Dubai: Eaton is pleased to announce two new products in its voice communications and alarm systems line. These include the powerful all-in-one DAU500 public address and voice alarm system (PAVA) with amplifier sharing capability and VoCALL 5 emergency voice communication system (EVCS).

The DAU500 is a compact wall-mounted voice system designed with efficiency in mind and can be centrally controlled via a simple touchscreen microphone. The system is certified to EN54-16 and can be installed to meet the requirements of BS5839-8.

Qasem Nouredddin, Sales Director, Life Safety Division, Eaton Middle East, said,
"The DAU500 all-in-one public address and voice alarm system is designed to be flexible. Whether it's a tall building or large site you need to cover, ease of system extension and networking capabilities ensure that you can meet your project requirements, whilst you ensure your building occupants will hear the broadcast message when it matters most".

The DAU500 system supports an amplifier sharing concept which typically results in fewer amplifiers being required to meet a voice system specification.

Using EF-HEXAPOD6 multiplexer modules, each amplifier can be cascaded to supply dual-channel audio streams to up to 6 speaker lines, meaning each DAU500 panel can be extended to supply the audio to 18 speaker lines in a phased evacuation application.

The DAU500 system can be installed standalone or networked and can be operated using an EF-FMTC touchscreen microphone, which can be programmed to control all 255 system-wide paging zones.

Powerful and flexible, DAU500 offers flexibility and optimization for a range of voice applications, large or small and now available for all markets across the Middle East.

VoCALL 5 is ideal for smaller installations that require up to 5 outstations or emergency assist alarms. The system comprises the Compact 5-line unit, which controls up to 5 outstations (Type A, Type B, Emergency Assist Alarms or, in regions which allow their use, roaming handsets and jack plates).

The standalone unit contains the systems master handset, power supply and connectivity for the 5 outstations. 20mm knockouts are provided for all system cabling, and the housing is of ample size to support 2x 5Ah back-up batteries (not supplied).

The unit is microprocessor controlled but requires no on-site programming; it is fitted with end of line resistors which are simply discarded when an outstation is connected, making installation quick and simple.

Qasem added, "Disabled refuge areas are required in buildings that are more than 1 storey high; however, for those smaller buildings such as hostels and boutique hotels, it may be difficult to find a suitable, small-scale emergency voice communication (EVC) system. Given that the VoCALL 5 has 5 lines and can connect up to 5 outstations, it is ideal for projects of this nature".

This simple panel design and cabling technique ensures simple and fast installation,  meaning that your project can be completed quickly using minimum resources.

VoCALL 5 is now tested and compliant with the requirements of EN54-4 & EN54-18 and available for all markets across the Middle East.
