A Mercury intercom system is built on one or more Mercury Interface Units, PCI Cards or USB devices connected over a standard IP network. These devices, known as Mercury hosts, have varying capacities to suit your specific operational requirements. The Mercury Interface Unit (MIU) offers the highest capacity of the Trilogy range of Mercury hosts, acting as a versatile audio processing unit and IP gateway which allows a wide range of external devices to be connected to the intercom network.
The MIU is a 2RU rack-mountable multi-purpose device that provides multi-channel interfacing with radios, conventionaly and VoIP (SIP) telephony, balanced and unbalanced audio interfacing, and other capabilities over terrestral and/or satellite IP networks. The MIU can also operate as a standalone system for up to 32 users in close proximity (up to 1500 ft from the central unit) or as part of a peer-to-peer distributed network of other Mercury devices supporting virtually an unlimited number of users. The MIU can be equipped with any combination of up to four optional expansion boards, each with 4 or 8 ports (dependent on type) giving a maximum capacity of 32 ports in a single unit.
Optional Expansion Boards include:
700-25-06: Mercury Interface Unit (MIU)
700-11-01: Audio Expansion Board (AEB)
700-15-04: Telephone Interface Board (FXS)
