During a dispatch alert, the G2 ATX Station Controller processes the alert at the fire station, and then returns an “acknowledgment” back to the G2 Communications Gateway located at the dispatch center. The ATX alerts any combination of room zones using individual lighting, messaging and volume control in each zone.

The ATX Station Controller stores the station configuration and alerting locations in memory. It can easily be configured and updated remotely through our encrypted Web interface, over a private network. The ATX computer features a secure, embedded oper­ating system that runs on a high-speed flash memory. It also has a touchscreen display for first responders to view station alerts.

G2 ATX Station Controller Interface

The fire department may add G2 peripheral devices (e.g., station alerting message signs, speakers and special lighting) to the Station Alerting System located at each fire station, as needed. These alerting devices can be integrated easily via a simple change to the Web configuration.
