A Product sheet is available for this item.

ZoneC is typically used in locations where
there are no IP networks available.

The Zone controller is a flexible switch box controlled from a computer, that can be used to switch one to many or many to one communication channels.
Switching is controlled via a parallel cable connected a computer parallel port.

Then ZoneC controller can be used for:

  • Switch audio output to amplifiers.
  • Switch amplifier zones.
  • Switch between multiple devices for fault monitoring and status monitoring via a computer comm port.
  • Minotoring input signals / devices.
O/SNone required
System RequirementsRequires parellel port for switch control.
ConfigurationsVarious as defined above.
User ConfigurableUsers can add or remove connections when needed.
RequirmentsThis device needs driver software.

Size190mm x 190mm x 95mm
ColourGrey / Beige
Features 1V Peak to Peak audio, balanced at 600 ohms.

Output control switching and Audio output by block screw terminal.

Outputs dry switched for 24V DC or AC at max current of 50mA.

Switched outputs include 1 output per zone and 1 overall relay (SPDT reed relay) for amplifier selection. The latter relay always operates during DRA announcement regardless of zone selection and is intended for amplifier picking where necessary.

Mic input switching (for system detection of local user contention) - dry switch contact capable of switching 5V to 10V at 100mA with line and contact impedance not to exceed 20 ohms. (Operates a relay coil with back EMF dissipation fitted).

Heat dissipation negligible.

Powered by an external 6v DC power supply.
