Algo 8196 SIP PoE+ Horn Speaker
The 8196 IP PoE+ Horn Speaker is a SIP compliant and multicast-capable PoE+ network audio device for public address and notification. For expanded coverage, up to three satellite speakers may be connected to the 8196 speaker sharing the 16W of available audio power. The 8196 IP PoE+ Horn Speaker is compatible with most hosted / cloud and premise-based VoIP telephone systems.
For large deployment of IP horn speakers in applications such as warehouses, factories, or large industrial sites, the 8196 can provide significant savings when combined with 1196 satellite speakers. For applications with high ambient noise, heavy machinery, or where ear protection is commonly worn the 16W of audio power provided by the 8196 alone when PoE+ powered provides ample sound levels to maintain high intelligibility.
Satellite speakers are connected to the 8196 in a daisy chain fashion using CAT5/CAT6 standard patch cables. Each 1196 Satellite Speaker attached is detected by the 8196 IP Speaker automatically and can be monitored for connectivity. The number of attached satellite speakers is displayed in the 8196 web GUI and also visible in the 8300 Supervision Controller, if deployed.
Power is automatically shared equally between the 8196 IP PoE+ Horn Speaker and 1196 satellite Speakers. If 16W of audio power is available then with one satellite speaker 8W is available to each speaker. If three satellite speakers are attached then 4W are available to each speaker. As satellite speakers are attached the maximum available power level from each speaker in the 8196/1196 cluster is reduced but the operating power level is determined by configuration of the 8196 IP Speaker.
For maximum audio output and flexibility of zoning, 8196 speakers can be deployed as pure homerun IP speakers. This is commonly applied in very loud facilities where ambient noise levels require maximum audio output.
The most common application is deploying back-to-back horn speakers, either pole or wall-mounted. The 8196/1196 are ideally suited for this environment where two speakers, each generating 8W of audio output can be deployed on a single network drop.
For expanded coverage and maximum cost savings, up to three satellite speakers may be connected to the 8196 speaker sharing the 16W of available audio power for 4W/speaker.
When deploying satellite speakers, it is important to consider your application and maximum audio output requirements before choosing a configuration. For maximum audio output and flexibility select all homerun IP speakers, for maximum cost savings deploy three satellite speakers per IP speaker.
