Safety Alert Systems 

Lockdown, Evacuation, Duress & First Aid Systems for Schools & Work Places   

AARC-EVAC Controllers


The AARC-EVAC Controllers broadcast emergency alert messages that have been triggered by AARC-EVAC remotes. AARC Systems can build you a tailored emergency alert solution using one or many indoor and outdoor controllers, with multiple horn or box speakers as required, visual alert beacons and repeaters.

The units are designed to operate as a single unit or as part of a network of self-contained AARC-EVAC™ Wireless Linked Controllers. They incorporate an in-built UPS and are fully self-contained.

When operating the controllers as part of a network, different evacuation instructions can be broadcast in different locations. All instructional voice messages can be multi-lingual, if required.



Indoor Units


AARC-EVAC Indoor Controller units are housed in an enclosure designed to be wall mounted.

2-4 horn or box speakers are supplied with these units. Even though the Indoor Controller is mounted indoors it can drive outdoor mounted horn speakers mixed with horn or box speakers mounted indoors.

Indoor Controllers are powered by a 240VAC to 15VDC plug pack power supply, this is designed to keep the in-built UPS battery charged. Indoor controllers can also be supplied with visual alert beacons and set up as wireless repeaters

Visual Alert Beacons 

Visual Alert Beacons provide a visual representation of the message the controller has received, to convey the alert to hearing impaired persons or in areas where noise pollution may prevent audio notification. Emergency Alert Beacons consist  of four vertical beacons ( Red, Amber, Green, and Blue ) attached to the front of the repeater Unit. When a message is triggered one of the following beacons will flash: red for “Evacuation”, amber  for “Duress” or “Alert”, green for “First Aid:, and blue for “Lockdown”.  When there are no active alerts the beacons are clear.

Outdoor Units

AARC Systems range of outdoor AARC EVAC Controller units are housed in a IP66 rated Polyester/Fiberglass enclosure. These sturdy units come in wall mount or pole mount versions. 2-4 horn speakers are supplied with outdoor units.

Outdoor Controllers are available in a solar powered version where power to keep the in-built UPS battery charged is supplied by a 20W solar panel. In all other outdoor units, power to keep the UPS battery charged is supplied by 110-240VAC mains supply hardwired into the unit.

Outdoor units with visual alert beacons use high intensity LED’s to ensure the beacons are suitable for use outdoors even in bright sunlight.

 
Repeaters 

Repeaters are used to re-transmit the message to any Controller outside of the range of the remote which originally triggered the message.

External Horn and Box Speakers 


AARC-EVAC™ Controllers can be supplied with between two, three or four external horn and/or box speakers. These speakers are wired to the Evac Controller. When triggered the controller’s Wireless Receiver activates standard emergency alert sirens and customisable audio messages. Speakers can be used in conjunction with Visual Alert Beacons.
