Chemring Australia Greater Geelong Victoria

Chemring Australia is a supplier of countermeasure flares for Australian, US and International F-35 operators, in addition to a range of sophisticated electronic systems. Their state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Lara, Victoria is the world’s most advanced countermeasures manufacturing facility.

Chemring engaged us to design, supply and install an IP PA System that integrates with an Avaya IP Phone System. The project brief wanted all Avaya Handsets to dial an Extension for the PA System and make announcements. Music needed to streamed to the production areas at certain times only and cut-off when an announcement was made.

The design consisted of 2N Horn Outside IP Speakers, 2N IP Wall Speakers and Ceiling Speakers connected via CAT6 Network Cables to existing Ethernet PoE Switches via multicast protocol. For the Interface to the Avaya IP Phone System we used the Algo 8301 IP PA Scheduler which supports multicast and music streaming. To control the music streaming we used a 2N Web Relay in conjunction with the 2N Automation Program resident in all 2N IP Speakers.
