Sonix Communication Systems CROUSE-HINDS SERIES Sonix Eol 8 Tu PA/GA Power Amplifier End of Line Unit Product overview Sonix Eol 8 Tu unit is a compact, high efficiency amplifier loop monitoring device. Designed to work with the 350-d high efficiency amplifiers, the Sonix Eol 8 Tu unit securely houses the circuitry and management for loudspeakers connected to the Sonix PA/GA system and external field cabling. Product features • Compact and efficient DIN rail mount fixing • Rapid reporting of line fault conditions • Low rack footprint • Design focused MTBF / MTTR • Monitors and reports on 8 amplifiers • Operating on self- healing ring • Series connectivity of up to 8 loops per amplifier • Dual RJ45 connectivity for easy maintenance • Out of band discrete monitoring signals • Field cable lightening protection • Real time high integrity field cable monitoring Sonix PA/GA autonomously monitors and supervises the amplifier, loudspeaker cable insulation and loop integrity with a 22.5Khz inaudible out of band signal every minute. The robust and industrial design of the system ensures its protection against open, short circuit, load deviation and abnormal loads associated with field loop faults. In the event of such common field loop faults, the Eol 8 rapidly detects, reports and diagnoses the fault, reporting this information back to the amplifier, 2Mx controller, ICCS output and to the Eaton remote Gui. During this, the amplifier intelligently protects the output from permanent damage. Provided with amplifier loop blade terminals to securely and safely isolate the field cables for testing and fault rectification. The Eol 8 ensures that at all times field speakers are driven with audio signals in both directions. This self-healing ring design feature ensures that in the event of an open circuit condition critical communications are not lost. Within the Sonix central cabinet the Eol 8 Tu is connected via rapid fit RJ45 connectors, ensuring a quick and failsafe connection to the amplifier. For additional security, this internal connectivity can also be operated on a self-healing ring architecture. In the event that any internal RJ45 cable are disconnected the faults will be logged on the Soxix system. Each Eol 8 can manage 8 amplifiers or be easily configured to provide 8 common (series) outputs per amplifier to assist with field cable topology and reduce IDF requirements on larger loops.
