The VM-3000 is an integrated system, incorporating a paging matrix/mixer with DSP, digital messaging, a priority microphone and zone-switchable power amplifier section. A GUI programming interface (MS Windows) provides setup and configuration via Ethernet. Designed to target small to medium sized applications such as schools, office buildings, industrial facilities and shopping centers, the VM-3000 can expand to cover as many as 60 paging zones with a maximum of 2000 Watts for Mass Notification and can broadcast announcements and background music. It can also be integrated with various fire alarm control panel and life safety systems, redundant power, speaker line-supervision and includes multi-level priority override from local or remote paging sources. Already bearing the European EN 54-16 certification, the VM-3000 and its associated products, including power supplies, now carries the UL 2572 and CAN/ULC-S576 certification, which complies with new NFPA 72 code governing Mass Notification Systems.
Upgrading an existing fire alarm system to a Mass Notification System can be achieved by adding the VM-3000 with TOA’s UL 1480 UUMW and ULC-S541 listed loudspeakers.
