It provides interfaces to all common audio accessories such as headset jacks, footswitches, speakers, desk microphones, a NENA telephone interface, and more. In addition, it incorporates an Intel i3 COM Express computer. This computer provides the user interface and does all the VoIP communications, utilizing the audio system via an internal USB connection. All of your dispatch position electronics in one sturdy metal enclosure.
AUDIO SYSTEM FEATURES:
The Mindshare 100500 MAXplus is designed specifically to satisfy the unique audio requirements of a dispatch console position. By utilizing the 100501MJ the MAXplus can support two dual ¼” TRS headset connections. The MAXplus can support eight 100508MS speakers, allowing for any sound configuration desired by the dispatcher. The 100508MS speaker contains its own 9W amplifier powered over the standard ¼” TRS audio cable. No power cords are required for each additional speaker, which greatly simplifies the wiring of the position. The MAXplus audio section also supports both electret and dynamic microphones. Other included interfaces are two relay outputs, NENA telephone interface, dual footswitch inputs, Select and Mix 600 Ohm balanced recorder outputs. Recorder outputs can also be sent to a recorder over the network by VoIP.
The processor portion of the MAXplus is based on an industry standard COM Express single board computer (SBC). The SBC runs the Linux operating system. Linux provides a more stable operating environment and a better multi-tasking environment for high-reliability communications systems. In addition, storage is provided by a solid state, industrial certified, SATA hard drive. External USB ports are provided for mice, keyboards, and touchscreens. A single 10/100 BaseTX connection connects both the SBC and the audio system to the network through an internal network switch.
Never before has a dispatch position been integrated as tightly as the Mindshare MAXplus. An audio system designed specifically for dispatcher use and easy maintenance, and a highly reliable integrated computer system inside the same box. Space for new equipment will never be a concern again.
