Baldwin Boxall is looking forward to welcoming visitors to ISE from 9th – 12th February (number 3-C111), a stand they are sharing with their Dutch distributor TAU Audio Solutions. ISE is always a busy show for the company and staff on the stand are expecting to see many new faces, as well as catching up with contacts already well known to them.
The company is announcing several new products at ISE 2016 and so are expecting even more interest than usual. New products include the VIGIL Eclipse4, VIGIL3 transformerless amplifiers, touchscreen control microphone and a four-way toilet alarm control unit.
The VIGIL Eclipse4
Excitingly, the new VIGIL Eclipse4 will use Baldwin Boxall’s latest transformerless voice evacuation amplifiers. In common with its predecessors, the VIGIL Eclipse4 will be a wall mountable, stand-alone voice evacuation system, providing a highly-efficient solution to the voice evacuation market.
The shallow profile of the new unit will make it ideal for mounting within a building’s risers – thus eliminating the need to take up valuable floor space elsewhere in the building. Add to this the fact that the system has outstanding networking capabilities, means that the VIGIL Eclipse4 will be the perfect solution for large, multi-floor installations.
Using proven EVAS routeing technology, and with the ability to include up to four new VIGIL3 amplifier modules (totalling up to 2,400 Watts), the VIGIL Eclipse4 will be incredibly flexible – making it suitable for the smaller style systems as well as those that require large fully-networked systems.
Also, its simple design will enable straight-forward installation and commissioning. As with all Baldwin Boxall voice evacuation products, VIGIL Eclipse4 will simply connect to any leading fire evacuation panel via the internal fire evacuation interface.
The New VIGIL3 Voice Evacuation Amplifiers
There are five modules in the range – dual 75 Watt, quad 75 Watt, dual 150 Watt, quad 150 Watt and dual 300 Watt. Each highly efficient amplifier has a built in power supply and floating transformerless output and, compared with VIGIL2 units, weigh up to an incredible 66% lighter on a like-for-like basis.
Amazingly, although amplifier power has increased and the power supply is incorporated, the units themselves are reduced in size! The smaller size means less rack space which, in turn, means the rack footprint is reduced. Also battery size, on a Watt by Watt basis, will be reduced. These attributes all help with the cost of the installation of the system and saving on space – a valuable asset for many companies.
Another great feature of the VIGIL3 amplifiers is the ‘sleep’ facility that operates when the system is on mains power – and not just when running on batteries. This, when combined with the considerable reduction of the materials used (including the lack of 100V line transformers), means that VIGIL3 amplifiers will be more environmentally friendly than its predecessor.
New Touchscreen Microphone
Also being launched on Baldwin Boxall’s stand is the desk mount touchscreen voice evacuation control microphone. Using the same sleek profile as the BVRD and BDM microphone ranges Baldwin Boxall’s new touchscreen microphone will be compatible with established VIGIL2 systems, enabling users to swap out current microphones, should they wish to do so. From the microphone it will be possible control the entire VIGIL2 voice evacuation system – with the ability to take control during an emergency event such as an evacuation.
New Disabled Toilet Alarm Controller
And, last but certainly not least, is the new four-way disabled toilet alarm control unit which will be demonstrated to visitors. The new unit will control up to four of the company’s three-part toilet alarm kits. The new control/display unit will be available with either a white or stainless steel finish – to match with the toilet alarm products already available from Baldwin Boxall. Each unit is available independently so it is possible to ‘mix & match’ finishes to suit the installation.
Unique features of the system include a monitoring facility which will indicate ‘short circuit’ or ‘open circuit’ faults. An additional benefit is the ability to acknowledge each call independently, by a simple button press. The person waiting for assistance will notice a change in the audible and visual signals when the call has been acknowledged and, therefore, will be reassured knowing that help is on the way.
More on offer.
The popular Omnicare Emergency Voice Communication system and disabled toilet alarm systems will also be on display at the show. These products, as you would expect from Baldwin Boxall, have an undeniable reputation of being robust and exceptionally reliable.
Based in East Sussex, UK, the company prides itself not only on the quality of design and build of its products, but also on its customer service and support, which Directors and staff believe is paramount to their success. Customer testimonials and long-term customer relationships prove this to be the case.
Baldwin Boxall’s staff will be on stand 3-C111 and really look forward to meeting you.
