The Cloud Electronics PM range of paging microphones is primarily designed to provide zone paging facilities when used with the Cloud Z4 and Z8 zoning mixers.

They are also compatible with any products that offer “closed contact access” for paging purposes.

Four models are available and they differ only in the number of zones which can be paged, and therefore how many zone selection buttons are available on the microphone.
