PortaCom PGM-2000 overview

  • 1Description

The PortaCom PGM-2000 2-Channel Program Insertion Station from Anchor Audio Home is designed for use with the PortaCom intercom system. This program insertion station provides the means to insert a program audio (from a tape player, mixer, or stage mic) onto the intercom line.

The front panel has the main operator controls including the Channel A/B switch, Power Indicator, and Program Level Setting. It also has connectors for the Intercom Line In, Program In, and Intercom Out.

The rear panel has 3 connectors including the Loop Thru for system connections and expansion, Normal A / Isolated C, and a balanced Intercom Line Out Only connection.


Note: Program cannot be inserted on isolated channel C unless a second PGM-2000 station is used in the system configuration.

PGM-2000 Front Panel Connections and Operation
Intercom Line In Connector: The 3-pin female XLR-type connector accepts intercom signals from the PC-2000 2-Channel Power Console. This is the standard input for the PGM-2000 station.

Program In Connector: The 1/4” phone connector accepts the line-level output from a mixer or tape player, and inserts that music / program material into the connected intercom system.

Intercom Out Connector: The 1/4” phone connector provides a line-level composite of the intercom signal as an output to connect to a recorder or a remote amplified speaker.

Channel A/B Switch: Select the channel (A or B) when the program material will be inserted in the system.

When using the Normal A / Isolated C output, no program material will be on this output when the channel switch is set to B position.

Program Level Setting Adjustment Screw: Adjust the volume level of inserted program material as heard on the intercom system. Turn clockwise to increase the volume of the program material and counter-clockwise for lower volume.

Power LED (Red): Indicator lights when power source is connected to the PGM-2000 station (There is no power on/off switch; power is supplied and controlled by the system’s PC-2000 2-Channel Power Console).

PGM-2000 Rear Panel Connections
Loop Thru Connector: It is a male XLR-3 connector, which along with the Intercom Line In Connector, forms a composite of the intercom signal and the inserted program material. This jack allows additional belt packs and/or branch boxes to be connected to the intercom system for normal operation.

Normal A / Isolated C Connector: It is a male XLR-3 connector. When the Channel Switch is set to A the output functions like a standard intercom output (of the intercom material). No program material from the system will be inserted into this output when the Channel Switch is set to B. Connect belt packs (via B3-2000 Branch Box) to this input for Isolated Channel C operation.

Intercom Line Out Connector: It is a transformer-balanced male XLR-3 connector that has the composite intercom signal and inserted program material for connection to an alternate location, recorder, or mixer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says Brings program audio into intercom system. We use two of these on our production truck so camera operators can hear program in their headsets as well as director commands. Also have a pgm-2000 in a flypack unit so sports announcers can hear each other in loud venues using double headsets w mics.
