The audio evacuation equipment line allows a building block approach for adding voice/alarm signaling systems of varying sophistication levels to any occupancy.
The Voice Evacuation Control Panel (VECP) offers the capability of alert tones, prerecorded messages, and live voice messaging and provides a cost effective alternative for upgrading the fire alarm notification systems of assembly occupancies.
The DVS Series Voice Evacuation Control Panel is available in 25 watt and 50 watt models and is packed with standard features to enhance the voice evacuation package and to significantly increase the ease of installation. Diagnostic meter bars, plug-in terminal connections and an installer system test button make the DVS the most installer friendly panel on the market.
Our AU Series of Voice Evacuation Control Panels is customized to meet a customer`s specification. It includes 20 watt audio amplifiers that may be configured to provide hundreds of watts power and has options such as paging and telephone interfaces, floor above / floor below, distributor audio and many more options. The system flexibility allows customized configurations for all applications.
SigCom also offers a number of signaling devices designed for high ambient noise environments. Included are tone only horns, amplified (voice) speakers and high intensity strobes. Explosion proof versions are also available.
AUDIO EVACUATION EQUIPMENT
DVS-25 / DVS-50 Voice Evacuation Control Panel
The DVS Series Voice Evacuation Control Panel (VECP) contains a state of the art 25 or 50 watt high efficiency, digital power amplifier for use in life-safety applications. The DVS-25 and the DVS-50 are packed with options to enhance the voice evacuation package and to significantly increase the ease of installation.
Features such as the supervised internal microphone, low current draw, undistorted 25 or 50 Watt sine power, standard digital message unit and four speaker loop outputs make the DVS-25 or the DVS-50 the ideal choice for critical life safety applications. Sixty seconds of pre-recorded voice messages can be programmed into the digital message unit. These messages can be activated by either 24 VDC polarity reversing or dry-contact inputs.
A built-in auxiliary audio input allows the DVS to interface to telephone paging systems increasing the functionality of the system and adding to the value offered to the end-user. Additional non-fire emergency messages can be added to the system and used to alert building occupants of conditions such as weather alerts, chemical spills and gas leaks. Custom programmed messages and alert tones are also available.
Diagnostic meter bars, which indicate speaker load or signal levels on the audio channels, plug in terminal connections and an installer`s system test button make the DVS one of the most installer friendly panels on the market. SigCom`s intelligent overload protection feature limits the output power to a maximum preset level. This protects the panel without disconnecting the load and disabling the evacuation system.
AU-360 Series Voice Evacuation Control Panel
Safe evacuation of occupants in a building experiencing a fire is critical. In most buildings, the occupants receive audible notification of the existence of a fire from bells or horns strategically placed throughout the facility. From general life experience, occupants recognize these signals as an indication of a fire alarm and proceed to evacuate the building. However, in certain occupancies, the consensus is that verbal instructions provide a more appropriate means for notifying occupants of a fire and instructing them to leave the facility. In these occupancies, the verbal instructions are provided by Emergency Voice/Alarm Signaling Systems that are interconnected to the building`s fire alarm system.
Emergency Voice/Alarm Signaling Systems have been primarily utilized in high-rise commercial buildings or hotels. Various state and local building codes addressing fire and life safety issues are now requiring that emergency voice/alarm signaling systems be installed in areas of assembly occupancy, such as restaurants, movie theaters, playhouses, auditoriums, school gymnasiums, and churches. These are typically small areas located in larger buildings or are small stand-alone facilities. The sophisticated voice/alarm signaling systems typically interconnected to high-rise commercial buildings or hotel fire alarm systems are designed for large applications and offer more sophisticated features than required for these small occupancies. Their sophistication may make installation in smaller applications cost prohibitive.
The Audiosone product line offers a building block approach for adding voice/alarm signaling systems of varying sophistication levels to any occupancy. The Audiosone Voice Evacuation Control Panel (VECP), which offers the capability of alert tones, prerecorded messages, and live voice messaging, provides a cost effective alternative for upgrading the fire alarm notification systems of assembly occupancies.
Industrial Evacuation Solutions
AU-511 VCS Amplified Speaker
The AU-511-VCS Series is a line of amplified speakers for use in industrial paging and fire alarm evacuation applications located in high ambient noise environments. It is typically used to provide a high audio level in a localized area, without the need of running high power audio lines great distances. When used in conjunction with commercial speakers, speaker / strobes and high-intensity industrial strobes, the Audiosone system can form a total package to meet the requirements of all your industrial signaling applications.
The AU-511-VCS is capable of providing a high level of audio output power (up to 15 Watts) with very little (0.064 Watts) draw on the audio line. This allows over 300 amplified speakers to reside on a single 20 Watt speaker loop (4500 Watts of total power).
