Biamp Vocia VA-4030
The VA-4030 is a digital networked four-channel amplifier for use in Vocia systems. It is capable of delivering continuous audio power at 30 Watts RMS per channel. The VA-4030 is CobraNet® enabled for audio and control with dynamic use of bundles. Two RJ-45 connectors on the rear panel provide redundant CobraNet connectivity to the Vocia network. The on-board DSP provides comprehensive fixed-chain, digital signal processing within the device. In addition, emergency messages are stored in local nonvolatile memory. Page active relay outputs provide a contact closure per channel when paging is active on the channel. The amplifier offers low impedance and constant voltage outputs. The VA-4030 also has comprehensive failover capability with device-to-device, all-to-one, and channel-to-channel failover.
