Sigcom's VECP Series includes the VECP-25 and VECP-50 voice evacuation control panels and the DVS-RM remote microphones. The VECP-25 provides 25 Watts of output power. The VECP-50 provides 50 Watts of output power. Both VECP controls have a built-in digital message unit, UL listed power supply, and a supervised microphone. The digital message unit includes 2 voice messages and 4 field selectable alert tones. VECP control panels provide four Class A or Class B supervised speaker circuits which are configurable for either 25 or 70.7Vrms speaker loop voltage.
The VECP Series control panels are designed for the upgrade of existing fire alarm systems to add voice evacuation capability without replacing the FACP, as well as for new system. Typical applications include places of assembly such as schools, theatres, places of worship, office buildings, restaurants, and military facilities. In addition, a built-in auxiliary audio input enables VECP Series to interface with existing telephone paging systems increasing the overall functionality of the system.
VECP Series control panels are extremely easy to add to an existing fire alarm system interfacing directly to any addressable or conventional FACP. Both models have two alarm inputs, one triggered by reverse polarity (NAC output) and one by supervised dry contact trigger. Additional features include a supervised integral microphone plus the option for remote supervised microphone; common alarm and fault relay outputs, an on-board switch for system test, and digital signal meters to display the power and voltage output on the speaker circuits.
