Cloud Electronics PM4

The Cloud Electronics PM4 is a 4 zone paging microphone for use with the Cloud Electronics mixers.

The Cloud PM range of paging microphones is primarily designed to provide zone paging facilities when used with the Cloud zoning mixers and multi-zone Mixer Amplifiers (via analogue interface).

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.

PM4 - 4 Zone paging microphone
PM8 - 8 Zone paging microphone
PM12 - 12 Zone paging microphone
PM16 - 16 Zone paging microphone
