Evacuation systems integrated with paging, background music and advertising.

We make sure you can trust on you safety.

Public address

Creating a pleasant atmosphere for passengers and ensuring their safety in the event of an evacuation are crucial considerations for a PA system on cruise ships.
The system is a multi-zone configuration with a relatively high number of audio channels, with local volume control and source selection in passenger areas and cabins.

General alarm system 
It must also conform to the international SOLAS treaty and interface with the ship’s fire detection system. The system is SOLAS, IEC60849 and BS5839 compliant.

Praesideo is fully digital, offering CD quality and disturbance-free audio. Its flexible ‘daisy chain’ network topology allows system units to be placed on different locations,
throughout the ship connected via glassfiber cabling. Zones are identified in the decks, cabins, function rooms and engine room.

Loudspeaker monitoring
Loudspeaker lines and individual loudspeaker at crucial locations are supervised using Praesideo’s ‘wire-free’ multiple-line and loudspeaker supervision.
Spare amplifiers are used to automatically take over in case a power amplifier fails. Fault conditions are immediately reported, allowing corrective actions to be taken.

Touchscreen-controlled call stations with a graphical user interface and an emergency call station on the bridge with duplicated electronics connected to both systems
(A and B).
