PTA12-100 Airborne Cockpit Telephone Dialer - Includes Installation Kit
Lead Time = 4 Week
The PTA12-100 Airborne Cockpit Telephone Dialer is a Dzus-mounted telephone interface with a full-function Touchtone keypad, 16-digit LED display, and an integrated 'phone book' that can store 16 numbers.
The PTA12-100 Airborne Cockpit Telephone Dialer uses the phone's 2 wire POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) interface to enable complete telecom control and standard DTMF (Dual Tone Multi Frequency) dialing capabilities. The interface allows the flight crew to use the phone system while keeping full headset functionality through the aircraft's audio panel.
A handset can be used in conjunction with the PTA12-100 to allow access to the cabin's satcom system. Many modern aerial telephone systems, such as Globalstar, Iridium, Inmarsat, and airborne cellular, can be used with the PTA12-100.
The PTA12- 100 has various field configurable parameters, including mic, sidetone, DTMF, and ringer output levels, and is designed to be installation flexible. The PTA12-100 is built to NAT's customary high standards, with a sturdy chassis, an aluminum bezel, and surface mount technology. For high reliability, the backlighting is LED, and it may be changed to match the illumination range of the aircraft's other avionics controls.
Hook Provides On/Off Hook function. A green LED illuminates to indicate an Off Hook condition. The LED also flashes to indicate an incoming call.
Hold Mutes the mic and phones audio to allow the pilots to converse without being overheard on the telephone. A green LED illuminates to indicate that this function is engaged.
Last Number Redial Remembers the last string of numbers dialed in case of busy signals or lost connections.
Flash Field selectable to either 90ms or 600ms, the Flash is used to provide functions such as call transfer or call waiting when supported by the telephone system.
Volume A digital volume control eliminates any mechanical devices for higher reliability. Using the Up and Down arrows, the volume level is adjusted and set to the desired level.
Ringer Functions The PTA12 has multiple ringer outputs. A ringer tone is generated on the phones output and/ or to an independent line. A separate discreet output is provided for use with optional tone generators such as sonalerts or piezo devices.
BRT LED display Brightness control.
ESC, ENTR, Up/Down These functions are used for Phonebook editing and selection.
