Biamp Vocia EWS-10
The EWS-10 is a wall-mounted networked paging station for use in Vocia® systems. The EWS-10 features embedded DSP and on-board memory to support standard and advanced public address functionalities. The EWS-10 can store 999 user-configurable page codes. Additionally, all device-specific configuration information is stored locally, which means the EWS-10 does not rely on a centralized controller for processing and page routing. Thus, the processing, routing and storage functionality in a Vocia system is decentralized, which eliminates any centralized point of failure. As part of the Vocia system, the EWS-10 meets paging requirements for facilities of all sizes.
• Auxiliary port allows the use of an external 24V compliant power supply for main or redundant power • Push-to-talk button with status indication • Up to 999 user-configurable page codes • Four software configurable emergency priority paging levels • Supports up to 250 software-configurable paging priority levels • Local digital signal processing, including gain, filters, and compressor/limiter • Local storage of configuration data • Local storage of default and/or custom preambles • CobraNet® audio/control with dynamic use of available bundles, plus power over single Ethernet cable
