ASL Analog Partyline Systems

 

ASL Analog Partyline systems have a proven track record of reliable operation in the most demanding live production, event management, broadcast and industrial applications. The equipment range meets every need, from single-channel systems with only three or four user stations to highly complex, multi-channel systems with multiple speaker stations as well as wired beltpacks. Regardless of system size, all ASL Analog partylines are easy to install and simple to operate. Perhaps most importantly, all will provide reliable and highly intelligible voice communications, even after years of hard use in stressful work environments.

 

The ASL Analog partyline currently comprises both the Basic Series and Pro Series of single and multi-channel systems, and a wide range of Accessories.

 

 

 

Pro Series

 

The ASL Pro Series offers comprehensive and highly flexible systems solutions for full duplex, party-line communications. The Pro Series can accommodate multiple channels, very large user station counts, and both wired and wireless user stations. Though extensive configurations are possible, all interconnections are based on standard balanced microphone cable (XLR-3 connectors), and installation requires no expert knowledge. Clear layout of controls makes operation essentially foolproof, even in under time pressures and in low light environments. Exceptional build quality and careful quality control assure reliable performance for many years.

Pro Series Features:

  • System Frequency Response 200 Hz to 15 kHz.
  • Proprietary Frequency Correction for enhanced intelligibility.
  • Electronic Switching
  • Beltpacks in lightweight PC/ABS or durable aluminum casings.
  • Dynamic or Electret microphones may be connected (phantom power standard).
  • Adjustable Mic Gain for headset microphone.
  • Limiter for gooseneck microphone.
  • High Power Headphone Amplifiers (1.3 W  nominal @ 200 ohms).
  • Automatic Headset Detection. The mic pre-amp is active only when a headset is connected.
  • Optional XLR-6 Binaural Headset Connector on multi-channel stations. Internal jumpers allow routing each intercom channel to either the left, or the right or both headset cans.
  • Volume Controls, to listen to each channel at  any desired volume  and to balance levels among channels on multi-channel stations.
  • TALK buttons, latching or momentary, with large LED indicators to talk to all user stations on the indicated channel.
  • CALL buttons with large LED indicators to call all user stations on the indicated channel. Keeping a CALL button pushed for more than two seconds activates an internal buzzer.
  • Buzzer Volume Trimmer on each user station.
  • Side Tone Trimmer for each channel, to adjust the level of the operator’s voice as heard through his own headset or loudspeaker.
  • Mic Mute Function on Master Stations and Power Supply Units allowing to temporarily mute the microphones on all connected user stations.
  • Buzzer Mute Function on Master Stations and Power Supply Units allowing to mute the buzzers on all connected user stations.
  • Auxiliary Program (AUX) Input. Power Supply Units and Master Stations offer a balanced auxiliary input with “ground lift” switch, to insert the auditorium or on-air program audio.
  • Local Program Input with volume control on some of the user stations.
  • Switch-mode Power Supplies. In case of short circuit or excessive thermal condition, the power supply automatically shuts down. Once the fault is corrected, it automatically resets and restores normal operation.
  • DC Input on Master Stations and the PS 289 Power Supply allows connection to an external DC  power supply, should 110/240 V mains power not be available, or battery backup power be required.
  • System Link on Master Stations and the PS 289 Power Supply Unit. Allows connection to another ASL system, without using power from the other system.

Basic Series

 

 

The Basic Series provides a cost-effective solution for more limited applications that require full duplex, party line communication. All interconnections are made with standard, balanced micro- phone cable with XLR-3 connectors. Installation requires no expert knowledge, and clear layout of controls assures trouble-free operation with a very short learning curve. A current-driven interconnect loop ensures that operator listening levels do not change as stations are added to or removed from the network.

Basic Series Features:

  • System Frequency Response 200 Hz to 15 kHz
  • Durable, lightweight PC/ABS beltpack
  • Visual and audible call system, with volume trimmer
  • Accepts dynamic or electret microphones (phantom powering standard)
  • Separate TALK and CALL functions, each with LED indicators
  • Auto-resetting switch-mode power supplies
  • Proprietary frequency correction for enhanced intelligibility
  • Automatic headset detection
  • Auxiliary program input

 

Features in Detail

 

Headphone Amplifiers – High-quality, push-pull headphone amplifiers contribute to a system frequency response of 200 Hz to 15 kHz (-3 dB) and a dynamic range of 80 dB. Output is 700 mW @ 200 ohms. A proprietary frequency contouring circuit optimizes voice range reproduction to ensure exceptionally high intelligibility even in high ambient noise environments.

 

Headset Connections – Both the Master Station and beltpack accept either dynamic or electret microphones as standard. Mic gain is adjustable for optimum results with any microphone. A headset detection circuit ensures the mic pre-amp is active only when a headset is connected. A volume control enables the user to listen at any desired volume, and to balance levels on the two channels of the BS 217 Master Station.

 

Side Tone – Each user station includes a side tone trimmer for each channel to allow adjustment of the operator’s voice level as heard through his or her own headset.

 

Switch-mode Power Supplies – –  In case of short circuit or excessive thermal condition, the power supply will self-protect by shutting down. Once the fault is corrected, the power supply automatically resets and restores normal operation.

 

TALK Function – TALK button with green LED indicator connects to all user stations and beltpacks on the indicated channel.

 

CALL Function – – The combined audible and visual CALL alert adapts to both sound- and light-sensitive environments. An incoming or outgoing call signal is indicated by a large red LED. Pushing the CALL button for more than two seconds activates the internal BUZZER. Volume of the BUZZER can be trimmed or muted.

 

AUX INPUT – The 2-channel Master Station (BS 217) and the 2-channel Power Supply (BS 287) each offer a balanced auxiliary input (individually attenuated for each channel), normally used to carry the auditorium or on-air program audio. The inputs are for line level signals.
