Greater Fredericton Airport, Fredericton, NB

The Greater Fredericton Airport in Fredericton, New Brunswick, operates a Public Address system that relies on TOA's PA Products, including the F Series - Ceiling Speakers. The Airport also relies on TOA's N-8000 - IP Intercom for communication and security throughout the airport.

Bearspaw Water Treatment Plant, Calgary, AB

Located in Northwest Calgary, the Bearspaw Water Treatment Plant required an Intercom communications and paging system that would provide effective communications not only onsite, but with the Glenmore Water Treatment plant located in Southwest Calgary. 

This project was a part of an extensive upgrade that was required for both plants. Not only would the facilities be revamped to increase production capacity, water treatment quality, and elevate the city's environmental stewardship, they would also receive a new communications system. Effective communications was now required around the clock between both facilities.

Both facilities would be able to page onsite and across town through an IP network. Because of high noise levels at the facilities, a Modular Digital Matrix Mixer/Amplifier (A-9240SHM2) including ambient noise modules (AN-001) and sensing microphones (AN-9001) would be incorporated to ensure that all pages and communications, including everyday and emergency communications, would be heard intelligibly. Using a WAN and TOA's IP Intercom Bearspaw and Glenmore Water Treatment Plants were able to establish communications. They chose TOA's Industrial Use Master Station (N-8020MS) which is designed to work in heavy dust or wet environments (IP 54 rated). 

SC Series Paging Horns are strategically located around the plant to provide effective communications to all staff and visitors. These horns are IP 65 certified with weatherproof construction and are ideal for harsh environments such as a water treatment plant.

Commission Scolaire de Montréal, Montréal, QC

Venue: 

Commission Scolaire de Montréal (CSDM) has 191 schools with more than 112,000 students. Among the 191 intuitions are 127 primary, 34 secondary, and 16 institutions that are specifically for students with social maladjustments or learning disabilities. CSDM employs 15,000 ranking it among the largest in the metropolitan area of Montréal.

Purpose: 

CSDM is one of Montréal's largest employers and is responsible for 112,000 students. Public Address (PA) and building security are top of mind for CSDM. They have set a standard for their PA and Intercom Systems across the entire school board. They want consistency and reliability, and have found it in TOA.  

Challenge:  

The school board requires a simple PA System for gymnasiums with the ability for their Intercom system to pass through the gymnasium and interrupting the PA System when required (in daily use or emergencies). 

IP Intercom is used throughout the school board to manage the institutions buildings. Intercom allows the school to indicate class scheduling by signaling a bell (class change, or start/end of class), manage all entrance ways, communicate to each classroom from the office (and vice versa), and to be able to communicate across the school. 

Solution: 

Commission Scolaire de Montréal relies on TOA's products for both Public Address and building security. In the gymnasiums, they use a pair of HX-5 Compact Line Array Speakers in a 70V configuration (using a MT-200 Transformer). The speakers provide gym sound for public address like assemblies and other activities hosted in the gym. The speakers are powered by an A-724 Mixer Amplifier which will allow the IP Intercom to pass through the PA system providing important messages as required. A Synthesizer Tuner is included in the system to provide FM and AM stations in FM stereo broadcast. The system also includes Wireless Microphones for easier communications. 

127,000 people is a lot of people to ensure are safe at all times, during daily activities or In the event of an emergency. The school board trusts TOA's IP Intercom System to keep their institutions safe at all times. They can manage entrances, signal class changes, and communicate from office to classroom and throughout the entire facility. 

CSDM is so pleased with TOA's solution that they have mandated that this system is their standard when replacing or installing a new Public Address or Building Security system. 

Products Used: 

  • HX-5 Compact Line Array Speaker System (MT-200 Transformer)
  • A-724 Mixer Amplifier
  • DT-930 AM/FM Synthesizer Tuner
  • A-5000 Series Wireless Microphone System
  • N-8000 IP Intercom

Edmonton Remand Centre, Edmonton, AB

Located in Edmonton's north end, next to the Edmonton Young Offender Center, the New Facility for Edmonton Remand Center can house up to 2,808 inmates in 10 different pods of units. The property covers approximately 16 hectares of land (about the size of 27 CFL football fields).
To control and monitor the facility, keep it secure and to communicate intelligibly with multi-zone paging, the Edmonton Remand Centre is using TOA's IP Intercom System, complimented with the A-9000M2 Series Modular Digital Mixer/Amplifiers, with modules, and TOA's F-2000 Series Wide Dispersion Speakers. The IP Intercom consists of several IP network exchanges (N-8000EX) and IP Multifunction Master Stations (N-8000MS). The A-9000M2 Series Modular Digital Mixer/Amplifiers are supported by modules including, ambient noise control modules, dual mic/line input modules with DSP, RS-485 Control Module, Input/output control expansion modules and remote panel with volume control modules.

The New Edmonton Remand Centre is being constructed using a direct supervision model, considered to be a 'best practice' throughout Canada and the USA. The majority of correctional facilities in Alberta currently use direct supervision, which is an inmate management system that places staff face to face with inmates and gives them the skills and tools to manage inmate behaviour. Correctional Peace Officers (CPOs) are stationed inside of the living units and are not separated from inmates by any physical barriers (e.g. windows or walls). They maintain direct and frequent contact with the inmates in their work area and use this interaction to build effective working (Taken from Government of Alberta, Solicitor General and public Security website.)

Tsawwassen Terminal, British Columbia Ferry Services Inc., BC

BC Ferries, Tsawwassen Terminal was experiencing communication (audio overflow) and intelligibility issues. To improve communications and the audio, Tsawwassen Terminal installed over 100 of TOA Canada Corporation's SC Series Paging Horns strategically aimed to reduce reverberation (echo) and improve clarity.

Intercom failures and short comings lead to introduction and implementation of TOA's N-8000 IP Intercom System. The intercom system being used for terminal wide intercommunication. The system relys on several of TOA's 900 Series Amplifiers and Mixers for paging and security gate entry points.

The result of this TOA upgrade has provided the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal with clear and intelligable sound, and has many local residents happy because they no longer hear the Tsawwassen Terminal's paging at their homes!
