gtc110701 ARC
AMI Redundant Controller
GAI-TRONICS®
10962-001 and 10962-002
A Hubbell Company
Features
• Allows two GAI-Tronics Audio
Messenger Interface units to be
used in an “active / backup”
configuration
• May be used with either Page/Party® or
public address systems
• Single or dual configurations
Options
• Model 10962-001 — Single AMI Redundant Controller
• Model 10962-002 — Dual AMI Redundant Controller
The model 10962-001 and 10962-002 AMI Redundant
Controllers (ARCs) are designed for use with either GAITronics Page/Party® or public address systems when
redundant alarm tone/speech generators are required.
“active” alarm generator and the other AMI acts as the
“back-up.” Both AMIs are powered up and running. The
ARC module(s) determine which AMI is active and which
is the backup.
ARC modules work in conjunction with a pair of GAITronics Audio Messenger Interfaces (AMIs). Each AMI acts
as an alarm tone/speech generator to produce emergency tones and/or prerecorded speech messages.
During normal alarm operation, input contacts are
applied simultaneously to both the active and back-up
AMIs. The ARC module(s) allow only audio from the active
generator to play over the system speakers. The back-up
AMI is held in standby mode to prevent mixing of the two
AMI tone/speech messages.
The ARC and AMI devices can be connected in two different configurations depending on system requirements. If
both AMIs are to be installed at the same location, one
model 10962-002 ARC Module can be used to control
both AMIs. If the AMIs must be installed at separate locations, one model 10960-001 ARC Module is required at
each location. In either configuration, one AMI acts as the

In the event of the active AMI failing, the back-up AMI
becomes active and plays its audio over the system
speakers.
