I need to add a signal for start and stop breaks and lunch time to an existing Valcom page installation. The Valcom is self-amplified horns with a V-2001A page control, with inputs from the KSU and the music source.

I think the Viking CTG-1A clock and tone generator would fit the bill, but I've never used it before. One thing I noticed in the documentation is that the daylight savings time switch must be manually changed. Not a deal breaker, though.

Does it sound right to connect the tone generator along with page output from the KSU to the page control?

Happy New Year.

Get a hold of the docs for the V2001-A. If I remember correctly, this unit has alert and clock tone features already built in.


Sometimes the thoughts in my head get so bored, they go for a stroll through my mouth. This is rarely a good thing.

Hi Jim...

I installed the older CTG-1 on a Sprint system years also and the customer was very happy with it. They never complained about switching DST because it was so easy! I just followed the installation direction and B-I-N-G-O! it was done...no surprises.

Thanks guys. JBean, I think the V2001-A has the tones, but needs a contact closure for the alerts. Hence the need for the clock/tone generator.

After my original post, I realized I was confusing two of my customers. The one that needs the break timer does not have the V2001-A controller. Can I just attach the CTG-1A to the same pair as the page audio going to the horns? Or must I have a controller between them so they play nice together?

The product manual, page 3, has you use the on board relay to switch the input to to your horns from the phone system to the CTG
