PAGE PARTY SYSTEM is a paging system with talk back facility and is mainly used in industrial plants for the following communication functions.
|•||For communication between central control room and field personnel (control room to field communication)|
|•||For communication of field personnel with central control room (field to control room communication)|
|•||For communication between different field persons / operators (Field to Field communication)|
The system architecture comprises of FIELD HANDSET STATIONS / talk back stations (installed at various locations in the plant), PAGING LOUDSPEAKERS (installed at various locations inside the plant) and the CENTRAL PAGING CONTROLLER.
The Field Handset Stations and Field Loudspeakers are: Indoor desk mountable type (for use in indoor areas), Weatherproof IP66 Type (for use in outdoor safe & non-hazardous areas) and Explosion Proof – Flameproof type (for use in outdoor hazardous areas). The user can select the suitable model depending on the plant areas where they are to be deployed.
The use of Control Room Master Control Station (MCS) is purely OPTIONAL. The users can have Page-Party system with or without MCS.
The system provides Multiple PAGE CHANNELS and Multiple PARTY CHANNELS and these channels are used by the users for two-way communication.
Page Channel is used for announcement purpose and to locate the individuals working in different areas in the plant. The loudspeakers of the system are connected onto the page channel. Thus through the use of Page Function – with proper arrangement of loudspeakers – individuals are contacted anywhere within the plant.
Party Channel is used for carrying prolonged conversation in private mode. The field call stations of the system are connected onto party channels. The Party Line function facilitates two or more individuals to converse without getting heard over the loudspeakers.
The system can provide either Single PAGE CHANNEL or Multiple PAGE CHANNELS and Multiple PARTY CHANNELS.
It can offer up to 8 Nos. of Page Channels (i.e. up to 08 paging groups can be formed). The Number of PARTY CHANNELS is unlimited & is equal to number of Field Stations deployed in the system. Due to availability of Multiple Page & Party channels, multiple field operators can carry their independent & simultaneous communication.
Operation of the system is very simple and the connectivity between the users is immediate:
The Calling individual goes to any of his nearest field station, lifts the handset off the station, selects the desired page channel (simply by dialing the access code) and speaks into the handset to broadcast his message. This message (announcement) gets heard over all the loudspeakers of the selected page channel.
On hearing the message (announcement), the called individual goes to any of his nearest field station, lifts the handset and answers the page call (simply by dialing the answer code). On doing so, the two individuals immediately get connected to each other over their respective party lines. The page channel automatically becomes free. This conversation between the two individual (on their party channel) is not heard by any other users or not heard over the system loudspeakers and they both can talk as long as desired. As the Page Channel is free (idle), any other individual can access it to get connected to another individual…and so on.
