In addition to the Spectra i.Net System’s capabilities for paging which includes all call page and 99 programmable zones, Point Z technology allows each of the four channels on the system’s sound source to be assigned and included in up to eleven separate paging zones – all call plus 10 client determined and programmed zones. Each plenum OP creates four separate channels (A, B, C & D) that produce four independent noise sources for masking, paging and music. Each channel then supports 1-8 speakers. This amazing upgrade enables each OP to provide a total of 44 overlapping zones and insures that a quality, clear page can be customized and delivered to the client’s specific requirements. All existing Spectra i.Net Systems can be upgraded to have this feature.
Previous systems could provide two overlaps (all call and one programmable zone) per channel for paging. With the addition of Point Z technology, there are endless zoning permutations that can be programmed for paging, music, and masking. For example: clients can now program and set the system to have a paging zone for all open office areas throughout the entire building, plus further drill down and create a zone for all open office areas on only the odd floors, all open areas on only the even floors, and all open areas on odd and even floors on only the north side of the facility.
