Multichannel Switching VACIE


Setting a new course for the Voice Alarm system industry, IMPACT is a multi-channel VACIE system comprising only two rack frames and ‘Remote-Controlled-Zone-Expanders’ switching modules.

Three reasons for IMPACT:

The IMPACT of technology on the environment.
The IMPACT of configurable modular design on space saving
The IMPACT on decreasing installation and operating costs

The IMPACT system consists of only two chassis, one controller that transfers the network data stream to the amplifier and a 
DCA- 2.500 amplifier completed with at least one 4E-SW6 module. The 4E-SW6 is an intelligent 2-into-6 Remote Controlled Zone 
Expander and zoning module that subdivides broadcasts into a multiple of six sub-areas. The 4E-SW6 provides ‘built-in’ 
loudspeaker monitoring. 


Now it is time to think smart and combine battery charger capabilities with the integrated power amplifier. The DCA-2.500 
amplifier not only drives the system up to an impressive 1000 Watt, but it also charges and surveys a scalable battery pack 
for a large group of amplifiers that are sharing their battery charging output. This not only reduces hardware and rack-space 
but most importantly, it decreases installation and operational costs whilst increasing reliability. Simple to configure with its easy to use GUI tool guiding software you create a systems solution with multiple Voice-Alarm zones, paging-zones and music areas in minutes. High quality DSP-processing guarantees state of the art audio performance throughout the building as well as highly intelligible pre-recorded and live message broadcast for both commercial and live-safety applications. 


IMPACT comes with a wide range of emergency wall-box and desktop paging consoles. The Global-Network connects up to 254 nodes, consisting of CONTROLLERS, paging consoles, 4E-SW6 zone expanders, 4E-GPIO modules and COMPACT500
offering a staggering size of up to 1400 speaker-lines!


CONTROLLER - Audio Matrix

SW6 - Remote Controlled Zone Expander module


Standing apart from any conventional power amplifier, the DCA2.500 features an in-built scalable battery charger with a temperature sensor that is EN54-4 compliant. A Master/Slave system architecture, dictated by the AMP-LINK, regulates the battery-cluster charging procedure and status control. This way a single, larger battery pack can be shared with multiple amplifiers.
The DCA-2.500 D-Class amplifier provides powerful audio amplification certified to EN54-16 and EN54-4. It delivers 2x500 W outputs and is housed in a 2U 19-inch rackhousing.


The CONTROLLER is the heart of the IMPACT system. Housed in a 1U 19-inch rack-mountable frame, it manages all VACIE operations. This involves the management and prioritising of audio streams coming from the network. The CONTROLLER deals with inputs according to thair own signal priority table, distributing the audio using the digital AMP-LINK module, which handles two prioritised audio streams through a dynamic assignment technique, to a maximum of 16 DCA-2500 amplifiers per CONTROLLER.

IMPACT 4E-SW6 - Remote Controlled Zone Expander module

More zones, Fewer amplifiers
The 4E-SW6 Remote Controlled Zone Expander module is a simple and cost-effective way to distribute various loads over a multiple of 6-speaker lines/zones. When combined with 4EVAC's DCA-2.500, or other third-party single high-power two-channel amplifier, the 4E-SW6 switching module generates simultaneous EVAC and ALERT announcements or paging messages and background music (BGM) into six switched speaker lines. By adding more 4E-SW6 switching modules, it is possible to produce any multiple of six speaker lines, which can be grouped in virtual paging zones.

IMPACT Fireman microphones

The 4EVAC series of paging consoles have been designed to provide a flexible user interface to the COMPACT and IMPACT Voice Alarm systems. The console layout is clean and uncluttered, but contains all the system functions and status indication required by EN54-16. The handheld fireman’s microphone is protected by a transparent protection cover to provide access-level protection as well as protection against accidental operation.  The handheld fireman’s microphone has a large speak bar and operation is both simple and intuitive. 

Compliant with:
EN54-4, EN54-16 and EN54-17 - EN50130-4
