Bosch has recently extended its Plena public address and voice alarm system with its new Plena Easy Line range. The new range, specifically for public address and background music applications, includes two- and one-zone mixer amplifiers, a mixer unit, new power amplifiers, an 'all-call' call station, a two-zone call station and a wall panel.
The two-zone mixer amplifier is available in 120 W and 240 W versions. The unit features ten inputs to provide a variety of solutions for broadcasting announcements and music to listeners. Designed for straight-out-of-the-box use, it also features a new highly user-friendly user interface. Moreover, a variety of back panel connection points allow for true system integration and application flexibility. The mixer section has separate internal equalizers for music inputs and mic/line inputs that are easily adjusted with a simple turn of a dial.
The one-zone mixer amplifier features four mic/line inputs, three music inputs and a selectable line output for master or music only. Ideal for the general user, it is easy to use thanks to its straightforward interface, which includes 'recommended' setting indicators.
Combined with one or more Plena amplifiers, this mixer unit gives users total freedom to create zones with high power needs and install additional amplifiers outside the control location.
Available in 120 and 240 W versions, the new power amplifiers provide extra power for any Plena system application. Both units feature sturdy compact housings and temperature-controlled forced front-to-back ventilation for stackable installation.
The 'all-call' call station is a practical, user-friendly call station for all zones as well as two-zone announcements. It is provided with toggle key selection and a press-to-talk feature. The two-zone call station is a more advanced unit with two zones and seven built-in chimes. Up to six call stations can be daisy-chained into the system.
Finally, offering a practical and stylish solution for remote control, the new wall panel features two zone selections and one input selection. The panel allows users to select the source and control two zones.
With these new extensions to the Plena Public Address System, Bosch is able to offer full-featured public address and voice alarm solutions for cost-sensitive markets such as retail shops, restaurants, office buildings, small businesses (such as warehouses/light industry) and schools.
