MPS10 – MPS50 Modular Paging and Emergency MicrophoneThe MPS10, MPS20, MPS30, MPS40, and MPS50 are powerful and flexible paging microphones which can provide live, store-and-forward, and recorded message broadcast into user selected zones, and also provide EN54 compliant emergency functions and all EN54 mandatory indicators and controls.
The units each consist of a MPS01 sloping desk console with a flexible gooseneck paging microphone, graphic LCD display, and silent operation ‘Touch to Talk’ touch pad PTT button, together with one or more additional MPX10 zone selection and control button modules. The number of additional buttons depends on the model, with the MPS10 having ten extra Select buttons, and the MPS50 having fifty. PA zone selection is provided by the Select buttons or by using the rotary selector and graphic LCD display. There is also a VU bargraph which displays the microphone signal level.
The MPS range has multiple system interfaces, and can be connected directly to either one or two audio routers. The microphones will also operate in a hardware bypass fallback mode in the event of failure within a host router. All interconnect cabling and the microphone capsule is continuously monitored.
As well as the main microphone gooseneck, there are 3.5mm jack plug connections for an auxiliary audio input, such as for background music, and for connection of a microphone headset. A general purpose local contact input and output enables use with PTT foot switches and external speak now indicators.
The units can be fitted with a uSD card to hold user recorded or pre-recorded audio messages, and custom user chimes, and can be used to replay these messages over the PA system. A speaker is provided on the underside of the console, and this enables preview of the locally stored DVA messages, and also enables remote PA zones to be listened to.
