The Viking model 40-IP Ceiling / Wall Speaker enables SIP endpoint paging and also allows for standard paging and background music via multicast. The speaker easily connects with a single CAT5/6 cable from your PoE switch. Its shallow depth allows the speaker to be conveniently mounted in a standard 2" x 4" stud wall or ceiling.
Line-level audio output connections are provided for connecting to an external amplifier. A built-in 6 Watt class D amplifier with speaker output connections is also provided to directly drive additional analog 8 Ohm speakers. The LED on the 40-IP can be programmed to light during paging.
40-IP IP Paging Speaker
Modernize any overhead paging system with the 40-IP IP Paging Speaker by Viking Electronics. The 40-IP operates as a multicast paging speaker and as a unicast or SIP paging endpoint. This PoE speaker integrates with new or existing overhead paging equipment: an amplified output drives up to 5 additional analog speakers (save money $$ on a new IP paging installation!) and a line level audio output feeds an existing amplifier (add modern multicast paging features to analog paging systems).
