The backbone of the new system is the compact N-8000EX Exchange which supports 16 stations and occupies only one rack space. Features include a 10/100BaseT port for connection to standard network hardware and two paging audio outputs. Larger systems can be easily configured with up to 192 exchanges and 3,072 stations. The economy N-8010EX IP Intercom Exchange, featuring one speech link, is available as a lower-cost alternative to the four-link N-8000EX IP Intercom Exchange. The N-8000MI Multi-Interface Unit features telephone interface, BGM input, paging outputs, control signaling plus functions as an interface to legacy TOA EXES intercom systems. In addition, the N-8400RS Exchange uses a new line of 4-wire substations. These allow easy retrofit and upgrade of existing 2 & 4-wire systems. The RS-140 call button panel operates on the new 2-wire exchanges but is designed to work with a 25V PA speaker in classroom applications.
