mode. In the 1-channel mode, all calls and BGM are
amplified by the internal power amplifier. If desired, an
external power amplifier can be connected for spare
switching. In the 2-channel mode, the BGM is amplified
by the internal power amplifier, whereas the calls are
amplified by an external power amplifier.
2.5.4
Internal message manager
The voice alarm controller has an internal message
manager, which maps wave files (.wav) to messages that
can be played by the Plena Voice Alarm System.
figure 2.2: Voice alarm router
2.6.2
Loudspeaker zones
All necessary supervision features for compliance to
evacuation standards are integrated into the voice alarm
controller. If supervision is enabled and a fault is
detected, the voice alarm controller lights a LED on its
front panel that indicates the cause of the fault.
A voice alarm controller can serve and manage 6
loudspeaker zones. To increase the number of zones in
the system, one or more LBB1992/00 Voice Alarm
Routers can be connected to the voice alarm controller.
Each router adds a maximum of 6 zones to the system.
As the maximum number of voice alarm routers that
can be connected in a system is 9, the maximum
number of zones in a Plena Voice Alarm System is 60.
2.5.6
2.6.3
2.5.5

The voice alarm controller has a terminal block to
which 6 emergency (EMG) and 6 business trigger inputs
can be connected. Third party systems can use the
trigger inputs to start emergency and business calls in
the Plena Voice Alarm System.
2.5.7
Remote control
With the LBB1996/00 Voice Alarm Remote Control, it
is possible to control the voice alarm controller from
another site. The remote control is also available as kit
(LBB1998/00 Voice Alarm Remote Control Kit) for
creating customized solutions. The maximum number
of remote controls that can be connected to the voice
alarm controller is 2. A special type of remote control is
the LBB1995/00 Fireman’s Panel.
Bosch Security Systems | 2005-10 | 9922 141 10377 en
Trigger inputs
A voice alarm controller can manage 6 emergency
(EMG) and 6 business trigger inputs. To increase the
number of EMG and trigger inputs, one or more
LBB1992/00 Voice Alarm Routers can be connected to
the voice alarm controller. Each router adds a
maximum of 6 EMG trigger inputs and 6 business
trigger inputs to the system. As the maximum number
of voice alarm routers that can be connected in a system
is 9, the maximum number of EMG trigger inputs in a
Plena Voice Alarm System is 60. The maximum
number of business trigger inputs in a Plena Voice
Alarm System is also 60.
Plena Voice Alarm System | Installation and User Instructions | Introduction
2.6.4
External power amplifiers
The voice alarm router does not have an internal power
amplifier. When the power that is supplied by the voice
alarm controller is insufficient, to each voice alarm
router two external power amplifiers can be connected.
In a multi-router system, multiple power amplifiers can
be connected to amplify calls and background music
(BGM) or just for backup purposes.
2.7.2
Remote control
With the LBB1997/00 Voice Alarm Remote Control
Extension, it is possible to control the voice alarm router
from another location. The remote control extension is
also available as a kit (LBB1999/00 Voice Alarm
Remote Extension Kit) for creating customized
solutions.
2.7
Call station
2.7.1
Introduction
Buttons
Each call station has zone select buttons and a
push-to-talk (PTT) button. The zone select buttons can
be configured for selecting zones and zone groups in the
system. To the PTT button, a pre- and post chime can
be assigned that is played at the start or at the end of the
business call.
2.7.3
2.6.5
Supervision
The call station is not supervised. For compliance to
evacuation standards, the Plena Voice Alarm System
disables the call station during emergency calls.
2.7.4
Keypad
Each voice alarm router can add 6 extra loudspeaker
zones to the system. To be able to distribute calls to the
extra zones, it is possible to connect LBB1957/00 to the
call station. The maximum number of keypads that can
be connected to a call station is 8.
The LBB1956/00 Call Station can be connected to the
Plena Voice Alarm System to make business calls. The

Application examples
3.1
Schools
3.1.1
Introduction
Schools are typical example of applications with a large
number of zones each with a relatively low output
power requirement per zone. The main priorities are
speech intelligibility and compliance with IEC60849
standard (or equivalent). In addition to mandatory voice
alarm functionality for evacuating staff and students,
EVAC systems for schools should also include chime
tones for notifying the start/finish of lessons, plus public
address functionality for individually calling classrooms
or public area. BGM is not essential. Since a classroom
has a low ambient noise level, 1 loudspeaker is usually
sufficient, keeping the total power requirement
relatively low. Outside areas such as playgrounds and
sports fields will require weatherproof horn
loudspeakers.
3.1.2
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Summary of requirements
Typically 20 to 60 zones (in high schools)
Speech intelligibility is the main priority
Low power requirement (1 loudspeaker) per
classroom
Fireman’s panel by main entrance
Call station in main office
Additional public address functions such as chime
tones desirable
BGM in recreation areas is optional
3.1.3
Solution for a 30-zone system
The Plena Voice Alarm System Controller handles
message routing to 6 zones, the remaining 24 zones
require four additional 6-zone routers. The office is
equipped with a call station plus keypads for
individually addressing zones, while a fireman’s panel
(with overall priority) is built in by the main entrance.
Bosch Security Systems | 2005-10 | 9922 141 10377 en

en | 15
Power requirements
The system controller features a built-in 240 W power
amplifier, making it possible to drive up to 40
loudspeakers with a power handling capacity of 6 W
each. This is sufficient for a medium-sized high school
with 24 classrooms, 4 toilets/changing rooms, a staff
meeting room and 2 offices, each requiring a single
loudspeaker. The canteen, assembly hall, playing fields
and corridors typically require more loudspeakers per
zone. An additional Plena Power Amplifier is used as a
spare amplifier.

Swimming pool
3.2.1
Introduction
Swimming pools and other indoor sports and
recreational facilities are typical examples of smaller
applications with few zones. The main priorities are
excellent speech intelligibility and compliance with
IEC60849 standard (and its national equivalents),
although music in different areas is optional. An EVAC
system for a swimming pool requires voice alarm
functionality with public address functionality for
regular announcements and background music
(optional). To ensure that all visitors in the relatively
noisy pool area hear emergency messages, the power
output for that zone is relatively high. Other areas, such
as the changing rooms and offices, have lower power
requirements.

3.2.3
Solution for a 5-zone system
The Plena Voice Alarm System controller handles
routing to up to 6 zones, so no additional routers are
required. The office/reception is equipped with a call
station plus keypad for individually addressing zones,
while a fireman’s panel (with overall priority) is built in
by the emergency exit. The Plena Voice Alarm System
is a two-channel system, so BGM can still be provided
in zones not receiving a call.

Power requirements
The system controller has a built-in 240 W power
amplifier, making it possible to drive up to 40
loudspeakers with a power handling capacity of 6 W
each. The pool area requires highpower music horn
loudspeakers qualified for use in a high humidity
atmosphere. The snack bar uses cabinet loudspeakers
for music reproduction. The zones are defined as
indicated in the table. An additional Plena Power
Amplifier is used for two-channel operation and as a
spare amplifier.

Shopping mall
3.3.1
Introduction
Shopping malls are typical example of applications with
a large number of zones with varying output power
requirements per zone. The priorities are speech
intelligibility and compliance with IEC60849 standard
(and its national equivalents). In addition to mandatory
voice alarm functionality for evacuating the public and
shop personnel, an EVAC system for shopping centers
can have BGM for the public areas. It should be
possible to individually call each shop or store. During
emergency messages, each shop’s BGM volume control
is automatically overridden. Additional public address
functionality for making general public announcements
is an optional requirement.

3.3.3
Solution for a 54-zone system
A Plena Voice Alarm System Controller handles
routing to 6 zones, the remaining 48 zones require eight
6-zone routers. The security control room is equipped
with a remote control panel and call station plus
keypads for individually addressing zones and BGM for
the public areas, while the controller unit and routers
are located in a fire-resistant cabinet or basement.
Fireman’s panel (with overall priority) is built in close to
the main entrance or emergency exit (subject to relevant
local regulations). The Plena Voice Alarm System is a
two-channel system, so BGM can still be provided in
zones not receiving a call.
Bosch Security Systems | 2005-10 | 9922 141 10377 en
3.3.4
en | 19
Power requirements
Each zone will have varying power requirements,
ranging from small shops with a single loudspeaker to
department stores with several floors and more
loudspeakers. Parking garages and open-air walkways
will require weatherproof sound projectors or horn
loudspeakers. To facilitate phased evacuation from
different levels of the shopping center, public areas are
divided into zones. Additional Plena Power Amplifiers
are incorporated to provide additional power,
two-channel operation and for use as a spare amplifier.

Hotel
3.4.1
Introduction
Smaller hotels are typical examples of applications with
relatively few zones, each with a medium to high output
power requirement. The priorities are speech
intelligibility and compliance with IEC60849 standard.
In addition to mandatory voice alarm functionality for
evacuating guests and staff, an EVAC system for a hotel
should also include BGM in the restaurant, bar and
lobby, plus public address functionality for general
paging. To ensure that all guests hear an emergency
message, the power output per zone is relatively high.
Outside areas such as car parking garages, require
weatherproof horn loudspeakers.

4.1
Calls and priorities
Introduction
As the Plena Voice Alarm System is a public address
and emergency sound system, it is used to distribute
background music, business calls and emergency calls.
4.2
Business call
A business call is a call that is made when the system is
in the normal state. Business calls always have a priority
between 2 and 8 and can be started with:
• Business trigger inputs.
• Call stations.
• The mic/line input with VOX functionality of the
voice alarm controller.
Priority
To each call, a priority is assigned. When two or more
calls are addressed to the same zone or need shared
resources (e.g. the internal message manager of the
voice alarm controller), the call with the lower priority is
stopped immediately and the call with the higher
priority is started. The priority of a call depends on the
the part of the system that started the call and must be
configured with the configuration software.
Note
See the Configuration Software Manual
(9922 141 1038x) for more information about
the configuration software.
When two or more calls with the same priority are
addressed to the same zone or need shared resources
(e.g. the internal message manager of the voice alarm
controller), the oldest call is stopped immediately and
the youngest call is started. An exception to this rule are
mergeable messages (see section 4.3).
4.3
4.4
en | 23
Mergeable messages
When two or more calls are started that are based on
the same mergeable message template and have the
same priority, the calls are merged. The youngest call
will not stop the oldest call in this case. Mergeable
message can be created with the configuration software.
Bosch Security Systems | 2005-10 | 9922 141 10377 en
4.5
Emergency call
An emergency call is a call that is made when the
system is in the emergency state. Emergency calls have
a priority between 9 and 19 and can be started with:
• Emergency trigger inputs.
• The hand-held emergency microphone of the voice
alarm controller.
• The mic/line input with VOX functionality of the
voice alarm controller.

If it is necessary to detect the removal or failure of a
single loudspeaker, the following is advised:
• Do not connect more than 5 loudspeakers to the
same loudspeaker line (line A or line B). Field tests
have shown that the impedance of loudspeakers and
loudspeaker lines varies with temperature and age.
The limit of 5 loudspeakers is set due to this
variation. In a more stable environment, the number
of loudspeakers can be higher.
• Make sure that all loudspeakers connected to the
same loudspeaker line have the same impedance.

Volume overrides
The voice alarm controller has 6 override outputs; 1 for
each zone in the system (see figure 5.9). These are
suitable for 4-wire override (24 V) and 3-wire override.
Note
By default, the voice alarm controller is
configured for 4-wire (24 V), power-saving
override, see situation I in figure 5.11.
Note
The impedance measurement of the Plena Voice
Alarm System has an accuracy better than 2%.
The system only generates a fault if the line
impedance difference is greater than the
configured accuracy. Use the configuration
software to configure the accuracy.

Note
The maximum load for the internal power
amplifier of the voice alarm controller is 240 W.
However, if the voice alarm controller is used in
2-channel mode and an external 480 W
amplifier is connected to it, the maximum
loudspeaker load can be 480 W at 100 V. This
is because in 2-channel mode, the internal
power amplifier of the voice alarm controller is
used for BGM only and distributes BGM at
-3 dB, from which follows that the maximum
power output is 240 W at 70 V and that the
loading caused by 100 V loudspeakers at 70 V
is also 240 W. The external amplifier is used for
calls only with 480 W output power and 100 V
loudspeaker line voltage.

Normally, when there are no active calls, the Z+ pins
are internally connected to the NC contact of the
Volume Override. At the moment a call is started in a
zone, the Z+ pin of the zone is internally connected to
the NO contact of the Volume Override. So, the NC and
the NO contacts determine which voltage is supplied to
the positive pins of the override outputs (Z+).

Line output
The voice alarm controller has 1 line output (see figure
5.13). This output has a double cinch socket. Both cinch
sockets contain the same, mono signal, which consists of
the current BGM and calls. The line output can be used
to connect the voice alarm controller to a recording
device (e.g. a tape-deck).
Connect the 100V output of loudspeaker line A to
the 100 V input of the volume control.
Connect the 100 V/0 V (CALL/RTN) of the
transformer to the 100V output of loudspeaker line
B.

End of line detection
14.1
Introduction
The End Of Line (EOL) detection board makes a
continous check of the integrety of the loudspeaker line
based on a pilot tone. This check is in addition to the
check given by the impedance measurement. The pilot
tone is independant of the quantity of the loudspeakers
in the system or the load on the speaker cables.
14.2
Overview
The EOL is installed in the speaker cabinet at the
furthest point on a loudspeaker line. When the EOL
detects a pilot tone that is given by the voice alarm
system, the loudspeaker lines have no fault. The EOL
trigger output is closed and the LED lights up to show
that the lines have a pilot tone signal.
If the loudspeaker cable has a fault, the pilot tone stops.
The EOL circuit becomes open, which is detected by
the Voice Alarm Controller.
One EOL board can be installed to give a single fault
indication per zone or more than one can be installed
on a single fault input to check the integrity of a
loudspeaker line with several branches. When more
than one EOL board is installed, the configuration is
called a daisy-chain.
When a fault is detected by the VAC, to find the EOL
board that detects the failure, every induvidual boad
must be checked.
14.3
Installation
To install an EOL, use these general notes.
• An EOL board can only be installed in a 2-channel system. The EOL board needs the second amplifier to produce the pilot tone for the zones that are
not in use. Refer to 17.5.3.
• The volume control on the VAC must be set to
-6dB or higher. The recommended setting is 0dB. A
lower dB setting attenuates the pilot tone.
Caution
Do not connect the EOL board to the
secondary side of a volume control. The
secondary side of a volume control can
attenuate the pilot tone.
Bosch Security Systems | 2005-10 | 9922 141 10377 en
en | 67
• All inputs to a VAC or router that have an EOL
input must be normally closed inputs. The EOL
board operates with a normally closed output and
the configuration software is set to Action Open. Use
another router to receive normally open inputs.
Note
During a call the EOL input is ignored.
• The Short circuit check must be set in the configuration software.
Note
The EOL board detects a short circuit, but the
EOL cannot detect where the short circuit is.
Note
It is possible for the LED will to turn off before
the contact is opened or vice versa. This level
difference is typically less that 500 mV.
14.3.1 Installation of a single EOL
1 Connect the two cables at the end of the 100 V
loudspeaker line to the Input 100V LS on the EOL
board.
2 Connect the two cables from an Emergency Trigger
Input on the Voice Alarm Controller to TRGA on
the EOL.
3 Connect the jumpers JP1 on the EOL as shown.
14.3.2 Installation of multiple EOLs in a
daisy-chain
1 Connect the two cables from the 100 V loudspeaker
line to the Input 100V LS on the EOL board.
2 Connect one cable from an Emergency Trigger
Input on the Voice Alarm Controller to the FIRST
BOARD input on the EOL board.
3 Connect the output LAST BOARD to the input
FIRST BOARD on the subsequent EOL board.
4 Repeat step 3 for every EOL board in the system.
5 Connect the jumpers JP1 on each EOL as shown.

Dummy load
15.1
Introduction
The Dummy Load has these functions:
• Increases the percentage of impedance (with
respect to the cable impedance) present at the end of
the line.
• Allows more loudspeakers to be fitted.
• Allows longer cable lengths.
Fault detection of the loudspeaker lines with impedance
measurement is triggered by a change in excess of 20%.
The impedance at the end of the loudspeaker line must
be more than 20% of the total impedance to make sure
that an open circuit is detected.
The Dummy Load has a jumper to set the load at 20
kHz to 8, 20 and 60 W.
15.2

Note
See the Configuration Software Manual
(9922 141 1038x) for more information about
the configuration software.
Processor reset
If supervision is enabled (see section 18.1), the processor
of the voice alarm controller is supervised by a
watchdog. If the watchdog triggers, the Processor reset
indicator on the front panel of the voice alarm controller
is lit. Then, the program memory is checked and the
processor resumes operation within 10 seconds. The
indicator remains on until the fault is acknowledged and
reset.
18.3
Network
If supervision is enabled and network supervision is
switched on (see section 18.1), the connections from the
voice alarm controller to the voice alarm routers and
remote controls are supervised. When any voice alarm
router or remote control is missing during a network
check, a network error is reported.
18.4
Power amplifiers
If supervision is enabled and call power amplifier
supervision is switched on (see section 18.1), the call
power amplifiers in the system are supervised. If
supervision is enabled and BGM/Spare power amplifier
supervision is switched on (see section 18.1), the BGM
and spare power amplifiers in the system are supervised.

18.8
18.11 Line supervision
18.11.1 Introduction
If supervision is enabled and line supervision (see
section 18.1) is switched on, all loudspeaker lines are
supervised. Line supervision consists of:
• Impedance supervision (see section 18.11.2).
• Short-to-ground supervision (see section 18.11.3).
18.11.2 Impedance supervision
If line supervision is switched on, the voice alarm
controller measures the impedance of all loudspeaker
lines once every 90 seconds (default value). The
reference values for impedance supervision are stored in
the voice alarm controller during the system calibration
(see section 24.3). If a difference of > 15% (default
value) is detected between the measured line impedance
and its reference value, the line is considered faulty.
Battery
If supervision is enabled and battery supervision is
switched on (see section 18.1), the availability of the
back-up power is supervised.
18.9
en | 79
Note
The default values can be changed with the
configuration software.
Message supervision
If supervision is enabled and message supervision is
switched on (see section 18.1), the internal message
manager of the voice alarm controller is supervised.
This message supervision consists of supervision of the
wave player using a check-sum and supervision of the
audio path using a pilot tone.
Note
See the Configuration Software Manual
(9922 141 1038x) for more information about
the configuration software.
18.10 Emergency microphone
18.11.3 Short-circuit supervision
If supervision is enabled and emergency microphone
supervision is switched on (see section 18.1), the audio
path and the PTT switch of the emergency microphone
are monitored from the capsule to the connection with
the voice alarm controller.
If line supervision is switched on, the voice alarm
controller continuously monitors all loudspeaker lines in
the system for short-circuits. If a short-circuit is detected,
the line output of the short-circuited line is isolated and
shut down within 200 ms. The system will remain
operational. If the line is dual-redundant connected (A
and B), the short-circuited line remains operational as
well.

Emergency Sound Systems
Bosch Security Systems has made a great effort for the design and manufacturing of the components and also
supplies all documentation that enables the assembly of a safe and high quality emergency unit in accordance with
IEC60849. Bosch Security Systems has made up this list of requirements, based on the standard, which needs to be
filled in and subsequently signed off by both parties. The signed paper has the nature of a certificate and can have
significant meaning in the case of a legal investigation of the liability issue for personal injuries.
• The safety of the system in accordance with IEC60849 in an alarm and emergency application does not only
depend on component safety, but also highly on the installation engineer and the operator. For example, the
sound pressure level of the system depends on the installation. Moreover, the system should only be installed and
operated by qualified personnel.
• Modifications of the system should only be executed by authorized persons in accordance with the safety
concept and need to be registered in the system documentation.
• If third party components (not delivered by Bosch Security Systems) are added to the minimal configuration of
The Plena Voice Alarm System, then the IEC60849 certification becomes expired.
• Only use a UPS compliant to the current standards and legislation in combination with the Plena Voice Alarm
System.
• The end-user must maintain a journal for the system.
• The installer is responsible for security measures to prevent improper use of the system.
• Bosch Security Systems refuses any liability for damage that might result from non-observance of these
instructions.
Herewith the undersigned states that he/she has processed for him/her applicable requirements, as specified in this
document, in an adequate way and has confirmed this fact by signing the right most column of each applicable
requirement.

NOTE If the persons who are required to understand
the messages are, or will be, reasonably
familiar with them through regular system tests,
the effective intelligibility tends to increase by
approximately 0,05 on the CIS if the
intelligibility is in the range 0,6 to 0,7. This may
apply, for example, in an office building.
However, in a sports ground, for example, most
of the messages are likely to be relatively
unfamiliar to the majority of persons present
and no relaxation of the above requirement
should be considered.
The system specification may exclude from the
area of coverage, defined areas rarely or never
occupied by people.

IEC60849 - 5.5 Interface with emergency detection system
table 10: IEC60849 - Interface with emergency detection system
Requirement
Compliance
The communication link between the
emergency detection system and the sound
system shall be continuously monitored for
faults. This is normally performed by the control
equipment for the emergency detection
system, which gives an audible and visual
indication of a fault in the link between the two
systems.
Compliant, if properly installed using supervised
trigger inputs. Responsibility of the installer.
The emergency detection system shall also be
capable of receiving information regarding
faults in the sound system and shall include a
provision, usually at its control and indicating
equipment, for appropriate audible and visual
indication of such faults. As a minimum, the
sound system shall be capable of transmitting
to the emergency detection system one
general "Sound system fault" for any of the
fault conditions listed in 5.3 that may occur
within the sound system.
Compliant, if properly installed using trigger
outputs. Responsibility of the installer.
The link between a fire detection and alarm
system and the voice alarm system is of crucial
importance in maintaining the integrity of
overall operation. It may be desirable on larger
systems, where distributed control equipment
is used, to provide a link at each control
equipment location rather than to rely on a
central location. Each link shall be monitored.
The voice alarm system shall be capable of
continuing to broadcast alarm messages,
which have been initiated by the fire detection
and alarm system, even in the event of a
subsequent fault in the interconnecting link
between the two systems (i.e. the voice alarm
system shall "latch" on receipt of a signal from
the fire detection and alarm system).
Interruption by higher priority broadcasts shall
still be possible.
N/a
In complex buildings in which actions, such as
initiation of evacuation signals, silencing of
alarm signals, etc., can be implemented at
remote voice alarm equipment, consideration
shall be given to whether there is a need for
such actions to be indicated at any central fire
detection and alarm control and indicating
equipment.
Responsibility of the installer.
