Praesideo as a fully digital solution
Praesideo fulfils these requirements:
- Addressable EVAC zones according to the fire zones of the ship
- Interface to the fire alarm system
- A redundant A-B system configuration guarantees that emergency messages are not missed, even when parts of the system have malfunctioned
- Thanks to the announcement function for non-emergency situations, there is no need for a costly, separate communication system.
- Flexible volume controls for background music with the relevant interface to the ship's entertainment system
Praesideo is a fully digital solution, which fulfils the requirements on ships in terms of acoustics, voice alarms and background music. The system can be accessed anywhere on the ship due to the flexible daisy-chained network topology. The zones can be freely configured into deck, cabins, engine room and other functional areas.
To ensure security on cruise liners, two complete systems are installed at different locations ("A-B configuration"). Each zone is connected to both systems using two speaker wires. The system comprises application-specific communication stations (custom made in part) for announcements and alarms. The system can also be operated using touchscreen-controlled communication stations with a very simply designed but high-performance graphic user interface. The simplicity of operation is always the focus. Emergency communication stations on the bridge, the ECR (Engine Control Room) or the central offices round off the system, increasing security on-board. Various amplifiers efficiently fulfil the specific performance requirements in the specific zones. Various music sources can be connected to the inlets of the system and routed into the different public areas and function rooms. Audio signals from the entertainment system can be routed via interfaces to Praesideo. Local touchscreens in the ship's areas (e.g. theatre, spar, gym, etc.) are also possible and increase comfort for guests and crew.
The volume control integrated into the Praesideo amplifiers ensures a pleasant acoustic volume irrespective of ambient sounds and guarantees exceptional clarity of announcements and evacuation messages.
