MIDIAN ELECTRONICS: Multi-format ANI and emergency ANI encoder
Midian Electronics' Automatic Number Identification products enable the dispatcher or system administrator to monitor fleet communications and to identify and stop system abusers. When the user keys up their radio the ANI module transmits a tone sequence or a digital packet. This sequence or packet can then be displayed on Midian's CAD, DDU, ADD and TRC series display decoders.
Midian's Automatic Number Identification modules also offer Emergency ANI that can be hooked to a switch on the radio or a mercury tilt switch. When the switch is activated the ANI module will send a sequence with an emergency status digit attached. The display decoder will then show an alarm indication for that unit.
The ANI products also offer features such as key-up delay, time-out timer and penalty timer. The key-up delay holds the ANI sequence from being sent for a preprogrammed period of time to allow CTCSS to go out and raise the repeater. The time-out timer feature stops someone from talking too long and tying up the channel or eliminates stuck-mic conditions. The penalty timer prevents someone from keying up again for a predetermined period of time after the user has timed out.
The ANI-F can be flashed into any of the following formats: Motorola's MDC-1200®, Kenwood's FleetSync®, Harris' G-Star™ (aka GE-Star), DTMF, 5-Tone (all formats), 2-Tone (all formats), burst tone, or POCSAG.
Automatic Number Identification products provide fleet management features that are beneficial to any radio fleet. This includes fleets such as taxi, towing and public safety. This product can also be used as an encoder to activate pagers, sirens and other equipment.
Midian Electronics offers the smallest ANI products in the industry. Due to their small size, they can be installed into most any radio. Midian also offers plug-in ANI modules for many current OEM radios.
