510ACS Announcement Control System
The 510ACS is the system of choice for airports, large healthcare and government facilities, and command centers where a large scale system is required to support a large number of paging stations, zone outputs, and message traffic. The 510ACS may operate as a centralized head end or as multiple systems distributed over the network.
New installations and major expansions will normally be installed as fully digital networked systems. This architecture would include:
- 510ACS Announcement Control System (paging and messaging controller)
- Digital Series Paging Stations
- Titan Series Power Amplifiers (network DSP processing and power amps)
- Titan Series Collectors (ambient analysis, relays, logic I/O, etc.)
- IED Enterprise Software
- System Server
For legacy ACS installations, contact IED to discuss if digital or analog equipment may be best suited for your scope of work.
9000 Series Titan Amplifiers
Titan series DSP power amplifiers and collectors are network appliances that provide signal processing, modular power amplifiers, and supervision testing. The Titan series is designed to move signal processing and power amplifiers to the edge of the network for greater flexibility, higher reliability and lower installation costs. When controlled on the network by an IED announcement controller or DSP node, the Titan series places amplifiers close to speakers and collectors close to sensors to reduce costly cabling.
All IED power amplifier systems are designed with high efficiency Class D operation for low power consumption and reduced cooling demand.

Audio/Visual Paging Integration
IED created the first system to integrate visual paging with audio paging in 1996. That system was designed to fulfill the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act in accommodating individuals with hearing or vision disabilities. Today as visual display technology has proliferated in most public spaces; visual paging is a common and expected customer service.
For visual paging to be effective, visual messages must play together with aural messages automatically, without requiring separate initiation or duplication of data entry. Without fully automatic operation, systems are not fully utilized since few users are willing to consistently perform additional steps.
All IED systems are designed to tightly integrate audio and visual announcements with a single system server and announcement controller. IED’s patented technology allows data display controllers to dynamically control the scroll rate of displays to maintain synchronization of the text and the aural announcement regardless of message length or language. Other technologies that simply start announcements together quickly lose synchronization, and don’t provide the comprehension reinforcement of eye and ear coordination.
All IED announcement and message applications create visual content to match aural messages.
