IDA8C Master Controller

IDA8 is a third-generation modular system that complies with current architectural demands requiring IP and/or fibre-optic networking to allow for even the most complex of system designs.

The IDA8C is EN54-16 certified for use on Public Address and Voice Alarm systems and compliant to UL60065, ISO 7240-16, BS EN 50849, BS6259 & BS5839 Parts 8 & 9, with specific attributes for compliance in large installations. All system Components and peripherals are monitored. This monitoring extends from the capsule of a paging 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 signal 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 supports amplifier monitoring with hot-swap amplifiers and loudspeaker line impedance monitoring. One IDA8C supports connection to a maximum of 31 slave units via Ateis-Net. The slave units are available as single speaker line (IDA8S) or with A/B speaker line configurations (IDA8SAB), or for low-impedance speaker systems (IDA8SL). The LCD touch screen panel on the IDA8C gives the operators a detailed overview of the operational status of the entire system.
