PrisCom database the physical number of the station is used as index for the UDD. If there is a need to use additional UDD's in the database, one must avoid using index numbers in the same range as the physical numbers for the Prison Stations. In order to store several statuses in one UDD a bitmask is used - one word per station:


Bit (value) Description
11 (2048) (Not used)
10 (1024) Call request mode / tamper call
9 (512) Guard present
8 (256) Light status on
7-0 (Not used)

Examples of using UDD's:

  • Read: %udd(%1.phy) will return the content of the UDD
  • Write: WUDD %1.phy 3 will write the value 3 in the UDD

Private Ringing start

When the Prison station starts to ring, and the station already has made a Call Request or the Guard is already present (Key Switch in pos.1 or 2), then autoanswer is triggered (simulating M-key press), and the converation is automatically established. If no autoanswer (still ringing), a flag is set to prevent the call button from triggering the call lamps when the button is pressed to answer the call.

Initialization of stations. DAK redirection

When the prison station is reported up (e.g. after a system restart), this event will send configuration data to the station using the $DSPL command. The event will also, with an IF statement, check if the station is already configured as a Prison station in the AMC by checking the station flags2 bits for Two-tone signaling and audio program display. If not already configured with these settings, they will be applied, and the DAK key 1 will be programmed to ">501" and DAK 2 to ">502".
