HelixNet Digital Network Partyline System uniquely delivers all features and functions of industry-standard partyline systems with digital audio clarity as well as IP connectivity to any digital network. Not only can HelixNet operate over any standard shielded twisted-pair cable (microphone or CAT5/6), but all audio channels, program audio and distributed Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) can run on a facility's standard IT network infrastructure via an Ethernet/LAN connection.
HelixNet is the first digital partyline system that provides up to 24 intercom channels and audio program in a 1RU. All channels and audio program feed, along with power for 20 beltpacks can be transmitted over a single cable. Multiple Main Stations can be seamlessly linked to form a networked system; thereby allowing any two of the beltpack channels to access any system channel. The all-digital system is immune to electro-magnetic interference and ground loops, reducing ear fatigue after extensive use.
HelixNet has user-friendly and intuitive controls that make it easy to operate and configure. The system can be wired using a standard single pair shielded(16AWG-24AWG), AES-rated or Category cable—no rewiring of an existing in-house cables. HelixNet comes with interface module option bays for integration with 2- or 4-wire intercom systems or for intelligent networking of HelixNet Main Stations.
