Acoustic Technology, Inc. (ATI Systems), a world leader of reliable emergency warning and notification systems for the campus, community, industrial, and military markets, and Platinum Award Winner for Five Consecutive Years in the Annual ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, is pleased to announce the company is Returning as a Premier Sponsor of the 2022 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program.
An emergency can happen anywhere and when every second counts, the most effective area-wide warning is an intelligible voice message with information and instructions.
ATI Systems portfolio of products, for example their Transportable High-Powered Speaker Station (THPSS), which was recognized with the 2019 Platinum ‘ASTORS’ Award for Best Mass Notification Hardware, is an ideal solution for outdoor situations that require the durability of a permanent solution, but also transportability for a temporary situation.
A wide area giant voice system utilizing the THPSS can be deployed in a matter of hours instead of the months required to construct a permanently installed system.
This provides a great communication system advantage for any geographically dynamic project such as military emergency operations, oil and gas exploration, and national border security requirements.
Temporary permanent is the new normal in more and more situations today, and the THPSS is the answer to that demand.
The THPSS is an easily portable and rapidly deployable solution for mass notification.
Transportable High-Powered Speaker Station (THPSS) System Diagram
It provides 1600 Watts of continuous audio output power for reliable alert tone notification and delivery of pre-recorded messages in emergency situations or for public addresses.
The THPSS is designed for temporary usage including military installations, sporting events, large public gatherings, construction sites, and locations where a permanent mass notification system is not cost effective.
THPSS includes four 400W speakers (with cases), an easy-to-setup 20-foot mast system, a 1600W transportable amplifier with a built-in local operating console (TALOC), external battery cases, as well as all necessary audio and power cabling kits
These units have the rigid construction and weatherproof components required to withstand any type of weather and wind gusts, acting like a more permanent installation.
The THPSS is specially designed with a wide, heavy base that keeps the mast and speaker array stable in bad weather, and includes rigging for guy-wire to securely fasten in place.
Ease of transport and rapid deployment were also major design considerations for the THPSS, which makes assembly much easier and enables an installation to be completed within a few hours.
The external 12V 100AH batteries power that each unit only requires a trickle charge from solar, AC, or a generator to maintain the charge to power the sirens.
THPSS units can act as individuals or as part of a larger system. Each has a built-in touch screen to support individual activation and control from the base of the device itself.
For a larger system, ATI Systems also offers a Mobile Central Control Unit, the REACT5000M for remote activation, control, and monitoring of multiple THPSS devices in a robust system for providing emergency alerting capabilities to wider areas.
The REACT5000M is simple to use and easy to operate.
It supports multiple communication pathways including UHF/VHF radio and IP communication so that it can be customized for any situation.
It is protected with a lightweight rugged case specially designed for simple connections for the system communication and includes a built-in 12 VDC battery to support remote operation during any emergency, even when AC power is lost.
All of the equipment required for a robust and reliable Emergency Warning System can be quickly set up for anyone that needs this in place quickly.
The ease of assembly facilitates relocation to alternate sites as the system can be disassembled, packed, and ready for transport rapidly to be used over and over again.
ATI was also honored with a Platinum Award for Extraordinary Leadership & Innovation for the company’s next-generation REACT5000 Central Control Unit (CCU) which provides advanced monitoring and control features that enhance the entire line of ATI Mass Notification products.
