Federal Signal's Marine Public Address System (M-PAS) meets the stringent requirements of the marine market, specifically ships, and mobile and fixed offshore units. This system conforms to worldwide regulations to provide a Public Address and General Alarm system that fully operates in marine rated environments.

The M-PAS can be integrated across a multitude of platforms and networks, making it an ideal solution for small and large systems. Its flexibility ranges from being wired for a small single loop configuration to a large redundant duplicated system.

On-board digital signal processors (DSP) provide tone generation and pre-recorded voice messages. Analog audio inputs permit seamless integration of external tone generators and intercom systems. Scalable I/O allows you to integrate third party alarm systems and auxiliary signals, such as fire and gas detection controls and beacons, for a completely integrated emergency notification system.

A programmable control multiplexer allows for up to eight redundant field access panels per PCM-8. Touchscreen access panels with custom graphical user interface (GUIs) are a common option. Options such as the PBX Interface and Feedback Eliminator offer unsurpassed audio quality. Multiple zones with different audio programs or signals are standard.

User controls and fault reporting are easily accessed on the optional touchscreen PC or remotely via a laptop computer or Windows™ - based user interface.
