A component of the Classic system, the TPAM-24V telephone paging access module provides a means of interfacing various analog telephone port types to a paging system amplifier to enable a facilities telephone system to be used to make audio announcements over its paging system. The TPAM -24V will interface to analog loop start and ground start trunk ports as well as analog ring-up station lines. The equipment provides a means of connecting an external audio or music source that will play over the paging system when no pages are in progress.
A set of contacts are provided to signal external equipment of the TPAM-24V operational status. Various DIP switches and controls provide a wide range of flexibility over how the access module will operate.
