The PA-IP by Viking Electronics is a paging adapter that interfaces directly with hosted and on-premise VoIP SIP phone systems.
It is designed for single zone and multicast paging, as well as interfacing with analog amplifiers and speakers.
“The PA-IP is easy to install and easy to operate. Following the tradition of our popular PA-2A paging amplifier, we have once again brought a cost effective solution to the paging market,” says Bill Heideman, president, Viking Electronics.
The PA-IP connects to a PoE switch with a single RJ45 Ethernet connection and can be programmed as an end point device, as well as part of a multicast paging group for zone paging.
Background music, emergency notifications and school bell/break tones can play through the PA-IP while giving priority to voice paging.
The loud ringing/night bell trigger input can alert employees in noisy areas of a phone call and can also be used for signaling after-hours calls.
The adapter has an amplified output capable of powering five additional 8-Ohm analog ceiling speakers and a line-level output for connecting to an existing amplifier or self-amplified speakers.
Network downloadable firmware and auto-provisioning software is available from the Viking Electronics website and will keep the PA-IP up to date and operating effectively, according to the company.
A security code that protect against unauthorized paging can be activated using the auto-provisioning software. The programmable on-board relay can be used to trigger lights, cameras, door strikes, gate motors and more.
