|TOA will showcase the SX2000 Audio Management System at IIPSEC 2009|
The most sophisticated, integrated voice alarm and PA system ever offered by TOA
, the new SX-2000 Audio Management System, is a fully scalable, network-enabled product line that makes the distribution of BGM, paging, and emergency messaging across large buildings and multiple-site facilities easier than ever before.
With the SX-2000SM System Manager as its ‘hub', the range offers a variety of options designed to offer maximum flexibility in system design and installation, including multiple audio input and output units, fireman's microphone stations, and remote mic extensions. Minimum system configuration is eight inputs by eight outputs, and this expandable to a maximum of 64 inputs and 128 outputs, with as many as 776 control ins and outs and with 16 audio buses plus 2 emergency buses.
To provide absolutely failsafe operation, the SX-2000 can remain fully functional on DC power and offers both network and power-supply redundancy. It also offers an additional analogue backup facility. Malfunctions or failures in the system are detected within 100 seconds, generating both a display alert and an audible signal. At the same time, a failure log is created, transmitted via TCP/IP and can be stored on a connected PC. The system also constantly checks and measures speaker impedance values to guard against potential overloads or wiring errors.
"We all know that network-enabled PA/VA solutions are the future, and no product exemplifies this better than the SX-2000 Series," comments Brett Downing, Sales & Marketing Director, TOA Europe. "Being IP-based means the system can sit on either a Cat-5 copper infrastructure or a fibre-optic one, or on a combination of the two. This is particularly important when you consider the long distances that are often involved in today's multi-site installations - where several campuses in a university need to be connected together, for example."
TOA will showcase the SX2000 Audio Management System and many other leading audio products on stand 3B124 Integrated Systems Europe 2009 which takes place at the Amsterdam RAI, Netherlands, from 3-4 February 2009 as well as on stand 66 at IIPSEC 09 between January 27 - 29 2008 at Stoneleigh Park, Coventry, UK.
