Barix, a specialist in IP-based audio transmission, intercom, control and monitoring systems, has introduced the Annuncicom 155 IP intercom and announcement device for use in trains and rail stations.

The device, which will be introduced at the Innotrans rail transportation show in Germany on 21-24 September, enables systems integrators to set up tailored communication systems ranging from simple door intercom, PA and background music systems to complex monitoring functions and emergency announcement systems.

It meets the EN50155 standard requirements for rail vehicle installation (Railways Applications Electronic Equipment Used on Rolling Stock).

The basic principle of an Annuncicom 155 communication system is both elaborate and simple, according to Barix.

At least two devices are connected to a standard TCP/IP LAN network to exchange live announcements as well as priority, monitoring and control information for a standalone system.

Barix SIP firmware can enable integration into conventional SIP-based telephone systems.

Control signals and a serial port allow the connection of a selector switch, buttons or display.

This allows for destination selection and the control and display of connection status.

The Annuncicom 155 system can operate as a standalone system or in conjunction with PCs and central IT management in a standard network, enabling low-cost and quick configuration of the communication system while guaranteeing future expansion.

It is based on standard TCP/IP and works with Audio-over-IP.

This means it can be integrated easily and conveniently into existing networks and allows for wide-ranging networking and deployment, even in multi-cast mode, to simultaneously address any number of subscribers.

‘The Annuncicom 155’s stable design is suitable for harsh everyday operation in trains, buses and ships, as well as deployment in general applications under harsh environments, including transport and industrial,’ said Johannes G Rietschel, chief executive officer and founder of Barix The Annuncicom 155 conforms to the usual transportation standards including EN50121 and EN50155.
