500, Digital Communication System, is a digital telephone system designed for small to medium–sized businesses. This manual provides an overview of the Samsung iDCS 500, Digital Communication System, including system structure and hardware, features and facilities and specifications. This guide consists of the following chapters.
Programming GENERAL DESCRIPTION The SAMSUNG iDCS 500 (Digital Communications System) is a digital telephone system designed for small to medium-sized businesses. It can operate with the functionality of a square key system, PABX or a combination of both (hybrid). The DCS employs DSP (Digital Signal Processors) digital technology.
Chapter 1 Introduction To System SIZE AND CONFIGURATION The iDCS 500 is a fully modular system comprised of a single cabinet configured as a Key Service Unit, up to two additional cabinets, interface cards and electronic keysets. A fully expanded system using the TEPRI cards can have a maximum of 352 lines or 360 stations.
Two Cabinet System When it is required that the basic system be expanded to provide a capacity greater than that described above, the Signal Control Processor (SCP) card must be installed in slot nine of the first cabinet. This card provides an intermediate level of processing to control the first cabinet therefore freeing resources on the Main Control Processor (MCP) to control the entire system.
Chapter 1 Introduction To System Three Cabinet System In a fully expanded three cabinet system, there are 26 universal card slots (see Figure 1–3). This allows a maximum of 360 stations or 352 lines when using TEPRI cards. Without TEPRI cards, the maximum number of lines is 208 and the maximum number of stations is 360.
TECHNOLOGY Memory The system operates using stored program control. This program is stored on a SmartMedia card inserted into the Main Control Processor card (MCP) and contains a minimum of eight Megabytes of NAND-Flash memory. Optional, larger capacity, SmartMedia cards are also available to provide a backup customer database and a backup operating program.
Chapter 1 Introduction To System PROGRAMMING The iDCS 500 is a self-configuring system. This means that immediately after applying power, the iDCS 500 reads the types and locations of all installed interface cards and keysets and assigns default data to them. This data provides for system operation within a few minutes after applying power. All trunks and stations are assigned three or four digit numbers according to the settings of the switches on the MCP card and the default numbering LAN.
Chapter Hardware Descriptions This chapter describes the hardware of the iDCS 500 system as follows. System Cabinets Common Control Cards Interface Cards Station Equipment SYSTEM CABINETS The cabinets that make up the iDCS 500 system are of metal construction and may be utilized as either as an expansion cabinet or as a main cabinet / key service unit (KSU).
Chapter 2 Hardware Descriptions COMMON CONTROL CARDS PROCESSOR CARDS The iDCS 500 requires a processor card or cards in order to operate. In a single cabinet iDCS 500 system, only one processor card, the Main Control Processor (MCP), is required. When the system is expanded to two or three cabinets a second, Signal Control Processor (SCP), is required for the main cabinet to assist the MCP and each expansion cabinet requires its own Local Control Processor (LCP).
Switch Control Processor (SCP) The Switch Control Processor (SCP) is installed in slot 9 of the KSU and reduces the available universal card slots to eight. The SCP card is required when the system is to be expanded beyond a single cabinet.
Chapter 2 Hardware Descriptions PROCESSOR CARD DAUGHTER BOARDS There are seven types of daughter board that fit on the various processor cards. Some daughter boards will only work on the Main Control Processor (MCP) and the rest will work on any processor card.
Multi-Frequency Module (MFM) The MFM Module installs in any position of any of the processor cards. The main purpose of the RCM daughter board is to provide DSPs for DTMF and tone detection. The receivers are also used for DID trunks, E&M trunks, DISA, DNIS and ANI. Twelve (12) channels for DTMF Receiver and tone detection.
Chapter 2 Hardware Descriptions SMARTMEDIA CARDS An iDCS 500 system must have a SmartMedia card installed in the main control processor (MCP) as the SmartMedia card contains the system operating software. The SmartMedia card can also be used to store a backup customer database to supplement the database stored on the MCP card. In addition the SmartMedia card can store backup copies of the operating software for the SCP, LCP, TEPRI, and LAN cards.
INTERFACE CARDS These cards provide the interface connections for telephone lines and stations to the KSU and expansion cabinets. These cards fit into the universal card slots to configure the system as required. iDCS 500 interface cards are encased in a static dissipative ABS plastic shell to protect the PCB during handling.
Chapter 2 Hardware Descriptions STATION CARDS This card is an eight circuit digital station interface card that provides 2B+D service when installed in any universal card slot in all cabinets. 16DLI This card is a sixteen circuit digital station interface card that provides 1B+D service when installed in any universal card slot in all cabinets.
16MWSLI This card is a sixteen circuit analog station interface for industry standard single line telephones that require operation of an industry standard message waiting lamp with a voltage range of 85 ~ 96 VDC. The lamp can be programmed to be on continuously or flash at a programmable rate of 100ms to 2000ms ON/OFF times.
