Cooper Notification, Booth 20061 —Cooper Notification, a platform of Cooper Industries plc, launched its latest Wide-Area Mass Notification System (MNS) solution at ISC West. The WAVES High Power Speaker Array (HPSA) 7100 Series, which provides highly intelligible voice and tone announcements, can be integrated with an organization’s voice-capable fire alarm control panel as well as Cooper Notification’s SAFEPATH®4 voice evacuation systems and SAFEPATH Mass Notification Systems, providing a simple upgrade path to expand emergency communications coverage to outdoor areas.

Using leading-edge amplification technology, Cooper Notification’s High Power Speaker Arrays were designed for high intelligibility and emergency efficiency, the company said. The HPSA’s vertical line arrays provide a narrow vertical output pattern for focusing sound directly at the audience, which produces better sound pressure and higher intelligibility, according to the manufacturer. By creating a nearly cylindrical sound propagation pattern, the system allows messages to be clearly understood whether a person is 100 ft. or 1,500 ft. away from it.

“Not only does the system allow our customers to expand mass notification to outdoor areas by leveraging their existing infrastructure, but it also enables our partners to easily integrate with a facility’s existing FACP and our SAFEPATH systems,” said Scott Hearn at Cooper Notification.
