The Pertronic EA60 Amplifier is a 60 watt audio amplifier for F220 and F100A fire alarm systems. It is designed for occupant warning, public address, background music, and other applications.

The EA60 features high-quality sound, a versatile range of easily-configurable options, and a built-in audible signal generator. It is suitable for all non-emergency and emergency applications.

The built-in audible signal generator provides a wide range of emergency and general purpose signals and announcements including the evacuation and alert signals specified in AS 4428.16:2020 and NZS 4512:2010. Additional signals including custom voice messages are easily added via the USB connection.

The EA60 also has three audio inputs suitable for local and/or remote microphones and external audio sources including background music.

An on-board keyboard and LCD display provide menu-driven configuration of operating settings, announcements, signals, and test and management features such as output load measurement. Configuration files can be saved and loaded via USB, allowing a single configuration file to be copied to multiple EA60 amplifiers.

With a large number of easily configurable options, the EA60 satisfies a wide range of audio system requirements.
