Description

The METS 2000 Emergency Communication System is a 100% Australian designed and manufactured product. It is the culmination of 20 years of experience in design, manufacture, installation, commissioning and maintenance of voice communication systems, on major project sites, in some of the most extreme environments in the world.

METS 2000 is designed to provide immediate response to a distressed caller. By simply pressing the button, on the front of the help point pillar, a call is initiated. Calls are automatically directed to a response centre where operators answer either by lifting the telephone handset or by touching the flashing screen icon, of a calling help point, on the sophisticated, map based, touch screen graphical user interface, (GUI). The operator has the option of placing calls on hold and choosing which calls to answer. However, by default, calls are answered in the order in which they were initiated. Calls can only be terminated by an operator.

The GUI provides a detailed view of the status of the entire help point network at a glance. The system is automatically self tested on a regular basis and faulty help points are displayed in red and logged. The system maintains logs of call activity, testing and faults which are displayed on the GUI. METS 2000 can be linked to other systems such as traffic control and video surveillance systems. All call activity and faults can reported as they occur to these systems.

METS 2000 is a very versatile product. Systems can be cabled via optical fibre, dedicated copper cable, GSM, radio and leased line. The central exchange equipment and the response centres can be centralised or distributed to allow operation of the system from multiple sites.

The METS 2000 system operator consoles incorporate the latest LCD displays and surface acoustic wave touchscreen technology for immediate, one touch, call handling. Display resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels allows detailed true graphical road maps to be customised for each system.
