Novanex OnAlert™ Emergency Messaging LED Display and Clock Model OAX2-EC



Fill the gaps in your emergency management system by adding a visual text messaging solution that doesn't need an AC outlet.  Power-over-Ethernet technology gets power and data over one Ethernet cable to bring emergency messaging to those areas in your facility that don't get cell coverage, or in areas where high noise levels prevent audible alerting.  An alert speaker and flashing strobe light call attention to the message display.  When an active message is not displayed, the sign uses SNTP to connect to a time server to retrieve accurate time and date.  Multiple time and date display options are available.

Our 16x96 pixel LED display will regularly access your emergency messaging provider account and display any active messages your organization has initiated.  If your mass notification system uses Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) or Real Simple Syndication (RSS), Novanex OnAlert can securely integrate with your provider.  Leading integration partners include Omnilert (e2Campus), RAVE Alerts and other major suppliers of emergency and mass notification systems.
