Volume Controller / Patch Panel

When there is a need to control the volume of speakers, a volume controller shall be required, either at localized area or from the rack. Often a group of speakers at a localized area such as meeting room or function room shall need volume controller and also local music source, independently from the main feed, but would require a bypass in case of emergency broadcast. Amperes has all the parts to achieve this .. 

Various ratings of speaker volume controllers are available to choose from and speaker patch is available for patching local source to a localised speakers while allowing central paging overriding signal. They had been serving well for the past decade.

PR7400 allows central paging to override a local source, without the availability of 24V DC overriding signal. Please click to read further of what it can offer.

Amperes Rack Mount Zone Volume Controllers- VR7600 Series


VR7600 Series

Rack Mount Zone Volume Controllers

The rack mounted versions are meant for installation at central rack. allowing zone by zone volume attenuation.

Standard versions are 6 x 50, 6 x 100 and 6 z 150W per channel. If combinations of wattage is required, it can be customised upon ordering.

Amperes Auto Volume Controller- AV7200


Auto Volume Controllers

AV7200 is auto volume controller for localised areas. It varies the speaker volume at 100V line level instead of sending back control data to rack for volume adjustment. As such, it can be applied to existing installations, controlling speaker load of up to 100W.

Among suitable installation areas are shopping malls, transportation stations, public building lobbies, etc.

Speaker Patch Panel

Speaker Patch Panel
Amperes Local Speaker Patch Panel- VP7501


Local Speaker Patch Panel

To utilise the speakers in a localised area such as meeting room, retail unit or restaurants, a patch panel shall be required to allow local amplifier to power up the speakers.

This however would still allow emergency broadcast to override the local music / paging source when required.

VP7501 is 50W in rating comes with standard 86 x 86 mm face plate. American version of 70 x 120 mm is available upon request.

Amperes Speaker Overriding Unit- VP7810


Speaker Overriding Unit

It is normally used in hotel rooms, which allows central paging 100V line audio to override music from TV to a 8 Ohm speaker in bathroom or foyer. In another word, it converts 100V audio line downwards to drive 8 Ohm speaker.

It comes with overriding relay and LED indicator to show the presence of 24V DC overriding voltage.

Remote Paging Override Module

Paging Relay Module
Amperes Remote Paging Override Module- PR7400


Remote Paging Override Module

PR7400 is a new addition to VC / VP category, which is a module for providing a relay contact whenever a paging is in progress, as well as converting the 100V line paging audio to line level, all in a box.

The available functions of the unit shall be :

Relay :

NO and NC relay of 1A contact allows local BGM source overriding, bypass local volume controller to allow central paging to pass through. This is useful during essential paging and whenever 24V DC overriding signal is not available in the cabling works.

100V - Line audio converter

When it is required that the central paging to be broadcasted to local speakers utilising the local amplifier / system, it provides an audio conversion with balanced line audio.
