A new lineup of optional IP interfaces allows expanded system operations. These include: the N-8000AL Analog Phone Interface, which allows any standard analog phone to be used as a master station. The N-8000AF Audio Interface provides audio signal connections to paging amps, playback sources, recording devices and schedule clocks. It also incorporates a built-in bell scheduler and tone library for classroom change signals. Up to 16 different schedules of 64 events each may be programmed. The N-8000CO Outside Line Interface provides access to an outside telephone line for dial-in calling, paging and control, as well as outbound forwarding of calls made to master stations. Lastly, the N-8000DI Direct Interface provides contact ins & Outs for control of paging amps, door/gate access, CCTV camera call-up & LED status panels. It may accessed by standard controls or dialing commands from any master station on the network.

Note: Running the N-8000 Software requires Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express. Please be sure to download and install both programs for full software functionality. When using software version 3.00 or 2.02, all N-8000 devices on the network must have firmware version 2.0 or higher. Instructions for updating the firmware are located in the N-8000 system manual under: "System Settings Using the Browser: System Management: Updating Firmware."
For customers continuing to use original N-8000 products only and who do not require any new features or functionality, you may update the firmware in your components to v1.41. This includes the following N-8000 models: N-8000EX, N-8010EX, N-8000MI, & Q-8540WP. Please note- ALL system components need to be updated to the same version firmware to ensure reliable operation. The firmware for your product(s) can be found on the TOA Data Library by clicking on the following link: http://www.toa-products.com/international/. Just enter the model number and follow the appropriate link (for U.S. models please use the "CU" version download)". Then click on the Software (firmware) link to download."
Note: Components with 1.41 or earlier firmware will not work with GUI software v2.00 or later.
