Federal Signal’s longstanding Informer is now IP-enabled. The Informer-IP can be used as a warning device, a two-way intercom and an alarm initiation point that connects to your Ethernet network on the SmartMsg platform.
An internal speaker and microphone provide clear two-way intercom voice communications. Alerts sent to the Informer-IP can be live voice, text to speech, pre-recorded voice or tone files. Up to six different predefined alert events can be triggered from the Informer-IP, two from the device and four from the key FOB. Alert messages initiated from the Informer-IP or key FOB can be sent to emergency personnel through email, SMS, computer popup, phone, handheld radios and can be used to activate other Informers or sirens.
The Informer-IP has an audio output for connecting to existing PA systems, two relay outputs to control strobes or other devices and an RS232 port for driving a scrolling message display so the same message that can be heard through the speaker can also be easily seen. The Informer-IP provides the same tone and voice alerts available with Federal Signal UltraVoice outdoor siren controllers for seamless indoor and outdoor Mass Notification.
The Informer-IP Wall Mount can be mounted or recessed into the wall. All wiring is internal to the aluminum case. Five pre-punched easy to remove conduit holes are available for wiring connection into and out of the unit. The unit is powered from AC or PoE (Power over Ethernet). The Informer-IP can also be equipped with an optional LP1 strobe from Federal Signal. The case has mounting holes to allow easy top mounting and is pre-wired for the LP1 strobe.
Schools, hospitals, police and fire stations, government facilities and industrial plants will find that the Informer-IP provides an unmatched value for their indoor alerting and notification needs.
Two Relay Outputs rated at 5 Amps @ 30VDC. Relay outputs can be programmed to cycle on and off, or come on continuously with the on time, off time, and total-time being programmable.
