1. GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The VM-3000 Series Voice Alarm System is an integrated emergency/general announcement broadcast
system. The Voice Alarm System Amplifier that plays the central role in the system is available in two models:
VM-3240VA (240W) and VM-3360VA (360W). Using these amplifiers in conjunction with the VM-3240E
(240W) and VM-3360E (360W) Extension Amplifiers allows larger systems to be built.
2. FEATURES
• The VM-3240VA and VM-3360VA both have 6 speaker outputs. This can be expanded to up to 60 outputs
by combining the amplifier with its corresponding extension amplifiers, the VM-3240E or VM-3360E,
respectively.
• Set data, log data and other Voice Alarm System Amplifier data can be accessed by way of the Ethernet.
• Up to 4*1 RM-300MF emergency broadcast Fireman’s Microphones and up to 4*1 general broadcast-use
RM-200M Remote Microphones (8*1 units in total) can be connected to the Voice Alarm System Amplifier.
*1 These connection numbers are available only when all the versions of VM-3000VA firmware, RM-300MF
firmware, and VM-3000 Setting Software are 3.00 or later. When the versions are earlier than 3.00, up to
2 RM-300MFs and up to 2 RM-200Ms can be connected, respectively. Besides, only up to a total of 4
RM-300Ms and RM-200Ms can be connected. Also, if the system is required to meet the requirements of
EN54-16, only up to 2 RM-300MFs can be connected.
• The system enables simultaneous 2-channel broadcast of automatic emergency announcement broadcasts
and microphone announcements from the RM-300MF VM Fireman's Microphone. Also, 2-channel
broadcast*2 of automatic emergency announcement broadcasts is possible.
*2 2-channel broadcast of automatic emergency announcement broadcasts can be made by respective units
using the VM-3240VA/3360VA and VM-3240E/3360E.
By connecting an external amplifier to each of the VM-3240VA/3360VA and VM-3240E/3360E, 2-channel
broadcasts of automatic emergency announcement broadcasts can be made to individual units' output
lines.
This function can be used only when all the versions of VM-3000VA firmware, VM-3000E firmware, and
VM-3000 Setting Software are 3.00 or later. This function is compliant with the BS-5839 Part 8.
• Connecting an external standby amplifier (VP-2241 and VP-2421) to both of the Voice Alarm System
Amplifier and its Extension Amplifiers VM-3240E and VM-3360E enables background music (BGM)/paging
broadcasts. The BGM/paging broadcast refers to simultaneous 2-channel broadcasts that allow paging calls
(microphone announcements) to be made over other zones without interrupting current BGM broadcasts.
• For systems employing the VX-2000DS Emergency Power Supply, only emergency broadcasts can be
made while backup power is being supplied by the VX-2000DS, even if the main power supply has been cut
off.
• Easy-to-understand on-screen settings can be performed from a PC screen using the setting software.
• Audio inputs include inputs 1 – 4, a remote microphone input, an emergency remote microphone input, and
BGM inputs 1 & 2 (select either of the two).
• Control inputs and outputs include 6 inputs and 3 status outputs for emergency broadcasts, and 8 inputs and
8 outputs for general broadcasts. By adding extension amplifiers (up to 9 units can be connected), the
number can be increased up to 60 inputs for emergency broadcasts and up to 80 inputs and 80 outputs for
general broadcasts.

• A 1,440 W integrated emergency/general broadcast system with 18 outputs.
• Unlike a 1-channel broadcast system, this system allows paging calls (microphone announcements) to be
made over zones other than those currently being used by the BGM broadcast without interrupting the BGM
broadcast. Example: It is possible to page over Zone 3 while playing BGM in Zones 1 and 2. BGM
broadcasts are made by the VM amplifier and paging calls by the VP amplifier.
• Paging calls can still be initiated even if either the VM amplifier or the VP amplifier should fail.
• Emergency broadcasts can be made even if either the VM amplifier or the VP amplifier should fail.
• Emergency broadcasts can be made even during power failures if the VX-2000DS Emergency Power
Supply is connected. However, general broadcasts are not possible.

8. PRIORITY SETTINGS
8.1. General Broadcast Priorities
In general broadcasts, priorities can be set to each input source of the VM-3240VA's or VM-3360VA's, and the
VM-3240E's or VM-3360E's local input source. Following are such priority-assignable inputs or sound
sources: INPUT 1 – 4 (audio input), BGM 1 & 2 (BGM input), RM 1 & 2 LINK IN (remote microphone input),
internal automatic general announcements 1 – 6, and Local INPUT* (audio input).
Priority levels can be set on the setting software. (Refer to "Priority Settings" in the separate software
instruction manual.)
• The lower the number, the higher the priority. Priorities that can be set differ depending on the connected
terminal.

firmware, VM-3000E
firmware, and VM-3000
Setting Software are 2.00 or
later.
• While a broadcast with Priority 1 – 6 is being made, if another broadcast with higher priority is made, the
lower priority broadcast is interrupted. When multiple broadcasts with the same priority are simultaneously
made, the latest broadcast takes precedence (default: last-in-first-out priority). This priority can be changed
to a first-in-first-out arrangement through software settings. The original broadcast is restored after the
priority broadcast is complete.
• Priority 7 can be assigned only to Inputs 1 – 4 (audio input). Setting these inputs to Priority 7 (MIX) allows
them to be used as BGM source inputs. If two or more of these inputs are set to Priority 7, their sound
source outputs are mixed.
• Priority 8 can be assigned only to BGM 1 & 2 (BGM input). If broadcast with Priority 1 – 7 is started during
BGM (Priority 8) playback, the BGM is temporarily attenuated to allow the broadcast with Priority 1 – 7 to go
through. The original BGM playback is restored when the priority broadcast is complete.
• When multiple input sound sources are simultaneously broadcast, the Output indicator indicates the input
sound source with the highest priority.
• Depending upon priorities set to each input terminal (sound source), operations of the internal attenuator
(speaker output volume control), external attenuator and master volume control differ.

Differences in System Operation Due to "System Type" Settings When Priority
Broadcasts Are Made
[In a 1-channel broadcast system]
When another higher priority broadcast is started during a broadcast, if broadcast areas for the two are different,
the original broadcast is cut off in areas other than those where the higher priority broadcast has been made.
[In a BGM/Paging broadcast system]
Priorities 1 – 6 are assigned to paging calls made by the VP series standby amplifiers, while Priorities 7 (MIX) and
8 (BGM) are for BGM broadcasts made by the VM-3000 series Amplifiers. When another broadcast with priority 1
– 6 is made during a broadcast with priority 7 or 8, if broadcast areas for the two are different, the original
broadcast is maintained in areas other than those where the latest broadcast has been made.

9. CPU OFF FUNCTION
9.1. What Is the CPU OFF Function?
The CPU OFF function bypasses the CPU*, which the VM-3000 system uses in ordinary broadcasts, and
allows all-zone calls to be made from the VM-3360VA or VM-3240VA or RM-300MF. Use this function when
ordinary broadcasts cannot be made due to system failures, etc.
* A signal processing unit installed in the VM-3240VA, VM-3360VA, VM-3240E, or VM-3360E and RM-300MF.

10. SURVEILLANCE
10.1. What Is the Surveillance Function?
The surveillance function continually monitors operating conditions for each piece of equipment in the system,
operations between equipment components, connections and communications between equipment
components, power supply conditions and other important component parts and points extending from input to
output. If malfunctions or cable breakage is detected, details of such irregularities* are displayed on the VM3360VA or VM-3240VA’s LCD. At the same time, the communications failure indicator or failure indicator on
the system equipment flashes to alert the system operator to such irregularities along with a buzzer tone.
The setting software is used to set surveillance time intervals, component parts to be monitored and
subsequent operations when a failure is detected. (Refer to "Surveillance Settings" in the separate software
instruction manual.)
Detected failures are recorded in the VM-3360VA or VM-3240VA’s log, and the recorded log can be confirmed
using the setting software. (Refer to "Log Display" in the separate software instruction manual.)
* For LCD failure display, refer to page 62.
10.2. How to Use the Surveillance Function
Be sure to perform the following settings to enable the surveillance function. If not performed, the surveillance
function cannot be used.
• Initialize surveillance settings using the setting menu displayed on the VM-3360VA or VM-3240VA’s LCD.
(Refer to "Surveillance Settings" on page 86.)
Note
Be sure to perform this initialization after completing the system installation and connections.
• Use the setting software to set the surveillance function. (Refer to "Surveillance Settings" in the separate
software instruction manual.)
10.3. Monitored VM-3000 System Components
Shown below are the monitored component parts and points:
• VM-3360VA or VM-3240VA
• Automatic emergency announcement
• Expansion amplifier (VM-3240E or VM-3360E)
• Emergency remote microphone (RM-300MF)
• Battery
• Speaker (short or open circuit)
• Speaker (ground fault)
• Charging device (VX-2000DS)
• Emergency control terminal
• General-use remote microphone (RM-200M)
• Extension amplifier (VP-2241 or VP-2421)
• Standby amplifier (VP-2241 or VP-2421)
Using the setting software, enable or disable settings individually for each of the above items. (Refer to
"Surveillance Settings" in the separate software instruction manual.)
Tip
Each of the above items can be registered into up to 64 groups only when all the versions of VM-3000VA
firmware, VM-3000E firmware, and VM-3000 Setting Software are 2.00 or later. Each group can be assigned
to the RM-300MF's key, which functions as a failure indicator. (Refer to "RM-300MF settings" in "Event
Settings" in the separate software instruction manual.)

10.4. Equipment Operation upon Failure Detection and Recovery Procedure
If any malfunction is detected within the system, the buzzer sounds, the failure indicator flashes and failure
information* is displayed on the VM-3360VA or VM-3240VA’s LCD screen. The operations of other system
equipment differ when a communications error or other failures occur. The following are rough guidelines on
actions to take after such failures have been detected.
The procedure for recovery from irregularities other than communications failures is:
1. Perform failure acknowledgment.
2. Remedy the cause.
3. Perform failure reset.
Recovering from communications failures:
When a failure is detected in communications between an individual component and the VM-3360VA or VM3240VA, component operation can no longer be performed. First, remedy the cause of the failure.
If communication returns to normal, the original condition will automatically be restored.
* For LCD failure display, refer to page 62.

When batteries are installed in the rack,
place them directly below the VX-2000DS
so that they can perform temperature
compensation for the charging voltage.
In this case, use a perforated panel in front
of the rack to avoid excessive temperature
rise around the batteries.
For installing batteries, refer to the
Instruction Manual attached to the VX2000DS.
CAUTION
Follow the instructions below. Doing otherwise may cause the unit to fall, possibly resulting in personal
injury.
• As the VM amplifiers do not come with rack-mounting screws, prepare locally the screws that are
appropriate for the equipment rack.
• The rack-mounting screws supplied with the units other than the VM amplifiers are dedicated for the
TOA racks. Never use them for any other rack.
Notes
• Because the VM-3240VA/3360VA, VM-3240E/3360E, VP-2241/2421, VX-2000DS, and VX-2000PF are
heavy, use guide rails (separately prepared) in the rack to safely mount and securely support the units.
• The perforated panel is recommended in place of space.

14. CONNECTIONS
14.1. Removable Terminal Plug Connection
Notes
• Do not use a micro screwdriver. Sufficient torque is not given to the screws when tightening them, and
connections may not be secured.
• Avoid soldering stranded or shielded cable, as contact resistance may increase when the cable is tightened
and the solder is crushed, possibly resulting in an excessive rise in joint temperatures.
• When connecting 2 cables or a shielded cable to a single terminal,
use a ferrule terminal with an insulation sleeve to crimp the cables
because such cable conductors could become loose.

Note
Plugging a DC plug into the RM-200M's DC POWER IN terminal automatically switches the RM-200M's DC
power input to this terminal, disconnecting the unit's power supply from the LINK connector.
Be sure to firmly secure the DC plug by fixing the power cable onto the RM-200M's bottom-mounted cable
hook.
If the DC plug is pulled out, the LINK connector takes over the unit's power supply and is connected to the
system power line. This may cause the voltage drop of power supply and increase the current consumption
from the VM-3240VA or VM-3360VA, resulting in the system malfunction.

14.5.3. Connections to detect failures on the emergency control input lines
Two types of control methods are available for the Emergency control input in the VM-3000 system: Contact
control input (Emergency control input terminals 1 – 5) and Voltage control input (Emergency control input
terminal 6).
Failures on each control input line can be detected in the following connections.
The control input terminals to be surveyed should be set by the setting software. (Refer to "Surveillance
Settings" in the separate software manual.)
* For the surveillance function, refer to page 51.
[Contact control input terminals (EMERGENCY CONTROL 1 – 5)]
Receive emergency control output (contact output) from external equipment, then activate an emergency
broadcast.

[Voltage control input terminal (EMERGENCY CONTROL 6)]
24 V DC is kept applied to the COM terminal under normal condition. Reversing this applied voltage polarity
activates an emergency broadcast.
The surveillance function judges the line normal when 24 V DC is detected at the COM terminal under
normal condition and when 24 V DC is detected at the emergency control input terminal 6 under emergency
condition.
It judges the line open if no voltage is detected under any condition.
The figures below show the line surveillance methods under normal and emergency conditions.
