8x8 Audio Matrix and Paging Controller

The T-8000 offers the option to combine several sources and announcements into 8 zones (may be expanded up to 32 zones). It represents a complete solution for multi-zone projects and multi-functional installations. Typical applications are hotels, sport venues or shopping malls.

  • The T-8000 combines up to eight music sources, eight remote controls, two paging microphones, and a microphone input
  • All inputs may be simultaneously assigned to any of the zone outputs
  • A remote paging microphone and three different remote control devices further extend the flexibility of the system
  • The T-8000 may be expanded up to 32 zones. The connection of four T-8000 units will form a 8×32 matrix
  • Nine LC displays (program, local input/monitor and input selection), LEDs (level meter of the monitor output, microphone priority and channel busy)
  • Individual tone (bass, treble) and volume control per channel. Remote volume control available
  • Three different chimes for alarm and evacuation
  • Connection between the different units via CAT-5 cable
  • Four keys for direct BGM and paging access
  • 110 or 240 V AC and 24 V DC operation selectable
  • Five levels of priority (Microphone 1, Fire Alarm, Paging Mic, Remote Control and BGM)
