Viking Releases High-Powered Amplifier for Unicast, Multicast Paging

Viking Electronics’ PA-250-IP adds loud ringing, voice paging and background music to VoIP SIP-hosted phone service or a premise-based PBX.

HUDSON, Wisc. — Viking Electronics, based here, has released the PA-250-IP SIP/Multicast Paging Amplifier, which is said to provide up to 250 watts of loud paging for SIP-based VoIP phone systems.

The unit adds loud ringing, voice paging and background music to VoIP SIP-hosted phone service or a premise-based PBX.

“Building on the success of our IP paging line, this high-powered IP paging amplifier is unique in its usability and efficiency,” says Paul Speltz, engineer, Viking Electronics. 

The PA-250-IP is a 250-watt rack-mounted paging amplifier for 25V and 70V paging speakers and horns. Users can initiate voice paging with the PA-250-IP as a unicast end point or add the unit to a paging group for multicast paging.

Additional inputs on the PA-250-IP allow for a contact closure to activate a door chime tone, a 1/8-inch audio jack for background music which mutes during a voice page, and a 600 Ohm auxiliary input for line level audio sources providing mass notifications, pre-recorded messages or scheduled tones.

The PA-250-IP features individual level controls with LED indicators for each input, automatic peak limiting, multiple amplifier protection modes, an adjustable automatic level control, and bass and treble controls. For more power/speakers, multiple units can be daisy chained together using the 600 Ohm output.

Viking Electronics engineers and manufactures over 500 security and communication products in the United States. Products include emergency phones, entry systems, paging interfaces, mass notification systems, hotline phones, auto dialers, enclosures and more. In addition to an extensive analog line, Viking offers a large selection of IP products that are SIP compliant.
