Federal Signal’s Intelligent Systems now includes an interface to public address systems. Model I-IP2 Series B provides two Informer-PA modules in a single rack unit (1RU) enclosure for interfacing with public address systems. The Informer-PA creates the same alert communications provided over the outdoor systems. Informer-PA, when paired with the Commander® control system, offers the same level of security available with all Federal Signal control systems.
The Model I-IP2 Series B has two independent Informer-PA interfaces with 600 Ohm adjustable audio output. Informer-PA can store up to 4,000 messages / 17 hours of pre-recorded tone/voice alerts.  In addition, each Informer-PA provides dual relay output for control of external devices; such as, zones for PA systems, or visual indicators. Additionally, I-IP2 has an RS-232 port to drive message boards for scrolling message displays. 
The I-IP2 Informer-PA is a compact 19” 1RU rack mount, wall or desk mount unit. Power is supplied via PoE for each Informer-PA interface. Optional power can be supplied via wall transformer. Power indicators on the faceplate are provided for status monitoring. All wiring is via connectors on the rear of the unit for quick and easy installation.
