My client is a school with a large old Bogen 70V zoned 2 way paging system that they want to replace. The company that originally installed it (and has the only schematics) won't touch it and only want to sell them something new. I am against it since for the most part it works pretty good. I feel a bit of maintenance would be sufficient. They are asking for 3 bids so I need to stay in the game. One of the main issues is the tone ringers that they schedule classes with. I am at a loss on what to offer them. Normally I do Valcom for paging, but have never had to integrate timed signalling for a minimum of 6 schedules they can easily select. Oh, and they want to tie it into the phone system. I am proposing a TDE200 for the telcom side.

Any clues would be appreciated.

VIKING has at least 1 time clock/tone generator that might be what you need.

Ditto....The Viking units are very reliable, easy to program and they have great tech support. We have used the CTG-1 out there---we haven't had a chance to put a CTG-2 anywhere, yet. For us it's been--put them in and forget them.

From their website : "The CTG-1 can be programmed to output single, double or triple alert tones with up to 128 events in a 24 hour period. These bong/buzzer sounds are ideal for indicating the start and end of shifts, break times, lunch periods, etc. for factories, schools, or any business.."

we have a Latham time clock here at work that sends tones for shift change over the paging system.

I like Viking stuff too but I read it as a single day with 128 events. They want to have 6 different schedules to toggle between depending on day of the week. Am I interpreting this wrong? Is the Latham clock capable of this?

The Lathem is the same as the Viking it only has one circuit but a lot more programs. You could have each day be different schedule but not 6 different schedules to choose from. The Allsync can have up to 6 different circuits with different programs.

If it was built in the last 10 years don't expect it to work right.

Thanks Guys for all the help!
Now I have enough information to try to nail them down to what they REALLY want and can afford.

You can also used a PC-based software solution, e.g.
