VECP Series
Voice Evacuation Systems
Description
Sigcom’s VECP Series includes the VECP-25 and VECP-50
voice evacuation control panels and the DVS-RM remote
microphones. The VECP-25 provides 25 Watts of output
power. The VECP-50 provides 50 Watts of output power.
Both VECP controls have a built-in digital message unit,
UL listed power supply, and a supervised microphone.
The digital message unit includes 2 voice messages and
4 field selectable alert tones. VECP control panels provide
four Class A or Class B supervised speaker circuits which
are configurable for either 25 or 70.7Vrms speaker loop
voltage.
Applications
The VECP Series control panels are designed for the
upgrade of existing fire alarm systems to add voice
evacuation capability without replacing the FACP, as well
as for new system. Typical applications include places
of assembly such as schools, theatres, places of worship,
office buildings, restaurants, and military facilities. In
addition, a built-in auxiliary audio input enables VECP
Series to interface with existing telephone paging
systems increasing the overall functionality of the system.
Operation
VECP Series control panels are extremely easy to add to
an existing fire alarm system interfacing directly to any
addressable or conventional FACP. Both models have

two alarm inputs, one triggered by reverse polarity
(NAC output) and one by supervised dry contact
trigger. Additional features include a supervised integral
microphone plus the option for remote supervised
microphone; common alarm and fault relay outputs, an
on-board switch for system test, and digital signal meters
to display the power and voltage output on the speaker
circuits.
