The World's First Manufacturer to Meet Both UL 2572 and CAN/ULC-S576 Mass Notification Standards

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Aug. 17, 2015 /CNW/ - Audio specialist manufacturer, TOA Corporation announces the world's first Voice Evacuation System complying with both American and Canadian standards UL 2572* and CAN/ULC-S576 ** listings.

The VM-3000 is an integrated system, incorporating a paging matrix/mixer with DSP, digital messaging, a priority microphone and zone-switchable power amplifier section. An easy-to-use GUI programming interface (MS Windows™) provides simple setup and configuration via Ethernet. Designed to suit small to medium sized applications such as schools, office buildings, industrial facilities and shopping centers, the VM-3000 can expand to cover as many as sixty paging zones with a maximum of 2000 Watts for Mass Notification and can even broadcast high-quality announcements and background music. The VM-3000 system also allows for integration with various fire alarm control panel and life safety systems, redundant power, speaker line-supervision and includes multi-level priority override from local or remote paging sources.  Already bearing the European EN 54-16 certification, the VM-3000 and its associated products, including power supplies now carries the UL 2572 and CAN/ULC-S576 certification, which complies with new NFPA 72 code governing Mass Notification Systems.

Upgrading an existing fire alarm system to a Mass Notification System can be achieved by simply adding the VM-3000 with TOA's UL 1480 UUMW and ULC-S541 listed loudspeakers, offering an incredibly reliable and affordable voice alarm solution.

Daisuke Imagawa (General Manager of TOA International Sales Department) comments "TOA has been providing voice evacuation solutions for over 50 years throughout the world. By being the first manufacturer to achieve both UL listings for the VM-3000 range of products will only endorse TOA as being an industry leader in Northern America. We at TOA are all very excited about the prospects of being the world's first system to achieve such strict accreditation and are looking forward to its success"
