ELTEC’s TC-2000 2-way paging and programmable time clock allows managing all your flashing beacons from one location, eliminating the need to send technicians/service personnel to sites to change or modify programs. The scheduling program for the entire school year including all exceptions is sent with one transmission. Because of this, our system unlike competitor’s systems, does not require a computer to be online and/or dedicated to the paging system.
After sending the command(s) the TC-2000 automatically returns an email message to the specified mailbox, confirming the programming was received. You can selectively interrogate any clock to verify status.
All TC-2000’s are equipped to be powered by either 120 VAC or 12 VDC (solar) and automatically comes with 2 relays.
The TC-2000 2-way paging and programmable time clock will maintain the date & time and control the operations of the signal heads & flashers through programs stored in its’ memory
The system consists of three items:

Programs are installed two ways. The options are:
Through the paging service, there are three programming options:
Note: An additional 2 inches of space in the cabinet beyond the length of the unit must be allowed for the CPC connector.
The 2-Way Pager/Programmable Time Clock may be 120 VAC or 12 VDC powered.
The DLPRO software will run on Windows 2000, XP or Vista operating systems. The software allows the user to print a hardcopy listing all programs and schedules of remote sites. It maintains a history of the last 500 messages/pages sent.
The clock stores only one email address to which the unit responds in the following ways:
Group Programming and Assignment: The software is capable is identifying 1-99 groups with each group containing multiple clocks. The unique group number assures that only the time clocks in a specific group will be paged. A menu box allows the user to view established group and/or units within the group. The user can also view the individual/unique annual program associated with each group. The annual program is considered the default plan for that group.
Annual Program: The system is capable of allowing for an annual program for each group defined. An annual program is defined by the school calendar which includes holidays, no school days and early dismissals. A group must have an annual program associated with it, and the annual program is the default program. The annual program includes start date, end date, group number and program number. The annual program will run indefinitely but is usually defined for a 12-month period. The annual program for each group may be copied from the annual master program to aid the user in program entry.
Location and Individual Unit Programming: Each group (see above) has the capability of accommodating up to 99 different programmable time clock location addresses. The programming of each site includes the location name, location type, group number and a unique ID number.
Alternate Program: An alternate program may include up to 15 steps. An alternate program includes the date that the program is to start and the date that it will end. An alternate program will operate from the scheduled start date and time through 12 AM/midnight of the end date.
Immediate Program: An immediate program may include up to 15 steps. An immediate program runs only on the date that the program is transmitted to the remote location. An immediate program will operate from the time that it is received until 11:59:59 PM of the same date.
Manual Control: The program allows the operator to take manual control of any group or unit of flashers through the DLPRO Software.
Email Confirmation: After a group or unit is paged, each unit will respond via email with an acknowledgement of what page (e.g. annual program, email address change, diagnostic, etc.) has been received. The operator identifies the units responding and compares the responding list against the transmission list. If a unit fails to respond, the operator then retransmits the message to that specific unit and the process is repeated.
