Sounds Like Success: Mass Communication and Notification Solutions for Industrial Applications

Industrial environments are complex and require communication and notification on multiple topics. Many leverage audio and visual notification technology to enable this.
In this Sounds Like Success miniseries on industry-specific applications for mass communication, Brad Jungemann, Territory Manager Southeast, Singlewire Software and Michael McCormick, Senior Regional Sales Manager, AtlasIED talked about industrial applications.

“Just like any other application, communication is key to people in those areas. They need to be able to hear and understand messaging, then react to it,” McCormick said.

The types of messages vary greatly. According to Jungemann, it could include reminders about protective gear and best practices aligning with OSHA guidelines. “There’s also an intuitive scheduler that allows a safety manager to schedule announcements from one location,” he added.

Often industrial settings are noisy, and McCormick noted this means making sure the appropriate audio is in place and that visuals are available, too. On the visual side, Jungemann said “facilities can use color coding and change displays.”

In outfitting industrial locations, the system’s design is imperative, and that’s something Atlas IED offers.
“When customers come to us, we talk about scope and what they want to accomplish. Then we design a system that includes plotting speakers, audio levels and the bill of materials needed,” McCormick shared.

In addition to safety, weather or emergency notifications, systems can also support GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output) regarding machinery like maintenance requests, breaches, chemical sensors and tie-ins to other hardware like fire alarms.
