Certified safety from a small footprint
The Compact 500 is 4Evac’s response to a need from architects and interior designers for a certified evacuation system with a small footprint. The wall-mounted C500 is described as offering ‘the implicit simplicity of a stand-alone conventional system, but with the added power and benefits of Global Network Topology’.
The C500 drives two ‘live-stream’ audio channels and one serial data channel (RS-485) over a redundant Global-Network-Loop into global zones and operates a 3-channel message player that sends synchronised audio into the local zones. This enables it to generate five different audio streams to play simultaneously into all the local zones.
Each unit provides in-built routing to six single zones of 6 x70W with its back-up amplifier. A single installation can reportedly reach over 1,500 speaker lines, accumulated into multiple paging zones within a system architecture of 256 prioritised zones.
Designed and manufactured in Europe the C500 is EN54 compliant and also third party approved and certified beyond the minimum relevant European standards, including EN54-16:2008, EN54-4:2006, EN54-17:2005 and EN50130-4:2011.
