CAV-VBM
The Advanced CAV-VBM, Audio Panel, is designed to be
used in conjunction with any Advanced AxisAX Series or
ULC Listed fire alarm control panel to provide automatic
(and manual) fire alarm audio signaling and live voice
paging during an emergency situation. The CAV-VBM is
fully compatible with the Advanced CAV-VB distributed
audio booster. The combination of the CAV-VBM and
CAV-VB provides the means to meet the total system
wattage requirements of virtually any application due to
superior true distributed audio technology.
The CAV-VBM, Audio Panel, consists of two (2) 40 Watt
amplifiers that may be configured Class A or B, a dual
digital (programmable) message/tone generator, a power
supply/charger (CAX-PSU-6) and an integral microphone
inside a compact, lockable enclosure.
Key status indicators viewable on the front panel display
include a green AC power on LED, a yellow amplifier
trouble LED and a yellow power supply trouble LED.
Additional diagnostic LEDs that are mounted on the
amplifier PCB include: amplifier 1 trouble (open or short),
amplifier 1 failure, amplifier 2 trouble (open or short) and
amplifier 2 failure, and heartbeat. On the CAX-PSU-6;
LEDs include battery trouble, PSU trouble, AC on LED and
heartbeat.
There are 3 toggle switches that provide for manual
activation of either Message 1, Message 2 or to initiate an
All Call system wide page from the CAV-VBM throughout
all distributed CAV-VB audio boosters.
The built-in dual programmable, flash based, digital
message/tone generator of the CAV-VBM, Audio
Panel, comes standard with Message 1 programmed
for Evacuation and Message 2 programmed for
Alert message. Both messages are completely field
programmable for tailoring to meet specific installation
requirements. Digital messages/tones can be programmed
with the Advanced simple, user-friendly Windows® based
tool. The Windows® based programming tool allows users
to select from a library of industry recognized messages/
tones. Selection options include: leading and trailing tones
and male or female voice messages. In addition, wave
files may be downloaded and added to the library to allow
complete customization of messages/tones (see figure 1).
In support of some local requirements, the CAV-VBM
may be set to a “backup mode” whereby as a precaution,
should the primary amplifier fail, the secondary amplifier
automatically will engage and override the primary
amplifier, provided there are no short circuits in the field
speaker circuit wiring. Specifically designed for project

flexibility, each CAV-VBM and CAV-VB can be setup to
produce their own messages. This makes setting up a dual
channel, three channel or floor above/floor below application
simplistic.
A unique feature of the CAV-VB Distributed Audio Booster
effectively allows the amplifier to simply re-amplify a signal
generated from another amplifier/audio signal source.
This allows reduced system wiring, wiring to any listed
audio panel/amplifier rated at 25 Vrms, and complete
synchronization.
CAV-VBM, Audio Panel, message/tone generation is
controlled via 3 N.O. relay contacts from the host fire alarm
control panel, wired to the three prioritized trigger inputs.
When activated, Trigger One will cause both amplifiers to
play message 1 (factory programmed as Evacuation). When
activated by Trigger Two, both amplifiers will play message 2
(factory programmed as Alert). When Trigger 3 is activated
due to an All Call function, amplifiers will output the live audio

from the microphone, overriding either message 1 or 2 (see
figure 2).
All distributed amplifiers CAV-VB units, can be configured
to either output the actual audio signals from the CAV-VBM
in real time, synchronized (as is typical in a standard dual
or three channel application) or may each be programmed
differently in a multi-channel application (see figures 3 and 4).

1. The host FACP activates the CAV-VBM via trigger input #1 or #2 (trigger
#1 message/tone one, trigger #2 message/tone two).
2. The Audio/Microphone Riser connects the audio output of the CAV-VBM
to the audio inputs of each CAV-VB.
3. The host FACP activates the CAV-VBs via trigger input #3 which
rebroadcasts the CAV-VBM Audio/Microphone Riser audio/live voice
