Versatile Control Panels
Fire?Lite Alarms releases its MS-2 and MS-4 fire alarm control panels. They offer automatic strobe synchronization of audio/visual devices, which enables the control system to perform in compliance with ADA standards, minimizing noise and undue disturbance by ensuring that strobes flash simultaneously. These panels also feature the "EZ Walk Test," which simplifies testing and maintenance and makes inspection easier. The MS-4 also allows for an optional Class-A-Converter (CAC-4) module, which provides for Class A wiring when necessary. While both operate at 24 volts with 3 amps of total power on board, the MS-4 is also capable of supplying a total of 6 amps with an optional transformer.

Power-Video-Data Product
The new, unshielded twisted pair wire (UTP) CCTV power-video-data product, the NV-218A-PVD, from Network Video Technologies (NVT), incorporates the transceiver engine of NVT's popular NV-213A video transceiver to allow a direct video output connection from the camera. It adds power and data connections to and from the camera. The interference rejection and low emissions of the NV-218A-PVD lets video signals co-exist in the same wire bundle as telephone, datacom, or low-voltage power circuits.

Four Inputs/Six Outputs
Channel Vision introduces the ARIA A4601 four-input six-output A/V matrix controller designed for whole-house audio and video distribution systems. It is intended to be used with a multi-channel audio amplifier, such as the ARIA A1260 twelve-channel 60-watt power amplifier. Any of the A4601's four source inputs can be selected and routed to any of the six zones independent of the other zones through the use of an IR repeating keypad (sold separately). A rack mount version is also available. Model A4601R is equipped with a rack mount faceplate to allow installations in a standard 19" equipment rack. The A4601 and A4601R may be purchased as a part of a kit that includes an A1260 amplifier, six A0127 keypads, and six pairs of IC602 in-ceiling Soprano speakers for a complete whole house audio/video system.
