EASE Evac provides an intuitive tool for designing acoustic mass notification concepts in a room, hall or building complex. The 3D simulation software calculates the distribution of direct sound levels as well as total sound levels, the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and speech intelligibility (STI, ALCons, CIS).
EASE Evac runs on almost every modern Microsoft Windows computer. The following parameters can be seen as an appropriate basis:
This document explains the download of User Keys via AFMG Licence Manager and the procedure in case your computer does not have direct internet access or your security settings do not allow the direct download of the User Key.
For everybody new to EASE Evac, we have a nice, 90-minute tutorial webinar online now. Come to grips with EASE Evac easily. Get to know all the important parts and possibilities quickly and get to work right away!
For best performance save the high-quality video to your local drive.
Use QuickTime Player or any multi-codec player like VLC for playback.
In the Options dialog (see page 14 in the Users Guide) on the Environment page you can select Imperial Units. This will then use ft, lbs, °F for all parts of the software.
First you need to select the voltage of the system on the Room page. Then you will be able to select from the available taps on the Sound Sources page or in the properties window.
All floor plan room geometry must be traced from imported drawings or image files using the drawing tools in EASE Evac. The import process does not translate directly to the room geometry.
Supported formats are AutoCAD DXF, Google Sketchup and various image files such as PNG.
At the moment, EASE Evac supports typical ceiling loudspeakers and regular point source loudspeakers for wall mounting. Line arrays and steered column speakers are not yet supported.
In order to use loudspeaker data in EASE Evac, you need to have this available as a .GLL file. These files are either already included in the AFMG loudspeaker database for EASE Evac or, in many cases, can be downloaded from the respective manufacturer’s website.
