The PAVIRO public address and voice evacuation system from Bosch now offers users new hardware and software features for enhanced usability and for use in larger applications. Using IP technology, PAVIRO provides a flexible, reliable and secure system solution with high audio quality and low latency. As installers can use existing networks in the building infrastructure, relying on IP technology also results in faster installations and lower implementation costs.
PAVIRO can be interconnected with other devices such as PCs or laptops, allowing for efficient remote control, diagnostics and maintenance via the Internet.
The PAVIRO public address and voice evacuation system functionality and connectivity is achieved via the newly released Dante network interface module (OM-1) from Bosch. Now it is possible to create a 16 channel Dante audio network between the individual controllers. The IP network architecture allows users to create multi-controller network topologies for larger areas via up to four decentralised controllers. This also means less cabling: a cost-saving factor in some applications.
At the maximum configuration level, the PAVIRO system can now address up to 984 zones with a total of 164,000 watts of amplification in one system. It also caters for existing installations whenever the infrastructure of a building changes and additional rooms need to be covered. In addition, the network configuration provides redundant channels for safety purposes: in case of an emergency these channels will always work for evacuation signals, even if a controller loses network communication.
PAVIRO is EN 54-certified for use as a voice evacuation system. The certification allows architects, planners and specifiers to fulfil mandatory requirements specified in many tenders.
