Voice Alarm System Amplifier


The VM-3240VA Voice Alarm System Amplifier is a multifunction amplifier that comes with audio inputs including a background music input, and a speaker output section which has an internal attenuator and a 6-output selector. It permits not only general-purpose broadcast, but also Emergency broadcast which gives pre-recorded instructions in an emergency situation. Emergency broadcasts can be made from am optional RM-300MF Fireman's Microphone as well as from the amplifier, and can be remotely controlled from external equipment. In addition, the unit features a surveillance function which automatically checks the system for failures.
