Silent Knight by Honeywell announces a new 125-watt amplifier, designed to economically simplify fire alarm voice evacuation system design.

The VIP-125 amplifier can be mounted up to 6,000 feet away from any
compatible Silent Knight VIP Series of fire alarm control panels for
convenient installation and reduced speaker circuit wire runs.

Utilized to push audio communications to speakers throughout mid-
to large-scale fire alarm voice evacuation systems, the VIP-125 is
ideal for campuses, expansive buildings and high-rise applications.

This self-contained amplifier comes equipped with a built-in power
supply, battery-backup connection and four speaker circuits. An
optional circuit splitter card is available to easily double each
unit’s speaker circuits to eight. Moreover, as many as eight VIP-125s
can be distributed in convenient locations across extensive
installations to provide up to 1,000 watts of amplification power.

Unlike many current-day fire alarm systems, all Silent Knight VIP
Series products run on minimal quantities of wire. This unique wiring
innovation serves to reduce installation time and material costs in new
construction projects while facilitating the use of existing wire in
retrofit applications. The VIP-125 is fully supervised by the fire
alarm control panel and requires only six wires for complete
integration: two for voice data communications and four to provide
serial communication from the fire alarm control panel and amplifier.


All VIP Series fire protection products are available through
Silent Knight’s Farenhyt Engineered Systems Distributors. Farenhyt
Distributors are qualified and knowledgeable fire alarm system
professionals who have been factory trained on Silent Knight products.
