existing fire alarm control panel system for area of assembly
applications and for high‑rise voice evacuation not requiring
firemens' phones. Choose up to 2000 W of audio amplifier
power to meet your speaker power requirements. You can
supervise multiple zones through your choice of zone
splitters.
The EVAX25, EVAX50, and EVAX100 respectively provide
25 W, 50 W, and 100 W of audio amplifier power in a
standard‑size enclosure. The EVAX150 has one 50 W audio
amplifier and one 100 W audio amplifier in a double‑size
enclosure. The EVAX200 has two 100 W amplifiers in a
double‑size enclosure.
System Overview
Customize these systems to satisfy most application
requirements by adding expander panels, expander
modules, or zone splitters. Expanders can be grouped
together in any combination to provide up to 2000 W of
audio power.

Use the EVAX25EM, EVAX50EM, or EVAX100EM expander
panel when a 25 W, 50 W, or 100 W audio expander is
needed with its own enclosure. Use the EVAX150EM and
EVAX200EM for expansion when greater power is required
in the larger enclosure configuration. The EM models have
all the features of the E models except they are without a
paging microphone.
Optional Expander Modules
The expander modules (EVX- models) can increase the
capacity of any Bosch voice evacuation system or expander
panel. They do not have paging microphones and are
intended for installation in UL Listed enclosures (not
supplied). Features of these modules:
•
•
•
Audio amplifier
Power regulator and battery charger
Tone generator
Optional Zone Splitters
The EVX‑4Z and EVX‑2ZA zone splitters allow the supervised
output of any Bosch audio amplifier to supervise multiple
zones. Features of these zone splitters:
•
Manual selection of any or all voice evacuation zones for
emergency paging
• Automatic selection of voice evacuation zones by
connecting normally‑open contacts from the FACP or
other auxiliary control system
• Annunciation of either active or faulted zone status by
individual LEDs
• Compatibility with jumper‑selectable 25 V and 70 V
amplifier outputs
The EVX‑4Z has four Class B zones. The EVX‑2ZA has two
Class A zones.
Functions
Optional primary and secondary messages are available. For
further information, refer to the Bosch Voice Evacuation
System's Optional Messages Technical Service Note (P/
N: F01U500869).
Remote Paging Microphones
Remote paging microphones (up to five per EVX‑SC
supervisory card) are supported through a supervised
circuit. Remote microphones may be mounted up to 5000 ft
(1.5 km) away from the EVAX voice evacuation panel. An
ideal use for a remote microphone is when the FACP and
voice evacuation system panels are in an electrical room
and you need a microphone in the lobby.
System Settings
Control system operation by DIP switch settings:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Configure three DIP switches to determine alert tones
of Temporal Slow Whoop (default), Hi Lo, Horn, Bell, or
1 kHz.
Turn the Diagnostic Mode on or off (default).
Set the AC Power Failure Report for no delay (default)
or for a six‑hour delay.
Indicate if batteries are connected to the system. The
default setting is batteries are connected.
Indicate if a microphone is connected to the system.
The default setting is a microphone is connected.
Set the initial delay before a message starts for no
delay, 4‑second delay, 8‑second delay (default),
12‑second delay, 16‑second delay, 20‑second delay,
24‑second delay, or 28‑second delay. The chosen tone
sounds during the delay.
Set the delay between repeats of the message for a
4‑second delay, 8‑-second delay, 12‑second delay
(default), or 16‑second delay.
Indicate if the message plays or not. Message on is the
default.
Set the number of times the message plays to one play,
two plays, three plays (default), or continuous play.
Digital Message Repeater
Each of the Bosch voice evacuation systems (EVAX25,
EVAX50, EVAX100, EVAX150, and EVAX200) includes a
digital message repeater (DMR). The systems come with the
following standard 15‑second message programmed:
"Attention, please. There has been a report of an
emergency. Proceed calmly to the nearest exit and leave the
building immediately. Do not use the elevators; use
stairwells where necessary. All handicapped occupants
shall use the building evacuation plan."
The voice evacuation message is broadcast until the FACP
resets or until emergency personnel interrupt the broadcast
with a manual page. When the FACP resets, the voice
evacuation system automatically returns to normal
operating condition.
The closure of a contact from either the FACP or from any
normally‑open contact device can cause the broadcast of a
chime tone followed by the message "All clear."

Speaker Placement
Choose speakers that deliver a minimum ambient sound of
15 dB above the normal ambient noise level. In
high‑ambient noise areas, speakers should be tapped at
15 dB to 21 dB above the ambient noise level and placed
closer to one another to ensure that voice messages are
intelligible.
The best way to determine speaker placement needs is to
conduct a site survey with a decibel meter to measure
ambient noise levels; however, some general rules for
speaker placement are:
•
•
•
Locate speakers at all pull stations and in main
corridors similar to the layout of conventional fire
horns.
Ensure that all occupied locations are within 50 ft
(15 m) of a speaker. Place additional speakers in rooms
such as cafeterias and computer rooms. Be sure there
are speakers in isolated areas where service personnel
might be working.
For ceiling‑mount speakers, use 2 W of speaker power
for every 2000 ft2 (186 m2) of area covered in open
areas and 2 W for every 1500 ft2 (139 m2) in divided
areas. For wall‑mount speakers, use 1 W of speaker
power for every 2000 ft2 (186 m2) of area covered in
open areas and 1 W for every 1500 ft2 (139 m2) in
divided areas.
Speaker Power Requirements
System power (total wattage) must be sufficient to supply
the power required by all of the speakers on the system.
Speaker transformers can often be tapped for different
wattages (usually, ¼ W, ½ W, 1 W, etc.). A system rated at
25 W of audio power can power a speaker load of 25 W. This
can be made up of 25 speakers each tapped at 1 W, 50
speakers each tapped at ½ W, or any mathematical
combination that is less than or equal to 25 W.
Speaker Wiring Requirements
The 25 V speaker circuits of most voice evacuation systems
are classified as power‑limited wiring and can be run with
other fire alarm wiring without ill effects. No special cabling
is required. Standard power‑limited fire alarm cable (FPL)
is sufficient for most applications; however, certain
addressable systems can generate extraneous noise from
their addressable loop. Because these addressable systems
cannot use shielded cable, shielding of the evacuation
speaker circuit helps to eliminate noise picked up and heard
in the speakers. When using 70 V circuits, separate them as
described in the National Electrical Code.
Generally, 18 AWG (1.0 mm) wire is adequate for speakers.
Heavier wire is needed if loads are high or the runs are long.
The following table indicates typical wire lengths for
specific wire sizes and speaker loads. It assumes that there
is an even distribution of speaker load and that a 20% drop
at the last device is allowable.
