The Plena two-zone call station is a modern, high quality call station with a stable metal base design, a flexible microphone stem and a unidirectional condenser microphone. It can make calls to selected zones in a public address system built with the PLE series two-zone mixer and mixer amplifiers. In addition to tabletop use, the Plena design allows neat flush mounting in desktops.

Gain, speech filter and intelligibility
This call station features selectable gain, a selectable speech filter, and a limiter for improved intelligibility.
The call station has a balanced line level output, giving it a maximum range of 200 meters from the mixer, when using CAT-5 extension cables.
With the loop-through RJ-45 connector, it is possible to daisy chain multiple call stations.
The priority is automatic i.e. the call station nearest the mixer has priority and can override a call station further from the mixer. When a call is being made by a higher priority call station, a yellow light will display on the lower priority call stations.
Dip switches and status
DIP switches at the base of the call station select different microphone gain levels, chimes, and the speech filter. A service accessible rotary control provides microphone level attenuation. LEDs on the call station show which zones have been selected. An additional LED give visible feedback on the active state of the microphone and the system:
- Green flashing means standby (chime is sounding)
- Green indicates microphone active • Amber indicates a higher priority call
