CF Headset Pin-Out and schematic
« on: November 28, 2008, 14:41:23 »
I hope I'm posting this in the right area.

I was wondering if anyone has the wiring pin-out and tech specs of the new vehicle headsets that are used in the TCCCS. I need the difference in impedence between intercom and radio and how the downleads are wired. If anyone has that sort of information please PM me.

Thanks.

You may want to have them contact you via PM and then exchange DIN addresses to pass on info as to where to find the information you are asking for.

There's TCCCS speakers in the system, they come with a cable... what's the issue, perhaps I could offer help?

this may be hearsay but this is what I was told when we had a problem getting speakers Arcon 05, hopefully it has changed since then

the speakers were ordered 1 per CP and there are no new ones being ordered, and there is no way to order just the cable, so the 3 we had with NS/missing cables were useless. If you look at the connector it's a weird 3 prong BNC that is non standard so you can't build it with off the shelf parts. I was also told they were supposed to be non RF emitting and thus a lot more expensive.

Our solution of taping into a headset a mp3player earbud pluged into a laptop mic port was aggressivly poo pooed as well.

would like to hear if this is all poppycock or not.

Speakers are issued like CIs, the amount depends on the ECL of the vehicle and its associated comms list. It is incredibly difficult to find speaker cables if they're not attached to the speaker, we have a few cable-less speakers in Sig Stores at my unit. Never seen a cable for them, so they may have been tagged, sent away and disappeared into Kit Heaven.

Its a gucci item, so things like that tend to walk away at times. Not to say everyone in the CF has sticky fingers, but soldiers are soldiers.

Bringing my own post back from the dead.

Any LCIS tech's out there that can help me out with a schematic of the wiring for the Veh Mount 522?

I've spliced the PTT that supports Intercom and Radio into a standard NATO plug, but I can't get the headset to work. I've got the transmit down, I just can't seem to hear anything.

I'm going to plug this thing into a breadboard pretty soon. Any help would be great.

I can't wait until I can just off the shelf PTT's for the new PRC-152's! Yee haw, something that will actually work!

Cheers.

This is a bit of a necro-reply, but, regarding speaker cables, they shouldn't be that hard to order.  They have an NSN, just put in a request.  I have a bin full of speaker cables in my sigs stores at the unit, plus the two that are hardwired into the CP, all to support three speakers (2 in the CP, 1 spare).  Speakers on the other hand, have proven to be (so far) impossible to get.

What schematic exectly are you looking for?  The AN/VRC-513 itself, or just the vehicle headsets that work with them?  Your post mentions both.

Both would be nice.

What I really need at the moment, is the wiring between the headset and the PTT.

The wiring between the PTT and the radio connection is gravy.

Thanks.

It should be the same colour wires on either side of the PTT box, or at least that's how I read the schematic.
