Vocia VI-8

The Vocia 8-Channel Live Audio Input Device (VI-8) is designed to facilitate the use of live audio Paging to Emergency and Non-emergency Zones in a Vocia system. The VI-8 allows direct connection of up to eight analog mic/line audio inputs or digital CobraNet® audio connections from external systems. Eight General Purpose Inputs and Outputs are provided and can be assigned to Control Events in the Vocia system. The interface allows live, real-time audio Paging to any assignable Page Code or Zone within the Vocia World. The Status In and Status Out allows for monitoring of multiple VI-8 devices and the Vocia Emergency system. The VI-8 supports Emergency Paging functions when a Vocia Life Safety Interface (LSI-16 or LSI-16e) is present in the system.
