Peavey® Commercial Audio proudly announces the new CM2-APS™, CM2-10d™ and RMP-2™ CobraNet® paging stations for MediaMatrix® digital audio networks. These paging stations interface with the ControlMatrix® II integrated hardware and software paging platform over Ethernet, providing designers and integrators with a convenient method of adding paging stations to their projects with a single network connection.
Peavey ControlMatrix Series paging systems are installed worldwide in transportation terminals, sporting facilities and entertainment venues, and the addition of these new digital paging stations make installation of ControlMatrix systems easier than ever.
The MediaMatrix CM2-APS is a rack-mounted, networkable administrator paging station that connects directly to a CobraNet network for all audio, control and power connections through a single Ethernet network cable and a standard 8P8C modular connector (RJ-45). The CM2-APS includes a handheld dynamic microphone with a PTT (Push-To-Talk) switch, and an internal 5-watt power amplifier with front-panel level control that drives an integrated loudspeaker to allow page monitoring. A high-quality microphone preamplifier and analog-to-digital converter transform the audio for the digital space.
The steel front panel of the CM2-APS is designed for rack-mount applications where an administrator paging station is required in control rooms, terminal gear areas, IDFs or network operation centers. The CMS-APS will operate on either PoE (Power over Ethernet) technology or DC low voltage power (local or remote).
The MediaMatrix CM2-10d paging station features a handheld dynamic microphone with a PTT (Push-To-Talk) switch, a high-quality microphone preamplifier, and a built-in analog-to-digital converter. All connections to the CM2-10d are accomplished through a single Ethernet network cable. Power is via PoE (Power over Ethernet) technology and local or remote DC low voltage power. The high-impact ABS cabinet design allows the CM2-10d to be used on desktops, surface mounted on vertical surfaces or flush mounted using an optional steel backing box.
The RMP-2 is a flush-mounted remote mic station that extends paging functions to a second location in areas such as airport jetways and train station loading platforms. The RMP-2 is powered by a “host” ControlMatrix digital paging station, such as the CM2-10d, via a single Ethernet-type connection. The RMP-2 function is programmed with the ControlMatrix II software and allows the remote user to page to the last zone selected at its host paging station, or to default to the local zone to which it is assigned. A status LED on the front panel alerts the user when the host paging station is in use. The RMP-2 is housed in a durable 16-gauge steel front panel which mounts in a standard two-gang NEMA enclosure.
