Ensure important audio messages are delivered loud and clear across hazardous Class/Division 1 / Zone 1 environments with the fully ATEX-certified Axis XC1311 horn speaker. Due to the built-in amplifier and horn form-factor, this standalone explosion protected speaker can communicate audio over long distances and in noisy industrial environments. Issue live vocal announcements, or schedule pre-recorded messages using the included Axis Audio Manager Edge software, providing users with full flexibility over remote content management.

Effortless integration with a standard IP network means this speaker can broadcast messages upon cameras detecting analytics events such as smoke detection or personnel not wearing appropriate PPE. The included bracket supports both wall and ceiling mounting, whilst PoE support reduces installation costs with power and network connection supplied by a single cable.

Recording and Audio Management

This speaker comes with Axis Audio Manager Edge preinstalled, allowing basic management of content for music and live/pre-recorded announcements. Specify up to 20 zones within installations and schedule when and where to play specific content across an estate of multiple speakers. Prioritise content to ensure urgent messages interrupt the schedule. Remotely monitor the health status of the speaker to ensure optimal performance.

Available recording and audio management options for this device:

Example Use Cases

  • Hazardous industrial environments - warn personnel of potential dangers including early signs of fire, equipment overheating and gas leaks. Ensure procedure compliance, such as the wearing of PPE, with audio messages. Deliver periodic instructions and call meetings. Request specific personnel to attend incidents.
