We have just handed over another successful PA System project that had an impossibly tight project timeline. We managed to complete the job within 2 business days of receiving the purchase order from the client.
The client is a 5 story commercial building used mainly as a mall located in one of Singapore’s most exclusive residential districts. The reason for the tight timeline is that the building was scheduled for its Fire Certification and the project had to be completed in time to be used for the PE inspection. We were called in to assess the old PA system to see if rectification was an option. We advised the client that even if all the existing equipment was in serviceable condition it would be more costly and time consuming to bring the existing system up to the current code of practice than to replace the entire system. We proposed an “All in One” Digital PA System that housed the Digital Message Manager, Audio Mixer, Power Amplifier, Line Surveillance, Amplifier Surveillance & Changeover as well as Volume Controls in one device. This along with additional items: Hot Spare Digital Power Amplifier, EVC Event Recorder, Battery Charger and Backup Batteries rounded out the system. This new Digital PA System worked out to be more cost effective than PA System Rectification that they had originally intended. An added benefit is that since the system houses all the functions in one neat package there is significantly less cabling and interconnection inside the equipment rack. This allowed us to complete this job in record time.
This small building is the perfect use case for the “All in One” Digital PA System. With everything required to satisfy code of practice SS546 in one 3U rackmount equipment this allows the complexity, cost and footprint of the PA system to be kept to a minimum. This controller also comes with a 6 zone router built in and all zones have volume controls. The system can be expanded using additional 6 zone routers and the routers also have power amplifiers and volume controls built in making a very complete, feature rich and user friendly system perfect for small to medium sized installations.
