IN-PLANT COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM
In2iT Modular IP Page/Talk, PAGA, Intercom Systems
As plants modernize network infrastructure to support IP based communication and improve network topologies, they rely on Guardian Telecom to provide them with the latest technology – delivering easy to use, rugged devices to solve In-Plant Communication concerns while maximizing integration options and easing implementation costs.
Guardian Telecom’s Next Generation In2iT In-Plant Communications System(s) was designed using a forward thinking approach, with the future in mind for additional support and expansion capabilities, solving major limitations of existing and current in-plant communication solutions and going beyond traditional thinking with Hybrid Analog/Digital Technology.
When we designed our In2iT in-plant communications system, it was based on client requests to reduce complicated configuration and system controls, improve maintenance and system upkeep, decrease cabling costs and to be fully backwards compatible. We went beyond the industry standard to meet those challenges; like, rugged reliable components, a new intuitive and flexible user interface, remote configuration monitoring and management, fiber connection ready and compatible with all legacy infrastructure including endpoints and easing installation costs. We future proofed for features so your facility’s current needs are met while also anticipating those of tomorrow.
In2iT RANGE SYSTEM BASE PLATFORM
The In2iT Communications System has been totally redesigned. We’ve re-engineered the system to provide the features the industry demands utilizing our advanced product technology with just the right amount of open architecture to ensure the systems can be expanded and customized. All of the products within the In2iT Communications System Platform are hardened for high reliability and high stability.
SCF In2iT SERIES SYSTEM CONTROL FRAME
The System Control Frame (SCF) is the heart of Guardian Telecom’s In2iT In-Plant Communications Platform. Working in conjunction with the Operator Access Panel, the SCF manages and routes all audio and data signals between the end points and users. It operates autonomously or in conjunction with other SCF sub-stations. Designed for future expandability, with ongoing support and reliability.
The SCF is flexible and incorporates all the required modules as needed for each custom application. A standardized distribution frame is incorporated for consistent and reliable connections to the facility cabling architecture.
SZM In2iT SERIES SYSTEM ZONE MANAGER
Guardian Telecom’s Hybrid PAGA/Page Talk System Control Frame (SCF) includes the System Zone Manager (SZM) to provide the key service of routing the page and talk conference lines within the facility zones.
The SZM is the audio hub of the system. The SZM features a modular design, and each chassis comes with dual redundant power supplies and supports up to 12 zone module cards. The zone modules have an independent micro-controller embedded and provide continuous self-health monitoring and communication to the SCF Servers. Each Module card will manage 5 Conference talk lines and the page line. If more than 12 zones are required, the total number of zones can be expanded by adding additional SZM Chassis.
AIM In2iT SERIES ALARM INTERFACE MANAGER
Guardian Telecom’s Alarm Interface Manager (AIM) is a key component of the In2iT System Control Frame (SCF). The AIM Manager provides continuous monitoring of alarm or other device inputs and reports triggers to the SCF for alarm or message broadcast. The AIM can also be used to control external devices (sounders, beacons, door strikes, etc.). Armed with a multitude of configurable inputs and outputs the Alarm Interface Manager is designed to meet any I/O strategy thrown at it.
FIM In2iT SERIES FIBER INTERFACE MANAGER
Guardian Telecom’s Fiber Interface Manager (FIM) is ideal for extending paging/alarm and talk lines from the In2iT and legacy Page/Talk systems over fiber to reduce long distance copper infrastructure between sites. The FIM converts Page/Talk signals (audio and data) into a digital format that can be transmitted via an SFP device module.
EIM In2iT SERIES ENHANCED INTERFACE MODULE
Guardian Telecom’s Enhanced Interface Module (EIM) is a small multi-function Interface module that is the ideal endpoint for interaction with 3rd party devices. The EIM provides the means to monitor and control such devices including adjusting paging speaker volume levels remotely on central paging systems.
In2iT RANGE SYSTEM ENDPOINTS
In2iT Guardian Telecom Page Talk Handset Stations – same ease of use, same hardened exteriors, same reliability but a whole new core. Our new page talk combines the best of digital technology while allowing connection to the analog world. We’ve boosted the paging power range from the traditional 12W to 30W.
These stations are beyond “smart”. From remote locations one can access each station or groups of stations. Perform diagnostics, control the paging amplifier volume to the speakers. In normal operation the station will continually self monitor it’s status and silently report to the SCF for real time monitoring. Someone drop a handset? Not a problem! The stations internal monitoring algorithms will detect this, report it and then place the unit back into an on-hook state. You may still see a rotary knob for switching talk lines but inside the audio management is all digital, eliminating opportunities for noise due to worn or dirty switch contacts.
PTO In2iT SERIES PAGE TALK OUTDOOR STATION
Guardian Telecom’s In2iT Page Talk Outdoor Zone 2 Stations provide easy to operate paging with the versatility of five intercommunication talk lines for two or more people. The stations feature continuous real time self-diagnostics and the flexibility of monitoring external devices via four optically isolated inputs when used with Guardian Telecom’s In2iT In-Plant Communications platform.
PTI In2iT SERIES PAGE TALK INDOOR STATION
Guardian Telecom’s Page Talk Indoor In2iT Zone 2 Stations provide easy to operate paging with the versatility of five intercommunication talk lines for two or more people. The stations feature continuous real time self-diagnostics and the flexibility of monitoring external devices via two optically isolated inputs when used with Guardian Telecom’s In2iT In-Plant Communications platform.
