Table 3-1. Operator Controls, Indicators, and Connectors-Continued
Controls, indicators, or connectors
Position 5-Connects the internal error comparator to monitor the
alternate data and clock outputs.
Position 6 Connects the internal error comparator to monitor LOS/cable
receiver and decoder output.
Position 7-Same as position 4.
MANUAL/OFF/AUTO, three position toggle switch
MANUAL-Causes internal error comparator to sample input data and
synchronize comparator circuits.
OFF-Disables automatic mode.
AUTO-Activates automatic resynchronization of internal error
comparator when error rate measurement exceeds 25 percent.
Provides an output pulse from the internal error comparator for each bit
Provides a sync pulse from the internal 2047 bit sequence
(1/2047 of INPUT DATA RATE switch setting).
Provides the clock signal from the internal error comparator.
SYMBOL RATE thumbwheel switch

ON toggle switch
ON-Applies ac power to the PSK Modem.
Controls Behind Front Panel
Enabled by placing the TRANSMIT SOURCE switch in the
OPERATE position. Selects either the direct digital (standard) data input or the LOS/cable input for transmission over the link. Also
determines whether transmitter timing is derived from the input data
or an input clock.
STD-Selects the direct digital (standard) data input for transmission and
CLK-Selects the direct digital (standard) data input for transmission and
the direct digital clock input for timing derivation.
ICF-Selects the LOS/cable input for transmission and timing derivation.
DIFF ENCODE, two position toggle switch
DIFF DECODE, two position toggle switch
ON-Activates Differential Decoder in receiver.
OFF-Disables Differential Decoder in receiver.
