N-8000 Series IP Network Intercom System

N-8000

The N-8000 Series IP Network Intercom offers flexible communications for up to 3,072 stations on existing corporate local and wide area data networks. Built on TOA's proven NX-100 network audio technology, the new IP Intercom products occupy minimal network bandwidth (130 kbps maximum) for station-to-station calls and can be controlled and monitored through software or web browser. Programmable system functions include 192 paging zones, time-based call forwarding and scan monitoring.

The backbone of the system is the compact N-8000EX Exchange which supports 16 stations and occupies only one rack space. Features include a 10/100BaseT port for connection to standard network hardware and two paging audio outputs. Larger systems can be easily configured with up to 192 exchanges and 3,072 stations. The economy N-8010EX IP Intercom Exchange, featuring one speech link, is available as a lower-cost alternative to the four-link N-8000EX IP Intercom Exchange. The N-8000MI Multi-Interface Unit features telephone interface, BGM input, paging outputs, control signaling plus functions as an interface to legacy TOA EXES intercom systems. Three new station exchanges have now been introduced, further expanding the system's capabilities. In addition, the N-8400RS Exchange uses a new line of 4-wire substations. These allow easy retrofit and upgrade of existing 2 & 4-wire systems. The new RS-140 call button panel operates on the new 2-wire exchanges but is designed to work with a 25V PA speaker in classroom applications.

Two-wire stations include the N-8000MS Multifunctional Master Station, equipped with a 32 character alphanumeric LCD display, handset and speed dial functions; the N-8010MS Standard Master Station with keypad and handset; the N-8020MS Industrial Master Station, built to withstand severe environmental conditions; and the N-8011MS Hands-Free Master Station offering hands-free simultaneous two-way (duplex) communication via an innovative ambient noise sensing function. Other two-wire stations include the N-8031MS Flush-Mount Hands-free Master Station, N-8050DS Indoor Sub-station and Q-N-8050WP Outdoor Sub-station. For custom station applications, TOA offers the N-8031SB Hands-free Master Station Board Unit and the N-8050SB Hands-free Substation Board Unit. Station line monitoring is also available via software, web browser or station display.

The N-8510MS IP Master Station provides the same functionality as the 2-wire N-8010MS. A weather-resistant version is also available, model Q-N-8540WP IP Outdoor Sub-station.

The lineup of optional IP interfaces allows expanded system operations. These include: the N-8000AL Analog Phone Interface, which allows any standard analog phone to be used as a master station. The N-8000AF Audio Interface provides audio signal connections to paging amps, playback sources, recording devices and schedule clocks. It also incorporates a built-in bell scheduler and tone library for classroom change signals. Up to 16 different schedules of 64 events each may be programmed. The N-8000CO Outside Line Interface provides access to an outside telephone line for dial-in calling, paging and control, as well as outbound forwarding of calls made to master stations. Lastly, the N-8000DI Direct Interface provides contact ins & Outs for control of paging amps, door/gate access, CCTV camera call-up & LED status panels. It may accessed by standard controls or dialing commands from any master station on the network.
