The Informer I-IPSIUB provides multiple input/output interfaces to Federal Signal’s alert and notification system. It can also interface to radio systems for voice message broadcast. The I-IPSIUB is a network device with a 10/100 LAN interface, local digital voice messages, relay outputs and inputs for initiating devices; additionally, it stores local digital messages and programming information managed by Federal Signal Commander control software.

An Informer I-IPSIUB can interface initiating devices to activate pre-determined messages or alerts, within a mass notification system. The Informer I-IPSIUB can also interface to radio systems to push digital voice messages over radio systems. This allows the same digital voice messages sent over giant voice systems to also be played over radio systems. The Informer I-IPSIUB provides status and alarm information for product faults. Each Informer I-IPSIUB has four independent relays with normally open and normally closed contacts to control external devices such as access control systems, strobes, lights, sounders. An RS232 interface allows interface of digital message displays. The Informer I-IPSIUB also has 16 inputs which can be used to activate a broad range of capabilities.

The Informer I-IPSIUB is an ideal solution for large industrial complexes, healthcare facilities, schools, university campuses, office buildings, municipal facilities and other intelligent system applications.
