The Universal Station: for Transcription and Dictation
 

Northeast Innovations Hint #14 - Using the Universal Station's Multi-Tone Feature

For System Commands that Require Multiple Control Tones

Description:

Normally, the Universal Station only sends one control tone per push of a foot pedal or hand microphone button (or hand microphone slide switch) and each function is mapped to a digit stored in memory location A0.

Beginning with software revision 3.36, the Universal Station has been equipped with a feature called Multi-Tone. With the Multi-Tone feature enabled, the station can send up to seven tones with each button push, making it useable with dictation and transcription systems that have been designed or programmed to require this.

This document describes how to program the Multi-Tone feature of the Universal Station. Before you begin, you may find it useful to review the basic programming information found in Hint #5 - Universal Station Programming Reference.
[Warning:]

Be aware that the Multi-Tone feature is only available in software revision 3.36 and above. The software revision is indicated on the label on the bottom of each Universal Station.

Materials Needed:

  • Northeast Innovations Universal Station Model 3006 or Model 3008
  • hand microphone or foot pedal

Procedure:

To enable the station to send more than one tone when a function on the hand microphone/foot pedal is activated, the station will need to be reconfigured by reprogramming the contents of memory location A93. To enable this feature:

  1. Turn the station off
  2. Press "A93"
  3. Press "#"
  4. Press "306D0010"
  5. Turn the station on
  6. Turn the station off

NOTE: This procedure assumes you are currently using the default value for memory location A93. If this is not the case, you can combine the above setting with your current A93 setting. Contact the factory if you are unsure how to do this.

Now the unit is configured to send more than one tone. Now, to program the series of tones that you wish to send when a particular function is actuated (i.e. when a button on the hand microphone/foot pedal is pressed), you will need to program memory locations according to the following chart:

Location Function
A83 STOP
A84 RECORD (DICT)
A85 PLAY
A86 FWD SPACE
A87 REWIND (B SPACE)
A88 SEC CORR
A89 LTR

You can program any of these functions to send up to seven (7) tones when the corresponding button is actuated. For example, to program the station to send the three-digit code "123" when the hand microphone switch is moved to "STOP":

  1. Turn the station off
  2. Enter the function code ("A83" for STOP)
  3. Press "#"
  4. Enter the code you wish to send ("123", for example)
  5. Turn the station on
  6. Turn the station off

The unit will now send the code "123" whenever the hand microphone switch is moved to "STOP".

Repeat this process for each function you wish to program with a tone or tones. Please note that the speed-dial memory locations A83-A89 will not be available while the Multi-Tone feature is enabled.
