The TOA VX-2000 Integrated Voice Evacuation system was selected after nearly 3 years of intensive product and system research. The reliability of earlier TOA products was one of the criteria considered very important. Added to this exceptional reliability experienced by the user, consideration was given that since the inception of VX-2000 installations in South Africa not one system has failed or had failures.
It also provides for Multiple Zone and Fireman's microphones on the system, each with their own priority status as well as phased evacuation as multiple messages and or tones can be broadcast in different zones / areas simultaneously.
The entire system is self-monitored every 100 seconds with fault indications registering on the rack equipment as well as the control microphones. Logs are automatically generated (announcements, system faults, inputs, automatic messages and alarm tones, faulty lines, etc).
