1.1
Introduction
Purpose
The purpose of the Installation and User Instructions
Manual is to provide information required to install,
configure, operate and maintain a Plena Voice Alarm
System. A Plena voice alarm controller (system
controller) forms the heart of a Plena Voice Alarm
System. Unlike a basic system (see also the Basic System
Manual, 9922 141 10361), a Plena Voice Alarm System
may be configured, using all available units of the Plena
product line, including one or more routers, call stations
and call station extensions, to simultaneously serve and
manage up to 60 loudspeaker zones.
A Plena Voice Alarm System can be extensively
configured from a PC, running the Configuration
Software. How to use this software is described in the
Configuration Software Manual (9922 141 10381). In
this manual the Plena Voice Alarm System is further
referred to as “system”.

This Installation and User Instructions Manual is also
available as a digital document in the Adobe Portable
Document Format (PDF). All references to pages,
figures, tables, etc. in this digital document contain
hyperlinks, to quickly consult the referenced location.
1.3
Alerts
In this manual, four types of alerts are used. The alert
type is closely related to the effect that may be caused
when it is not observed. These alerts - from least severe
effect to most severe effect - are:
• Note

observing a note alert does not result in damage to
the equipment or personal injuries.
• Caution
The equipment can be damaged if the alert is not
being observed.
• Warning
Persons can be (severely) injured or the equipment
can be seriously damaged if the alert is not being
observed.
• Danger

Application examples
2.1
Introduction
In a Plena Voice Alarm System, any of the various units
offered by the Plena product family, can be combined
together, in order to satisfy with any of your specific
configuration requirements. This chapter provides a
number of examples, each describing a specific system
configuration. You can use these examples and quickly
adapt them to meet your own configuration
requirements.
2.1.1
Plena
The Plena Voice Alarm System is part of the Plena
product range. Plena provides public address solutions
for places where people gather to work, worship, trade
or simply enjoy themselves. It is a family of system
elements that are combined to create public address
systems tailored for virtually any application. The range
includes mixer, pre-, system- and booster amplifiers, a
source unit, digital message manager, feedback
suppressor, call stations, an ‘All-in-One’ system and a
voice alarm system. Each element is designed to
complement all others thanks to matched acoustical,
electrical and mechanical specifications.
2.1.2
Application areas
Typically, the Plena Voice Alarm System is used to
create small systems that must comply witih emergency
and evacuation standards, medium-sized systems in
which one call channel is enough and large systems that
consists of many small zones.
The application areas of a Plena Voice Alarm System
include:
• Schools, see section 2.2.
• Swimming pools, see section 2.3.
• Shopping malls, see section 2.4.
• Hotels, see section 2.5.
Other areas include: factories, high-rise buildings, office
buildings, recreational facilities and small airports.
2.2
Application: School
2.2.1
Introduction
en | 11
Schools are typical example of applications with a large
number of zones each with a relatively low output
power requirement per zone. The main priorities are
speech intelligibility and compliance with IEC60849
standard (or equivalent).
2.2.2
Requirements
In addition to mandatory voice alarm functionality for
evacuating staff and students, Econtroller systems for
schools should also include chime tones for notifying
the start/finish of lessons, plus public address
functionality for individually calling classrooms or
public area. BGM is not essential. Since a classroom has
a low ambient noise level, one loudspeaker is usually
sufficient, keeping the total power requirement
relatively low. Outside areas such as playgrounds and
sports fields will require weatherproof horn
loudspeakers.
table 2.1: Summary of requirements
Requirements
30 zones (typically 20 to 60 zones).
Speech intelligibility is the main priority.
Low power requirement (one loudspeaker) per
classroom.
Fireman’s panel by main entrance.
Call station in main office.
Additional public address functions such as chime
tones desirable.
BGM in recreation areas is optional.
2.2.3
Solution
The Plena voice alarm controller handles message
routing to 6 zones, the remaining 24 zones require four
additional 6-zone routers. The office is equipped with a
call station plus keypads for individually addressing
zones, while a fireman’s panel (with overall priority) is
built in by the main entrance.
2.2.4
Power requirements
The voice alarm controller features a built-in 240 W
booster amplifier, making it possible to drive up to 40
loudspeakers with a power handling capacity of 6 W
each. This is sufficient for a medium-sized high school
with 24 classrooms, four toilets/changing rooms, a staff
Bosch Security Systems | 2004-06 | 9922 141 10371en
Plena Voice Alarm System | Installation and User Instructions | Application examples
meeting room and two offices, each requiring a single
loudspeaker. The canteen, assembly hall, playing fields
and corridors typically require more loudspeakers per
zone. An additional Plena booster amplifier is used as a
spare amplifier.

Application: Swimming pool
2.3.1
Introduction
2.3.3
en | 14
Solution
Swimming pools and other indoor sports and
recreational facilities are typical examples of smaller
applications with few zones. The main priorities are
excellent speech intelligibility and compliance with
IEC60849 standard (and its national equivalents),
although music in different areas is optional.
The Plena voice alarm controller handles routing to up
to 6 zones, so no additional routers are required. The
office/reception is equipped with a call station plus
keypad for individually addressing zones, while a
fireman’s panel (with overall priority) is built in by the
emergency exit. The Plena voice alarm system
is a two-channel system, so BGM can still be provided
in zones not receiving a call.
2.3.2
2.3.4
Requirements
An Econtroller system for a swimming pool requires
voice alarm functionality with public address
functionality for regular announcements and
background music (optional). To ensure that all visitors
in the relatively noisy pool area hear emergency
messages, the power output for that zone is relatively
high. Other areas, such as the changing rooms and
offices, have lower power requirements.

loudspeakers with a power handling capacity of 6 W
each. The pool area requires highpower music horn
loudspeakers qualified for use in a high humidity
atmosphere. The snack bar uses cabinet loudspeakers
for music reproduction. The zones are defined as
indicated in the table. An additional Plena booster
amplifier is used for two-channel operation and as a
spare amplifier.

Application: Shopping mall
2.4.4
2.4.1
Introduction
Each zone will have varying power requirements,
ranging from small shops with a single loudspeaker to
department stores with several floors and more
loudspeakers. Parking garages and open-air walkways
will require weatherproof sound projectors or horn
loudspeakers. To facilitate phased evacuation from
different levels of the shopping center, public areas are
divided into zones. Additional Plena booster amplifiers
are incorporated to provide additional power, twochannel operation and for use as a spare amplifier.
Shopping malls are typical example of applications with
a large number of zones with varying output power
requirements per zone. The priorities are speech
intelligibility and compliance with IEC60849 standard
(and its national equivalents).

In addition to mandatory voice alarm functionality for
evacuating the public and shop personnel, an
Econtroller system for shopping centers can have BGM
for the public areas. It should be possible to individually
call each shop or store. During emergency messages, the
volume override of each individual shop is engaged.
Additional public address functionality for making
general public announcements is an optional
requirement.

54 zones (typically up to 60 zones)
Speech intelligibility is the main priority
Variable power requirement per zone
Call station in security control room
Additional public address functionality
(nonemergency)
BGM in public areas
BGM music with local override in shops
2.4.3
Solution
A Plena voice alarm controller handles routing to 6
zones, the remaining 48 zones require eight 6-zone
routers. The security control room is equipped with a
remote control panel and call station plus keypads for
individually addressing zones and BGM for the public
areas, while the controller unit and routers are located
in a fire-resistant cabinet or basement. Fireman’s panel
(with overall priority) is built in close to the main
entrance or emergency exit (subject to relevant local
regulations). The Plena voice alarm system is a twochannel system, so BGM can still be provided in zones
not receiving a call.

Uplink to Preasideo
In large voice alarm system configurations, as in big
shopping malls, it is possible to have a Plena system
integrated with a Preasideo system. An uplink from a
Plena system to a Preasideo system can be established
by interconnecting a Preasideo audio output with the
Plena mic/line input with VOX functionality.
Emergency calls issued from the Preasideo system, are
then broadcast on the Plena system. For this purpose the
Plena mic/line input with VOX functionality should be
assigned the highest possible priority level (14).
Note
Refer to the Configuration Software Manual
(9922 141 10381) for details about configuring
priority levels.

Application: Hotel
2.5.4
2.5.1
Introduction
The system controller features a built-in 240 W booster
amplifier, able to drive up to 40 loudspeakers (6 W).
Additional Plena booster amplifiers are incorporated to
provide additional power, two-channel operation and
spare amplification. To facilitate phased evacuation
from different floors of the hotel, guest areas are divided
into separate zones, each fitted with 13 ceiling
loudspeakers in the corridors. The bar uses cabinet
loudspeakers, while the parking garage uses
weatherproof horn loudspeakers. The zones are defined
as shown in the table opposite.
Smaller hotels are typical examples of applications with
relatively few zones, each with a medium to high output
power requirement. The priorities are speech
intelligibility and compliance with IEC60849 standard.
2.5.2
Requirements
In addition to mandatory voice alarm functionality for
evacuating guests and staff, an Econtroller system for a
hotel should also include BGM in the restaurant, bar
and lobby, plus public address functionality for general
paging. To ensure that all guests hear an emergency
message, the power output per zone is relatively high.
Outside areas such as car parking garages, require
weatherproof horn loudspeakers.

Solution
A Plena voice alarm controller handles routing to up to
6 zones, the additional 6 zones require a router. Both
the reception and office are equipped with call stations
plus keypads for individually addressing zones, while a
fireman’s panel (with overall priority) is built in by the
emergency exit. The Plena Voice Alarm System is a
two-channel system, so BGM can still be provided in
zones not receiving a call.

Voice Alarm Controller
Voice alarm controller
The voice alarm controller (LBB1990/00) is the heart of
the Plena Voice Alarm System. The voice alarm
controller (further referred to as “controller”) centrally
manages and distributes emergency calls, business calls
and background music (BMG). A single controller is
able to serve and manage 6 loudspeaker zones. If more
zones are to be served, extra routers can be connected
(see section 3.3). Like this, up to a maximum of 60 zones
can be served. The controller is equipped with an
internal booster (see section 3.2.4) and an integrated
message manager (see section 3.2.5). All Plena units to
be used, can be connected to the central controller.

Trigger inputs
The rearside of the controller provides a terminal block
for the connection of 6 EMG and 6 business trigger
inputs. The EMG trigger inputs have a higher priority in
being served, than the business trigger inputs. The
trigger inputs can be used to signal events to the
controller. To each trigger input, a prerecorded message
can be assigned and broadcast to one or more zones or
zonegroups.
Bosch Security Systems | 2004-06 | 9922 141 10371en
Loudspeaker zones
The controller can serve 6 loudspeaker zones. In
compliance with IEC60849, the supply to each zone is
redundantly designed. For this purpose, on the rearside
of the controller, there are two zone output terminal
blocks (A and B). To connect the zone outputs, refer to
section 4.8.

BGM. Optionally, a spare external booster can be
connected (see also section 3.3.2). The external
booster will only be activated when the internal
booster fails.
• In 2-channel mode, an external booster (see also
section 3.3.2) must be connected to the controller.
The internal booster of the controller amplifies the
BGM and the external booster amplifies the calls. In
2-channel mode, calls do not interrupt the BGM.
If one or more routers (see also section 3.3) are
connected to the controller, to each router, two
additional external boosters can be connected. See also
section 3.3.2.
3.2.5
Internal message manager
The controller has an internal message manager, which
manages and distributes all prerecorded messages and
chimes. Up to 255 prerecorded messages can be stored
as wave files (.wav) in an EEPROM, and can be used
both in emergency and in business calls. Wave files can
be created and uploaded to the message manager, from
a PC running the Configuration Software.

and BGM. In 1-channel mode, calls will interrupt the
Bosch Security Systems | 2004-06 | 9922 141 10371en
Supervision
The controller integrates all required supervision
features, in accordance with the international standard
IEC60849 applicable for emergency systems. Various
functions of the controller are supervised. Supervision is
switched ON by default. Supervision can be switched
OFF by setting the supervision DIP switch in the OFF
position (see section 5.3). If supervision is enabled, any
failing function will cause the controller to enter the
fault state and the corresponding fault indicator is
turned ON (see also section 7.2).

Router
A single controller can serve and manage 6 loudspeaker
zones. To extend the number of zones, one or more
routers (LBB1992/00) can be connected. In total, 6 extra
routers can be connected to a controller, each adding 6
extra loudspeaker zones. As a consequence, in its
maximum configuration, a Plena Voice Alarm System
can simultaneously serve and manage up to 60
loudspeaker zones. If the power supplied by the
controller is not sufficient, two additional external
boosters can be connected to each router (see also
section 3.3.2).

External boosters
A router does not have an internal booster. If the power,
supplied by the controller, is not sufficient, two
additional external boosters (1 and 2) can be connected
to a router. Multiple boosters can be connected to
amplify calls and BGM or just to serve as backup
boosters. The function of a booster depends on the
mode for which the controller is configured:
• In 1-channel mode, external booster 1 is additional
to the controller’s internal booster (see section 3.2.4)
to amplify calls and BGM.
• In 2-channel mode, external booster 2 is additional
to the controller’s external booster (see section 3.2.4)
to amplify calls.
To connect external boosters, see section 4.15.3.2.

Connecting loudspeakers
The controller has six 100 V loudspeaker connectors to
connect and serve maximum six loudspeaker zones
(Z1 - Z6). Each loudspeaker connector is designed dualredundant (A and B). In a fully redundant system,
loudspeaker lines should be connected to both the A, as
well as the B connector.
Business calls, emergency calls and BGM are
simultaneously transmitted to a zone over both
loudspeaker lines (A and B). If one of the loudspeaker
lines fails, it is still possible to use the remaining
loudspeaker line. See figure 4.6 for connection details.
Caution
Do not connect more than 5 loudspeakers to
the same loudspeaker connector.

4.10.2 Connecting the mic/line input
with VOX functionality
The voice alarm controller has 1 mic/line input with
voice-activated (VOX) functionality (see figure 4.12).
This input has two sockets; one balanced XLR socket
and a balanced 6.3 mm jack socket. The signals from
both sockets are mixed to form a single input signal.

figure 4.12: Mic/line input with VOX functionality
Typically, the mic/line input with VOX functionality is
used to connect an additional emergency microphone
or to interface with another emergency sound system
(e.g. a Praesideo system). Depending on the
configuration (see section 4.6), the mic/line input
automatically starts an emergency call if the input level
> -20 dBr
(100 mV for line and 100 µV for microphone) or if the
VOX switch is closed (see figure 4.13 for connection
details).

Connecting line output
The voice alarm controller has one line output (see
figure 4.14). This output has a double cinch socket. Both
cinch sockets contain the same, mono signal, which
consists of the current BGM and calls. The line output
can be used to connect the controller to a recording
device (e.g. a tape-deck).

Connecting trigger outputs
The controller has 3 trigger output contacts. The trigger
output contacts (see figure 4.15) can be used to indicate
the current state of the system to third-party equipment,
to trigger particular actions, e.g. activating a signalling
light or a beeper if the system has entered the
emergency state (see section 6.6).

of the states, as mentioned in table 4.8, the
corresponding output contact is energized (NO is
connected to COM).

4.12.1 EMG contact
4.14
The EMG contact is activated on entering the
emergency state. The emergency state is entered when
the EMG button is pressed (see section 6.6) or when an
EMG trigger input is activated (see section 4.7.1).
A call station (LBB1956/00) is connected to the
controller using a CAT-5 twisted pair RS-485 cable with
RJ45 connectors on each cable end. The controller has
two shielded RJ45 sockets allowing 2 call stations to be
directly connected to the controller. To connect more
call stations, use the two looped-through RJ45
connectors on a call station. Like this, in total, 8 call
stations can be part of a system. See figure 4.17 for
connection details.
4.12.2 Fault contact
The fault contact is activated on entering the fault state
(see section 7.1). The fault state is entered when a line
fault (see section 7.2.1) or a system fault (see section
7.2.2) occurs.

Note
Supervision is only necessary for systems that
have to comply with the IEC60849 evacuation
standard.
If network supervision is enabled (see section 5.3.3), all
routers and Remote Control Panels that are connected
to the controller are supervised. Routers and RCPs are
connected to the controller using an RS-485 CAN
interface. If any of the CAN stations fails during the
network check, a network error is reported.
5.3.3.1 Overview
The supervised functions can be configured with a PC
running the Configuration Software. Using the
Configuration Software, supervision for each function
can be turned ON or OFF. The default settings are
mentioned in table 5.2.
5.3.3.4 Message supervision
If supervision is enabled (see section 5.3.3), the internal
message manager of the controller is supervised. This
message supervision consists of a check-sum mechanism
for the wave player and a pilot tone check for the audio
path.

5.3.3.5 Line supervision
If supervision is enabled (see section 5.3.3), all
loudspeaker lines are supervised, including the
loudspeaker lines of any possibly connected routers.
Line supervision consists of:
• Short-circuit supervision.
• Impedance supervision.
• Short-to-ground supervision.
Note
Refer to the Configuration Software Manual
(9922 141 10381) for details about adjusting the
supervision settings.
5.3.3.2
Processor supervision
If supervision is enabled (see section 5.3.3), the
processor of the controller is supervised by a watchdog.
If the watchdog receives a reset trigger, the Processor reset
indicator on the front panel of the controller turns ON,
the program memory is checked and the processor
resumes operation within 10 seconds. When the fault is
acknowledged and reset the indicator turns OFF.
5.3.3.3
Network supervision
Bosch Security Systems | 2004-06 | 9922 141 10371en
Short-circuit supervision
If supervision is enabled (see section 5.3.3), the
controller continuously monitors all loudspeaker lines in
the system for short-circuits. If a short-circuit with a load
impedance of < 10 Ω is detected, the line is considered
to be short-circuited. In that case, the line output is shut
down within 200 ms.
Impedance supervision
If supervision is enabled (see section 5.3.3), the
controller measures the impedance of all loudspeaker
lines in the system at regular time intervals (by default,
once every 100 seconds). The measured values are
compared with the reference values (see section 5.3) that
are stored in the controller. If the difference is bigger
than a preset differential accuracy (by default, 15%), the
line is considered faulty.
Plena Voice Alarm System | Installation and Operating | Configuration
en | 49
If battery power supervision is enabled, the availability
of the battery power is supervised.
Note
For a correct impedance supervision:
Do not connect more than 5 loudspeakers to
the same loudspeaker line and make sure that
all loudspeakers, that are connected to the
same loudspeaker line, have the same
impedance.
Using the Configuration Software, it is possible to:
• Adjust the measurement interval by choosing one of
the predefined values (30 seconds - 24 hours).
• Adjust the preset differential accuracy (5 - 20%).
• Define a preset starting time, to automatically trigger
an impedance supervision measurement, once every
day.
Note
Refer to the Configuration Software Manual
(9922 141 10381) for details about configuring
line supervision.
Short-to-ground supervision
If supervision is enabled (see section 5.3.3), the
controller continuously monitors all loudspeaker lines in
the system for short-to-ground situations. If a leakage
current > 30 + 15 mA is detected in a line, all lines are
considered faulty.
5.3.3.6 Emergency microphone supervision
If supervision is enabled (see section 5.3.3), the audio
path of the emergency microphone is monitored from
the microphone’s capsule to the input connector on the
controller.
5.3.3.7 Trigger input supervision
If trigger input supervision is enabled, the EMG trigger
inputs of the controller and of any connected routers,
are supervised. The bussiness trigger inputs are not
supervised.
5.3.3.8 Mains power supervision
If supervision is enabled (see section 5.3.3), the
availability of the mains power is supervised.
5.3.3.9
Battery power supervision
Bosch Security Systems | 2004-06 | 9922 141 10371en
5.3.3.10 Internal booster supervision
If supervision is enabled (see section 5.3.3), the internal
booster of the controller is supervised. The function of
this booster depends on the position of the 2ch operation
switch (see also section 5.3.4).

is supervised.
5.3.3.12 External booster supervision
If supervision is enabled (see section 5.3.3) and the
2ch operation switch (see section 5.3.4) is in the ON
position, the external booster is supervised. In 2-channel
mode, the external amplifier is always the call booster.

2-channel operation
If the 2ch operation switch (see figure 5.1) is in the ON
position, the controller operates in the 2-channel mode.
If the 2ch operation switch is in the OFF position, the
controller operates in the 1-channel mode.
5.3.4.1 1-channel mode
In the 1-channel mode, all calls and BGM are amplified
by the internal booster of the controller. If desired, an
external booster can be connected for spare switching
(see section 3.9). In 1-channel mode, all calls will
interrupt the BGM. The external booster is not
supervised (see section 5.3.3.12).
Note
Refer to the Configuration Software Manual
(9922 141 10381) to configure the mic/line
input with VOX functionality.

dealer.
In accordance with IEC60849, the international
evacuation and emergency standard, a number of
functions of a Plena voice alarm system, are supervised.
If supervision is enabled (see section 5.3.3) and a
supervised function fails, the voice alarm controller
enters the fault state. When entering the fault state, the
following events are simultaneously initiated:
• The controller’s integrated beeper starts.
• The fault contact is activated (see also section 4.12.2).
• A LED on the front of the controller, indicating the
fault, is turned ON.
To troubleshoot a fault, see section 7.3.
