Atlas Learn System Function Description
The versatile AL-MAGPIE microphone performs the ­functions of a wireless
microphone and a microphone volume control. It can be used as a Handheld
Microphone, a Lapel Microhone with included Lanyard (AL-LANYARD), or a Belt
Pack Microphone with optional AL-HSM headset. Each AL-MAGPIE has a switch
located under the battery door used to set its IR Channel to either A or B. One
AL-MAGPIE must be set to Channel A and the other AL-MAGPIE must be set to
Channel B. The system will not function properly if there are two AL-MAGPIEs
set to the same IR channel.
Also located under the battery door is the LOCKOUT switch. When this is
engaged all function buttons are disabled and the unit can be used as a
microphone only.
The Power button needs to be pressed for three seconds to turn the unit On or
Off.
When the two Panic buttons are pressed simultaneously, a signal is sent to the
AL2430 Receiver / Amplifier. This closes its Panic Output relay. The Panic Output
relay can be connected to an external system, for example: the school's Paging
/ Intercom system to alert someone of an event in the classroom that requires
immediate attention.
