The audio amplifier, developed for use in our Phone and Announcement System (PAN), focuses on powerful, modern and redundant hardware in a compact design.
FELA audio amplifier redundant structure
The amplifier with LAN and UIC interface allows a more fail-safe PAN. The redundant system offers four individually controllable audio channels with 50 watts (4 x 12.5) of power. For increased safety, the power supply features two separate DC/DC converters and dual audio amplifiers with two independent audio channels.
Should one of the two external or internal power supplies fail, the system will continue to function. This is because the integrated power monitoring system monitors the power supply.
The amplifiers are connected via LAN and can also be controlled via UIC interface to output prioritized announcements.
The amplifier provides rail operators with a cost-optimized solution for both new and refit projects. The amplifier can also be integrated into an existing PAN system as a SIP client. The compact design allows installation in the smallest niches and the practical USB port helps with servicing. The freely selectable mounting simplifies both installation and removal due to the reduced wiring effort.
The digital amplifier complies with EN50155, 45545-2 and is TSI LOC&PAS as well as CE/RED compliant, which greatly simplifies the approval process for railroad operators.
