The paging consoles provide the same functionality as the buttons on the front of the A 4595. If a tone is triggered by the main unit or a wall plate the corresponding LED on the paging console will illuminate. A paging microphone allows the user to speak over the tone being played. Connection is made via Cat5e cable with a maximum range of 300m and up to 4 paging consoles can be cascaded together. Each paging console must have its own ID number which is set by DIP switches on the rear of the unit.
