Industrial Sound Systems are an Essential Part of Safety Planning

At Torrence Sound we hold a fundamental principle that public address systems should be an essential component of every organizations safety and emergency preparedness plan. Facilities with properly designed and well maintained industrial sound systems, industrial PA systems, and commercial paging systems have a unique asset for delivering clear concise audible instructions to their entire staff, over very large areas, real time. For this reason a Torrence audio system is the perfect solution for delivering facility evacuation or lock down instructions specific to an event, informing staff of weather emergencies and subsequent procedures, calling first responders to an emergency situation, or simply broadcasting scheduled reminders about safety procedures.

At Torrence Sound we combine our knowledge and experience with the high quality products to offer our Commercial and Industrial customers sound and public address systems uniquely fitted to their needs. Torrence offers these following features as part of our public address systems designed for life safety and emergency preparedness.

hed-industComponent Supervision

  • Torrence industrial sound systems can include supervised electronic components and cabling to alert your facility immediately if there’s a problems with the public address system so that critical voice pages or pre-recorded message announcements will not be missed.
  • Failover Security
    Commercial sound systems with automatic failover and redundant component and channel design so your organization can be offered the highest level of certainty that critical voice pages or pre-recorded message announcements will be heard.
  • Pre-recorded Announcements and Tones
    Torrence commercial sound and PA systems can include the ability to store and schedule hundreds of pre-recorded messages and pre-announce tones. The started manually, scheduled by date and time, or built into playlists and or messages can be triggered by automatic capability of storing, monitoring and scheduling.
  • Interface with Fire Systems 
    Torrence offers industrial sound systems with an interfaces to emergency mass notification or fire alarm systems, this allows Torrence commercial PA systems to monitor power, ground faults, system trouble, and alarm status of other life safety and emergency notification systems to coordinate and prioritize announcements and make you system EN 54-16 compliant.
  • Page Delay
    Announcements that are broadcast but can’t be understood are of no use. At Torrence industrial PA systems are frequently designed with intelligent store and forward delay to eliminate feedback when making voice pages in even the noisiest industrial environments.

Commercial Sound System Scalability

When an industrial and commercial audio system is designed and maintained by the audio system experts at Torrence these systems offer the ability to reliably deliver clear concise audible instructions to your entire staff simultaneously and in real time. Easily scalable Torrence commercial PA and industrial sound systems can serve small areas and only a few people or millions of square feet and hundreds of thousands of people. The scalability of these systems is provided by constant voltage, distributed architecture.

Commercial and industrial sound systems use an electrical configuration for distributing audio similar to the configuration used to distribute municipal electrical power over large distances. Audio voltage amplitude is stepped up to nominal values of 25V, 70V, 100V. Because some power is lost in voltage over long lengths of copper wire the step up to 25V, 70V, 100V provides a means by which loudspeaker circuits can span miles and loss of signal is then simply compensated for by a change in impedance at the next series of loudspeakers. Large areas or zones of distributed loudspeakers connect to constant voltage amplifiers and the amplifiers have traditionally been interconnected for the purpose of delivering all area (all call) program source or announcements by line level audio or public switched telephone network (PSTN), more recently large zoned commercial and industrial sound system amplifiers are interconnected by ethernet networks with the capability of transporting audio, Voice over Internet Protocol or (VoIP). There are also a number of very low latency protocols for transporting audio over Ethernet such as ANET, AES50, CobraNet, REAC, Dante, and Q-Net.

Using your sound system for increasing Productivity

Industrial sound systems should be a significant component of any plan to improve or control quality and productivity. The unique capability of a properly designed and implemented Industrial sound system to deliver clear concise audible instructions to small areas and only a few people or millions of square feet and your entire staff simultaneously and in real time should makes it an irreplaceable component of your quality control and production process.

Torrence can integrate industrial PA systems to your process machinery so pre-recorded announcements or signal tones can be can be triggered automatically to communicate:

  • Production slowing or stops
  • Resources need to be replenished
  • Output product need to be
  • Quality process reminders

or any other critical production tasks that can be actuated by machinery or software with predetermined actions that need to be communicated immediately to keep production at optimum.

Industrial sound systems integrated to production machinery can communicate future state processes to ensure that any deviations from production targets are communicated to your staff in clear and audible instructions so corrections can be made before they result in defects. Torrence Industrial sound and paging systems can also be integrated into control systems such as statistical process control, production boards, visual workplaces, that automatically trigger pre-recorded messages or signal tones.
