Connect the PC to the FACP USB port using a standard USB cable. ECS-NVCM will use the USB on the
FACP (See Figure 11-8). ECS-VCM will use the USB port on the ECS-VCM.
Run the Voice Message Load software.
Select "Read from Panel" to read a message and store onto your hard drive, or "Write to Panel" to transfer a

Press "Start" to start the transfer.
11.9 Network Paging
For Network Paging Network paging allows live voice paging between panels across the network. The ECS-
NVCM, Network Voice Control Module, is needed for network paging. For more information see ECS-Series
installation manual P/N 151455.
The network paging source panel is the panel in the network that the microphone network paging audio is
originating from. One panel in the network can be the source panel at a time.
A network paging destination panel is a panel in the network that is receiving the network paging. Many panels
can be selected as a destination panel for the network paging. Network paging functions as an all call on the
destination panel(s) - all speaker circuits will be activated with the network paging audio on a destination
panel.the following need to be considered:
Local microphone is higher priority than network paging (a user can page from their local panel even if the
local panel is currently receiving a network voice page).
Network Paging is higher priority than alarm and alert messages/tones
Network paging uses a VBus channel. In a dual channel system, network paging will use either VBus 1 or
VBus 2. If both buses are in use, network paging will overtake one of them.
