A maritime public address voice alarm system is installed in commercial and passenger ships and oil platforms, and allows a single user or group of users to address the passengers and crew with the use of a microphone or prerecorded messages through installed loudspeakers. It must be specifically developed for continuous use in very aggressive operating environments.

In case of passenger ships, the system can also be used for background music distribution where it is required, using the same loudspeakers. It may support zoning, so separate zones or combinations of them can be addressed, while the background music volume adjustment or program selection is possible per separate zone.

A maritime public address voice alarm system has to work when needed, meaning during an emergency – and, therefore, all its components are fully monitored constantly (the microphones, processors, amplifiers, loudspeakers, cablings, etc.) so at all times the user will know that it is operating correctly or if not, the user will be notified in time in order to repair it. The system is also backed up by batteries so even during a mains failure, the system will continue to operate. A/B redundant system topologies are also supported.
