Area of Rescue or Area of Refuge – AOR by Vingtor Stentofon

For years, Zenitel’s Vingtor-Stentofon has provided area of rescue/area of refuge systems for large high rise buildings and parking garages. Yet sometimes we may not be the first system that engineers think of for small AOR systems.

Stentofon’s AlphaCom configured for AOR is modular; scales to cover very large facilities; and is geared to integrate with other systems (access control, building automation, or video). AlphaCom provides HD audio with active noise cancellation; echo cancellation; and automatic volume control, so is ideal for for noisy parking garages and stairwells with concrete walls. When used with robust IP66 and IK-10 rated Turbine stations that operate in temperature extremes, an AlphaCom will provide decades of outstanding audio performance. While AlphaCom may seem expensive when compared to small stand alone single purpose systems, the cost of ownership over decades of use makes it an exceptional value.

Stentofon’s new PULSE IP addresses mid-sized AOR (64 or fewer stations) applications. This all IP solution also provides HD audio with active noise cancellation; echo cancellation; and automatic volume control, and uses the same robust IP66 and IK-10 rated Turbine IP stations as AlphaCom. Each station now may store custom messages that can be activated via scripting, thus meeting local building code messaging requirements. There is no dedicated server, and the first 16 PULSE licenses are included. The cost for a small system is less than for AlphaCom, so is competitive when compared to competitors’ low performance AOR systems.

If your building needs a long lasting AOR system, please consider Vingtor Stentofon’s PULSE.
