Step 1 - Select A Page Control
Page Controls are the "Brain" of the system, much
like the CPU (Central Processing Unit) of a computer system and are
specifically designed for telephone system integration. The Page Control
Unit will be the device that provides connection points for the system
inputs and the speaker audio outputs. All Page Control Units have a
Background Music input, as well as an All-Call feature for Multi-Zone Page
Easy Selection Considerations:
Number of Zones– Determine the number of paging zones you will
have. A paging zone is a speaker or group of speakers that you want to
page to separately from the rest of the system. Page Control Units have
capability for supporting 1, 3, 6, 9 or 24 zones (expandable up to 96 in
24 zone increments).
One-Way or Talkback/Intercom Paging
Special Features – Night Ring and Time Clock tones, Override Page,
Group Paging, Feedback Elimination.
Telephone Access Method/Port – Determine What your Access Method
A Loop Start Trunk Port (FXO)
A Station Port (FXS)
A 600 OHM Page Port (Some Multi-Zone Units
will Require an Associated Dry Contact Closure Pair Along with the
Page Port Audio Pair).
A Stand Alone Single Line Telephone Set
Each Page Control Unit can support up to 150 Valcom One-Way amplified
speakers on the audio output with the exception of the V-2924A, which will
accommodate 40 speakers. Additional speakers may be added to a zone by using
a V-1094A. Each V-1094A allows the addition of 150 more amplified speakers
to that zone.
