GEnSAC3 enables the operation of a Gold, Gold Elite or MCC 5500 console without a T1

Through a collaborative effort between Motorola field engineers and Genesis, customers can now display IDs and Emergency calls on Centracom Gold, Gold Elite or MCC 5500 Operator Positions, without connection to the Embassy Switch. GEnSAC3 addresses a number of common issues:

  • The need to connect a Centracom Gold / Gold Elite CEB or a MCC 5500 CES
  • Embassy Switch has run out of resources and a T1 is too costly
  • No PTT-ID or emergency notification when displaying with a control station
  • The need to put a console in a Mobile Command Center

How It Works

GEnSAC3 comes loaded on a PC with 8, 16 or 32 COM ports (one for each talkgroup). Connect a 3600 or 9600 RF-modem into the GEnSAC3 PC. Contact Genesis for specific RF-modem information. Then, connect one cable for each talkgroup from the GEnSAC3 PC COM ports to each ACIM card in the CEB (Central Electronics Bank). Note: ACIM cards may need to be added to the CEB. In a very simple setup on the GEnSAC3 PC, map the desired talkgroups to the correct ACIM. GEnSAC3 decodes incoming Control Channel data. Individual ID and Emergency Call information for each talkgroup that is setup in GEnSAC3 is sent out to the appropriate ACIM. The Motorola Console then displays the ID that is talking and whether the call is normal or an emergency.

To get the best, total profile of existing dispatch hardware and a complete list of any needed components, contact Genesis or an authorized Motorola sales engineer for assistance.

Note: Existing installations with ASTRO® 25 control stations connected to an existing ACIM will need to reconfigure installations so the cables from the GEnSAC3 COM ports can be plugged into the ACIM P6 port for each talkgroup. Control stations will use the AUX I/O for keying.
