Input 2 also has a VOX possibility. When one or both
inputs are configured for priority, the attenuation
(reduction) of the cinch input can be set between
‑2 dB (little attenuation) and -∞ dB (mute). This
provides a talk-over or voice-over function.
Input channels 1 and 2 also feature selectable speech
filters to enhance the clarity of announcements.
Labels and colored pins
More unique features are available such as a detachable
label where the user can write the names for inputs,
music sources and zones. These labels can then be
mounted on the front, protected by the clear window.
Features
Another useful feature is to indicate preferred settings on
the front panel by inserting colored pins at the preset
levels of all knobs. You can then instruct a user to set all
the controls to the green pins to configure the system for
their particular use. A second user can set all controls to
the red pins for their configuration.

sources
The Plena mixer is a high performance, professional public
address mixer with modern state of the art features.
Combined with the PLE-1P120-EU or PLE-1P240-EU
amplifiers, you can build an easy-to-operate yet powerful
and flexible public address system. All this without
sacrificing features such as ducking, priority, and
flexibility. The mixer fulfills a wide variety of public
address requirements yet is surprisingly affordable.
Separate music inputs are available with their own input
selector, volume control and tone control. The user can
choose a music source such as a CD player or radio (like
the PLN-DVDT), and set the music level. A desired sound
for the music source can be set separate from the mic/
line inputs. So if the music requires boosted low
frequencies, the microphone voices will still be clear – a
truly unique feature in its class.
The tone controls also have the following unique features:
•
The mixer features separate tone controls for mic/line
inputs and music inputs so the microphone voice can
be specifically optimized for excellent speech or
singing
• The tone controls for music enable the most suitable
music reproduction
In addition, the tone controls are not standard bass and
treble controls; our experience has enabled us to develop
a tone control that can be used as a traditional tone
control with high and low control, but with a powerful
contour that addresses the problems that are found in
real situations.
The tone control for the microphone and line inputs:
•
Functions
Inputs
•
boosts warmth in voices without boosting rumble, and
cuts rumble without losing warmth in the low
frequencies
boosts sparkle without adding sharpness in the high
frequencies when boosting, and reduces harshness
and sharpness without reducing clarity when cutting
All Mic/line inputs can be switched between microphone
level and line level sensitivity. The inputs are balanced and
can also be used unbalanced. Phantom power can be
switched on to provide power to condenser microphones.

Input 1 can be activated by contact closure on the PTT
(push to talk) input, or the input can be switched
automatically if a signal is fed to the input, i.e. if
someone speaks into the microphone (VOX
activation). A 2-tone chime can be configured to
precede an announcement

Integration
A telephone / 100 V emergency input with VOX activation
is provided for easy integration with another PA system or
a telephone paging system. It has its own preset volume
control and overrides all other inputs, including call
station and inputs 1 and 2.
Installation/Configuration Notes
Zones
The mixer has two zone outputs. The music can be
switched on and off in the zones via the front panel and
optional wall panel. Announcements from the PLE-2CS
two-zone call station can be routed to zone 1 or zone 2, or
both. Announcements from the tel/100 V input or inputs 1
& 2 are routed to both zones. Input 1 can be used for a
PLE-1CS all-call call station or any other microphone or
call station with a PTT contact. The unit also has a line
output to connect the pre-amplifier output before zone
selection, making it possible to create a third zone. This
output can be switched to music only, for example, so
that music on hold can be provided for the telephone
system. Loop-through input and output connections
enable external sound processing equipment (e.g. an
equalizer or Plena feedback suppressor) while maintaining
a balanced connection to the amplifiers.

▶ Separate tone controls for microphones and music
sources
You can set the desired sound for the music source
separate from the mic/line inputs. So if the music needs
boosted low frequencies, this does not lead to muddy
sounding voices from the microphones. A truly unique

away from the user and putting it where it belongs, inside
the equipment. Providing a crisp call or clear music is as
easy as turning on the radio.
The amplifier is also surprisingly affordable, without
sacrificing features such as ducking, priority and
flexibility.
Functions
Microphone and line inputs
All Mic/line inputs can be switched between microphone
level and line level sensitivity. The inputs are balanced but
can be used unbalanced. Phantom power can be switched
on to provide power to condenser microphones.
The unique tone controls provide separate control for
mic/line inputs and music inputs so that the voice on the
microphones can be specifically optimized for excellent
speech or singing. Correspondingly, the tone controls for
background music provide the most appropriate music
reproduction.
In addition, the tone controls are not standard bass and
treble controls. Our experience has led us to develop a
tone control that can be used as a traditional tone control
with high and low control, but has a powerful contour that
addresses the problems found in real situations.
The tone control for the microphone and line inputs
boosts warmth in voices without boosting rumble and
cuts rumble without loosing warmth in the low
frequencies. In the high frequencies, the tone control
boosts sparkle without adding sharpness, but when
cutting is first, cuts harshness and sharpness without
reducing clarity.
Input channels 1 and 2 can take priority over all other
microphone and music inputs:

The tone control for the music inputs boosts deep bass
first without making the sound boomy, and cuts rumble
without loosing warmth in the low frequencies. In the high
frequencies the tone control is similar to the microphone
inputs, with slightly different frequencies to suit music
reproduction.
Back
For easy integration with another PA system or a
telephone paging system, a telephone / 100 V emergency
input with VOX activation is provided. It has its own
preset volume control and overrides all other inputs,
including call station and inputs 1 and 2. The unit also has
a line output to add amplifiers for larger systems, with
more output power, this output can be switched to music
only so that for instance music on hold can be provided
for the telephone system. Insert (loop through) input and
output connections enable external sound processing
equipment, such as an equalizer or the Plena feedback
suppressor, to be connected between the preamplifier
and the power amplifier stages.

Power
These Plena mixer amplifiers come in 120 and 240 Watts
output power. This power is directly available on 100 V
constant voltage connections and on a low impedance
connection for an 8 ohm load. Moreover, the amplifiers
have a separate 100 V call-only output channel for
addressing areas where only priority announcements are
required. The call-only output can also be used for 3-wire
remote, volume control override.
Zones
The mixer amplifier has two zone outputs. The music can
be switched on and off in the zones via the front panel
and optional wall panel. Announcements from the
PLE-2CS two-zone call station can be routed to zone 1 or
zone 2, or both. Announcements from the tel/100 V input
or inputs 1 & 2 are routed to both zones. Input 1 can be
used for a PLE-1CS all-call call station or any other
microphone or call station with a PTT contact.

The PLE-1P120-EU and PLE-1P240-EU are two high-power
plug-and-play cost effective power amplifiers that deliver
120 and 240 Watts to constant voltage or 8 ohm loads.
Built with premium quality and protections, they offer
basic functionality at a budget price. The amplifiers offer
straight 1 V and 100 V line in, and 70 V, 100 V and 8 ohms
out. They can extend the power of the PLE- series mixer
amplifiers or be combined with the PLE-10M2-EU mixer,
or work anywhere where more power on an existing 100 V
line is needed or when a line level signal is provided.
Functions
Protection
The amplifier is protected against overload and short
circuits. A limiter protects the amplifier and loudspeaker
against accidental overdriving. A temperature-controlled
fan ensures proper cooling without producing acoustic
noise at lower output levels.
Power input and output
The unit operates both on mains power and on a 24 V
battery power supply for emergency back up, with
automatic switchover. The amplifier also has a built‑in
charger to charge the connected battery. The system has
a balanced input and loop‑through facility. This makes it
easy to connect multiple amplifiers. The secondary input

The priority is automatic i.e. the call station nearest the
mixer has priority and can override a call station further
from the mixer. When a call is being made by a higher
priority call station, a yellow light will display on the lower
priority call stations.
Dip switches and status
DIP switches at the base of the call station select
different microphone gain levels, chimes, and the speech

the controls to the silver pins to configure the system for
their particular use. A second user can set all controls to
the red pins for their configuration.
Power
▶ Wide range of output power (60, 120 and 240 Watts)
The mixer amplifiers come in 60, 120 and 240 Watt output
power. This power is directly available on 100 V (70 V for
US versions) constant voltage connections and on a low
impedance connection for a 4 ohm load. Moreover, the
amplifiers have a separate 100 V (70 V for US versions)
call-only output channel for addressing areas where only
priority announcements are required. The call-only output
can also be used for 3-wire remote, volume control
override.
▶ 2‑tone chime

Features
▶ 4 microphone / line inputs, plus music source input
▶ Announcement only output, 3‑wire volume override
These Plena Economy mixer amplifiers are professional
public address units with modern state‑of‑the‑art features.
They are easy to use, taking the complexity away from the
user and putting it where it belongs, inside the
equipment. Providing a crisp call or clear music is as easy
as turning on the radio. Offering the essentials of public
address in an affordable package.
Functions
An LED VU meter monitors the master output. A
headphone socket, below the VU meter, provides the
mixer output. For total reliability and ease of use, a limiter
is integrated into the output stage to restrict output if the
user applies too much signal.

LBB 1925/10 Plena
System Pre-Amplifier
Features
▶ Six-zone system pre-amplifier, with single or dual
channel operation
▶ Two input channels for call stations
▶ Universal input for microphone/line, with speech
optimized tone control
▶ Three inputs for BGM selection and music optimized
tone control
▶ Front panel zone selection for BGM and call station
zone selection for calls
▶ PC and trigger inputs for automated calls, alarm
tones and chimes to selected zones
The Plena system pre-amplifier is a versatile, highperformance unit with call and mono BGM (background
music). It fulfills a wide variety of public address
requirements at a surprisingly low cost. It can provide
dual channel operation for simultaneous calls and BGM
for up to six different zones, using two Plena amplifiers.
The BGM channel provides three inputs on stereo cinchconnectors, converted to mono, with front panel
selection, volume control and bass and treble tone
controls with shelving characteristics optimized for music.
The BGM channel has a direct output on balanced XLR for
dual channel operation. It can also feed the master
output, with the lowest priority, for single channel
operation. Zone selector switches on the front panel
control the BGM routing. An overload protected 24 VDC
output provides power for driving external relays, often
making an external power supply unnecessary.
An emergency/telephone input with signal level detector
(VOX) and volume preset has the highest priority to all
zones. Two trigger inputs (contact closure) activate alarm
or time signals to pre-selected zones. Many different
chime tones are available. A PC audio input with RS-232
control provides software controlled zone configuration,
or automatic messaging in combination with the
LBB 1965/00 Plena Message Manager. There are six levels
of priority available for BGM, microphone, call stations,
trigger inputs and emergency input. A set of relays directs
the amplifier output(s) to different loudspeaker groups
(zone switching).
Each zone has a tri-state control on the front panel that
can turn it off, switch it to the call channel, or to the BGM
channel. The all‑call microphone input and emergency
activation override the call station selection on the call
channel. Each zone has separate priority overrides with
preset volume levels. This assures an appropriate
message volume, independent of any local volume
settings, such as for BGM. Both three‑wire and four‑wire
override schemes are supported. An override also
activates a voltage-free contact (call-active) available for
external control and monitoring. The master output
channel, or one of the input channels, can be monitored
through the headphone connector and/or the
LED VU‑meter.
Controls and indicators
Front
Functions
The call channel provides two inputs for the Plena call
stations, LBB 1941/00 (all-call) or LBB 1946/00 (sixzone), with loop-through capability, and universal,
balanced input. One is a 3-pin XLR connector for
microphone or line level (selectable), and the other is a 5pin DIN-connector with all‑call priority contact, which may
also be used to start one of the available chime attention
signals.
The microphone input has a selectable speech filter for
improved intelligibility, a volume control, and bass and
treble tone controls with shelving characteristics
optimized for speech. The call channel is available on the
balanced XLR master output.

Amplifier
For emergency and evacuation use, the following
functions are monitored: mains presence, battery present,
pilot tone presence, amplifier operation. Front panel LEDs
indicate the status of supervised functions. The LEDs of
pilot tone supervision and battery status can be switched
off for general public address use. Failsafe (normally
energized) relays are provided for each supervised
function. These relays are always active regardless of the
switches on the rear panel.
Input
The system has two balanced inputs with priority control,
each with a loop-through facility. This makes it easy to
connect remote systems that require priority control. An
additional 100 V line input is provided to connect the
amplifier to a 100 V loudspeaker line to provide more
power to remote locations.
▶ 120 W power amplifier in a compact housing
Gain or level control is located on the rear of the unit to
avoid accidental setting change. A meter with LED-bar
shows the output level.
▶ 70 V / 100 V and 8 ohm outputs
Output
▶ Dual inputs with priority switching

Controls and indicators
Front
The LBB 1930/20 is a powerful 120 W power amplifier in a
2U high 19” case for rack mounting or tabletop use. LEDs
on the front panel show the status of the amplifier:
power, audio output level, and supervised functions. This
high-performance unit fulfills a wide range of public
address requirements at a surprisingly low cost.
Functions
Dependability
The amplifier is protected against overload and short
circuits. A temperature-controlled fan ensures high
reliability at high output levels and low acoustic noise at
lower output levels. An overheat protection circuit
switches off the power stage and activates an LED on the
front panel, if the internal temperature reaches a critical
limit due to poor ventilation or overload.

LBB 1935/20 Plena Power
Amplifier
For emergency and evacuation use, the following
functions are monitored: mains presence, battery present,
pilot tone presence, amplifier operation. Front panel LEDs
indicate the status of supervised functions. The LEDs of
pilot tone supervision and battery status can be switched
off for general public address use. Failsafe (normally
energized) relays are provided for each supervised
function. These relays are always active regardless of the
switches on the rear panel.
Input
The system has two balanced inputs with priority control,
each with a loop-through facility. This makes it easy to
connect remote systems that require priority control. An
additional 100 V line input is provided to connect the
amplifier to a 100 V loudspeaker line to provide more
power to remote locations.
▶ 240 W power amplifier in a 2U high housing
Gain or level control is located on the rear of the unit to
avoid accidental setting change. A meter with LED-bar
shows the output level.

PLN‑1LA10 Plena Loop
Amplifier
For added ease, the loop amplifier is equipped with a
limiter that keeps the output field strength below the
prescribed 100 mA/m. This circuitry can also be set to an
automatic gain control (AGC) that amplifies weak signals
for enhanced intelligibility, while attenuating loud signals.
This ensures that all information is presented at a
comfortable listening level.
The unit has tone controls and a metal loss compensation
circuit to adjust the sound to the program material and
the environment. The controls have locks to prevent
unwanted access after they have been adjusted.
The Plena loop amplifier is stackable (master/slave
configuration) to cover very large areas, and supports low
spillover schemes. Its unique quadrate configuration
provides uniform field strengths even over multiple loops.

The Plena Loop Amplifier is a cost-effective amplifier
designed to drive a wire loop installed in the floor or
ceiling, covering an area of up to 600 m2 per amplifier.
This solution enables hearing-aid users in the area
enclosed by the wire loop to hear all announcements, or
music. Hearing-aid users can set their devices to the Tmode setting to receive the signal coming from the loop.
They receive announcements in excellent audio-quality,
without the background noise or reverberations that
normally impair intelligibility for people with hearing
disabilities.
Functions
The loop amplifier can be connected to a mixing
amplifier’s line level output, or it can accept up to two
microphone/line signals directly. A 100 V priority input is
available for uplink to a voice alarm system. This input can
be monitored for the presence of a pilot tone. The built-in
supervision monitors all key functions of the loop
amplifier, and the fault state is available on a fail-safe
relay. This makes it possible to use the Plena Loop
Amplifier in an IEC 60849 compliant system, and to
include the induction loop in the supervised transmission
paths.

For non assistive listening device users it is difficult to
verify the correct working of the inductive loop system.
The field strength has to be in well defined limits, not too
high or too low. Also if a user indicates an incorrect
functioning it may be cause by the hearing aid itself or
perhaps hum injected by other sources.
Color
Charcoal
By using the PLN-ILR the audio quality can be monitored
and the field strength can be set easily by observing the
two LEDs. To promote the use at the correct level, the
display showing field strength is on the side of the unit.
When a user holds the receiver up to eye level, the coil is
automatically placed in the same plane as the assistive
listening device. When used with a neck cord (included),
the orientation is also vertical so the lightweight unit can
be used for extended periods of time.

▶ System Overview
The Plena BGM source unit is the ideal high-quality source
for background music (BGM) in public address systems.
The unit consists of a DVD/CD-player and a digitally
controlled FM/AM tuner in a compact 2U-high, 19"
housing. It is typically used in shops, supermarkets,
restaurants, bars, canteens, gyms, showrooms, and other
places where BGM creates the right atmosphere. It
connects to almost any public address amplifier. The
unit's appearance is in line with the Bosch Plena range of
products.
Both the player and the tuner can operate simultaneously
on different outputs to facilitate two-channel BGM
distribution. The output level of both outputs can be
adjusted via rear panel presets. Combined output is also
possible, to connect to systems without input selection. In
the combined output mode the system defaults to the
tuner signal as long as the DVD/CD-player is not playing.
When the player is active, its signal overrides that of the
tuner.

The powerful 120 W output section has two transformerisolated, 100 V constant voltage outputs for driving 100 Vloudspeakers in two separate zones. The 100 V-technique
reduces line losses on longer distances and allows easy
parallel connection of multiple loudspeakers. Both zones
can be selected individually from the front panel, and the
output level for each zone can be individually set. Each
zone also has a low-voltage output for connecting 8 ohm,
transformerless loudspeakers (consumer-type). There is a
separate, 100 V call-only output for addressing an area
where announcements are necessary, but BGM is not
desired. A voltage-free call-active contact is available for
overriding local volume controls during priority calls, and
for other purposes. An LED meter monitors the output.

LBB 1965/00 Plena
Message Manager
The unit has 12 contact closure trigger inputs for
announcements. Each can be configured for a sequence of
up to four messages from those available. In this way
messages can be used in combination with other
messages, optimizing flexibility and storage space usage.
When used together with the six-zone LBB 1925/10 Plena
System Pre-Amplifier, a zone selection can be configured
for each trigger input. The message manager
communicates this selection to the LBB 1925/10 via an
RS-232 connection. Continuous activation of a trigger
input causes the corresponding message sequence to
repeat.
Trigger Inputs
Features
▶ Highly flexible stand‑alone digital message player
▶ Up to 12 messages and 12 trigger inputs
▶ Downloads messages from a PC in WAV format
▶ Compliant with standards for emergency sound
systems
▶ Zone control for Plena system preamplifier
LBB 1925/10
▶ Front panel control and remote control
The Plena message manager is a high performance, highly
versatile stand-alone digital message player. Applications
range from spot announcements in supermarkets and
theme parks to warning and evacuation messages in
emergency situations.
The trigger inputs have a serial priority, i.e., input 1 has
priority over input 2, input 2 over input 3, etc. The high
priority trigger inputs 1-6 are only accessible as contacts
on the rear panel to prevent accidental use. The lower
priority trigger inputs 7-12 are also available as trigger
switches on the front panel.
Integrity and Dependability
The LBB 1965/00 can also play emergency/evacuation
messages, as it fulfills the IEC 60849 standard. The
microcontroller continually checks the data integrity of
the system, and a watchdog circuit, in turn, checks the
microcontroller. The unit monitors the D/A converter with
a pilot tone, and the high priority trigger inputs (one to
six) for cable short circuits and breaks. A 24 V battery
backup connection with automatic fail-safe provides
continued operation if the mains power should fail. A
20 kHz pilot tone can be mixed with the output signal to
supervise the link to the next amplifier. This also works for
loudspeaker supervision in combination with 20 kHz
detectors. Any failure causes a red LED fault indication,
and activates a fault output contact.
Loop-through Facility
Functions
Messages
Up to 12 messages can be stored in the internal 64Mbit
EEPROM, without the need for data retention battery
backup. Each message can have any length within the
total available capacity. A PC uploads messages and
configurations via RS-232 to the unit, which can then
operate without a PC. The standard WAV format is used
for messages with sample rates of 8 kHz to 24 kHz with
16-bit word length (linear PCM). This gives up to
500 seconds of recording time with a CD‑quality signal-tonoise ratio. The use of linear PCM instead of a
compressed audio format, such as MP3, ADPCM and ulaw/A-law, ensures high-quality playback of all types of
audio signals, including sound effects and special tones,
such as attention chimes.
www.boschsecurity.com
The LBB 1965/00 provides a loop-through facility with
balanced XLR and unbalanced cinch inputs and outputs.
This allows the unit to be inserted into an existing audio
link. As long as no announcements are playing, the signal
input is routed to the output. If an announcement begins,
the input signal is interrupted and the announcement is
routed to the output.
Updating
Messages and configuration settings are uploaded from a
PC. After uploading, the trigger inputs 7-12 can be
configured by using the front panel switches, without the
need for a new upload or even a PC. Message content can
be monitored using the available headphone jack.

LBB 1968/00 Plena Feedback Suppressor
Features
▶ Patented feedback suppression algorithm
▶ Suppresses feedback before it occurs
▶ Automatically adapts to the acoustical situation
▶ Up to 12 dB additional gain before feedback occurs
The Plena feedback suppressor also features a built-in
automatic mixer for the two microphone inputs. In many
situations, such as on a rostrum, a pulpit or a conference
table, two microphones are used to capture the voice of a
moving speaker better, even though this increases the risk
of acoustic feedback. To counter this, the automatic mixer
in the Plena feedback suppressor reduces the gain of the
microphone with the lowest signal input and increases the
gain of the microphone with the highest signal input. This
way, it tracks the moving speaker for optimum speech
intelligibility, while maintaining a maximum feedback
margin by keeping the combined gain constant. The
automatic mixer function remains operational even when
the feedback suppressor is deactivated.

The Plena feedback suppressor uses a powerful DSP with
a patented algorithm to suppress acoustic feedback. It
actively filters out unwanted room reverberations using an
echo-cancellation and de-reverberation algorithm. By
adding masked (inaudible) noise to the output signal or by
shifting the frequency of the output signal by five hertz,
the Plena feedback suppressor is able to detect the
reverb component of the signal and remove it before
feedback occurs. This leaves the original signal intact.
Installation/Configuration Notes
LBB 1968/00 back view
Functions
The adaptive filter can be switched between fast mode
and accurate mode. The fast mode is for situations where
the microphone position changes over time, such as in a
discussion system with multiple switching microphones.
The accurate mode is for situations with a fixed
microphone position, such as on a pulpit where the
acoustical environment is more stable. The adaptive filter
is allowed to converge more slowly, suppressing
reverberation components even more effectively.
Depending on the acoustical environment and the chosen
mode of operation, up to 12dB of additional gain is
possible before acoustic feedback occurs.
