The VX-3004F is a device designed to control the Voice evacuation announcements of TOA's VX-3000 Series rack-mount type voice evacuation system which is compliant with the European Standard EN54 for fire alarm systems. It has audio input terminals and can output the amplified audio signals to the speaker lines when the optional power amplifier modules are mounted.It is possible to make an Emergency Warning Broadcast assigned a higher priority than the Emergency broadcast. Two patterns of the Emergency broadcast can be activated simultaneously.Compatible with network, the system can be configured in distributed arrangement.Features include the following functions: Digital signal processing function that enables appropriate acoustic adjustment for individual input sound sources and output areas, Feedback suppressor function that automatically suppresses acoustic feedback when it occurs, VOX function that allows start/stop control of broadcast by way of an audio trigger, and ANC function that enables an ambient noise control. (The ANC function distinguishes between the unit's output sound and the ambient noise. The unit's output sound is not detected as noise.) Indicators that show such statuses as fault status and power amplifier signal status are provided.It has 4 speaker output channels, each of which is provided with A and B lines to enable duplication of the speaker lines. Up to 4 power amplifier modules can be mounted. The 4-channel amplifier can be used either for zone output or standby use. As the VX-3004F is equipped with Standby amplifier input/output terminal, the standby amplifier, when mounted, can be shared among VX-3000F units.
