How it Works
Rapid PA does not need a power supply – it uses the Xorcom FXS feed for its operation. A LED (Light Emitting Diode) indicates “line active” status, simplifying installation and testing. When a call is placed to the FXS port extension to which the Rapid PA is connected, the Rapid PA immediately “answers the call” (i.e., goes to “off hook” position) and the caller can place his/her call through the IP system. The origin of the PA message in not important; it can be an analog phone, an IP phone, a call from an incoming line or even from a soft phone overseas. The PA system is automatically disconnected when the call terminates.
The small size and simple installation of the Rapid PA unit make it easy to install multiple local PA amplifiers in different locations. Even a low cost PX loudspeaker (with built-in amplifier) can be used as a small PA system.
Multiple Rapid PA devices can be connected to multiple FXS ports and loudspeakers to provide multi-zone support.
