2. EMERGENCY WARNING BROADCAST
You can start an emergency warning broadcast using the remote microphone’s key. The preset audio source
applied to the VX-3000F’s Audio input can be broadcast to the preset zones while the key is held down.
Emergency warning broadcast can be made even during power failure. When attenuators are used in the
broadcast zones, the emergency warning broadcast is made bypassing the attenuators and signal processing.
When the priority set to the emergency warning broadcast is higher than the emergency broadcast, the
emergency warning broadcast will override the emergency broadcast while left in the emergency mode even
during emergency broadcast. During general broadcast, the emergency warning broadcast will override the
general broadcast while left in the general mode.
When the emergency warning broadcast is activated while the higher-priority broadcast is in progress, the
emergency warning broadcast is placed in standby, and will start after the higher-priority broadcast is complete.
[Operation example for the emergency warning broadcast]
The example below shows the operation procedure when the "Emergency warning broadcast" is assigned to
the RM-300X’s covered key.
Step 1. Open the cover, then continue to press the Emergency Warning Broadcast key.

3. EMERGENCY BROADCAST
3.1. Typical System Examples
Here, an example of sequential operation with the VX-3000 system is explained.
[Sequential Operation]
Sequential operation consists of Phase 1 and Phase 2.
Sequence Phase 1 operates upon emergency system activation. When the set time interval elapses, the
broadcast is automatically switched to Phase 2.
[Setting Contents]
Both the broadcast messages and output zones are set for Phase 1 and Phase 2.
Assuming that these phases are set as follows:
Phase 1: The alert message is continuously broadcast for 5 minutes to each floor of each building.
Phase 2: The evacuation message is continuously broadcast to the entire zone.
[Alert and Evacuation Message Examples]
Alert Message:
The fire alarm system has been engaged. We are now checking the cause.
Please wait for further information.
Evacuation Message: There is a fire. Please evacuate immediately.
Step 1. Background music (BGM) is
broadcast to A-GF (Building A
ground floor) and B-GF (Building B
ground floor) when the system is in
general-purpose broadcast mode.

4. MAKING ALL-ZONE EMERGENCY BROADCAST
If normal broadcasts cannot be made due to system failure or some trouble, only an all-call is possible.
This is a broadcast made by bypassing the CPU* that normally operates in the VX-3000 system. (For details,
see the separate Installation Manual, "INSTALLATION AND SETTING PROCEDURES.")
This broadcast is called "All-zone emergency broadcast."
All-zone emergency broadcast can be made by operating the DIP switch of the RM-300X or RM-200SF
independently of settings performed using the VX-3000 Setting Software. (For operations of the RM-300X, see
p. 3-19. For operations of the RM-200SF, see p. 3-20.)
* CPU is a central processing unit, which is built in the VX-3004F, VX-3008F, and VX-3016F.
4.1. Priority Control of the All-Zone Emergency Broadcast
In the All-zone emergency broadcast, how the priority control operates depends on the destination to which the
RM-300X or RM-200SF is connected regardless of the priority setting made on the VX-3000 Setting software.
The relationship between the priority order and the connection destination is described below.
When broadcasts with the same priory overlap, they are mixed and output.
Connection destination with the highest priority: RS LINK A terminal of the VX-3000F set to ID "0"
Connection destination with 2nd highest priority: RS LINK B terminal of the VX-3000F set to ID "0"
Connection destination with 3rd highest priority:‌RS LINK A and B terminals of the VX-3000F set to ID other
than "0"
First priority
RS LINK A
VX-3000F (ID: 0)
RS LINK B
Second priority
RS LINK A
VX-3000F (ID: 1)
RS LINK B
RS LINK A
VX-3000F (ID: 2)
RS LINK B
Third priority
Following are operations when you activate a remote microphone to make broadcast.
• When broadcast from the remote microphone with higher priority is in progress, your broadcast cannot be made.
• When broadcast from the remote microphone with the same priority is in progress, your broadcast is mixed
with the current broadcast in progress.
• When broadcast from the remote microphone with lower priority is in progress, your broadcast overrides
the current broadcast in progress. When the overridden broadcast still continues after your broadcast is
complete, it will resume.
Note
Never make All-zone emergency broadcast simultaneously using 2 or more Remote microphones connected
to the same RS LINK connector.
Doing so may reduce broadcast sound volume and broadcast will not be made normally.
