Biamp gets EN 54-16 certification for small amps

Biamp Systems has announced EN 54-16 certification for four new small amplifiers in its Vocia networked public address and voice evacuation system product family.

Vocia small amplifiers now meet relevant government specifications for life safety paging and voice evacuation systems throughout the European Union.

EN 54-16 is issued for individual components within an emergency system. Vocia originally received EN 54-16 certification shortly after being introduced in 2010. Each new subsequent Vocia product has also earned EN 54-16 voice evacuation safety standard approval.

"The Vocia small amplifiers are vital to distributors and consultants who require a truly decentralised, networked paging system that works within spaces of all sizes," said Graeme Harrison, vice president of International Sales, Biamp Systems. "With this new certification, our partners can install a Vocia system of any size with the full confidence knowing that the system will meet EN 54-16 standards. This certification underscores our commitment to innovation and high-quality manufacturing, and providing our customers with products that meet the most current safety standards."
