RigCom / EZ Page
RigCom is a common-talk communication system designed for hazardous areas
on land and offshore oil rigs. The system is simple to use with push-to-talk, releaseto-listen operation, and will withstand the harsh effects of the environment. The
system consists of an explosion-proof case which houses the electronics, and an
explosion-proof loudspeaker also functioning as the microphone. Optional accessories include a gooseneck microphone, footswitch, and the capability to remote
mount the speaker. RigCom is also available in a hands-free model.
The RigCom is also compatible with GAI-Tronics' EZ Page. EZ Page is a commontalk communications system designed for a wide variety of rugged applications.
EZ Page provides a low cost alternative to the RigCom in non-hazardous, industrial
applications. EZ Page configurations are identical to RigCom: Master / Slave and
Common Line.
Driller's Intercom Systems provide communications between drill operators
and rig personnel. The system's digital architecture is used to link the
stations with the central intercom server. The server unit includes station
line cards, audio interfaces and relay interfaces allowing ease of connection
to PA, Radio or Alarm systems. Additionally, tone generators and telephone/radio interfaces may be added to create complex loudspeaking and
PA systems.
The intercom stations are available as explosion-proof, weatherproof or desktop units.
The stations have direct access by using the keypad, pre-programmed keys or speed dials.
This allows the user the capability of performing point to point private calls. Additionally, the
system may be configured to allow group calls, conference calls and all call announcements.
Digital Intercom
Centra Page/Party®
GAI-Tronics' Centra Page system provides dependable paging and party line communications for rugged and hazardous industrial facilities. Centra Page features centrallylocated electronics which provide for easy maintenance. Standard Centra Page cabinets
can support up to 30 handset stations and in most cases up to 60 paging speakers.
Alarms and telephone interfacing can also be added to Centra Page.
All stations are homerun wired to
the central cabinet, where station
status is monitored. To maximize
flexibility, stations are available in
Desktop, Desk-Edge, Weatherproof, Indoor, and Flush Mount
The Central Cabinet must be located in a non-hazardous area.
Stations and speakers may then be located in both hazardous
and non-hazardous locations, depending on the method used to install the wiring.

ADVANCE/SmartSeries™ / Page/Party®
SmartSeries™ system field devices utilize the latest technology in data
communications to significantly improve system integrity and
functionality. By interfacing with the SmartSeries™ control unit, the
devices exchange fault and activity messages. The SmartStatus feature
provides a graphical display of the entire communication system, making
the system very user-friendly.
Current faults are displayed or logged, depending on the system
configuration, to provide maintenance personnel a means to diagnose
equipment problems. For example, a handset left off-hook can degrade
an audio channel. To alleviate this problem, the stations report this
condition and are programmed to go electronically on-hook after a
pre-set time period configured at start-up.
Other system functions monitored by the control unit include use of the page
line, integrity of the system cable, and the functionality of the station amplifier
and associated speakers. Supervision of these features significantly reduces the
costs associated with maintaining your communication system.
With emergency notification as a major industrial concern, GAI-Tronics offers the
ADVANCE Emergency Notification System. The ADVANCE Control Unit interfaces
with GAI-Tronics standard Page/Party® or SmartSeries™ stations to provide all of
the features required for an Emergency Notification System that you and your
employees can depend on to give you peace of mind.
SmartSeries™ systems are fully adaptable to a variety of facility sizes, from a few
handsets to several hundred. Using SmartLink technology, multiple independent
communication systems can be interfaced and monitored from a central location.
