Warehouse Intercom System
A warehouse intercom system, also called a wireless PA system for warehouses, is usually used for trying to
get the attention of warehouse workers to give them all a message or to have
one of them call back.
To keep from having to run wires all over the warehouse
where they can get damaged by all the movement going on, we recommend
installing wireless public address (PA) speakers to broadcast a message to all
staff, and then if an individual staff member is needed, they can walk to
wireless intercoms or callboxes spread throughout the warehouse to return the
call. Alternatively, they can use a handheld radio to respond.
The office will use a desktop base station wireless intercom
to transmit and receive calls. It has multiple channels so you can leave it set
to Channel 1, which will be the channel used to broadcast messages to the wireless
PA units spread throughout the warehouse.
The intercoms in the warehouse will be set to Channel 2 and
when workers call in the intercom in the office will be set to scan the channels
and it will lock in on that channel so the office can talk to the warehouse
worker. That way conversation can take place without being broadcast over the
Wireless PA units.
In the warehouse you can use a couple of different intercoms
for the workers to call back. The wireless callboxes are durable enough for
outdoor use and they only have a single button so there is nothing that can get
changed by employees.
The same base station used in the office can also be wall
mounted at various locations in the warehouse. The downside of this is users
could change the channels, but you can program it with only one channel.
At full volume setting the wireless PA units will output 102db
at 12 feet away and 84db at around 100 feet so if properly located in the
warehouse one PA receiver can cover a good amount of floorspace. You can also centrally
locate a unit and add an additional speaker to each receiver for a little
greater coverage area.
So using these products you can build a warehouse intercom
system that will solve your warehouse communication problems. If you need some
