Federal Signal’s long-standing Informer is now IP-enabled. The Informer-IP Series C can be used as a warning device, a two-way intercom and an alarm initiation point that connects to the Commander® On-Premise System. The C model of the Informer-IP removes support of the key fob and adds the ability to store pre-recorded messages on a removable micro SD card.

The Informer-IP’s internal speaker microphone provide clear two-way intercom voice communications. Incoming warnings and alerts can be live voice, pre-recorded messages or tone files. Two different predefined alert events can be triggered from the Informer-IP Series C. Alert messages initiated from the Informer-IP Series C can be sent to emergency  personnel via e-mail, text messages, phone, handheld radios; and can also be used to activate other Informer units and sirens.

The Informer-IP Series C features an audio output for connecting public address systems, two relay outputs for controlling strobes or other devices, and an RS232 port for driving a scrolling message display in order for the same message  
that is heard over the speaker to simultaneously be viewed on the display. The Informer-IP provides the same tone and voice alerts available with Federal Signal’s UltraVoice™ outdoor siren controllers for seamless indoor and outdoor mass notification.

The Informer-IP I-IP-IO model is designed for desktop use. Power options include an external AC transformer or PoE (Power over Ethernet). All wiring runs to accessible connectors on the back of the unit for quick and easy installation.

Also available is the Informer-IPW, which is designed to be wall mounted or recessed into the wall. All wiring is contained within an aluminum case and five pre-punched, easy-to-remove conduit holes are available to facilitate wiring connections into and out of the unit. The case has top mounting holes and is pre-wired for the LP1 strobe option.

Schools, hospitals, police and fire stations, government facilities and industrial plants will find that the Informer-IP provides an unmatched value for their indoor alerting and notification needs.
