ASL unveils new developments at ISE 2017The Integra wall-mounted solution forms a single-box, EN54 compliant public address and voice alarm system
The Netherlands - ASL is exhibiting at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE 2017), showcasing a host of new products including Integra, an all-in-one public address/voice alarm system, Vipedia Rack, a rack based EN54 solution, WMC01, a touch sensitive audio controller and Vipedia Control Protocol (VCP), a new text-based control interface.

ASL - Applications Solutions (Safety and Security) Ltd, is a UK-based systems manufacturer of high-end public address, voice alarm, commercial audio and control system products internationally renowned across transport industries for reliable and complex long-line solutions. ASL's new product ranges cater for a wide range of industries including transport, retail, stadia, nuclear, roads, tunnels and oil & gas industries. Established in 1989 and operating from its UK headquarters in Lewes, East Sussex, ASL also operates from offices in Abu Dhabi and Hong Kong.

A full complement of technical, sales and marketing personnel from ASL is looking forward to welcoming visitors in Hall 7 (stand no.7-E225) for the duration of ISE 2017 to discuss latest product and market developments and to demonstrate new and existing products including the Vipedia product range.

One of the more recent additions to the Vipedia product family, the Integra wall-mounted solution forms a single-box, EN54 compliant public address and voice alarm system. Sleek and uncluttered, Integra is designed with a modular approach and builds upon the proven technology of ASL's D-series transformerless amplifiers and Vipedia DSP. Integra greatly reduces the need for expensive design and build often required for rack-based voice alarm systems.

The WMC01 is an audio controller with a simple, intuitive design. Touch-sensitive buttons allow switching between various audio sources quickly and easily, whilst also offering volume level adjustment and muting of sound in the local zone.

WMC01 offers both IP and RS485 interfaces, allowing remote control of the local PA system without complicated wiring. A local 3.5mm audio input allows users to connect an audio source directly. The WMC01 is available in black or gold finishes and can be flush-mounted.

Vipedia-12 technology combines over 20 years of voice alarm experience, and forms the heart of the ASL's Vipedia rack-based EN54 solution. It takes care of every part of the system, from the monitoring of the loudspeakers and microphones, to the routing of messages to many zones simultaneously.

With on-board messages storage, powerful DSP based audio processing, Dante audio networking and EN54 certification - Vipedia offers a combination of professional audio processing and voice alarm reliability.

Vipedia Control Protocol (VCP) enables source selection and volume adjustment from any device capable of sending simple ASCII text over IP. Typical examples include touchscreen devices from VITY, Crestron, AMX. By communicating through a simple text-based language, integration is fast, simple and easy to implement.
