Some English company manufacturing audio intercom systems went down the drainage beginning of the nineties last century.
Their German importers ran into a problem – without the English intercom system. Started to manufacture its own system.
Josef Becker, MD of this company, started to have a similar system manufactured in Germany, adding additional components and added features. This was the beginning of axxent intercom. The first year of axxent intercom was 1992 – almost 20 years before now.
It started with a two channel master station, 19": MS-200, a belt pack BP-100 and a signal light LP-100.
1994 axxent developed a ½ 19" loudspeaker station CP100, that also was able to function as a small intercom main station – very useful today, as 19" components close to the f.o.h. place become scarce.
1995 The one-channel master station MS100 came into the market with the unique feature of a cigarette lighter. Many f.o.h. mixers liked this feature, although today practically no-one is allowed to smoke inside a hall.
2003 2003 was the official start of axxent as an independent company – before a subsidiary of a distribution company. Intention was to start production of installation audio amplifiers and to increase the number of intercom components to offer a greater range of these components to customers.
2004 This year marked the introduction of a first series of installation amplifiers – low impedance, two channels, between 150 watts to 800 watts per channel. A one channel audio delay was introduced – with very simple adjustment of distances from 1 meter to 99 meters.
2005 Two amplifiers with 100 v outputs were added – models AX-2120T and AX-2240, 120 watts, respectively 240 watts per channel. Both amplifiers are in production today and installed in Germany in great numbers and in Europe as well.
2006 The first one-channel installation amplifier (AX1121T) was developed, with 120 watts and low impedance, 50 v, 70 v, and 100 v output. Customers liked this model very much because of passive cooling and the flexibility the outputs provided. A new intercom belt pack BP100V was introduced with a unique vibration alarm module.
2007 To complement the amplifier developed in 2006, axxent introduced models AX1240T and AX1400T with higher wattage of 240 watts and 1400 watts.
2008 This year, axxent introduced call signal lights with led's, colored in red, green, orange and yellow. Additionally, a seven channel input audio mixer GMX2500 with multiband limiter was first manufactured – intended for use in entertainment environments. The mixer could be used with 19" rack ears inside a rack or without the rack ears as a table top mixer.
2009 The mixer introduced in 2008 came with four 100 watt amplifiers inside – model GPX2500.
2010 A first automatic power mixer was developed, providing five mic/line automatic mixing inputs, plus aux inputs and 240 watt output – low impedance or 70 v/100 v. Main application is in churches and the passive cooling of this power mixer makes it ideal for this application.
2011 We developed a series of four channel amplifiers for fixed installations: model AX-4120TS and AX-4240TS. Power of each channel is 120 W, respectively 240 W into 4 or 8 Ohm loads, in addition to 50 V/70 V/100 V constant voltage outputs. All amplifiers feature high quality fully isolated output transformers, isolated to chassis and ground.
2012 We developed 2012 a four wire adaptor FW100. The four wire adaptor is needed to connect our partyline intercom components with four wire intercom systems. Four wire intercom systems use two wires for listening and two wires to speak. Our four wire adaptor serves not only the interconnection, but, it also enables alarm functions between the systems. Also, level between systems may be adjusted
In our installation range of products we developed and manufactured an induction loop amplifier for the first time. Loop amplifiers are needed for hearing impaired persons to drive an installed loop, within which the hearing impaired via their hearing aid equipped with a "T" coil receive clear speech and music. Our loop amplifier may drive large loops up to approximately 1000 sqm and it has the singular feature that it may be adjusted to drive smaller loops.
