4.e Generic messages activation contacts
The system has 8 unsupervised inputs for activating the generic and service messages recorded on uSD memory card. Each message is activated
by closing its ground input, as shown in the figure below.
The playback of the message is activated by a pulse. Releasing the contact after shorting it to ground has no effect, but the message will be
played till its end. When a message is being played, a second pulse will stop the player.
Generic messages have predefined priorities: message n has a priority over message n+1.
Example:
• When message 2 is played, the closing of contact 1 will stop message 2 and start message 1
• When message 2 is played, the closing of contact 2 will stop message 2
• When message 2 is played, the closing of contact 3 is ignored.
This said, message 8 will has the lowest priority, but message 1 has the highest.
Each contact is active only if an associated audio file is stored in the uSD card.

4.f Alarm messages activation monitored contacts
The system has two monitored dry contact inputs to trigger the EVACUATE and ALARM (alert) messages that are stored in the uSD
card. The connection foresees two resistors as described in the figure below. configuration of these inputs is described in the
dedicated menu. As a factory default, both inputs will trigger their respective message at the opening of the contact and the
playback will continue cyclically as long as the input is open. Playback will stop at the closing of the contact.
These inputs, that are typically activated by the fire alarm control panel are monitored against short circuit and cable cut: in this
case, the system will trigger a fault warning.

5. MENU DESCRIPTION
6.1 Status Description
The system is designed to manage different operating conditions which, according to Standard EN54, are identified in four statuses. The system
status is displayed by the LEDs on the front panel of the system and of the remote emergency microphone workstations.
QUIET Status:
Operating condition “at rest”, without faults, no playback of voice alarms and no active “disablements.” Only the
diffusion of background music or generic messages (not alarm ones) is allowed. When the system is in the quiet
status only the green LED is lit on the front panel of the unit, to indicate that the system is powered.
ALARM Status (VOICE ALARM):
Operating condition where a pre-recorded or speakerphone voice alarm is being issued from the emergency
microphone workstation. It can be activated via an external device connected to one of the supervised contacts, or
from an emergency microphone workstation. While a voice alarm is issued, the system turns on the red LED to
indicate the voice alarm status. The green LED remains on to indicate that the system is powered.
The display will show a POP-UP window indicating the source of the voice alarm in progress.
FAULT Status (FAULT WARNING):
Operating condition indicating the presence of at least one fault detected by the internal diagnostic system. The
status indication is accompanied by a fault intermittent acoustic signal (buzzer) and the yellow LED lighting up on
the unit panel. The green LED remains on to indicate that the system is powered.
The display will show a POP-UP window indicating the number of detected faults and a brief description.
DISABLEMENTS Status:
Operating condition in which the functions of one or more system sections are disabled.
Even the faults related to the disabled section are suspended since safety functions are deactivated. This condition
allows operating on the system without turning it off and without the fault condition (FAULT WARNIGS) being
activated.
The display will show a POP-UP window indicating the number of active “disablements” and a brief description of
the section(s).
NOTE: Operating conditions may also occur simultaneously. The LEDs corresponding to the active conditions will light up on the front panel and
the display will show a POP-UP window indicating which and how many events are active. If the number of events exceeds the number of rows
of the POP-UP window, indications will cyclically scroll on the display. In this case you can view entries using the UP and DOWN arrows.
17
6.2 Main Screen
In the absence of warnings, the main screen shows the following information:
• System time: shows the current system time; for the system events to be properly recorded, this should
be always updated. It is also important to verify that seconds are regularly counted, otherwise the system
CPU may be locked.
• Current access level: A key indicates the current access level 1, 2 or 3.
• System status: The “System OK” text indicates that the system is operating.
In case of a fault, a POP-UP window will appear indicating the number of active faults, the presence and
number of “disablements” and if an alarm message is in progress.
Icons
Current access level: a key positioned bottom-left of the display indicates the current access level: 1, 2 or 3.
Message playback with active repeat rules. In case alarm or evacuation messages are played back, an icon with
two alternate arrows may appear to indicate the presence of rules in the number of repetitions of the current
message. The rules impose a minimum number of reproductions and/or a maximum number of reproduction
cycles.
Fault of one of the two lines A or B with volume increase. In case of line fault with redundant A&B line, an icon
will appear to indicate that the “non-faulty” line is working with an indicated volume increase.
Mute on. With mute on, an icon with the loudspeaker crossed is displayed to indicate that the mute is active.
During the playback of a pre-recorded or voice message you can activate the “MUTE” function by pressing the
appropriate button on the front panel; when on, an icon with a crossed loudspeaker appears on the display.
To deactivate, simply press the appropriate button again and mute will be removed.
NOTE: as per EN54-16, when “Mute” is activated during the playback of a pre-recorded message, the output is
muted only at the end of the message itself to avoid compromising its intelligibility. Likewise, when mute is
removed, the message will be played back at the end of the reproduction cycle. Mute activation while an
emergency microphone is “speaking” is immediately effective.
Warning on In case of a system event, a flashing triangle appears to attract the user’s attention. The warning is
removed when you access the “System Logs” system event menu, which lists the system events.

The system works with a Main amplifier and a possible Backup amplifier. Both the
main amplifier and the backup amplifier, if installed, are monitored to ensure
effectiveness; in case of a faulty main amplifier, the backup amplifier automatically
takes over, if installed.
For details of the status of the amplifiers you can select from the list and press OK to
access the Main amplifier detail / Backup amplifier detail screen that indicates the
status in detail. In particular, the display shows the type of amplifier selected and its
operating status:
Func:
Connected / Active Connected to the load and active
Connected / Powerdown
Connected to the load and in energy saving
mode
Disconneted / Powerdown Disconnected from the load and in energy
saving mode
The system works with a single line of speakers that can be managed in single or
double mode, also called A&B mode. The content diffused via speakers is unique in
both single-line and double-line mode, A&B line. The difference between the two
modes is the possibility, in A&B mode, to manage a fault on the speaker line and
recover the lost sound pressure by transferring power on the line that is still operating.
In the event of a fault, e.g. short-circuit, of the single-mode speaker line (not A&B), the
system isolates the line to avoid damaging the amplifier, making it impossible to
diffuse any contents. On the contrary, if the line of speakers was wired in double
mode, alternating a line A speaker with a line B speaker and homogeneously
distributing the speakers on the surface to be sonorised; in the event of a fault on one
of the two lines, e.g. short-circuit, the system isolates the faulty line and increase the
volume of the remaining line so as to recover the lost sound pressure.

10. FUNCTIONS ACCORDING TO EN54-4: 2007
The AE300 device is equipped with a power supply unit in accordance with Standard EN54-4: 2007. The following table lists the main features
implemented.
4.2.1, 4.2.2,
The power supply unit accepts two power supply sources: electric network (primary) and battery (secondary)
4.2.3
4.2.6
The primary power supply source (electrical network) is the exclusive source for the system, in addition to the currents
associated with battery monitoring.
4.2.7, 4.2.10
In case of lack of main source, the device automatically switches to the backup source. When the primary source is
restored, the device automatically switches back to it.
Moreover, the power supply unit is built so as to ensure power supply to the system without outages in case of lack of
one of the two power supply sources (network or battery).
4.2.4, 5.3.1
Automatic battery charger able to charge the battery to at least 80% of its rated capacity in 24h and 100% in the
subsequent 48h
4.2.8
The lack of the primary source is indicated by appropriate “fault warning”.
5.4
The device recognises and reports the following faults
42
a)
Loss of primary power supply source
b)
Loss of backup power supply source
c)
Increase of the resistor (+25% compared to the calibrated value) inside the battery and associated circuitry
d)
Battery charger failure
e)
Blown fuses (network and battery)
