Master Controller IDA8 is a third-generation of modular system that complies with current architectural demands requiring IP and/or fibre-optic networking to allow for event the most complex of system designs. IDA8C responds to Public Address and Voice Alarm requirements as stated in EN54-16, with specific attributes for compliance in large installations.
IDA8C

The IDA8C is EN54-16 certified for use on Public Address and Voice Alarm systems. All system components and peripherals are monitored. This monitoring extends from the capsule microphone to the end of a loudspeaker line. The external cables connected to the control inputs are monitored for short and open circuit and an internally generated pilot tone is available for monitoring impedance on the loudspeaker lines.

The IDA8C controller houses advanced audio digital processing (DSP), matrix control functions and a digital message player with front panel access for a fully monitored fireman's microphone and emergency trigger buttons. IDA8C also support amplifier monitoring with hot-swap amplifiers and loudspeaker line impedance monitoring.  

One IDA8C supports to connect to a maximum of 31 slave units via Ateis-Net. The slave units are available as single zone (IDA8S) or with A/B speaker line configurations (IDA8SAB), or for low-impedance monitoring (IDA8SAL). The LCD touch screen panel on IDA8C gives the operators to see a detailed overview of the operational status of the entire system.
