Intelligibility Software from System Sensor and AFMG Technologies.
System Sensor announced that new Intelligibility Software from AFMG Technologies will enable designers and installers to save time and money. The software allows users to voice evacuation systems by preplanning the system to meet new intelligibility code requirements, reduce costly post-installation changes, and limit over-design. Powered by the proven EASE professional sound design technology, Intelligibility Software is scaled specifically for life safety professionals, so design is quick and intuitive. First, import the room dimensions and characteristics. Then, arrange speakers with desired settings and locations to obtain a prediction of intelligibility scores and sound pressure levels. For documentation, Intelligibility Software provides a printable PDF of the completed project inputs and prediction outputs, which can then be included in the job file, submitted to the authority having jurisdiction, or used as a device placement guide for installers.
