Production Caller ID Signal Simulator - Overview
The AI-80 is a fully programmable stand alone Caller ID signal generator designed for production environments. It is capable of generating signals for all FSK and DTMF based Caller ID standards. Includes general telephone signal analysis features and a highly flexible programming language for sophisticated and complex production testing sequences.

  • Type I (on-hook) & Type II (off-hook) Caller ID Signal Generation
  • Supports various international standards such as Telecordia (Bellcore), TIA, ETSI (European), BT, CCA, NTT (Japan)
  • Generates both FSK and DTMF based Caller ID
  • Single, Multiple, and Visual Message Waiting data formats
  • Measure telephone dialing and signaling characteristics
  • Programmable network tones (dial tone, stutter dial tone, busy, ring back)
  • Rugged and compact unit for stand alone operation
  • Develop custom test programs with included Windows 95, 98, NT4, 2000 based software
  • Optional analog & digital I/O module
  • Optional complex and external line impedances


  • Testing the Caller ID capability of telephony devices
  • Testing telephony signaling (dialing, network tone detection)
  • Creating small scale production ATE systems for telephony devices


  • TRsSim Software: AI-ST100
    Includes the basic version of the TRsSim software for presenting a high level graphical user interface with the AI-80. Provides a flexible means for generating ringing patterns, network tones, and viewing dialed DTMF & pulse digits. Functional Caller ID support is included for generating TIA, Telecordia, ETSI compliant FSK based signals, or ETSI DTMF based signals.

  • TRsSim: SM-SC Emulation: AI-ET001
    Support for SM Service Center Emulation is an optional component to the TRsSim software. It allows for testing of a SMS capable TE to either the ETSI ES 201 912 protocol 1 or protocol 2 standard. Short messages are both received by the SM-TE or can be sent to the SM-TE. Designed as a testing tool, the software allows complete control over the DLL (data link layer) and TL (transfer layer) messages for exception condition testing.

  • TRsSim: Advanced Caller ID: AI-ET002
    Support for the Advanced Caller ID functions is an optional component to the TRsSim software. It expands the basic Caller ID capabilities to include more flexible control over the physical layer settings (FSK, DTMF, impairments, signaling & timing) and message layer settings (channel seizure bits, mark bits, message encoding, checksum encoding, mark out bits).

  • Complex Line Impedance: AI-E801
    Extends the selection of telephone line impedances to include a complex impedance in addition to the standard 600 ohm and 900 ohm impedances. The complex impedance is restricted to one of the following values:
    • 220 ohm + (820 ohm || 115 nF)
    • 270 ohm + (750 ohm || 150 nF)
    • 370 ohm + (620 ohm || 310 nF)

  • Analog & Digital I/O Module: AI-E802
    This optional module provides a number of expanded capabilities. Applications include small scale ATE systems, where by the AI-80 can control and measure signals via the analog and digital I/O ports. The optional module provides the following functionality:
    • Audio Input Port
    • Audio Output Port
    • Digital Output Port(s)
    • Digital Input Ports(s)
    • Asynchronous Serial Communications Port
    • Pulse Generation and Timing Port
    • DC Voltage Measurement

  • Bell 202, V.23 FSK Decoder: AI-E804
    Adds the capability to receive and decode FSK modulated serial data. Captures up to 700 bytes of asynchronous serial data encoded by either Bell 202 or V.23 FSK signal. Used in testing two-way FSK applications such as ADSI and SMS.

  • Additional One Year Warranty: AI-K001
    The standard product support and warranty period for the instruments is one year. This option increases the parts and labor warranty period for another year to a total of two years from date of purchase on the instrument.

  • Additional Three Warranty: AI-K003
    The standard product support and warranty period for the instruments is one year. This option increases the parts and labor warranty period for three more years to a total of four years from date of purchase on the instrument.
