Controlling public address system

The basic input of the low frequency signal is an Ethernet interface with VoIP Protocol and the option of the simultaneous operation of two independent channels. The first channel is designed for connecting to the centralized announcement system, the second channel for local or remote access using VoIP phone. The other connecting options of the lowfrequency signal are the line input and the microphone input.

The parameter settings

All settings of analogue parameters (volume, heights, basses, levels of individual inputs and their priorities) are carried-out digitally. Detection of the current state, control and configuration are possible by website browser. Current operating states and information from the inner auto-diagnostics can be transmitted into the superior supervisory system by SNMP Protocol and it is possible to record the operation history by SYSLOG Protocol. The internal real time clock can be synchronized using the NTP protocol.

The main advantages of IP  public address system
