Networkable PAVA system - EN54-16


The IDA8S(AB) Slave units provide audio in- and output expansion of the IDA8 Systems using a secured 48-channel audio and data network over CAT5 or fiber optic. Each IDA8S(AB) expands the IDA8 System with an additional 8 audio inputs and outputs, 2 additional security microphone consoles (PSS-AS) and security programmable switching contacts.

The Network cards that can be ordered with the unit provide a redundant 48 channels audio and data connection, AteÏs-Net, between one controller and a maximum of 31 IDA8S Slave units in one rack system.
Alternatively, if a greater distance between devices is required, the existing RJ45 redundant connection can be exchanged for the optional Fiber optic NET-L3 cards increasing maximum distance up to 2 km between Controller unit and Slave unit or between Slave units.
The IDA8 Slave units come in two versions:
1. IDA8SAB, 8 balanced 0 dB audio inputs and 8 balanced 0 dB audio outputs, 2 security microphone access points, control inputs and outputs. Optional ATEÏS-Net Secured Audio Network cards are available. BS 5839 compliant with A/B zoning according to the BS5839-part8.
2. IDA8S, 8 balanced 0 dB audio inputs & 8 balanced 0 dB audio outputs, 2 security microphone access points, control inputs and outputs. Optional ATEÏS-Net Secured Audio Network cards are available..

IDA8C and IDA8S(AB) are featuring:

  • 8 analogue audio inputs and 8 analogue audio outputs.The outputs have selectable 18 or 20 kHz monitoring signal for end-off-line monitoring or, using defined monitoring windows, individual monitoring with an accuracy of up to 5% of the total line load.
  • 8 alarm control inputs and 8 output relays are freely programmable for system actions and priorities can be assigned to these inputs.
  • 2 card slots for optional 8 microphone/ line or AES/EBU audio input/output channels. These inputs/outputs are free software configurable.
  • Compatibility with the VNB IP-media streamers allowing for additional IP-Audio IN/EXstreamer units, IP-media consoles and IP-Paging consoles.
  • The ATEÏS Net Secured Audio Network that is providing a Single or Multi-mode, 48 audio channels, 32bit, 48kHz, redundant network.
  • Up to 256 priorities that can be configured for up to 256 zones (512 AB) in the LOCAL Network.
  • A system configuration that can connect up to 32 IDA8C with IDA8S(AB)’s over the LOCAL Network allowing a system configuration of up to 32 x 8 zones.
  • Independent operation without a PC connected to it.The PC can be disconnected after configuring the system.
  • Front panel color touch-screen display and corresponding push buttons, that allows for simple navigation through the various system menus.
  • Automatic messaging in the IDA8C Controller unit and IDA8S(AB) Slave units with a capacity of up to 1 hour of WAV format audio files. The audio messages can be uploaded via Ethernet link.
  • 4 audio streams that can be activated at the same time and up to 48 in the IDA8 System.
  • Message player and messages monitoring.
  • Full monitoring starting at the capsule of a microphone console to the end of a loudspeaker line. The external cables connected to the control inputs are monitored for short and open circuit and earth leakage.
  • Standard test, alarm and chime-tones are stored in the IDA8C Controller unit and IDA8S (AB) Slave units.
  • An internal real time clock for automatic scheduled activities like; playback of messages, automatic volume changes during day and night or background music settings.
  • Extensive audio pre and post processing possibilities for audio inputs and audio outputs.
  • A monitoring loudspeaker and fireman’s microphone on the IDA8C Controller unit.
  • Cost effective solutions using switching mode for multi-zoned amplifier usage.
  • Full system redundancy using the IDA8RU redundant switching devices.
