The Bogen Communications ANS501 Ambient Noise Sensor is designed for use with paging systems. The sensor monitors the ambiance levels in environments where the levels are constantly fluctuating. The sensor then compensates for the ambiance level whenever paging occurs. This results in comfortable, audible pages no matter how noisy or quiet the environment. The ANS501 sensor features adjustable threshold controls and ANS500M remote microphone.
The Bogen Ambient Noise Sensor system is designed to monitor continuously changing ambient noise levels and electronically adjust the level of a page announcement and/or background music so intelligibility is maintained.The system consists of the control module (Model ANS501), a microphone module (ANS500M), and a power supply. The system ensures that page announcements and music are audible even during periods of high noise levels by continuously monitoring the ambient noise level through a microphone module located in the subject area and adjusting the paging signal level into the system’s amplifier.
