EMV-2218 is a digital message announcer designed
specifically for elevator applications. Announcements such as floor numbers, going directions and emergency messages can be played at the precise moment dictated by the elevatorís control system. With a fully programmable
interface, EMV-2218 is suitable for both building into brand new elevators and retrofiting old elevators.
In order to accommodate a variety of elevators of different brands, EMV-2218 incorporates a flexible interface
that can be easily configured with a simple text file. Such configuration mainly involves the decoding of elevator control signals, and EMV-2218 can be ordered with pre-configured binary code, Gray code or single point trigger
interface. For other coding schemes, special configuration file can be created at the factory, or by the user with a simple text editor such as Windows Wordpad.
Thanks to the direct support of Windows WAV format,
EMV-2218 is able to offer the best sound quality because no file conversion and/or compression are made. More important is the fact that WAV is a standard, non-proprietary audio format, allowing the user to make his/her own
recordings with standard tools. A highly efficient power amplifier inside the unit provides enough output to drive a speaker directly, eliminating the need for external amplification in most cases.
A unique feature that
EMV-2218 offers is the capability of generating background music internally, eliminating the need for any external music source. If a pre-recorded music file is present in the system, it will be played whenever no message is
Housed in a rugged enclosure, EMV-2218 is a self-contained unit requiring only a single voltage to operate. Built with industrial strength components, EMV-2218 is sure to provide years of reliable,
maintenance free operation.
For most elevators with single point interface. Up to 20 floors.
For most brands of elevators with encoded interface. Up to 63 floors.
For certain Hitachi brand elevators with encoded interface. Up to 63 floors.
