In its most basic format, you simply connect the Zoner 16 to a single power amplifier and you can page into any combination of 16 zones. The output of the Zoner 16 connects to the power amplifier, the 100v line output of the amplifier then connects back to the Zoner 16 and you then attach up to 16 zones of 100v line speakers to the rear of the Zoner 16.
When a zone is paged from the remote paging mic, that output zone (speaker load) is simply connected to the amplifier so that it receives signal. Any combination of zones (including All Call) can be paged via the remote mic (which connects to the Zoner 16 via CAT 5).
The Zoner 16 also features an Emergency Mic Input so that a security mic like the new AM DFM Fist Mic (or an emergency signal) can run through the Zoner 16 and (via a contact closure) is automatically routed to all zones.
The standard mic for the system however is the Zoner 16M Paging Mic which enables the user to page individual zones, combinations of zones or All Call. The mic connects to the Zoner 16 via CAT5 cable with a maximum cable run of 50 meters. The Zoner 16 supports one remote paging mic.
The front panel of the Zoner 16 offers separate Paging and BGM level controls plus 16 BGM enable switches with LED status.
